Sit Happens - Chapter 1Rain fell down upon him just like when he'd left Magnolia. Only this time, he didn't return as Gajeel Redfox. The Dragon Slayer had been on a rather difficult mission, one which was borderline S-class. A town had requested a strong mage or a team because they had a 'witch' problem. Or in other words, there was a woman who claimed to be a witch and terrorized the whole town.Sit Happens - Chapter 14 years ago in Romance More Like This
When Gajeel had said woman cornered in a fight, he'd noticed quickly that all her magical power came from a strange amulet. So she was just a wannabe-mage without any magical potential.
He had used his magic to tie her up with a few metal bands. But she whispered a spell before he could take the amulet away. At that time he thought she couldn't finish it. Now, Gajeel knew better.
After he had caught the witch, he took his reward and left without looking back. It was a long trip back to Magnolia since that freaky woman had damaged the railroads between the two towns.

Cosplay tipsHello and thank you for reading this!!Cosplay tips7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Okay Let's start!
1) I've met alot of people, and I would ask hey do you cosplay? And some awsner: No because I am to fat...
Okay NOBODY is to fat to cosplay okay? Everybody is beautifull in his or her own way okay? I know anime-chara's can me intemedating sometimes.. but they are drawn! People make them as beautifull as they but more importantly the audiance want! It's like that in every anime! Girls are most of the time showed as gentle, soft skin and big eyed people. Men are drawn more stronger, speak more and their eyes aren't so big (unless you happen to watch a shojo or yaoi) Villans are most of the time strongly build men or really bitchy women (most of the time they have large breast too) So you will never be as perfect as an Anime chara. You will never be! Nobody will ever be!
Also alot of people who say: I'm to fat to cosplay. Never been to a con before, let me promise you this: NOBODY will get laughted at at a con. Because people who ar

She stopped many times, attempting to catch her breath, only to be startled out of her rest by angered, pained shouts of her name in the distance, seemingly growing closer with each pause.Ib Fanfiction-The Forgotten One-Chapter 23 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Eventually, the staircase ended on a small, empty platform...with no visible exit. She looked all around, nothing, and the voice was growing more frantic and louder. Ib could now hear the echo of footsteps getting closer and closer.
Ib began to panic, running around the landing, looking for anything, ANYTHING that could help her out. She suddenly tripped and hit the wall, which suddenly tore open and gushed red paint for a moment before revealing a tight, ragged hole in the wall. It was pitch black and cold emanated from it, but the voice and footsteps were growing louder: "Ib? IB?! Where are you?" she had no choice. She jumped straight into the hole, hitting her knee on the edge and scrappin

The portrait man walked up the stairs slowly, his thoughts slowing him down. She knew all this time...and she had hurt him so...was she really worth keeping around?...no, no. That was no way to talk. She was his beloved Ib, why would he give up on her so easily? It made no sense...and yet, that feeling still nagged at him...her cold, painful worlds...he thought he was beyond pain by now...
Ib collapsed against the outside of the gallery, breathing heavily from running for so long. She could feel him getting closer...that false monster... no way out. She looked around, looking for anything that she could use...anything, when something caught her eye behind the small sign ahead of her.

Rising to her feet, she looked around, finding that she was in a blue hallway, which went in two directions, both ending in sharp corners. Peering around the closest corner revealed a black expanse, but walking around the other corner Ib found another blue hallway. She walked down the hall, nearly reaching the next corner when a sudden swishing noise went off from the wall next to her. Turning, Ib saw a message scrawled on the wall in purple paint: "Hi there Ib! Take me with you!" Ib jumped as something smooth brushed her leg. Looking down, she saw a small pink rabbit with red eyes nudged up against her leg.Ib Fanfiction-The Forgotten One-Chapter 53 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Hah Yeah. I suppose you could say that," he sighed in response, stopping long enough for the dark haired girl to catch up with her leisurely pace.
"Perhaps a walk might brighten your spirits?" she suggested with a smile, walking past Ash, whom followed and matched her pace after an awkward pause.
The two made their way through one of the winding mountain passes in utter silence; Reina seemed not to mind, though the lack of chatter was starting to make the farmer boy feel unease in his gut. Even so, he dared not be the first one to break the peace, as he was full aware of the fact he would just let a tumble of complaints pass his lips as soon as he did so. Which would

"Hey Lillian," Ash breathed, also leaning over the fence so now their faces were only inches apart. Lillian could smell his minty toothpaste he had probably used only minutes before. "What brings you over here?"
"I came to see how your farm was coming. I see that you got another sheep." Lillian smiled brightly, pointing at a youngling, taking cover under the larger sheep's legs.
"My mom bred her," Ash said proudly, then looked back into her deep blue eyes. He thought Lillian reply but he was already in his own little world.
Without any hesitation, Ash lifted her chin with his finger and kissed her lightly on the lips.
"I love you," Ash whispered, putting his forehead against hers.
Lillian blushed and smiled widely. "I love you too."

The hallway was blue-walled and covered in paintings of women...the Lady in Red, the Lady in Blue, the Lady in Green, and the Lady in Yellow, all torn up, some hanging half out of their frames, their eyes or arms missing, leaking all colors of paint. Throughout the hall were also many broken, headless statues and shattered mannequin heads, all beyond repair. As Ib passed one of the Ladies in Red it reached out towards her, moaning in a distorted, animalistic voice. Ib jumped away and ran to the door at the far end of the hallway, shaking.

The Madness of GarryPurple, dark, creepy; those were many of the words Garry would use to describe the area he was in now. But, the area he was in now was not the thing Garry was so creeped out by. Hauntingly, the blue doll's big red eyes stared up at him. He shivered at the thought of having to touch the thing, but it had to be done in order to get the paint ball inside it's bulging stomach. He reached for the doll slowly, but the already strained seams that held the dolls stomach in place popped, and what rolled out was a red ball of paint. The purple haired, skinny man reached down and touched the slimy paint ball, not surprised as the coldness from the ball disappeared along with the paint ball. He knew that it would be in it's proper spot on the pedestal in the other room, so he wasn't worried or even surprised as he had been the first time.The Madness of Garry3 years ago in Horror More Like This
