Nobilis Fic: The Origin of FireNobilis Fic: The Origin of Fire4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The Estate that we now quaintly name "Fire" was once the
Abhorrent weapon Holocaust, whose ever-shifting blades
sundered the passion and beauty from everything they touched,
leaving behind only cold dark ashes. What's more, its effects self-
propagated, turning beautiful landscapes into barren wastelands.
Fire was claimed for creation by the Light Lord Prometheus
(then Imperator of Hope, Clay and Food Preparation), who - after
stealing it from the Excrucians - bargained with a mighty being from
the Lands Beyond Creation for the methods of its reforging.
The price was steep, and he is paying it even now - every month,
the otherworldly envoy known as the Bronze Eagle shows up
to feast upon the Light Lord's essence, his liver - and his
pain - in a week-long process.
Prometheus, though, is perfectly content with his lot - he greets the
creature like an old friend - for with Fire, Humanity has conquered
the world, and Prometheus would have payed a far steeper price for that.
Angels and DemonsAngels and Demons5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Almost everyone has heard of Angels and Demons. Despite the ancient Pact, which suggested that they would have to always get along, they are just too different. Their wars shake the Earth, rattle the stars of Heaven and boil the magma hidden within Hell. And, unless the Inbetween step in, the Divine and Cursed beings will bring us to the end of the world.
The Inbetween are the peace keepers among these beings. Where Angels are pure good and Demons ultimate evil, an untainted Inbetween has no choice but to be neutral. When tainted, an Inbetween is a deadly force for whichever side they have joined. However, the only way to taint one is to either have them gaze upon a Divine being or have them meet the eyes of a heavily-tainted mortal.
Once, long ago, there was the War of the Angels. This was an Earth-shaking event, though it didn't actually happen on the Earth. The War of Angels, which was Angels versus Demons, occurred in the Inbetween. The Inbetween is somewhere in the middle, roughly

Unable to pin point his elusive target, the Death God turned away from the, now black, glass. He clasped his large, white hands behind his back. Behind his neutral mask, was a face of pure worry.
Soul took Maka's hand, lacing his firm fingers through hers. He flashed his fang-toothed grin, and transformed.
"Alright," Maka sneered, her eyes locking on her prey.
Her own target was a fast demon. A challenge, though it hasn't been a Kishin very long, Maka could tell but the lack of corrosion on its soul. She was taken aback by how fast it took control of its powers. But, the shock subsided, and she was ready to kick its ass!
"Let's get it, Maka!" Soul cheered.

Yuuki Cross breathed in the aroma of rain and freshly cut grass. Treasuring the beautiful smell, she let out a long, dreary sigh. It was night time at Cross Academy, and Yuuki was on her daily patrol. The wind ruffled her short chestnut hair as she gazed at the moon. Its soft glow always soothed her at least, that was the reason she told anyone who asked. Deep down, she knew that the moon didn't just glow. It had the same colour and sparkle as a pair of eyes she knew very well. A small smile played across her lips as she imagined that person's luminous eyes, his moonlit hair, the graceful curves of his neck, his pale lips...his pearly fangs, that were so often stained with blood...
Snapping out of her trance, she shook her head, and returned to her duties.
"Thank goodness, a peaceful night..." she sighed. She began heading back to the Girl's Dorms, wh

Were they visions of this girls future? Strange, but a lot of them seemed to involve him in one way or the other. True, he had never met the girl, but he knew so much about her from his dreams. They always told him about major events that happened in her life, such as the first time she learned to ride a bike, the first time she'd read a book, the first time she saw her father with another woman.
He knew so much about her, yet she knew nothing at all about him . . .
Even though he saw the scenes play out, he never did know how she felt about them. For, she had never shown any emotions towards theses certain circumstances. Never did he see a tear being shed, or a sob escape from her lips, or even a whine of complaint. He figured she just buried it within herself, then let it out when she was alone. And it seemed she was alone very often.
Or maybe the dreams just weren't very reliable . . .

"Soul we're going to be late for school," Maka yelled as she banged on his bedroom door. He always took forever.
"Chill Maka it takes me a minute, I have to look cool," Soul said as he was about to open the door, not knowing that Maka was right in front of it, about to bang it again. So Maka accidentally punched him in the face.
"Oh Soul I'm so sorry!"
"It's ok Maka I'm fine," Soul said holding his hand to his eye.

I almost ran a child over when driving on my motorcycle on the way to school. The kid looked about 10-years-old had black hair and blue eyes; deep blue pools, he had. I was this close to driving straight into him while I was in a daze, thinking of Maka screaming for me with Mr Albarn laughing and driving a knife into her stomach when I heard a scream resonating from the boy. I slammed my foot on the break and managed to halt 10 centimeters from the boy. He had tears in his eyes and his face read fear. He stared at me for a second and I stared back. He then turned and ran off onto the path and carried on running. I saw that he had a violin case on his back – I wish I had run him over now. Wes plays the violin.
School felt different. Black*Star wasn’t by my side, yelling in my ear. A week ago I never knew who Maka Albarn was.

There he was, staring at her, the same albino beast that had protected her last night.
She gasped in shock, not taking her eyes off his. He let out a small whimper before he plummeted to the ground borrowing his head between his paws and glancing up at her.
"I'm going to get some shut-eye now," He mumbled closing his blood red eyes, "But I don't want you leaving my side, got it?"
She offered a small nod before adding, "Why?"
He let out a small sigh, contemplating something in his head. One eye cracked open, meeting hers again, "Because . . . I don't trust them."
"Why?" She repeated.
He groaned, shutting his eyes again, "Look, if you don't want to be killed, I suggest you stay here until I wake, okay?"
She hesitantly nodded.

Chapter 1: Something Lately Drives Me Crazy
Gray stepped up to the guild hall just as Lucy burst through the doors. He barely had time to step aside and let her by before she stomped past him, not even saying hello. No tears were on her face, although she was sniffling as if crying. Instead, he saw fury in her eyes. His hand reached out for her as she stormed by, but he stopped himself. He was not good at dealing with emotional girls anyway, and he had no clue what happened. For all he knew, Happy said her butt looked big in that skirt. Instead of calling out to her, Gray continued to go inside the Fairy Tail guild hall and walked straight to the bar. The best person to ask for gossip was, after all, Mirajane.
"Yo, Mira, an ale and tell me what's up with Lucy."
Mirajane got the beer going as she explained. "Lucy and Loke just broke up."
"Well, that was quick," Gray mumbled, not that he was too surprised that their relationship lasted less than a week. "I figured he'd c

On good days, he would simply clutch a liquor bottle in one hand and his broken heart in the other, staring at the picture that hung on the wall. On bad days, he would scream and shout and blame the world for his misfortune, making Maka hide in her bedroom until he passed out from intoxication.

Chapter 2: Tell Me Why I Feel Unwanted
Lucy fumed as she stomped through the summery streets of Magnolia. Not only had her relationship with Loke ended far too soon—she had no time to play with him at all—but he almost ruined it for her. If she had not slammed his gate shut and forced him back to the Spirit World, he would have told the whole guild about her dark secret.
Damn that Lion and his keen instincts! He saw right through her intentions from the very start.
What was worse was that dating Loke got no reaction out of Natsu at all, not like the delicious shock he had shown when she began going out with Laxus, and the flaring jealousy he displayed when she went for Gajeel. That choice had nearly ruined her friendship with Levy, but it was worth it to see Natsu fuming. Served him right for breaking up with her!
She was not done tormenting Natsu, either. Maybe it was mean, maybe it was not at all like the sunny face she showed to everyone at the guild. Sh

Soul tromped down the street, glaring at the cracks in the side walk. His fangs glistened in an ever present grimace, while his mind whirred with memories. Finally, his patience melted away and after trying to cuss out loud and being scolded at from a passer-by for it, he resorted to grumbling his thoughts out loud.
"Who does she think she is?! Like it's my fault!! It's not always me that screws up, yet she never mentions that! No she only mentions when I mess up!!!!"
Soul snarled and a stray dog walking by whimpered and ran into a nearby alley. Soul stared after it and sighed, then continued walking and mumbling.
"Seriously, though, when do I ever get mad at her when she messes up? I don't! But she gets ticked at me for even the simplest slip ups! And it wasn't even my fault?"

A Week Later, New Year's Eve
Lucy was in the guild hall late at night to celebrate the arrival of midnight. Cana was on her fourth or fifth drinking contest, beating everyone dumb enough to challenge her. Mirajane and Gajeel stood on the stage singing a duet. Natsu was nowhere to be seen. After five days of harassing Lucy, he had withdrawn. Some feared he might quit the guild, but Lucy knew Natsu had too much love for this group to do something that drastic. He would sulk, he would probably not want to speak to her and Gray for a long time, and eventually he would go back to being the same wild, destructive, playful Natsu she knew.
It took her this whole week to know for certain where her heart belonged, but it would take Natsu much longer to accept that choice.
Suddenly, the whole guild began to count down. More and more voices joined in as the seconds ticked away. By ten seconds, the whole guild was shouting the numbers as boisterously as po

Fairy Tail GrayLu fanfic, Rated T for language and mature situations.
A one-shot told in two parts (because DA said it was too long as a single file.)
It was winter, the time Gray loved best and hated most. Winter was the season of jollity, refreshing snow, a time when the world was cleansed as white as a bride, pure and unstained by the travesties of Man. Winter was also a painful reminder. The snow made him think of his home, happiness with his parents, crushing heartache when his town was destroyed and his family and friends stolen by a demon. The cold that felt so good on his skin also reminded him of Ur and Lyon, that brief time of happiness before the rest of his world was stolen away by the same demon.
A blizzard had settled over Magnolia since Christmas. Whiteness hid the festive city like a death mask at a carnival. The only thing colder than the wind that day was Gray's heart.
It had already been six months since Lucy married Natsu.

Maka didn't seem like the kind that would keep dolls.
That's why when the white-haired boy entered her room to find her sleeping among a large pile of them, he was surprised.
He didn't know what was more shocking - that for once she wasn't awake, or the magnitude of the plush toys surrounding her.
Soul slowly approached her bed and squatted down next to her. Maka was breathing slowly, looking very content. The olive-skinned male sighed and reached out his hand.
The toys were soft, but her hair was softer.
"Makaaaaa-" the male drawled out softly. His fingertips trailed her bangs as he mindlessly adjusted them. He placed his palm flat against her head after a while, but the girl was still asleep. Soul could feel a small smile creep upon his own featu

A melody from the piano in a living room awakened me. Soul wasn’t by my side. He was playing the piano? He never played usually.

Maka sat on the back of the bike, watching the world go by as she held tight to Soul. His spiky white hair blew freely in the wind, and to avoid her eye from getting full of albino hairs, Maka buried her face in between Soul's shoulder blades. His muscles tensed and relaxed under her cheek. She breathed in the smell of his hair, his jacket, and everything. It was almost overpowering, before she realized that that was the smell of Soul. It was subtle yet to much, but she couldn't get enough of it, it was like freshly baked bread to her, wonderful. She blinked in surprise, 'did I just go on a spiel about how Soul smells?'

In the city, a lone man walked. He wore a black trench coat, along with a black hat, dark gray shirt underneath, black pants, and a silver tie blowing in the wind. He was unusually tall, and his stride was brisk and quick. Perhaps the most unsettling thing about him, besides his inhuman height, was the painted bandana on his face, which bared a frightening, sharp-toothed grin with piercing yellow eyes. Poking out from underneath the bandana was a lit cigarette, holding up the fabric enough to see a little bit of black blood and sharp red teeth.
This man was known to humans, by urban legend, as ‘The Pretenderman’. Most of the population didn’t believe he existed; that didn’t bother him. Although ‘The Pretenderman’ was more of a formal title, he was known by others like him as Zehnder.
