The Doctor cheerfully sung to himself as he danced around the TARDIS control column. He and the Ponds had just returned from England, 1903, and in rather a rush, too. It seems that the royal family doesn't take kindly to magical blue boxes appearing suddenly at the palace. But, all things considered, they'd made a nice day of it, and also had a tour of the place on the way out. Which was lovely, the Doctor thought.
Amy and Rory had run ahead to get changed before their dinner in modern-day Versailles, leaving the Doctor alone in the console room, happily pressing buttons, and-
The TARDIS lurched to one side, sending the Doctor flying across the room. After a few seconds, he got up slowly, straightened his bow tie and said "Now, dear. What was all that abou-"

River stared down at her diary, her legs folded under her as she read. She had all the pages memorized by heart, but she still enjoyed flicking through them to relive the times when she had been travelling, not sitting in a Stormcage, rotting away.
"Goodnight Doctor Song." Todd nodded to her through the bars, keeping his distance. River looked down at her watch: eleven fifty five. Shift change.
River looked up from her diary. "Christmas?"
"December twenty fourth. I'll be off now." Todd gathered his communicator and paced off down the hallway.
River sat, in a short of shock. Christmas. You couldn't really keep track of days in this place, least of all holiday. How long had she been in here anyways? She hung her head slightly. She had missed the last seven Christmases. The first, she had bee

The Doctor looks around his TARDIS in grief and sadness. He left his companion Martha Jones with her family for the last time. A hand was then on his shoulder and he flinched and glances back to see who it was. It was Reni who was his newest companion, was smiling with sympathy. She had long black hair that was braided into long twin braids and her hazel eyes had a warm radiating feeling to them. Her skin was a light caramel color and she strokes the Doctor's cheek in a reassuring way. Reni was a Time-Lord just like the Doctor and they were the last ones in existence

It had been an accidental brush of hands against head-crests, and the lady of the house had lashed out towards her maid, striking her without warning, and sending their close friendship into a tangled mess of awkward silences and disarray. The strike had been enough to draw blood, and was now a long red blotched scar that ran down the maid's neck. The maid of the household was stood in the kitchen, holding what looked like part of a raw pig, but the mutilated corpse could have represented any warm blooded mammal.

Loss of Me
from Final Fantasy IX
lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
This is a tale, a tale of a man,
iron of glove, and blade in his hand.
Devoted his life to false faility,
duty or death, and blind loyalty.
This is the way, he remained to this day,
`til a young woman showed him the way.
Made him realize, he had his own will
his inner self doubt he was able to kill.
Ill give my life to thee,
my love for all eternity.
And though it may be hard to see,
You grieve for the Loss of Me
If we separate and then,
Ill fight a thousand men.
Just to be by your side,
with my courage and pride.
This is a tale of the Queens Royal Guard,
who over the years, her heart has grown hard.
Lives out her life, on the Queens behalf,
choosing the drawn out war beaten path.
This is the way, she remained to this day,
til a bold knight, showed her the way.
Made her realize, to speak her own mind
and the soul underneath was both gentle an

I just wanted to say, if I don't make it up until this point, we've had an amazing run. I have no idea what is going to happen out there once Anderson and I begin moving the troops, so I wanted to say goodbye. I wanted to say goodbye in case this was the last time I could.

"Ah ah ah, Sweetie, don't pull to hard you might hurt yourself." She continued her small dance around the console.

Endless blood rains from above.
Endless sleep for those who weep,
Hatred breeds hatred,
As hope is lost.
A cycle of blood,
Fuels the flood,
Heroes die in vain,
As darkness reins.
Love conquers all,
But the darkest night.
Sleep but for the nightmares,
As scenes from the past,
Haunt the night.
In evil’s consuming light,
What’s left but the night?
Hope shrivels and dies,
Turning to dust and bone,
As the bane of good,
Snuffs out the light.
For no one’s gain.
A world worn,
Closing to ending,
Selfish needs drown the Earth,
As she fades into darkness,
An eternal curse.
But no one cares,
For crimes uncommitted,
While the world turns away,
The only concern is pay.
Money flecked with blood,
Ensures the endless flood,
Greed rules the day,
While the people pay.
So the Earth shall drown,
In humanities selfish greed,
Her bounty depleted,
She is easily defeated.

''Wah! It's so beautiful!''
Italy was visiting his friend, Japan's home for the first time since a long time, and now, they were strolling around some quieter area, far from Tokyo. Japan had showed him a temple a bit farther from the rest in the countryside, and Italy, which has never quite seen one, before, was positively in awe. It was so simple, yet beautiful. The italian man happily ''vee''ed as he walked around the temple and looked around. Japan let a small smile creep on his face.
There's something sweet and almost kind,
But he was weird and he was loud and unrefined.
And now he's dear and so unsure,
I wonder why I didn't see it there, before...
As he looked at his friend, he remembered the time they first met. He was chatting with some girls while he was supposed to sign the alliance that would make he, Germany and Japan officially become the Axis. It was pretty improper, but Japan had let it pass. Little did he knew that t
