Alternate Universe: Also known as AU. A fanfiction that has been written in an alternate universe means that, although the author uses the characters of a series, the storyline is different.
An example of alternate universe: Edward Elric has lost his arm and leg in a car accident instead of during his attempt to perform human transmutation.
Crossover: A crossover means two or more series are used when writing a fanfiction. The intention is often to create a parody, though this is not necessary.
An example of crossover: Edward and Alphonse Elric are searching for the Philosopher's Stone, as well as Harry Potter and his two friends. The two groups can work together, or view it as a contest of who gets to the Philosopher's Stone first.
Disclaimer: A necessary addition when one is writing fanfiction or drawing fanart. A disclaimer must always refer to the original creators of the series, book, film or game you

Chapter Five: Sweet Kisses
Tadase and Amu walked a little farther outside of the garden than Kukai and Utau had gone, and as soon as they found a nice clearing, they stopped walking.

No sooner had she spoken those words, she felt Tadase's lips crash onto hers.
Amu blushed a bright red, possibly even a dark red.
Tadase gripped her hand and wrapped his other arm around her waist. Amu closed her e

Growing up you told me you would love me no matter what. You weaved dreams and possibilities in front of my eyes, and assured me no limits existed.
I'm your Sister.
As children we squabbled over toys and candy, and played together on the playground. We were two peas in a pod, and nothing could stop us from staying close.
I'm your Niece.
You were the one who spoiled me when I came to visit. I felt I could always talk to you, and you always told me you were there if I needed you.
I'm your Cousin.
We were the ones always getting into trouble, weren't we? You were the one I thought of as a friend, and confided in when the grownups' words didn't mean anything.
I'm your Mother.
From the moment I knew you were growing inside of me, I was in love. You were my whole entire being, an essence of myself, and I raised you the way I was raised, surrounded by love.
I'm your Aunt.
Frequently you call me up on the phone, asking advice and talking for hours. You look up to me, and I a

I had arrived early to school because my teacher had assigned me to clean up the music room early. Or rather, punished me by making me clean the music room for doing bala-balance in the middle of class. I blame Kusukusu. My mom had dropped me off happily because it meant that she could get to work on time. Having finished earlier than I intended, I was sitting on the bench of the piano. I currently had my iPod on and was listening to an American song called "ordinary day". The other day I had looked up the transalation and it's recently become one of my faveorites. It has a bittersweet feeling to it that I love. I mean, that's my life, isn't it? A comedian who loves to laugh, but she can't because of arguing her parents.
I also rather liked this song because somehow, it had intertwined itself with a dream I had recently.

"Oh, hey Dento." I huffed.
"What's wrong, grumpy"? His lips twitched ever so slightly.
"NOTHING'S WRONG." Huff, what a kid.
There was silence and I was afraid I had hurt his feelings. I look over saw him laughing.
"DENTO," I screamed smacking him in the stomach, oh no but that doesn't stop him; he just sits up and continues chuckling.
"You know Iris; you're kinda cute when you get mad." He gave me and wink and got up, still chuckling.
Huff. What a kid! Oh well. I flicked the piece of grass, and decide that I'm too bored and lazy to get up. I fall back into the cool grass.

I glanced over at my best friend, Rima, to see what she was doing. The petite girl seemed to be doodling in her notebook, and she looked just as bored as I felt. At the moment she seemed to be drawing a picture of a girl, who seemed to be slightly vertically challenged, with wavy blonde hair that cascaded around her shoulders and down her back. Next to the girl was a taller boy with long purple hair that seemed to be swaying in the wind. All this was drawn inside a big heart, which she was accentuating with a pink highlighter. As soon as I saw this I immediately blushed, because the two people inside the heart were obvio

We could've worked
We had a chance
Why couldn't you see
Our great romance
I know you cared
I know you worry
But still you did it
With no hurry
You kept on pulling
On my strings
You showed me love
But now it stings
You acted nice
But said mean things
Had me confused
But I found my wings
You broke my heart
You ripped it out
But it will heal
There is no doubt
I will be sad
I'll shed some tears
But in the end
I'll break my fears
I will move on
I won't look back
I'll leave you lying

It was the day of Eleanor's graduation, and I was seriously running behind schedule. I had intended to buy her a rose from one of the flower shops on Main Street, but when I got there they told me they where all booked out. So, to my great dismay, I was forced to make my way to the other flower shop on the same street. That flower shop. I avoided that place like the plague, but this time I had no choice. I had to get that rose.
After half-running for about two blocks, I made it to the shop. I paused in front of the door and tried to steady my breath. One glance at my watch told me that I didn't have time to hesitate. I stepped into the store and walked straight over to the cabinet where they keep their roses.
"How can I help you?" asked soft voiced woman.

Well, the title of this piece promises a guide to writing for and about kids. This is an all-encompassing phrase that, I hope, will grab anybody who wants to write for or about any characters between the ages of about nought and eighteen. So, is this the part where I reveal that this guide is actually more limited than that? No it is not! At least, I have done my very best to cater to all possible needs, with the following handy headings:
Issues and Obstacles
The Voice of the Child: Advice on Writing Dialogue
Childrens Literature and the Narrative Voice
Young Adult Fiction and the Teenage Voice
I admit it: this guide is not going to be short, and while it is not going to be excessively long either, it will try to answer every question I have been able to anticipate.

Death the Kid was found lying on his stomach, perfectly in the middle of the bed staring at the TV that was recently installed in his room. Liz was found sitting on the floor leaning against the bed, reading a magazine.
Kid turned his head to look upon Patty and the stuffed giraffe in her grasp in mild amusement.
"Patty saying my name once is suffice, now what is it?"
"I just remembered! There's a new cartoon on and I just gotta watch it!" Patty pointed at the TV as she explained her logical explanation for nearly breaking down the door.

The Little Things
Author's Note: Yes, I'm back with yet ANOTHER Tsustar fic! So I kinda really love that One Direction Song "All the Little Things". It's super cute and inspired me! Black Star is a loud mouth and self absorbed, but even egotistical ninja's are observant and grow up at some point. *ONESHOT*
Disclaimer: Don't own Soul Eater… or the song… but this fic is mine.
Black Star wasn't very well understood. Maybe it was because he wasn't necessarily the most charismatic or whatever you'd like to call it. He wasn't sophisticated like Kid or smooth like Soul. He didn't engage in intellectual conversation like Ox, have some brooding, mysterious thing about him like Harvar, OR do whatever it was that Kilik seemed to do that had the girls calling lately. He was who he was. He liked high places, announcing his greatness, and being in the spot light. He liked eating massive portions of food, pla

From the moment I saw Her, I knew she was the one. Her beautiful blue eyes resembled the colour of the sky on a bright summer's day. They twinkled every time she smiled, and she smiled a lot. Her blond hair was silky soft. It was cut on a short bob, and Her mother had given her a tiny hairclip to keep her bangs from covering Her eyes. God bless that woman.
One day, our group went on a picnic in the park near our kindergarten. I had asked my mother to give me some of her homemade strawberry juice to take with me. With that sweet nectar, I planned to woo my sweetheart.
The day worked out even better than I had imagined. The teacher told us to find ourselves a walking buddy. This was my chance. All I had to do was to ask Her to be my buddy before anyone else got there. I looked around but I couldn't find Her. Where could she have gone, she was just there

Nellis- StormEllis curled up tighter under the blankets, twisting them around in his fists and pulling them up to his mouth. Hot air fanned back up his face as he breathed into the fabric, trying to calm himself down enough to fall asleep. He wished that he hadn't asked Nick to stay downstairs to watch the weather channel. Without the body heat of his lover to envelop himself in, it was proving difficult to ignore the storm outside that was shaking the house.Nellis- Storm4 years ago in Romance More Like This
The constant pounding of rain and gusts of wind against the outside walls made it borderline deafening. A rumble of thunder that made the glass of the windows rattle against their frames had Ellis burrowing down deeper under the covers. Lifting an arm up, he pulled the blankets completely over his head. They tugged against the rest of his frame, half of them wound around his legs from all his tossing and turning.

You snuggled into your pillow, a soft smile on your face, the calm pitter-patter of the rain hitting your window creating a rhythm that kept you in dreamland.
That was until the combination of thunder and lightning caused your ears to ring and nearby cars' alarms to go off.
You bolted up in your bed, eyes wide open and watery. That had scared the living daylights out of you, and the fact that you weren't all that comfortable around loud noises didn't help. Your cheeks became stained with trails of tears in seconds, but you wiped the tears away as quick as they came. Reaching over for your phone on your nightstand, you flipped it open after grabbing it and quickly dialed up one of the treasured numbers you know, placing the phone up to your ear, your sobs becoming more violent as the phone rang.

She panted, heart pounding as she stood in the center of town. She could hear the blood coursing through the veins in her ears, sounding like the roar of a distant ocean. Her mind was numb, barely registering where she was or that she was covered with a sticky red substance, the pungent scent of copper filling the air. Her eyes slowly fell to an object on the ground: a stained knife that glinted in the midday sun. Next to it was a growing red pool. Her eyes trained on the pool and slowly moved to its source.
