"Hello, Ichigo," Urahara said, fanning himself. "Are you here to visit Ms. Kuchiki?"
"Yea," replied Ichigo. "She's right through that door," gestured Yoruichi. She smiled. "And she's awake."
As Ichigo went through the doorway he was surprised to find Rukia sitting vertical in her bed surrounded by dozens of her own drawings, and working with great concentration on another.
"Wow, you've certainly been busy," said Ichigo smiling. Rukia looked up from her work, completely unaware that Ichigo and herself were in the same room untill this moment.
"Oh, hello, Ichigo," she said with a suppressed pleasant-surprise in her voice. "How are you?"
"Oh, I see."
"I can see you're doing much better," said Ichigo, taking a seat beside to her.
Rukia smiled. "Yes, much better."
Ichigo looked down at what she was curre

"Did you just ask me for girl advice, Ichigo?"
Ichigo quickly removed his hands to revel his blushing face. "Of course not!"
Bleddyn was smiling mischievously. "Yes you are, Ichi."
"N-no!" he was blushing heavier now.
"Ichigo, just admit it."
"No! Theres nothing to admit!"
Bleddyn's smile grew to Cheshire Cat status.
"Ichigo, if you admit that you're asking for girl advice, I'll help you out."
They both sat in silence. Ichigo didn't want to ask Bleddyn, of all people, for girl advice, but he would do anything to make Rukia feel better. Especially for not bringing her a get well present and because he still believed that he was the reason she was injured in the first place. After every passing second Ichigo's face grew a shade redder while Bleddyn's smile grew larger. Bleddyn knew Ichigo would cave in soon.
"I'm... asking you for girl advice."
"What? I can't here you, HURRR."

Bleddyn took refuge under Ichigo's bed; in the dark and out of harm.
Ichigo sighed and said quietly, "You can't hide in the dark forever."
Ichigo sat on the floor waiting for him to show his face. Moments that seemed to last eternities passed. Bleddyn slowly walked out. He was wearing the same agonized expression that he did earlier at Urahara's.
"Its my fault. Rukia... could have died." His eyes were filled with tears.
"Hey... Look at me," said Ichigo. "Look at me."
He waited until Bleddyn's eyes met his. They were so dark and penetrating it took Ichigo moments before he could speak. "Sometimes in life bad things just happen." His father told him those same words once.
Even though Ichigo still believed that he himself was the reason Rukia almost died, he felt he had to say something; he felt he had to help Bleddyn. He didn't want anyone to feel as bad as he did. Ichigo sat on his bed.
"Here, why don't you sleep on the end of my bed tonight?" suggested Ichigo

The sounds of Rukia's footsteps disappeared as Ichigo swung away at the Hollow who, even though had only one arm now was able to block all of Ichigo's attempts of shattering it's mask.
Ichigo then heard a scream.
It was Rukia's voice.
"RUKIA!" he yelled in the direction of her scream, hugely concerned; his attention completely focused on Rukia's well being.
The Hollow took Ichigo's moment of distraction as an opportunity to make an attack. He got his arm slashed badly by it's cat-like claws.
Full of rage and worry, he decided to end the fight quickly.
He stood back holding Zangetsu tightly in both hands and yelled "GETSUGA TENSHOU!" A blue beam of energy was released from the large blade, completely destroying the Hollow's mask. It howled loudly as it's existence vanished.
Ichigo ran as fast as he could toward the direction where he heard Rukia's scream, completely forgetting about his heavily bleeding arm. He spotted her unconscious body by the water.

"The first was found in the local park chasing the soul of a girl. Rukia Kuchiki took the soul of the girl to safety while Ichigo Kurosaki eliminated the Hollow.

It all started with a scream from under the bed.
"Rukia," said Ichigo tapping on the closet door.
"Hold on a second, Ichigo, I'm changing."
There was rustling from under Ichigo's bed when they heard a scream; Kon came running out from underneath.
"What is it, fur ball? You scared me half to death!"

Growing Pains Are Part of LifeYou're not going to grow without the painGrowing Pains Are Part of Life4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A life without growth is dreadfully mundane
You're a fool if this lie you truly believe
It's a wonder that people can be so naive
Unexpected words can leave scars on the heart
An overload of emotions can rip things apart
Real growth takes place when things are in tatters
How you cope with the stress is what really matters
You are going to get hurt and that is a fact
The best you can do is brace for the impact
Though it hurts at the time experience makes you strong
When you're struggling these lessons will help you along
I'm aware that these words come across very blunt
But if you run and hide your growth you will stunt
Because sooner or later life will strike you down
And if you cannot swim I'm afraid you will drown
Don't get it in your head that life's an endless assault
Jaded thoughts shouldn't be stored inside the red vault
Life isn't a cakewalk but is sure isn't hell
If you can't wrap you head around this I wish you well

"Hey.. Mae? Is that you?" called out the nicely dressed Roy Blackwell.
The male was wearing a black pin striped tuxedo that was nicely pressed. It was complimented with a white collared dress shirt and a satin red tie. His dark hair was styled and tousled with gel for the special occasion.
He had spent the entire night searching the crowd for Mae. He saw her silhouette from where he stood and was certain it was Mae.
"There you are. I haven't seen you all night. What are you doing out here?"
The scent of cinnamon candles drifted in the air and pleasant holiday tunes could be heard coming from the packed mansion. The Blackwell family was known to host some of the greatest parties. However, this did not perk even a bit of interest in the young girl that leaned against one of the mansion's pillars.
As he approached the girl, his grey eyes widened.
Mae turned her body in the direction of the familiar voice. Her soft face was paired with nude glossy lips and a slight hint of blus

Heart isn't AloneHeart isn't Alone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Heart is blind without the mind to imagine
Yet the Heart is alive and it beats that speaks our soul
Heart does not function alone
But it's the Center of it all.
Our mind unites the five senses
The mind process what it hears
The mind creates what it sees
The mind evaluates what it smells
The mind appraises what it tastes
The mind senses whatever the body touches
The mind is only a machine without its core.
Heart and Mind connect
Because it's the most important to protect
It's a bond that is part of us ever since we were born
It beats our fear
Oh, NepetaOh, Nepeta4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Nepeta stood silently in her room, staring up at her mural of her and Karkitty. She gently placed a hand on Karkat's side, her eyes beginning to tear up.
2 AM, where do I begin?
Crying off my face, again.
The silent sound of loneliness,
Wants to follow me to bed.
She sat down on the floor and curled up into a ball, leaning onto the mural. She stared at her shipping wall on the other far side of the room, her eyes drifting over to the picture of her and Karkitty. She slowly crawled over, licking her shaking pointer finger and erasing Karkat's side of the heart. Leaving it blank, she crawled back over to the mural.
I'm a ghost of a girl
That I want to be most,
I'm the shell of a girl
That I used to know well.
Nepeta thought back to her ancestor, The Disciple, and Karkat's ancestor, The Sufferer. Beginning to sob, she curled herself into a ball again on the floor. She remembered the one time she tried to hug Karkat, the one day in which the humans called 'Valentines day.

Summary: Larry takes Ahk out for a date to see a concert
Comments: *please enjoy, this muse was being a bitch to me *
Ahk had been rather excited about the whole thing for several weeks now. He had no idea what Larry was talking about; all he knew was that he was going to see a concert with Larry at one of the many New York theaters and this concert involved strange music. Time and time again, he had asked Larry about this concert, but got a rather flippant answer or the subject was changed several times. After awhile, Ahk got the hint and gave up asking. If Larry wanted to surprise him with whatever this concert was, then he'd go along with it.
Larry had given him several hints early on but refused to repeat said hints or elaborate, which made the whole thing that much more exciting for Ahk. How he loved a good challenge! Usually he was good at figuring things out, but this time he wa

Her Mother's Love
Coraline hated that sound. The sound of her mother's sharp nailed but otherwise soft and slender hand striking against her face or against her fat bottom. But the sharp pain rippling across her skin was far worse. She could still feel it for minutes afterwards and the red mark took quite a while to disappear completely.
Why did she always strike her? Did she really misbehave that much to deserve such treatment? It would actually have made a lot more sense to Coraline if her corporal punishment was absolutely constant. Because she knew her mother loved her; the young child could remember as clear as a bell the times her mother would take her lovingly into her arms, stroking her blue hair delicately with her seemingly just as delicate fingers. It was a wonderful warm feeling; it made her feel so secure and safe. How could her mother love her, but be so prone to hitting her at the same time? That was what left her so confused.

The first time Eridan talks to Nepeta, it is out of boredom, desperateness, and with a dash of spite. His fingers poise over the correct keys to log into Trollian, then pull away with uncertainty too many times to count. He grumbles to himself about how much he hates things: how much he hates this guest computer, how much he hates the humans, how much he hates magic, and for a moment you'd think he was a taller, ironic version of Karkat.
Than that desperate part kicks in, and he logs in, typing as fast as he fucking can so he doesn't have time to stop himself.
He doesn't log on solely to talk to Nepeta. He logs on because he's lonely, and he's looking for people who aren't busy. He scans the list of trolls who are online, hoping to spot someone he can get a good squeeze out of. Feferi's not online but Sollux is, and he is of good mind to finally confront the dual-horned bastard. He'd like nothing more than to share some blackrom with the lowblood
Alliances (pt 7)Karkat's back room was small, but well stocked. It had a decent-sized recuperacoon, a small fridge/freezer with a toaster oven and a microwave stacked on top of it (that was probably breaking some kind of fire code, but Nepeta wasn't complaining), and a small chest of drawers topped with a bookshelf. There wasn't an inch of wasted space. On the other side of the room was a desk with a lamp on it, even though a bare bulb dangled from the ceiling, and a door, which led to a bathroom. This contained a toilet, sink, mirror, and teeny-tiny shower. There wasn't room to swing a cat in there, that was for sure!Alliances (pt 7)3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

What had started as humoring her had escalated into daily meetings, into an actual relationship casual as it was. Had even turned into conversations and smiling.
He could smell it. The sickly, disgusting, greeny-yellow blood of hers. Could feel it pulsing through her lowly veins, could see it rise to her ugly cheekbones. It made his stomach twist and his fingers twitch and his temples not his heart, of course not pound without mercy.
She was stupid. She had remained oblivious to the sideways, 'you're boring me' glances he had given her. She had invaded his personal space, his mind, his thoughts, time and time again, with an ugly-bright smile she had been holding in all day for him. It felt exactly like playing with a kitten. Even if you hated cats, it's a kitten, it wants attention, you can't say no to it.

But when she'd asked nicely for permission to go work on her shipping wall, he had said yes. And here she was.
She found herself starting to get caught up in thoughts of Karkat again as she stepped on the transportalizer to take her to the lab.

When she arrived, she quickly scanned the room for Equius. There he was, talking to Kanaya. Kanaya? Well, okay. Not wanting to interrupt, Nepeta hesitated for a moment with one foot half-on the transportalizer. Aradia hadn't said her talk with Equius was urgent. Perhaps she should just leave him alone?

I couldn't stop thinking about it. This sick fear poisoned my brain, almost paralyzing all my limbs. I tried to breathe slowly, calmly. It didn't work. Completely failed, as if someone was chasing me.
