Kairi runs down the beach of Destiny Island looking for her good friends Riku and Sora. She had found a video camera, something shes never encounted before, it was exciting. Her legs rush towards the sea, spying the two boys spashing each other childishly in the water. Sora pushes his hands and water forward towards Riku getting him even more wet. Riku blocks with his arm with a smile on his lips.
"Hey, what was that for?" Riku chuckles placing his hands on Sora's head and dunking his head all the way down into the water. He lets go after a few seconds swimming back towards shore.
"Sora!! Riku!!" Kairi calls running towards them, her feet reaching the water stopping right before it hits her. "Come look what I found" her smile large and innocent, she pulls out her video camera. Her fingers wrapped around the camera aiming the lens at the emerging boys comng from the water. Sora swims towards Riku and once their feet could touch the ground he jumps onto the boys back wrapping his arms ar

It has come to my attention that not everyone seems to see the logic behind why two men in Kakashi and Iruka's positions might find themselves drawn to each other in ways that might surpass the otherwise bland work-oriented relation which they currently hold within the animated show of Naruto. This matter is perplexing, and I have come to the conclusion that in an attempt to do justice to the reasoning I hold, I would formulate these reasonings in one coherent place. One would hope that this is the same reasoning as all the others in this fandom, and that the creation goes beyond the common fall-back of 'who can we shove with whom?' I understand that there will always be a few in any fandom who base their fandom on how good two characters may look together, though I tend (and I hope others do as well) to lean more towards characters that share more than appealing features.
Both Kakashi and Iruka lived through the attack of the Nine-tails and the secret third war, and each suffered grea

It had been a few weeks since New Years, and the second half of the school year had begun with the completion of Finals. Haku had done well (upholding his 4.0 GPA), but his mind was on other things, namely the surprising kiss Zabuza had given him on New Years.
"Sai-gege?" he asked one night, writing a letter to his parents in the room he shared with his foster brother during the long weekend that came after Finals were over.
"Mm?" Sai said.
"I am very confused on something." he said. "There is someone who I believe likes me for something I am not, and I do not know how to react."
"Aww, honey, is that why you've been down?" Sai said, looking away from his magazine. "I noticed that you've been rather sad and quiet lately. Why does this 'someone' like you?"
"I do not know." Haku said, holding his legs close to his body. "I do not understand much about him; h

There was a time when I was eight years old. It wasn't a terribly eventful time. Basically, my mother took me to the mall and we window-shopped. Then we left. That was it. That was the time.
It was the results of that time that were rather stupendous.
Apparently, as I would learn later in life, we'd walked past a security camera or two on our way out. The tape would show a little girl holding tightly onto thin air as she walked energetically through the mall while talking her own ear off. Someone noticed thi

Part 1: Life and Death
Many often spoke of the price of life. Philosophers in nearly every civilization had dedicated their entire lives to speculating on it. One race had even attempted to build a computer the size of a city in an attempt to quantify it. But whatever the price of life was, one thing was sure: It was steep.
It was sometimes easy to forget just how precious life could be after gaining immortality and leading a life of warfare. The Maximal who called himself Gunslinger was not only gaining a lesson in perspective, but economics. Security work paid dirt, even in the slums where guards were paid relatively well. Nevertheless, he had been scrimping and saving for the past thirty years, working until he had enough energon to build a new body one part at a time and grant it the gift of life. He had even sacrificed maintenance on himself and his blue and yellow paint job was mostly worn away. Though, it was hard to tell in the shimmering violet and blue hues of light pr

Raito sighed. "Tennis," he said tiredly. "Thanks, mother," he added politely, and threw in an insincere smile to please her. Grimacing, he got up from the chair he was sitting in and headed for his room, preparing to do some serious thinking.
His plans so far had failed, in regards to L. And in addition to that, Misa was now adding to his rapidly growing headache. She would have to be told of his plan; otherwise, he would lose an indispensable asset to his plan for a better world. Fortunately, so far L had been completely clueless. So clueless, in fact, that it was really almost adorable.
Raito stopped short in the doorway of his room and replayed that last thought with growing shock. "That thought did not just hap

"Akilik! Kil, wake up!"
Akilik rolled on his stomach and pulled the pillow over his head with a groan. He would've kicked his brat of a little brother out of his room if it hadn't required getting up.
"Go away, Az. Too early."
"Nuh-uh. Mom says up."
The bed shifted slightly, and then a weight landed on the small of his back, nearly knocking the air out of his lungs. Two small hands reached up and snatched the pillow he was shielding his head with.
"No. Get off."
The newly commandeered pillow hit the back of his head with a muffled 'thump'.
"Have you forgotten what happens today?"
Akilik actually had to think about that. What was it that was supposed to happen today? Mom's birthday? No, that was last month. Eja Khea celebration? No, that wasn't till the next new moon, and it was almost full last night. Midsummer? That was in two days. But wasn't there something before… Akilik shot up so fast that Azeem fell off the bed with a yelp.

She couldn’t believe that she and Szayel…they had…

A chill wind was blowing outside as Tenten stared out the window of a dimly lit restaurant. She eyed the soft blanket of snow that had fallen the night before, wishing that she could indulge in her child-like urge to go outside and play in it. But Tenten soon pushed away such thoughts when she was reminded why she was there.
She was carefully nursing a glass of wine, making sure not to overdue the drinking before her date arrived. A few tables away sat Hinata and Lee, carefully keeping an eye on her to make sure the guy was a perfect gentleman. With a wave of his hand, Lee made sure his teammate knew that he was still there. Hinata simply blushed at all the attention the taijutsu master in training was creating for them.
"And nothing he or Hinata says can stop me," she added as she waved back to him,

Smother me in your warm embrace.

So, lovingly you can show me.

"6 years, such a long time; approximately one third of our lives, and we still have yet to let him go," she sighed.
"Did you ever think we would?" her companion beside her asked stonily, as he gazed at the rushing waters below the bridge where they were standing; the same bridge that used to be the rendezvous point for the long dead team 7.
It was a long time since they had stood together on that bridge; it seemed like only yesterday they were there together complaining of Kakashi's chronic lateness with their other teammate silently propped against a tree, wordlessly mocking their antics.
Tonight, they were there, not by pre-arranged meeting, but by chance of coincidental thoughts. Not so coincidental, considering that night was the anniversary of that fateful day; the breaking of team 7.
They had been reminiscing of their past genin life together, recalling happier moments such as trying to unmask Kakashi-sensei together, passing their genin survival exams, completing mi

Raito had planned everything. Perfectly.
He had gained L's trust. He had made sure L could get more comfortable with him. He had even drunk a doubleshot espresso to ensure that he wouldn't fall asleep this time. And then L had agreed to come home with him.
His work was now laid out straight before him.
He led L into his apartment, giving him a pair of slippers to put on at the door. L refused them and slipped off his shoes, revealing bare feet. A vein in Raito's forehead twitched visibly as he forced a smile.
"This way," he called, leading L deeper into the apartment, towards the bedroom. "Would you like some tea?"
"No thank you Yaga—I mean Raito," he said absently, his eyes scanning the room's interior. A bed was set in the center of the room, with nightstands on either side. A desk sat on the opposite wall. There were no decorations, nor anything that would make the room look remotely friendly. Just plain, austere furniture.

I waited patiently in the car for my partner Phil to open the passenger side door for me. Even though it was already night time, the air was still thick with humidity. The car ride to SuperPet wouldnt have been so miserable if it hadnt been for the fact that Phil, conscious of rising gas prices, refused to use the air conditioner.

If nothing else, having his loyal Welsh Corgi by his side helped lift the poor guys spirits; usually I was the only one trying to help him figure out the truth.

It was a bright, sunny day [gah…I can't believe I used this cliché] in Konoha and a bouncy, youthful blonde-haired boy walked happily down the street with a pocketful of change. There was a grin on his face as he hurried over to his favorite candy store, well; it was the only candy store that let him inside the store's premises.

As he made his way there, he noticed several glares; he was used to it; that was just a daily occurrence in Uzumaki Naruto's life. The glares couldn't bring him down though, for the impending sugar-high was enough to raise his spirits,

The sun comes out,
But it's still dark.
But I'm still cold.
Alone in the darkness,
In the cold emptiness of my soul
There shines but one light;
The light of vengeance.
With each step,
This light grows stronger.
I bruise and bleed
But feel naught.
I pull my blade from its sheath.
A protection I never had.
It slices through the air
And through his skin.
I am surrounded by light
It envelopes me in warmth,
As does the blood that cloaks me.
The sun has come out, and I welcome its radiance.
