The colors are far more intoxicating anyway.
First teal, then red.
The two colors begin to mingle and the scents dance all around you, sending you into sensory overload. Nothing but powerful wildberry fumes every time you struggle to fill your lungs. It is completely delicious. And makes you feel the slightest bit sick.
Everything around you is wet, heavy, and warm. And yet, you're chilled to the bone. You currently lie in one of two expanding pools of blood. One your own, and one of someone you care more about than you like to admit. Two quickly becomes one as the openings in your chests feed your colorful graves. You can feel that someone's hand around your's, but only for a second before the pseudo-sedatives fueled by the lack of blood in your veins takes over. Now only a tingling sensation remains, a ghost of a comforting touc

"Well, here we are!" She turns to you, putting her hands proudly on her hips with a toothy grin.
You stop short and set down your bags, crabdad just behind you. "Terezi," you say, raising an eyebrow as you look around the massive blue tree trunks, "there's nothing here." You didn't think she was this blind with her other senses.
She only smirks at you and points upwards. Your gaze follows the indicated direction and you gape for a few moments at the massive tree hive complex. The tealblood walks to the nearest trunk and yanks on a rope tied to one of the lower branches. A rope ladder unfurls from the deck above and drops a foot from where you stand.
Your lusus skrees and climbs the trunk behind you instead. Terezi gestures to the ladder and bows mockingly. "After you, dear partner."
You frown at her and sling the bags over your shoulders as you climb, making sure not to look down as the unsupported rope sways with your weight. For a moment you wonder if she can smell fear too. Y

Ever since I was born.
Or rather since I can remember.
I lived in a large house with both of my parents. And they were the only human beings I have ever been in contact with. I've never been outside, feel the warm sun on my face, the wind in my hair, Nothing.
They always said they kept me their because they didn't want me caught up in everything bad going on in the world, But I knew that was a Lie and they knew it.
I decided not to confront them about it for awhile, when I suddenly had terrible nightmares, that woke me up everynight.
It always started out with pitch-blackness.
Then a few voices came from the never-ending darkenss.
"What do you mean she doesn't know?!" One voice said.
"How could I have told her? It was for her own protection!" Another responded.
"She can't run away from what is destined to happen. Noone can. That day will eventually come, and she might not be prepared for it. It's going to happen sooner or later. For better or worse

Most of my life can best be explained with a metaphor.
I'm on a cliff, and I'm hanging on.
The whole time I'm wondering "Maybe I should let go...maybe it would be better if I did."
But no matter how much I want to, I can't.
My hands are glued to the rocks that hold me up.
I struggle to get free, I struggle to get down.
I'll beg "Please, just let me down."
But even though I can't get down, I can never get fully up.
I'll put all of my strength into my arms, and pull, but I'm never on the safety of the cliff.
I'm always half on and half off.
People try and help, but no one is strong enough to pull me down, or pick me up.
No one is strong enough to make me give up, but no one is strong enough to make me keep going.

The Swallow's Dilemma Outline
Thesis: Today, China's air is polluted and the water is filled with waste, among other things. It is apparent that with China's wealth and prosperity in the industrial world, a responsibility all of the Chinese share has become even heavier to carry. In continuously disregarding the significance of the health of their environment holds, the Chinese have become accountable for the deaths of their own people and the ever growing threat to their wild life. The small steps the government has taken will not be enough to reverse the damage done.

Before I ask what she was doing, or had time to get off, her giant ears perk up, and she jumps swiftly to the left as a giant black ball of...something hit the stone ground where we were not even a second before.
She jumps so she's facing the opposite way and growls towards a tower.
There is a man at the top and one of his hands is emitting smoke.

The man jumps down from the tower, and when he lands, he's a large black wolf with red eyes.
"Trying to kill that disgrace of a half demon!" Nabarius growls back.
I sigh, wondering what I did to make everyone in this city hate me.

History: Axel was the second born in his family. He was the son of two cloud pack members but his mother also had mated with an ocean pack male that produced his older half brother Drexel a year before. The two were the best of friends when their fathers abandoned them with their mother. Axel was slightly larger than Drexel since he was a full blooded but didn't care for he loved his brother.

DW: Thunderstorm It was a gloomy morning. The dark belly of the sky was heavy with moisture. It spewed out rain in bitter waves, soaking everything in its foul temper. Water poured off of the rooftops and crashed into deep puddles below. Thin yellow grass bent underneath the opposing storm, trembling slightly in the downpour. The sidewalk was caked in fog, unable to escape the seeping coldness of the rain. Even the trees stooped to avoid enraged cracks of lightning that streaked across the sky, and easily snapped and scorched whatever stood against it. The streetlights remained an eerie warmth in the otherwise despairing scene. A few soaked moths clung hopelessly to the lamps, and would occasionally give up and drop into the flood below.DW: Thunderstorm3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The fushiablood lead them all out to the edge of her expansive gardens, in an open area complete with targets just behind the school that was usually used for training.
You listen in silently as Terezi asks the other pair about themselves on the walk there. They're complete weirdos: a dopy-looking indigoblood with smudged facepaint and a stuttering brownblood in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.

((Skip this if you've seen/read Soul Eater. Basically what you need to know is there's a school that trains weapon and meister pairs to fight the monsters that are produced when a soul is corrupted. A weapon is a person that can shapeshift into, well, a weapon, and a meister is the person that can wield the weapon. The souls of the partners and the wavelengths they emit must be in sync with eachother or the weapon cannot be lifted. The more in sync they are, the lighter and easier it is for the meister to wield the weapon, and the more powerful the weapon is. Good partners are able to resonate their soul wavelengths with eachother and amplify their power. As it is illustrated in the show, a meister is like an electric guitar and a weapon is like an amp.))

As usual, the aromatic scent of Bacon and Eggs was wafting throughout the small apartment in which Soul and Maka dwelled. Maka was up early and making breakfast like she always did.
"All right, breakfast is done." Maka sighed in relief as she slid the contents of the frying pan onto the empty plates. Plates now filled, Maka chucked the frying pan into the washing up bowl and proceeded to Soul's room to wake him.
Maka opened the door silently, trying her best not to wake Soul just yet. She always enjoyed seeing his sleeping face since it made him look so peaceful and carefree. His sleeping face was not constantly making an effort to look cool, nor was it back mouthing her in a way that was not at all charming. No, this face portrayed a solemn face with hidden intelligence and understanding beyond thought. Of course Maka loved Soul's face no matter how it looked, but she did enjoy seeing both sides of his face. Sadly, this is not what Maka saw when she opened the door that mornin

The day of the wing ceremony. Zelda and I had just finished the final part, and I had just received the sailcloth which I assumed would only be useful for jumping off of my loftwing to get to Skyloft rather than going to the trouble of having him land.
After she had surprised me by shoving me off the statue of the goddess, she had requested we fly through the clouds together. I accepted gratefully, unaware of the dangers lurking in the seemingly peace-filled sky.
With our birds soaring through the thin clouds, Zelda eventually called to me, declaring she had something she wished to talk to me about.
Before she could finish, a tornado black as night and powerful as a god took Zelda in its grip, sending her along with her loftwing swirling to the ground below.
It was quickly explained to me my destiny, to save the world and along with Zelda.
I became meek at the revelation, and realized later that I was no hero. That I was only doing it to sav
