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

Sollux, his two weapons, and the other pair had been chatting on the other side of the room, but agreed to go outside to practice as well. 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.
"Oh uh, nice to meet you Terezi. I'm Tavros. This is my meister, Gamzee." The indigoblood gives a wave and a grin. "He's been my friend for uh… quite a long time. I'm very grateful to him, since he's probably the only reason I haven't been culled yet considering my uh, disability. Luckily it doesn't affect my weapon form though!

((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.))

"I'm an idiot." Maka sighed, curling up tighter and tighter into a ball with every passing minute.
"Oh, Maka," Tsubaki chuckled lightly, trying to lighten the atmosphere, "You're not an idiot! You're just just, uh "
"Yes I am." Maka insisted, looking up at Tsubaki from her curled ball position of safety, "Idiot: Noun. Informal. An utterly foolish or senseless person." She huddled back up after stating the evidence of her "utter foolishness" and "senselessness".
Tsubaki exhaled as she gathered the plates from the table, "Well, somebody swallowed a dictionary." Tsubaki went to join Maka in the corner of the room after gathering the plates, straightening out the creases in her skirt as she stooped down to sit beside the depressed teenager on the floor, "Listen, we all make mistakes; it's just a part of human behaviour.

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
Sleep - KarkatxTereziKarkat woke up to something nudging his chest. He opened his eyes halfway and looked down to discover what disturbed his sleep; he saw Terezi's sleeping form. She was lying on her stomach, her body slowly rising and falling as if it were keeping the beat to an imaginary song. The girl's lips were parted, the tiniest bit of drool on one corner of her mouth making part of Karkat's shirt slightly wet. Still asleep, Terezi murmured something to herself. Karkat strained to hear what she said, but he failed to understand her unconscious mumblings.Sleep - KarkatxTerezi4 years ago in Romance More Like This

When she settled herself in and made herself comfortable again, Terezi's smile returned, her hands resting on her stomach. Karkat sighed

That sound kept ringing in Karkat’s head. Never has the trolls' leader been so afraid. He always thought a leader wasn't supposed to be afraid. One of many signs that he's failed in his duty.
Things were going so peacefully. Well, as peacefully as things would get around there. Until, out of nowhere, Eridan turned to the Dark Side. Using his "magic wizard's wand", he killed all of his teammates, though only knocked out Sollux, leaving only him behind for some reason.
And to make matters worse, Gamzee seems to have lost his mind, too. He's working with Eridan as they prepare to join forces with Jack Noir. Karkat was at a loss of what to do. Eridan and Gamzee have turned evil. Sollux was out cold, his other friends were dead, and he had no idea where Vriska and Tavros were. Probably dead, too, for all he knew.
He's failed as a leader.

Soul peered through the crack in Maka's bedroom door. There was no sign of movement and the only sound emitting from Maka was her breathing. Soul grinned widely.
"Alright. Now I can start my plan."
Soul tiptoed towards the kitchen slowly. Every time a floorboard creaked under his feet he would stiffen up and hold his agitated breath. He would listen intently for any signs of conscious life; his eyes swivelling insanely around the room. Only when he heard Maka mumbling something about Pocky in her dreams would he finally allow himself to exhale and loosen his rigid muscles. Then he would begin prowling towards the kitchen once more. As he approached his destination, Soul hoped there would be a sufficient amount of ingredients. If not, he'd have to make a long, cold journey to the 24-hour convenience store, and that was definitely something he'd prefer to avoid.
Soul gritted his shark-like teeth as he cautiously opened the tiny fridge.

Sadly, all he could find was Peach Juice.

He carelessly flung it back within the cold abyss of the fridge in annoyance.

Soul never remembered much of what Maka said. She spoke in such an intelligent manner. Too intelligent for Soul. He only ever really remembers her admitting her love for him. Soul smiled a toothy smile at the sweet memories.

All alone in the city at night,
You hate the sound of a gunshot right?
Breaking with this voice of mine,
Wasted so much of my time.
Just as you've fallen into to my hands,
I can't let you go; that I understand.
The one-man live act was a hit,
In my head it's like a girly comic.
Even though we're out of bullets,
There's still time to table-flip.
Everything's going our way
And we pick them of as I say;
'To these old lives I bid bye-bye!'
I'll be looking to the future, right?
Spinning myself just looking for mistakes,
Teaching myself even as it breaks.
I'm not lonely, oh no! (Oh no)
That so? (That so) That so? (That so) That's so.
So is it, so is it, so is it lucky?
Still spinning round on the 39th loop.
So is it, so is it, well is it happy?
I don't understand what should be understood!
The sounds that still echo around in my head,
I can't even tell where they begin or end.
