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

I have had them a lot lately, the Kishin still lurking in my head.
A blood red film covered my eye sight, terrified screams piercing my hearing, along with a insane laugh and cruel shrieks.
The Kishin pushed me over, and I flung into the back of a rock.
I stood onto something soft and wet. I looked under me.
"NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!" I screamed seeing a stack of bodies underneath me.
Crona, Miss. Marie, Stein, Tsubaki, Black star, Kid, Patty, Liz, Papa
"S Soul?" I whimpered kneeling down.
"SOUL WAKE UP!" I screamed shaking his lifeless body.
"SOUL, NO SOUL!"
"Maka, wake up, Wake up Maka!" Soul yelled.
My eyes flew open, my mouth half open about to scream again.
"Shh Maka, shh Its okay, I'm here I'm here" He whispered resting his hand on my forehead. I bolted upright, a line of sweat along my hairline.

They all seem so gray and dingy and dirty and way too similar to another. They all look the same, and it fucking sucks.
You shuffle through the tightly-packed crowd, stopping a few feet away from the platform, and soon the train whooshes right by again, gone as fast as it appeared.
You attempt to look over the crowd, but to no avail because all these damn people are too tall.
But in the midst of the commotion, you still spot a bright splotch of blue, completely conspicuous in the crowd of the otherwise gray blobs.

"It's so hot. I'm sweating like a pig." Complained Soul as he made a measly attempt to fan himself.
He heaved a weary sigh to himself before wondering to the kitchen in search of a soothing beverage.
"Being hot and bothered is so uncool." He mumbled while scouring the fridge.
Sadly, all he could find was Peach Juice.
"This stuff is disgusting!" He groaned, "How could Maka possibly like this?"
He carelessly flung it back within the cold abyss of the fridge in annoyance.
"Well, Maka is always telling me that hot drinks cool you down better than cold drinks." He said, shrugging as he spoke, "She said it was something to do with being hyper Hmm I forgot."
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.
He shuffled lazily over to the kettle and clicked the button that boils the water.

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.

He growled from his room and I heard a thump, probably falling out of his bed again.
"BLACK STAR'S HERE TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR DAY!!!!! HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!!!!" I heard that loud, annoying voice from outside.
"Be quiet Black*star, people are still sleeping probably!" Tsubaki gasped from outside desperately

Soul must of heard Black stars voice because he was already coming for the kitchen.

"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."

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.

((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

Okay, so first of all, a zombie is a reanimated corpse that lurches around looking for human flesh. Different breeds may be reasoned with, or even "cured" back to the original personality. However, the most typical zombies:
-Are incoherent. They will not be reasoned with or threatened.
-They don't sleep.
-They seem to like brains, but most will settle for a nice hunk of your flesh.
-The come in different speeds, from crawling to shambling to running. Most are shambling along at a slow slow walk.
-They do not drown or asphyxiate.
-Some will burn easily while others will not burn at all.
-Most zombies will "die" from severe damage to the head.
-It is said they are attracted by sound, but this varies.
-VERY IMPORTANT: The most dangerous thing about zombies is that if they bite you and you die before your brain is destroyed, you will come back to life as ANOTHER ZOMBIE. That's how they spread their numbers
