The Little Things
Author's Note: Yes, I'm back with yet ANOTHER Tsustar fic! So I kinda really love that One Direction Song "All the Little Things". It's super cute and inspired me! Black Star is a loud mouth and self absorbed, but even egotistical ninja's are observant and grow up at some point. *ONESHOT*
Disclaimer: Don't own Soul Eater… or the song… but this fic is mine.
Black Star wasn't very well understood. Maybe it was because he wasn't necessarily the most charismatic or whatever you'd like to call it. He wasn't sophisticated like Kid or smooth like Soul. He didn't engage in intellectual conversation like Ox, have some brooding, mysterious thing about him like Harvar, OR do whatever it was that Kilik seemed to do that had the girls calling lately. He was who he was. He liked high places, announcing his greatness, and being in the spot light. He liked eating massive portions of food, pla
The Witch of the West is Dead - ReduxI dropped her hands, watching her face twist in a way that was sad, but somehow holding back. I knew she could read my actions like no one else. I knew she was all too aware of my intentions. The thought of that sickened me. I was horrible for doing this, for making her think I along with everyone else she ever cared for was dead. What kind of friend was I? But I couldn’t back out now, no, I’d gone too far to turn around. My fate was sealed. In a minute I’d be ‘dead.’The Witch of the West is Dead - Redux2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
“Hide yourself, please,” I begged. I hoped, even maybe prayed that she wouldn’t see, hoped that somehow she’d be spared from the gruesome cheers that follow any unloved person’s murder. I had to turn away to keep myself from crying in front of her. It’d give everything away.

How long had they been here? Hours? Days? Weeks? It was impossible to tell. Percy knew time worked differently in monstrous places, and Tartarus was about as monstrous as a place could get; there was no telling what day it was, or how much time they had left.
Time left to do what? Get out before they died? Close the Doors before… what? He had so many questions. But the one that weighed most heavily on his mind was, how would they get out after closing the Doors?
He’d given it a lot of thought. As far as he could figure, these Doors had to be closed on both sides, which meant someone had to stay in Tartarus. Percy would stay; there was no other option. He had to get Annabeth out.
The problem was getting her to the doors first. It was torturous here. The monsters were only half-formed, so they weren’t so much the issue. What was so terrifying was the essence of Tart

Dudley placed the cup of tea in front of Harry’s door as quietly and subtly as his girth allowed him. He was running out of ways to get through to his cousin, and out of time as well: Harry only emerged from his room for the occasional meal and the daily argument with Dudley’s dad, leaving little opportunity for Dudley to approach him, and they would be leaving today. Dudley had sworn to himself that he would resolve their past to the best of his abilities before they went into hiding, if only to make things less awkward between them for the duration of their stay at whatever hidey-hole they ended up in.
If nothing else, the tea would certainly boost Harry’s morale. There was nothing more heart-warming than a good cup of tea.
It was cold, so cold. And dark. Why was it so dark?
Dudley felt like he couldn’t breathe. Felt like cold fingers were crawling up his neck

"Oh great brothers of Peverell, what have you of me?"

"I wish of you power, over those without life"
and Death offered a stone; their hands met, once, so brief
and Death whispered sadly, "Be done of your grief"

and in short time, Death twas greatly desired)

I need not ask where
All I have to know is that you're there
so that our hands clasp in warmth
and our eyes whisper in silence
Neither do I need ask when
All I have to know is forever
so that we'd gaze upon our dreams
and we'd ride through eternity
as we soar with our hearts
and our hearts soar with us.
There would be no fatigue...
There would be no aging...
There would only be life...
There would only be love...
We'd only come down to smile
and look at each other
as we whisper the story
in the mirror of our eyes
as I see you in mine
and you see me in yours.

Insane~Wally + Artemis~Insane4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It is in this one, odd, singular moment that everything changes. It is in this one second, this one feeling, that she loses her guard and pulls back her haughtiness. It is now that she breaks down, and finally gives in. She's tired of fighting. And, more importantly, she's tired of losing every battle she fights.
The way he handles her is so natural it's almost surreal. She never could have thought he would be this gentle. He's stupid, sure, and reckless and cocky. But not oblivious. Not incapable of emotion, either. In some strange, hidden part of him, concealed by those bitter retorts, he cares about her. And he knows that she's not who she appears to be.
They are alone. Something she normally wouldn't allow, not at any cost. But this is different. She is feeling the lies begin to unravel, and she knows she will have to tell the truth soon. She knows that this little game she's been playing, pretending to be "Little Miss Hero", is soon to end. And so she's going to

Artemis cursed between coughs and sneezes.
Why did she have to take Green Arrow's shift last night?
Oh that's right, she had to keep up appearances as his protégé and niece, and he had a party to attend. She rolled her eyes. Of course, to make things worse, it was mind-numbing cold last night, nearing freezing temperatures, and obviously Artemis' costume had no sleeves.
You can guess the result was not so good. She was now stuck with a cold for the next seven days, at the very least, and it didn't look like it was going to be a light one. To add to everything, instead of being able to curl up in the couch at home and watch some TV, snuggled under all the blankets she could find, Batman had called them in for a new mission, "and it is imperative the whole team attends."
Was it really that important that everyone went? Why couldn't she just skip out on this one, and let the other five handle it? It'd also make life a lot easier if she di

This is where they always end up. No matter how hard they try to rid themselves of each other, they always seem to end up right back where they started. In this bed, her head resting against his chest, his hand absently stroking her hair. Their eyes open.
He's tried leaving her. Tried multiple times over the years, but only succeeded once. That one time was two weeks ago, when things just spiraled out of control and each jab went a step farther than the last.
He exhales and touches his nose to her head, in an unusually deep amount of thought. He doesn't know why he keeps coming back here, why he keeps putting himself though this. He doesn't even know if it's worth it. He sometimes thinks it is, and other times it feels like he's grabbing for something that's already gone. Or maybe it was never even there.
This last thought sticks out abruptly and he blinks, refocusing, and almost shakes his head at himself. No, the feeling for her was always there. Or else he never wo

~Day Four: Fate~
Kent Nelson was getting quite fed up.
It wasn't that life inside of the golden Dr. Fate helmet was all that bad. It was nice, actually. Quiet, calm, and of course Nabu was there to keep him company. He learned much inside the helmet, exploring new magic, watching new things. And, of course, there was always his beloved Inza to think about, when the days would get long. He would come to her someday.
No, nothing about being inside Dr. Fate bothered Kent. It was what was outside of Dr. Fate.
The helmet made its residence on top of a collection of dark brown shelves, resting delicately next to a grinning cat mask, a slender arrow, a red cowl, and a single robotic eyeball. These partners were also not what bothered Kent. On days when life inside the helmet got boring, he would actually look out at them and imagine exactly who (or what) they must have belonged to.
But, of course, these souvenirs were not the only thing in the room. Or in the building

Wally West was a super hero. He could run faster than sound and was remarkably intelligent. He could also heal himself incredibly fast, too. He was no ones idea of a weak man. But by definition he was weak.
He was weak hearted, weak in the knees and had trouble breathing when it came to one very important thing. Her. Artemis Crock. She was strong, beautiful and had flawless aim. She was smart, just enough to challenge his every move. Any man would fall for her, but Wally wasn't just any man. He was Kid Flash for Pete's sake! A true lady's man and went from girl to girl, but when she came along something changed.
At first he didn't like her at all. She was rude, arrogant and made fun of him, but even through all that he found himself infatuated with her. It was hard for super heroes to have relations

"Hey, Baywatch. What's with the roses?" asked Artemis as wiped some post-training sweat from her forehead. Wally looked at her with his trademark goofy grin and indiscreetly hid the cheap bouquet behind his back.
"What roses? I don't see any. Maybe you're seeing things, Arty." To this the archer rolled her eyes feigned indifference.
"Whatever. Their for Megan, right? Another hopeless attempt at getting her to date you?"
"Wrong. Their actually for a secret plan I'll be putting into action tonight."
"Oh really, and what 'secret plan' is that?"
"It's a secret, duh!" he said and turned to leave with the flowers still in hand. Just before he left though, Artemis thought she heard a softer voice, too timid to be his she was sure, call out, "If you really want to know, meet me at the big park on Somerset Drive in two hours." and then he sped away.
She didn't care what he thought of her. Really. She wasn't at the park exactly two hours later for him

She hadn't expected that. "Whatwhat's your name?" he asked. He looked like he hated to even say it, but there was no mistaking the expression in his eyes. It matched the one Robin felt was in her own: hunted. (Also hungry. Robin was not used to missing breakfast, and her stomach was complaining unhappily. But mostly hunted.)
Feeling more kindly towards him, she said, "Robin."
He gave her the barest of nods, and his gaze lingered on her for just a moment. "Okay," he said. Then he turned and began to walk away.
There was a beat before Robin fully registered this. "Hang on just a minute there," she burst out, grabbing his arm. "That's it? You're just going to leave?"

He grinned at her with his usual childlike smile. Then an ominous shadow seemed to stir behind his eyes.
" I'm just glad you're okay " he muttered, his expression becoming serious as he looked up at her through his eyelashes. Artemis's pre-made retort caught in her throat as she absorbed the look on his face.

It was a Friday in station square high school. That is, the best Friday, since the summer holidays were on their way in just a few minutes! All was pretty quiet last lesson time, and the teacher was chatting about some random quote from his back-in-my-day memory bank.
Knuckles the Echidna sat in the front of the class, right in the middle. He never complained because there was no-one to distract him, and he liked his personal space, however, being alone in the lesson completely bored him, and instead he started scribbling in the back of his book. Happy in his own little world, Knuckles unfortunately didnt notice the growing shadow on his desk as the teacher loomed over him.
