A Kiss of StardustOnce upon a windblown nightA Kiss of Stardust3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The stars above they shined so bright
They glistened and sparkled so far up in the sky
If only I could have one,
If only they weren't so high.
So I picked up a stool and set it on the ledge
I hope they don't catch me I should be in bed.
Well I reached up one hand and reached to the stars
My hand almost brushed one, but they were too far.
So I added a ladder and tried for one again
But this time I fell so what happens then?
Well I tumbled and tumbled and fell towards the sun
This nightly adventure wasn't ending so fun
Eventually I landed in a field of black dust.
Oh look now I'm dirty, I sat and I fussed.
I looked around at the murky night sky.
This isn't a star, oh dear, where am I?
I sat myself up and I wandered around,
Am I sitting up? Or on Earth is this upside down?
Hesitantly peering my head on the edge,
I thought to myself, is this a star? Maybe it's dead.
The sad little stars all alone in the sky,
Had not a glimmer, not a twinkle, just a cry.

‘I love you, ________... vith all my heart’ Ludwig whispered in your ear, making you shiver and want to shrink into his arms, feeling the warmth he gave you. He felt so tall and big compared to you, and somehow you felt safe in his arms, like if he’d protect you from everything and everyone. The German man held you tighter and buried his face on your soft (h/c) (h/l) hair. ‘I love you so much, _______. Ich liebe dich, ich liebe dich und ich liebe dich’
You passed your arms around his waist and with your head rested on his chest you whispered back ‘Yeah, I love you too, Luddy’
And that’s when you suddenly wake up, your whole body wrapped in the warm blankets. ‘A… dream?’ you thought, rubbing your sleepy eyes and slowly sitting up. You sneezed and tried to remember what happened yesterday. Oh, yeah, right. You confessed to Ludwig… and he… he said he lo-, he said that he loved you! ‘Oh

Melodies (GermanyXReader) RQDust particles flecked the smooth black surface, normally cleared of such specks. A long-fingered hand drew some ancient grime off the keys of ebony and ivory. An experimental increase of pressure, a tentative push executed by a pale forefinger drew forth a resonating disturbance of the quiet. Long lashes brushed against his flawless skin, eyes closed in breathless rapture. When he exhaled the drawn-in breath, he shifted forward, sliding onto the worn and buttoned leather cloaking the piano-stool.Melodies (GermanyXReader) RQ2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Hands hovered over the keys momentarily as though doubting the decades of experience and rather believing in the years of silence. The doubt was trumped a second later, his digits moving with grace unparalleled. For the strings that had been waiting for what seemed like an eternity, finally some music was being played through them, albeit a rather simple piece; not that that made it any less beautiful.

Her face was painted with the sorrows of her heart. She was pouring out every emotion she could, pounding my chest with her delicate fists. Tears were flung side-to-side, dancing with her (h/c) hair. Her once vibrant smile, now pulled to her ears, vanished. All I could make out was her yelling,"Why?" I didn't have an answer and like an idiot, I stood there and watched her struggle. Had I had known her thoughts, maybe I would have acted so differently. I then grabbed her forearms and looked at her mournful (e/c) eyes; she looked so helpless. "I'm sorry but I don't love you." Like a knife carving at a log, my words sliced her word apart. She shook away her arms and enclosed her chest in a tight hug. She looked down at the ground; her body was shaking violently. "Eduard...,"she looked up to meet my rimmed eyes,"I don't ever want to see you again. You understand!" she lashed out, running away from me, chasing her broken dreams. I stood there alone, in our fa
The Tango: ChristineRaoul stalked across the stage, eying the set pieces critically. For whatever reason, when the chorus girls began to sing, the words just didn't echo around the opera house like they used to, and since the rest of the cast and crew were off getting drunk, it was Raoul's job to fix it, and he had no idea what he was doing. Christine had insisted that the Opera Ghost was an all around genius when it came to music and that he would gladly come out of his cave to help if only the two men would suck it up and get over their differences. Raoul called her crazy and threatened her not to bother the Phantom, but it was then that she remembered all of the things she had waiting on her to do list and left him. Raoul had the terrible feeling that he knew exactly where she had gone.The Tango: Christine5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She wrung the coffee out of the front of her shirt, made damn sure that all of her doors and windows were locked, and called Mike.

"Zombie, Mike. It's a dead body in a puddle of nasty, and it's leaving more nasty on my door. God, I can even smell it. This is one thorough job, man."
She edged away from the door, keeping an eye on the intruder beyond the glass. It was bloated and purple with decay, green and black fungus speckling its face. There was fluid coming out of its mouth and dripping from its nose. It had no eyes, and all indication of sex or age had rotted away.

The dashing brunette that barged into the room was clad only in a pair of form fitting jeans which he attempted to zip up as he ran, nearly tripping over himself in doing so. His oak brown hair -wild and untamed-, complemented the near desperation in his stance, sepia eyes darting back and forth across the room as if in search of something...43.

As you all know, Lissachoa is Subject 222.
But what are these subjects about?
What kind of experiments did she go through?
What is the purpose of it all?
Well, sit back and I'll tell you everything.
It starts with the beginning.
Our world is full of myths, stories and folk lore.
The macabre, occult, and horror of monsters and the damned
that lurk in the darkness and dwells in the night
but what if these tales were not of
What if they were warnings of things to come?
Indeed we were caught off guard.
Some thought it was the Apocalypse, the Final Judgment, the end of the world
But heavens gates kept closed and earth remained.

TruBlood: Chap 1 FanfictionWhen he entered the bar, I was bending over setting a pitcher of beer on the wood table number five for the third time that night. I smiled at the patrons I was serving automatically and absentmindedly as I always do, while I looked into his fiery, purposeful light brown eyes. Immediately, I knew he was a vampire. For one, he wasn't broadcasting anything and the lighting in this place made his already pale complexion as white as white could be. He nonchalantly made his way to the dark red padded booth seat that sat against the wall in the middle of the bar. His unusually direct posture made me look harder at his stride. I hadn't ever really seen anyone keep the top half of their body still and composed while the bottom half moved easily.TruBlood: Chap 1 Fanfiction4 years ago in Romance More Like This

"Miss Stackhouse, it would be good for you to wake up. I wouldn't want you drowning under my watch."
The voice talking now got your attention and hastily you sat up and looked shocked at the one talking. It was the boy that carried you out of the church and let you sleep in one of his rooms.

Buffy looked down to where a Turok-Han had thrust it's sword in to her back, piercing her abdomen, before she could really register the wound she fell to the ground, face-first.
As Faith fought for her life along with the other girls she noticed another casualty of their war, a small blonde casualty wearing identical clothes to what Buffy had been wearing. "Buffy!" Her voice was full of alarm as she rushed to her fallen sister's side, fearing the worst.
Buffy had not been killed though and leaning on her elbows she handed the scythe to Faith with what little strength she had. "Hold the line." As her hands touched the scythe Faith could feel it's power surging through her veins and along with it came the responsibility of carrying on the good fight and part of Faith knew that soon enough she would be avenging her sister's slayer's death.

She sat up quickly causing her head to spin and her cats to go tumbling off their perches next to her. With meows of dissatisfaction one left the other room in disgust the other propped herself down at the end of the bed and went back to sleep. Rebecca rubbed her temples and stretched her legs. She mumbled a few choice cuss words under her breath at Mason and the hour that flashed in red next to her on the nightstand. It was almost noon and she had so much to do today. She had set the alarm clock for eight and it was very clear that an overprotective vampire had come along to turn it off. The fact that she hadn't even stirred when he had been inside the trailer was probably all the ammunition he needed to justify his actions.

Corazón que se desgarra;

Taemin declared laying both hands palms down on the table.
"It isn't there."
Minho agreed without even looking up at him. There was a silence of about three seconds.
"It isn't there."
"It isn't there."
Minho nodded and turned a page over.
"What isn't there?"
Taemin almost fell over with his chair. His heart nearly jumped up to his throat and his left hand found its way over his chest, as if it could keep the heart in its proper place like that. He gave the newcomer a wide-eyed look, like a deer caught in the headlights.

Jonghyun raised his eyebrows at him, but continued to walk further into the kitchen nonetheless. Minho was very much engrossed in the newspaper and didn't show any signs of even noticing the other's entrance. That was of course before he answered his question.

Sleeping With Ghosts: Chap. 9The flight from the warehouse in downtown Monterey to the Carmel Valley only took a few minutes, but for both human and dragon, it seemed like hours. Hiccup felt utterly helpless being so high in the sky without anything preventing him from falling, and he couldn't get down fast enough. Dreki was in so much pain that he began to feel faint. He knew he wouldn't die from his injuries; as a Dark-Hunter he could only die if his head was severed from his body, if he was caught too long in the sunlight or if someone stabbed him in the place Artemis had marked him. Dark-Hunters had to recover from their injuries by sleeping, however, and having to fight off that sleep only increased the pain Dreki was experiencing. It was only when the dragon clearly saw the roof of his home that he allowed himself to feel relieved.Sleeping With Ghosts: Chap. 95 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

You looked down to the tall blonde german who was hunched on the couch infront of the rather large window in the living room, his now distant blue eyes fixated on the white coffe mug in his hands. Ludwig looked up to you, a sad expression planted on his face that couldn't quite be described with words alone. He gave you a slight nod, not seeming to reply for the longest while.
