It was about 7:35 pm when April heard a tapping noise by the fire escape.
She sat bolt upright at her desk, hands still poised over the keyboard of her laptop, holding her breath. Had she imagined it? No, there it was again. Someone was definitely tapping on the window by the fire escape.
Her mind and her heart began racing simultaneously. There were only three possible explanations she could think of for this situation. One was that a burglar was trying to break into the apartment. The second was that the alien robots she had escaped from a week ago had come for her. The third was that the foursome of giant talking turtles that had saved her from the alien robots had decided to pay her a visit. The only way she could find out which one of those three possible options was out there right now was to go to the window and see.
Very slowly, she leaned over in her chair, reached under the desk and picked up the only weapon she had; an aluminum baseball bat. She could fend off a burglar easi
Mech CornerOblivion glanced up from the glowing screen as he heard foot steps. One of the newer recruits was approaching, a slight hesitancy in her step as a look of confusion crossed her face. Oblivion nodded slightly in recognition of the recruit, Ebony Sonata, then turned back to the monitor.Mech Corner6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Shockwave, Sir? Ebony asked as she stopped a few feet away from the mech. Shockwave, who was standing behind Oblivion as he monitored the smaller mechs progress, turned to see who was speaking.
Ah, Ebony. What do you need? he asked.
The femme saluted her commanding officer. I just came to report that I have finished my duties for today.
Very good, carry on, Shockwave replied. He glanced down at Oblivion and pointed out a mistake he had made. The mech grunted in response as he corrected it, then glanced behind him. Shockwave followed his gaze to find that Ebony was still standing behind them.
Yes? Shockwave asked, slightly annoyed that she h

I clenched my teeth in frustration and withdrew my attention from the composition in front of me with great difficulty.
I am busy, I said coldly. The boy in the doorway shuffled his feet nervously and fingered the large scarf that draped over his neck.
I do not believe that you do, for if you did, you would not pester me so. The pen resumed scribbling notes onto the staff, a lovely melody unfurling in my head and spilling out onto the parchment. It was a gift for her, inspired by her, and named for her. A Christmas gift, I suppose one would say. I wanted her music to speak of her soul. And it undoubtedly would.
If I had been permitted solitary time to complete it, that is.

Death WishOblivion glared at the consul screen in front of him, as if the burning hatred emanating from his single optic could make it disappear, or change, or something else. He had done his other assignments without complaint. Meeting his superior officer and managing to not do any harm to anyone involved? Difficult, but done. The raid on Earth? Enjoyable, if a bit annoying to clean the red fluid off his equipment. The DJ? He had lost count of the energon carts he had pulled in and out of there at three thousand four hundred something-or-other. He had even let himself eventually be dragged in for the systems check everyone had been required to have after the virus started to spread around the base. Yes, he had done every single one of the assignments he had been given, and even managed not to kill anyone he was not supposed to kill on-duty.Death Wish6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Half-Pint looked up from the floor she had been scrubbing to see Shockwaves tall frame looming over her. He sounded annoyed, and the dent in his optic ridge gave more proof to the fact that the Guard leader was ticked. I aint seen the slagger, Half-Pint said gruffly, returning her glare to the un-identified stain on the floor that refused to be cleaned. I aint his keeper. Why you askin me?
He has not shown up for his past five shifts, and Ive looked in his usual hangouts, Shockwave said. He hasnt yet reported to the med-bay to be inspected for the virus, as well, which is probably the reason he hasn't shown up for his shifts. He is getting heavily on my nerves and needs to be Corrected. I just assumed that you might know where he is, since the two of you act like siblings.

The Valentine's MartyrOblivion was having a bad day. Not that any of his days were specifically good in the first place, but today stood out among the other moments of his rank life as being particularly foul. It had started off with the mech being dragged out of recharge by the annoying shrieks of Shadow Kai as she ran down the long corridor that linked the Guard dorms, singing her rendition of a cheerful wake-up call. Not that that was unusual; she did that every morning. But Oblivion had tripped over something as he tried to crawl out of his berth. It was some sort of machine, with a note attached. Apparently, Kai had snuck it into Oblivions room while the mech was recharging.The Valentine's Martyr6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Pairing: Hiruma x Mamori
Warning: STRONG LANGUAGE. Nothing vulgar, just your every day cuss words.
Summary: Mamori longs for someone to spend Christmas Eve with.
Christmas Eve: a time for twinkling fairy lights, fine wines and heart-warming music. A time for stealing kisses, holding hands, and falling easily into the arms of your significant other. Simply put, it’s the time for sweet, blissful romance.
Too bad she didn’t have someone of her own to steal moments with, to hold or fall into.
Well, she did have someone, but he didn’t view her as anything more than a business partner. Someone to write down information, record game plays and maintain equipment. To cook for teams, clean their clothes and stitch up their wounds.
She was a manager, a maid, and a medic. She was a girl he could use, and boy has he used her.
Just not in the way that she wanted him to.

"Sir? Do you find me expendable?"
The man stopped his actions and turned his head to the questioning voice behind him. He had never had to deal with such an absurd and personal question, especially not at this time of day- it was late at night and he was preparing his work for tomorrow and getting ready to close up. Nevertheless, the voice beckoned him to answer, and those tired, stressed blue eyes stared at him, anticipating a reply.
"Ah well " he began, setting down a bag of freshly scooped coffee beans he was just getting done with wrapping. "Why do you ask?" he retorted- trying to learn more about this mysterious being facing him before composing an answer.
"I ask because I require an answer, sir." They replied their voice hollow and their eyes drifting to look to the tan coloured elixir that would be coffee but was too over run with creamer in their cup.

Donnie sat at his work bench, rubbing his temples as he groaned. He hasn't slept all night, due to the fact that his brothers didn't believe him about the whole glowing thing.
Donnie didn't even know why he was in his lab again; he thought it would calm his thoughts to be at his table. But, he didn't have anything to work on, so why was he here?
He had been there for about a good two hours already, and his brothers decided to leave him be. Perhaps that was best. After all, the purple banded turtle wasn't really in the mood for talking.
Donnie let out a yawn as he tinkered away on a random object he found in his lab. He had damaged it purposely, just so he could have something to keep his mind busy. He was in the middle of his work when he heard a soft tapping on his doorframe.

They ran into the Tardis at full tilt, River hobbling, screeching howls sounded behind them, a laser bolt flashed over their heads and impacted the far wall.
They whirled and slammed the doors shut, panting. The chaos was safely locked outside.
River reached down and pulled off her broken high heel.
The Doctor looked down in disapproval. "River, why do you always have to wear high heels? You know we're going to end up running. You could have broken your leg!" He waved his arms, his ire not quite covering his concern.
She tossed aside the offending shoes, she smiled at him, tilting her head coyly. "They make my legs look good," she said. She slipped a hand down his irate face. "And I'll happily risk it to see that appreciative gleam in your eye," she said softly.

Transformers Essay - Section 3Section 3.1 - ReproductionTransformers Essay - Section 38 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
This is perhaps the touchiest subject in TransFandom. How can a pair of giant autonomous robots reproduce, after all? The answer to this is painfully simple.
The spark bond as it was explained in section 2.1 has more uses beyond the practical joining of a pair who wish to be sparkbound. The longer two sparks remain merged together during the bond, the more energy is created between the two. Should the bonded pair or group leave their sparks bonded for too long, there is a high chance of a "bud" being created.
The bud is a small polyp of energy off the parent spark and it tends to form on the spark of the member of the bonded pair or group with a higher power level. In the case of a mech being the carrier, they will often go into an extented recharge stasis period while the body directs most of its available energy sources not dedicated to maintaining proper fluid circulation and overall heal
Maria's prayerLittle baby Shadow, you slept soundly in your cribMaria's prayer9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Slumbering so peacefully
With food still on your bib.
I watched your chest rise and fall,
As I stroked your tiny head
and then I left you lying there
on your little bed.
The days then passed too quickly
And my teaching was all for naught
Because as I stand here watching,
I see the evil you brought.
You're not the Shadow I once knew
You're tinged with so much hatred
I wish I could fill you once again
With goodness unabated.
But as I lie in death's cold embrace
And guard you every night
Listening to your troubled dreams
As you squirm and cry in fright
I know you don't want to be this way
As you constantly struggle to remember
How your life used to be
Before your soul's December.
And once again I know there's hope
Even though I am dead
Because your heart still knows me
And how for you I bled
So Shadow, listen closely
To what I have to say:
Though your journey seems impossible,
There will always be a way.

Natsu dragged Lucy to the pub and everyone welcomed her happily. There were people dancing and singing, drinking their hearts out. They all said very reassuring things to Lucy, which made her feel more comfortable. Some musicians were going all out on their instruments while the guild was dancing to the rhythm.
