Summary: The zombie apocalypse has hit Manchester.
Disclaimer: I don't own the boys and this hopefully won't happen.
Author's Note: This was written for Halloween.
"They say the epidemic's spread into the borders," he said to me, a worried look on his face. I nodded; it was nothing new. It's been on the news for days now, and I've been trying to delay the worry. I knew that we'd be dead sooner or later, but I hadn't thought it'd come so soon.
The story behind it was this: a zombie apocalypse had literally happened. It started in Spain, and within days it was raging along the whole of Southern Europe. There was no way to escape. It was just dreadful waiting, waiting and waiting.
But now, the news said there was only an estimated day before they entered the town; 'they' meaning the virus-victims, or, more straightforwardly, the zombies.
So I'd decided to spend the last day, literally the la

The young girl pushes past branches and yellowing leaves, ignoring her grandmother's overprotective calls. She ducks beneath a low limb, and walks into a small clearing near the bank of a shallow muddy stream. A small boy is waiting for her, sitting on the ground with his feet in the creek. She quietly joins him on the sandy mud, pockmarked with footprints of unseen animals. A crow mournfully caws above her. The girl looks up, startled. She spots the dark spot against the sun, high in the branches, and lets out a small sigh of relief to see such a familiar sight. The cold water shocks her toes at first, as she gingerly lowers them in. Tiny minnows swim amongst old brown and orange leaves as they swirl around her pale bare feet. Giggles fill the air as small silver fish gently brush against her. The child looks at the boy next to her, and tilts her head wordlessly. He stares back, and begins to get up. Small but sure hands, still pudgy from being in the years of childhoo

Step down and listen to mother because she might know best.
Disobedient, he goes ahead and pulls the trigger anyway.
And now poor old mother is alone and mourns every day.
Now the blood trickles on to the carpet;
Stains it with the colour of pretty roses
But now roses aren't red for me.
I'm not the one with the kitchen knife slicing at my wrist.
This cut just adds yet another self-injury to the list.
Enervated, she scratches away and tries to finish off the job.
So now the last sound the bathtub will hear is her sob.
Now the blood spills in to the water;
Dyes it with the colour of lovely roses
But now roses aren't red for me.

Their corpses, rearrange
the roses on their coffins -
so dark, so dark.
Now the blood pours in to the memories;
Tints it with the colour of death.
So give the dead their roses,
But those roses aren't red for me.

I am sad like an orphan, I am sad
like expired milk.
the greatest of distances, dotted lines
of latitude, the lengths Ive promised
Id go, cannot always
somewhere in between the waiting,
spanning time like noise in the branches,
the thickets dead stare, I sink down and into
a reality of curdled disease.
Ive shared space and air and sighs
with those too close for comfort; a
warm chair, dry-heave tag-teams
racing for the sink, an erect palm
waving a pride that should be mine.
Ive had all the time in the world
to waste on mistakes. with make-shift
memories, Ive built my own bridges
from bed to bed to bed, rising above
my sour shadow, their
telltale invitations to gape
I am empty like the sky, I am sad
like sutured skin.
Ive tried to build a bridge of love
alone, but its overgrown
and not strong enough to close
this widening hole.

What makes us love such a man as he?
Why do our hearts flutter at his smile?
How our knees waver at his voice!
See what his hazel stare can do!
Maybe it is because there is none other like him
For he is the perfect man, a shining star
Such a jewel, rare treasure indeed
He can easily steal our hearts and mystify our minds
How we swoon at him in billowing capes
Deafening gasps at dramatic performances
So noble when clutching a sword
And heroic appearing through a storm
O, nothing can break our undying devotion!
Dedicating ourselves is our number one notion!

If my heart began to slow?
Would you carry me home
If my dreams ceased to glow?
I am a lonely wanderer
So cold in the night
I cannot see my path
I have lost my light
You were so close
Dead within my sights
But I misspoke the words
Forgot what was right
Would you whisper to me
Help me drift into sleep?
Would you kiss me softly
And help me quietly weep?
I am a broken warrior
So damned and despised
I cannot see the point
When I am already defied
You were so bold
With a thousand replies
But I mistreat my wounds
Welcome to my demise

Dinner with Alan RickmanIt was a typical good night for eating out with my friends or someone I really loved. Well, the truth was, I did come to this fancy restaurant to have dinner with someone whom I thought was a decent person but as I sat at the lavished table with a bottle of wine at the ready and my dinner, listening to the music that pulsed in the place and looking up at the crystal chandelier that glowed above my head, I knew that he wasnt coming to have dinner with me. No, he wasnt coming at all.Dinner with Alan Rickman8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
I had been stood up.
That cold hearted bastard stood me up!
So there I was dressed in a nice red strapless number, my hair all done up, and with no one to keep me company. Everyone else around me had dates and I was the only person without one. That was just brilliant! I made a quick reminder to tear that boyfriend of mine a new one if I ever saw him again.
Then I heard this deep, velvety, voice that immediately made me go weak in the kn
Irrational Fear?Rational thoughts are rather irrational, for those who believe irrationality to be rational. Confused? That doesn't surprise me. After all, thoughts are complex, much like dreams. It's not known where they come from or what they truly mean, yet still people are haunted by them.Irrational Fear?5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Jolting awake after a grim nightmare, or awaking slowly after a euphoric dream; the thing those have in common are that, despite that people see the occurrence through their very eyes, they are left clueless. They are unaware of what they mean and that scares them. People fear the unexplained and that is their downfall. Would people embrace the unknown, then they would be much more powerful.
To fear power is to embrace weakness and once that is done, death is soon to follow. Life will never be as wonderful as people want it to be, should they cling to their weakness. People can change their fate by straying from society's laid out path, but they are too weak and fearful to do so. They resent and fear what they d

Breathing in your every word.
I couldnt fault you
Even if I tried.
Sometimes I hate you like a cynic.
Despairing in the silences.
I convince myself
I dont need you.
Sometimes I like you as a friend.
Jokes and taunts are all in good fun.
I dance with you
And have the time of my life.
Sometimes I want you like a whore.
Ripping at clothes,
Letting that heady feeling win me over.
Your kisses and touches
Take me away.
Sometimes I need you like a newborn.
Paralysed in the dark.
Im alone and unworthy
But I know you'll have me as I am.
A child, a cynic, a friend
When Im as fragile as an infant
Or when my desire turns to flames.
I know youll love me just for me
And thats the only thing I need,
For instead of falling backwards,
I fall safe into your arms.

"Why do you love the moon, Draco?" Whispers echo, and she's afraid to have broken a rule left unsaid. There is no reply. She knows there never will be. But pauses pass, and he's rising to turn. A painful, open expression sears his eyes, in a way she's never seen. Then it's gone and his face is coarse, hard, like it was before she healed him. The words that follow aren't his.
"I don't love the moon, I hate it." Lies.

" heehee. Bumblebee, look."
"Sweet, blackmail," he said.
Sari huffed. "I think it's cute."
Groggily, I realized I must have fallen asleep during the movie. And was it just me or was I leaning against something metal? I opened my eyes and saw that I had fallen over onto Prowl, who was also just waking up. I had apparently cuddled up to him in my sleep, so with a massive blush appearing on my face, I leapt off the couch and away from him. Then I turned to see Bumblebee holding a camera, and Sari on his shoulder, smirking.
Prowl's optics lit back up with a flicker and he looked at the situation, slightly confused. I, on the other hand, wanted to smack a yellow bot and an impish little girl.
"You didn't ?" I hissed, and much to my dismay, the two nodded.
"It's just a picture," Sari said, being set on the ground. "We were thinking about making a scrap-book."
My eyes narrowed. "I distinctly heard the word 'blackmail'."

With a big smile on her face, she leapt off her bike and got her camera out.
"Dad's gonna love this!" She exclaimed.
As she aimed her camera to take the shot she noticed something was wrong. The "star" was moving right. It was getting bigger.
Pulling the camera away, she saw the object getting faster and faster. A massive ball of flame hurtling towards the general area. As it approached, she just stared at it.. Then, with the sound of a low-flying aircraft, it passed over her, her eyes never leaving it.
As it continued on she saw it wash heading straight for Mt St Helens. A few seconds later, the object collided with the side of the mountain, sending chunks of rock and rubble flying all over. Soon afterwards, the girl was almost knocked off t

Fifty years passed, and in the Autobot Academy, Jady made her home. Many mechs, who she had turned heads, tried to woo her and gain her spark. But Jady's only answer was, "I'm sorry...my spark belongs to another...~"
It was at that time when Ultra Magnus became a little worried about the young femme, but he did not wish to bother her about it. He hoped that a miracle would very soon come to them.
One morning, Jady was walking along the corridor, towards one the study centres. Looking down at the books she was holding, it was clear to see she had a lot on her mind and obviously distracted. It was then, when an accidental bump occurred between her and another bot.
"OOF~!!" Jady jolted back from it.
"I'm so sorry~! I wasn't looking where I was going~!" As she looked up at the bot, she gasped as her optics widened, for she recognized the bot right away.

"Shut up already, will you?!" Sarah Williams yelled at the buzzing alarm clock on her nightstand before slamming her palm down on the snooze button.
Her hand flopped back onto the bed, as she rolled over onto her stomach and buried her head in her pillow, the last vestiges of a pleasant dream fading away. "Sarah! Come on! You're going to be late!" Karen's shrill voice called from outside the bedroom.
Sarah groaned. Was it too much to ask for five more minutes? Of course it was Grudgingly, Sarah rolled out of bed, her hair a mess of tangles that covered her face, making her look like a relative of Cousin It. Blind to her surroundings, she deftly made her way out of her bedroom and to the bathroom, slamming the door in the process.

A Dark War introductionA long time ago, in a time when humans and dragons lived together, humans feared dragons with deep respect and dragons watched over the humans and protected them. They even taught humans some of their magic. But one day, a dragon betrayed them all and broke the vows of the dragons to never interfere with human affairs or steal their properties by taking their sheep and livestock. He was punished most severely but that didn't stop the humans' hatred and rage. They started to kill off the dragons one by one over the period of hundreds of years and hired and trained dragon slayers to hunt down hidden dragons. As to this day there are few dragons left; all hidden in their own world unknown to humans, scattered from the western kingdoms to the eastern kingdoms, and from the northern kingdoms to the southern kingdoms. And because of this a war broke out between the two opposing sides of the dragon species, one that devoted their lives toA Dark War introduction5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Jareth waited a couple of minutes after Sarah left to move. He was still impressed by her acceptance of the situation, and because of that he wanted to respect her command to stay out of her room... but temptation is great. He slowly moved toward her room, but as his hand was about to touch the doorknob, he pulled back sharply and reprimanded himself. There were plenty of other places in the apartment to explore without invading her bedroom.
Trying to ignore the tempting door to Sarah's bedchamber, Jareth moved into the room he'd slept in last night. He glared at the small couch; a love seat that wasn't quite long enough to allow him to stretch out then turned his gaze to the rest of the small room. A small boxy TV sat across from the couch with a coffee table separating the two. One wall held a medium sized window and another was completely covered with bookshelves.

Ever since he had serenaded her with his musical number, Bumblebee and Jady were now always seen together. This made Wasp more jealous than ever whenever he saw them. But he dared not to do anything, especially not in front of Jady. Later that day while continuing their training, Sentinel had called all the cadets together in the assembling area.
"Listen up you bunch of cogs," he told them, "a brand new supply of training gear has eventually arrived at the camp. However, I have sent for a new cadet to join our team. His name is Brickshield and he will be helping Wasp and Ironhide with moving the supplies to storage. That's all for now."
