My Love for you will not be understood
By those who have never seen a raven's feather
Glisten in the winter moonlight
Or those that have not seen ice melt
At the mere touch of a warm hand
Those that fear the darkness in your eyes
Do not know that on a starless night
The stars are just behind the clouds
Not failing to bestow their light
And they have never found a treasure
In the depth of a tenebrous cavern
Or seen behind a hideous mask
The wondrous sight of silent, hidden beauty
My Love for you will not be understood
And it was never meant to be
It is but a secret kept by the dungeons
And remains, like you, a mystery
Bright EyesShe can't take her eyes off of him.Bright Eyes5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
From the moment she walks into her first class, she can't look away.
It's not like he's a particularly fine specimen of pubescent manhood - reddish blond hair, slim build, clothes too dark for his complexion (and wouldn't Kanaya be tickled at that, Terezi criticizing someone else's fashion) and heavy black glasses over his eyes. She doesn't think he notices her peeking at him - he doesn't look back, at least she doesn't think so. Then again, he could be shooting her a death glare behind those shades and she'd never know.
Stupid stupid dumb. Cool girls like Terezi do not stare at weird guys in their algebra class. No matter how oddly fascinating they are. She sighs, pushing back her own red shades to scrub her eyes. This jet-lag is getting to her something awful. Yeah. That's it. Jet-lag. She's tired, that's why she keeps staring like an idiot.
That's not even convincing in her head.
She wants to put her head down on the desk, but the asshole t

The hell kind of question is that?
Well, you're here. You called this press conference. Obviously, you must have something in mind.
All we wanted for this press thing was to let you nooksuckers know: yes we're aliens, yes we've settled here on Earth, no we're not hostile. That's all. If there's gonna be a media explosion about us I'd at least like to be in control of when and where we set it off.
Still, there must be something your group wants. You're twelve kids holed up in an undisclosed location, there's gotta be something you need.

Mewtwo glared at Lucario, eyes so ferocious he was certain he would go blind if he did not look away from them. Supposedly the powerful psychic had the ability to kill him before he could even blink, and so he sharpened his reflexes as much as possible and was ready to leap away at the slightest notice of an attack. Meanwhile, the dark radiance grew so thick and hopeless that Lucario wondered if maybe he had already been attacked, life fading away from him as he was slowly dying.
Instantly, everything let up as Mewtwo turned his back to them through a swaying motion, Lucario falling forward in surprise.
"Farewell," he said, bending his legs to the ground and getting ready to take off.
"Wait, Mewtwo!" Mew shouted in surprise as she flew towards him, "You came all this way for nothing!?"
"Silence, original!" Mewtwo roared ferociously, stopping himself but still not turning around, "I tolerate your presence under protest. If you wish me to mingle with other legendaries, regular Pokém
ImpressionsLike footprints in the sand, we make an impression in the lives of everyone we pass, everyone we speak to, everyone we come into contact with. Be it for a fleeting moment, or a lifelong engagement, the relationships we share with people are no coincidence. Every word we speak, carries weight. Every insult we hurl is like a spear, every kind gesture we make is like a saving grace. We never know how the things we say will affect the people we know, and to what extent.Impressions6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
It does not take a lifetime of friendship to make an impression on someone. It could be a friendly wave; just the type of positive sign you needed to lift your spirits after a hard day's work, or it could be a intimate conversation you share with someone you only met minutes ago in a chat room. When I think back on the people who have made a lasting impression in my life, I realize that it extends beyond my family ring. I realize that my 2nd grade teacher, my high school art teacher, and the late Prof Jeremy Mullins, have m

She can no longer stand her pain;
She knows shes being selfish
and her choice is all in vain.
But she's thinking for herself now
she's in control today
No one can try to stop her
by taking daddy's gun away.
She quickly writes a note to her friends
there is so much she wants to say
tears streaming from her eyes...
will they understand why she can't stay?
She begs them to forgive her
for what she's determined to do
She tells them its ok to be sad
after all, she had cried too.
She gently lifts her daddy's gun
here's the last decision she will make
her flesh becomes the island
and her blood becomes the lake

A shuddering breath came out as a puff of white mist, a small form shivering in the dark. While the abandoned church slated for demolition in the spring provided a roof over her head and kept her out of the snow and wind, it did little to keep six year old Blake Belladonna warm.
“Papa, I wanna go home...”
It had been one day since bandits attacked her village, the merciless humans sending the small community of Faunus into a panic. Dust weapons boomed like fireworks. Faunus men, women, and children screamed as they fled from the wooden shacks that were their homes, trying to escape the unforgiving slaughter. With only their farming tools and their own natural prowess as their weapons, the Faunus men of the village rushed the bandits head on, hoping to give their wives and children t

Now and then I think of when we were younger,
Like when you and I were more equal,
Told myself that you were my brother,
But felt so lonely in your company,
But that was then and it's an ache I still remember.
You can get addicted to a certain kind of power,
Like ruling all of Asgard,
Always and forever,
So when I found that I was a frost giant,
Odin you said that I would still be your son,
But I'll admit that I was glad that I was not.
But you didn't have to favor Thor,
Make out like I was another relic,
And that now I'm nothing,
And I don't even need your love,
But you treat me like a villain,
And that feels so rough,
No you didn't have to lie to me,
Have our friends turn on me,
And then aid your battle,
I guess that I don't need that though,
Now you're just a father that I used to know,
Now your just a mother that I used to know,
Now your just a brother that I used to know.
Now and then I think of all the times you helped me brother,

Weiss hated Yang.
Well, hate was such a strong word. She really didn't hate the blonde. Yang just irritated her to no end. Like right now.
“Wow,” Yang said, not the least bit perturbed by Weiss' hostile reaction. “Tough day?”
That wasn't even the half of it.
Currently, Weiss lay face down on her bed. Next to her desk was her discarded school bag which contained multiple homework assignments due next week. Myrtenaster, Weiss' prized rapier, lay across the top of her desk, waiting to be cleaned.

As usual, Blake was the first to awaken.
It started with the twitch of her ears, both sets, followed by a contented sigh which came out like a purr. Then there was the stretching of her extremities, Blake's back arching like a cat's, before golden eyes blinked open and examined the world with feline sharpness.
As the first light of dawn shone through the crack in Team RWBY's curtains, Blake sat upright in bed. Her eyes narrowed. Something was... off. Glancing around the room, trying to identify the source of this feeling, Blake was left unsatisfied when nothing looked out of place.
Maybe she was just imagining things.
Following that line of thought, Blake silently got out of bed, grabbed her towel, and made her way to the washroom for her early morning shower.

Yet they don't give in

He sits behind his desk--he's not needed downstairs since the general public has dispersed, and now the only sound to be accounted for are the quiet tap-tappings of the beginning of rain on the roof of the Lounge and the sound of feathers being ruffled. Oswald Cobblepot takes the long, green-smoking cigarette from underneath his beakish nose. Of course he's learned never to rely on what he hears; even the tiniest of whispers, the smallest of gossips, could be misleading in the notorious Gotham City.
She shifts again and the Penguin turns his attention to her, glove-clad hand guiding his smoke back to his lips. She's company--his kind of company. An African Grey, purchased off the black market, and in perfect condition. He holds a hand out for her and she examines his beady eyes with her own, performing a surreptitious two-step and sliding onto the knuckles of his glove.
