Incubus Preview"Thank God you've come."
Gaspard certainly hadn't been expecting that though it was appreciated. The other man didn't sound like he was joking, which would've been understandable since Gaspard was a man of the cloth after all, indeed he actually sounded a bit grave. Gaspard watched as immediately after the man opened the door to him he quickly walked into the kitchenette. Gaspard quietly closed the front door to the small house and joined his new landlord. The other man, shorter than Gaspard and a little heaver, hastily straightened some papers and held out a ring of two keys.

What Have We Learned?Gaspard thought it was strange that when he'd called up to Xavier to tell him he was making dinner the younger man just yelled curtly back down to him.

He figured the other musician must've been taking a nap or something, perhaps he wasn't feeling well. However this theory became less and less likely as he heard thuds and strange footfalls coming from the second floor as he tried to wait for the water to boil. His curiosity finally getting the better of him, Gaspard lowered the heat and went upstairs to see what his friend was doing.

Sander jumped up and sat on the edge of the stage, next to his newest and greatest master piece. He swung his legs a little and was embittered by the way his strange thoughts made his success fray at the edges and dull. That was when he heard a soft clanking.

The young Golds clapped as the high pitched string sounding note marked the end of Félicité's master work. Well, it was his master work for that moment. He only needed it to pass his exam and earn him his certification. It did.

Daddy Chekov"Yes, oh yes, what a good bay-beee " Sulu continued to coo over his personal thoroughbred Onischian trap. It resided in a medium sized pot, over the rim of which its leaves were drooping. Sitting atop a thick stalk was a wide, pink flower head that opened and closed with three folds. It snapped shut with a screech and a crunch as Sulu fed it a tribble.

"MOMMY!" The toddler cried. He'd fallen some distance off a stone wall in the gardens and scratched his face something awful. Unfortunately, his mother, Queen Sparrow, was off doing queen's business in the town. A relatively young man named Jasper, butler for a short time for the queen, was carrying the boy to a washroom.

For One More Day With You 8The Mating Dance Suns Festivals were indeed fast approaching. Guy-Manuel began to wonder if, perhaps, they should take some time off of the night scene to prepare not just themselves but their music. Music was HUGE during those festivals, with all the dancing, so people were likely to expect some special cuts from them. Thomas did not object to the idea but he was having a wonderful time going to Falco or Tahiti-80 or any of the plethora of lovely clubs in Southern Wolfgang every other night. His confidence had FINALLY reached normal levels, or so it seemed, and Guy-Manuel did not want to deprive him of that.For One More Day With You 82 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Hetalia Israel OCIn a decent apartment on the third floor of a complex somewhere near Tel Aviv, light smooth music swam in the air. Two violins sang, one a little more lively than the other, giving life to an otherwise drab scene. Two young men, both far older than they looked and neither truly a man, played together in the living room of said apartment. Israel and his sort of neighbor Tunisia were playing the violin together on a holy day. Tunisia loved the violin. Israel loved having the talent to play and if playing with his neighbor made him a good neighbor then so much the better.Hetalia Israel OC3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

For One More Day With You 9Since they were already closer to the northern part of the Sixth country than not, the only direction they really needed to go now was east. Before the land really started to incline, going up into a mountain shape, there would be one small town just beyond the mountain valley. Further east than that there wouldn't be much by means of civilization for some time, not until they got to the "zone." Typically, areas that were either left to the animals or were known to include Crescendoans (or both) were referred to as zones. At first, governments of the world worried that this may seem to equate these special people with animals and be insultingFor One More Day With You 92 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
