“Try looking in the weakling section, right next to Failure and Disappointment!”
Soldier frowned angrily at the woman in front of him, saying “You heard me. Trash like what you requested belongs in the section I ordered it to go in! Now move, cadet, move! The enemy could approach us at any time!”
The woman hurried off, looking stunned.
Soldier was a librarian, and not a very good one, obviously. He never sat at his desk; he stood at attention next to it. Any book he deemed ‘unfit for human reading’ was thrown into a pile behind him labeled ‘Pansy Pile’. Though he enforced the rule of keeping quiet in the library, he was the loudest one there.
Another librarian walked up and gave him a load of books, saying “These need to be filed accordingly, Mr. Soldier. All of these need to go to the first-grade classes

You heard the sound of a twig snapping behind you. Freezing you listened carefully.
"Oh, hello 'ave you seen a white cat?" asked a French accented man. Turning you saw one of the most handsomest men you have ever seen. His hair fell to about his neck and was blonde. He had blue eyes and stubble on his chin.
"N-no," you said, "have you seen my cat she's (give description of cat)."
He shook his head, "Non. Where could he 'ave gone?"
You groaned, "I've been searching for the past two hours and haven't seen any cats."

there are days when
it's painful to even breathe,
your throat closing up on the knowledge
that you don't know
how much longer you'll be waiting on this
band-aided, superglued planet.
every cell in your body vying to be the next to die,
and all you have to tell them is
maybe. maybe next time.
those are the days you spend
cutting rose thorns into your palms
and clenching your fists tight around
jagged reflections and prismed rainbows.
the days you realize
we're losing so much faster than we're learning.
we're maturing faster than we're growing.
adults stuck in the bodies of kids,
moving around, making the mistakes
no one ever wants to look back on.
those are the days you realize
it's not worth living here anymore.
you're using too many burnt-like sugar words
to get what you want, a mistaken human in wolf's clothing.
your lies are becoming louder than your screams,
but if the knife fits wear it on your skin.
this is the age where you feel caught between

It was your typical, average Saturday at the Okumura brothers' dorm. Oddly, someone else was walking the halls today. Sixteen year-old Renzo Shima was busy texting on his cell phone after having a chat with Yukio about his grades as of late. Usually the pink haired teen wouldn't have minded such a talk, but it had forced him to miss an important date.
"Great, now she hates me." Shima mumbled as he read the last not-too-friendly text message and snapped his phone shut before pocketing it. "That's the third chick this month. Am I losing my touch?" Shima laced his arms behind is head and stared at the ceiling as he thought. "I think she had a pretty hot sister, maybe I could-"
Shima stopped in mid-sentence when he heard, and felt, a wet crunch under his right foot. Barely moving his head; the young Exorcist-in-training looked down at his shoe and gulped. He slowly pulled back his foot to reveal the squashed remains of some kind of beetle-like bug. It's yellow, slimy guts were all over the
Boarding School: Avengers AUDr. Fury was a tough principal to impress. He played favorites, and anyone who didn't quite make his standards was humiliated in front of the entire school during assembly or graded harshly, so harshly that he or she flunked. He knew that his students resented him, and he used that to his advantage. One of his favorites was Tony Stark, because he was brilliant, but more importantly, rich and influential. While he wouldn't normally allow a student to get an extension on a grade, Tony could get away with it. But Tony wasn't sick, or stressed. He had an ulterior motive for putting off his paper. He didn't normally attend such plebeian events as parties, but the rumor was that the school's model student, Steve Rogers, was attending. He never went to any of those sort of functions, afraid that if he drank too much and made a mistake he would be kicked off of the football team and a promising career with college football and then the NFL would be over before it started.

Blue’s glare had been fixed permanently on Red for the past hour and a half, and had been becoming a progressively deeper glare the entire time. Everything the innocent little Link was doing just pissed him off, and he didn’t know why that should piss him off, which just pissed him off even more.
All four of them had set up camp in a small clearing in a forest, the almost full moon shining brightly through the still night air. Green had disappeared off somewhere to train, and could hear his quiet distant shouts through the forest.

Uncorrupted rays shone on the pedestal
As it always had when it first was epochal,
There it held the Blade of Evil Bane;
Which at first King of Evil thought it to be legerdemain.
Master Sword only could repel nefarious demons away,
It was working one-way.
Blessed to harm all things sinister.
The pure saber also was key to open Sacred Realm, to the Golden Triforce
Created by three goddesses with their life-source,
Forced to remain in sanctuary.
Inside of Temple of Time, the Chamber of Sages had only shown itself to these few chosen ones,
Ancient cathedral was hidden inside Hyrule Town
Once activated the seal, it became time travel,

Dwelt in the temple of spirit.

Problem caused by these little ghouls.

If one was to break the curse that was onto sage.
Two paths to choose, timeless as it had been
Only young and older of ones could approach within.

From future to past, from past to future, these double battles awaited.
