James sat in the Great Hall as he had a spare class. As none of his friends gained the same spare, James walked around the school alone. Bored out of his mind James just sat there trying to sleep.
He could have gone to the Gryffindor common room and slept in his bed but he didn't really want to go to sleep. He wanted something to do but couldn't think of anything.
There was 20 minutes left of class before the lunch bell would ring and he would have his friends back. James lay on his back at the table in the Great Hall pondering if he should do his homework for muggle studies.
"Nah." muttered James, as he would rather do his work with His girlfriend Lily Evans who was an expert in that class for she was muggle born.
James was just about closing his eyes, and actually feeling sleep overpowering him when he heard footsteps.
Looking up quickly, James saw Severus Snape, an ex-friend of Lily that he didn't really care for walk in. The whole school new he had a giant crush on Lil

1. Most of us can't do compliments without sounding creepy, so we give up at a young age. It doesn't mean we don't love you.
2. Whilst we don't condone bad hygiene, as men we sweat and frankly a little consideration would be appreciated.
3. As men, we're supposed to be big and strong. Most of us aren't. The only way we can convince ourselves we are is by regularly noticing how small you are. It's a defence mechanism.
>3.a. Please don't wear heels if you're over 5'6''. It eats away our self-esteem.
4. If you think we're irritating you because we secretly like you, you're probably right. The only problem is it's such a good secret, we haven't figured it out yet.
5. When we ask you out, say what you mean. We don't want to date your friends; we want to date you and if you convene a committee to make the decision, you're obviously not blown away. Anything less than 'yes' is 'no' in our minds, and we move on fast.

"Hello Crowley." ohh, he was so... sexily angelic. Crowley had hid his true feelings for about the first five minutes since they had started working together, but when he couldn't contain himself any longer he had realised that Cas's time in the brothel had taught him that he was the ultimate misfit. A gay, rebel angel. Since then the pair had had a lot of fun.
"So is it work time or playtime, darling?" Crowley grinned.
"I'll leave it up to you... darling?"

Just get out of my head
I don't want you here anymore
Can't you see?
Every time you're there,
I get angry.
I like you
Perhaps that's' an understatement,
I don't know
There is so much good about you,
Yet so much bad
I can't think this way,
It kills me.
Dwells in me
It hurts to think,
Don't want to feel this way
Can't feel this way,
We jump back
Is it real?
Is it just mindless,
Is it just silly games?
Don't want to know
Hurt too much if it wasn't
Tomorrow will be the end
I'll exchange a good bye,
Leave you behind.
Follow if you like
I won't stop you.

Knock it down,
Or come at me
Come look for me.

I fake a smile
No one notices
I fake a laugh
Drowning in my inner tears
Stabbing myself with words
Completely hateful words
I'm torturing myself
With Painful memories
into unacheiveable dreams
Is so far away now
of miles away
Theres nothing left
But my own sadness
echoing through my mind
Through my soul
Shaking me to my core
I do nothing but cry
Letting out my agony
My pain, My torture
In silent bitter weeps
My heart ripping in half
Over and over again
By my own will
I push farther toward
The edge of sanity
No one'll love me
What's the use anyway?
And as i sit
On my bedroom floor
In the fetal position
I rock myself violently
Eager to feel the shooting pain
As my head slams
Against the wall
The only, single thought
That runs through my mind
"Dying would be so much easier
Then living in this hell"

It feels like the world is ending for me.
I look in the mirror, what a dismal sight
I've failed to preserve my lucidity.
They have become most insufferably loud
Those familiar voices that swirl in my head.
They cloud my judgment with a black shroud
Then I hear a voice that fills me with dread.
"You will listen to us," the voice proclaimed
Who are you, why must you torment me so?
"All will be revealed," the voice exclaimed
Please forgo, for so much I must know.
I am the demon that chills you to the bone
The one that makes you cry like a child.
I am the demon that haunts the unknown
The one so vicious and wild.
Alone in your nightmares I leer
For I am the DEMON OF FEAR.
I am the demon that warms your soul
The one that makes you smile and blush.
I am the demon your heart will console
The one so beautiful and plush.
I hold you gently like a dove
For I am the DEMON OF LOVE.
I am the demon that burns your flesh

"Don't be silly," Carris quipped boldly, without looking up. She lifted a palm full of sand and let it drift through her fingers. "Why would pirates live in a two-person rowboat?"
Although only two years older, those two years gave Carris courage that didn't exist in her six year old brother Willie. Willie was a shy boy, with sad blue eyes and hair that fell in limp curls. Carris's features were more angular; her eyes glowed whenever she corrected Willie. As she saw it, that was her job, to correct people, because she knew all sorts of things. She knew them without having to read about them, or having someone teach her, she just knew she was right.
"Maybe they liked the colour," Willie replied passively. He was never angered by Carris's need to be right; he didn't take much notice of her remarks, neve

a cut, you see, is perfect. it's kind. it's understanding. it washes away all chaos and emotional turmoil with beads of red (and if you're deep enough, mahogany) that quickly join and run down the length of your arm.

'John, have you seen my phone?' Sherlock asked me. I looked up and frowned.
'Why?' I asked. He never used his phone.
'Because I need it' He said while throwing stuff everywhere and making a mess of the apartement. I sighed.
'It's on the table' I said. He threw everything off the table and found his phone by hearing a soft tud when it landed on the floor. He picked it up and started tapping away. It looked like he was doing something hard, because he had a kind of pained expression on his face. I thought about what he could be doing, but decided to shrug it off and continued to read the paper. I was just about to read something about drunken driving or something, when my phone bleeped, saying I got a text. I picked it up from the little table and saw it was from Sherlock. I frowned and looked at him. He was staring at his feet. Weird, I thought. I opened it.

Chapter 8: The Zephyr and the Storm
Time is but the storm, my love, nothing more; but you—
you are the Zephyr, the wind that carries the storm.
The words still rang in her ears like so many church bells,
a clarion thunder announcing the birth of some false prophet.
After all this time, she couldn't possibly be the Zephyr—
but she was. She could feel it.
And if she let herself, she knew she would carry this storm
off the edge of the world, and then next year would never come—
tomorrow would never come. No, it was too much power for her.
The storm would end in Tokyo.
"You're doing the right thing," he tried to assure her.
With a wave of his hand, another gate opened.
She pulled him close, gave him her last kiss. "I love you.

These words they pain me
These thoughts they kill me
The memories remain crystal clear
Every single moment plays through my head
Reminders of you emerge from the smallest things
That certain song that plays on the radio
My backpack you loved
The photograph of our dorm
A million small things
They sound so little but mean so much
These moments make me wonder
They make me wonder why
Why I never said goodbye
Why I can never say goodbye
A girl so young
The perfect friend
The last one you would expect to pass
Gone forever without a word
Taken away but something so terrible
If only I had said goodbye.

Her descent seems like an eternity through the shadows, before a small, malevolent laugh fills the air. Then, with a sudden jolt, she lands on something hard, something rough and dirty, flooded with light. The pavement that has rushed up to meet her face brings a new sensation with it pain.
As she slowly lifts herself up, she looks around her, slightly dazed from her travel. A long cut runs from her cheek down to he

Despite Snape's many attempts, Quirrell was still eluding him. He had even moved his seat to the other end of the staff table in an effort to avoid the Potions Master. Also, Snape was still operating discreetly so as to avoid rousing the suspicions of the other professors. He knew perfectly well that he was not a favorite colleague, however that did not deter him from his job.
He was pacing the length of his office, mulling over a possible ambush plan, when Dumbledore appeared in the doorway.
"Come in, Headmaster." Snape said, pausing by his desk.
Dumbledore stepped inside, and shut the door behind him. He waved his wand, and cast the Muffliato spell.
"The mirror must be moved, my boy." The Headmaster said, once he was sure the room was secure.
"Why?" Snape asked, somewhat surprised. "Does that mean I don't have to patrol the fourth floor anymore?"
"The mirror has been discovered, and must be hidden again," Dumbledore answered simply. "And, yes. You may return to your previous r
