Love Is Deaf, Not BlindI sat on the couch and watched my brothers wrestle. It was quite an unfair match. Peter was only twelve and Laine was now twenty. The age difference was large. A hand tapped my shoulder and I looked up. Mother pointed to the door and I turned to see Alfred standing in the doorway, a broad smile gracing his lips. I smiled back and stood. I walked to the door and held out my hand. Instead, Alfred pulled me into a brotherly embrace. He was warm despite the snow flurrying outside. Mother and Peter waved goodbye as we headed out.Love Is Deaf, Not Blind3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Alfred and I walked down the sidewalk, cars rarely passing by. If Alfred was rambling like he did in school then it was just to hear his voice since I couldn't hear him anyways. The younger male nudged me and I looked up at him. He pointed to the sky and stopped. I stopped as well and I too looked at the dark sky. Flurrying snow fell peacefully around my friend and I, the stars and snow hard to tell apart. A star shot across the sky. He smiled and I saw him whisper

"Why, hello there, ma cherie~"
You jumped and let out a yelp as an alluring, accented, sexy voice interrupted your rest.
You looked up and inspected who had spoken.
He's so handsome! He had shoulder-length wavy blonde hair, crystal clear blue eyes, and a little stubble on his face, which you found incredibly cute. He wore a casual, dark, navy suit and he was eyeing you with a charming look. Your breath hitched in your throat and you began to blush.
"What's a pretty girl like yourself doing here all alone?" he asked, flashing a smile, making you blush even harder. You dubbed his accent as French.
"U-um, I was just enjoying the weather..." you squeaked.
"Oh? It's very beautiful this evening, non?" he asked, taking a seat very close to you. "Not as beautiful as ma cherie,

You were running to the nearest store to buy Greece a birthday present. Japan had called you earlier in the day to ask you if you wished Greece a happy birthday YESTERDAY! Yesterday Feb.3 was his birthday and today was Feb4! You had completely forgotten about his birthday. He was your crush for so long and yet you forgot about his birthday.

Fallen Grace (Hetalia)Maddie Williams looked down at the world below her from her high vantage point in the clouds. How she longed to be back down with them once more, to get away from this so called 'heaven'. Having died only a month ago, she was still not used to the world of angels, it was foreign to her. There was so much to learn before she could gain the rank of a guardian angel, something she so desperately wanted so she can go back and roam with the members of her past life, to roam with her past love, but alas, she was not awarded that delicacy yet. The new angel stood and stretched her wings, peering over the edge of the cloud. If she were to jump, what would be the consequences? Death was surely something she didn't need to worry about, but what about expulsion? Could they send her to the gates of hell for escaping those of heaven? She would have to find out, because before she knew it, she was off the cloud, plummeting to earth.Fallen Grace (Hetalia)3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

You stared blankly into your mirror, unable to believe that the woman in front of it was in fact, you. You're hair was tied back in an elegant knot, your dress showed just the right amount of skin, and your make-up was impeccable. No, this certainly was not you. Having been born and raised on a small family farm hours outside of London, you were certainly not used to dressing up in such a fashion; however, it was now part of your job as a member of the Special Operations Executive, or SOE for short.
In the last few years, Europe had descended into a state of all out war. It began with the Germans taking Sudetenland and quickly began to snowball until it seemed like the entire world was participating in one huge war. As a citizen of the United Kingdom, specifically England, you felt it was your duty to support your country in any way possible. You started by saving money to give to the National Savings Movement; however, you didn't feel like you were doing enough.

As your best friend Holly flung open the doors, you were immediately repulsed by the scene that was the bar. You knew it was a mistake when she had begged you to go, telling you that you needed to "get out more" and such. It had been a month since your boyfriend of two years broke up with you, and you had refused to leave your apartment until Holly had begged you to go with her.
You were not used to the party scene. All the seats in front of the bar were filled, as there was some kind of unofficial beer-guzzling contest going on. An albino seemed to be the one winning. The lights were dimmed, and over the loud chants of the people watching the beer-guzzling contest, you could hear the loud, arrogant, and obviously drunk voice of some English guy singing karaoke.

He had red, pink, orange, yellow, white, lavender, and even blue, all symbolizing different things. He had carefully picked and grown them from the start so he knew that they were the real-deal, not just some cheap, store-bought fake flower bouquet. No, that would not do.

"You know, I truly don't see what is so fascinating about this game, [Name]." You were on your knees, standing sternly on your plush couch, gripping the Wii remote tightly. You didn't bother to acknowledge Roderich's observation due to how intense the game was getting. If he was going to insult Skyward Sword in your house, you'll insult him by ignoring him! Who cares if he was your boyfriend; Legend of Zelda was your LIFE. Roderich glanced at you from the top of his glasses, staring at you in amusement. "Is that how it's going to be, huh?" With a smirk, he stood up and fixed his shirt. He took a step away but was stopped by the Wii nunchuk wrapping its self around his wrist. He turned his head to see you pleading with your eyes for him to stay. He smiled slightly, picking up his wrist and untying the nunchuk. Your mouth gaped at him as he returned the device back to you.

But when you grew to the age of 18, you met a young man. He was a very good-looking young man by the name of Roderich Edelstein. The meeting was not on normal circumstances though. It wasn't a meeting by the baker with the suave young man or the baker's son. No, it was under different reasonings. That day was engraved in your mind.
You were awaiting the return of your father's boat after years and years of him never returning. While you assumed he had been killed while out, you wanted to at least stand and wait for him like your promised him to.

She was smiling up at him in what she obviously thought was a cute or charming way, drumming her fingers against the cover of a small floppy book held in her hands.

"Can you help me?" the girl asked sweetly. "I was wondering if you could tell me which way I should go from here, pretty please?"
"That depends on where you want to end up," Cheshire replied politely, if a bit condescendingly. The girl's smile slipped for a moment, but was quickly hitched back into place. She opened the book a small amount, read a page or so, then shut it with a papery thud and looked up at Cheshire again.
"I don't much care where--" she began in the same sugary voice.

"Not today!" He called as he dived into the TARDIS. The door slammed behind him and the comforting noise of the TARDIS fleeing reached his ears.

"But they won't hurt you ever again, D7."

"Hey, don't cry! It's gonna be alright! We're going to go to a place far far away from them."

No. Sometimes, they are a way of expressing our live and considered as an artistic trait, because everyone is a individual and have free will.

Nobody can stop everyone from creating an inappropriate content, because it is a part of our society. If it's banned, then why are their still inappropriate artwork from famous artists, as nude/horror is a genre of art. They are famous of because of what they express in their own way.

Dystopia Bart can’t remember the last time he had ever seen a star. Then again, he questions if he had ever truly seen a star to begin with. He knows what they’re supposed to look like, how they used to light up the night sky like a million scattered diamonds, or of how you could spend a lifetime counting every single one you see and it wouldn’t even be a quarter of them. That may have been the problem though: due to the heavily polluted skies, you only knew it was night when Reach enforcers came to herd the meat back to their campgrounds. Cause that was all they were now, nothing more than meat bags who were only spared because the Reach saw potential for experimentation. At least, that’s all they were ever since the Reach Apocalypse.
