Aching LoveTo me, there's no specific definition of cute. It's not just being cute or not cute to me. I look at cute as a form of―how should I say it?―irrationality. It's unreasonable. Illogical. Something you can't define.
Every time I look down at my small old dog, walking around slowly on the rug of my living room, still brown and white in fur color, I think "aww", or sometimes even say it aloud. Just once is never enough. Nobody else ever sees me do this. Nobody sees the true side of me, which is generally a wild nature when it comes to anything remotely cute. If I had siblings, I'd bet anything we would be close pals who "aww" at everything in sight, even after the first time. But that's not what I want. I loathe this side of me.
It's when I found her. My ideal step sister. She's insufferable, but cute, though not in the way I imagined.
Frail in appearance, but fierce and tough in attitude. My ideal girl. I didn't think she'd be my sister.
My parents and I are sitting in a spacio

Steve turned away from the blurry window he had been staring at for the past half hour. If he waited a moment longer, one of them was going to explode, and neither of them blowing was ever a good thing.
"Mr. Stark," Steve finally said as he glanced across the room to where Tony had been sitting, waiting impatiently.
"Rogers," Tony replied in almost a monotone. "Are you finally aware of how much time we've wasted? Oh, I'm sure you can wait even longeryou did for more than 70 years. I can't. I'm a busy man."
"Oh, it's Tony again now, is it?" he interrupted as his hand lashed out through the air angrily. "Well, cap, I'm never going to refer to you by your given name. I'm warning you."
Steve shut his eyes and sighed. "Yes, we all know how much you love the word 'captain'. I understand."
"Enough time has wasted! Will you just do it already, dammit!" Tony jumped from the leather couch up to his feet and shut his eyes, waiting for the prickle that wa

She'd been holding his hand and dragging him along at first, but then she had quickly let go when she realized the school might be closing soon.
"Wa-Wait, Puku!" he called back, following after her as fast as he could. He hated the way running made his glasses bounce a little up and down on his nose, so his speed was hindered by the way he kept pushing down on it to keep it perched onto his face. "W-Why are we rushing?!"
"The school might close soon! Hurry!" she answered, finally making it through the open double doors of the main building and into the campus. She stopped, huffing as she regained her breath back, before she turned back around to wait for Ken to catch up.
"So-So it's...in the...school?" he asked between breaths as he panted, then pleaded, "Pl-Please, no mo-more run-running, Puku."
She nodded at his question, then pouted at his request. "Fine, since it's a f

"I lost all my wealth. All my fortune. I don't know how or why."
Steve stared at Tony for a long silent moment, then sighed. "Come in," he said, waving the man into his house.
Tony followed Steve in reluctance through the open doorway, then shut it and locked it after him. He took off his black overcoat as he scanned the living room with cautious eyes.
The man's obviously telling the truth, Steve thought as he rubbed his eyes and made his way to the visible kitchen off to the far side of the living area. He would never even consider stepping foot into this run-down building if he could help it.
"Why didn't you go to Bruce or the other avengers?" Steve asked as he poured whiskey into a clean glass and water in another. "Thought I'd be the last you come to for help."
"They all turned me down, saying it's a good chance to become friends with you," Tony said, then snorted and mumbled, "Yeah, a good chance to kill each other."
Steve nodded in silent agreement as he drop

What honestly humbles me the most when it comes to dA, is that even when I am doing absolutely nothing, and seldom comment on your stuff lately (It's not due to me being uninterested, I just have become super busy lately, and I need to adjust my classwork/dA work) I still average at least 50 pageviews a day. I think that is lovely. While I don't look at pageviews when it comes to popularity, it's nice that my inactivity has made it so I am not forgotten.
So to show my appreciation, I would really like to kick my first year off on dA with a BANG. And that is with what? Making my own contest, with what as a grand prize? A One-Year Premium Membership

What-What was that? Puku and Ken...He'd always known, of course, but was their relationship really that strong? Had their connection really gone that far, that deeply?
He dropped his hand to his side, sighing as the pressure left his mouth. "Puku..." he breathed.
"Yes?" Puku asked from behind him.
He whirled around, his flustered eyes jumping up to meet hers. "O-Oh, you're here! So-Sorry, I didn't mean...Please, I'll help you with the ducks in a moment. Just-Just don't worry."
"Oh, okay. But you-you look pale. Are you-Were you throwing up?" she couldn't seem to help asking, glancing around at the plants right behind him.
"No, it's fine. I did almost. I'm healthy, though, don't worry. Just go back, please," he stressed, staring past her to see Ken at the open doorway with a concerned look on his face.

Instead, love, and love

"Okay, I can't do this anymore." I dropped my pencil down, letting it roll on the paper before me until it stopped. "You know my feelings about this, doctor."
"Why ever not?" My doctor, or therapist to be more specific, sat up straight in his armchair and spread his palms out. "It is precisely because I know your feelings that I'd like you to do this."
"I'm not a writer. I said that a hundred times already." I was becoming frustrated with him, something that has been happening a lot recently.
"If you write down what you wish to say to your wife, it will help your love grow anew and sort out your thoughts. She will never see a single word of this."

RainRain trickles down my window paneRain1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crying diamond tears
Walking down the lane
Frozen in time
Like an old photograph
Bright colors, subdued with nostalgia
Kiss the flowers' velvet dresses
A fresh breeze
Swirls around me in a whirlwind of
Hope and love
I inhale the dreams that died
Buried under the hard ground
That the new rain has unearthed
I dance with abandon
Childish laughter bubbles up like a spring
As I vivaciously stomp through a stagnant puddle
Life breathes around me
As I spin and twirl
Smiling as the sun begins to shine on me
Parting through grey clouds
It beams at me with its gorgeous rays
And we say goodbye to the remnants of the vanishing rain
Watcher of the NightHe waits in the shadowsWatcher of the Night1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watching and learning
Trying to resist
His unconquerable yearning
An actor of rare disguise
Covering half-truths with unfinished lies
His plans twist and turn
Taking years for fruition
After which he disappears
A forgotten apparition
While lesser men succumb
To the beckoning temptation
He stands regardless
Steadfast by his station
Vigil of the darkness
Watcher of the night
Countless men have tried
To evade his inhuman sight
He is the sum of his fears
For he chooses what he wants to be
He has uncertainties, he has doubts
But is afraid intentionally
He tends the shades of the mighty
And the shadows of the weak
Stifling their deceit
And plugging up the leaks
He watches and learns
Trying to fit in
But he'll soon realize
It's a battle he can't win
The cycle repeats
However hard he fights
But his fate is sealed
