they came over on a boat i imagine,
just like the rest of them,
from lucerne or bavaria or kaposvar or drywseved
escaping medieval forests, rain playing peat bogs
like organ keyboards,
they were farmers, sown to wheat like arranged marriage,
mike had one ox, two bulls and a chest like stone & mortar,
he was a good man, looked god in the eyes at dawn,
whispered secrets to his bedsheets at night,

when he was eleven, ed built the honesdale canal with nothing except
his hands and the lord as a witness,
don't take my word for it but rumor has it there was a little napoleon
in him after all,
it was after the war,
the one of blue and grey and red
they must've looked up like children do
must've seen her, slow dancing in the harbor,
marveled at the way her arm never grew weary, brow never sweaty,
the way the green brown water smiled up a

Huffing, Arthur pulled from Alfred, standing up and all but marching towards the door, ready to deck whoever it was that dared to interrupt him while he was working his magic! As he yanked the door open, Arthur scowled at the lad on the other side of the door, who was visibly shaking in his boots.
"Uh... delivery?" the voice cracked, making him seem weaker and weaker as he cowered behind the outstretched boxes, wrapped in a plastic bag.
Feeling his eye twitch, Arthur handed the boy some money, telling him to keep the change as they swapped. Kicking the door shut with his foot, Arthur calmed himself, plastering a smile on his scowling face, walking past the living room and calling over his shoulder.
"We eat at the dining table, please follow me"
"Holy shit," Alfred panted, the only words he was able to say after Arthur had pulled away and gone to the door. He reached up, touching his cheek, where he could still feel Arthur's lips, moving to his ear, which felt like it was bur

And I shall tell you a tale, one that is no joke
So do not laugh or giggle or squeal
Because this story is far too real
Once upon a time
In a land untouched by humankind
There flew and flitted a tiny bird
And when he flew, his song could be heard
Chip! He would say, oka-chee-wee!
Come now, sing with me!
And this was the song of the Dusky
The Sparrow who lived beside the Sea
And through dry stalks of golden grass
He would dart around rather fast
Searching for his favorite treat
A nice mosquito for which to eat
And he might bring a gift for his lady fair
A twig, a leaf, a piece of hair
And with utmost skill she would weave
Those objects into the nest she did need
Chicks her goal, those wide gaping beaks
Where all that a mother could hope to receive
Soon three little eggs, of lightly sprinkled gray
Sat in the nest, speaking of new life on its way
And one by one the eggs did hatch
And for each mouth, there was another bug to catch

One of the things Genesis hated about testing new Materia was that he couldnt skip those sessions. Of course the big wigs at Shinra insisted on using First Class SOLDIERs to carry out with these missions, since they were the most qualified and the most skillful with the use of magic.
But, why they always picked the ones that backfired?
After one of those sessions, poor Angeal slept during a whole week due to an extra-potent Sleep Spell and Sephiroths mane avoided miraculously a powerful Fire Spell. His coat had less luck and burnt to ashes, leaving the poor man only with his boots and trousers. Needless to say that he caused quite the commotion among the feminine staff (and part of the masculine) when he had to go to his apartment so scantly dressed. As for Genesis himself, he had to deal with the worst Ice Spell he had ever seen or, m

She was at the church, though the white snow already covered flowers.
He could forget the touch of the chestnut hair as soft as silk. After the end of innumerable years even eyes shining like stars could go pale in his memory. But not a smile. Sincere, almost always happy, only for him. Smile without the contempt, only full of ardent love. Seeing her shiver, he felt the self-hatred rising up.
With a delicate gesture wiped away a tear was flowing down her cheek. She stroked his face with her small fingers shyly, as if distrusting.

When I think about you, I remember it all wrong.When I think of that first day, I will always remember the air as being too warm, and your clothes being wrinkled, your hair a complete mess. I remember how your nerves had your every sentence starting with “uhm” and how I hated indecisiveness and you couldn’t make up your mind, and I remember thinking I could do better without you. Now, I know that first impressions aren’t quite as important as they tell you every time you open that front door with your mismatched socks and complimentary sarcasm, armed with a crooked smile and bad grammar. Because if that were true, I would have said hello and goodbye in the same sentence. Hell, if that were true I never would have loved you.When I think about you, I remember it all wrong.2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Genesis looked around himself. He was in a dark cave that had small glowing crystals lodged in the rocky ceiling. It was quiet and far away from Hojo and Shinra; something that he had not known since he was a child living in Banora. Back when he was called a girl by many of the other children because he was slimmer and had more femine features. That and he probably looked like a girl at the time. Angeal had come to his rescue many times, just as he did when they joined SOILDER. Saying good-bye was hard for Genesis because for most of his life he could trust Angeal with anything... and now...
In this farewell
There's no blood
There's no alibi
'Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies
How did he ever even entertain the idea of saying good-bye? ...and after all the hurtfull words and the killing...
So let mercy come
And wash away
Maybe, one day, he would be able to forgive himself, but not now.
What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become

The world is still.
The deer perk their ears up at the crunch of snow under my fur-lined boots, curious. One paws at the ground nervously before taking flight across the open expanse, the herd following in his wake. They spring lightly over twisted roots and disappear in the fog. Another day, another place, perhaps I would follow, take thrill from the zeal of the hunt.
But today has a different purpose.
The World Tree towers no less than before; if anything, it is wider than I recall. The bough reaches into the very clouds, past hills, past mountains; perhaps even past stars. It matters not. I slide the pack from my shoulder, landing it with a heavy thump on the frozen ground, thundering across the silence. I leave it behind, save for Gungnir and a length of rope, padding my way to the Tree.
The bark is slightly warm something hums in the air and the silence returns when I remove my hand.
The Tree demands blood.

"This is why I hate the beach." he muttered, standing up and brushing himself down. I never trusted that puppy. Kicking sand up, bolting down the beach like an animal...so uncouth."

A brilliant light pierced the clouds, revealing the Great and Powerful TRIXIE to thunderous applause! The entire town had gathered to see Trixie's fantastic magic tricks. Several jealous ponies even challenged the Great Trixie on her prowess! But Trixie bested them all.
Exhausted from the show, Trixie basked in the praise of two of her followers, to whom she regaled with the time she'd vanquished the dreaded Ursa Major! Her story was so spell-binding (yet completely accurate) that by the time she finished, it was already time to hit the hay!
That night, Trixie awoke to a terrible crash. She arose gracefully from her bed to investigate the commotion outside. It seemed that her two well-meaning fans had attracted an Ursa Major into town just so they could see her defeat it!
The entire town was in a panic, but the Great and Powerful Trixie knew better. She knew on sight that it was not, in fact, an Ursa Major, but a much punier Ursa Minor. Just a baby. Trixie sc

A few stray feathers slipped free of his elegant wing, being carried by the wind down into the illuminated city of Midgar. Sometimes, Genesis just needed space. Space to gather his thoughts, to just be there and feel like himself, with no one there to pressure him to do anything. With the sound of the wind rushing past his ears, he took a deep breath and let it out again.
"Oh, sorry. I didn't know there was anyone up here."
Genesis tucked his wing close to him instantly and spun around, looking for the intruder. A girl with reddish-brown hair had been climbing back down the stairs into the building.
"Wait! Um.. I mean, well," Genesis stuttered. The girl looked up curiously. "What I mean is, you can stay." Genesis

The Doctor knew it was no use pleading the TARDIS for help catching Rose. The old girl had taken a liking to her from the first moment she stepped inside. Cursing her head start, he chased after her.
