You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

Protective Tendencies One shot-
That was how Tony had described his R&D labs to Bruce that fateful day on the helicarrier. That was exactly what it was and surprisingly Bruce didn't feel like fleeing to another country. Perhaps it was that Tony was not afraid of him or the other guy. In fact Tony was still poking and prodding the good doctor trying to get him to as he so acutely put it 'hulk out'. No matter what Stark did Banner never hulked out. Not once. Not even when Tony showed him what he deemed 'The green room' so he could let the bigger guy out to play. Bruce just laughed it off before going back to his lab.
Tony was still working on convincing Bruce that the Hulk was a nice guy, using the same old 'you both saved my life' line. When he brings that up Bruce simply pretends he didn't hear. However after Tony leaves Bruce stops writing the equation he was working on and thinks about what the goateed genius said. Both of him had saved his best friend. Heh, he had

Kyle waited impatiently in Stan's doorway as his best friend got himself ready. Said Jewish boy heard his mom honking outside, which only made him even more eager to get going. His mom could be so god-damned annoying sometimes.
"Just my ass?" Stan smirked back, appearing at the bottom of the staircase. The raven was carrying a suitcase in one hand, a backpack slung over his shoulder, and a pair of black and white converse.
"Shut up smart ass." Kyle joked back, rolling his eyes and holding out a hand to help with his friends bags. "I'll take these to mom's car, get your shoes on already. I cant believe you just woke up!"
"Yeah, yeah." Stan waved, as if he was shoeing Kyle away. He handed his bags over to his friend, knowing that insisting he do it would only result in Kyle insisting right back that he do it. "Thanks dude."
Kyle always won their arguments, so Stan just figured he would give up before they even started.
Kyle's CrushI have these feelingsKyle's Crush5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I keep deep inside
These feelings I cant show
I must save and hide
I don't think he feels
The same way that I do
When i was confused
I usually came to you.
When we are together
I gather my might
When he is around
It just feels oh so right
I dream about what
I could possibly do
Oh, the scenarios
My mind can pursue.
I yearn just to feel
His kind gentle touch
And when he must leave,
I miss it so much
I want to feel his
Soft lips on top mine
And feeling our bodies
For now I'll just love him
From here, From afar
And one day I'll express this
How special you are
Until then, that day
I'll contain this strong rush
When I'm around you
That thing called a Crush.

Tweek jumped, eyes wide as they stared at the crystal-eyed beauty. He couldn't even remember why he was here, let alone what Craig had just asked him. Oh God- Craig would be so MAD if he knew Tweek had been so preoccupied with staring at him that he had totally forgotten to listen- "Nnngh..." Tweek whined pathetically. "I-I don't- I-don't remember" He murmured shyly down at his feet. "...what you asked, I-I mean..."
Craig rose an eyebrow, resisting a glare in the boy's direction and simply taking another step closer to the boy. Bending down only the slightest, Craig brought himself head-head with the boy leaning in on himself so...self-consciously.
"I told you I wanted to hang out, yeah?" He murmured into Tweek's ear, a bit of a falter to his usual confidence but still a hell-of-a-lot stronger than Tweeks. "I told you, you didn't have to come."
Oh God. Craig was RIGHT next to him. He was so close that Tweek could smell him. He smelled like...like a mix of vanilla and...and bamb
Roland and Rosedew by Rebecca S. RussellRoland and Rosedew By Rebecca RussellRoland and Rosedew by Rebecca S. Russell3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

This creep had been another serial killer, mainly of torturing and killing women then leaving clues and a calling card behind, perfect bait for Sherlock. He had figured it out within 12hrs, which led them to chasing the killer down because they always run. Always. The only reason he hadn't been tackled by John or Sherlock yet was because he was packing a .45 caliber handgun as well as a small dagger. John could only guess at why he had the knife… and who he used it on, considering the victims always had their throats cut.
John was lagging behind slightly just in case the killer tried anything and Sherlock had disappeared behind an alley corner right on the man's heels. By the time John rounded the corner, Sherlock and the killer were in the mi

It was true though, all the pain and bullying gets to you after 2 years of it non-stop.

"W-well " Even his stuttering sounded hopeless now. Molten tears stung at his baby blue eyes, and the little blonde directed his gaze downward. He didn't receive the luxury of a chance to explain. Because Kenny once again broke the silence.
"Butters- y-you're been giving Cartman blowjobs?" Kenny stuttered. Kenny never stuttered. Kenny was the most self-assured person Butters had even known, and here he sounded so hopelessly lost and confused. It was awful, and even though there was nothing Butters could think to say that could save him, he knew he had to try.
"W-well-" He repeated the pitiful utterance once more, biting his lip gently and knowing full well that for once Kenny didn't appreciate how adorable the gesture was. The taller boy was much too pre

Summary: Sam Winchester knew that every word they had said was true. So, he took the beating. Without question. Without thinking. But what he didn't expect was Dean's ultimate reaction - and what that ended up leading up to. Wincest\Weecest\Teencest.
Third Person POV
"Sammy, no. Just don't."
Samuel Winchester swallowed and looked away from his brother, ashamed as he sat in the passengers seat of the '67 Impala. He could feel the humming of the engine underneath him, and right at that moment, it was easier to pay attention to rather than trying to decipher his emotions to come up with something to say to his blood. He knew Dean was mad at him - actually, furious, but the reason why he hadn't told him was solely because he didn't want to worry the teen again. However, he guessed it kind of backfired on him.
