My mother beat me.
My mother stole,
my mother lied,
one day she stabbed me,
with a knife,
blood dripping on the floor,
I managed to call,
and they carried me,
out the door,
onto the walk,
took me away.
I woke up,
maybe the next day,
my mother beside me,
head in her hands,
I saw tears in her eyes,
but my heart was ice.
"Hi," I managed to say,
"what's your story today?"

They were arguing again. The Winchester brothers always argued. It didn't bother him though, he had gotten used to it. He often sat in the back of the Impala, listening to the two bicker like an old married couple. He zoned them out as usual. Arguing about something so human. Something about a band called ACDC, he wasn't sure. He let out a long sigh. It was another long road trip.
"I'm telling you man, ACDC is way better than that shit you listen to," the eldest brother argued.
"Oh come on Dean, there's nothing wrong with a little pop," the youngest Winchester pressed.
"Sammy, nothing beats ACDC, only Metallica beats ACDC," Dean scorned.
"I'll admit Metallica is alright, but pop is okay. There are some decent pop songs out there," Sam frowned. Dean snorted.
"Dude, listen to me carefully, there are no decent pop songs out there. They all sound the same and they all sound like rubbish," he said.
"Whatever, I say we put it to a vote," Sam said, "I say pop is better."

When The Doctor first met Sarah Jane in his Third regeneration, he thought she was absolutely perfect in every way.
From the way she smiled to the way she helped him, just thinking of the budding journalist made both his hearts flutter with utter contentment.
Right now, The Doctor was in his Eleventh regeneration and currently dreaming of his Sarah Jane.
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face
The Doctor sighed in his sleep, dreaming of Sarah Jane being in his arms, forever, just her and him, the way it should have been.
I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
This wasn't the first time he'd dreamt about Sarah, he has sometimes dreamt about her when he least expected it.

John had been helping Sherlock with his physical therapy after the short fall from a second-story balcony which had dislocated his shoulder. The joint had healed very well, and was almost entirely functional again, the stubborn detective urging it forward in its recovery perhaps a little too quickly. John was keen to slow him down whenever he winced at the residual pain or stiffness.
As a final exercise, John had dragged Sherlock back to the university swimming pool, this time during hours of operation. The water-based strain would do the joint good, and John looked forward to the swim. In addition to the lifeguard, there was only one other person in the pool, an elderly fellow who swam steady laps back and forth and minded his own business.
John waited in the shallow end for Sherlock to come out of the locker room and join him, lazily treading water in his swim trunks, diving under to wet his hair as he kept his shoulders beneath the surface out of a slight sense of modesty. The water

John's brows drew together as he looked at the candle in its kitschy Chianti bottle holder. "And this is romantic how?" he enquired of his potential flatmate acidly.
Sherlock's gaze flicked away from the window to rest upon John. "Oh? Well, Angelo has old-fashioned ideas. I'm given to understand that a candle is meant to create an appropriate atmosphere, as well as soften the features of the potential inamorato."
John pursed his lips slightly and folded his hands on the table. Sherlock watched in puzzlement, then his features smoothed in understanding. "You are uncomfortable about being seen as my date. I'll have Angelo -"
"No," John interjected. "No. It's all right. I'm fine. Though of course, this isn't a date. Is it?" His tone was cordial.
Sherlock watched him carefully. John's eyes were hard to read in the flicker of the flame, his entire demeanour open and interested. The murderer, Sherlock decided, could wait. Chances were against the serial killer showing up, and t

"What was he even thinking?" I complained. Babette and I were patching up various family members' clothes and armor in the main room. For some strange reason, assassins' clothes tended to get lots of tears and bloodstains in them. Normally I wouldn't be doing chores on a holiday, but this was no typical day and I needed to do something with my hands.
After my outburst with Cicero, I had come back to Sanctuary and barricaded myself in my room. Then I had crawled into my bed and buried myself in my sleeping furs. I've done this ever since I was a little girl; whenever I get angry I would seclude myself until I calmed down. I always think that I'm going to shut myself away for a few hours, but only minutes after wrapping my blanket around me I would be restless and want to go back out again. I would force myself to stay in the darkness until I calmed down. It's very stupid and childish, but it always helped settle me.

If anyone could arrange an event, it was Mycroft Holmes.
For a small, quaint and cozy wedding, it was extravagant. It was held in a local pavilion, and only a small handful of guests were in attendance, including Harry, who promised John she wouldn't be too much of a handful, and even Donovan and Anderson, who were much more fancy to John than Sherlock, but would never bring such a thing up given the circumstances. Mycroft escorted Mary up the aisle, an action of sentiment John never imagined he was capable of performing, let alone willing to do. The ceremony was brief, but heartfelt, and wonderful.
Mary's niece and nephew were the ring bearer and flower girl, and Mrs. Hudson could be heard remarking on how absolutely adorable they were. John wore a well-tailored tuxedo, while Mary wore something akin to a dre

"Just breath, Sherlock." he repeated for the fifth or sixth time that afternoon. Finally Sherlock seemed to respond as he turned his body over to look at John, the red from his eyes finally gone and replaced with a cold, calculating stare.
"Sherlock?" John asked warily not knowing why that hard gaze was aimed at him. Sherlock's eyes softened momentarily as he shook his head slightly and then he closed his eyes, bringing his fingers to his lips.

Anche quella sera pioveva.
Grosse nuvole si erano addensate due giorni prima, verso mezzogiorno, e da allora lo scroscio d’acqua non aveva smesso di battere sulle case.
Le strade erano tristi e vuote, nessuno aveva voglia di uscire con quel tempaccio, erano tutti rinchiusi in casa o in un pub, per rallegrarsi e scaldarsi in compagnia.
Bé, non proprio tutti.
Nelle cantine di una delle case più antiche della città un’ombra si muoveva lentamente, sola e infreddolita, facendo tintinnare lievemente le catene che la tenevano legata.
Dopo molti giri a vuoto della cantina, l’ombra finalmente si sedette in un angolo, quello più lontano dalla finestrella sbarrata che dava sulla strada.
Odiava quella finestrella.
Gli dava una visione del mondo esterno che, seppur ristretta, lo faceva stare male, perché lui, di un maschio si trattava, rinchiuso in quella cantina, non sarebbe mai potuto uscire.

Sherlock and I were walking down a back alley in London. After a thrilling chase of a criminal - we caught him I waved for a taxi but Sherlock shook his head.
"The air seems to be nice out for a short ride home don't you think John? Why don't we walk?" He suggested. Why down dark deserted alleys, I'm unsure. One thing that I am sure of though, you can actually get a decent view of the stars from here. Maybe it's because it's so dark.
I shoved my hands into my pockets as a slight chill set in. As I was walking I couldn't help but keep gazing up at the sky. The night was clear and I could make out all sorts of familiar constellations.
There was a particular star I was mesmerised by; as I was walking I couldn't stop staring at it. It was the brightest star among the others; maybe it could be a satellite. No, it was too pretty to be a satellite. It defiantly had to be a star. Maybe there were little aliens on it waving down at me and I just couldn't see them because I thought that i

Mycroft looked up over the pages of his textbook, eyeing his little brother curiously. "Of course he is." He said naturally, as anyone would to a child like Sherlock. Well, maybe not 'like Sherlock', but any child. This was supposed to be the age where children embraced Santa with open arms, finally understanding the lore behind the presents under the tree every Christmas.
Sherlock crossed his arms, which took a bit of wiggling, seeing as he had a wooden sword in one hand. In fact, he was in his pirate garb, including a blue bandanna making a feeble attempt to hold back his wild black curls, a white button-up collared shirt that was too large for him (it had been Mycroft's, once), and poofy brown pants that billowed out before scrunching back in with elastic around mid-calf.
"No he isn't." Sherlock announced stubbornly.
"Whatever you say. Just don't tell father and mother or they'll think I told you," Mycroft sighed, going back to his homework.

It was too much for him. He couldn't take it. The silence. There was nothing. The shock of the sound that he'd heard for most of his life being ripped from his skull was enough to drive him mad all over again. He panicked. So did I. It was terrifying. I had no choice. I knocked him unconscious.
Carrying the Master back to the Tardis, I only hoped he would be calmer when he awoke. Hopefully he would recognize where he was when that happened. I laid him down in one of the bedrooms and left him there in peace.

His boots thudded with a clang-clang as he trudged across the metal floor. For a moment I just looked at him and him at me. We said nothing.

Mycroft stepped out of the car and headed in to the meeting he'd been looking forward to all week long, giving a little whistle as he twirled his umbrella in one hand. Only when he was alone, or sometimes with Anthea, did he ever let loose and show a bit of the emotions brewing under the thick layer of ice he held as his well-known facade. Those who were closest to him could sometimes read below it, if they were observant enough to pay mind to his umbrella. The grip he had on it could occasionally belie his state of being; a tight grip at the crook of the curve was worry or impatience, a loose trail along the handle with the fingertips was relaxation or accomplishment.
Mycroft had taken to carrying an umbrella with him when he was a small boy, dressed in the smart spats that Mummy had tucked him into. He'd been ever so eager to keep her pleased, and the umbrella was an easy precaution to keep his clothes (and appearance) prim and proper. Not every day in England may have been rainy, bu

Mrs. Hudson was pleased to see John making an attempt to move on with his life. He'd continued on at the surgery and gotten promoted, and had met a nice girl named Mary. The two got on fabulously, and it seemed to take John's mind off the gaping hole left in his life after Sherlock.
The maternal little old lady could see that John still thought often about his missing friend, and had slowly given up hope that the death had been somehow an elaborate hoax. The poor doctor's limp had returned in full, but he still enjoyed an occasional night out with Mary. It was a couple months in, however, when Mrs. Hudson heard shouting; a heated argument was going on between the two budding lovers, and the few words she could make out seemed to be "Sherlock" and "Never good enough" and "Don't understand."
Loud footsteps resounded down the stairs, clacking with the pointed heel of a woman's shoes as the front door out to the street slammed shut.
