At the sound of her husband's voice, Eileen let out a small sigh, before hurrying down rickety stairs, to see what was the matter in the kitchen. Leaning against the doorframe, Eileen asked, "What now?"
Looking up from the television he was fiddling with, Tobias said, "Why doesn't the tele work?"
He'd interrupted her work for this? Rolling her eyes, "Well, is it plugged in?" Even though Eileen didn't know much about Muggle devises, she knew enough to know that most of them required electricity.
With a scowl, "Of course it is," Tobias said, indignantly. "Do you think I'm an idiot?"
Tobias glared at his smirking wife before returning to the television. He fiddled with the knobs a little, "It's not doing anything." He pounded the top of the television. "Stupid piece of junk."
"Did you really call me down here to watch you hit that box?" Eileen wouldn't put it past him.
Standing up, Tobias ran his fingers through his hair, and said sheepishly, "I was wondering if you

Caitlin Black's Garden
Doolin, County Clare Ireland
Dr. Paulo Pereira heard the door to his shed open and shut loudly as he sat on his leather couch therein, sipping his tumbler of Tullamore Dew on the rocks and puffing lazily on his cigarette. He had built himself what he called his 'Refúgio' a shack fitted with all the masculine comforts a man needed for moments of peace and tranquility that was all his own nestled in a tight corner of his fiancée's garden. He didn't need to turn around and look to know who had barged in and plunged into the empty space next to him.
His brother-in-law, Severus Snape or so at least he will officially be in little over a month when Paulo marries Severus' wife, Evelyn's sister, Caitlin Black who had become his best friend since they met over two years previously, needed no invitation to O Refúgio. He had personally assisted Paulo in fixing and furnishing it since they both agreed that the Bl

On the sweet embrace of love,
Ipanema,little princess of the sea
with its crystal waters,
and its white sands
In June, love is in the air
Our Lady of Copacabana,
protect us from our impure wills
and guard everyone safely
Lovers in Brazil
hugging and kissing like the Bossa Nova beat,
that only here can be found
Blessed by the Savior
Lovers fervency love

Severus didn´t want a child.
And yet...here it was...
Severus approached the cradle with feather light footsteps. It was a simple but elegant piece of furniture, made out of heavy and dark oak wood...an heirloom of Evelyn´s family, that her mother had insisted on giving them. A wealth of delicate white and blue covers and a veil of rich Irish lace protected it´s tiny occupant from the late October chill.
His long fingers drew back the covers to reveal the child to his sleep deprived eyes. A child who was no more than an hour old. A child that wasn´t expected. A mistake that shouldn´t have happened, as far as his father had been concerned.
He didn´t want a child...
Most people take parental instinct for granted...They imagine it´s only natural for parents to love their children. It just happened...But Severus knew better...In fact he knew from experience that it just wasn´t that simple...Nowhere near that simple...

SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW. I will be going by what would happen IF certain things didn't happen in the story. The Obsession Arc is weird because it's very different from the other ones; Kyousuke usually dies at the end, not in the beginning, and Red gets to meet Hiroto. I'll be going by those rules, not by the Obsession Arc rules.
Name: Kyousuke Kagisawa
Birth date: May 2nd
Height: Five feet and 10 inches or 178 centimeters.
Weight: 152 pounds or 69 kilograms.
Theme song: Miss Murder by A.F.I.
Romantic Interest(s): Misaki Yoriyaki, humorously Hiroto Kagisawa
Weapon(s) of choice: Knife
Before Kyousuke's parents had him, his family moved to Tokyo. He was raised there, seeing most of his other family very little and going to extremely elitist schools. He seemed to be the same as his three older brothers, up until his last year of elementary school.
That year, he got a depression disorder and started cutting himself. He most likely had schizophr

Im going to bed, guys Hermione said. Yeah, me too, Im exhausted Harry answered.
Ron looked up to them and wished them good night. He stayed in the living room.
With his chin resting on his knees he thought deeply. He didnt know what to do. This really wasnt the right time for telling Hermione about his feelings for her. But he couldnt stand it any longer. He was longing to hold her in his arms and to never let her go again. About an hour after Harry and Hermione went to bed, Ron went upstairs too.
Harry was lying on the ground, Hermione on an old couch. Between them was just enough space for him to sleep. Ron got in his sleeping bag and sighed deeply. He stared into the darkness.
After about 10 minutes he got out of his sleeping bag again and stood

What fresh hell was this?
As hard she she tried, nothing came to mind of the previous night's ventures. It was all a fog half way through the walk home. She could remember every detail up until passing by the pounding bass and smoke filled air outside of the back doors nightclub on her usual short-cut home from her dead end job. It was dark, but upon thought, darkness was not much of a memory. And the harder she tried, the more scattered the real memories became. It was all very confusing, and since she was not one to indulge in the drink, nothing about the situation felt right.
It sounded paranoid, and quite frankly, like a pathetic excuse for whatever it w

Halt ThinksThe stars seemed unusually bright that night, he noticed. Why did they deserve to shine light and radiate joy? Why couldn't they be as dark and dim as the rest of the land?Halt Thinks7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Halt sighed. He couldn't remember a time when he'd felt so strange. Normally, by now, he'd either be asleep or yelling for Will to shut…
That was it- why he felt so strange.
Will was gone.
True, he'd lived alone in the forest for years. It should have been no problem ignoring his emotions, or even getting to sleep. But there was emptiness where Will used to be. The smallest things seemed to have a huge hole in them- Waking up, taking walks, practicing, even going to bed. All seemed to isolate him and force him to realize that he was alone in the world, and probably always would be.
He glared at the sky. The stars winked at him, bright and smiley. Was that even a word?
"Give him back," Halt snarled out loud. His voice cracked and his voice rose. "What did I do to deserve this?!?"
The stars didn't answer.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy, Scotland
Minerva MacGonagall´s office
"Your neighbour you say..." Minerva mumbled, deep in thought.
"I know, it sounds preposterous..."
They sat silently facing each other for a few seconds, as the fire gently burned, colouring Minerva´s office in soft shades of gold and orange. Severus sunk down in his chair, enjoying the familiarity of being back at Hogwarts even if momentarily. For good or bad Hogwarts was the closest thing to home he had, maybe even more so than his childhood home in Spinner´s End. Spinner´s End was a retreat, a place filled with memories and ghosts he came back to whenever life was too heavy to bear. Hogwarts, however was the place where his life had actually taken it´s course. Spinner´s End was dream and reverie, Hogwarts was reality, blunt and crude. Coming back was like revisiting what made him into what he was, and as much as he didn´t like what he

I quickly stood up. Mr. Hurley, I gulped.
Mr. Beckett wants you in his office, the redhead said brusquely. Right away.
Yes, sir, I said nervously. He nodded crisply and strode away. As soon as he was out of sight, I sank slowly back into my chair.

But you won't believe what happened.
I swear I nearly died.
After sixty pounds of homework
And fifteen hours of chores,
I fell into my iron bed.
It must have been 'round four.
My mother woke me up at dawn
With nothing much to say
Except that I'd failed to complete
Some stuff the previous day.

Clean the cat box! Sweep the pool!
And above all else, O Daughter mine,
Don't you dare be late for school!"
Countless hours passed in toil.
My hands, they nearly bled.
My aching back, my calloused feet…
I nearly passed out dead.
When I took a shower,
The water wasn't hot.
Ice shot from the spicket.
Now that was quite a shock.
I opened up my dresser,
Thinking clothes there would be plenty.
Imagine my intense surprise
When CRAP! I found it empty.
So this necessitated
I wash a load of laundry.
But naught that happened could compare
To my future, SUPER quandaries.

Cello ChildCello Child2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
It was the summer when Abigail West turned sixteen. Her parents had just divorced and she moved down south with her mother, since her mother had a job promotion down there. Abigail was a very lively person once you got to know her: charismatic, witty, and smart, but she was very shy. Which was to be expected since she had previously gone to a very small private school all her school career. She had never really been a new kid before and she had gone to school with the same people since she was in Elementary. So she was very nervous about starting her Junior year in a public school. Her private school was not all that bad though, It taught her many different instruments, she knew how to play the piano (very little), the clarinet (not spectacular but she could play), and her new pet project was the cello. She had always loved the sound of a cello. The last year at camp they had had a man from a very musical Christian family play a special with the cello and it abs
Incant and Deduct Part 8John was pretty excited about Christmas for once. Usually Christmas meant boring family occasions, Harry throwing a tantrum and eating too much. It was probably because his birthday was fairly close to Christmas anyway; he just couldn't get very excited. This year was different. This year the Triwizard Tournament meant he'd been able to meet up with his friends from Durmstrang (the ones on the Quidditch team and a few of the boys he'd met in the summer dragon training in Romania.) There was the prospect of watching the Triwizard tournament itself in the New Year. The school had decided that they would postpone it till January in response to the death of Carl Powers. And of course there was the Yule Ball. He was looking forward to an enjoyable occasion after the miserable business earlier on in the term, and it was nice to have an excuse to dance with Sarah.Incant and Deduct Part 83 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The girl watched as the dancing tongues of fire cast eerie shadows on the frozen ground. She stood at the edge of the Scotti camp, clothed from head to toe in dark gray and brown, hand resting on the well-polished hilt of her knife. She pulled the blade from its smooth leather scabbard and dropped to one knee. The girl moved around the edges of the clearing, taking care to stay unnoticed. With an expression of disgust on her face, she crept past a drunken guard, who was slumped on the ground. Still the girl was silent. She crouched before an enormous tree, its bare branches rustling dismally in the wind. The girl began to climb. She grabbed a branch and hoisted herself up with a surprising amount of strength. Perched there like a bird, she listened carefully to her father and his advisors, the figures in the tent underneath her. The young eavesdropper was anxious to hear the Scotti battle plans.
The girl could hear another voice, more distant and harsh, from the east. "Attack!

The suit would have looked great with the maroon tie I'm wearing. Why that's my first thought, I have no idea. Should I give him my tie?
