His Butler, Absurd
The air outside was hot, but dry. A cool breeze swept mercifully through the trees, making the afternoon heat bearable--and even pleasant. Even the Phantomhive was enjoying the draft enough that he had opened the large bay window behind his desk in the study as he worked on his lessons. The curtains billowed and fluttered noisily, but the cracking of the fabric ble

Every night he sat his glasses on his bedside table, and every morning he put them on first thing. It wasn't truly that he needed them, but it was better to be able to see what he wanted and ignore what he didn't. This morning had been different though. It was darker than usual when he woke up, but he figured it would be a waste to go back to sleep as he would have to be up in another thirty minutes anyways. Blind due to the darkness, Reo fumbled around for his glasses. With a small thump he heard something hit the floor.
'Geez,' he thought, 'why do these things always happen to me?' He leaped off the bed, prepared to search a bit more until he found them, when he was met with an unpleasant cracking sound.
'Oh please,' he prayed silently, 'don't let those be my glasses!' All hope was in vain.

They didn't even speak as they walked through the darkness back to Roy's apartment. A few times she looked up at him and tried to touch his hand, but he kept looking straight and lightly shrugged her away.
She wondered if he was mad at her she stuck to the plan they came up with if they were ever followed, and she never even told the boy anything. There was no reason to be angry with her, but the way he stared at nothing in front of them and was completely silent and abrasive toward her told a different story.
He didn't look in her eyes when he opened the door to his apartment and waited for her to walk in, but as soon as he stepped in after her, he slammed the door behind himself and stomped into his room where he threw a suitcase onto his bed and began to violently toss his clothes in it.
"Sir " she whispered almost to quiet for him to hear, still standing by the door. Was he leaving her? Why?

Anything for You part 14As soon as Mustang came home from the office (which was MUCH earlier than usual-about five o'clock in the afternoon instead of nine or ten) Riza had already packed their bags full of clothes, and other necessities for the long road trip. She wasn't looking forward to being in the car for a long period of time, especially on a bumpy road. Being on smooth roads for any short time span already made her head spin, and a queasy feeling arise in her stomach, but she knew that the destination would be worth it.

Juudai told me about your walls, so I wanted to come see what they looked like, said Fubuki contentedly, as if randomly turning up in someones room without their permission was nothing outside of the ordinary for him. In the back of Misawas mind a voice said it probably wasnt anything outside of the ordinary for him.
And I was just here to make sure he didnt cause any bother, Ryo said. Who at least had the dignity to sound as he felt this small-scale breaking and entering was wrong.
Yes, well now youve seen them you can get out! Misawa went on, pointing them both to the door.
Ignoring him completely, Fubuki got up from the bed and walked over to one of the walls for a closer inspection.

Love alive, constantly in my mind.
I love the way your brown eyes shine,
When you look straight into mine.
I'm gonna keep my pulses in line
But you have me wrapped around your little finger, like a vine
A vine of thread, said to never forget me.
Brain buzzing like a busy bee
I see you for what you're meant to be.
Unlocked hearts with silver and gold keys,
Woven moments like a priceless weave.
My heart races like a rapid stream
But your own heart has re-opened my dreams...
For this there is no price, I'm free.
All your love is what I need, bring to me your fears.
We'll bury them away in time,
For I am yours and you are mine.
DepressionDepression... what a wimp of a word. Is there a single word in the world that can do justice to describe the hurricane raging throughout the victims head? How can you explain it to someone? A disease powerful enough to stain your sleeves red and your mind black. Powerful enough to make you want to crawl into a closet and shut out the entire world. Powerful enough to make you want to jump off a bridge. How do you explain that to someone? It's something you can never really understand until you experience it. But you smile anyways. When people ask you how you are, you say just tired. And you are. You're tired of feeling so alone. Tired of being a prisoner of your own mind. But it's too hard to explain. And you're afraid.

I turn to look at her, give her a withering look, and turn away. I lift and relax my shoulder blades, settling my jacket more snugly about me. The raindrops that cling to the water-resistant fabric scatter with the movement and, for a moment, I'm surrounded by a silvery halo. Then the little droplets fall and burst against the pavement at my feet, and the moment's gone.
There's an umbrella in my pack, of course. I should use it, probably. It's an old wives' tale that getting cold and wet will make you sick, but I'd never been able to convince her of that. She was always stubborn that way.
She frowns disapprovingly now. "I'm not impressed by this, you know. I don't know what you think you're doing, but we both know you should get inside,"
I look at the ground for a second. The rain has plastered my hair to my face and neck, and when I look up, she reaches out to peel an errant curl from where it's settled

"Uhhh...yeah." Gobber scratched at his head, wondering if the smallish dragons would stay outside, or attempt to follow Hiccup into the smithy. He didn't have to wonder for long, most of the Terrors crawling up into the roof beams, only a few vying to stay below with Hiccup, twining around his feet and mewling for attention.
"Why are they following ye?"
"I wish I knew. I keep waking up with half eaten things on my pillow."
"Mice, fish heads, bird wings."
"Sounds like ye might have a way with Terrors." Gobber smirked at his apprentice who looked disturbed by the information.

With a strong gentle touch, he reached out and brushed away a strand of hair that fell across her eye so he could look at her more clearly. A moan escaped her throat at his touch, and he snapped his hand back, thinking he woke her, but she just squirmed a bit and rolled away from the window so she was facing toward him, her eyes still closed and moving under her eyelids.
He figured she was dreaming about something beautiful, because he watched as a sleepy grin grew on her lips and she moaned again, a happy moan.

Riza wasn't feeling very well that day, but she knew she had to be professional at all times. Her heels clicked as she walked down the hall to the Fuhrer's office, and her stomach ached from throwing up twice that morning. Black Haiatai stared at her crooked headed and worried as she arched her back and hurled everything she had eaten the night before into her toilet. He even strutted over both times and lay on the bathroom floor with her when she rested her head on the toilet seat and gently he licked at her thighs. After a while she scratched his head as a thanks, and vowed that he would be the only man in her life because he was the only one who knew how to treat a woman the right way.
Her face was white, hands clammy, and she figured she should have been in bed or resting instead of working right now, but she also knew she had to be there for Mustang.

Since her furry four legged loyal companion had discovered Logan spying and sent him running, the king of Albion thought it was best to drown out his anger and frustration in some wine. To bad it was still much to early in the day for him to be drinking Jasper reminded him.
"I'm sorry your majesty but it would be unbecoming of you to be drinking at this hour." Jasper said to him as the old butler caught Logan in the kitchens sneaking a drink.
Logan scowled at the old man and wanted to shout, 'If you had just seen what I'd seen you'd be drinking too!' But he held his tongue. He didn't want Jasper inquiring as to just why Logan was watching his sister and her pathetic boyfriend having sex through a keyhole.

A/N: I'm actually not sure how I feel about this chapter, but it ought to answer a lot of questions I've brought up about Aang's history. I'm sure I'll poke a bit more into it in the future, but I felt with Aang's backstory it'd be better to show brief scenes over a period of time - to show rather than tell, and let you guys connect a lot of the dots. I guess my disappointment with myself is that Jane's backstory chapter was more solid and concise, whereas this one hops around a lot. Oh, well. Hopefully this chapter turned out OK. The next chapter will also be very Aang-centric, too. Between this chapter and the next, we're looking at possibly the most directly referential chapters to the show itself in the whole story.

Le char doré de Phébus noircit lentement
Coule une larme, s'éclipse un adieu haï.
Les silhouettes se fadent, fantômes blancs,
Et me volent un passé de bonheur tant chéri.
Les tourments m'enveloppent d'une robe grise
Lorsque je vois cet ultime visage aimé.
Je souris, un mensonge doux comme la brise
Le sable s'écoule, c'est le moment dernier.
Mes yeux s'attardent sur ce visage serein
Craignant l'oubli, j'apprends les détails un à un
Mais l'autre contrée m'attend, c'est ma destinée.
Orphée, réveille-moi du réel cauchemar
Qui m'attriste et me lasse. De moi, il s'empare
Hélas! Le désert n'y est point imaginé.
Before The Voyage
Phoebus's golden chariot slowly darkens,
As I weep away the traces of a hated farewell.
Silhouettes start to fade, like white ghosts,
Stealing cherished memories of happiness
Torments wrap me in a gray dress

"So, you're actually out training today?" Bianca asked with a horribly fake shocked expression. I noticed Cheren kick her from under the table.
I pursed my lips and looked down at my fries. I remained silent, feeling a slight bit awkward and ashamed. It's no secret I haven't trained as often since he left, certainly not as much as I should be. Cheren and Bianca's Pokémon look amazingly fit, while my team isn't in top condition, although I can be the only one of my friends to say that I defeated Alder, the Champion (which Cheren held in high regard. Bianca not so much.)
