We think we're strong.
We think we're immortal.
We are not.
Today, Friday, February 10, I learned that a close friend of mine from Middle School killed himself. He jumped from the third story of my school to his immediate death. I went to lunch, like any other day and saw a massive crowd in my usual hang-out area.
"Another fight, jeez," I muttered as I passed through the crowd. As I progressed, another friend of mine came out in tears, obviously having seen the body. She informed me of the jump, but was unaware of who he was.
I turned around, to avoid seeing the body. Despite my physical desire to avoid it, some little part of me thought I should see it. I thought I needed to see it. That it was important I see this. I thought to myself "Well, what happened? I mean what REALLY happened?" I went to Walgreens to take my mind off it.
Coming back to school with a Coke and a box of "sweethearts" (those chalky crap valentine's candies sold this time of ye

Tacking on wings months too late; our legs didn't break -
Fate gave me a flower; snowflakes and granite
by any other name.
I am home.
Your eyes of forests, branching away.
Defeathered, dust settling;
if you don't see it, you can never walk away.
I Am HetaliaI am Russia,I Am Hetalia1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
walking through the storm
with heavy steps, around me
it's a field of ice and snow.
The wind howls like a wolf,
a wolf as lonely as me,
Winter's looking for victims
but I'll leave it hungry.
You're not enough to kill me.
I am Hungary,
searching for a peaceful home,
How can you live with someone
and still feel so alone?
Why is it that the one you love
is your greatest enemy?
I am beaten whenever
I try to become free.
There's no way out.
I am Germany,
sitting in my dark room,
mourning the long lost,
the one who left me alone.
Don't worry so much, Italy,
soon I'll be fine,
I'll come and see you again,
just give me some time.
Why did you have to go?
I am Romano,
you might as well shut up.
You make no sense, so get lost,
you make me want to throw up.
I look at myself and I see
someone's who's not meant to be,
I could have died so many times.
Why do you even keep me alive?
I'm terrible to you.
I am Canada,
what would happen
if I became noticed.

Cold - MormorIt was freezing. The heater was broken and there was a horrible draft. They were in the dead of winter and a hail storm was raging outside, the tiny balls of ice beating at the window violently. It was surprising that the glass didn't shatter altogether.Cold - Mormor3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Jim sat on the couch with Sebastian's hoodie and a blanket wrapped around his small figure. He was tempted to go downstairs and yell at someone about it, but he didn't want to move from his warm cocoon he created around himself. It was too cold to even think about moving. He didn't dare let his fuzzy-sock-covered feet touch the icy ground.
He silently urged Sebastian to come back to their flat faster. He was out on a job Jim gave him earlier, no doubt out there in the freezing mess that people called the weather. Jim smiled slightly at the thought. That Sebastian would sit out there in the swirling flurry of ice, unseen and waiting for the perfect time to shoot, all for him.
It was at that time that Sebastian decided to walk into the f

When the darkness comes
When the shadows return
Six lights will awake
Guided by their friendship
With the power of
Harmony within them
Together they will
Bring an end to evil
Honesty will fight against any lies
Kindness will aid those overwhelmed by anger
Laughter will wither all sadness away
Generosity will help those in need
Loyalty will strike bravery into the hearts
Magic will then make everything complete!
Rise forth once more
With the sun and moon guiding their way
They will always prevail!
You'll find your way!
Lift us through
In souls and hearts!

When the shadows return
Six lights will awake
Guided by their friendship
With the power of
Harmony within them
Together they will
Bring an end to evil!
Honesty will help stand us firm as mountains
New Anniversary"Hey, Castiel, look at this," Gabriel called to his brother over his shoulder. He had stolen Sam's laptop while the hunter was out with Dean on a food run. Cas walked up to Gabriel curiously and peered over his shoulder at the article the archangel was reading.New Anniversary3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"National Kissing Day?" Cas said, his head tilting. "What is the point of this?"
"Well, it gives you an excuse to kiss Dean senseless," Gabriel chuckled. "Though I never need one to kiss Sammy." Cas's eyes flicked over the article, reading quickly. A smile curved his lips and Gabriel knew he had scored a point. He closed the laptop and stood to stretch.
"So, that mind of yours planning madly?" Gabriel asked, smirking at Cas. The younger angel nodded, a light in his eyes. Without warning, Cas turned on his heel and rushed upstairs, stomping loudly in his haste. Gabriel chuckled again and wandered into the kitchen. He had already planned out exactly how he was going to seduce Sam today, having found out a few days ago about the up

He could feel the softness of the sheet, and duvet cover. It was, of course, thick just how he liked it. Luxurious. Tantalisingly fluffy. He could feel the slight chill in the air around his face, as there always was in London, and the contrast of that with the warmth under the covers. He could feel the clothes he was wearing: just a pair of boxers with a plain t-shirt. And, if he stretched his hand, or foot, or body a little way to the right, he could feel the man lying next to him. Comfortingly close, so that if Jim ever felt disorientated or worried, he could just reach out and he'd be there. Looking after him and watching over him, even in his sleep.

A giggly ball of feathered energy zoomed around the bunker, zapping in and out of rooms to end up on either a shelf or a table. Sam and Dean Winchester were running around uselessly, flapping their arms, trying to grab their infant Castiel. In case you're wondering... It was a hunt. Something went wrong. This was only temporary.
Dean plopped onto the couch, pure exhaustion etched onto his face. Sam was still running after the elusive baby angel. As Dean sat there, he wondered what the hell happened to Cas that turned him from that to a stoic, emotionless angel of the Lord.
Meanwhile, Sam thought he had Cas trapped in a corner of the kitchen. But the toddler was still smiling away. Sam took cautious movements closer to Cas and he wrapped his hands around him finally, but the angel decided to teleport just then. Sam was in the kitchen one moment, and then standing precariously on a stair railing on the upp
Let That Be As It May [MorMor]That wasn’t supposed to happen. It should have been a not friendly but still peaceful business meeting, not an exchange of potentially lethal shots. But when you worked for James Moriarty you could never be sure of what was waiting ahead for you. For that reason, and for many others he had learnt during the years spent at the madman’s side, Sebastian Moran was always ready. For what, he didn’t know, but still prepared pretty much for everything. And they had to thank his quick reflexes if the people with a bullet in the skull were some of their client’s men and not them.Let That Be As It May [MorMor]1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This

And then, Dance Dance by Fall Out Boy started to play on the radio in the background in the bar and Sebastian jumped up excitedly, nearly losing his footing. "Oh shit, I love this song!" He cried to the rest of the drunk people in the bar and Jim, who was only a little tipsy and the radio that was only background music earlier got cranked up. Sebastian started singing along with the song just as they hit the chorus, nearly butchering the song in his drunken state.
He even attempted to get on a table and start dancing, but soon found out that gravity decided that the ground was a much better place to be right then. He bobbed his head to the music and danced around on the floor

It was a bitter and frosty January morning in Risembool. The little village hardly ever got snow, but frost and freezing fogs were common and today was located in the middle of one of the longest cold snaps in over a decade. Icicles hung from the eaves of the houses and weighed down the branches of the naked deciduous trees while fields and lawns were coated in a crisp layer of white.
The outside may have been freezing, but inside was warm and none more so than the old farmhouse on the hill. A friendly fire crackled merrily in the fireplace as a small family and their friends celebrated a special event, clustered around the large oak kitchen table. There were five people in total, not including a large dog hampered with an automail front leg which lay curled up before the fire, enjoying the heat. Its not every day a boy turns ten, but today was the day that Edward Elric finally entered double figures.

A tiny rustling started to pull him out of his delicious nightmares. The curtains were moving. He grumbled and flipped onto his other side, his eyes unfocused as he managed to open his eyelids.
"Whasssssthifss " he mumbled.
He was suddenly blasted with the full force of London sunlight, rare as it was, when the curtains were unceremoniously ripped open. Jim yelped, gathering his covers around his head and quickly drawing a knife from under his goose-feather pillow. "What the hell?!"
A tall man loomed, casting a long shadow across the king-sized bed. Jim was suddenly assaulted by what appeared to be a young man's body, oozing blood. "WHAT THE HELL?!" Jim screame

Weather Beaten - EnvyxPride-Ed"...Envy-sama?"Weather Beaten - EnvyxPride-Ed8 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I turn at the sound of my name, not surprised to see what was left of the Chibi-san.
Pride's eyes never show emotion. They're just blank gold orbs inside human-based sockets. He shuffles his feet just a bit, hardly noticeable comtemplation on his erased face.
The question would have been simple if it were coming from someone else instead of this half-assed homunculus who hadn't had taken in any red stones. Hohenheim claimed his "son" didn't need them, so he used some weird voodoo to do something which resulted in the red marks on his body and his current state of mind. Ha. He just wanted to have some replica of Edward running around, with his pretty gold eyes and flowing blonde hair instead of the cat-like violet eyes and dark hair that all homunculi possessed (okay, Sloth was an exception; the Trisha Elric thing was just too good to pass up in teasing the Chibi-san).
But, the question had been asked, therefore requiring me to answer it.

about quiting the military?
Giving up silly stuff, like alchemy,
And staying in Resembool with me?
You're strong for being shorter
Than a rabbit's tail
You can help me when I get

It'd be nice to have someone
Smaller than me that I can shove.
Just kidding! But I do want you to stay
What do you say sweetie-love?

Ask a sparrow not to fly?!
An Alchemist is just what I am!
Give it up and I would die.
I don't want auto-mail forever
Or give up on Al in anyway

So I can never stay.

Soldiers end up 6 feet underground!

Besides, Alchemy made Mom proud.

You're too happy where you are right now
You could only hold me back
I need someone who can travel to world's edges

Roy sat on the edge of the bed holding his head in his hands, wearing his 'modified' uniform; he'd had to turn up the trouser legs several times, tighten his belt (alot) and his jacket had swamped him, so he'd removed it so was wearing a white tank top instead

Stark mansion was never this quiet. There was always noise. Whether it was the radio cranked up as loud as it could go, or the sounds of Tony trying, and failing again, to make something in the kitchen, or the very loud bangs and crashes coming from his garage as he worked out a few new kinks in the armour. There was always noise of some kind.
Tony could not stand silence.
Silence meant rejection and it unnerved Tony. He hated it and always tried to fill it up in whatever way he could. He'd babble on and on about whatever new technological development he'd made or the weather whatever first popped into his head and he'd launch into a very long spiel about it.
