Think about it, Al! Ed insisted. Theres so much evidence!
My name, for starters. Ed flopped back on the grassy hill. Edward isnt exactly a girls name.
I thought the only reason your name is Edward is because Dad was crazy.
So?! Ed challenged. Maybe he knew I was supposed to be a boy. I mean, your name is Ali and he wasnt any less crazy. Obviously youre meant to be a girl!
My names only Ali because Mom fought with him when I was born. She said she didnt want two daughters with boys names. Didnt he originally want to name me Alphonse?

"Finally out of your coma are you?" Sebastian Moran said nonchalantly, not turning to face his boss, who was standing in the doorway, looking much more ruffled than his normal Westwood look. He was wearing a pair of loose sweatpants and a wife-beater, a purple silk dressing gown half hanging off of him.
"Yes mum, I'm fine thank you." Jim said mockingly, walking over to the fridge and pulling out a carton of orange juice, drinking straight from the container. He leaned against the counter, watching the sniper as he continued to work with a creamy substance in the bowl in front of him. He stared at it, as though it was some foreign substance that was going to come to life and attack them both.
Seb noticed Jim's eyes on him and glanced over, not stopping his use of the metal whisk he'd been employing. He snorted. "It's not going to bite you you know."

Observe, not ControlObserve the world aroundObserve, not Control4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
But do not try to control it
You cannot control what has its own pace
You can only observe and change within
Observe the mindless people
Understand their actions and thoughts
Observe the clouds in their dance
Observe your pain and learn from it
With plain observation comes pure knowledge
Of things how they are without your judgment
Effort to control gives an illusion that you change
The world that is unchangeable and out of reach
Give in to the truths you see
Without prejudice know what's real
Without fear read the mind of god
And see yourself in his face

Did I ask for your 'flattering' insults
Or if I wanted to know my exact size?
Never, so what are you thinking of
To say 'shorty' right in my face?
Call me small one more time
And you shall feel my wrath.
Listen to my words,
Long life won't be in for you anymore.
Maybe I shouldn't have started this.
Especially since I'm running out of ideas.
Al... tell me again... why am I doing this?
So I'll repeat this only once
Hope you'll understand it this time.
Or I'll have to beat some sense into you.
Remember from now on
That by calling me 'shorty',
You've signed your own death penalty.

Edward Elric the Fullmetal Alchemist shifted in bed as he dreamed a nightmare... He dreamed about an armor again. An empty armor with the voice of a child calling him from somewhere very far... and Edward couldn't reach him... he tried as strong as he could, but he didn't have a chance. No chance to reach Alfonse.
He set up sudden in the bed breathing heavily... end of dream.
It took him a moment to actually see the room he was in... to feel the fresh air of Rizembul...
He felt a hand touching his shoulder and he turned to see an oh so familiar face of someone he would hate in a different world.
Hohenheim of Light.
"Are you all right?" - the man asked. He was sitting there in the frenchbed, a book in his lap and something Ed didn't see often; his hair on loose.
Edward didn't say anything at first. He blinked some and then he settled back resting his head on the side of the man. Hohenheim pulled the cover back over the boy and stroked

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.

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

You both nodded feverishly, glancing quickly to blush at each other.
"You are both partially in soul resonance, a bond stronger than anyone can imagine." Lord Death had told you. It was rather awkward a conversation you were discussing a bond between him and his son. And to make it worse, this bond was stronger than anything anyone had ever experienced. It was an even closer bond than matrimony.
And you were discussing that with your boyfriend's dad.
You couldn't help but shake your head, trying to dust off the embarrassment you felt heating up in your cheeks during the recollection.

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.

It was my Statue of Liberty, symbolizing to me that I'd finally made it home . . . I almost cried with happiness. What I actually did was put my iPod in my bag, scream, and begin talking nonstop about how excited I was.
So there I was, walking with my aunt and her boyfriend Steve [more like skipping, because they'd made me eat lunch in the Dr. Seuss land and I was about ready to spontaneously combust].
