Hooded ManHooded Man4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Born to kill, born to eliminate people
That lie. The hooded man has secrets
Deep down in his head, he doesn't deny
Them, he's not afraid.
He's everywhere, always there
Watching you, hunting you and
Waiting to strike. Collecting more information
For your death to be surprise.
You don't even notice that, but he
Is there. Always ready, always
Well prepared the hidden blade is
Waiting to stab.
While you're on your way, making
Plans for the dirty game. Somehow he
Appears in front of you and takes away all
The bad dreams you don't heal anymore.
Sofia, my Precious Flower of MineSofia, my Precious Flower of Mine4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You are my precious flower,
Your hair as the petals of a blossom rose,
Smooth by each touch of a strain,
Your gown as the color of ivy,
Surrounding your fine skin,
Your body as of a lovely stem,
Slender with curves,
Fragile by these rough hands of mine.
Your voice is the calling of the forest,
Attracting whom you wish to desire,
Your spirit is the Earth's internal growth,
Alive and free from no boundaries,
Your scent is the essence of sweet and spice,
Arousing my inner sensations,
Pleasing to my inner soul.
I yearn for you,
My precious flower,
That shall forever be within these hands of mine.

BL - Song of FarewellThe late evening of the first of May in 1519 in Clos Lucé was a subdued one. No-one within the manor found the motivation to speak rather, the servants were cloaked in mournful silence and were frozen in grief, huddling together to give each other comfort. Tonight, the world would loose one of the greatest men to have ever lived.BL - Song of Farewell5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The bedroom of Leonardo da Vinci was sparsely lit, candlelight flickering and casting skipping shadows in the entire room, the furniture dipped in a deep contrast of dark and light and coming alive with the movement of the flames. The atmosphere was so tense and eerie that Francesco Melzi sought refuge near the brightest area of the room on a chair beside the bed, where the aged Leonardo lay, faded blue eyes staring at the ceiling weakly as his body valiantly tried to fight the one mystery he had yet not unveiled.
Francesco gave his old Maestro and friend a saddened look. It was unbelievable to him that the energetic man had been reduced to this, b

You lay in bed silently, hearing Haytham stripping himself of his clothing, you kept you back turned, having never been the type to stare. The bed sheets were wonderfully soft and enriched with the familiar sent of fresh linen that you so loved. You listened carefully, knowing that Haytham was probably folding his clothes perfectly, then placing them neatly on the chair near the wardrobe, before slipping gracefully into some nightclothes.
Your (e/c) eyes flicked from the pillow to the door, which was naturally shut. You sighed quietly, nudging your head deeper into the unimaginable fluffy pillow, you thought it was like resting on the foam atop an ocean wave, except dry, well maybe your ocean metaphor was not so accurate, a good thing that you were not a novelist.
You felt the bed dip under Haytham’s weight as he crawled up to your side, touching you shoulder lightly. You couldn’t help but jump slightly at the unexpected contact

Everything about Sofia's life is wonderful. That is something she is certain of every day. It is a feeling that courses through her every time she thinks about the situation she's in and when looking at the fact, it is difficult to argue with that.
After all, she has a loving husband in Ezio Auditore, who is as wealthy as he is kind and a beautiful daughter and son who are her pride and joy. She lives in a beautiful house in Tuscany, not too far from Florence, where the world is green and the air fresh. She has her health and people around her who care for her and support her and who stand by her every day of her life.
It is a life that is worth envying and she is quite certain that many women around her do. Not everyone can be so lucky to have nearly everything a human craves, after all. It is natural that she is considered one of the most blessed women of this region, yet to Sofia, this isn't always true. As much as she has and as much as she appreciated, there i
Out of TimeEzio coughed again, and once more, blood came up. He wheezed with each step, and felt ready to collapse. The Venetian guard had grown tired of him. They had planned a trap, and Ezio had played right into it. "Cazzo!" He cursed, his balled fist weakly hitting a nearby wall. More blood came. He didn't even try to cover the slash on his chest. There was no point. The wound was a deep gash that started at his right shoulder and ended almost at his left hip, and it had not stopped bleeding. The front of his clothing was now more red than white, and the effects of bloodloss had already started to effect him. Staggering, he kept his hand against the wall for support. His vision had become blurry, as if walking wasn't hard enough.Out of Time6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As hard as it was to think through the pain, he had memorized the alleyways that lead into the Thieves' headquarters. It was the one place in Venezia he knew he'd be safe, if he didn't die trying to get there. Finally, it seemed, he made it into the small courtyard,

Soon after the confrontation in Brazil, Daniel traveled to Abstergo's Rome facility, where Warren Vidic held Desmond's father William hostage in hopes of obtaining Desmond's Apple of Eden as an exchange.
Daniel found Desmond in Vidic's animus room demanding that he hand over the Apple of Eden. "It's the 21st century and you are still running around with a tiny knife for protection? It's stupid!" he teased as he aimed the gun at the Desmond as he hid behind the animus like the mouse he was.
Suddenly as something was trying to stop him visions of early 1900's flooded before him. Demanding his vision and mouth as Russian spilled out. Visions of the shard, the turn of the world and a glimpse of what lies beyond appeared.
Daniel screamed, not now and for the memories to get out of his head. They felt like lava pouring in threatening to burn him away completely. He ran out of the room in a panic, seeing bits of Abstergo as patches of forests flickering on top. Daniel could rememb

“Master Malik this is too hard.” You let your head hit the many papers that was scattered on your table. Malik rolls his eyes at you.
“Stop complaining it is not that hard.” You rest your head on its side and looked up at him. Malik was trying to help teach you the history of the Assassin’s. It was actually encouraged by Altair for Malik to be your personal teacher. “Now stop complaining Novice.” Your eyes widen, then quickly narrowed. Yes you were a beginner and one of the few girls in the Creed but you were mostly treated with respect. But you hated to be called Novice.
“Don’t call me Novice. I don’t like being called Novice.”
“But you are one [Y/n]. You are a Novice.” You stood from where you were sitting and looked him in the eyes.

She stands on the edge, green eyes staring into the depth below. Nothing but treacherous sharp rocks and the deepest plunge she has seen in a long time. It's dangerous down there, deadly, and this edge is the only thing between her and potential death.
She shouldn't be out here. This is about the worst possible time to be out here. She can't just run away. Not like this, not now. She's running away from everything that has been assigned as her duty for the last few years. Yet at the same time, she knew she couldn't stay.
Desmond is in a coma. Lucy becomes more isolated the longer she stays at his side. Shaun has withdrawn into his own little world and has become even more unreachable than usual.

He turned, resisting the urge to smile at your child-like behavior when it came to going to new places, but in all honesty you just like the company of James himself... but you wouldn't tell him that to his face.
"All right, (Y/N)," James said with a small smile tugging at the corner of his well perfectly shaped lips, "Just keep up, will you?"
"Yes, Captain James," you said with a smile, "Where are we going this time?"
"That depends on how long it takes Edward to meet us at the dock...," James mumbled, "He's always late."
"Should we go and get him, then?" you asked James.
"Perhaps... we should this time," He said, "We were supposed to leave over an hour ago..."
So, the two of you left for town to try and find Edward Kenway.

Malik nodded, quickening his pace.
"Thanks for your help, brother. What's the situation out there?"
"It is an hour past dawn already, Alta´r," the Dai answered, hastening to the Master's desk. "Everything is arranged properly – Rafik just brought together the villagers, with all the men we have left. They are all waiting outside the Fortress."
He nodded absently, still sorting through the brownish parchment under his fingers. Suddenly, not for the first time that morning, his attention was captured by the thin leather cover of a small book.
It was Al Mualim's diary. That small book, the key to many truths of the Brotherhood, had been found in his clothes before the burial. Secrets, information and names had been recorded through the decades, for the new Masters to read, in the old man's minute handwriting.

Summary: The Carnival has once again hit Venice, but this time Ezio is not content with going there on his own.
AN: Because I can. After reading so many wonderful fics, seeing so many beautiful pictures and finally gotten my ass through ACII (awaiting Brotherhood until my wallet is no longer crying for mercy), I finally found some inspiration to try my luck with an ACII fic of my own.
By the way, my Italian is less than perfect so all my translations has been done thanks to the internet.

Leonardo let out a small sigh, resisting the urge to simply stick his brush up the assassin's nose in an attempt to shut him up. "No, Ezio, I must complete this commission. I am already far behind on it. Besides, as wonderful and amazing as the carnevale is, I have never been one to attend it. Far too much noise and too many people."

15 April 2012 - Florence
It was an ordinary day at Art Academy.
One of the students was studying in the library.
She had to do a research about the painting patterns during the Renaissance, so she had several art books over the table.
Suddenly, a violent gust of wind came from the nearby window, sending her notes flying and flapping some pages of her books before she managed to close the window.
She repressed a curse while she was recollecting all her notes and memos scattered on the floor.
When she finally sat back to her table, she stared at the chaos the wind had done.
Verrocchio's book was opened on the index, but she had placed a bookmark over the important chapter so, no harm done. The book about Leonardo da Vinci was opened on the biographical section.
"Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452."
How could she miss that?
That same day was Leonardo's birthday!

Every Templar agent had its flaws. This in itself was not surprising. After all, no human being was ever perfect and to be willing to work for the Borgia, a family in which murder, incest and betrayal were as normal as scratching one's back, one had to be severely lacking in the general virtues. It was practically a requirement to receive Cesare's coin.
Because of this, his network tended to consist of its fair share of socially-challenged individuals. Il Carnefice loved the smell of blood and the suffering of others, Il Lupo appeared as vicious and unpredictable as the creature he was named after, Silvestro Sabbatini could best be described as a greedy worm and Donato Manchini had an ego so big that it outsized the entire Lazio province. All of these lackeys had their fair share of bad habits, but none were as infuriatingly threatening to the public peace as those of a certain disastrous duo.

Desmond glanced over at him. "Still hungry?"
"Fucking starved. I'd settle for anything about now." Shaun propped his elbow on his knee, his foot resting on the edge of his seat.
Desmond tapped a small rythmn on the steering wheel. "What about IHOP?"
"Huh?" Shaun blinked. "IHOP? Never been." He mumbled, rolling his eyes at the laugh.
"You're kidding me, you've been in America all this time and never had an IHOP meal?" Desmond glanced across, the laughter falling from his face. "You're serious?"
Shaun shrugged. "I, Shaun Hastings, have never had a meal at IHOP. God, you make it sound like a crime, Des."

Twilight: A Critical Literary Analysis
In 2005 Stephanie Meyer's book Twilight was published and found itself on the New York Times Bestseller list. Since then it spawned three sequels New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn and they have inexplicably become one of modern literature's biggest cash cows. However Twilight and its sequels are just awful books, and that's why I've taken it upon myself to explain just how poorly constructed these novels are. Stephenie Meyer's use of language is bland and excessive in its detail, and it worsens when she tries to pepper in fancy thesaurus-words but uses them erroneously. Her prose is plagued with dialog to the point where it stops being a novel and becomes a childish role playing session. Meyer also fails to understand the most basic principles of fiction writing, such as how to effectively use point of view, how to utilize conflict to propel the story, or how to construct a plot. In addition her charact
The Enemies (Poem)The Enemies (Poem)4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Once upon a time that wasn't so upon,
There were two foolish, angry men
Who hated there wasn't much then
To hate and wish that all was gone.
Human nature led them down
Errant paths that were ridden with
Caustic thorns and toxic myths
And caused them both to drown.
There were two; and one stood tall
With veins of salt and words of ice,
A gifted charm that wore a price
And lost him in the fray's final fall.
The other wore his temper around
His neck in a ring of gracious fire,
And it so came to preside his ire
To turn and return him to the ground.
There has never been such ill will
As between these spiteful foes.
Countless vies history knows,
And that shall lead them to the kill.
Oh!; You have never seen such a sight!
Water and fire strike in ferocious flash!
The world around them flares to ash
And the shadows deplete the light!
Monsters entangle in violent sin,
Crimson and liquid trespass to
Elemental death and earthly coup!
How can this end when it cannot begin?

The night is drawing close around us
How much longer will we last, I wonder
The stars that once shone bright and fair in the sky
Are all covered by this shadow
The hope that once kindled in my heart
Now fades to a tiny faded light
Still I feel you within my heart
A hope that lies deep within
Your hope never fades
Nor your trust in me
My path once was hidden from me
But you light the way
Will our love endure this hard test?
Or will it flicker and die like so much already?
The only thing that I dream about now
Is your lovely face, surrounded by your raven coloured hair
How could I not stand against this shadow
When it threatens the life of one with such beauty
Alas my dreams must remain just dreams for the present
While you are safe with your father in Imladris
I am bound to wander in the East
The arm of the Enemy grows long
Soon he will have Imladris in his hand
To save you, I would send you to the Undying Lands
Sail away, my love
With the rest of your people
