"There is another body over here." Suriyawong said into the internal microphone of his suit's helmet.
"Is... Is it her, Suri?" Zerro said as he knelt and fingered through a still smoldering pile of rocky debris.
"No, it is wearing fatigues. Searching for tags: wait one," Suriyawong replied as he lowered himself onto a knee and traced his armored gauntlet around the fallen soldier's neckline. After a few seconds he fished out a pair of blood-stained dog tags that reflected the amber light of the small fires in the distance. "They belong to Commander Phillips. He was not able to evacuate with the other survivors."
Zerro breathed a short sigh of relief before a slight tinge of guilt hit him. At least it wasn't the Doc. "Okay, keep searching. We are not leaving here without her."
"Roger." Suriyawong replied as he solemnly set the metal ovals onto the Commander's chest and stood up again.

“20:04. I’m going to get scolded over this.”
The white tiger put his cellphone back into his pocket and focused on walking faster. To anyone looking, he would look like some sort of delivery boy. He wore a tracksuit with the hood up, letting a few blond bangs hang out, and was carrying a duffel bag under his arm, his sneakers harshly slapping the sidewalk as he hurried along. But in actuality, he was late for his martial arts class. The bag he carried was filled with his gi and some other training utilities.
His rush wouldn’t help him. He was supposed to be by the gym at 20:00.
“Dammit.” he muttered under his breath.
If only he still had classes at the old dojo. He had never arrived late back then. The dojo was on 10 minutes away from his house, near the campus, in a relatively calm place of the city. The gym wasn’t much farther, a mere 20 minutes away, but he had to deal with the downtown area traffic. Which mea

Characters: Rufus and Tseng
Tseng held onto the sobbing ten year old boy who was clinging desperately to him.
"It's alright. Let it out," Tseng said, a little uncomfortable at the role of giving comfort. It was not something that he was familiar with.
Rufus still sobbed and pressed his face against his belly. It sounded as if Rufus was trying to say something but he couldn't make it out between his painful-sounding sobs.
Tseng pulled Rufus away from his belly and dropped to one knee in front of him so he could look into the boy's smoky eyes.
"Take a deep breath," Tseng said and demonstrated it. He was glad to see the boy follow his example. Tseng ran his hands over the tear st

“Ryan? Is that you?”
The white tiger recognized the voice and turned away from the cafe’s counter, looking for the source of the greeting.
“Hey, it’s me!” a golden tiger waved from one of the tables behind him.
“Urgh.” Ryan grumbled under his breath.
Zack. His old sensei. Ryan thought he’d never have to see him again.
“Come over here! Let’s catch up.” He wore his usual cocky smile.
Ryan relented and brought his coffee up to the table, sitting down opposite to his previous master.
“What are you doing around here? I hadn’t seen you in so long.” The older tiger eagerly asked, laying his forearms on the table for support.
“My dojo is up there, around the corner. And what are YOU doing here, trying to get some converts?”
Zack laughed “Ha! No. I have a new dojo, the rent is cheaper. It’s a block from here, this is the nearest caf&

I don't fit in this world of vain
And fool people. Please, take this knife!
Muse! I beg you to get me slain.
Don't want to see them anymore
Spreading and chanting Idleness.
In her sweet name drawing horror
Mechanically puppet mistress!
This life is not for me
Not fore thee:
Humans live in a lie;
Me? I die!
All their beliefs are falsified:
Thinking their homes last forever!
With love and work they're satisfied;
Do they know rock and ground shiver?
One cannot rest on human laws
Or ways of life. These walls of glass
Though glimmering, have many flaws,
And they'll soon break under their mass.
This life is not for me
Not fore thee:
Humans live in a lie;
Me? I die!
A million splinters in the sky,
Brighter than stars, sharpened as swords
Fall like the tears of Gods who cry.
Human flesh is pierced, and then, chords
Of torment rise in harmony:
Nation and faith broken; rules gone.
Sun lights ruins of insa

~TFA Jetfire & Temptation~
~Forbidden Love, Part 2~
Servos sealed in status cuffs; Temptation's helm was lowered as she appeared on a stand before the Cybertron council. The leaders, Perceptor and Alpha Trion stood up.
"The Court-Martial is now in order," the old bot began, "the trial stands between Sentinel Prime's team of the Elite Guards, and Predacon femme Temptation of the Decepticons. Sparkchip, who has kindly volunteered will be the femme's lawyer of defence." Sentinel groaned. He knew Sparkchip was a femme bot with strong views and wasn't afraid to speak out. With her defending that freaky snake bot, there was a fat chance he could win the council over. Chip took her place before Jetfire tapped her on the shoulder plate.
"Oh please be helping my mistress Miss. Chip, you is my only hope," he begged quietly.
"Don't worry Jetfire," Chip reassured him, "I'll do my best to make the council that Temptation was no threat to you."

A Process Of Self-WorthLikely I heard it in undertones,A Process Of Self-Worth5 months ago in Emotional More Like This
Often a subtle remark reveals more than intended.
Said it once and should have meant it then,
Too often distance creates a void that you have to struggle to cross on your own
Those regrets have a funny way of consuming you if you let them,
Overwhelming needs to give in to every heartless word,
Gathering every wasted moment,
Eagerly trying to find a way to get out of my own head.
Today felt like it was the right time to let it go.
Haven’t realized every step towards the edge was reaching it together.
Even having a chance to take another step with you was a process of self-worth.
Relieved to find you there after finding my way on my own.

I am but three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.
I can't speak at all
I can't do a wrong
Or else I'm locked up
All the day long.
When I awake I'm all alone
The house is dark
My folks aren't home
When my mommy does come
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll get just
One whipping tonight.
Don't make a sound!
I just heard a car
My daddy is back
From Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse
My name he calls
I press myself
Against the wall
I try and hide
From his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now
I'm starting to cry
He finds me weeping
He shouts ugly words,
He says its my fault
That he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hits me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
And I run for the door.
He's already locked it
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me
Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor
With my bones nearly brok

Oh please, allow me
To leave and to fly
Above the blue sea.
I just want to try
To save all of thee
Who fall and who cry;
But you cannot see
My will and my heart!
You're neglecting me
As well as my art.
No more will I be
The ghost that protects
Each of your beauties.
I, too, will neglect
Your so profound seas.
No one sees my soul;
Its brightness will be
Swallowed by the fools.

You say "Beauty lies within"
Blondie, X-rays weren't what we meant
If money brings about such joy,
I feel pretty shitty for all I've spent
And if life's a hand of cards
Who's the dealer, can i be redealt?
If love hurt so damn much
Maybe that wasn't love you felt
And if the egg came before the chicken
That was some awfully ambitious yolk
If money is the root of all evil
Do I get a halo for being broke?
And they say "easier said than done"
Well i said, but i still haven't "done her"
If Jesus was a schizo freak
Would it have made the Apostles wonder?
If this world is so-called spinning
Then by all means i should be dizzy
If there's happy endings out there
They must all be owned by Disney
And if the glass is always half full, I ask
Who drank my other half?
If life is short then what about death?
Screw it, I shouldn't have asked.<i>

The Birthday Party
On Sophie's seventh birthday, Sephiroth realized that the outcome he had feared for his daughter for so long had come to pass. As he and Cloud planned her party, the two of them sat looking at the guest list with matching worry, though Sephiroth was careful not to show his concern clearly on his face. Cloud looked as though he might cry, and Sephiroth couldn't allow that to happen. He never knew what to do when Cloud cried.
“We've got to know more than two other families,” Cloud murmured softly, staring down at the short list of names, most of whom were his fellow Soldiers.
Sephiroth did not reply. He had a perfect memory. He had listed every family that still let their children play with Sophie.

A gentle breeze sets in motion an honest need to let go of my sad little balloon.
Most of the time I figure I could hold onto it a little longer if it means I

Let's pretend leaving it all behind isn't easier said than done.
One day I don't see myself coming back from this tricky little place in my head.
Sometimes my passion for the antagonist twists my stomach with every thought of you,
Thinking this time will be a slippery slope if I let you circle the drain with
all the regret that brings me here again.
