The Katrix Connection 1
To Set A Black Rabbit Loose
While that one phrase about a frying pan and fire suddenly came to mind, Alicia realized she was someone who skipped the pan altogether. She supposed it came from her father’s side…but then again it was her mother who had always been the one to fight first and ask questions later. Her parents had obviously done a marvelous job raising her, given that she was now being dragged with black chains around her wrists. Luckily for her, the female guards had given her a matching set for her ankles as well, so that she didn’t commit a further crime in fashion with the rags she was dressed in.
They stopped short, appearing to have reached her jail cell. A barred window lay high above and the dim sunlight displayed web-like cracks in the bricks, while in the darkest corner, a small wooden bed sat covered in a sheet, strands of hay visible. The guard on her left opened the door, the one on the right gripping her arm harder than necessary before

"This is nowhere near how I imagine this kingdom....Are you sure we are in the correct location?" False green flickered back and forth, taking in the surrounds as the two girls entered the bustling market place.
The lengthy bazaar-like was packed with people, corner to corner with market stands and indoor shops, full of life and activity. Shopkeepers hollered advertisements to every and any passerby, people paying in metal coins or even bartering items they had on them, impressive knock-offs of fancy armor and weaponry (everyone knew to always purchase gear from the source, which meant browsing through the actual armory's selection), and children of all ages, sizes, and color laughing and adding to the noise with their gleeful shouts.
Her hands arched behind her head, Petrica gave a light chuckle as she rolled her eyes.
"Just 'cause the place is run by a mad woman with a power obsession, doesn't mean the people can't live happily and have normal expe

It took a while, but they eventually exited the forest due west. Luckily for them, they came across a kindly farmer headed in that general direction. He allowed them to ride the back of his coach, the thief and the princess taking to the right side while the fayri took the left. Before they had approached them, Sūraja had turned her scarf into a headdress, covering her ears from view.
Setting their gear at their feet, the trio took a moment to relax. Eventually though, as the carriage started to pull away, Petricia began to get restless from the silence. She nudged Alicia in the rib, nodding her head in Sūraja's direction. "Ya gonna do it?" She asked with her eyes. Alicia nudged back with a blink of her eyes "No! You're the one who's known her longer!" This led to a back and forth that evolved from gentle nudges to full on shoves.
"So what exactly is that you wish to ask of me?" They stopped their antics, to see Sūraja watchin

"Okay, tell me I'm not the only one who feels that Mrs. McLane knows a lot more than she should?" Alicia said as she buttoned up her pajama top, standing near the patio later that night. To their surprise Petricia still hadn't taken off her uniform, checking herself out in the vanity,
"I dunno anythin' about that, but that lady knows a thing or two about fashion. Is this outfit not the cutest damn thing?" Petricia caught her companions' stares through their reflections, her smile morphing into a pout. "What? Just because I'm a complete and utter badass doesn't mean I can't appreciate adorable clothes?"
Sūraja sat on her bed fully dressed for bed, her hands pressing her feet, hair in single braid. "I have also noticed that as well, Alicia. How is it that she's able to make such tailored outfits to match our personalities when she has known for less than 48 hours? It seems that she is a fountain of knowledge on many subjects and if we

Chouji stopped pacing for a second, the house noticeably stiller beneath them. Behind him, his red-marked friend leaned against the wall, crossing his arms over his chest. Clearly the Inuzuka was seen the point in his worry. Chouji straightened himself up before facing Kiba's direction. He sighed, hands running through his hair long, spiked hair.
"It's just that everything needs to be prefect for tonight and--"
"When the hell did that happen?"
Chouji cut his eye at his friend before raising an eyebrow. "When did what happened?"
"Become such a perfectionist when it comes to Ino of all people." Chouji watched as Kiba scrunched up his nose at the thought of obsessing over every little detail. He knew that it was beyond his friend's reasoning as to why someone would put that much energy into one event.
Not that he missed a beat with his response of "Because to me, Ino is perfect and deserves the very best." To this Kiba rolled his eyes

Neji, for all his keen hindsight and ability to read others, really should have saw the question coming.
"Ne, Neji, do you think I'm pretty?"
More importantly, he really should have come up with an verbal answer beforehand. Had he been an idiot like Naruto or Lee, he might have lost his composure and stumble a bit. Instead he merely coughed, louder than he had intended to.
Ten Ten had cast glance at him that he caught, a slight smirk on her face. Neji rolled her eyes. It was just another one of her attempts to--his eyes flickered back to her as she took a skip or two ahead of him. Her hands were behind her back, arms stretched out. His teammate looked at the heavens above, clouds gently passing over them.
She did a little pirouette like turn to face him, a certain sadness he wasn't used to in her eyes, her smile darker than normal. Neji couldn't but think that she did look very beautiful when she had such a sad look in her features. He almost s
Love AndDeath was like us once, falling in love with none other than the beauty that is Life.Love And4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But Death was shy and could not face Life, Instead, Death watched from afar
In the shadows of the Universe that went uncounted
And watched as Life created all these fantastic things
When Life moved on to something new,
Death would always try to get close to that which its Beau created
But as Fate (who was such a cruel elder sister sometimes to Death) would have it
That which He tried to touch faded into nothing simply by his presence
The list of His apologies and regret grew over time, causing Death to slowly lose His mind
At some point He snapped, stepping out of the extra shadows
And sending everything over to his maniacal brother, Chaos's control
Admist this, Death came to His senses and began to weep for the disorder he had brought
It was then that he felt a warm hand on His shoulder,
Death's hood fell back as He looked, shocked to see Life smiling down at him.
"I-I'm sorry...so very, very sorry."

Fear of who I am, of what I am, of what I could be.
What goes unnoticed is the terror in my eyes
For I am nothing more to them than a monster, a beast, a creature to be feared.
I fear the night for it does not show me my worst nightmares, but theirs.

Rolling over several times, he quickly rose, limping slightly and whimpering in pain.
When the Moon fell in love with Sun
All was golden in the sky
A collection of flowers surrounded the space he had now invaded. Not too far off he could see a figure sitting at a wooden table in the middle of the garden, underneath an umbrella tree. She had long black hair and wore a kimono with various shades of purple.
When the sun found the moon
She was drinking tea in a garden
Under the green umbrella trees

He trotted over, the woman taking notice of him as soon as she took a sip from her drink. "Oh you poor thing," She cried, bending over to pick him up and see her reflection in those blue eyes of his. Lifting him a little higher to see, she noticed the gash on his stomach.

It happened in a flash, the two unnamed bodies hitting the ground. Hinata Hyuuga didn't even blink as she whispered her incantation. Her lavender force fields overtook the destroyed remnants. A laugh-like snicker met her ears as she stood. A small smile was on the Arrancar's face as he rubbed the back of his head when she turned to him.
"You're still a strange girl, you know that? Taking care of someone clearly only just met."
"Don't speak." A chill ran down her spine at how quick his voice changed. The light in his smile had all but vanished, his eyes darker than they should ever be. He was not the same as he once was. "You will walk with me. Reply any other way and I won't kill you--"
Images appeared behind him, like that of a television screen. Uchiha-san, Kiba-san, Konan-chan.
"But I will kill your "friends." His fake smile appeared again, as he slid his hands into his

How long had it been since he had used those eyes? It seemed almost a lifetime ago, when really it had only been a few months. He let out a tired sigh, only shadows visible beneath his bandages. Sasuke Uchiha rested his arms flat against the windowsill, one on top of the other. Crossing on his left leg over his right, he tilted his head ever so slightly to hear the birds chirping outside.
Then there came the opening of his door, the familiar calling of "Pardon the intrusion.", and the non-surprising act of no movement from him whatsoever. Almost something of a motif with them, he kept his back to her as the clicking of her heels meet his ears. It was always her, never anyone else .
Okay so that wasn't entirely true. Sometimes it was the old hag, others it was the ramen idiot, perverted sensei, or the ink-eyed freak. In truth, he didn't mind the company when it arrived. Well, now at least. The first two months had been so unbearabl

It was always an event seeing her cousin, especially with him filling in for the Godiame. He always had this serious face that seemed like it didn't belong.

"Onee-chan!" The redhead winced at his loud cry, but smiled despite her slight annoyance. She was lifted by a clone. He had a tendency to conjure up one when he was attempting to act to dignified as Hokage. It was that stupid grin on his face as the clone dismissed and he felt the memory of the hug--something, she noted, he rather gave or recieved despite his personality--that destroyed all his efforts. That is until his face shifted, within a a fraction

Rai rubbed his head, "Ow....." he murmured as he got to his feet. He looked around the room for a few seconds, it definately wasn't HIS room that was for sure; darkly coloured walls and carpets, death metal CDs, porn mags and some creepy ass figurines.
"Oh shit." Rai said as he realised where he was.
"I'm in Sebian's room...."
He scrambled about trying to find his clothes and after about five minutes careful searching he found one of his socks. Rai froze as he heard footsteps approaching from down the hall. In a panic Rai searched frantically for anything that would cover him, finding only a pair of black hot pants. Gasping as he pulled them on, he dived under the bed just in time as Sebian waltzed into the room looking pleased with himself. Egotistical bastard. He was wearing a pair of ripped, ass-hugging jeans and.........Rai's shirt.
"Aw crap." Rai whispered to himself, "What the fuck happened last night?!"
Sebian stopped and stared at the bed.

"What's the romantic thing Kiba's ever done for you?"
Amber eyes blinked before turning to look at the blond girl beside her. Karui sat a few feet away from her, underneath a red and white umbrella in a golden two piece. Ino lay out in the beach sun, her top straps loosed not leave behind tan lines.
"Why do you care?" The Kumo nin asked carefully. Ino propped herself on her elbows to turn her head properly at her new friend.
"Because I dated that bonehead for several months and I like to make sure he's treating you better than he did me."
'Well at least she was honest,' Karui took a moment to recollect all their dates thus far, her face noticeably darkening the more she remembered. It was at this that Ino had a Chesire like grin on her face, practically ready to devour whatever Karui was about to tell her.
"It was after our third date, on the night before I was supposed to head back to Kumo. I was just packing my things, when all of a

With them always, even beyond death
For them, all emotion is shared
To give it our all, regardless of what other tell us?
For her, he will break a promise
With her, he might become the greatest
To love someone unconditionally despite their faults,
For him, she'll put her life and love on the line
With him, all she wants is happiness and peace
Or their crimes?
For him, she would have walked a dark path
With him, she only wants love
To get revenge on another's misdeeds?
For her, he'll hesitate, if only for a moment
With her, he'd be able to see the light of love again
To defy destiny?
For her, he might fight an army single-handedly
With her, he'd be happy
Or to create it?
For him, she'd get stronger, just in case he needed protection
With him, she'd be more than the orphan girl with an obsession with pointy things
To rekindle dying flames?

She never looked in him in the eye because she wasn't used to being treated so much like...well, like every little girl dreams they'll be treated one day by their Prince Charming. And she was too strong of a woman to admit it to him.
So when his index finger unwrapped from hers on New Year's eve--it had become their gesture, something simple, something so insignificant and tiny--and he stood at her side with a face etched with so much pain and anger, she thought fast and stopped him in his tracks. Later that night, his foolish smile never left and he would continue to say that her kiss was what had sparked the fireworks that night.
