Deryn's Nightmare part 1The air is cold, but there is a small breeze that's flowing in through a small window on the wall in the cabin. The whole cabin was dim with the light from the moon seeping in. Alek was lying in bed, trying to get at least some kind of sleep before the sun comes up. But he couldn't manage to keep his eyes closed for some reason. It was late; the moon had almost left the room when there was a frantic knock at the door.Deryn's Nightmare part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alek slowly got out of bed when the knowing became louder. "Hold on, hold on. I'm almost there," the boy said as he quickened his pace. Once he opened the door he saw that it was Deryn standing there. She took there in the door way, shacking and looking at the ground. All she was wearing was her buttoned up white long sleeved shirt, which was a mess as well as her blue jeans. Her hair was either just as messy, or a bit worse.
"Deryn, what are you doing up so late and why are you shacking about like that?" Alek whispered to her. He noticed tha
Deryn's Nightmare part 2"Alek, The reason why I came in last night, the way that I did, was because I had a terrible nightmare. But it was so real and vivid, I could feel, see, smell, taste, and hear everything that happened, the whole lot of them all together". She said tightening her grip on Alek. She was so scared to remember it, the shaking was an obvious answer to it. Alek held her close while she was beginning to tear up again.Deryn's Nightmare part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hey, it's okay I'm right here. Don't worry I'm not going anywhere." Alek whispered in her ear. "Aye, and I love that you are. But the dream was so terrible, there was nothing I could do about it all, everything was going out of control and one thing happ-"Deryn was in a bit of a panic and before she could finish, Alek somehow managed to kiss her softly on the lips.
"Let's just start at the beginning, shall we?" he said as he pulled back a little. Deryn gave him a big hug, and then sat up straight. Crossing her legs she positioned herself at the other end of the bed in front of A

Deryn's Nightmare part 3The week had passed and we arrived at the appointed destination. The view into the canyon was impossible, for there was a layer of fog the covered it. There were some tire tracks as well as foot prints from beasts. The part that worried me was there had been a fine layer of blood that splattered the floor. The Captain was wondering why there was such an anomaly that haunted the canyon, as well as the blood.Deryn's Nightmare part 32 years ago in Personal More Like This
The sun was barely rising, but it was nowhere to be seen, so the fog layer was thick. We knew that once on the ground we would lose all possible communication unless we stood out in the open. Supplies would be short, and we were ordered to get in investigate and then leave with any information that we would find and report back to the Captain as fast as we could. I was in command of the unit that was appointed to the operation and it was up to me to lead them in and out safely.
The Captain was worried about walkers and any German scientists that would be there. So he wanted to have

After long moments of men shouting they had finally found us because the followed the trail of blood that came from our bodies. But what they saw hurt them inside as well as I was killing me.Deryn's Nightmare part 52 years ago in Personal More Like This
They helped me stand and carry your body back to the ship and from there they attached us to their own bodies and everyone carried us back to the safety of the ship. Once we reached the ship the other men saw what the heavy load was and all they could do was hopelessly watch as I carried your dead corpse pass them. No one stopped me, but they did make way for me where ever I went, even the Captain knew that such a friendship would never die and understood the heavy burden of death.
Klopp, Volger, and the other men only followed in silence and even though that wild count was so proud, he wasn't shy of tears that bled down

Right now, we're in the process of making up some stories that we could use. By meaning this, people are coming up with an idea for a short story and showing it to the others and at the end of a week, we'll vote on the story that we loved the most. With the story that we loved the most, we will then press froward on that story and make it something better becuase all of us are making it together. Yes it sounds like a bitch becuase so many people will have different ideas, but that is the best part of it all

“It has been a good few months since the female titan, Annie has been captured. She had crystallized herself to be kept from being asked questions, but somehow managed to escape the crystallization, and the guards keeping her there, and disappeared. If anyone is to find her, they will bring her back to HQ. Got it, brats?” Levi spoke with a quick urgency to everyone at HQ. Armin, out of all of them, seemed to be the most troubled by this predicament. He thought to himself quietly, ‘...Annie.. how did.. how was it possible for you to escape...’ Not knowing how to take the news, Armin took off outside to take a walk to clear his head.
The blonde, with his blue eyes closed, walked through the forest around headquarters.. There was a nice breeze and although it was calming, the lad couldn’t ease up. What would he do if he were to come in contact with Annie..
I will stand beside you once more, in the endAs I stand on the surface of the final battle ground I could only watch as the world I knew flashed before my eyes.

Now here I stand before their walls dripping with the blood of those who willingly held their allegiance to them. With my hands clenched tight around my sword I watch as I stand to them, not as a prince, no royal man, but as a soldier. A man.
I don't want this world to be cold as others wish, I will not bow nor stand for it. Others have followed my cause and not all are man. Both, man and their fabricated beasts of destruction stand at my side as I resist the hand that yearns to wrap its retched hands around my neck.

I had no choice to be what I wanted to be, it just happened.
So what if I'm not what I need to be in order to have the dreams I want.
To follow them and do what ever I can to be able to.
But why can't the others see that?
Why can't they just let me do what I've always wanted to do?
It wont hurt none, will it?
Or is it because of what I am?
There is no reason to butter it up.
Just because I am what I am, I have no right be what I want to be in this world.
I know why, and its wrong.
This should never be the kind reason why.
People shouldn't be segregated because of who or what they are.
People should have the free choice to be what they wish to chase in happiness.
But this is all because I'm a girl.
If I was never a girl, I could do it.
I could be the person I wanted to be without the others forcing me to be something else.
To be something else.
I just want to fly...
Is that too much to ask for?
Is it too much for one girl to risk everything to be able to fly?

Suddenly, the silence was broken by the drunken voices of two soldiers. We stopped, waiting quietly as two SS soldiers staggered down the street towards us, taking swigs out of their flasks. One of them stopped in front of me, his lips turned into a drunken smirk. "Well whaddo we haf here ?" He slurred, looking down at me. I felt Benjamin's hand tighten on my shoulder. "A pretty 'ittle thing for a Jew, ain't she, Viktor?"

The only sounds made are that of the ship and the crew. But at night, it seems like the ship is an undead beast flying across the night sky. Laying in bed all I see is darkness that envelops me whole. The only warmth is that of my love. Even though Barlow allowed us to share a room, I still can't fight away these dreams that haunt me.
Watching her sleep calms the raging nightmare within my mind, holding her only makes them go away for a short time. I know that its just my imagination, though they feel so real. I don't know what causes these dreams. But I hate them.
I know they are only dreams, but I find the need to watch her, to hold her. For when my eyes finally seal shut and my mind drifts way into the hell that awaits me. I have the

Startled she slammed her sketchpad shut and spun around to face her friend Alek " Don't sneak up on me like that, you Dummkopf!" she snapped back at him.

Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?An important point in the characterization of Paper Stars is that each character has one very important characteristic that defines them as a person and influences their day to day lives. Each of these traits are supposed to be both the character's greatest asset and their greatest flaw. They both build the character up and destroy their progress. And in this journal, I wannted to share with my readers an in-depth analysis of Benjamin Jastrow.Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easily the antithesis of Sara, Benjamin's defining characteristic is his altruism, and all of his other traits are influenced by it or are a result of it. His mild, gentle nature is centered around his carnal fear of causing others discomfort, which, in turn, becomes his own discomfort. His kindness is not limited to only those he cares for--it stretches to all those he meets, even when they are cruel to him, and he willingly shoulders the blame for any and all grievances around him. He is a human scapegoat, an alacritous martyr willing to give u
