This was quite odd, since she was out gathering herbs with her sister, Arista, who also just happened to be the Healer of their Tribe. Though all Espeons have a sixth sense of sorts, Arista's was the most developed. Lately, though, Arista's senses had been failing her a bit. For instance, right now she was having a hard time sensing the herbs surrounding her and her sister. Perhaps her total concentration on finding the herbs was why she did not smell the smoke in the air or feel the heat rolling in from the direction that the camp was.
"Arista!" Elinor knew it was dangerous to interrupt Arista, but she was extremely worried. Perhaps this was just one of those simple fires that young trainers sometimes lit, but she did not want to take any chances.
Arista quickly looked up from the ground on which her eyes had been fixed moments before. "Yes, Elinor?"
"Don't you smell the smoke??"
Arista quickly looked around. Suddenly, her ears perked up and her

I can still remember the sound of her voice, the smell of her perfumed skin, the touch of her hand on my then-small head.
But no matter how hard I try, I can't remember a face.
After the divorce, my father took down every picture of her. He burned all of the albums that shedidn't take. The only picture I have of her was taken when I was 3, a little bit before the divorce. In it, I'm clinging on to the bottom of her skirt. Her right hand is resting on the top of my head. We're in a garden, a garden that she had.
That garden doesn't exist anymore.
As far as certain memories go, I mainly remember the little things. I remember her teaching me how to plant a flower. I remember her showing me a baby Caterpie.
I remember her telling me how much she loved me. Every day.
My mother was always smiling around me. But there was a sadness in her smile. Even t that young age, I could tell she was faking it. She tried to be the cheerful one, the upbeat one. But s

Christine shut the trunk of her car. A man approached her with her bag and a paper bag. Christine gladly took both bags from him. "Thanks Robert. You're truly a gentleman."
"It's no problem, after all you did for me." He laughed and opened the door for her to put both bags in the car. "Margaret packed you some food for the road, including some of those biscuits you love so much." Christine brightened up at the sound of that. Margaret's biscuits were like heaven for the tongue.
"Tell her thank you."
"Listen." The man's face grew serious. "I can't thank you enough. Without your help, I don't know how I could have been able to handle these new powers." He raised his hand where his wedding ring now boasted tiny engraved stars.
"Believe me, you'd been worse off."
"I mean, with elections coming in a year and my planned visit to the warfront, I think I could have gone insane with worry about all of this." Robert sighed, his wrinkles deepening at the thought.

A small grey spinning top flew across the air and started to surround the unsuspecting Pikachu with a white line of sorts. Controlling the direction of the spinning top was a strange-looking green handheld control with an abnormally long antennae, which was in the hands of a young adult girl wearing a strange uniform of some kind; the uniform consisted of a green pseudo-cardigan, a navy blue shirt, a yellow tie, fingerless gloves, shorts (both the gloves and the shorts share the same shade of blue as the girls shirt) and brown boots, almost as tall as her knees.

Hiccup scowled, rubbing at his right arm, still sore from Astrid's punching. Apparently she thought it was a cute thing to do, to prove she was strong. But all it did was make Hiccup's arm ache, and he really didn't need the extra body pains, what with his missing limb and all.
He wandered aimlessly through the village, past the bakers, grabbing a sticky bun on the way down to the beach, where Toothless loved to roll around in the sand and dig up clams and hermit crabs. Apparently dragon's loved seafood, though he shouldn't have been surprised with Toothless' love for fish.
Usually the beach was empty, save for Toothless and a couple of Terrible Terrors who had made a home out of a small cave on the far end of the sandy shore. Today there was a familiar green Zippleback, one of it's head's asleep, the other one purring and garbling, sparking occasionally as it's jaw was scratched.

Malik was shaken lightly awake by a gentle hand on his shoulder. He blinked his eyes, his vision blurring into clarity. When he didn't move, Ryo leaned down and kissed his lips lightly, rubbing his arm.
"Made it," he whispered. "We're home."
"Already?" Malik croaked. His half-British lover chuckled.
"What do you mean, 'already?' It's almost midnight, love." Ryo moved himself out of the way of Malik's raising arms as the Egyptian stretched, his chest rising and falling with a tired moan under a black tank top and suede vest. The kohl mascara he'd been wearing only hours earlier was smudged, and his platinum-blond hair was messy and tangled. God, he hated planes. The jet-lag was killing him.

She once was the perfect daughter
who would do anything she had to..
But no one knew the pain she held
the smile that always fooled you...
Her arms were always covered up
with her black and blue sweaters..
She held that smile of pure gold
no matter what change in weather..
Her wrists held the scars and cuts
but she always helped others in pain..
She listened day after day of their problems
but still never once did she complain..
She knew as along as they were happy
then it didn't matter that she was dying..
Hiding herself from others.. alone
hidden in her room, cold and crying..

then everything around her would change..
But all that seem to change that day

the tears being washed away with rain..
She held her razor blade tightly
thinking of all the mistakes she made..

.ineffable. good omensBad television was the root of all terrible ideas. It was a stretch to compare one to the other, but, as religion had shown, and history had hammered incessantly into the brains of anything more sentient than an amoeba, believing an insane fact was true simply because there was some coincidental evidence was fine as long as you believed it hard enough, yelled loud enough, and burned a few thousand Catholics for emphasis, or invaded a peaceful, non-war-mongering country and took all their food and curiously-shaped artworks. It might have been easier to say that bad television was the root of all Crowley's horrible ideas, or that bad television and Crowley's ideas had the same problem in the category of not being executed properly, but the demon was tired of being blamed for everything.

Come Home With Me - Chapter 1
Sasuke wasn't sure if he'd make it through the full six months. He'd been back in Konoha for only three weeks, but the constant following was already getting on his nerves. He couldn't help but draw comparisons between the ANBU following him here and Orochimaru's subordinates following him around Sound and that had been damn creepy. He was distantly amazed the constant following, the incessant watching, hadn't driven him insane. Sasuke was darkly amused when he realized that his fan club had apparently served a purpose in desensitizing him from stalkers, or rather, "guards."
He'd also have to thank his teammates for keeping the Uchiha compound from getting completely torn down. Oh yes, some of the more neglected buildings had been ordered torn down, but for the most part, everything was still where he left it. Walking through one of the shabbier parts of town, Sasuke suddenly realized he'd never seen Naruto's apartment. He vaguely recalled t

Daisuke was usually very calm however today he just couldn't seem to stand still and paced around back and forth in his room. The lectures seemed so difficult to focus on too. Even a couple of classmates had asked him if everything was alright including Harada-san.
"I'm fine, there's nothing to worry about." He had told them.
Collide (KuroxFai)The first streaks of dawn came in through the window, the light made hazy by the thin material that passed for curtains. Kurogane though, sat sleeping in the shadow directly under the window. Fai could never understand how the ninja could sleep that way.

Without opening his eyes, Kurogane snorted, "If you're awake, why don't you go fix breakfast?"
Fai grinned, not at all fazed that the ninja knew he was awake. "Because it's too comfy to get up yet."
"Your sloth will surely be your downfall, wizard." There was no real bite in Kurogane's voice however, which to Fai meant he could scoot across the floor to twine around Kurogane's feet.
Kurogane opened his eyes and glared. "What are you doing?"
"Purr?" Fai gave his most charming smile. Then he got down to business and snuggled, knowing Kurogane had resigned himself to being tangled up in Fai.

He realized one night that there were three reasons Kurogane always went to bed after everyone else. The ninja claimed he needed less sleep than they did, which was true. He also claimed that no work would ever get done if he didn't stay up to do it, which was partly true. The third reason, Fai found out from Mokona.
"Kurogane likes to stay up so he can watch Fai sleep!"
And Fai hoped that this was completely not true, because he loved the ninja more than was good for him, and if his feelings were returned, he would be in deep trouble. Fai didn't deserve to be loved. Mostly, deep down, Fai admitted that he was a coward, and he was afraid to be loved.
