Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 1- The PickpocketYou looked out over the usually busy streets of Constantinople. This was your pitiful life. Living as a pickpocket had never been the life you would choose, but it was you. You had worked alone for your entire life, preferring solitude rather than a large faction, which most thieves gravitated towards. After regretfully reflecting on your lifestyle, you exhaled a long, drawn-out sigh. Crouching on the ledge of one of the city's large buildings, you gingerly set a hand down on the stone to support yourself as you peeked over the edge. Not too far of a drop down. Too bad leaping straight down wasn't where your target was located. You then proceeded to look up, over a few more heavily-crowded streets, to a merchant irritatingly shouting about the rugs he was selling. He was a large man, dressed in the stereotypical Italian merchant garb. You gave a sickened frown, this man was the living definition of annoying. Too bad for him you were about to ruin his day.Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 1- The Pickpocket2 years ago in Romance More Like This

It was finally done. The little Zweilous plush I had spent weeks to make was finally finished. It was lifezise, the tops of the two heads standing at 4'08". I loved it, and in honor of it, I decided to go get a Deino on my Black version and name it in honor of the plush. I turned on my DSi and skipped through all of the opening screens until I got to the 3D Reshiram. I watched the camera pan around the white Pokemon in circles, then resumed to press start and begin my game. I was at Skyarrow Bridge, and I remembered that I had was trying to hatch an egg. I used my Kyurem, Cruornivi, and made him use Fly. The Unova map faded in from black, and I moved the red cursor on the screen up until it hovered over Victory Road. I clicked it, and the Fly animation came up, the screen faded, and faded back in. My trainer sprite was standing at the foot of the rocky mountain, the gates behind me and the dark entrance to the cave in front. After a few minutes of fighting and easily defeating Durants

You blinked, uncertainty starting to creep in. You had always worked alone in your work, but you had always felt as if something were missing. It could be a number of things, you thought. Being part of a family, using your gift for a cause bigger than yourself... Or maybe even you just wanted to be with Feli a bit longer. You liked his attitude- you've never experienced this much happiness at once, and it seemed as if he had enough for the both of you.
It's not like anything was holding you back, after all. You gave a quick glance around- the streets were cleared except for you, Feliciano, and the lifeless bodies of guards and Arquebusiers downed by Lovino.
You continued to stare into his eyes for a moment- in them, you could see nothing but warmth and kindness. They were definitely something you wouldn't want to ever leave.
"O O-okay." You gave a short nod. "Really?!" Feliciano asked, his smile getting bigger, if at all possible. "That is-a fantastic!"
Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 3- The First"--And-a you can stay with Feliciano in-a his quarters," Lovino said, in a surprisingly kind tone. He set a gloved hand on the door to Feliciano's room. You shot him a weird look, holding your bulky new Assassin clothing in your arms, "Why don't you stay with him? He's your brother, after all."Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 3- The First2 years ago in Romance More Like This
"I can't-a stand my brother," He began, rolling his eyes slightly, "All-a he talks about is-a pasta and pizza, It's-a all so obnoxious " He opened the door, casually stepping inside. Feliciano had been sent on something called an "ingredient gathering mission", so Lovino was showing you around, helping you get your armor and cloak, and so on.
Apparently it was very important, because Feli was sent off not long before he brought you to the Assassin's Den.
You carefully stepped inside behind Lovi, looking around. Feliciano's room was messy, several weapons just nonchalantly scattered about at dangerous angles (such as the blade of a scimitar on the ground facing you and Lovino), along with nu

This is meant to help people who have had trouble running Shimeji's.
I once downloaded a shimeji and whatever I tried wouldn't work, and it turned out I was only clicking one wrong thing!
This is what works for me, since my computer's pretty old and doesn't like to make things work. If this doesn't work for you, I'm really sorry :c We might be using a different type of computer, internet browser, etc. I'd like to hear and questions you may have, and though I'm not a Shimeji expert, I'll try to help out in any way I can~
1. Downloading Files
I always download .ZIP files from MediaFire. Before I downloaded any Shimeji's, I installed something wierd called WinZip, which is a program for extracting files. It's pretty safe, but can get kind of annoying sometimes. You can download the free evaluation trial if you like, or buy it. I only have the trial, so it will most likely end soon, but that's alright. Anyway, download the .ZIP, then WinZip wil

Trying to avoid contact with him, you placed your hands against his chest and tried to gently push Feliciano away from you. His brows furrowed at the shove, and made a soft noise in his sleep before wrapping his arms tighter around you. Now you found yourself pressed even closer to the Assassin's chest. You felt warm and safe, though you desperately tried to push that feeling to the back of your mind. You tried to squirm away in one last futile attempt, and eventually gave up.
After a while of letting him sleep in silence, you heard a loud yawn next to you. You glanced over to see Feliciano blinking the sleep out of his eyes. The two of you stared at each other for a moment, before he gave a big smile, still clinging to you, "Morning, mia bella."
"Good morning Feli " You muttered, blushing still. He flipped some hair out of his face, "Are you-a okay, [F/N]?" He asked, giving you a con
Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 6- The FateYou spun around, your heart immediately thudding inside your chest. Five Janissaries stood in a row in front of you, the one in front with his arm crossed over his chest. One of the guards in the back of the group was dragging something heavy and bloody- a beaten heap of a body. Whether it was alive or not, you couldn't make out.Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 6- The Fate2 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Seems as though the-a little pickpocket got lost and-a tangled in the Brotherhood " The cocky head Janissary scoffed, giving a husky, dry laugh. It sounded awful- as if he had sand in his throat- and it sent a eerie shiver down your spine. These were the same guards that almost killed you the mere days before.
Without thinking, you held your Splinter bomb tighter. You suddenly had an epiphany
And you did- in one wide involuntary swing of the arm, you sent the small sphere full of deadly caltrops right into the ranks of your attackers. One Janissary on the side saw it first, and he immediately flung his body away from their patrol. The oth
Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 7- The WoundsHe continued sobbing into the leather pauldron on your shoulder. Lovino now made his way towards the two of you- finishing off a Janissary that was desperately trying to claw away. "Are you-a okay, [F/N]?" he asked, panting slightly, wiping some sweat from his forehead with a white-clad sleeve. You nodded very slightly, the slightest hint of movement sent shocks of pain from your shoulders and hips to your spine.Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 7- The Wounds2 years ago in Romance More Like This
You hadn't noticed your wince once you spoke, the pain from the caltrops in your skin was like a burning, searing pain. They'd be sore tomorrow, huh? Feeling a small spasm of pain go through you, you twitched, alerting Feliciano of your injuries. He stopped squeezing his arms desperately around you, he had been hugging you close to him the entire time. The Italian gave a quiet sniffle, wiping his still-tearful eyes with a hand. You looked at him sadly- it pained you, even more, to see him cry like that
He attempted to smile reassuringly to you, "S-sorry, bella " he
Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 8- The AwakeningYou had already drifted off to sleep before you could see Feliciano's reaction. Your last conscious thoughts had been something along the lines of "what would he think?", "would he hate me?", or even the fleeting spark of hope, "does he love me too?"Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 8- The Awakening2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Maybe you would never know, just to confess your love as your final breath is released from your lungs. Thoughts of love, death, and the Assassins swam through your consciousness, when suddenly your world went blank. Only the sound of your still-living heartbeat thudded calmly, piercing the abrupt silence.
Out of the vast absence of material form, you saw yourself. Standing in full-clad armor, you glanced around as you tried to take in the inexistent surroundings. Out of the thudding silence, soft footsteps began echoing through the space, as if slowly stalking on wooden flooring. You looked up.
A white-cloaked figure slowly began forming as the footsteps came closer. You felt no fear, muttering a hello.
The figure stopped in front of you.
Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 5- The TrailThe three of you- Lovino and Feliciano Vargas, and yourself- all stood upon the towering spire of the Assassin Den. Lovino was crouching, perfectly balanced, on the very tip of the building. How he managed to succeed in staying up there was beyond your knowledge. You and Feliciano, on the other hand, were on either side of the cylindrical stone, each gripping a ledge with one hand and letting the other swing free. You all were facing the same way- but only the two veteran Assassins knew what the mission was.Assassin!ItalyxReader-Part 5- The Trail2 years ago in Romance More Like This
On the way to the top of the spire, you had asked each of the Vargas brothers more than once about it. Feliciano had just given you a warm smile and assured you that you would know once you got there. Not surprisingly, Lovino had just given an irritated huff. The source of his irritation was most likely not you, though, for you now knew that Lovino was actually very kind to women. It was just other men (and his brother) who he couldn't stand.
"There!" Lovino said rather loudly, mak

Pokémon Creepypasta Abandonment Hurts
I have always been a fan of the Pokémon series ever since I was 2 in 1998 when it came out. I didn't really know that it was a game at first so I just watched the TV. show. Then I played my first Pokémon licensed game: Pokémon Pinball at my doctor's office on his Gameboy colors in the waiting room but finally when I was 5 I would Finally get my own Pokémon game for my own Purple see-through Gameboy color that I had gotten for my 5th birthday along with Pokémon Crystal Version. I loved that thing to death I played it all the time even though I couldn't read some of it but I still loved it all the same.
I popped in the cartridge and watched as the Gameboy screen flickered on with a "Ding!" and watched my first Pokémon journey unfold as something rushed past in the grass and a Pichu and Wooper came up to see what it was. There it was: Suicune running through the fields.
