I can hear the music,
playing in my head...
That brick wall melody,
that leaves me dry and bled.
Back out, unsound, way past
The naive embrace,
clutched like the withering vine,
so doubted in commonplace.
That sorrowful harmony,
with mysterious limbs
running like mad
through my mind, so dim with fog.
In my wake do I hear that music
of the morbid and downtrodden sound...
Sweet, the symphony of my imagination...
the chaos, although so profound.
Stained, my face with the misery
Of this occupation of thought,
not much, yet the burdens are stiff
within the acidic net, am I forever caught.
New JobWow! Look at this town! Misty looked up in wonder at the huge cityscape that surrounded her. The city was the biggest she’d ever seen! This place was great! This place would be perfect to set up as a new home. The gym had collapsed 5 years ago when misty was 17, and ever since then Misty had been traveling the world, looking for a perfect place to set up a new life. It had taken another 5 years to find it. And now she was at the end of her long journey at last. Misty charged down the street with the determined air of someone who wants to see everything they possibly can all at once. Almost every shop and building had something that piped her interest. As she walked down the crowded main street, she stopped in shock in the middle of the street, badly injuring a bike rider behind her as he crashed into a fire hydrant to avoid her. She didn’t even notice. What she did notice was the pokecenter, and at the moment, it had her full attention. It was as big a skyscraper, stretchinNew Job6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

I slowly opened my eyes to the sunshine coming through the open window. The pillow I rested my head on smelled like beer and pasta. I could hear heavy breathing next to me. I sat up and looked over to my lover, Ludwig. He sat criss-crossed on the soft and messy bed. I could tell he had been up all night.
"Germany, what's the matter?" I asked him, holding his icy cold hand. His eyes were empty pools of blue. Ludwig's skin was paler than normal, which was not a good sign. His chest was rapidly rising and falling with every breath. Germany looked so scared; I've never seen him like this before. Ludwig opened his mouth to speak, his voice cracked slightly.

He'll sleep with me every night, half the time clinging on to me in his sleep. Mumbling little nothings in his sleep about pasta and what not. All those nights he woke me up telling me he had nightmares and couldn't fall asleep, crawling into my arms asking me to make them go away.
Then the times he'd kiss me in public, telling me how great of a friend I was, and how much he liked me. He'd always leave me speechless when he did such things. I'd always mumble something and walk away, asking myself why I never told him to stop those actions. Why I couldn't bring my self to tell him this wasn't the way friends acted.
"Ludwig are you okay?" his hand brushed the hair out of my face so I could see his face clearly. Thinking about this in his presence wasn't the best of ideas but what else

The Clone Wars: Battlefield Christophsis
The Clone Wars have begun, not two months have passed since the opening battle of the war on Geonosis and the planets of the Galactic Republic are under grave threat from the Confederacy of Independent Systems and their Droid Army. The Separatists control many of the hyperspace lanes that link the Republic together, effectively isolating member planets across the Republic and leaving them all but defenseless.
One such planet is the rich world of Christophsis. This planet is not only a major economic hub for the Republic, but it is one of the few planets which has allowed refugee camps upon its surface. Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan has been a major sponsor of these camps and was touring the planet when the Confederacy struck.
With only limited defensive forces, Christophsis was no match for the might of the Droid Army which quickly swept across the planet and conquered it save for a few scattered hold outs. Desperate both to secure t

“Marco?” You grumbled. You slowly opened your eyes to see the man himself. No feature different from when you last saw him. That is, before his demise.
“Who else (y/n)?” He smiled at you and held a hand out to you. You accepted it and felt his smooth touch once again. You groaned a little remembering your incident with The Female Titan. “Where are we?” You questioned grasping your head with your free hand. As you looked at the tanned boy, he seemed a little down.
“Marco. Where are we?” You asked again but this time in a forcing tone. You seemed panicked by Marco’s abnormal ways. He seemed a little more tense and sad. He didn’t seem to answer, the direction he was looking at showed the answer though.

“I told you, we need to find out why your vomiting hasn’t stopped.” Rue had been trying to explain that he and everyone else had been worried about her; he was also certain that if the doctor hadn’t found the cause of her illness, she’d be just as angry.
“Whatever... Might as well get this over with.” Mint retorted, crossing her arms over her chest. She slouched back in her chair, looking at the health posters on the walls of the waiting room. Her eyes found a very pregnant woman sitting in a seat at the far corner of the room. Mint muffled an abrupt yelp. That could be her in a few months time!
Rue noticed his wife’s anxiety right away (despite her best efforts to hide it) and he quickly grabbed hold of her small hand, intertwining their fingers.

In your many colors
But the ones you give me
Are the same like my others
I'm that happy mantra
Stuck on your pealing wall
Press your ear to my drum-beat
I won't 'come' to your call
Stomping footsteps, head held high
Ignoring the dust marks left behind
Look what you do to me
You're shying away, I see
You can say bye to this ass in velvet
What? Do you expect a kiss?
Not on these leather-draped shoulders
Come back when you're done with this

It was maddening to hear.
But you can't even hear it.
No... You can't hear it... it's just me.
Just me being... me. And at the same time, not me.
I have autism.
Which means some of the things I say are irreverent to others.
Yet I know what words my mouth forms.
... being moved by others.
The way they talk with their bodies.
It's like a different language to me.
I try to grasp what they mean, and vice versa.
Only to be corrected by them. Again.
Always. Always. Always.
Don't eat it, even when my body says doesn't need it.
Don't touch it, even when my body knows it'll hurt if I do.
Until everything draws to a close.

The sun felt good on his tanned skin, the noise made by the others as they played Volleyball in the ocean not once disturbing him. Karen was sleeping and as such, Jim had his head on her back. It was a sunny day and the others decided to go swimming. 'One good idea they've had.' Jim thought, chuckling when he heard Judai yell out. Johan must have picked her up or something.
He was just about to welcome dream land, when little drops of water starting landing on him. Opening his one good eye, Jim looked up into dark forest green ones. Kenzan stood over him, her yellow bikini standing out against her dark skin. He chuckled at the little dinos on the bikini. She grinned and grabbed his arm, pulling him up.
"Come on, Jim! Don't be a wet blanket! Even O'Brian is in the water!"
Jim let himself be dragged to the water, enjoying the view of the water falling down Kenzan's body.
Oh, yeah. The beach was a very good idea.

Kahan leaned forwards intently as he studied the screen before him, his eyes scanning the lines of text broken by forced depth images as he absorbed the information. He'd never had access to the Jedi Temple's archives before this, his master had never brought him to Coruscant before for that matter. He frowned as he found what he was looking for, rubbing his chin thoughtfully. He was so intent on his studies that he didn't realize someone was watching him until they'd slung themselves around his shoulders.
“Hey, we're Jedi now you know.”
He smiled, looking to the side at Guo-Jia as she smirked at him.
“Technically we've been Jedi, we're just Knights now instead of Padawan.”
She snorted and tightened her arm's grip around his neck.

"Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it." – Unknown
I've heard that to say "I forgive you" is the hardest thing to say to a person next to "I'm sorry" and "I love you."
Strange; apologizing and giving forgiveness is as essential to my day as breathing.
I lean my head back against your door; snowy white hair slipping off my shoulders and water-falling down my back. The hallway is dark, shadows consuming every bit of it; including myself. I close my eyes and just imagine your light breathing; your face relaxed and pale lips free of that ever-present scowl. You're so peaceful when you sleep, you have no worries and all your anger just vanishes; I know, I can feel it. I also know… that sometimes you wish you would just never wake up…

In the spacious recreational room of the Mother of Invention, an English man with a trimmed brown beard stood around off to the side as he watched a couple of the other agents duke it out in a makeshift training session. He turned around to the coffee maker behind him and started pouring himself a much needed mug of the black liquid. “I’ll put twenty on Wash ending up in the infirmary,” he spoke out while filling his mug.
A brunette woman ducked past the scuffle as she joined Agent Michigan by the coffee maker. “And I’m betting on the fact that Maine will be the cause of that,” she added her thoughts, looking at the tussling boys just in time to see Maine land a punch to Washington’s gut, the blonde man keeling over.

Silence all around. The first snigger was from Sjin, then Sips. Then everyone. Rumbles of laughter echoed around the room, quiet snickers barely audiable.
The only one not even smiling was Simon. Anger was beginning to bubble up inside of him as his friends laughed harder.

Everything went as quiet as it had been in the beginning. No one so much as breathed.
