Because Thats What Humans AreYou asked me,Because Thats What Humans Are6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Why people were insane
Why is everyone so vain
Why cant we just
Forget the pain
And live for today.
We fight for peace
We live to die
We love to hate
We bleed to death
We tend to cry,
We do things wrong,
But we make it right.
Because that's what humans are for.
Akali and ShenAkali looks over the piece of paper with a sigh. How could things go this far? How could things get so out of hand? She knew it wasn't right, but she'd let it run it's course, and now things were becoming real. They were becoming difficult to deal with, even. She'd never backed down when faced with a challenge, and she wouldn't now, but in the back of her mind, she was aware that she could have single-handedly prevented the whole thing with just a simple 'no, thank you'. But no; she had to be curious, she had to push things a step further, and she'd ended up here, with a piece of paper in her hand orders to meet with the head of the Kinkou immediately.Akali and Shen4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As much as she attempted to deny it, the girl knew exactly what it was about. She could make up excuses as to why he wanted to meet with her all day and probably well into the night, but they would hold no water over the one thing that stuck out in her mind: she'd been seen, trapped in an intimate kiss with a man who'd worked alon

We are the Word ThievesWe writers are criminals.We are the Word Thieves6 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But we are the best kind of criminals.
We steal words.
We'll never be punished, for we are always needed. Whether through the speech of ever deceitful humans, or through the mute tongues of print and screen, we will always be there, working our many-pronged magic. Our swords are constantly out, skewering towards the alphabet with such regularity that the words stand proud, only to bow to our will, bleeding emotion to our clients.
For we are the Word Thieves, and the words are our quarry.
Even if the censors come and try to clamp us down, we'll disappear into the shadows and reveal our true beauty. It is here we show how we don't need a wave from a wand or a wish from the human mind to transform into our heart's desires, when all the answers can be written in a twist of a pen.
And when we transform, we rule Heaven and Earth.
We are the pirates that traverse the word-filled seas, setting sail with the wind and waves. Through storm and sun, our sail is splashed w
His Beloved (Prussia x Reader part 2)It had been quite some time.. many tears were shed, many laughs and smiles slipped through, much pain had been endured, yet Gilbert could not forget what he'd done to lose his beloved.

He was able to keep his mind occupied, but when all was said and done she was still there, always in the back of his mind.
On this particular day, Gilbert was sitting on a bench in the park. It had become a regular pastime for him, just sitting there and people-watching.
“Hi,” Said a very familiar voice.
“__-____! What are you doing here?” Gilbert asked, trying not to sound overexcited. “I mean, hey. What’s up?”
_____ sensed the embarrassment in his voice and giggled. “I just came to enjoy the day.. and stuff. You?” she sat down on the bench Gilbert was sitting on.

immortal, immobile, and empty
perhaps it was a god
an immortal impeccable being
who in eternity is fleeing
the dying lonely lack of love
an infinite being from above
who lowers himself to this state of
simply watching, only being.
This rock, this god so powerful,
alone, locked in his tower, dull,
so impotent in mind.
At heart, my god, how lonely are you?
How do you survive
knowing when all else is dead that
you will be alive?
When you know everything, my god,
how do you spend your time?
And do you ever find it odd
that we want what is thine?
Perhaps it's death you envy
which is life's eternal goal.
Perhaps that's why you're empty.
Is that why you lack a soul?
What if death is not so bad,
but compliments the life?
giving up all that you had
increases it's worth thrice.
In that case, rock, I do not envy you,
but envy me.
Because I have so much to lose
which adds to life's beauty.
The greatest wealth, my greatest pride

Gaining consciousness, you feel a warmth encasing your body; opening your eyes, you come face to face with a certain sleeping Prussian. He looked so adorable! His sleeping face reminded you of the episodes in World Series when ChibiPrussia was introduced. Still asleep, Gilbert mumbles something in German and pulls you closer to his body, his arms wrapped around your waist and lower back. Needless to say, your face matched his eyes; your body stiffens as his lips brush against your cheek, damn him!
"Gil-Gilbert. H-hey, wake up." You place a hand on his chest, your arms were kind of stuck there, and gently shake him. Damn he felt nice, if this was a dream, you would have tried to wake him up a different way. (Wink, wink).

A History of ImaginariumWhen we were young, we believed. In myths, in legends, in stories beyond the wildest imagination of the best story teller in the world. Tomorrow always held surprises, new stories, and new worlds for our imaginations to explore. Everything began with 'Once upon a time' and ended with 'Happily ever after.' We lived in a land where we all owned pet tyrannosaurus rexes, maybe a few dragons, a sword that rivaled Excalibur and faeries and pixies, who just happened to make great playmates.

Lovino always watched you from afar. Always wishing you would notice him, and not his stupid fratello. You and Feliciano were the best of friends, always spending time together. But, you barely ever looked twice at him, you only had eyes for Feliciano. So, Lovino assumed you were in love with his brother. One day when he got home, Lovino walked through the door to see you sitting on the couch, alone. And there was no sound of the bubbly fratello in the house.
"Where's stupid fratello?" he asked closing the door. You turned and smirked at him
"Well hello there to you too Lovino." you say sarcastically. Lovino tried hard not to smile, and you didn't notice. You stood up and started walking over to him. "Feliciano is out at the store buying some things." You placed your hands on your hips, "And he's not stupid."
"Whatever." Lovino said taking his jacket off and lazily putting it on the coat rack. When you thought he wasn't looking, you rubbed your nose slightly

Originally, you had plans to go out with a couple of friends to see a movie, but all of a sudden, a horrible storm had come across the town you lived in, causing all of the roads to flood. At least you were warm and cozy with some hot chocolate!
"There's nothing to watch eh, I guess we'll watch this," you said to yourself, stopping on a movie channel. It was currently showing "The Phantom Of The Opera", and it was barely starting. You cringed when you heard a thunderclap outside your door followed by a flash of lightning. "Damn, it's raining cats and dogs out there "

I could be invisible.
No one would notice me
And I could wallow
In my own self pity.
Like a ghost.
I sure seem invisible to you.
I'm not important enough
Or maybe I'm not good enough.
Would you even notice
If I simply slipped from humanity
For a little while
And lived under a rock
With the dirt and bugs.
I guess that's where I belong
To you I'm lower than dirt.
So maybe if I was invisible
Just for a day
The world would be ok.

He told you it reminded him of his late mother who made things with Romano cheese and tomatoes (his two favorite ingredients) a lot. He didn't really want people to call him "Tomato" (though his cousin, Antonio, did so anyways) so he stuck with Romano. Why this crossed your mind, you didn't know.

You were always a dreamer. Always. Ever since you were little, you enjoyed watching movies, watching TV shows, playing video games, and reading books to escape from reality. You loved magic and surreal things, sometimes wishing that you lived in those worlds and not the mundane life that you led. You frequently read stories of heroic feats, magical fantasies, sweet romance, and so much more; you wrote as many stories like those too.
However, just because you dreamed doesn't mean that you were always spaced out or stuff like that. No, in fact, you were actually pretty smart as well as perceptive of how others felt, and you knew when to pay attention. It was just that reality bored you. All those amazing stories, shows, and games just seemed so...exciting. You wanted that excitement in your life. You've heard your elders say that 'life is what you make of it' and that 'every day is an adventure; you just have to make
