Waiting Up: Part 1It was nearly three in the morning, and Anthony couldn't sleep. He felt stupid admitting it, but it was strange, knowing that Ian wasn't sleeping in the next room over. He rolled over onto his side, staring absently at the wall. He wondered what Ian was doing. He probably didn't want to know. Ian was out with God, he couldn't even remember her name. That girl Ian was dating, anyway. They'd only been seeing each other for a little over a month, and already Ian was spending nearly every other night at her house. Anthony wondered what would happen if one day Ian never came home. What if he decided to move in with her? What would happen to Smosh? What would happen to their friendship?Waiting Up: Part 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He rolled back onto his stomach, frustrated with himself. He was twenty-three years old, for fuck's sake; he should be able to go to sleep without his best friend there. And yet he felt incredibly lonely knowing he was alone in the house. They'd been sharing the house for years; An
PhasesIan was always going through phases.Phases3 years ago in Humor More Like This
Anthony never understood it. It seemed like every few weeks Ian would latch onto something an idea, a habit, an activity, sometimes even a person and become completely obsessed with it. Anthony could never figure out how these phases started; Ian's mind was a mystery to him sometimes.
Some of them were normal. Anthony could remember Ian's weight-lifting phase, his classical music phase, his phase of only buying groceries that were on sale. Nothing weird there. Even some of his more drastic ones still fell within the realm of normality, like when he decided that he wouldn't drive anywhere that he could walk to within an hour.
Some of his other phases were a little more odd. There was that time when he refused to take showers for three weeks straight, opting for a bubble bath every night instead. There was his short-lived attempt to only eat foods that were red. And there was that baffling phase where Ian had refused to sleep in hi

"Wha?" Ian said, jerking out of his state of half-sleep. He realized the car was about to drift off the road. "Shit!" He jerked the wheel to the left, pulling them back onto the highway.
"Now that you've almost gotten us killed, can we please stop for the night?" Anthony asked, sighing tiredly.
"No, we're almost home," Ian replied, rubbing his eyes.
"It's still an hour and a half away," Anthony said, frustrated. "Neither of us is awake enough to drive for that long. Just turn off on the next exit and we'll get a motel."
Ian yawned. "Alright, alright, fine. I could use some sleep anyway."
"No kidding," Anthony muttered. Ian turned off the highway, onto some small-town road.
"Where the fuck are we?" he murmured.
"We'll figure that out tomorrow," Anthony said. "There's a motel sign up there, let's just a get a fucking room."
"Someone's cranky when they don't get their sleep," Ian said, smirking. He pulled into the parking lot.

It seemed as if I couldn't remember why I had gone to the painting in the first place. All I remembered was coming to the art gallery because my mom and dad had made me come with them and looking at different parts of the gallery until I came to this painting...after that it was all blank. 'It's like a piece memory is missing.' I thought. I sighed and pinched the bridge of my nose. "You're as forgetful as ever." I said quietly to myself.
I started to walk away from the hall the painting was displayed in. When I realized that I hadn't gotten a good look at the painting, I spun around to look at it again. To my amazement and surprise, the painting was gone.
The hall that the painting hung in wasn't even there anymore. The place where it was just showed the other side of the art gallery.

For minutes, all Tifa could see, was a black and yellow flurry, dancing around the house at (an inhuman) top speed, like an angry and dangerous typhoon. It was a good thing that the children were still upstairs, because Marlene would probably get a little scared of the blonde man's actions and Denzel might even go far enough to actually mimic him, since Cloud had always been his great example. She sighed, wearily, because she knew that it would start in three... two... one...
And there you had it, Tifa thought almost triumphantly, a small smirk gracing her lips.
Cloud was so predictable sometimes that it was almost funny, especially because he still didn't believe so when she told him sometimes.

Glancing at the big blue sky, hazel-brown orbs watched the clouds passed by. There was no sun in sight, keeping the temperature at the right warmth. Letting out another yawn, Tsuna hummed feeling a gentle breeze brushed by as he rolled to the side. The weather was so nice, and he got nothing to do (beside watching and guarding the place of course). Might as well get some sleep, it's been a long time since he could have some time alone afterall.

PART FOUR OF MISCHIEF WITH VASH
France had been a little creepier then normal when you'd returned to work on Monday, if only because you had decided to wear trousers instead of a skirt and he kept spying on you. It was as if he was suddenly very afraid, though after being dragged in to listen to the threats on the phone left by Austria, who still could not believe he'd lost the case, you shook your head and continued with the paperwork. During the course of the morning, France had stayed beside you and double-checked you were doing everything he asked of you and even questioning you about what had happened at the bar. You never answered that, it was unprofessional, but after an incident with one of the girls in the photocopier room, you ended up going down to the cafeteria for a coffee break whilst France got a lecture from his boss about inappropriate behaviour.
To your surprise, Switzerland had been there and though you had assumed he would have ignored you, he ended up sitting with

Still, Dick is inordinately proud of the fact that he sticks to only whistling the next few songs, with maybe a little hip shake or two. When the last track on the playlist comes on, though, it's not so much a time for words as as it to give in to the music and just dance.

Karin asked herself again why she was there. In the human world she'd done everything possible to ignore or remove the effects of her high spiritual energy - seeing spirits, fighting hollows, she didn't want any of it. She wasn't her brother, and where as he felt the compassion to save every lost and lonely soul out there, they scared her, she felt their pain too much and it became her own, which only lead her to become angry at herself and her lack of care. So why the hell had she enrolled in the Shinigami Academy?
Oh yeah, because the real world sucked. As a child being a tomboy had suited her like the stars to the night - guys were simple, they were funny and they liked playing football. They didn't try to do pretty things in your hair that left it in knots, or plaster you in play make up but at high school life got harder. Suddenly it was awkward playing sport with t

The intended effect of Robin cowering in fear is lost as his words are punctuated by a coughing fit. (Never mind that Robin never actually cowers at anything Batman says. Sickness allows Bruce a measure of plausible deniability, if nothing else.)
"That's quite a cough you've got there, big guy." Dick's indulgent grin would be more appropriate as bestowed by guardian to ward rather than the reverse, not that Bruce ever smiles at anyone indulgently. "I bet Penguin's goons will be terrified."

The look on his face is priceless…
His lips are parted and his crimson eyes are wide open. His hand in Nezumi’s palm barely has any gripping force and he looks, absolutely dazzled.
This is the first time Shion has ever seen the sea.
After a two hours walk through a meadow of green wheat and some light hiking, they have finally reached their destination. Nezumi stands next to Shion with a backpack on his back, a hand in his beige short’s pocket, the other holding onto Shion’s so he wouldn’t fall flat on his face with his all consuming daze. There is a mild, salty breeze licking the knee high grass on the hill they are standing. Nezumi’s raven bangs dance in the wind and he raises his free hand to keep them from his eyes as he watches Shion gape at the sunlight drenched ocean before them expanding as far as the eyes could see.
Nezumi has accidentally forgotten to mention that he was taking Shion to the sea. And that’s the reason Shion c

Bruce's bellowing comes close. Because it sounds nothing like a raging Batman, or Brucie Wayne on the rampage in the company boardroom. Sentences break, twisting into cracked fragments, and words falter into shaky growls; this is a side of Bruce that only Dick and Alfred are allowed to see -- open, raw, exposed.
Only Dick has the privilege of knowing this Bruce, intimately. Tim and the others grab at flickers, in the secret looks that sometimes pass between Dick and Bruce, when they think nobody's looking, or in the intimate moments that are inadvertently walked in on. (Inadvertently for Tim. Damian might just do it on purpose.)
This is the true Bruce, laid completely bare during these fights, and he's matched entirely by the narrow-eyed, pinch-lipped Dick who lurks dee

Countless questions ran through my mind none of them mattered as much as the one that slipped through my young lips, "Hibari-san is that really-" he cut me off with slender finger pressed to my lips, "I told you to call me Kyoya." I smiled up at him as he engulfed me in a bone crushing hug. It was one of those rare moments when he let go of his pride and showed me the affection he usually held in.
"So you're back?" I asked in a gentle loving tone, one reserved for my two lovers. He pulled away, "I should say that, you died first." He stated monotonely but I could hear the hidden emotion, something only me and Mukuro could detect. 'First huh, that means he died too.' He leaned back down to take my lips in a sweet, slow kiss but gradually it heated up. I pulled back for air and just as he swooped down for more I blocked his oncoming lips with my hands.

The first time Dick said this, earlier that day, Bruce thought it was referring to him. Considering he was wearing the Batsuit at the time, it was more than a little surreal. Mommy is a definite first as far as names the Batman has been called go.

It isn't enough, though: Dick frowns, and puts his hands up, clearly asking to be taken out of the cart. Perhaps it's better not to indulge him, but Bruce does so, anyway. Dick at this age is terribly small, fitting easily into Bruce's big, clumsy arms.

The day was set to be a scorcher. The sky was clear, bringing no relief to the endless heat that plagued Karakura Town. Those that had the luxury of air conditioning had suddenly found themselves with dozens of requests from friends who had none. The local swimming centres were packed full of families determined to get out of their hot houses and out to some place that was hopefully not as warm. The heat was forecast to last at least another week, creating despair for those who despised the heat.
