Sebastian was waiting for Moriarty's return. He would continue forth with his daily routine, constantly expecting Jim to sidle up alongside him with that grin of his, hat pulled down low over his sunglass clad eyes, a hand tugging on Seb's arm, dragging him home, giving him a new assignment.
It had been three weeks to date since Jim's little feature.
Sebastian wasn't worried yet. Why should he be? His boss would do this quite frequently, vanishing for months at a time on some sudden whim of his fancy. Whether it was to take down a target or because a new hobby had captured his interest for a short period, sending him dancing around the globe to collect them all.
It had been three months to date since Jim's little exposé.
Sebastian still wasn't worried about his boss, but there was this feeling in the pit of his stomach, much like a lead ball weighing him down.
He made certain to jog by Jim's
Dance Dance - SherlockSebastian and Jim were at a bar, celebrating their victory over the last case. Sebastian could hold his liquor reasonably well, but later in the night he found he actually couldn't hold his liquor, and he actually dropped it all over the floor. At this realization he only giggled and took another sip of his beer.Dance Dance - Sherlock2 years ago in Humor More Like This
And then, Dance Dance by Fall Out Boy started to play on the radio in the background in the bar and Sebastian jumped up excitedly, nearly losing his footing. "Oh shit, I love this song!" He cried to the rest of the drunk people in the bar and Jim, who was only a little tipsy and the radio that was only background music earlier got cranked up. Sebastian started singing along with the song just as they hit the chorus, nearly butchering the song in his drunken state.
He even attempted to get on a table and start dancing, but soon found out that gravity decided that the ground was a much better place to be right then. He bobbed his head to the music and danced around on the floor

The Mother of Invention was silent.
Everyone knew why.
And nobody had the will to protest the silence.
Ever since The Incident, the break-in at Freelancer Command, nothing had been the same. Gone were the missions. Gone were the training schedules. Gone was the manic need to prove yourself, to gain approval from Director Church. And gone were the agents that made Project Freelancer what it was.
Texas went AWOL. York went AWOL with Texas (nobody saw that coming). Maine went on an Insane Killing Spree. North and South were Missing In Action. Who the hell knew, where Wyoming was? Carolina was...
Carolina was... "Lost to us while attempting to secure the objective" as the Director put it, stoic as ever.

Grabbing the apples on the tray, the country mare inspected the fruits intently which grew a smirk on the Wonderbolt's face. Although it was not the most romantic scene he had in mind, Soarin enjoyed his time with the orange pony. Not use to seeing her as dolled up as she was in the Grand Galloping Gala a few years ago, he appreciated her wholesome look. Her hat tipped slightly which had her push it back up. Soarin soon found himself face to face with two apples that she held out.
"Bruises," she announced, shaking her head, "Bruises all over these apples. What're they doin' with 'em? Playin' baseball and usin' them as balls?" Applejack looked down timidly and set her food down on the table. "My 'pologies. It's the inner farmer in me."

Dawn was fast approaching in Ponyville, with everypony still asleep... except for one.
In a clearing not far from Sugarcube Corner, Pinkie Pie stood next to a large contraption while leafing through a hard-bound book. Eventually, she found what she was looking for, and closed it, reading the title on its cover once more: "Winged Species of Equestria."
It would serve her well. Then again, most the books she borrowed from Twilight usually did.
After placing the book inside the contraption's side basket, she hopped on its seat, placed her hind hooves on its pedals, and used them for their intended purpose. The contraption's wheels turned, allowing her to roll, as she steered straight ahead with her front hooves, first along a smooth meadow, and then down a speed-yielding hill.
Once she was satisfied with her acceleration, she made sure the path before her was clear, and then moved one front hoof from the vehicle's secondary controls. With a pull of levers, the adjustments she had recently

I look around them and see nothing but looks of shock.
Then Blond Boy (aka Cloud) speaks up. "Yes. But the ones we normally see don't talk." I look at them surprised.
Really? Well what the hell kinda corpses do you see?
Dead ones. Cid muttered, his mouth

It was a calm, yet cold day in Ponyville. The weather team had done a fine job with weather conditions lately. The week had been filled with the warm sun shining over the snow covered landscape; making it glitter in the sunlight. In the distance, Canterlot could be seen shimmering in the sunlight as if it was frozen in time and space. The sight was one to behold as the white marble walls of the royal castle appeared like a second sun on the horizon.
Ponyville was just a couple of days away from the traditional Winter Wrap Up. Everyone was busy preparing their homes and tools for the job. Applejack spent the last couple of days fixing the damages the plows had sustained during the last Winter Wrap Up, but was struggling to get it done. The equipment was much more totaled than originally thought. Rainbow Dash, on her vacation day, even joined in on Applejack's endeavors by keeping the sky clear of clouds so that the work could

Many things do, broadly speaking, in the sense of being heralded by some foreboding omen or harbinger of fate. Whether it is the sound of trumpets commanding the first march to war, or a levitating stranger with technicolour wings come to tell you awkwardly about that metaphysical one-night-stand you didn't know you'd had, it was strange how great happenings tended to bring their own thunder before the lightning – and unlike more invisible instigators of doom, they almost always went down in the history books.
And so this, as well, began with a tinkle.
This particular tinkle chimed inoffensively from the little brass bell hung against the door and served as a very reliable sign of potentially great annoyances in the uncomfortably close future. If the little brass bell were sentient enough to understand how the sound of it ringing had come to be loathed, and had tear ducts, it would weep.

I closed my eyes for a moment, holding the rail of the command deck. My yeoman's eyes examined me, I knew it. A deep breath surged through my lungs, I had never felt so betrayed before. Not by anyone, never ever.
He had yelled at me in front of my squad, telling me that I had betrayed the Alliance and didn't even notify him of being alive. Hell! I had been dead for two years! How could I?! With some telepathic magic hocus pocus stuff?

Dance In The Dark EpilogueRio de Janeiro was as beautiful as her father had always said it was. Crystal smiled as she surveyed the area from her high perch, which was the head of the Christ the Redeemer statue over looking the city. She didn't think she'd ever get tired of such a view; the lights of the city were magic reflecting off the water. Climbing the statue was amazingly easy, now that she knew how to use her powers. When Mael had asked her where she'd planned to go when Adrian deemed her "trained" he'd seemed pleased by her decision, but made her swear to check in every week, which she'd done without fail. He'd made it very clear that she was on probation. She couldn't complain, ever since she'd come here the nights had been very quiet.

"Sorry, but this is your last hunt." A quiet voice came from the black garbed speaker; it was unforgiving, cold, and angry. He was stunned, and tried to run, but he wasn't fast enough. It had been too long since he'd fed and it slowed him down. He found himself suddenly skewered with a long, sharp piece of wood up under his ribcage. It was a quick death, his assailant made sure of that.
The figure looked down at the prone body of the male vampire and growled, "Number 5 . . . I wonder how many more?" A knife flashed out and mutilated the body efficiently. It should be found tonight, but, if not, the shadows from the alley and dumpster would keep it from burning away until it was found. A hand came down, holding a small car
