EnglandXReader: Lessons In LoveLights flashed. Blue. Purple. Green.
The room wavered as the lights danced on the walls. The music beat against The blonde's ears as he made his way deeper into the sea of people. The people felt like they were closing in, swallowing him in their rhythmic dancing and pulsing auras.
It was a different experience for Arthur, being in the thick of the crowd. When Alfred or Francis even managed to get him into a place like this he usually stuck to the outskirts of the dance floor, he preferred his space out there. Often times he kept to the shadows, standing along the walls. There it was secluded, and quiet (despite the raring music) and he could actually think there. Besides, most of the tables stood alone, away from the crowd, making for an easy escape when he got bored. Tonight, however, was different. He had caught a glimpse of something. He had seen something that he hadn't expected to ever see there, something that had become the

"Come on Arthur!" She said at me. I went up and walked towards her. She grabbed my gloved hand in her own gloved hands and dragged me to the clear field filled with fresh untouched snow.
"Come on Arthur let's dance!" She cheered pulling me into the middle of th field and placing her hand on my shoulder and the other firmly in my hand.
"Love, you want to dance here?" I asked smiling softly at her.
"Come on Arthur, please?" She asked looking at me, her (e/c) eyes glistening softly from the dim sunlight peeking through the thick grey clouds. I put my hand on her waist and began dancing in the fallen snow.
She looked up at me and smiled causing me to blush.

Missed You Madly- England/ReaderArthur let a small sigh expell from between his bitten lips, sinking further into the yeilding confines of the sofa. Between ink-stained fingers he cradled an ancient book, one from a time he couldn't recall (though he doubted he'd actually want to, in retrospect). He let his pale hands ghost over the yellowed pages and faded words, drinking them in with his darkened eyes and savouring the warm evening light flooding through the window. It was fragrant and sultry, the windows thrown wide open and allowing the perfumed aroma of roses to filter through into the cozy sitting-room. The entire expanse seemed to glow gold and shades of amber, radient light spilling across the scratched leather sofa and surfaces like molten gold. The sky was littered with a few wisps of clouds, the rest like a water-colour painting in it's entirety as yellow faded to dusky pink and then to saffron orange. One graceful, languid hand swept away a shaggy fringe, Arthur's eyes flitting shut for a moment in thoughMissed You Madly- England/Reader2 years ago in Romance More Like This

And promptly rolled off the side in shock.
Groaning, you rubbed the back of your head and peeked over your chair to see your two best friends, Lana and Alfred, running over to you from Lana's backyard. You rolled your eyes and slumped back onto the ground, waiting for them to reach you.
"Dudette, what are you doing?" Alfred asked, kneeling on the chair and looking down at you.
"Attempting to find out if my eardrums are still completely intact."
"Well they must be," Lana said, grinning. "Because you answered him right away, didn't you?"
"Yeah, totally! So you're all good!"
"I hope you guys realize that you're the reason I was contemplating the state of my hearing." They both just grinned at you and each grabbed one of your arms, hoisting you up and dragging you away from your precious chair.

Forever and Always- EnglandxReaderAlthough Arthur had endured his fair share of war and conflict, some scars were acquired from battles he'd never fought; mental rather than physical, unseen yet still there, lingering in the back of his mind like ominous storm-clouds because he couldn't stand to face them. They weren't caused by trauma, not from the psychological torture that came hand-in-hand with events of his past, they were simply things he couldn't come to terms with. They were all the things he wished to forget, paranoia and nightmares that haunted him every time he closed his eyes, the guilt and regret and even hints of the ruthlessness that had consumed his mind as an arrogant pirate captain- It was difficult enough watching everyone he'd ever cherished die or abandon him, but his own mind destroyed him more than normal wounds ever could; it had started to accumulate after his beloved Elizabeth had died, after Alfred left, after the horrors of the world wars that had tested him more than he could ever knForever and Always- EnglandxReader2 years ago in Romance More Like This

This day hadn’t sucked.
Frankly, you were stunned.
Sure, you had seen a little PDA, but surprisingly not much. And all of your friends had gone out of their way to make you little gifts. They even knew you didn’t celebrate, and wouldn’t expect anything in return.
It was sweet.
But still, the day made you think. It made you think about a lot of different little things that made you both want to laugh, and cry.
The emotions you were feeling right now were probably making you extremely unstable. Yet you felt extremely calm.
Even so, you found yourself out late at night, going to try something new. It was something you had been wondering about for a while, and were finally going to take a crack at.
Now you sat, atop this building, overlooking the river. Your legs dangled over the edge, but you knew you wouldn’t fall. Being pretty far back, your lower legs were practically against the wall.

A Stirring Turn of Events
Before moving to England to live with your boyfriend Arthur Kirkland, you had loved the rain; however, ever since you had moved, your tolerance for it had grown thin. It seemed as if almost every day was spent inside watching rain pelt your little town just outside of London. You sighed, turning your back to the window.
"So, in a stirring turn of events, it's raining outside." You informed Arthur. He looked up from his book and raised one of his bushy eyebrows.
"Is that so?" He asked in a monotone.
"Not that I dislike living here with you, Artie, but does it have rain every day? I mean l can only take so much this."
"Well, what would you like me to do about it, love? I can't just change the weather." He responded looking back at his book.
"I know. Sorry, I'm just a little restless from being coped up inside all the time." You said, turning back towards the window. The rain was coming down even harder now. Your poor little backyard was being poun

"It was my pleasure," Arthur responded warmly. "After all," he added, looking at you with a smile in his emerald eyes,"it was only what any proper gentleman would do."
You smiled back at him shyly, but your heart was fluttering inside your chest. Others would call Arthur Kirkland "cold", "cynical", and "snide", but even from the relatively short time you had known him, you knew that under the surface, he could be as sweet and gentle as any other man. You harbored hopes inside of you, small but bright, that he would some day return your affection for him. But sometimes, you wondered if he ever would look at you romantically after your strong friendship.

You didn't know what happened. One moment you were driving down the highway and the next, you were in the ditch, pain ripping through your body as you sat cramped in a sorry excuse for a vehicle. Moving was not an option, it hurt too much, but your head could shift slightly. It was just enough to take in your surroundings. The dash was crumpled and pinned your legs, the airbag was stained red from where your head used to lay and you could feel an itch at your forehead. Above you, the roof was dented quite thoroughly. Absently you thanked your mother's genes for making you short.
