Lina just stood with her eyes wide. " W-when did this happen?!?"
"Oh I'd say it was around the time Luna was discovered to be the Cepheid Knight." Aqua giggled. "Milgasia was one of the dragons that saw to her training, his connection happened back then."
The crimson haired sorceress rubbed her head. "She never mentioned it then. Funny though we both end up being Soul Touches to ancients from the War of the Monster's fall." She teased.
Milgasia just closed his eyes with a sigh. "That might be my fault as I never told her."
"YOU WHAT?!?" Lina cried, her eyes wide. "Milgasia are you nuts?! Do you have any idea how much I thought this idiot was a fruitcake for the way he was acting which only just now some of his damn actions made sense finding this out!" she jolted her finger to point at Xelloss. "At least this dumbass had a gag order, what was your excuse?"
"Well, due to her struggles with Cepheid I didn't want to pressure her knowing." The Golden Dragon shrugged his shoulde
The Rebel and his AngelI was always the weird kid at school. The rebel. I didn't play by the rules, which wasn't the District One way. I shunned the luxury and pampering and struck out on my own, training in the alley behind the Training Centre while all the others threw spears and battled with swords like sheep. Well, they could be the sheep. I was the tiger.The Rebel and his Angel4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I started dating Glimmer because of the rumours that I was gay. I wasn't. All the girls I'd ever met just weren't up to my ideals is all. Glimmer didn't either, to be perfectly honest; she was too perfect, too eager to please. I wasn't what she was searching for either but we both used each-other mercilessly, each praying that the partner of our dreams would show up at some point. They didn't. So we remained a couple.
A week before the Reaping, Glimmer and I are in my room, kissing. We are partly doing it to convince my parents that we are actually together, but are also doing it because we're teenagers and like to kiss. So, yeah.

"So why exactly are your soldiers searching for me anyway, your highness?" Lina huffed, crossing her arms. "I'm getting tired of waiting for an answer here."
"Quite simple, I wish for you to join my forces." King Well said with a smirk.
"Huh? Why would you want her?" Memphis rubbed her head. "I mean this woman's know all around for destruction and trouble."
"Hey don't say that about me when you've only known me a few hours!" Lina snapped.
"Though it sounds like she has your number " Zangulus chimed in.
"WHO ASKED YOU?!?" she snapped.
"You will kindly keep your attention focused." The green haired general hissed.
Lina twisted her mouth, there was something oddly familiar about that woman "So why me?" she shrugged. "Though I have no plans to tie myself down to a kingdom of all things. So I'm probably gonna say no anyway But I expect compensation for the trouble your soldiers caused, or perhaps we can spread the word how badly you give orders." She grinned.

It stuck cleanly at the center of an assortment of red and white circles. Lucinda, a maiden of seventeen with night black hair and dark chocolate eyes notched another arrow into the taught string of her bow. The black and red arrow shot past fifty yards of trees and shrubbery to pierce the back of the previous arrow, splitting it in half.
Lucinda allowed her arms to fall. "What a waste," she murmured. "I'll have to make more, I suppose."

The scent of eggs and bacon got its way from the kitchen to Maka's open bedroom door. Just by the smell of it completely woken Soul up.
He had already been awake starting from the point Maka had gotten up and left the room to make breakfast, but he stayed in bed, It was his first time staying in Maka's room, and it was the first time he had slept in her bed. It was warm and more comfortable than his own. Moreover, it had Maka's sweet scent.
He hugged the pillow Maka was using last night and took a whiff of it. He couldn't pin point what the scent was but it was sweet, and it was Maka's. It was a scent he would never forget even if he tried. The times he had with her has been special and memorable, and he remembers every second of it.
"I wonder if Maka still remembers the day we met," he mumbled while taking one last whiff of her pillow.
The albino finally sat up and stretched his long, semi-muscular arms. He was becoming a lazy bum lately and barely exercise at all

"Years have past. So many years, that I hardly remember a time before you... a time before us. We are older, faster, stronger, and for some, taller. Sometimes wiser, but not even close to being as wise as we could be, as we need to be. But that's alright, because every day I learn new things, and I learn them because of you. You are my light, my inspiration, and my world. Without you I am nothing, and with you I will never fall again."
Tsubaki was in the kitchen making lunch when Black Star walked in puffing slightly with a sweat rag over one shoulder. He had been working out for most of the day and was just going to take a short break for lunch. He sat down with a thump and sat back contentedly. He watched his partner as she busied herself with preparing the meal. When she was done, she turned and plopped two plates of delicate sandwiches onto the table (Black Star's portion was three times the size of hers) and smiled,
Forget him. Love, AphroditeWithout thinking I charged towards the shore and into the water till I was thigh deep in. It was about fifty something degrees in the water and I immediately began shaking. Not caring whether bystanders would hear me I screamed till my lungs went dry, "Percy Jackson! Where are you?" That was it; I couldn't stand another day without knowing where he is. I dropped into the water on my knees lifelessly getting my clothing soaked. I stared out at the still sea, it was dark and a half moon hovered above me. With one last breath of air that smelled just like Percy, I stood back up and headed back towards the safe house.Forget him. Love, Aphrodite5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Soon I saw a blue green hazy light against the sand. Like an aquarium reflects against a wall. A voice called, "A-Annabeth?" Turning around on the spot, there he stood in the water. "Percy!"

"Shush, shush. It's alright, I'm here," Maka comforted and gently patted Soul on the head. Was he ever afraid of storms?
This day had really been troublesome for both Soul and Maka, and probably even for Blair. And right now, it wasn't even past seven at night but the two teenagers currently ended up being in the same bed in Maka's room. Maka shut her eyes closed as she held her puppy friend close to her. Her head rumbled with thoughts of how they ended up in this position in the first place.
A soft blush appeared across her face and she squeezed Soul, making him rest his head on Maka's soft and still underdeveloped chest. She had to admit, she was a little thankful for being flat or else she would be suffocating Soul right about now. But before she would actual end up squeezing him to that extent, she decided to think of something else. But no matter what she thought about, it just brought her

He shunned the room for the weeks following her burial and basically anything that reminded him of her.

He began with brushing off the desk where a collage of family photos stood. He skimmed by them before darting his eyes elsewhere, afraid that at any moment, her smiling face would send him back into the abyss.
It was still hard to believe that not but a month ago were they sharing a bed, and now he was avoiding it. He didn't want to prolong this any more than he had to. Soul found the vacuum buried deep in their shared closet and swept up whatever dust jumped out at him. He wasn't going to go into any sort of deep cleaning. Not just yet.
He surprised himself in how immersed he became in cleaning. He lasted maybe a whole ten

General Language Notes
1) Insults. Mostly, these come in the form of impolite pronouns. Words like kisama and yarou arent technically dirty names, theyre just very impolite. Occasionally, as is the case with school children, these can become as creative as most American insults, ranging from impugning a persons intelligence to impugning their direct genetic makeup.
2) Plurals. The only way of expressing plural (aside from using numbers) is with a special noun ending. The suffix -tachi is the polite way of doing this; it expresses a group of things. For instance, Bob-san-tachi means Bob and whoever happens to be associated with him by context this could mean all the people sitting at the same table with Bob, all of Bobs closest friends, Bobs closest coworkers, or whatever. The suffix -ra is the impolite/informal way o

Instead, she just stared at the man on the screen in front of her, the man with his long, drooping skin, tired eyes, haggard face and balding head. He was hardly the admiral we had once known. She said "I don't have any desire to do it," and then quickly, "but I'll follow my orders, if you give them to me."
There was fright in her eyes. She gripped the edges of the captain's chair and bit her cheek, fighting off inevitable tears. But not here. She couldn't cry now. People relied on her to be strong. What people she wasn’t sure, but someone, somewhere, surely. She had to believe that.
"Those are your orders," the man said, sinking heavily into his chair. "I trust you'll carry them out."
She snapped off communications with ill-hid despair. Her blonde hair, thin and almost colorless, hung around her face like a fallen halo, fading with every sin. Her lips were tight, her cheeks drawn, and her eyes stared out of bru

Onyx stared at the smiling Doctor for a couple of moments. In pure shock, trying to just take in the fact of what he had just told her.
"I said; congratulations, Miss. You are pregnant."
And she stared again. Slowly her jaw started to drop, until her mouth was half open. Her eyes were for once widened and she was completely frozen.
"Thank you Doctor."
And without another word she stood up from the bed she was sitting on and walked out of the room, leaving the man behind her confused and a bit worried. Onyx's steps were loud and nearly in a stomping form as she hurried out of the clinic.
"Pregnant". The word echoed in her head. Pregnant, pregnant, pregnant. She really regretted her current boyfriend. She was going to kill him tonight for this.
"Shit, shit, shit, shit, SHIT."
She muttered under her breath. The alleyway concealed her weapon well which she needed to leave outside. Quickly she grabbed it and made her way back to the apartment.

Bury me with this flaskLast night we spent the entire night at the cemetery, sitting on the ancient graves, watching them crack and blow dust away beneath our weight. The crumbling stone falling to the flaky dark yellow grasses beneath our pale feet. Then, for a time, we'd watch the disappearing time of night wash away behind the kiss of the moonlight.Bury me with this flask6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
We would take swigs from the flask you held with elation at your palm. I'd pretend to sip it because the bitter, mint tastes of the alcohol was too gut wrenching and heart pounding to swallow. I'd keep it in my mouth, though, and when you weren't looking I'd rub the fluid over my broken skin. Twitching at the exhilarating pain.
You were the alcoholic, your eyes bloodshot like a dead sparrow's beneath the glow of the luminous crystalline stars.
I loved it.
It's stunning how statuesquely shaped your veins were, at least, the ones you could see beneath the sheik layer of your skin. The alcohol mixed in solely at the time with you

Objective: You will be engaged in an in-depth study of same sex marriages. This project will involve research and the result will be an argument presented in the form of a debate.
1. Homosexuality is not natural.
Much like eyeglasses, cesarean sections, birth control and painkillers are not natural.
2. The purpose of marriage is to procreate.
Therefore, sterile males, women that cannot bear children, the elderly, infirm, and infertile CANNOT be married.
3. Living with gay parents will adversely impact childrens lives.
Living with abusive parents, alcoholics, drug addicted parents, and parents that are never home is worse than living in a household with two loving gay people.
4. Gay Parents raise Gay Children.
Straight parents only raise straight children.

CHAPTER 1: Andromeda's discovery
Scattered pages and dusty old books filled the study in a cluttered mess as Andromeda Sparkle slept among the debris of her own handiwork. Unconscious after a long night of work, her mind only left dreamland when the amber beams of the rising sun shone on her face. With a groan, she slowly rose to her feet, heavy eyelids still drooping. Various loose documents clung to her face as she stood, unnoticed by her until their delicate forms slipped from her lavender cheeks and fluttered towards the blanket of weathered volumes that lay on the floor around her. Once the blur of sleep had finally faded, she turned to see the silhouette of her mom standing against the wall across the room, following a disarrayed chain of manuscripts as if casually searching for survivors.
Twilight Sparkle hadn’t turned the corner yet, but once she did, the purple mare wouldn’t be able to recognize the room. Andromeda’s expression burned from embarrassm
