Her words echoed in his mind. His arms held out away from him and his head up, he looked similar to the crucified image of christ. His hair was shaggy and tangled, and tears were dried on his face. He tilted his head back slightly and looked upward. "If only I had known..." he whispered. "If only I had been smarter...not blinded by love..."
"Silence!" The word rang throughout the large room. He winced and his eyes began to tear up once again. "Yes, mistress..." he whimpered. Shivers ran through his body as her laughter flowed from above.
His left arm jerked upward and he winced the familiar tugging pain in his palm. He glanced at his hand and saw the nearly invisible string going upwards. The connecting wound had begun to bleed again. His

YOU WERE WARNED...
It was dark out probably around 12. Out on the porch sat Jason Voorhees, his left arm holding him up while the other rested on his knee with his machete clutched in his hand. He was at his home, surrounded by trees and the peaceful sounds of the night-covered forest. Of course all that had to be interrupted when a more than likely female burst of laughter came echoing through the trees.
Jason's eyes opened, cold and dark filled with hate and rage. There were trespassers on his territory but not for long. Little did they know was that they were about to die. Jason got to his feet standing at almost 7 feet tall. His eyes squinted at the sound of another high-pitched laugh. Don't worry, they'll be dead soon, then the peace and quiet will return.

SH: Yes I was just passing the store and I thought we needed milk. I bought four gallons.
JW: Thank you... please leave on whole entire gallon free from experimentation. And I don't mean between the four jugs- I want one whole jug to myself!
SH: But I've gotten them for a purpose. What do you mean leave a whole gallon? I need them.
JW: I should have known. You only told me because you didn't want me to use them, didn't you?
SH: Yes. They are in the fridge. I will be back later. For now, Lestrade has me at a new case. Solved easily, leave my milk alone.

Matt+Mello-Tricks and PumpkinsTricks and ChocolateMatt+Mello-Tricks and Pumpkins8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The chocolate bar had no note to tell the ten year old blonde boy who had placed it under his pillow. Instead, a drawing of a pumpkin (jack-o-lantern, rather) with a crown and what could pass for a scepter was sketched onto a scrap of paper beside the candy. Uncertainly, Mello shoved the drawing into his pocket and climbed out of the bottom bunk of the bed he shared with Near, leaving the chocolate bar untouched on his white sheets.
Roger had informed him when he first arrived at Wammys a few months ago that Halloween was one of their most important holidays; a near-religious celebration that lasted all day. Still, when Near and their other roommate Matt had attempted to wake him up at 7 in the morning for the beginning of the party, he had pulled the covers over his head and flatly refused to move.
The party Mello rolled his eyes, he would have to join it eventually. Without bothering to get dressed (it was Halloween after all, this was just his costume

"Well... Subtract damage... clean up... and over all time of completion..."
The man blinked.
"Ok, let's just not mention this to Xemnas."
The red head crossed his arms.
"Tch... It can't be all that bad."
Xigbar looked at him, raising a brow.
"An hour and ten minutes... fifty minutes longer than last time." He said.
"...Then again there's no reason why we have to tell Xemnas everything that happens in training."
"Why... what happened in training?"
The two looked to the side of the room door to see their leader, standing in the way.
Saix was behind him, carrying a small bunch of file folders.
"Evening Xemnas... It really isn't any cause of worry, but-"

"What?" Dark blue orbs narrowed at the musician.
"Do you... ever, uhm, wash your hair?" he asked timidly. "I mean... the dreadlocks and all... not that you smell or anything!" he said quickly.
Xaldin stood up straight, towering over the Melodious Nocturne. "Do you ever fear for your life before Axel and Roxas put you up to this crap?" he asked, his lips pulling into a feral grin.
"Huh?" he looked genuinely befuddled; why, no one knew, because Demyx encountered more death threats than an ex-member of the Mafia.
"Start now..." Xaldin warned, holding one hand out to summon a ginsu. The other five would follow.

At first he couldn't figure out why; usually, once he fell asleep, he was pretty much unconscious until his alarm went off. His thoughts were interrupted as Zexion pressed up against him.
The sitar-wielder peered down at the dark-haired Nobody in confusion, but his world was immediately righted when he saw that Zexion was still asleep. Zexion wasn't cuddly when awake.
He smiled to himself and allowed Zexion to silently snuggle closer, enjoying the out of character-ness of the moment. It was a shame that Zexion never wanted to hug, seeing how he was so soft and warm…
Demyx frowned slightly as Zexion shifted closer and let out a slight groan. Now that there was skin on skin contact, the blonde found his small partner kind of wet and sticky and noticed that his breath was coming out in harsh, short pants.
Sitting up, Demyx tenderly placed his hand on Zexion's forehead. His face scrunched up in
