In The Bleak MidwinterThe Evening was cold and dark and yet ... it seemed rather cozy for the two lovers. They had the fireplace lit causing this Christmas Eve all the better. Ada sat in front of the fire, taking a sip of her hot cocoa. This was her first time spending Christmas with Wesker. "There couldn't be anything more like it... for once .... being granted the luxury to be a normal couple, spending Christmas together." She thought to herself.In The Bleak Midwinter4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She gazed outside the grand window which complimented the room nicely. To Ada, a winter evening had never looked this breath-taking. She got up slowly, approached the nearby coffee table and placed her mug on the small piece of furniture. Ada sat down on the couch, curling her legs as she did so. She turned her attention to the fire, admiring the warm presence.
"Some Christmas music would be nice though..." It just wasn't Christmas without some good old fashioned Christmas music. She got up once again to fetch her purse which was also placed on the cof

I'm Robert Clinton Sharp, and this is my story of how Yako and I got together up until now.
One day, while I was walking along the sidewalk, then I saw an eighteen-year old girl
who has the same hair color as I do. I felt nervous at first, but I'm sure that my
sisters: Kathleen, Sakuya and Krista might give me some advice. "Just show how
much you feel about her." Krista said. I understood what she told me and I went back
home to think about what to write in a letter to express my feelings to that girl I saw
and wonder where she might meet me at and hopefully that she and I might get to
know each other more then hopefully one day that girl and I might marry each other
and hopefully have a family together and love each other forever and always, no

Character basics - LiaraCharacter basics - Liara3 years ago in Drama More Like This
Name: Liara T'Soni
Long straight head tentacles. Doesn't do anything to style them as prefers normal look
Wears proper school uniform and reading glasses that fold up under tentacles unlike normal glasses
Liara is a very sweet and kind girl yet gets a fair amount of teasing and even hatred due to her Father (yes I said Father) Matriarch Aethyta banning her from all sports and physical school activities. As Matriarch Aethyta is in a place of political power she has told Principal Anderson that Liara is to be protected from harm at all costs.
Some of the other school kids are angry and resentful of this as it makes Liara exempt from ever suffering any injury. They refer to her as "Princess Liara" as a vindictive term.
She is a straight A student and is only ever beaten for grades in Art by Jack (who fails most everything else). Liara spends much of her lunch breaks studying with Tali, Mordin and Kaidan instead o

Summary: AU Angeal always considered himself to be quite responsible and honorable and his mettle is put to the test when an unexpected turn of events leaves him a father.
Rated: K+, for mentions of death
Disclaimer: I do not own any part of the Final Fantasy series. If I did certain people would still be alive. And with happy families with lots of babies and maybe a dog. Named Zack.
Author's Note: And so I start on my pet project, an AU where Angeal gets to be a dad. Thought it would be a cute idea. Also thought it would be pretty cute if we dragged in Genesis and Sephiroth as well. They always say it takes a village to raise a child...I'm sure three SOLDIERs should do just fine...right? Right? Also...this would be more of random moments kind of fic, rather than a chronological order sort of...thing. I have no idea. XD It will also be part of a 100 themes challenge.

Crawling in my forlorn appearance
I hide my soul behind these tattered wings
Tattered and broken as they are
Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood.
In quiet despair upon the cold earth
Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees
And clutched timidly between my fingers
Rests one last jewel of Hope.
A single unblemished plume plucked
From the silver light of dawn
A feathered ray of light from beyond
To illuminate the void that has me bound.
This precious barb of silk
Once lost as I was and forgotten
Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss
To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss.
So now I fade away…
My tender flesh removed
My shattered wings released
My inner light unsheathed… escapes.

It was Kenneth Sullivan, Sully, they found in that passage, soaked in blood and ripped to shreds by his killer. His jacket had been torn away and chunks of flesh had been gouged from his bones with teeth and fingers. Jill slid his eyes closed and told Barry to stand watch at the curtain. Then she started rifling through their fallen comrade's pockets, looking for ammo for her Beretta.
He didn't think anyone, or anything, would stumble over them while she worked. Maybe she just didn't want him watching while she looted a corpse. A friend, no less. Either way, he didn't object. He just took his place at the entrance to the gallery and waited.
He tried to think of what he was going to say to Wesker when he found him. He wanted to get the conversation straight in his head. The Captain could talk rings around him, and he didn't want to give him that chance.
But he couldn't shake the thought that Joseph, Kenneth, and maybe even the rest of Bravo Te

Mass effect high is a concept by the-joeblack and I love it!
Short close cropped black hair.
Wireframed glasses covering curious brown eyes.
A bit lanky and gangly.

Kaidan Alenko is an Earth born human who transferred to Citadel High as part of an exchange program. He's a good student, almost on the level of Mordin and Tali. He is one of the few people that can keep up with Mordin's train of thought. He is also close friends with Tali which comes from their love of electronics.
Seen as a major klutz, Kaidan hides the true reasoning behind his clumsiness, his biotics. He was diagnosed very young and was given experimental implants that cause migraines that tend to hit him at the most unfortunate time. He is somewhat ashamed of them making him become more r

"STOP IT, YOU'RE KILLING HER!!!!!" I screamed.
The disgusting pig of a father had been getting drunk every night and raping my mother for the past 3 months. It wasn't always this way. In fact he had been the best dad a family could want. My father kept us happy by giving us love and care, but it all shattered after he found out that Shiro and I were cursed to be wolf hybrids by the Midnight Witch. He demanded that we be exiled from his house hold, but my mother would have nothing of it. So he decided that he would make our lives a living hell
From that day on our mother was tortured in front of our eyes, while we could do nothing but watch in agony. Shiro told me she had nightmares of an evil man killing us all and described him as our father. I couldn't take his abusive behavior anymore, but there absolutely nothing I could do.

Laid to Rest: PrologueI was breathing hard as I tried to focus. What the- I coughed a little tasting the dirt in my mouth. I tried sitting up but my hands wouldn't part. I turned my focus on my hands. Bound by rope, great. I notice the thickness of the rope, before I'm interrupted by muffled voices nearby. I can't look over there, they think I'm unconscious, so I should probably try not to move too much. If I do alert them it could hasten my presumably violent death.

Yet no warmth do I feel

Yet each carress brings only more tears
The night brings its beauty
Yet my world is dark enough already
The birds sing their songs
Yet each of their songs causes only more melancholy in my soul
The ink from the top of my brush pours over my paper
And I imagine my words being carried across the skies and over to you
Each stroke of my brush is my fingers against your skin
Each word of my heart is a word I wish to speak to you
Oh how I wish we could be as two mandarin ducks
Oh how I wish we could soar across the sky for ten thousand li

HappinessI had lost hope long ago of ever finding my own happiness.Happiness5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The fact that I was able to obtain my happiness, though it may have been only for a short while, is a blessing in itself.
Yet I cannot deny the pain I feel.
Seeing them together though I know where his affections lie, with her and yet with me also, it pains me to know that I am not the only one sharing in his affections.
Perhaps I am just a stupid, selfish woman. Perhaps I am being petty; I do not know.
And nor do I care.
I wish that I could be the only one who shared his loving gaze.
I do wish for their happiness, yet at the same time I curse it.
For their happiness to survive means that my own happiness must perish.
Why must it be so?
Why can my happiness not survive as well as theirs?
I wish I knew the answer ..but I do not.
I want to be happy .I wish to feel happiness.
But more than that, I wish for his happiness as well.
So if he can be happier with her than with I, then I shall let him go.
