We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
In the month of July
The chestnuts are roasting on an open sidewalk
And the stockings are hung to dry
It's time to enjoy some frozen hot cocoa
Time for Christmas in July
We go out in our coats, scarves and hats
To go caroling with our folks
Until we all end up in the hospital
With symptoms of heat stroke
The fire is roaring in the chimney
The A/C blasting on high
Te temperature inside is at a standstill
It's Christmas in July
Oh ho the mistletoe
The very same one we bought last year
The craft store won't start selling decorations
Until all of the Halloween ones are clear
From the store
Dashing through the streets
On a stupid greased up sleigh
Unless the heat and friction
Sets it all ablaze
It's time for a snowball fight
From the freezer are ones we saved since December
After a while, we're all bruised and bumped
Because snow hardens into ice, I remember
The weather outside is frightful

To expand on the Rogue's Handbook located at http://www.true-magic.com/writing/rogue.php , this one's for the ladies!
I will not masquerade as a heroine, as that would encourage the villain to target me first. I'll let the Hero take point.
I will not join the side of the Villain. He would either be abusive towards me, or I would be killed in the crossfire of his and the Hero's epic final battle.
If we are attacked, I will be sure to give at least one loud shriek so the Hero's natural instinct to protect damsels in distress will kick in and I'll have a nice solid shield of flesh swinging a sword around for me and attracting our attacker's attention while I quietly dispatch the enemies I can reach while staying behind him.
I WILL NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE HERO.
I WILL NOT HAVE SEX WITH THE HERO. Doing such would make him declare me his one true love, and he would spend all his time trying to convince me to leave my rougish ways behind to become the ideal woma

What if I held you like you were made of glass
And out of my dreams you would never pass
I'd like to think you'd know just what love is and was
Because in my arms I'd show how to really love and be loved
My world would be complete
If I could just lay at your feet
And tell you all that you mean to me
Oh how my heart and soul would be so free
I think a love like this would stand a chance
And be more than just a simple little romance
I would take you and hold and never let you go
I would never let this love grow cold if you'd only say so
My heart feels like a fire is waking from a dark cold slumber
And if you touched my chest you would certainly fall under
The spells of my love yes my love that's who you would be
Just say the word and I will be your everything
I'll even take the time to learn what makes your heart truly sing
I'll be your everything if you would swear upon all you hold dear
That you'll never fall out of love with me not once ever you hear

Am I crazy?
Slowly, I walked, feeling the eyes that didn't exist on his face watching me. Watching my every movement. His proxy failed to get me, I wondered why he didn't just come and get me now. Just get it over with. I guess he fed on the fact that he was driving me crazy. My eyes were so tired, but they were stuck open. I wondered what time it was. I wondered who that girl, Cassie, exactly was. When did she get taken? It hardly mattered anymore. She was dead, set free from the suffering. I didn't know if it was a good idea to kill her. She could've helped me.
It doesn't matter. I told myself. I couldn't change what I did. She was dead. I killed someone.
I killed someone ...
I didn't want to go home. I didn't want to be alone, sleeping alone. I needed to be with someone I trusted, a sleep over. I had no blood on me other than the bottom of my shoes, but it wasn't noticeable. I walked for what seemed like an eternity, trying my best not to just pull my hair

Roy turned to the younger boy, raising an elegant eyebrow. "What do you mean? Of course I do," he mumbled, still in a blissful daze.
Ed snorted, looking up at the ceiling, like that's who he's talking to. "You shower me with gifts and assorted chocolates. That's flattery, not affection," he stated, simply, without hesitation.
The elder rolled onto his back. Chuckling at his soon-to-be joke, he replied, "Aw, does little Edward want me to hold his hand?"
"Shut up, bastard," Ed growled, "I'm just saying, a touch on the shoulder, a quick wink, a little flirting, or even hand-holding would be nice."
"Why do I need to do that stuff? You already know that I love you."
The blonde shrugged, though it was awkward due to him being in bed. "It's kind of like a little reminder, I don't know. It's nice."
Roy nodded slightly, then smirked, as he does. "Flirting, you say?"

Wings Of Light
Upon me is the last dawn
Faded away has the last dusk
I leave behind all of the rights and wrongs
I don't deserve an afterlife that is also rough
Mesmerized in deep suspense
As I await the final arrival
My tears become so intense
These last moments of hope are vital
Allow me to break away
Accept the toll of my undying faith
I was careless as I fell
Mocking life itself
Every secret I held
Defined a broken side of myself
An inner slaughter I could not defend
A one-sided war that I could not fight against
My downfall is what I didn't want to prevent
I always lusted after the idea of my final descent
Because I knew that in the end I would ascend
All I can really do is live this divided life as best as I can
I realized that the only thing in perfection is being broken
And the only way to get rid of that is to wipe out my existence
Shine down and shine true
I will no longer be powerless
You don't know how long I've been waiting for you

In which Roy Mustang reflects on Edward's snugglebunnyish tendencies.
By Shadow-Mage-Evelyn 2010
Upon initial discovery, it surprised Roy Mustang to find that, despite his gruff, sharp-edged and standoffish demeanor, Edward Elric was actually quite a gentle, loving and affectionate person. He was also quite tactile, as Roy soon found out after waking up morning after morning with the younger man's limbs hooked around him, a fact which surprised him to no end since the younger man had always seemed so put off by any displays of affection. It seemed, however, that the same rules did not apply when he was only half-awake, which is why, perhaps, Roy enjoyed the morning hours the most. His entire day could be thrown off if the morning was not spent in the now familiar ritual of disentangling himself from mismatched limbs.
Some mornings, however, the whole process could become quite an ordeal. Like this particular morning, Roy thought as he lay there, his

Jaclyn sat at her window yet again watching the wolves thunder past the woods. Her un-natural golden eyes longed to go closer to the sacred animals. On this planet called Pegata the wolves were sacred animals that didn't take the form of Earth's wolves. No, no these wolves were gigantic beings. They were at least 100 foot tall beings equipped with ears and tails of Earth wolves. Her people had been created after those beautiful creatures, so says their history books.
She had been attached to them for so long, ever since she was a child and wandered over the huge hill to the woods where one wolf pack resided. Her house was near the border of their small city and she found it all the more reason to go see the wolves. According to her mother she had been trying to play with one of the 'puppies' that was still well over her own height. Though she recalled the memory faintly, it was her most treasured.

"Come on Ed, it was just a joke, no need to get all pissy about it!" Envy exclaimed as he followed Edward up to the entrance.
"Well Envy it wasn't a funny joke" Ed snapped, grabbing the handle to the door. They were at the Laundry Mat to take care of their dirty cloths, normally Ed went by himself, and did Envy's laundry for him, but for whatever reason, Ed managed to goad him into coming with him, and now he really regretted it.
Envy, who, by this point, had had enough of Ed's attitude, grabbed him free hand and swung him around, practically pinning the shorter blonde to the cold glass doors behind them. He got VERY close to Ed, sinking down so they were at eye level, a dangerous glint appeared in his mischievous violet eyes, as they glared into Ed's nervous golden ones.

He still didn't see his ebony-haired general, but instead a couple holding hands with their wedding rings glinting in the sunlight. He turned back to his sundae dish and swirled the contents with the spoon thoughtfully.
Before they had started going out two years ago, Ed had already known about Roy's infamous bachelor status. He knew Roy had always been rather commitment-shy. Roy had even told him on their third date not to expect him to ever kneel down and ask for the blonde's hand. Ed had accepted it; it was just part of Roy. He

It was the first day of school, and you were now officially in sixth grade. You were really excited, for you hoped you'd make some really good friends, and maybe even get a boyfriend.
That morning, you had gotten up very refreshed, and had gotten ready quicker than normal, nearly startling your parents. Once you were ready, you headed out of the door to your bus stop, which was at the corner of the street, facing another, much busier road.
At the stop, was a boy you had never seen before, with another, much older looking albino. You approached them suspiciously; the words 'never trust strangers' ringing in your head. After a better look, you decided to come right up to them, brushing your (h/c) hair back so as to not block out your (e/c) eyes.
"Hello? Are you two riding the bus?" you asked, a small hint of fear in your voice.

A Wish For Freedom
I, a child birthed in chains
Raised in a cage
But on this day- they will break
I was taught self-hatred
Learning that the differences were divided
Among the people who are considered “civilized “
Forcefully combining my fear and envy
As I was raised in the middle of this society
My power and pride were deprived of me
I was only an empty vessel
Believing that all promises were fabled
But once upon a calm- I witnessed hope's revival
Wings sprout from my tongue / Words from my soul are sung
A new voice's journey has begun / Let the era of silence be undone
Obtaining peace of mind / Experiencing freedom of heart
Allowing the colors to shine / The future will blind the scars
I had to fight the system; I had to stop the cycle
It was either my downfall or survival
So I reversed this downward spiral

We sit around and mope and mope

Sometimes we wonder how we will make ends meet
Sometimes we cry and sob and curse
Sometime we feel things can't get any worse
Sometimes we wonder how we'll get through the day
Our tempers as hot as the month of May
But here is one thing I say to you
Whenever you are down or feeling blue
There is one thing you can do
Sit right down and think things through
Life it too short to be all in a dither
For our lives are short like a flower that withers

Every day that ends is one we will never get back!

"Why are you recording me?" you asked your boyfriend curiously. He had a "vlog"- one that he called the "The Awesome Life of Gilbert." He was constantly carrying around a camera and filming himself and the surroundings around him.

Reflecting on drops of tears
Falling from distant places
Smeared and smothered into fabric
You hide watery eyes behind glass
And it was fate
Who held your hand
As it was hope
Who broke your heart
That withered thing
When heaven was a memory
Forged out of the ash
Of hope and light
Into the contours
When there were
Whispers on rain
Sliding between power
While your darkness
Wrapped in brilliance
Your lovely was
In blinding bliss
You ate life
And called it
Now in darkened
Corners you feed
On salty tears
Hidden behind glass
