An Unexpected Adventure - CommissionImagine the moon. Imagine her soft, pale light reaching down from the heavens, chasing away the darkness of the night, and outdoing even the stars in terms of beauty and brilliance. The cloudless sky greets the traveller with thousands of small, blinking specs of light. The air is warm, with a slight summer breeze. There's no need for a fire, nor does the traveller wish to make one. Its light would cover some of the night sky's beauty, and he doesn't wish to spoil his view.An Unexpected Adventure - Commission2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As the traveller lifts his camera to snap another picture of the moon, his attention is drawn by a sudden rustling in a bush nearby. Not in the least concerned about the possibility of it being a snake, coyote, or bear, the man calmly gets up from the patch of soft grass and dirt he's been lying on, and walks towards the bush. He doesn't make a sound. As he carefully pushes some branches aside, a pair of large eyes appears. In the light of the moon, the traveller can see that they are brown. The small creature the e

My blood falling to the floor, as if coming from the sky.
"You told me that you love me, but we could never be,
I cannot live without you, so I'm doing this you see."
"If we cannot be together, then I don't want to live,
I've got nothing left at all, nothing left to give."
I close the envelope softly, seal it wish a kiss,
Turn to look the other way, and wait for my dismiss.

"Fool! I'm a bloody fool!" she yelled, stomping over to her bed and throwing herself on it, burying her face under her pillow. There she sobed for a good twenty minutes, unable to help herself.
She hadn't ment to be so rude. She was jsut fed up with Alek tryign to pry things out of her. She couldn't tell him her secret, even though it was tearing her up inside to keep it from him. It was only fair that he knew, seeing as he had told her jsut abotu everything. But if he knew she wasn't a boy....she was sure he'd flip over the moon and never speak to her again.
When she'd finally had her fill of girly nonsense, she changed into her work clothes and ran up onto the ships topside, pushing every single thought of the prince ot hte back of her he

"And I don't ever-" her mother's voice screeched with fury, her plump face turning a ruddy color with anger to match her daughter's.
"Ma, this is my passion! Ever since Da died- " Deryn sputtered out.
"No. Don't you say a word, young lady. Passion has nothing to do with it! A young woman such as yourself doesn't go hop on some warship and come back like like this!" Mrs. Sharp vigorously waved her flour-stained palms in Deryn's direction, and Deryn could do nothing but hang her head in shame.
Another set of eyes had been watching this scene, taking in the childish bickering. The brunette knew better than to get between a mother and her offspring, so he forced himself not to make a sound and drew himself to the farthest corner of the table.

"Can you keep a secret?"
Twilight was lying in her bed wide awake, staring at the ceiling. The sunlight was creeping into the room behind the thick blue curtains; the light filtering through casted faint shadows on the walls. The mare was going over yesterday's lesson in her head. Instead of ending awkwardly like the one earlier this week, it had just been awkward in general. The lengthy discussions she and the Princess usually had about the books had been diminished into a few words and there had been no "ideas" from Princess Celestia. At least this time Twilight had been prepared for it, though the way she prepared for something like this meant that there was rarely much more she could learn. Luckily studying was something Twilight greatly enjoyed. She also got to spend time with the Princess - something she enjoyed even more, lately more than ever. But no matter how much she loved all this, she hadn't been able to shake the nagging feeling that s

Leviathan: A picture for a prince
Just a small intro. Deryn/Dylan Sharp and Prince Alecksander Ferdinand are on board the leviathan heading towards the Ottoman Empire. A surprise request from Aleck gets Deryn/ Dylan to realize her true feelings for him. Rated pg-13 for later chapters.
(I might go to four chapters at most, also keep in mind there is a change of point of view and that the book just came out in October. This fanfic is a test run for future fanfics later on)
Alek walked along the great air ship that was the Leviathan. His now rubber soles clanked against the metal walkways of the ships spine. The whole crew seemed to be a little on edge whenever he and his men walked about with their "highly flammable" shoes. Until finally to put them all at ease they borrowed some rubber shoes that were necessary if you were to walk along the great ship.
After receiving the shoes Alek decided to head to the backside of the creature or "dorsal" as he learned later it

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

"Of course, Sou."
The little boy calmly walked to his father's side, small hand instantly coming up to clutch at his father's ever-bandaged fingers. He turned a serious expression to the older brunette—an expression Sou had definitely gotten from his daddy—and asked, "Why do you go to the memorial every day?"
Sasuke's eyes widened fractionally at the question. Of course, his son was very sharp. That was a trait both he and Sakura had given to all of their children and he could not be more grateful. But after years of explaining away his absence in the early mornings, that was a question he hadn't expected.
"You wanna know why I go to the memorial huh?" he echoed, a mysterious smile taking root on his pale lips. He looked up from the boy to gaze out the window he was standing just in front of; the window with the perfe

The greeting echoed emptily off the small apartment walls, no one there to hear it but him. Dust covered everything in a fine layer again... Had he really been gone that long? A month didn't feel so far away anymore.
Cerulean eyes wandered aimlessly over the sparse furniture, picking out individual pieces of dust floating in the shafts of light created by the blinds covering his window. Everything was the same as he'd left it, nothing out of place; not that he had expected any less.
The blonde sighed heavily, slouching back against the door he had just entered through. Still the same... Which went for everything. Same village, no troubles. Same drive and still no Sasuke.
His breaths were heavy with remorse and defeat as Naruto gazed emptily out through those broken window eyes. He had failed once more to bring his friend back. It was nothing new, but the wound still wept crimson tears.
Every mission had been such a strain on him lately. It didn't matter how simpl

You need but beckon and I will come.
Send me off, and off I go.
Look at me, and I melt.
Simply look away, and I will die.
You are my everything and my nothing.

Sasuke looked over his head with a smile as he felt strong arms come up over his shoulders from behind. Naruto looked like he had just awoken--circles under his eyes not yet faded, eyes glassy, hair a bit of a mess. But he was smiling the most beautiful smile the man had ever seen.
"Just finishing up some last minute paperwork so we can have the rest of our vacation to ourselves," he replied in a contented hum, accepting the gracious, lazy kiss that was pressed to his lips. His chest hummed while his skin sang pleasantly of the touch.
"Well then hurry up and come back to bed," Naruto languidly returned. "I'm feelin' lazy and I got some things I think I need to give ya." His tone was sultry and sleepy and everything perfect in Sasuke's world.
Before the blonde could slip his arms back off of Sasuke's shoulders, the older man caught his left hand and brought it back to his lips. He gave the blonde a meaningful, upside-down

But I hope I haven't been the worst
I hope that you'll remember me
Even when all we know is gone
You'll always be in my mind
I'll never forget all the paths you helped me find
Please forgive my past mistakes
And I'll remember you had none
No matter where you are you'll be here
I'll never forget you, nor your tears
I'll always help you if you only ever asked
No matter how weak you think you are
In my mind you're always stronger
Even if you can't hold on or fight much longer
Then just stay to hear me say my last goodbye
I can't blame you for anything
Please don't have any regrets
You're life is your own to live
But I ask you live it well
I'll always remember the stories you'd tell
But I have one last thing to say
Before I say goodbye
I have to tell you that I love you
Like only a best friend could
So please remember that about me
I hope you give life another chance
Before you think death is what's coming next
That's the way it goes
The Vanity Mirror (Kankuro x Reader)Today was a really big day! It was the day you had been anticipating for months now—a soon-to-be-annual festival in which Konoha and Suna got together and shared crafts, love, knowledge, and training. This festival was the inaugural event to what would soon hopefully become tradition.The Vanity Mirror (Kankuro x Reader)7 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
For you, it was a fantastic opportunity to learn about a village you had always been enamored with. As a Konoha native, you had grown up hearing about the Village Hidden in the Sand. From merchants’ tales, to tales from the foot soldiers stopping in the Leaf after traversing the desert, you had heard a fine amount about the exotic extravagance of the village. It more than piqued your interest to hear about the spice vendors and merchants toting carpets and tapestries. To you, it seemed like a different world.
And now you were going to be able to witness a piece of that world! Festivities were scheduled to start before noon; so you readied yourself rather quickly, tossing on a simple clothing s

That was the start of things at least. Then they started to slip, even if only bit by tiny bit. It was always something small that they would disagree over. Dishes not being done, whose turn it was to clean the bathroom, staying up or out too late while the other was sleeping. Even missions had their little faults here and there, and though they both knew a mission was a mission, needing to be gone for more than a night would often spark an argument.
Little arguments turned into bigger ones. It always seemed to be over the same stupid things. Dishes wouldn’t get done for a week and then suddenly someone was sniping at the other, remarking how lazy or ungrateful they were

The brunette regarded him with dull eyes, the tears long gone from their depths. He watched silently as the blonde dropped to his knees, hunched over himself as he bawled openly, begging forgiveness where it wasn’t deserved. He didn’t speak, didn’t move; he was too numb to even realize how quickly it had escalated to this, too stricken by the bruise across his cheekbone to care. So what if a simple apology had suddenly burst into a hysterical tirade? He couldn’t bring himself to care or try any longer.

His hand moved of its own volition, reaching shakily for his lover's face. When it made contact with skin it was already far too cold, fingers not responding the way the once skilled shinobi knew he should have managed. But in the face of something so helpless, he supposed he really didn’t care.
Naruto sobbed hard again, clutching at the Jonin's blood-soaked hand, tears pouring down his face and marring his vision. He didn't have the words to say; didn’t have the strength to save him. He couldn’t do anything but sit there and cry.

"Yes, Naruto?" The older man's voice was subdued as he gazed past the memorial in front of them, eyes not really seeing the names or the stone, but the faces that belonged to them. He did not shift from his stance, hands in his pockets, head bowed slightly.
The silence stretched between them as the blonde contemplated his words, wind tousling his hair. He had an image to keep now, didn’t he? It was due for a cut soon, he realized absently, azure eyes not really seeing anything. It was getting long enough that it would be in his face if it wasn’t so naturally unruly.
