"Bonjour," Seras repeated slowly while sipping on a water bottle (yes, she was supposed to be drinking blood, but what Master doesn't know won't hurt him). "Commo allay voo?" She sat up straight in her chair and frowned, puzzled. Was that right? She pronounced it the way the translator said it, right?
"Je suis très bien, merci! Et vous?" the voice continued from her CD player. She leaned forward, listening closely. "I am very well, thank you! And you?"
"Je swee tray bien, marsey. Eh voo?" she repeated, rocking back and forth in her chair. This was a lot harder than she expected. But it could be worse she could be learning Gaelic.

"Don't worry about it," he replied slowing down to a more comfortable pace and allowing Liara to keep pace with him. They'd known each other for 3 years and Tiberius still couldn't believe how she had changed from a shy and bumbling Scientist to a very confident and powerful spymaster, then again he had been dead for two of those years and he knew that his death had been a major reason for that change.

Hannibal. You're name has left me with scars far too deep for the mortal eye to view and your actions have left images that I fear are burned into my head. And yet every second I am away from you I feel like something in me is missing.
A person can go into your life and mean absolutely nothing, and in my years with the FBI I have learned it is better that way, but there's something within me that can not release you from my thoughts.
I yearn to be with you, to have you here beside me and to never be without you again. Every time you touched me before my body was set on fire, every fiber in me calling out your name. If only I could truly feel this again.
'Who am I kidding? You'll never return. Not to someone as unimportant as I am.

HeavenSeverus Snape knew he wouldn't survive this battle long before the Dark Lord summoned him. He'd known it for quite some time. He did not fear death, as so many others around him did. The fear in Hogwarts was almost tangible as he sat, his fingers steepled, in his office all year. The students had defeated, dead looks in their eyes. The few who still had fire in them were wise to hide it.Heaven4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
That was then, of course. Now, they all were free to let their fire spark and burn as they wished. From his hiding place in the Forest, he waited for the Dark Lord's summons.
The whole affair was over much more quickly than Severus would have liked. He still had not had the chance to tell Harry what must be done, what he had yet to do. He was prepared to die, albeit now with more disappointment on his shoulders than he expected and the sinking feeling that he'd let the entire Wizarding world down by not arming their greatest hope with the knowledge he needed.

Amanda Young threw herself upon her bed, tears running down her cheeks. She made a mistake, she thought, a huge fucking mistake. What was she thinking? Joining John on his quest to "help" people by forcing them into those hideous death traps that resembled some sort of medieval torture devices. Her fingers ran through her hair, her broken nails slightly scratching the skin of her scalp. Everything had gone wrong since she passed that damned test. If it didn't help her, like John said it would, she knew it wouldn't help anyone else. Her life was completely demolished, and she soon found herself tempted by old demons. Amanda didn't want all of this to happen. It was just one mistake.
One big mistake.
She looked over at the mirror hanging over her bed. The linen cloth of the canopy covered the glassy surface slight, obscuring her very image. She stared at her reflection. She was disgusted with the pathetic broken girl looking right back at her. With her slender form and sunken in eyes wit

"So, how was everyone's day?" Shepard asked, as she, Liara and Solaia sat around their dinner table. Thankfully, the meal was considerably more edible than Shepard's last attempt at culinary endeavors, having been created as a family effort; Shepard had handled peeling, slicing and other such preparatory tasks, while Liara did the actual cooking. Even Shepard, who prided herself on being able to learn new skills on as rapid a time frame as possible, had to admit that this was a much more effective use of capabilities.
"Quite slow, in all honesty," Liara replied. "I met with the department head to review a paper I have in progress on Prothean communications, and after that a few students stopped in for office hours."

I still remembered how Mom and Dad had shared a kiss under the mistletoe every Christmas. Including it had been a last-minute detail, but it ended up being even more effective than I would have imagined! The kiss was short, though. Taste the honey, but catch me if you want more: it was more of a strategy to drive his attention to the point that really matters - the top of the tower. Even when he didn't return that little peck, my heart was soaring, aglow with happiness. Good thing that some of my fans were suggesting songs non-stop throughout the week, if not, I'd have had a big problem choosing the perfect one for this moment. In my original plan, I wasn't going to sing this song until we had reached the last floor, but who cared! He hadn't pushed me away yet, so it was a good sign!
Once I pulled back, I reveled a bit in his shocked expression. “Hey, you.”

Turian Family namesIn many cultures a married couple usually chooses one of the partner’s surnames as their ‘married’ name. In some cases, they combine the two surnames into one, separated by a hyphen. With turians, they combine the surnames (referred to as family names for now on), but take it one step further. They take parts of both family names and merge them together to create a new last name.Turian Family names2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Here’s an example using one of my own married turian couples:
Panus originally had the family name Hironus, while his wife’s, Nyla, was Traten. When they married, they took Hiro from Panus’ family name and ten from Nyla’s to create Hiroten. What family name syllable(s) is used first in the new name is not dependant on the sex of the individual, but rather personal preference: Panus and Nyla could have just as easily have used Tranus instead.

The park was nearly deserted when Yagami Light arrived. There were a few children playing on the monkey bars, and several parents standing together next to the park benches; his mother went off and joined them as soon as she saw them, keeping close enough so that she could see where her son went. The neighborhood they lived in was a fairly small and quiet one; everyone seemed to know each other, and the park was hardly ever crowded.
He had his own spot in the park, a spot he would always run off to whenever his mother brought him out. It was nothing exciting just an old, rickety swing set which had been abandoned by all others ever since the new swing set had been built near the picnic benches on the other side of the park but for some reason he loved it. It was ill-kept - covered with spider webs, overrun with weeds, and rusting but he hardly cared. It made no difference if the spot was dirty or clean, because i
