Heard You Were Sick
(Disclaimer: Inception and all related properties belong to Christopher Nolan.)
Something was off. That much was for sure. It took Eames a moment or two to realize just exactly what it was, and when he did, he felt silly for not noticing it immediately.
It was silent.
Eames was late for work, and no one had said a word.
"Where's Arthur?" he asked immediately, a smirk playing on his lips. Ariadne was the first to pay him any mind, and all she did was shrug. Was the stick-in-the-mud point man late for work? He hoped he was. To be able to mock his failed perfect attendance would be so sweet he was sure it would give him diabetes.
Yusuf strolled in then, carrying his daily cup of coffee. "Ah, morning, Eames," he greeted.
"Hey, Yusuf, do you know where Arthur is?" Ariadne piped up, apparently as curious as the forger.
"I think Cobb's on the phone with him right now, actually," Yusuf responded, sipping at the coffee before grimacing. It was sad how he was

Tony sighed turning away from his scientific holo-screen, " Why not, not like I have a option when he call anyways.."
" Stark, we have a problem."
" Does S.H.I.E.L.D. ever not have any problems? And who gave you my number?"
"It's Asgard related, thought you might want to take a look at it before I talked to Dr. Banner..."
" Oh him? He's always interested in jobs and assignments, he's especially helpful as long as he doesn't get too frustrated."
Tony had just finished his home/office repairs and was reopening Stark Tower with a bang. Since it was party at his tower it was public, and it was expected that Thor attend, along with the rest of the Avengers.

I am so sorry
I failed you both

Teddy BearFriendship. Nothing else made Loki's mind swim as much as that single word. What defined a true friend? What made these humans crave friendship so greatly?

Loki didn't need friends. He had ever had them and he never would.
The Avengers. He was technically a part of them now, but he had never felt so on the outside before, so not belonging with them. (Or anyone, for that matter.) Even he and Thor, who's relationship had been somewhat salvaged, no longer felt genuine. At least, that's what Loki thought about the matter. Loki thought about a lot of things, especially during his daily walks, which, thank you, he preferred to take alone.
On this particular day, he noticed a small child, a girl with blonde hair who couldn't have been older than seven. She had tripped and scraped up her knees pretty badly. The girl's mother held her as she cried, her head resting against

It was cold. So cold in fact that one could see one's breath puff up into the air with every inhale and exhale. But it wasn't the time of year that caused this bitter cold. Oh no, it couldn't be blamed on something as simple as the weather.
No. It was the constant presence of the Dementors that made Azkaban one of the coldest places on the face of the earth. But it wasn't the natural cold that merely made your nose red and your skin freeze; it was the kind of cold that entered the heart and sucked everything inch of warmth from the soul. It was Hell.
Most people have the very wrong perception that Hell is a place where you burn- all fire and brimstone and a little cloven hoofed devil poking you with a pitchfork in your rear at random intervals for the rest of eternity- but this is a lie. Hell is far crueler than that and all the prisoners of Azkaban knew this, for they lived in the wretched place.
Hell is cold. Hell is the place where you relive yo

"N-No!" He managed, fighting the grip. Another one only came to immobilize his other arm and then more for his legs. Strong hands, overpowering, he couldn't escape, couldn't move, couldn't breathe. "AXEL!!!" The boy screamed as another hand came bearing down toward his face.Care to dance5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was different though: warm and gentle. Cerulean eyes shot wide, racing back and forth in the darkness. Nothing but the sound of Roxas' own heavy breathing filled the room. He was covered in a thin layer of sweat. "axel...?" This time it was much softer, posed as a question. "You called for me in your sleep, my lord," came his answer. "It...was just a dream?" Roxas asked, trying to force his eyes to adjust to the darkness.
"I'm afraid so. It's really not my place to ask, but is something troubling you?" Roxas looked down at his lap,

It was always easy for him to get there before anyone else, since his previous class was right down the hall.

The woman sat at the desk with her reading glasses on, grading papers.KH: Days in High School Ch 23 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As more students started to flow into the room, he anticipated the arrival of his best friend. He didn't want to have to tell him that he was going to have to cancel their plans. At least he hadn't told Kairi yet, so he wouldn't have to make her feel bad or something.
His eyes sifted through the mass of students in identical uniforms until he saw the boy who stood out with his long, silver hair. He came in with his bag over his shoulder, then set it down by the desk in front of Sora's, taking his seat sideways in the chair.
"Hey." He said. "I told Kairi about our plans for tonight."
He sunk into his seat. "Aw, great "

Sora and Kairi: Switched! KHAF 22"Sora! Sora!" Namine couldn't help but feel frustrated and helpless. "Whatever Sora was knocked out with is preventing me from switching out or seeing what's going on," she grumbled. "I didn't think that was possible. Seriously, couldn't we have entered a competition that didn't involve cheating?" She sighed. "And now I'm monologuing. Great. Maybe I'm just too used to having someone bounce thoughts off of or something..." Namine didn't know how much time had passed, but she was eventually aware that Kairi's body had stopped moving. Namine was also aware that she could see their surroundings again. At first, there didn't seem to be any difference as her entire field of vision was still dark. It took a few moments before she noticed a thin beam of light piercing through the darkness, barely illuminating Kairi's unconscious body. "What is this, a storage closet? Storeroom?" She let out an internal sigh. "Okay, let's try this again." Barely noticeaSora and Kairi: Switched! KHAF 223 years ago in Humor More Like This

"How do girls walk in high heels? I mean, is it a natural ability or what?" After four hours of non-stop shopping, Sora and Selphie finally headed over to the food court for lunch. They had a lot of shopping bags to take care of, so Sora agreed to Selphie buying while he watched them over. Unfortunately, it was the lunch rush, so Sora was keeping himself busy by talking to Naminé who had just recently woken up. The side of Kairi's face was becoming numb as Sora sat there with his head on the table's surface.
"Let's see...how do I explain this to you?" Sora propped an elbow on the table and rested his palm against his chin waiting for an answer. Finally, Naminé replied, "Girls have better balance than guys. And stronger ankles too."
Sora rolled his eyes. "Right. Whatever you say, Naminé." There was an uncomfortable feeling in his stomach as he noticed a lot of guys kept looking at him. He gave a weak smile to a couple of boy

"Come on, Kairi!" Tidus pleaded.
"No!" Kairi shouted forcefully with her arms crossed. Tidus had been spending the past ten minutes trying to get Kairi to tell him about her bondage fantasy. Of course, Kairi wasn't ready to share that part of her private thoughts.
"Please, Kairi? She piqued my interest!"
"If I tell you, will you stop nagging me?!" Kairi demanded. Tidus nodded enthusiastically making Kairi sigh. "Okay, look. It's none of your business, but if you must know..." Kairi glanced around nervously. "Basically, I'm wearing this exact same outfit, only it's completely made out of black leather, right?" She indicated the outfit her original body was wearing. "And Sora's bare-chested with a leather half-jacket on." Her eyes glazed over as she imagined it playing out in her mind. "We're in this medival-looking dungeon with all these contraptions.

"And so I said, 'Attention duelists!' Man, you should've been there..."
With a serene grin, the guard looked over at the silver-banged girl that he was leading. She hadn't said much other than "Mm-hm" and "Nuh-uh." It was quite clear that she wasn't really paying attention to his bravado, but he was so absorbed in spurting out his ego that the man didn't notice. Their footsteps echoed throughout the hallways as the pair walked along the eerily quiet corridor.
Riku's eyes constantly soaked in the environment expecting to see wooden doors plastered with huge, styrofoam stars and stage hands rushing around like Chocobos in heat. Instead, he was met with disappointment as bundles of pipes and heating tanks began to steadily increase in quantity as they walked further along. This began to nag at him, like an itch that couldn't be scratched.
"Wait a minute..." The feeling of suspicion became greater until he found himself face-to-face with a wall of

"What's wrong, Kairi?" Pence noticed the disturbed look on Sora's face. After spending another hour searching around, they came up with nothing new about Natalia.
"I think we should abandon the plan," Kairi stated. The boys gaped at her in astonishment.
Riku gave her a quizzical look. "Abandon..."
"...the plan?" Pence finished.
Kairi sighed. "I mean, look at us. We're so obsessed over trying to get revenge that we've basically wasted the entire day plotting instead of prepping Sora a bit more." She shook her head in disappointment. "And let's be honest, he needs all the help he can get."
"So you're saying that we should stop?" Riku asked. He sipped his Sea-Salt frappuchino with an undecipherable expression.
Kairi was silent for a moment. If they abandoned the plan, that would mean that Sora's reputation would be in danger. But Sora said that he didn't care what everybody else thought. And if they did go through with it, then what? Natalia might consider

He slowly pushed the door open. Beside him, Russia's face betrayed no sense of worry or fear, despite that there was a good chance the monster was inside this room somewhere.
"Lead the way," Russia said. "You're the one who wanted to come here."
China nodded and took the lead. It was slightly disconcerting, knowing that Russia was behind him, but he managed not to show any unease.
He stopped in front of the table and deposited the pile of papers Italy had grabbed as he was escaping among the many other papers covering the surface.
"Explain," he demanded, turning to face Russia.

Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap. Riku stopped writing in his notes for a second, glancing over at Sora, who stared blankly at his history book while tapping his pencil on the desk. Sora was not a studier.

"For once, I have no idea. What do you think I should do?"
The older teen hauled his backpack back up on his shoulder when it started to slide down his arm. "I already told you what I thought you should do, and I still think the same."
Sora stuck his hands into his hair and messed it up completely, as if the spikes in his hair was blocking his brainwaves from flowing completely. "I know, I know!" He stopped walking and turned to Riku. "But why is doing the right thing so hard this time?"
He grinned suddenly, his eyes shining in the sunset's light, beneath his silvery bangs.

The teenager called Michael lay on the ground unmoving. After all, he had just been knocked clear across the room by his fiery-tempered girlfriend. A few onlookers watched with concern at his motionless body.
"You think he's okay? That was one wicked punch!"
"He's still breathing, so he can't be dead."
"Eww, what's that smell?"
After a few awkward moments, in one swift motion, Michael's body suddenly bounded up to a standing position, forcing bystanders to jump back in shock.
"Urg..." He spat out the taste of plaster and paint residue from his mouth. "Never gonna get used to that." Cricking his neck a couple of times and brushing himself off, he walked calmly toward the auditorium's doors and down the long aisle to the judge's seats that were set right in front of the stage.
The auditorium itself looked like a typical opera theater. There were three levels of seats and skyboxes were scattered among the walls. The maximum occupancy was in the 1

"I wonder how Sora and Kairi are doing," Riku thought. He had come to the island during sunrise to reinforce some of the new wooden planks that had become loose. He looked like a junior carpenter as he wielded the hammer in one hand and with nails in his teeth. "It must be pretty hard on both of them. I mean, if I woke up one day and found myself as a female..." A slight chill traveled down his spine. "They're probably getting used to it by now..." He had just finished using the last nail in his mouth to hammer down another board when Kairi showed up. Riku immediately knew something was up by the way her face seemed to sag with exhaustion. Her hair was flattened on one side as if someone had shaved off the spikes halfway across her head. "What happened? You look like you've just gotten run over by a flock of Chocobos."

"Was there any doubt?" Her "friend" handed Natalia back her cell phone. "It wasn't that hard. It only took a couple of minutes to transfer the information when he wasn't looking." The girl chuckled as she viewed the contents that had been acquired.
"This should teach her friends to keep their mouths shut," Natalia said smugly. She quickly pulled out her wallet and slapped a bundle of bills across her informant's palm.

"Kairi! Calm down!" Sora cried. But there was no doubt in his mind that Tidus deserved it for being careless. After the group met up outside in the town square, Sora relayed the situation to the others, resulting in Kairi's justified wrath. Donald and Goofy were currently in the men's bathroom trying to figure out how to use urinals that weren't designed for animals as all of the stalls were currently occupied.

Unfortunately, the seats automatically folded up when not enough weight held them down, resulting in a lot of frustration on Wakka's part. "Maybe I'm just too nice of a guy or something..."

It was obvious that nothing like this had ever happened before due to confused stage hands popping out behind the drapes, unsure where to go and whose orders to follow.
