Devil in a Tailcoat
"Yes my Lord," the words roll off my tongue with ease.
In anyone's eyes I am a humble servant wanting to please.
Together we've created an impenetrable shell,
No one would believe when this ends I'll drag you to hell.
Enduring any and all humiliation,
I follow your commands with out protestation.
Together we're rising to the task,
Come now Lord, let's put on our masks.
I'll groom you, I'll guide you, I'll guard you,
But nothing is honorable in what I do.
Yours is the pure soul which must remain,
Something everyone seems too eager to obtain.
Time continues to ebb and flow
Not soon before long my efforts will show.
Watching from the shadows with arrogance and greed,
Not soon before long you'll fill my sinister need.

His butler: preconceptions by smilingcrescent
Ciel was a small child. Sebastian could have easily snapped his neck simply enough when the child needed gentle tending (on swollen feet), with his (weakened bones from that) ordeal. Even now, his rapidly beating heart seems it might burst at any moment.
But Sebastian does not crush the boy's throat to send blood, (delicious and sweet with childhood and streaks of viscous, bitter tragedy) into the air, no. He simply listens, longingly, perhaps, to that over-zealous heart. How many beats would it continue on, even after separating from (through) the boy's ribs? The crackand the soft tearing, the wet and lively streams of red

“I hoped…you’d come.” I say, looking at my aunt’s black shoes.
She laughs softly, walking down the cobbled path with a stately elegance. I’d almost forgot her posh bearing in light of….of things. Her hands, cool and steady, brush mine. Then she cups my cheek, forcing me to look up.
Her eyes are bright.
“Why the glum face?” She asks softly, and I realize her lips are as red as her costumes.
My throat is dry. Perhaps calling her here wasn’t the best of ideas. Her familiar expression reveals a half-hidden resemblance to my mother…I could almost forgive, forget.
Sebastian chuckles from behind. His silence is broken at last. When I turn to look, his butler’s façade has cracked. The expression is just mad.
These last six years, I’ve played Dorian Gray to his Lord Henry. That foil, so possessive of the painting t
His Butler, Trick Or Treat It was a brisk London morning at the Phantomhive Manor. A light morning's mist floated over the grounds, giving the place an eerie feeling. As if it didn't already have that, the young lord of the place thought. It was a rare occasion when Ciel Phantomhive, the kid Earl, was up early of his own accord, but this was one such time. Not knowing how to dress himself the young boy simply pulled on a robe to walk about, not even bothering to don the patch that would usually cover his right eye.His Butler, Trick Or Treat2 years ago in Humor More Like This
Now he stood silent and aloof to any and all events around him, looking out over his vast estate from the roof. He had never liked this time of year, though there was always a boost in business for the greatly successful toy company he owned, Funtomhive. It was too close to Christmas and his birthday. The day his life took an eternal turn for the worse...but I suppose you don't want me to go too far into th

The bar is still dark, but a globe of warm light halos my aunt. Simultaneously, it obscures most of her expression from me, and draws my eye to Grell. He stands dressed in what looks like my Aunt’s red coat, and his hair is as fiery as hers is.
It’s all rather unreal. Later, I suspect the shock of it will come down on my double-fold. For now, I just try and follow what’s going on.
“What do you think of my real look, Sebastian?” Teeth flash and Grell gives a showmanly spin.
Sebastian doesn’t so much as smile. He looks down on Grell. “You disgust me.” He steps out into the cleared space, and his heels sound softly on the tile. Ever so slightly, he bends at the waist.
I tap my fingers, impatient for my orders to be carried out. This needs to end. But I don’t need to wait long—Grell runs at Sebastian, his chainsaw held at an angle. His laughter echoes

Author's Note: Just to warn, this will contain offensive language and mature content. In order for the reader to meet Sebastian, something tragic needs to happen because I don't think Sebastian will appear out of the blue and be like "Heyyyyy, what's goooood?" ^^U The reader will be abused in the beginning only. I'm not gonna focus on that too much, but just enough to understand what's going on. There will be NO raping of the reader because I don't want to write scenes like that. Anywayy, Kuroshitsuji is a pretty dark story sooo hopefully this plot will work out?

This marriage was not out of love nor was it arranged between families.
It was forced.

Ciel licks his lips free of cream, presses his hands together, and flicks his tongue against his teeth. He leans forward at the boy's off-handed comment, his elbows brushing the table. His fellow students recognize the change in his demeanor, but no one says much of anything.
"What was that?" he asks sharply. His eyes, like his tone, focus, though they can only see the one. But before they reply, he drops his hands, folding them neatly on his lap. He covers the lapse in attention with a smile-- and with the childish mask back in place, he waits.
"...the P4 and their fags," Gilbert Harvey, a boy from the countryside estates with no sense of hierarchy to Ciel's way of thinking, explain readily enough. His cherubic face makes him seem younger yet, but he has a habit of squinting that masks any natural charm. "They're leaving tomorrow for a special study, leaving their dorms' next-in-charge behind. They'll be busy packing the whole night!"

"Just get me home," I mutter, trying to disguise my labored breathing. But I apparently I have the worst luck todayeven I can hear crackling and whistling wheezes in my voice. Doubtless it's even louder to him due to the superior hearing of my trained dog. Trained demon. Whatever.
My head hurts, and my lungs feel like a stretched balloon. No matter how deep I try to breath, it isn't enough. I can't bear to be held so closelyeven Sebastian's stronggentlearms feel like they're crushing my lungs. Restricting my breathing even more.
"Now, now, focus on something besides your discomfort, little master," Sebastian coaxes, effortlessly dodging the bullets of my customer's rival gang.
I, on the other hand, have endured a scraped knee and elbow from being forcibly shoved down to keep from being shot. Sometimes I think he's less than perfect on purpose. Only with me of course.

Red mouth, sharp teeth behind closed eyes, that's all I can see.
The sound of the door opening draws my attention. I hunch farther into my covers, and peer out into the interrupted darkness.
My "personal assistant" stands at the door, bent at the waist with a tray of tea, his trendy shirt and vest still impeccable even at this hour. All this could be overlooked, if it weren't for his face. That is, his smirk. He smiles at me with half-lidded eyes and says something that I don't quiet catch his lips move, at any rate.
With his meticulously styled-to-look-casual hair and his tight fitting black clothes, he looks like a celebrity of some kind or someone in the grittier part of town, maybe working in a casino.
He takes several steps over to my bed and reaches out to smooth my pillow with his long hands. I notice something like a hum, or some other soothing noise. "Chamomile tea for you, little master."
I sit up, and accept the cup. Sebastian holds very still, keeping the tr

Ciel sat in his plush chair and watched mournfully as the flakes of newly frozen water began to fall onto the windowsill. He sighed under his breath, a rare occurrence. No one was around at that moment so he was able to show what little emotion he still had buried deep inside him. His eyebrows furrowed in pain as he slowly repeated the words his parents had told him on his birthday.
"Our precious little Ciel, our special son with so much joy in his heart" His mother and father were smiling widely as a smaller version smiled back. He looked... so... happy. Something he now felt was unattainable by any stretch of the imagination. " I will never be happy" he replied as softly as possible.
It was a day to remember but in his heart all he could do was feel a tightening in his chest. It was burning now and he immediately believed that an asthma attack was coming on. No, he shook his head. It was just the fact that the pain was trying to collapse his entire body. More flash backs

You wake up in the middle of the night, to find yourself sleeping in a soft bed.
'How did I get here.'
You raise your hand up to your head and feel the bandages. Your eyes widened but you then quickly calmed down.
'That's right. I hit my head on a rock or something. But how did I get into this bed? Also who bandaged my head?' You then looked out the window to see it was a full moon.
You open the window to feel a nice cool breeze through you [h/l] [h/c] hair. Your window looked out to the garden.
'The garden is so beautiful. The white roses are so white that they glow in the moon light.' You were so amazed the you hadn't notice the crow that was flying at you. You stepped back from the window out of shock. The black crow landed on the windowsill and it was looking right at you with its deep black eyes. You stepped towards it and lit its feet climb onto your fingers.
'Did it come to see me?' You then noticed a little tube strapped to its

I wake up breathing hard. My head is filled of half-remembered memories, mixed with terrifying (probably) fictitious images of Sebastian's true form. High heels and burning eyes. A face marked out by swirling darkness-- something horrible underneath, I know, but I just can't make it out-- all overlaying his sly smile. His knowing eyes and mocking tone.
In my memory, Sebastian's mouth curves up as though to smile, but then the tip of his tongue touches his lip. Decidedly (dangerously) slow, he licks his lower lip. As if contemplating the taste of something...
"You have made a great sacrifice in blood, pain and shame. The toll has been paid..." amusement where there should be none. "...so you may make a binding contract with me and grant your wishes-- or not-- by your own will." The words are low, and suggestive, like the quiet murmurings my mother used before, when she was urging me to bed. His actual words are like thistles sticking in my ears.

"I'll go with you as long as I can bring my butler." You were carefully positioning yourself to the edge of the bed.
"It's fine." Lord Randall replied as they waited for them outside the door.
"All these distractions are frustrating me." You let out a sigh, wincing slightly when you tried to move your legs off the bed. They were sore from when Randolf was hitting them repeatedly with the bed post. Sebastian helped move you, knowing it would take a longer time without assistance. After discharging yourself from the hospital, you followed the policemen into a carriage, taking you and Sebastian to the Scotland Yard station. You were led into a simple room with a few chairs and a desk. It was small, but it was only used for questioning.
"First, we would like to ask you, how did you get your injuries?" Fred inquired, a notepad in his hand for documentation.
"From my husband."

in which Ciel tests Sebastian's limits
Ciel’s been out too long.
His wind-chilled cheeks have gone beyond rosy pink, and his lips glisten as he gingerly pouts. As he shakes his head, he licks his lips to moisten them, but he cannot clear his sullen expression, or the irritation from his mind.
From the shadow of the carriage, Sebastian watches his charge. He notices the earl’s impatience, and wonders how much of it is from...internal cues.
He’s been waiting for a box of fabric from the company supply room for entirely too long. As he thinks about the choice that lays ahead of him, he fidgets. When, he wonders, will Sanders come out?
He lifts his chin and clucks his tongue. “Hurry up with it already!”
Finally, the man comes out. He titters a little, more anxious that Ciel looks so chilled, and attempts to get the whole thing over with. He pushes a large box into Ciel’s unexpecting arms.

“Mother?” You called her name now, knowing that she must be there, somewhere in the manor that you hardly remembered, to answer you. The mother that you could barely remember. She hovered there, in the back of your desperate, clinging mind, only a ghost in what was now a different child. You.
…You were not the child you used to be. You were a new person, someone who had been twisted and changed into another form by the hands of supernatural forces, forces that you did not know even existed. And now you found that you no longer knew much of what you used to. You no longer found pleasure in so many of the things you loved, and everything about you…
… was different.
You knew that you loved your mother. But she, your beautiful idol, was now part of another world in which you did not belong. You existed in that reality, but

I let out a loud yawn as I stretching to make myself feel more awake. I pawed at the area to my right trying to feel Sebastian, with my eyes still closed. All I felt was a soft fabric and a rough piece of paper.
"Damn," I said aloud to myself. I'm not sure what I was cussing about; the fact that he had left me another note that I couldn't read as I still hadn't told him I was unable to, the fact that he had left me a freshly washed and pressed maid uniform on my pillow (which seemed significantly more revealing than my last one). Or possibly it was the fact I had missed an opportunity to watch him sleep. I pulled on my uniform before looking at the note folded up on my clothes. I smiled at the piece of paper as I opened it, instead of his curly calligraphy style writing there were beautifully drawn diagrams and pictures showing my day's jobs.
To start he had drawn a picture of a feather duster and the living room. Then a sink of wat

You walk up the center of the great room to take your turn. Plunging your hand into the large red handbag Grell was holding, you begin looking for an item. You decide on a soft piece of cloth. After pulling it out of the bag, you notice it has the letter "S" embroidered on it, along with a small kitten silhouette. "Whose handkerchief is this?"
Sebastian stood up to claim it, but Grell quickly intervened. "No, I was supposed to get my Bassy's item, not you, now put it back." He angrily stomped his feet and flailed around. "No one's going to be in the closet with him but me."
Sebastian continued walking your way with a calm smile on his face. "Now Grell, I don't believe that's the way this game is played. Perhaps we'll play this again sometime. You may get your chance then." He turned to you and smiled, holding out his hand. "May I?"
A blush crept over your face as you nodded, giving him your hand. "You may."
"Oh this is just making me sick. Will you two please get into the close
