Loki sat in his room, lying down but not sleeping. Thinking of his brother, thinking of Tony...
" I can't believe what's happened.." It was cold in his room, and dark, but he liked it that way, it matched how he felt.. Now that he was back on Earth, without trying to attack it and not locked up in Tony's tower, he found it was much like Asgard, surrounded by people but still utterly alone...
When he had been young whenever he'd had a nightmare, he'd never gone to his parents room. Instead, when he had been afraid, he fled to Thor's room.
To Thor's always awaiting arms... " Why must the world clutter, why must love wither? If only things could ...- beautiful things, could last forever..."
Outside his door, he heard footsteps, and a sliver of light widened through the room. Loki sat up in his bed.
" Brother? Do you still sleep?"
" Come in..." he choked out, finally glad to have some company.
On the Sea Beneath the SkyGolden flickers danced on the pale faces of the circle, hushed whispers wafting out from the gathering by the glowing coals. It was the third night of the coming-of-age, the no-longer-little ones from each of the surrounding tribes taken out together in the openness of the untamed world. There were a few in the group that stood out, discernible even in the thick coverings of the night. There was Jiu-yeil, son of the carpenters, impressive form already bulging with strength and muscle more fitting of a man twice his size. The brothers, Senniare and Elieten of cloth-maker, sat donned in simple but the finest of all their travelling robes. And very slightly apart from the throng of a dozen others was the quiet Meiella, orphaned as an infant, niece of medicine woman.On the Sea Beneath the Sky3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Would you miss me? If I were to die tomorrow?"
I pursed my lips into a frown, unsure of how to respond to his question. In all the time I've served Ciel Phantomhive he's never been one to openly wallow in self pity. To hear him open up even in an odd question as this is very out of the ordinary, "Of course." I smiled, taking his hand, shocked at just how much smaller than me he is, "You are my master, without you I am lost."
"Lost " he murmured.
That's exactly what he is now, lost. Somewhere in this city the humans call London my young master resides, without me and most likely helpless. Adrenaline pulses through me, my entire being burns with the need to see that my young master is alright. To see that nonchalant expression stare up at me expectantly silently demanding of my whereabouts. Worse case scenarios play in my mind, Ciel has an unnatural ability to be abducted by our enemies, and our enemies aren't the most forgiving of his past deeds.
He could be anywhere, in anyone's

Do you know that you are killing me with your words?
Do you know that you are choking me with your thoughts?
Does it show?
That the smile I wear is superficial?
That I keep my feeling locked up?
That I ...hurt...?
What did you say?
You say that you understand
That you know how I feel.
But do you know of the pain that is ripping me appart?
Do you know what is underneath?
Have you opened my heart?
Have you heard my screams for help?
Have you seen that my heart is tearing?
CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT I AM ALONE TRAPPED IN THE DARK?

Your screams are only to make yourself feel better
Your tears are only for self pity,
Yes, you are

That is why you hurt me
That is why you DESTROY me

Um... all the other stuff Check? I think
I looked at the counter doubtfully. Baking was not really my forte. I mean, sometimes there was the occasional (and accidental) success, but other times well. It was probably best not to talk about it. It was a wonder that my parents let me bake after that little incident with the cookies... Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all?
I shook my head. No, I thought. It's his birthday, for crying out loud. I have to do something. How hard can it be?
Immediately I slapped myself. Well, mentally, at least. That right there was a sentence of doom. Anything that would come after those five dreaded words couldn't be good. Still I was rather desperate, and besides, I'm not exactly the luckiest person in the world. A little more bad luck won't really make much of a difference, would it?

Really, I mean, you ever heard an interesting story that started on a sunny day with mild cloud cover around an hour or so before dinnertime?
Exactly. Moving on.
The air held a coldness that seeped through brick and stone. It crawled through flesh, freezing blood in icy veins, chilling bones like a slithering ghost in the blackness.
...but not so cold that it was a snow-storm. Cotton candy floating down from an inky sky, shining like diamond eyes in the starlight as soft flakes swirl and dance on feather-light feet in the breeze...

Rain lashed from the depths of the cruel heavens, wind whipping from the starless smothering blanket above. Thunder roared in fury, cracking alongside his bright lover as she streaked her fire to the lonely earth.
Yes, lightning is a chick. It makes sense. Hair of white-gold light from her glowing moon-face, gown of silver thread spreading down her lithe figure, hem sweeping against the c

Chapter 9: Count Merry-Go-Round, the ostracized resident
"Where are we going, Zero?" Sophia asked that same night when Zero got home soaking wet and with a black eye. The second he got back home, he woke Sophia up from her nap and got her out the door, telling her to follow behind him as they speed-walked down the snowy lane. He gave her a red-striped winter jacket along the way. "What happened? A-are we in trouble?"
Zero wanted to say "yes" but he replied to her with an unworried smile, "Not at all, not at all. I-I just want you to meet someone who could help you out."
"You mean he could take me home?"
"There's a VERY small possibility but at least it's a possibility. Now a little faster, Sophia."
She increased her walking speed. She held on to Zero's cold arm to keep up; he also told her to stay very close to him. They walked past the other residents chatting with each other and playing around i

It's been six years since my adventure in the Spirit World, six years since I've seen him. When I was able to return to my world with my parents and before I ran to the tunnel where they were waiting for me, Haku did promise me that we will see each other again some day soon.
Having strong faith in him since that day, I've been waiting patiently for Haku to come into the human world and find me. Even at the times I become very impatient and had almost about given up on waiting for him, my memories of him and my strong feelings for Haku make me think twice because he could appear anytime, possibly when I least expect it one of these days.
Looking out my bedroom window, as I thought about Haku, I decide to go out for a walk. Leaving my room once my light was turned off and I closed the door behind me, my mom said from t

A Mannequin's Only Flaw The ideal vessels of life are those created without the intentions of supporting such purpose; specifically, mannequins. What I mean to say, is that a mannequin that is blessed with life is generally one with more purpose in it's existence over any living being that happens to be birthed. Where as living beings are generally given life as a birth right, the mannequin's sole purpose is to, essentially, model the shape of a being as to show the appearance of a style based on such shape. Or, if you're the type to carry conversations with yourself, you could use the mannequin as a companion. The idea that a...puppet of sorts...could walk freely with it's own emotions, ideals, and opinions on cats is perplexing on it's own in theory, let alone in practice. That being said, there is one such example in the Clockwork Cities, and he happens to be a popular friend to many citizens.A Mannequin's Only Flaw2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

They Say I'm GuiltyOf the nearly eighty female prisoners that had answered my request, I had narrowed my choices down to two of them. The first was a voluptuous, porcelain-skinned brunette that would make my brother drool in seconds. The second was a golden-haired, frail little piece of work, and normally I would have dismissed her during the first round of eliminations, but something kept her there. Maybe it was the way she stared at me with her venomous green eyes, but I couldn't be sure. In any case, I had my two choices set before me, each isolated in separate cells on opposite ends of the jail so that I might observe them more personally.They Say I'm Guilty3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Section I: What are Vampires?
Vam-pire \vam-pÓr\ n 1: a night-wandering bloodsucking ghost 2: a person who preys on other people; esp.: a woman who exploits and ruins her lover 3: vampire bat
There is some nonfiction in that definition, and yet there is much fiction. Myth and reality. To survive the vampire holocaust, we must first understand exactly what it is we are fleeing. A vampire is, in simplest form, a human affected by a horrible dementia-inducing blood disease. These poor souls have, by some means, been infected by a disease similar to anemia, in which blood is short in quantity. Some symptoms are also similar to anemia (Paleness, irregular sleep conditions.) But the similarity ends there.
It was long speculated that the disease, which has been dubbed Neuroplasma (due to its eventual psychological effect), was a virus, but the theory was later discarded after recorded autopsies confirmed that it was indeed caused by an unidentifiable infectious agent

You're like a song forever stuck in my head,

Since you live in your popular world,

none of which are me.
