Compudites was a kind and gentle god, frail and limited in power, but boundless in intellect a patron of sciences, mathematics, and technology. He was the guiding hand behind many of humanity's technological breakthroughs throughout the millennia. But just as technology and discoveries in the maths and sciences depend on others to spread them, Compudites was forever dependent on others to spread his knowledge.

Hetalia meets Kingdom HeartsThis world It was unlike any other they had seen. The trio had always run into a group of wacky and fascinating characters, all trying to accomplish something rather interesting. A mermaid falling in love with a human, a skeleton who wanted to try and run Christmas, a jungle man who lived amongst the apes these guys had seen it all. Usually the adventurers would pitch in and help, gaining some new friends (and possible a new keyblade, in Sora's case) as their reward.

It seemed too normal for their taste. As if there was nothing crazy bound to occur. Little did they know they were wrong oh so very wrong. They had been thrown into the wacky world of Hetalia, and god knows what would happen.
"Doesn't seem like there's much trouble around here "
Sora said to his companions Donald and Goofy. The duck crossed his arms and tapped his foot with a rather unamused look on his face.
"Then why did you tell us to land here?"

She hears the whispers oh so near
A deep despair grows in the seer
Her mom was killed, so on this day
Rose will give Jack Noir hell to pay
Her skin turns black, the horror's mark
The balance tips; she's now GRIMDARK
A castle traversed, nothing found
Rose seeks out the killer hound
She meets with John along the way
Her words are gone, what can she say?
A trail of blood leads up the stairs
At this point Rose no longer cares
The fate of pawns is no concern
Jack's made her hurt; now it's HER turn
At last the pair reaches the top
And what they see makes John's heart stop
His dad, her mom, now bathed in red
Jack stands there, above the dead
The sorrow in John turns to rage
This roof shall be this battle's stage
The pair now has the other's back
And each readies a huge attack
A teleport and Jack is gone
He reemerges behind John
A flash of black, a splash of gore
And John is falling, dead once more
Rose's anger hits its peak
She lets aloud a piercing shriek
The fight renews with bursts of gree

No one will notice what you used to be.
Slip under their noses and pretend,
You're not who you used to be.
Hear the words until you believe them,
Listen to what you tell yourself until you turn the lies into a truth.
Now you're free of everything,
You can be what you wanted to be.
No longer a craving for innocents blood.
No longer a desire for the death of another.
Free of this curse you are,
Fall in love.
Do what you wish.
Nothing felt better than a soft,
Know not of what you don't see,
Lose track of the way you breathe.
Cross out your heart and hope to die,
Throw the blackened thing aside.
Cure the pain and hide.
You never have to share the secrets inside,
It rushes back,
You can't stop it.
You can't hide.
It wasn't enough.
You can't be human Little monster.
You aren't good.
You never were.
You can't keep running.

Neku Sakuraba stood near the Scramble Crossing, his arms folded tightly over his chest with his backside pressed against the nearby wall. He sighed a little bit in thought, his headphones resting around his throat and the cord running down to his lower thighs until it curved again and connected to the port of his MP3. Clad in blue and purple as well as lines of gold, his collar hid those strawberry lips from the world.
The Statue of Hachiko stared down at the boy as the young man stared down the crowd in search of someone he once knew. No, there had never been a promised between the two for a second meeting in the Realground. Not a word about it shared. Just a quick flash of his life before his eyes as a bullet hurdled towards his chest and tore through the clothing and skin to his heart. The organ keeping him alive...

It is just a number,
An obsticle to be overcome.
So why the big deal?
Why all the fear?
On a map
It does not look like much
There you see the truth:
Distance is not much.
Just a drive
Just a plane.
What are a few miles,
A few dollars
To gaze upon
The one you love.
It is a miniscule sacrifice
To look into eachothers eyes.
A small price for
a long-awaited embrace.
A worth-while wait
To kiss that beautiful, porcilen face.

By nipping the warmth away from

Small pebbles of ice fall from high,
Crashing into trees and their out stretched arms
Before tumbling into you, sending small
Burst of mild pain reacting throughout your nerves.
Your shirt is stained by the rain drops,
And a familiar smell lingering in the air.
The drops of rain soak into your skin and
Touch you heart and tickle your soul
Spring is welcomed right back into your world.

You say that It's my fault my life's a mess

The cool wind blew softly through the complex of the Centarus University, carrying with it the crisp leaves of the Centaurus Center autumn. Alpha Centauri B hung low in the sky, bathing the campus in a warm red glow. It was a calm and quiet evening, with most of the classes of the day long since dismissed. Tyrii stood in the center of the plaza, and gazed around at each individual building that surrounded her. After a moment to absorb the scenery, she reached into her pack and grabbed a hastily-written and crumpled note:
Meet me after class at 1800. Room 221b. Tell the receptionist you're here for me.

She checked the time on her phone. 1756. She was going to be late. She gave one last look toward the sky, heaved a long sigh, and headed for the entrance of the Hall of Technology building twenty meters from the center of the plaza.

Bronze flickers within, glints on the scars
Across the windows, carved by the rain
And the curved rows of saxophones inside
Humming voices deep as velvet clouds
Drenched in honey and angel tears
Mourning what we cannot understand
Unfurl wings of gossamer and flit like amber
Shadows of whiskey, shadows of brandy
Shadows of a woman on a hardboiled stool
A christmas candy in her hair, furs across
Slender shoulders, evening dress a glimmer
Of violet pinned with pearls, emeralds
Frozen absinthe crying from her ears
She parts lips so blue that all colors
Collide against it blindly and mirror
That open-mouthed terror; shark skin
In tropical water in the dead of night
Blue. Until the veins beneath sunset wilt
From red to blue in ghoulish delight
And candle flames melt into grey bubbles
Floating from that Blue that is drifting
From her lips and binding each coiling tune
Drifting from the saxophones, until they

Anita arrived within the Fetus of God and confronted Jedah, saying that he was a fool with more power than he could possibly control.
Jedah scoffed at Anita's remarks, but he soon realized who she truly was. Though she was now almost a fully grown woman, she was indeed the one he'd been intending to destroy, the protector of the humans and his greatest threat. Anita and Jedah then did battle, and Anita arose as the winner of the battle. She then used her power, fused with the power of Jedah's soul, to destroy the Shintai.
