For a FriendI haven't been the best friendFor a Friend6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I hope I haven't been the worst
I hope that you'll remember me
Even when all we know is gone
You'll always be in my mind
I'll never forget all the paths you helped me find
Please forgive my past mistakes
And I'll remember you had none
No matter where you are you'll be here
I'll never forget you, nor your tears
I'll always help you if you only ever asked
No matter how weak you think you are
In my mind you're always stronger
Even if you can't hold on or fight much longer
Then just stay to hear me say my last goodbye
I can't blame you for anything
Please don't have any regrets
You're life is your own to live
But I ask you live it well
I'll always remember the stories you'd tell
But I have one last thing to say
Before I say goodbye
I have to tell you that I love you
Like only a best friend could
So please remember that about me
I hope you give life another chance
Before you think death is what's coming next
That's the way it goes

"DERYN!" Alek shouted as he shook her limp body trying to wake her up, get her to talk, or do something.
Alek's arm landed on a small box as he continued to shake Deryn (as if that would help) and knocked it over. The clattering helped Alek see through his panic and look at what box he had knocked over.
"God's wounds," Alek breathed as he saw that this box was Deryn's smelling salts, "This could barking work!"
He opened the box and waved it under her nose trying to spread the sharp smell to wake Deryn up. Finally Deryn opened her eyes and Alek sighed with relief, "Thank providence that you're alright, Deryn! I thought you had just died! Are you all right?"
"Oooooohhhh... Alright isn't the right word here, I think," Deryn managed to get out before hurling right on the bed.
"Schiesse! What's the matter Deryn?" Shouted Alek and began to spout off all kinds of Austrian swears.
Deryn looked up at Alek and whispered breathing hard, "Get... get... Dr... Barl...Barl...

Deryn's first thoughts were, "Wh-where a-am I?" then, "W-what's going on?" and finally, "Am I KISSING ALEK?!?!" Her eyes snapped open and she pulled away from Alek shocked at what she did now. Her head pounded, but she managed to get out, "Wh-what were you DOING Alek?"
Alek leaned back looking shocked, as he saw Deryn wince from her pounding ribs and head, but managed to compose himself and reply, "Y-you're alive, Dyl- erm, what's your true name?"
Deryn stared at him, unable to process that Alek knew who she really was, answering, "Deryn, and how did you know that I'm a barking girl?!"
Alek blushed, whispering, "Y-you were hurt so I-"
Alek broke off blushing furiously as Deryn understood what had happened and replied in her girl voice, "So you know, and hate me, at this point that you've seen what I've kept from you all these months," Deryn sighed and hung her head, "I-I... I'm sorry Alek, but I thought that because I was a commoner I wouldn't matter t

By Your Side, Forever and Ever
Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.
I'll support your task,
Love The Way You Lie (Sasuke)He had this habit of always coming back. He thought of it as coming home. But it was always the same routine. One comment, one sentence, a word, a fight, a strike, on the floor, screaming and crying with tears flowing harder than anything, slamming doors and broken hearts and abandoned promises.Love The Way You Lie (Sasuke)2 months ago in Drama More Like This
He would leave every time, or be left. He would break down, sliding down the wall with his back to the cool surface, breaking down and pouring his soul into his battered cries. He would cradle his bruising cheek, rub the raw marks around his neck, try to make them go away.
They never did.
But he had this habit of always coming back. It didn’t matter how often he was hurt, didn’t matter how many hurtful words were spit in his face. It didn’t matter, the acid burning at his heart and eating away his essence. Because he always crawled back, begging for something he ultimately knew he couldn’t have.
All he had ever wanted was to feel loved. To be accepted. To be needed and w

The brunette sniffed heavily, wiping under his eyes with the back of his hand. "I didn't think anyone was here," he admitted, tone thick and heavy and humiliated. Some strong shinobi he was, breaking down crying in the middle of the woods at night like a lost child. He should have been more attentive, should have realized his old teacher was right there.
"Well I am, Sasuke," Kakashi responded after a moment's silence. His tone spoke of hidden promises and assurances beyond that of literal sense. "I've always been here."
The Uchiha chose to ignore the way his chest tightened and his eyes burned, fighting back more tears even as he began to lose. "I've missed you all," he suddenly choked out, turning to Kakashi with a st

I tried to save you, but there was nothing I could do. You wouldn’t listen to me, no matter how much I screamed and cried. I tried to help, but you pushed me away. I tried to get you to see reason and I really wanted to help, no matter what it cost me; you did nothing but keep me distanced.
It’s my fault though. I know that. I should have tried harder. I should have known that you would leave us that day. I should have been there for you when you needed me the most. But I wasn’t. I wasn’t there for my best friend, even though I knew something was wrong. I shouldn’t have listened when you told me to go away, and now everyone is suffering because of me.
I’m so sorry.
It felt like we always did everything together back in those days. It would be just the four of us, hanging out and having fun, all of us smiling and laughing. Except, you never really smiled, did you? And we never noticed, it seemed. Maybe you thought we didn’t care
Waking Is A Dream (SasuNaru)Deep blue eyes snapped open and instantly he was aware of his prickling skin, his racing heart, his shallow, quipped breaths. He felt like he was suffocating, still felt like he was being chased, and felt like if he didn’t move, didn’t flee, his life was in grave peril. He could see the ceiling of his room, felt the heat of his lover lying next to him, but couldn’t seem to shake that terrorized feeling of having nearly been caught.Waking Is A Dream (SasuNaru)1 week ago in General Fiction More Like This
Naruto rolled onto his side so quietly and so carefully one would think he was trying to avoid alerting anyone to his presence. And somewhere in his mind, he still was. Honestly, he couldn’t even remember his dream, hadn’t from the second he awoke, but it was prominent enough in his thoughts that it frightened him yet. It was with a tremble and a tingling in his gut that he subtly pressed close to his brunette partner’s back, leeching warmth from him.

The fire crackled nicely in front of him, drowsiness threatening to take over again. He stood and stretched, then headed out the door of his quarters. Someone ran into him just then, nrealy sending him flying.
"Watch it! - Oh! Sorry Dad!" the young boy ran to Alek and hugged him. Alek laughed and ruffled the boy's hair.
"Where exactly are you headed off to in such a rush, Jaspert Volger?" Alek asked, holding the boys shoulders.
"Out to the courtyard. Master Klopp told me he would let me take a few steps around in the runabout today!"
Alek studied his son's excited face. He looked so much like his mother, sharp fine features and bright blue eyes, but dark hair like his father. His eyes sparked with excitement, and his smile was as charming as anything.
"Alright, get along now. Remember, you've got a few lessons this evening with Dr. Barlow tonight"
Little Jaspert sighed, looking annoyed.

“Well I would,” you explained amicably, brushing [h/c] locks from your face, “but I really hate chewing the skin. It gets stuck in my teeth and makes my jaw hurt and it just doesn’t taste good.”
“But I thought you loved apples.” Choji set the ships next to the basket with an almost forlorn look. Although you didn’t know it, he had brought apples of every color on the picnic just for you.
“Oh I do love apples!” you amended quickly, cheeks tingeing a light shade of pink. To think that the boy you’d always had a crush on had noticed such a small detail… “It’s just that the skin—”
“Well I’ll peel it for you.”
Chapter 2 EditThe next few days were extremely difficult for Alek. He couldn't keep his mind off Deryn. Each time he looked at her he noticed just how feminie she was. It was amazing that no one else noticed. When he wasn't with her, he was wishing he was.Chapter 2 Edit4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Even more amazing was how attracted he was to her after only knowing her true gender for less than a week. It was like he'd known her his whole life. Well, he really had. Before coming to the Leviathan, it was like his life was a blur, a dream that never really existed at all. She was the only friend he'd ever really had. He felt completed when he was with her.
"What are you doing, you fool?" Deryn snapped at him as they were walking Tazza together one evening. Alek had absentmindedly reached for her hand, and she had to slap it away.
"Sorry, sorry. I am." he said, angry that he had let himself slip like that.
"You know how that would look to others, bum-rag. I don't need people thinking anything else along with what the already most likely do."

"Lilit, whatever this is, can't it wait until I get out of work? I'm trying to make myself a living - "

Alek made a face but continued on. It best be important ot drag her halfway across the world looking for him. Soon she ducked inside the doorway of an abandoned apartment building. Alek was almost out of breath, not having ran like that since being aboard the Leviathan. Lilit looked fine however, even in her black silk clothes.
"What's this about? How in the world did you find me?" Alek sat, catching his breath.
Lilit sat next to him, smiling. "I just had to know where to look."
He looked at her incredulously. "Seriously. How?"
She laughed, her face looking very tired, and much older than she remembered. "As soon as Nene heard of your 'death', she laughed. She knew there was no way you could ever be dead. She told me she suspected it would be too much fo

I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

"Deryn, have you read the paper yet?" he called out. Footsteps sounded from the other room, and Deryn entered. She was wearing trousers and a buttoned up shirt, hair cropped short as ever.
"No, why? Something good?" her eyes were bright.
"Yes, actaully, I think you'll find it amusing." he handed her the news, crossing his arms and watching her as she read the front page.
Her face went from curiosity to astonishment. "Blisters, Alek, your a genious! How did you know?" she looked up at him, amazed.
Alek chuckled. "I know Volger about as well as I know myself. The wildcount gets what he wants. He wasn't going to let a little thing like my 'death' stop him from finishing the wishes of my father. Volger is a loyal man, I suspected he might go this far."

The ragged but soft voice over his shoulder almost made him jump. Almost. Thankfully he had heard the younger shinobi open the door to his office before he spoke up, and had noted the scuffle of feet against their worn wooden floor.
The brunette in question turned to glance in the direction of his lover, eyes narrowed with concern. Naruto was disheveled and wrought with a case of bed-head at best, eyes red and puffy from sleep, expression generally distraught. He looked like he was barely holding back his trembling.
"What are you doing up so late?" Sasuke gently asked, extending a hand for his love to take. A quick glance at his desk clock told him he'd been working until nearly three in the morning again.
"Had a bad dream," Naruto mumbled in response, rubbing at one of his eyes and slowly shuffling forward. He took Sasuke's hand gratefully, sinking onto his knees and nuzzling his head into the older man's chest.

Through the maze of shades to the heart of forest
In the night we dance, enjoying the endless feast
Yet can you hear
How the past keeps haunting us for our sins

the waters take her away with her cursed mark.

If I do not say it, I fear I'll go insane.
I have a feeling that I cannot fight
It is eating at my insides
It is playing with my mind.
I really have to say this
Because you have a right to know
I feel this friendship is growing
Into the unknown.
I'm feeling something different
That I wish I knew.
I never knew I could feel this way
And feel this way for you.
I hope you don't get angry
I hope you don't get mad
Because I don't want to lose you
Forever I'd be sad.
I just wanted to let you know
This feeling that continues to grow
That I'm falling for you
Into this world called love.
I hope you aren't upset with me
Because I don't want to lose a friend
But I have this other feeling
Like I would never feel this way again.
So tell me what you are thinking
Yes, I know I'm scared.
But maybe if we hold on together
We can find a love to share.
So tell me what is going on
In that mind of yours
Because I don't want to drive myself crazy

Deryn entered her private chambers, exhausted from three days of nonstop work on the Leviathan. Finally she was able to take a few minutes to change out of her sweaty uniform and change into something more appropriate. She sighed, remembering that they'd arrive to Japan the very next day and Alek would vanish from the Leviathan forever. He would probably vanish into the wilderness and somehow find a way back to the main land and hideout until this barking daft war would be over. Deryn shook her head, clearing her thoughts of Alek from her mind, reminding herself that he was a barking prince -that's archduke you dummkopf!- and she was a lowly mooneye-eyed lassie that served as an airman. She couldn't fall for him; she couldn't, unless she wanted him to run a mile. Anyway once Alek was gone, so would her feelings for him, too. Deryn put on a determined look on her face and chased away all thoughts of Alek that entered her mind.
