The Key to Dreams
A simple chain,
A simple key hanging.
For each dream, there is a key.
For each secret, there is a key.
I have lots and lots of keys.
But do you have the key to my key?
I have given you a key.
What does it stand for?
That, my friend, is up to you.
Wear it on a chain around your neck reminding you,
That everyone has secrets.
Put it by your pillows side to remind you
To unlock your dreams potential.
Keys are curious things.
Only the wisest of us know how to use them properly.
They can be found in the most unusual of places,
But are used in the most common of ways.
Keys don’t have to be a piece of metal.
They could be a certain person you meet on the street,
and suddenly you remember why you live.
It could be a note someone left for you,
or a gentle gesture in the hall,
reminding you of the goodness in the world.
Keys are everywhere in this world,
the question is, however,
What will you do with your Keys?

I opened the door, and Ichijo was waiting there, in his own white tux. I smiled, and he held out his elbow for me to take. I took it, and I closed the door.
We walked down the steps, and I heard whispers as I passed the students.
We walked up to Kaname who was watching me intently, reading the expression on my face as I walked to him, my hand still on Ichijo's elbow.
"Ready Ichijo? Serenity?" he asked. We both nodded.
This was going to be one hard, long night. I could tell.
Ichijo opened the door for Kaname, and he bowed to me when I walked through the door, trying to make me laugh. I managed a small smile.
He closed the door, and he held my hand.
"What's wrong, Serenity?" he asked. I saw Kaname ahead of us turn his head and read my expression.
"Nothing." I said, putting on my actor's face. He seemed to buy it.
"Come on! Let's have a fun night!" he said. The mood suddenly lifted, so I laughed, and he pulled me faster to the limo tha

I walked up to Cross academy, were there are two classes I was going to the night class, a class full of Vampires. I was a Pureblood Vampire, but my parents were killed by a vampire hunter about a year ago. I had just barely gotten out of the trouble of the wills, money, belongings, and trouble that came with being a sibling to a spoiled brat worth of a brother. I rolled my eyes at my brown haired brother who was going on about how he was going to have the best, most extravagant room in Cross Academy.
I looked around at my surroundings with my dark Blue almost black eyes. I had light brown hair, that had dark brown highlights, that came down to my waist if I had it down. I usually kept it up in a complicated bun, or a braid that came to the middle of my back.
The headmaster had known my parents well, and he offered to take us in as one of his night class students

Bubbles rose. The boy sank. He tried reaching, grabbing the bubbles to pull him up, but they didn't lift him. He tried calling out, but only bubbles came out, and water was flowing in his mouth and nose quickly. His vision became smaller and smaller as he sank lower and lower, pressure building in his head . . .
Yvan gasped when he woke, sweating and panting. The breeze that the sea made blew in from the window that was open, and he shivered as the cold seeped through his thin sleep clothes.
He sighed as he fell back against his Royal feather pillow. Why is it only that Nightmare? Yvan had dreamed the same Nightmare for over 10 years. Ever since he was about 8. He had almost drowned in the same Sea that his sister, Melody, had found her 'true love'.
"True love." Yvan spat as he stared at the ceiling of his room. He had heard that phrase too many times in his life. His parents, his sister, and his annoying, spoiled, not to mention selfish

"Didn't turn out the way you planned, did it, Serenity-sama?" Kaname said with a smirk as I turned around to face him. All of my weaponry was with my other clothes in my bedroom. I didn't think that I would be ambushed like this. Of all the rotten luck my thoughts were interrupted by Kaname once more.
"I gave you a chance, Serenity. And you kicked me aside. I don't like it when people do that to me, you know." he said in a dark tone. I growled.
"Who would want to marry a monster like you?" I asked, just as dark and deadly. He glared at me.
"Why you little " he was cut off, however, by Yuuki. I thought my house was stranger-proof. Apparently not.
"Kaname-sama! Don't hurt her!" Kaname turned to see his long friend run up to him, and stand in-between me and Kaname.
I could see that Kaname was furious. But defeated.
"But, Yuuki. You don't know what this person has done," he tried to explain. She didn't believe his lies.
"She loves him, Kaname. Wh

All is well that ends well. I never thought I would get my happy ever after, and I certainly didn't think that Tsuki even liked Aido. At all.
But, after all, who knows? Love comes in weird ways, in weird times, in weird people. You never quite expect love to come were it does, but when true love comes, that's when it doesn't matter who they are, or what they are even if they were a vampire hunter who wanted nothing of you but to see you dead for a day or where they come from, or what's going to happen next, all that matters what really matters, is what goes on in the heart. It can make you or break you. It can build you up, or smash you down.
It's all your choice. It's only your decision. Nobody else will make it for you. Nobody can.
So will you fight for your loved ones? Or will you let them drop, one by one, into darkness and despair. I think that love is more powerful and potent than anything that this life has to offer

"Thank you, Yuuki-sama." I said quietly. She smiled, and walked to where Kaname had left. When she was out of sight, I looked over at Tsuki, Ichijo, and Aido.
"Are you guys okay?" I asked. They all nodded.
"Serenity?" Ichijo asked. I looked over at him. We both met each other's eyes.
"I love you, so I want you to be happy. I don't care if you marry Zero or me. Just be happy with your decision." he pleaded. My heart melted at those words. I beaconed him over. He came over, and kneeled next to the hot tub. I beaconed him to lean down, and he did. I reached up, grabbed his neck, and pulled him down to were I could catch his lips in my own. I felt his surprise when he didn't respond, but he cupped his hand over my cheek, and kissed back.
We both pulled away, and I saw a tear run down Ichijo's face. My heart crac

"That blasted woman!! I can't get a moments peace with her around!" Yvan had muttered under his breath as he past corner after corner of the maze of halls that made his home. Whenever Yvan couldn't get anymore of Angela's pestering, he would go to the music room for some reason, that Yvan couldn't fathom, Agnela loathed music (that was one of the many reasons why Yvan disliked Angela); she would never even step a foot into the room without paling, then excusing herself from the premises. Yvan would hide in the room until Angela gave up pacing in front of the double doors waiting for him to come out.
Yvan ran into the music room, and he tried to get his breath back. He felt eyes on him, and he looked towards the piano. To his surprise, he was looking at another boy. He looked like Angela, with shorter brown hair, jelled and combed back, and dark brown eyes staring almost glaring at him. He looked to be about 12 or 14 years old.
"Let me guess, Angela?" th

"I think I'm going to be sick," Yvan whispered to Alrik.
"So then go to the bathroom. I'll cover you."
Yvan gratefully rushed to the men's bathroom, and looked at himself in the mirror. He was pale, which clashed painfully against his almost white shirt and dark blue vest.
"I can't believe I'm here, I can't believe I'm doing this. I can't believe my parents, I can't believe I'm doing this!!" His reflection hissed to himself.
He felt the boat slowly tip as a wave came, and Yvan's reflexes made him grip the sink. He glanced at himself again, and his skin suddenly had a green tint to it. He felt his stomach lurch, and he whipped around and spilled the contents of his dinner into the toilet.
He felt slightly better after that, but he still felt unsteady, and his hands were starting to shake.
"Pirates!!" somebody screamed outside. It was his mom. Suddenly the boat tipped, and Yvan made his way out of the bathroom to see the entire boat in chaos.
Yvan ran to the edge of the boat, but the boa

Yvan tossed and turned most of the night, which was hard when your bed is a sheet tied to the mast and to another post, and most of the men in the room were snoring loud enough to drown out any noise, especially the ocean crashing against the side of the boat, making the wood creak beneath him.
It seemed as if he was only asleep for 2 minutes-- and for all he knew, he really could've-- when the captain's voice penetrated his usual drowning dream.
"Yvan. Get up."
Yvans eyes flew open, gasping.
The Captains eyebrows came together in confusion.
"Did I startle you?"
Yvan paused, closed his eyes for a moment as the captain contemplated what happened.
The captain could see that Yvan had been through something terrible in his dream because he was drenched in sweat. She could tell that he was struggling for breath and he didn't get much sleep from the dark purple bruises under his eyes.
She was surprised to see Yvans normally clear blue eyes tearing up and full of fear.
The captain had no idea

“Yes?” You smiled at Arthur.
“I love you.”
“I love you too Arthur.” You beamed at him, his lips drifting lightly across yours.
Arthur bit back tears. He had tried to stop the memories that overwhelmed him, but they just kept coming.
You twirled through the field, your white dress flowing out about you. You looked so happy.
Arthur chased after you, laughing.
“You can’t catch me!” you teased.
“Want to bet love?”
Arthur caught up to you and tackled you, pinning you under him. You laughed in pure delight. He picked a small flower and threaded it in your hair, wishing the moment would never end.
Arthur walked slowly over the dead autumn leaves, coming up on a low black gate. The wild flowers he carried rustled as he pushed through.
“It’s like a fairy tale.”
“What is, love?”
Disney Every Month Challenge-Princess and the FrogFor May I decided to choose the one Disney Princess movie I don't think I have drawn any fanart of yet! Princess and the Frog. I watched the movie for the first time last year and it was pretty good. Probably not one of my favorites out of all the Disney princess movies, but still very entertaining and enjoyable. So hopefully since I have not drawn anything from this movie maybe I can get a few fanart pieces done for it this month. I have been kinda out of it lately where my art is concerned...it really showed last month. I was really looking forward to Mulan month and then only managed to get one sketch completed. I just kept feeling like everything I drew turned out horrible...I have these spells sometimes where I just can't focus on it and everything I draw just doesn't turn out right. But hopefully it will be over soon. But until then...here are the features for Princess and the Frog for the month of May!Disney Every Month Challenge-Princess and the Frog11 months ago in Personal More Like This
