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

Gentle rays of the morning sunlight crept between the gaps in curtains, covering Rinku in an unwanted glow. Rinku grumbled, pulling the covers over his head in an attempt to block out the sun.
"Rinku, I'm off to work now please don't be up too late okay." Link voice called down the hall.
"Fine." Rinku replied still groggy and annoyed from being rudely awoken. And with that the front door slammed shut. Rinku was once again left on his own. For a twelve year old he had a lot of independence and was often left to fend for himself while Link was out 'bringing home the bacon.'
One of them had to do it if they were to survive. Their parents had little money for them to inherit and what was left had been taken by their relatives as 'payment' for looking after the brothers.
After a few more minutes of trying to fall back into dream land, Rinku gave up and dragged himself out of bed. Not bothering to hunt out some fresh clothes, he pulled on the ones he had worn

Buzzworth: Of coursssse... Follow me to the Massssster! Heehehehheheheheeheh....
In the darkest depths of Tartarus, screams of eternal suffering can be heard as the demons and souls of the dead are forced into servitude to the monstrous stallion King Sombra. He has successfully taken over his part of Tartarus and has enjoyed a time of which he can call his own. However, he has grown bored of the same thing every day. He wished for something new to happen. It burned in his mind of his defeats and had in mind the thought of revenge against the foolish ponies that dared to defy him. King Sombra's wishes would be met with the help of the old subordinate of Lord Beelzebub, the Elder Necromancer and Royal Adviser for Queen Chrysalis, Buzzworth. He used his magic to return King Sombra to the world of the living so that he and Beelzebub would meet again and do battle.

"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...

Lin and Pipodi walked to the room where the boys were at to notice them all in a circle. They had taken many blank pieces of paper, paint, crayons, pencils and everything available in the girl’s room. Twi held another copy of the book Lin had handed him and Time before. He kept going through it. Lin noticed some pages had been placed inside the book. She looked at Pipodi, who looked as confused as she did, so they walked together and kneeled down around the workshop.

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
Love The Way You LieHe had this habit of always coming back. He thought of it as coming home. But it was always the same routine.

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 young woman looked up at your voice, cheeks reddened from the cold—or possibly from the young brunette standing just behind her, hanging onto her waist with both arms, and nuzzling his cold nose into the crown of her head.

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

“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.”

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.
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.

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."

-Are you ready?- Asked the Portal Master Sword being held by the four young once heroes of legend.
-Just one moment- Said Twi looking at his companions- Uh… look, once we are there, don’t look at me strangely. I already said I look different. People there are used to my looks already- He took a deep breath- Don’t awkward me.
Sky, Time and Windy looked at Twi and nodded firmly.
-Very well. I shall warp you to the Sacred Grove- Affirmed the Master Sword.
Unlike being warped to Lieb’s land, the room wasn’t covered in light. The chamber’s walls began to crumble into sharp, thin, black squares and rectangles, moving around like leaves in a windy day. Soon, they began to rearrange themselves in new places, bonding like pieces from a puzzle. In a matter of seconds, the black pieces began to reveal tall trees and old, broken down buil

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?"

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."

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.
