I was falling. I could feel nothing, I could hear only cries of my friends, calling my name, and I heard a mix of thoughts. Too many. I couldn't distinguish what they were. Laughing, I heard that as well, laughing and roaring. The demons had done something. I wasn't sure what. I was scared. Curse my stupid eyes...maybe I wouldn't be as scared if I had something to feel, to see. I didn't. Arms wrapped around me. Arms? Who's? Who was embracing me? There was a warm liquid. It smelled like blood....I didn't have time to think about that. Our positions swapped, he shifted his weight to so make me higher up than him.....I could hear his thoughts, it was Daemon. He was panicked, and scared, thinking of my safety. I heard a thud. We hit the ground, I couldn't stand the thought of crushing him.....and after hearing a crack, I was terrified. He continued to breathe, thank goodness.

Glashia was too busy taking action to hear Xue's words. She knew her friends' need and had more concern than Xue was aware of. She was fumbling through her satchel for something; the importance of which reflected in her eyes.
As soon as her fingers found it she whipped the small flask out of the bag, threw the cap off and started chugging. She needed mana; the battle had taken a toll on her.
Keij coughed and tried to keep his legs steady for a moment to relieve his wife but he overestimated his abilities and collapsed again. Xue groaned, struggling to steady them both. All of them were exhausted and Xue's side was covered in filth-clogged cuts. "What...are you doing..." She asked under heavy breaths.
Glas didn't respond but simply finished downing

¿Cuántas cervezas en un año?
Poco cristalina y llena de impurezas,
espumante, rubia, amarga,
la fiel compañía de la amigable cerveza
se siente en la vida, larga.
Cuelga de tu mano,
Extensión de tu brazo.
Señalas con ella,
¡Qué útil botella!
Resalta un festín,
Ve la noche hasta su fin.
Sí, en sabor es amarga,
Mas su compañía es alegre y larga.
De niño en la playa, una probadita;
En noches de estudio afianza las ideas;
En el juego amoroso, para iniciar la cita;
¡Cerveza, mi musa, jamás escaseas!
Detente y piensa conmigo,
¿Existe acaso otra medida,
Que las cervezas que has bebido
para saber cómo avanza tu vida?
Y es que su presencia es grata,
Es divertida, amena, y barata.
Aunque se adentra más que eso, harto.
Su presencia es requisito y de ahí yo parto.
Si tú o yo hacemos memoria
de las latas y botellas que hemos vaciado,
nos faltará tiempo y sobrarán historias,

You were walking alone to school, like usual and everyone snickered at you. The goth freak that always was the outsider.

The kiss before they invaded the fire nation.
She had entirely forgotten about it.
Her first kiss.
With her best friend, who was also like a little brother to her.
The feeling in her stomach grew worse.
Is this what people are talking about when they say you get 'butterflies in your belly'? She had always imagined it totally different, more like happiness and joy instead of guilt and sickness.
Was it wrong to kiss him? Does he have a crush on me? Am I having a crush on him? Am I raising his hopes for something more than friendship?
So many questions and no answers.

Deep down, he wanted to grab her by the shoulders and shake her—to shake some sense into her, maybe—but he wasn't that kind of person, and so he couldn't, and didn't. Instead, he stood still, trying to keep the agitation out of his expression and the pain out of his eyes, all the while chewing on his lip so hard he could taste metal.CanadaxReader: Aren't We All2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He'd never wanted anything so badly, had never fought with Alfred over anything growing up—had always thought of himself as a sharer, a man of compromise and sacrifice, but now, he wasn't so sure anymore. He wasn't sure he could share her. He thought he might fade into a million individual cells held together by a ghost of a human shape if he ever had to compromise on anything regarding her.
Yet she, unable to read his mind, only bit her lip and grimaced apologetically, oblivious to the twisting in his stomach.

She awoke in a daze.
Groggy, and confused, she clenched her eyes shut, pressing against her forehead to relieve the pain of the unrelenting, blinding light. "Ugh what time is it?"
Her back hurt. She opened her eyes, still fighting against the sight-hindering sun in order to study her surroundings.
She was laying on the ground, her wings trapped underneath her torso. She rolled over, and stood up, all the while cynically laughing at her own stupidity.
"Haha, must've fallen off," she said to herself.
Rainbow Dash haphazardly dusted herself off, and began making her way to Rarity's Boutique.
" Here goes."
It's was morning. Well, a few hours past morning. Rarity had stayed up all night, scrambling to finish Rainbow Dash's dress. She couldn't help but wonder what Rainbow would use such a frilly, pink dress for, or why she needed it so soon. It wasn't often she'd receive rush orders, but then again it wasn't often Rainbow Dash of all ponies ordered anything from

I used to be alone
I used to feel so misunderstood
That I ran away from myself
I still feel that way
but you make it better
and with you
I don't mean to be needy
But you are all that I feel I have
You put up with me like no one else
You know all about me
and you still love me
and you still respect me
as a person
as a human
as your own
It used to be that I would want
to time-travel and warn myself
But when I think
and smile now
I would return
and give me you.

joined my party to stay by my side
You're the white mage who
heals my wounds after every fight
To know that you love me

You keep my need bars filled
and my power points maxed out
I'll never fear a "Game Over"
when you're my phoenix down
You gave me all of the castle's stars
so that I could open every door
With every piece of heart I have
I'll fight since you're worth fighting for!

Iridescent flickers of color
Float carelessly throughout the air
Resurfacing the wanders of the unknown
While exposing the passions within
The flames of the heathen blaze
Burst forth in sentimental dance
Exploding the tendencies of lacking thus
The infliction no longer dispersed
How I long of that fire
That flare of confession
Which leads and forgives and disappears
While leaving behind charred souls
My heart is made of coal
No longer of the nightly failings
But rather of the sky light sparks
That disappears behind rusted remarks
The spirits of the flourish
Tend to all my worthless cares
They bring up to the feelings of thus
The life circle...

It was a beautiful sunny day in Ponyville, an absolutely perfect day. An overall great day to be doing things in the great outdoors. Breezy, warm, the birds singing, flowers alive with life, it was wonderful.
To be outside, this was especially the case for two of Ponyville's residents. Two pegasi, out in the middle of a field near a willow tree, on a red and white checkered blanket, having a picnic. All kinds of food was strewn about for their little lunch, along with a thermos of fruit punch.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash were together on a little date, just sitting out having a picnic together. On the grass nearby, their pets, Angel and Tank, were just happily grazing along and doing their thing. So while it was also a little playdate for their pets, it was a very special date for them too.
Having gone to fetch something from a secondary picnic basket, Rainbow Dash produced a big white box from it, to which Fluttershy curiously watched to see what it was. Only to be told to turn around
Goodbye...Goodbye...2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To you Cruel world, friends and all,
I say goodbye, as now I fall.
You've shown me pain, sadness and fear.
It cut me deep, bled out my cheer.
But still I laughed, as though to hide,
The gaping hole, my heart reside.
I wore a mask of borrowed cheer
to hide behind, to cover my fear
For I thought, I hoped, a prayer
that once I'll be, a happy mare.
But so it is not and never shall be.
The impossible wish, crushed within me
Ground to dust, from hooves to head.
It pours on out through tears I shed.
I can't go on, this pain I hide,
I've given up, can't keep inside.
So now I fall, and now I die
For though I laugh, Inside I cry...

Watching, my eyes saw the swaying limbs
thin and starved by winter winds...
Dancing, like moving cracks on the window,
Through which I did stare.
Imagine, the image so morbid above as I gazed.
unnerving to the anchoring blood,
drying up within the veins of my limbs,
much like the branches that sliced the air...
The roots dug deep into my back,
and the anchored blood began to freeze...
My vessels, destroyed by glaciers,
of icy blood, that once flowed.
The travesty, of the bullet plunged into my heart,
whose beat slows, and withers and fades.
Too and so soon, the loss of my life...
Now I play the game of patience...

She couldn't tell if he was being serious, or if he was simply messing around with her, as he often did. His eyes had a desperate glint, his lips were pulled into a nervous lineóbut then, he'd always been good at acting in various ways to get what he wanted, though the last thing she'd expected him to feign was insomnia.
"Come on, Francis," she said, giving him a doubtful look. She folded her arms across her chest and studied his anxious expression, trying to gauge its genuineness. "You're not really having trouble falling asleep, are you? Don't you usually sleep like a log?"
"J'ai eu un cauchemar," he murmured. His gaze dropped to the floor, and he shifted his weight from one foot to the other. "I can't sleep now."

America peeked from behind the potted plant in the corner of the room at England, who he decided would be his victim to scare this year. England was bickering with France, as per usual. America smirked to himself. He would be the perfect scare victim. He lowered his Jason mask and slowly creeped out from behind the plant and snuck up behind England.
In the process of arguing with England, France looked over the latter's shoulder and saw.... was that actually Jason!?

England rolled his eyes. "You can't fool me with that, you bloody frog."

Our Numb Tears
Something deep within me / Is longing for relief
A haunting aura around me / Reminding me of the grief
Scratching at the core of my soul / Hope is swallowed by a black hole
Locked in the center of my heart / All that is left is the traumatized part
Laugh, smile, blink, and focus. You just need to act as normal as possible.
You cannot let this pain get the best of you. Don't do anything irresponsible.
The damage you do to yourself also effects everyone else, so don't let it become irreversible.
You're being too hard on yourself, no one is perfect in life, you're only human, you're not invincible!
Shock waves of guilt enter my system / While a deathly peace is in the distance
And aftershocks of regret strike me down / I can't show that I'm hurt when they're around
Tremors of anxiety / Infest my entire body
