Hellsing: Dreams Part 1Pain. That was all Alucard could feel as he lay there on the table, his crimson eyes glazed and dull. In his body were a multitude of blades, but the one that stuck out was the long one that had impaled his heart. He could feel himself slowly dieing, actually feel his own blood seeping out of his body.Hellsing: Dreams Part 18 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"This is your defeat, Count," A voice whispered, and the vampire strained to look up and focus at the face. Yet, he could not get a clear view, no matter how hard he tried. "This is no nightmare."
He tried to snarl back, tried to defend himself, but only blood seeped out of the corners of his mouth. Footsteps came toward him and stopped in front of him. Again, he tried to focus and came up empty handed. But as he listened, the voice suddenly started going from masculine...to feminine.
"Your dominion are no more. Your power is no more," It said before it became horrifyingly familiar. "..The Police Girl is dead."

"NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS."
Harley glared at the woman in front of her, defiance blazing in her bright blue eyes which was met with the stony look in the darker ones in front of her. She crossed her arms and sulked. "Can I just say what I got to say?" She snapped, a little upset.
"You already did," Integra snapped back. "And the answer is NO." A few minutes ago, Harley had come running in, looking ecstatic though she had a large bump on her head. This was what Integra blamed for the idea that the teenager presented her with. There couldn't be another explanation for it. The blonde couldn't stand seeing Harley distraught, but there didn't seem to be any way around out.

There was a time when dragons ruled the earth. But that time is past.
I often asked myself how this came to be. How we, the rulers of the sky, the magic-shapers and fire-breathers, could have descended so low in what seems like such little time. I wasn't alive for much of the dragons' rule. It ended when I was only five cycles old. And yet I still missed it, I missed it with every inch of me that hated the humans, and loved magic.
Well, I supposed there was nothing for it.
Our land-- if we truly had the right to call it our land any longer-- was a beautiful place. I marvelled at its beauty everywhere I went; at the black mountains frosted with glittering snow, at the shivering reflections of sunlight on the lakes. Every journey held a new discovery, and a new beauty that could take my breath away. The life of a nomad was suited to me, that I could find beauty in the simplest of things, and endure some discomfort for it. My brother, however

Okay, so this happened to me almost a week ago or so, give or take. I was on the bus on my way to school, playing my Soul Silver on my DS, when the bus lurched a little at a stop. This wasn't unusual, a lot of the city buses were in disrepair and their engines stalling was common. I only sighed in annoyance at this-until something slid from the back of the bus after its sudden stop, the object coming to a halt by my seat.
It appeared to be an abandoned Pokewalker, to my surprise. I bent down and picked it up to have a closer look, distracting myself with it while the bus driver tried valiantly to restart the engines, all other passengers around me groaning impatiently. Upon closer inspection though, I frowned that the little Pokewalker was fairly scuffed and dirty, but worst yet was the screen on the thing.
The clear plastic covering had been scratched badly, looking as if someone had done it on purpose with keys or something to the point that it would be otherwise near impossible to t

Whispering soothing words to her.
Our young artist looks up to the sky
As he translates it to the paper.
The stars swirl and dance for him
And the buildings sway with them.
The twinkling of the stars descend
Precious words to him.
The wind blows strong upon the hill,
Dancing with the trees.
The artist records all that he hears
Along with what he sees.
He looks at it, his masterpiece,
Keeps it against his will
The stars are confident in him
And the night will not be still.
At the time his art is seen as trash,
But the night can see beyond.
One day his paintings will be known.
Of him, art will be fond.

Once again all alone
I suppose I must deserve it
I'm clingy and annoying
Obnoxious and dense
Rash and silly
Lazy and obsessive
Sometimes I hate myself
I want to draw people in
But only push them away
I cry so much lately
Because everything hurts
Maybe I'm not meant to be happy
I force my smile
I fake my laugh
Does anyone notice?
Does anyone care?
It's not "Like Me" to be so
Depressed? Upset? Angry?
What is 'like me'?
Someone tell me
Because I don't know myself anymore
Once again, as before

Saying your life sucks,
Remembering all the bad things in one day,
how many horrible feelings you had in one day,
and wondered how it was possible, in one day.
Looking at everyone around you,
knowing everyone despises you,
talks about you.
You try to be confident,
you try to ignore the sh**,
but in the end you know you cant
These people tear you apart,
not knowing you have feelings,
they ignore you
ruin your life,
and they dont even know it.

My first piece for AlwaysMotivated, hope it's alright, just a small idea I had.
"Come on, mate, I'm gonna die of thirst by the time you get here."
"I'm coming, I'm coming," I replied, stepping into the warm, dry tavern with relief.
It was a rainy, dreary Thursday afternoon, and I had been persuaded, with very little effort, to tag along to the pub to forget my troubles for the day. My best mate, Nate, and his girlfriend Sasha, were always eager to down the beers; even more so with the day off tomorrow. It was always a laugh, after a few drinks I would be feeling happy no matter what had gone on that day, and just letting go of responsibility and stress was always a welcome thing.
There was bunting draped all around the bar; the royal wedding was the very next day, and most seemed to be getting into the spirit of things. I didn't really mind all the hype, as long as no-one tried to drag me into it. So I was content for the momen

So now, Walter and Integra were waiting outside for her while Alucard went back down to the basement to retrieve his depressed, less-than-willing-to-move fledgling.

Dragon thieves were a notorious bunch. They rarely hunted for themselves and instead stole the kills of other dragons. Any territory they fancied they would take, driving out anyone that was too weak to resist. They were especially fond of stealing any human-things that dragons were carrying around-- admittedly, all dragons had a weakness for glittery metals and stones, but in thieves this characteristic was especially prominent. It was said that successful thieves would create hordes of stolen knickknacks, guarding them with their lives.
These thieves looked no different. They were obviously southern dragons, as shown by their dark scales and leathery wings, and several of them had sparkling bits of metal fastened to their bodies. The one with the most jewellery stepped forward, eye to eye with Relan. He was not a particularly tall dragon, more stocky than anything, with navy blue scales and yellow eyes that glimmered underneath a golden headdress.
Hellsing: Matchmaker 3It took a good ten minutes to calm Harley and Alucard down enough to separate them. Because after Harley hit the ground and screamed for help, she promptly latched herself to the vampire's leg, refusing to let go and threatening to bite him.

But after Integra shot Alucard's hat off, both of them quieted down, though they kept shooting the other very dirty looks.Hellsing: Matchmaker 39 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

I tried to go back to sleep, but my body reacted on it's own, muscles stretching and limbs gliding onto the floorboards. I walked, from my home to the park. Six streets I passed, and no one seemed to notice me. Not even when I paused in front of a cafe' to take a look inside. No one looked at me. Almost like I was invisible.
The whispers and coos nipped at my earlobe, turning me to face the far side where the swings set all by their lonesome until tomorrow. I took one timid step.
And then another.

And for Seras Victoria, this was all too true.
Why do these things happen to me? She asked herself, sighing miserably and laying her head on the kitchen counter. It hadn't even been a week since the washing machine incident, and Alucard was already up to his tricks again.
Apparently, getting hit repeatedly on the head with a silver ashtray by a furious Integra wasn't enough to teach him a lesson.
Apparently, being forced to go with Walter as he went washing machine shopping wasn't enough punishment.
Apparently, Alucard was either extremely curious or extremely stupid.
