Hero (A Short Story)
The sky was a cloudless black exposing the brilliant shine of each individual star like diamonds that had been tossed into the air and became stuck in the sea of night sky. On that night, the moon was round and full with light as it glowed peculiarly bright upon a small house nestled snugly in a neighborhood of other homes just like itself. Only this one was a bit different. Looking down the street of the neighborhood, you would see all the lights turned off inside the homes signaling that the occupants inside were sleeping comfortably in their beds on this clear, cool night. The only house lights that could be seen belonged to the house lit up by the full moon in the diamond sea night sky.
Inside the house and into the dully lit room was a girl. Her room was tidy enough with a desk, vanity, dresser, and stereo all comfortably fit into her small bedroom. The lamp by her bedside washed the room with its dull light as the girl sat curled up on the bed clutching a single picture to her ch

I've never been the prettiest person in school. My body isn't all that great and my skin is far from perfect. Instead of wearing pretty sparkly clothing, I wear anything and everything black. My hair is a deep midnight black. My sky blue eyes are rimmed thickly with black kohl eyeliner. Because of they way I dress, I stick out in my uptight school. I've never made any friends, and frankly I don't need any. Why take the chance of being stabbed in the back by someone you care about?
My parents barely talk to me since they were always busy with work. I may as well have lived alone. No one cared about me, so what was the point in living anymore? I was tired of having everyone, students and teachers, glare at me like I was a waste of space and their precious time.
But that was all before I met him.
He made everything I knew about the world
He made it all change.

This is not where I wanted to end up. Not at all. How in the hell did I even get here? Oh yeah that's right. I remember now. I was dragged here on a dare. She said it was going to be funny. That something good might come out of it. That in the end we'd be laughing. Well, guess what, Natalie? I'm not laughing right now and by the look on your face? Neither are you.
"So, anyways, enough about me. What do you do for a living?" the all too eager guy sitting across the table from me with oily hair dangling in his face asked me. What was this guy's name again? I glanced down at the sticker on his faded Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt. His name was Tim. I slid my gaze over to the large timer sitting on the podium up front where the girl who had arranged this was standing with a large fake smile plastered on her face. I still had another minute and a half with this guy. I inwardly shot myself in the face.
"I'm a female impersonator," I dully retorted.
Tim blinked a couple of

Five years later
A lot of things have changed since that night when I was raped. For one, I'm now seventeen and no longer living with my mother. She passed away last year from drug overdose. I had the option to go live with my grandparents, but they had never cared much for me as their grandchild since my mother had birthed me out of wedlock. My grandparents most certainly did not appreciate that. So now I am living on my own in a tiny apartment working two jobs while also attending school. That's ok though. Even when I had been living with my mother, I felt like I had been living alone.
Another thing about that night that I should mention, the white cat that had licked my nose shortly after the man had left? He had come back home with me where I fed and took care of him inside the safety and comfort of my room so Mother wouldn't know we had gained a new pet. Otherwise she may have killed him. I had given him the name Nakir after the Angels of Justice, Munkir and Nakir

You wiped away my tears
You opened my eyes to see
That there's nothing left to fear
You sang songs directly from your heart
Bringing peace, love, and joy to all
It's what saved me from falling apart
Because you catch me before I fall
You inspire me to never give up on my dream
You tell me to keep on believing
No matter how hard it may seem
And because of this
You're the reason why I keep on breathing

"Zak, let's stop here for a sec," Aaron piped up pointing out the window. I looked over real quick to see what he was referring to. My eyes immediately went back to the road.
"No. HELL no," I immediately replied.
Aaron laughed. "Awh, come on, man! It'll be fun."
I narrowed my eyes at him before concentrating back on the road. My hands gripped the steering wheel. The exit for the place was coming up soon.
"I have already been to one of those places. I'm not going to another one. Not after what you guys did to me that last time."
I was referring to the time we had gone to the Clown Hotel and I,

Before You Forget About Me
Chapter One: In Another Life
Hitsugaya was still young and reckless. Renji Abarai had to grab him back at the collar to restrain him. "Easy, lowlife."
Hitsugaya shot him a withering glare at the suggestion. He bit his comment about how utterly ironic that was back with effort. He tugged himself free of Renji. "Can't believe we're letting him get away."
"With that attitude of his."
Renji had felt conflicting emotions at the attitude their friend had displayed too. He didn't appreciate being abandoned, but he appreciated being shunned for caring about it even less so. "Guy's a dick, granted."
"Stupid Ichigo." Traces of defeat wove into his words. They had never seen Ichigo act like this before.
It was like he was hiding something.
Don't come with me, he'd said. And something about breathing space.
Hitsugaya's nose creased into his frown. "I'm going back."
Hitsugaya's eyes revealed he wasn't so sure. "To you know where."

This is this turtlecest, don't like? Don't read.
Donnie wrapped up his latest project at around eleven in the evening, his brain hardly working so he decided to call it a night before he hurt himself.
Arriving in his and Leo's shared bedroom, he realised it would be another night spent alone. He was used to it by now but he still didn't like sleeping alone.
Since their final face off with the Shredder, Leo had been hard and cold and often spent his nights out fighting purple dragons with Casey and Raph or on his own, which made Donnie worry even more.
He'd talked to Leo about this but he told Donnie simply not to do so, that he was fine and he knew what he was doing.
Even Raph and Mikey knew that Leo's funk was interfering with his and Donnie's personal life, so they decided they would step in, they were all annoyed at Leo's sudden change in personality and it annoyed Raph and Mikey even more that it was affecting Donnie so much.

Jack Frost had not expected this to happen. Sure, he had dropped by Berk to grant its first day of winter, prepared to not be heard, seen, or even thought about. But this, THIS. Landing in the middle of the town, he was just going to stroll, put some ice on a couple of streets, draw some intricate patterns on the windows, maybe even drop a huge pile of snow on one of the bigger looking vikings. Instead, the moment he landed the entire town had stood silent.
He thought that maybe something terrible had happened in Berk while he was gone, until someone had whispered one word,
then suddenly, wildfire! The same word shot up in cries of excitement and fear. Jack’s eyes had grown big, he was even knocked backwards thanks to the crowd that had closed in on him. He had half a mind to just run away, a huge part of him wanted to, until an old woman approached him.
The crowd gave her plenty of room, and there she had looked intently at Jack. Not a word. A sudden underst

A Mutual Meeting of Intakes
For my darling Gemi; from her headcanon that the Autobots pick up foreign habits such as kissing from humans.
I tilted an audial toward Arcee, keeping my optics on my console. "Yessss?"
"How much do you know about human customs?"
I snorted, my fingers pausing over the screen. "Little more than you do. In fact, judging from how often you interact with the children, you're more knowledgeable in that subject than I."
Silence. Curiosity gnawed at my processor, a fact that Arcee was well aware of and using to her full advantage. Finally after a few kliks I sighed and turned, gesturing at her to explain.
"Well, it was this odd... ritual," Arcee said thoughtfully. "I saw Jack and his femme friend pressing their mouthplates together and apparently enjoying it, but when I asked him about it he turned red and told me to be quiet." She looked up at me, utterly baffled.
"Disgusting," I rumbled, narrowing my optics. "Why wo

Splinter emerged from his quarters to check on his six-year-old sons. He had entrusted them to engage in quiet activities and look after each other while he meditated. He was pleased to see that they had complied.
Michelangelo and Donatello, his two youngest, sat at the table with papers, crayons, and pencils scattered all over. They engaged in their own conversation all the while.
Leonardo and Raphael sat in the living room; Leo watching cartoons (as always) and Raph looking through the pictures in a comic book he could not yet read.
“I can see you have all found ways to quietly entertain yourselves,” he praised. “Thank you for cooperating.”
“You're welcome, daddy,” Leo was the only one that spoke up.
Splinter looked over Raph's shoulder at what he was 'reading'. “Raphael, are you able to read any of that?” he asked.
Raph shook his head. “I can read some of the words, but not a lot of em. I'm mostly just looking at the picture

I watched her with bated breath as my words slowly sank in. I could see each and every emotion flicker across her face. First, she merely blinked at me before quietly chuckling almost nervously. Aerolynn sat up and raked a hand back through her dark silky hair. She glanced down at me; her face showed a mixture of fear and happiness.
To be honest this wasn't quite the response I had thought I was going to get. Sure, I expected her to be shocked, but then I figured that shock would turn into overwhelming joy. The more she stayed silent though, the more nervous I became. I started thinking that maybe telling her had been a bad idea. Even though I knew that telling her now may not be the best of times, I figured she needed to know where my feelings lie. I didn't want to keep her balancing on the thin line of how I felt about her. I didn't want her to have any more doubts. I wanted her to be confident in the way I felt about her so she could proudly
