Now that Alfred was fifteen, he'd been given his own study. For some reason Arthur thought this was a big step in the boy's progress, but Alfred was noticeably nonplussed about this. For one it was a relatively small room, about ten by ten. There was enough room for a desk in front of the window, a bookshelf to the left, and a table to the right. Above that table many diagrams had been drawn with ink on paper, detailing everything from runes to the very creation of arcane circlesthough Alfred couldn't do it yet, it was essential to know how in order to use them properly. That was the hope, anyway. 'A master of magic can one day create his own circles, pull his spells straight from the other side and shape them to do just as he likes.' That's what Arthur had said, though he'd avoided the topic when Alfred had become too interested.
What was too interested anyway!

Waiting that's all it had come down to these past couple of weeks. The three Axis Powered nations were working steadily on trying to take over the Allied Forces, but sadly nothing had changed. They hadn't eaten much, tempers were flared between Germany and Italy, most of it being Italy's fault, and Japan trying always to make the peace so they wouldn't kill each other, something needed to be done. Poking a stick into the fire, Ludwig looked over at Honda.
"We need to do something. Those swine think that because there are more of them than of us that they will dominate? Nein I will not let this happen, let's just see how we can handle ourselves." He spat in the fire, as it was already starting to die down.

It was a stormy night and Prussia sat on the couch flipping through TV channels trying to find something interesting to watch. "Why is there never anything interesting on TV on Sundays?" Gilbert said throwing down the remote and crossing his arms. He had just put little Ludwig to bed and just wanted to relax a little before he had to do the same but apparently that wasn't going to happen. Craning his neck he looked at the clock that read 12:23. "Fine, I guess I'll just go to bed " he said with a frown as he got up and walked upstairs to his room "I have to do stupid work tomorrow anyways."
He had just climbed into bed and closed his eyes when he heard a blood curdling scream come from Ludwig's bedroom. Quickly the silver haired nation jumped up and ran to his little brother's room. Never in his life had he heard Lud

America dropped Canada's wrist to run off on his own, as soon as they reached the middle of the room. Canada, who was very glad the running had stopped, stayed in place to catch his breath. Also very glad to get his arm back, he rubbed his wrist where America had been squeezing it.Playmates Part 7 End4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Meanwhile, America's bare feet pattered their way up to a table in the kitchen. Once beside the table, America began jumping up and down. With every little jump, his eager eyes would peak over the top of the kitchen table and search for England's cookies. His sharp, baby blues finally caught sight of the treats resting on a tray at the opposite end of the table.

Germania turned to face the familiar voice, annoyedbut also a little curious. He wasn't sure what the Roman Empire could have that belonged to him. Germania froze when he saw what it was. The strong blonde, who prided himself on his ability to keep his true thoughts and emotions hidden from his enemies, paled visibly at the sight before him (and he wasn't sure if it was from shock, anger, frustration, embarrassment, or a strange mix of all four). For there stood Rome, looking very angry and irritated as he held the "item" out to his European neighbor. The tanned Empire's brow was furrowed u

Ludwig couldn't get over it. It had only been a month since Prussia was dissolved and his brother had simply died, but Ludwig already knew it would never be okay.
His brother hadn't died immediately; it had taken a week for him to die. Gilbert had become horribly ill. Shivers, heat flashes, aches, fever... sometimes he coughed so hard there was blood. Ludwig felt responsible, and took care of him to the best of his abilities, but Gilbert seemed content just to have him stay with him through the night.
The whole time, they both knew he was dying, and Ludwig felt awful then, but it wasn't until he woke up lying in bed next to his brother's unmoving body that the full weight of depression finally sank in, leaving him ragged and hollow.
There was a funeral service. Not a very big one, but nearly everyone attended. Even Roderich, normally with bitter resent aimed at the former nation at the best of times, had been there, and though he looked composed, Ludwig thought he saw

Germany looked over at the children playing quietly. He had not wanted to raise his voice because they were so content, and anything with raised voices might set them into hysterics. Glaring at Prussia still, he extended a finger, and made a come hither motion. Prussia waltzed over to him, and stood by the table safely across the table.

Ivan hesitated outside the door for a long while. He fidgeted with the end of his scarf all the while, one hand pulling away to reach for the door handle only to pull it back. His breathing was shallow, chest aching with every inhale. His heart was thumping so loudly that it pounded in his ears. His hand moved towards the handle again, fingers closing around the cold metal. It squeaked a little as he turned it slowly, and the sound startled him so much that he froze. Letting go, the hinges on the door creaked as it opened about an inch. Everything was quiet for a few breaths before a feminine voice came from inside the room. "H-hello?"
"Mm ! I-it's me "

A/N: All explanations of the mythology will be in the description.
At the edge of the world, not the physical world, but the one that sits at the very fringes of the imagination, one that shows itself to a select few, one that teases the human brain with fantastic images and colors, is a forest. It's a special forest, the gateway to this other world, the Faerie world, that most can only dream of. There's only one way in: by invitation.
They say the call to enter the forest is a strange one. It's something that whispers directions in your ear to call you to the edge. There are lights that nudge you to the brink, tempting followers with beautiful lies and shimmers. But those whispers can never push you to take that last step. Only those that crave the other world can see it, join it, make the final step. It's a leap of faith: crossing over into the other world is to step into a void that one cannot see. For Alfred F.

It was by no means the first time Austria paid a visit to the lands bordering his own blood-relatives. In another time, it would have been conventional, perhaps uneventful. But no matter how many times he tried convincing himself, nothing had been routine. Not anymore. This particular trip however seemed different. Indeed he had barely even changed from his field uniform when word came of it.
"Do you think it's another band of barbarians?" he asked the driver as their battered jeep moved closer towards the increasingly crowded refugee camp, a peculiar lone bird flying overhead. It had since become a common sight to find such places along the frontiers that separated the Austro-Swiss Union from the surrounding wastelands. It was not so long ago when they were forced to close the borders as those fleeing Doomsday’s shadow threatened to plunge

Eleven year old Alfred was an inquisitive one. His parents had always known that about him, and when his innate skills had come to light they had been terrified. When he was seven he had conjured a little flame, which had in turn set fire to the house. No real damage had been done, but it had been enough. They dropped him off in front of a grand house, a letter clutched tightly in his hand, his clothing as filthy as the boy that wore them.
The man who owned the house was a peculiar one with a reputation for his own skill. Alfred knew nothing of it. But the man had taken him inside, read his letter and given such a look of sadness that Alfred had hugged the man's legs tightly and told him not to cry. His parents had left him, even little Al knew that, and he w

There were plastic cups all over the place, food on the floor and walls, and various pieces of small trash EVERYWHERE. Noticing you were already wearing day clothes, you figured it out. "Oh yeah...That's right." You facepalmed, remembering the giant party you had thrown the night before. You dad was gone at a world meeting for the night, so you invited all of your friends from school over to hang out.

Five hours later, everyone finally calmed down and you sent them all home. With nobody left in the house, you crashed on the couch, too exhausted to make it to your bedroom.

Toris sighed as he entered the hospital that day. He was tired from a 12 hour shift the previous day, but it couldn’t be helped! They were understaffed in the Psych Ward, as it seemed most new nurses ended up as patients instead… But not Toris! He was a strong-willed one. Undressing, Toris headed for the locker room showers. Thankfully they were separate from the patient showers! Afterwards he dried off quickly with a towel—being caught naked in the locker room was never good after all. He opened up his locker and went to grab his scrubs when he froze instead. Green eyes widened slightly, and his jaw fell open.
A few moments later the aptly nicknamed ‘Nurse Rue’ was racing down the hallways of the hospital, a curious clicking sound accompanying those steps. He reached his intended door soon enough, opening it and practically jumping inside. He closed the door behind him, panting slightly, his face a crimson red. F

Night time on a ship can be very gloomy, or simply cold, and damp, something to do with the wind against the ocean. Matthew had read some of the science behind it, several times in fact. He was a great reader after all, and was perfectly content some times to re-read things to be certain he had gathered in all the facts into his brain. Still knowing something and truly understanding it, are different things entirely.

Ah, to hell with titles. He had enough books to be a wizard, and Arthur was constantly reading. He kept the most important, most powerful books up on the top shelf where they were out of reach.

Further inland, light patches of frost littered the ground as evidence of a blessedly mild winter, but here in the settled area the cobblestone streets were only slushed with the after effects of a less than noticeable snow. Buildings and windows were dusted with white flakes, soft flurries fell lazily in the cool breezeless eve, and other than the silver moon only a few lamp burning street lights illuminated the way down the midnight path.
