(Modern AU Jarida): Truth or Dare
Summary: After a game of truth or dare, Merida does the impossible. She is now forced to go on a date with the person she hates most, discovering newfound feelings along the way that may forever change their fate.
Truth or Dare—that’s how it all started.
Merida was faced with a ultimatum between both—and knowing it was at the hands of the one and only Jack Overland—made it all that more terrifying. She stared at the bottle that was pointing at her, forcing her to choose her fate. Knowing Jack, he wasn’t going to make this easy on her. The smug look on his face told her that he already had something planned. Rapunzel, Hiccup, and most of their friends waited in anticipation.
“Have you decided yet, Slingshot?” he asked her, obviously amused towards her dilemma.
She gritted her teeth at him. “ Hauld yer horses!” she demanded.
“Oh come on, we al

A little redhead pulled back the string of her brand new bow.
She notched the wooden arrow, shooting straight and true,
Directly into the thicket, leaving the bushes askew.
There she wandered; searching for her prize,
Unaware she had caught the attention of a certain winter sprite.
Jack flew down to watch her, his hand on the staff he grasped,
And recoiled with surprise when she looked in his eyes and gasped.
"Jack Frost." She whispered, baby blue eyes filled with awe,
And grabbing her lost arrow, from the woods she did withdraw.
Merida ran back to her parents, ginger mane flying in the wind,
Practically jumping with excitement, she slowed to a stop and grinned.
"I saw him!" She exclaimed, "I did, I really did!"
"Who did you see?" Elinor asked, her tone lighthearted.
"Jack Frost!" The little girl answered, her voice overjoyed.
Her mother laughed as her father frowned, very much annoyed.
"Those are old wives' tales." Fergus

Summary: The gang decides to go to a ski resort for a weekend, and with Jack and Merida there, things could never go as planned.
Merida struggled to step through the snow with her ski equipment on, complaining the whole time of how restricted she felt while wearing them. Everyone was already set off in pairs, waiting patiently for their lift to arrive. Obviously it had to be couples amongst their group of friends, only leaving her with one other person who wasn’t taken. She turned to the person in question, his grin indicating the fun he was about to have. This trip was proving to be a pain; it was bad enough that she didn’t even know how to ski; or ice skate; or even snowboard—everything about this weekend was against her element. Not for Jack though, he was a born natural for this stuff, and it annoyed her to no end.
They took a step forward after Hiccup and Astrid got on their lift, now waiting for Eep and Guy t
Alice and Mad Hatter: Mad LoveThe White Queen hastily reached into her pocket and pulled out a bottle from it. It was a small bottle, rather skinny, containing a light, purple liquid. She handed it to Alice, giving her a sad smile.Alice and Mad Hatter: Mad Love5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Take it. You deserve it. You've EARNED it. You've saved us all."
Alice stared longingly at the bottle, knowing it would grant her the one wish that she desired the most if she was to drink the purple liquid bubbling inside of it. She took the bottle, held it up closely to her beautiful face, blinking at the sight. "If..." she said quietly. "If I drink this, will... Will it take me home...?" The White Queen nodded slowly. "If that is what you wish," she said, rather uncomfortably.
Alice stared at it some more, then, sighing, slowly twisted off the black lid that was keeping the liquid from spilling out, and tossed it aside. She heard gasps of surprise, shock, and even disappointment.
She slowly turned around, only to see each and every one of her friends staring longingly at her. "Please

Ch1 The Boy from Berk
It was a sunny day in the Highlands of Scotland with a cool breeze coming off the ocean which was calm that day. Above it the blue sky was dotted with only a few clouds when suddenly a black streak shot by, the black streak turned out to be a dragon. The dragon was jet black in color, obviously a Night Fury, with greenish-yellow eyes. What was different from most dragons was he had a mechanical fin on his tail that seemed to be attached to a saddle he was wearing on his back and there was a boy sitting on the saddle. The boy had dark auburn hair with green eyes and was wearing dark green pants, a green tunic that went to his mid-thigh, a brown belt where there looked to be a small knife, and a riding vest. The thing that stood out on him was that while he had a typical Viking-style boot on his right foot his left was a spring-loaded prosthetic leg that fit into the stirrup on the dragon's saddle. His name was Hiccup, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III to be precise, an

I walk further and further in to the woods, swerving under branches and jumping across small ditches. My eyes darting, in search of the place it all began.
After about thirteen minutes I reached the scene of the crime.
I bend over to pick up and study the remnants of the discarded bola...
"Dragons are meant to go for the kill So, why didn't you?" I mutter to myself.
I drop the bola and begin to press on in the direction it flew off. I drop into a rocky crevice and follow it to an isolated cove, complete with a pristine spring pool. I scan the high stone walls... then notice a single black scale on the ground. I crouch and pick it up, studying it.
"Well this was stupid." I grumble to myself.
Suddenly, the Night Fury blasts past him. Making me recoil, watching the massive beast struggle to climb the walls. It flaps violently, and then peels away to a rough landing. The dragon appears to be trapped.
I grin, excited to see it again, and slowly begin to slip closer. I w

Czuję się trochę jak na huśtawce.
Jakbym raz był jedną osobą, a za chwilę stawał się drugą.
Wcześniej kierował mną rozum, który odrzuciłem, mówiąc Nivowi wszystko, co leżało mi na wątrobie. No, prawie wszystko.
Gdy go straciłem, moje ciało przejęło serce.
Ale tylko przez chwilę, bo w końcu, co tu dużo mówić, zacząłem myśleć kutasem.
Dzieli mnie to na pół.

Moje serce jest trochę liryczne, w przeciwieństwie do zupełnie nie poetyckiego penisa. I nie ważne, jak głupio to brzmi.

Archery Lesson "Jack, you need to focus." I huffed as Jack shot an arrow and missed his target - again.Archery Lesson1 year ago in Romance More Like This
"I'm trying!" Jack cried in exasperation as he angrily knocked another arrow. His frustration was botching his aim and I knew he would miss before he even began to shoot.
"Wait." I said as I walked over to where he stood. "Take a deep breath and aim like this." I stood behind him and corrected his positioning gently. "Now, imagine all your anger is seeping into the arrow." I instructed him. "Let go." I whispered as he released the arrow. The arrow whizzed through the air and thumped hard against the center of the target. At the sight of the bull's eye my lips turned up in a smile and I grinned. "I knew you could do it."
"I should have listened to you the first time, right?" Jack murmured softly.
"Yes, you should have." I quipped quietly as I stepped backwards a

Imagine this setting: We skim above a dark, wild ocean. Then we turn towards a lone island, its name, Berk. It is a gigantic shard of rock jutting straight out of the water. Our sight gazes over rolling hills to reveal a small village nestled on an outcropping of sea mounts.
This is Berk. Its twelve days North of hopeless and a few Degrees South of freezing to death. It's located solidly on the meridian of misery.
My village. In a word, sturdy. And it's been here for seven generations, but every single building is new.

Ice Cream I could only breathe out of one side of my face and it hurt to swallow. I felt terrible and I looked even worse than I felt. Not even bothering to change out of my pyjamas, I slumped out of bed and downstairs. Luckily it was Saturday and my loud family had not risen from their slumbers. I opened the cabinet that held the cups and reached inside. I drew out a glass and filled it with water from the fridge in a sort of thirst driven haze. I raised the cool glass to my lips and relished the feeling of cool water trickling down and soothing my aching throat. There was a small ringing sound coming from my phone, alerting me of a new text message. Glass in hand, I drifted over to the phone and checked my messages.

Just take a bite,
The apple of your eye looks sweet tonight.
Sink your teeth in,
And never look back,
Watch as your desire fades to black.
Swallow your sin,
And hide your face,
My life depends on your fall from grace.
Taste the sting,
On your poisoned lips,
As the world finally slips from your grip.
Behind sweet perfection,
Humanity suffers from your guilty infection.

Look at me
I will never be their perfect queen
Or their little daughter
Could it be
I was never meant for this
Now I see
If I became who I wanted to become
I would break my mother’s heart
Who is that lass I see?
She is so unclear to me
Why can’t my reflection just be the real me
Who is that perfect bride?
It’s not me and I’ll never try
But, when will my reflection show my true self inside?
I’ll be brave enough to be myself
And make her expectations
But, how can I?
There’s no way for me to be myself
Will a willow of the wisp help me?
They want a little lamb
No one knows the real me
Is there a fiery girl
I’m forced to hide
Must I be an obedient queen?
Could I ever change my fate?
When’s the day my spirit will rise and I‘ll be me?
When will my reflection show my true self inside?
Look at me
I will never be their perfect queen
Or their little daughter

Rapunzel's First SnowEugene woke up chilled. He looked around trying to find the source of the cold. He noticed Rapunzel wasn't sleeping. He sat there, thinking for a moment. " The window." He concluded out loud. He stood up stretched for only half a second, and started to walk quickly. He missed Rapunzel. He slowed down a bit, he studied this new emotion which he had not felt since he was a mere lad. He shook it off, better to think of that later, He thought. He rounded the corner of their very large bedroom in the castle. He sighed in relief, that feeling, well he hasn't felt like that in a while either, Rapunzel was making him a young child again.

Slowly she puts her foot on the cold floor. Her toes are tingly as she places her other foot right next to it. It's dark in the tower, and Mommy is asleep. Leaving the warm blankets alone, Rapunzel climbs out of her bed and sneaks out of her bedroom. She notices all the spots of light on the floor, when she walks down the stairs to the main-towerroom. First she has to get past Mommy's bedroom. Very carefully she tiptoes past the room with the open door. Her seven-foot long hair slides along after her. The starlight becomes brighter when she walks closer to the big window-or is it starlight? As soon as she steps into the beams that fall on the cold tower-floor, her hair starts to shimmer. She climbs up two steps and sits down at the window pane. And there it is the beautiful sight of thousands of lights on her sixth birthday. Rapunzel places her chin on her clasped hands and stares into the night sky, her eyes softly glistening. She hums a melody she made up herself, when she was

There were some days when being a lady had its benefits. But not now. Not today. Today, dinner had been rudely interrupted by her parents’ announcement that she was to be wed soon. Yes, she loved her parents--especially her father, as the two were alike all the way down to their looks, red hair and blue eyes and all. But she and her mother were complete opposites, always butting heads over everything.
