Nothing that could possibly make up for anything you did. You cautiously glance over at him. The brown silk of his Hood is stained with red blotches of his own blood. You wonder what happned. You wonder how he managed to die after ascending to god tier. The thought of him dying twice makes your heart ache.It doesnt matter now3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The last thing you remember of him from your life is the shocked expression after you killed 2 of your best friends and blinded a third one. You can't say you're sorry for blinding Sollux. Because you are not. But you wouldn't mention it. It doesn't matter anyway.
You glance at his face. You can't tell what he is thinking nor what kind of expression that is. You hate seeing these white eyes. He used to be so expressive. His eyes. They could betray each and everyone of his emotions even if he was trying to actually hide them. Y

Dave Strider was definitely not friendly. It was an obvious fact that just about all of his classmates understood about immediately. Despite having transferred to his school three weeks into junior year, he quickly settled into a standard routine of going through his monotonous day with little more than a few seconds worth of speech. But that all changed when he happened to bump into somebody, quite literally in fact, on his second week there.
An alarm rang, the digitally blinking face reading 5:15. A hand wormed its way out of the nest of blankets it’d been in, smacking blindly at the clock until it fell off of the nightstand.
“Fuck....” mumbled a bleary voice. The teenager sat up in his bed, rubbing at his eyes and leaning down, cracking open one ruby eye to search for the blaring electronic clock. His thin fingers brushed its wire, and he grabbed it quickly, yanking it up by the cord. He mashe
That Taste On My Lips - AUstuck, EriKarIt wasn't the smell of the room that he disliked, or the humid air or the wet slick floors that just felt sort of slimy under his bare free as he walked along. When he leapt into the pool it wasn't the warmth of the water or the chemicals that sometimes burned his eyes if he didn't wear his goggles.That Taste On My Lips - AUstuck, EriKar3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was the taste. You weren't supposed to drink the pool water, naturally, but sometimes it happened and you just couldn't help that. But it stayed on your lips, a salty residue that simply soaked into your skin, and he found himself spending a lot more time in the shower rooms sometimes than most probably needed to.
Eridan Ampora was a name synonymous with the swim team. He was the son of a man who had trained for Olympic swimming and now coached the high school swimming team. Swimming was his life, and he was determined to impress his own dream on Eridan, who, while good at swimming, preferred to read fantasy stories and write poetry (though he would never admit to either).

Dave exited the noisy cafeteria, sighing in relief as he beat most of the noisy masses to the quiet hallways. Wait, what was that? He turned, looking up and down the hallway. That sounded like someone just got punched...
He snuck down the darker half of the hall, peering around the corner to see a group of taller boys surrounding someone else. He couldn’t make out the other person, but he knew it wasn’t a pretty sight. Fuck, what’d the nerd do to deserve that, huh assholes? Dave thought angrily, stepping around the corner and cracking his knuckles loudly. “Did your mommas never teach you not to pick on someone weaker than you? Oh, wait, I bet they dumped your sorry asses and went into prostitution. When I’ve finished with you, you’re gonna wish that you had, too,” he growled, glaring between the other three boys menacingly.
The largest one laughed. “Yeah, because

to figure out the worst part. cause, sure, there’s
so many bad parts, there’s so many moments
when dragging air through your mouth feels
like letting in all the water. your body becomes
your own battlefield, your mind—the most
ruthless enemy. it does not cut corners.
it will not spare you. it will leave
no summer-tinted memory untouched.
every exit sign looks like a suggestion.
if you ask someone if they are happy they will say yes
but they will not look you in the eyes.
you will never learn how to feel permanent.
you will drink grape juice and try to remember how it felt
to be holy. you will not think of yourself as wholly,
you are not complete. something vital is missing.
some dark monster has been feasting on you
when you lay down for sleep.
these are bad moments. these are scars that mar your skin
like tattoos that have too much meaning, like a map

He huddled in the blanket and yawned; he was beyond bored by now, and wanted nothing more than to turn on a slasher flick and watch some dumbass humans get slaughtered like animals. He smirked at the thought, then looked over at Karkat. He was smiling a little and watching intently. Sollux had no idea whatsoever how the hell he was enjoying staring at people make out. "Hey, Karkle'th," He asked curiously, "Why do you like these 'thupid chick flick'th anyway?"Solkat-movie snuggles3 years ago in Romance More Like This

“Mr. Moore sent me to find you. What happened? I passed Karkat on the way down here--he looked kinda upset... and where are your shades?”
“John...” Dave said quietly, “I really screwed up....”
John looked down at the blonde solemnly. “What did you do, Dave.”
Karkat pressed his back against the wall, hugging his knees to his chest. There was only one flickering bulb in his supply closet, and it looked ready to burn out. His thoughts wandered to those familiar scarlet eyes, and his rapid breath caught in his throat. He swallowed, closing his own eyes and pushing his face to his knees. “I’m so fucking stupid.... why did I....” he muttered quietly, trailing off as the bulb finally died out. He lifted his head and looked around anxiously

Silent BoyThere once was a child,Silent Boy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who never spoke a word.
He never changed his face,
Never cried when he got hurt.
Those dearest to him stood away,
They didn't know what to do.
And since they treated him in silence,
Silence became the only thing he knew.
As the years passed and he grew
He still remained the same,
Never speaking to anyone
And for that, no one ever came.
He was always picked on,
Someone always had something to say;
Either 'you are dead inside',
Or 'your life is wasted away'.
Through all the insults, the words,
The bruises, and the pain,
He tolerated it all, turned away,
He remained silent, he never changed.
His life kept getting worse.
He was no longer shown love,
He was just another silent boy
Who only deserved another shove.
No one ever showed sympathy.
No one saw that he was torn.
No one ever saw him as a person.
To them, he wasn't even born.
But he did learn how to feel,
The dormant feelings finally awoke.
The agony he felt towards their words,
The pain from the hits and words

At the final moment of the sunset, when that great, red disk falls beneath the ocean for its nightly slumber, when the last sliver vanishes, it becomes possible to cross the line between sky and sea, into this other frame of space and time.
This other plane of being is divided into four parts, called Points, as in the four compass points. The one to the south lies beneath the surface of the Earth. In the north, there is the Point of the heavens and all celestial bodies that lie for beyond the star system that we are nestled within. To the east there is the Point known as the Point of the sun, the time cycles of day and Earthly sky patterns.

There were once fireflies in her smile,
alight between the gaps in her teeth.
love letters carved into wrists
she never sent.
She is Porphyria, & you are her lover.

You don't remember how this happened, and at the moment you can't bring yourself to care. All you know is that your lungs are clenching in need of oxygen, that your arms and legs are useless in aiding you to the surface of the roiling water you're now submerged in. You don't even know which way is up.
You're drowning, and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it.
The river, lake, whirlpool, whatever it is, has got you caged and bound at the same time; the invisible currents in the dark water are preventing your limbs from moving the way you want them to, and bubbles are starting to force their way out of your nostrils and your mouth. You reach for those small pockets of air, desperately, but when your hand finally clenches around one it disperses into a million tiny bubbles, and they all skitter away from you faster than the rate you're being pulled down.
You grit your teeth in despair, the water around your eyes turning

cA: Hey Sol
cA: Wwhats up?
Sollux's heart skipped a beat as soon as Eridan began trolling him. As much as he hated to admit it, he had a fondness for the highblood.
It was more than a fondness but he had never admitted the truth out loud and the truth was: Sollux Captor was truly madly deeply flushed for Eridan Ampora.
Never once had Eridan asked him to fill a quadrent and the mustard blood didn't know whether to be relieved or upset about this. Considering he has asked just about every other troll to do so he was completly crushed. Eridan considered them close enough to be morials but seeing as Sollux already had one, this wasn't official.
The Gemini knew he had to hide his feelings somehow and the easiest way to do this was to pretend he hated the troll. He had to pretend too often for his liking and it crushed him everytime he did so. Oh how he hated to pretend but did he have a choice? He certainly didn't think so.

Karkat stared up at Dave, eyes wide. The blonde had him pinned against the wall, an arm casually thrown up just above the brunette’s head. He looked down at the shorter boy, impassive and expressionless. “Karkitty,” Dave said, obviously waiting for an answer.
Karkat blinked, panic flaring in his brown eyes. “I... I just--”
“No, it didn’t bother me. I actually thought it was kind of cute. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have classes to attend.” Dave clenched his jaw and backed off, walking stiffly to his next class.
The brown-haired boy watched the blonde walk away. His shoulder tingled where Dave’s fingers had grasped it, and he reached up slowly to brush the feeling away.
Still somewhat shell-shocked, Karkat turned and walked the opposite direction, off to his own class.
Dave sat down in his seat well before the bell rang. A blonde girl was seated next to

Commander Shepard wasn't present on the deck. Amidst the beeps of technicians typing at their stations, Kelly had the wry idea that he was down in Engineering spending time with a certain Quarian.
I'm glad they got together, they're both such wonderful people, She thought to herself glancing over at his Console. They're so cute.
Her thoughts at that moment turned to the ships newest... "Crew Member", and what was to be done in regards to it.
I mean... I trust Shepard, he knows exactly what he's doing... but a Geth? Activating a Geth on the ship?
Kelly had examined the psychology of all the Crew carefully. Jack, Grunt and Zaeed had made her uneasy with their presence, but she could understand them a to a certain degree.
