Not a living thing was outside,
Except the guards, and Whiterun's local bum
Jarl Balgruuf was in bed, a bed fit for the Lord,
In hopes that St. Nick would bring him a Sword;
In the small house known as Breezehome, Lydia did slumber,
Wishing that for Christmas she would get a Sword of Thunder;
And Archer set out some milk and a sweet roll,
Preparing for the arrival of Santa, so he wouldn't get coal;
He had no idea what this man looked like,
But he hoped that he'd visit, possibly this night
He yawned tiredly, and then scratched his head,
Before going upstairs to sleep in his bed.
In the morning, he hoped, he would have some nice presents…
Well, after all, he'd been kind to the peasants,
When suddenly, in the living room, Archer did hear,
A large man was present… when did he appear?
With a focus, then a cast, Archer was see-through,
So he could sneak behind a chair, and see what the man would do.
He wore a large red

Dr. Robert Jamieson shivered as he stepped out into the cold, Norwegian air, the metal on his glasses causing his face to get even colder than it was already. It was the fifth day of research digging for a special mineral called Manrel that was rumored to strengthen man's physical and mental power, and if used in a certain way, in rare cases, could give unnatural powers. At first it had all been silly fairytales, something that you would tell your children before bed. Old Norse tales had told of it being made by the gods to protect themselves and make themselves more powerful. But a scientist in Norway had claimed to have found the fabled mineral, and had made an average man five times stronger and his brain able to retain ten times as much information as the average brain.
It had seemed silly to Dr. Jamieson, at first. But when the 28 year old had gone to a lecture by the scientist and had seen his experiment, his thoughts began to change. Other scientists had come close, on

Before he could start explaining though, a red blast of fire flew towards them. Loki pushed Lucy out of the way, both of them tumbling down the stairs. Looking up, he saw Annar looking at him with intense hatred. The man was much taller than him, even taller than Thor, and looked like he had spent a lot of time strengthening his body. And he apparently had perfected the art of shooting fire from his hands over the past thousand years.
"You've gotten grayer over the years Annar," said Loki standing up and dusting himself off. Annar had indeed aged; his dark hair was starting to go more silver, though he was still in good health.
"And your mouth is as irritating as ever," retorted Annar. Even before Massnordore had tried to take over Asgard, Annar had never liked the younger prince, always pulling tricks and the way he could trick you into saying things that made you sound like an idiot. "Give me the child now."
Loki smirked. "What makes you think that I'm just going to hand he

The Boy Who Had None
In a small country, in a small town, there lived a boy known to all and avoided by most. Though blind and small, weak and alone, everyone feared his presence. For the boy had a gift, or a curse as they would call it, to see secrets best left unheard.
Instead of a face to remember a person the boy could see their hearts. Instead of seeing the Baker, plump and round, the boy saw his secret all too clearly.
“He cheats on his wife.” The boy said aloud when coming face to face with the Baker.
“He lies!” The man shouted, but all knew better. For everyone knew what this boy said was true. No one could deny that secrets he did see.
“She steals from her customers.” Is how he referred to the Seamstress.
“He likes men.” He greeted the Stable boy.
Everyone knew that the boy only spoke truths, no matter the crime, no matter the humiliation; no one could deny their secre

Yet you continue on in this delusion, not hearing a word that anyone said;
They're ripping at your flesh and tearing at your soul, yet there's silence to be found;
And though you have no memory, you seem to be spotting seams of blood upon the ground.
You don't remember all the faces of those lives you gladly took;
You don't remember all the names of the people you forsook;
The only memory that you have, is a haunting one at best;
It's a daunting memory of the lives that you possessed.
And in your bloodied, mangled hand, is the doll of that little girl;
Whose life you stole and claimed your own, and cast out of this world;
She was innocent, she was pure, yet your nature knows no bounds;
You are cruel and cold and heartless, and your killer instinct resounds.
You resonate with death, because the voices tell you what to do;
They won't leave your head, so the killer now is you;

Asgard. Home to powerful beings, beautiful maidens, valiant warriors, and yes, even traitors. Many years after the war with the Frost Giants, a warrior and so-called friend close to the Allfather, Odin, tried to rise up against the king with dark powers that had transformed him into an evil enemy. He was a formidable opponent, but the powerful Odin was able to cast him out, banishing him out of Asgard. Before he was cast out though, Massnordore tried to take his newborn daughter with him, in hopes of training her up as she grew. But her mother, realizing that the man she had married was gone, stole away with the child. Just as Massnordore was about to catch them, Lilia sent the baby with a trusted friend to be taken to Midgard, in hopes that the baby would be safe from him for the time being. Enraged by his wife's betrayal, he struck her down. Lilia died protecting her most precious treasure.

Four years later
Lucy sat in her dad's lab and finished the multiplication page that she was working on. She loved the days that her dad worked in the lab, because that meant she got to do school there. School was fun for her, because it was so easy. She was able to remember things very easily, which made it easy for her to learn a lot of stuff. It just stuck with her. Like, she knew all the 50 states, every president and vice president, the times tables up to 12, and other things, like that there was a man before Columbus who discovered America. At first, her dad had to be very careful to make sure that Lucy was really learning everything, but she proved that she had learned all of it by getting perfect scores on all her tests. Shutting her book, Lucy hopped down from the table and went over to where her dad was working. "I finished," she said handing him the book.

Lucy sat in her bedroom, flipping through her old, brown leather bound photo album with memories from her early days on Midgard with her blue blanket draped over her shoulders. ‘Six years,’ she thought. ‘It’s been six years since I lost Dad.’ She traced the edge of an older photo, one of her adoptive Midgardian Mom and Dad, who held a mini Lucy. They all looked so happy, even though she could see the worry in her Dad’s eyes and Mom was wearing a wig. This was right around the time before Elizabeth died, leaving Lucy and her dad to go it alone. Then her real father had ruined everything.
Well, not everything. Though Lucy wished that the terrible events in her past hadn’t happened, she now had a new family, and was the daughter of a king. Odin and Frigga loved her as if she was really their child, and her brothers Thor and Loki made her feel part of the family. Especially Loki. She grinned as sh

(In this story Lucy is 14, as spent almost 7 years on Asgard, and she is already deep into her training to be a warrior and is balancing the duties and lessons of being a princess, though today goes a bit differently than planned due to yet another one of Loki's tricks.)
Lucy hopped out of her bedroom, pulling on her boot. She was late again, and Sif was going to kill her if she was late to training. She hadn't meant to sleep late, but she and Loki had stayed up late into the night and early into the morning in the library the night before. Loki had found a book of spells that he hadn't read in the quite a long time, and Lucy was reading a book about famous Asgardian warriors after she had finished a history lesson, and hadn't realized how late it was until she had finished it.
Running down the huge hallway in the castle, Lucy dodged and even jumped over servants who either were very surprised or scolded her as she passed. Just as she was about to make it to the

And screams echo in my head
I claw against the tight restraints
But nothing gives way in this hell
My captor comes to visit in the night
His touch sends a chill down my spine
He can't be real but here he stands
It takes my breath away to see his eyes
They shine in the darkness
A cold sweat breaks out on my forehead
I strain against the ropes that hold me
I cry out for help just like every night
No one is here to save me
Only this monster can hear my cries
He approaches in an inhuman way
Licking his lips he touches my neck
His skin is colder than ice
My cries turn into whimpers and soft sobs
He smiles and I glimpse his sharp teeth
"Don't be afraid." he whispers in my ear
"It will only hurt for a little while."
I know this already and he sinks in his teeth
Burying them deep in my veins
He takes my blood until I loose consciousness
He can't be real

I spent two terrible days on the streets of Windhelm before I managed to get into my own house. It rained and sleeted for almost every hour of those two days, which I mostly spent sitting on top of a pair of barrels under an arch in an alleyway, trying desperately to stay dry and warm. When it let up a little, I would wander down to the docks with my line and hooks to catch fish, cooking them with bits of broken wood and rags that I fished out of trash bins. Those bins also provided me with a few bits of thin wire and pins that I could bend into makeshift lockpicks.
At night, I would crouch in front of my front door, working with the shabby picks in a vain effort to get the lock open. Every time I saw an approaching lantern, I would drop everything and scurry into a nearby alley to wait for it to pass. I must have broken nearly a dozen pieces of rusty metal trying to pick the lock before finally getting it to catch and turn on the second night. It

It seemed that the Allfather would be just fine. The poison was just a very powerful sedative that even the Allfather was weak to. Frigga stayed with her husband as he regained his strength. Thor had paced in and out of the room until he knew that he was alright. Everyone was solemn about Konur, whose body had been taken to be prepared for burial. Since everyone else was busy doing something else, Loki was left to try to get Lucy to sleep, but he spent most of the night comforting her through fits of sorrow.
"He was a great man, your uncle," he said, sitting in the edge of the bed, running a hand through her hair, as his mother did with him when he was younger. "A friend. He loved you very much."

Tears pouring down, she ran out of the throne room. She pushed pass the guards and sprinted down the hall. She wanted out, to get away, to go home. Seeing a door, Lucy ran for it, and though she heard someone calling after her, she burst through it and took off into the air.
Konur had chased after the girl, but he couldn't fly, so he just watched Lucy fly off and away from the castle. "Perfect. Just perfect," he said scratching his head.
"She can't go too far." He turned to see Loki. He had that way of sneaking up on you at the strangest times.

Loki smiled. "Is that a challenge Konur?"

Diamonds Droog, contrary to his reputation, is not as he seems.
People will often tell you he is the brains of the Midnight Crew. He is calm, collected, and in control. When given an order, he takes care of it in a logical and intelligent manner. Some find his monotonous visage threatening, while others find it to be a comfort compared to the constant scowling of the Crew's leader or oblivious follow-orders-ask-questions-later stare of their demolitions expert. He has an impeccable taste in fashion and, possibly, other finer things. He seems like the kind of man who would be passionate about his interests, and who you wouldn't mind sitting down with for a nice chat, all alone.
That is a very bad idea.

They had been exploring the hotel last night and found a ton of books that looked interesting. The ones that really caught Loki’s eye were a children’s book series called Harry Potter, and there were six books all sitting together on a shelf, each bigger than the last.
