Human Nature When you are young,
they will treat you with the softness of spring.
They will guide you through the winter winds and
over snowy hills, admiring the brilliance of your
midday innocence; pulling daisies from the earth
just to place them in your hair. And they will
whisper to each other of how beautiful you are.
When you grow older,
they will treat you with the indifferences of autumn.
They will urge you from the complacency of your own
fleeting fulfillments, and they will watch your
brilliance fade with the swiftness of the sky. You
will shed your fragile childhood with the colors of
the trees, and you will learn to face the winter winds
without their guiding arms. And they will whisper to
each other of how beautiful you are.
When you are grown,
they will treat you with the coldness of winter. They
will leave you bare and naked before the ravenous wolves,
expecting you to fend for your own forgotten brilliance,
asking why you've kept those wilting daisies in your hair.
Something I Can Never HaveItachi laid the sleeping Sasuke down on his bed before pulling the sheets up to Sasuke's chin. He would let Sasuke sleep until Naruto returned from his week-long absence. Sasuke had barely gotten any sleep since the blond Hokage left for work.Something I Can Never Have8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Glancing down at his brother's sleeping form, Itachi mentally cursed Naruto for stealing Sasuke from him. Despite the obvious, still-living crush Sasuke has for him, he still chooses Naruto. He's been replaced.
It didn't matter what Itachi did in order to win Sasuke's heart over. The most he ever got from his little brother were simple pleading, desperate-for-sex-sessions from him when they were younger. Even then, Sasuke wasn't even screaming his name. He had always, always screamed his name. That cursed blond.
Itachi even tried marking Sasuke has his property, and that didn't last very long. They had been removed within a month. But, the younger Uchiha kept the mark that Naruto gave him. (A Kyuubi-influenced mark, no less.) What was so damn spe
Forbidden you say? 15Pale pink doors slid aside before the massed girls of Ouran, the scent of roses and fresh coffee drifting from the brightly lit doorway, some of the red petals floating towards the excited crowd. As the afternoon had progressed, lessons at Ouran had ended, and the ladies of the establishment were huddled around waiting for their chance to relax. The shining dimmed until dark forms materialised in the spacious room beyond. Aranged about a mahogany and velvet setee was the Host Club, all dressed in the rich, regal attire of the Victorian aristocrasy. The clubs leader, Tamaki Suoh, wore a blue velvet gown over his soft white linen shirt, and his lover, the groups 'Shadow King', Kyouya Ohtori wore a matching red smoking jacket. Mori-senpai was perefectly framed by a long military trench coat with silver trimmings and a wide, sharp-v shaped lapel. Honi-senpai looked mindblowingly adorable in a white and blue edged naval captain uniform, the round skippers hat slighlty ajar on his fair head.Forbidden you say? 155 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Forbidden you say? 16After the Host session ended, the twins and Ryuu were making their way to the front courtyard to be picked up from school. Even though they had all changed out of their fancy-dress, Hikaru and Kaoru were still blushing from the memory of seeing Ryuu dressed as a dashing young admiral. The pale boy, despite the wicked glint in his eyes earlier, still seemed unaware of the full extent of the twins' fascination with him. He smiled and joked along with them, holding their hands, but all the while never noticing Kaoru's awkward fidgeting or Hikaru's lustfull stares. The trio stopped short as they turned a corner. Ahead of them they saw Haruhi Fujioka backed against a wall. An older boy was talking to her, his tone aggressive. Ryuu picked out the details of a stylised tiger on the boys face. He yankes silently on the twins arms, and the three of them fell into hiding behind anything they could find... like Hikaru using a lampshade. The other two didn't notice them. Ryuu strained his hearing.Forbidden you say? 165 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Forbidden you say? 14Ryuu wandered the brightly lit corridors of Ouran Academy. He had no intention of turning up for his next lesson because it was Italian, and he was already fluent from living with his mother. So he texted the twins to let them know, and Hikaru replied for both of them:Forbidden you say? 145 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
'Just don't go finding any invisible caves dude, Kaoru would never forgive me for letting you wonder off '
Ryuu had smiled at that, sure that Kaoru would do slightly more than never forgive Hikaru... then again Hikaru would hardly take it well either. As the late morning sun approached the peak of the blue sky, as the last blossoms fell in the gardens outside, as a slight gust of wind fluttered through an open window and rustled Ryuu's glacial hair, a dark haired boy with a tiger tattoo around his right eye came out of a reading room behind the albino. Ryuu ignored the sound of the boys footsteps, but the other boy noticed the unmistakeable black uniform. Ryuu sighed as the boy turned to follow him. The two of them wal

He wrapped his arms around the thick body, feeling his heart cry with joy.
Finally he felt the heavy arms lift, disappointment tore his heart. He ignored it though, like always and simply smiled up at the taller man.
''You take care of yourself, okay kid?'' The man messed his brown hair.
''Do you think... Denmark... likes me?''
''Germany...'' Norway's face turned grave.
''I really... I don't know if hes like that... I'm sorry.'' He frowned, putting a hand on Germany's shoulder.
''No...'' Germany shrugged the arm off his shoulder.
''I sorta figured.''
Norway frowned and wrapped his arms around Germany again clutching his head to his chest.
''You gotta stop letting people push you around Germany.'' He felt his short legs buckling as tears welled in his eyes. He didn't mean to be so

Tony was crunching thoughtfully on a lettuce leaf as he read a long and meticulous design proposal. With a tiny part of his attention, he was also chasing a cherry tomato around his salad plate with a plastic fork, failing again and again to skewer the little fruit.
It should be impossible for people to barge into his officeany would-be bargers would have to run the gauntlet of front desk security, elevators monitored constantly by Jarvis, executive reception, and Pepper.
Really, it just went to show that Janet Van Dyne could barge into any room she damn well pleased (or maybe that she could sweet talk her way through a den of rabid wolverines).
Tony, she said, and slammed the door shut behind her with a graceful flourish.
Mmf? he replied, as his tomato leapt for freedom.
Dont talk with your mouth full, she muttered.
So he swallowed. What can I do for you, Jan?

FragilityBroken spirits are like refracted light; shards of many colors that run the spectrum of fragility. Though immortal, they still feel human emotions: fear, anger, love, grief, frustration, pride, regret, despair, and hope, disappointment… hurt.Fragility2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
More colors than what the human eye can possibly see.
Though his own faults shade him from the fact that they are, in fact, spirits in every sense of the word, Jack Frost will be the first to agree that he is very much broken. It's the fact that he still keeps on trying that keeps him sane.
There was a time when he was younger, a brand-new spirit. Confused, fun-loving and ultimately, naïve; a time when he would have denied and truly have believed with every fiber in his body, that there was nothing wrong with him. Bruised, bent out of shape, a little lonely, but never broken.
Broken was for mortals who could afford to whine and be scared, truly frightened; certainly not one, Jack Frost. Certainly it wasn't him that was feeling this ach

Smoothing It Over
When Tony didnt wake on his own, it was usually Jarvis who did the waking. In his typical brusque manner, the AI would announce the date, time, weather, and number of voice and email messages. If prodding was required, he resorted to turning the news up to uncomfortable volumes until Tony fled to the shower out of self-defense.
Occasionally, if there was a very early, very important appointment, Pepper would brave the potential horrors of Tonys bedroom to drag him out of bed.
Up, up, up! she called loudly, clapping next to his ear and startling him awake. Shower, shave, now.
He blinked at her and rubbed his left eye. Muh? he managed.
Its six, youve got time for a nice hot shower to wake you up so you dont say anything awful and idiotic like you did yesterday.

His FaceHe had caved.His Face2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Incessant nagging on your half and countless messages begging him to let you see his face finally had broken through.
Your skype address was dialed and you answered with no hesitation, watching the screen intently as the webcam on the other end connected.
A Sup Guy mask greeted you, like all those countless fanarts you had spent your days fawning over and falling for, making you grin.
“Are you ready?” He asked, voice creeping into your ears and making you melt, knowing they were yours alone.
“Yes” You said with a nod.
Hands moved to untie the string keeping the mask in place, making you shift in your seat, anticipation filling your being. The knot was undone and the mask was slowly removed yet as you watched, all that anticipation faded away into fear.
The face was devoid of anything that would give it that name.
The place for eyes, nose, mouth or anything else was empty, leaving a flat plane.
You gasped in horror and yet, that was not the only thi

Tony was not avoiding Steve.
It just happened that, in the hectic, slightly hungover aftermath of the little soiree with Natasha and Pepper and Rhodey and Pete, he was enormously busy.
And Rhodey had brought another batch of non-critical lab equipment with him, including Dummy (that left only one big box of knick-knacks and any spare parts for the cars).
It couldnt be considered avoiding until it stretched on for more than a day.
and the Quin team still needs your okay on the latest blueprint, Pepper was saying, keeping up as he strode toward the private express elevator down the hall from his office.
Theyre not gonna get it until they clean up the wiring to the rear control hatches, he replied easily, loosening his tie and unbuttoning his cuffs. Parties were one thing, but his true playtime would always be tinkering in his lab. Hed been looking forward to having another

The white creature nodded once, expression never changing since the first time he saw it. Yes. A world where humans and Pokémon are separated like black and white. A world where no human owns a Pokémon. A world where Pokémon roam free to their liking. Its tail swayed left and right, blank red eyes staring into the hopeful pair of greens.
The perfect world. And all will come true in just a blink of an eye. It saw the hope in the boy's gaze. It saw the dreams the boy once dreamt. The playroom was empty as usual, with them being the two beings present. N stood in silence, mouth slightly parted to hear such an opportunity.
And all you have to do, It slowly tilted its head as its gaze drilled into innocence's eyes, is make a contract with me!
The world was perfect.
N stood in complete pride. The Pokémon were seen frolicking and running about in the woods. Pidoves were chirping. Nidorans were
