"Here you are, Vivi. What are you doing?"
Vivi turned to look at Dagger. He was sitting on the large parapet of stone that enclosed the upper terrace of Conde Petit, his short legs swaying in the void. The young princess leaned her elbows on the parapet and looked out at the desert landscape that surrounded the city, the dry, warm breeze blowing her dark bangs.
"I-I’m looking at the sun,” Vivi answered, averting his eyes from the girl and fixing them on the star that dominated the terse, deep blue sky. It was the most perfect circle that could be found in nature. It was also the purest white that Vivi had ever seen. Humans didn’t seem to be able to replicate such a pure, yet incandescent colour.
Dagger looked up as well, squirting her eyes - but after a second she brought a hand to her forehead to shadow her eyes. “I don’t see anything.”
Vivi blinked and looked at her. How could she not see the sun? You really couldn’t miss it.

Then well put you through some tests
Have you ever solved equations,
And shied out of your requests?
Have you ever scored a hundred,
On any tests youve taken,
And have you ever wondered
How you were ever mistaken?

To becoming a fine Asian
But dont get too confident,
Youre still only partly Asian

Do you know the meaning of biorhythm,

Step up, and well see, if youre styles on par
Is your wardrobe style questionable,
And all your best clothes cheap?
And to make your glasses acceptable,

With a slight grunt he awoke and the peaceful expression turned to the pissed one we knew too well from the previous hours.
"I hate this. Now even the fucking sun is against me...Why do I have to do this?" he mumbled but no one answeared.
We had told him pretty often and were tired of his complaining.
I felt a slight urge to grunt "Stop complaining" to him like he did to his double when we were shooting a video for 'Mein Teil'.
He probably wouldn't have got it and I would soon be flying out of the window and rolling in the grass.
"First they look at me in a weird way cos I'm a citizen in two countries and I happened to have my US passport. Then the plane! Who is that tight-ass who decided that you're not allowed to smoke in plane?! How they think I'll manage through a nearly 9 hours without smoking even one cig!" Richard continued complaining.
The flight from Berlin to Winnipeg in Canada had been pure hell. Richard decided to

The villains were gathering, no Batman to stop them.
The signal was shining up high in the air,
The bats eyes were blind to the black and white flare.
A plan like no other had just taken flight,
And a vision of grins flashed through the cold night.
Through an alley I walked, the tension abound
Hearing insane laughter, and shadows around
Pulling my scarf up over my nose,
I glance down and notice a box by my toes.
The lid of the box with the handle in red,
Was open and laughing, its receiver was dead.
The moon flew high above me in sight,
I knew that the Joker had committed this blight.
When, what to my wondering eyes did appear,
Two figures grinning, a chuckle I hear.
His face was grotesque, his hair a bright green,
His suit was tacky, the worst Id ever seen.
His assistant beside him in her dress red and black,
Her unorthodox beauty took me aback.
Now what have we here? he laughed as he said,

It isn't really considered sleepwalking, since he barely sleeps anyways. It's just something he shouldn't be forced to do, sleeping. He fights anyone who dares question his strength, but he is also constantly in fight with himself. It is just something low, he thinks, having to rely on things like food or sleep. So, for the most part, he simply doesn't. Not until he is on the brink of being unable to carry on, and he is stretching those limits with each passing day. He only has one single eye, so he prefers to keep it open always alert, always on edge. He's so thin most of the time that should he turn sideways, one day he might disappear and he is still the strongest, the unbreakable one among a pile of pathetically weak fools.
Espada inquebrantable. If nothing can break through his skin, nothing can get to him. Untouchable.
Of course, even for someone like him, it would be impossible to skip sleeping every night, but he does it as often as

"Jack! Get down from there!" Called Pippa, Jack's little sister.
Jack swung from the middle branch of a tree, carelessly and upside-down, by his legs.
"Jack, be careful." Called his mother, setting up the picnic that they had planned for the day.
Jack chuckled, climbing down the ruff bark of the tree and skipped over towards the blanket that was laid out on the grass. Opening the picnic basket, he grabbed out the freshly made bread his mother had baked the morning before and tore off the crusty end to eat.
"Jack." Scolded his mother sitting down to join him. "Pippa come over here and have some lunch." She called as Pippa picked some wildflowers nearby. She happily skipped over to them to join them.
"Mom, Jack and I are going ice-skating later. Is that okay?"
"We are?" Asked Jack.
"Yeah. You promised, remember?" Pippa muttered to him.

You walked into the Living room where Sherlock was sitting on the couch. You smiled at him brightly, knowing that he was deep in thought about something. You knew that your birthday was coming up but you didn't know if Sherlock would remember or even care; he was very unpredictable. His head shot up and he smiled at you,

We got outside and joined the others at the porch.
The barbeque was really fun. Once or twice I took a glance at Richard who always seemed to get a little nervous when he noticed my look and started to get really drunk.
It was beginning to get dark and Richard seemed more relaxed. But maybe this was only caused by the mass of beer he had drunk.

"I'll go to sleep on the uncomfortable sofa, Paul, try to survive" he laughed.

Till turned on the radio and found a classical music station that happened to be playing a waltz. "Follow my lead," Till's deep voice vibrated from his chest through mine as he stood directly in front of me.
"I'm not a fucking girl!" I practically squeaked.
"Do you want to learn how to dance or not?" Till's thick accented voice boomed in English.
I sighed and gave in, allowing the bigger man to put one hand on the small of my back, and the other hand's fingers to thread themselves together with mine. The heat of his body seeped through his clothing and right through mine, causing me to feel flushed.
"This doesn't feel right," I confessed, feeling awkward.
Till paused and gave me a look that said, "No shit."
"No," I continued. "I mean, I feel like I should be leading."
One week away from my marriage to Caron, and what was I worried about? Not knowing how to dance properly.

but if you look past that you will see
something so dark twisted and ugly
your true nature revealed
the thing that cant be sealed

There is something just eating me up inside my holllow chest.
There is something on the tip of my tongue I just want to say,
I have been thinking alot about what would be for the best.
Since you have been gone there is something my life seems to lack,
I never knew how to say this face to face incase it was wrong to do.
So through this poem is the only way I can tell you I want you back,
I know it is a lost cause but no matter what I will always love you.
Time is such a useful thinking tool when you are all confused in the head,
It helps you work out each of your problems so that you start to see clear.
But I wish it could do it quicker so I could make you smile and laugh instead,
What i want is not important though because I am the worlds biggest rear.
I know how you feel and I know i cannot change any part of your mind,
The world deserves to have someone a lot better than me living on it.

Zanpakutō Name: Gorrión (Sparrow)
Zanpakutō Appearance: Although Welsch is one of the best known faces of the Arrancar race, little public information can be found about Gorrión, his Zanpakutō. This is due to many factors, including his ability to deal with threats without the need to release his sealed powers, which makes the abilities and appearance of his Resurrección an even greater curiosity. But the secrecy of what form his Zanpakutō takes is something of a guessing game to those who know little about it. They often spread rumors of it hiding within the many folds of his uniform's black sash--a blade or dagger of some kind. Others believe that he keeps it hidden in order to lure unsuspecting opponents into attacking him, assuming him unarmed. And while many choose to spread conjecture and rumor as to what shape and form it takes, few would ever naturally guess how peculiar it really is.
Within Welsch's mouth lies a small sphere, re
