"Wait! So that means Caleb is going to be at the club when I'm there?!" Danni giggled as she slammed the car door, making Alec gasp in alarm.
"Hey! Easy on the car," He hissed, putting his hand on the hood and rubbing it tenderly, sticking out his bottom lip. "It's okay, baby. I won't let her hurt you anymore."
"You're so lame," Danni murmured, grabbing her fencing bag.
They walked up the steps and pulled on the insanely heavy door. As it opened, air rushed into Danni's face, making her braids flutter backwards. Alec noticed her eyes widen as she saw Caleb walking out of the locker room, his mask tucked under his arm and his sabre in hand. He seemed to be in a deep conversation with the Asian man that was yelling at him at the tournament. He glanced up from their discussion and waved at Alec and his sister. The hazel-eyed boy smiled warmly and waved back, Danni in too much of a daze to respond. Her brother smirked and grabbed Danni by the arm

Chapter Ten: Kanji
The group trudged on toward the dark, gaping Rift through the desolate landscape, the chill wind seeming to howl through the barren, dusty plain. The black clouds above rumbled ominously as though attempting desperately to unleash a downpour upon the thirsty, broken ground.
Souji held tightly onto Naoto, covering her shivering body with his jacket as she leaned closer to him for warmth. Turning slightly, he looked around at the rest of the group to see how they were dealing with the sudden drop in temperature. Yosuke and Chie huddled together with Yukiko in the middle, all three protecting each other with their body heat. Rise snuggled close to Teddie, who seemed all too happy for the closeness. But Kanji seemed stubbornly o

Interview with `loish
~MemoiresDuneFille asks "Loish, what inspired you to become an artist?"
I can't say that anything specific really inspired me. It was more a natural progression. I have been drawing since I was very young and honestly do not remember when I even started doing it, but I do remember always enjoying it and seeing it as my 'talent' throughout elementary and middle school. By the time I had to make a career choice in high school, I decided to do pursue it professionally because I just couldn't stand dividing my time between schoolwork and making my personal drawings. It was torture! So I felt I had to do it in order to stay sane :] That's pretty much how it went!

I don't believe this...
Naoto Shirogane sat herself down on one of the horizontal ventilation shafts that littered the roof, crossing her arms and trying desperately not to lose control of her emotions. Even though the day was beautiful, the sun was shining, and the temperatures were beginning to become warmer with the approach of spring, Naoto was having the worst day ever. She slowly began to take deep breaths and let them out in succession, her normal method of calming herself down.
I should not allow myself to feel this way... Naoto thought to herself with a scowl, unable to stop herself from letting her temper get the better of her. And yet how can I possibly stave off such frustration? This occurs every single--
Live ForeverRise Kujikawa could easily tell that Naoto Shirogane was breaking. She could see it in the bluenette's face. It was subtle, and the detective prince barely ever allowed herself to falter in public, but Rise knew what was happening behind that facade of intellect and cold attitude the 16-year-old girl had developed at an early age. All of the pressure, all of the pain, all of the stress that comes with life, and topping it all off with Souji dying in a train accident on his way home...Naoto was falling to pieces before Rise's very eyes. It only got worse when she was let off her job for failing a recent murder case, and that was because she was still badly affected both mentally and emotionally by learning that her boyfriend had been killed only mere hours after she last saw him. No one, not Yosuke, not Chie, not Yukiko, not even Kanji, her closest male friend next to Souji, saw how badly Naoto was truly hurting inside. They knew she was suffering from depression, but it was growing danLive Forever6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Yosuke blinked as Chie whispered next to him as the group continued to march toward the Rift. "What? Now? But Chie... What if Yukiko doesn't wanna talk?"
"She won't have a choice," Chie insisted, folding her arms over her chest. "I'll slap her silly if she gives me that bull about her problems not being important again!"
Yosuke appeared anxious, but nodded. "Alright. I guess I'll keep my eyes open for the big ugly, then."
"You do that." Chie grinned. "But don't be a daredevil, okay?"
"Hey, that's my line!" Yosuke winked.
"I know." Chie winked back as she moved toward Yukiko in the line, bounding between Teddie and Rise, who were busy looking for the penguin in their animal cracker boxes.

"It's so dark in there..." whispered Rise, unable to tear her gaze from the wide, vertical Rift.
Souji faintly registered the fact that none of his friends could look away from the massive crack in the TV World, and he was forced to exert considerable effort in diverting his own eyes from it.
"Should we... even be here?" asked Chie to no one in particular.
"What are you talking about?" said Yosuke, looking confused.
"Well, I meant that it makes me feel weird. Just standing right next to it... I don't know how to describe it. It's almost familiar somehow."
"I know what you mean," agreed Yukiko. "It's like I'm tired. Almost drained."
Everyone turned to look at Souji as though he had only just arrived.

Naoto let out a tiny unladylike burp; she didn't even bother to say 'excuse me'. "Why should I...?"
Rise pointed down at Naoto's stomach, which was already starting to peek out from underneath her shirt. "You're getting kinda big..."
"Hmph," Naoto placed the now-cleaned plate aside and snatched up her tenth piece of vanilla cake, "I'll eat as much as I want, Rise-chan..."
Rise sighed. Ever since their last venture into the TV world, Naoto had been afflicted with a new status effect known as 'Extreme Hunger'. How to cure it and just how long it lasts was still being studied up upon by Souji, Yosuke and the others; Rise was left behind to make sure that Naoto was kept full and happy until they found the antidote. So, Rise had ordered three large wedding cakes t

“Heartmaker: Little is known about this obscure profession and most accounts come from the patients themselves. What is known is this; all verified rules regarding magic do not seem to apply to them, and they are free to do anything they desire. They can turn the nonphysical aspect of a human heart into something corporeal, alterable, and mechanical. They can fix cardiac diseases using gears, and even replace a real heart with a manmade one. Heartmakers are rare, valued, and much feared.” – The Narrow Ways Encyclopedia

"...I didn't know you liked pocky..." Yukiko remarked.
Naoto shrugged. "It's alright, I suppose. Kanji-kun bought me some yesterday, and it wasn't half bad. Do you want to try it, Amagi-san?"
Yukiko smiled. "I can have a taste? Really? You don't mind?"
"Sure...I don't see a problem with it..."
Smirking, Yukiko leaned over, and gently bit down on the other end of Naoto's pocky stick. Naoto's eyes widened, and her face flushed bright crimson. From this position, she could see the raven-haired girl's tongue running along the edge of the pocky stick, and that only made her cheeks become even redder. Yukiko brushed back her hair to keep it from flowing over her shoulders.
Snapping off a tiny chunk of the pocky stick with her teeth, Yukiko continued to smirk cockily like the seductress she secretly was. "Mmm

Souji Seta took a long drag off his cigarette before snuffing it out, and tossing it carelessly into a nearby barrel. He was sitting outside on the porch of an old abandoned shrine, hidden from the view of society by a large circle of trees that had grown around the tiny building over the years. The front door had already fallen apart, and the place was filled with spider webs and scrawny little animals looking for shelter. The only real thing Souji found useful about this place was that he could come here and have a nice smoke without anyone getting up in his face. It was nice. The ground underneath Souji's feet was covered almost completely in orange and red leaves, and a cold breeze blew past. Fall was coming pretty fast, he noticed grimly.
Souji let out a loud yawn and stretched his arms for a moment before standing up. He figured he should get back to the Dojima household before Nanako got worried about him. He reached down to grab his boo

The visions of his past were haunting him, and he felt desperate as he stared into the fire, trying to sort his jumbled thoughts. The Champion soon stirred in his sheets, rising just slightly to view Fenris lovingly. He quickly became worried by the former slave's demeanor.
'Fenris? Is everything alright?' Hawke asked him.
'No, I ' struggled the stern elf, his stoic and defensive guard down.

He couldn't believe he had forgotten about her.

As his footsteps pounded on the cement sidewalk, as his breath came in ragged gasps, he only had one thought in his mind.
I have to see her.
Rounding the turn and entering the grounds of Gekkoukan High, he ignored the stares of all the students as he headed straight for the school, straight for the roof. He remembered the meeting place she had told him when he was in his coma. He remembered every one of her visits his consciousness had been so kind to be there for. Even if he had been unable to move his body, he was still able to have some form of alertness, and strangely, everything during that time except the visits from her were muffled, hazy, as if looking through a foggy window. The rest of the time, when his awareness did slip, his mind was filled with thoughts of her.
"We decided to make the roof our meeting place, after all of this is over," he remembered her saying quietly,

She looked down the sunny, shimmery spot
Where the road becomes a river
And realized with a quiver,that
The gunmetal silhouette was close.
She tried to run, but her left shoe
Was stuck in molten pitch
She felt pins and needles under her toes.
(And in her neck where two drops of salt
Decided to join up, form a thin stream, and wait).
She left the shoe behind and ran
On a road so hot
That it felt icy
(Like a frozen Coke can).
One time she hid inside a rose bush and was covered in nicks
Another time she blended into the grey-blue shadow of a power plant
Another time she rested in a café restroom
Another time, behind a piñata,
A recycle bin, a Burmese Mountain Dog, a
Makeshift stage, a water-cooler, a cut-out of Justin Bieber;
She hid, held her breath, waited.
(He just won't take the hint
Holding his long, ready, poem in hand
He needed audience).
He needs her eyes, her palm
Her mouth making shapes
Of appreciation and gratitude.
(He somehow needs only her.)
