Clone Wars: BrothersDarth Maul looks up at the creature that is calling itself his brother.Clone Wars: Brothers3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He sees black stripes on a yellow face; hooked, tan horns; orange eyes. He sees black armor like the shell of a turtle. This must be another animal, come to fight Maul for his nest. Maul shivers all over, readying himself to get up. He arcs like a cat. He tastes the air with his teeth and his tongue. It smells like ashes and fire, but it always does. Maybe, somewhere, there's the tang of speeder exhaust from above, and something electrical.
The creature talks to him. The voice is deep, and the words, garbled. It has shoved its way into his den, and sniffed while it looked at his scrap metal and his fire and his drawings. It is a big, wide-shouldered creature.
Maul has trouble with words sometimes. He remembers that they used to be easy for him, but now they seem to stick and repeat instead of forming into new shapes quickly. The shapes of letters seem to have color and sound of their own.

As Dib stood outside of his home, he couldn't help the overwhelming loneliness that washed over him. After the neighbours reaction, he highly doubted anyone would take him seriously. Not like they had taken him seriously before anyway.
On top of the extreme aloneness, the boy was feeling a massive amount of paranoia. His house had proven to be just as dangerous a place to be now, and after seeing how easily and quickly Zim could infiltrate it, he realized he would never feel at peace inside of it. He would always be looking around himself, checking to make sure he was truly alone.
Dib took only small, slow steps towards the house now, his eyes flicking everywhere as he scanned for any threats. He was quite jumpy now though, so when a small leaf flew by him he jumped backwards a step and let out a high pitched scream. He began to breathe rapidly until realizing it was just a leaf before taking a deep breath and staring forward again, his eyes continuing to scan his environm

I'm plain. I'm boring. I don't have any sexual appealing qualities.
Heck, I'm a C cup for goodness sakes.
I never went outside during the entirety of my middle school life. The only time I stepped outside was when I went to take my precious dog to go do his business and to go to school. If I went to the mall, it was rare. I had a tendency to lock myself in my room the minute I got home to read a book or to do homework. I sometimes studied when I had a test the next day and I barely ate because I never did anything to have my stomach weep for hunger.
I was lonely. I was depressed. I rarely ever smiled.
Geez, I was like a scary frowning clown.
The moment I entered mid-high, I only had a few friends. Those friends were entirely online.
Yes, I had a boyfriend. He was my childhood friend. He doesn't count, he's a boyfriend, and he's not someone I can go complain to about my girlish problems and fangirl about my many fandoms with.

When Darth Maul thinks back on his time in the cave he thinks that he can still feel mechanical legs creaking around him and a heavy body dragging on the floor. He rebuilt himself from black plates and used the bones and teeth of animals for his joints. He worked oil and fat into his engines the same, with no particular thought for practicality or speed. He did not need to walk streets because he was here in this rusting red land and he would be here forever, every minute the future and all other futures unthought of, living and killing.
But when he is revived and resuscitated and his memory returned to him, he finds that the spidery legs he made were a cage. They frighten him with their messy unwillingness to move together, and thinking of them attached to the remnants of his body makes it all worse. He becomes, in quick moments that are not relevant to the future(s), afraid of himself.
But he always kept fear close to him, even closer than the steel

"Are you sure about this, _____? I mean, this isn't some goldfish you won at the fair," the Austrian mused. She rolled her eyes and tugged playfully at his ruffle-y sleeve.
"I know that, but I want to keep it. You know how I feel about that," she replied, so repulsed by the thought she couldn't bring herself to say the word. "Yeah, I know, Francis is a total ass for leaving, but I'm not gonna get rid of it just 'cause of that!" _____ placed her hands protectively around her swollen stomach. When her ex-boyfriend Francis found out that she was pregnant, he broke it off and left town.

Geoffroy avait toujours nourri un grand mépris à l'égard de la chair, considérant la passion comme un terme creux dénué de fond, et excuse à la luxure, qu'il méprisait plus encore par ailleurs. Son corps était l'instrument garant de sa force et de sa lucidité, l'abandonner aux facilités du plaisir ne s'accordait pas avec son caractère. Il n'avait jamais eu grand mal à contrôler ses élans, et passé ses émois de jeune adulte, se contentait de liaisons brèves et notoirement très irrégulières. Il savait que son père, avant de se marier, s'était plu pour sa part à accueillir dans son lit toute femme qui lui plaisait. Il suffisait qu'elle disposa d'assez de charmes et d'admiration à son encontre pour satisfaire son orgueil de roi. Son frère, lui, cherchait la compagnie des femmes pour tenter de combler sa solitude et son besoin d'amour, abreuvé constamment par un profond sentiment d'abandon. Geoffroy se moquait de ces considérations. Sa seule présence lui suffisait, il peinait à supporter le

Sunday had arrived and everyone was preparing for the expedition outside the walls. I mounted my horse, holding the reigns tightly as I placed my feet into the stirrups, shaking slightly. Despite being an "all-powerful" warrior, I had never quite grasped the handle of horse riding. Despite their majestic nature, they were still large creatures that, when spooked, could easily knock you to the ground and crush you.
Everyone going on the expedition were on horseback, the journey would be near to impossible to complete on foot. Looking around, I saw that many of my peers were almost in tears; obviously scared out of their wits. I spotted Eren, who saw situated just behind me, and gave him a small, encouraging smile, which he returned. Commander Erwin was yelling out instructions before the gate slowly started to open. Looking next to me, my (e/c) eyes locked onto Captain Levi’s own steely blue eyes briefly before returning my attention to what was happening in front of me.

but not like Rousseau's
sucking out warmth like poison
leaving only windburnt frost
tacked to the window pane
all we remember
is the numbness
skittish steps across the ice
snowflakes pasted to our faces
smoke rising from our lips
dragged across bleak clouds
winter has us captured
bound by fur and walls
drifting in our eggshelled silence
bone cold until we birth ourselves by warmth
emerge from our shells wet and heaving
uncurl our fingers one by one
joints crackling like fire at our backs
until spring comes
drip by tender drip
old wounds thaw
we are found raw,
graced again by feeling.

Iruka sighed and slowly headed to his front door, knowing he still had a few more seconds before Naruto would have reached his house and had the chance to burst right trough his door.
As he opened his door he could see Naruto running towards his house at full speed still loudly calling his name and waving frantically.
Iruka flinched at the loud voice but couldn't help but smile at Naruto's childish eagerness and enthusiasm. Yes he was truly happy that the boy was still so close to him after all these years.
"IRUKA-SENSEI!!!!" Naruto proclaimed loudly when he skidded to a halt, kicking up dust in doing so.
"Calm down Naruto-kun… No need to keep shouting like that." Iruka said while clearing the doorway to let Naruto in. Naruto gave him a bear hug before darting further into Iruka's house.
"What's gotten you so excited today? Did Sasuke-kun tripped over his shoelaces or something?" Iruka asked.

But it made you smile
Would it still be a sin?
If I opened the door
But turned you away
Would you still come in?
If I sliced my skin
But it didn't hurt
Would it still be wrong?
If I acted all brave
But couldn't face it
Would I still be strong?
If I tied my noose
Around a tree's open arms
Would it be an embrace?
If I left tonight
And begged you stay
Would you still give chase?
If I committed sin
But hurt nobody
Would I be welcome above?
If I do something you hate
But only for your good
Could it still be true love?

She groans a bit before getting up slowly, everyone backs away curiously.
She had (h/l) (h/c) hair, strangely dull (e/c) eyes, bandages were the only thing that covered her chest, and short ripped shorts.
She had two large 'things' on her back, which peeked America's curiosity.
"Hey what are those things?" he asks. She jumps back, startled by processing all the beautiful men surrounding her.
"You bloody git! They are obviously wings!" England growled, nearly face palming. The american's eyes widened, and he ran up to touch the extra appendage. She flinched and spread her wings slowly, painfully wincing doing so.
"Oh my god!" England frowns.
Her wings were large and beautiful, but battered. There were pure white, at least, under all the scratches and dirt. Oddly, the left wing's middle was completely gone and wrapped

Your alarm clock woke you with a start, startling you from your sleep. You hit the stop button with a smack and pulled the blankets off you, causing your still sleeping cat to be flung off the bed and giving it a jolt to reality. He emitted a yowl as he ran under a desk, hiding from the supposed danger. You looked in his direction and felt bad for him.
"I'm sorry, Alfred, I didn't mean to scare you. Come on out, nothing's here to scare you." You got off your bed and went over to your cat, picked him up gently, and placed him on the bed once more. You pat him on his head and left the room to get some food for you and your cat.
Your cat, Alfred, was a fat one, though very fluffy. He was mostly white, with the exception of poofy, brown, collar-like fur around his neck. Freckles lined his face, making it seem he has glasses. His meow was very odd, kind of like a laugh, but still not quite. Al ate almost anything, making him seem like your own personal vacuum cleaner, however he wouldn't ea

So the viewer (you perhaps?) stumble upon a deviation, the how is unique. What does one do?
1. NEVER leave only an emoticon as the comment. Artists HATE that! It doesn't tell the artist whether the art was good or not, whether the art can improve or not. And emoticon is as useful to an artist as nothing at all. Trust me, leaving only an emoticon will get you nothing in return.
2. DO NOT leave ridiculously repeated emoticons unless one knows this person closely. If it was a random deviant then refrain yourself! I mean, with only three times, I get the picture; I'm sure other artists are the same way. With my friends, I allow them to do it because I know it is their expression of happiness, but if a stranger did it, it would just annoy me.
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT press the +fav button without a comment! In my case and several of my artist friends' cases, we would rather have a comment than a +fav! Feedback is like blood! Give blood, give life! Fuel the artis

Wandering around the world
Following a white rabbit that no one else sees
Talking to a caterpillar
Asking Why, Who, and What
Finding yourself lost in a place with unreadable signs
Sitting down thinking .dreaming or not this is unbelievable
When a cat comes floating down sitting on a tree
His smile is remarkably sharp for a cat to be
He is sly, that cat, should I believe him or not
I guess I have no choice
The flower talk and I have some tea
With figures of my imagination
The Mad Hatter is crazy
The March Hare is unstable
I don't think their are any normal things here
A drunken mouse come out of the pot
I think I'm losing my mind .

A court full of cards
Spades, Diamonds, Hearts, and Clubs
OFF WITH HER HEAD!
Nothing but a dream.

In every direction
With many up and downs
Still to be considered perfection
No thoughts of growing up
Only had you in my vision
No responsibility or worries
About making a bad decision
It was so perfect..wasn't it?
Just laying in the grass
Holding on to your hand
Just watching the days pass
Yesterday was magical
There was happiness and bliss
Only breaking silence
When we gasped after a kiss
We never needed words
Everything could be felt with just a touch
The caressing of your skin
Told you I needed you so much
Was yesterday prefect only for me?
Was I enjoying it by myself?
Tell me why did I have to catch you
Sleeping with somebody else
Giving him that smile
Lipstick painting your lips red
Did you forget all about us
As you slid into his bed?
Yesterday is long gone
Today is filled with much remorse
I tried to numb the pain with liquor
But it seemed to only make it worse
Today is filled with memories
That I wish I could forget
