Just to let you know I will add some notes to the story if I need to at the end or the beginning of each chapter. This is completely fan based on the anime/manga Black Butler. This story will not be part of the same storyline as the anime or manga but it will have the same characters and feel to it as the original (hopefully). The character I added to the story is my own and the new storyline is mine as well. Also letting you know now, there is no YAOI in it!!! Thank you for your time.
P.S. I love feedback. If I have any mistakes in the spelling, please NOTE me.

I Lost My HeartMy love has gone, my yearning passed.I Lost My Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I lost my way, I lost my heart.
I didn’t care to guard it well,
Now it is to be found nowhere.
Just now I thought I had it here,
But only emptiness remains.
It didn’t shatter, didn’t break,
Just disappeared and left no trace.
Oh, tell me why I couldn’t be
The one that lasted evermore.
Oh, tell me, couldn’t I be good
Take better care of what is dear?
But love, alas, I lost my heart
Forgive me that I didn’t see
How swiftly it escaped my grasp
And left this place forevermore.
I lost my way, I can’t go on,
There’s nothing left worth fighting for.
I lost my heart, and I’m afraid
Without my heart I cannot love.

Nina sat back against a tree and sighed. This day had not gone well at all. It all started with her stumbling into the dark grass
Nina took a few frightened steps back. This pokemon shouldn't be here It should be in pinwheel forest! The Sawk looked at her angrily. It almost seemed scared.

You lean into it, eyes hanging partially closed as you nuzzle into his palm.

You open your eyes and look up at him, daring to smile, though it is small. Nearly hidden. This isn't allowed- it's tabboo, unheard of- well, perhaps not, but for your caste it certainly is. You slide your fingers up his jaw, slipping them beneath the legs of his sunglasses and slowly lifting them onto the top of his head.
His eyes are beautiful- so much like your own, though his are natural, rubies and scarlettes, while yours are too vivid, too mutant. He whispers his love as he leans in, slowly pressing his forehead to yours. Your smile grows minutely and you move your arms to wrap around his neck.
There are a few seconds of calm silence as you stand there in each other's arm

Denied RegretDenied Regret3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've been everywhere
I've seen everything
I don't want to see it again.
Bad things happened.
As they should,
but you see
these things didn't make me feel good.
They were like thousands of knives,
poking at my skin
Wanting desperately to break in.
I have taken him away,
His life and heavenly soul.
Would it matter
If I didn't regret a thing?
I'd be a murderer and a thief
Since the day I was born
Sprouting was the ground knotted and twisted
My limbs creak with pain
My heart beats with anger
Of these things I've done
Because darling, as you can see
I am not real
I never want to be
I'd regret the moments that I would see
You don't enjoy life so much
When you realize you're not loved.

Firebird The radio was the last thing Gwen packed.Firebird3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was an afterthought, an act of impulse. She’d been in the pantry, raiding every scrap of non-perishable food she could get her hands on. She shoved granola bars and bags of pretzels into the folds of the clothing that was already taking up the majority of the space in her beat-up purple backpack. She’d had the backpack since she started Kindergarten. Joel had never cared enough to buy her a new one.
When her bag was bursting at the seams, Gwen jerked the zipper closed, using her knee and the side of the washing machine as a makeshift clamp to hold the bag shut. Just as she tugged the zipper into place, though, a blush of pink caught her eye from behind the dryer. She set the bag down quietly on the stained linoleum and tried to get a better look at the object. It was small, pink, and probably plastic, but tha
How to make a decent character1. Avoid making fan characters. What's the point of creating if you're piggybacking off someone else's idea?How to make a decent character5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
2. If all your characters look the same or look related, or they all look identical to characters from shows you like, you're doing it wrong. Practice variety in facial proportions, body types, heights, ethnicities, personalities, and ages. The easier it is to recognize a character without relying on their outfit or hairstyle, the better.
3. When basing a character off any culture's mythology, DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST.
4. If you're going to make a character with any sort of physical/mental disease, DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST.
5. Making a character original doesn't necessarily mean you need to give them a super detailed, cluttered-up backstory or appearance. Simplicity is a wonderful thing, and the most memorable characters are simple characters.
6. If your character is an outcast, especially in a social environment such as school, DO NOT make them attractive with
BryceHe always stands very close to people when he speaks to them, staring with those huge golden eyes and leaning in ever so slightly, as if he is craving their touch and the feel of their breath and their hands more than anything. This is the first thing you notice when you meet him, the closeness. You ache, for a reason you don't know, to bridge the gap. To touch him. Your fingers twitch towards him but you keep your hands beside you.Bryce3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
And then you hear him speak, and everything else seems loud and bright and harsh compared to the gentleness of him. His lips are chapped and his big galaxy earrings glitter and his hair stands straight up and his freckles are like kisses, and you think he will sound like all the others and then he speaks; he speaks and something shifts inside you and a little storm begins to crackle and swell inside your chest and suddenly you love him more than anything.
And then he finishes asking you the time, and you tell him, and he walks on.
This Is Why We Can't Be In LoveThe day we first met, she was naked. The empty gallery had turned the A/C off and she said, "it's hot, too hot for clothes," and she stripped down to skin.

"How many times have you done this today?" I asked her. "Also, hello."
I know I flushed pinker than her, fully clothed in my capris and navy fingerless gloves even though it was already July-- burning for her, because she didn't seem to notice her own skin.
She smiled, asked, "Am I beautiful?"
"I don't even know you."
"Okay," she said.
"I have to go," I said.

She was still naked, our second encounter. I was eating a blizzard in the Dairy Queen and she was sitting at the counter with the tall stools. I tried to avert my eyes, to focus on whatever was outside the window in the parking lot, but she caught my gaze in hers and trapped me. As I watched her, she grinned and twirled, bare feet on the linoleum floor,

Tears streamed down my face, and I didn't try to stop them. I saw Lovi crumple to the ground, then Father looked up and saw me. I hurriedly closed Lovino's window and locked it, making sure Father couldn't get to me.Romano x reader- Hallelujah Part 33 years ago in Romance More Like This
"You're next." I knew he'd say. I stepped back in fear. Shaking, I sank to the ground and sobbed until I had no more tears. Slowly, I crawled to the window, peering over the window sill. Father was gone. Lovi lay in heap on the floor, bruised and battered. I unlocked the window and pushed it up.
Lovi didn't stir. I rapped on the window lightly. Nothing. I knocked harder and he slowly began to move again. Somehow, he managed to put on a smile when he saw me. He opened the window and climbed across. He winced as he moved and I knew then how bad Father had hurt him. I put a hand up to my mouth.

I shot up and let him lean on me, steadying him. "No, I'll find a job You're still hurt." I looked around, trying to find a way to tell the time. "The sun's out, so it should be about time for places to open. I should get going." I sat Lovi down on the bench.

"I will, Lovi." I bent down and hugged him.
"I promise." With that, I gently kissed his forehead. "You be safe too."

"Asgardians," Loki corrected. "Some might know of us as the Aesir."

"Stop repeating yourself," Loki sighed. "Yes, we're gods. We cannot die."
"I find that hard to believe," you say shakily.
"Do you?" Loki looked at you, his eyes - those cat-like eyes, a dance of bright green and sky blue - bear down on you as if you're a fugitive. You take a step back.

My face flushed involuntarily as I quickly walked toward the many rows of fold-out chairs. I kept my eyes on the floor when my rear hit the chair at the end of the back row, and I tried my best to block out the loud chatter coming from almost every other mouth in the room. I was greatly outnumbered by strangers, what looked to be over a hundred other people seated in the giant rectangular formation of chairs set out at the front of the room.
I allowed my eyes to scan the room and its inhabitants. A man sat patiently at the front facing the crowd of people. I recognized him. He was Erwin Smith, the band director, the man for whom I had auditioned. He was very

What had conspired between the two of you wasn't what haunted him. No, he could deal with that; change was just a part of life after all in his mind. It was always the what ifs that got to him. He always thought about how things could be better, or how his days could be filled with purpose once more. Usually he'd cover this up with a bit of whiskey late at night, but even when he was buzzed, the pain was still lurking somewhere. You were gone, and there was nothing he could do about it. He only had himself to blame though. He was a cold bastard, one that literally had no conception of what a relationship should look like. All he knew was his heart became warm and heavy whenever you were around, and it had shattered when you left him. Being your boss and still having to see you everyday didn't exactly help either. He could have fired you and had that one last vengeful stab at you, but he couldn't find it in his heart to
