Also, there's one element to this story that might be hard to grasp. Basically, the characters are existing in a world parallel to the one in Hetalia, where instead of Nations, they're ordinary humans. However, the two worlds are not completely separate from one another. In fact, the worlds are almost exactly the same, the only difference being that there is no such thing as a country personification in the world which this fanfiction takes place. Because of this, the memories from the Nations in one universe sometimes gets mixed up with the memories of the humans in the other universe.
Pairings you can expect: GerIta, PruCan, USUK, Spamano, Rochu, Giripan, FranLux(OC), SuFin,
The Christmas Pantomime Ch9About an hour later, the two teenagers were laying on gilberts bedroom floor, abandoned pizza boxes and coke bottles surrounding them both. Gil was just glad that Matthew was smiling again, trying not to gaze at him quite so much as he told him about something...in all honesty Matthew could be reading him the dictionary and the German would still think it was awesome.The Christmas Pantomime Ch93 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Gil...why is your bedroom in the basement? Doesn't it get cold down here?" Matthew asked, looking around him with mild interest
The other had been waiting for that question, grinning a little as he explained: "well, Vati got sick of all the noise I was making, and Luddy got sick of sharing a room. So my Awesome self got moved down here! And I can be as loud as I like, cos there's two floors between me and the others. And yeah, it gets cold..." gilbert shrugged, "but I guess that's why blankets were invented right?"
Matthew nodded, looking up at the small window in the ceiling "I guess so...and it makes sense..." he smile

The unlikely band had only walked a short distance down the darkening road before coming up on a third little hut; this one made of bricks. Like the first two, it seemed rather poorly constructed. Each brick, instead of being laid with care and cemented in place, was haphazardly stacked. Matthew thought it looked rather like a set of building blocks he'd had when he was younger. They'd been a gift from his father. As a boy, he'd spent hours constructing towers and knocking them down. From the looks of it, this hut was probably just as easily toppled over as his old toy.
"Our other brother lives there in that house," supplied the brown-tufted pig as they passed the makeshift drive or scraped earth. "He's the eldest of the three of us."
"S-s-suppose we should stop i-in and t-tell him where we're going?" The runty pig chewed at the end of his hooves.
"If he's safe and sound we shouldn't bother him. He'll only get upset if he knows we're-"
ImaginationWhat makes us wander offImagination4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
From reality and into a fantasy world
Where everything isn't what it seems
The impossible becomes possible
Far from our world
Is one full of wonder
Characters come to life
In this magical wonderland
Its a special magic
Resting within us
We tap into its power
That resides within the heart
Take a brush
Paint your world
Write a story
Make it come to life
Let your creative side fly free
Make an empty room into a faraway land
Turn your bed into a spaceship
Flying to an alien world
Nothing is impossible
As long as you believe
In the power of your imagination
Don't be afraid to express yourself
Its a special magic
Resting within us
We tap into its power
That resides within the heart
Its a great gift we were born with
Its on the right side of our brains
Right next to the knowledgable side
When were in a jam to solve something
Wanting to escape reality perhaps
All we do is tap into that creative side
For we can overcome obstacles

Rising From the LakeCapricious undine of the sacred blue deepRising From the Lake2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sword of a king she is meant to keep
Spirit of the lake, nymph of the water
Lady of Avalon, sacred isle's daughter
Seductress of Merlin, binding him to stone
Sorceress, enchantress; the waves are her home
Purest of springs to feed the darkest of depths
Where Arthur's living weapon once again is kept
To offer a ruler an icy blade
Comes from the waters this treacherous maid
Beautiful and budding, stoic without smile
Again she does lie, time passing all the while
As the Bear-Named does sleep in a mountainous tomb
So does the Isle sleep, and in the lake's womb
The next of Nimue will twice rise, again
And offer the glorious blade then
Welsh or French, Germanic or Anglo-Saxon
Whether in the heat of battle or at a rusty axe-end
The time will come for the Lady to reform
Out from the water as a spring rain does pour
And once again, shall our great King

The girl in the pondIt was a warm summer night when I found her.The girl in the pond2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her dress was white with yellow sunflowers,
and her auburn hair was spread out around her pale face.
It looked like an ever changing halo
moving gently in a soft breeze.
She had lost a shoe
Her deep, blue eyes stared into heaven
and the freckles of her skin drew constellations
against the pale background to mirror the stars above.
Fish gently nibbled at her fingers and nestled in her hair
paying no heed to her ruby lips which her last breath had left open
almost like an invitation.
I looked at her
I loved her...
Thinking it was the least I could do
now that she had been so carelessly abandoned.
It was my duty to remember her.
I took the memory of her and stuffed it away
for safe keeping
The rest was just a shell
now empty and soon decayed.
Then I left
leaving only the pond behind to swallow its secrets.

Through monochrome the memory lingers
Into your hands I'm resting the pain inside me
I clear my mind, of this unforgivingness.
All of my scars, and all it's traces
You and me, I see
A dream of blind destiny
And it's into your arms I'm melting
And it's the first time I've ever felt like this
You are the hand that's dealt me
The tempter sealing my fate
With a kiss
And in a flash, the stars align
I search beyond the words, wanting a sign
But lost inside your eyes
Lies become clearer to see
They tell a different story
So take the reins and don't let go
I want this pain to scar deep, for I know
All our past recieves healing, with memories concealing,
We cry to the light of the moon.
This night's become a wonderful haven
And in my heart, it's what I've craven.
Addicted to this sea.
I've even lost the need to breathe.
And it's out of my life, you're fading.
And it's the warmth of your arms I still desire.
Stuck all alone, I'm praying

Belly WarsIt was a costume party at night. Everyone was wearing their favorite costumes and having a blast. But no one was more excited and having more fun than this one girl in a midriff-baring costume.Belly Wars2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
This girl is named Veronica. She LOVED showing off her tummy to the world! Well, actually, she loved revealing it only because of her boyfriend. Her boyfriend had big, strong, warm hands. Whenever her tummy was cold, her boyfriend covered it with his hands and kept it warm. Her tummy was very sensitive to alot of stuff, especially long shirts, and he was the only one who held it right and made it comfortable. So, ever since they first met, she'd been having her belly uncovered everyday, just for her boyfriend to touch, hold, and feel. She did belly rolls for him and even pushed her tummy out to battle his hands into pushing it back in. She certainly loved having him around to hold her bare stomach nicely.
This time, at the Halloween party, she was walking by herself without her boyfriend by her

Julie was walking down the road on one of the hottest days of the year, talking about all things which came up in her mind with her good friend Chelsey. The two of them had been enjoying the summer and all of its spoils; sunbathing in bikinis, jogging in workout bras, going to the gym, buying all manner of short haltertops, just having fun. For the last few summers, the two 19 year olds had been wearing nothing but a wide and evergrowing array of belly-bearing outfits which fitted from just below the navel to just underneath their breasts, and today was by NO means an exception.
“Whew, I LOVE the summer time, but I can’t WAIT until THIS day is finished.” Julie, on this gruelingly hot summer day, wore a black and purple striped croptop which just managed to cover her bra. Her tight jeanshorts were beginning to stiffen from the accumulated sweat and were makin it a bit difficult for her to walk.

A Whiter Shade of Pale I went to Charonton to live with my Uncle Malcort when I was orphaned at the age of seven; Mother went mad and disembowelled Father with a pair of pruning shears before throwing herself into a bath-tub filled with live vipers---so as you can imagine, my state of mind was somewhat delicate...I have no doubt it was rather awkward for Malcort Craveloft, a life-long bachelor, to have to take in such a twitchy, neurotic youth, but he was my sole remaining relative above ground and vice-versa.A Whiter Shade of Pale4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Spread thy wings, soar ever higher
Thine enemy clasped within death's jaws
By sulfrous breath, sharp fangs and claws
A hide of gem-bright gleaming scales
Wings unfold like living sails
All heed to the mighty dragon's call
Before thy might, the world doth fall
Eyes filled with terror, they flee thy wrath
And e're to follow fear's dark path
A thousand years, mere blink of thine eye
Kings rise and fall as time flies by
Destroyer of empires past
Against you, no power is vast
Harbinger of death and raging war
Almighty, worshipped and abhorred
Yet slowly, thine strength begins to wane
Like blazing fire 'neath the rain
Alone, you lie within treasures won
Thy heart as dark as deadened sun
Shall they forget you, forsake their fear?
Leave you to die, abandoned here?
Cursed one, to fade from all memories
Vanished, thy pain to never ease
A world renewed, exchanged for the lost
Yet none alive know of the cost
They shall never hear the dragon's roar
Erased by time fore
Concave Belly Peril 3…….Although it only felt so faint upon her skin, a thinning wave of water rode up the sands of the beach on this clear, sunny day and graced her lower back and neck almost as if they were caressing hands. After a few seconds, Julie’s eyes fluttered open, and she slowly, sleepily stretched and looked around. Her ribs protruded as she sucked her stomach in slowly while she stretched. The brightly lit beach appeared to be empty, so she looked down to sit herself up properly. As she looked down, she saw that her belly was still sucked in deeply. “Odd,” she thought to herself. “It usually goes back to normal after I relax my stomach muscles.” Then, she noticed that she was in a bikini. And not in any normal bikini. It was that pink one which she bought for the sole reason to show herself off a bit at her birthday party and see if anyone might actually like her at all. It was odd, though. As much as she had wanted the guys to look at her the same wConcave Belly Peril 32 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Beware the darksome maid, Shavaughn,
Who stalks barefoot across the lawn
From her cold dark-veinéd marble tomb
To gnaw your soul and seal your doom...
She casts her spells of madness wild,

Whose long dark tresses and pale skin
Conceal the horrors that lurk within...
Her tainted lips part in such a smile
That would make Van Helsing run a mile--
O, linger not! Beware her eyes!
In love and dread her victim dies
As her impish laugh rings through the night
In macabre, wicked, pure delight...

Julie’s eyes squinted shut from being thrown out of her dream. Slowly, though, she opened them. She saw Chelsey peeking out of the crevice, saw the back of her white knotted bellyshirt, saw her dark blue miniskirt barely covering what was underneath, but…….How did they get in here?
“Chelsey? Umh.......” She slowly sat up and adjusted her small black and purple striped croptop, then lowered her tight jean shorts to a level which was comfortable to her. She always liked wearing them low. “Wh……. What happened? Where are we?”
Chelsey turned her head around, and smiled at her friend. “Oh, finally awake? Maybe you can tell me what you were dreaming about now, and I can tell you about how your moaning and stretching got me out of a close shave!”
Julie then recalled the moment which had knocked her out cold. She put her hand over her mouth and gasped. “The spiders! What ha

Maybe we fall because we know we can
And we stall when it comes to a helping hand.
Because we refuse to accept and to understand.
That a man would be willing to aid another man,
Without some sort of under hand, profitable plan.
Maybe we project our perceptions on to others.
Quotes that emerged and persevered by our mothers.
Home truths that we go on to eventually discover.
Making it the only way we can connect with each other.
Spurring us to find like minded friends, associates and lovers.
Maybe we lie because the truth is too bitter to bear.
We are inclined to believe that others do actually care.
And that they will only listen so that they are able to compare
Our circumstances, even though we know life is made to be unfair.
That is why when the mighty fall, we all avidly stand by and stare.
There are a lot of fine details forgotten in the final figure.
There are a lot of surreal strokes painted into this picture.
There are a lot of what if's and maybes to con

But this question has been bugging me as I, having been a fan of realism, am kind of stuck with realistic portraits and human figures albeit also appreciates abstract and photography. For me Realism is somewhere between the two. It is not realistic as photography but still more visually concrete than abstract. With this mindset, to be an artist, I acknowledge that I have a long way to go.
My boyfriend for me is an artist but his carefree life had allowed him to experience a lot more than what most of us perceive as an artist. If he is asked what he studied and will continue to study, he would say 'life'. He painted when he was a kid and held exhibits when he was 12. He is from Ca

Flames may burn creating light,
Yet shadows linger in the night.
If two were to become one what shall that be?
A new beginning or end of what is not to be.
Two opposites should not collide,
Formulating the next great tide.
If hot were to be cold, no one would be told;
For when there is grand change, the wind, it barely whispers to and fro;
Always there, always listening, but never communicating.
Confusion and disarrays are all you've created.
Thanks for my new enigma.
For once was sweet has turned bad;
My once white canvas stained red.

BLOOD ON THE BEACH...BLOOD ON THE BEACH...3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It was back around 1956 or so,
When an upcoming actress, Marlyn Devereaux,
Was shooting a film called "Beach Blonde Bambina"--
It sounds pretty cheesy, such crappy patina!
Marlyn was a hottie, with wavy hair golden,
Her lips full and luscious, her bosom upholden
By a fetching pink polka-dot torpedo bikini--
Marlyn thought it was rather too teeny!
The director yelled "ACTION!"--Marlyn skipped on the shore,
Where her co-star was waiting, handsome Robert Yore,
Leaning on a surfboard with a big stupid grin---
Just then something dreadful started to begin!
A huge slimy tentacle, massive and dark,
Shot out of the water as fast as a shark--
It wrapped around Robert and started to squeeze:
Yore tried to scream "HELP!" but he could barely wheeze!
Several more tentacles lashed through the air,
One grabbed Robert's head by his shock of black hair
And tore all the skin off his scalp and his face--
It was gruesome, blood splattered all over the place!

He would have enough magic for one strike, if that.
