Let's tear ourselves from the things that are holding us back. Let's paint our faces and hair in bright colors and crowd together until we're one giant throng of movement. Our hearts will not beat as one, but they will all beat.
Let's spread ourselves like disease. Let's separate our bodies from our minds. We'll all become things of energy and light while we break our beliefs and spit out our religions. Let's abandon rationality and thought and become animals of instinct.
Let's lose ourselves. Let's become someone else. In the time where we have no thoughts we will be people we want to be. We can be the sinners of good and those who live without fear. Let's splinter normality. Let's be angry and angsty and ecstatic with things we don't understand. Let's believe in something new and breathe something old. In every one of us lives something ugly, so let's let it loose.
Let's be. Let's not be. We're alive.

"Allen. Sorry. I shouldn't have did that...." He turned away from me and let me go. I looked at him and blushed.
"Wh-What?" I said. My voice became shakey but I held myself. Lavi looked at the door.
"Its against the Bookman rules.....to be in love with outsiders...I can't be attached to anyone. I'm nothing but an observer..." My heart was crushed. I couldn't reply in any way. He looked at me and his face seemed so sad. "I'm sorry. We can't...be together..."
"B-But can't you just...bend the rules?" Lavi shook his head. My heart pounded loudly. "Wait.....So I'm just an outsider to you? You.....don't care about me or something??" My eyes welded up with tears. I felt myself shaking. My palms were sweaty and I frowned at him.

Toriko was hurt again, too busy protecting Komatsu to worry about himself.
Mind clouded by guilt, Komatsu would plead temporary insanity via injury prone partner for what happened next; he bent his head over Toriko's left hand - still oozing blood in several places, two fingers broken - and pressed his lips to a shallow cut. When he realized (too late) what he had done and retreated, a heavy splash of red came away with him. His tongue flickered out instinctively and the rich flavor of copper flooded his mouth.

"You blacked out earlier. I thought you were either sick or dead! Gave me a scare there, Buddy." I looked at him then the blanket that covered me. It was too hot already for this. I jumped out of bed in a hurry to leave out the room. It felt so wrong being here, like I didn't belong. "Where ya goin', Bean Sprout?"
"My name is Allen!" It was irritating to hear that over and over. Lavi laughed at me. He stood up straight and opened the door.

I sighed deeply in aggravation that I slept so long. I walked around for a while and came across something i knew would happen.
It wasn't just around the corner that was easy to see. I saw Lavi and Kanda fighting each other with words, not weapons, thankfully. They were bickering and Lavi had blood on his forehead. My eyes widened with despair. I hear my name from time to time so i had a feeling it wa

The team was still too excited when lights out came around. Although it was cleared up of why the Announcer never called the battle, there was still a sense of confusion in the air as everyone enjoyed a late snack, a few of them conversing about how many REDs they killed or even talk about suing for negligence.
The Spycrab kept himself out of sight on the kitchen counter while the BLU Scout fixed himself a sandwich, occasionally switching his attention from his food to the blue crab hiding behind the flour tin. He didn't want to seem suspicious by retreating to his room for the night, although he was tired, he had plans to sneak by the Spycrab back to the RED Scout. He promised his counterpart that he was just holding his old friend for a day, and he was going to keep that promise.
Both the Spycrab and Scout's attention was grabbed when the Demoman - loudly- brought up the subject of the BLU Spy's precious yellow ribbon. The S

"Why the red face? You never have it that way around me..." His voice sounded lustful. I felt myself shivering. My mouth was dry and I couldn't say anything. He put his hand on my cheek, caressing it. "Its cute really..." My eyes widened and I looked at him with fear.
"K-Kand---" I was cut off by a kiss. Kanda held me down for a long time, forcing his tongue inside my mouth. I struggled for freedom, but I liked the feeling. I felt him breath on me still with our lips locked. Kanda broke apart and licked his lips. I coughed and looked down at the floor. It was dark, a carpet covered in our shadow. I wanted Lavi to save me. I couldn't depend on him though, I had to get out of there.

Holiday MemoriesIt was a simple white bow, the kind you stick on gifts to make them look fancier. Most people would toss it in the trash with all the rest of the gift wrappings. But this bow... he could never throw it away, even now. He looks at it now, turning it over in his hands, remembering how happy that gift made her. The gift he dressed up with this cheap paper ribbon, bought for $2 at the local drug store. He no longer had the gift; that would stay with her always. He wanted to remember her that day, and was compelled to put the bow in his pocket as she admired him for the love he gave to her.Holiday Memories4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

He put the bow on his desk and put his hand on her journal, the last words she would ever write. He flipped to that page and read it again. "Thank you" was all that it said, in deteriorated handwriting that stole everything away. He didn't want to remember what happe

Loki looks back at you and smirks. You step back, knowing what he is about to do. He turns back around, looks at the scepter and looks back at the man. Without warning he jabs the air, sending a bolt of blue light towards the man. The man and everyone standing near him are knocked to the ground. Some men on the other side of the room open fire. Loki leaps into the air and lands on one of the men, stabbing him in the chest. He then throws some small, silver daggers at the other men, injuring them. He continues to send bolts of energy towards his foes. You press your back against the cold wall as you watch Loki kick one of the men into the wall, knocking him unconscious. The room is now dark except for some flickering lights and sparks shooting from the equipment. Loki pauses, looking around at the damage he has caused. You stand there, stunned

"How about the sun roof?" you ask.
"That is a splendid idea." he grins.
You hold the steering wheel tight and reach for the button for the sun roof with your other hand. At this speed, any sudden movement would spin the car out of control. You quickly get the sun roof open and grasp the wheel again with both hands. The man crouches on his seat, looking around, contemplating about how to accomplish his plan.

Most of the neighbors have been asleep for a couple of hours at this point. Even the animals are quietly slumbering. You turn your headlights off as you pull into the driveway. All the windows in the house are dark. Of course everyone has gone to sleep already. The only "night owl" in the household is you. You gather your things on the passenger seat.

"I claim this side." he says casually, plopping down on the bed.
You couldn't believe this was happening. You were about to share a bed with an attractive stranger that you just met a few hours ago. You resolve to just go with the flow since exhaustion has finally caught up with you. You place your bag on the floor beside the bed and unzip it. Good thing you brought extra stuff.

The storms on Jotunheim were never-ending. They would go on for months, ravaging the land with ice and snow as sharp as knives. The winds were so cold the sweat on a man's skin would freeze instantly. But freezing sweat and storms didn't bother Thor. Jotunheim's worst blizzard wouldn't kill his determination, he would face it, head held high and push through the merciless winds.
But Thor wasn't in Jotunheim to test the blizzards and ice. He wasn't there for the Jotuns either. He sought for someone. Yet his eyes darted around suspiciously, this someone didn't want to be found so it seemed. And Thor knew him well enough to be sure an attack could come.
"Loki!" he shouted.
His words seemed to lose power as the winds raged around him. Nothing but a weak echo came back to him. A chill had filled his chest, one not caused by the cold around him though.
This was useless, Jotunheim was so vast, and he could barely see a few feet ahead through the

In the beginning, there was nothing. Nothing but eternal space and emptiness. A universe ready to sustain life and allow it to thrive. The silence was deafening, and yet, there was no one to hear it. No one alive.
Then came the thunderous roar of one being. One being that would become the ancestor of all men, gods and demons alike. But his hands and the hands of his children, Odin, Vili, and Vé, they fashioned nine realms or what we know as today as the universe.
The higher tier consisted of Asgard, the realm of the gods, Vanaheim, realm of the Vanir gods, Alfheim, realm of the light elves.
In the middle tier was Midgard, realm of the mortals, Jötunheim, the realm of the Ice Giants, and Svartalfheim, the realm of the Dark Elves.
In the lower tier, the tier forgotten by all mortals and not acknowledged by the gods of Asgard, was Nilfheim, the realm of ice and mist, Helhiem, the realm of the dead, and

Near the sidelines laid a battered and bloody Luke, who had stayed behind to fend off the oracle knights, Tear healing his wounds to the best of her abilities.

He just refused to acknowledge that it was actually happening, again. Asgard was supposed to finally be safe…. To be a haven from them. They weren't supposed to get to him there. He let out shaky breaths.
"Now, now… where did your pride go? There is no need to be afraid…. Not yet."
The Other's voice, he had learned to know it blindly once. There had been a day when they had taken him from Jotunheim. Then they had dripped a stinking acid in his open eyes. It had burned and burned and they hadn't allowed him to close his eyes again until his sight had been completely burned away. It had taken days to heal, weeks maybe, he couldn't tell light from dark that time. The memory made his heart pound again. The hopeless darkness, relying on just his other senses for what they were worth. He bit on his lip, never again. He wouldn't go through it

Loki threw the door to his room back in its hinges and pushed his back against it. His breath was rapid from running and adrenaline. He heard Sif's heels go by his room without slowing. Apparently she thought he had run elsewhere, to Thor's room perhaps. He let out the breath he hadn't realized he was holding and a wheeze of a laugh. Laughing at himself. He had run out of all things, ran away from a single person. It was idiotic, and downright sad for someone of his stature. You have no stature. His mind was swift to correct that thought. For a man that once had such stature then. He lowered his gaze from the ceiling to look out into his room. It was like Thor had said, nothing had been touched. Dust lay on things in a grey blanket, nothing had been touched, not even for a bit of cleaning. The covers of his bed still lay on a heap as he had left them when he had woken up from that restless nightmare that had become truth by the end of that day. L
