Maizy still seemed a bit down about Maroon for a few days, but she was the sort of person who would smile and tell jokes no matter how miserable she felt inside. Me and Violet were doing our best to keep her mind off it. Violet was going for the ‘lots of hugs’ approach, whereas I was going for the more practical route of reminding her that her education was important.
Whilst on break one day we had an unusual visitor at the table we usually sit at
“Hey girls!” It was Noire. She sat down next to me, with Maizy and Violet opposite me.
“Hey Noire… How’s it going?” Maizy said uncertainly. In truth, we were all a little afraid of Noire. When we were younger, this tall, strong beast of a girl used to give us a hard time. Since high school, she seemed to have found better things to do than bully the quiet girls, but we still felt a little jumpy around her.
“Alright, as you all know its Halloween coming soon.” She was lo

The early autumn light drifted in through the gap in the curtains, shining straight over Tony's eyes. He groaned loudly and grabbed a pillow to cover his face. Tony Stark didn't like to be woken up by the sun; it meant it was early morning with how it was coming through the curtains. Wait a second, Tony removed the pillow from his head and opened one eye slowly. He was in his room? Still he was wearing the white grease stained sweat shirt and jeans from last night but how did he get from his workshop up here?
"Jarvis?" Tony groaned as he sat up in bed, he rubbed his eyes with the back off his hand and yawned heavily. What time as it? How did I get up here? Where only a few things buzzing through Tony's brain right now.

I guess I never did realize it.
You have always been there for me,
Like a loyal knight serving his queen.
You befriended me,
When I felt
That I was all alone.
And helped me stay alive.
You supported me,
When I thought and believed
That I was no good.
And train with me to gain strength.
You gave me faith,
When I was given a new home,
That I did not think that I deserved.
And never forgot the bond we forged.
You risked your life for me,
When mine was about to be declared over.
That moment when I thought "This is it,"
You caught me and carried me to safety.
I owe my life to you,
In so many different ways.
Without you I would not be here,
Telling you all this.
Despite our social standings,
You will always have a place
In this noble heart of mine
That can never be forgotten.
You are my knight,
One who has devoted his heart and soul,
To the queen he loves,
And will stay strong to keep her safe.
Right now the world does not know,
About the feelings between us.

One day Sandra Collins, Sandy to her friends, was waiting out by a bus stop on a fine summer day. Her curly sand colored hair rested on her shoulders as her hazel eyes stared to the sky, watching the clouds go by as she waited for her friends to arrive so they could go to the mall. She heard the bus pull up and it stopped right by the stop and the doors opened with a hiss. Sandy waved as her friend Stacy walked out dressed in a light blue tank top and shorts and had medium black hair. She smiled as she hopped off. Sandy crossed her arms. You know how long Ive been waiting? Stacy looked to her. Sorry, I got held up in some chores I had to do. Sandy only smiled. Well at least youre here now. The next ones off the bus were two girls with brown hair, one short with a neon pink streak going on the left side and one with long hair tied in a pony tail. Moniq

"What exactly is this master - servant thing?" Miki asked as she took a bite on her strawberry cake. Miki has now calmed down finding out her mom knew the man. "First of all before I answer your question, let me introduce to you the your servant. The King of Uruk, Gilgamesh." her mother introduced,
"He has changed a lot... Especially his attitude."
"Why? What was his personality before?" Miki asked. Nadeshiko giggled, "Well, back then he was arrogant and prideful. But after being my servant, he showed respect and became friendly."
"Now time to get serious. Miki, you're involved in an odd game. A game named 'The Holy Grail War'. It is a battle between 7 masters with their servants. That mark on your hand is a proof of you being a master. Once in every 10 years, 7 masters are chosen. Each is given a servant and the fight starts. As long as you have that mark, you can control your servant." Nadeshiko explained

My NatureI wasn't looking for a companion,My Nature3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was only walking by.
I stopped because you were like me,
I only found you by accident.
Now I wouldn't call you a pet,
Nor would I call you a prisoner.
You chose to stay here with me,
You're the one who followed me.
It is my nature to roam,
To leave and return at will.
Just think of me as a bird,
One that refuses to be caged.
But I always return, do I not?
So why are you so angry with me?
I didn't tell you where I was going,
For I did not know myself.
I never asked you to be with me,
That was something you decided on your own.
You can try to change me,
Reform the very existence of my soul.
My nature will never be altered.
It is who I am,
Who I will be.
And nothing can ever change that.

Please welcome Lyle Kersten to the studio with us today!
Ah, good evening ! "Gothic radio", seriously ?
Could you tell me a bit more about yourself? Maybe your age?
My age is a Tremere secret, little girl, but you can count a few centuries... Other than that, I am the city's teacher to those of my particular "species" of vampires.
Really? That's quite amazing!
Not as much Corinna would like me to be. She would like some guidance and paternalist approval, with a pat on the head and a "good job", yet I just leave her study on her own. As "CEO" of my Clan, the best I do is to delegate and leave my apprentices work on what they want to without stepping in.
NOW! Let us head to the interesting stuff, shall we?
Sure thing, whose blood I am to steal into the night ?

I wish I could say I remember the good times of my childhood… but we Bejemi have such long lifelines that reminiscing on the past is nearly impossible. Let me explain…
Because of the gems that our bodies obtain as we grow, our lives carve themselves into our flesh… quite literally. At birth, a Bejemi has a clear stone – one that has no specific shape, no color and no value. Some of the people sadly mistake it for Glass, which became one of the reasons for my misery. As we age from childhood into teenagers, our gems harden and begin to show the colors that will seal us for the rest of our lives… or so I thought.
Let me explain our caste system a bit more. The lowest of the Houses is the one of Glass, and those who live there are the most mistreated of the lot. As the stone holds very little value to most merchants, they treat Glass like the sand from which it came. Those poor souls are forced to live like slaves, trea

Genre: Adventure/Angst/et cetera
Summary: A re-telling of the game with a female Cloud. This is only a small sample of a few scenes from the first two chapters. I'm looking for some feedback about whether I should post it as I go or wait until I'm finished and have re-written it a bit to lessen its dependence on the game. (The dependence will undoubtedly lessen on its own once there are more party members.)

Her heart was pounding, she couldnt catch her breath, her arm and back hurt so much, she wouldnt make it in time
She dropped to the ground with the command, covering her head without a sound. Never whimper, dont breathe, they find you that way.
The rat-tat-tat of gunfire rent the air, slicing the silence with the howls of the fallen.
She remained crouched, until she was yanked upwards by her arm. Ashamed, she finally looked up into the face of her savior. His eyes were on the several slashes that adorned her arms, and he cursed at the deep claw marks on her back.
His eyes were accusatory, but he didnt say a word, instead tore a piece of his black shirt for a bandage.
She didnt say anything to his silent questions. She knew it wasnt safe to go beyond the school walls at dusk, not even for food. Swaying on her feet, she felt something warm dribbling down her back. Turning her head, she could see blood hitting the concrete be

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e

Well, I was a woman, at least for the next few hours. Being born as both opened up all sorts of options. I felt a small smile play over my lips at my crazy internal dialogue. I suppose I am a tad crazy, but it makes life more interesting. I leaned on the bar and smiled down at the bartender. Being six foot normally (me, normal, ha!) and being well over six foot in my favorite boots, I saw a good deal of scalps and bewildered looks.
White Russian, please. I ask, flashing a smile I knew made my mismatched eyes glint manically. AH, good times. I sip my Russian treat as I watch a tall, slender, decidedly bored looking Asian man dance on stage. Dont get me wrong, the boy knew how to dance and dance well. But the deadpan
