Blood BrothersBrookie always holds my hand when we cross the street. She's never given a reason for it, she just does it. It's become this unspoken rule with us that whenever we cross the street together, she slips her hand in mine and I lace my fingers through hers and we walk hand-in-hand until we reach the other side and she drops her hand and we both wipe our palms on our jeans. Brookie's a little scared of crossing the street. Her poppa died in a car crash when we were six. He was a pedestrian. She's never gotten over it.Blood Brothers3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Brookie is my best friend going on sixteen years now, which is pretty impressive considering we're both sixteen. We don't have some cute little story about how we were born in the same hospital on the same day or about how our mothers were best friends long before they were pregnant with us and somehow passed on that bond while we were still in utero. No, Brookie and I met the same way ever

We were walking through the jungle. And came upon a vast clearing. 60 feet across. Fearing the dangers of the dark jungle, I decided to lead the team into the clearing to make our camp. We reached the center and began to pitch our tents. Mind you it was pitch black, but for our lanterns. Dead of night with barely a sliver of moon.
Never truly relaxed, I still felt a certain degree of reassurance. I felt this place would be safe. It wasn't until we got the fire going that I felt something watching us. I kept stealing glances into the murky darkness of the jungle that surrounded us. Under our chatter and the clatter of pots, I could hear a dark murmuring. As the meal came to a close, I put my back to the fire. When my colleagues asked why, I bluffed them. I told them my back was cold and I wished to warm it be

I'm glad I threw away my emotions, or else I would be crying. ''THER SHE IS GUARDS, AFTER HER!'' My fathers guards screeched. I scrambled and grabbed Repix's hand, dragging him with me.

A/N: I dont own Star Trek or Twilight. Oh, and in the 24th Century all data on the Twilight movies have been lost so all the Twitards have to go on is the book series. As you can see, that leads to complications.
Data was on his way to the bridge when he bumped into a young woman. He stopped to see if the young woman was okay.
Are you all right? he asked.
The lady looked into his eyes with delight.
Golden eyes? she asked.
I am Lt. Commander-, Data began.
The woman continued inspecting him and interrupted Data before he could finish his sentence.
Sparkly skin that feels cold. Youre Edward Cullen! the woman exclaimed.
Data was confused, not knowing who this Edward Cullen was.
I am afraid that my name is Data, and I have no knowledge of an Edward Cullen.
Unfortunately, the young lady was not listening to him.

Of course, it had to be frogs. Serena stepped over them as best she could, but they were everywhere. It wasn't the kind of thing you expected to see in smallish town America. One or two, maybe. Any more than that and you're wading into witch burning territory.
Serena really didn't want to wade into witch burning territory.
“What seems to be the problem?” Serena asked, “Aside from the frogs.”
Mrs. Caprica wrung her hands---Serena had never actually seen anyone do that. Truth be told, she'd rather not see it again. The woman had probably been wound too tightly even before any of this happened.
“We just wanted a baby,” she said.
“And you tried to invoke...”
“Heqet,” she said, “She's Egyptian. Ancient Egyptian, I mean.”
“I know who she is,” Serena said, as gently as she could. The frogs were staring a little too intently.

Robin was nervous as Chrom led her into his chambers. Only a few hours ago they were announced husband and wife. Everything was happening so quickly, but she knew that she couldn’t delay what would have to happen before they would be called back to the battlefield once more to protect the citizens of Ylisse. The tactician looked over at Chrom; she had grown to love Ylisse as much as he and she would die for the country to have its peace if necessary.
She could recall the event that happened after their wedding. Chrom had led Robin to a balcony where down below revealed the citizens all staring up at them with joyous expressions.
“Queen Robin!” They shouted with love, it stunned Robin. The title of queen had been bestowed upon her the moment she began walking down the aisle. Chrom put an arm around her waist, pulling her closer to him. A blush spread across her cheeks as he smiled handsomely to her.

In a world where everyone has a unique ability, one that defines them and shapes their image towards others, to have no power is strange and frowned upon. In other words, those who are normal are seen as the freaks of society.
The majority of people realise their ability at age five, yet I was ten years old and still nothing. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't figure out my powers, if I had any at all. It was pure gold for the other children; they were vultures just waiting for an opportunity to make someone else inferior to them.
I had only just turned ten when it happened. I was enjoying my time alone during the morning break, even though humans are social I knew my place wasn't among them. As usual, the local kids had found my hiding place among the trees in the school grounds and decided it was about time for them to feel superior again. I froze as the footsteps slowly became louder and quicker, how many were they this time? There were too many
The IntrudersIt enters your mind; not agressive at firstThe Intruders3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You think about it once or twice a week, not for long
You distract yourself easily.
It becomes more agressive with time
It starts a war inside your head
You against the intruders
You're still strong and doesn't give in to them.
The intruders attack you with their heavy artillery
Showing you unpleasant images undermining your defenses...triggering you
It weakens you...you think about it more each day
The intruders grow stronger
You can't barely manage to fight them
But still in the faint hope they go away
The intruders become parasites
Draining you...consuming you
You don't think about anything else
You can't focus
You wish not to wake up until it disappears on their own
But you can't (you have a job you can't afford to lose)
After a while you can't sleep properly because you have nightmares about it
You wake up trembling...with those images passing in front of your eyes
You have no peace...sleepin

Art is the tears of its creator
A stream of relentless sorrows
Of dark and tortured colors
Poured upon open canvas
Art is the smile of its maker
Mouth curved in a happy grin
Ideas and creativity
Spilling forth in all shades
Art is the love of its composer
The key to life’s beauty
Passion and love
Bleeding onto paper
Art is the anger of its constructor
Through scorn and pain
Bitterness and contempt
Terrifying beauty is formed
Art is the soul of the artist
Laughter and tears
Frowns and smiles
Pulled from the deepest part of our hearts
Art is whatever we want it to be

If I had wings
Then I would fly up high
If I had wings
If I had roots
I would stand and not be moved
If I had roots
If I had wings
I would soar and wheel and fly
In the sky
But I don't have wings
And I never will
So I will never fly so high
I can touch the sky
If I had roots
I would never fall
To the ground
But I don't have roots
And I never will
So will I never stand
And not be moved
Can I fly
Without my wings
Can I stand
Or maybe no
But I'm going to try
I don't have wings
But I will fly high
And I don't have roots
But I will stand strong
Who made the rule
That you need wings
Or that roots
Are needed to stand
So watch me fly
See me stand firm
Watch me soar
See me hold fast
Watch me fly

I’m not obsessed with death it’s just that it’s inevitable
Now I sit here wondering, if I were to breathe my final breath, tonight
Have I left any impact? Are my words, writings and actions, memorable or forgettable?
If my heart were to stop and never beat again, would you keep me in your mind?
And if so, how long will I stay there?
An hour, a week, a month, a year?
Or maybe longer if somehow possible, how would you think of me and where
When you saw a pencil and notepad, or would the memory of me drift away like a stray feather
Would you think of me by hearing the word sarcastic
Would you think of me as a calm, composed soul, or random and erratic
Would I be thought of as a fool, an enemy; or a friend and fantastic
Am I influential or unimportant?
Poetic and lyrical, or a wannabe that’s simply not memorable
A key part of your life or am I a dime a dozen?
And it’s not like I’m obsessed with death……

"You heard wrong." Nico stated as his eyes darted around, seeking escape.
"Yeah... okay, that's why your eyes are widened in alarm? C'mon, tell me, we're friends." Percy pestered, trying to get the son of Hades to look at him. Nico tried to find a distraction, trying to stop the completely oblivious male next to him from getting him to confess. Sadly, there was nothing. Nico started thinking if he should just run, the Hades cabin isn't that far, but wouldn't that raise suspicion...?
While the son of Hades was having a conversation with himself, Percy stared at him, contemplating whether to splash him with water until he says who it is or just drop the subject. He then realized why Nico is so nervous and remembered what Piper told him. Percy sighed, trying to find the correct words to say.

You must stay calm,
and let your fears wave away.
Like the gentle pull of the ocean.
They look down on you with slender eyes.
Judging your every breath.
As you shallowly take in your gasps,
like quick streams of water rushing down a steep hill.
When speaking to dragons...
You must be brave.
Act with confidence that your words speak well,
and go without vexation or indignation
For a wrong word could mean termination.
They will listen to what you have to say
with the ears of a thousand mocking birds.
Until of course you speak astray,
and the rest is left to their flaming breath
When listening to dragons...
You must behave.
Allow them their prudence and wisdom,
for dragons are the perfect beings.
And they know all.
Why do you wish, oh young one, to consult the dragons?
Is it because your lost is a world without paths?
A world so dark and without any maps?
Does the life you live serve you no happiness?
Is it your own kind to blame?

He was wearing what looked like a futuristic army getup and had what seemed to be a Covenant carbine on his back and the hilt of an energy sword on his thigh.
