For very long and painful years, the Sun Kingdom and the Moon Empire had been in constant war. The main reasons that caused the war were unknown to the citizens of each kingdom, which made it hard to understand how two allies became enemies overnight.
The consequences of the ongoing war had taken its toll on each country, although the most affected one had been the Sun Kingdom. Maybe it was because the Moon Empire's army was more prepared and skilled, or maybe it had to do with the fact that the King of the Sun Kingdom was less strict than the King of the Moon Empire; either way, the once mighty Sun Kingdom was left almost in ruins.
Many citizens had been killed over the years, the destruction of their cities had been inevitable, and now their food was scarce and there was not enough money to sustain the people.
Nobody knew the Sun Kingdom's current situation better than Prince Ichigo Kurosaki, future ruler of said nation. He was extremely
Femlock - LateWhen Joan's microbiology lab finally ended at six o'clock on Friday evening, she bundled up in her hand-knitted scarf, fleece gloves, felt hat, and pea coat before braving the walk back to her apartment in the freezing winter weather. The distance between the biology building and the dormitories was tolerable on most days, but when any exposed flesh turned bright red before she reached the hall, Joan desperately wished the walk was shorter. When she reached the building, Joan did not remove any of her layers of clothing, and instead walked straight up the two flights of stairs to her floor.Femlock - Late3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
When she opened the door to her room, expecting welcoming warmth, she gasped in shock.
"Sheryl! It's freezing in here!"
The one window in the room was pushed as wide open as it could go, allowing all the cold winter air inside. Sheryl Holmes sat on the windowsill, seeming to be completely unaffected by the temperature as she r

"It all started here." Ed explained; the ruins of our old house in front of us. "There was the main room, our room, the kitchen, the basement, the memories; it sure does bring me back." Ed let out a small laugh, walking across where every room roughly was.
"I'm surprised there's still some ashes left and that they all haven't been blow away." I chuckled, scratching the back of my head; glass shattering from underneath Ed's left foot as he tread forward a step. Brother straight away peered down at the floor where the noise had come from. He crouched down and digged in the pile of rubble, he was standing on and pulled out a dusty cracked, wooden photo frame, which had a photo still in it. He shook the ashes out the cracked photo frame before lifting it up to show me.
"Al remember this photo? I'm surprised it's still in good condition." He said, facing it towards me. I stepped closer to him and glanced at the photo. It was a photo of us as young boys with mother, mum held

for he doesn’t know the meaning

The red dress you love to wear
that’s stained from wine and beer
but still carries so much meaning
for who could find a second red dress
Don’t go out on your red dress

A red dress for when you dance.
A red dress for when you cry.
A red dress for when you need it.
A red dress for when you care too much.
Don’t put on your red dress for him darling
he doesn’t care for the meaning.
Put it away in the closet, and rarely wear
for he doesn’t deserve your dear red dress.

The skies will shift into darkness long before the moon comes up to greet me.
I can remember the day, two years back, when she looked at me, and her eyes did all the talking.
And I knew, that mine would never see you again.
It rained that night but I think the weather was clear.
I didn't even cry for you.
I didn't even cry.
Now, I'm climbing 6 feet under to be with you but you don't even know I'm here.

I can't find her. The park is full of children - too full. Shrieks bleed with laughter, buried under the heavy pounding near my temples. Children push against me, protesting as I rush by. Heads raise as nearby adults track me with wary eyes. They see a frantic parent seeking her child, but no amount of sympathy inspires them to do more. The sharp tang of fear burns; no matter how quick I am or how many times I search the colorful maze of jungle gyms, I can't find her.
It's faster to work around the crowd but now the trees block my path. Shadows peek from behind sprawling trees, giggling at my misfortune. It's hard to remember if the girl's voice was panicked when she called for me or if I had imagined it. Was I wrong?
A familiar sound stops me. The giggles I hear belong to a wild blonde who waves to me

You sat outside, munching on a red apple as you basked in the sun's glory. It was a bright, beautiful day, and everyone decided to seize the opportunity. Even you decided to go outside for a change.
You were on a bench in just the right place to see all the commotion spurring at the school. You saw Eren and Jean bickering as usual, Christa and Ymir chatting underneath the shade of a tree, and Annie, Berholdt, and Reiner playing basketball with some others.
There was someone missing.
Was it Mikasa? No.. You just saw her drag Eren away from Jean. Sasha and Connie? Nope. Marco? You had just spotted him with Jean a moment ago. Your (e/c) eyes surveyed the campus grounds to seek who was missing.
You pushed up your glasses up your nose, recalling the name. In fact, you don't know how you missed him in the first place.
No doubt, you had it bad for Armin. You were infatuated with him since the beginning of the school year

Un réveil sous de âpres céphalées
A déchoir dans les étreintes du lit
Et mon canal jugulaire annelé
Sous pression repeint ma monochromie
Tantôt planté dans la catalepsie
A plastifier ma face, sous Photoshop
Gommer le khôl de mes pores vieillis
Ramper jusqu'à la douche en auto-stop

Puis m'abandonner, les songes frivoles
Sous une acide pluie de psychotropes
Les artères cinglées d'extrasystoles
Et j'abreuve le vide en éthanol
La conscience sous masque oxygéné
D'un lit de mort dont j'ai le monopole
Par alcool, coeur et corps anesthésier

Alfred F. Jones, Mathias Kohler, Gilbert Beilschmidt and Gilbert's girlfriend Elizabeta Héderváry were hanging out in Alfred's basement. At this moment Alfred was sitting with his elbows on his knees rubbing his temples at something idiotic that Elizabeta had just said. The aforementioned girl had her arms crossed and was staring at him.
"I'm waiting." She said.
"Forget it." Alfred told her.
Mathias gave his friend an irritated look, "Just say it and she'll go home." He said.
"Fine." Alfred said, defeated and then forced himself to say, "You're right Elizabeta, the Fonz could beat up Bruce Lee."
He cringed as the words left his lips.
"Thank you." Elizabeta said with a satisfied smirk, "Now Gilbert, call me tonight at eight o'clock."
"But that's when 'Chico and the Man' is on!" Gilbert exclaimed.

The sun had just left the sky and the city lights were one by one being lit. A combination of a light shade of blue, yellow and pink were painting the twilight sky. Under that very sky, sitting on a bench, were two teens with brown hair.
On one side, Black was looking at his phone. He was wearing a red shirt with a hood and a thin, black jacket and a pair of jeans with his usual sport shoes. His hair – free from his usual hat – was occasionally being blown gently by the wind.
On the other side, White was drinking her Poke-Cola that they picked up from a stand earlier that day. Wearing a long-sleeved black shirt, a purple jacket wit

Vignette One - Floating
He floated near the ceiling, up in the front right corner of the classroom. Looking down, the six year old boy could see the top of his teacher's head and the faces of his classmates. Further down the row closest to the door he saw himself watching and listening to the teacher. The boy felt like Superman since he could now fly.
He would often imagine leaving his body during times of increased stress, caused in part by the teacher herself. She wasn't exactly a mean woman, but had a harsh manner that frightened him. At home in the mornings he would sometimes become nauseous from the dread at the thought of going to school. This was made worse by the apprehension he felt with the anticipation of trying to interact with his classmates. He would continue to have a knot in his stomach every morning before school for the next twelve years.

Review of Chapter Six
By Stephenie Meyer
So after many long days of keeping this thing as far from my physical person as possible, I must return to complete my duty. What is my duty you ask? Killing myself very slowly in the worst possible way ever. So, in order to do this task, I grab Sheepie and the copy of Twilight I borrowed from the bookstore with no intention of returning.
