Once upon a time there was a great kingdom, and like all great kingdoms there was a king and a queen.
A king and queen that wanted a child so badly that when the queens womb remained empty for three summers and three winters they sought out a beautiful sorceress that resided in their court as a friend of the king.
She agreed and placed a spell not knowing that it would cost the king his wife and when the babe was born, and the price discovered, the king flew into a rage and chased the magical people from the land and convinced all he could of the evils magic brings.
One man he chased away took shelter in a small village and bred a child out of love and magic with a young milk maid that took him in and loved him dearly. however the man was forced to flee, and the milk maid, alone, bore and raised a magical boy with eyes like precious gems and the name of a great bird, a child with a great destiny, that fell and intertwined with that of the Once and Future King.

Rudolph shut his computer down and gathered his stuff. He was about middle height and nearly 56 years old. The hair on his head had started to thin out already.
Rudolph sighed. Another boring day at work done. I hope it doesnt take me too long to get home.
Every morning and every evening Rudolph had to take a forty minutes train trip to get to work or back home again. And even though he actually hated those trips, he would never think about moving into the city closer to work.
The small village he, and his wife Martha, lived in was a heaven of peace and calmness, where he could relax from his work. That was worth more than saving some time on traveling to work.
When he arrived at the train station, he noticed that a large crowd had gathered on the platform. Rudolph walked to an information desk and asked the lady what was going on.
Im sorry sir, but the train had an accident further down the railway. Luckily no one was hurt, but Im afraid
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

My fingers ran though his soft blonde hair as my legs surrounded his hips while he carried me up the stairs, our tongues still intertwined. I was suprised of how strong Seamus was, im bigger than him yet he still managed to carry the both of us up to my room. I drop down from his hips and release my mouth as he pushed me onto my bed jokingly and I giggle as I drag him towards me making him lean overtop of me kissing him, no fear, no crying, just pleasure. It was warm, him over top of me, his body pressed against mine, my blood rushing and skin tingling with excitement with every kiss.

It turns out I had been so tired I managed to sleep through until the next day only being woken up by Max Hordon Dan and Seamus's rumbling from the basement.
my stomach grumbled for food and I look down to see I was only in cookie monster boxers, I shuffled to my bags and picked out a decent shirt and pants befor going downstairs.
I met the guys in the kitchen while Max greeted me, Dan and Hordon talking about brown stuff and Seamus, leaning on the cabinet watching me. Of course I have seen them in pictures but in person Seamus's eyes lit off the room, as blue as a cloudless sky.
I look away from him and open the fridge to find it empty so I grabbed a pepsi.
"So where is the rooms?" Max announced a little too loud

I didn't sleep that night, my head spun and wouldn't slow down.
What was that? was he joking? was he serious? Seamus cant be gay. The sun rose and surrounded the room warming me, I rolled off the air mattress and proceeded to lay there until there was a knock on my door making me bound to my feet. The door swung open and the one I feared at that moment stood shirtless in the door way, revealing his pale chest with no sign of fat, yet no sign on abs either (sadly.) He smirked and slid over a plain black v-neck over himself,
"Jordan told my to bring you downstairs"
I nod with the image of his shaved chest still there, he leaned on the door watching.
I then stomped angrily towards him slamming the door making him fall backward,

I could hear his every heartbeat, every breath, I could feel his muscles tense, holding me tighter against his body, his lips hovered over me ear as he whispered something soft, it took me a few seconds to understand what he had said
I swallow as his fingers gripped tighter, He knew I was awake the whole time,
"what does he know?"
his voice was soothing I strangely felt relaxed,
he leaned in closer to my ear
"he doesn't need to know about this" he taunted as he bit my ear softly and seductively,
I pulled away and turned to face him, for once I wasn't speechless with questions, but with butterflies. His eyes held no specific colour in the darkness of the room, his lips didn't hold his normal smirk either, he still held his grip on me and I watched his eyes close as
Experience is Everything and NothingExperience is Everything and Nothing3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Everything that has happened or will happen was meant to happen;
However nothing was meant to last forever, even if it was intended to.
So live life like you meant to do everything that you did do or intend to do.
And don't worry if you or anyone else doesn't understand why everything happened.
Just be thankful that you lived long enough to experience it all.

Hours have passed and the sun continues to sink lower and lower before it will reach the western horizon. Anxiously waiting, I continue to watch Persephone as the light in her smile and the fluid bounce in her step seems to have vanished. Her harvesting rituals seem as if it is her first time encountering a newborn seed, as if she's never done this before. Countless times she even appeared to be distracted, as if something in the distance has caught her eye and she can't seem to bring herself back to earth. During one of these spells, she happened to cut her finger on a rose bush she had been tending to, something she has never done before.
Persephone has always been very careful and even graceful with her work. As any artist does, she takes her time to make sure that it is simply perfection. She would harvest all day and not have a speck of soil on her or her light yet modest outfit. But today, her flawless rosy hued pink skin was turning into a scarred and bloody me

In a flash of diamonds, I appeared distraught and defeated before my hero. Surprised at first but sensing my mood he sat on the edge of his bed and patted beside himself; I assumed he was inviting me to sit. Letting my body slump down onto the bed mere inches from Link I just looked into his eyes. Sadness was prevalent in my own. A deep sigh belonging to me fills the atmosphere as I'm not ready to even tell this boy of my failure today. It's just not in the nature of a demon lord to lose. Sulking I lean toward my company and gently lay my head on his shoulder. Looking down at my crippled form and hurt pride Link places his arms around me in comfort. I've never felt anything like this. The sympathy of others is normally not something I would enjoy indulging in, but this is different. Maybe my strong feelings for the sky child are what makes this so soothing; regardless I can honestly say I'm glad he is here with me.
Raising my arms to return his squeeze I see a flinch pass over his feat

I ran up to the kitchen cradling my face into my hands sitting on a bar stool trying to catch my breath.
"Don't think about it, don't think about him," I repeated to my self like a broken record. The movie was loud coming from downstairs and vibrated the floor beneath me and I decided to go upstairs and call spoon, when he didn't pick up I argued with myself to either text him or try to call again, or just lay there, which I did, until there was another knock on the door. I waited for the door to just to sweep open but when it didn't I called out

I hear him sigh so I look over not expecting what I saw, Seamus remained overtop of me, leaning over me, his breath was still heavy and he wasn't looking at me, I can still see blue eyes in the darkness of the room. He finally turned to me and met my stare, his eyes had no expression. we remained there just watching each other, listening to each others breathing while he loosened his grip on my arms, my heart slowed in pace, and I still had the fear and the urge to run but at the same time didn't want to. Seamus rolled to his side holding up his head with one hand is he getting comfortable in MY bed? He then leaned over and kissed me on my forehead gently, that was my limit, I got up and pointed my finger

His kiss was soft, slow, meaningful, you could taste the alcohol on his breath, his grip tightened on my sides and I began to feel uncomfortable pulling away.
he began to blush making me do the same as he watched me with no expression
"what's wrong?" he whispered
"how drunk are you?"
he laughed, inside I felt I was about to burst with happiness, but at the same time my head felt like it was about to burst aswell, I turned away from Seamus and towards the stairs
"im going to bed"
he grabbed me hand making me flinch
"I will to,"
instead of arguing I shook my hand free and continued up the stairs.
I woke up the next morning with my head pounding, I moaned and rolled over to see the time then almost fell off the bed seeing Seamus asleep beside me, my heart began to race as I

As soon as link had walked out the door to look for zelda, he turned his head to see ghirahim already dozing off.
Walking over the table, he saw a brown note, covered in Zelda's beautiful script handwriting.
How was your trip?
I'm really sorry but I had to go up to skyloft,
I'll be back soon, I promise.
Link let out a heavy sigh as he walked to one of the cupboards to look for the first aid.
He kneeled on the floor and started to crawl in, poking his head in, putting all the weight onto his hands. There wasn't much light shining in the cardboard and everything was like a dark blob, seeming to merge together. One hand fumbled around feeling for a wooden box. He found it and h

Kiwis could be heard over in the distance and prayed silently for them not to find him. Once they did, he wouldn't be able to say no to a game of hide and seek. The bushes surrounded him perfectly, creating a barrier like effect around him as they created a light whooshing sound.
His ear twitched as he listened closely but was surprised when he could hear nothing - no kiwis scuttling around or birds

Opening his eyes slowly and with a confused look on his face my hero looks directly up at me questioningly. First, I hand him the clothes I had cleaned for him, then I hand him the charcoal and paper I went on a quest for this earlier morning. With the clothing I get a grateful look, and for the other I get a raised eyebrow and misperception in return. Giggling a little I decide to explain, "I finally thought about it sky child, and with the absence of speech and all there is quite the communication barrier. Being as brilliant as I am I finally came up with a solution! You can write to me via the paper. Mind you, this will take a bit of effort on your end, but this way we can have two-way conversation instead of long monologues from myself. Though you might miss them at times, I assure you this will prove to be more fulfilling." Grinning wildly I sit down on the bedside waiting for Link to try it out. Looking down at the paper hard he seems to be unable to think of anything to say to m

I really couldn't tell you how long I had stayed after the night we finally held our first conversation with one another. I spent a long time after that night trying to find any solution to everything to make both the Skyloftians and demons happy and able to live with each other on the surface, but with the revival of someone as evil and heartless as Demise it was simply impossible. I don't know why Ghirahim was so bent on bringing him back anyway; he even seemed flabbergasted when Demise cast him aside like a piece of trash that fateful day. There was no way to remedy any of it really and guilt still floods my heart this very moment just contemplating how everything came to an abrupt end for us, and him. Let me start from the beginning though, I digress.
The night we were able to talk about the situation as it stood in honesty with each other I told Ghirahim that I needed release to fulfill my destiny as the Goddess's chosen hero. He didn't disagree with me for a moment, and I really

It was one of those hot, lazy summer days when you could do nothing but take a bath or lie in a hammock reading magazines. The only problem was, that there were no lakes nor oceans to bathe in, and all the magazines were either "not meant for children" or about cars. Really, the exciting prospect of spending a summer at Ace's uncle had turned out sour for the freckled boy and his baby brother Luffy.
Okay, maybe uncle wasn't the right word to describe the white haired man, since he had no blood-ties whatsoever to the boy. He only was a very good friend to his father, and often offered to take care of the boys when Garp had too much work to bury himself in. Pretty much like Luffy's uncle Shanks did. So these "brothers" had a big family, and at least the younger of them wasn't all that hesitant to include new cousins, brothers, aunts and grandparents.
And that hot summer day, the two boys were dangling their legs over the edge of the leather couch and sipped lemonade without any big inter

I had tried milling around the moderately sized room I was keeping this sky child locked away in to keep myself busy. I've done every task as important as ordering my troops to their next destination and as trivial as reading over old texts and prophecies that include the Goddess while waiting.

During his deep sleep I now decide to go through his things and find a few silly items; however, one in particular catches my interest. I find an envelope with no address with a letter inside.

As I lay here in fright
Pondering over this I wonder how I came like this
Sitting here scared over another dream
Haunted by memories not of my own

As "He" sits, waiting for me
And I will always resist his unspoken question
So I will try yet again to sleep
Though still expecting the nightmares
My mind becomes restless at why yet again
And I know I will not sleep tonight.

Without warning or hesitation, the Mormo lunged at us. We split like the red sea again, with me diving to the right into a pile of rotting, smelly wood. The invisibility cloak shrouded my body and confused her for a second, but she turned her attention elsewhere, to bear her teeth at a startled Ron.
"Stupefy!" he yelled, thrusting his wand at the ugly woman-creature. The red pulsing energy burst from the tip, knocking right into her stomach and sending her flying backwards.
Nico, from behind me, said, "Good shot!" He steadied himself from the broken remains of an old four-poster bed, and offered my headless body a hand up. I took it, also standing up to glare uneasily at the heap of broken pots that the Mormo had landed in. Hermione stood shakily, eyes never leaving the Mormo's frozen body.

Sitting down on the edge of the Wall that protects you from all danger, you wait for your friends to return. Your right ankle hurts a lot, the pain spreads through your leg; you think it’s a severe sprain. You sigh and look at the horizon, beyond the destroyed tower, to where you saw your squad leader for the last time. You close your eyes painfully and inspire deeply.
“[Name]”, says someone sitting next to you.
You find Reiner there, who has his entire right arm bandaged.
“How are you?”, you ask.
“Fine, but I’m feeling useless”.
“Does it hurt a lot?”
“Yes, but maybe you could do something about it”, he answers provocatively.
“Reiner, this is not the moment for messing around”.
“I know…", he says with a mysterious aura.
