"Oh, come on, Capsicle, didn't they have Halloween back in the 40s?"
"Of course they did. But.. not like this. Why do I have to wear it?"
"Cause you're the Star Spangled Man with a Plan and it's high time you wear the proper outfit for it. Now, come on. I had to pay a lot to get that made especially for you."
Tony grinned, relaxing back against the couch with a glass of scotch in his hand, just in some old black jeans of his and a white T-shirt, his arc reactor showing clearly through the thin fabric.
Steve looked like a tomato whole body practically red as he finally walked out of the bedroom. Dressed in a little blue top with no sleeves, the collar dipping down to show part of his chest with a few white stars on the top of the collar. The shirt was tucked into the red and white striped skirt that went to about an inch or two above his knees, white ankle socks on his feet under the blue heels. A little blue cap with a few white stars on it sat on his

"I would die for you"
But I couldn't imagine what you'd do
If I died for you
I would much rather live
Live to protect you
Live to see you smile
Live to be held in your arms
I will live
Even if I end up in a hospital bed
And the doctor tells me there is no chance
I will defy the odds
Even if all hope is gone
No matter how bad I want to give up
No matter how sweet death would feel
No matter how close to the edge I am
I will always be here for you
Smiling with you
And being held

A new mutant arrives at the institute and Logan can't tell who, but the kid reminds him of someone, and what happens when Laura/X-23 meets the mystery mutant?
Aburameclanhead: So it looks like you all get the honor of viewing my first fanfic. I'll be introducing an oc of mine paired with a personal favorite character, X-23. Slight Storm/Wolverine. Maybe others.

Into Eternity: Loki-x-Reader
It was nearing midnight, but you had no intention of going to sleep. You had wandered earlier that evening from the safety of your house- as you had done every night for several months- and gone to the one place where you knew you could enjoy some peace and quiet: the glade.
The glade was a secluded park with countless trees, a bench, and a small path of water that carved its way freely across the land. The park wasn't a secret by any means, but it was a place where you could go when you needed to think without the rest of life’s interruptions. A place where silence always ran supreme and all noise seemed to fade out of existence. It was your favorite spot, and you had been sitting on the lone bench for most of the night.
Wearily, you lifted your red-rimmed eyes to the heavens above you and looked to the moon. You stared at its simplistic beauty as if entranced, taking in the silvery rays with someth

A man sits alone at a bar, nursing a drink, as patrons walk in and out of it.
Though he is alone, it's as if he is surrounded by memories of days when he felt alive.
"When was it?" He thought to himself.
The Limiter had broken long ago...the Dragon rampaged...war upon war upon war had been waged.
The face of the man he hated, danced in a distant memory before his eyes.
The man who started everything.
"That Man...who could forget him?"
"You say something, son?" A crusty old bartender, washing his glasses looked at the stranger with long grey hair tied in back, and busted headguard plate that once said "Rock You" now barely bolted together.
Even though his hair had turned a ghostly white...he didn't look a day older than 25.
"Nothing. Just remembering something..."
Though in appearance to anyone else, it looked as though an old man was talking to a younger man nursing a drink...but in reality it was the reverse.

I was thinking of what I was gonna do because I keep having these crazy-love dreams about Kitty and they just wouldn't stop! I was walking down the hallway of the Xavier Institute that went to my room, and I couldn't stop arguing with myself if I should tell Kitty I love her and tell her all about these crazy dreams I'm having. But then I also couldn't stop thinking about if her reaction would be good or bad, because if their bad then she'll probably go and tell all her friends and they'll all make fun of me, like any other kid would. I was just about to turn the knob on the door to my room, and stopped. I turned around to face the other side of the hall and there was the door to Kitty's room, I walked over, raised

a million lives stretched from end to end below.
she landed underneath a lofty fig tree.
by a river she lay and cried.
she cried, but there were no ears
to hear her, only the darkness to keep her company.
she was the only thing
besides the tree.
so she closed her eyes and remembered
her life before her birth.
and warmth again,
but this time closer.
she opened her eyes
and saw a light unseen before.
her nuewfound landscape was on fire.
everything burned and the smoke rose,
and formed an ashen face above the flames.
and a voice whispered...
"someday your love will be found."
and the smoke cleared,
then the fire, and the light
and the child cried even harder than before,
because, now knowing what
the light was like, she
felt even more alone
without the warmth that now seemed
so far away.

Good days give way to rain, and soon,
I will run out of stories to tell.
When from the depths of slumber you wake from my bed
And I point to the horizon, I pray
That you remember the moment that you and I first kissed
The time when a great warmth shone over the gloomy air
And a ray of hope shot through existence
As the earth and the sky met.
When I tucked you in the night before, recall
The sight of the city skyline at dawn,
When twilight would give way to certainty
And enveloped all in warmth.
But hold your breath and let me kiss you,
Sleep a moment longer for I have no stories to tell.
That while I trace your brow, know that
I am touching the strands of your dreams.
When I watch you sleep, I am keeping away
The nearing shadows.
For though I no longer have any stories
- all my stories are about us, now -
The world still holds the tales I have yet to tell.
Lutecest - Self InvolvedThey always said he was “self-involved”, and he was inclined to concede to it. It was the truth, after all. He'd tried multiple times to strike up meaningful relationships with others, but in the end, none of them lasted because none of them understood him, his thoughts, his theories, his soul, for goodness' sakes. But it didn't bother him, so there was no reason it ought to bother anyone else.Lutecest - Self Involved2 years ago in Romance More Like This
He spent his time working. It was what he was good at. Some would say he was the best in his field. The ones who wouldn't say so were just stubborn idiots, because anybody could see he was years ahead of the game. His peers had nothing to say of his genius, because he had no peers, no equals. Most of the time he worked alone, because otherwise he spent much of his valuable time attempting to teach his colleagues the finer details of his theories, which he thought was probably much like trying to train monkeys to read, an endeavor he never thought very highly of to begin with.

Lucy swore she was never going to get used to it. Whether it was the excited squeals from Mira every time she and Natsu would walk into the guild, the teasing looks from Levy, or the shiver that would sweep down her spine when he randomly took her hand in his. She was never going to get used to it.
But right now, it was Mira's squealing that was causing her to flinch and reconsider entering the guild today. Maybe she should just stay home for a few days, relax, read a few books, and let all this "Natsu and Lucy" stuff blow over. Although if she knew her guild mates as well as she thought she did, it wouldn't blow over for a long long time.
Their Dragon Slayer had finally found a girl, and they all seemed ecstatic.

Tony wouldn't quit poking your side during the Hunger Games, it was getting really annoying.
Hallway through, Tony poked you a bit to hard, you had finally had enough.
Taking the buttered popcorn from Clint's lap, you lifted it up and poured it on Tony's head.
Every one watched as Tony let out an animal call of some sort before he tackled you onto the ground and stuffed popcorn down your shirt. Laughter was heard as you two rolled around on the floor, yelling and stuffing popcorn into each others clothes.
Steve grabbed Tony by the back of the shirt and pulled him apart, only to be doused by an open pop can.

“Yeah, I guess you’re right.” He gazed upwards to find a girl there, hanging from one of the rafters and staring curiously at him from her place. She wasn’t young enough to be a child, but definitely wasn’t old enough to be an adult. She was in between. A teenager.
“Then why are you still here? You’ve been following me for hours.” Bruce questioned, and she made a sound of disapproval, shifting on the heavy steel bars that held her up.
