What you see,
Although you may indeed,
Choose not to believe
I am a fabrication,
Built to make you smile,
So you don't know that I lie
I am not,
As strong as I seem,
And it is not laughter,
That in my eyes gleams
I am a tale of woe,
And one of sorrow,
So weak that I can't lead,
I can only follow
I am not as whole,
On the inside as out,
I am full of misery,
And so full of doubt
I am nothing more than illusion,
A master of it, I am,
I hope that you don't notice,
I don't expect you to understand
Pieces, big ones and small,
Force me to my knees,
Again and again,
Force me to crawl
Lurk underneath my surface,
Making me feel incomplete,
Making me feel worthless
The silver sheen which covers,
Hides my secrets within,
Keeps from you my shame,
Keeps from you my sin
But, if you look closer,
And come nearer,
You will find I am nothing more,
Than a stained and broken mirror

dreamer girls with misproportionate promises
and lingering whispers,
who walk like angels, lost, and trying
to find a way back home;
whose hearts bleed abnormally loud
and resonant- those girls with
shadows like ghosts [dead and haunting],
that make them a flavor
to taint your tongue.
if you listen close, you can hear the
unraveling words that once knit the hollow space
between their bones,
you can hear their shallow sighs like
sun sets for a final time.
you can hear their ticking time bomb lungs
and you can touch their secrets, because they
wear them on their skin. not like wounds,
more like sun kisses or wispy tattoos
ingrained into who they are; you won't know
what they mean until you connect the dots
and find answers in their questioning stares.
they'd like to remain something unknown, because
they've identified the world as a disease- vile and
insidious, with the capability of sinking
underneath your flesh and changing who you are.

She turned on her side and readjusted her pillows for what was probably the hundredth that night. As weary as she was, sleep should have been an easy task. Unfortunately her mind did not want to cooperate with what her body was demanding. Her mind wanted to think about Earth and all the horrors taking place there, about Kaiden and the angry bruises on his face, about Palaven and about Garrus. She hoped her turian friend was alive and well. Shepard uttered a dejected sigh and pulled herself off the mattress. She arched her back, stretching the sore muscles on her lithe frame that protested against the notion of having to do more work. Perhaps a stroll around the Normandy would ease her mind. Shepard stepped into her slippers and made for the elevator.
The CIC had been eerily quit even if the hour was late. The silence a reminder of when the Collector's had abducted her crew. Shepard chased away the memories of the Collector base. She did not need another horrible thing to dwell on. The

Liara's Story Chapter 1
This is fanfic, I own nothing, and know nothing. Characters in the story belong to Bioware and all that legal stuff. Though I am a big fan of all things Tali, Liara got stuck in my mind for a while. I couldn't help but think of what made a 106 year old tick, and be so naïve about some things. The answers, for me at least, was having a sheltered childhood, diving into academia to earn a doctorate (probably not easy for a race that lives that long) and burying herself in her work. Unknowingly seeking to avoid putting herself out there and not get hurt. This story that rolled around my head for two weeks until I had to write it, talks of this and eventually why she reacts the way she did when encountering Shepard on Illium later. It's weird how the story of a game can get so into your head, aint it? Get out of my head, dude!

Lara and Sam: Something FunThere was something about the simple act of reading that Lara found fascinating. The fact that one's mind could, almost magically, block out everything around it and focus entirely on the printed word. It was one mystery even she didn't want solved, mainly because it had helped her extensively over the years. Especially on days like today, when finding the strength of mind to concentrate proved to be a challenge.Lara and Sam: Something Fun2 years ago in Humor More Like This
Although, that was a problem less caused by her own mental capacity, and more by the girl laying on the bed beside her. Despite being politely asked more than once to keep her distance, Sam insisted on staying by her side throughout the night. Ordinarily, she'd have no problem with this, but over time, the girl's various habits began to wear on her patience.
Out of the corner of her eye, Lara would constantly catch the motion of Sam's lips moving. Sometimes, she found it cute when the girl would sing alongside the music flowing through her ear-buds, now was not one of those ti

Mako sighed and tried to walk past her. It didn't work, she stepped in front of him to block his way, which resulted in their faces being inches apart, sharing air, feeling each-other's breath on their faces. Their eyes locked and Mako saw a flicker in her eyes that he hadn't seen since the night they found out about Mr. Sato. Man he had missed that look, it sent shivers up his spine and he knew he would drive himself crazy just so she would never lose that look again. He hands moved to her arms and he tentatively moved forwards.
Korra looked deeply into Mako's amber eyes. "Nope, not over him," she thought to herself, "and I never will be." She finally let herself feel the emotions that she had been repressing for days, weeks. She let herself feel the love that made her want him to shove her against the wall and kiss her like he meant it. The love that made her want to protect him from anything the anti-benders might do.

Pain that he had, in his way, caused her to be in. It sickened him to think that one he loved so much was in so much agony. But he knew that when it was over, if things went as well as they both hoped, both he and she would be happier than they had ever been.

Jack Frost, a spirit of cold and ice, was to many people merely a figure of myth. An expression to describe the way the day would become suddenly cold, or an unexpected arrival of snow.

Her descent slowed, and her body righted itself, toes making contact with some kind of surface. It was invisible. All was stars and all was dark. She breathed in the colors, heard the shine, tasted home. She looked up and saw herself, huge and beautiful and terrifying, eyes glowing white, brighter than any sun.
"Korra. We finally meet."
She knew that voice. It felt like she was speaking to herself in her own voice, but it was definitely male. Recognizable and unfamiliar all at once. She turned to the speaker. They'd never met, but she knew him. A man stood far from her, his features hazy, but she could make out one thing. A tattooed arrow, brilliantly white.
Korra jolted awake with a soft gasp.

A sweet Jace and Clary fanfic"Come on Jace" Clary begged her boyfriend. She had been training for a month and Jace always helped her with her training by showing her techniques and even helping her learn the history of shadow hunters in the library. Although this often led to kissing instead of studying which she didn't mind at all. But still he'd never sparred with her before. Jace thought that if they sparred he would accidentally hurt her due to the fact that he is far more trained than she is. It's not like she didn't have anyone to spar with though. Alec and Isabelle were always happy to help Clary with her training and they wouldn't go easy on her like Jace would if they ever did spar. Isabelle would help Clary learn how to use a whip and use it right and Alec would help her with archery.A sweet Jace and Clary fanfic5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

So much had happened in the last three days. The recovery of the data on Tarsulk, Shepard charging in to the rescue, continuing negotiations between the Quarians and Geth, and Trunk's funeral.

Nobody knows his name.
No matter what he tries to do,
It is always the same.
He keeps up with all the trends,
He knows them inside out.
Each one he pulls off perfectly,
Even that selfie-photo pout.
Each week he brings a box of muffins,
Though nobody knows why.
He used to try and hand them out,
Now he doesn't even try.
He shares the muffins with the crows
and eats them one by one.
For consuming that much sugar,
He sure looks miserable when he's done.
He looks down at the empty box
and you see a little smile.
The crows fly off and he lies down;
They'll all be full for quite a while.
The same routine, every week,
I think so that he can pretend,
That in the year that he's been here,
He's made at least one friend.

His hands were quite large in comparison to your hipbones. Chuckling lightly at that fact, your chest fell and rose quickly, which only made him think that he needed to work a bit faster. He was lucky enough to have two hours alone with you, without his little brother hovering over him and screeching “EW” when Tadashi sneaked a kiss in. You both loved Hiro, but despite how intelligent that young boy was, he was still an adolescent and didn’t quite understand the pleasure of actually having someone to hold, as well as kiss. And Tadashi knew, with his hands on your hips and his nails digging into your soft skin, that he could only go so far with you.

desire playing like a movie in the reflection of her pupils,
dilated and focused on your lips,

the others that she no longer cares about.

lips pressed lightly against each other,
pausing only to feel their softness,

Hid her wings just so she could live

She said she was my guardian
She'll toss aside all of her faith
Just so she could keep me save
She makes me feel alive again
She gifts me life I gift her love
She would take me to up above
At least that was our plan
People wouldn't approve of us
But so be it then
She hid her wings
And so her feelings
Pretending not to care
But deep inside she's cursing the world
For not ever being fair
She hid her wings
And sat down in despair
I told her to wait until the world ends
We can be together
But for now let's be friends
She smiled and we waited
We waited forever
And in the end
We would always be together
