You brace yourself for impact.
But it doesn’t come.
You feel something catch you, slowing down the pace of your fall. You slowly open your eyes, daring to relax.
The wind whirls around your feet and shins, providing a cushion between you and the hard ground.
It slowly sets you down, your feet softly making contact with the earthen floor.
It leaves your feet and swirls up and around you in a single, long, invisible line, making you giggle as your clothes dance slightly from the wind. You’re reminded of a cat’s tail wrapping around its owner’s leg as it purrs, longing to be pet and loved.
It leaves the rest of your body and rubs against your cheek, feeling very much like a delicate hand resting on your face in a final farewell. Then, it departs.
Thank you, you call after it, still smi

"Suck it losers! Make way for the awesome Gilbert!"
You giggled as your best friend Gilbert continued to make a fool of himself. He didn't care and that's what you loved about him. Sure, he could be a little brash and prideful, but there was another side to him. In middle school, you were always the target because you got the best grades. You were outside the school, surrounded by a group of girls. They had pushed you into the wall and broken your glasses, now they just sneered and laughed as you cried. Then out of nowhere appeared this strange looking boy. He came up to you and picked up your broken glasses and then turned to the girls. "You know, bullying is so not awesome." He grabbed your arm and pulled you away from them. Ever since then, you've clung to his side. That was the day you fell for the egotistical sweetheart.
You and Gilbert were spending study hall in the library, with you actually studyin

This was a war I could not afford to loos and no plans in doing so. Still though, as I lessoned to the cries of my men as they fought on and on I started to feel a little bad for pushing them into this. But me being their country I suppose they had no other choice.

Trying to play fight with a pokemon was a bad choice to begin with… but trying to play fight with an eleven foot snake that’s body was as thick as your head was a whole different mistake.
Serperior, who was normally so high class and gentle and easy going, turned into a thorough killer when she was in battle, and regardless of it being a play fight or not she was still the scariest fucking thing I had ever come face to face with (accept maybe for my own dilemmas).
She was strong, a solid slithering muscle covered in sleek oily skin, glistening under the moon as the starts twinkled and the late summer hat set in. It had been especially hot around Aspertia this last week, and threats about wild fires had come on the news—not a good sign when east on the mainland Unova was suffering from snow flurries.
I hadn’t decided what to do about Team Plasma really… but I decided that if things got worse and I heard anything more about it on the news I would h

“I don’t understand Kyou…” I murmured, thinking back to the frantic phone call the other day—just before we arrived in Humilau to satisfy Rosa. “She hasn’t even called and… she sounded so desperate before.”
“Who cares?” He purred a lulling sound, feeling the sun on his back as our small cabin came with large open windows that let in a sea breeze. We were staying right on the water, and I knew that… even with the worry of Rosa and what could be happening with team Plasma—this was also going to be one of the most amazing times of my life—seeing Kyouhei this happy.
If he thought Undella was beautiful he must have thought that Humilau was a dream of pure splendor and glory. I had caught him out in the ocean a few times already—waking up in the middle of the night because the tide got high, only to find him gone, or when I woke up from a shower this morning, he had vanished once again to the
Chance in Hell: Riddler and Two-faceEdward Nigma sighed as he sat, bored, in the grey walled rec room of Arkham. He watched as Joker span and danced in the room prattling on about his last fight with Batman, and saying that he shared a connection with the vigilante that no one else did, and that's why he would win.Chance in Hell: Riddler and Two-face3 years ago in Romance More Like This
He leant back on the metal chair, looking over as Harvey glared at the clown and stated, "Win what Joker? This isn't a game."
"Oh but it is! It's a wonderful game, and I'm going to win!" Joker squealed happily.
Eddy rolled his eyes, "Harvey, to him everything is a game, you should know that by now."
Harvey gave an audible growl, he looked around the room; they'd thrown everyone together again for whatever reason, he hated when they did this, too many variables. He found a seat – Next to Edward, as he had for the past two months, the only place where he didn't feel as if he were being looked at as a freak.

His Angel A sigh-- John was slouching in his armchair, staring at Sherlock's seat that had remained empty for the past 6 months.His Angel2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Standing up, John took a few steps forwards and reached out with a shaky hand to touch the chair Sherlock had once used, letting out an almost whiny sigh, closing his eyes briefly before sitting down. He'd been too afraid-- too weak, even, to touch Sherlock's chair or go too close to his bedroom. Living alone in the flat was like some sick kind of torture, but John couldn't find it in himself to just leave, either. Their home was the closest John could get to Sherlock, aside from visiting his grave-- but he'd thought that staying in the flat was more comforting.
With his arms resting on the arms of the chair, John leaned back. Mixed with the smell of leather upholstery, John could smell Sherlock-- he could smell his familiar yet dull scent of middle-class bar soap and expertly cleaned, fresh linen. As he exhaled slowly, a tear

They built me in the shadows
And bled my sallow, rigid
Blood until I was a waif
And bent on hell's revenge.
At the toll of torn benevolence
Rose my mother and my
Forefathers; yet none of
Them could ever stand with me.
They construct my heart from
Beating tissue of living flesh,
Ripped from the shreds and
Tatters of rotting, sour souls.
And so, here I lie, a product
Of a broken past and the
Malicious intent of men who
Were better strangled by fate.
Let no one find me, for I can
Do this on my wretched own.
Decrepit and disillusioned; no
One dares release my fetid bonds.
Yet I can hear the machinist's
Machines working for the men
Who bulk and exhaust their
Inhuman, sanguinary steam.
They incite my rage as I lie
On the cusp of sleepless sleep,
A savant of all the idiots that
Cannot stand their ground.
I can sense them, their crooked
Thoughts and smiles, bound
To bondage of kings and serfs
They sow an unrepentant land.
Hear me, now; I will end this
Sin to flawed perfection.

Chance in Hell: Riddler and Two-face pt 2Going to sleep was probably the best part of Edward’s day now. Before going to sleep he would sign ‘goodnight’ through the thick glass, and lay down in bed, Harvey would do the same, and they would face each other, the glass would be the only thing separating them, they would lie for a few minutes and just look at each other, Two-face would quickly start to drift off, and would roll over to sleep. But Edward would continue watching him, sometimes for hours if he couldn’t sleep.Chance in Hell: Riddler and Two-face pt 23 years ago in Romance More Like This
He’d lay and watch the other man’s chest rise and fall, wishing he could hear his breath, his heartbeat, anything, anything that wasn’t his own. He felt so lonely. He missed talking, really talking, not signing. The only times he got to talk now was in their hour breaks in the rec rooms during the day and in counselling sessions, and even then he didn’t get to talk to Harvey very much. In the rec room he was always afraid of the other patients seeing them,

Harvey took a gentle seat on his bed and watched Riddler for a moment, eventually saying “What’re you reading?”
Edward’s eyes jumped from his book and his face burst into an immediate smile, “Oh Harv. Uh, it’s one of Crane’s books on schizophrenia and split personality disorder.”
Harvey felt himself hunch slightly, he disliked when Edward talked about the conditions he suffered from, because he so often did so as if Harvey knew nothing about it. Edward always seemed to assume that whoever he was talking to knew nothing, and then seemed astonished when he found out that they did know about it.
He had lived it, was living it, and Edward didn’t seem able to understand that.
“Why’s that?” he asked, trying not to sound disheartened.
A brother thingIn his mind it seemed like it started after his older brother gained his independence from Sweden.A brother thing5 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Iceland hadn't seen his brother since 1814, last sight of him being his defiant march away from Denmark's house after a hug and many apologies. He remembered his brother saying he would return to take Eirikur with him when he had gained enough strength to protect him.
It took his brother 20 minutes to make up his mind after centuries of oppression, and leave in fury.
It took his brother 91 years to come back.
Iceland could clearly remember the day Mikkel took him out to the harbor. He could clearly remember feeling out of place in the sun, in the sea breeze.
And he could clearly remember the soaring feeling in his chest when his brother walked off the ship and embraced him.
He could remember being scared. What if his brother had changed the last 91 years? He was skinny, but overall he looked alright. He hadn't gained any lands, nor had he gained any wealth. But he had his independence, an

"Yao!! Wait up!" You called, chasing after your Chinese best friend.
The long brown haired boy turned and looked at you, smiling. "Well hurry up, (name). Your kung fu lessons start soon."
When you caught up to him, he started walking again and you easily kept pace with him. Not only was he in your class, and your best friend, but he also taught you kung fu in his free time at his house. And even thought it was just the two of you, he kept you on a strict schedule with practices saying that it teaches discipline, which is what, in his words, kung fu is all about. But some of the time the two of you would just end up acting stupid and laughing. You still did get some training in, even though it didn’t seem like it.

This time, I didn't. In the eight months since I officially moved in with Harveys, I've become quite skilled at the old 'Pardon me, does this smell like chloroform to you?' technique. Figuratively speaking, of course; the sedatives I've acquired are much better suited to multiple uses. And I've learned not to let him fall onto anything hard. I didn't have much time before Two-Face would begin to get violent, so Harvey has been laying on the floor of our bedroom for a few hours. During that time I managed to burn myself on the stove, but I'm otherwise unharmed. This time.

Everywhere Touko looked, all she could see was darkness. She wanted to reach out into the darkness; try to find her way out. But her fear kept her locked in place. She could see nothing, feel nothing, hear nothing.
No. She could hear something in the distance. Straining her ears, Touko could tell what it was.
The flat-line of a heart monitor.
No no no!
Touko dreaded this sound ever since she was a small child. She fell to her knees and covered her ears, trying to drown out the sound of someone's life ending. Hot tears streamed from her eyes. She felt her body shaking, praying that the sound would fade and leave her alone.
Instead, she felt the barrel of a gun on the back of her neck.
That stopped her shuddering.
She dared not turn around or even move an inch as she felt the cold metal pressing into her skin. Her fear reached its maximum limit as she let out a blood-curdling scream into the darkness.

Too weak with sorrow to leave the cave the two fell asleep in each other’s arms. As morning’s light drifted in from the distance entrance the dragon’s rough muzzle nudged Zelda awake.
She sat up, head pounding from a likely concussion, the Queen wearily opened her bloodshot eyes to find the owl between her and the entrance; he had kept watch over them the entire night.
