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.

"We are halfway to our destination. You rode very well last night."
Dr. Gwen looked up into the great wolf's face, which fairly glowed, its frame of sleek wolf-hair looking like glistening flames in the illumination of the setting sun's last rays. She attempted a small smile at the compliment. But even the muscles in her face were still sore from the exhausting ride, even after she had slept almost the entire day away. She had awakened only an hour earlier to find a meal left warming for her over a nearby campfire. There was also in the near distance a small makeshift teepee-like tent which she discovered was equipped to provide everything needed for a quick ladylike clean-up, including privacy. But Knight Nathaniel was missing. It was as she was finishing the surprisingly sweet and tasty tea he had left prepared for her that the wolfen guardian rea

in shambles, and left it, broken
and rained on like cardboard boxes on city streets
five years after my destruction proved inadequate
until someone else

ruined me worse.
my bones splintered under the thin
stretch of skin
covering them until i grew thick limbs,

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.

She spun round frantically and, seeing the Princess just behind her, reflexively clutched the Princess's royal wrist. She then gasped a slight gasp and released her impulsive grasp, hoping she had not done something wrong. But Princess Winona only smiled a reassuring smile.
"What's wrong, Larissa?" asked Winona.
"I've, I've lost Reggie and Bea!" sputtered Larissa.
Winona's smile remained. "I'm sure we've only misplaced them. They are certainly too precious to us to ever become lost to us." And with that, Princess Winona made a motion with her hand and the small engulfing sea of Royal Council Princesses parted

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.

Thoughts and smiles, bound
To bondage of kings and serfs
They sow an unrepentant land.

Larissa could feel the pounding of her heart sharpen and quicken, as if there were a terrified trapped mouse inside her and it wanted to burst free of her chest and flee back down the polished stone hallway to the sunlight and freedom outside! It was then that Bea clasped Larissa's hand tightly in her furry paw and Larissa was greatly relieved to know that she wasn't the only one shaking with nervousness. She glanced sideways at Reggie and saw that he was pretending to be very cool and calm and matter-of-fact about all these fancy regal goings-on, but he kept nervously clearing his throat with little coughs that sounded like little muffled foxy snarls. Only Lord Chamberlain Reynard seemed quite in his natural element, fairly prancing down the long broad hallway just in front of the shaky trio of nervous visitors.

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.

And another two hundred with your jewelry...
You glimmer like the sky...
You glimmer like a star...
Rushing towards another...
Where is your other?
Where is your love?

A friend to all is a friend to none...

No star to become one with...
No star to disappear with...
Just like so many in the sky...

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

And inject them with the very darkness of your soul!
