Boy was about nineteen. A young man really, but his face made him look younger. Girl was younger, maybe fifteen, sixteen. Peter Bowen thought as he kept his distance considering the situation, studying the several people involved.
City of wade was under Arenian occupation for over three centuries now, and Arenian trackers seeking out mages to be drafted to their military force was hardly an unusual event. Most people who were learned in spellcasting kept their skills hidden, and their weapons were creatively concealed.
Still give it enough time and any trickery will stand revealed. Trackers were by now very skilled in noticing anything with engraved spellcasting spiral. A ring, a stick, the smallest of things. They knew what they were looking for.
This was what baffled peter as he studied the unfolding situation. Boy was blatantly wearing two short swords with the casting spiral boldly and prominently visible on their handles. Either he was a fool, of a foreigner who decide

Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey
Hurron pretended to be sleeping, while he watched his son standing guard by the fire. Boy has grown strong, stronger than the old wives of the village have foreseen. However, that was not surprising. Hurron never looked kindly on the self-proclaimed prophets. Fate is what one makes of it, and his

Chapter One- The Arrival of Cousin Jen
Janet Van Dyne quickly made her way to the door, curious as to who the visitor could be after she had been informed of the arrival of the visitor by JARVIS, the artificial intelligence system that was intergrated into the mansion by Tony Stark himself. She had just changed out of her Avengers attire and into her normal, more comfortable clothing which consisted of a raven-black & gold short-sleeve t-shirt and a pair of khaki pants when JARVIS announced the presence of their unexpected guest. Once JARVIS had informed her, Janet rushed down the staris at a speed that seemed almost impossible, even for someone as fast & agile as she was. Coming to a stop directly in front of the doors, Janet made sure to smooth out her clothing, wanting to look her best as always when greeting a guest.

All up and down my legs.
They sleep in my skin
And hide my sin,
My precious red fireflies.
They ignite my body
And set it ablaze.
They turn all of my pain
Into a crimson haze,
My precious red fireflies.
They burn through flesh
In a criss-cross mesh
And spread their wings
All over me,
My precious red fireflies.
They hum silently,
Whispering away my shame.
They burn brightly,
Setting my blood aflame,
My precious red fireflies.
I hate them but they love me
But nobody can ever see
Because they refuse to leave.
Not that I want them to;
Because they care,
More than you ever could do,
My precious red fireflies.
They want me to die,
To jump, to fly.
They want to own me.
They want to set me free
And make it so it can be
And my precious red fireflies.

Part Four- Crimson and Clover
The Leader's Helicarrier
The Helicarrier itself shook with the fury of the battle pitting Hulk and Shego against the Hulked-Out Avengers and the Hulked-Out Masters of Evil! It was literally a clash of titans, and the fate of the world rested on Hulk and Shego's shoulder, for they were the only ones that could stand a chance of defeating The Leader now! Still, in order for either of them to reach The Leader, they were both going to have to deal with the Hulked-Out Avengers and the Hulked-Out Masters of Evil, for there was no way of getting past them.
Hulk was dealing with Hulked-Out Thor, Executioner, Wonder Man, Ant-Man, Crimson Dynamo, and Iron Man; Shego was busy with Hulked-Out Enchantress and Wasp, though she was having an easier time besting them in combat than Hulk was with the rest of the Hulked-Out Avengers and Masters of Evil. Shego had to admit, there was a part of her that

Compassion to a War Criminal
The second Prince of Asgard lied there in the dungeon of prisoners, buried at the bottom of the palace of Odin, awaiting trial, which would come from the mouth and hand of the man he called father once.
He stood sitting on a bench attached to the wall, sustained by two short, thick, rusty chains at each end. He shrugged; his eyes seemed colorless and lost; his disheveled black hair. He likened to a war criminal rather than a Prince ... his current appearance contrasted perfectly. As he was last seen in the Asgardian throne, it was probably a criminal.
His throat was dry and he looked sick and paler than usual. He had not eaten or drunk anything in the last three days. Perhaps someone was waiting for him to get weak and he could be attacked without even fight back. They could get rid of the goddamn outcast, he thought.
In darkness he did not notice, by the deafening silencing him, making him unaware of reality as the current situation, no

He was gone. And, just like when she lost him the first time, she hadn't been able to at least help him or be by his side when it happened. The only thing she had left was her damn reflection. Every time she looked into the mirror she saw him. Seconds later after looking, the guilt, the sadness, the pain would all settle in and Jess's knees would buckle. "It'd get easier," they told her, "Some day it will." But that wasn't soon enough for her--she just wanted the ache to go away.
And it did, eventually, until she looked into the mirror again and broke down all over again.
Jessica hadn't gone to the funeral. The first, obvious reason being her looks. Too many questions to answer if someone noticed her. The second Tony had brought up when he offered to escort her along with Aunt May and Gwen. She did consider it, as it might have been a little therapeutic to be able to grief with others who were close to him. She had respectively declined his offer, knowing that it would only

After a while he slowed a little, “Sunshine?”
You opened your eyes and sure enough you stood outside a small Shwarma restaurant, you sighed and pulled away from him. He smiled that soft smile at you, making your heart flip and a grin play across your face. You grabbed his hand, “Come on Brucey. I’m starved.”
Feeling some energy return to you, you pulled him the extra few yards to and through the door at a brisk skip, finding that you had arrived just in time to order with the rest of your group.

What the freak? What was this place… ? You heard voices that sounded oddly familiar so you followed them, careful of where you stepped on the purple grass that seemed to cover this place. You came to a big bay window and kneeled on the bench to get a good look through. You saw Bruce pacing, a shadow of stubble gracing his jaw, and a tired-looking Tony leaning against some surface, talking to him.
“I had Jarvis go over the tapes. She was bleeding long before she collapsed. Her abilities must have been blocking out how over extended she was.”
Bruce didn’t stop, “I should have known. I should have noticed.”

Bruce watched you leave and didn’t follow, he understood you wanted to be away from a situation that would cause you to harm others. Besides, going after you wouldn’t exactly help with Tony’s taunting. He turned and leveled Tony with an unamused glare, “Can’t you just lay off her? She’s had a rough day already.”
Tony just smirked at him, “You would know, what with you getting all cozied up to her while we were gone. We were off fighting evil, while you two were becoming Anger buddies. Exactly how far did you get with her to earn that title, Brucey.”
Bruce went to his computer trying to avoid direct confrontation, “She wanted to go with you, you know that, and despite what you may think nothing happened. We just talked and then we agreed to calm each other down when things start to go bad out of mutual necessity.”
“That hug looked like more than mutual necessity if you ask me, Brucey”

Here is a character that is me. In every way and form, me. We are so much the same. Me. That is, if I had spiky hair that was white as freshly-fallen snow, command over winter phenomena, and mesmerizing blue eyes. Oh, and one other thing that I am not. I’d have to be a boy. But that is where the differences end between me and him.
My Jack Frost.
He went unseen, unheard for three hundred years. I haven’t had quite that lengthy existence, but it has felt like an eternity. Nobody believing in him. In me. To try to reach out and be heard only to be walked right through like nothing but air. And yet, to continue to assist others and bring them goodness—bring them happiness and fun—despite the fact that it would not change my invisibility even though I secretly hoped it would, despite the implications it had for me. That’s us. Alone in the world.

You let out a deep sigh as you stared at yourself in front of your mirror. It’d been almost three hours since you locked yourself in the bathroom with your dress. Your talent with hairdressing was no match for what you could do with makeup. You were wearing a satin blood red dress. It was strapless but you decided to sacrifice the discomforting feeling of it for superior looks. This was a party after all—when else were you going to look your best if not now? Your red dress felt quite tight against your body but you nevertheless were very satisfied with your look. You checked if the colors of your eye shadow blended together perfectly once more before you sprayed your hair to make it puffier. You made a three sixty around yourself.
“Looking good” you mumbled and smiled. “I wonder what Loki will think of me…” you thought and butterflies fluttered in your tummy.

November, senior year of high school. Chapter title: “Decision.”
I think it was poetry. “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” I believe. But I’m not too sure.
You see, I was too busy daydreaming to really pay attention.
Or, should I say, “lost in thought”?
Anyway, my brain was so preoccupied with other thoughts that there just simply wasn’t room for even the discussion going on in one of the two classes I didn’t absolutely despise—English. The other was Calculus.
Oh, my brain.

Oddly enough, it was empty out there. You looked over Loki’s shoulder to see that the entire crowd was inside the ballroom and there were some announcements being made. It was all meaningless buzzes for you; you felt the damp air against your skin and slightly woke up from the numb feeling. You saw that the mirror trend was also carried out here, there were many mirrors, put in a big circle and the middle of it was the dance floor which was completely empty now.
After Loki pulled you in the middle of the dance floor, he turned to face you with a frown and let out a deep sigh. You looked around the countless mirrors surrounding you, spotting Loki from any angle you could possibly look at him. The seriousness of his face made you feel uneasy, but on the other hand you knew you had a reason to be this grumpy. You were determined to keep your silence until he broke his.

It had been a long day, our parents wouldn’t be back till I ate at night and I was exhausted after taking care of the twins all day. I fell into a deep sleep, waking up around six a.m. to find my brother was already up and about and my sister had crawled into bed with me. I sighed as I sat up, trying to move without waking her and blinked as my brother ran into the room with his arms full of snakes, which he threw at me. I yelped, pulling the sheet up and blocking them from landing freely on me.
