Back from the Dust - Chapter SevenI went into my room to take out the Batman t-shirt that Ulquiorra and I bought together yesterday. I took off the white button down, and shoved on the Batman t-shirt instead. I wore that along with a pair of jeans, and tied my hair up for a change.Back from the Dust - Chapter Seven4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
When I came outside, Ulquiorra stepped out of the bathroom with wet hair and to my surprise, he was wearing the Batman t-shirt as well. I burst out laughing and pointed at our matching shirts. "Who knew we'd wear it at the same time?" I asked.
Ulquiorra looked at me from head to toe. "You look better in those clothes onna."
If I didn't know any better, he had just checked me out. "Well, the clothes you had picked out for me weren't the best..."
"I do not know of your human trends." Ulquiorra said, and dried his hair with the towel.
"You will know everything soon enough." I assured him. Honestly though, I was assuring more of myself than him. I really wanted with all my heart for Ulquiorra to be able to fit in. I wanted everyone to lik
Swordmaiden of the Moor - 11: The Solstice ChildSwordmaiden of the Moor - 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The winter came early, the year I was born.
A shrieking north wind raked the moor with bitter talons, driving the snow before it in lances of stinging ice. It lowered the sky in iron-grey clouds, their billows cloaking the moon, and flayed the gorse and the dead brown sedges, riming the world with milky hoarfrost. The mud and sucking sands froze hard, their customary treachery exchanged for the new danger of slippery ice for the duration of the winter. Moor ponies slid and broke their legs, slipped through the ice into the wintry water beneath and died in the teeth of the gale. The cleverer of the fowls and beasts, the cranes and geese and the smaller deer, fled south beyond the mire, there to find succour from the ice. The tougher of them, falcons and ermine and falderhen, cloaked themselves in thick white down and melted into the snow, disappearing from sight.
Grouse and little brown chats froze in the bush and were joined later by the weasel and fox wh

~Chapter Fifteen: I'm Sorry~
What you weren't expecting was the silence.
Screaming, explosions, anything else would have been expected, even acceptable. Fitting. But all there was was that awful, horrible, drawn-out silence that seemed to wrap itself around you like a blanket made of freezing water, never ending.
You stood with your comrades, your family, mouths open and eyes wide. No one said anything. No one did anything. All you could do was stare at the spot that used to be Thomas before he fell, shrieking, down the titan's gullet. And then there was silence.
The titan slowly picked itself up off the ground where it landed and turned, walking away like it hadn't just shattered your whole reality in a split second.
Your fists were clenched so hard you could feel your fingernails puncture the skin of your palms. Blood mingled with sweat. You vaguely noticed the feeling of a sharp pain in your leg from your landing, seconds earlier.
You heard a sound that was something between a sob a

Luna raised her hooves high and cackled loudly as lightning flashed above her, a spectral wind blowing up as if from nowhere and snatching away the loose pages of parchment that she had carefully laid out in front of her. It didn't matter; she knew the spell off by heart. It was nearly complete.
"Soon!" she cried. "Soon it will be my time, I will eep!"
She stopped, wide-eyed as the door to her room flew open and in stormed Princess Celestia, looking quite annoyed.
"My dear sister!" Celestia snapped, looking around the messy room disapprovingly as Luna tried and failed to cover up the chalk markings she had scrawled on the floor. "The entire palace can hear you cackling like a madmare. And what have I told you about using lightning indoors; it's a nightmare to get the stains off the ceiling.

Joey was eleven years old. And Bunnymund had just come to the same conclusion as everyone else.
"We 'aven't seen Jack in five months," North announced, looking stunned. They had all been busy, Tooth with her fairies and teeth, Sandy with the dreams, and Bunnymund had been helping North with the toys for Christmas. And in their spare time, everyone came to Santoff Clausen to see each other and learn how not-so-little Joey was doing. "Bunny, I know you hate to, but will you go find Jack?"
"Yeah, a'right," grumbled the Pooka, but in reality, he was now dead worried about the ice spirit. A small hand touched his hand, and he looked down to see Joey. Picking the boy up into a tight hug, he then handed his son to North. "Watch Joey, will you?" North and Sandy, who was visiting, nodded. Tapping his foot and dropping into a tunnel, Bunnymund rocketed off to go find their lost winter spirit.

Merperson Biology 101: Part 1RespirationMerperson Biology 101: Part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Merpeople use a water lung alternatively with air lungs. Basically the individual can chose to shift between the use of a water lung and air lungs. The water lung acts as a vacuum that pulls water through the gills and sits between the air lungs. There is a partition in the throat that closes off whichever route is not being used. The individual dictates which type of lung to use. The water lung is smaller and there is only one, even though it is the main breathing source. this is because gills are the most efficient form of gathering oxygen, much more efficient than lungs. The individual is accustomed to the large amount of oxygen provided by gills. In some species prolonged exposure to air can lead to death from lack of oxygen. In other species, they may become weaker or not be bothered at all except for physical strain.

You pulled my body to yours
Your lips taste like June
And your skin like summer rain
Wait for me,and I'll come-soon.
I want to know your dreams.
The ones on the inside of your eyelids
Those wrapped into the smell of my lashes
And the purple dust I'll always need.
I live for the touch of your fingers.
Then,our bodies start to burn.
I need you close,so close.
Wait for me,and I'll return.
Don't let the snow take our love.
Without your love,there is no me.
Cause I have no ordinary lucks.
And I have no ordinary sins.
You should know I'll always be there.
We left marks on each other's skin.
For us,there is no end.
I'll stand beside you when you leave.

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.

You can see nothing but the pale moonlight streaming through your window, and your start to breathe quickly. You finally take notice of a pair of arms enveloping you, and you panic. You struggle against the grasp in a flight response but the arms hold you firmly in place, and they are accompanied by a soft voice. “Shh… (your name) it’s me, it’s Jack,” he says slowly.

Timmy darted through the doorway, shouted a meaningless greeting to his parents, and pelted up the stairs to his room.
He flung open the door, slammed it shut just as quickly, and flung his backpack into the corner. Only then did he look up to meet the accusing eyes of the other half of his soul.
Oh God, he thought frantically, How do I explain this?

You should turn away, but you’re completely frozen. Stuck. Hypnotized. Captivated.
“I can’t wait. I’m going to put it on now!” he had exclaimed after releasing you from the hug.
You had thought that he meant he was going to go to a different room to change.
And then that maybe he’d at least keep on the white shirt and put your Christmas present to him on over that.
But no. He had literally meant putting the blue hoodie on in that very moment. In that room. Right in front of you. And to change into just the hoodie.

It was dark; one lonely man stood in a nearly empty parking lot. He had stepped out of his car to go use an ATM machine nearby, as he walked towards the machine a barely audible sound could be heard nearby; the sound of someone cracking their knuckles. The man approached the machine and prepared to use it, when something in the shadows of the night lurked closer. It was very tall; clad in black and odd barbwire-like tendrils protruding from its back. It reached out one of its hands slowly, the man didn’t realize that he was about to be grabbed and crushed by this odd monster.
Suddenly; a cackle was heard. The frightened man turned around quickly, and the hand that was about to grab him drew back. Someone ran across the parking lot, they were dressed in a white hoodie and armed with a single large knife.
