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

I know who you are, walking alone

And your own secret throne,
The secrets you hide,
You know that I know.
Don't know your destination,
Disgust of Assassination
I know why you're you, out in the dark,
With that look in your eye,
That electric spark,
That past that you hide,
It's no secret anymore.
Your not at all cliched,
Double blade, a maid,
Made to assassinate
I know your past, why you hide away,
The family and friends you lost,
The price you had to pay,
It's not really your fault,
Your not that alone.
You take a long time deciding,
Your striding, colliding
Your own world your dividing
I know you begged, when you were young,
In streets at morn, dusk and dawn,
To feed yourself, I know that it stung,
Scars in your heart,
Though of course you won't

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jack Frost was walking swiftly in the small little town, passing small little shops. He knew no one could see him- actually no one could see him for millions of years. He wasn't trying to attract the mortals attention. He wasn't going to because he knew it was impossible.
It's been a few years since Pitch was gone and the Guardians had won. Jack Frost remembered how he was thrown in the sack by a kangaroo. Which who was actually a Bunny Rabbit. Not that he didn't know- which he didn't. Now he was bored unable to let anyone see him. Things maybe different and all- but he wishes to be able to be seen, and loved by someone. Someone he will love back and care for. He was optimistic about being seen by someone, but it's been years that no one could and he still misses his brown chocolate colored hair that is now snow white.

Kioshi felt a cool drop of water touch his cheek and slide down to his chin. For a couple of seconds, he thought perhaps he had begun to cry. Simply being in Hitoshis absence for more then a few mere moments was certainly enough to bring him to tears, he had no doubts. But his foggy mind finally seemed to realize that the drop was too cold to be a tear, and had touched his skin with more force. His guarded gray-blue eyes looked up to the sky, the heavens hidden from view by a heavy curtain of thick gray clouds that seemed to be hugging closer to the earth then they should be. The dampened sky now matched his eyes, and as if the clouds were trying to make him realize this, another teardrop of rain splashed silently under his left eye.
Turning his face away from the laden heavens, Kioshi touched his cheek with two fingers and then stared at them for some time, watching the cool water warm on his fingertips and slowly dry away.

This Will Make You Love AgainThe day Curt Connors lost his arm was the day he realised he could never have a normal relationship again. As soon as he returned to his laboratory he noticed people were looking at him differently, and not because of his long absence. Sympathetic whispers seemed to follow him around, spiking tension through his body, and on the rare occasions someone did decide to make eye contact with him it was strained and minimal. People's gazes ended up drifting to the ceiling or their own feet during conversation, though he supposed it could have been worse; it was better, at least, than them gawping slack-jawed at the empty space where his arm should have hung.This Will Make You Love Again3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Days in class seem pointless,
Hours go by without notice,
A void of saddness creeps in,
Our world as we know it seems to spin,
To many questions no answers found,
Can't stare strait must look to the ground,

Not letting me free, not letting me go,
Holding me in heavy metal chains,
Keeping me in, keeping me restrained,
Depression attacks my once flourishing heart,
Turns it cold, rips it apart.

The horizon comes over the hills and breaks onto my eyes.
The rising sun on my armor shines.
Through my blonde bangs my blue eyes gaze.
Over the world of Vana'diel; the world in which I spent many days.
I saved the world more than once,
The stakes were high and rewards just.
To many lands I always roamed,
Bastok never was my only home.
I braved the dunes and I survived,
I unearthed the Zilart and touched the skies.
I severed the chains of a god most foul,
I explored worlds covered in shrouds.
I defeated NMs big and small,
I proved my patience and camped them all.
Many allies helped guide my way,
While many still would fade away.
I was a mercenary for an empire in need,
I stood tall with the sentinels during siege.
I explored across land and sea,
And answered each and every plea.
I stood on mountains gazing far,
I wished and hoped on every star.
Delkfutt's tower I did climb,
Gustav tunnel I did mine.
Many enemies laid in my way,
My weapons took me through the fray.
