Mias is dead.
She felt a sharp twisting in her chest at the very thought, and she wanted nothing more than to crumple to the floor and cry. She looked towards the island, only able to see the outline of the cliffs and the glimmer of waves as they drifted onto the shore. Elle wanted to hurl herself over the side of the ship, to swim back to Mias and hold him in her arms one last time. But she knew there would be no point in it, that all the wishing and crying, all the promises and kisses in the world would never bring him back. All she could do now was hope that Mias knew what she felt for him. That his love for her was matched by her love for him.
She watched as Elias climbed up the last few steps of the ladder with a wide grin on his face,
(m/m) Dollmaker Prt.3There was nothing much more between them that night. David, in all his late nights driven by obsession, had never experienced such a complete and thorough exhaustion. He carefully dried Julio's skin, running thick fluffy towels over his body and stroking and murmured until the boy ceased to tremble and his muscles relaxed. It was like comforting an infant, David reflected, as he lay Julio down beside him and continued to coax and soothe with his hands, but there was a certain sensuality to his actions that could not be denied. It was what he had intended, dreamt of and worked towards, after all. Each caress carried the whisper of desire and Julio leaned into him and sighed deliciously, satisfied and just slightly aroused by his touch.(m/m) Dollmaker Prt.33 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He soon fell asleep and David followed him gratefully, burying his face in Julio's hair and breathing him in. He had fantasized about this, he had so longed for this, but the reality was more than his imagination could have conjured, complete with the har

The scent of disinfectant hung in the air in a cloying, unpleasant way. Fabien’s skin still stung with it and now and again his eyes watered, not from emotion, but from the chemicals that had been applied to his sensitive flesh. He had been scrubbed and sanitized until his skin was pink and smarting but he was now undeniably clean. He hugged the soft material of his favourite hoodie closer to his body, and leant against the window frame. He tried not to wince when his skin pressed against the cool glass and concentrated on undoing the newly-acquired metal clasps.
Since his forbidden excursion to nearby infected waters his father had forbidden him from leaving the house. He had even ensured that one of his colleagues stayed in the house with him when he was out, during the day. The same man who babysat him had run through the standard ‘disinfection process’ and carefully run a small cotton swab around his mouth to provide the pivotal sample for their labs. Fabien has b

He gazed at the concrete wall in front of him, lost in his thoughts. Shouts could be heard outside, further away the still distant thunder-like sounds.
My platoon has been pointed out to be sent to Japan; I'll arrive in Iwo Jima to fight soon.
His hands trembled and made it hard to continue reading the letter. But it didn't really matter, because he had already memorized it all, though the mail had been handed out less than an hour ago.
What he longed for, and feared the most, seemed to come true. This should not happen, not like this.
A beeping noise followed by clicks disturbed his worries, and everyone's attention turned to Souta, their decoder. A message from the headquarters. Silent waiting.
Souta handed the little piece of paper to Captain Ito, whose eyes moved from side to side in his expressionless face, quickly sucking in the information, before he looked up and glanced at every soldier's face.
"They are here," Ito said. "Find your weapons and get ready."

After you changed back into your usual outfit, you went across the hall to the Elric brothers’ room.
You knocked on the door. There was a pause before there was a reply.
“Come in!” Al said. “It’s open.”
You opened the door to the Elric brothers’ room. After shutting the door, you examined your surroundings.
The room looked just like yours. Alphonse sat on the floor cross-legged, looking at some papers. Edward was lying on the bed to the left, facing the wall. He seemed to be in his own little world.
You looked at him sympathetically before sitting on the floor across from Al, who was studying the papers. They appeared to be some kind of research notes.
“What are those?” you asked Al. “Are those alchemy notes?”
Al glanced up at you for a second and looked back at the papers. “No,” he replied casually. “These are notes on Scar that the military took. More like reports. I’m seeing if they can help us

I never believed in love at first sight. I don't believe in changing myself to make someone love me and I sure as hell don't believe in those quizzes that insist we're perfect for each other or that it's true love.
And yet, here I am buying Seventeen. Again. I fiddle with my red ponytail, I'm probably needing a cut soon, while the cashier runs my purchases. Three packs of beef jerky and two Gatorades along with the magazine get stuffed into my back pack. Not as easy as it sounds considering I'm also carrying two smoothies and trying to leave as fast as humanely possible.
I hate the mall and want to get out as quickly as I can; it's noisy and all the beauty stores with their scented everything give me a headache. Nothing I can do about it though, Booster Juice is a decent place to work while I'm in school.
Besides, he loves it when I bring him smoothies.

DBuilding SmutHe was kissing me. That was the only logical thought I could process. He was kissing me. His lips were moving against mine with an impatient aggression that made my knees weak and my heart race. The wall behind me and his weight against me were the only things holding me up, and one of his legs was pressing between mine. My mind was racing at a speed that I couldn't follow, jagged ideas and muffled observations leaping past me until I couldn't understand what was going on. I was acting impulsively, my hands resting against his chest and my tongue brushing against his without consulting my mind. I felt it shut down, no longer required in this situation.DBuilding Smut7 years ago in Erotic More Like This

“So (y/n)”, Edward said. You turned to the blond boy. “I recall you saying you would tell us why you don’t need a transmutation circle to perform alchemy.”
You felt the slightest bit worried. The memory of saying you would tell them about your past lingered in your mind.
“Well…” you trailed off. “It’s a long story.”
Edward crossed his auto-mail leg over his right leg (and damn did he look sexy), resting his head on his hand.
“We have the time to listen.” He said, his golden eyes sparkling with interest.
You told the Elric Brothers everything. About your friend, the Truth-practically everything. The boys had seemed to be slightly surprised.
“I’ve always felt as though I was the only person guilty of committing the taboo,” you finished thoughtfully. “I’ve never heard of someone else who also attempted human transmutation.”

It felt stalkish looking at her while she slept but- I can’t help it. My eyes travel down to look at her. She breathed quietly in long breaths, her silky (h/c) hair laid around her pretty face. I gulped blushing to myself in thought. As much as I didn’t want to, I decided to get out of her room. I needed to talk to Al. So I gently moved laying her gently on the pillow and walking out. I walked through the still darkened halls of her house as I came to our room. Al was sleeping upright on the ground. I pulled on my red jacket and walked over to him knocking on his metal helmet.

She tried to scream when she saw a form coming towards her out of the shadows, but only managed a small squeak. She shot up in bed and scooted back until she was pressed against the headboard, bringing her knees to her chest.
When the figure became clearer thanks to the candlelight, Elle let out a shaky breath when she saw that it was only Mias.
"You scared the hell out of me," Elle breathed, pressing her hand against her chest.
Mias tilted his head as he watched her, a sly smile spreading across his lips. His eyes dragged over her face and down her neck to where she had the blanket tugged up over her knees, before his gaze met hers once more.
Elle shivered. He was looking at her a
8: Mias Finds ElleElle rose slowly from the spot where she had been sitting for the past hour. She wasn't usually one to feel sorry for herself, but Elias' spiteful words, rough hands, and unwanted kisses had taken their toll on her. Yet in spite of his constant cruelty, Elle was amazed at how she had handled things thus far, drawing on an inner strength that she didn't know that she possessed.8: Mias Finds Elle3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Drawing on that strength once more, Elle took in her surroundings in the hope that she would find something that could help her escape. After all, if what Elias had said about Mias was true, then she was in fact on her own. As she looked around the surprisingly large space of the cabin, hoping that she would spot something to aid in her escape plan, Elle held on to the hope that Elias had been lying. That seemed highly likely, given his behavior, but she wasn't going to pin her hopes on a possibility. As far as she was concerned, she was going to have to figure a way out of this situation herself.

On thin IceHis skates cut fresh groves into the ice as he gained speed, the soft rhythm of a song playing in the empty rink, echoing its beats in time to the skater’s feet. He spun, once, twice, and then gracefully glided into another loop, carving his routine into the frozen glass.On thin Ice1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Loki’s mind was at one with the song, his breath barely past it’s normal rate as his body moved with the music, frost flying as he neared the final seconds. The song was near its close, and he prepared his body and mind for the final leap.
The last chord hung in the air as Loki’s skates left the ice. His body twirled in the air for the span of a heartbeat, and a rare smile crossed his face as his body spun, first one skate slamming into the landing, and then the second.
He’d done it, he’d landed it, and someone was watching. His heart skipped a beat in surprise, and his skate caught in a track, and he felt himself stumble as the song went to static, the music done. With a startled c

A breath of healthy wind blew past her face and Elle found her heart nostalgic for her homeland, for only a moment. The air was crisper, cleaner than the polluted clouds that too often hung over England and brought only gray weather. Here the sky was bright blue with hardly any clouds reflecting in the crystal clear water.
It seemed almost mysterious for a place to hold such beauty while supporting a populous Elle would guess numbered in the tens of thousands. Wooden docks outlined most of the shore line as Ares trotted into the city along the coastal road. Facing the docks were several two and three story buildings whose ground floors all seemed to be devoted to business. Elle could smell the pungent stink of a fish stand, the gentle aroma of a bakery, and of course the merry scent of a pub and its happy patrons.

Edward was shaking slightly in front of you. Scar stopped about five feet in front of Edward.
“So,” Scar said, his tone of voice sending shivers down your spine. “You are going to try and catch me again?”
“Damn right!!!” Edward yelled angrily. He dashed at Scar, clapping his hands together. He stopped and bent down in front of Scar, touching his hands to the ground.
Large pillars of rock headed for Scar, but he dodged them all, landing on the ground after the attack.
You nodded to Al. You knew it was your time to fight.
