An arch angel hangs aloft
Looked down on humanity
He did scoff
The devil questioned why
Was humanity assumed to die
By the rats with wings up in the sky
God may have taught them how to hope
But no holy light can cleans this flock
Not even the pope or so they forgot
But it was the devil who taught them to dance
Given a chance
the dance of the macab begins
let them live with their sins
the pried to live
lust to love
and ignore the holy above
sloth to sleep
and dreams to keep
with greed for gold
Which to reap
gluttons for food
wrath to lighten the mood
Envy to be whatever their not
And kill a man to never get caught
This is the freedom given by Eve
After eating that apple seed
Free will from god
A gift is it not odd?
That it was paradise lost
At such a high cost
The devil sympathizes
Not even god realizes
That in all his creations
He made a fragile thing
Nothing with a special wing
So tragic a human death will be
But in the end the human will always

And it feels like the ground is not there
And my heart plays games with me
My mind spins from time to time
And tells my feet to dance
To the hearts unknown rhyme
How unfair it all seems to the soul
Not knowing which way the heart
But it is a wonder how the head
Fallows the heart
And the feet fallow as part of this strange dance
I find myself in, but I don't know how this game goes
Only the heart seems to know
So the feet continue to wander
And the soul begins to ponder
How unfair it is mischievous heart
You make me act a fool from time to time
Because my mind seems to play along
And then the feet move to this song
Well, I suppose there is no choice in the matter

Fantasies Come True! Or NotShe sat boredly at the counter, twirling her blonde hair in her fingers and chewing noisily on her bubble gum. It was a boring day in the grocery store, and almost completely dead at eight in the evening. Savannah could be such a quiet town sometimes, and the cashier with the name tag that read 'Beth' was bored out of her mind.Fantasies Come True! Or Not6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
She liked to fantasize while she sat like this; she would think about meeting some handsome customer that would purr out his words at her, possibly lean down to teasingly read her name tag and tell her that her name was pretty. Then he'd comment on her gorgeous blue eyes and ask for her number. Oh, and he'd be a little older, but that was just a small detail. Too bad all the guys she ever met were gay or taken.
Suddenly, a customer approached the register out of the blue. Beth's jaw fell open and she stared as the man stopped in front of her, placing his basket of goods on the counter and giving her a dazzling smile. It was like her fantasy came to life! He was
UnwindIt was a hot, humid summer night when we escaped hell.Unwind3 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
It wasn’t exactly hell, but you could perceive it as so. All I could hear was the whirring of the chopper in my ears, the infected below us little dots. Dots that ceased to exist in the past two years. What had happened was that we were taken to a CEDA quarantine camp—heh, CEDA actually saved us for once. We met the three survivors that we had encountered in Rayford; Zoey, Francis and Louis.
But something else was different, too.
Ellis lost one attribute—his crush on Zoey. And that was definitely my fault. When he had met her, jealousy burned in my stomach. I didn’t know why at first because I thought he was a stupid kid. I had finally figured it out after months of pondering once we had reached the safe room that led to the bridge… which was supposedly freedom. Long story short; it wasn’t.
I loved him. I loved Ellis.
Saturday Night FeverNick loved the turntable that Ellis had purchased him for his birthday. He listened to it more than the stupid CDs that he'd been forced to buy to listen to in the car over the years. There was nothing better than a vinyl record, skipping and rumbling as it spun. Nick flipped through his old records, having dug them all out. His parents had mailed them over a few months back at his request, and he was overjoyed to have the collection back in his hands.Saturday Night Fever8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
His eyebrows suddenly went up and he smirked, pulling out an old favorite. The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. A damned classic, and he used to worship the ground John Travolta walked on. He'd danced to a few of these tunes with old girlfriends in the day, and he was pretty sure he'd played Tony Manero in a theatre production of the old movie.
He put it on the turntable and nodded his head as the music started. The funky, disco music was so old-fashioned, but God did he love it. He found himself tapping his foot, singing along so

I said in the saferoom our first night,
You wear those dream clothes
Like a swan out of water.
Listen, you wool-feathered bastard,
My name, just for the record, is Ellis.
I can remember pretending
That your red silk tie is a real heart
That your raw wool suit is real flesh
That you could float beside me with a swan’s touch
Of casual satisfaction.
But not the swan’s blood.
Waking tomorrow, I remember only
Somebody’s feathers and his wrinkled heart
Draped loosely in my bed.

Ellis loved coming here for lunch on the weekends. Sometimes he'd go with Keith, or Dave, or the both of them. Today he was with Dave, while Keith was in the hospital due to yet another wild stunt. The two entered the little restaurant and seated themselves, the place not being terribly busy. The two chatted idly while they waited, and finally a waiter approached the table.
He had a big pout on his lips initially, bringing two glasses of water with him. His hair looked as though it had been slicked back this morning, but curls were beginning to pop up here and there towards the back. He must've been busy today.
"Welcome," he said plainly, setting the waters down with a 'clunk!' on the table, "What'll it be?"
Ellis had seen him a few times before. He was the grumpiest waiter he'd ever witnessed, yet he always did his job right. He made Ellis laugh with his sarcasm, though the waiter never seemed amused. The young me

It had been two years since they got the diagnoses which had said that she only had six mouths to live. Yet, he still didn't expect this.
Even at 84, Korra was still the same lively girl that he had met at 17. She would still wake him up in the morning by tickling his feet and drag him out in the frigid winter weather to go to the caravel that was always held in downtown Republic City. She raced Ikki's and Jinora's kids on her air scooter and would have small sparring sessions with Bumi's grandson.

It was about five in the morning. Nick never woke up at five in the morning. He wasn't much of a morning person, after all. Ellis was the one that got up early, never bothering to stay quiet, always singing loudly in the shower and slamming his dresser drawers as he looked for a clean pair of underwear. Nick would throw a pillow at him and curse, and Ellis would just laugh and pounce onto the bed, kissing him until he finally agreed to get out of bed.Daylight7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Nick hadn't even slept that night. He just lay there, leaning his elbow on the mattress and his head in his hand. Staring at Ellis. Staring at his curled up form, turned towards him, snoring so softly and looking so warm and trusting, comfortable and actually pretty cute (seeing as how he wasn't blabbing for once).
The older man hadn't slept because it was time to move on.

There was a reason for not letting Ellis come along grocery shopping. Amongst the hick's aggravating pleading and his pounding headache, Nick somehow managed to overlook those reasons, and allowed the kid to attend the store with him. Instantly, floods of regret drenched over him, as the hick bounced up and down, celebrating the fact he had annoyed the permission out of the older man. That childlike monster that lurked within his skeleton was on full form today. He could barely contain himself, his legs dancing all over the place, tempting Nick to put him on a leash.
"Goddamn it, Overalls." The conman groaned, watching the Georgian race towards the shopping carts. The older man's complaints usually fell on deaf ears when Ellis was around, as he was more than likely rambling on about something that was of complete disinterest to Nick.
"Ya' know this store reminds me of th' time ma buddy Keith and I " Nick had learnt to block it all out, for his own sanity's sake. He snatched the ne

The conman scanned the room and tried to locate where his clothes had ended up amongst the after math of his long night of passion with his Georgian lover. The rouge sun shot glistening rays of light through the boarded up window, so all the dust dancing and swirling around the room could be seen. The sun would rise swiftly now dawn had broken, giving the infected the advantage of hunting down the survivors, which meant it was time for the four of them to move again. It was a struggle in itself trying to uncover a safe place to rest, and even more of a challenge for the conman to get time alone with Ellis.
The two survivors had been lucky so far in not being sussed out by the others, but Nick wondered how long this would last. He was sure that Rochelle was growing more and more suspicious, and she always interrogated the conman for his reasons behind sleeping next to Ellis, and if the opportunity allowed it, to sleep in another room with the hick. Of course, this was wh

"Er, Nick?" Ellis repeated, in a soft tone. The conman exhaled heavily. Each time he slept, he hoped to awake to a different life. His opportunism had ran dry long ago, and even the concept of sleeping became meaningless. The dreams that had pacified him now haunted him. Every piercing screech, every bone crushing crack, every gasp of a dying breath all repeated and replayed whilst he slept. Each time he awoke, he relived those horrors.
"Mmh, yeah." He grumbled, carelessly squirming to face his lover. A faint comfort warmed him as their eyes lined up, and their cheeks momentarily brushed. As he scanned the hicks face,

The morning sun came shining through the window, warm and sweet on my skin. The bed cover was loose around my body and my eyes fluttered open.
My mind reminded me of last night, when Zuko came sneaking in to comfort me after the night's event.
Smiling softly, I rolled over to find an empty space; something I never wanted.
A piece of paper lay in Zuko's place and a small fire lily lay on top of it.
Picking it up, I read the words slowly:
I'm sorry I couldn't stay but I just wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. I have never believed I would fall for someone like you, someone so different from me. But I do, I love you with everything I have. I made you a bracelet, its on the small table. Just a little reminder of me. Don't be afraid of today. I will never be far behind you.

Mentions of Mystrade and hints of Sherlock/John
Summary: Mycroft and Lestrade decide to get back at Sherlock for annoying them by sending John a link to a certain video
Sherlock liked days like these. Which was surprising really, considering how horrifyingly domestic the scene was. Well, as domestic as it could get in the life of one Sherlock Holmes; the one and only consulting detective.
He was comfortable cuddled up in the corner of the couch that he had claimed to be 'his spot', fiddling with his phone, sending the occasional text to piss off either Mycroft or Lestrade (or both if he was right on their recent developed interest in each other, which of course, he was) with crap telly as comfortably annoying background noise.
John was in his own spot, leaning back lazily against the back of his chair, while typing away on his laptop. Probably adding the final touches to his latest blog. Ah yes, there it was. That decidedly final t

Not unless I arrange the blankets
Somehow I manage to mimic
The shape of her body
But I can't recreate
Or the way her chest
Moved softly against my back
With every measured
Most nights, I wake up
And she's not here
Maybe she got up
To get a drink of water
And I don't even know
How long she's been gone
But somehow I know
That she's never
Going to come back to bed
And if I would just reach over
And touch her side of the bed
I would know it was cold
But I'm afraid
I don't want to know she's gone
I don't want to know I can't have her back
And I'll fall asleep again
But most mornings,
I'll wake up thinking
She's still here
And I'll lie there
For just a moment
Wondering where she's gone
And then I begin to wonder
How long I've been alone

The clash with the seeker had been thunderous. After having hauled him into a building, providing Prowl and the children with a free path, I brought forth my Energon Axe and battled Starscream. He sought out methods to subdue me, opting for evasive tactics than engaging in close combat. He was persistent, but he knew he could not win this fight. The glare of his single optic is what betrayed his thoughts. His strengths never lay in servo-to-servo combat, but it made his assault all the more questionable. Decepticons, especially someone as conniving as Starscream, would never risk exposing their existence to humanity, not unless there was something at stake. Yet according to Prowl's intel, the Decepticons fired at will, destroying anything that came their way, without any particular goal.
Incapable of hiding my curiosity, I lowered my Energon Axe and sought out answers. "Starscream, your onslaught is uncoordinated and meaningless, and you of all Cybertronians should know that you cannot

In the morning I woke up to no one in the base. I was suprised I didn't see anyone around. As I walked up and down the corridors of the base. I did not see one face.... It was so quiet. I found Ratchet finally in the back of the base looking for a part to his new device he was making... called the energon scrambler. "With this device," Ratchet Explained to me " We can change raw energon into different types of energon to help us boost or overall abilities." I wasn't surprised at what Ratchet had said. He makes so many things from scratch, they always seem to impress me. "So uh.. Ratchet where is the rest of the crew at?" I asked while he was scouring for more parts to his device.
