My Girl Lola I pause outside the door to her cabin, trying to psych myself up. Come on Vega, you can do this! I tilt my head side to side and roll my shoulders, stretching as if I'm headed for the boxing ring. Of course, after talking to Shepard I usually feel like I've been sparring.My Girl Lola2 years ago in Romance More Like This
I have a crush on Lola. There, I admit it. Those flashing eyes, easy smile, and wicked tongue have me hooked. The way she moves, the way she fights, the way those tendrils of hair escape her ponytail and curl beside her face... okay, it might be a bit more than a crush. But am I anything more than a buddy to her? I think I might have been until today. I bite back a groan and let my head drop back, staring at the ceiling. Stupid, stupid, stupid!
I was down in the refugees' docking bay, getting inked. I'd finally decided to accept the invitation to the N7 program and thought that deserved some fanfare. It looks great by the way, a giant "N7" across my back. Anyway, I was s

"Nothing." Masato finally turned away from the window, although its seemed he didn't know where to go afterwards.
"You worry too much," Ren said. He knew his roommate and friend looked cool and composed, but inside he cared a lot about things.
"And you don't worry at all," Masato countered. That also seemed true, but Masato also knew that Ren hid a lot of his real thoughts from anyone else.

"Maker, hear me."
A soft, lilting brogue, rising gently from the central mezzanine of Kirkwall's chantry, caused Grand Cleric Elthina to pause her steps and turn. She let her eyes move sadly toward the kneeling boy she had raised as her own; the boy who was now a man, she reminded herself with a soft shake of her head. Sebastian seemed to spend so many hours on his knees these days that she wondered how he was able to keep up with the lifestyle Cortland Hawke's companionship demanded of him. When would the lad see that his service to the Maker shone through in his every action, his every word? Elthina knew as well as anyone that a holy duty can take many forms and, for someone such as the Vael Prince, that duty could be performed as admirably on his feet as on his knees.
But he would not hear her.
He had ever been a stubborn child. At the whim of the winds of change, but ready to fling himself body and soul in whichever direction they took him. She prayed each day that the winds tearin
Pro-ChoiceYour life is just a string of choicesPro-Choice2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Held together by the delicate stitches of breath.
Every choice I make is mine and mine alone
And this body is nobody’s but my own.
There you go;
And just so you know,
I’m all for it.
It’s not ‘murder’,
It’s not a crime
I think it’s perfectly fine
And if you don’t,
Well, that’s you.
If I get raped,
Or an accident happens,
And I want an abortion;
I’ll get one.
And after all’s said and done,
I won’t feel guilty.
My body, my rules
Your body, your rules.
It’s not alive,
It’s a tiny clump of cells
Not even aware
It wouldn’t even care.
If you’re against abortion?
But my body’s mine,
Hers is hers and your is yours;
Don’t shut other people’s doors.

Or do I only get that when I’m down on my knees,
In between your thighs

You’re the gent and, well, me, I’m sleazy,
You say so to your friends;
Will you cry
To them when this, us, ends?
Tell me you need me
Tell me you don’t.
Tell me you love me
Tell me you won’t
Leave me here
In the ash, the dark, with all the broken things
Just like me and you.
I really can’t stand you at all
But every time you smile I just fall
Down on my knees,
In between your thighs
You’re not like all the other guys.
Tell me you need me
Tell me you don’t.
Tell me you love me
Tell me you won’t
Leave me here
In the ash, the dark, with all the broken things
Just like me and you.

And us, we’re set to be implosive,
This is warfare
Yeah, this is war,

UlquiHime: Why she didn't save him.If you came here from TV Tropes, please note that the person who linked to my essay there is missing the entire point and probably has something against UlquiHime to begin with, hence the snide and disrespectful summation of my essay.UlquiHime: Why she didn't save him.4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
I've long pondered the question...why, after healing Loly and Menoly (TWICE,) Orihime simply didn't try to heal Ulquiorra, even after he reached out to her.
It can't be something so simple as "Ulquiorra was too goddamn strong to survive that fight and Kubo had no where to put him in the Fullbringer Arc." That just seems like bad storytelling. But I think I may have finally figured it out. (I was talking about this on my IchiHime thing before and it just suddenly clicked.)
An important thing to FIRST take into consideration is what Kubo himself considers The Heart to be in his story, because without an understanding of what the author is trying to do, analyzing the story itself becomes pointless.

As the ship landed Commander Shepard helped up Garrus with whatever strength you could call strength, he was injured and she wanted to do everything she could to help him. Liara followed them looking left and right as her mind went on a frenzy. Commander Shepard felt her eyes starting to seep out with tears but she fought them back as the back end of the ship opened and soldiers poured out.
“Come on,” Commander Shepard roared at Liara. They were heading towards the back of the open ship, as the sounds of lasers roared above them and the Beam echoed throughout their ears. As the men came out they fired standing there on the open pad, enemies approaching fast. Commander Shepard had no time to think about the decision she was about to make; she had no time. “Here, take him…” Commander Shepard said in a weak voice, all her strength was near gone but s
JusticeIs this Justice?Justice4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I am the one
Watching the scene before me
The people I kill
Both guilty and innocent
Or is this me?
Am I the one
Or is it
The other worldly spirit
Who became my demon
Because of me
He doesn't know the difference
He doesn't know
That he has changed, became something
And no longer my friend
But the Vengeance consumes me
Is this Justice?
Watching as my hands kill
The one who I was trying to protect
Unable to stop him from
Sealing our fate
And horrifying our friends
Tonight this is me
I will give her another chance
And escape the interwoven judgement
It is not Justice
But my decision
Bad things happen
When good people do nothing
I will do something
For better or for worse
Justice and Vengeance
Neither Spirit or Demon

Clair de LuneSometimes I imagineClair de Lune4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That when Debussy penned this movement,
He hesitated with the title.
"Clair de Lune" moonlight.
Perhaps he didn't have the courage
To add an "E" to the end of her name,
Immortalizing her in music.
The gentle chords pouring
From his piano describing
The peace with which she slept.
"Claire of the Moon."
She was the embodiment of dreams.
Indeed, with her hair spread out
In messy ringlets across the pillow,
The pale, spring-time glow
Of the moon hanging heavy
In the April sky
Gently casting its cool light
Through the half-open window,
Onto her faintly blushing cheek.
She looked ethereal,
Like a flower that opens for moonlight alone.
Imbued in this music is the tenderness
With which he desired
To move a stray curl from where it lay
Draped across her brow.
As the movement sweetly closes,
She gently wakes, smiling,
As I gently wake from the scene I created.
This exists in my imagination only,
The romantic in me dreaming
With the fictional Claire.

He's constantly between flying off the handle with rage or being the most cuddle-prone troll in existence. His moods can change at any moment but you've sorta learned to deal with each set.
It was defiantly better than hanging with Eridan, who for whatever reason was being extremely depressing and socially awkward.
But this has led the two males to constantly fight over you, and who would win your heart. It can be overwhelming at times.
But sometimes Sol he gets into these periods of long reflection as he watches the ocean.
Something within his dual-colored eyes seems lost and when he glances to you it's as if you're someone else. He is happier during those times, but you hate to portray yourself as someone else.

He had cast everyone else aside in favour of the Avatar, for ensuring her safety, for reassuring himself that she was actually there, blue eyes sunken and tired and dusky skin torn in multiple areas, but still there.

Her steps were faster this visit however, and not because she was in a hurry, but because she was excited. She had seen something she had hoped to spot for nearly two years now, and she wanted to know if her eyes had played a cruel trick on her.
