I knew pain, neglect, distrust.
How weak, how penitent am I
that I bow my pride to you.
Please, will you offer relief
if I beg and flatter ‘til suns
fade and moons crumble to dust,
for me, this foolish pained man?
Inside I am sore, so sorry-
weary of living beside my hateful,
lonely shadow who dares not reckon
for me: unholy, empty, impure.
But you, my dear, fill me up
to the brim with cool, clear
please ease the ache of my dried insides.

For your pains, love, presented
with razor-sweet tongue-crippling smiles

to soothe you to the gallows.
Savor the metallic-laced taste
masked by succulent shine,
the tantalizing innocence of
young, freckled flesh.
Walk into the wolf-trap
and writhe no more,
but know that an audience watches
you come undone in shame.
No fortified diamond,
no silver plea can loosen the grip
of the noose
which you so willingly knelt for.

Pairings: Harry/Louis LARRY STYLINSON! Bromance with hints of something more...?
Summary: Louis is stressed and takes it out on Harry. But can Zayn's cheeky dare stop the bickering?
"HARRY!" Louis bellowed down the stairs of the house he and Harry shared together.
"What?" asked Harry, coming into the hall as Louis stomped down the steps with just a towel wrapped around his waist. Louis stopped short of the last few steps.
"Why is my hair gel almost empty?" Louis practically spat. Harry looked up at his older friend indignantly.
"How should I know?!"
"Well you're the only one who must've been using it!"
"I haven't touched your silly hair gel!"
"Have!" The two glared at each other.
"Louis, what the hell has got in to you recently? First you argue with me over whether you put the milk or water in first to make tea, then you have a go at me for singing too loudly and now you're accusing me

"What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!" Louis panicked screams pulled me away from the feverish nightmare I had been having. I opened my eyes slowly, seeing a naked Louis with his hands put on each side of his head, kneeling beside a naked, pale Liam. A deep, dark red wound glowed on his neck, blood still flowing out of it. Louis body started shaking and cramping frantically, his breath coming out in short shallow breaths as his body started transforming. I quickly rose from the floor; my head started spinning from the sudden moment, not minding that I slipped around different colored fur tousles, dipped in mine and the other lad's blood. I went over to Louis and wrapped my arms around his shaking body.
"Easy Louis, calm down..." I murmured, holding him as he shivered even more. He gurgled as his face started to break and mould itself into something else.
I looked panicked around for any sign of dark colored curls but Harry was nowhere to be found.

My worst fear right now was transforming into a wolf, not only did it look extremely painful and horrifying, transforming meant complete amnesia and I didn't want to lose myself. I wanted to be me, Niall James Horan and I wanted to be the one that could help my band mates and my boyfriend. I was the only one that could help us from this madness.
When Liam had started to transform I had figured out that the transformation into a wolf is triggered randomly but mostly by cold, so I had rushed to my bedroom to fetch my still bloody blanket and then I had enveloped Liam with it. As soon as he had the blanket around him, the fur that had been starting to grow from the holes of his skin reverted back and was replaced by new skin and his body stopped its cramping and he finally began to relax.
While I was stopping Liam's transformation Louis was just staring at me with big frightened eyes and a wide open mouth.

My friends, Liam and Harry were walking down the street. “Are you sure you two are ready? I mean Louis and I have been together longer and we haven’t even thought of having a baby yet, we aren’t ready,” Harry told Liam and me.
“So? Just because you and Louis aren’t ready, doesn’t mean Liam and me shouldn’t be too,” I told Harry as I kissed Liam. Then, there was a bright light. We all looked down and an angel came down from heaven with a basket and cradling a towel, I guess. She landed and looked at me. “Are you Zayn Malik?” She asked.
“Yea. Who may you be?” I asked.
“I am not allowed to say my name, which is a sin up in the heavens. I bring thee a miracle, for she cant like up in the heavens,” The angel told me. She gave me the basket the and the towel, which now I think has the baby.

Finally, the days of the dark signers were over, and we had manged to defeat Rex Goodwin through the skin of our teeth. I shall never forget the moment when I saw the heart-warming sight of Yusei's Saviour Star Dragon flying over the satellite and Neo Domino City.
When the first sunrise was visible and Saviour Star Dragon had dissapeared into the distance, I felt all warm and fuzzy inside. I couldn't stop smiling, Luna and Leo were cheering and everyone was smiling along with me, and I think we all knew that this was the start of a brand new adventure. (Hopefully a better one too!)
The city is now back to normal and most of are sat outside a cafe waiting for Jack Crow and Yusei to arrive. (They're late!) I had a thought as to where they might be. They were probably at the other end of the bridge in the satellite. There was now a bridge connecting the satellite to Noe Domino City. (I was right, because that's exactly where they were.)

With a remote control in his hand, Soul lazily flipped through every single channel on TV only to finally realize that there was completely nothing of his interests on the shows playing. Back in the old days, he would be amused by the fact that he gets to see himself on TV for being one of the people to help defeat the Kishin. Him and his gang, full-on working together to beat the evil Kishin. Those were the days of full action. Now Soul is finally a Death Scythe but instead of becoming Shinigami's death scythe, he was told to stay by Maka because they made a great team. Maka was the one who made the final blow and defeated the Kishin after all.

Mia stared intently at her target, her front legs perched on top of Link’s thigh. Then, hesitantly, she reached for it, only to quickly draw her paw back before touching it. She repeated this process a few more times, as if trying to build her courage; then, finally, she touched the end of Link’s scarf, catching her claws in the fibers as she did so.
Meanwhile, Link, who had been watching the scene unfold from his seat on the couch, couldn’t help but laugh as the little grey cat played with the end of his scarf, scratching at it and batting it to and fro. “Oh, I see how it is,” he said, giving Mia a tender pat on the head, “you just like my scarf, don’t you?”
“As opposed to what?” asked Zelda, poking her head out from the kitchen, a sheet of freshly baked sugar cookies in her mitted hands and a small grin on her face at the sight of Link and Mia.

"Be quiet now, ok Yusei." he said, setting me down on the wet earth. I looked up at Kalin, as he quickly hid his runner in some bushes, far from where we were. What was Kalin planning? Did he know I was able to feel again? I sat up on my bed, since my back was getting all wet. He ran back over to me, and sat down before me.

The lump inside my throat grew bigger and bigger, the tears in my eyes begged to be realized. Ayumi looked at me as she put her hand on mine as she stroked it.
''Don't worry mommy, Uncle Soul will always be with us.'' She put her other hand over her chest where her heart would be. ''He will be right here, remember?'' Great, she had to comfort me instead of me comforting her. I didn't like the fact that she was stronger than me at the moment, I am the mother and I am suppose to be the one comforting and protecting her, not the other way around.

Soul spent most of his preteen years insulting his Meister by the way she looked. He called her names along the lines of 'flat chest' or 'tiny tits' and commented on her 'fat ankles' and her 'lack of sex appeal', and no matter how many times she reacted by hitting him with a Maka-Chop, he was stupid enough to keep doing it as the days went by. He noticed that it hurt her feelings, but he was just too dumb and too naïve to realize that it was much deeper than that.
Honestly, the only reason why he did this to her was because he was trying hard to distract his mind from thinking about her so much, but by the time they got their very first kishin egg, he'd already fallen and it was too late to turn back. No matter how many times he called her a bookworm or flat chested, there would be no denying his feelings in the near future.
Honestly, how could someone like him even fall for a nerd like Maka Albarn? He was a cool guy. He had class, he was a fan of smooth and f

His body rose and the light extended from his limbs for a few minutes before ceasing as he was somehow laid gently back to the stone floor. The rain had slowed to a drizzle, but Rose didn't notice. A new man was lying in his place. This new man had brown hair that spiked despite the rain and dark brown eyes instead of the soft blue eyes and big ears she was used to. He picked himself off the ground.
"Rose...it's me," he said, walking toward her.
She looked at him, not believing, and lifted a hand to touch the spikey hair. He looked like he was willing her to believe. Then something clicked, the light and wisdom behind his eyes were the same. "It is you," she said. She touched his face then lay her hands on his chest, above his two hearts.

After we had a few rounds of lovemaking I put on some panties and a black t-shirt, Soul took on some boxers and before we went back to bed we opened the door so we could hear if Ayumi screamed or called for us.
I looked to my left and Soul had his eyes closed, I guess he was still tired from our active night.
