"You have six new messages." The cheery and all-too-familiar voice on Cloud's phone said. He'd had his phone off for the past few hours, after calling home that morning. "Message one."
"The kids really miss you," Tifa's voice said, cutting straight to the chase as she always did when she called lately. "Cloud, you said you wouldn't do this again. At least when we were losing out to Aerith's memory I understood. Call me back."
"End of message one. Message two."
"Tourism is down eighteen percent in Wutai! Finally!" Yuffie's voice was shrill and delighted over the phone, full of enthusiasm and energy. "Hope you haven't been eaten by the larvae yet. Come and visit some time! I promise not to count you in the tourist data, okay?"
"End of message two. Message three."
"Spiky!" Barrett sounded angry. He often did, but this was not the enjoyable kind of annoyance he tended to carry. "You better be getting home to visit my girl soon! I'll come for you if you make her cry!"

Bite through my spine with shark like jaws

Dirty for existing.
Dirty for loving you.

"I love you most when you ache on the inside."
I have never hated myself more.

Tips from a Writer part ITips from a Writer part I3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
So, I've been recently asked by my good friend Sea-Chan ( Link in the description. Go look her up you derps. She's awesome.) to part with the secrets to my writing. Since I've been asked this by a few people, I'll put it here (it's also just long in general, so this helps.) for any aspiring author that's plagued by the dreaded writer's block!
1) Q: How long do you write in a day, and when do you do it?
Generally, I try to give myself a few hours a day. During weekdays when I have school, I dedicate two or three hours to writing when I get home. Weekends, I write whenever I feel like it.
During school, though, I keep a pencil and notebook handy just in case I get an idea I don't trust my memory, see. The moment I get an idea, I drop whatever I'm going and write it down. Whether it be in point form or details doesn't matter get the point across!
During holidays, that time fluctuates. I sometimes go days without writing and then write for eight hours straight (that us
Forever NeverlandGrace disliked Tinkerbell. She disliked her because she had wings and she could fly whereas Grace stayed on the ground, catching fireflies. The fireflies, in turn, made it easy because they knew she would let them go. She would stare at their radiant light in awe and try to understand how something so little could shine so very bright.Forever Neverland1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
She tried to pretend the bread she had in the mornings was ice cream flavoured, and even imagined her little brother had never been taken from them but had been enthralled and forever lost in Neverland. When she tried to explain this to her mother, her mother would look away quietly, and sometimes, rise with a quiet shudder...and leave the room.
For a little girl who had the hope of the world resting quite easily on her head as a crown, she knew. She knew that one day, he would come for her and maybe, maybe they could be together again like they were in her dreams.
As she grew older, she slept on a bed of green, with a desk of wood and a massive window t

He was driven by an overwhelming sense of fear. Despair. Echoes of the agony he'd felt just hours before.
His feet pounded against the hard ground, crashing through crackling grass made heavy and wet by the rain pouring from the sky. The clouds were dark and menacing above him, and white mist swirled around his feet.
He hoped he was imagining the sound of pursuers, the white noise of the rain muffling his ears. The blood roaring in them didn't help his hearing either.
Rain caked his long, dark hair to his face in thick strands. Droplets clung to his skin and hoodie, speckling the scorpion tattoo on his neck. The one he'd saved up all his money to get, only to be hurt afterwards, hurt by the very same person who'd inked it onto his skin.
His hands wiped the water from his eyes, half tears, half rain. It didn't do much.
He saw something familiar in the distance, a hulking mass of rusted trains, all retired from the railroad long ago. And, nestled in between two of the largest cars, a spa
Teaching Summer to BreatheSummer will always remind me of hot, sweltering nights spent drinking sangria, through the dripping fairy lights of your bedroom window. A sticky, starry sky looked back at us, the glow of the moon almost golden in the heat. Fourteen meant we weren't growing up fast enough and a liquor cabinet key seemed to hold the answer to that problem.Teaching Summer to Breathe2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
You taught me how to drink that night.
(You also showed me how beautiful it was to just hold your breath till your head spins and reality seems like it is going to fade further and further away.)
Six summers ago I met a boy who liked to tell me how much like summer I was. He was big boned and thin skinned and the first time I told him he wasn't mine to keep, he left handprints on my skin that reminded you of a canvas covered in autumn leaves that you saw in New York. Then you proceeded to break every single window in his house (Yes, even the one in the attic he loved so much.)
You taught me how to smile through heartbreak that night.

Summary: Trying to fight of loneliness, Yazoo finds affection with a long-time admirer
A/N: At first this one was almost NC-17 .but I freaked. Hope you like it anyway! (Or because of that )
For: FrostofoblivionIV:'s crack fic challange!
Yazoo stared out over the hot and dusty plains surrounding the Valenwind home, chewing gently on his lower lip as he frowned in the merciless sun. The farm house was unusually empty and quiet, with Kadaj away in Midgard to meet Reno and Loz and Vincent away in the pickup to help Shera with something concerning her well. Cid was tinkering with the Highwind and even the kittens were nowhere to be seen probably sleeping somewhere in a patch of sunlight.
It left Yazoo all alone in the house, and he didnt much like it. With no one around to tease or talk to he felt lonely and bored and those werent feelings he was used to.
Your BonesSaltpan white,Your Bones2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Grained with innocence that runs in years
Like the tree rings we counted as children.
Your bones are beautiful, she murmurs to the pale jigsaw.
They hold no regret.
They hold no memories
Except of falling off roofs
And the places we should not have been.
There is a softness that underlies cold rigidity:
A boy who spoke without smiling,
A God who remained unseen.
Quiet skeletons lie down serenely while the rest of us washes away,
Awaiting some change in the weather.
The clavicle curves aside,
Cresting like an ocean wave,
The sternum shielded your soul.
She used to love pressing her fingertips against your acromion
As it yearned towards the vertebrae of your spine.
Reaching for something.
Your gentle bones with their secret, whispered names
Olecranon, ilium, femur
They hurt her now.
You never let her see your grace.
Shes left with just the framework.

Warning: Unlike the other Family Bliss ficletts, this one isnt supposed to be funny. It will also contain some hugging and bed-sharing on the Remnants account, but this is not supposed to be interpreted as Remnantcest, although I can, of course, not stop you if you insist. They will be dressed, though.
Pairing: Valenwind, also featuring Kadaj, Yazoo and Loz, but no Remnantcest.

Summary: What about Rude?
A/N: I have thrown this idea in the scraps once, but the damn plot bunny wouldn't leave me alone....
Kadaj was too far off in the warmth of afterglow; that was probably why he hadn't noticed the door to Reno 's apartment opening, nor the smell of cooking. Not until the both of them staggered out giggling and still fondling a bit to Reno's kitchen, looking for something to satisfy their bellies now that other parts of their bodies had got their share.
But that idea took quite another turn as they found the kitchen already occupied, Rude standing by the stove with an apron on.
"Hey, partner!" Reno lit up, slapping the bald Turk on his suit-clad ass. "What's cooking? Smells delicious."
"Pancakes." Rude rumbled, leaning over for a quick and rather chaste kiss. "How are you, Kaddy?" He tried to ruffle the Sephlings hair, but Kadaj slid away with a hiss.

Cid was sleeping peacfully until he felt the blankets pulled off of him. He turned over to find Vincent shaking.
"Hm? Vince?" he said still half asleep. Realizing Vincent was asleep, he realized he must have been cold or something. He turned the gunman over to see he was crying in his sleep. Cid ran his hand through Vincent's hair. "C'mon, Vince. Ya gotta wake up."
Vincent shot up and looked around the room in a panic. He was sweating and the tears were now streaming down his face. Cid sat up and put a hand on his lover's shoulder only to have it smacked away. Vincent, not realizing where he was, backed up causing him to fall out of the bed.
"Vince, what the fuck's goin' on?!"he saked as he climbed off the bed and sat beside the frightened man.

There were a yellow rubber duck in Loz bathtub. He glared at it, but it just bobbed around cheerfully amongst the suds, smiling idiotically. It was a present, from Yazoo, of course. Kadaj hadnt helped by sticking two pins in the ducks head, declaring that it would look more menacing with horns. It didnt look menacing to Loz. It looked like a yellow rubber duck with two pins stuck to its head. He sighed. Seriously, how childish did his brothers think he was, anyway?
Ignoring the duck, he sunk deeper into the warm, soapy water with a little sigh of pleasure. Captain Highwind had gone into a fit over the long showers, but hadnt said anything about baths. Possibl
