The swordsman stood predictably voiceless.
"Ah don't tell me you can't stand a little outdoors stench either," Tunnel Rat bemoaned. Not too long ago, he'd actually been 'politely' asked to find somewhere to shower before even thinking of boarding the Coyote. It didn't smell that bad.
Receiving a small shake of the head, the shorter man wondered why Snake Eyes was blocking his way into the the truck. He obviously wanted something, but gave no indication as to what, and of course didn't say a single word either.
"So you can't say, like, anything, right?"
A curt nod.

It was nothing short of a miracle that the two men made it to the next town without killing each other. They didn't even argue, not once, restricting their communication to a few sentences at the most.
Grimmjow didn't really think about it, his mind already preoccupied with formulating plans on how to reach Ba Sing Se as quickly as possible. However, the rare instances it crept into his thoughts he questioned why he savored the comfort of their silence yet wished the orangette following his lead through the bamboo forest break it with one of his sarcastic comments. And then Grimmjow's stomach always did flips due to his realization that he was actually fretting over his feelings similar to a naive, lovesick youth.

Daniel muttered something that was completely unintelligible. Jack's smile spread even wider. He leaned against the door frame casually, his lupine grin matching the mischievous glitter in his eyes. He had been waiting for a moment like this ever since he had met the young archaeologist.

He left her, and her mother, when she was only an infant, but he is deep and secure within her memory. He is unforgettable.That Voice (Star Wars - Boba Fett, Ailyn)2 years ago in Drama More Like This
The only memory she has of her father is the memory of the night he left her forever.
What she first recalls, however, is her mother's voice, talking to him at the door: "What are you doing here?"
Her father's disembodied reply had been flat, almost mechanical, and as cold as the night outside. As a babe she had chilled to hear it, her whimpers silenced by its stark monotone. "Sintas," he said in the icy voice, "you will let me pass."
"If this is about your possessions, I threw them away."
"Did you, now? I don't think you disposed of all of them.'
There was then the sound of a slight scuffle, then a strange, inhuman visage came into her view, where it towered above her. She was lying on the floor on a thin blanket and could only stare up at him. He knelt down over her, until his blank mask filled her fi

--In Sapphire's Room--
“Lesson #4: be observant,” Sand said from the top of her bureau as Sapphire braided the quills on the right side of her face. “You have to slow down, take a deep breath, and watch what everyone else does first. Everybody you meet knows you don't belong, and if you keep acting too Atlantian somebody is going to notice. For example, that bow you gave the queen yesterday could have sealed your fate. It's a good thing she's done her best to forget everything about merfolk or else you would have been thrown in the dungeon.”
Sapphire's and her reflection's eyes popped wide in shock and she covered her mouth. 'Oh no! I didn't even think of that. If Queen Athena finds out what I am...will she have me executed?'

“For the love of Aulë will you stop fidgeting Kili!?” Fili snapped, his tone belied by his small smile. The heir to the throne was currently twisting his brother’s hair back into its customary braids. “Anyone would think that you were incapable of remaining seated in one place for an extended period of time”
“Well I did drive the elven guard to distraction when we were imprisoned in Thranduil’s dungeons” Kili mused, wincing when Fili gave the braid a warning tug. He chuckled at his own joke and allowed his brother to finish his hair. “I do like that Bombur’s throwing a feast to formally welcome Bilbo home”
“I quite agree with you, though I think a part of him will always be in the Shire” Fili said slowly, securing the braided hair with a silver clasp.
“But he has us” Kili said, a hint of a whine slipping into his voice.

The day when your life turned upside down.
The day when blood spilled onto your hands...and they never went away.
They never loved me. It was all a lie. I screamed, yelled, and cried just to have some sort of equality between my sister and me. What made her so special? Was I just a mistake? My so-called “parents” don’t want to listen to reason; only to their own ignorance. There never was fairness to begin with. A split of a second passed by when my head was turned forcefully with an unspeakable pain on the side of my face. Dad hit me. His own daughter. No. I’m not his daughter. I’m just some kid living in the same house. I caught sight of the knife dad uses for fishing. I’ll show him who’s stupid. It’s now or never as I grabbed the handle.

Wrong Place, Wrong TimeThere was a terrible event in the North-West of the city just days ago, in the small hours of last Sunday morning. The two girls were not drunk, but they were happy. They had spent an emotional evening celebrating the elder's birthday. They were on the main road, heading for a cab office nearby. They paid no heed to the dark sedan that was approaching them slowly.Wrong Place, Wrong Time2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The first thing anybody knew about what was going on, was when two deafening percussions assailed their ears. Immediately there was a mighty roar of acceleration. The sedan thundered into the night. The elder girl was prone on the sidewalk, her life blown away. You can imagine how a brief paralysis of shock gave way to a panicked bedlam, soon augmented by the converging klaxons of the first responders, medics, armed policemen.
As they woke, the city's sleeping denizens learned of this atrocity, and of the detective's first conclusion, that the dead girl was killed by “mistake”; those bullets were

"I said...KNEEL!" The horned man and his copies struck down their scepters to the ground. Everyone in the center of them fell silent and went onto their knees. He smiled at the sight. "Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel."

*underlined words are Sapphire's (Sylvia's) signs, italic words are thoughts*
It had taken her a couple days to simmer down enough to consider the truth of Queen Athena's words. The moment of revelation came when she was busy combing her quills and absently listening to another lesson from Sand. Once again she was thinking about what day it was and worrying that the month would be over before she knew it. Then Sapphire froze, staring at herself in the mirror.
'I have to stop thinking of myself!'
Ever since the beginning she had been so occupied with her feelings, her happiness, her short amount of time... For once she slowed down and wondered if she had truly traded her tail for Kaze's sake or her own. The answer was not very flattering. She had to admit she had leaped into the ordeal feeling, not thinking.

His pale blue coat reflected the fear he had inside him well, matching the color one would associate to someone who had just encountered a ghost. His dress shirt adorned with medals of valor did little to ease his fears as the mare beside him replied.

Sherlock Holmes had a heart. A strong, athletically trained (from all that running, climbing, and jumping of course) moderately healthy considering the abuse it had had to take, heart. After all, he was still young.
Sherlock Holmes' heart beat at fifty beats per minute when at rest, and upwards to near two hundred when he was running really hard. These were the facts. He'd never had a murmur or a skipped beat in his life- Sherlock's heart was as practical to his uses and as mechanical as the rest of him.
Or so he thought.
The first one to notice that Sherlock Holmes possessed a much more tender heart than anyone else ever thought was Mrs. Hudson. Sure, Mycroft in his own way had noticed a kind of vulnerable and soft spot near his brother's impenetrable center, but he possessed the same rational that Sherlock did and paid little attention. Mrs. Hudson on the other hand saw something in this callous young detective, the way his silvery eyes sparked with excitement when he would talk of h

They were the pounding feet through the cobbled streets,
Screaming out for everything.
They were the fleeting memories of a time long gone by,
Blown away in the wind to a far away sky,
Where the air is cold and the stars never shine.
Memories leave their traces behind,
The scars on my legs from a day long gone by.
I was climbing a rock,
That would forever leave me with a flaw.
They were the youthful cries, screaming out.
They were the glowing eyes, on a fearless march,
Racing down the cobbled streets, blazing out for all to see.
The beacon of light that is now dying out,
I never wanted it to go away.
Everything is changing at a speed I can’t match,
I am drifting further every day.
It makes me want to cry that the best and worst days of my life,
Are being pushed away with every day that passes by.
I want to hold on
But each day I lose more ground.
Soon they will be gone without even a sound.
