As Rin descended the stairs, she could see the cast members bustling around, fumbling to get ready for the first rehearsal of "The Riddler Who Can't Solve Riddles." However, unlike the first time she walked down the stairs in her costume, not as many glances turned in her direction, and those who did look at her whispered with apprehensiveness in their eyes. Ever since the masquerade ball, Rin had been the talk of rumors. The most popular subject of gossip was the conflict between her, Kaito, and the Opera Ghost. Some expressed deep concern, and others were extremely suspicious of her. Four months ago, Rin would have fretted over this endlessly, but instead she found herself being rather indifferent to it allin fact, it was a little amusing.
In the midst of the crowd, she could see Miku peeking out from a corner from backstage. Following her gaze, Rin saw that she was trying to catch a glimpse of Kaito, who was out on stage being more rough than

The morning smelt of spring, the sweet aromas wafting from the waking flowers. The many butterflies and honeybees made their rounds, sharing a kiss with the welcoming anthers. The vast garden bustled with life.
Among the life forms was a young nation who appeared to any normal human to be no older than five. Draped in a soft periwinkle, satin dress with two white buttons in the center of the bodice, the child skipped down the cobblestone pathway with a large smile on his face. The auburn hairs waved about his forehead with each bounce of his tiny feet.
To the other nations of the world this little boy was known as Northern Italy, but when in mixed company he simply went by the name Feliciano. Italy liked being called by his human name due t

Mr. Britain scoffed at his former Colony's outlandish idea ("Yet another half-wit scheme ") and it all went downhill from there, much to the entertainment of Mr. Russia.The Kids Are Not Alright2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Just another day at the World Conference.
Raivis Galante, the Nation of Latvia, used Mr. Russia's lack of attention on himself and his fellow Baltics to slip away before Mr. Germany could once again restore order, making a beeline for where he'd seen another familiar face.
His best friend Peter Kirkland, the (Micro)nation of Sealand, sat at the table in the main lobby, enjoying his usual ice cream float and swinging his legs under his usual chair. Seeing Raivis, the blonde's cerulean eyes took on a joyful light as he waved.

Piano chords drifted through the house, a beautiful melodic piece being played. Green eyes brightened as the chords got quicker, the owner of the eyes stopping to turn towards the sound.
"He really is amazing at the piano." Walking to the room a smile broke out on the woman's face as she watched the figure bent over the piano, nimble fingers flying over the ivory producing the melodic noise.
"You're amazing Roderich."
Turning to her the man smiled softly, his face full of love. Instantly guilt pooled in her stomach as she smiled back. She knew that look shouldn't be directed at her. It just shouldn't. He loved her, that much was obvious. And she loved him as well, but not in the way he felt about her. The secret she had carried for many years, and would always carry silently was enough to devastate him, she knew that. But it did nothing to stop it. She was in love with his enemy. She was deeply in love with Gilbert Beilschmidt. It had started when they were children, she thought there
APH: Just this once"Did you get beat up again?" Lovina watched Antonio drag himself in, covered in bruises and cuts, bleeding on the floor she'd just cleaned earlier that morning. "Some boss you are, can't even hold your own in a fight." She put her small hands on where her hips would be if she had them and watched him pull himself upright, using a nearby table for balance.

"I'm home, Lovina," he told her, smiling despite the pain he was in. Her brown eyes widened more than she thought them capable of. He could smile? Even when he was hurt and she greeted him so coldly?
"W-Well " she said, blushing lightly, "At least you made it in one piece..." She shuffled off to go back to her duties, trying not to think of the blood on the floor or his smile.
Later, she came to his rooms to do a bit of tidying up and found him sitting on the sofa trying to bandage his wounds.

"Quite an interesting show." Gakupo said trying to diffuse tension.
He was performing at the Summer Festival with several other Vocaloids and various bands in an impromptu concert. None of the performers had any time before hand to practice their songs or dance moves. That was just the way Gakupo liked it.
He hid off stage in a little corner where he could watch the performances while waiting for his own.
He looked out into the crowd and saw hundreds of expectant spectators all clad in their festival kimonos; mere shadows in a lurching wave that billowed out into the park where the stage was set.

His hand gently moved the brush over the almost finished paperwork as his other hand made sure that the ink did not soil his shihakusho. This was the last report that he needed to do before he could declare that he was done in the administrative office. He was alone. It always seemed like he was alone in the room with nothing but his own breath to deter the eerie silence that he was used to after all these years of being a captain. As his slender hand shifted the brush to motivate the bristles to make one last stroke on the paper, a relieved sigh was released before preparing to put things away. Sometimes he had to ponder as to why he wanted his lieutenant to help with the work; all she did was make the day harder.
"Taichou!" Her voice ringed merrily down the hall from his closed office doors. It was more like nails on a chalkboard, causing him to cringe in dismay for her sudden approach as she opened the sliding door. "Taich

"Why do you have to be such an idiot?" Neru retaliated, glaring fiercely at Len. His expression of extreme annoyance mirrored hers. This meant that Neru's face was all scrunched up, while Len's face was a furious red. Right now the two were bordering on the line of all-out rage.
Len was the first to break the angry silence, "You're so―"

Can I Have This Dance?I stood to the side and watched as the people twirled and moved together, as one on the dance floor. I ran my hand through my crimson spikes wondering why I even came here. I hated wearing tuxes, and the fire red tie around my neck was suffocating me. The room was hot from all the people packed like sardines in the small gym in our school. I was about to leave when I saw a boy sitting in a chair with his elbows on his knees and his cheek laying in his right palm, looking at the dance floor just as enthusiastic as I had been. He was barely average height, had a fragile feminine figure, blonde spiky hair that seemed to defy gravity, piercing blue pool eyes that you could get lost in, simple black dress pants, and a plain white shirt that wasnt tucked in and the top few black circles were unbuttoned.

The eleventh was the only exception with Ikkaku and Yumichika there. On arrival back to the academy, they had found lists on the wall of who was to go where. One group would be remaining in the academy, not deemed ready for squad life, the next were all regarded as potential fourth squad and asked to remain in lessons for the next couple of days to learn some more advanced kido. The longest list was to go to another hall, where they were to be inspected by the fukutaichos of the two or three squads the teachers had deemed them most suited to. The final and smallest group stood with Karin in the room she was in now, composed of those who had battled the hollows or who had shown particular prowess during their classes, just over ten in all.

Memories flashed through your mind suddenly, memories showing images of things you had so desperately been trying to forget the last three years. A winter storm. A looming semi-truck.

Kiku was hugging you.
His head was rested slightly on your shoulder ,still fast asleep, and his body was pushed against yours, which must've been the pressure you'd felt after waking. To be specific, you were pretty much in a spooning position.
You felt your face heat up quickly and attempted to remove his arms from around you so that he didn't wake up and become horribly embarrassed at what he unconsciously did. His hold on you was surprisingly tight though, so you couldn't pry him off without risking waking him up in the process. You just let yourself go limp again instead, feeling his warm breath on your neck.
Why was he hugging you? Did he usually do this? What happened to his personal space? Too many questions flooded your mind as you laid on the bed staring at clock, givi

Even though Marta knew that they had not even gone passed the castle walls, she had already felt an openness. The wind was brushing against her cheeks and whistling through her hair. The chill that shivered down her spine was somehow exhilarating rather than uncomfortable. Already a twinge of excitement began to overtake her spirit. She listened to her own breath that seemed to harmonize with Emil's as they hurriedly traveled farther away from the castle. Marta wanted to take the handkerchief off that instant. She had never been this far away from the castle before. When she had asked Emil about taking the handkerchief off just a little bit early, he had immediately turned her down.

Yao lets his slender finger trace the gentle slope of your nose, the tip dotted with crimson. In his other hand rests a small tourné knife, the blade delicate, curved, and stained with a dark, sinister red. He skims his palm over your cheek and lets it rest there before pulling away to smile in satisfaction. Carefully reaching around your head, he holds the blade to your ear and shears the tip off with a slow and meticulous precision. Yao draws away with the flesh in his hand, admiring his work.
He does the same with the other ear, and carefully places the tips at his feet. Yao rises from his kneeling position and looks through the window, huffing in an irritated sort of way at the soft light of the moon. Streams of gentle light streams through the glass, illuminating the limp strands of your hair and your blood-stained corpse.

Often times she was rebuked for this by her father, King Brute, for her rather straightforward and sudden personality.

Four years after the war, Sokka decided to travel with Toph.
It a simple idea really the universe seemed to always pair him up with his best friend, not that he would ever complain. After spending a long time in the Southern Water Tribe, helping rebuild his village (and getting over a pretty harsh break up with a girl he still managed to be friends with), it only made sense that he would go with her.
