not knowing there is no luck in the break.
her veins are unanswered prayers
her lungs an apology sent as letters to heaven,
hoping God will forgive her for being a continual disappointment.
her head is a phonebooth for all the thoughts nobody's picking up on.
the the sadness is sinking her again.
so when she leaves at midnight to longboard to the ocean,
go with her.
when she tries to climb bridges,
don't let her.
when she's drinking cold tea and playing daughter,
it means she's trying to pull her head together.
when she's in the bathroom praying to the toilet,
decide to knock.
when she avoids you,
hide her blades.
she doesn't have the will to fight anymore.
so on the bad days, fight for her.

I wrapped my jacket tightly around my shoulders as the cold air swirled in pretty patterns, leaving its icy kisses on my cheek. I turned out of the diner car park, bringing my scarf up over my mouth and nose, breathing into it so my face was warm. The chilly February night embraced me, but I wasn’t fazed by the darkness. I heard footsteps behind me, but paid no mind to them. I’d had a good shift at work today, it was pay day and my payslip envelope was a little thicker than usual, so I had one more reason to be happy this evening. Charlie, my boss had complained lightly about his wife’s ridiculous cravings during her pregnancy, but the way his eyes lit up when he spoke about her showed that he didn’t mind at all. I smiled as I walked down the country road, the diner I worked in was quite far out from town, and the main customers were truck drivers with protruding beer bellies. I thought of the mountain of school work waiting

Strongarm crouched, pivoting her fist before her arm shot out, quick and powerful, striking the target dummy on one of the labeled weak points. With a loud crack, the seams on the dummy's head split as it dented in completely.
Strongarm straightened in surprise, whirling and lunging for the tiny bot that had snuck up behind her. "Arcee! Arcee, didja hear the good news?"
Arcee vented harshly, wiggling in the tight hug uncomfortably. "Ow! Yes, I did, that's why I'm here."
Strongarm murmured apologetically, curling the flat of one forearm under Arcee's aft and settling her to sit in the crook of her elbow. Her grin grew when she felt a slender arm curl around her neck.

STUFF: Yes, another one. Go ahead and try to stop me from writing these. This is a fanfiction based on the videogame series known as Star Fox, particularly based on the game Star Fox Command. This three-parter is a standalone, it won't tie into SUS or my other stories. And yeah, you know the drill, I don't own Star Fox, Nintendo does. On that note, Rare and Namco don't own Star Fox either. Just saying.
Blast it, now what am I going to do?
Krystal pounded a fist against a patch of bare metal on her Cloudrunner fighters dashboard, frustration fueling the move. Her chest was aching as she gasped for breath, her throat was dry from her shouts of rage, and she could feel very painful indentations in her fingers where she gripped the trigger too rigorously.

STUFF: This story is in its own little world of continuity. It is set right before, and during Star Fox Command. It follows a hybrid path of endings "Good-bye Fox" and "Lucy and Krystal" if you must know. The character of Mary McCloud was created by me. All others were created by Nintendo.

There it is right where it always was. One man, an orange vulpine, continued his steady pace as he walked through a seemingly endless stretch of verdant grasses, heading for a distant house. He had traveled through woods and over small streams to get here, enjoying the beauty of the countryside. Taking a quick look into the overcast sky, with white and gray clouds blanketing him from the suns rays, the man thought, I couldve just flown here but the exhaust and radiation would be ba

A wayward lover is coming home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound
Never to emerge again
A spider entered his lady's den
Thoraces were hanging everywhere
Her abdomen loomed--white and bare
Afraid, he took the thread to seek, and
Nature told him what to speak
Awed eyes sparkled in recognition, and she
Embraced him in a quick decision
Languid love followed repetition
Evening came and the moon looked down
At arachnid lovers together bound
Glared at he who lay so still
Leered at she who made the kill...But his dead
Eyes stared back, happy and filled
Traveling over sticks and stones
The wayward lover has come on home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound...of arachnid love.

"Hey! What was that about!?" the falcon blurted, his anger clouding the awareness of his surrounding.
"Please…be quiet," said the ursine girl with her frail little voice, "Everyone is sleeping. They're trying to be fully rested, for we'll soon arrive at our new home. My sister and I were so excited, after all the bad things had happened, we were going to start anew, but the council doesn't quite feel the same, as you probably noticed…"
"Uh-huh…" Falco said, obviously not caring as he tried looking around the room. He could just make out the images of tall shelves that encircled the round room, a glass sphere in the center of the ceiling, allowing starlight to flutter on the runic tiled floor.
"You're excited too, are you not?" the girl asked, trying to be polite, "That's why you're up so late like my sister and I, right?"

A blue furred vixen looked out over the lush fields. Her emerald eyes glanced down to the paper now held in her hands, then at what she was wearing. The twist top was a little uncomfortable, but it was nothing compared to how exposed she felt from the overall lack of clothing she was wearing. But at least she wasnt completely bare. But she might as well have been. A vixen mercenary in a bikini. That was a new one for the books.
She thought that the ones who had hired them had to be joking. She looked like a doll rather than a warrior. Even the white markings on her fur, a sun pattern on her hip and a bar code like design on her upper arm, could be seen for heavens sake. At least she knew exactly how to put anyone down with a series of quick attacks. Plus, she had back up.

The ongoing sea of stars seemed more resplendent than ever before tonight, and for good reason, for somewhere in those depths was the Great Fox. The giant ship was not a stranger to this section of space, and it was still in poor shape. But, for the first time in four years, the ship contained all four members of its famous organization—the Star Fox Team.
Their widely-known, practically legendary leader, Fox McCloud, had a strong feeling of satisfaction taking over him. Sitting in the head of the mother-ship, his suit, boots and jacket, fit for action as they were, remained stained and tattered from his most recent adventure. In fact, this particular mission was probably the most p

And the rest of the world melts away.
Right before we almost poured our hearts out.
It's in the way the smirk formed over your face
During the last dip
In that dance that we almost got to finish.
The way our hands touched for just one instant
Where times' hands finally rested
As I almost couldn't tell if it was deliberate or accidental.
The way you wouldn't look me in the eye
Your hand ready for flight on the doorknob
And I almost asked you to stay.
Unsure looks with unanswered questions
Silence like the smoke after a battle
Because you almost thought I had changed.
Looking at the moon like it has the answers
Wishing on airplanes for a restart when it's not an option
Because I almost thought I had changed.
Admiration from afar only works for so long
When your heart bleeds from the inside
And you rip it open claiming it was almost out of love.
With you, ignorance is bliss

Even as he stared down at the large blue hand wrapped around his smaller wrist, even as he clutched to the old leather jacket in his other arm, even as he felt the warmth coming from said hand, he still though that the man pulling him along wasn't the man he just spent the night with.

Meanwhile outside of the Great Fox ship, someone was walking over to the back of the ship and opened the back door of the ship as well. This person was none other than Krystal who had been out for a long while.
Wow that party was amazing. Too bad Fox wasnt in the mood and too bad my feet are killing me.
Krystal was wearing a dark blue dress, two gold earrings, and dark blue heels. She removed one of them as she walked on the ship. As soon as she placed her foot on the metal of the ship, Krystal had shivers down her spine.
Oh my this ship is cold. Im putting these back on!
Krystal placed her heel shoe back on her foot and started walking into the ship back into her room but first she wanted to see how Fox was doing since he didnt go.

How could her mother do this?
Neytiri raced through the beautiful forests of Pandora, the wind kissing her glistening blue skin, long hair flowing behind her. The pain in her heart muted the pain of her feet as she raced outward into the landscape. Rocks and briars dug into her calloused feet, but she raced onwards.
She heard him yelling her name, she could hear the love in it, the worry, but he did not understand. What Laz'dumei had said he had proven true. Jake was not of this world, he was an outsider and always would be.
Neytiri darted over trunks of trees and around growing plants. Every so often the random forest critter would look to her, startled, before she raced onwards past it. The world around her became a blur as tears filled her golden eyes, she wiped them away but to no avail, they poured from her eyes like the waters of the wild over the cliffs. Her heart burned with p

An ant ascended the first time from his hole
and saw nothing but gray,
the earth and its mysteries obscured behind a fog.
"Surely my tunnels are all the world," said he,
and returned underground,
and thought no more of it.
And this is man a hundred fold!
This is man, and this is me.
I speak of The Big Picture as what I see
in a mirror or a microscope;
I know only myself and the merest fraction
of knowledge there is to be known.
The grand tapestry of plans within plans
was not revealed to me,
I see one circumstance and declare "life is misery,"
determined to miss the splendor of a thousand miles of forest
for the decay of a single tree.
What nearsighted foolishness, to say
"The world is this," or "the world is that"
as though the world were anything but a world,
a sphere of light and shade fully owned by neither.
Let "there are no words" be words enough,
and let man's fickle tongue give no more definitions.

and knew an entire universe to be

And while he sheepishly slunk to the floor, I asked him what he thought he was doing, being a husband when all I wanted was a dog. He kissed my foot and said that I needed a husband.
This is something that many have tried to tell me in the past, and I was not up for hearing about it. Not on a Saturday afternoon, when I had to fully wake up from my nap, make some coffee, and putz around for a few hours before meeting Sammie for drinks down at Calico’s, so we could watch all the cowboys wearing their finest, most colorful shirts and tightest jeans. Which last part seemed like something to which a husband might take offense.
