Chapter 20 Scorpius
"Oh my God, his arm. Oh Merlin, his arm!"
"His arm? Look at all of 'im! He's like a stick figure drawn by a toddler!"
"Move! Move! Move! Do you really think he's comfortable with all of you just inches from him?!" Madam Pumphrey.
"Er, that means we win, right?" Scamander. Didn't matter which one.
"Lorcan! What the hell?!" Albus. And the prior was Lorcan, now.
"What?! It's something I'm curious about!" Damn you, Lorcan.
"Okay! All of you! Out, out, out!" I could hear forced shuffling of feet. Madam Pumphrey was such a hard ass, and yet she was the medic here. I would've shrugged if I could. She's the only one capable of doing what she does.
"WhaWait, Madam Pumphrey! Can't I--?!"
"No! All of you, out!" Before I heard the door slam, she muttered something, and a pair of feet walked back onto the tile of the room. A chair screeched a bit as the person scooted it closer to me.
"Hey Hey, Scorpius. You awake?" Albus asked. I wa

Chapter 7 - Rose
I slept quite well that night, making up for the hours that I had missed the night before. The morning was a different story.
I was definitely second-guessing this new fangled relationship with Scorpius. I doubting how we were actually going to be able to be together, at least in front of people. I felt like every person that glanced my way could see it written all over my face.
The Great Hall was packed with students for breakfast. I sat next to Lily and James as usual, although Lily's constant chatter with her friends is hard to endure.
"Hey, you," James said, wrapping his arm around my neck and shaking my head. I laughed and pushed him off, my face going red from my still present anxiety.
He looks at me. "Why're you like that?"
"Your ears are all red." He laughed and grabbed the one closest to him.
"Ow!" I turned around and looked at the Slytherin table. Scorpius was laughing at something Albus said. As if on cue, he caught

Chapter 9 - Scorpius
Rose was something more than a girl, but I couldn't find the right word to describe her. We had spent the rest of the day laughing at anything that we talked about. Quidditch. O.W.L.S. scores. Spells. Muggles (she had a superfluous amount of stories on Muggles from her grandfather and mother, which were surprisingly fascinating). We didn't even visit any of the shops or restaurants there, except for the Three Broomsticks toward the end of the day, where we had planned to meet up with Albus and Maggie. It was strange, lying to Albus, or at least keeping something as exciting as Rose from him, but it was a slight turn on, not that I'd tell Rose until I knew she got the same feeling.
Albus and I were out on the Quidditch field after class, just enjoying the sun and trying each other's skills. I kicked the quaffle into the highest ring.
"Ha!" I cried, which echoed through the stadium.
"Yes. That's 12 for you, and about 30, was it? For me." Albus grinne

Dave x John - Zombiestuck RP - Pt. 1This is the Dave x John zombiestuck RP that I did with ScalemateJudge. She was John, and I was Dave. So obviously the structure of this isn't like a normal story, it's back and forth. The larger gaps between paragraphs are switches in character. Just a little warning is all. Anywhore, enjoy!

"JADE, RUN!" The break in his voice was nothing he cared about. Dry, aged cement crackling underfoot as he sprinted around what used to be a mall Parking lot. Why had he insisted on going to see the joke shop? Dad had taught him better than to go into formerly highly populated areas.
Well... before he became one of them.
John dove behind an abandoned car, breathing heavily and not bothering to straighten his glasses. They were the least of his worries at the moment.
The all too familiar gurgles and groans were still advancing. They would be upon him soon. Where was Jade? Did she get to safety?
What if she was…
No, no, he needed to stop thinking like that.

One last night
A light breeze which embraced me. Cold and warm at the same tome.
It had just stopped to rain. The clouds marched off. The sky cleared up. I sat on a cold stone. Since hours. My expression was empty and unemotional. No expression. Nothing. Somewhere in the fields. Only and secluded.
Again a light breeze. With it a wonderful voice. A light, clear voice. She seemed very much famously to me. But how could it be?
"The spangled night is very nice, isn't it?", she asked.
Briefly I stared upwards, then to the ground. I clenched my hand to a fist. No, it's a dream. You're mad. You need to sleep.
I got up and wanted to go, however, she held on me.
"It seems so far. It seems so infinite. And it has so many stars. Infinity...", she murmured.
I closed tight my eyes. I trembled. Now all feelings went through.
"Hold my hands.", she quietly whispered.
So I turned round to her. There was not her. All that was not real.
I felt something chill on my face and something my hand softl

He didn't have much to think about during the quiet walk, either. He supposed he thought about things that normal people shouldn't have to think about. When his next healthy meal will be, if he'll be killed in his sleep, etc, etc. He doesn't remember the days where he used to worry about shit like homework and grades.Dave x John Zombiestuck RP - Pt. 21 year ago in Romance More Like This
They thankfully reached the town just before the sun disappeared. It was still dim, though, and the streets were still a good open area for zombies to roam.
Dave didn't realize it, but his left hand was wrapped around John's arm to keep him close, his head moving back and forth to make sure they were safe and not turning into anyone's prey. His right hand was rested on the handle of his pistol, ready to fire at a moment's notice.
Knowing that they just might not be alone, Dave kept his voice to a whisper, leaning towards John's ear. "Want to pick a house to stay

There wasn’t enough space in your room for your piano, so you’ve settled your keyboard into it. Dave switched to a twin sized bed so that his turntables actually fit in his room. You don’t care what he does with his room anyway, he just makes a mess of it, and that’s not your responsibility.
“As long as it doesn’t stink up the place,” was your compromise.
Dave moved up to Washington the day he turned eighteen. He had been tossed around in foster care all his life, having been split up from his twin brother when twelve, and was not happy with the fake families (as he called them). He was packed and ready to go at midnight when he became a legal adult.
He stayed with you and your father for two weeks, looking for jobs and places to live. He was too humble to ask for money, but your

Every now and then, in the middle of the constant barrage of crap that's just pissing us all off these days, we come across a story, a feat, an event that just makes us stop in our tracks. This was one for me.
Cody Green was a 12-year kid in Indiana who was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old. He loved the Marines, and his parents said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps. As he bravely fought the battle into remission three times. Although he was cancer-free at the time, the chemotherapy had lowered his immune system and he developed a fungus infection that attacked his brain.
Two weeks ago, as he struggled to fend off that infection in the hospital, the Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage. They presented Cody with Marine navigator wings and named him an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn't enough...
So that night, before Cody Green passed away, he took it upon him

Deep down in the stone basement corridor the eleven year old daughter of the family Aya Drevis, a quite girl with long black hair as dark as night with a red bow tied in the back, her blue eyes and pale complexion along with the blue and white dress with a small gold pendent around her neck made her look pretty, at least that’s what her father always said.
She knocked on the door of her father’s laboratory calling out to him. “Father…” she paused waiting for a reply before she knocked again. “Father, are you in there?”
The door opened then and she stepped back as a tall thin yet thin looking man stepped out, he had short messy brown hair that at times seemed as if he never bothered to brush, oval glasses res

I am loneliness and a soldier's niece
I wonder about the future and it's surprises
I hear the crying of soldiers that have died fighting for their country
I see depression that consumes the soldier's family
I want the death of war to stop and my soldier to come home
I am loneliness and a soldier's niece
I pretend my soldier is back home with me protecting me from home
I feel the cold wind on my skin as I sit on the porch waiting
I touch the clothes to my face as i remember his presence
I worry about my soldier not coming home one day
I cry when being strong is too hard to do anymore
I am loneliness and a soldier's niece
I understand the duty a soldier has to his country
I say come back as he walks into war
I dream of death, the darkness, and the war not claiming my soldier forever
I try to be strong for him
I hope I will get to see him again
I am loneliness and a soldier's niece

What if I stopped caring
About my looks?
Would I lose some respect
For not trying anymore?
What if I told you
How hard I work for

About my grades?
Would anyone try to help me?
Or would they just scold me

For the sake of friendship?
Or would you just look for the benefits?
Would you cry at my death?
Would they be tears for me,
Or for my services?

"John." Sherlock begins and then seems to just stop.
John rolls his eyes. "It's alright, I know why you're here, I'm not going to bother you, just wanted to make sure you didn't do any weird experiments on my stuff."
Sherlock just nods, seemingly nervous. He doesn't move; it's as if his feet are rooted to the rug he's standing on.
"Aren't you going to get on with it, then?" John asks. He knows his tone is blunt, and if he's honest, verging on rude, but he's not the one who has just broken into someone else's room. It seems especially egregious after nine months of no contact between the two of them.

Never before had I seen Touya so serious, so intense. Not even that first day in the Battle Subway, when my own Pokemon had fallen and he had single-handedly beat both remaining opponents. Nor had he been so serious that day we finally made it to the Subway Bosses, Ingo and Emmet (undoubtably, it had been my fault it had taken so long in the first place). Now, however...
I watched, awestriken, as he positioned the instrument beneath his chin, his gaze never leaving my face for a moment. I blushed, glancing away - how dare he trick me into believing that his invitation was something innocent, like a practice match, a training session! I wouldn't have come, definitely wouldn't have come if he had told me that he planned on playing the freaking violin for me.
Although it did make me feel stupid, seeing as I didn't even know he could play in the first place.

She rarely cried, unlike most infants, and preferred giggling to any gesture of sadness or displeasure.

A Sacrifice of SoldiersA Sacrifice of Soldiers3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Forgetful are the minds of those whose freedoms
Are bought with blood, they remember not
The meaning for which the scarlet stripes are
Meant, neither do they mourn for the prices paid by
The Dogs of War who protect these vulnerable sheep from destruction.
Ungrateful are the hate-filled spirits who usurp their
Authority to order these selfless warriors into selfish havoc
Till the gains of greed are satisfied through innocent life.
Demonic crusades beckon the rites of cowardly nobles to
Make a sacrifice of soldiers, whose worth is but
Dirt in the eyes of safe beholders, yet, no disgruntled
Remark will be heard from these Hell-walkers; they walk
Upright with heads high and hands tightly pressed
To leg without complaint; their duty: Courage.
