Looking down at the large stack of papers on his desk, Rufus frowned. “I still don't have everything I need here. As a matter of fact, a large percentage of what's in front of me is what I don't need.” Frustrated, he rubbed between his eyes and sighed.
“I told you I wasn't cut out for secretary work. That's why I asked to be placed elsewhere.” Unapologetic, you crossed your arms and turned up your nose. “Now maybe you'll believe me and put me somewhere where I can actually be helpful.”
Acting as if he hadn't even heard you, Rufus continued his complaining. “You even forgot to bring me a coffee.” He seemed more disappointed with you than he did upset. “However, as you stated, I was warned, so I really shouldn't be surprised.” Placing his elbows on his desk he held his chin in his hands. “Where do you think I should place you? Quite honestly, this is one of the easiest jobs I have to offer you at the moment.”

Summary: Five sweaty guys, four working showers and no yaoi in sight. I swear!
At least there was a small upside to being held back after class for extra physical training, Cloud grumbled as he twisted the shower handle and was drenched in wonderful, hot water. The run-down, broken tiled trooper showers were empty, all of his fellow troopers having escaped the ShinRa facilities for a Friday night of boozing and partying as soon as they could. But at least, Cloud thought to himself as he twisted the knob for further heat, at least that meant he could get a hot shower after the grueling extra training. Of the ten showerheads in a row, only four gave hot water. It almost made up for being left behind and lonely on a Friday night. Almost. He sighed, and tried to relax his stiff muscles. The training sergeant insisted he was still too small to make the outtake for Soldier and pushed him ruthlessly throu

He goes by many names.
In the Disney Castle, they call him the ghost in the library. A dark formless shape seen to disappear whenever someone enters. A book always gone with him. It comes back later at the price of another one.
In Halloween Town, they call him a poltergeist, since Finkelstein is just used to those stealing books from him, but he's confused as to why this poltergeist hasn't introduced itself to him yet.
Yen Sid doesn't know exactly what to call him beyond "something suspicious going on here." He just knows he isn't absent minded, yet books end up in different places than where he left them last.
Ariel calls him her own absent-mindedness. She'll often lose a treasure, usually something like a globe, for about a week, then find it in the oddest place. But she never suspects it's anything other than a misplacing.
There were those who never questioned and those who were too curious to accept the status quo. Luxord was one of the latter.

He has his back to her. The others, they have already gone inside; but for too long, he had been inside. His crimson form bleeds into dusk's vermillion. Always obscured. Always standing just in the back. Sometime she wonders if this is something simply in all Turks' nature; or if it is simply him. Tseng had been that way too. Quietly, the Cetra reminds herself.
Like Tseng, he knows she's there.
"Why are you here?" There's an unbidden Cetra in his domain. Reserved, again, she is reminded of Tseng; but she is also reminded of the rare occasions the Turk would smile. She has loved those rare moment of serendipity, she cherished them.
I am here because we may be alike.
"I seek a man." His question is responded. She might just have to fight against that tiny flood of rose on her cheeks. Words and interpretations, some can take that on all kind of wrong levels. Pearl white teeth chewing upon dusk, the star of her emerald remains upon him-

Who is this insolent being? Who is this insolent being that dares to challenge my might? How does he dare to face one... one who has brought one great nation too many to ruin? It matters not. I am absolute. I shall toy with him. His screams of pain and agony shall prove amusing.
A raven-haired beauty sat upon her throne of obsidian stone. Midnight blue was splashed upon the pitch black through the display of draped silk. Running a delicate hand through her raven tresses, she glanced lazily at the warrior before her. Long lashes fluttered as she rested her head upon a fair hand, displaying nonchalance. Pristine white wings spread out from her back, each emitting a faint glow, giving her an ethereal appearance of an angel. It was deceptively so and one would have perceived so... had it not been for the fire that burned wi

There was this empty hole in my mind devouring everything that was left-
I was a soldier.
What did they call it?
I can't for the life of me remember.
Why was I-
A sudden flash of remembrance lit up as a lightning bolt in my head.
My hands were shaking like leafs on a tree in late fall.
What is it that-
No no it wasn't just a gun.
What was it called?
My stomach protested and tried to push out whatever that was in there.
How long since I ate?
Just a forced sound came out, luckily.
Where is it?
I can't find it-
It was like someone had covered up everything with a blanket.
You can't see what's on the other side, just hints of what was behind it.
Just like that it was gone again.
What was I thinking?
What is it that I can't reach?
I'm wearing black leather gloves.
Still shaking I tore off the glove on my right hand-
My gunblade hand.
It was dirty and full of soars and cuts.
I didn't even notice it hurt until

No gods could be this cruel to me."
He watched the reunion silently. The man's eyes flitted to Aerith's face briefly, and then back down to the floor again, as if he were ashamed. Perhaps he was. At any rate, the point was moot. She bent down gently, forcing him to look up, catching his eyes and drawing his gaze from the floor. And then she smiled, and in the smile there was forgiveness, and compassion, and understanding. There was a pause, and then the man smiled back.
And so Cloud had found his peace.

Yuffie stepped in front of the group with a deep frown on her face. “So, there seems to be a little problem right now. When Weiss left, he left Nero behind, after shoving him in the closet. Nero's not exactly very talkative, or social. Not to mention he's mentally unstable.” She sighed. “Is there anyone in here that could maybe handle that kind of personality? I don't expect you guys to kiss or anything like that, we just need to get him out so a real turn can happen.”
You thought you might be able to help, but you didn't want to come off as sounding egotistical or prideful. After a minute or two of waiting however, you realized that no one else was even willing to try. “I'll give it a shot. I'm not promising anything, but I will do my best.”
“Finally, I thought we were going to have to move to another room.” Glad you'd accepted the challenge, Yuffie grabbed you by the elbow and quickly pulled you to

“Maybe I just have better luck with this game than Orihime does. Nothing bad has happened yet, so I'm going to stop worrying for now.” Actually starting to relax again, Ichigo grabbed one of your hands in his and pulled you to your feet. “I'm not going to walk you through this, since I'm sure you know what to do by now. Good luck. I'll be over there if you need me for something.” After handing you the still very heavy backpack, he turned around, dropped down into a comfortable chair and helped himself to a snack.
“R-right, I've got this. It'll be no problem at all.” Almost too nervous to move, you awkwardly reached your hand inside of the pack and pulled out a soft, yet very strange, stuffed doll. You could tell that the rather odd looking doll was supposed to be a carp, but you had no idea who it might belong to.
Luckily, you didn't have to ask. As soon as the doll was within view, Ukitake rose from his seat and stepped to

Can we please go home now?” Usually you wouldn't have said anything about the fruitless search, but after being on your feet for three days straight, without proper sleep, food or even a shower, you couldn't keep yourself from speaking your mind.
Kadaj sent you a hate filled glare. “I'd stop your complaining if I were you, I just might make you check the entire building for a second time.” Even in the dimly lit building, you could see that Kadaj and his brothers were just as tired as you were. Still, they wouldn't give up the search. “Come on, we're almost done with this wing.” Pushing past you, Kadaj forced open a heavy metal door.

She reminded him, “You wanted to talk.”
The fleeting intrusion of comfort gave way to another surge of fear. His body reacted mechanically to the emotion, muscles relaxing deceptively, trigger-ready, alertness hardening his eyes. He pulled in a steadying breath. Talk about what? I can't think of anything. No, I can't explain anything I'm thinking. “Lost what I was gonna say.”
Rinoa bowed her head for a moment, shuffling her feet. “I wanted to talk, too.”
“So, talk.” It came out harsher than he'd intended. Hurriedly, he answered her frown, trying to soften his voice before it could freeze on him again. Say something. “Say anything.”
She began slowly. “All day, I've been thinking about...when I found you.” She leaned forward a little. “When you woke up.”

In the blustering wind of the night
And my tears don't retreat
Because crying's not weak
And I know it'll all end out right
If your heart's crumbling down
As your walls build back up
If you're scared of the town
Or you're running from love
Then run into the night
And run into the dark
And find your own light
Hidden down in your heart
I'm not scared of the dark
Because I break down the parts
Until I find a little light
As everything has a heart
That burns bright like the stars
So I know it'll all end out right
If your heart's crumbling down
As your walls build back up
If you're scared of the town
Or you're running from love
If you're hating your life
If you're losing your way
It'll all end out right
Through the darkest of days
So run into the night
And run into the dark
And find your own light
That lives down in your heart
When the cities asleep
And the shadows still creep
Through the dark of the alleys at night
But it's not such a

For times untold, the sacred forest of Baalhiam has seen bitter strife between humans and the Elf people. A high magic place, foremost sanctuary of druids and mages, the forest is home to the Elves of Nür. They are the guardians of a powerful magic taking its source at the heart of the old forest.
As human mages came to steal this magic, war broke out. The Elves closed down their borders. They concealed the pathways through Baalhiam with magical spells, driving humans away from their territory. From then on, Baalhiam became a forbidden place for foreigners. Cendre and her family are among the banned people, who soon discover what tragic curse has befallen them. While the immemorial forest is a mighty source of magic, those who are expelled after being born and raised there stand condemned. After several years spent far from the forest, they fall inexplicably ill. Try as she might to fight against it, Cendre loses mother and

When I was little, my dad would bring home paper from his job. He worked with computers and stuff and often had tons of it lying around, so I'd make use of it and draw. (With his permission.
