Expedition Letters to GraceDear Grace,Expedition Letters to Grace5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
You told me, back when we were visiting Peru and I was feeling down, that I would eventually find my calling in life. I write to you now to tell you, quite happily, that I have.
I can't explain much about it at the moment, only that my sudden absence from the university is for a reason. As I write, I am currently en route to New York City, to visit their museums and get a taste of the culture. I told you before how I wanted to visit New York while I had the chance, and now I travel with purpose.
I will say now, that while what I am about to do may seem strange to you, even mad, I can promise you that I am of sound mind and am determined to see my ambition through. Never before have I felt so strongly about the rightness of my decision. I will explain more in time. All I can tell you now is that I am launching my own expedition, and that it will be unorthodox, to say the least. I write you because you are my oldest and dearest friend, and I feel I can trust you.
Give my best

I stood in silence, staring down the dark hallway. I had no idea what was at the end of this hall, and I wasn't too sure that I wanted to find out. As I took a deep breath, I noticed the air smelled a little.... Off.Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed an orb fly past my head. Figured as much. I let out a low growl. This orb didn't seem to want to be friends with us.
"What are you growling at?"
I glanced up and behind me to see my owner. I smiled, wagged my tail, then turned my attention back to the orb that was flying around the hallway like a ping pong ball. I took a step forward before I felt myself getting scooped up.
"Something in here?"
"Duh." I thought. I keep forgetting that humans aren't as spiritually tuned in as us dogs are. I let out a small whine, pointing my paw in the direction of the orb. Just then, one of my owner's many devices started going off. The once black halls were now illuminated with a bright blue light. My owner stared at the light for a moment before scri

Ella had a healthy sense of humor, but she had nearly reached her limit. When the toady, hunched groom had referred to her as 'another of those blasted princesses', she couldn't help but grin. And when the man servant presented her at court with a river of rainwater still draining from her clothes and hair, she stifled a smirk at the spectacle she must have made.
But now, the queen was prodding at her hips and saying, "They're rather too thin. Not proper hips for bearing sons. And her hair is poker straight. With Prince Analdo's curls, their children will look like God knows wha--"
"I don't want to marry your son," Ella snapped, her good will exhausted.
"Of course you want to marry the prince. Why else would you be here?" the queen asked. There was an annoying little titter of laughter from the watching court.
"Because it's storming. And I got stuck out in it. I'm just looking for a place to stay the night and the loan of some dry clothes." She
Fire and ShadowsIs it shadows that dance in the firelight?Fire and Shadows4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or does the fire dance to the shadows' tune?
Do we shelter from shadows in the fire's might?
Or do they shelter us from fire's scorching bloom?
Do fire and shadow work against each other?
Fighting for dominance in the night?
Or would each of them rather work with the other?
To shield impassioned lovers from sight.
Neither is wrong, and both are right,
Fire and shadow dancing together.
Shadows dance through Fall with the fire bright,
Part of a circle cycling forever.
The fires show in the leaves of the trees,
Burning the sky with their colors bright.
The shadows lurk in the lengthening days,
Ready to obscure the humans' sight.
Is it shadows that dance in the firelight?
Or does the fire dance to the shadows' tune?
Do we shelter from shadows in the fire's might?
Or do they shelter us from fire's scorching bloom?

Huge, selfish as they are
Leaving morsels of me behind
Teeth my words and chew up my heart
Bite through my spine with shark like jaws
I am used, you explain, damaged,
Dirty for existing.
Dirty for loving you.
I ask you why you like to hurt me.
"I love you most when you ache on the inside."
I have never hated myself more.

Dream of Deeper ThingsMy heart lives in a world where silent ravens make their nestDream of Deeper Things4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Where sunlight's dying rays descend on ancient boughs to rest
Where older trees than Time itself speak words through dusky air
Where moss and fern coat earth and stone, like maiden's flowing hair.
The dragonflies are dancing there to some unending tune
The brook is making ripples to reflect the crescent moon
The stars are shining music with their clear, unsullied light
The breeze is whispering secrets of the skies into the night.
And I am singing with the ravens in their lofty nest
And I am with the dozing sun, my weary head to rest
And I am speaking with the trees and breathing dusky air
The earth and stone, the moss and fern are tangled in my hair.
My heart lives in a world where I can dream of deeper things.

[Princess!Reader x Butler!Jake DRABBLE]
I was born with only the highest expectations. In everything, from being the most beautiful, to intelligent, to artistic. To lead my kingdom to greatness, to marry a fine prince and become a king. From the moment the Queen was declared pregnant, the King and the Royal Council all got together and planned the course of my life down to the minute. They saw me doing great things, which was what I intended to do. In fact, I intended to do it by myself.
My parents didn't see the logic in this, no matter how many times I explained. I didn't want a prince, I was well-educated enough to lead our kingdom magnificently, without a King to tell me what to do and make the decisions for Prospit that I should be making. Of course, they couldn't imagine a lone Queen taking over Prospit. They arranged for me to marry a man named Dirk, a prince from a neighboring kingdom, Derse. We were to be wed, and our kingdoms would pull together as

You got chills. Was this "Jeff" just messing with you?
He didn't seem like a bad guy, after all. He's just an outcast, like you.
There's nothing wrong with that, right?
The bus ride seemed eternal. Each stop was an excruciating wait as he stared. You saw him stare.
You decided to go sit by him while the bus was stopped.
"I noticed you kept staring. I'm not quite blind...Yet. I've got a tad or peripheral vision left." You smiled, an attempt to hide your anxiety and frustration in this situation. You were so drawn to him, yet you felt unsafe, like he was dangerous.
"I couldn't help myself." Jeff's grin lessened, but it wasn't that he wasn't pleased. It was a different kind of smile. It was more...deranged.
"Well, that's okay. I don't mind. What's your first class?" The bus was pulling into the school. Finally.
"It's..." He pulled out a terribly crumpled schedule out. It had brownish-red stains on it.

You opened the door and gave him your best, 'LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE!' face. But it didn't scare him off. Crap.
"Hey babe~." He said running a hand though his full anime hair.
"What do you want Dirk?" He's been a somewhat normal here.
"A date." He winked behind the anime shades he was wearing. You slapped your hand on your forehead then ran it down your face.
"Dammit Dirk. Don't you remember that your good friend, Jake English, is my boyfriend?" You noted starring him down. He gave a laugh and you slammed the door shut already sick of his shit. Quickly you locked it.(Learned the hard way.)
"HEY IF ANY OF YOU OPEN THE DOOR FOR A BLONDE I'M GOING TO KILL YOU ALL. NO EXCEPTIONS!" You screamed hopping everyone heard you. Again, you learned the hard way to start doing this. Of course you heard a few "Okay!"'s c
Rusty CageDon't perch me upon a cotton cloudRusty Cage3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or quarter me by the country lake;
No fields of grain inspire me now,
Nor misty hues above the creek.
I have seen too many daffodils
And belle bluebells too pall my soul,
These mockingjays do not arouse
A drop of woe, a drip of joy.
Instead set me off upon a barge
Where the shadows meet, by day or night;
Off to a shade where silence unites
With her soundless charms of quietude.
And leave my haunt with little tint
A monochrome wind, a fickle farewell,
And write to me once every fortnight
From the confines of your recent grave.
And here let there be no robin's song,
No blackbird's lay, no warbler's hymn,
Leave me be in my rusty cage:
The throne of human creation.

Rivaille/Levi x Reader - You've got something
You were a squad leader of some part of the Scouting Legion. Being a squad leader means you have the right to speak to your fellow superiors. Even the commander which is Erwin.
You are friends with Commander Erwin, he looks at you with a sister-like view. He would always baby you, being the youngest superior among your legion.
Despite being young, you are quite curvy. Yes, with that hour-glass like body of yours and your curves.
You were rather insecure of someone looking at you because you are aware of your bumps which some cars go boom for. If you know what I mean.
You are active and you seem not affected by the chores given by the glamorous Lance Corporal Rivaille, which is short in what not. Though you don't tease him because of that teenage-like height of yours.
You are sweeping the leaves off the courtyard when you noticed Rivaille coming, instantly you placed your broom down and saluted.
"Good morning, Corporal!" you beamed.

It's astonishing. I was here two weeks before I met this person, and in less than one he has opened my eyes to so much. In the sense that a tourist doesn't see the beauty of the land until a native shows the way, well-wait. That's near exactly what this was. But, disregarding my mediocre comparisons, I found that there was much more to the land on which I now reside than an untrained such as my own would-"

George glanced up from the boiling pot of macaroni and cheese with a smug look on his face. “Oh, you’re hilarious. Just fucking hilarious.”
“No need to be in a grumpy mood,” Paul said with a smile, “I was only joking, you know.”
He looked around the kitchen, seeing Ringo pulling out plates and such to set the table with. “Aye, where’s John?”
Ringo shrugged. “I dunno, I think he went up on the roof or somethin’. Wherever he is, he’s been gone for awhile, that’s for sure.” He quickly got back to pulling dishes out of the cupboards.
“Why don’t you go look for ‘em?” George suggested. “Dinner’ll be ready in ten or so.”
Paul nodded and headed up the stairs, knowing that John was more than likely on the roof as Ringo had s
