Pulling the door closed behind him, Jack Ryan sobbed, sitting down. He stared at the large, stuffed polar bear, and wearily, strode up the stairs.
"Aw, kid. You look like you're ready to keel over."
Turning around, Jack shrank against the bear. "Fontaine." He breathed. He didn't look like Fontaine, though. His face was different, blond hair falling over his head. Leaning on the balcony, Frank smiled. "Come to settle the score, boyo?" He mocked in Atlas' voice. Jack sank to his knees.
"I just wanted to be safe." Jack breathed, looking up. "This is...I..." He closed his eyes. "Frank...Atlas..." He pleaded, standing up. "Help..." He breathed.
Slumping against the bear, Jack watched as the world turned dark, and he fell into the rising black.
Frank blinked. He'd expected a much more violent reaction from the boy, not for him to pass out.
Then again, he mused, stalking towards the fallen Ryan, with so many revelation
Feels Like HomeHe could not remember ever having such a taste for alcohol, but it seemed he had found one.Feels Like Home4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Jack raised the bottle to his lips again - taking another mouthful of the stuff. He swallowed hard, letting out a sound reflecting how strong the alcohol was - and how little he usually drank. The bottle clinked softly against the floor as he set it down. He rested his head back against the wall - feeling the vibrations through the floor of a Bouncer chasing after something outside - he could hear the little girl yelling
God damn this place.
"Ya alright, boyo? I haven't heard a word out of ya."
He glanced down at the crackling radio that laid next to him on the ground. He wrapped a hand around the radio - a hand that had been trembling only a short while ago. It was still now, thanks to the alcohol in his system. He pressed down the button and raised the radio to his lips.
"That matters on your definition of okay, Atlas " he muttered.

The group had been lost within the Brecillian forest for several days, trying to find a strange herb that could only be found within the deepest depths of the forest. The forest seemed to grow on their armor now.
"Ughh what I would give to have a wonderful bath!" Leliana said as she swiveled her head from side to side trying to fix her hair. Alistair rubbed his hand over his scruffy chin, his beard beginning to annoy him at every twitch of his face.
"There has to be some source of water around here." Wynne said as she looked around, annoyed as well of the filth they had gathered from the wild. Everyone's nerves seemed to be twisted. Cogdale was silent, he had been since leaving the Dalish camp days ago. His Silverlite armor glistened green from the treetops that let what little sunlight escape thr

It was nothing. There was no Atlas. It was only the conman. Back from the dead. Jack's hands tremble, it feels as if his genetic code is being rewritten again-it feels like sparks are being shot through his veins and fire is being coated over his bones. He can taste bile at the back of his throat. Not real. Imagination.
That accent that he's become so accustomed to has slipped away entirely. It's He feels cold. Colder than he felt when the plane plummeted into the ocean-how long ago was that now? (There ain't no Atlas, kid. Never was.) The voice is all wrong, too harsh and too mocking. He falls to his knees, despite the shaking of the floor and a cracked sob wrenches from his lips. No. No. No. This can't can't-(Fella in my line a work takes on a variety of aliases)-he can't breathe.
Atlas is still talking and that god-awful Bronx accent is patching through the shortwave when it should be God, Atlas

Leaning against one of the walls, shaking his head in disbelief, Jack barely had a chance to shout when the wall fell away from behind him.
He landed in a cold puddle, the water sending a chill down his back. Standing up, he raised his head, and swore quietly. Four tubes lined the far wall, three empty. One was still filled with a clear blue, similar to the Vita-Chambers. Crossing the room, Jack spotted an audio diary. Hitting the button, he waited for it to play.
"Yi Suchong, Subjects: Atlas and Jack, Client: Fontaine Futuristics." A deep sigh escaped the recorder. "Fontaine demands results. I give results. Jack is completely functional and ready. Atlas..."
Jack winced as a lot of static and shouting overrode Suc

Snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a pawprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation
And it looks like I'm the queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Never kept it in
Hell knows I don't try
Just let them see
Just let them know
Be the bad cat you always want to be
Don't conceal, just feel, just let them know
And now they know
Let it no

Don't hold it back anymore
Let it no

Turn away and slam the door
And I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold always bothered me anyways
It's funny how some distance makes everything seems small
And the cheer that once controlled me, can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrongs, no rules for me
Let it no
Let it no
I'm one with the wind and sky
Let it no
Let it no
I'll always see you cry
Here I stand and here I slay
Let the storm rage on

“Erwin told me you brought me home last night,” you said.
Levi merely grunted.
“Thank you,” you said, as earnestly as you could.
Surprised at your gratitude, he tilted his head back to look at you. His steel blue eyes, normally so hard and cold, had softened. You liked that look.
“But, it’s time you left, Levi. I’m alright now. I have Erwin to look after me.”
His soft gaze hardened in an instant. “I wager I could do a better job than him,” he spat.
“Better than the Commander of the Survey Corps?”
“Come with me,” he said, eyes pleading. “Run away with me. Forget about him. I’ll make you Queen of the Underground.”
You shook your head sadly. “I won’t become a criminal, Levi. You think I would give up everything for a life on the streets? You think I would leave the man I love for someone I met barely two days ago?”
Levi gave you a pained look. “What do days matter?

In just a few days, school will be out for the summer. While mom and dad went to get a new bed for the guest bedroom, along with other things I stayed at home, talking to Lili, as I was cleaning the guest bedroom.
“So how long until Arthur comes to stay with you?” Lili asks, on the other line. I took out the rug to beat the dust out of it, while holding my phone to my ear.
“Just a few more days. I can’t wait to meet him in person. This is so exciting!” I replied. I beat the rug as hard as I could, causing a massive dust cloud. This goes to show how often we use the guest room. Coughing from the dust, I decided to take a break for now. I’m so excited. I wish the next three days will fly by quickly.
Luckily for me, the next three days did fly by. Since my parents had to work, I drove to the airport by myself to pick up Arthur. Thanks to Elizaveta and Lili, they helped me make a sign to welcome Arthur. We used a ton of glitter paint, a

I was reading the local paper, when I happened across an ad in the paper looking for a baker. I desperately needed a job since I got laid off at my other one for reasons I shan't explain. The person who was advertising was Arthur Kirkland. "Hmm. Where have I heard that name before?" Scratching my head I sat the paper down and took a sip of my tea. While I was drinking it, I turned my attention out to the giant window. It was covered with perspiration from the humidity and rain coming down from it outside.
When I finished my breakfast, I got dressed in my normal attire. A white long sleeved button down shirt, with a pink vest, blue bow and khaki pants. Don't question me poppit. Before I left, I put on my black leather trench coat and grabbed my resume I had made so many times before, my blue with pink polka-dotted umbrella, and headed out the door. I stopped at a stop sign and looked around me. I noticed it had

Jack had held his hand all the way from the repaired orphanage to Frank's apartment. Admittedly at arm's length, but still...
Did it mean he was growing on the boy?
Frank rubbed at the back of his neck with a groan. Jack had decided to ask Brigid and the girls for their help last night. Telling them that help was needed repainting a newly furnished area kept the ladies from guessing just what it was they'd help decorate.
Putting the cigarette to his lips, Frank blinked as an arm wrapped around his neck, and the cigarette was stolen from his fingers.
"You shouldn't smoke, Frank." Jack sighed, yawning as he stubbed the cigarette out. "It's like kissing an ash-tray." He muttered. Laughing slightly, Frank leaned back to accept the sleepy kiss he pushed to Frank's cheek, and watched as Jack sleepily began making himself a cup of coffee, spilling hot water over his hand by accident.

You shut the door with a jittery joy. Today was the day you had the apartment all to yourself; your roommate was out of town since summer vacation had just started. It's not that you didn't like your roommate. No, not at all; it's that you never had the apartment all to yourself for longer than a day.
"Hmmm, what should I do tonight," you murmured to yourself. You moved away from the door and as you carefully thought over this, a scorching hot summer night breeze hit your already hot skin. You smiled as a thought crept to your mind. You shut all the window blinds and started stripping out of your pajamas until you were only in your undergarments. Your skin tingled in delight.
Satisfied, you decided that tonight was going to be a movie night. You gathered all the movies you bought but never watched

I hadn't felt any amount of guilt greater than I had walking away from the man who had saved my life. I nearly second-guessed myself, and went running back to apologize profusely, but that unfortunately, was not my way of doing things. I stubbornly pressed forward, if only because I was afraid of stopping and questioning my desicions. There was no worse feeling than the feeling of uncertainty.
The wind whipped through me as I walked down the paved road adjacent to the larger part of the desert. I dared touch the golden makeshift bandage wrapped around my upper arm. As if on cue, I could hear footsteps racing across the pavement. I sighed regrettably, knowing exactly what was to happen.
"I haven't been totally honest with you," his voice came, floating on the air as it rang through my ears. I could hear that his breath was laboured. I had hoped he would not follow, but he persisted anyway. I paused midstep, and I turned to him. I was met by his sad violet eyes.

By Mardak Farraideach
Ever since my formative years in the halls of Octarcanum University, a single question has plagued me. What is magic? How does it work? Why does it work? How do dragons fly when their weight alone should ground them? How do elementals, collections of inanimate mass or force, possess life and sentience? How is it that wizards like myself must spend countless years of study in order to cast the simplest of cantrips while sorcerers can sneeze a Gust of Wind from childhood?
I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of these answers. My old professors told me that such things are not meant to be known while my fellow compatriots would usually reply with, "It's magic! You're not supposed to explain it!". To me, such answers smack of irresponsibility.

After hanging out at the park for a bit, Arthur and I head back to my house. Dad and mom were in the kitchen as we walked inside.
“(Name), why does our kitchen smell like burnt fish and grease?” Mom asks, tossing some salad in a bowl. I did a serious poker face when she asks me that. I thought that the smell would go away by the time we got back.
“Ah…well…that’s a long story.” I said smiling. Arthur and I ran to the basement until dinner was ready. I turned on the stereo and popped in one of the mixed CD’s I had on the shelf. The first track played, ‘Misery Business’ by Paramore.
“Should I tell your mother about the pan I destroyed?” Arthur asks, plopping down on the couch.
“Don’t worry about it. I doubt she’ll find out.” I said. “There’s so many kitchenware, there’s no way she would even notice one pan missing.” My mom advertises a lot

Love is not a string,
Nor is it a ring.
It is not a game,
Or some beast for you to tame.
Neither is it a wave,
Or in confessions of the brave.
Love does not stay in only two,
If what you feel is true.
It is in the smile of bliss,
And the feather light kiss.
Love is like a quiet breeze,
That touches all it sees.
It is in the smiles you bring,
That makes others wish to sing.
In it you will forgive,
The sins of those that live.
It can be seen with loving eyes,
And is the envy of the skies.
It is against the norm,
And helps you weather any storm.
Hear love's clarion call,
For every heart, both great and small.
Love is patient, love is kind,
Love is not for the haughty mind.
In all these things it be;
Love, which is eternity.

During the school year, Arthur and I continued to write each other back and forth. Some people told me that emailing would be much quicker, but I think it’s more fun to get a surprise in the mail, instead of reading it online. Plus, I doubt Arthur is the type to use computers. It’s kind of funny, since he’s like an old man sometimes. I stared at the photo Arthur sent me a few months ago. Golden blonde hair, adorable bushy eyebrows, and his eyes. I love his eyes the most. Green like emeralds. From the scale of one to ten on Bella’s hotness rating…well, he just broke that scale.

Bellatrix was shouting something, but the words were incomprehensible.
