You didnt send my heartbeat into a frenzy the first time I saw you. It was a month or two before I started feeling the little palpitations inside my chest and made sure that my hand accidentally brushed against yours every now and then.
(I wanted to make sure you got used to the feeling of my atoms colliding with yours.)
I told myself it was stupid and simply physical. You werent pulling my heart strings, you were toying with my belt buckle by smiling at me across the room and asking me to spend time with you on a Saturday afternoon. I was sold by the time you pulled into my driveway and my name slipped from between your lips.
(Sweaty palms and twisted vocal chords told me no one said it quite like you.)
I promised myself this was strictly a one-way thing. I feigned like I felt nothing, and in my nervousness I became the witty jackass. You laughed at my barbed-wire jokes and sped through a red light while I was watching

The Right to Be WrongI know why you hate me. You think I don't care. You think that's why I left, or at least that's why we have no basis for a relationship. The thing is, Edward, you just don't remember when I was there, and you can't believe how much I care. But I do.The Right to Be Wrong4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
You don't remember the first time I held you, so soft and fragile in my arms. You don't remember gazing into my eyes with your shining, newborn shards of gold. You don't remember falling asleep, your tiny fingers curled around one of mine.
And there were the diapers and the baths, when I took over for your mother. Patting you on your small back, pacing up and down, rocking in the rocking chair so you could go to sleep. And there was the first time you smiled at me, so warm and precious it made my heart melt.
Do you remember what your first word was? "Papa." I remember, even if you don't, how you clapped your hands and giggled over and over, "Pa-pa, pa-pa, pa-pa!" And how proud I was, how filled with joy. I taught you how to walk, did

"Me too, brother," replied the echoing child's voice from within the armor. They lay silently while crickets played sonnets.
"Al, you know I love you, right?" His voice was thick with emotion- or perhaps puberty.
"Same here, brother." Al whispered. "More than anything..."
"Al, you know you mean everything to me, right? And I want you to be happy... if anything ever happens to me." The last was almost an after thought.
"Brother, what is this about?"
Ed did not answer immediately. When he did it was strained, as if he were trying to come to terms with it himself. "I've just been ...thinking... a lot lately." He paused for a moment. "Well, goodnight Al."
Al awoke the following morning- never remembering falling asleep. He was as bare as the day he was born, but alive... and whole.
Ed was no where to be found.

The Best Gift
The times Edward Elric cries are rare and few, but the tears that gush up and spill from the rims of his eyes now are without shame and restraint as they just keep flowing, tracing wet lines down his cheeks and dripping from his chin. He doesn't try to hide them or wipe them away as it finally occurs to him how stupid the 'men don't cry' rule is, for what he holds in his arms is the most beautiful, amazing, miraculous thing he's ever laid eyes on; he'd have to be bereft of a soul not to cry.
The emotion that fills his heart as he gazes down at his newborn son is raw and utterly overwhelming. He has never been happier.

What Love IsWhen I was a teenager, I thought I knew what love is. I thought I saw love everywhere on Valentine's Day. Couples walking hand-in-hand, kissing, hugging, flowers, heart-shaped candy, those chocolates you buy in a red heart-shaped box. I observed these things as the years went by first with disgust, then discomfort, then a strange mixture of fear and longing as I wondered what I would do if I was one of those smitten men walking along the street hand-in-hand with some beautiful woman.What Love Is5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
When I was in my early twenties, I thought I knew what love is. I remember my gradual realization that yes, Winry is more to me than just a childhood friend. It was odd, after all those times of insisting that we were only friends, to stand on her front porch and look into her blue eyes...and know that I love her. It took me a while to dredge up the nerve to tell her, but finally I did. On the second morning after I arrived, while Winry was putting the final touches on my arm, I lay on my stomach wi

Whenever I saw him at the office, he was always so serious; only smiling when he was calling me sh-Not his height. And he's always frowning and sad; the memories of Ishbal, and the other things he has done must cloud his mind.
He seemed to be much more relaxed these past few days; now, there wasn't a frown marring his face, just a small peaceful smile that left his mouth slightly opened.
'He deserves this peace,' I thought to myself as I nuzzled his collarbone with my nose.

It's a mistake.
They hadn't been trying for another; they were just young parents trying to deal with one helpless baby, not to mention stumbling through marriage after growing up with hardly any role models. They didn't need another child added to the mix. But there was nothing she could do. The life had already begun inside her, and she knew now what that meant. She knew it would grow and grow, till it finally burst forth with blood and pain, and then there would be another baby crying to be fed, to be held, to be cared for and loved.
Helplessly wiping away a few tears, Winry stood up again and flushed the toilet. When she stepped into the bedroom, Nina stopped bawling and waited, watching her pathetically, begging with her glistening gold eyes to be picked up. So Wi

Brother and I had just gotten back to Central from looking for the Philosopher's Stone again. Colonel had given us a bad lead again. However, we did catch some criminals the military was after.
But Brother wasn't very happy about that. He believed Colonel sent us out there just so that we would have to help catch them. So basically, the Colonel had told us there was a lead for the Philosopher's Stone in the West when he knew there was no such lead.
I wasn't sure what to think.
Brother had just gone into have his usual meeting with Mustang after our mission.
I was left out, due to the fact that I'm not military personnel. So I was left to walk around Headquarters.

Mini Wheats: The BeginningIt's funny when a future father panics once he sees his wife in labor. Once he sees the smallest wince on her face, he races around the house to grab suitcases he packed weeks ago with clothes, tooth brush and paste, coloring books in case she was bored, baby clothes that included socks and knitted hats, diapers, the video camera, five books, trail mix in case the hospital food was bad and for some reason, the Scrabble board game. Once he stuffed the car with all seven suit cases, he jumped inside, started the car and sped out the door. It took him several seconds before he realized Chell was standing at the doorway with a confused look on her face as she watched him drive off without her. He did an illegal U-turn, made tire marks on the front lawn and pushed her into the car, saying he was sorry throughout the ten minute drive to the hospital.Mini Wheats: The Beginning3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The colonel sighed, shaking his head at the blond before looking at his bother. Al's hazel eyes rolled and he shrugged before answering the silent question, "He's always been like this," He murmured softly as he popped another fry into his mouth.
Al finished his fries and grabbed the remains of his meal. He then waved goodbye and threw out his trash before walking out of the restaurant.

You were smartly dressed,
A bow at your neck,
A flower on your breast.
Your skin was pale,
Showing the reality of death.
But now you're even paler,
You glow like the moon.
The tears that fall
From your corpse eyes
Are like diamonds in the air.
And as you sink your teeth
Into my throat,
All I can do is moan.
Rationalizing the NumeratorRelationships in this modern world seem to be a short lived thing, not usually lasting more than a few months, with true love becoming rarer and rarer. Why is it so? Our generation is a rash one, running into things headlong without giving it a second thought. But ah, is not love just the need to be held by someone, to be with them? While that may be true, to make a relationship work, a rational aspect has to be present as well. The irrational elements to avoid are radically changing yourself, unrealistic expectations and a belief that it will all just work without any effort.Rationalizing the Numerator6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

It’s normal, as it would be impossible for differences to not exist between people, and overcoming these differences will make the relationship more stable.
