It was near the end of my freshman year at Goode High School when I first met him. I guess you could say it was an ordinary day, the fire department had just finished putting out the fire in the gym and this trouble maker named Percy Jackson was on the run again. This was the third time this year the gym had gone up in flames thanks to Percy Jackson, and when he was caught and questioned he would somehow convince everyone that he was innocent. I have no idea how he does it.
Anyway, I should probably introduce myself. Obviously my name is Kat. You could call me Goth, punk, crazy, emo, it doesn't matter I've heard it all before. I like to dress in black, big black, long sleeve shirts in the middle of summer, blue jeans, and normally my red combat boots or black high-tops. Today was combat boots and a black sweater. My hair is a totally different story, so I'll give you the short version. I got it cut really short in the back and longer in the front, I like to curl the long strands f

Chapter Thirty-Three: No Regrets
It seemed to take ages to reach her home, parking just within the dream sand barrier the Sandman had created and finally shutting her car off. With shaking hands, Rowan took her bag from the back seat before slipping out of her car.
Jack climbed down from the roof of the jeep, following her as she reached the front door and fought her trembling hands to slide the key in the lock. Once inside, she flipped every switch on the nearby wall to turn on every light in the front room. She felt sick; her heart still would not slow. Would they have gotten away if the Sandman hadn't sent one of his pets to help?
As she hung her coat and removed her boots, Jack closed and locked the front door behind him. She turned back to him, unsure what to say. She was still shaken from the experience. Rowan had wanted nothing but to have Jack return and now that he had, after everything that happened the past half hour, she had no idea what to say.

The rest of the team had vacated the base via bioship and had radioed the Justice League only moments before the blasts began. Megan veered the ship sharply and flew back as fast as it could take them towards the crumbling base.
Large chunks of rocks were falling into the surrounding ocean and from their open gashes towers of flame shot fourth. The entire mountain was rumbling, fracturing at the seams, shattering into millions of stinging bits of rock and metal. The entire base was being blown apart and there was nothing they could do to stop it.
"ARTEMIS!" Megan cried as an especially large shockwave sent them hurdling back to shore.
The mountain fell in on itself. Everything had been destroyed. Nothing but a leveled pile of rubble remained.

His flight was leaving in three days and he had to find Vash before he went back to Austria.
The trip back seemed to pass before he even noticed he had started walking.
His mind was spinning while he tried to figure out even ONE place where Gilbert might be.
He sighed before unlocking the door to his room, eyes on the ground.
When he stepped inside, he raised his gaze and jumped back.
Lying across his bed in only his undershirt and boxers, was Gilbert.

It's cold, so very fucking cold. The kind of cold that eats into your bones and drives you mad. No wonder Ivan is so batshit crazy, who wouldn't be after living centuries in this terrible cold.
The small room he has me in has no windows and no furniture; just a bed, pale yellow walls, and a small bathroom. There was a chair, but I smashed it over Ivan's head when I first got here. How long ago was that?
I don't know what day it is. I don't know how long I've been here. Days, weeks, months it's all the same. The only light is the bare bulb dangling from the ceiling, and the only sound I can hear is the unceasing howl of the wind outside.
I don't even know if it's day or night. It could be midnight. Maybe it is midnight, midnight on the west coast. Midnight in San Francisco, on the water front, with the stars flickering over the golden gate bridge. I wonder if the bridge is even still standing. I wonder if anything is still standing.

They heard moving feet before the door opened.
"Vhat is it?" Germany asked.
"Is your brother here?"
"Ja," he said slightly confused. "He's downstairs."
He stepped out of the way and let the two men pass him into the house.
He led them to a door.
"Zhat leads down to his room. You can go see him."
"Thank you," Arthur said politely and turned to Roderich. "Come on. Let's go get Vash back."
Roderich nodded and followed him into the basement.
They climbed down a long way and finally reached a door.
"He's on the other side. Are you ready?"
Arthur grasped the knob and threw the door open.
The room was rather large and it was obvious it used to be several small rooms previously.
It had been turned into a den-like dwelling surrounding a familiar albino.
"Prussia! Where's Vash?!" Arthur demanded.
Gilbert smiled and sat up.
"Busy." He pointed over their shoulders and they turned to see Vash in a birdcage.

Then Prussia noticed that England was out of bed too. He must not have been able to wait for his presents either.
Prussia thought that he would surprise England. Maybe even sneak up behind him and kiss him on his courageous lips. That always made England beautiful.
Prussia crept angrily down the stairs and into the living room. There was the tree, with its romantic lights, and the presents, heaped up shrewdly, and the mistletoe hanging from the ceiling, and England. Kissing someone.
Prussia was so angry, he picked up a snow from a table and threw it crappily on a hat.
They both looked around.

Goku glanced down at the shattered pieces of what used to be his door knob, something that had felt the princes wrath just seconds before. He could feel the princes ki flare up once the young girl named Chichi came and broke up their little argument about this whole arranged marriage nonsense. Seeing the confusion and fright that flickered over the girls face made Goku feel guilty and wanted to apologize to her for Vegeta's behavior, it wasn't her fault.
"I, um... was told to come here directly since the lord cannot leave his room....?", said Chichi, making her sentence seem more like a questions. It seemed strange to her that such a powerful man was more or less a prisoner within his own room but she wasn't about to ask why that is, why he would allow himself to be ordered around like he is.

He was going to see none other than Sango Honda, the dear twin sister of his best friend, Kiku Honda, to confess his love.
Alfred couldn't deny that this felt weird to him though. It seemed sudden, but he couldn't really hold it back any longer. Ever since he'd met her, he felt the overwhelming urge that he could only identify as love. It was such an accidental and awkward meeting too.
It was a chill, winter morning at the World Meeting, while everyone waited at their appropriate seating.

The last 24 hours hadn't gone well for the Fabulous Killjoys, Fun Ghoul in particular. A raid on a BL/Ind supply house had left them with a variety of injuries. And no supplies. Then, they ended up with a flat on Route Guano somewhere between Zones 3 and 4, only to find out that they had no spare. It took a few hours and a heated argument between Party Poison and Jet Star before they decided to call for help. At least Show Pony was on his way out, but unfortunately he wouldn't be there until the morning.
So that's how Fun Ghoul ended up sitting on the hood of their beloved rusty Trans Am, watching the embers of their slowly dying fire flicker before the dawning sun.

Mrs. Hudson had done most of the work. She knew John felt guilty, but she also knew he just couldn't bring himself to help, and so, when push came to shove, she hadn't pressed him. After all, she really didn't mind. And that was why, when it finally came time to box up all of Sherlock's things, Mrs. Hudson had been the one to do it. Clothes, books, furniture, stacks and stacks of files and old police reports, the vast array of chemistry equipment, all the chemicals.
In time, the flat was turned inside out: drawers were emptied, cupboards cleaned, and properly this time, the way they should have been from the start. Mrs. Hudson ran her pale hands across everything. There was, after all, a certain sanctity to it: each object was like unearthing a piece of Sherlock, getting to know him a second time over. The harpoon she discovered stashed in the bedroom closet had her laughing so hard her sides began to hurt. Other finds were more troubling, like the small handful of needl

One pull would end him forever, she would never hear his voice or feel his touch ever again, tears welled up in her eyes at the thought.

It held all the comforts of the modern age, including a California king sized bed, large enough so his feet didn't dangle off the end of the bed when he slept. He had no pictures on the walls, no adornments of any kind on the coffee table or the couch.
There were no tables with vases of flowers on them in the hall, no area rugs to brighten the space and make it more livable. There was nothing in the apartment that made it feel like home. Instead, it gave off the vibe of exactly what it was. Somewhere to rest your head in-between jobs.

Tristen held her breath as she slowly stepped out of the shadows at long last. She had been hiding behind large stacks of unpacked boxes in the museum warehouse for the past two hours, waiting impatiently for an opening. The lights flickered dimly overhead, and the smallest sounds from outside reverberated with a ghostly echo inside the building. The room was finally empty enough to risk abandoning her hiding place amongst walls of cardboard.
She inched her way towards the far west wall, maintaining a catlike stance as she tiptoed her way to the large and plain desk she had been eyeing. It was placed in an office-like environment that was built discreetly into the warehouse, blending in subtly with the boxes and crates that filled the building to the brim and served as makeshift walls. Without incident, she slinked across the smooth concrete floor and reached the desk and began to open and close the largest compartments, quietly searching, careful not to disturb the sliding metal and m

He sat up abruptly, brows creasing into a frown. Warm? He peered more closely, and saw the faint flush of colour that graced Alfred’s cheeks. His eyelid fluttered and he slowly licked the last of the blood off his lips, tongue lingering uncertainly over the scarlet droplets.
And then, suddenly, he shot upright, coughing and spluttering, blinking and cross-eyed in a disgusted attempt to look at his own lips. “Ewww!

Jade lay in her hard bed, eyes closed and ears perked. Someone was outside her door, and she didn't trust the Shadows to not come and pull one on her. She gently felt for the knife that was under her pillow, touching the hard wooden handle, fingers wrapping around it. As the doorknob squeaked, she gripped the blade, ears ready for the slightest sound which might indicate the intruder was armed.
As the door kept creaking open, Jade's eyebrows scrunched together, and as the light poured in, her eyes shot open, pulling the knife out and stnup, holding it in position to strike.
A figure sneaked in, and in the dim light, she made out Artemis' distinct form, long blonde hair giving her away. Her grip on the knife lessening slightly, but the older woman was still adamant.

Inside the bag was a dozen tomato and cheese sandwhiches and 4 canteens filled with stagnant water.

Ivan looked down at the wolf now standing next to Alfred. Throughout most of Ivan's history, wolves were seen as nothing more than vermin, detestable opportunistic creatures not worthy of mercy or kindness. Its eye color was not lost on Ivan either; clearly this was not a real wolf which made it even more dangerous.
"Alfred, in this country we have lots of stories we tell to our children of what happens when people follow wolves into the woods, and none of them end well!"
Alfred just rolled his eyes, "Ivan, It's not just a wolf."
"Yes Alfred I know, I just heard you call it dad!" Ivan said shooting Alfred an incredulous glance.
Alfred just waived him off, "That was my mistake, he's not dad. I have no idea why or how he's here, but he wants to help us. I can feel it." Alfred said as the wolf pulled his ears back and glared at Ivan.
Ivan debated whether Alfred needed to feel the pipe on the back of his head as well.
