There are few things you love more than watching the sky. Vast and silent, like a giant blanket, dotted with millions of bright lights at night. No walls, no titans, just an endless blue as long as the eye can see. This must be what true freedom looks like.
As a child, you would always watch the sky with awe, wondering if God was looking down at you just as you were looking up at him.
Does he see me? You wondered. Does he care?
“God is great and powerful, and all humans are loved by him,” your mother once told you. Your grandfather, who happened to be within earshot, had let out a loud snort. “Either God is cruel or he’s not able to change a damn shit about the world,” he had declared, before being stonewalled by your mother.
You used to visit your grandparents every other weekend. Every time you arrived at their house, you found your grandfather sitting on the porch, smoking his beloved cigars and humming out of tune. When he spotte

It had been awhile before I left the park, the area had started to fill with people and some were looking at me strangely. I no lay on my bed trying to figure out the letters. There was nothing strange about them other than the fact that they left a sense of dread in me. A yawn escaped me and I tried to clear my thoughts so that I could try and sleep.
“Come on, Carrot Top! Catch me!” A little girl ran from me while laughing. Again she flickered and blurred like the previous dream.
“Don’t call me that.” I was startled by the second voice. A little boy ran by, most likely after the girl. It took me a minute to figure out that it was me.
I’ll call you whatever I want, Carrot Top.” The girl had stopped and turned to glare at the younger me. Her anger at being told what to do was very obvious. “I’m your queen.” She whispered this part harshly; and though younger me hadn’t heard it, I had.

The fog thickened in the faint light of an all white rising sun, and settled into London's Trafalgar Square, as if the clouds themselves had descended from the glowing grey heavens above, blanketing all in mist and mistique. The normally bustling beloved locale was nearly vacant due to the earliness of the hour, and the strangeness of the weather. There was however, one lovely young woman seated on a bench in the square, not repelled by the fog like so many, but attracted to it like one chasing a dream. This was heaven, her heaven, when modern day London was transformed by all the alluring secrets, and mysterious beauty of the past into the setting of stories she so loved, the very air alive with romance, danger, and intrigue. A feeling that was left in another time, that beckoned to her, reaching for her even now. She smiled softly to herself, breathing it all in, letting it overwhelm her senses. She pulled her posh lavender pea coat a bit tighter, smiling to herself, watching the whi

Edward Elric didn't know whether to laugh or back away slowly.
Roy Mustang was asleep on the couch in his office, an amused looking Maes Hughes prodding him in the shoulder.
Maes turned around and grinned at Ed. "He was stressed, so I told him to just take a drink." He rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly. "Didn't end well."
"He got drunk at work?" Ed asked, completely confused. That was definitely a NOT a Roy Mustang thing to do.
"Technically, he was done with work. He just got to jumpy too drive, and then too drunk " He shrugged, guilty smile still in place.
Ed paused, turning his attention to Roy's open shirt. He smirked as a plan began to form in his mind.
"Hey, Hughes?" Maes looked up at the blonde. "Awkward question but, has Roy ever slept with a guy?"
Maes's eyes widened in shock before answering in a perplexed tone, "A couple times Why?"
"Oh no reason." Ed forced the smirk off his face. "Hey, you should go home. Gracia must be wondering why you aren'

"The wizard boy has enchanted you, I know this....." Loki said to her softly, turning his raven-haired head just slightly as he stroked her long, sweeping curls. "For every frustation the two of you appear to be a matching set......But I am honored to hold the light of your favor for however long it lasts, even if its brilliance is as fleeting as the day." He offered her a coy half smile, his piercing blue eyes filling with light as he took her hand. "For truly, how might even I hold such beauty forever? Allyssa Summerhaze grinned and blushed, very much enjoying the Asguardian's soft, gentle touch, feeling oddly soothed by his very presence, longing to be closer to him. She looked up into such startling blue eyes, with bashful admiration, running her thumb across the top of his fingers. "If my favor is the light you hold, then you hold the very sun in your hands, even now, fair Loki."
Loki couldn't help it. He grinned his widest and most dazzling yet, his eyes softening, crinkling at t

He smiled as he got up from his desk and crept through the kitchen. Bruce was still at work and Alfred had gone grocery shopping. He rummaged through the cabinets and the fridge. He found a few cases of beer in the back of the fridge. He grabbed a six-pack that was tucked away and ran up to his room.
He opened the first beer and sighed. He drank some of the can and almost spit it out on the floor. He chugged the rest of the beer, doing his best not to taste it. He opened a second, a third, and the rest of the pack. He felt a buzz coming over him as he was drinking.
Dick heard the garage door opening. He hid the cans in his shower and walked out of his room and over to the banister to see who it was.

It was a normal day in Konoha. (y/n) was walking around the streets, hoping to catch a glance of her best friend, Shikamaru. Usually he would be hanging around his family's forest or the village valley, or anywhere he could watch clouds without being disturbed.
(Y/N) faceplamed as she mumbled to herself "He's the laziest ninja in the whole village, but when it comes to where he's going to relax he'll go sixteen extra lengths" She grumbled angrily to herself as she stomped through the village, with a face that might as well have had pissed written on it in large bold letters.

“Aqualad, come in Aqualad. M’gann? Artemis? Superboy?” Robin tried to use his com-link to communicate with his team but to no avail. He turned to Kid Flash, “Can you reach them?’
“Nope, should we abandon our post and try to find them?”
“It sounds like that’s what Aqualad wanted us to do.”
“Yea, I mean we already took out the guards here.”
“You go see if you can find them. I’ll make sure that the target doesn’t come this way.”

The war had ended in the night as quickly as it had begun. The city raged below, the people pulling together in their time of crisis, working to put back their broken city. Their homes. Their lives.
Two watchful figures stood on an overlooking hillside outside the city, their eyes shining in the glow of the fires below. A man and a boy. Silent. Their long capes swayed with the wind, though they were unmoved.
"It's strange to see them working together like that. Usually they're clawing each others throats," the boy said, breaking the lull.
He saw the man move, but only slightly. The darkness gave their emotions cover. "There will come a day when the world no longer needs heroes like you and me. Humanity will find that it's able to stand on its own, without out help," the man said to the younger as they watched over the work they had set in motion continuing in the city below.
"Maybe," the boy said quietly. He wanted to believe his mentor, but he had seen too much evil to thin

He could tell because at that moment he hit his bathroom mirror with heat vision, the reflected beams knocking the tiles off the ceiling. He blinked as he took the image in the mirror in. He had gained several pounds of muscle, and he felt that his entire body structure felt thicker. His stomach, which he had been trying to turn into a six pack with that new fitness gizmo Booster was promoting ("Five easy payments of $99.95, but for you, Ted, just $99.

My heart pounded violently, in a mad rush to escape my chest. Khan's dark velvet voice sounded far away as if commanding me from a great distance, and I struggled to make sense of any of it. I was baffled by these two words that simply couldn't belong together. I felt my breath quickening as I stared up at him from my place on the bench that had been moved to the middle of the Vengeance's hangar. I looked around at the six black mats that had also been placed there, two rows of three, and shook my head vehemently. He couldn't be serious.
"NO!!!! No, absolutely NOT!! I- I can't!!!"
My protest was pleading, yet stubborn and I crossed my arms over my chest to prove my resolve. What Khan was asking, was the impossible. I felt my mind instantly torn between the natural impulse to do exactly what he wanted of me, and the obvious conclusion that this was NOT something I could physically bring myself to do. The very reason, the very whim, that created the need in me to obey him, w

The explosion shot violently across the scorching desert sky in fiery plumes, the image searing my eyes, and resounding in my afflicted mind. The deafening roar, the horrified, confused screams, the prolonged groan of mangled titanium making swift impact with the dunes, burning sand raining down, all of it culminating in such a symphony of sorrow, causing me to shake. The speeding starship, ablaze, screaming at breakneck speed towards its doom, desecrated, getting torn to silver shreds. There's a faint sound of shattering glass accompanying the more painful roars as an officer is thrown through the bridge window, dropping hard into the swirling sands, already dead. There's nothing left to identify the ill-fated vessel now, save for some badly burned off lettering, and I can only make out a barely intelligible, "VAL."
I felt my body toss and turn, shaking violently now. The ship ceased its groaning, dead. The screams felt louder and louder until they consumed my entire conscious. Starfl
