The Winter Soldier - Capter 4 (Final Chapter): Missing Assassin
You had fallen asleep on the couch a few times – or past out, you didn’t know what it was anymore. You had followed the news, which had, as you expected, broadcasted the whole fight between Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. from a helicopter. You swore you saw Bucky several times, but when he was on a mission he didn’t seem the man you knew from your times alone. The media made him seem cold and cruel, even though you knew that was not who he really was or wanted to be.
When the wound on your stomach started to bleed again, you took out the first aid kit you had stored somewhere in your kitchen. The improvised stitches had let go. With some paper towels and alcohol you cleaned your stomach before attempting to stitch the wound again.
You bit down on your teeth hard as the needle went in the sensitive skin. You cursed softly thinking about the morphine you had left behind in the Hydra lab. You wouldn’t

Steve-x-Reader: Raining Men
Steve Rogers, the one and only Captain America, had never believed himself to be a particularly soulful man- in fact he’d never even considered such a thought. But despite this, his live-in roommate and ward- (F/n) (L/n) had decided that he housed hidden qualities that made him the perfect ‘Soul-Brutha’ material.
Now what this actually meant, Steve couldn't say. But the man did know was that he would enjoy being a potential Soul Brutha, if it meant that (F/n) was happy. And from all the obvious signs, the young woman was.
Where she had once been mistrusting and skittish, she now seemed at ease, laughing and joking with him on near constant basis. It was a nice change from the abused, disheartened eighteen year-old that Steve had found on the streets nearly twelve months ago.
Now, after the near

‘Avengers assemble!’ Nick Fury’s voice echoed through Stark Tower. ‘I repeat Avengers assemble!’
You were wobbling nervously on your feet. You had obviously heard of the Avengers after everything that happened in New York the last couple of years, but even though you were a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, you had never actually met them.
You had only been an agent in training during the attack of New York and when S.H.I.E.L.D. got attacked by Hydra you were knocked unconscious by one of the members of the S.T.R.I.K.E. team. You were one of the few agents Fury still fully trusted.
When he had come to you only several days ago to ask you to join the Avengers, you had laughed in his face.
‘I don’t have any special powers!’ you had cried out.
Fury had frowned at you, probably remembering your ‘vibes’, as you called your instinctive shivers you would get every time something bad was going to happen.

I've had too much
I've had enough
Too many sleepless nights
Too many miserable days
Too much of black and white
Too much of grieve and pain
Enough is enough
And that is where it ends
I wanna be myself
I wanna live again
I want to smile
And laugh like crazy
I want to cry
From being happy
I wanna colors back into my life
I've had enough of black and white
I just want to live and breathe and feel
I want to be alive again, I just want to be me
To Catch MeIt was another one of those nights where Dick had sought out for his boyfriend's warmth so as to sleep peacefully. He was currently curled up against Wally's bare back, rising and falling with each breath, both submersed in a deep sleep. Dick was in a dream. He dreamt that he was back at the circus, performing one of his favorite routines alongside his loving parents. He was laughing and grinning widely, enjoying the feel of flying through the air with so much ease. Outside his dreams, Dick was slowly rolling away from Wally across the bed, heading straight for the edge of the bed.To Catch Me4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
In his dream the frequency between flips and airborne sumersaults increased, the tempo of their act increasing at an alarming rate.

I was taught to believe Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Also to me Christianity seems to be the only religion that has a real documentary, The Holy Bible.
To believe in something you have to believe it yourself.
But how am I supposed to believe, when there is war, other faiths, people who do sin and tempt you to sin too, and also so many influences in the world that make you forget all source of religion.
I want to believe in a religion, my cousin was raised catholic and she was looking for something more in life.

Fionna blushed a deep red as tears blurred her vision. "Marshall! Don't do this to me… Not now…" She looked down at the vampire feeling confused and scared.
Suddenly Marshall sat up and exclaimed, "Faking it! Faking it! My shirt is like full of cream puffs right now." He pulled out the stake, watching Fionna's face. "Glob, Fionna, you're like the realest person I know."
Her eyebrows knit together and she balled up her fist, hitting Marshall across the face.

She jumped off the stone alter and rushed down the path. Her hands were fists by her sides. Cake was quick to follow.

Samantha's RunI wasn't afraid when I fell through the world, not at first. I think I was too surprised to be afraid, as if what I was seeing was too impossible to comprehend. It was dark, yet there was light, suffusing the air like dust motes and I could discern any one source, and it gave the entire space a cloudy impression, as if there were bulges and ridges scattered about, impressions of terrain in pockets here and there, trailing off and dissolving once more into the darkness. I floated, weightless, and it wasn't until I focused on this – that I was flying in this empty space – that I fell.Samantha's Run7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
That was when fear seized me, so tight in my chest I couldn't breath, couldn't scream. I just tumbled, stretching out my fingers and toes for any sort of purchase, falling through the endless dark until I thought my heart would burst in my chest from terror. Then I hit something solid, or rather, it caught me. It was like landing on sand, only it gave and gave
Renfield's ClockThe package had no label or return address. It was just left on my front porch, wrapped in layers and layers of packing tape and cardboard, square and slim, about a foot and half in length. It was heavy as I picked it up and rather than open it there on the front porch, I brought it inside, and sealed my doom.Renfield's Clock11 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Inside, I found a clock. It was clearly old, the rim ornately decorated with motifs of vines, and while I was no expert the material was suspiciously reminiscent of gold. It had to be valuable. I was bewildered as to why I'd find such a thing left on my front porch. I turned it over, inspecting each side of it, and that was when the note that had been tacked to the back slipped off.
'To the person who receives this,' the note read, 'I don't know you and I'm really sorry, but I had to get rid of this. It's killed both my husband and children and now it wants me. I'm sorry.'
For a long moment, I just sat there, the note in my hands, s

A Percy/Nico One-Shot
Percy Jackson was determined to break the ice between Nico di Angelo and himself. It wasn't that there was much between the two sons of the Big Three to break, but it was perhaps the hardest obstacle between them that the son of Poseidon needed to get through. Percy had been trying, for a long time, to melt the ice around Nico's heart, to get the younger demigod to finally warm back up to him.
Though Nico was no longer angry with Percy for Bianca's death and had even become a friend to him, the son of Hades was still quite distant with him. Annabeth and Grover had told him that the younger demigod was like that with everyone and, to an extent, that was true; Nico kept to himself for the most part, choosing only a select few to socialize with - if one could consider Nico's presence, quiet nods and blunt input as socializing.
Percy knew that, despite his friends' reassurance, Nico shielded himself from him in particular. He'd seen how Nico ac

Nico stared off into the distance, gazing over the green hills of Half-Blood from his cabin porch. He recalled the time he’d tried to block out of his memory, the time when he had just arrived and met Percy. He was just a kid then, and his Mythomagic game was his life. Then he came to Camp Half-Blood. It was all a blur: he’d seen his teacher turn into a manticore, whisked off on a flying bus/sports car/chariot by a conceited Apollo and dropped off at a camp where there were kids like him, kids of Greek lineage. And not just any Greek, they were the kids of Greek gods. He was incredibly impressed by Percy- he rescued Nico from his school and brought him here. He also had an awesome pen-sword, Riptide. Annabeth had gone and jumped off of her cliff and Luke had captured her after; it all seemed very unreal and cartoon-action life. Almost like a dream. Nico leaned against the Hades cabin porch rail
Far from home-1Deep breathing and groaning filled my ears as I neared the clearing. Stuffing the alder bark I had been stripping hastily into one of my many pockets, I pulled my huge trench coat tighter around my slim frame, and slowly slid my sword from it’s sheath, the steel hissing against the leather scabbard. Keeping to the shadows of the trees, I darted between the trunks. Swift and silent, I told myself, my heart in my throat.Far from home-11 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Steeling myself for the possibilities of what lay in the clearing, I checked the runes on my sword were clear, in case the deep breathing thing was undead. Probably some injured animal, but it was the predator that injured it that worried me more. The nights were getting longer, and the forest was filling up with animals I’d rather not encounter if I was being fussy, giant spiders, wolf-men, hags and even some reports of maugs, awful spirits that wore dead flesh like clothes.
I crept round the tree I hid behind, and froze. The creature was no creature, but a

FFM July 2 - The Gas maskLet me tell you a story about waking up under water. No, not literally waking up under water, but that very same feeling. It's also a story about oxygen. Have any of you ever thought about oxygen, how important it is? Oh, sure, you've held your breath for sixty seconds, felt that surge of pleasant panic. Pleasant because all it takes is to open your mouth and let that sweet, sweet oxygen come back in. Except have you ever thought about what would happen if at that very instant, when you've held your breath for as long as you could someone would come along and dunk you head-first into water? You would suddenly realize you have no power in your limbs to fight; your grandmother could drown you then. If you draw in breath, you will die, but you have to draw in breath. You have to or you will die. No-one really wants to think any further than that, lest they really do start choking.FFM July 2 - The Gas mask6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This

Ravens of WarDonovan Ashton was greeted by only one Raven. His Raven, to be precise. She stood at the end of the narrow hangar, just outside of the marked yellow lines, with her hands folded behind her back. She was dressed in black, her skirt to her knees, her shirt clinging to her body from wrist to just under the chin. Curiously, she was barefoot, and her black hair was to her waist and cut in a severe line across the forehead. The Prime Terras of Foerster unbuckled from his seat, ignoring his pilot's protest that the landing sequence wasn't done yet, and leaned forward across the dash to get a better look, such as he could as the small craft bobbed in its descent. There was a lurch, he swayed as it settled to the ground, and the engines whined as they shut down.Ravens of War3 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
