Among the Ashes
Like a gift from the heavens
It was easy to tell
It was love from above that could save me from hell
She had fire in her soul
It was easy to see
How the devil himself could be pulled out of me
There were drums in the air as she started to dance
Every soul in the room keeping time with their hands
Like a piece to the puzzle that falls into place
You could tell how we felt from the look on our faces
We was spinning in circles with the moon in our eyes
No room left to move in between you and I
We forgot where we were and we lost track of time
And we sang to the wind as we danced on into the night

A frown fell over his eyes and his nose wrinkled as he bared his teeth and clenched his fists. “For the first time in my career, I knew what it felt like to hate someone,” he said, almost in a hiss. “Pure hatred. Only a handful of Toons nowadays who aren’t villains can feel that, or have at one point, without becoming evil. My creator had tried to keep me from ever feeling that.

That was all that could be seen from behind my shut eyelids. However, I was used to this sight devoid of light yet…this time it felt more desolate and melancholic than usual.
A face-- her face-- filled my mind for a brief second; filled with pain and fear.
Then I saw the never-ending darkness once more and a high-pitched tone ringing through my ears was the only thing I could hear from the unknown place around me.
Yet, voices still resonated in my mind.
“No! Don’t let go! Just a little longer…Come on! Hang on!”
“N-N-No! I can’t…hold on…!”
I tried to open my eyes but to no avail—it was like they were glued shut. I couldn’t’ move…I couldn’t speak…I-I didn’t know if she was still with me anymore.
That darned tone didn’t waver as I laid there unmoving; it just kept ringing and ringing.
And as the darkness became too much, even for me, I heard <I>

He didn't know what would be waiting for him inside the vortex. He didn't know if the fall would kill him or if something would be waiting for him on the other side. He knew just one thing.
He felt scared.
Thor held Gungnir even tighter as he saw his brother looking down into the spinning fluid, an enigmatic look in his eyes. He didn't want to fall; yet, he understood everything had gone too far. He just wanted to finish this, to let go, to forget it all. There was no reason to live anymore...
Thor smiled, trying to confort him with a look that said there was still hope, that they could fix everything together. Eve

Among the Ashes
There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold
But you sing to me over and over and over again
Sing to me the song of the stars
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again
I give you my destiny
I'm giving you all of me
I want your symphony, singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs, I'm giving it back
So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray, to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope

Arthur was smiling. Really smiling.
He was smiling for the first time in years since he had met Alfred though sadly he had also quickly snatched away the memories to save his love's life. It was worth it. Just to see Alfred everyday smiling and healthy. Not bleeding and dying because of Arthur's mistakes like that last night they ever had together. It was worth it, even if the younger boy no longer had any idea who he was.
Or at least that was what Arthur thought. He remembered how the lonely years passed after he turned back time so he and Alfred had never met. How he had saved his lover's life. It still brought those icy tears into his eyes.
But Arthur couldn't believe, he didn't at first, what had happened to him after all these years.
Wistful Desire I miss the first time I saw you. Where my eyes were unwarily drawn to you like a magnet. Where my body felt light, and my feet somehow shuffled closer towards you. That was when I heard your Pokémon’s words; so filled with love and enthusiasm that it was enough to baffle me into speechlessness.Wistful Desire2 years ago in Romance More Like This
I miss the sight of your electrifying eyes. Never have I seen such beauty through a pair of irises. The moment my eyes met yours, it was as if a jolt had electrified every inch of my body, stunning me to a point where mobility seemed impossible. Tell me. Is it true that humans cannot lie with their eyes? Because when I saw yours, all I saw were a wave of emotions, swirling like a rampant tornado, throwing every single sensation that I never knew existed.
I miss the sound of your voice. Although your tone was sometimes harsh towards me, that never stopped the fact that it became a song that chimed beautifully in my mind. Unlike others, you rarely showed fear. Unl

I lead Prussia, France and Spain to a table in the back, smirking at them basically drooling over the fact I was in a tricked-out trapeze artist hooters uniform. Prussia, in particular, couldn't take his eyes off my ass. So, the 'great' Prussia's an ass man? Noted.
France, on the other hand, was gazing around out the different worker girls, flirting around and blowing kisses, while Spain busied himself by lecturing me like an older brother would if he discovered his little sister worked at a fucked up Korean owned Hooters for minimum wage getting hefty tips for horny guys that could possibly be stalking her any moment of the day.
"Are you even listening to me, _______?" Spain growled, knocking Prussia to the side slightly and following closely behind me.

Sherlock's Shadowy Past - p1John had a lot of things on his mind on January 13th. He had effectively been avoiding taxis after his first adventure with his new flat-mate Sherlock Holmes. Occasionally he rode in them when Sherlock was with him, mostly because he didn't want to look like a complete wimp, but on the whole John had avoided cabs for the last several months. But Sherlock didn't shop. For anything. Ever. So he had spent the better part of the morning riding the tube to various parts of London picking up an equally assorted array of groceries. He was currently carrying, among other things, formaldehyde, eggs, toothpaste, bullets and a vast quantity of milk. God only knew what Sherlock had been doing with the last six containers that had been bought in the last week, maybe just pouring it down the drain, but John was getting awfully tiered of waking up to dry breakfast cereal because a certain flat-mate had used/drank/poured out all of it.

A bright light occurred between girl and beast. Amidst the brief blindness of it all, a wicked wave of water suddenly forced its way toward the fire, countering it and finally, extinguishing it into nothing but black smoke.

She looked out the window as snow began to fall. The clear white flakes drifted softly upon the house, sticking to the windows and melting as her hot breath dissolved them from the inside. Her palm flattened against the glass, her lips pressed in a thin line.
Where are you...
Two children played around inside, one giggling and running from an Arcanine, who quickly caught her and nuzzled her stomach with his nose. The other, a seven year old with the rim of his glasses pushed far up the bridge of his nose, sketched out the happy scene for future reviews of it.
The last child sat on her lap, his innocent blue eyes searching the street, his mouth parted, hot breaths fogging up the window.
"Momma, when is datty coming home?", he whimpered.
She brought him into a tight embrace, him keeping his eyes fixated on a point on the other side of the glass

Six-year-old Loki stumbled through Asgard, finally finding his way to the long, winding path that lead him up to the Rainbow Bridge. He had had enough of all of the other people in the castle. His tutors were too busy with his older brother and his education to care for Loki. He was handed a book and expected to read it for the rest of the day. So, Loki wandered the halls, trying to find Thor's friends. However, the kids were too busy with their own studies or playing games with the others. None of them really wanted Loki around to play with. He stomped away, suddenly feeling unwanted like a lost puppy. On his final idea, Loki crossed the wide expanse of the palace to finally end up at his father's quarters. However, Odin was working with Thor, trying to get the hyper boy to sit and concentrate.

I dont want to lose you
I dont want to use you
Just to have somebody by my side
And I dont want to hate you
I dont want to take you
But I dont want to be the one to cry
That dont really matter to anyone, anymore
But like a fool I keep losing my place
And I keep seeing you walk through that door
Now I could never change you
I dont want to blame you
You dont have to take the fall
Yes I may have hurt you
But I did not desert you
Maybe I just want to have it all
And like a fool who will never see the truth

And theres a danger in loving somebody too much

With a huff, you scowled at the stack of papers, close to losing grasp of self control. So this was what it was like to be a squad leader. You sauntered from your office, and gently shoved the door that opened to the great outdoors, shrouded in the glorious light of the mesmerizing moon. Dirt crackled beneath your light footsteps, your (h/c) hair swaying in the calm breeze. Sighing, you plop down with a thud onto a patch of thinly spread grass, gazing at the thousands, maybe millions, of stars with a blank expression, only your eyes spoke of your indescribable emotion.Stargazing (Levi x Reader)1 year ago in Humor More Like This

“Oh my God oh my God oh my GOD LOOK AT THAT TITAN! LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN.

The most glorious, anticipating moment of my life. The moment that has me dreaming in mirth since I was 6. The moment that brings excitement just at the simple thought of it. The moment that will change the revolution of the Pokémon world.
Yes. That moment is here. And I am alive and breathing to not only witness, but also to be participating in the magnificent mark of history. A giggle breathes through my mouth. A smile stretches upon my beautiful, cherry red lipstick. Both my hands clasp together, manicured fingers intertwining and locking to a tight grip.

She whizzed past blurs of light, reaching out for somebody, something, nobody at all. Stars. Darkness seeped everywhere, into everything. She cried out but her voice was smothered by the cosmos as she tumbled down, through, into.
Her descent slowed, and her body righted itself, toes making contact with some kind of surface. It was invisible. All was stars and all was dark. She breathed in the colors, heard the shine, tasted home. She looked up and saw herself, huge and beautiful and terrifying, eyes glowing white, brighter than any sun.
"Korra. We finally meet."
She knew that voice. It felt like she was speaking to herself in her own voice, but it was definitely male. Recognizable and unfamiliar all at once. She turned to the speaker. They'd never met, but she knew him. A man stood far from her, his features hazy, but she could make out one thing. A tattooed arrow, brilliantly white.

A/N: This project will likely contain a lot of out-of-the-box stuff like this prologue is formatted, but don't worry, most of the story will be more traditional. Saint Roku University is heavily inspired by my own alma mater, Houghton College, and I will be blatantly ripping ideas from the college here for the sake of homage and to contribute to genuineness - as will I be expressing personal experiences of mine through the narrative.
To be clear, this is an Alternate Universe story based on Avatar: The Last Airbender, but is by no means a retelling of that story. Certain events and characters will have similar roles as in The Last Airbender but ultimately that is just referential, paying tribute to the series. The story itself will be a different tale entirely. Also, I know SRU is Slippery Rock University (coincidentally also located in PA!) but this is not affiliated.

Somewhere in the arctic, 2015 - Inside a hidden HYDRA base
It had been several months since you had disappeared and even though Steve had gone on with his life, he still couldn't get you out of his head. He felt so stupid for letting you go into that control room alone. You had been part of the team for so long that he had forgotten you weren't a real agent. You had always pretended you were, but above all you were a computer and robotics specialist from MIT. You were recruited to S.H.I.E.L.D after you had tried (and succeeded) to hack into the security system (set up by Tony himself) and rolled into the Avengers team after risking your life together with Steve during the fall of S.H.I.E.LD. Steve knew he shouldn't have left you alone.
Fury didn't give him much time to dwell on his mistakes for long. New missions always followed soon after others were finished and if Steve wasn't trying to keep you from his mind, he would have said something about it.
Today was like any other.
