Day of Diversion
Cloud Strife rarely said what was on his mind, and even more so, hardly ever expressed it on his face, except his glowing blue eyes. This time, however, he couldn't help but feel a twitch in his eyebrows, as he ate his breakfast of oatmeal and raisins with some butter toast. A twinge of disappointment with a mixture of confusion and something along the lines of joy traveled throughout his body but why? Disappointment? Confusion? And joy...? What a strange combination this was. It was something important; he felt it was something he should have remembered but, he couldn't pin the thought. He felt a need to figure out the cause of this sudden awaking in him but shrugged it off and continued on with his meal and read newspaper the kids have given him, half-interested. It was something about some electric company from way-back-when.
The former president of the Shin-Ra Electric Company had been under much scrutiny after a run-in

Series: Star Ocean 4
Pairing: Faize x Lymle
Genre: Sci-fi / Romance
Faize Sheifa Beleth was engrossed in yet another electronic book. He rested his arms on his lap, his palms were facing upwards and clutching onto the top of the square clear device lit up with words. He sat upright on a seat in the common area, just outside the Calnus bridge. The common room was a circular space with a bar and kitchen. These were Eldarian 'add-ons' that could be integrated into the Calnus easily since its upgrade. There was also a seating area and a fabulous view of outer space, making the common room a perfect place to relax.
'Thump, thump, thump'.
Faize was distracted from his study by a rather persistent, irritating sound. He didn't even need to look to see who was responsible. He sighed and lowered his head slightly, hoping that would help him to concentrate.
'Thump, thump, thump'.
He looked up now and to the side irritably.

~ "Am I…still dreaming?" ~
The Lifestream was eerily quiet at this time of the day. Actually, there was always only silence that surrounded him and that was the most unnerving part. By now, Zack Fair was used to all the green swirling slowly around him, even if it was like a dagger piercing his heart. After all, it was the same shade of green as her brilliant eyes.
Aerith... Oh, how he longed to see her angelic face one more time. Did she even know that he had sacrificed himself in such a way? Perhaps the brunette thought that he had died years ago, since he'd never responded to any of her letters. Or maybe she was still waiting for him, thinking that he would come back to her one day. He didn't know which of the two was worse. Poor woman. She was the biggest sacrifice he'd made and she had no idea.
The raven-haired ex-SOLDIER let out a deep sigh. He was lying in

"Love is giving someone everything," Arthur smiled at the picture of him and a younger Alfred. "Only to have them throw it back and spit on it."
"Love is going to the ends of the earth to be with your soul mate." Natalia smirked, not even pausing from clawing open the door.
"Love is a warm body to wake up to each morning." Francis's hand trailed down the sleeping figure next to him.
"Love is knowing that, no matter what the sacrifice," Alfred put away his still hot gun. "You're family can sleep comfortably at night."
"Love is betrayal." The burning water ran gracefully over Wang Yao's back... and scar.
"Love is having a constant companion through war and peace," Roderich and Elizaveta chorused as they danced across the ballroom.
"Love is for the losers that aren't awesome enough on their own." Gilbert downed the last of his beer, no longer able to feel the tears on his cheeks.

Series: Star Ocean 3 (TTEOT)
Pairing: Albel x Fayt
Genre: Romance/ Humour
The location was Kirlsa. They were on the run from the Dragon Brigade, supposedly one of the three military powers in the southern country of Airyglyph. Everything that had happened since he left the resort planet, Hyda IV, seemed like a bad dream to Fayt, one he couldn't wake up from. Only the sting of battle kept him grounded, but he'd burned himself out. Because of his weakness Nel and Cliff had opted to remain in Kirlsa for the night. It was risky, with their pursuers not far behind, but necessary. Until then Fayt was free to roam around the struggling mining town. It was an odd feeling, being in a docile looking place, feeling the tensions of war just outside the gates and worrying about being noticed and captured at any moment. His whole world had been turned upside down in the space of a couple of days, and it was now more violent and dangerous than his battl
He Ogles When No One's Watching~ Cloud didn't bother to hide his smirk as he was pulled back into their shared bedroom. This was, without a doubt, the best birthday ever. ~He Ogles When No One's Watching1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Rule 1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.
Tifa's hair was still slightly damp by the time she finally retreated to the bedroom that she shared with Cloud, but that didn't matter; by the time Cloud came home, it would be dry and straight again anyway (not to mention silky soft, just the way Cloud liked it. And she loved the way he would run his fingers through her hair). The raven-haired beauty glanced at the alarm clock on the nightstand, seeing that she still had an hour or so left. Perfect. Maybe she could paint her nails deep red or something. Anything that could improve her looks even more.
Admittedly, she never did anything like that, because the paint would chip off within a few hours, what with all the chores she had to do all day. However, since today was Cloud's birthday,
Yes or No~ Cloud was sure of only one thing, and that one thing mattered the most right now: he was in heaven. He just had to be, because Tifa knew exactly what to do to make him feel good. ~Yes or No1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Rule 1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
Cloud was sure of only one thing, and that one thing mattered the most right now: he was in heaven. He just had to be, because Tifa knew exactly what to do to make him feel good. She was a massage goddess. All those years of her strength training hadn't changed anything about her gentleness, thank gods. She knew when and where to apply more pressure and where to be extra careful to alleviate the stress. It was as though she could read his mind. Quite honestly, Cloud couldn't possibly think of a better way to spend his first moment of summer vacation...or the rest of it, really. He was far too tired to do something else today. Fortunately for him, Tifa understood completely. Mor
Secret Addiction~ "Tifa? Why are you smelling my shirt?" ~Secret Addiction2 years ago in Humor More Like This
Believe it or not, there was a reason why Tifa hugged Cloud longer and more often lately than she ever did. Yes, the fact that he gave her butterflies had something to do with it. Another reason was that she wanted to stay as close to him as was humanly possible, but there was more to it; when she happened to discover how immensely good his aftershave smelled on him, she decided that she had every right to indulge in it from that moment on. She was his almost-but-not-quite girlfriend, after all. Besides, she was pretty sure that the ex-SOLDIER didn't mind anyway; otherwise he wouldn't hug her back.
You could even go as far as call Tifa's current...obsession a guilty pleasure. Especially what with the way she was behaving. Every morning, she would always let the blond go to the bathroom first, after the children were done, of course. In the meantime, she would prepare their breakfast. That way, she would have the bathroom all

"I'll be done soon. You'll look splendid, milady."
Felicia let herself being manipulated by her nurses and her assistants through endless sessions of washing, pampering and adjusting whatever that wasn't perfect. She just couldn't understand how other women are supposed to feel comfortable with all the time wasted to look perfect. She's been sitting here so long that her whole body is starting to ache.
She stared at her reflection in the mirror while Elizaveta was arranging her hair with valuable jewellery and radiant flowers: she was wearing a soft coral red gown decorated with the finest white laces and the royal scarlet stone brooch. It is said that it was inspired by her late mother's favourite dress; Felicia and the queen did look very alike after all. Her hair, after her hours of complains, was left down but is still getting constantly fixed by her nurse. Although her heavy outfit, beca

Lightning struck the water near the island, and two identical yelps were heard. Of course, not everyone could hear the second shout... For not everyone could see her... Except for one other, who was in a similar predicament.
"Aw come on, Namine it's just a small storm." A boy with blond hair spoke, hints of laughter in his voice, turning his head slightly towards another blond, however, this one was a girl.
"I'd feel better if we were somewhere... warmer." She whispered, although it was more of a whimper, looking out towards the window, although she could barely see anything.
"Well, the only other place is that cave, and I'm pretty sure that it would be wet, not warm." He sighed softly, trying to not let on that he felt the same way... It was pretty freezing in this little hut on the island.
"...Yeah, you're right, Roxas..." Namine sighed, in tune with another sigh as another boy spoke similar words to a girl with red hair, who seemed to be in exactly the same place, exactly the same p

For my whole life I have thought of this moment.
When it would come, how it would happen.
It is my fate, so inevitable and inescapable.
Ive always known it would come.
Ive always be prepared.
But I never realized how much it would hurt him.
He can be like a child, when lost and fragile.
A man so strong, yet so weak.
I knew him so; I did not want to let him go.
The pain I would leave him would scar him.
The regret I would give him would burden him.
My decision would break him.
As I sunk deeper into the darkness,
I saw much sadness in his eyes.
The sight pained me much; I never saw him as such.
I wanted to reach out to him.
I wanted to let him know that I was okay.
But he would never know of my presence.

But I would never return; it was only later that he would learn:
We would never be together again.

~ "So? I'm hungry for something else right now…" he muttered, his gaze fixed on her, as he licked his lips slowly. ~
Tifa took another deep breath, the small smile evident on her flawless face, because the air in the always clean and cozy kitchen was filled with the delicious aroma of almost baked cake. It was mouth-watering, really. She could almost taste it on her tongue by smelling it alone (which was why she was very tempted to just open the oven and eat the sweet treat half-baked).
For some inexplicable reason, the raven-haired woman had suddenly longed for homemade cake. It felt like ages ago since she'd baked one herself, what with all the drama and sadness that life had given all of them. Her conclusion had been: what harm could it possibly be to give in to her undisclosed desires? She knew for a

Falling deep into a slumber,
Here I stay,
There I lay.
When will it be my time?
Why do you, seem to be,
Like that one, who I held lovingly?
Two hearts, connected as one,
That guides everyone.
I know you can be strong.
Why do you feel wrong?
Why is your pain unheard?
I will be here, waiting forever.
Until you come, my love….
I will be waiting…
Here where I thought we can be free….
Those sky eyes, happily.
Never seem to lose their glow.
Yet I know,
I will have to go away.
I cannot leave you behind.
While darkness clouds your eyes.
Why is this true?
Because of you two,
I could smile,
In this world for awhile.
I could love again.
Don’t cry my friends.
I’ll always be here…
Be Mine ~ Vanille x HopeBe MineBe Mine ~ Vanille x Hope2 years ago in Romance More Like This
It was that time of year again; Hope Estheim knew this without even bothering to check a calendar. He had felt it the moment he had entered school that morning and seen his classmates being more twitterpatted and obnoxious than they normally were. And that could only mean that Valentine’s Day was soon to be upon them.
Hope scowled inwardly, glancing upwards from his purposefully isolated seat in the cafeteria. It was all around him, Student Council had made sure of that, and there was no escaping from it. Everything in Hope’s sight was red, pink, or white, starting with ridiculous quantities of ribbons, streamers, and heart shaped items and ending with the enormous poster that took up half of the cafeteria wall. How had the school administration even approved of this gaudy display?
Shaking his head, Hope gazed back down into the pages of his beloved physics book and tried to tune out all the commotion and excitement. But that was a fat chance
II. Taming the Storm: Caius x LightningThe sun was shining in New Bodhum, and the heat was naturally unbearable for the time of year. A reprieve came in the morning, and because of that the beach was crowded with the residents of the village. Children were playing and making sand castles while the adults were talking under large umbrellas or sun bathing. There was one area that was secluded from the rest of the beach, surrounded by trees and hidden by bushes. The sand was cooler there due to the trees covering it, and certainly one person was enjoying it.II. Taming the Storm: Caius x Lightning1 year ago in Romance More Like This

"I'm ok" He said and climbed the stairs, hearing Marlene and Denzel laughing at some random TV show and pushing each other around. His lips curled up slightly in a small smile as he shook his head: he liked it here, it was peaceful, at least while the two kids were in school and Tifa was at the bar working. His job was going pretty well too, it provided him with enough gil to help Tifa with the essentials, buy the children a toy or two and still allow him afford a couple of things for his bike and himself. However, he was never at ease in his room, there was a constant presence there, lurking around the lifeless place, making the piece chilly and giving it a dark aura.

Sephiroth groaned and tilted his head up, letting the cold rain wash down on his face and down his slim body. He lifted his arms to loose his hands in the length of his hair, and even though they were without shampoo, he lathered the wet through the stands.
The bathroom door creaked open quietly and seconds later Sephiroth felt two arms snake around his waist, pulling him tightly into another hot and hard body.
He smiled and lowered his head to allow the redhead to plant a plethora of butterfly kisses along his spine. He felt those lips curve in a smirk against his skin and he smiled. The shorter man's hands stroked his stomach and after a few moments, the taller man was spun around and forced back against the steamy white tiles of the bathroom wall.
Green eyes met with bright aquamarine waters before they closed and lips were forced upon lips.
