Sometimes, you wonder if you have a bona-fide addiction.
With hardly-shaking fingers, gemstones, gold billions and all manner of loot are systematically stuffed into the many pockets lining your clothing, inside your jacket and anywhere else they can conceivably fit. This castle is small and doesn't seem to have as many guards as the norm, but that doesn't mean you're willing to chance it. As it is, your knees are already beginning to cramp from crouching beside this large chest positively bursting with goodies. Really, if they don’t want things to get stolen, maybe they shouldn’t keep all their goodies in such an obvious hiding place? You didn't bring a sack- they tend to be noisy once full and if you don't make a quick getaway, then you're dead meat.
Of course, if you leave with no treasure, then death would be preferable.
A sudden rustling interrupts your train of thought, and you immediately whip around, a dagger hidden up your sleeve appearing in your hand so quickly,

Marth looked over the sleeping campgrounds, still covered with thick morning dew from the night before and sighed. The air was still and quiet as the first rays of the morning sun peeked over the large hill on which the troops had pitched their tents. Though the blinding sunlight made it difficult for him to see, Marth was able to make out a single female showdown in the distance. Surprised that anyone else would be up this early, he cautiously made his way over the figure. Once close enough to actually see what was transpiring, Marth stopped walking, tilted his head to the side and stared at you with confused eyes. “What are you doing exactly?”
“Good morning to you as well, Lord Marth. You're up early aren't you?” With a huff, you swung your sword, much too heavy for your size and weight, against a thick wooden beam. Though the air around you was cold, you could already feel your cheeks getting hot from the unfamiliar exercise.

No one hears the plea...
To save me...
So maybe I should stand...
Upon this land...
If I can't be saved...
I'll keep people from being enslaved...
I'll fight on...
From dusk to dawn...
I may fall...
But they'll hear my call...
My allies will arrive...
They will survive...
And I will be by their side...
As they stride...
I lift my sword high...
It will pierce the sky...
I will swing with might...
It'll be my last fight...
I'll make sure I succeed...
I will not recede...
I will do what's right...
It's die or fight...

As strong as electricity...
I'll fight with my last breath...

The night was young and the air in the dining hall was lively. Cadets and ranked officers alike sat along the rows of benches and chattered amongst themselves over the funny mishaps of today’s training. And so, nobody gave it much thought when the dark haired captain abruptly stood after finishing his meal and stepped away from his table as he placed his dirty dishes in the bucket for the cadets to wash later. His subordinates merely bid him a goodnight as they watched his short stature exit the hall.
Rivaille walked through the familiar twists and turns of the empty corridors as most of the Legion’s soldiers were gathered around for dinner. His boots halted their movements and the captain was once again brought to the front of his office, its towering oak door was tightly closed just the way he had left it.
His pale fingers reached out to rest on the rusty bronze of the handle and his eyelids fluttered shut as he exhaled. Mentally, he asked himself just what in the hell wa

Working the late shift brought you more pleasure than it ever should have.
The crowd… unsavory.
The noise… unbearable.
The tips… terrible.
The smell… God awful.
And yet, you still chose to work those hours. Any normal person would have lost their mind, but you… well, you found yourself very sane and comfortable. Perhaps it reminded you a bit of home?
Whatever the reason, you were working the shift when you saw him. It had been a long time since you’d seen anyone at the bar during your shift that looked even half-way decent. This man… well he looked better than half-way decent to say the least.
The man hunched over his drink was blonde, his light hazel eyes focused intently on the counter. He wore an old jacket over a dark red shirt, his hand absently tapping as he took another swig of his beer.
After a few moments of internal turmoil you walked over casually,
Accident-Prone - Balthazar / ReaderDate night with Balthazar was always perilous. When he had first broached the topic of having a set date night, you had rolled your eyes. How boring, you thought, how predictable. A few months into your relationship with the angel, and already you were slipping into the doldrums of routine. You hadn't thought he would be this dull. Still, you humored him because you knew it would make him smile - really smile.Accident-Prone - Balthazar / Reader1 year ago in Humor More Like This
You really hadn't been expecting your date night to be set in sixteenth century Denmark, though.
Balthazar had worked his magic on some nobles and he had them thoroughly convinced that you were the Guildenstern's, on a diplomatic mission from Norway. The two of you had the best treatment the country had to offer at the time and for once Balthazar didn't even have to lift a finger to make the night perfect. He had a well deserved rest as the two of you dined under the stars. It was all very romantic.
Until you got dysentery.
He dismissed this as a one time thing. Jus

The feelings you were experiencing when Loki turned you around and pushed his chest against your back with a quick and rude movement were not to be named. You realized you weren't going to dance the sensual tango filled with lust and love. No, this was a macabre version of the famous Latin dance. One you never dared to imagine dancing. But this also meant that you had accepted your fate, because this fling was probably the last dance of your life and with no doubt your ending.
You lifted your head a little bit and turned slowly around while pushing the Trickster away with your hand. Loki looked down at your hand on his chest and started grinning. He slowly eyed your body and when his eyes met yours, he stopped. Without any touch you stepped 2 sensual steps forward and he followed your lead moving backwards, perfectly synchronic with you.

Yes, the circumstances of your current living situation were a bit strange. Considering you lived in an apartment with an archangel, that is. Hadn't everyone lived with an archangel at one point or another, though? It wasn't like Gabriel had asked you to move in with you because he wanted to take your relationship to the next level. In fact, you hadn't even really had a relationship beyond 'Wow, I really admire you as a mythological figure, it would be a honor to stake you, sir'. That bit hadn't gone over well with him the first time you had blurted it out. He had refrained from killing you though, and you greatly appreciated that. Actually, he had basically saved you.

“Mrs. Hudson asked me to take you out, because you have been stressed out lately and after living three months with you, it has been made clear to me that you clearly adore food.”

It let out a guttural croak before hopping off of the lily-pad that it was previous sitting on into the deep green pond.

Alfred strolled down the short pathway leading down from his small farmhouse in Virginia.
It was a relatively new house, recently built by Alfred himself since he has been having to go to meetings in the capitol building more frequently quite a long while now.
This was because the British Empire had only become more hostile.
It was 1807 when the United States sent out the Embargo Act of 1807 to stop trade with Britain.
Now, it was the spring of 1811, and Great Britain was far from cheerful.
Alfred thought about these things as he reached the end of his driveway to pick up the daily post.
Alfred flipped open the newspaper to the large, bold printed headline.
It read "The British Are At Large." No surprise there.
"How despicable" he said out loud.
He continued reading down the article. It was all about the British impressment of American sailors. This still was nothing Alfred hadn't already known.
