So anyway, there was also a freakin awesome hero, named Alfred. He was riding on his horse, going by the castle when he heard someone yell "Help me! I need a hero!" Alfred looked all around and ended up with his eyes set on the balcony, which was waaaay far up high. Like someone cold totally bungee jump off of it. A princess? Is that Alice?

Alfred kept looking at his sleeping companion with so much love and adoration, today was a very special day as it was, Valentines Day, a day where couples spent the whole day just enjoying each others company, and a few other things.
Alfred had been planning this day for quite a while now, he did plan on spending the day with Arthur, but he had a little something else planned as well.
Of course he was nervous, but there was no way he was going to back out of his choice. Alfred's thoughts were interrupted by movement in his arms.
Arthur's groggy eyes slowly opened to see a warm smile on his lover's face. While the smile seemed a bit too cheery this early to him, he still returned a small smile of his own, “Good morning poppet..” he said quietly.
Alfred smiled even more as he l

Your eyes widened in shock. This person looked so much like Feliciano, although there were a few facial features which had distinguished him from Feliciano. The person standing before you had dark brown hair and had olive green eyes. His skin was slightly darker than Feliciano’s. While Feliciano’s curl was at his left side, this man’s strange curl was to his right. You blinked a few times to make sure you weren’t seeing things. Sighing, the man had pushed his hands deeper into his pockets.
“Lovino. I’m that idiot’s brother if you hadn’t guessed it already.” He said, gesturing to Feliciano, who was busy playing with Claire’s hair and complimenting her. She was trying so hard not to smile at his sweet and playful gestures. You couldn’t help but roll your eyes at them. It was too cheesy in your opinion. But it couldn’t be helped, as both of them hadn’t seen each other in a yea

The darkness of death.
The pain of a wound.
That is what a haunt is. Prussia was now one of those haunts, destined to be bound to the land of the living until he fades away. You were an angel, a young girl who died from a deadly disease with no cure. Starcrossed lovers, never to see each other, to touch each other. That is, until now.
I ran to my pool, hoping that no one saw my quick escape from the forbidden section of the library. I clutched the piece of paper with the spell to see my beloved again close to my chest. I cleared an area around myself and read the spell out loud.

Chapter Five: America's Sanity
Battle after battle, fight after fight, skirmish after skirmish.
The suffering, for both sides, it just didn't end.
Alfred charged through the pouring rain, panting and growling against his tired, resisting bones that seemed to be begging him to stop and rest.
However, Alfred couldn't allow it. He had to keep fighting. His brothers may have abandoned him, but he just couldn't abandon himself.
His clothes were drenched with rain water and his hair cascaded down over his face, making it hard for him to see.
Around him, shots were being fired, cannons were blowing up, and men were dropping dead where they stood all across the open field.
Blood stained the entire battlefield. It came from both the red coats and blue coats, flowing together like a running crimson stream.
Alfred approached the nearest British soldier.
Without even a twinge of restraint, he took the back of his musket and bashed it against the other man's head.
The British man gave out a cry of

It was just another meeting.
Just more pointless bickering. Just more time wasted when we could have been doing something productive.
Just another place I'm forced to see England.
I rubbed my eyes and stifled a yawn as I watched Germany trying to get control of the meeting. He shouted and shouted, but no one was listening. There was too much chaos.
It sort of reminded me of my futile attempts at trying to confess to England.
I sighed and looked over at the source of my heartache. The green-eyed nation was currently yelling curses and insults as France tried to sexually harrass him. Typical.
A lump formed in my throat as I watched. I admit, I was a little jealous of France. He professed his love to practically everyone he saw.
I was suddenly jerked from my thoughts by Germany. He had somehow gotten a hold of a bullhorn and was comm

Alfred chuckled as he stood on the windowsill. He quickly jumped on a tree, trying not to be loud. He couldn't wake up anyone; he would be of course punished for disturbing the curfew at the trip. Being rather careful as for him, he climbed down, watching his steps on the branches.
He chuckled to himself. Oh, how he was preparing for that moment? Wait, he wasn't. It was spontaneous, he thought about it the previous day after he heard about certain event that was going to happen. And he was correctly suspecting that no one besides him knew about that. Which was kinda sad.
He took first steps on the grass, smiling widely. He had some important work to do first to get everything as he planned. He had to admit that he was little nervous about the whole thing. What if it won't work? What if he got discovered? What if everything will go well but actually will destroy everything?
Alfred shook those thoughts off, put his glasses on his nose and smirked to himself

He turns away, averting his gaze from the scene of his own doing. Clenching his jaw he strides away only a few steps for that's all he could take before his own body gave in from under him. The demon collapses to the ground, his eyes staring at the ground intently as if it may give him an answer as to why.
His throat tightens with unshed tears as his chest slowly expels all feeling except that of remorse. His hands curl into fists as he crumples into the earth trying to hold back the tears, the truth. No, he will not cry, a single tear shall not pass his eyes for demons do not cry, do not love. Love is that the feeling the boy left him with?

It had been a long and tiring day for England. He'd just finished with a long meeting. He just wanted to sit down and drink some tea to unwind. When he got home he saw boxes out on the front lawn and the driveway. The sandy blonde boy walked out of the house with another box and England ran to him.
"America, what's going on?" the Brit asked.
"I'm leaving. I'm going on my own path now," said the young country.
"You can't possibly mean that. I mean why would you leave? You have everything you want here," the desperation was clear in his voice.
"Not everything," America replied setting the box down.
England couldn't let this happen so he declared war on his little brother in hopes of keeping him. The battle was long and hard but in the end England still lost his brother. He didn't want him to leave but he just wasn't strong enough to keep him. After the battle, England hardly saw his brother.

Alfred hurried back to Rosa's, worried and paying little mind to the sounds of struggles behind him. A block away, he stopped close to cabins puzzled by something on the earth.
"What is that?" He walked forward slowly, keeping an eye on the boxes and bags on the ground, and knelt to the dark little drops he had found. He looked around but didn't see any animals. He knew it recently fell by the scent and continued walking towards Rosa's. More alert after his discovery he looked around cautiously. Stopping two houses down he checked between them again, attention caught by something shining on the ground.
Closer he noticed more, larger drops, glistening by light hitting their edges from the full moon. Alfred reached out a hand and touched the liquid surface. Bringing the hand up under his nose he sniffed lightly, conforming his thoughts. 'Blood. Not animal either. Another victim or...?' Quickly, Alfred walked to the house on his left, knowing the neighb

Arthur's reaction was no different from Tino's.

Nope. Alfred was unusually quiet. When Peter walked up to him, he was, of course, smiling like an idiot and gripping a hamburger. But when Pete
Spades- OneWhen one asks not to be disturbed one believes that others will abide by one's wishes for common courtesy's sake and leave them in peace. Unfortunately, this was not true in Arthur's case. Though he had designated to the entire household- family and servants included- that he required alone time every day to focus on his practices in the art of the Time Mages, it never seemed that he was granted such a simple luxury. Surrounded by every gilded extravagance money could buy and yet one so simple seemed to always be just beyond his grasp.Spades- One4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Speaking. Who is this?" The voice on the other end sounded distracted, and irritated at being disturbed.
"Eh, it's Matthew." There was a blank silence, and Matthew sighed. "Canada? Alfred's brother?" he tried hopefully.
"Oh!" Recognition finally filled Arthur's voice. "Sorry, sorry, the line's not very good. Your voice is rather distorted." The lie was obvious, but Matthew was too used to being forgotten to bother objecting. "So, any particular reason for this call, or is it a social one?"
Matthew glanced again at the limp form sprawled on the floor, and tried to stop his voice from shaking. "I I was wondering if you could come over, eh?" he said softly, twirling the phone cord anxiously between his fingers. "I... I'm staying at Alfred's place while the meeting's happening..."

In one particular dormitory room at the far side of the campus was Canada, or as his fellow nations call him, Matthew Williams, busying himself in the kitchen with pancakes (unusual for dinner, yes, although the boy didn't really care).
Looking up from the batter, he took a short glance at the wall clock.
8 o'clock pm.
'Where is Alfred?' He thought, placing his pancake mixture onto the pan. He knew very well that his brother tended to go home past their curfews at times well, make that all the time but never did it happen to be this late.
As if on cue, the door suddenly flew open, almost making the Canadian spill the batter he was pouring.
Matthew silently groaned. It was just like Alfred to make an entrance like that.
