A year ago, on one night like this, the moon melted in your hands
And the last drop, too stubborn to rub off, glistened on my lips,
After I drank to my heart's desire, and fell asleep in your warmth...
A month ago, on one night like this, the sky was too dark to see
And the last star, too weak to keep my hopes alive, burnt up
After I had cried enough, and drowned in my own turbulent sea...
A week ago, on one night like this, your memory came knocking at the door
And my intuitions, better late than never, remembered the false alarms,
After I refused to answer, and your footsteps were lost in the woods...
Tonight, I am waiting for the echoes...

All of death is death. Life,
too, is like death.
The way it erupts over you
laughing and spinning.
I was confused
so I asked God: What should I do?
Move your body and have emotions. The birds were dancing.
Could you be more specific?
But now God was busy arguing with Moses.
All of life is life. Death,
too, is like life.
The way it erupts over you
laughing and spinning.
Tomorrow is the sound
of a question falling
on a bed of questions.
Today I hold out
your name, God,
in the public square.
Yesterday reason, the slayer
of song, wended its way
into our will.
All of light is linking. Dreams,
too, would see us separated.
The way it erupts over you
laughing and spinning.
All of God is God. Dark,
too, is like God.
The way we usurp it
laughing and spinning.

the terrible crushing song
dropping from the sky
or children's feet
mutely shuffling a lullaby
against cellar walls,
the noise of small animals
cold metal wire
and innocence losing hope
to rough hands
lurching from the dark.
Those sounds could break
a weaker man,
suck strength like blessings
from a stranger's heart;
but he could savor
its last coda -
the bludgeoning whispers
and souring cries
between his ears

At that moment, everything felt like it was currently on pause. Unable to control the tears flowing down your cheeks, you buried your face deeper into your hands, somewhat embarrassed.
Perfect, I'm about to blast him and then I start sobbing in his face..
You could feel his presence near by. You knew he must be confused by your sudden confession and he probably thinks you're even weirder than before. All you really wanted right now was for Pitch to abandon the fight so you could go back home. You didn't want to do this sh-t anymore. Whatever decision you would make, somebody would always get hurt.
At that exact moment of hopelessness, you felt his hand on your shaking shoulder. Refusing to look up, you simply managed to not move under his cool touch.
"Y-You thought I...left you?" His voice was high pitched and shaky, like if he was just moments away from breaking down like you.
Slightly raising your head so he could see a small part of your eyes, you shot him a death glare.

In a matter of minutes you were standing in the middle of a vast snow covered area. No signs of life. Just the wind roaring through your ears and the snowflakes attacking your face. Jack looked around attentively and took your hand, dragging you to God knows where.
"Where in the heck are we?" you questioned him.
He placed his index finger to his lips, obviously he wanted you to stop talking and just watch. Something.
You rolled your eyes, getting impatient from the lack of answers you were demanding. You crossed your arms over your chest and sighed. For a few seconds you stared in front of you. There was nothing but white.
But then you saw what he meant. The white finally ended up by clearing from your view and before you was a majestic wooden building. More like a russian palace.
It was very much larger than your ordinary house, but still way smaller than a city skyscraper. Built with wood, it looked solid and sturdy. Like it could take on any winter snow storm that dared to pass by.

When you could once again start to see light, you felt shivers run down your spine. In front of the Workshop, you were. But this time, not as a friend. But as the enemy.
"Follow me." Pitch hissed as he glided towards the building.
It wasn't nightfall yet, but the sun was projecting its last rays of warmth. You were both standing in a deserted area of snow and the light gave it a shiny look. Some clouds were smoothly rolling in and a few stars dared to show themselves despite the furious battle that you knew was about to come, one way or another.
Following your master close from behind, you massaged the upper left part of your chest, that feeling of emptiness overwhelming you. That part of you you could no longer feel.
Sighing sadly, you asked yourself for the one millionth time, what were you getting yourself into?
The Guardians, they didn't know you had changed sides. Just because Jack had broke your heart. For not showing up. For not telling you.
What would they think?

A cold breeze wrapped you into it's embrace, gently kissing your cheeks with miniature snowflakes flying in every direction. Your eyes were still shut, enjoying the moment. Your mind raced with a million thoughts, until it settled on one. One only. Jack.
As his lips were still pressed onto yours, a faint smile appeared onto your face. You could feel your cheeks burning. You weren't sure if it was from the cold or just the familiar blush.
Jack gently ended the kiss. You backed away, eyes still shut and mouth still smiling. You looked up slowly, expecting his heartwarming grin.
That wasn't his smile. That wasn't his lips. That wasn't his face. That wasn't his eyes.
No. Those were not the blue icy ones you learned to admire. They were ugly. Yellow and ugly. Glowing with hatred. And satisfaction.
The eyes from the dream
You gasped and covered your mouth with your hand. You backed away quickly but tripped over some invisible object. You tumbled on the cold ground. It wasn't snow

Jack entwined his fingers with yours, giving them a little squeeze. He was staring off into the distance, probably already deep in thought. His pants, who were naturally wrecked, looked even more damaged. His blue hoodie was much paler, as if it had been dipped in bleach. Those white bangs of his covered up most of his eyes. Oh those eyes, the ones you learned to stare into oh so many times. He had a blank expression plastered across his features, making him look serious. You gave his hand a slight squeeze and he slowly turned his head to you. He sighed and looked down at his bare feet before looking back into you (e/c) eyes.
"Winter is ending."
A cold hand gently shook your shoulder as you became fully conscious again. You looked around, recognizing your living room. Your heart stopped thumping quickly and you relaxed when Jack smoothed your hair out.
"You have a habit of falling asleep on me, huh?" He joked, poking your cheek.
You stretched and groaned, ignoring his remark.

Was this not the college you wanted? We can always decline and find a better one, yeah?” Her mom put a hand on her left shoulder reassuring her that it was okay.
“No, it's fine really!” [Name] sighed. “Are you sure [Name]? You look like you're about to say something.” Her mom pointed out. She looked up at her mom with a serious look, her eyes glistened with water. “How am I going to tell Jack that I have to leave for four years to study and that the place I'm studying at is far away? How mom? How?” Her voice slightly quivered, making her eyes water up. The salty tears falling on her shirt and knees. Seeing her daughter like that made her heart ache. “Oh, honey. I'm sure he'll understand somehow.” She embraced [Name] tightly in her arms.

"I vill not have you causing any more trouble in my house!" North yelled as he pulled out his two swords and dashed towards Pitch.
The dark man didn't have any time to react before North threw himself at him, pushing both of them out of a nearby window.
Each of the Guardians rushing to a window to see if North was hurt, you just stood there, not too far away from Jack. He wore a hurt expression on his face before lifting his gaze up to you.
"(y/n)... I can't believe you'd-"
"Jack, look out!" Bunny warned his friend. But he was late by a few seconds.
A nightmare had sprung from who-knows-where and had tackled Jack out the same shattered window.
Soon enough, Tooth, Bunny and Sandy scrambled to their feet and hopped outside as well.
Now you were left to stand alone in the immense room. Figuring out it'd be a good idea to actually to something productive, you leaved over the window frame. You were able to catch a glimpse of Pitch and North, in the middle of an intense combat on one of the

You followed North into a large room only lit by the dancing flames of the warm fireplace on the wall opposing the door. Your gaze explored the new place. You were surprised at it's immensity.
The walls were of a dark and relaxing shade of red, covered by multiple paintings. They were unfamiliar, but still very beautiful.
Three big velvet couches were located near the huge fireplace. Two of them surrounded it by the sides while the last one was facing it. They were extremely soft to the touch, the material looked awfully expensive. You took place on the right one, hesitant. But North motioned his hand, as if insisting you to take a seat.
You gave him your warm smile and gently sat down. Jack took a seat next to you, giving you a reassuring toothy smile. But you saw that he was scared. Obviously, that vision of yours has been worrying him for a while.
You looked down, wondering what would become of you. That menace kept bouncing around your head.

Jack Frost carried you bride style while both of you flew away from the others. You giggled silently when you saw your fellow guardians fighting the mild but a bit irritated snow storm that the young guardian made. Staring at him, the winter spirit gave you his playful smile and chuckled.
“I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to them!” you yelled furiously, “And you didn’t give me a warning!” You added.
“Goodbyes?” said Jack with a smirk, “I don’t like goodbyes.” He added.
“Well, well, let’s see. Saying goodbye or leaving without saying a word?” you asked and waited for him to respond and he said, “The second one.” With an evil laugh.
You punched him lightly on the shoulder and after a minute or two, he landed and and stood you up gently. You looked around and noticed that you’re in the middle of nowhere.

That morning you woke up with an extreme headache. You could actually feel your own heartbeat pound your temples like a drum.
Ughh... please make this torture stop!
You inhaled deeply and groggily rubbed the sleep away from your eyes. No doubt you already have dark bags under them. Nonetheless, you propped yourself up before taking a quick glance around your room.
Wait, where am I again?
Oh right. You were back in your room, sleeping peacefully after having a rough night of the so called side effects. You turned your head down to your left side, revealing another body snoring lightly beside you.
You almost jumped, covering your mouth with your both hands. Who was he? What's going on? What the heck is a boy doing in your bed?
The tension in your body left as you recognized Jack. Last night's events slowly creeping back up to your mind. You sighed and placed a hand on your heart, silently chuckling for not remembering he decided to sleep next to you last night when y

"Are you okay back there?"
You lifted your head in order to get a good look of his icy blue orbs. The wind made your hair fly in every direction and dried up your wet cheeks. Turning your head towards a random cloud, you nodded.
Jack nodded too and carried on with his flying. You poked his shoulder gently, wanting to ask him a question.
"Where are we going now?"
"To North's place, of course."
You both landed perfectly in front of the tall and sturdy workshop. Only a little of wind blew through your hair and you could already define a bit of the sun on the horizon. A few rays of light shone from the other side of the planet, while the stars vanished one after the other. The night was coming to and end to be replaced by morning.
You weren't used to saying goodbye to people, so saying goodbye to Bunny seriously made your insides feel like they got crushed. You were going to miss the way he would bicker with Jack and act over protective with you. But you were going to miss

The feeling of pain slowly returning to your chest, you rubbed your eyes to clear out your vision.
Oh, my head...
Your head was pounding and everything seemed blurry for a second there. But as your eyes focused on what lay ahead of you, you finally realized you were in some sort of immense bird cage, dangling from the ceiling. Each and every move you made would make your tiny prison swing from one side to another.
Oh, perfect. Just perfect.
Bringing your knees up to your chest, you rested your back against the bars. There was no point in escaping anyways. Pitch had drained all of your powers. And maybe even a little more than necessary, considering you felt weaker than you normally should.
What will my parents think? It should be day by now. Oh no, what if they think I ran away or something? God, this is all my fault... I should of never trusted that bastard in the first place...

The painful feeling of blood flowing back into your veins woke you up. Rubbing your aching forehead with your right hand, you struggled to prop yourself up with your elbows. Your unsteady vision was blurry but soon enough the colors started to return. Detecting a hint of scarlet red and dark gold, you finally figured out that you were in a room.
Beneath you were soft and delicate silk sheets. Your head was resting on a big fluffy pillow and your body was wrapped up in similar bed covers. It took a few minutes for you to register where you were and what was going on, put you finally calmed your nerves down.
You blinked a few times and patted the free spot next to you, the feeling of cold flesh making contact with your warm skin.

Closing your eyes, you embraced the feeling of the fresh morning breeze smoothly caressing your pink tinted cheeks. The sun was being shy and still in its hiding spot while the moon still glowed with all its might. Little stars here and there, including the famous Venus. You peeked over your love's shoulder, gazing down upon the several silent houses. The night was ending, but you felt like it was just beginning.
Jack decided to spend all of his extra on doing pointless yet amusing loops in the clouds, making sure you didn't fall off.

The sun cast a warm glow over the city as it continued to set, ending the day and beginning a new night. Looking up at the sky, you couldn't help but admire the melting sky. It did make you feel a bit warmer despite the freezing cold around you. But it also made you think of a certain special someone you missed with all your heart.

Knowing that you have to go with it, you stretch out the same hand, your tingling palm upwards and towards the staff.
