You don't know what time it is, but your alarm hasn't gone off yet. You've been awake now for a while, just staring at the generic textured ceiling just above you. It was a bit blurry (curse your eyesight).
A very subtle light had crept through your window, past the blinds, and that tells you it must be at least 6:30. The days were still quite short as it was mid January, and the snow had only come once during the holidays, lasting for no more than a week. You were sad to see it go; the white flakes had layered themselves perfectly in your front yard, on the bare tree you could see out your window. You had even repositioned the furniture in your room so you could have the bed beside it because you wanted to watch it fall before you fell asleep each night.
The snow was so pure, and it was refreshing to watch it gently fall. More than once you contained the urge to just run out there in the middle of the night and lay in it.
Sometimes you think you should ha

The night was too short. Far too short. You want to just smack your alarm clock into oblivion. Today was just not going to be a good day, you could feel it in your bones.
Maybe you could sleep in another day? Would that be acceptable? Maybe you could skip the rest of the week and then come in on Monday with a forged note( "John has been very sick the past week, please excuse his absence. Sincerely, Mr. Egbert." ) and no one would know the difference.
No, that was a dumb idea. You couldn't miss school. Why set yourself up for failure when everyone else has taken up that role already? John Egbert, complete high school failure.
Scratch that. If life was a busy highway, you were drunk at the wheel. Destined to crash and burn at some point.
You wipe the metaphor from thought, sitting up in bed with the blanket tightly wrapped around your shoulders. You make a mental note to yourself to go to bed in pajama's from now on; just because it was warm when you we

Lunch wasn't even close to being half way over why was he here oh God you were going to regret this and you were probably going to die and suddenly you felt microscopic under his dim gaze.

Summary: It had been happening your whole life; people just didn't seem to take very well to you. But after a while of the names and the pushing and shoving, they really acted on it. They acted on their hate and it really, really hurt.
It was getting to be just a bit too much.
You've always had a bit of trouble making friends, despite your generosity and blatant modesty. Elementary school was alright, your dad always told you that if you were nice to people, they'd be nice in return, and there were a few kids you had befriended. None of those friendships had lasted very long. Maybe a month at the most. It was like they got bored of you after a while; like an old toy that gets forgotten under your bed after receiving a new one. You could deal with that though, you liked change too.
Middle school, however, that was when

Your name is Dave Strider and you just told your best friend you think he's pretty while fondling a faux diamond ring in your hand that you have been planning to give to him all day.
You're basically fucked if you don't figure this out.
He looks really confused and possibly even a little scared, eyes wide and teeth dug into his lip.
Oh fuck you're getting stage fright. The ring feels like burning metal in your hand.
"Dave you need to tell me what's going on, I don't want this to happen again," he hesitates, breathing shakily. The movie is still playing, illuminating the room. John pulls the blanket tighter around him, a pseudo-shield to protect him from you and your assholish ways.

Sunlight pools in through the dusty window above you. It's warm, almost unseasonably warm for reasons you don't really care to investigate. You'll write it off as John's dad turning up the heater before going to bed. Yeah. That's pretty reasonable. He came back right? At the moment you don't particularly care but it's always nice to know. You breath out your nose steadily. The pillow attempting to support your head is flat. You shift slightly to maybe fluff it up a bit, eyes still shut. As you do that though, your arm brushes up against something soft.
He's facing away from you, snoozing away silently. You sidle up behind him gently and press a kiss to his shoulder (or what should be a shoulder). He doesn't make a move, not from what you can tell in your half-asleep state of awareness, but that's okay, you don't want to wake him up just yet anyways. Sleepy morning cuddle sessions aren't something you're familiar with or anything, but if it came

He was staying at Rose's place again. He usually spent the weekend with her, since his house was far too messy to let a delicate lady like Rose spend the night. And, of course, he couldn't be assed to clean it at all. So Rose's house it was.
Dave had always had trouble sleeping. Even when he was a kid, before the whole Sburb debacle. This might be due to being woken up in the middle of the night by Bro, and his training. It was hard to develop a normal sleeping pattern when you had to always be on your guard, even when you were sleeping. But Dave had a feeling that it couldn't all be blamed on the training.
When he was very young, Dave remembered crawling into bed with Bro on the nights he couldn't sleep. Bro never told him not to, so Dave never thought there was anything wrong with it. As he grew older, Bro was in his bed less and less, but even jus

Everything you see is messed up in some way or another.

The others started playing, Soul and Kidd sitting on the bench.
"So, Kidd, Who you gonna ask to the resonance dance?"

But if you are a meister, you can't pair up with your weapon. It's the same way for the weapons, too. Ms. Marie told the class that she wasn't going to pick for us, that we could pick.

It's been a while hasn't it? Maybe not for you, but for me. It's really quite amazing when you think about it, how much we rely on technology. How much of our lives are dictated by the ease and security that electricity provides us. It's actually moronically ironic. The thing that keeps us close is the thing that rips us apart.

You were beginning to get worried. Sure, you knew he was mad, but you hadn't even seen him. How were you supposed to apologize if he avoided you? Speaking of which..
You were pretty sure he was avoiding you, because no matter how much you went to his Hive- which was as often as you could with your work and school schedule- he never answered. Everything was silent and there was no sound other than the echoing of you knocking.

Standing there was the ever lovely Porrim. Her jade and black polka-dot dress clung as closely to her figure as the 50's style would allow.
