"Aww man it feels great ta stretch my legs!" Raph commented he began doing squats, to get his blood flowing. Don took a quick inhale of fresh air.
"Woohoo! Can we go swimming! No! Let's go camping! No! Let's make a fire where we can eat marshmallows' and tell spooky stories!" Mikey leaped with excitement Splinter swung his walking stick around Mikey's head.

We raise our voices to her;
The Full Moon smiles.
Running beneath her,
Not once do we go awry
With her guiding help.
Never fails to bring sweet change
From twilight to Night.
Her glee at making
Us, eternal servants, hunt;
She sees everything.
But we cannot stop
Time from passing, its just life.
Light is hesitant--
But only at first.
Before we know it, the sun
Has taken back rule.
His rule of the sky,
Just as Lunas, is never
Lasting, a promise.
A commitment to
All to return, as Night falls;
Eager, we await it.

Kido X Kano One-shot ~I'll be right hereIt was lights out. It was dark out, and rain was pelting the windows outside. She should have been asleep, but she was wide awake. She blamed the rain for waking her, but she knew what really woke her up. That dream, that nightmare she had. Kido began to stare around the small room of the orphanage, turning to her right side to see Seto, sleeping peacefully, curled up into a ball. Looking to her left, she saw Kano, his right arm raised up and the other stretched out, forming what she thought was an “L” figure. Her only two friends, slept soundly, yet she was still awake. Hopefully, they had better dreams than she did.Kido X Kano One-shot ~I'll be right here10 months ago in Romance More Like This
Sighing, she quietly snuck out of her bed; her blue pajamas seemed to glow a little in from the bit of light from the window in the room. She opened the door of the room and walked out. Maybe she could find sensei and tell her she couldn’t sleep. Light glowed from downstairs and she could guess it was from the kitchen.
Kido began descending downstairs un

Suddenly she heard the sound of a door lock clicking.
Kido blinked and walked into the living room, being greeted by the familiar short figure of a boy with a black hood on, his golden locks slightly covering his piercing, yellow eyes. "....Kano, you're home..." she mumbled, her own black eyes scanning his figure to make sure he was in one piece.
'Took him long enough' she thought, letting a soft sigh escape her lips. He gave her a grin and pulled her into an embrace."Yeah, I'm home, Kido..." he murmured into her shoulder. "Don't leave like that again, you idiot," she mumbled back, holding him close.
They stood in that position for a few minutes before Kido got flustered and pulled ba

I never knew the meaning of those words.
How could something so beautiful be so curt?
Why do they say it flies away like a bird?
“Stop this nonsense”.
They never did quite understand or see.
Our love has no consequence
As I was meant for you and you for me.
“Don’t choose with your ego”.
I’m not doing this all for me or for you.
I just love his smile that always does glow,
And between us, things are never blue.
“He will break you”.
Please do not just assume that
What happened to you will happen to me too.
I would know if he was a threat.
“There is no such thing as fate”.
You say it with such conviction,
Are you so quick to hate?

The midmorning sky is flushed and pale. The sun hangs droopily to the sky with fatigue, like it wants to let go and fall down and bounce off the water. Clouds are plastered to the sky in a sticky fashion, like they might peel off and land on the earth like paper. It is cold and warm at the same time, and the wind feels like people’s breaths blowing as hard as they can against your skin.
Thin, sickly trees spring out of the ground in a scattered fashion, holding onto thin leaves that are losing their color. A few leaves are bright orange, some red, some yellow, and some still green or pale green. It is the middle of a summer day, not a hot summer day in July, but a summer day towards the way end of summer, with autumn whispering in.
You sigh at this day, the end of summer, the time at the end. Soon, everything will change, and you will go back to school. When will you see the others again?
You stare at a tree in front of you and focus really hard, so hard your head hurts. You then

Maybe the world wouldn't care.
I couldn't see,
I couldn't comprehend what was in front of me.
My eyes hurt,
My breath is shallow,
My thoughts are stars,
They are far,
I can't make a galaxy,
Without the horrid dreams,
I wanted to break free,
I guess that's just me.
If water was poison,
I'd be a parched soul.

If only I was able to express,
A form of drought capturing me...

Mikey and Donnie were suspended by their wrists from the ceiling looking at the mutant dog, Mikey named Dogpound. Ever since their little argument with Raph and Leo cause the four brothers to split into A team and B team things have not gone very well for either team. More so for the so called B team of Mikey and Donnie.
“We have two of the turtles,” Bradford growled into the phone to his master the Shredder.
“Bring them to me,” the cold voice came from the other end.
“Guess you are going a trip,” Bradford smiled.
“Oh I trip! I love trips!” Mikey smiled.
“Not that kind of trip Mikey,” Donnie said sadly.

Did Not Oppose
By Justin Borer
In the forest on this cold, misty, moonlit night.
Nature is calm and quiet with not a soul in sight.
The silence continues, nothing trying to fight.
Then moonlight shines through the trees.
The light continues to flow like a calm breeze.
Casting shadows upon the lonly leaves.
A branch snaps breaking the somber silence.
Something in the darkness moves showing its defiance.
The forest shifts reluctantly to this act of violence.
Through the shadow the moon helps soothe.
This figure has nothing to prove.
Steathy and strong it continued to move.
The figure emerged from the darkness to cast its own shadow.
Through its grey and black fur the wind does blow.
With its pointed ears every creature it does know.
The creature sat on the ground and looked at the starry sky.
He felt alone, that, no one could deny.
through its bluish-gray eyes it wondered why.
He looked up at the bright full moon.
He let out a howl and held its desperate tune.

Offender didn’t seem to take any notice to Archer’s wailing as his head dipped down to the wounds just below the ribcage. Archer squirmed when he felt something warm and wet snake around his wounds, occasionally letting out grunting sounds in distress as it silvered inside the damage. There was heat of pain against his cold skin. So hot it felt like it was burning.
Archer probably would of just laid down and accepted fate if Offender hadn’t of decided to torture him. Yes, maybe Archer had deserved this… maybe, but he wasn’t going to let this Slender see any submission. Stubborn Archer was, he wasn’t making any difference to the lapping Offender was doing.
His claws raked against the dirt as the burning increased.
What the hell is Offender up to? Was he savouring the taste or making the wounds worse? Archer let out a loud hiss as his maw ripped open and wide, his chest suddenly felt… numb. Just to be sure Archer breathed harder but felt nothing.

Like the brilliance of the sun,
Fleeting like stardust
Blink – it’s gone.
And even still…
The sparkle that is left behind
Never fades easily
From the trenches of the mind.
Like butterfly’s wings
Are fragile, be gentle
Or breakage it brings.
And even still…
The powder left behind,
On your fingertips it does dance,
As it goes unrefined.
Mirrors on the wall,
Like shimmering water,
It can distort the image,
And the ego it does slaughter.
And even still…
The cracks it leaves behind,
Do leave room to be filled
With the kindness of mankind.

Archer just laid there under a stairway motionless, staring into nothingness as the wound on his back continued to sting. Oddly however, it felt wonderfully warm. A feeling he thought no longer existed among Slenders. It was probably the only soothing fact he has right now in his sorry state. It seems the wounds will take more than a single night to heal. And that poses a serious problem.
He cannot leave the city till then, and he is more than desperate to leave.
Without a fully healed body Archer cannot even do the basics of being a Slender. It’s far too risky to leave in broad daylight. It was already midday at this point and lucky for Archer it was winter. It give Slenders more ‘daytime’ of their own. Archer could simply sit around and wait out while his back recovers, but if he REALLY wanted to speed things up… he needs to feed.
A flicker of disgust past over his face at that thought. It was something he could never bare doing to feed off the flesh o

The silence was almost unbearable as Archer remained frozen in the sight of the bigger Slender before him. Archer despite being pretty tall in comparison to a human seemed dwarfed by Offender, this didn’t help him feel any better in the slightest. Offender however, only merely tilted his head. It was pretty menacing for Archer as only moments ago sharp teeth was displayed behind the pale flesh upon his face.
“Nice throw.” A voice so velvety deep crawled through the subway walls. If Archer still maintained his human eyebrow, it would be raised in pure confusion and surprise. He was not angry with Archer? “Although… I’m more surprised how to snuck up on me like that. So where the fuck did you come from?” The question was lased in both hate and curiosity. Archer could feel fear constructing his throat.
“I… had no idea… it was you.” Archer tried to force out. He hadn’t realized he had started to shake. This amused Offe

Archer could feel it in Smiler’s grasp as she almost clung onto him, the sense of fear. It was a fear Archer knew of once himself. But he also knew there was no sense to try and stand up to Offender. Yet Archer had and idea and looked at Smiler, urging her to let go of him. As she reluctantly did Archer moved towards Offender with a somewhat relaxed posture and stopped at a fairly safe conversation distance.
If he can’t fight, he can try reasoning… at least.
“As far as I know about you Offender. Doesn’t she have to take your rose for you to… you know?” He drifted. Offender smirked and teleported right before Archer, causing Archer in instinctively step back a few times.
“Fuck her silly?~ Well she DID touch it, and that’s good enough for me.~” Offender pointed out cheerfully. Archer shot a frown back at Smiler who shrugged innocently with a sheepish look plastered on her face. She knew Archer was annoyed she didn’t

But I can't tell them that. I'm not weak. Yet still I see them as I pass, their "eyes" meeting my "eyes," and though I turn my back to the red gleam, I can tell they know. And though I try to deny even myself, all I can think of is the deception I failed to create, and the wonderful deceit I have lost.

It had been many slow passing hours for the Slender that hid in the darkness of the forgotten office blocks. Tiny specks of luna light leaked through the gaps of the boarded up windows. It was a sign from mother nature it is time to rise. Archer had rested well, empty food packaging scattered around him in compliments to his fine dine.
He rose up, feeling better than ever.
And for the first time in a long time, his white tendrils emerged with grace and splayed out into his signature shape. He was ready to leave and seek his savior. Glancing up at the ceiling, he teleported to the rooftop above him. The moon was beautiful tonight, full and bright like the north star. The rays of it beauty shone on the Slender’s pale complexion, making the white tendrils and face seemingly glow with heavenly energy.
Yet despite Archer’s appearance, he knew he was no angel, but he was no demon either. Just something that is stuck in between worlds trying to survive, it seemed. Glancing
