The headset slips

-Drarry- Alcoholic Events'There's a stranger in my bed.' That was the first thought that registered in my poor, abused head. I groaned, not wanting to move after the alcohol I consumed. I had never planned to drink that much. I breathed in, and inhaled a really pleasant smell, which staved off my nausea. Whoever I bedded, that person smelled wonderful, and I soon drifted off to sleep, instead of dealing with the harsh light of the day.-Drarry- Alcoholic Events3 years ago in Romance More Like This
I rolled over, expecting the body next to me. Instead I found the other half of my bed, which was cold. A smell penetrated my nose, and I registered it as eggs and bacon. I hurried to the bathroom, and threw up unceremoniously.
A hand lightly touched my neck, and pulled back my blond hair. I recognised the scent immediately.
"Not so hungry, then?" the voice asked. Male, then, I decided. I couldn't answer, because the next spasm shook my body, and I was leaning over the toilet again. Why was the person still here, if it was only a one-night stand? God, if only I could reme

Sure it's just one letter change from the amazing L2 Biotic Specter God Kaidan Alenko.... But still! How hard is it to actually check your spelling! I can't remember how many times I've received some top secret information "for your eyes only" or something such by accident because some bureaucratic idiot could not check what the hell he was writing on the Receiver part of the message! I don't need to be interrogated by some hotshot agents AGAIN because I received something I was not supposed to. Because of a spelling error! It gets real old .. real fast.

Bethany groans, manners abandoned, as Hawke's passionate laughter drifts through locked doors.
Varric idly pokes the fire. "Something on your mind, Sunshine?"
"Them." She states.
He smirks, mental image literal. "So much for virginal purity."
"I'll have you know," she gasps, "I've never been kissed."
"We can fix that." He takes her hand and kisses it.
"Not like that--"
Effortlessly, his lips gently stall hers. Her eyes widen, rebuttal silenced.
Maybe I Will, Maybe I Won't : DrarryI finally escape from the crushing crowds for sweaty dancers long enough to stumble into the entrance hall, empty except for a single figure on the grand staircase. I start over not realising who it is and I'm only enlightened when he tilts his head up. Pale blonde hair appearing honey coloured in the flickering torchlight, no wonder I didn't recognise him. His grey eyes find mine, devoid of their usual animosity, enticing me closer.Maybe I Will, Maybe I Won't : Drarry3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Harry." I'm not sure which startles me more, his soft tone or the use of my first name. I collapse on the stair next to him, not caring if it's a trick, too tired of avoiding dancing.
"...Draco." I look closer and spot dark bags under his eyes; worry, stress, lack of sleep? "You okay?" He shrugs slightly, dress robes shimmering in the orangey glow.
"Just tired I suppose..." he yawns and leans against my shoulder. I repress the urge to shove him away. "You smell good." His nose suddenly nuzzles into my neck.

She slowly backed away from him and he sighed.
"EDI watch my baby while i'm gone."
"Of course, Jeff. But it is against Alli-"
"Yeah, yeah. I've already broken enough regs thanks to Shepard. One more couldn't hurt."
He turned back to Shepard, who had gained some footage while slowly walking back. He walked after her.

A vulnerable state.
A strong desire.
A physical embrace.
A goodnight kiss.
All these things
we often use
to describe love.
But Love is something
that is much too powerful
to be able to describe
justly and accurately.
You won't know
what Love truly is
until you've felt it.
It is an experience,
or many experiences,
that is impossible
to truly put into words.

The Proposal StoryHarry trudged his way through the snow and towards the pub. Oddly enough he didn't even feel the cold, or the snow hitting his face. He just felt so warm inside. He entered the small muggle pub called Willow Street Pub and saw his friends sitting in a corner drinking and laughing. Ron must have noticed him because he waved, signaling to Harry to join them. Ron, Neville and Dean sat around a small wooden table, each a beer in their hand. They were all looking at him eagerly in the silence, "I'm engaged!" Harry announced and his friends broke out in applause. "Well done mate! If only Neville here could do the same." Ron shot Neville a crooked smile. They had all been joking for months now that it was due time he proposed to Luna. Neville blushed and leaned in, everyone else leaned in as well.

And in order to understand how to win me over, you must learn to want me. And believe it or not...that's a lot harder than you'd think it would be." They've been over this thousands of times, and still Draco could not manage to get it through that thick skull of Potter's that he wasn't what the other man needed.

How can you think so clearly now
when war is your desire?
You can blame another man
declare the fight is on
But to suspect a helpless one-
a sin that weighs a ton
Speak nasty words, call others jinx
with hurtful tone and stare
And try to show a name that stinks
accuse with one straight glare
Spit out a word and then a joke
that's stabbing to the heart
Set up the flame until you choke
til bloodshed craves to start
You can doubt any person,

Wolfs sing to all my fears,
The moon wanders across my life,
Slaughtering my love with a single knife,
Isolated and misunderstood,
For my pain is stronger than the darkness it brings,
Sitting here crying, weeping,
I loved once,
But no more,
Watching around me,
Staring through blood and gore,
Becoming what I dispise,
Becoming a miserable life,
For my love has left,
My kindness creeps,
It all disappears as i weep,
My only love is the darkness itself,
I love the dark,
But I am forever forbidden to hell.

Every time you eat it feels like a huge detour and you spend your time waiting to be empty again, so you can get back on the road. Speeding wildly until you have to detour again .

I sat up and looked around the dark room. 3:43 am. Sleep was escaping my fragile grasp while time blew away like sand in the wind. I rested my head on my knees and stared at the empty spot next to me in the bed. I wondered silently in the darkest depths of my heart when he was going to come home. I had never been so lonely in all my life.
I suppose I should have expected this. The four boys had another show tonight, one that, apparently, ran late. The four boys were playing at a new place, a place with a lot of hormonal teenaged girls. I sighed and buried my face in the covers.
"You're being stupid." I mumbled. "It's that jealousy thing; just stop thinking about it." I heard the keyhole turn and the front door open. I leapt out of bed and to the main room where the four boys were piling in tiredly. I smiled at them, my nerves obviously shining through my skin deep cheeriness. "Hello boys!" I said. They all waved half heartedly. I scurried into the kitchen a

When Annie Came to StayThere was a ghost in the house. Billy just knew it. His mother and father had told him not to be so silly and get into bed, and now of course he couldnt sleep. There was a chilly feeling in his room that was making him want to go to the toilet, but he felt sure that if he got out of bed something horrible would happen to him. If you asked him why he thought that, he wouldnt have been able to give you a very convincing answer, unless you yourself have had a feeling of something good or bad being about to happen for no particular reason.

And a kiss, pressed behind his ear, then three little whispered words carried Shepard out of his shuttle, into the living hell Earth had become.

I refused, of course, insisting that they were my guests. I talked to my longtime friend on the phone who owned the restaurant and she kindly offered to have one of her employees drive the food down, since I had no car.
