We have struggled against the chains of fate
We've lived our lives on the edge of hate.
Oppressed by the taunting of the foolish and blind;
It is time we stood and responded in kind.
No more can we sit here, content with our place;
Else by apathy alone we shall be erased!
Our work is like a candle, a small one at best;
It is quickly snuffed by a single breath...
For too long have we accepted, the concept of equality;
Whilst simply accepting the crumbs of poverty.
Our people go unheeded, as madmen and sloths;
The "cultured" eat like kings, while we are fed with broth...
To create these verses, it takes a lot of time;
Have you ever tried putting your thoughts in rhyme?
Have you dealt with the frustration, of grasping at words?

To put this in a structure, to give poetry a form;
It can take some men from dusk till dawn...
Yet we slave away freely and we beg for a chance;

If I had to call this world a blessing;
I think I'd say 'I find it damn depressing.'
You might think I'm stupid from how I'm dressing,
But this is just the heart I feel like wearing.
I see street corners and absent youth;
Don't pretend you don't ever see the night.
Cause when it turns dark, the maggots start crawling;
Looks like God decided to shut out the light.
I can warm my hands on fire and watch the people go,
They don't know who I am, I just go with the flow.
I see streets that seem empty, clogged to the brink;
But that's the reality deep beneath the sink.
It looks clean on the outside, polished porcelain white,
But inside of the pipes are what you keep out of sight.
Yet they're already straining and distorted with strain;
Soon the flood water comes flowing, wash away with the rain.

This charter has been set-up for the purpose of outlining the rules, core values and purpose of the Black Fedora Pirates crew, as well as setting up its system of governance. It has been officially updated as of the 18th of January 2013 and has been divided into sections represented by the Roman numeral in the section heading.
i. Joining up with the Pirates
While it might seem strange that Pirates should have rules, it is discipline that leads to true freedom. Many of you have all read of my darker past; and certainly those that know something of it might agree that things have to change. I believe that as Captain Chenbeard, I would like to change that. Buried is the past and yawning ahead is the future. For that reason, I will be altering the means by which we sign up as pirates.
I have no doubts that I've made many new friends in my time here and gained many new fans. However, I can only sail with my closest of nakama (companions) to prevent the past

He made a move like fire.
His whispers; a liar,
His heart snaps, like wire!
But what are you thinking of this man as I make him out?
Is it an image or a type that you seem to tout.
was it all his fault with no one else to blame,
Or were there cracks in the story that they both will claim-
Spit that and live that,
Hate when you love that!
You rip that and tear that,
Scream like you know that!
Stop for a moment and just listen to this silent cry,
Time has stopped now for both of us to say goodbye.
Both turning on these clocks, living lies that have stopped;
And when the love turns to ash, let the gloves be dropped...

I have learned of the fear that a man will face

I have learned that even heroes will soil themselves

Yet those whose hearts are in the grip of denial

Because one wrong move could send me barreling off the highway and the freefall feeling that would come next is not something I'm unfamiliar with. It's the same thing that happens every time I think of you. I can't get over how much this place reminds me of you. I can't get over how little room there is between full-fledged fear and being in love.
Sometimes, I think maybe they're the same thing.
I don't know what keeps bringing me back here. But I find myself coming here more and more when I can't sleep. When I can't stop thinking about you. I drive the same familiar routes. Thinking the same familiar thoughts. Going to the same familiar places. I keep retracing the paths we used to take, thinking that if I follow them back far enough, I'll figure out where we went wrong. The absence of you is familiar. Almost comforting.

these feelings should be finiteI'm terrified and I know there's nothing unique about this, but I'm standing here completely out of touch with the rest of the world, realizing for the first time that we all feel things a little bit differently, which is why this doesn't hurt for you at all. I figure the only logical reason for how you could do this as if it means nothing was if it really did mean nothing at all for you. It's easier to hate you this way. It's easier to forget you without the burn of your kiss against my skin. It's easier to stay mad if I don't have to remember the way that it felt.

It's easy to think these things will last forever when you're tangled up together. For me, the strings of my life will always be tangled up in yours. Forever tied to you. No matter hard they attempt to fray. To fall apart. To sever.

A straight line of water against an even straighter line of sky. And that's it. It's everything and it's nothing and for a little while I can pretend I'm somewhere else. Somewhere new. That I can see an entire ocean sprawled out in front of me, instead of the dirty familiar waters of Lake Michigan. I've grown up here and I've grown apart from here, but I'm stuck at the top of the hill on the corner of the street that my sister lives on and I just want to run and run and run and never look back, but that's not all there is.

The rest of the day could only be endured. It wasn't just the Slytherin girls, now. Some of the Ravenclaws had started calling Hermione unpleasant names. A boy from Hufflepuff asked her if it was true that she would have a go with any boy that asked. Hermione did her best to retain her dignity, but after a seventh-year Gryffindor whispered a nasty request in her ear, she retreated to Moaning Myrtle's lavatory to hide her tears. She didn't even mind the presence of the usually irritating ghost. At least Myrtle understood what it was like to be unfairly persecuted.
The school year was almost done. Hermione was sure that people would forget over the summer. She wouldn't be like the girl a couple of years ago who, after rumors about her supposed promiscuity spread like wildfire, transferred to Beauxbatons. Hogwarts was her second home, and she would not let herself be driven from it.

Even before you (literally) fell into my arms, I was having doubts. About my family, about my life, about myself. How can following someone who does nothing but spread pain and misery be the right thing to do? There have been DEs visiting my parents for as long as I can remember, and they aren't people you would ever want to be. The only thing they truly enjoy is seeing others suffer. Real happiness was something I'd only ever seen from the outside. Being cruel, making people fear me, it's what I learned from my parents and the people they are close to. But more and more, it makes me feel sick inside. I've seen there can be more to life, and I want it.

The odd living arrangement worked, somehow. Harry was envious that Draco got to actually sleep in a bed, but it was how it had to be. Draco and Hermione were granted a certain amount of private time so they could be husband and wife, not just roommates. The summer drew towards its end. Hermione was starting to show a bit, and some of her clothes didn't fit well over her hard little baby-bump. Harry and Draco squabbled with each other, while they all fretted over Dumbledore. The elderly wizard was gone on mysterious errands most of the time, and when they did see him, he was very close-mouthed. His face had an uncharacteristic grimness to it that suggested that things were not going as he had planned.
It was a muggy August morning, and Hermione and Katya sat on the fire escape looking at a guidebook on wizarding communities in the United States. They both

Heart a-thumping, Hermione waited not far from the front gates of Hogwarts. She carried a basket filled with apples, cheese, jam, and bread. Brief stolen moments and heartfelt, funny notes... that's all she'd had with Draco so far. Spending hours with him was something completely new. What if he thought she was boring? What if he thought she she wasn't pretty enough? What if--
A pair of arms seized her from behind. She squeaked as they wound around her waist, and lips nuzzled at the nape of her neck. "That had better be you."
"I'm fairly sure it's me. Thought I suppose I could be someone else."
Hermione turned in Draco's arms and met his lips with her own. "Mmm. Tastes like you." Apples. He always tasted of apples. She opened her eyes and screamed.

Even though she knew she should be getting ready for her new job, Hermione sat down to write a reply. She needed time to stop crying, anyway.
Neither of us could have predicted what happened. These are bad times. Bad things are going to happen. We can get through this. Please stop blaming yourself.
I was at the French Ministry yesterday. They gave me a very small flat of my own, a bag of things like clothes and toiletries (and the pen I'm using right now), some food, and a job prospect. I'll miss school and my friends and my parents, and I will most certainly miss you (so much, I can't even put it into words), but I'm safe and fed. Seeing how many refugees there were at the Ministry, and how desperate so many of them were, I realize that I've been very lucky, in a lot of ways. Things are a lot worse in some places. I don't un

Hermione and Harry shed the invisibility cloak once they were inside Umbridge's office. Harry grabbed a handful of Floo powder and tossed it in the fireplace, crying, "Number 12 Grimmauld Place!" He stuck his head into the green flames. Hermione could hear him speaking faintly. It sounded like he was having an argument with someone.
Hermione was very uneasy. Harry had started shouting in the middle of class about Voldemort torturing Sirius in the Ministry's Department of Mysteries. Of course, being Harry Potter, he wanted to go charging off to the rescue. Sometimes she thought he should have a white steed and a shiny suit of armor. Hermione smelled a trick, but Harry

George stepped out of the green flames and into the Malfoy Manor drawing room. He looked around, taking in the enormous table, the family portraits going back centuries, the way the flickering candles in the chandelier cast little rainbows around the room... and the dozens of toys strewn all over the floor. Draco, who'd been sitting on a brocade-covered loveseat in front of the fireplace, stood up as a smile lit his face. George greeted him with an embrace and a kiss that was interrupted by a small body squirming between them.
"Me, too," Scorpius demanded.
"You're awfully bossy for a monkey," George said as he hunkered down to hug the boy. Gertie/Aubriana, who was perched on Scorpius' shoulder as usual, squeaked a happy greeting.

You swung your legs over the side of the bed and tried to expel some of the guilt with a long sigh; it only made you feel restless.
You saw Castiel sitting calmly on the side of the bed, looking down at the floor. He was apparently so deep into his own thoughts that he didn’t notice you wake up.
Hesitantly, you reached out and timidly grabbed the edge of Castiel’s trench coat. He slowly looked at you; he looked calm and confused; his eyes were a bit glossy and red as thought he’d been crying. Your heart sank but you were determined to show none of it on your face. You wanted so badly to lie in the bed all day and cry until your eyes were dry and red but you knew you had to try and push on; that’s what Castiel had taught you.

"Everything'll be okay." He reassures you before walking out of the room with Sam and Dean. For the next few minutes, you hid under your covers, not knowing what to expect. After a few minutes you heard yelling and hissing in your kitchen. You heard a gun go off and a terrible sounding scream; you heard a body hit the floor with a sickening thud.

You slumped down onto your couch, exhausted after driving ten hours straight after a hunt; you'd liberated a town of a couple of changelings. As soon as you got comfortable, you heard a knock at your door. Who could be coming by at this hour of the night? It's not like you had very many friends.
You begrudgingly got up, pulling out the gun that was tucked in the back of your jeans, and walked silently up to your door as the person behind it knocked again, a little more impatiently.
You peered through the little peep hole in the door. You rolled your eyes and tucked the gun back into his original place and opened the door to an exhausted-looking Dean Winchester.
"Hey, (Y/N)," he started in a groggy voice, looking you up and down absently. "Wondering if I could crash here tonight?" he asked.
The sight of him almost stirred the butterflies in your stomach; you'd gone on a few hunts with him and Sam before, and he was definitely one of the more handsome-looking ones.
"Sure." You shrugged,

The painting of a friendly looking man with half-moon spectacles and sparkling blue eyes (and with long grey hair and beard) spoke to them finally. "Good evening, ladies.

In the library, Lily perched herself on a rickety old ladder they'd managed to find in an old store cupboard. Since they weren't allowed to summon the books by magic, they had to search the books manually. She turned an ancient looking book over in her hands and then shut it carefully once she'd determined it to be in acceptable condition. Before she placed it back, she paused in thought as she saw Scorpius searching the book list on the ground floor.

The charms placed on the books to prevent such behaviour had been no match for those roguish students determined to act recklessly with them.

They had had no direct connections with the Dark Arts which had been the downfall of many of the others.
