The boy slightly opened one eye to be face to face with what appeared to be another homunculus. This one was pale and long stringy green hair; he wore a tight black shirt that stopped at his chest with a matching black skort, the oroborus symbol was tattooed just below the skort on his right leg.Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+ in General Fiction More Like This

Tracing the soldier's movements to where he had been last, each unaware of the ghastly sight they were about to encounter. The doors were kicked open only to be greeted by a horrid, putrid smell...The smell of rotted flesh and dried blood. Eyes dilated when the men saw the rotted remains of the soldier on the floor.

Roy looked over his shoulder as Riza walked in a few minutes later, hesitant when she saw the blood on his back. "Sit." She said firmly.

Sitting cross-legged on the stone cold cement floor, which was almost identical to the boy's eyes, he took the crumpled picture out of the armband and looked at it for a minute. "Who are you...? Why do you haunt me like this...?" He whispered as he looked down at the picture. He had to be careful, for he knew that if he was caught by Envy he would receive a severe beating. The door behind him was locked, he sat patiently as he waited for someone...A soldier. He waited patiently for the knock that would inadvertently end the man's life.Unattainable Illusions +Ch 2+ in General Fiction More Like This

Roy sighed, walking over to the window by his desk. Al noticed his fingers were trembling. "How...How did that happen...?" Al whimpered, nearly in tears. "How can my...- how can he turn into one of those monsters...Star too..." Roy turned his head, he couldn't help but pity the small boy in his office.

A solemn tone came from a young girl as she looked over the large transmutation circle that was etched in the concrete floor and the remains that were laid in the middle, a few silent tears formed in her eyes as they ran down her cheeks. She opened her eyes slightly as she fell back on her knees and her hands found their way to the floor near the circle, clenching her hands to the point where her knuckles had turned white. The girl was only 16, but after witnessing Edward Elric's death at the hands of the homunculus named Envy the once proud girl had been completely broken; her heart which had been broken in the past this time felt as though it had completely shattered.

Summary: Sam Winchester knew that every word they had said was true. So, he took the beating. Without question. Without thinking. But what he didn't expect was Dean's ultimate reaction - and what that ended up leading up to. Wincest\Weecest\Teencest.
Third Person POV
"Sammy, no. Just don't."
Samuel Winchester swallowed and looked away from his brother, ashamed as he sat in the passengers seat of the '67 Impala. He could feel the humming of the engine underneath him, and right at that moment, it was easier to pay attention to rather than trying to decipher his emotions to come up with something to say to his blood. He knew Dean was mad at him - actually, furious, but the reason why he hadn't told him was solely because he didn't want to worry the teen again. However, he guessed it kind of backfired on him.

It hurts my eyes.
And my heart.
Do you insist on hurting like this?
I don't wish to see you,
In such a way.
Sometimes I wish,

And become my big brother,
But I know,
That with everything,
All at once,
You can feel nothing but,
I want to save you,
To wrap myself around you,
And hold you,
Holding you up,
So you never fall,
I want to kiss you,
And take everything away,

You’re waiting for me to crack.
For me to succumb to Lucifer.

Flinching away from me.
As if I am a vile creation,
An insane man,
I watch you writhe in dread.
It’s getting better, I guess.
Getting a grasp on reality.
Knowing what’s real and what’s not,
But you don’t seem to understand my practicality.

And watch you,
Become afraid of me.

"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
