Elbrus Academy. What a prestigious name, one would think. A secluded, private academy tucked away in the depths of the nation, meant for only the elite. The general population may never have even heard of it but for those who managed to enter the Academy, it was a matter of prestige and pride. The Academy provided it's students with luxury and comfort par excellence, in return jus expecting their students to be some of the best once they graduate out from it and hopefully continue to fund the school later on (something which was done by all, till date).

This soon became a sport, their way of conversation, and soon enough their friendship was back on track.
3) He was actually the reason why Ray started watching football with such enthusiasm, even though she'll deny it.
4) Ray has a close friendship with Lars's sister, Bel, who was constantly trying to pull the matchmaker on the two of them. She was the one who convinced them to go on their first date.
5) Lars's hair and the amount of hair gel he uses are topics that often fuel Ray's jokes, even though when inquired about it she
An Unusual DateGeety twirled around in the regal looking red robes she was dressed in; complete with a ridiculous looking red head piece, dressed as The Scarlet Witch, a super hero from a comic book.An Unusual Date in Short Stories More Like This
She looked, in her opinion, quite ridiculous.
She tilted her head towards Feliciano, dressed as Doctor Strange.
She tried hard not to laugh, failing miserably, "What exactly were we going to do for our date?"
He laughed back. "We dress up like superheroes, and we put people in trouble for doing things like jay walking and littering!"
"That's going to be hilarious! Wait, when did I agree to it?"
"You let me decide this time, remember, bella?"
"Right, I remember."
"Andiamo, bella!" He took her by the hand and ran off.
"Haven't you been paying attention, bella?"
"That guy just littered! We have to go and talk to her!"
Geetiano Headcannons1. They first met when they were both in the fifth grade, ten years old. Feliciano was the foreign Italian transfer student who knew a good amount of English. Geety was the stereotypical lonely socially awkward girl with no friends, always reading and daydreaming. She didn't have any friends in that school, and when Feliciano came, neither did he. They became each other's first friends.Geetiano Headcannons in Short Stories More Like This
2. Sometimes, when the two were bored, Geety would play either My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic or Doctor Who. Slowly, Feliciano ended up being a Brony and a Whovian.
3. Only two people could call Feliciano an "idiot." Those two people were Lovino and Geety. Geety didn't mean it, of course. It was just a term she'd been using for him since forever. If she didn't use that term with him, he'd made her upset. If she used it with him, she was happy.
4. The two constantly had one disagreement. &
Geetiano: Making UpIt was a thunder storm day, but no rain.Geetiano: Making Up in Short Stories More Like This
It was early in the morning, maybe eight o'clock, and I was sitting alone at the park.
It'd been exactly one week since my argument with Feliciano, and I walked out on him.
Rosie and Arthur, who were now happily married, let me stay at their place until I could find another place to stay, or until Feliciano and I worked things out.
They'd been so kind and helpful; I really appreciated them as friends.
Right now, though, I wanted to be alone so I could be sad without interruption, and tear up without having people see and get my pride killed.
The rain got heavier and heavier, and then it just stopped.
I looked up to see an umbrella, and coincidentally, the last person I wanted to see.
"You'll get sick of you stay here, bella."
Look who was starting to be boring and practical. "Why does it matter to you?"
I turned away, wiping the still streaming tears from my face.
"Because I care about you, and I want you to listen to
AU-Just Another Mission 2I knew I'd probably be content for the entire week. I had my iPod, a few books, the complete set of all the Doctor Who Seasons, from the 2005 series, season 1-6, and clothes. Yes, I'd be okay. Alli had gotten us all to come to the beach. We'd put money together, and we were renting what was supposed to be a really nice villa. I was already in the car with Feli and Lovi, and we'd just stopped in front of Zoe's place. Lovi went to take her, and when Feli and I were waiting, I think I heard Lovino yelling at Zoe.AU-Just Another Mission 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Uh .veh someone at work is being a jerk to me!"
He was talking like he did when he was trying to hide something.
Fast and nervously more than usual.
"You're lying to me, aren't you?"
"N-no, of course not!"
"Then, why are you talking fast like you always do when you're trying to hide something?"
"I-it's nothing, bella! Don't worry your pretty little head about it!"
Naturally, when people are told not to worry, they worry a little bit more.
"Can't you just tell me what's wrong and I won't be irritated anymore?"
"Uh no, bella, I'm not ready "
I felt my anger rising.
Feliciano has been extremely distant for a month.
"What do you mean? If something is going on with some one else, I'd like to know!" "Bella, please,"

Welcome to Elbrus Part 1The entrance ceremony was terribly dull.Welcome to Elbrus Part 1 in Short Stories More Like This
We were all lectured about Elbrus Academy's long history as a school and sanctuary for
thieves of all sorts.
Elbrus had a very exclusive list.
If you had brains and slight hands, you were in.
Or if you had a family notorious for thievery. If you weren't too good a thief, you'd
learn. Eventually. Hopefully.
My case was that my family was notorious for scams.
I was from a family of con artists. My older brother and parents had graduated from
Elbrus; I was a first year in Elbrus, and my younger brother, who was currently eleven
years old, was learning the ways of the scammer.
But that's all beside the point.
If you came to the Academy, you would do great things. Apparently, everyone who came grew
notorious for thievery.
There were three streams.
The Personal stream, the Situational stream, and the newest stream, the Virtual stream.
They all had professional names, but I don't rememb
AU- Prom- Asking HerI was sitting at home, not bored at all.AU- Prom- Asking Her in Short Stories More Like This
What cures my extreme boredom?
The episode was called "The Silent Library," with David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, Season 4.
I was getting slightly emotional at seeing River Song, because I knew from a show called, "The Best of the Doctor," that the first time he'd meet her would be the last time she'd see him.
Oh, the spoilers that show gave me when they'd show it.
I guessed that they'd stopped that show because River Song and the Doctor didn't like spoilers.
The phone rang, just as the episode was at a good part, when they realized that one of the guys had two shadows, (if I explained any more, it'd be a spoiler!) and I cursed a bit, pausing the episode.
Who the hell was calling me when I was watching this amazing show?
Caller ID: Feliciano Vargas.
"I was watching Doctor Who, and it was at an amazingly good part. So good, I almost didn't answer the phone," I slightly complained, answering the phone.

Geetiano: A Daydream AwayFeliciano liked the café he'd been going to for the past two years.Geetiano: A Daydream Away in Short Stories More Like This
It was a cute little book café. Though, his favorite part of the café was probably the waitress, a petite girl with expressive brown eyes and a smile that lit up her entire face, named Geety. She was a (usually) patient girl, whom he'd been friends with for two years.
She could hold her patience, though not for long, but she was honest, and sometimes a little bit blunt, though she'd try and say things in a bit of a nice way, and got bored a little bit easily, and preferred to solve things on her own.
She had dreams of travelling and seeing not only more of the country, but more of the world, and he was completely fascinated and rapidly falling in love with this girl at the café, who he'd become friends with, after about a month of coming to the cute little book café, which was only a temporary thing.
He could clearly imagine the two, sitting on a kitchen floor, him feeding
AU BioGetanjoly is what seems to be at a first meeting, a quiet and shy person.AU Bio in Short Stories More Like This
But with some people, you can tell nothing about them at a first meeting.
Getanjoly happens to be one of those people!
First off, one this that irritates her is the lack of pronunciation skills people seems to have when it comes to her name.
That's why her nickname, Geety (like the gas station, Getty,) exists!
On a first meeting, she seems to be a mature, quiet, well-mannered, refined young girl, and that's how she acts at school, in front of people she doesn't know, and grown ups.
How is she, really?
She's completely insane, (the good sort of insane) loud, a bit mental at times.
She's got self-esteem issues, and it takes her quite a while to open up to people, so that they see the real her.
To strangers, and people she's just being introduced to, she can be extremely quiet, and will stay off to a corner on her own, which may make her seem prideful.
But she's the exact opposit

Even though he seemed to be upset with her, why did that mean she couldn't be nice and help him?
The poor ginger was picked on a bit often, and there was no reason for it!
Storming over to the tree they were under, she yelled, "Leave him alone!" And picked up a stray football.
"No, he's fun to pick on! Alphonse is a cry baby," They laughed, chanting and poking at him.
"If he's so fun to pick on, what would you think about a football on your face?"
"Well, you're being mean to my friend, so I think you should run before your face starts looking like it got hit with a football!" She held it up threateningly, and the girls picking on Alphonse ran away.
"What was that for?"
"You could say thank you, y'know "
"I-I thought you were just another bully!"
"W-what? Of course not, bullies suck! Why would you think I was a bully?"

Roderich, Crysvic's foster father, turned to her with an irritated look. "Yes, you do!" Walking over to Crysvic, he gave her a small smile as though he was never even mad at his daughters constant repeat of the same question. "You'll look beautiful in it." He held up the black, somewhat fadded dress to the brunette's shoulders, a dress that used to belong to his ex wife.
Crysvic never knew why Roderich always wanted her to be such a girly-girl. But than again, it was the day of the Reaping, an important day, some might call it. In other words, two kids from each District would be chosen to enter what the Capitol has called the Hunger Games.
