Centipede (Shino Aburame x Reader)You had been lounging under a tree doing a whole lot of nothing but enjoying the sun and watching the clouds for the better part of an hour. Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, with just the right amount of heat, wind, sun, and shade. But all that lazing about had made you antsy so you hopped up, brushed the dirt from your trousers, and made to trounce on down the path in front of you.Centipede (Shino Aburame x Reader) in General Fiction More Like This

"Of course, Sou."
The little boy calmly walked to his father's side, small hand instantly coming up to clutch at his father's ever-bandaged fingers. He turned a serious expression to the older brunette—an expression Sou had definitely gotten from his daddy—and asked, "Why do you go to the memorial every day?"
Sasuke's eyes widened fractionally at the question. Of course, his son was very sharp. That was a trait both he and Sakura had given to all of their children and he could not be more grateful. But after years of explaining away his absence in the early mornings, that was a question he hadn't expected.
"You wanna know why I go to the memorial huh?" he echoed, a mysterious smile taking root on his pale lips. He looked up from the boy to gaze out the window he was standing just in front of; the window with the perfe

The greeting echoed emptily off the small apartment walls, no one there to hear it but him. Dust covered everything in a fine layer again... Had he really been gone that long? A month didn't feel so far away anymore.
Cerulean eyes wandered aimlessly over the sparse furniture, picking out individual pieces of dust floating in the shafts of light created by the blinds covering his window. Everything was the same as he'd left it, nothing out of place; not that he had expected any less.
The blonde sighed heavily, slouching back against the door he had just entered through. Still the same... Which went for everything. Same village, no troubles. Same drive and still no Sasuke.
His breaths were heavy with remorse and defeat as Naruto gazed emptily out through those broken window eyes. He had failed once more to bring his friend back. It was nothing new, but the wound still wept crimson tears.
Every mission had been such a strain on him lately. It didn't matter how simpl

Truth or Dare: The Pocky Game (Sasuke x Reader)The party had been kicking for a good couple of hours and you were enjoying yourself immensely.

Naruto had come up with the idea of course. It was down time now; no real threats on the horizon, nothing new to speak of, and missions were at a low because of the season. It just so happened to turn out that none of the teams you associated with were doing anything important, and so when the blonde pitched you the idea of having a house party you instantly jumped on the wagon, so to speak.
You’d spent a while helping him set up and inviting the rest of the teams. The only person who hadn’t agreed (either right away or with some coaxing in Shikamaru’s case) had been Sasuke. You would never have admitted it, but that was the one person you’d been hoping would turn up to the pa

Sasuke looked over his head with a smile as he felt strong arms come up over his shoulders from behind. Naruto looked like he had just awoken--circles under his eyes not yet faded, eyes glassy, hair a bit of a mess. But he was smiling the most beautiful smile the man had ever seen.
"Just finishing up some last minute paperwork so we can have the rest of our vacation to ourselves," he replied in a contented hum, accepting the gracious, lazy kiss that was pressed to his lips. His chest hummed while his skin sang pleasantly of the touch.
"Well then hurry up and come back to bed," Naruto languidly returned. "I'm feelin' lazy and I got some things I think I need to give ya." His tone was sultry and sleepy and everything perfect in Sasuke's world.
Before the blonde could slip his arms back off of Sasuke's shoulders, the older man caught his left hand and brought it back to his lips. He gave the blonde a meaningful, upside-down

His hand moved of its own volition, reaching shakily for his lover's face. When it made contact with skin it was already far too cold, fingers not responding the way the once skilled shinobi knew he should have managed. But in the face of something so helpless, he supposed he really didn’t care.
Naruto sobbed hard again, clutching at the Jonin's blood-soaked hand, tears pouring down his face and marring his vision. He didn't have the words to say; didn’t have the strength to save him. He couldn’t do anything but sit there and cry.
“N-no—cough—tears…” Sasuke’s breaths were ragged now, all the sounds filtering and processing slowly through hi

That was the start of things at least. Then they started to slip, even if only bit by tiny bit. It was always something small that they would disagree over. Dishes not being done, whose turn it was to clean the bathroom, staying up or out too late while the other was sleeping. Even missions had their little faults here and there, and though they both knew a mission was a mission, needing to be gone for more than a night would often spark an argument.
Little arguments turned into bigger ones. It always seemed to be over the same stupid things. Dishes wouldn’t get done for a week and then suddenly someone was sniping at the other, remarking how lazy or ungrateful they were

The brunette regarded him with dull eyes, the tears long gone from their depths. He watched silently as the blonde dropped to his knees, hunched over himself as he bawled openly, begging forgiveness where it wasn’t deserved. He didn’t speak, didn’t move; he was too numb to even realize how quickly it had escalated to this, too stricken by the bruise across his cheekbone to care. So what if a simple apology had suddenly burst into a hysterical tirade? He couldn’t bring himself to care or try any longer.
“I didn’t mean to I d-don’t know what happened I—!” The words broke as he sobbed again, tears coming fresh from horrified azure eyes. His entire demeanor was that of a broken man, of someone who had alrea

For you, it was a fantastic opportunity to learn about a village you had always been enamored with. As a Konoha native, you had grown up hearing about the Village Hidden in the Sand. From merchants’ tales, to tales from the foot soldiers stopping in the Leaf after traversing the desert, you had heard a fine amount about the exotic extravagance of the village. It more than piqued your interest to hear about the spice vendors and merchants toting carpets and tapestries. To you, it seemed like a different world.
And now you were going to be able to witness a piece of that world! Festivities were scheduled to start before noon; so you readied yourself rather quickly, tossing on a simple clothing s

"Fool! I'm a bloody fool!" she yelled, stomping over to her bed and throwing herself on it, burying her face under her pillow. There she sobed for a good twenty minutes, unable to help herself.
She hadn't ment to be so rude. She was jsut fed up with Alek tryign to pry things out of her. She couldn't tell him her secret, even though it was tearing her up inside to keep it from him. It was only fair that he knew, seeing as he had told her jsut abotu everything. But if he knew she wasn't a boy....she was sure he'd flip over the moon and never speak to her again.
When she'd finally had her fill of girly nonsense, she changed into her work clothes and ran up onto the ships topside, pushing every single thought of the prince ot hte back of her he
Chapter 10 "Monotony"The port was bustling, people of all ages were filling the walkways, there was barely room to breathe. Alek grasped his satches tight to his chest, ushering Deryn towards one of the farthest docks. Children ran underfoot, nearly sending him to the ground twice. But he didn't stop to complain, if they didn't hurry they would miss their boat.Chapter 10 "Monotony" in Short Stories More Like This
At long last they made it, just as passengers were boarding. It was a large vessel, probably larger than the Leviathan, length-wise. They hurried up the ramps, handed their tickets over, and boarded.
Alek and Deryn contained themselves to their cabin for most of the trip, not wanting to get noticed in case someone had a keen eye. The trip was scheduled to be three weeks, so they had plenty of time to plan their next move.
"I can't wait to get off this barking ship" Deryn complained, only three days in. "The water is not the most entertaining way to travel. At least on the Leviathan I had things to do besides sit on my bum in a room all da

She swore she just heard a gun shot. The sound was unmistakeable. Deryn slowly opened the door and peered both ways. The hall was deathly silent and dark. Her feet made little sound as she padded shoeless down the hall and in the direction she thought she'd heard them go an hour ago.
Deryn encountered no one as she glided along, keeping ot the shadows. Blisters, this place is confusing, she thought ot herself as she rounded a corner. It seemed there was no end to the twisting corridors. Portraits stared down at her, as if tracking her every move. She shuddered. The sooner they were out of this place the better.
But what would happen after this? The Leviathan was dead, she had no money to return home. She was stranded somewhere far from home with the archduke of Austria-Hungary.

After a few failed attempts, Alek gave up on counting sheep, and counted the stars instead. He hadn't been in Austria in so long, and now that he was back, he felt a strange kind of peace. He was home.
The sky was outrageously beautiful, the stars glittering against their black backdrop. There was a faint glow on the horizion from the city, but it didn't disrupt the gorgeous view. He played with Deryn's hair, watching her sleep. She looked so peaceful. His heart leapt when he touched her skin, her face completely blocking out any pretty night sky. She was beautiful, her features strong and sharp. He chuckled. Her name fit her so well.
He eventually was able to rest, his eyes
Chapter 13 "Old Friends"Alek slept like a baby, the comfort of his matress enveloping him in the best sleep he had gotten in a month. He didn't even dream, just slept peacefully. Deryn was huddled in his arms all night, most likely fearing Volger would walk in at any moment.Chapter 13 "Old Friends" in Short Stories More Like This
He got a long rest, and awoke at the first signs of life in the castle. Alek heard a few servants walking around the hallways, most likely geting ready to make breakfast. He nudged Deryn awake and they got up quickly.
"How'd you sleep, love?" Alek asked Deryn, wrapping his arms around her waist. She leaned into him, holding his hands in hers. Her soft touch sent a shock through his body.
She shrugged. "Alright, I suppose. Scared the clart right out of me, sleeping here with Volger so near. But a proper bed was lovely. I can't believe this was your home all your life. Barking princes." Alek laughed at her, kissing her ear.
He untangled himself form her and went over to the door, pressing his ear against it. He heard nothing so he unlocked

"What is the meaning of this, Volger?" Alek spat, staring loathingly at Volger. The man smiled, his arms crossing over his chest. "Where are we?"
"Why, your in Austria, my boy. Home, at last. Couldn't have gotten here either without the help of our German friends."
Alek felt his face grow red. He had been right all those months ago on then night his parents died. Volger had been planning to hand him over all along. "So, instead of giving up sooner, you hand me over now? I should have known I couldn't trust you."
Volger chuckled. "Believe me, boy, this is not what you think. Although I do like seeing you in this disgusting cell. It is quite amusing."
Alek's hands were shaking with rage. "You betrayed my father! You lowly treasonous bastard!" with that he lunged foward, knocking Volger upside the head with his cuff.

The boys voice cut right through his, a smile on his face. "Tell me one thing right now, Alek" he looked Alek square in the eye, and he gulped, gripping hte fabricated leather that bound him into the seat, his knuckles white. "Do you trust me?"
Of course he trusted Dylan. He had kept Alek's secrets since they met. But this was not a matter of trust, it was a matter of life or death, or so it felt to Alek.
"Yes. I trust you." he told Dylan earnestly.
"Then listen to me when I say you'll be fine." he patted the yellow object in Alek's hand. "Just release this semaphore flag if something goes wrong, or if you get the clart scared out of you." Dylan smirked. "I'll be down here watching and I'll haul you down in a squick."
And with that Alek was climbing, no, flying. The small seat he was strapped to swung sickeningly as the godless creature Dylan called a Huxley rose into the air. Alek barely dared to watch as Dylan and the top of the Leviathan

His eyes slowly got used to the murky darkness and he noticed the ceiling above him was made of crude stone. Water was dripping from it and onto the floor beneath him, which he guessed was stone as well, judging by the craggy surface under his body. He wanted to sit up but his arms were so heavy he couldn't even budge them.
Where am I?, Alek thought to himself, his thoughts still thick. It felt like his head was floating in water, bobbing around like a piece of driftwood. He honestly did not know where he could possibly be. The last thing he remembered was being on board the Leviathan talking to, to....

Malone was writing furiously into his notepad, hardly looking up at Alek. When he finally believed that it was indeed Alek, the 'dead' prince of Austria, he had been estatic.
"Yes, I'm leaving tomorrow evening, and I'm not sure when I will arrive. So if you could wait....about a month to publish your article, that would be wonderful. Don't want them waiting at the docks for me. That would make for a most tragic end to your story, wouldn't it?"
Malone nodded, still writing. He finally looked up at Alek. "I can do that, with the promise that I will get to follow up with you."
Alek agreed. "Thats fair."
Malone smiled. "I have a feeling this story is never going to be over."

"Yes, actaully, I think you'll find it amusing." he handed her the news, crossing his arms and watching her as she read the front page.
Her face went from curiosity to astonishment. "Blisters, Alek, your a genious! How did you know?" she looked up at him, amazed.
Alek chuckled. "I know Volger about as well as I know myself. The wildcount gets what he wants. He wasn't going to let a little thing like my 'death' stop him from finishing the wishes of my father. Volger is a loyal man, I suspected he might go this far."

Modern day Deryn- part 1Deryn couldn't take it anymore! Her ma was driving her up a wall, and if one more thing ma said, she's out of the house. She sat in her room, wanting to desperately fly, but no! Her ma wouldn't even let her get on a barking plane, because she's so afraid of the plane burning up, just like Da's. Da, Every time when Deryn thinks of him, tears sprint towards her eyes, and nothing holds them back, "why did it have to happen to you, Da? Why?" She whispered. She laid down oh her flat bed, letting the tears spill; she needed to get away from this house! And she can't look back. The thoughts of the burning balloon filled her mind. No. She can't let this nightmare take over her again! Not now, not barking ever. Deryn sat up, wondering what to do, an idea popped in her head. She went into her closet and looked at the clothes she can wear. Should she go for the blue hoodie with the checker white, red and black short skirt, with leggings with her black boots or the blue hoodie with her skinny jeanModern day Deryn- part 1 in Fan Fiction More Like This

the fencing way
Deryn watched Alek fence with Volger. All she could just stare at his glistening emerald eyes. She sighed. She marched over.
" Alek there's something i need to tell you." She spat out
" Not now Dylan! i'm trying to practice!"
Volger watched her, like a fabricated hawk watching her every move.
She huffed. Deryn grabbed Alek by his fencing armor, and looked at his eyes
" What is it Dylan? you pulled me out to do- mphm!!!"
Deryn didn't let the archduke finished, and kissed him hard on the lips.
Volger was watching her. Shocked.
Alek struggled, then started to close his wonderful eyes, and enjoyed the kiss.
Finally..she thought. No more secrets.
" ALEK! BEHIND YOU!"
Alek spinned on his heels, seeing a bullet heading for his chest.
But it didn't.
" DYLAN!!!" ALEK screamed
Dylan fell to the ground. His own friend had taken his own life.
Alek turned the Middy over.
Alek gasped. There was no more Dylan Sharp anymore.
Now there, was a girl

What in barking hell is happening to Alek? Deryn thought.
2 minutes and 30 seconds later
As soon as the tired midshipman came to halt at the door, Deryn pounded as hard as she can.
" Dr. Barlow? Dr. Barlow! Please open up it's me Dylan!"
no response all she could hear was moaning.
Was the doctor in trouble too?
" Please Dr. Barlow! open the damn door!!" Deryn yelled
Deryn had no choice to kick down the door.
She had to put all her might she could kick down the door.
BAM! went the door and she went inside.
Deryn gasped at the scene she saw, and her eyes were big as saucer plates.
"OH! um...Mr. Sharp! what are you doing here?" the confused doctor asked.
There was Dr. Barlow and Count Volger were making out! Volger had his shirt out of his pants and his muscles hanging out. Dr. Barlow's hair was out of the bowler hat and was replaced with messy brown curly hair going which way possible! Deryn felt her stomach turn upside do

Deryn entered her private chambers, exhausted from three days of nonstop work on the Leviathan. Finally she was able to take a few minutes to change out of her sweaty uniform and change into something more appropriate. She sighed, remembering that they'd arrive to Japan the very next day and Alek would vanish from the Leviathan forever. He would probably vanish into the wilderness and somehow find a way back to the main land and hideout until this barking daft war would be over. Deryn shook her head, clearing her thoughts of Alek from her mind, reminding herself that he was a barking prince -that's archduke you dummkopf!- and she was a lowly mooneye-eyed lassie that served as an airman. She couldn't fall for him; she couldn't, unless she wanted him to run a mile. Anyway once Alek was gone, so would her feelings for him, too. Deryn put on a determined look on her face and chased away all thoughts of Alek that entered her mind.

"DERYN!" Alek shouted as he shook her limp body trying to wake her up, get her to talk, or do something.
Alek's arm landed on a small box as he continued to shake Deryn (as if that would help) and knocked it over. The clattering helped Alek see through his panic and look at what box he had knocked over.
"God's wounds," Alek breathed as he saw that this box was Deryn's smelling salts, "This could barking work!"
He opened the box and waved it under her nose trying to spread the sharp smell to wake Deryn up. Finally Deryn opened her eyes and Alek sighed with relief, "Thank providence that you're alright, Deryn! I thought you had just died! Are you all right?"
"Oooooohhhh... Alright isn't the right word here, I think," Deryn managed to get out before hurling right on the bed.
"Schiesse! What's the matter Deryn?" Shouted Alek and began to spout off all kinds of Austrian swears.
Deryn looked up at Alek and whispered breathing hard, "Get... get... Dr... Barl...Barl...

Deryn's first thoughts were, "Wh-where a-am I?" then, "W-what's going on?" and finally, "Am I KISSING ALEK?!?!" Her eyes snapped open and she pulled away from Alek shocked at what she did now. Her head pounded, but she managed to get out, "Wh-what were you DOING Alek?"
Alek leaned back looking shocked, as he saw Deryn wince from her pounding ribs and head, but managed to compose himself and reply, "Y-you're alive, Dyl- erm, what's your true name?"
Deryn stared at him, unable to process that Alek knew who she really was, answering, "Deryn, and how did you know that I'm a barking girl?!"
Alek blushed, whispering, "Y-you were hurt so I-"
Alek broke off blushing furiously as Deryn understood what had happened and replied in her girl voice, "So you know, and hate me, at this point that you've seen what I've kept from you all these months," Deryn sighed and hung her head, "I-I...

The Claxton bell was ringing its head off but there was nobody in the corridor, as Alek jogged over to a gut hatch and peeked out to see what the commotion was all about. The whine of engines pierced the air and Alek understood that they were ambushed by aeroplanes.
"Bumsen!" Alek cried, and listened closer. There was something missing from the usual sounds the Leviathan made but Alek couldn't understand what... Then it hit him.
"Dummkopf!" yelled Alek and began to climb up toward the engines, "Of course they would aim for the engines you idiot, the engines are the airships most important way of traveling! The clankers should know that by now from the sultan in the Ottoman empire!" Alek climbed faster reaching the walker cabin, and peeked in to see what the problem was. What met his eyes was beyond what he imagined; Klopp was unconscious and Mr. Hirst was tending to him.
"Mr. Hirst, what happened here?" Alek yelled.

Deryn sprinted down the corridor, grabbing the gut hatch and peeked out about what the commotion was. What she saw totally blew her mind.
"Barking spiders," Deryn mumbled in awe as she saw a clanker machine swoop overhead and shoot a row of bullets into the whale's spine. Deryn dropped down the hatch as the aeroplane zoomed overhead almost beheading her.
"Barking persistent are they! Once on the glacier and now on the border of China? What are the clankers now; watchdogs?" Deryn exclaimed, checking first to see if the aeroplane was gone, then pulling herself out onto the spine. She whistled with the scene that met her eyes; there were huge masses of dead bodies strewn all over the Leviathan, both beastie and human. The sight brought tears to Deryn's eyes to see the airship so helpless with the clankers swooping again and again destroying more and more of it each time.
"Bum-rags!" Deryn shouted at them tears spring

Now let it all out in one
Let your grip on reality slip.
Let your innocence die.
Let your mind wander.
Take hold of my hand
before I run away,
for as you can see,
I'm late for a very important date.
Ignore the whispering behind the curtains,
forget the past full of lies.
Here you will learn that right is right and wrong is left.
Do avoid the left,
that's where the wicked live,
lost in a world that cannot be saved,
lost in a world where they once knew you.
The roses may sing lovely tunes,
and the daisy's may give incredibly well thought through speeches,
but don't waste your time listening to them,
they only wish to steal your beautiful eyes,
and your innocent lives.
before your chance is gone,
jump through the mirror
and crash down
into a world
that has been waiting for you,
since the very beginning of time.

Like something was hidden deep within each word
that managed to escape his trembling lips.
A pain so deep,
earth shatteringly strong,
like at any moment his body would give out,
and he'd fall to the ground.
The weight of the world
finally weighing him down,
drowning him in an ocean of misery.
His voice shook
But he stood strong,
if anything a bit worn at the edges,
but he refused to fall.
With each pained word,
his strength disintegrated,
and the real pain began to surface
in his heartbroken eyes.
Life was a struggle,
life had drug him around,
beat him down,
And all he had left now,
were his trembling,

How I used to long for even the tiniest glimpse.
Only to be thrown away and discarded so effortlessly.
I came running back each time.
No matter how severe the wounds,

How low do you have to be,

Leviathan: A picture for a prince
Just a small intro. Deryn/Dylan Sharp and Prince Alecksander Ferdinand are on board the leviathan heading towards the Ottoman Empire. A surprise request from Aleck gets Deryn/ Dylan to realize her true feelings for him. Rated pg-13 for later chapters.
(I might go to four chapters at most, also keep in mind there is a change of point of view and that the book just came out in October. This fanfic is a test run for future fanfics later on)
Alek walked along the great air ship that was the Leviathan. His now rubber soles clanked against the metal walkways of the ships spine. The whole crew seemed to be a little on edge whenever he and his men walked about with their "highly flammable" shoes. Until finally to put them all at ease they borrowed some rubber shoes that were necessary if you were to walk along the great ship.
After receiving the shoes Alek decided to head to the backside of the creature or "dorsal" as he learned later it

Deryn pulled out the materials she would need for the sketch. She decided to go with the extra dark sketch pencil and her unmarked eraser. She needed the sketch to come out as close to perfect as possible.
Deryn then pushed herself closer to Alek; she left one leg extended forward while the other held the sketch pad in place on her lap. Deryn then placed the pencil between her teeth and slowly examined the new project before her.

My bad you guys, I realized that Alek came to terms to quickly with what happened in the last chapter. So I had to make him suffer. Plus I realized when it comes to sexual stuff, its much more interesting to hear it from the girls P.O.V.
Perhaps it was the fact that a girl was kissing him, or the fact that her shirt was partially undone, or the fact that the heat in the room has completely robbed him of his common sense, but Alek didn't immediately pull away.
Did he expect to find out his best friend was really a girl? No. Did he expect to be kissed abruptly by her? Also no.
And yet that's what was happening at the moment.
Alek's entire thought process and emotions had completely shifted when he found out about Dylan no wait Deryn's little secret. Above all things he was hurt, confused, and somewhat angry at her. It was her fault he was experiencing this completely knew feeling, and yet the new feeling for him was of course extremely awkward. It took all of his skills as

A series of images ran through Deryn's head.
Memories of her past and current life seem to pass by in a blur. She saw yellow flames surround her father, her mother's voice echoing along the halls of her old home, her brother announcing that he was joining the navy. Slowly the images seem to slow down, she saw herself standing in a line of men with her head held higher than the rest, and she saw snow and ice surround the bodies of brave soldiers who died defending the Leviathan. And then from the shadows she saw a figure approach.
He crouched low and surrounded her, Deryn could feel herself slowly suffocating in its embrace, and she felt the figure all around her even though she could see nothing. Then a voice broke through;
