"Yeah sure," a voice called from the other room, "just make sure you actually remember to come home this time. I know how you love to fly around for hours." Karkat could hear John giggles until he was out the door. "Fucking idiot, I swear, why do I love him?" He paused flipping the channel, "Oh yeah, because he's somehow godly perfect."
The troll hadn't been paying attention to the TV but now he wished he had. It was always when he let his guard down that something bad happened. The news update provided Karkat with something he didn't want to think about. There was a line of severe weather heading straight towards them. It was a strong storm development that sprung up out of nowhere, and John was going to be right in the middle of it.

"Oh good, Karkat you're awake."
His eyes caught the faces of Kanaya, Sollux and Terezi. They were all seated in a somewhat circle around the bed Karkat was napping on. "What's going on?"
"We need to discuss something," Terezi started. "It's something I've noticed." Karkat looked around again and noted the lack of humans or John. "Something that is troll to troll."
"And that is?"
"The humanth KK." Sollux answered.

John followed Sollux, watching the troll move through the halls carefully and slowly. He kept a proud stance, even when stumbling over something. He carried a cane, much like Terezi's.

They were terrible dreams, but they were not the dreams of his ancestors. He dreamed of his friend's deaths, over and over again, he saw his remaining friends die as well. But the one that hurt the most, the one that had Karkat sitting up in bed, gasping for air, and nearly clawing his blankets to shreds, was his dream of John. It was a dream where John died, saving Karkat.Still the Same Chapter Four in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

John grabbed Karkat's hands, the troll protested angrily, "John what is this? I swear if you fucking dragged me all the way out here to put moves on me or some shit like that I'll kill you."
The human boy laughed, "Not a homosexual Karkat!"
"You keep saying that, but it doesn't mean I believe you." Karkat turned away to look at their surroundings.
John said very softly under his breath, "sometimes I don't believe me either."
"What was that fuckass?" he turned back to John.
"What was what?" John asked innocently.

"For the love of god Egbert do not touch anything." Karkat walked over to where John was standing. He had found a large device with what looked like a transportation pad on it. "It sort of reminds me of the machines in the ectobiology lab." Karkat remarked. John agreed next to him. They had been sent down into the lower levels of the asteroid to search for usable machines to bring upstairs. They were supposed to be focusing on finding a new alchemiter so they all don't starve to death. "It's not what we're looking for let's go," Karkat turned to leave, tugging John behind him.
"But Karkat we haven't even seen what it can do." John complained while being led away from the strange device. "It sorta looks like it is used to transport things. Maybe it works like the alchimeter? It could just be an old model or something, we should check it out!"

The other troll blasted Karkat with a wide range of feelings from anger to depression before covering his face with his hands. "No I'm not ok Karkat!"
Carefully Karkat moved from the shower to stand behind John, "Would you like to tell me what's wrong?"
"No," John sniffled.
Moving slowly Karkat wrapped his arms around John and pulled him close, "You have to tell me, I can't help unless you tell me what's wrong."
"I don't want you to help!" John spun around, breaking contact, and snarled, "I want these gone!" He flared his wings, "I want this gone!" He clawed at his skin, "and I don't want these!" He pulled down on his horns, "Or this, or this, or any of it!"

They really had no clue what they were looking for. New transport pads were what they were hoping for. Or something that could be used to break the game even further than the scratch did.
"What are we doing?" Karkat mumbled half to himself half to the others.
"We're trying to live Karkat. Any way possible."
He sighed and opened the door to another sealed room, and looked inside. Dust was covering everything and even with their enhanced night vision it was hard to make anything out. Karkat shut the door and moved on. "How much food do we have? How long will it last?"

He didn't mind, for the first time in almost a month he didn't wake up alone. It felt nice to be surrounded by others he could relate to a little bit. His senses were off, compared to the others, the closeness was getting uncomfortable but he would rather be uncomfortable then alone. The troll next to him shifted and pulled John with him.

The boy was curled up in a ball of blankets and limbs, breathing normally, his hair swept messily across his face. Karkat brushed the strands out his eyes carefully; he didn't want to risk waking the boy. Waking a sleeping troll was like asking to get your throat slashed out. It was a defense mechanism that they hadn't been able to outgrow; only matesprits could get away with waking each other. Karkat slid out of the bed carefully and threw on some fresh clothes. He was surprised at how well John slept this night compared to the last. The difference was astounding. He felt horrible for disturbing his sleep, but the day was starting and he needed to be up for it. "John," he called, from across the room.

If it weren’t for his enhanced hearing, he might not even be able to tell anyone else was there. He would never say that he was ungrateful to be living in such a nice house – almost a mansion, really – but he knew even Kagome had to be at least slightly bothered by the change.

You looked over at the man who had bumped into you. He was taller than you, maybe 6’ 1”. He had dark brown hair with a hint of gray on the sides, so you assumed he was a couple of years older than you and you couldn’t help but notice his stunning green eyes. But you realized you were staring.
“No it’s fine” you quickly said and threw in a polite smile. He nodded in return and you went back to looker for… what did those two tell you he was? False Shepard? You were pretty sure that what they had said.

Elsa is a wonderful hostess, just as Anna had always known she could be. The other girl had always been the epitome of perfection, or at least it seemed she used to be. Now Anna could see Elsa was just as normal as the next person, magical talents aside. The redhead is simply unable to fight the grin upon her face as she watches Elsa interact with everyone, freely shaking hands and accepting hugs and the like. She’d always been so afraid to touch others, but here she was, the life of the party. The amazing queen of Arendelle and Anna has never been prouder.
When Anna chuckles to herself, Kristoff gives her a curious look. She grins devilishly as she waves him off, but the blonde can tell by the look in her eyes that she has a secret she simply needs to share. He grins knowingly as Anna looks up to him with wide enthused eyes, barely able to keep herself from hopping excitedly in place.

“Yeah, well no cares what you think,” Dean retorts as he walks from the dressing room door to wildly ruffle your hair.
You pull back with an annoyed whine before quickly moving to try to get the strands back in order. The effort is futile and you look up to Dean with pouted cheeks. The man smirks before snatching up the book, snapping it shut, and placing it back in Sam’s bag.
“Hey!” you exclaim as you try to reach for the bag but Dean is, obviously, taller than you. You’re struck with a stroke of genius and swiftly you hop up to your feet, standing on both the bench and tiptoes in an effort to reacquire the bag full of wondrous pictures.

It was positively wondrous to be home. To be safe and accepted. Elsa was certain she couldn't ask for more, and yet she found herself thinking something was indeed missing. Elsa sighs once more as she runs an uncertain hand through her hair. The kingdom square is lively as everyone skates about on the frozen ground and through the summer heat. Laughter fills the air and Elsa knows for certain that she is happy. Still, watching Anna dance childishly about the ice with Kristoff left the queen with an unknown sensation in her chest.
Wordlessly she ventures from the heart of the kingdom, offering polite smiles and nods as she passed through the seemingly endless throng of people.
She wonders in the forest aimlessly as her minds struggles to put a name to the feeling wrestling in her head and heart. It’s only when she lifts her eyes up from the ground does the queen realize she’s ventured much farther than she’s quite intended. She sighs as she looks back behind herself at

Being a Guardian was hard. So very hard. Especially since being an Guardian meant you were a spirit, and being a spirit meant you were dead. Being dead meant you once lived life as a living organism. A human. Once being a human meant you had feelings and opinions. And Goals. You have big goals. One of which was to be a mother with not one, not two, but three children. One was not enough, two didn't seem right, but three was the perfect number. One thing that shaped this belief was because you were the oldest of three. You loved having two, not one, siblings to look down on and smile at.

I questioned as to what I did wrong,
Did I hurt the boy?
I thought I was doing good,
I tended to him as my own,

And I ran away,
I have broken my promise.
So I run,

So that I may save him,
And maybe I can save my heart.

"Don't know where you come from, and I don't care. Just play the damned song, already."
June 23, 1715.
The air was hot. That was all Edward could think about at the moment as he leaned heavily against the Jackdaw's wheel. They were a day and a half out from Havana, but it was just long enough to make the wait seem an eternity. And why were they not already in Havana, enjoying all the wine and women they could stand?
Because, frankly put, they had hit the doldrums.
Edward abhorred doldrums. He hated them even more than he hated needles. Hell, he hated doldrums almost as much as he hated being hungry, and that was truly saying something. Having grown up in poverty, without shoes and never knowing when his next meal would be, Edward hated feeling hungry more than anything in the world. For the doldrums to come in a close second was a true measure of his distaste.

She had walked away briefly to take a small break and enjoy the first sips of her pint of ale; the other, she had put in front of Connor, who was sitting at a table near her corner. The man in question had not so much as touched the drink. Rhian could not honestly say she was surprised. Of course, when she came back, she found that the A string peg on her violin had slipped, sending the string in question skewing wildly out of tune. Hence, why she was re-tuning.
“The man’s a pig,” she continued,
