Until that day
Okay, it was technically night, but we were doing what we usually did when we were in the bedroom together (and thats all the mental image you possibly need), when something on side table vibrated
We both stared at it, surprised as its bright blue glow penetrated the darkness of the night. Beat sighed, and reached for it

Its been a couple days now. Yoyos definitely not like this. I know Yoyo, weve been best friends for almost a year now, And yet, I suddenly dont know him. Its like hes a totally different person. He wont come out of his room anymore. I tried talking to him once, but he just stayed silent the whole time. But I could see wet splotches on his blankets, and I knew that hes been crying
I cant sleep anymore because of this. I spend every night awake just staring at his room, hoping hell become normal. Become his normal cocky, annoying self like he always is. Not this, because it isnt Yoyo. And not seeing him like his normal self, its making me feel off, feel different. I havent even talked to Garam for a couple days, because I dont want him to see me like this.

It was only fair, only fair that I take him our somewhere. I had given him a broken nose and a nasty lump on his head, though the latter was mostly his fault. All I did was kiss him on the forehead, like Corn usually did, and he dropped like a stone
Its like he had a gay crush on me or something
So I took him to 99th Street, it was the best place I could think of. But, Yoyo didnt seem to mind my lack of originality, so I guess it was okay
We mostly just hung around (since he was way too young to go into any of the clubs). But we were kind of bored, so we just talked. I learned Yoyo has probably the worse jokes known to mankind, but I still couldnt help but laugh at some of them
Eventually, we got some sushi from that one place Rhyth loved, but I didnt get any (I really didnt feel like raw fish that night, dont really know why), so I just got some rice. We settled on top of the Benton tower, and duh into our makeshift dinn

Another slob of spit, another shocked reaction, another fit of giggles. And the process started over again.
Beat sighed as he watched Yoyo and Rhyth do this cycle over and over from the railing as the others partied on the rooftop. It was a pretty good party, but there wasnt any hot girls(besides that stupid loud-mouthed Gum), so he wasnt going to try tonight.
He had always wondered why Yoyo and Rhyth managed to become friends. They were complete opposites. Yoyo was obnoxious, a liar, and a troublemaker. Rhyth was more withdrawn, but she smiled all the time, like she thought she could change the world with just one smile
But for some reason, every time he saw them, he felt a longing in his heart, and a touch of jealously. But, he couldnt tell which one it was for. It definitely wasnt Rhyth, hed never do Rhyth. And besides, she already had a healthy relationship with Garam, and no one would dare break that. And it coul

You okay there, Katherine? the young woman asked, leaning against the door way, staring at a younger girl sitting in a chair. The girl was looking out the window at the nearly infinite landscape.
The girl gave no response, just shifting position in the chair as if she had not heard the young woman. She made some kind of barely audible sound as her white dress scraped against the white plastic chair. Finally, she turned back around, eyes blinking curiosly.
Do I not look okay?
You look fine. She smiled, walking up to her and sitting on the bed near the chair. The sheets and blankets jumped a little from the impact, but settled back onto the mattress. But, youve been acting all mopey pretty much the entire day. Something happen? The young woman cocked her head to the sid

It had only been a couple hours since Beat and Yoyo had come back from 99th Street, but it was still enough to worry me. Yoyo had headed straight for his room, and he hadnt come out since. I wouldnt be so worried if I didnt know that Yoyo didnt like to sleep, and he rarely ever went to his room. But him being in there for a couple hours? Something was definitely wrong
I slowly opened the door to his room. I couldnt actually see him, but I could see his figure under the thin blankets on his bed. Was he sick of something?
Yoyo? I walked closer, and he just replied by turning over on the bed, making a shuffling noise as the blankets rubbed against the sheets on the matress
Are you okay? I sat down on the side of the bed and pulled the covers down a little so I could see his face. His face was flushed, and his eyes were a bit cloudy. I put my hand on his forehead to check if he had a fever, but it didn

Shes sleepy, I can tell through her drooped eyes, but she wants to stay up for Yoyo. There was no stopping her, even I knew that, so I let her wait with me
I dont know why, but, I always seemed to worry about Yoyo and Rhyth the most. They were young, yes, but I knew they could take care of themselves, like any other GG. But, still, every time it was one of those two, I couldnt help but worry
Maybe I was worried about how the gang would react if something had happened to one of them. I had seen what had happened when Yoyo had been kidnapped.

The snowfall had grown stronger. It was nighttime, and Narcissa thought she could make out faint lights in the distance. We must be nearing Lexion, she thought. They trudged on through the darkness, their shoes making crunching sounds as they met the light layer of snow. It was a nice, calm night, and though it was snowing, some parts of the sky were clear, and the stars were visible.
After one long hour, the tired group finally reached Lexion. It was a small town right near the icy mountains, and it was constantly buffeted by the cold wind. It was peaceful though, which made Narcissa happy. She needed some feeling of relaxation after everything that happened lately. Seth and Ike quickly reserved some rooms at an inn in the town, while she, Reno, and Ashleigh went to buy more supplies.
Once all the tasks were done, everyone met in the lobby of the inn, ready to discuss the division of the group. Narcissa felt a bit of sadness that they would have to split, but i

Some hours had passed since the earthquake in the ruins. The group ventured on, wary and tired. Narcissa was desperate to find a way out of the ground and back onto the grass. She had lost track of the time. It was mid-day when they entered the ruins, and she was sure that the sun was setting now. The girl did not want to think about what would happen at night, when it would be cold and chilly.
I knew we shouldnt have gone in here! Geyser whined, flattening his ears.
Hey, we learned something from those symbols, right? Reno said, sighing. This trip wasnt entirely useless It was clear that the group was losing hope of finding an exit. The only one who seemed rather bouncy was Chuan, but then again, Chuan was like that most of the time. Devoc was still strolling separately from the others. Alvin had gone to the front of the group, so Narcissa decided to give Devoc some company.

Its so dreary today, he sighed, feeling a drop of rain on his head.
I actually like the rain, Seth said, stretching out his arms.
Maybe you just like being gloomy? Geysette snapped with a pout on her face. Rain never made her feel good. Things just seemed to get really boring, and the flow of time appeared to get slower.

You were still some distance away from me, and I was tired from traveling through rough terrain, so I couldnt catch up with you immediately. But then I lost track of you when the ruins collapsed.

Narcissa woke up to a cheery, sunny day. The fire had already been put out, meaning that someone had got up before her. The only remnants of it were the smoldering ashes. She stood up and stretched her limbs and looked around at the cave. Most of the others were still sleeping. The sunlight, warm and welcoming, made a small patch of light on the cave floor. She walked out into the brightness, shielding her eyes until they adjusted.
Alvin, Marth, and Devoc were sitting by the lake, chatting quietly. Alvin seemed to sense Narcissas presence and turned. The sun turned his hair a lovely spring green color, and his eyes seemed even more radiant in the morning light. A brief smile flashed across his face, then disappeared. Marth waved Narcissa over.

The entrance to the ruins had various pillars around it, ancient and cracked. There was a large, gaping hole leading inside, and it was this hole that the group was standing around.
It looks scary! Geyser whined, ears flattened and tail drooping.
Oh, come on! Geysette snapped. It looks like adventure! Pop sighed and quieted down the two wolves. Alvin offered to go first, so he stepped inside the ruins with Narcissa walking warily by his side. The others followed soon after, though it took some convincing to get Geyser moving. There was a damp, musty smell inside the cavern, and it was a little hard to see. However, there were flickering torches along the way that provided some light. Their footsteps echoed as they hit the stone floor, giving the place an eerie feel to it. Tak tak tak

Thankfully, Ike and Marth had brought some more provisions with them, but they were running out of space to put the things. They were surviving, at least, and that was all that mattered. They had already passed the majority of the dry plains where they found the TowTow, and Narcissa noticed that the land was getting progressively greener.

As soon as they left the area with the ruins, Ness said goodbye to the group and continued on to find Lucas. To Narcissas disappointment, much of the scenery around them was still rather rugged. They traveled on for several more days. Narcissa thought she noticed that the wind was getting chillier and the ground was becoming permafrost. Everyone started to put on warmer clothes. She found herself huddling close to Alvin for warmth, the boy saying nothing but at the same time, not rejecting her closeness.
Right now, there was a bit of a flurry as the wind blew snow from the icy mountains beyond. Narcissa liked the snow, even though it covered the green of the plants that she loved so much, but it was better than seeing dry land the whole time. The group quietly walked past towering stone formations that had eroded with time. Those made Narcissa think back to the carvings in the ruins.

Was there any sign of Pit? She sighed and gazed behind her, looking at what remained of the huge group. Alvin noticed her unease and stepped a little closer to her side.
Nothing overly exciting had happened since they set out from Lexion. Narcissa missed the energy of Geyser and Geysette, though sometimes their childishness was a bit of a bother at times. Chuan, though he had a demon inside of him, had also helped to ease her tension during their travels. She somehow felt less secure without Seth and Ike around, as the two swordsmen were both quite skilled with their weapons. Reno, her dear friend, wasnt around, and there was a small hole in Narcissas heart. And although they just met, Eikos adoration of Ike made her giggle.

As she defensively bit
His eyes fell upon her face
And then to the rock beside

He'd left behind his life if what he'd had for the past year since his graduation could be called a 'life' at all and his friends which were just as scarce as his life was empty for this promise of wealth, of fame and fortune. He kept thinking about the job offer he'd gotten, kept replaying the conversations leading up to the present in his mind, and he found a numbing gap. He had forgotten it already, the pain of what had come before too sharp and the need to escape too great.

The bot didn't know what little miraculous (you're STILL trying to BELIEVE in that? REALLY?) feature it was. The bitchtits hair, those big- what's that human food called? Oh!- chocolate eyes, or that shy little personality that boy's got. Hell, it could even be that chair. He didn't know. All he knew was that ever since he saw the boy for the first time at that fountain-place weeks ago, the automaton wanted to meet him.
He wanted to be all kinds of subtle about it though- the kid looks so fucking timid- and when weeks came and went, a little opportunity reared its miraculous (STOP it) head.

It's hard to explain to others who don't see the mIrAcUlOuS motherfuckin' world the way the bot does. Of course he couldn't up and see them, it was all his heart-gear putting stuff in his think pan. All he knows is that the more he likes someone, the color brightens. Normally, it's like a neutral pink, not bright, not outstanding, just enough to know that Gamzee likes them. The highest he's ever felt was a pale red, which was reserved for the Old Man, followed by a bright pink, which had up and settled itself on Dirk-bro and Karbro. The lowest was a fucking pitch black, which landed on the blonde engineer's motherfucking little brother, and thinking about that makes his gears up and hiss.
Gamzee didn't ever think that anyone could surpass the red for his creator. Of course, he also didn't expect to meet his Tavbro.

At least that's what Gamzee says (go figure). The bot thinks he fell face first in an icy cold pond. It was honestly expected; if you feel like crap emotionally, your body will catch up sooner or later. To Tavros' bitter resentment, it chose sooner. The boy says it might be death coming to take him alongside his dad. The bot also says he's being a bit overdramatic. The boy says shut up and get him some water. The bot complies, but not without a small laugh or two and a kiss on the poor boy's head.
That's how it's been these past couple days. Stuck in bed with only an affectionate steambot and his own construed thoughts to keep him company. He's not complaining, about Gamzee anyway, but Tavros wishes he could get out of bed without the agonizing vertigo and the concentrated paranoia directed at his blankets when he falls back in with a weak grunt.

At first, it was nice. No one bothered him, or even so much as gave him a second glance. He was thoroughly ignored, and Tavros preferred it- it was much different than the harsh treatment he got back in Prospit.

He shouldn't be freaking out. It's just Gamzee. It's just the bot that saved his life little more than a week ago. Tavros took a shaky breath, trying to calm his self down. When the chair hit a stray pebble on the road, Tavros jumped with a small squeak and his thoughts quickly reverted to his impending doom. He was going to die in a horrible, painful death and he wouldn't be found until days later and- why is Gamzee laughing?
"Tavbro? You okay? Didn't mean to up and motherfuckin' scare ya, bro." Tavros heard Gamzee speak up after he slowly raised his head to meet the automaton's. The boy, of course, found a smiling face, with soft glowing indigo eyes, looking down at him. Tavros couldn't tell if that was good or bad.

The room was littered with bot parts, from legs and arms to bolts and wires, and everything in between. He spotted his wheelchair at the end of the couch, dented and grimy.

The rest of the team where split between them, being rattled around and shaken about in the back with all the creates and other supplies. In the one with the assembled sentry gun, Chatter and Kingston where holding the machine upright so it wouldn't have to be reassembled later if it got damaged. Damien thumped on the inner window, "We're getting Fucking close now gents, Get ready to begin the assault."
Kevin, the gravel pit scout, dug through his pack and pulled out two cans of 'BONK! ATOMIC PUNCH' and handed one to Lee then promptly sculling the other one without any hesitation. Lee had never seen it before, looked at the can slightly puzzled, then back at Kevin and her eyes widened. The other teens' eye that where a light dusty blue where now glowing pure neon baby blue.

"Alright gentlemen, does everyone know the rules of the skirmish?" Xermous looked from one team to another. He got a round of nods and mutters in response. Soldier and scout against the rest of the team; It couldn't get any more interesting than that, the spy mused. In his experience the only time a soldier ever worked willingly with a scout in any sort of battle situation was because both classes had no other option for survival than to help each other out. The situation was helped by the fact the scout was a lot older than the soldier, but the Englishmen was a betting man and he went $50 on their teamwork falling apart within the first 20minutes of the round. Von had also sided with him and put on $20 but they were hoping that Damien was wrong in his assumption, as the sniper had seen the two of them go head to head the day before and was betting $600 on the two of them coming out of this without a scratch. Typical Australian, always going for the

Lee tossed and turned. Sleeping in the muggy heat was really uncomfortable, these poor excuses the base called 'beds' where the worst things she'd ever lay on. Another violent tussle and she had tossed herself onto the hard concrete floor.
Groaning, she picked herself up and trundled out of her quarters. Anything was better than being in that stuffy little room, she had decided. She proceeded to walk down towards the mess hall and paused, noticing a light coming from the base's smaller recreation room which consisted of a dilapidated couch, a small black and white television and little much else in the way of real recreation - and headed for that instead.
Chatter was sitting on the couch, reading what looked to be a new engineering manual and Damien was pre-occupied carefully cleaning out his rifle. Either they both had first base watch; of they really couldn't sleep in the utter fug of a night.

2. New arrivals.
The sun glinted off the large shuttle bus that had pulled up around the back of the BLU battlements. The first group of newbies had arrived. They were greeted by the four long-standing members and where lined up to some sort of attention with all their stuff in their hands, around their feet, where ever they had dropped it mostly waiting to be given the full introductory speech. The base dwellers, on the other hand where milling about, checking out the young-bloods, shaking hands and generally trying to make them feel as welcome as possible.
Baz was standing a little distance off slouched against a wall watching them, making

The recruits had now slowly made their way outside into the makeshift training yard. It had tons of little nooks-and-crannies to hide in, plenty of places to plan surprise attacks and above all else, heaps of open space. Standing amongst it was several Bots dressed in Red and smeared and slightly splattered in what appeared to be blue paint.
Yunai grabbed Lee gleefully, excited that they were going to be paintballing the bots for practice, the pyros muffled chirps of excitement where lost on the scout, who even though had spent all her lunch break with the Pyromancer, still could not fathom what on earth they were talking about. Yunai must have figured since Baz could understand every word, Lee could too. She couldn't rely on Baz to translate for her either, since not long after sitting down, an over-excited Kingston wanted to show the other scout just how much he enjoyed the other's company by showing him another part

Awakened by his nightmares.
Hands grasp his head,
He goes to the open window,
Pain, A silent scream.
A forest in the mountains.
It is dark,
Yet he can see......
......He sinks to the floor,
Wishing this would stop.
A tear, a sigh,
The silent predator enters.
There is a scream,
......He looks to the sky.
Knowing it will come.
Moonlight shines down,
Drenching in silver.
One last breath,
He faces fear,
Giving himself to the night.

My hand in yours
And yours in mine
We lay there together
Knowing no time
The lights will go out
Leaving us blind
And slowly but surely
The tension unwinds
And the hands grow confident
Moving about more
The clothes become binding
And fall to the floor
The sighs give you chills
And each touch is like fire
And eventually both
Will give way to desire
And when the passion subsides
And you drift off to sleep
The angels turn to envy;
For your love they all weep.
