Every Last Moment Counts 1Viktor was deep in thought until a strange choking sound to his left distracted him.Every Last Moment Counts 1 in Fan Fiction More Like This
A soft splat echoed in the otherwise silent hospital room, followed by a pungent odour that permeated the air.
What is that God-awful smell? Viktor thought to himself as he lay on his bed next to the window. It was a very familiar smell, acidic and acrid to the nose. He soon realized it smelled exactly like vomit.
"Glkkkk..." There was a faint moan from someone in the bed beside his. There was a thin curtain hanging between the beds, but that still couldn't mask the person's obvious misery and suffering. Viktor hadn't realized that there was anyone in the other bed, or that there was even another bed in the first place. He vaguely wondered if whoever it was had heard him talking incessantly to himself at night.
"Who's there?" he called out nervously. This had better not be a trick... everyone knows I'm blind and pretty much helpless, after all...

"EEYAAAH!!!" he screeched, being very surprised and none too happy that someone had awakened him from a peaceful sleep in this manner. "Don't DO that!"
"Sorry... I just wanted to say hi..." Sarah said sheepishly.
Viktor sighed as he propped himself up on his pillow. "It's all right, I guess." He suddenly remembered that Sarah was supposed to be terminally ill. "Shouldn't you be in bed?"
"Prolly, but I feel great today! Maybe I'm getting better."
A small flicker of hope burned inside Viktor. Maybe I won't lose my new friend after all... He mulled over what he just thought. Friend? When was the last time I had a real friend?... I can't remember...
"Viktor, you okay?" Sarah asked, noticing his sudden silence.
"Hmm? Oh yes, I'm fine. Would you please open the shades so I can feel the sunlight?"
"Sure!" Viktor scrunched up towards the front of the bed to give Sarah room. She crawled onto the bed and l

"Hey there, sailor." She smiled at Viktor, her short blonde bob bopping up and down as she moved.
"I beg your pardon?" Viktor replied incredulously, completely taken aback.
"I'm just fooling with you. I do that with all my..." she gave a sly smile. "...Charges."
Viktor laughed nervously. Oh God, the first time a woman wants me and I don't want her back. he thought.
"Do you think my uniform is too tight? I think it might be." she asked.
The little girl muttered "Yes." Viktor heard her, but apparently the nurse didn't notice.
"You know I'm blind, right?"
"Oh!" the nurse turned a vibrant shade of red, but quickly recovered. "Well then why don't I just-"
The little girl suddenly started to moan. "Oooh! OOOOH! Get a doctor! Oooh!"

"Sarah?" he said softly, hoping she could hear him. The room was silent. "SARAH?!"
A nurse walked into the room. "Sweetie... Sarah died last night. I'm sorry."
"No, that can't be right..." he muttered. He limped over to the bed and felt around for Sarah, but could feel only a sheet and a pillow. "Why didn't anyone wake me up?" he demanded.
"We thought it best not to disturb you," the nurse said gently. "So we set you in that chair."
A long silence permeated throughout the room.
"I need to be alone..." Viktor said. The nurse left.
"I never even got to say a final good-bye..." he mumbled to himself. He was angry at God. Why Sarah? He could understand his own punishment, but how did Sarah deserve what she had gotten? At least she's in a better place... he thought. No, not a better pla

A very pregnant Jeff was lying on a small bed that had been wheeled into an operating room. Ken was right beside him, holding his hand, but that didn't completely stop Jeff from being nervous.
"Can you feel this?" a doctor asked, sticking a needle into his side.
"Give him just a little more anesthetic." she instructed the nurse.
"How about now?" she said, sticking him again.
"Good. Are you ready?"
Jeff sighed. "As ready as I'll ever be... hey, can Ken stay in here?"
"If that is your wish, then yes."
"Of course I'll stay, Jeff." Ken replied.
Jeff squeezed Ken's hand and shut his eyes. Something that felt like velcro ripping was tearing along his stomach, he assumed that this was the doctor performing the C-section. Ken himself was looking away, as he was a bit squeemish. They both heard a baby

Hallelujah: Holy DoveOkay, I admit it; I'm bald. I'm not going through chemotherapy or anything, it isn't that serious. But about half a year ago I felt a strange bump on the back of my head when I scratched my scalp after emerging from the shower. Being the curious person I am, I pulled my hair back and looked in the three-panel mirror in my bathroom. There was definitely something under my hair, and it didn't look like a mole. It looked like a symbol of some sort. Becoming more curious by the second, I took my razor and shaved my head. Looking back now, I probably shouldn't have done that, since I now have to wear a wig or a hoodie in public. But it did lead to an interesting discovery: There was an entire row of strange symbols on the back of my head.

In an ideal world, the young should not concern themselves with thoughts of death. The world is not an ideal place, however, and when a man chooses the path of the Shinobi the prospect of his own demise can became an all too frightening reality.
Kabuto was barely in his twenties, in the prime of his life. Healthy, fit and with energy to spare. He had learned to control his chakra to heal wounds rapidly. To fight off illness. To push himself to limits that would break other men. Death was something Kabuto had been a witness to many times. He had been its agent for many an unexpecting opponent. An Anbu assassin at an early age, he had learned how to perfect death. As a medical ninja, he had the power to halt death in its tracks. Death was simply a part of life. The one force that made all men equal, be they pauper or king, genius or fool, dishonorable retch or decorated hero. All would go to the same end.
But not Orochimaru. He would be here long after the

Those inquisitive eyes were staring at him again. For all of Cas' powers, it seemed as if his so-called guardian angel could never tell exactly what was on his mind. Dean was always happy to take solace in that fact. That at least he could lord something...anything... over the annoying bastard. Unfortunately it also meant that he was a constant point of fascination to Cas. And those bright blue eyes were filled with questioning. An intense longing for answers Dean wasn't sure he could properly give.
Cas had been so child-like in his belief, and, in his own anger and frustration Dean had ripped the veil from his eyes and left him with nothing to cling to. Except for Dean himself. For all they'd been through, he couldn't help but look at the angel with a mixture of pity and loathing. He hadn't asked for any of this. He hadn't asked to be saved. But now they were in this together and there was no going back.

There had been a time when Anko had been unafraid to set foot in The Forest of Death. She knew her way around it far better than most of the older and more experienced ninja. She had once felt at home here. So much so, that she had been chosen by the Hokage himself to head the second stage of the Chuunin Exams.
But that had been quite some time ago.
She involuntarily shuddered as she stood before the large gate that divided the rest of Konoha from her former refuge. She was terrified. Ever since that night, she couldn't bring herself to face this place. Cursing herself for being so weak, she absently ran a hand across the back of her neck.
Orochimaru, she knew, was no longer lurking here. It was foolish to think that he would be waiting for her, like some monster in a child's story book. The nightmares she'd suffered. They would never end unless she faced the source of her fear. The Forest had been her one place of escape when she had been younger. Damned

A month had passed since Orochimaru had decided to move yet again to a new retreat. These middle of the night excursions were often sudden and secretive. Kabuto supposed he should be used to them, but he was a man who liked order and every upheaval always unsettled him. He would have to attune himself again to the new surroundings, just as he had the others. It was a process that caused him a lot of sleepless nights. Laying awake, listening to the foreign noises, he would try to convince himself that, soon enough, they would seem familiar to him and he could finally let his guard down again. The island was much different than the cave they had been dwelling in for nearly a year, which had been different from the underground tunnels the time previous to that.

How long had he been like this? Days? Weeks? Months? He wasn't sure anymore. He was terrified of this uncertainty. This loss of control.
Vaguely, he could recall the cold, expressionless face of the creature that had called itself Sasori. The soft tinkling of bells. His instincts had told him to flee, but some force had bound him to where he stood. A voice, deep and hollow, had commanded him to move and, despite the screaming resistance in his head, he had taken several steps forward. Limbs manipulated like a child's toy.
What had he done, unwittingly, after that time? Where was he now?
Vividly, the events previous came to him. His adoptive father had sent him to retrieve specimens of a healing plant for use at Konoha's hospital. He remembered arguing with him-such a trivial chore was beneath him now. He was fourteen, ready to finally pass the Chuunin Exams. He needed to prepare for them. Not waste time playing errand-boy.

There were few things in the universe, Orochimaru thought, that could endure. Nations vanished in the fog of war, species went extinct, even the light of the stars themselves were merely flickering reminders of their deaths some eons away in space. The human body, he knew all too well, was not destined to last. How cruel were the gods to house even the most vibrant of minds and souls in such fragile vessels. This temporary form he now inhabited would again begin to rot and a new one needed to replace it. He would find a way to solve this problem permenently.
Or rather, Kabuto would. If anyone was able to find the key to true immortality, it would be his brilliant and most dedicated doctor. Kabuto, who had no scruples tampering with nature's design. Kabuto who viewed him already as something divine. Whose love gave sway over any qualms he might entertain about such matters. Orochimaru doubted his med-nin had any fears or doubts to begin with.

That this was the life he had always wanted. The life his brother had always coveted. Dean had been content playing the free bird. Had actually enjoyed the open road, the thrill of the hunt. The feeling that he was making a difference. If he had believed in fate, he would have said that was his purpose here.

Research. To learn as much as possible about the world around them. To discover all the secrets. The unending quest for knowledge. These ideals seemed noble to Kabuto. Knowledge, after all, was real power. Orochimaru was one of the few people who truly understood that sentiment.
At first, he had believed that the Sennin was using his experiments as an excuse to torture. That he took sadistic joy in watching those loyal to him give their last breaths for him. But it became clear that this was not his intention. Frustration creased his face whenever a test failed. Failure was not something Orochimaru tolerated well. Especially his own. The search for mastering every jutsu would take decades-or longer. It seemed only natural to Kabuto that the snake lord would seek immortality. Others might use such a gift to make the world tremble at their feet. But Kabuto knew better. Orochimaru's only fear was his own demise. Forever locked in a battle with time. Kabuto believed t

Timothy, God and the DevilIt is that most irreconcilable fallacy of human existence, Timothy mused to himself from the disenchanted fringe of his philosophy course, that we as a species are forever torn between our desire for the freedom of opportunity, choice, and consequences ushered in by the chaos of id; and our necessity for the structure of predictability, security, and certainty heralded by the order of the superego. The crux of mankinds survival rest upon the discovery of common ground entrenched somewhere between these dissonant idioms, and as such we as a people are forever balanced ever so tenuously on the preservation of order that we might be permitted a handful of chaos, the sacrifice of the self for the other that the self might be preserved at all.Timothy, God and the Devil in Philosophical More Like This

There was a fleeting mixture of shame and amusement that stirred in him at the prodding of the women to be the prerequisite party animal of their little entourage, but once theyd scattered to their own fringes of the nightclubs aural orgy he found himself quite comfortably nestled in the tattered pile of mothballs near the bar, casting a cursory glance around the perimeter of his periphery before lighting up another smoke.The Curious Tale of Rurik 5 in Fantasy More Like This

And trapped within another castle
That he shall save her, wearing the promise she pinned to his heart
As she walked away for the very last time.
He is devoted to her, his life is hers
And he will die
If that is what he must do to rescue her.
Companions may accompany him during the course of his quest,
But ultimately it is he
And he alone
