Every Last Moment Counts 4A soft, faint voice called out to him in his dream. Viiiiiiktooor...Every Last Moment Counts 4 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Viktor suddenly awoke to a faint moaning in the bed next to his. "Mommy... Daddy... Viktooooor..."
"Sarah? What's wrong?" he asked, sincerely alarmed by the faintness of her voice.
"I can't breathe..." she wheezed weakly.
Viktor grabbed his crutches and hobbled over to her bed, nearly pulling down the curtain between them in the process. They both knew it was time. He felt for the bed and kneeled before it, setting his crutches aside. He leaned over Sarah, for although he could not see her, he could feel her presence in the smell of stale vomit and the wheezing of her breath.
Pity and sadness overcame Viktor. Though he had always known in his heart that this would happen, he had kept telling himself that she always had just one more day left. He still held on to the smallest glimmer of hope that this would pass and she would be fine, but he secretly knew the truth of what would become of her.
Seraphine- Part OneWha what is this? Miss Morgan said as the caged rat she had placed in front of the energy beam slowed down to a stop.Seraphine- Part One in Science Fiction More Like This
She had been working late that night at the paranormal research institute, having found an odd energy source while looking for the energy signals of ghosts. This odd energy source was on a wavelength that not many had tuned into before, probably because nothing interesting ever happened on it. But tonight was different.
Morgan had noticed that moving objects, both living and nonliving, would become nearly petrified near this beam of energy. Finding this peculiar, she placed a certain filter in front of the beam. Suddenly, the exact opposite effect happened as to the first one: The rat started speeding up! Not only that, but it gnawed through the solid metal bars of its cage and took off across the table it was on.
Morgan, of course, was too dumbstruck to even notice what the rat was doing.
Over the weeks, she studied this filtered ene
Children of ForeverProcyon and Mesarthim were two children of approximately ten years. They were twins, though one wouldn't be able to tell anyways, considering that everyone on the planet Wai looked almost exactly the same. They were unusual children. While most of Wai's inhabitants had no emotions, they could feel a limited range of them. This was due to the fact that their father experimented with a machine that would allow him to feel emotions before he left the planet.Children of Forever in Science Fiction More Like This
The two children lived in the nursery for the older children. People on Wai did not raise their own young, instead they brought them to large nurseries to be raised by machines. However, the parents did occasionally visit their young to make sure that all was well with their offspring. Today happened to be visiting day.
Deneb entered the nursery and signed the check-in. She gracefully glided down the hallway towards the play area, where the children would play-practice their skills for when they may need them in the future. Most gaine

"Hmm... alright... I'll tell you who your father is if you'll work in my lab for century or two."
"That's the deal, take it or leave it... Garrett refuses to help out in the lab, and I'm currently overworked... pfft... stupid mortals, always shooting DNA at each other out of various body parts... Of course, I would provide you with all the machines you'd ever need to eat."

"Well... are we still on for lunch tomorrow? You know how much we enjoy seeing you."
"Yeah, uh, sure. Listen, I have to go now, see you tomorrow, BYE!" he said hurriedly, glancing offscreen in midsentence. Was it Deneb's imagination, or was there someone else in his lab making odd huffing noises?
"Ready for a romantic evening, m'dear?" Forever said seductively as he walked into the room. He wrapped his four arms around Deneb and whispered into her ear, "Just the two of us?"

Electric Lucifer simply stared at her. He had heard of this machine-like demigod that ate other machines before, but had never seen her until now. He had also heard rumors that she was his illegitimate daughter, but he had never believed them. And yet, there was only one reason she would be here...
Cordula and Tarmo, Lucifer's two small children, clumsily ran into the office. Tarmo ran over to his father and clung to his back, while Cordula stood beside him.
"Daddy, what's wrong? We heard you shout..." Cordula said softly.

However, just as he said that, a pink fuzzy head appeared from under the blanket covering Deneb, accompanied with the sound of a baby crying. Dr. Rigel picked up the baby and wiped it off with the towel, then wrapped it in a blanket. "Congrats.

"Sorry if I made it look like I was avoiding you. I never intended for this to happen." He grabbed his wrists tightly when I noticed new scars on his wrists.
"Why do you do this to yourself?" Tears started streaming down his cheeks.
"I'm so weak. Such a little weakling. I'll never stand up to him." I reached for Zack and embraced him in a tight hug. He hugged back and calmed down quickly.

In our youth, the posing macho bravado used to annoy me to no end. Now, I look back on it with a fond smile. I couldn't imagine you being any other way and I'm not surprised many women fell for it.

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.

No emotion. No compassion. No turning back. The true test of a shinobi is to block out all that is human. To become the perfect killer. To rely on nothing but instinct and self-preservation. Make your targets faceless, nameless shadows to be dispatched. The only mercy shown: a quick death.
No clan. No mother. No father. No village.
Just the goal.
I was exceptional. Successful beyond all expectation. My will of fire burned so strong it became as the light of the sun. It scorched me to the core and blinded me with its radiance. But even with all the blood on my hands, I failed to exterminate that which was most precious to me. My final hope at restoring us to our former glory. The only one who could avenge all my sins. The sins of the Uchiha clan.
Despise me. Let your hatred be your strength. Let your veins boil over with the rage of what was taken from you. Make me a monster in your eyes. A dragon for the valiant hero to slay.

It shouldn't be like this. Living a lie because he had promised...goddamn it...swore on what he had truly believed to be his last day on earth, that he would pretend he was normal. 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. Once, long ago, he would have laughed and said perhaps that it was divine will in that sarcastic tone of his. But oh how he was a Believer now. God didn't care. Angels were dicks. They made you feel your life had some meaning again and then left without so much as a goodbye. Maybe that was the real reason he was here.

Konoha's budding leaves. The young Chuunin whose youth and un-jaded vision offered limitless promise. Kabuto had to wonder if Orochimaru truly saw it that way. He had once been told by the Sennin that there was nothing to be found in that village save for mediocrity and mental restraint. These missions for collecting data were starting to feel like a test. That he would dutifully perform any pointless chore that he had been asked to do. He was just shy of nineteen. How long did Orochimaru really expect him to keep this act up?
Besides, Orochimaru would never be satisfied with common stock. Especially when he already possessed a flower of exceptional beauty and rarity.
Who would one day bloom into his full potential. Only to be plucked. Like all exotic flora, it took a careful hand to nurture and coax him. Orochimaru had done well in providing him that.

The crossroads. The dividing point between two diverse paths. Kabuto had the distinct feeling that both could only lead to his ruin. If he stayed, he would be annihilated along with the rest of Konoha. If he chose to go with Orochimaru, he would be bound forever.
Nothing had been revealed to him at all despite Orochimaru's declaration of trust. Having to play baby-sitter to Sasuke and his pathetic team of Genin. Injuring himself in the process...
How much more will I bleed for you?
Orochimaru's instructions had been clear: retrieve Sasuke. But that seemed too risky even for the Sennin. This had to be a test. To see if he was capable of following orders. To find out the extent of his skills. A final act that could only end in subservience. Or betrayal.
Neither option seemed suitable. Well, there were always more than two choices from which to pick.

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

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.

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.

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.

Perilously he shall abandon all thoughts, all desires
Everything must be lost
If he is to be reunited with his princess.
Allies and kin shall fleet before him, but
They are nothing
They are not the princess.

The Curious Tale of Rurik 6There was no palpable change in the physiology of the were-tapir as he finally realized that his daughter had disappeared from her perch; the metamorphosis that overtook him now was one of subtlety and feeling, imperceptible and deceitful underneath the layered shifts in his emotions. His breaths, then, remained slow and heavy; his heart still hammering violently against his ribcage, his sweat beading over the fur of his brow such as it were. But no more was he afflicted with the impassioned lust, the convalescing affection that was inspired within him as he cradled his vampire in his arms, and felt her timidity bleeding through the thin mesh of her arms. A distilling fear, a panic leeching away these scant traces of warmth blossomed on his face alone, and so only Morgan could have realized how dreadful his life had become in the beat of a tango.The Curious Tale of Rurik 6 in Fantasy More Like This

The Curious Tale of Rurik 2Rurik took his first drag on the thirteenth cigarette of the day as he hauled his considerable bulk off the park bench, letting a crooked smile flash between the unshaven stubble around his lips as he caught an atypically carefree Kimberly swinging from the monkey bars, dangling the sticky shaft of her perpetually rainbow lollipop from her puffy mouth. Much rarer were these moments, the picturesque, homemade videos playing out before him that occasionally kept his world from turning and tossing long enough for him to dwell on the happier times, the married times, and (when he was feeling particularly nostalgic), the skinny times. Of course, there were still happy times, when a homicidally-driven lover gave him the chance to be her fuzzy, elephantine teddy bear without leaving his mortality hanging in the balance. And sometimes during those moments he found himself, often unwillingly, buying into what Morgan was selling, and saw the faintest, blurriest glimpses of an ordinaryThe Curious Tale of Rurik 2 in Short Stories More Like This
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

Where daydreams and monsters forget all their pain.
Thorns still basking in midnights dread,
Drown out the nightmares in yesterdays rain.
Im wishing for a light where tomorrow should be,
And dreaming of today locked away by my heart,
Alone I feel bonds tear again at this peace,
A fairy tales serenity promised.
Run through snowflakes at summers dawn,
In memories tinted in love and by lies.
Pure and innocent as a fawn,
Wandering through your kaleidoscope skies.
I wash away the sins and the shame from my hands,
I try to fly with the seeds borne on the wind.
But my spirit falters, remains on the land,
And only believes in the fairy tales.
Im falling through the shadows and into the light,
And still I am blinded to half of the world.
I want to be closer, to hear its alright,
But maybe its only a fairy tale.
The Curious Tale of Rurik 1Rurik held up the tape recorder to the womans face, and asked in the most droll of tones, Any comments from you on this terrible accident, maam? Unsurprisingly, the freshly-bloodied carcass in front of him was unable to muster up so much as a single no comment, and in its silence drew a thin, amused smile from the portly journalists lips. He turned to the police officer whod been overseeing the investigation up to that point, and who was now staring at Rurik half-expecting the man to muse aloud just why he was unable to get a proper quote from the subject of his story. Officer Digbury, Id like to thank you again on behalf of myself, my paper, and all the people who you help keep safe in their homes well, except for this one, but we all slip up occasionally.The Curious Tale of Rurik 1 in Short Stories More Like This
