You can't give up the fight
The argument in the yard was finally starting to die down. Clementine, with the help of Louis, had managed to talk Marlon down.
"Just let me leave. You'll never have to see me again,"
Marlon pleaded to everyone as he slowly took a step towards Clementine.
"Just let me become... a bad memory. Just give me that.. Please.."
He continued, sounding lost.. like he had no fight left in him anymore. Clementine thought about it. She had a hard choice to make.. But she already how they would be doing this. They'd let Marlon stay, just not as a leader, and give him a chance to atone for something he'd done out of fear.
"Alright..."
Clementine said as Marlon stood next to her looking almost helpless and just.. waiting. Everyone else waited, too. Even Rosie was silent. And then... the silence was interrupted with a loud bang, that of a gun. And as Marlon fell down on the ground in pain in front of the others and revealed AJ was holding the gun, that he was the one to pull the trigger, everyone look

Our love is like a song - Louis + Clementine
It was another calm night. Also another night spent without being able to sleep. I had spent my nights awake pretty much ever since Clementine had arrived at this school. She was.. something else. At first I didn't understand what I felt towards her, because I'd never felt like that before. But as time went on and I learned more and more about her, I finally began to understand. I thought I was in love. And despite really feeling the need to sleep, I just couldn't do it. And so, tonight, like on so many nights before this, I sat by my piano and calmly let my fingers run across the keys, producing some beautiful melodies.. as beautiful as I could get with a piano that was out of tune. Once again tonight I had lit up a couple candles to give me some light. I was so caught up in working my piano magic that I didn't even hear the door open and someone come in. That someone stopped soon after coming in and stood by the door, almost like they were mesmerized over what they saw. But finally,

Should have believed harder - a Parappa oneshot
It was dark when I woke up from my deep sleep. I heard something, and soon understood what had woken me up. The phone was ringing, and no one was there to answer it. It just kept going and going until finally I managed to get up and make my way to the phone. And as I answered, I didn't yet have any clue about what was going to happen next.
- Hello..?
I said, tiredly rubbing my eyes with my free hand. Who on earth could be calling at this hour? The unknown caller was saying something about a restaurant and I had trouble keeping up with him. I didn't even know where he'd gotten this number. Maybe he'd heard about my reputation as a devoted and hardworking youth. I was so tired that I barely said anything, just stood there and listened. Occasionally I mumbled something that could be taken as a affirmative response. After some more time the call finally ended, and I was on my way back to bed. I almost fell back to sleep before my head even made contact with the pillows. I didn't really und

I was designed to investigate deviant androids and deal with them, as well as assist the Detroit City Police Department. Lieutenant Anderson on the other hand.. I was assigned to assist him in cases involving androids. But he didn't think too highly of my kind due to some unpleasant past experiences, I believed at the time. But despite his hate towards androids we kept working together. He wasn't afraid to say that I was harassing him and following him around like a poodle.
One day I arrived at his house after not being able to find him at Jimmy's Bar. A new case had just come to my attention. After finding Hank.. Lieutenant Anderson collapsed on the floor I broke the window and went in. Then I met with his dog, Sumo.

#23 - I'll see you someday beneath the cherry tree
It was a beautiful day in Japan. Very beautiful, but nothing out of the ordinary. Rioichi Cooper was on his way to get more fish. He had just very recently opened his sushi restaurant but it had already proved to be a success. The customers just kept coming in and he had again run out of fish. He was on a very good mood. He did everything by himself so his job could be hard, but it was also rewarding because he got to do what he loved. As he walked with light steps toward his favorite fishing spot, he had no idea that this day would change not only his life, but someone else's as well.
As he got closer, he noticed someone in front of his fishing pond. Of course he only saw this person fom behind but could soon tell that it was another raccoon. A female raccoon. She was as white as snow. Rioichi grew curious, and as he started making his way toward this lady, his plan was simple. He was going to politely greet her, maybe ask how she was doing, and then calmly proceed to fish. Rioichi's

The start of something beautiful
It was another normal, beautiful day in Ponyville. But for two ponies it would be the one to change their lives forever..
One of the two was a stallion with a light yellow coat. He had a certain glint in the corner of his eye. His name was Flim, and he was just on the road with his twin brother, Flam. They were on their way to Ponyville.
And then there was a light blue alicorn princess who went by the name Evangeline. She was the princess of spring, and was also visiting Ponyville on this very day. It was the first day of the cider season and she waited to taste the famous Apple family cider.
As the Flim Flam brothers arrived to the Apple family farm, they were met with a huge crowd of ponies, some happy and some very grumpy because the Apples had just run out of cider. One of the ponies stood out of the rest even though it wasn't her number one intention. Princess Evangeline was well known in Ponyville because she regularly stopped by for a visit. So as the crowd saw her, everypony bo

That day was like any other day so far. Jack sat in his room recording a new video. The irish man was obviously super loud, so he had no idea what was going on in his house. To put it shortly, someone had snuck in and now made his way around the house, slowly closing in on Jack. Eventually he started feeling like something was wrong. He straight up shut down his computer and turned around. That's when he saw they guy who invaded his home. He was hanging something up on the ceiling, and he had a familiar face.
"Aaaaghh, Jesus fucking Christ!"
Jack yelled as he jumped up.
"What are you doing here, you swedish meatball?!"
"I wanted to see you, bro,"
this man, Felix, also known as PewDiePie, said with a familiar smirk.
"So you break into my home? What is this, some Hello, Neighbor shit? And what did you hang up on the roof?"
Jack wanted to know. Felix smirked again.
"Well, you know what they say about mistletoes, man,"
he said and pointed up. When Jack glanced up and saw the mistletoe, all

The argument in the yard was finally starting to die down. Clementine, with the help of Louis, had managed to talk Marlon down.
"Just let me leave. You'll never have to see me again,"
Marlon pleaded to everyone as he slowly took a step towards Clementine.
"Just let me become... a bad memory. Just give me that.. Please.."
He continued, sounding lost.. like he had no fight left in him anymore. Clementine thought about it. She had a hard choice to make.. But she already how they would be doing this. They'd let Marlon stay, just not as a leader, and give him a chance to atone for something he'd done out of fear.
"Alright..."
Clementine said as Marlon stood next to her looking almost helpless and just.. waiting. Everyone else waited, too. Even Rosie was silent. And then... the silence was interrupted with a loud bang, that of a gun. And as Marlon fell down on the ground in pain in front of the others and revealed AJ was holding the gun, that he was the one to pull the trigger, everyone looked.. shocked, horrified. They looked at AJ, unable to believe what he'd just done.
"What.. the hell, dude?!"
Louis was the first one to yell, giving a frustrated and scared look to the kid. And in the middle of all that once more started panic everyone stared at Marlon, already thinking for a moment that he was dead, and in the background they could hear Rosie's angry barking change into a whimper as she forcefully pulled herself free from her leash and ran straight to Marlon, indicating that he was actually still alive. But he was in a really bad place.

Eventually, after getting over the initial shock, Ruby stepped up to take charge.
"Okay, someone help me with this! Someone go get something we can use to try and patch him up!"
Ruby said and Willy ran off.
"And.. whoever's able should help me carry him inside. We'll take him to the admin building."
As they worked together to get Marlon inside, Clementine, now looking pale, turned to AJ who was still holding the gun, standing next to a pool of blood.
"AJ. We need to talk,"
Clementine said in a serious tone.
"....Ok,"
AJ said with a quiet sigh. The last thing the two of them heard before entering the dorms was Marlon groaning in pain, Rosie whimpering and Louis yelling:
"Fuck... Kid shot him right in the stomach..!"

As Clementine and AJ entered their room and she closed the door behind them, a lot of thoughts kept running through her mind. The same scene of Marlon getting shot and then falling on the ground right next to her kept playing in front of his eyes again and again. Like a play or movie that she had no control over. She couldn't do anything to stop it or change its course.
"AJ.."
she said shakily as she sat down on her bed.
"Why did you do it?"
It was a serious question and had to be asked.
"I.. I don't know.."
AJ said back, the gun now resting next to him on his own bed.
"I just.. I was scared. Marlon was so angry. I.. I thought he was going to kill you."
"I.. I know, but.. AJ. Listen. It looked really bad, but Louis helped me talk him down. And when you shot at him, he was no longer a threat to us. He understood that he'd done a lot of things wrong. And we were going to help him make it up to everyone. We.. still are. If he lives through this,"
Clementine then tried to explain calmly, while constantly keeping an eye on AJ.
"Did I do it bad?"
the kid asked.
"Yes, AJ.. I understand why you did it, but it wasn't right. If Marlon survives this, we really have to show him that we can still be trusted.. and to make sure that nothing like this happens ever again. We always try to talk things through first. Gun is always the last resort. Do you understand?"
"Yes, Clem.. Yes, I do.."
AJ responded to her and finally properly looked at her.
"There was so much blood.. Some of it's on you, too.."
he then pointed out, causing Clementine to sigh once more.
"I know.. I was standing right next to Marlon. He seemed to be in a really bad way.."
"Are they going to kill me now, Clem?"
AJ then surprised Clementine with his next question.
"What? No. No one's going to kill anyone. There's gotta be another way to solve this. And there is. We just--"
Clementine cut her sentence midway as they both heard a faint knock on the door. It opened and Tenn stepped inside.
"Hey,"
he briefly said and looked at both Clementine and AJ. Then he spoke again, pointing his next words to Clementine.
"Vi asked me to come and get you.. To go see Ruby. I think she might need some help with Marlon. Or maybe she just wants to talk. Anyway, I came here to keep AJ some company while you're gone."
"Thanks, Tenn, that's really thoughtful of you.."
Clementine said, smiled apologetically before standing up and leaving the room, leaving Tenn and AJ by themselves. She soon stepped out of the dorms and briefly stopped outside to look at the spot where Marlon had collapsed, and then continued her way to the admin building with confused thoughts and a heavy heart.

As Clementine stepped in, she was greeted with a dead silence. The usual sounds of Louis playing his piano were completely absent. Clementine sighed and took a couple deep breaths before continuing forward. Soon she walked up the staircase and was greeted by Ruby who was keeping an eye on Marlon, pretty much like Tenn had said.
"Hey.. How is he?"
Clementine asked as she walked closer.
"Hey, Clementine,"
Ruby said, looking a little distraught.
"I don't know.. I patched him up the best I could, but he's in a lot of pain. I don't know if he'll pull through, yet. There was.. so much blood.."
she continued, turning back to Marlon.
"Is he awake?"
"More or less. I haven't heard him say anything, yet. If we don't count his painful, occasional whimpering. He's got a fever, too. This.. this is so messed up, Clementine.."
"I know.. I.. I'm sorry about all of this."
"Why'd you let him do it?"
Louis asked in a muffled tone. He was sitting in the staircase not too far from where Marlon was being treated, and just.. sat there holding his head. Had been ever since they brought Marlon in. Clementine turned away from Ruby and Marlon to go sit next to Louis. All the time she was expecting him to stand up and walk away, or at least look the other way. But to her surprise, he stayed.
"I.. I didn't want to. I never wanted him to shoot anyone. And it all just.. it seemed to happen all so fast. Louis.. I'm not defending AJ's actions,"
Clementine said as sincerely as she ever could, and Louis turned to get that first actual good look at her. He seemed to be hesitating.
"I.. I know.."
he then said in a quiet tone. He briefly froze when Clementine touched his arm.
"But everything's just.. so fucked up, Clementine.. I.. I know that Marlon did some things I never thought he'd be capable of doing. You were right.. he did lie to my face all this time. And I was mad.. so mad, I still am. I don't know who I'm more mad at, Marlon or AJ. Maybe.. both of them. I was mad at you, too. But.. he's still alive, and.. Clementine, I don't know! I've never had to deal with anything like this before,"
Louis continued while Clementine quietly listened to him without interrupting. Only once Louis had stopped talking, she spoke again.
"I know, Louis.. I know. It's okay, you don't have to say anything more.. I understand why you feel the way you do. Breathe.. Take a deep breath and hold it in. Everything will turn out to be better."
Louis did as Clementine gently instructed him to do, and his breathing calmed down.
"Thank you, Clementine.. Again. For.. listening to me and trying to be the voice of reason. It's.. good that you're around."

Their much needed chat came to a brief halt when they heard Ruby call out for them. Both Clementine and Louis turned to look in her direction.
"Hey, Clementine, can you go get Rosie? She's outside. Marlon is asking for her."
"Of course,"
Clementine said right away and stood up. Louis followed her example.
"I'll come too,"
he said as they walked down the stairs.
"I need some air."
Soon they got outside and saw Rosie right away. She was in her usual spot right by the stairs, but she seemed really distressed. As Louis and Clementine walked to her, they both fixated their eyes to the red splatter of blood in the ground a little ways away from them.
"Shit..."
Clementine heard Louis say, and reached out to softly touch his arm.
"It'll be okay.."
she whispered to him. Louis took a few deep breaths, nodded and said:
"...I know. Thanks, Clem.."
"Anytime,"
Clementine said and smiled.
"Now.. let's get Rosie,"
she added and finally moved closer to her. She still felt a little nervous being around the dog, but after she and Rosie had learned to know each other earlier in Marlon's office she was a little more relaxed. So she proceeded to whistle at the dog, which caused Rosie to perk up and turn to look at Clementine.
"Rosie, come on, girl, Marlon wants to see you,"
she said to Rosie. And as soon as Rosie heard Marlon's name, she stood up and very carefully wagged her little tail. She let out a quiet whine.
"Shh.. it's alright, Rosie.. Let's go."
Rosie turned, walked up the steps and followed Louis and Clementine inside. As the doors closed behind them, Rosie's careful and slow pace became a little faster. Soon she passed Clementine and Louis and continued up the staircase on her own. It was like she knew where her dear owner was. Louis and Clementine looked at each other and then at the dog again. There was no way to stop Rosie to keep her from being with Marlon. After all, she had spent this whole time crying right outside the admin building.
"Let's.. give them a moment.."
Clementine quietly said to Louis and so they decided to hang back.
"Hey.. Hey, Rosie..."
they soon heard Marlon speak in a quiet, still clearly painful voice. It soon got followed by Rosie's worried but affectionate whimpering.
"Shit.. I never understood she was so worried about him.."
Louis basically whispered to Clementine. She just nodded in agreement.
"I.. I missed you, girl.."
Marlon continued and judging by his sudden, yet weak laughing Rosie was licking his face. But soon the laughter was interrupted with a quiet groan of pain. Rosie whimpered again and very, very carefully rested her head on Marlon's chest.

Some days later Marlon was back on his feet despite Ruby's wishes that he would stay still for at least a few more days. But even though he was still feeling pain, he'd gotten sort of sick of doing nothing. But no matter what, he was still wise enough to at least take the small steps and not do too much too soon. And Rosie was keeping an eye on him, following him like a shadow and not let him take a step without her around. After the whole incident and Marlon getting hurt Rosie had become even more protective of him and never left his side. The recovery was slow and painful but Rosie was there to stay forever by her dear owner's side. Marlon's movement was slow, far from his usual pace. But still he tried to convince himself that it was better to try and walk around than just stay still. At least that way he had a chance to do something, and focus on it. But he couldn't make the pain just go away. It came in waves and usually didn't give him much of a warning. It didn't do so this time, either. And as Marlon stopped and briefly collapsed, Rosie was there with him faster than anyone else could have been. The dog whimpered and very carefully placed her head under Marlon's arm to try and support him the best she could.
"Rosie.. thank you, girl.."
Marlon said, clutching his stomach. Rosie's whimpering grew louder. She was a very good girl. And right now she was really worried, too.
"I'm.. I'm alright, don't worry.."
Marlon continued, trying his best to calm her dog down. But she wasn't really buying it. And neither was someone else.
"Dude, did you sneak out or something?"
Louis asked, jogging closer. Rosie turned to look at him and whined.
"I know.. See, even Rosie knows what's going on. She knows that you shouldn't still be walking around. Come on, I'll help you,"
he continued and walked to Marlon's side. Rosie was still standing on the other side. Soon Louis very carefully lifted Marlon back on his feet and after doing so, Rosie parked herself exactly next to Marlon. She wasn't going anywhere. Right then and there, Marlon didn't say much. It could be that he was still feeling really, really sorry for everything that happened in the basement that night.
"Stop acting so tough,"
Louis then broke the silence. Marlon barely looked at him, but it didn't stop Louis.
"You know, it's alright to show weakness. In fact, I don't think I've ever before seen you so vulnerable like you were that night. Right before.. AJ did whatever he did. And when it happened.. we were just all so scared."
Louis took a reassuring breath before he continued talking.
"I was scared that you were going to die."
He was going to say something else, too, but then Marlon cut him off.
"Maybe it would have been better."
"Dude, don't ever say that,"
Louis was quick to interrupt before this type of conversation advanced any further. But Marlon shook his head.
"Lou.. if I ever say something anymore, just let me say this. You could've at least kicked me out, I wouldn't have held a grudge. I lied to you for such a long time. I let you all down.."
he said, sounding a little down. Louis carefully pat his back and then decided to say:
"I'm not sure if you knew this already.. But it was Clementine's call to let you stay with us.. but we also chose a new leader. Whatever you did.. it's pretty fucked up. But you're still my friend, almost like my brother. That hasn't changed."
Louis gave Marlon a genuine smile, and he tried to smile back the best he could. While they were talking, they'd made it back to the admin building's stairs and Louis, thinking that Marlon could use a little break, helped him sit down before sitting right next to him. Rosie laid down close to them.
"Who's in charge here now?"
Marlon then decided to ask, now looking at his friend.
"Oh, right, you don't know it yet. We chose Violet to.. to take your position,"
Louis said carefully, sounding a little hesitant.
"You know.. good for her. Surely she'll be able to run this place better than I did,"
Marlon reassured him and giving his approval to Violet.
"Marlon.. Dude, you kept us going for so long and always gave us courage. You kept the fight alive in all of us, no matter the price you had to pay for it. It sucks that it all ended like this,"
Louis said, wanting to get at least some weight off his chest.
"And.. I know I left you to deal with all the tough decisions and the sleepless nights. I could've done so much more to help you, but I just chose to close my eyes from it all."
Now it was Louis who sounded guilty.
"You did your own thing and did whatever you felt like was the right thing to do,"
Marlon reassured him.

On the other side of the yard Violet was having her own chat with Clementine.
"Looks like the guys are bonding again,"
she said to Clem as she sat down next to her. Clementine nodded.
"They sure are. And it's good that they're doing so.. it's good for both of them to clear the air."
"Yeah.. You're right,"
Violet said and sighed. Clementine looked at her.
"You alright, Vi?"
"Yeah.. more or less. Still fighting my own battle.. to get over the truth about what happened to the twins. Someone should have guessed something. And if at least some of us would've been wise enough to ask some questions, maybe none of this fucked up shit would never have happened. It's.. it's just so stupid.."
Violet said and Clementine looked at her feeling some sympathy.
"I understand how you feel. But we'll all make it through this together,"
she said and then decided to change the subject.
"So.. how's leadership treating you?"
Violet accepted the new topic and chuckled briefly.
"I'm getting used to it. Despite what he did, Marlon did leave some big shoes for me to fill.."
"Well.. I think that you're doing really good,"
Clementine praised Violet.
"So does everyone else. You're like a natural born leader. Headstrong and determined."
"Now you're just flattering me, Clem.."
Vi pointed out.
"Thanks, though. It.. it feels good to hear it."
"Anytime."
Violet turned to look at Clem and gave her a small but genuine smile.
"It's been a crazy year.."
Violet said.
"But.. as much as it sucked at first, it kind of feels relieving to know what really happened. With the twins, and with Marlon.. I really hope that from now on things will be better,"
she said, telling her wish to Clementine. And she had just the right thing to say to Violet.
"They will. We'll learn to work better together. Everyone and everything will be alright."
You can't give up the fight
Another TWDG oneshot. I really like Marlon and what happened to him was really sad and unfortunate. I wanted to take another go on the moments that in the game were his last, and make it so that he actually lives and has to deal with all the struggles and guilt. I listened to Pink's Bridge of Light as I wrote this story.
Loading...
It was another calm night. Also another night spent without being able to sleep. I had spent my nights awake pretty much ever since Clementine had arrived at this school. She was.. something else. At first I didn't understand what I felt towards her, because I'd never felt like that before. But as time went on and I learned more and more about her, I finally began to understand. I thought I was in love. And despite really feeling the need to sleep, I just couldn't do it. And so, tonight, like on so many nights before this, I sat by my piano and calmly let my fingers run across the keys, producing some beautiful melodies.. as beautiful as I could get with a piano that was out of tune. Once again tonight I had lit up a couple candles to give me some light. I was so caught up in working my piano magic that I didn't even hear the door open and someone come in. That someone stopped soon after coming in and stood by the door, almost like they were mesmerized over what they saw. But finally, after a few minutes of me cluelessly playing the piano that person finally broke our mutual silence.
"Louis..?"
a familiar, calm voice suddenly asked, causing me to hit the wrong key and then stop playing all together. I turned to look and saw Clementine. And as she finally walked closer, I could see just how pretty she looked in the low light.
"You can't sleep?"
she continued, stopping by the piano and then sitting next to me without me even having the chance to ask.
"No.."
I answered her question and looked into her deep, pretty eyes.
"I've.. been finding it really hard to sleep recently, so I usually just come to spend my nights in here.."
I then admitted. I noticed how Clementine looked a little concerned.
"Look.. I don't want to keep you from doing what makes you happy or something, but you really do look like you could use a good night's sleep,"
she kindly pointed out. I had to agree with her.
"I really could, you're right, Clem.. It's just that I can't seem to do it.. Every time I try to sleep, every time I close my eyes.. It's pointless. My.. my thoughts just start running in circles and they're not stopping. And, uh..."
I suddenly stopped midsentence, turned my gaze away from Clementine and just awkwardly stared down, looking nervous and uneasy. I didn't see it but Clementine looked worried.
"Hey, Louis.. Are you feeling alright?"
she asked as I bit my lip.
"No.. not really, nope.."
I somehow managed to answer to her. She was sitting so close to me, I could almost hear the steady beat of her heart. My face was heating up, I could feel it.

I think Clementine saw it, too, because before I could do anything else, I felt Clementine's hand touch my forehead. Her hand felt cool and almost calming in a way. I on the other hand felt like I was burning up.
"Well, I don't think you've got a fever or anything, but you are really, really warm. Like, unusually so. Why don't we try to call it a night?"
I listened to Clem speak in that soft voice of hers but was unable to say anything to her in return. That was enough for her to grow more and more concerned. She swiftly moved in a little closer until we were sitting side by side. She leaned just a little bit forward and laid her head against my chest. That's when she heard the frantic beating of my heart. It was getting faster and faster by the minute.
"I had to check if you're still breathing.. I thought you were about to have a heart attack or something.."
she broke the silence in that same lovely, soft voice that I loved so much.
"I'm breathing, although barely.. Feels like my heart stopped for a moment,"
I finally said, somewhat able to speak again. But my heart wasn't going to calm down anytime soon.
"I.. I've been trying to work on a new song.."
I then continued, stuttering a little. Clementine just smiled at me lovingly.
"Oh yeah? What's it called?"
she wanted to know.
"Uh.. Clementine. You know, because I like fruit.. and, because I like you even more.."
I found the courage to admit. And in the soft, calm light I thought I saw a slight blush creep up on her cheeks. And it was really, really adorable. The thousand butterflies in my stomach woke up again, all at once.
"Wow, that.. that sounds really nice. I would love to hear it when it's ready,"
she said with a smile, causing my entire heart to feel like it was about to burst out of my chest. And at the same time it felt like it was melting. I loved that girl so, so much.. More than I'd ever loved anyone in my entire life.
"You'll be the first one to hear it.. The only one to do so,"
I swore to her, looking much more serious than I'd possibly ever looked before.

"Hey.. I know how important working on this song is to you, Louis, but.. I bet you'd be able to work on it better if you had at least a few hours of sleep first,"
she pointed out to me softly but firmly.
"I would like to.. but.. Clem, I can't.."
"Let me help you then, Louis.."
she said, looked me right in the eyes, leaned in closer and closer until her lips very gently touched my own. I slowly closed my eyes, my heart still feeling like it was on the verge of exploding, and a little clumsily returned the kiss. She didn't mind or notice. The kiss lasted on for a while because neither of us really wanted to let go. This felt so perfect.. so real and right, like it was meant to be. This was love, and I'd never ever felt anything quite like it before. This night had just changed everything. After we finally managed to slowly pull apart from one another, we still maintained the eye contact.
"I.. Clementine, I.. like you.. I mean, like-like you.."
I said, stuttering once more. Clementine laughed that quiet, bubbly, adorable laugh that was the cutest thing I had ever heard.
"I like-like you too, Louis.."
she said with a permanent, lovely smile that made her look even prettier.
"Come with me, please.. I promise you'll get to work on your song more tomorrow.."
"Our song, Clem.."
I gently corrected.
"It's our song.."
"Our song,"
she repeated.
"I like that.."

And with that she stood up from the bench, gently took my hand and carefully pulled me up. My legs felt like wet noodles, but I got up anyway, blew out the candles and then followed her out of the room. She never let go of my hand until we'd gotten outside. Rosie was asleep in her usual spot in front of the admin building. We kept talking and laughing softly as we moved past her and made our way to the dorms. We both knew that AJ was asleep in the room he shared with Clem, so we decided to go to my room instead. Not too long after that we shared one more kiss before getting in bed and curling up against each other. Clementine moved closer to my chest and closed her eyes and eventually fell asleep with the prettiest smile on her face. For some minutes I observed her silently, feeling the happiest and luckiest I'd ever felt in my life before. This felt so.. so right. And eventually I, too, fell asleep, for the first time in many nights. The first thing I saw before closing my eyes, was my beautiful darling, Clementine.
Our love is like a song - Louis + Clementine
Something I worked on last night when I couldn't sleep. I need more cuteness of Clementine and Louis in my life, so this is the result.
Loading...
It was dark when I woke up from my deep sleep. I heard something, and soon understood what had woken me up. The phone was ringing, and no one was there to answer it. It just kept going and going until finally I managed to get up and make my way to the phone. And as I answered, I didn't yet have any clue about what was going to happen next.
- Hello..?
I said, tiredly rubbing my eyes with my free hand. Who on earth could be calling at this hour? The unknown caller was saying something about a restaurant and I had trouble keeping up with him. I didn't even know where he'd gotten this number. Maybe he'd heard about my reputation as a devoted and hardworking youth. I was so tired that I barely said anything, just stood there and listened. Occasionally I mumbled something that could be taken as a affirmative response. After some more time the call finally ended, and I was on my way back to bed. I almost fell back to sleep before my head even made contact with the pillows. I didn't really understand it at that moment, thanks to my tired state, but I'd just promised to take care of some local, busy restaurant for the very next day, starting right around 8 am. I was unable to panic and just slept like a baby.

The panic really did set in as I woke up the next morning. I woke up right around 7.30 so I didn't have much time to get ready. I suddenly remembered everything about the call in clear detail, and because I'd promised to be there right at 8 am, I was already in a hurry and the day had barely started. I threw my nightcap off and dashed into the bathroom. From there I hurried back to my room and changed my clothes. Everything happened so unbelievably fast and I didn't even have time to eat breakfast. And on the very next moment I was already on my way.

I ran as fast as I only could and as I arrived, I was fashionably late. Only for five minutes, but I didn't feel good about it. I was waiting to meet with the staff or something, but there was no one there. Instead waiting for me was a long list of things and instructions on how to do things. As I grabbed the list and started reading, my eyes grew wide. There was so much to read! Get the tables ready, do food preparations, greet the customers, cook and serve the food, do the dishes, clean up the place... I suddenly felt very faint and I didn't understand half of the things I read. There was some restaurant terminology I'd never even heard of. I'd gotten used to eating at a local fast food restaurant which was quite different from this place. This was.. scarily spotless and fancy. Everything had its own place. But I didn't feel at home in here. Still, I didn't have the nerve to call it quits before I'd even started. I never gave up.. but right now I really wanted to.

I was still taking my time just looking around the place when I heard a lively chime from the front door. Someone had come in, my first customers most likely. And so I hurried to see about them. Taking the first two orders was easy, so was cooking to order.. For the most part anyway, because, I'm not gonna lie, there were a few hiccups. But eventually the customers got what they wanted. And I still had a genuine smile on my face, at least for the moment. But not too long after that everything started to take another turn. More and more customers kept coming in, one after another. And there I was, taking care of things alone, running back and forth, taking orders, cooking food, seeing about the dishes.. orders, food, dishes, run, Parappa, run. Starter, main course, dessert. Repeat and never miss the beat. Think about the customers, don't drag your feet, go go go.. Be nice and friendly. All the instructions were playing cat and mouse in my head, but as even more customers kept coming in to eat, I started to realize something. Soon I would be in trouble, despite my very best efforts to take care of everything. And the worst was yet to come.

About two hours later the restaurant was almost empty, and the remaining customers were almost done eating and getting ready to leave, and so I was back in the kitchen loading up the dishwasher. I was so tired and my legs were hurting.. Not to mention that I hadn't eaten anything today and it didn't even cross my mind to grab a bite to eat. Any which way, I didn't feel too good. But then I heard that chime again and went to see how I could serve my newest customer, forcing my most convincing smile on my face. The guy sitting in the table was.. I don't know, an adult, that's the best way I could describe him. He looked just like someone who visits restaurants like this very regularly and says away from fastfood restaurants which I in turn frequented. He also looked really strict and, in a sense, very scary. Not someone to be messed with. And so I quickly took his order and escaped back into the kitchen. But as I took another look at his order, I gulped. I just about knew what a soufflé was, but I'd never tasted one, let alone actually made one. I had no idea how to do it and I didn't see any cookbooks anywhere. Maybe the actual staff was so good and talented that they didn't need any. There was no one I could call and ask, either, and the scary customer was waiting for his food. I needed help but by now it was just him and me in here and I could never have enough courage to go and ask how to make him his food. And so I nervously started screwing up around the kitchen, trying my very best to cook up even a decent soufflé. But whatever I made, looked absolutely horrible. I threw it into the oven anyway, knowing that by now I was done for, especially because my customer had already yelled at me and demanded that he get his food. I knew I had already wasted too much time on this, and as I finally took the monstrosity of a soufflé out of the oven, I burned my hand because I tried to be as quick as possible. That wasn't my biggest problem, though, because the dish wasn't a pretty sight.

I took it with me anyway and started approaching the impatient gentleman and.. as soon as he saw what I'd come up with, he grew even more angry. And the things he said at me, weren't nice to listen to. A child like me should never have been given the huge responsibility of running a restaurant. And maybe he was right. But after he'd gotten up and left I felt absolutely horrible, that's for sure. The one good thing in this mental breakdown was that no one else was around to see it, for now I was alone. I went back to the kitchen which was just as spotless as it had been when I first stepped into it. But I was dirty, hungry, tired and on the verge of actually crying. I had tried my best, I had believed that I could be able to do it. But now I knew that I should have believed much, much harder. Now I couldn't do it anymore.

In the middle of my breakdown I heard the door open once more.
"Oh no! Not again, please!"
I whimpered, and heard some familiar voices getting closer to my position.
"Parappa, are you in here?"
It was Katy's voice. And Sunny was with her.
"Is everything okay?"
"No!"
I yelled but very quickly corrected myself while hiding behind the counter.
"Yes! Don't come in here!"
"Don't be silly, Parappa,"
Katy said.
"We're your friends and we want to know how you're doing."
My friends quite obviously weren't convinced.
"Alright.."
I sighed because I knew that I couldn't stop them from coming in. Katy would climb over the counter if she had to.
"Just don't ask me to cook you anything. I can't do it."
They heard how defeated I sounded and walked right into the kitchen only to see what a mess I was.
"Wow, Parappa, you look awful!"
Katy blurted out.
"Thanks. No need to rub it in."
I looked miserable, unnaturally so.
"Can we go somewhere else to eat? I haven't had anything this whole day.."
I explained to others, and just then my stomach let out a loud growl.
"How are you even still standing?"
both Katy and Sunny wondered.
"I don't know.. I tried to not think about how hungry I was."
"Oh, Parappa.. How about some burgers, soda and maybe ice cream?"
Upon hearing Katy's suggestion my eyes began to shine. No other answer was needed.
"I'd.. need a change of clothes, though,"
I then said, looking at myself.

After a quick pit stop at home we were on our way. I was hungrier than ever and soon we had sat down and were waiting for our food. I was just telling others about my day, with all of its ups and downs. Mostly the downs.
"I didn't believe I could do it all on my own,"
I admitted to them.
"What? You didn't believe?"
Katy asked, looking straight at me.
"No.. I mean, I did at first, but towards the end it all was just too much. You guys showed up right when I was at my lowest point. And I know that I was trying to turn you away, but.. now I'm just glad that you didn't leave."
"Do you really think we'd just turned around and left you alone with your problems?"
Katy wanted to know, looking serious.
"No.. I really guess not."

Today had been an experience, for sure. One that I won't be forgetting in a long time. And the next time someone asks me to do something as big as this, I'm going to at least bring a friend with me. I sure learned that today.
Should have believed harder - a Parappa oneshot
This has been a long project, let me tell you that. Originally I started working on this sometime in 2012, when I was still in vocational school and I was going to become a chef. It wasn't my dream or anything but it was the only school I got accepted to. And even though I did not really care about it, it wasn't a passion or anything, I still didn't drop out. For three years I valiantly went to school every single day, minus the days I was sick, and eventually I graduated.

Anyway, I was huge into Parappa the Rapper back then and I still am, now more than ever, so I finally decided to finish this project of mine.

Hey, everyone! I like quite a lot of things, starting from writing and drawing. Out of those two especially writing is very close to my heart. It has pretty much taken over. Animals are also something that I love very much, especially dogs, cats, wolves and birds. My life would be so different without my stupid little dog. He's so annoying sometimes, but I couldn't imagine life without him anymore. And speaking of animals, I love going around town and taking photos of different animals with my cellphone's crappy camera if I get the chance. I might just be sitting at the bus station, waiting for bus, and if I for example see a bird walking from in front of me, I just have to take a photo of that. I've got quite a few photos stored up in my cellphone's memory. I think I seriously need a proper camera. And when it comes to photos and just admiring the scenery, sunsets are also something I love to both watch and take photos of. I'm not a very sociable person, I just like to spend my time with animals and taking photos of everything.

Other than those things already mentioned I also love music (couldn't live without it), sleeping and eating. There's almost nothing better than good food. I'm not a very good cook even though I've got a chef's degree. It's not my passion, but at the time I didn't know what else I'd do with my life (I still don't know) but I had to do something with my time. I love watching cooking etc shows on tv though, and Gordon Ramsay is one of my biggest idols/role models. Everytime one of his shows airs on tv, I'll be sure to watch it. Hell's Kitchen was one of the first tv shows I really remember watching.
I'm also a huge user of video games. I just love them. Playing video games is something I'm really good at. If I only got paid for sleeping, eating and playing video games, I'd be the happiest woman on earth : D
And if I'm not playing games myself, I'm often on YouTube watching some let's plays. Markiplier, jacksepticeye, Stephen Georg (StephenVlog and StephenPlays), Cry, DashieXP, LordMinion777 and a finnish gaming group called LaeppaVika are some of my absolute favorites. I can spend so much time with all these guys, it's like they're all my friends, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

But of course there also are things I really dislike. For example spiders. I'm so afraid of them, it's insane. Other things include waking up early, all kinds of wars and fighting, animal abuse.. and so on.

I'm usually a pretty friendly, but socially very awkward person, who doesn't have many friends IRL. On the internet things are quite different. I care about nature and animals and can't stand people who throw their trash out on the street or anything like that. My temper is very short, and people who know me, are well aware of that. I'm super easy to get annoyed. I also find it very hard to accept advice from others, I always want to do things my way. I love my best friend, but I still need some own space and time on a daily basis, when I can decide what I want to do without having to care about others. Sometimes I even feel like I'm afraid of other people. I'm, depending on things of course, pretty easily scared, but I still love horror games and films. During night time my imagination often starts running wild and I can imagine some things happening even though everything's actually normal, like usual. I might have a fear of isolation, even though I only get thoughts like this when I'm by myself in my apartment. I like to have some alone time every now and then, but I still feel kind of isolated sometimes.

And when things come to art.. Well, to be honest, half the time I don't think that the things I do are good enough. I'd like to, but I always compare them to things that other, more skilled artists have made. I see all the differences and then I just almost want to quit this whole art thing. I always think differently on the following day, but it's still not nice to think like this. To think that my art just isn't good enough.

Current Residence: Finland
Favourite genre of music: quite a few, depends on my mood
Favourite style of art: traditional, literature, photography too
Favourite cartoon character: absolutely too many to make a correct list
Personal Quote: "You gotta believe in what you love to do."
