Pa, we have a lot of Land...

Pa, I know you'd never want to split up the farm.

I know that our family's held on to this land for so long. I know that your granddaddy's granddaddy bought it off a shifty guy they all called Crooked Jim. I know that Crooked Jim got shot here. (I know it wasn't any of our family who did it, though.) I know that your own momma got married here, and that your granddaddy built a little tiny chapel on part of the property for the occasion. I know that the chapel burned down three months later when a local boy knocked over a few candles. I know it was never rebuilt.

I know, too, the ins and outs of farming, Pa. I know why we need so much land and I know about rotation, soil fertility, topsoil, overgrazing. I know you were thinking about retiring. I know when Ma went you threw yourself right back into work. I know you have doubts about me taking over. I know why.

But Pa, I know farming like we do doesn't bring in as much money as it used to. I know the economy's bad. I know we're running in drought conditions. I know it'll continue that way.

Pa, I know you don't like the idea of developers here, but this town has real potential as a tourist site. I know tourists bring money. I know we really need money. I know the developers want to put in a hotel here. I know how much they'll pay.

Pa, I know you're stuck on the old ways, but the world is changing.

Pa, we really have a lot of land, we could sell a little.

Levi x Child!Eren x Reader- School Reunion
Levi sat stiffly on the edge of an uncomfortable seat made of plastic, his hands clenched together in his lap as his grey eyes watched his five-year-old son run around multiple couples as music echoed around the large hall of his old highschool, his son’s eyes gleaming with happiness as he let out childish laughter. Levi watched from the safety of the dark corner as he admired his son’s emerald coloured eyes, the colour sometimes making him question if Eren was really his child. His Mother did not- had not had such an entrancing green in her eyes, and Eren sure as hell did not get his eye colour from his Father. No matter, Levi lo

Papa Meta Knight
It was chaos. Black, swirling skies of doom and despair. Blood and rain seeped into the parched ground and ruined battleships lay in disarray. It was so horrible and devastating. So much pain. So much death. One by one, they all fell. All of his friends died in one single war against the monster that destroyed his world. He watched his world burn, just as he watched his friends fight and get slaughtered. He was alone now. The only one left…all alone… Alone. Then he saw it. The tall figure rise from the black horizon and loom over him like a menacing dark plague. This was it. He was going to die. The world around him imploded in
