Star Fallen - Prologue - Thieves "I can't help but close my eyes for life
And dream a different ending
That when I wake, I won't be so exhausted
And I will stop with my pretending
That I'm fine, I'm fine if I can fool myself tonight
And my lie will drown out all of yours."
The silver lights of the Aether began to retreat far into the distance as the two people rode away, their horses running fast across the plains towards the forest that would provide better cover. Dark storm clouds began to circles around the silver half-moon in the sky as the news of the recent intruders' theft hit the Lord of the Aether's ears.
"So close," A woman shouted over the cold wind that was beginning to stir up "if we can make it into the forest, Notch can't find us and then we would be safe as we head back to the golden gates?"
The man beside her dropped his cloak hood to reveal ear-length and choppy brown hair with stern blue eyes. He glanced back at the wo

Text from Asami to Korra:
So, a little birdie told me that you had your own personal chauffeur over Fall Break.
The little blonde that I lift told me that she saw Mako driving you around town over Fall Break. What’s going on? I thought you two didn’t like each other?
Oh that. Well, at the beginning I had some car troubles and sort of begged Mako to drive me to my dance class. And then after I dropped it off at the shop, the mechanic said that it was worse than what we thought after doing a full check and I was carless for the rest of the break and Mako had a fully gassed up car and nothing to do.
Why did you take your car to the shop? I could’ve fixed it for you.
YOU WERE IN PANAMA!! >X(
Right… Sorry. I got you a new razorback. Don’t hate me. ^3^
What color is it?
Pink… But it’s neon pink and it says ‘Panama City’ on it in black graffiti.
Yay! Now that that’s over… I ge
TurnaboutInked Puppetry: Turnabout.
A week after the victory on Moebius, the Freedom Fighters had met up for breakfast at Chuck's diner, sitting around a table large enough for all but two of them. Nicole, not needing to eat, was working, and Emerl was with her, mostly out of his usual need to be by her side, but also, he felt, out of necessity- Nicole was currently highly unpopular with people, especially the specific group that made up Mina's fandom, and Emerl felt the need to be with her at all times.
Fiona's seat had been newly squeezed in, between Tails and Bunnie, and she was currently leaning on the shoulder of the former, while chatting with the latter between mouthfuls.
“How're you two this mornin', then?” Bunnie asked. She had less food than the others- the conversion of material fit for Mobian consumption into energy that her bionics could use was a slow process, meaning that, during downtime, she could survive on much smaller meals.
“We're good.” Fiona smiled
OCT Round 1 - P3Tobias spun to see Phasma’s fist remaining where Silver Wolf’s head had once be. Certainly not anywhere near being Alex now, but in the full hero-zone, Silver Wolf rubbed her chin and tried not to wince. Why had she not even seen that coming?!
“Phasma, what are you-?” Tobias was cut off by Luna issuing a rumbling growl deep from the recesses of her throat and making a leap at Phasma’s arm, teeth opening to meet his wrist. Wanting to prevent any conflict, Tobias wrapped his arms in a vice-like grip around the wolf’s legs and dug his heels into the sand. Heaving the wolf back was not easy. Luckily for the boy, Luna had not suspected her usual comrade’s interference and hesitated, giving him the chance to gain purchase,
“Luna, come on, we can’t-“
Both of them looked up sharply when a crack cut through the air from behind them, paused in their awkward half-wrestle to crane their necks behind them, Luna’s ears darting upright
OCT Round 1 - P2“You know, if we were awake right now, I’d have to arrest you.”
Phasma looked at the boy with some incredulity. After spotting Tobias he had removed one of his fabric arm-bands before unravelling it to make some kind of half-assed mask, biting and tearing crude eye holes in the soft cotton. Horrible, shabby, but still gave him the right to use “Phasma” when his name was asked for.
“Though,” the boy went on, “despite being unconscious, maybe we’re not dreaming. Maybe. It’s all pretty vivid if you ask me. I’ve dreamt a lot, I know these things.”
Phasma gave a long, slow look at the kid who swaggered a few steps ahead of him to the right, raising his brows,
“This,” the thief stated blatantly, “is all insane.” He emphasised just how insane it was by waving his hands in the air exasperatedly.
Tobias pressed his lips together, pausing as he thought he spotted movement ahead, squinting,
Intro to a new lifeIt was a sunny, beautiful, Monday morning, the worst kind of day. I was walking to school with my best friend, my only friend really, Hope. She was being very gleeful as always, ranting about her parents and siblings or whatever, "So the night before, I had... are you even listening to me, Sammy?" she asked, "huh? oh, yeah, I-I'm listening", I said that I was, but I really wasn't, I was thinking about how, tonight, I was going to run away into the woods, ditching this hell hole called civilization. I was thinking about how my grandfather would act, probably with no emotion, how he acted with everything I did, heartless bastard. I was thinking about about how sad Hope might be. Hope is the only thing that has kept me from going into the woods for years now. Now enough about my sob story, lets talk more about Samuel McCalister Sparks the third, or you can just call me Sammy if you want, though it's not like you would be talking to anytime soon, I'm a damn character in a story.
When the Morning Breaks Us- Chapter 3
The two figures ran across and through the vast landscape, a mixture of hands and shoes and misted breath. Ciaran was too fast for Sadie; he was almost a minute ahead of her. She flailed her arms as she tried to pick up speed, but he seemed to be powered by an electric motor. Sadie often lost sight of him; he dodged behind trees or just went further ahead. She sprinted at full pelt, her breath short.
Ciaran began to scale up a ridge, on all fours again, giving Sadie an opportunity to catch up.
His nails dug into the earth, sending dirt and tiny rocks into Sadie's face below.
"Hey!" She spluttered, sending the debris tumbling to the ground.
Her hand reached upward, grabbing Ciaran's heel. The silver ring on her finger dug into the leather of his boots. She beamed at him, thinking she had victory.
He glanced sideways at her- a look filled with cunning- and shook his leg, managing to wriggle free of her grasp. He made a triumphant whooping c
THU: OCT Round 1 - P1The feeling that he was floating was both a comforting sensation and a worrying one.
The source of the comfort was easy to pinpoint. Tobias could feel the warm water lapping at the edges of his body, pleasant and soft like velvet, his back filled with a heat that seemed to radiate to his very extremities and out through his fingertips like sunbeams. The air above the water, the side that greeted his gently smiling face, was heady but not clawing or humid. Rather, it held that perfect level of ambiance. The boy’s limbs felt like jelly and he was positive that he could happily lie there for the rest of eternity.
The worry was a lot harder to place. He wanted to stay, but he couldn't. He couldn't because that worried feeling continued to insistently poke around at the back of his mind until his head almost throbbed. He trailed his fingers in the water, registering the reddish hue of the inside of his eyelids. Why should he be worried? He was going to stay here forever where it was w
Protectors - TeaserChapter 1 – No believers, no help
It was a dark and stormy night. Adam sat in his room, listening to his favourite music. The wind howled outside and the raindrops splashed on his windows like little bombs. His black hair with the red stripe in it was hanging loosely infront of Adams eyes as he hung his head low. He wore his usual black shirt with a skull on it and blue jeans. He jerked his head up as his radio suddenly had a slight static which didn’t fit in the music which was playing. The static got louder until it completely replaced the music. Adam sat on his bed with wide open eyes, staring at his small radio. He tensed up as he heard something else in the loud howling wind against his windows. The boy stood up and slowly walked to one of his window which was facing the street down below. He had no fear of burglars since his room was on the second floor which gave him the opportunity to look around his house. He saw nothing suspicious but a little girl walking

what love is not.it was a s l o p p y first kiss where
my drunk lips fumbled against yours.
the dull thwack of my heart,
locked behind curved ribs
cleared my groggy brain,
clouded with lustful premonitions.
it was an e l e c t r i f y i n g first kiss where
you entwined your hands in my hair.
your mouth encompassed mine and
my breath became lost in the steady
of your chest.
it was a s h y first kiss where
i pulled away before you could explore.
your tongue grazed my teeth,
searching for a way past the ivory gates.
i dug my finger into the stubble along your jaw,
my nail lulling your carnal desires.
it was my first kiss with you.
