Rewind Please Ch 18“Egbert, are you ready?” Karkat asks softly, leaning against the doorway behind you.
“Yeah, just a second,” you rasp, wiping at your eyes again.
Sliding your glasses back onto your nose, you let your eyes focus on the mirror in front of you. This past year should have aged you beyond your years. Even at about seven Alternian solar sweeps, or seventeen Earth years, you can see the the bags under Karkat’s eyes with painful clarity. In the privacy of your bedroom, he assured you that his natural life span will probably exceed even Feferi’s, but you’d never know it by looking at him. You, however, look like you’re in your prime. Immortality does have its perks, you suppose.
“Come on, John,” Karkat prods, pulling you out of your daze with a hand on your shoulder.
With a sigh, you pull your hood up and follow him out of the apartment the two of you share. The nice old woman who lives next door drops her newspaper when she sees you d
Amy Destiny MitchellAmy grows up in a crowded house with numerous siblings. Despite the crowded conditions and common fights, Amy cares for her half-brothers and half-sisters. Her mother is unmarried and all of her children have a different father (with the exception of the twins, Riley and David), but there is a man that lives with them and that all of the children call “Dad.” He’s the only one who seems to not be anyone’s actually father. Growing up, her biggest dream is to be a proper mother. When she is 13, Amy begins to develop her abilities as a supernatural. Her eyes, which are already an oddly bright shade of blue, begin to lighten and brighten as she grows more skilled. Abnormally light, bright blue eyes mark her as a “static shifter,” or a shapeshifter that has a visible trait that makes them identifiable. This is due to having human genes mixed with shapeshifter genes and is only found in impure shifters. As she spends most of her time in the “real worl
Rewind Please Ch 17The group filters out and starts moving with an intensity that you haven’t seen since Bec Noir. Everyone is working together as if they’re part of the same machine. One of the god tiers is by the closet passing clothes back to everyone else. Those that haven’t reached god tier yet are helping each other with various outfits. Terezi is getting a bit of help from Sollux with the gloves of her old FLARP costume. Feferi is fussing over the god tiers, helping them shimmy into hoods and get wings situated. Out of nowhere, a soft blue bag is thrown over your head. It takes a moment of panicked struggling for you to realize that it’s your hood.
“Suit up, windy boy,” Karkat smiles, standing behind you in his normal clothes.
Actually, not quite. His shirt is less baggy and pulled tightly against his wrists, making them appear even smaller than they are. Instead of the usual baggy jeans, he’s wearing something that looks almost like grey pajama bottoms. T

Rewind Please Ch 15Your name is John Egbert and it has been about three weeks since you and Dave Strider stopped talking. You don’t care about that anymore, or at least you’re doing your best to pretend you don’t. Dave wasn’t an essential cornerstone in your life or anything, right? Things have been too distracting for you to care, anyway, because while its been something around three weeks since you last spoke to Dave Strider, it’s been a week and a half since Karkat left.
CA: hey john ivve got some bad newws

Long DistanceGod damn it, where is that boy? It’s a full thirty minutes and counting past when he should have been home. What if something happened to him? He’s not in the best part of town, maybe someone jumped him or something? What if someone tried to rob the place that he works at? No, he works at a pizza delivery place. Well, maybe someone he delivered to tried to rob him. What if they kidnapped him and are holding him for ransom? I don’t have enough money to pay.
Oh thank god.
“There he is! Sorry, Jade, but I’ve got to go now.”
“No problem, Rose! Tell Dave I said hi!”
“Sure thing. Have a safe flight and say hello to John for me.”
“Okay! Good night!”
Within moments of hanging up with Jade, I’m getting called by a certain blond idiot.
“Hey!” he grins when I pick up, waving into the webcam.
“It’s been too long, Strider,” I deadpan, glancing at the clock. “You’re late.”
Rewind Please Ch 14The basement is definitely more crowded now, but there's a light in everyone's eyes that you've never seen before. An undertone of excitement seems to buzz within the group. A dim chatter fills the concrete room and brings a smile to your lips. Everyone sounds full of hope now; maybe they'll be able to carry that into the fight. You wave your hand uncertainly, if not a little awkwardly, and slowly the heads turn to you.
"We need to decide what to do," you announce, smile firmly in place. "If anyone has an idea, just shout it out and we can figure out how to move from there."
Perhaps not, you think as you watch everyone glance around. There's no confidence in their eyes now and the light from before is fading fast. Just when you're about to start asking dumb questions to poke at their brains - questions that would most likely accomplish nothing but making you look like an idiot - heavy footsteps sound on the stairs. Of course, by heavy you mean manly and by manly you mean your dad's. He
Rewind Please Ch 13The house seems almost eerie, much like it did on stormy nights back in your early childhood. The light lands on the floor in lines, shining through the blinds persistently. Part of you thinks for a moment that this has to all be a dream. You'll walk into the kitchen and be assaulted with yet another stack of cakes. After a moment of father-son strife, your dad will give you a tight hug while you tell him all about your terrifying nightmare. A pressure in your hand brings you back to reality. Without realizing it, you'd stopped at the entrance to the kitchen.
"Come on, John. You can't avoid it forever," Karkat speaks softly, more gentle than he ever was in the game.
You nod wordlessly and walk through the empty kitchen and into the utility room. The doors to the basement are open already. Karkat starts down ahead of you, letting go of your hand so that you can turn around to close the doors behind you. The stairs creak, warped from the constant dampness in the basement, and everyone kn
Rewind Please Ch 12Your name is John Egbert and you're too busy snogging the hell out of your best troll friend to notice that your best non-troll friend has walked in. Karkat moves a hand to your hair, claws tapping against your skull and making you shiver, and you raise your other hand to his face. At that, Dave decides to make his presence known.
"What the fuck?" he asks, startling you both. "Seriously John, we have a lot more important things to do right now than reconsider our sexualities."
You can feel your face growing hot. When you kissed Karkat you weren't really thinking, let alone thinking about whether or not it was a good time for this. Now you're remembering just how bad of a time it is. You can feel Dave's glare through his shades.
"Come on, Egbert, you're supposed to be doing shit," Dave tells you, motioning toward the kitchen.
Karkat shifts, staring up at you with panic flaring in his wide eyes. Without a hint of regret, you wish silently that Dave had stayed in the kitchen. After a mome

After breakfast Natalia lead (Name) to a room in the basement. The room is painted a light blue with various weapons, shields and armor around the room. What caught (Name) eye ere four pair of military uniform but before she could go look at them she was dragged across the room. (Name) watches as Natalia pulls out a practice dummy. The dummy looks like a crude rag doll with blond hair and light violet eyes. (Name) stares at it for a minute before she feels something being pressed into her hand. (Name) looks down to see Natalia giving her a small dagger. She takes it and examines it. It is slightly larger than her hand with a polished wood hilt and shiny silver blade.
“I saw many weapons in Japan nut nothing like this, it’s so small”
“It’s a dagger” Natalia says bluntly “I want you to stab the dummy with it”

Also, Reader-chan will play the clarinet. Apologies to anyone reading who does not play clarinet, but look on the bright side: You'll be clarinet buddies with Armin and Marco~!]
Chapter One: Introductions
My face flushed involuntarily as I quickly walked toward the many rows of fold-out chairs. I kept my eyes on the floor when my rear hit the chair at the end of the back row, and I tried my best to block out the loud chatter coming from almost every other mouth in the room. I was greatly outnumbered by strangers, what looked to be over a hundred other people seated in the giant rectangular formation of chairs set out at the front of the room.
I allowed my eyes to scan the room and its inhabitants. A man sat patiently at the front facing the crowd of people. I recognized him. He was Erwin Smith, the band director, the man for whom I had auditioned. He was very

Warning. This is not a happy story.
“I want a divorce.” His voice was cool and sharp, calming almost, as if the way those four words rolled off of his tongue without a care in the world, no sense of reluctance in them in the least. The words of anti that were soon to erupt from my own caverns held silent, my lips pushed tightly together in pure disbelief. I knew this was going to happen but…not this soon, not now. The tall man sat up from our love seat, the clink of his boots bruised against the carpeted floors; ignoring my face as if I didn’t exist. I heard the door slam, awaking me from my state of being before running to the door after him, the only thing in his wake was the entryway.
“Tim!” I was given no response aside from a look that I’d grown to
The Bank Job and Night Attack
"There you go miss, you've worked hard all day and so take the rest of the day off." A large man wearing a black ski mask told a young woman along with a bunch of other young women who all wore a blue bank outfit along with dark or nude tights and stockings and some still wore their high heel blue shoes while others lost theirs in a struggle.
They were all lined up behind the cashier counter, brown packing tape was wrapped around their upper bodies and wrists along with their ankles as several strips kept them gagged. They struggled and grunted on the floor as three males and their female boss was in the middle of robbing the bank they were in.
"Mfpmfffmfm!" They all grunted fearfully looking scared as the vice bank manager was just as scared and left unbound as she was pushed towards the vault.
"Open it, we don't want any of your employees getting hurt." The boss said with a smile as the vice manger stuttered out some words.
"I-I-I don't k-know how-"
"Ah ah ah, don't finish that sente
Mouse in the House: Chapter 1Corin shook nervously as he scampered through the crack in the wall. Corin was coverd in messy, grey fur. He had a mess of brown hear on his head, and big, golden eyes. A belt with tiny, makeshift tools was wrapped around his waist. He pushed a wheeled, wooden board ahead of himself, upon which sat a little rope. The rope was made from fishing wile, while the wheels were made of beads. Corin was followed by his brother Howey, who ran alongside him. They were followed by a few more of their fellow scavengers.
"Remember the plan." Howey said. "We sneak into the kitchen, grap some food, put it in the tray, and rush out.
"I know, I know." Corin protested, scratching his big fluffy ear. "I heard you the first time."
Corin and his friends were a race known as Neeras. They were part human, and part mouse. But mostly mouse. They lived in a world of giant, talking animals. Neeras, unfortunately, weren't giants; they were about as small as a giant's toe. Sometimes even SMALLER. That meant they h

The day drifted along quickly and once the next morning came around, Marina and the boys spent the whole day with the daughters of Triton getting to know all of them better. Although Ariel spent most of her times on her own daydream, singing to herself, and swimming in circles like she was dancing, the sisters went on telling the gang all of their interests and hobbies.
As Marina did well in keeping her secret of really being a human with a disguise of a mermaid, the mer-sisters
Pluto X reader (One-shot)
You were walking And you were passing by the Phantomhive mansion when you were suddenly tackled you the ground. "HEY!" You cried as you hit the ground. Then you felt something licking your face. Opening your eyes you saw what looked like a boy licking you, which resulted in you blushing madly. "H-HEY, GET OFF!" You cried. "Why are you licking me?" The 'boy' continued to lick you. "Pluto!" A voice called. "Come here, Pluto!" The voice added. The 'boy' that was licking you got off of you and ran in the direction of the voice. You sat up and saw another boy.
"Sorry about Pluto." The other boy said. "He's really a dog, so he does that." You stared blankly, but then nodded. "My name is Finnian." The boy said. "I'm (Y/N)." You replied. Pluto went back over and tackled you again and resumed licking your face. Finnian sighed. "well, I tried to get him off of you, Miss (Y/N)." He said. You just giggled.
Pluto licked your face a few more times and then nuzzle
Attack on Titan x Reader - I'm in the Band (Ch. 2)Chapter Two: The First Step
A high-pitched whistle was blown in a quick, sharp burst, causing the people around me under the shade of the pavilion to venture out into the morning sunlight. Not wanting to seem like a black sheep, I fastened my Camelback around my shoulders and hurried onto the field. I spotted Marco holding up his hand and calling, “Clarinets, over here!”
There were a good twenty or so people in the section, all of which saving Armin and Marco being girls. Armin was going over a sheet of paper in a blue binder, and Marco was counting the members of the section. He stopped when his eyes fell on me, and he smiled and said, “Morning, _____,” then resumed counting.
“Looks like everyone’s here,” he said to Armin, who scribbled something down before putting away the paper and setting the binder on the ground.
“Today we’re just going to go over marching fundamentals,” said Armin. “I know you all probably know al
Alguna vez has oído esa frase muy popular de “LAS APARIENCIAS ENGAÑAN” ,bueno es verdad, pero también es mentira. Tal vez no te guste como eres y finges ser alguien falso, o tienes un mal día y finges que nada paso para no explicar por qué estas así, o todas esas veces en las que te preguntaron “Estas bien” y tu respondiste “si” cuando tú sabes que no es así. Dime cuantas veces no has ocultado tus lagrimas: en tu cuarto, en el baño o hasta en tus propios ojos… para que nadie se preocupe y piensen que estas perfectamente!!!! QUE ES UNO DE LOS MEJORES DIAS!!!!! Pues es mentira todas son apariencias y tu bien lo sabes, todos alguna vez hemos vivido eso, por razones personales o no. Bueno a mi me pasa eso todos los días, yo no soy real con nadie, ni siquiera conmigo misma, todos los días me veo al espejo y me digo “esta eres tu, todos creen que eres esta,, así que esta tienes q
3 -- LightThis light. It burns. I don't understand why because everyone always says that light is good. It doesn't feel good. It feels like pain. It shows me the truth of everything that I don't want to see. The scene of a murder is found in the daylight. The lonely child stands under the streetlight. The runaway teenager leaves by moonlight. Tearful wishes are made by starlight. So why does everyone say that light is so good? I think that it would be better if we were all bathed in darkness
