HearthfireMy body groans with weakness; it has been nearly three days since I have eaten. Thank the Fates, I was forced to flee during the hearthfire season. While the deep snowfall has made travel difficult and rendered food scarce, it has also ensured that my waterskins remain full. Had I been chased out of Hewden in the opendoor, I may not have been Fated to subsist so long. Nevertheless, I fear my journey is drawing near to its end. If I cannot locate food before next moonrise, the Fates will surely reclaim me.
This ancient forest will serve as a better place than most for that. The trees here are old and frail, so there is little reason for any Hewdian to traverse it. Thus, they will never be granted the satisfaction of knowing the Fates have retaken me; my body will remain here, essenseless, until warmer times return to take it back into the ground. I pause to survey the surrounding portion of the forest. In the distance, I can see the exposed roots of a long-dead oak. They appear to rise
Not Your CanvasStupid, stupid steel--always in my head
Drawing pictures on my brain
of pictures it wants to draw on me.
Get the fuck out.
You are not the artist; I am not your canvas.
Ashes to AshesI am a pile of ash
Burning briefly as a phoenix
Before finding myself
Reborn, through flames
A pile of ash once more
AuthorshipPeople attempt to glorify authorship. So often you find writers proclaiming, "It feels so good to write again! It's been too long!" And in some circumstances, they're right. When you craft elaborate fictions entirely from your mind, it may be enjoyable (whether the thrill comes from creation or sharing), but that is not true writing.
True authorship is written in red from a silver pen--a pen that is first driven into the author's chest to draw ink from their still-beating heart. When it is completed, the author lies still on the floor, all they are poured into the words they penned.
True authorship is a curse; true authorship is Hell.
Till the World Got Us FallinSo they were wrong. All those crazies thinking they could predict the end of the world, they didn't know anything. According to their claims, the end of the world was in precisely twenty-three days. Obviously, they were wrong, because this was the end of the world.
Darryl was dumbfounded. For once, he had been confident in their predicitions, but now he had no idea what to do. All around him people were screaming and running in every direction. To where, he had no earthly idea. If the world was ending, what use was running? Better to spend these final moments...doing what? What was worth doing with the end so close?
Finally, it hit him--the one thing he had heard over and over to do in a time like this. Countless songs proclaimed it.
The world was ending; it was the last night of his life.
And so he danced.
You're Ridic"And here. We. Go."
"Can you please stop saying that like the Joker?"
"I'm fairly certain that I cannot."
"Jake, that's ridiculous. Just stop."
"Um, excuse me?"
"You're ridic. You. Are. Ridiculous."
"Ugh. I regret ever shortening a word around you."
"Whatever. I've about had it with your antics today. You're driving me crazy."
"Do you want me to lose it right now?"
"I want to be the very best."
"The best at what, Jake? Making people hate you? Ticking people off? Being an immature, annoying idiot?!"
"Like no one ever was."
"Just answer the freaking question."
"To catch them is my real test."
"What? What are you talking about?"
"To train them is my cause!"
"Is that th--"
"I will travel across the lands, searching far and wide."
"Are you singi--"
"Each Pokémon to understand the power that's inside!"
"Yep. Pokémon theme song. Yet again."
"Pokémon! Gotta' catch 'em. It's you and me!"
"You sing this song ev--"
"I know it's my destiny!"
Phantom SpiderYet again, Phillip was up at two in the morning, aimlessly flipping through channels. Thousands of channels and never a thing to watch. How that was possible was something he would never understand. Inevitably, when he did find something worth watching, he found about a hundred things all on at the same time. The whole system was irking enough that Phil decided to be done with it alltogether, but that decision fell apart quickly when he tried to actually go through with it. So, regardless of how it annoyed him, he kept his myriad of channels and continued his routine of searching for something he could stand to watch.
Phil knew he should just go to sleep, but knowing that had never changed his odd sleep habits. Instead, he finally settled on watching a documentary about arachnids. He was pretty sure he had seen three others like it before, but it was the best option he could find.
After watching countless spiders bind their helpless prey in webs, Phil could feel the miniscule footsteps

"...And for once, I thought you would be staying with me.."
"Cut! That's a wrap! Great job, everybody!"
Levi sighed as he got up from his kneeling positing, extending a hand to his co-host, Historia Reiss. She nodded a small 'thank you' as she dusted herself off and made her way toward her dressing room. Levi gave the crew their acknowledgment, walking back to his dressing room as well.
"Great job, Shorty! That was an impressive scene you did back there, and in only one take!"
"Yeah well, it would have been two if you hadn't sneezed right in the middle of it."
Hanji Zoe, which was also Levi's manager, was walking beside him as they were walking through the studio's hall. Once Levi entered his dressing room, he groaned tiredly as he sat in his chair with his name on the back of it. He looked at his phone, the lock screen blank as ever. But, if unlocked, his home screen shown his current wife in the background playing with some puppies. His lips slightly twitched up
2P!France x Child!Reader - Bank Robbers
"Stay here. I'll be back." Francois said before going into the bank.
You were sitting on the backseat of his car, which of course bored you. Knowing that it won't take long, you hop on the driver's seat and started to pretend that your driving until the backseat door open and two men entered.
"Drive! Now!" one of the men yelled.
"I-I don't know how to drive! I'm just five!" you replied.
The men paused and looked at the driver's seat to find you staring at them.
Right after they open the door to get, your uncle pointed a gun at them.
"Leave the money and I won't shoot you two." Francois said.
After his words, one of the men got shot in the head.
Francois turned to look at you.
You were holding a gun, staring at the man you just shot with wide eyes, "Oops..."
Francois sighed before shooting the other man. He then threw the two men out of his car and have you sit on his lap while driving back home.
"Uncle Francois. Who are those men?" you asked.
"Bank robbers." he replied.
"Why did you ta
Life's Joy- (Daddy!Levi x Mommy!Reader) 
“B-but daddy, p-please, we need you to protect u-us what if the t-t-titan c-c-comes and e-eats us?” Levi demounts his horse, ushering for his concerned counterparts to move on ahead. “Aunt Hanji” tries to send words of encouragement from afar, but Levi’s glare was enough to sew her lips shut. His eyes trail over to Isabel, thousands of curses aiming at the sky when he saw his daughter’s tear laden eyes.
He used not care so much until he had a little girl to take care of. One who’s eyes held the wonders of the world, one who’s heart was as innocent as the bud of a rose. He crouches in front of her trembling body, concentrating on the way she picked at her nails.
Just like her mother.
Speaking of that, you were a little ways behind the two, your arms folded. Actually you were still quite bitter about Levi getting Erwin to forbid you from the expedition, so you were even more so
Massage Envy - Massager!Levi x Reader
You groaned as you stopped your continuous typing, stopping to lay back in your chair and rub the back of your neck tiredly. You sighed as you looked at what you had so far and realized that you only had a few more left to finish for your transcript. There was knocking on your door and you looked up from your lap.
"Hey, [ f/n ]! How you doing so far on your work?"
Hanji came inside your office, looking at you with a bright smile. You smiled tiredly as you sat up straighter in your seat, looking at your brown haired friend. She sat on your couch and crossed her leg over the other as she sat there comfortably.
"I'm almost done with my work and then I'll b--"
"Don't go to where ever you were going! We will go out somewhere!"
You blinked at her sudden eagerness and tilted your head confused. Hanji suddenly got up from her seat to sit in front of your desk, her eyes filled with excitement. You continued to look at her, feeling a bit worried on what she's going to bring
Salty (Levi x Reader)
"This is it, huh," Levi mutters to himself, gaze fixated on the heavenly sight bestowed before him. Untouched golden sand covers the floor as far as his eyes can see, the sound of waves crashing against the shore soothing and calming. A gentle sea breeze rustles through his hair.
'Salty,' he realizes, taking in the scent. A loud yell snaps him out of his trance, and he turns around, glaring. Hanji comes running to the waves, letting out joyful laughter. They splash about in the water, something that Armin described as the 'ocean'. Eventually, the others near the shore, bright smiles on all their faces.
"Levi," a soft voice calls out. Your hand brushes his, a smile tugging at the corners of your lips. "Don't just stand there, stupid," you snicker, "have some fun," and you walk towards your comrades, chuckling at the expressions on their faces. Levi takes off his boots and carefully steps onto the sand.
Seven Minutes in Heaven - AU!Jean x Reader
Standing awkwardly in your broom closet wasn’t exactly how you imagined your birthday playing out, but nonetheless that’s exactly what was happening.
You waited for an ungodly amount of time for the person who was supposed to be making out with you right now. Finally, you could take it no more and pressed your ear against the door to listen in on what was happening outside. Your hearing wasn’t all that great, and you could only make out muffled mumbles on what was being said.
You overheard someone talking about Obama on a skateboard but you thought the notion was so ludicrous that clearly you heard it wrong.
Leaning back against the wall, you heaved a deep sigh and prayed whoever was going to show up would do so while you were still twenty-one.
Luckily, the gods heard your prayer and lo and behold a particular horse-faced human revealed himself. He seemed somewhat flustered at the notion of spending seven minutes in the closet with you, but regardless he stepped insid
2P!FACE x Child!Reader - Frere Jacques
"Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques,
Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines
Ding dang dong, ding dang dong~!" you sang.
You were at your room, jumping on your bed as you sang ones more.
"Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques,
Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines
Ding dang dong, ding dang dong~!"
"Poppet?" the door opened as you saw Oliver, Matthieu and Allen enter. Francois was behind them.
"Who taught you that song?" Allen asked.
"No one~! I heard uncle Francois sing this song while he's at shower~!" you replied.
Oliver ran towards you and hugged you, telling how you sang so cute.
Matthieu and Allen looked at Francois, waiting for his responds.
2P!FACE x Child!Reader - Little Boat On The Sea
You were laughing hard when Allen and Matthieu came downstairs wearing sailor clothes. You hold your camera ready to video them.
The thing is that they're not drunk. They're only doing this because they lost your favourite doll and you couldn't stop crying.
"Are you going to record this?" Allen asked, feeling miserable.
"1, 2, 3, Go!"
"Now the people they were so bad
That the Lord made the rain come down
And he washed away the bad cities
And he washed away the bad towns
And all of the people drowned!" Allen sang, which mad you laugh quietly.
"With the animals it was different
Though some of them drowned, too
The others were just poor animals
And they didn't know what to do!
So..." Matthieu sang.
You hold a paper boat on the edge of the camera to make it look like it's there.
"We built a little boat
As cut as it could be
And we put all the animals two by two
In my little boat on the sea.
The moo-cows went..." The two sang.
"Moo! Moo!" Allen sang.
"The piggies went...

"Papa, Papa look! Mama's on TV!"
Levi was currently coming from the kitchen when he over heard his son excitedly mention his mother on the large flat screen TV. He looked, noticing that you were presented on the TV show: Dancing with the Stars. Levi growled as you were dancing swing with the man who was presented as Reiner Braun who was famous for his appearances on dance movies and such. Levi continued to glare at the TV, watching as you had a smile on your face and Reiner was holding your body so freely. Eren looked away from the screen to look at his father, feeling the dark aura in the air.
"Horseface! Papa is getting angry again!"
"Young Master, I thought I told you to stop calling me that.."
"Hurry and get Papa some tea! I think he's going to blow!"
Jean sighed as scurried over to the kitchen, immediately making Levi's tea to help him calm down his nerves. Eren looked at the TV again, noticing that you and Reiner got a pretty high score for the dance per
Pallet Evening NewsApril Hawthorne was born in late September, which put her just outside the cut off date to being her adventure alongside her friends, Julia Linderman and Nina Pike. This meant she was the rare eleven-year-old in the following year's group of hopefuls. April began her journey with a squirtle, but always dreamed of training a weepinbell, a jolteon and a pikachu to perform in pokémon contests, because her favorite color was yellow.
Alongside April were 10-year-old twin brothers Blaine and Brock Richards, named after the late Kanto gym leaders. These young boys grew up constantly scuffling and each was determined to best the other in a challenge to become the next official Pokémon Indigo League Champion. Blaine, true to his name, selected a charmander as his first partner, and Brock set out with an eevee by his side that he has rescued and nursed back to health when he was only seven.
These three children set off on their journeys almost two months ago. None of their parents had
