Chapter Eleven: Beautiful Things
The sun was beginning to set across the Macalania Forest. The rich hues of red and orange painted in the sky were reflected in the lake, the colors burned like fire across the watery surface. Tidus, laid on his back, kept dipping his bare feet in and out of the water. Its been hours, he though. Where could she be?
He slid up to prop himself up on his elbows, the half-sun blazed brightly but within minutes it would be dark. The last time they met things had gone so well, what could have come up in the time they had been apart that would have caused her not to come? He had to think that she wanted to come, but was prevented somehow. That made him worry. He gathered himself up and stood to watch the last remnants of light slip beyond his view.
He wasnt going home, not until he figured out why Yuna didnt come. If he left now, he could make the last train to Gippals place. Maybe
Rest With MeRest With Me
Close your eyes
And wash away
A thousand years of pain
All your hate and anger
Where only shadows still remain
Please let go of your regret
Dont go on grieving all alone
I know you wish your vengeance
To sooth your weary soul
Driven by haunting memories
Desperation takes its toll
But now Im here with you
No reason to go on fighting on your own
If we only get this moment
Come and take my hand
Lets fade away together
And finally go home
There is no one left to hate
No more enemies to blame
We must look forward
We cannot change the past
So let me sing you a new song
And we can rest at last
Story of an AngelStory of an Angel
On the surface they'rea mirror
But inside their black & white
A tortured artist who lived with a broken heart
A guardian angel driven by violence
In his heart one kept a secret
That only death brought to life
No longer two
But one and a memory
A secret past and shadowed future
Can one survive on his own?
Driven by a ruthless existence
A race to the end of all he knew
The guardian angel lost his soul
Afraid to feel, afraid to be loved
That he might lose everything again
But in the dark a light shone through
A pure heart abandoned to a silent pain
Suffering secret evils behind closed doors
So he spread his wings and let her in
Dropping the barriers that poisoned his heart
In the light of their love it melted away the darkness
And in rescuing her
He saved himself
Promises Unfulfilled - FFXPromises Unfulfilled
She just stood there watching, it took all the strength from inside her frail body to manage even that simple task. She was still trying to comprehend what had just happened. He was leaving. That was the reality, but she just could not accept it. His back was to her, steadily walking away, but before he had turned away she knew what she saw in his eyes, the eyes she knew so well. She couldnt contain herself anymore and she just started to run to him.
Yuna! Kimahri yelled at her, but she did not listen, all she could see was him leaving, and she knew she had to do something.
At hearing the her name, he turned around and opened his arms to welcome her for one last embrace. She ran to him at full force, throwing herself into his arms, wanting to feel his embrace one again. All she wanted was to feel him, to touch him, to know in her heart that it couldnt be true, he wasnt just a dream. But her illusions faded as she passed right th

Chapter Ten: Reunion
Six thirty a.m.
Around four thirty she had just accepted that she wasn't going to be getting any sleep. Excitement was pulsing through her veins, and she couldn't wait for the day to begin. Yuna smiled, she normally was not a morning person but she couldn't help it now. The day had finally come. The previous five days had been torture. It's funny how as soon as you find someone, you cannot be sure how you ever got along without them. You seemed to have made it through somehow, but nothing could convince you to go back to the way things were.
Yuna wasn't stupid, she knew that what she was feeling was being heavily influenced by infatuation, but it was the possibility of more, the possibility that this is what she had been waiting for. It was that thought that made her heart flutter, that and the memory of his perfect smile.
She sat in front of her mirror and stared back at the reflection. She was all ready to go, whic

Chapter Nine: Homecoming
Hell be here soon enough love.
The lift-train is twenty minutes late. What could be holding it up so much? You know what; I bet that he had something to do with it.
Oh Shuyin dont be so paranoid, and please stop pacing. Youre making me dizzy.
He better not have gotten himself into any trouble, or so help me... Shuyin said, shaking his fist in the air.
Lenne stood up from the bench she was waiting on and walked over to Shuyin. She put a hand on his shoulder trying to calm him down. Hell be fine; it wasnt like he was gone for a very long time. He couldnt possibly get into that much trouble.
Shuyin raised an eyebrow as he faced his fiancé, You do know who we are talking about right? Tidus, my brother. You know, Tidus the terror of Zanarkand.
Lenne chuckled, You know youre the only one who calls him th

Chapter Eight: Thieves and Princes
For what seemed like an eternity all he could see was darkness, and all he could feel was a throbbing pain in his head. He wasnt really sure where he was, he could have been a number of different places, and not many of them were appealing to him. He wasnt even sure why he was in this much pain, but he was sure that whatever it was hadnt been an over-all pleasant experience.
Slowly as he opened his eyes to mere slits, the blurs started to take the shape of recognizable objects. He could see a table, the outlines of a window. He was sitting on something soft.
I think hes wakin up! said a familiar voice.
Yeah... I think so, said another.
I wish he would hurry up, a feminine voice whined, Im worried. We still dont know where she is!
He opened his eyes at the words. Who is she, he thought for a moment. Where t

Chapter Seven: Trouble in Paradise
The fire crackled red and orange, contrasting against the light and dark blue hues of Macalania Woods. Everyone was situated around the flames. They had returned a few hours ago from their second session of Choccobo riding lessons. This second time had gone much better than the first. Tidus hadnt fallen off nearly as much. His leg still hurt from when he had fallen off and landed on it. At least he wasnt the worst rider. Rikku took that prize with no contest.
When they had gotten back, they re-stoked the fire, got a couple of drinks and were now sitting around relaxing. Tidus was sitting fairly close to Yuna, not quite close enough to make it obvious to everyone, but it was close enough to gain him a couple of warning glares from Wakka.
Since that night by the spring they had been acting differently towards each other. There no longer existed awkwardness between them. In one of the few moments they

Chapter Six: Thank You
As the next few days past, Yuna could feel herself being drawn in by Tidus. She had reproved her feelings, and told herself that it was nothing more than a physical attraction to his obvious good looks. This worked for around five minutes but then it seemed that fate was intent on proving her wrong. They had many separate chances to speak with one another due to how close their quarters were, living in one house and all. She was surprised to find out how similar they were to each other. He would speak as freely as she assumed he could, without giving any details in which to incriminate him with. He never told her anything about Zanarkand, but really, she wasnt expecting him to. It didnt even bother her really. She guessed it was because she already knew the truth, so she wasnt curious. It worried her though, how Auron had so quickly recognized him, and from so far away. Being in Bevelle had presented prob
Yes, Sir (Drunk!Levi x Reader)
A night in New York City. Supposedly the proud parent of romantic encounters around the numerous landmarks, gigantic blow out parties in the hottest night clubs, and the ritziest people found on every high end block.
Now, if someone could explain how that translated to you dragging a drunken Mr. Ackerman home, that would be just lovely.
Beginnings are the best place to start things, so let's roll back a few hours. The annual company bash was in full swing, the windows of the office's lobby reverberating with the noise. You weren't sure if a single coworker was sober outside yourself. Even the sullen Mikasa had a pink tint to her cheeks, and the company's President, Erwin, looked a bit tipsy.
The law-firm of Rose, Sina, and Maria were celebrating their fifth year of being an economic empire. The money couldn't be stopped from rolling in, and said circumstances meant bonuses. Everyone had a reason to celebrate the extra change in their pockets. You had planned for the event for an extens
Please Take Me Home - Sebastian x Neko! Reader
Living on the streets was not easy.
There was murderers, rapists, and not to mention the God-awful drunks that threw glass bottles at you.
But one could guess such was the life of a cat. A cat in Victoria England.
You gazed at your surroundings in disgust. Being in the alley of a bar was gross. You couldn't believe this actually happened to you.
One day you were taking a stroll in the park and lightly bumped into a man in a cloak. In surprise he yelled "Abracadabra" and poof! Your life as a human was over.
You growled bitterly recalling that awful memory. 'That stupid man! If only I scratched him with my claws maybe he would have turned me back...'
Sadly that wasn't the case because you ran away in disbelief to what just happened. You ran and and ran. You ran until your paws were bleeding. Until your breaths became diminished to hurried pants. Until exhaustion overtook your tiny body and made you succumb to a nightmarish sleep.
Coming out of that

Her Butler, Proud
It was nearing twilight as the last fractals of light disappeared into the nighttime clouds of a periwinkle sky. Carriages clattered noisily through the streets of London chauffeuring the elite of society to the nearest theaters and other forms of entertainment.
From the depths of the large city a single stately house sat in mild splendor, with warm light wafting through large clear-cut windows. From within the home, a couple finished dressing to the nines and made their way down to the entryway where their Butler awaited to help them into their coats.
The Master of the house- a nearly twenty-five year old Ciel Phantomhive- regally shrugged into his overcoat, before holding out his arm to his wife. With an intelligent light blue eye the man gazed at her, before once more returning his attention to the statuesque figure dressed in black.

Levi x Reader x Rivaille |Host Club| AUYou felt your eyebrow twitch as Levi and Rivaille both stare at you, arms crossed. They both sighed at the same time.
"(Name), we would like..." Levi began.
"...That stuff you commoners call instant coffee." Rivaille finished, and you frowned.
"Why can't you get it yourself?" You grumble. Levi and Rivaille both smirked.
"Well, someone broke an expensive vase." Levi teased, making you glare daggers at him.
"In all honesty it didn't even look that expensive." You defensively say.
"Hm, well, too bad isn't it?" Rivaille says, making you sigh.
"Do I really have to? This couch is really comfy," You say, motioning to the leather couch you were plopped on. They both shake their heads. You look away frowning.
"Either that, or you can yell." Levi suggests, making you look back at him confused.
"What?" You deadpan.
"You seem like the kind of person that hides their actual rage, besides you blatant sarcasm. If you yell, it'd be quite entertaining, don't you think Levi?" Rivaille asks, as Levi nods
Hitman - Assassin!Levi x Reader
“Levi, we’ve received some new information.”
The renowned assassin waited obediently for his orders that were to come. After all, an assassin was nothing more than a tool, and no one wanted a tool that talked freely. If he overstepped his boundaries he was certain another of his kind would be sent to wipe him out – or several, if they were smart.
He looked toward the shadowed figure folding his arms over the desk. “There’s a woman currently hiding out in Japan. [First] [Last] her name is. We’ve gotten word that she’s… got her hands on some government level intelligence.” He interlaced his meaty fingers together and leaned into them. “I need you to take her out, remove the information wherever she’s stored it.”
Levi stared blankly at the pudgy man before him. “How do you know she’s got information?”
“Ah, she told us. Directly. She thought she was being smart, but we managed to track her
Bucky x Reader Don't Play
“Ohhh how long has it been since we’ve been to the beach??” (Name) cried, stretching her tired limbs with every emphasis. Finally, they were all at the beach. The most magical, relaxing and vacation perfect place they could think of, and it was all thanks to (Name).
Clad in only a bikini and a long shirt as a cover-up, (Name) had then convinced Fury to give all the Avengers a decent vacation. And Bucky Barnes had been included because 1) She had a massive crush on the man and 2) Because she knew he needed the break more than anyone else.
Since joining SHIELD, he’d had it rough. All the other agents and personnel were wary of him thanks to his past as the Winter Soldier, which basically meant no one really trusted or liked him aside from Steve and (Name), and the Avengers more or less since she’d convinced them that he was a decent guy, for the most part.
And here they all were, ready to kick back at the beach in
2P!FACE x Child!Reader - Catch Me If You Can
You were at your room, completely feeling bored since everyone's busy. That's when you thought that they'll play with you by force if you do so. So you entered their rooms and took their t-shirt that has their flag pattern on them.
Oliver looked at you you, only to see you wearing his Britain flag patterned t-shirt.
"Oh no, poppet! I'm still wearing that!" Oliver said as he walks towards you but you quickly ran away.
"Catch me if you can!"
Your father chased you around the house for no more than two and a half hours but you really had fun. Oliver took a break from the chase and you did your victory dance.
Allen turned away from the t.v, only to see you wearing his American flag patterned t-shirt.
"I was looking all over for that! Thank for finding it doll." Right before Allen could even come near you, you ran away.
"Catch me if you can!"
The chase lasted for a minute, having Allen tripped over which game him a nosebleed.
First Glance - Levi x Reader
You sat on the grassy field beneath, your face turned ahead but your eyes not really looking at anything in particular. You felt the presence of a man beside you – the same man you had given your heart to.
Levi – it was a beautiful name. You loved how it sounded, whether it rolled off your tongue or his. It was simple, not a tongue twister like many other names you’d heard, no. Levi was short and sweet – just like the man who the name belonged to, you assumed.
You smiled a little to yourself. Knowing he was there made you feel safe, even a little flustered. But there had been something you always wanted to know about him – something you’d never figured out, something that had been hounding your mind for years.
He spoke up; breaking the silent air between you two. His voice filled your ears. “Hey, [First], are you feeling okay? You’re looking a little flushed.”
Your smile grew wider. You loved how protective he was of you. He w

All That Jazz
Levi x Reader [AU]
Ah, Friday night. You're hectic week at work was finally coming to a close, and you had tonight to yourself. Some of your friends would go to the club, others would stay home and watch tv, but you had better plans. You were going to go to your favorite coffee shop tonight and watch the Friday night entertainment. By entertainment, you meant the incredibly hot jazz guitarist that plays there every Friday night, Levi.
Levi wasn't like the other musicians that played at your coffee shop. Nothing he played was ever planned or repetitive, that's just the way jazz was. Improvisation. It was free, creative, and one of your favorite things to listen to. Sometimes he would get a little daring and play some blues or jazz fusion as well, which was even crazier. You would watch him play his beautiful music, drink coffee or tea, give him a generous tip, and once he was done at 11:00 you would head home. Lately though, more and more girls had started
None Shall Pass'None Shall Pass'
Directly in their path
His blade raised high
Strong and unyielding he stands
A pillar of strength
Illuminated by the force
Flowing through his every muscle
As they approach he firmly says
'None shall pass'
They keep coming
One after the next
Thousands of warriors
Ever ready to send him to his fate
And yet he holds fast
'None shall pass'
Time fades into eternity
Any moment could be his last
But this right here
This was who he was
Standing in the corridor of his destiny
Everything leading up to this
Never faltering, never wavering
'None shall pass'
The end or the beginning
It makes no difference to him
He is both here and nowhere
The energy passing through him
It has become him
Fully aware and yet distant
He knows only his purpose
'None shall pass'
As his burning light fades away
He does not fail
As his breath escapes his lips
Forever burning in his lungs
A single thought takes him away
Becoming one with the force
He burns the words li
