"Sephiroth, Sephiroth, Sephiroth!" a loud voice called through the thick, closed door and mercilessly shattered the previous peaceful silence in the general's office.
The silver haired man ignored his SIC with the weak hope it would make him go away faster. It never did before, but as the saying goes:
'The hope dies last'.
And maybe, if he was really really quiet and didn't make a sound, maybe the puppy would think no one is in here, and would leave to find someone else to distract and annoy with whatever has him e

A raven teenager flopped into the rassy hillside, dissapointed in his actions and angry at the warking chocobo infront of him. As many times as he tried, that chocobo always got away from him! Every single freaking time! The chocobo "warked" again before fluttering its wings at it's sides, taunting the teenager more. Zack merley glared at the chocobo, hands behind him to cushion his head and his body was sprawled out otherwise. The raven wore a clean but stained white tee shirt and a pair of blue jeans with a black and white belt to match his brown boots. Why had he offered to help round up Chocobo's in the first place?!

Zack cuddled up against the huddled form in his bed, wrapping his arms around the form, the familiar feel of blond hair in his face...yet it wasn't hair. Zack wrinkled his nose at the awkward smell and opened his eyes to see another pair of big brown eyes accompanied with a beak and lots of feathers. A small "wark" came from the bird, earning a yelp from Zack, causing him to roll off the bed and onto the floor.
"Cloud!" His lover ran into the room wearing nothing but a pair of gray sweatpants, hay all in his hair from the barn outside.
"Whats that thing doing in the house, let alone in the bed?!"

That makes you walk when others has drop
And when the situation seems hopeless
You keep your faith and charges forward
We fight like it's the only thing we know
We fight with honor and courage
They can take away our lives
But our fighting spirit will live on
What is given can be easily taken away
But what we earn will be keep forever
Because we know great sacrifice
Must come before great glory
You will have to give it all you got
You will struggle and feel the pain
But when it is all said and done
You are the few the proud the Marines

England brought the white ceramic teacup to his lips and took in a satisfying sip of warm tea as Canada finally got to the point of his visit.
"So," he started quietly, stirring two sugar cubes into his own tea. "About the Governor General..." he paused, unsure if the words soon to follow would sound too harsh. Still, he needed to continue. He took the small spoon out from the cup and gently placed it on the saucer, his eyes still watching as the still swirling tea calmed down.
England eyed the shy Canada across the table as he set down his cup on the saucer. Another stall. "Yes? What about her

One day, Ezio hoped, he would be able to walk the streets of Venezia freely. How glorious it would be to not need the hood that shadowed his face.

The sounds of bickering faded until the words were mere sounds, floating like moths in the still night air. Leonardo felt his head clear a little as he went to the rampart. On this side, the wall was nearly flush with the side of the cliff, and the drop below him was dizzying. If he leaned out a little, he could almost believe that he was hovering in midair above the moonlit fields.
"I knew I saw you come this way." Ezio said behind him, disgruntled.
Leonardo hadn't heard him approach, though he wasn't surprised he'd been found. "Claudia was going to stop you," he said without looking a

Leonardo sent his friend a pitying glance, fanning himself with a piece of paper. The day was stifling hot, and they had retreated from the bright sun into the relative coolness of his workshop. Both of them were reduced to chemises and hose now that the last of Leonardo's patrons had come and gone.
"I said that I realized how plain I am," he replied as if to a child. "I don't mean anything by it; just that after working with that beautiful model recently, I was thinking about how I compared." He sighed, gazing at the sketches he'd made. "It's an interesting concept, really--from a purely artistic standpoint, how does bo
Chocobo TFIn a place a long time ago and out of this dimenson, there was a girl named Zaire who loved animals. Big or small she was taking care of each of them often. One day when she was out getting medicine for someone she ran into a chocobo that was getting hurt by its abusive owner. She told the man to leave it alone but he pushed her aside and continued. She couldn't take the abuse that the young bird was experiencing. It was horrible. Blood was everywhere on it. It winced in pain and squabbled on the ground.

Ezio seemed to cast about for a response, startled, but held his tongue. Leonardo could see the thoughts whirling in his head, the hows and the whys and the what-ifs. He found it almost sweet, that someone with Ezio's reputation could still be so innocent. They stood, unspeaking for some time with only the sound of the rain and the soft hiss and pop of the fire.
At last, Leonardo sighed. "I wouldn't actually ask that, you know." He did, however, reach out to cup the side of Ezio's face with a gentle hand. Once more, Ezio remained still and did not shy from the touch; his dark,

There was no movement in the workshop save the swirl of bristles in paint, the barest touch of a brush to canvas. A soft curve appeared, then filled in, layer on layer of pale grey, green, blue. With utmost delicacy, infinite care, the shape of an eye took form through a series of short, precise strokes. Leonardo's concentration was such that he did not appear to hear the door open, nor the bootsteps that crossed his studio floor.
At first, Ezio stood proudly, grinning, hands on hips. He waited in this way for some time, expecting that at any moment, Leonardo would turn and welcome him. Then he frowned. Leonardo still painted, oblivious to h

Leonardo's mouth felt bruised, messy, but at that moment he did not care. He wanted more of that feeling, the softness and hardness and the nip of teeth on his lips and the rasp of Ezio's unshaven face, the fullness of that mouth and the ferocious desire that burned away any reticence either of them might once have had.
The kisses grew more intense, swift clashes of tongues and teeth that rubbed their lips raw. Leonardo closed his eyes, let his head loll back, bared his neck to Ezio. He could not hold in a sharp moan at the feeling of those teeth on his skin. He twisted his fingers into the billowing white sleeves of Ezio'
