For North Korea Lovers--2nd Edition ~~~In a world where you have waited for decades to be free from your current master, Russia, something happens quite suddenly.~~
"I have decided something, _______. You will talk it over with me, da?" Russia asks you one cold afternoon.
Estonia has prepared hot cocoa for everyone (everyone being you, your "inmates"--Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania--and Russia). The Trembling Trio sits in the corner, attempting to drink their cocoa. You sit with Russia at the table, and drink your cocoa with him.
"Yes, Russia," you say, calm and collected.
"You might know about how our slavery contract is almost expired. I have decided to tear up the contract and release you." His trademark smile appears.
You move to hug him, hesitate, then follow through. Russia just laughs and pats your head. "I knew you would be happy."
"Thank you, Russia! You won't regret this!" Tears brim in your eyes; you wipe them away hurriedly. "I'
MadnessWith the music so loud,
The world fades away to nothing...
I can't hear anyone's words
Except for mine.
Staring into a blank picture,
Admiring the colors that it could have...
Do I expect something from it
Or does it expect something from me?
Hidden in the corner,
I'm a pathetic creature
Wanting no one else but
Swaying to no beat,
I'm losing my mind
Because I cannot be with
They took me away a long time ago;
They silenced my music
And burned my paper.
All I have now is the remains
Of my sanity and imagination.
Only there can I pretend
For Hideyoshi Kinoshita Lovers"Kinoshita! I expected better of you on this test," Ironman mutters, throwing stapled papers at Hideyoshi.
"Yes, sir," Hideyoshi mutters.
He looks pretty down... you think, sighing. Ironman passes your test to you. "Well done, _______."
You can't believe it. You aced the test! You glance again at Hideyoshi, wishing he could have done the same. Fumizuki Academy's drama department is doing a production of the English play "Romeo and Juliet"; Hideyoshi must have been memorizing the script for tryouts.
After school ends, you sit patiently backstage in the auditorium, waiting for the drama teacher to call your name. It's call backs; you're on the verge of sweating, for nervousness has never had a tighter grip on you.
"Nervous, _______ _______?" a voice asks quietly. You turn quickly to the speaker; it's Hideyoshi. Never mind. In this moment, nervousness has never had a tighter g
For Reborn Lovers"Excuse me," someone says, breaking into your thinking. Their voice seems to be coming from the floor.
"Sorry, I spaced out." You bow your head and step aside.
You were in a crowded bakery. You heard that this particular place had the best cookies in town, but you didn't believe the rumors. You came today to try it out; you ordered their sampler plate of twelve different cookies. You had the package in your hand and paid for, but you spaced out. A lot has been going on lately.
A baby with a top hat and a sharp suit looks up at you. "It's fine, miss. ...May I ask your name?"
You look down at him. "_______. And you are?"
"Call me Reborn. It's very nice to meet you, _______." You shake hands.
"...How old are you?"
"That is irrelevant to our acquaintance." He picks up his package and the two of you walk outside together. "What I really am here for is to enjoy these sweets.
For Prussia Lovers--2nd Edition "Prussia! I'm heading out now!" you call over your shoulder. You turn to the door to find Prussia, your ruler, leaning against the door.
"You're not going anywhere, _______," he hisses. "You obey the awesome Prussia now!"
He's right. He beat you fair and square in that battle half a century ago. "Yes, sir." No point in resisting.
Prussia leads you to the couch in the living room, then asks you where you were heading. "I was going to see Hungary. I had an urge to speak with her again."
"Really? Hungary is your friend?"
"Odd..." Silence fills the large space between the two of you. "Why did you battle me that day without her behind you? It's foolish."
"I was obviously angry with you. I guess my anger clouded my judgement. Why do you ask such a question of a poor, weak country like me?" you wonder.
"_______, I'm bored.
For Romano Lovers--2nd Edition "Okay. So all I have to do is buy tomatoes, spices, and pasta?" you ask Romano, double checking your grocery list.
Romano smirks, "Si, now go before I make-a you go." You realize he looks incredibly attractive when he smiles.
You leave, too stunned to say another word.
At the grocery market, you run into Germany. He helps you carry your bags back to your car. On the way, you get into a very deep conversation about lost ships.
"Zhere. I have helped you vis your bags. ...Could you do me a favor?" he asks nervously.
You've never seen him nervous. "I suppose so."
"Form an alliance vis me. I need more help."
"Really? ...I don't know..."
Growing impatient, he demands, "DECIDE NOW. Ze stress takes a toll on my blood pressure."
"FINE, I'M IN AGREEMENT."
"Sehr gut. Have a nice day, _______." He shakes you
For Zim Lovers--2nd EditionYou glare across the classroom at Zim. Another Irken...sent on a secret mission to this planet of dirt and worms...I know Tak tried to take over and failed, so that idiot must have some wit secretly about him. How dare The Tallest send him and not me?! I've seen more wars than he!!
He looks back at you and raises an eyebrow in suspicion. You look at the chalk board where Ms. Bitters is droning on about human history events.
"...and that is why we have a larger military force." Ms. Bitters slithers to your desk. "Were you paying attention, _______?"
"Yes, ma'am," you reply confidently.
"Repeat the point of this lesson."
"We have enlarged the military force to keep other countries from invading or doing harm to each other. America has appointed itself as Interpol, in a phrase."
Ms. Bitters stares you down; you do not avoid her cold gaze, you face it with yours of fire. "I hope the rest of you were listening, this child has spok
For North Korea LoversThis story contains some violence and light swearing.
You inhale the sweet scent of South Korean candy as you unwrap one candy of each flavor in the package. You pop all of them into your mouth, and the mixture of the flavors is extremely invigorating. You grin at your friend. ...As much as possible, anyway. Your mouth is relatively full.
South Korea smiles. "I'm so happy you tried it! That's my favorite thing to do with these candies."
When you finally swallow, you agree, "It's my new favorite."
His posture changes; he's just remembered something. He reaches into his sleeve and produces a small stuffed animal. "I know you like toy bears, so I made one for you. Thank you for being such a great ally, _______." He bows his head to you.
You bow in return and accept the bear. It is as soft as a cloud, with eyes that sparkled like stars in the sky. "Aww!! How did you ever find the time?"
For InuYasha Lovers--2nd EditionThis story contains some strong language.
I've been good throughout my life, right? I've lived well. I've done unto others as I'd have done to me. So...why am I thrown over Koga's shoulder?
You couldn't believe it. This is the third attempt that Koga launched to capture you and, paraphrasing his words, make you his woman. InuYasha is going to be really pissed... You sigh, sick and tired of being the damsel in distress.
Koga laughs; his shoulder digs into your stomach with every shake. "If only I could contact InuYasha from this distance. I'll have to get one of my men to send him my little note." He produces a rolled up parchment from his belt.
"You have a lot to say to him, Koga. Why not say it in person? He'll notice that I'm gone, you know. He always notices." You chuckle.
"Don't worry, darling. He'll be taken care of soon enough."
Death isn't a fresh perspectiveI saw my mother
swallowing something small
when I was just a child
The anguish in her eyes
faded, as she told me
it was just a
with a little extra kick
maybe years later,
that's how I convinced
to swallow fifteen,
give me a fresh perspective;
in the end,
my breath reeked
instead of mint.
Our Captain (Robin Williams Remembrance Poem)Oh, Captain
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.
You came to us as an Alien,
from the Planet Ork.
But through the Years,
You made Home in Our Hearts
We Saluted You over the Airwaves
We Watched You get Sucked in a Game,
And Haul Your Family in the Big Rolling Turd.
You were a British Nanny,
Who was actually their Dad.
A Business Man,
Who was actually Peter Pan.
A Crazy Scientist,
Making a Being called Flubber.
Who Just Wanted to be Free.
You were a Robot,
Made of Rusty Old Parts.
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.
You became the Man of the Year,
And the Wax Figurine Exhibit
Of the Twenty-Sixth President
Of the United States of America.
You Were the World’s Greatest Dad,
And the World’s Greatest Therapist.
You Had a License to Wed
And be a Kid,
Who Grew Up Four Times Too Fast.
You only Won One Oscar.
But that’s okay.
We Love all Your Other Works Anyways…
We Will Miss You
to a crucifix
on the left side
of his neck
tells me he can end all
of your suffering -
and i look at him
and i cross my arms, thinking
he can't even do this
DoormatI let you walk
All over me
Like the floor
Beneath your feet
And I never complain
The floor doesn't
If the floor complained
When you walked on it
You would be very annoyed
And you would probably
So I don't complain
Because I don't want
To be replaced
And I let you
Push me around
Like a cart
Through a shop
And I never push back
The cart doesn't
If the cart pushed back
When you pushed it
You would get hurt
And you would probably
So I don't push back
Because I don't want
To be left alone
Now, and forever more
Who lets you
Wipe your feet on my face
I love you
But I question
If you love me back
Because who would love
A dirty old Doormat?
It Trapped Her, It Released HerWhen I was younger, and little girl, I wanted a little brother.
So when she got home, I excitedly ran down stairs to tell my mother
She looked at me nervously, and brushed my question away.
“Honey, I don't have time now, we'll talk about it another day.”
I was slightly disappointed because my friends all had younger siblings,
I only had an older sister who tried her best to ignore me.
But that day she heard what I asked my mother and after dinner, pulled me in her room.
And with a sneer she whispered silently, “Mother sent our little brother to heaven too soon.”
At the age of nine, with a child's mind, I had no idea with that meant.
“Is that why Daddy went away, because he misses him?”
“Daddy got depressed and died,” she replied with a scowl,
“But don't be sad, he's in the clouds, he's with our brother now.”
Days went by and I remained silent,
yet I could see the light in my mother's eyes no longer lit.
After my question she w
I died todayI died today
Took my own life
I was tired
I was desperate
And now I'm dead
People never cared
So I left them behind
Now a new life awaits
Beyond the gates of Hell
SkinnyI wish you'd believe me,
When I tell you you're pretty,
That you don't need to skip a meal or run 7 miles,
Just so you can be skinny,
You talk about how you hate yourself,
You wish you could be stunning, beautiful, gorgeous.
You think that if you looked like a model,
That you'd never be lonely,
Everyone would love you.
You think you d get that guy you ve been dreaming of,
Maybe mommy and daddy wouldn't be so harsh if they had a pretty little girl.
You re skin and bone,
But that is not good enough,
You need less and less,
And every pound that disappears,
You begin to lose yourself in a vicious cycle.
Until you re consumed and it eats away at you.
I beg you to listen to me,
I want you to know that you mean everything,
But you don't care,
And then when the ambulances came,
And carried you away...
There was nothing more I could say...
I guess you were unaware,
That you were already beautiful.
Breathing RoomI leave chrysanthemums
scattered at your feet on tile floor
like the pencil shavings piled
on your desk.
"The flower of death,"
with Rorschach roses on your knuckles
and the hint of a warrior
in the line of your lips,
you sketch bears with open jaws
and black-shadow eyes
in the margins of your math book
with permanent ink.
The hooded abyss of your gaze
you can't bring yourself to say:
Love is short
and prone to fading.
It's a good thing I don't mind breathing life
into negative spaces.
SunlightShe conceals herself in shadows
Just to escape the sunlight.
She's hidden indoors for years
To avoid its wrath
Upon her fragile skin.
She's become cold
Without facing her
"Demon in the Sky".
She's loathed every family trip
Because the sun tries to
Reconnect with her.
Her blood boils at the idea
Of being its friend again,
But her warmth does not return.
One gray, cloudy day,
The sun catches her by surprise.
She left her cloak at home
And did not bother with long sleeves.
The sun kissed her cheek gently,
Staying partially hidden by the clouds.
She stopped running.
Warm tingles spread throughout
Her chilled limbs...
A small smile spread across
Her face, and grew strong.
No matter how unfavorable the weather seems, one misses how it feels once in a while.
