Characters: Jessica, Kevin, Emily, Nelson, Brandon, Rob, Annie, Monica, Valerie
Summary: Now that Aunt Lauren is gone, how will Jessica get through possibly the most difficult part of her death, the funeral? And will she ever be okay again?
After school, Emily went to Jessica’s house. She was worried about her friend and was desperate to make sure Jessica really was okay. Jessica’s dad opened the door when she knocked.
“Jessica isn’t here right now, Emily,” Nelson said slowly. He was touched to see Jessica’s friend coming to find her.
“Where is she?” Emily asked. “I’ve been worried about her. She hadn’t been herself lately, and when she didn’t come to school today…” Emily’s voice trailed off.
“I know. She’s at the park.” Nelson wasn’t sure what else to say. He knew Jessica was upset, and she wanted to be alone. But he wasn’t sure if
Springtime: Love in the Air BySpringtime: Love in the Air By Manwathiel
Part 1 of a much longer story.
This comes after the story about Jessica.
Characters: Jessica, Annie, Emily, Valerie, Monica, Timothy, Peter, Justin, Andy, Nelson
Love was in the air at school, and the boys were acting silly. Valerie giggled at their antics. Emily rolled her eyes. Monica laughed, and Jessica gave a small smile. Annie groaned.
It was late spring, and they were juniors. Valerie laughed loudly at something Andy did, then looked guilty. She and Andy had gotten together over Christmas break, and she was thrilled. She had been crushing on him since the beginning of high school.
She shared a glance with Monica. Monica had been secretly in love with Justin for the entire year, and Valerie wouldn’t be surprised if they started dating soon. Annie had been dating Timothy since March, and Emily was totally in love with Damien, although they weren’t together. And Peter had been

Jessica's Life, Ch. 4: Caving In By Manwathiel
Characters: Jessica, Emily, Lauren, Nelson, Kevin, Rob, Valerie, Annie, Brandon
Summary: A couple of weeks after the big game, Jessica's life is falling apart.
Jessica didn’t know how to go on anymore. Her dad was taking time off work, but her mom was as busy as ever. Brandon still refused to visit Aunt Lauren, even thought they all knew she didn’t have long. Kevin had all but disappeared, and Jessica was having trouble focusing.
She was sitting in her US history class with Annie when her phone buzzed. She looked down at it and saw that it was her dad. She gasped. She didn’t want to open it, didn’t want to know what had happened.
Annie glanced at her, motioning to her phone.
What’s going on, Jess? Are you okay? -Annie
I can’t talk right now. I have to go. -Jess
Jessica packed up her stuff and walked out. She had already talked with most of her teache

Characters: Jessica, Emily, Kevin, Nelson, Valerie, Lauren, Rob, Susan, Brandon
Summary: The big game is coming up, but how is Jessica feeling? And how can she play a game without Aunt Lauren being there to watch? And what's up with her dad?
“You seem to be doing a bit better, Jess,” Emily said on Thursday. Jessica nodded slowly.
“Yeah. I guess. I’ve been working with Kevin on some stuff,” Jessica said. “And he’s making sure I’m eating enough every day. So you don’t have to worry.” She gave a smile.
“Good. Someone needs to make sure you are,” Emily replied with a giggle. Then she grew serious again. “But seriously. I’ve been praying for you, and so has Annie.”
“Thanks, Emily,” Jessica said. “If you could, would you keep praying? For me and for my family? And for Kevin?”
“Sure,” Emily said. “Of course.” Jessica smi
Jessica's Life, Ch. 2: DistractedJessica's Life, Ch. 2: Distracted
Characters: Jessica, Kevin, Lauren, Emily, Brandon, Monica, Valerie
Summary: It's getting closer to the championship game, but Jessica can't focus. With Aunt Lauren worse, why does anything matter? And how can she possible go on when her whole world is crashing in on her?
A couple of weeks later, Jessica was at soccer practice. But her heart wasn’t in it. She looked over at Kevin, wondering how he was holding himself together.
Aunt Lauren was worse. Much worse. The doctors had moved her into the hospital so they could try to take care of her better. Jessica really hated seeing her aunt so sick.
“Jess, are you okay? You seem a little out of it today,” Emily said, placing her hand on her friend’s shoulder. Jessica just shook her head.
“I can’t talk about it,” she muttered through tears. She jogged over to Kevin when he motioned to her.
“Jessica, I know this is really hard. But she wouldn’t want you to
Jessica's Life, Ch. 1: Family Jessica's Life, Ch. 1: Family
Characters: Jessica, Emily, Valerie, Kevin, Monica, Annie, Lauren, Susan, Nelson, Rob, Brandon
Summary: Jessica doesn't want to tell her friends what's really going on. She will only drop little hints.
The girls sat on a bench in the park after their big game.
“Kevin’s just a big softie, Jess. You know that,” Emily Winters said. “He’s not going to do anything about it.”
“I hope not. Sometimes it’s fun having my cousin as my coach, but most of the time, I hate it. He knows me way too well,” Jessica Morris said, frowning. “Did you know he used to chase me around our grandmother’s house when we all went there for holidays? And he used to tease me all the time.”
“Is that so bad?” Emily asked, laughing. The only cousin she knew was her cousin Nate who lived in New York. Holidays, at least before her dad married Christina, had been quiet affairs in her home because they had no fa
Emily's Asthma TroubleEmily's Asthma Trouble
Characters: Emily, Tiffany, Jessica, Valerie, Monica, Kevin, Damien, Annie, Emily's family
Summary: Emily is having trouble with her asthma, and they have a huge and important soccer game coming up.
Tiffany ran down the soccer field and kicked the ball. Emily glared at her, still annoyed over that had happened years before. It irked her that Tiffany was so happy with her boyfriend, and here she was, broken up and her heart breaking.
“Jessica! Pass it here!” A voice pulled Emily out of her thoughts and back to the practice game at hand. She glanced over at Valerie, who now had the ball and was racing down the field.
Practice was exhausting, and all the girls were breathing hard. Emily was having more trouble than usual with her breathing, and her coach called her over.
“Emily, are you feeling okay today?” Kevin asked her.
“Yeah… I’m fine,” she replied, still breathing heavily. She knew she had to take care of her as
Heartbroken.... Yet HopefulHeartbroken... Yet Hopeful
Characters: Annie, Travis, Melissa, Christina, another boy
Summary: Annie, as she prepares for graduation from college, is fully in love with Travis. But then she gets a weird message.
Annie sat on their bench, waiting for Travis to show up. He was unusually late for their normal meeting, and she started to get concerned. It wasn't like him to keep her waiting.
It had been a little bit more than a year since he asked her to become his girlfriend, and now that she was almost graduating, she was expecting something big from him. He had said he wanted to talk to her.
"Come on, sweetheart. Where are you?" she said softly. "You know I have class at 1." It was 12:45, and she couldn't wait much longer. She decided to text him.
Hey trav. I waited for you at our normal spot, but you never showed up. I have to go to class now. Text me, okay? Love you.
She frowned. As she waited, her concern turned into annoyance. Finally
Frankenstein- Alt. endingWARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ FRANKENSTEIN!!!!!!!!!!! MAJOR SPOILER ALERT TO ENDING OF BOOK!!!!!!!
Alternate Ending to Frankenstein
My dearest Margaret, I write to you with a strange desire in my heart. You will surely remember my friend Frankenstein's creature that abandoned my ship recently, right? Well, the sudden desire to follow him has entered my heart. Frankenstein laid it on me to kill this creature, and I did not. I could not bring myself to do it in Frankenstein's own room. So he jumped out the window and onto the ice.
Now I wish to follow him and see if he did all he said he would do. Remember that he told me he would die by burning himself. My desire is to see this happen.
Do you remember, my dear sister, how long ago I told you that I wished to accomplish something great? Well, now I feel this is my chance. I was not successful as a poet, or as an Artic explorer. The only thing I found in the North Pole was a friend, Victor Frankenstein. B
Its Watching Me - Monster? Levi x Reader
In a night without the moon
a certain monster lurks
It watches intently
And when the moon is blue and full
You couldn’t explain it but you felt a certain set of eyes staring at you when you went to sleep.
Everyday you would go to school, do homework, and sleep. Repeat that routine five more times and that was your whole school week.
You always longed for something interesting to happen in your life but as usual with wishes nothing happened.
And no you weren’t a lonely or unsociable person. You had a great set of friends but namely the people you trusted your life with was Levi, Erwin, and Mikasa.
They were almost always around to talk to even though they had their own lives to deal with.
You sighed into your hand while doing your homework on your bed. “Highschool sucks”
Finally finishing homework, you put down your stuff and turned off the light.
And there the monster lurks
.: Reader x Sollux: Hack Wars (Masterpost) :."Must...
You muttered to yourself as you sat up in bed, groggily. Your hair was ruffled and you could personally care less.Though the fact was true, there was one thing you did care about. What day of week it was. You had a natural setting in your mind to wake yourself up around when you set your alarm clock to go off. Wait- your alarm clock didn't go off. What time was it? 7:05 A.M, February 25th, 2013. School canceled due to unexpected snow storm. Your digital calendar read.
You stood up and yawned, a small smile stretching across your face. No school today. Sweet. Just to be sure, you peeked out your window and surely enough, snow was everywhere. You hope your cat is okay...Yeah, you let her in last night. With another yawn, you shuffled over to your laptop and cracked it open.

Bite Sized: Hoodies are Chub Incubators
Karen dropped her backpack down with a mighty TWACK, not worried about it's heavy contents. Those books were sturdy. Unlike her legs, which felt like they'd give out any minute, shaking like jelly. A little too literal of a simile for Karen's taste as well.
More than a feeling, her thighs wobbled, shook, and pressed up together like gallons of pudding in a denim sack. Even her calves were several pints too full as well.
Panting heavily, Karen stumbled over to her bed and flopped on it, assaulting the springs in her mattress making them rebel for a few seconds. She groaned, facedown in her bed, short blonde hair splaying about her head, bangs slightly sweaty.
Using the stairs to get up to her dorm was supposed to help her trim up a bit. But if she tried that again she'd effing die. What was the point?
Adjusting her position, trying to spread out her legs for a stretch, Karen received a breeze up her back quite suddenly. Reluctantly, she slowly rotated her head to look into the mirror on
The Dance Team pt. 2Marisa was talking to a short, busty blonde when she saw Gwen storming out from the back.
Marisa held up a hand, motioning for the girl speaking to hush, apologizing, "Sorry, Tara, but I gotta cut you off. She just came out."
Tara understood, she nodding quickly and walking away from the scene.
Gwen was looking good, Marisa thought, hot as hell, and entirely pissed off. She didn't move towards her, just watched, enraptured, as her friend moved in her direction, wearing what must have been tonight's scheduled work attire, a blue, strappy bikini, the breasts studded with sequins and all of it entirely too small for a woman of her size. This last fact was more evident than ever just now, with the way she was walking, raging, conscious of the way her her thick, exposed body was jiggling with every step, but not in the mood to care about it. She looked furious, to put it lightly, her forehead was wrinkled with rage. She still had that hourglass shape, but it was a very thick hourglas
Ben Tennyson VS Avatar Korra The Battle
Kra: “The scenario has been made, the fighters are set, and it’s time to see which gritty kids show hero is more powerful."
Natalia: “It’s time to settle this debate once and for all. Avatar VS Omnitrix. Aliens VS Elements.”
Both: “It’s time for a Death Battle!”
Kra: “And remember folks; you can only watch this, ONLINE!”
Natalia: “Was that a shot at Nickelodeon? Kra, I’m proud of you!”
Republic City, Pro-Bending Arena
High above the churning crowds, an airship’s loudspeakers echoed an orchestra of brass music that carried throughout the arena.
Hypnotic Brass Ensemble: War
“Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelcoooooooooooooooooooooooooome back Spectators! I’m your very own Pro-bending host, Shiro Shinobi, with continued coverage of the Nick VS CN contest of champions!”
The Dance Team pt. 3The next morning, Marisa woke up first, and she didn't waste any time before she began planning. She was good with plans, she always had been, and the one in her head was one of her best yet.
She buzzed around the apartment, trying to be quiet, stepping as lightly as her 280 pound body could manage, setting things in place, making phone calls, knowing full well it might all be for nothing. Gwen was crucial to all this, and when she woke up, Marisa asked immediately, hoping for a specific answer, "You still up for it?"
Gwen sat quiet for a second, and Marisa's anxiety rose, but when she answered, it was with a submissive shrug and an unenthused, "Yeah, what the hell, let's do it."
Marisa held her excitement to a slight grin, "Breakfast?"
"Do you even have to ask?"
Marisa half-laughed, "Kinda, a little, yeah. Breakfast means heading out, and you, uh, don't look ready."
Gwen looked down at herself, and saw a mess. She looked a slob, staring down at the soft, exposed mass of her once-fit f
England x reader : KingI do not own hetalia or you~
The song is King by Lauren Aquilina
16 years old
I sat quietly right outside England's bedroom. I could hear him quietly crying. I felt my heart ache knowing that he still missed America. I know I'm not a strong nation like America...but I'm trying...I'm the nation of (c/n). I sighed and looked at the guitar next to me. I had written the song for England...hoping it would make him feel better. I stood and took a deep breath and stood. I left my guitar in the hallway and pushed open the door. England was sitting with his back to the door looking out the window. "England..." I said softly looking at his blonde messy hair. "(C/n)....come here love." He said. His voice cracked ever so slightly. I walked over and sat next to him. "You know...i never thought he would leave me...but he did...and now that I have you...all I'm expecting is for you do leave me." I looked at the side of his face. I watched a tear roll down it. "England..." I whispered. I lo
D is for DisintegrationI’ve always prided myself on being self-sufficient. I wanted to live off the grid- use solar energy for power and grow all my own food. When I accomplished this it was my finest hour. It had been hard, much harder than I anticipated but I did it. I had land which I farmed, a home built from sustainable materials, I was alone but happy- so busy that I didn’t have time to feel lonely. I felt an incredible sense of achievement for escaping the life most people led.
I thought most humans were greedy and gluttonous, so lazy in an age of technology that spurred nothing but anti-social behavior and a blatant disregard for our planet. I believe it was that disregard which brings us where we are today. I lived on my farm for less than a year when the earth was done with being robbed of its fossil fuels and had begun its disintegration.
It started with natural disasters. A host of seismic activity shook the world. Earthquakes ripped apart fault lines and great chasms were formed that
The Dance Team pt. 4Eight weeks is what it took.
They spent a full two months of preparing, working, lazing, growing, strengthening, and the effort had paid off.
They were in Marisa's apartment that day, they were less than modest, and their 'hard work' was clear to see.
There was food all around the room, but in a strange turn of events, neither woman was indulging. Gwen was in the couch, soft fabric stretchy shorts and no bra, deep in thought, and of the pair, she was the most clearly affected by the month and a half of training. Her gain had never been fast before, she'd had a slow, gradual, but continuous expansion for years, but the past few weeks, under the Marisa's mentorship, she'd positively exploded outward. She'd gained twenty pounds a month, two months in a row, and none of this new weight was muscle. Her bottom-heavy hourglass figure was more evident than ever, her genetics somehow holding it together in the face of her gain, but these days, the hourglass looked large enough to house ev
Modern Woman at the WellModern Version of "Woman at the Well" By Manwathiel
There was this one day, that strange day
I was on my way home after work and decided to stop at Starbucks. While I was there, I saw an older woman sitting by herself. She looked sad and lonely, so I asked if I could sit with her. She said yes, and I sat down at her small table.
"What's wrong?" I asked, for you will remember she looked sad.
"Twelve years. it's been twelve years," she said very slowly. "Twelve years to the day. Since he died." This came very slowly, but in the end, I learned that her husband had died twelve years before on that particular day. She also told me that, shortly before he died, he became a Christian. She didn't seem very happy with that fact, so I started telling her about how loving God is and how much He wants her.
"God wants you to love Him, and if your husband accepted Christ before he passed away, then he's in heaven, dancing and celebrating with God. I'm sure John would want you to join hi
