    Summary

    Mori had done it with the windows open. The entire city of Yokohama could see him do it if anyone had their eyes upon the tall building. Maybe the windows were too high up to be seen from the street, and perhaps the glass was stained with colours that made it difficult to see in or out, but it didn’t matter. It was a power move. A ploy designed to showcase Mori’s power. His power over the Port Mafia, at least. He spoke about the boss’s- previous boss’s illness. How he succumbed to his fever, his last words dictating Mori to be the new head of the Port Mafia.

     

    “You’re the witness to that fact. Understood?”

    Summary

    “Red Winter is over,” he muses; no, announces, really, “a Red Spring has begun.”

    He crumples to the ground in despair when he sees Red lying next to the first bloom of spring. Happens to be a poppy too, the colour of the Dogwarts banner; the colour of blood running down snow.

    Maybe what the pawn turned into at the end of the board wasn’t that important, only that it actually reached the end, in position to kill the king.

    Or, the fic where all of Martyn’s wildest lore dreams (or nightmares) come true.

    Three years spent as the FBI's top profiling professor has afforded Eve Polastri the chance to make use of her ex-CIA skills while avoiding the dangers she used to face in the field- that is, until she's asked to consult on the profile of a complex & psychopathic cannibal targeting young girls.

    Summary

    Captain Kirk invited Commander Spock to his quarters to play chess at 2000 hours. Jim and Spock had played chess before, but never alone, never in one of their quarters. Jim had come up with a brilliant plan, saying he wanted them to be able to focus in a calmer environment, away from the rest of the crew. He wanted time alone with his first officer.

    Summary

    Fuck fuck fuck how? Motherfucker why? is H*yo some kind of system or what?

    Im just a German teenage and a dirtbag gamer, shut in, who gets no bitches and cries for fictional characters.

    Motherfucker, how did i get isekaid as the Nameless Bard?
    --------
    We all know the Story of the Main Character getting Isekai'ed into their favourite Novel or anything story related, watch this MC have their fun in the World of Teyvat, just to realize that he is just another Pawn of Celestia, to realize that it wasnt that easy and that he lost the game with his very first Move. To think its easy to pretend to be a 2600year old living Corpse? And to come clean to a God?

    ----
    I used my knowledge I collected at the Police and Lawyer, sadly im not the brightest of the Stars and I really wish I had secretly snooped around more in the Archives while I had the chance... ( <- this part with snooping is a joke dont sue me, everything I witnessed there will be a secret between me and them.)
    Dont get fooled, just because it starts with humour, Im known for Angst
    (German cus hes going to be in Mondstadt and im quite confident im my German skills)

    Summary

    Fyodor and Dazai make a small bet.

    OR

    Those thin, elegant fingers locked in his hair, pulled him barely up before pushing into his mouth with his hips, using his other hand as support against the cold floor.

    "Your handy work, I presume?"

     

    The chatting in the midst of fucking Atsushi's throat as if the tiger was nothing but a common whore both annoyed and turned him the fuck on.

     

    "Of course. He was taught by the best." Dazai shrugged from his chair, a smirk clearly present in his tone. Fuck. 

     

    "Well, not by the best, since I wasn't the one using this pretty little thing." Fyodor smiled nonchalantly as he used his hand to pull and push his head, which made him moan and move his tongue around the member, licking the underside of the length before swirling his tongue all the way around. "But I must admit, that tongue of his is quite pleasant." 

     

    "He's licking me while I fuck his throat." The man said, as if that's an achievement worth mentioning. He grazed the length with his teeth just slightly, drawing a breath out of those icy lips.

    Summary

    “Somehow you strayed and lost your way, and now there’ll be no time to play, no time for joy, no time for friends – not even time to make amends.”

    ~~

    “Overblot is in its own way: a sickness, and it’s symptoms may vary.

    “Some cases have lasting symptoms.

    “For example: Should ink from an over lot get into a patients eyes, nose, or mouth, they might find their respective senses lacking for the rest of their life. Loss of taste, sight, and smell, are possible if ink does get into these places.”

    Riddle told Cater to stop reading after that paragraph, Storm grey eyes staring blankly ahead, clouded over in an unfocused haze.

    He grit his teeth, and reminded himself not to cry.

    He was Riddle Rosehearts, of the Rosehearts Family. This was nothing but a setback.

    Summary

    Bernard is always breathless when he speaks to Tim, which would be absolutely funny if it wasn't hopelessly enamouring. He'd never thought he'd be so important to someone. So cherished.

    It's like the words are running away from him, and he hurries to catch up with them before the real things he wants to say reach Tim's ears. Tim wants to cry as he thinks about how profound that is.

    He wants to catch each breath with his own, and in the cruellest, most terribly selfish way, Tim wants to steal all the air in Bernard's lungs and replace them with his own. He wants Bernard to live on nothing but him.

    Tim feels himself curl up at the thought, ashamed and only mildly horrified.

    (Tim has no idea how to express how much he truly loves Bernard.)
