Yuki No Hana | Toshiro + Rangiku1.
The first time was forced. Or, more, commanded by his friend, Momo. Tōshirō Hitsugaya wasn't someone who enjoyed to be told what to do, but Momo seemed particularly enthusiastic about this, and he couldn't refuse. After his rather harsh scolding to his Lieutenant for slacking off, Hinamori believed he had been a little too cruel. True, Matsumoto could be infuriatingly lazy, but, at the end of the day, she did mean well, and he would be lost without her.
Well, "lost" was a bit of an exaggeration. Tōshirō would never go that far.
Maybe the flowers were an apology, he wasn't sure. In fact, Hitsugaya was only doing this for Momo. If it made his friend happy, then so be it. However, by the time he collected the bouquet, Tōshirō was sneering to himself. This was dumb; ridiculous. Only pathetic, sappy men did this when they were in love with someone. And he was not in love with Rangiku!
The office was silent without Matsumoto
Crack The Shutters | Chapter 5: HomeEver since the days he used to be raised by his Granny, Tōshirō was an early riser. Never once did he wake up before eight o' clock in the morning; it was natural for him to be up and walking as soon as the sun started to peer over the hills. Sighing happily, he opened his eyes and stared up at the ceiling for a moment, studying the cracks in the paint. Then it dawned on him he felt unusually warmer than normal, and when he remembered why, a small smile reached his lips.
Rolling over onto his side, he watched his Lieutenant sleep. Although this was probably a very odd thing to do, Tōshirō found himself smiling, finding her resting form quite, dare he say it, adorable. The light which darted in through the curtains shone across a part of her face, and he couldn't resist brushing the back of his hand there. He hated the heat, but he certainly didn't hate Rangiku's warmth, and would happily spend the rest of the day beside her.
However, work called. Soul Society
Crack The Shutters | Chapter 4: Complications'Matsumoto!'
After returning from sightseeing near the hotel, Tōshirō returned to his room and discovered a very unpleasant surprise. On the bed, lying on her stomach, his Lieutenant was currently reading one of the free magazines offered by the hotel, sweet wrappers scattered across the quilt cover. He couldn't believe it. After leaving for only twenty minutes he had returned to an absolute mess. How on earth did this woman manage to live alone?
Used to his irritated tone, Rangiku didn't even notice his appearance. Growling to himself, Tōshirō made his way to the bed and began to pick up the sweet wrappers from the bed and floor. It was when he took the box of sweets did Rangiku suddenly plummet back down to earth. Mouth full of chocolate she made a very offended whine, shooting a glare at him.
'This wouldn't be happening if you kept the place tidy! And why my room? You have yours.'
Swallowing her treats, she scowled, 'That's because I don't want to m
Crack The Shutters | Chapter 3: SilenceWhen Matsumoto said this restaurant was "fancy", Tōshirō was expecting the same average diner. However, upon entering the building, he made a mental note to not ever underestimate Rangiku's words. "Fancy" just wasn't the word. He was almost certain they wouldn't be able to afford the meals here, they looked so divine and exquisite. Hitsugaya wasn't aware his Lieutenant's arm was still linked with his until she pulled away from him and made her way towards a waiter so he would find them a table.
Raising his gaze, he admired the chandeliers, the brilliant landscape paintings hung across the walls, the red, lavish carpet, the spiral staircase leading to a second floor. No wonder Matsumoto's paycheque ran out within a couple of days! If she was spending it on shopping and on places like these, it was amazing she still had an apartment back in Soul Society.
So engrossed with his surroundings, Hitsugaya wasn't aware the waiter had already found them a table. Appro
Crack The Shutters | Chapter 2: Gentleman'This place doesn't sell ice cream!'
Glancing around, Tōshirō realised Rangiku had managed to drag him into a clothes shop without him being aware. How could he be so stupid? Was he honestly that engrossed in what she was saying to not actually notice where they were headed? A little ashamed of himself, Hitsugaya shoved his hands into his pockets and eyed his Lieutenant grudgingly. Although Rangiku tended to appear like a complete air-head, she was smart. Infuriatingly so. She knew exactly how to distract him.
The World of the Living was very similar to Soul Society in many aspects. However, Tōshirō preferred The World of the Living. Maybe it was because of the swift change in seasons. Back at Soul Society, the process for a transformation in temperature was much more gradual. There were also places in The World of the Living which snowed constantly, no matter what time of year it was. Tōshirō liked those places; a chill was always good for him.
As his bir
Crack The Shutters | Chapter 1: WatermelonTōshirō Hitsugaya didn't realise it was his birthday, until he spotted the watermelon on his desk, a love heart engraved into its flesh. Maybe he should feel impressed that whoever performed the engraving managed to not make a mess, or spill much juice. Still, he wasn't really one who appreciated explicit messages like these, no matter who they were from. And even if he did adore watermelon, the love heart was not necessary. Inappropriate, actually.
Now, this was either a prank or a gift from someone close to him. It couldn't be from a secret crush! Tōshirō would be aware if someone fancied him; he was good at discovering such things. Plus, the Gotei 13 just riddled with gossip. From the slightest implication of a colleague crushing on another, the rumours spread like crazy.
A sigh escaped his lips. Sitting at his desk, he pulled the watermelon closer and inspected the love heart, as if expecting the culprit behind this to suddenly be revealed. However, he di
Snowdrops | Toshiro + RangikuLight is shy; flees from the slightest threat of darkness.
The office, freezing and dim, is still. No sound can be heard, beside his slow breathing, concentrated mind, furious, pounding heart. It is now when he realises how he loathes silence, how much he loathes a lonely office. Waking up, he dressed, ate some breakfast, and then came to the office. Today, she isn't here and, even though it shames him, he can't help but feel upset.
Only for a few hours can he tolerate the isolation. Tōshirō is not needy, he is independent, chilling and detached. Yet, in this very moment, he feels lonely, unwanted. It doesn't feel right; he doesn't understand. Tōshirō hates it when he can't understand something.
Standing to his feet, he exits the office, attempts to refresh his mind. Nothing works, not even the cool atmosphere outside. It is clear what he needs, what he has to do, but pride merely halts him in his tracks. Secretive, Tōshirō has created a shield, it surroun
Glow | Link + MidnaWhy, she asks, why did you put yourself through so much agony?
The question shall be broken, tears will sting her eyes, and she will hold his face, watch the blood trickle down his cheeks, cover his smiling lips. By now, she should be used to witnessing the boy, covered in his own blood, barely standing. Yet her heart breaks, shatters into thousands of pieces, never to be fixed again.
A chuckle. Short, light, happy. 'Why?' He whispers, 'Because I love you.'
Never has he felt less human. The moment the Mirror became nothing but dust, Link has struggled to find sanity. Day after day, he thinks, sits, and just thinks. Day after day, he attempts to return back to his old life, a life in which he herds cattle, waters plants, helps make the food for the tiny village.
Day after day, his heart is strangled, and he suffers a torture so awful, he believes surely the Goddesses are punishing him. He has become his own worst enemy, a waiting soldier, who will sit in the grassy fields at nigh
A Retreat | Sonic + BlazeThe war had ceased for now. Sonic didn't require much time to recover: he was a relatively impatient boy, usually with himself. The idea of lying around and waiting for his wounds to heal sounded scandalous. Despite Tails's lectures to Sonic that if he didn't rest he would probably end up with two broken legs, Sonic escaped the bed and ventured outside.
South Island was always warm. The sun was fond of it, and the sea appeared gorgeous when the light hit the salty water. Much to his pleasure, the beach was deserted. Marine was probably with Tails, trying to create a vehicle to send them back home. Blaze had business to deal with, regarding the Sol Emeralds and Jewelled Sceptre, while The Coconut Crew were probably discovering materials in an attempt to aid Tails.
Personally, Sonic wouldn't have minded some company. He was very social after all. No one seemed to notice how much he depended on another's presence. The idea of being alone frightened him. It was a topic he had no desire to
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
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
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
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
Levi x Reader - Tea Talk - [AU]
Levi x Reader [AU]
A/N: this is a continuation of the "Eight Miles High" and "A Night in Paris" story line.
The night had ended, but today was a new day. Memories were destined to be made today, and surprises were probably right around the corner. Levi knew how to start the day off right and decided to take you to one of the little French cafés Paris was famous for. As you walked into the quaint little café, the warm aroma of tea, coffee, and pastries took over your senses. Levi seemed to be in a pretty good mood too since there weren't many people here, hoping that you two would have some time to talk. He took his hand in yours and walked up to the cashier at the counter.
"Bonjour monsieur, que puis-je faire pour vous? (Good morning sir, what can I get for you?)" the young cashier spoke, a small blush on her face. Not that you really cared if she thought your fiancé was cute. Most girls, even if they were frightened by him, thought he was handsome. You rarel
Beautiful (Levi X Reader)Everyone has a goal in this world. Everyone has a purpose to live. To reach that goal. Me... Of course, I just want to see the light of tomorrow, just like everyone else. But we all have different goals besides that, right?
I guess I'm expected to be a boring guy. All I do is sit in my office and do paperwork. Or out in the field I'll be slaughtering our enemies. Not much more to me than that, right? That's what everyone thinks. Nothing behind Heichou's door.
They're wrong. I have a goal too, something I live for. This may sound... stupid, but...
Don't think of me like that, I'm not some desperate idiot like Kirstein. I hide my emotions pretty well. But, in town, I see all these young couples, aimlessly walking together while hand-in-hand, and I just think... I can't be the only one. I can't be the only one that's alone. There has to be someone like me.
Then I saw her.
I've seen lots of pretty faces around. The regular girls with the broad chest and wide hips and tiny waist. The
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
A Kiss In The Rain (Eren X Reader) Modern AU
"Alright, that's a iced mocha for you, and a latte for me." A voice rang out, setting something on the table. You looked up from your book to see a green-eyed boy giving you a warm smile. You grinned back, and took your cup from the table as he sat across from you.
"Look at you, already knowing my coffee order." You said. He rolled his eyes with a soft smile and sipped his drink.
"I've known your coffee order for a long time, since we've been together for two years." He said, leaning across the table to kiss the tip of your nose. You two had both met in college, and immediately clicked. He was a year older than you, sure, but still. It wasn't such a gap, though your parents still disapproved. He was in his last year, while you were on your third.
You shrugged with a smirk once he pulled away. "Well, a big turn-on for girls is when a guy knows her coffee order. It may sound stupid to you, but for us, it means that you're actually listening and paying attention to us."
His eyes widened.
Crown | Link and MidnaThe two were broken by the time they reached the possessed Lord.
It became a battle of wits, and Link was victorious. Yet fear ran through his veins. Countless times the boy had fought sword in hand, won and continued. Soon it seemed as if his entire life revolved around saving the Princess Zelda but when the day finally came, Link wasn't focussed. A piece was missing, and it was huge, frightening monstrous.
Except pieces didn't scream.
A Knight has nothing to protect without a Queen.
Her absence created an effect, and he was desperate to touch her. However fate seemingly wasn't on his side when Ganondorf closed a barrier between them. A horrible rage ignited within him, and the barrier didn't fade, unlike his pride. For it was as if the barrier was not created by only Ganondorf, but everyone around him.
Never will Link reach her. They simply weren't.
Suddenly everything became nothing.
When they were reunited, it lasted less than an hour. Such short little ti
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
to crumble up
the remnant pieces
of my love for you
and throw them in the trash
but I'm such a bad shot.
Keep in Touch!
