Made in HollandI had never heard of a music box before she let me hold it. She said it felt too cliché to be real, and thats how she knew that there wasnt any such thing. But I could feel its weight in my hands and hear the tinny tune of its labor, and I started to think that maybe she was wrong.
She said you couldnt trust a musician, and thats all it was. A tiny, plastic, fake of a musician. She even said the sticker on the back had lied, and that it probably wasnt Made in Holland. Probably not any of the other European tourist countries, she said.
When it got so cold that we couldnt feel our fingertips and the sky hurt to look at, I played the music box and pretended I was Made in Holland too.
The LispMarietta suspected strongly by the end of the week, but had little opportunity to pinpoint any proof. She spent every spare moment with Henry in the subtle pursuit of slipping him up, jarring the conversation into unexpected turns. Yes became a rather indifferent okay or alright, no matter how many different ways she managed to ask for affirmation. He veered around plurals and possessives as if they were road kill.
How many balloons are there? she asked.
Eight, said Henry.
Not seven? It looks to me like there are seven.
Henry stiffened but didnt back down. Huh. I thought I noted one more.
You mean you thought you spotted it? Saw it, maybe? Noticed it, even?
Henry tied the balloons to the chair and turned to face her.
I didnt note it, he said.
And that was the end of that.
Marietta wondered if she was the only one to detect
The Man in the Bowler HatIn his defense, the man at the door looked more pathetic to Lydia than a red sock on laundry day. He gripped the wet bowler hat with two clenched fists, dripping considerably on her Wipe Your Paws welcome mat. She had trouble keeping her eyes open long enough to glare at him.
Four in the morning, she said. You know, like the little hand on the four, except you have a tad trouble seeing it, what with it being dark outside?
Miss, I know it might come as a shock to you, but-
Shock? No. Surprisingly, things dont seem very shocking at you-must-be-kidding-me oclock. The milk hasnt even come yet. You have me up earlier than the milk.
The man with the bowler hat studied the dahlias hanging over the archway of the front door. They were salmon, the color of doubt. We found her, Miss. And she wants to see you. We found her and she wants to see you as soon as you can.
Lydia was already searching for her shoes
Run (Levi x reader Modern AU)
I was running. Like, literally running for my life. My whole entire life was in danger. Why? Let’s just say I accidentally- wait no…ehem, let me rephrase that; purposely created a giant mess in the apartment of the ‘clean freak’, otherwise known as Levi.
Yep. The one and only clean freak that can seriously kill you with only his intimidating eyes, Levi Ackerman.
I mean, what’s so wrong about having fun? Obviously everything when it comes to Levi. It’s like having fun around him is taboo. If you do one thing that really bothers him, for example, move just one pencil out of place or attempt to throw one piece of paper into the bin and miss horribly, he will kick ass all the way to, like, freaking China!
His OCD really irritates me at some times. It makes me wonder how I even became his girlfriend. I don’t think his obsessiveness of cleaning and my obsessiveness of clumsiness work that well together.
Anyways, where was I? Ah, yeah. I was running f
Dreams And Nightmares Ch 2 (Shadow!Italy X Reader)
Dreams And Nightmares Chp. 2
(ShadowItaly X Reader)
I opened my eyes to see I was in a meadow. I rolled my head on what seemed to be bark from a tree. Flowers were scattered all across the field and small hills. Fairies dance away in this distance, as glitter filled my shocked (e/c) eyes. I try to pick myself up, still mesmerized by the things I was seeing, and lean on the tree. I look over from the tree to see a crystal blue lake.
"What is this place..." I mumbled to myself,"Why do I feel this isn't really real," I mumbled. Close my eyes and think for a moment. I couldn't remember how I got here, almost like the same with the dream I had. Wait! I had a dream like this, didn't I? Why do I feel like I'm missing things about it than? I growled in frustration, but stopped when I felt a presence behind me.
"(Y/n), I'm glad your awake," said a wicked voice behind me. I slowly turn around revealing a man, who seemed to be half human, and half shadow. My eyes widen in fea
Ice bucket challenge (Zachary QuintoXSister!Reader
Cold is all you felt after your older brother poured a bucket of ice cold water over your head for the ALS ice bucket challenge. You let out a shriek when you felt ice down your top and stood up to get it out. Zachary went over to the camera and looked at you sheepishly.
"I forgot to hit record" He said making you glare at him.
"Idiot" You replied ringing out your hair.
"I'll go get more ice" Zachary chuckled before going back into his house with the large bucket. Glaring after him you went in and got another pair of clothes on before going back out to wait. When he came back out he rolled his eyes seeing you changed.
"Why change you're just gonna get wet again?" He asked.
"I dont want to freeze so hurry up and hit record this time" You replied sitting back down on the wet chair. He nodded and pressed the record button before going behind you again.
"Hopefully this is recording and I wont have to do this again. I'd like to thank Hayden Panettiere for the nomination I accept the challen
Duplica's Tuff DemonstrationDuplica is a Pokémon trainer and an impressionist. She could imitate any Pokémon trainer and even some Pokémon! Not surprisingly, her 2 Pokémon are both Dittos, which have the ability to transform into any other Pokémon. Though the down side to this is that the face remains the same. But, after some hard training, her Dittos finally learn to change their faces as well. Crowds of people ask for her and the Dittos to change what they want. However, on one day, Duplica gets a little more than she bargained for on 1 transformation.
Duplica was taking her usual lunch break with her Pokémon.
Duplica: *sighs with exhaustion* "Man, changing appearances wears you out."
Both Ditto nodded in agreement.
Duplica: *smiles* "But as long as the people are happy, that's all that matters. Right, guys?"
The Dittos smiled and hugged her.
Duplica: "No matter what happens, we'll always find a way to please the crowd."
When they finished their break, the trio went back to work.
Signs and Symbols& came rushing in.
“I’m so happy & excited & ecstatic &, &, &…”
“Yes, OK—don’t get yourself in a twist,” said [. “What’s going on?”
“My friend’s got us tickets to @’s concert tonight! @!” & gazed off into the distance. “He’s so dreamy…”
[ snorted. “He’s ancient. He hasn’t always been an email megastar—I can still remember him from when he was pricing petunias.”
“Oh, yeah.” & sighed and smiled. “I love his early typewriter stuff too: ‘Pansies @ 50p for 10. Ask to see a catalogue for further details…’”
“You really have got it bad,” said [.

Set Up (David AndersXReader)
It was a bright sunny day and you were at the beach with your best friend Leah (If your name is Leah pick another name) chilling on a towel under a large umbrella (dunno if they have an official name). Looking around you saw your friend scoping out guys still trying to find you a boyfriend.
"Leah can you stop trying to hook me up with a guy?" You asked.
"No! Its been over a year since (ex's name) broke up with you and you need to get back out there" Leah shook her head. You rolled your eyes at her and adjusted your sunglasses before you heard her gasp. Looking over you saw her grinning and instantly knew she was planning something.
"Lets go swim" She said dragging you to stand up.
"Leaaaaaaah" You whined letting her drag you towards the ocean. Leah just smirked and before you reached the ocean she pushed you into a guy who had been pushed towards you by his friend ending up with both of you on the sand with you on top.
"Oh god I'm so sorry" The man apologized.
"No I'm sorry must'

Mammoth Mutt's exploration inflationMammoth Mutt was just roaming around with crew of the Dog Stars' ship, wanting to see how the universe was created, and also she wanted to explore unexplored parts of the universe and live to tell the tale.
She didn't want to be disobedient to herself or her fellow comrades, but she wanted to do what she wanted to. She then went out with her spacesuit and helmet. Mammoth Mutt used the ship as a beacon in case she's had enough. She started to drift outwards toward a galaxy and began to inflate herself bigger and bigger.
Mammoth Mutt: Definitely worth exploring!
Mammoth Mutt kept expanding as she is the size of a planet and still getting bigger. She is knowing that her body is a universe that is created by a rush of air rather than a Big Bang. Enjoying it, she is rapidly getting bigger and bigger. She is now the size of a galaxy, but she's just getting started. She really expanded tons and tons of air, and after a considerable amount of time, Mammoth Mutt is the size of a universe.

The beautiful building stood three stories high, the Gothic structure adding to it's beauty. The gargoyles stood on the dark roof, the high windows shining in the morning light.

Lincoln LogsLincoln Logs, she said.
You dont like them?
She smoothed out the wrapping paper on her lap and frowned. I asked for that poetry book. You know, the one with the picture of the tree on the front?
And I had planned on getting it for her until I saw the little sticker with the price on the back.
You cant build a house out of poetry, I said.
She burst into tears, and I got the feeling it was the wrong thing to say.
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
