AT-For the BetterMarshall gazed down at the small and chubby figure before him. The body was tucked all around with blankets and its fragile head laid peacefully against the mattress. It was weird for Marshall to think that he was a father to the thing in the crib he hovered in front of. To the creature who resembled and acted like a potato.
The vampire felt his feet touch the ground as he watched over the sleeping infant. Its dark blonde curls boarded his son's face and he was mixed between feeling repulsed and awestruck by the child. It was something he made. It was a piece of him. His and Fionna's legacy.
Beneath the closed eyelids were sparkling blue orbs that had red running through here and there. A reminder that he wasn't fully human nor was he fully a vampire. It was hard to fathom that he wasn't even in his life that time last year. That last year, he was just a man living life with the love of his life and then bam, this thing came along. This parasite that would one day call him 'daddy.'
Teen Titans-Step, Clack, Scuffle, DragStep, clack, scuffle, drag. Those were the noises Jinx got most familiar with in her life. Step, clack, scuffle, drag...
With each step she took, the sound went from disgusting to comforting to her. Before the Hive Five, and before she ever really learned first walk. It was always that particular sound to her.
Step, clack, scuffle, drag as she ran through life blindly, going from one extreme to the next. And not far behind, life seemed to call to her, yet she had always ignored the sing song voice that she felt mocked her on her life's journey.
Then again, Jinx never had been one to look back at past mistakes, thrills, and joys. It was all about the future. It didn't matter which road she took or how long it would take, she just needed to get somewhere. Anywhere.
Step, clack, scuffle, drag.
First it was pick pocketing in the streets as a starving young girl. Jinx recalled how her ribs peeked through her clothing and how frail she had been. The only food source was from stealing or mooc
Code Lyoko: CrumbleWhat once was barren wasteland was now nothing but a rotting, digital sea. With time, the ground would crack and crumble, falling to the mass pit of nothing below to be lost forever.
Staring out at the vast nothingness, Aelita looked in the direction that would have been the Mountain Sector, but knew it was gone. All gone. She could easily turn to look to where the Forest and Ice Sectors would be, but knew they had been disintegrated long ago.
The pink haired girl took a step back, her eyes dipping down to where she had stood and watched as the ground crumbled and fell into the digital sea, never to be seen again, just like the rest of Lyoko.
The girl continued to play that game of standing and stepping away in time for the ground to crumble away. She stared at the sky, her eyes roaming the air as though searching for an answer.
'They'll come for me,' she thought. But she knew they wouldn't. Odd, Yumi and Ulrich had been defeated in battle and dropped to the digital sea. She waited for
Each step felt like there was lead in Donatello's feet. Of course that wasn't the case, but despite what people expected of him, Donatello had a hard time waking up in the morning.
The bathroom he and his brothers shared came into view and the mutant smiled and yawned. He could already hear his brothers in the bathroom as they did their daily morning routine.
The tallest of the ninjas stepped in, feeling the cold tile on his bare feet. Raphael was busy applying an Avon product onto his arm as Michelangelo finished brushing his teeth and reached for some floss. Leonardo grabbed a green towel and prepared to take a shower.
Donatello sighed. Perhaps it was his OCD, but he enjoyed the routine. Waking up, greeting his brothers, getting ready for the day...it was a soothing process that eased Donatello's nerves and stresses that might come up throughout the day.
Soft pitter patter of feet could be heard heading towards the bathroom. A petite figure walked in and stood in front of the sink. D
TMNT-NamelessLush trees flew by as the old family van drove up a bumpy dirt road on the outskirts of New York City. Reed Daniel watched the green blur by, resting his cheek on his hand and his elbow against the window.
He didn't understand why he had to come along with his mother to this old house. Sure his grandmother's death was important to him, but he didn't really know the woman personally. He used to when he was younger, but after getting sucked into school and other activities, he didn't have much time to visit. And frankly, he didn't have much interest. What did an old lady have for him to be entertained by?
The old farmhouse came into view and his mother parked the car under the shade of a tree. She looked over at him. Her curly red hair had been tied neatly into a loose bun and her red brown eyes smiled down on him.
He turned from her, opened the door and stepped out, letting the door shut with a loud 'thud!' Reed had forgotten how nice it was up in the country side. He was always cooped
The ABCs of Leon: L is for LighthouseL is for the lighthouses she had seen in photographs, magazines, and books she often looked at in bookstores when she grew up. There had always been something haunting about them, something beautiful people often overlooked.
Mathilda recalled how the lighthouses could be built in the 1800s and still stand today just as strong as they had before. It didn't matter the weather, didn't matter what nature threw at it, and time meant nothing to the never aging stone. It was incredible, she never could understand how structures like a simple lighthouse could withstand time and nature when buildings down the street were being destroyed every day.
When she met Léon, he resembled a lighthouse to her the more she got to know him. His eyes were always far away, gazing upon some horizon that Mathilda wished she could see but knew she'd never be able to, like sleeping with one eye open, she supposed. It was always to stay focused, to get the job done. No questions, no thoughts, just work.
TMNT-Raph Meets His Match: 1. What Could Go Wrong?
Most days the whispering didn't bother April at all, but there was something about that day that just...got to her. She tried tuning out the hushed voices of prom, dates, other social stuff April honestly couldn't care less about...and then there was Mona Lisa.
April rolled her eyes and slammed her locker shut, wincing at the loud noise it created. Lisa Addams was probably the most popular girl in school, and even though her popularity didn't necessarily bug April, it was the fact that Lisa was such a snob about the art she created and how she STILL managed to maintain not just good grades but to ALSO beat April in the science fair back in middle school.
The bell rang and April nearly jumped out of her skin. She hissed in air and grabbed her book bag from the ground and turned to walk to class. Before she could, April skidded to a stop and nearly gave herself whiplash from turning around so fast.
Speak of the devil and the devil shall appear, April supposed. Lisa had been walking down

Shoutout Fridays (5)Last Journal Entry:
My deviantART StorySo since this is a bandwagon and I'm all about jumping on those I too am going to talk about my experience on dA. Well let's see I've been here for... (checks real quick) 5 years, holy crap! When was the last time I checked that thing? But see that's not very accurate cause I remember having other older accounts. And holy crap has dA really been around for 14 frickin' years?? Yeesh! I remember when I was 14. I hated it. Hope dA doesn't start getting zits and hormonal problems as I once did.
Kiss it BetterRaphael had been an exceptional skateboarder in his youth, and even though he had given it up since becoming a young adult, Raphael still delighted in watching his six year old niece push herself around the old drainage junction on what was once his board. As Maggie had been taking skateboarding lessons from Michelangelo for the past year, she had all the basic covered, but wasn't ready for the more advanced moves yet, so when she tried them, that is when she would fail.
Mirrors: New Beginnings A few days later, April and Donnie's daughter Maggie found out that her mother died in front of her father's grave. It was devastating to hear but she knew her mother was happy again. She never made a huge fuss about it.

TMNT - Monster I Have Become (Part 1):
TMNT - A Pleasant Surprise
TMNT: Changes (Request)Man…everything has changed so much. The guys, the girls, my nieces and daughter…heck, my whole life has changed. I can barely remember the time I was a human anymore since I started living with the guys. It’s crazy. I do remember the fire, though. That memory still haunts me every waking day and I tear up just thinking about it.
Some Things Never Change “Daddy, up!” Miwa exclaimed as she raised her hands to her father. He happily obliged her wish, throwing her up in the air before holding her safely. The four year old laughed, beaming up at him, and if that wasn’t reward enough, she planted a kiss on his cheek. Her eye sparkled with excitement, with that innocent joy that only a child could have.
Tmnt-Ole!The guys were sitting in the living room, relaxing. They were all watching the girls while April and Karai were shopping and Splinter was scavenging for useful items. They all sighed as the girls ran around. “Be careful girls! Watch out for the vases and glasses! Maggie! Don’t jump over the coffee table! Miwa!!! Please don’t draw on the walls!” Donnie said. The guys snickered at Donnie’s mothering. When Donnie sat back down a taco commercial came on with a Mexican guy in a hat. When the commercial was over everyone turned to Leo. “Hey Leo, I dare you to dress up like a Mexican and serve tacos to us” Raph said with a smirk. They all turned to Leo. “Fine…” he said as he trudged to his old room. He put on a poncho and a sombrero. He walked in with a sad face. The girls walked up to him with a smile. “Daddy you forgot your mustache!” Miwa said. “And your maracas!” Maggie added. Donnie beamed at his daughte:: :thumb318507918:
Snowfilled WishesHamato Magdalene was shocked when her mother told her who she would be staying with. She knew her mother really meant who was going to babysit her, which didn’t make any sense since she was a whole seven years old now. She could watch after herself now. She was a kunoichi...at least, one in training. And it wasn’t like anything could happen to her. Nothing exciting ever happened at the old farmhouse. And on the possibility that something did happen, all she had to do was travel the tunnel that her dad had dug to her uncles and grandfather.:thumb366401779:
TMNT: A Day with Ember (Request)It was a bright sunny day at April and Donatello’s farmhouse. They had to leave to go somewhere and needed a babysitter for their 6-year-old daughter Magdalene, but pretty much everyone was busy. Then Donnie thought of someone.:thumb286670397: :thumb253135058: :thumb204411473: :thumb254882943:
TMNT-Disaster in Paradise: Chapter 1April sliced at the carrot she gingerly held to the wood she used to cut vegetables on. Her hair blew a tad from the breeze of the wind that snuck through an open window. Soon, it would be autumn and too cold to keep the window open.
It was one of those quiet days in the house she and Donnie owned. It amazed her that it had been six years since they had fallen in love, five of those spent as parents...
She was now twenty-four years old, and she had been working for years towards her goal of one day being a journalist for the world of scientist. It was a struggle, but she knew with the support of her family, friends, and daughter, one day that goal would become a reality.
April finished cutting the carrot and brushed it into a pile for the stew she was making. She wiped at her brow as she heard footsteps walk into the room and smiled, recognizing the familiar stride of her husband.
April opened a cupboard to reveal a stack of plates and cups. "Hey, honey, dinner is almost done," she sai
TMNT-Raphael Meets His Match: Prologue
She ruled the streets of New York City and the hallways of Roosevelt High with nothing but a knowing look and the sway of her hips. To the unknowing, she was just another teenage girl. But to those who knew better, she was the face of the future.
Her name was Lisa Addams, but she was better known as Mona Lisa for her love of fashion and art. As beautiful as she was intelligent, it honestly seemed as though that girl could do anything she put her mind to it.
President of the student body and art fanatic, she graced each student with her presence in a way that could make anyone hate to love her. She had no time for wasted moments and spat on small talk. How could anyone put up with that when there's so much to do?
She was the image of true beauty, an image that life would never fall apart as long as someone as strong, powerful, and devious as her continued their unspoken rule over the land. But even Rome fell eventually.
It was hard to image the hallways without Lisa strutting down the m
TMNT Return to the Sewers: Chapter 1-Darkness“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
They were winning. They were finally winning. The bodies of the Foot Clan were scattered here and there. Alive? Dead? The mutants didn’t know, but all they cared about was the fact that they were finally winning this war.
Adrenaline pumped through the four turtle brothers as they dashed here and there, taking down clan members when they could and progressing more and more into the Shredder’s lair.
“This is too easy!”
“Don’t speak too soon, Raph. It’s just the beginning.” Leo replied to his brother as he drove his sword into another clan member. The red bandana wearing mutant could only scoff.
“We’ve been fighting for a good hour or so. I say we’re making great progress.” Another member down to the hands of the turtles’ weapons. They had progressed many floors of th
