Bad Magick: Prologue."What is it?"
"A letter, obviously! I mean, it's in an envelope for Gods' sake! What else gets sent in envelopes?"
"The severed hands of Vackovian mob enforcers?"
"...Thanks for that, Jack."
"B-But I bet it is a letter! And why would anyone send us a letter other than for a job?"
"To tell us to send you home. Is that a trick question?"
"Let's just read it, Eric. Maybe it isn't about Zane this time."
"If you really think that..."
"Hey! I've been pretty helpful for the last while! I even saved a cat from a tree-- How do you slow-clap while lighting a cigarette!?"
"Years of practice..."
"Can we read it now, please?!"
"Hold on, I have to open it first."
"What's taking so long?"
"Bloody thing... Won't... Tear..."
"Super-durable paper so nothing gets ripped in transition. Vackovians never do thugs half way."
"That's a great theory, except that the letter's from Natruvia. Remember?"
"Got it! 'To whom it may concern. I am in need of a small team of mercenaries--"
Explorer's DictationSeveral years ago, I took a short trip to Arne, the jungle-continent to the south-east of Vacko. I wasn't technically allowed to go in past the beaches, of course; the natives are very protective of their secrets and very few people alive today are allowed past the edge of the jungle. This wasn't a problem to most explorers of course; the jungles are extremely dangerous in any case and the only completely extirpated animal on Arne is the Jungle Dragons, which were only recently added to the Book of Knowledge but have been in existence for millennia. I have also heard recently that a group of Wyrms, the dangerous subterranean sentient creatures that are a threat to the entire planet, had taken up residence underneath the jungle itself, and only a small colony of Wyverns were keeping them from wreaking havoc across the entire island (though I later found this to be a falsehood).
I must admit, the appeal of the mysterious, mystic jungle, with its beautiful by all these dangers.
JackThe birth was premature by about a month. The newborn's parents hadn't even picked out a name yet. The rest of the small town had dozens of inventively named children: Vae, Oran, Tru, Vatega, even Areavaenu, but the only thing they'd been able to come up with on such short notice was 'Jack'. Considering their last name was 'Smith', another common name, this was probably for the best. If their last name had been Ortheaea, like Vatega's had been, they would have been at a loss for names. Jack Smith had a nice feel to it.
Of course, the other kids didn't see it that way. Even at the age of five, he was already a pariah, staying away from any sort of event where he was likely to meet other people. Even when he was forced to come outfor town meetings, for school, for his own birthday parties that his parents hosted in an attempt to make him more socialmore often than not he stayed as far as he could away from the other kids and read a book. He grew up fairly fit, running at nigh
YdoolbThe boy set his music player down and knelt next to the dead squirrel quietly. Only second ago, the squirrel had been sitting on a tree branch a few meters above, but a hummed word from the small child had stunned it, causing it to release its grip on the tree and fall to the ground below. Another word had made sure it was dead. The boy smiled faintly, listening to the opera flowing out of the music player. The player was waterproof, of course. After the first time, when he'd gotten blood on it and been unable to wash it off without shorting the thing out, he'd bought the new, waterproof version. He'd thrown the old one in a lake. On the bright side, he'd gotten to see all those electrocuted fish rise to the surface, their eyes cold and staring
He turned back to the squirrel, carefully pulling his bloodstained scalpel from the front pocket of his jacket. It looked like a pen, with its blade down and the capped end sticking up into the air, and that was how he'd been able to get i
Hetalia: Italy x Reader x Romano- Start~!Hetalia: Italy x Reader x Romano
Because of an Italian restaurant~
(There will be a split story on whether you choose Italy or Romano~
EDIT: You can now have another story where you choose both!!)
You sighed as you sat down on a soft, white chair in an Italian restaurant. Even though this was your favourite restaurant, you felt a bit sick. It was probably because everyone around you had a special someone to spend Valentines' with.
You looked around at the happy couples, the air wasn't the same as it usually was... it was more... lovey. You didn't mind couples, of course, but when they take their time smothering it in your single face - you get really irritated. You just have to tolerate this day and then enjoy 364 days where they won't show off as much.
"Can I-a take your order~?" A waiter said, his italian accent strong. He had reddish brown hair with a curl sticking out near his ears, he also had sweet, kind brown eyes.
"Er.. Yeah," You said, a
Hetalia: Romano x Reader: (1/2) Texts and CallsHetalia Romano x Reader.
Because of an Italian Restaurant.
Texts and Calls.
A/N: Don't forget to read the beginning~!! The link to the start is also down in the description~!
You opened the neatly folded up note, it was from that Italian waiter called Lovino. You stared at the paper, it read:
Ciao, this is Lovino.
I saw you sitting alone today and I was wondering if maybe, if you want to, you'd like to hang out with me sometime. If you don't mind that is. I don't really care. But if you want to, I'd go. Here is my number, just call me if you'd like.
- Lovino XXX/XXXX/XXXX
Your heart fluttered, he just asked you out! As you stared at the piece of paper, you felt your face warming up.
"____?" Lovino's grandpa said, "Are-a you alright? You look a bit-a red.."
"Y-yes! I-i am fine!" You said awkwardly laughing. "Thank you for the delicious meal!! I'll be going now, bye!" you waved goodbye, standing up and tucking your chair
EnglandxReader X-box Live part1 England sighed. America had won a bet, so now England had to play Halo Reach and some other various games on X-box Live. America made him start off with Halo Reach. America wanted to see him be humiliated for being a noob. Meanwhile, you were about to turn on Halo Reach. You played ALL the time! You only ever played as an elite though, because aliens are awesome!
You wanted to level up some more, so that you had more than the flaming helmet to show off your stuff. Your favorite weapons, were the Energy sword, the rocket launcher, the fuel-rod gun, and a few other pyrotechnical weapons(plasma grenades and other explosive stuff). You entered *the matchmaking lobby. You got a person with the file name Arthur111, on your team. "Not a very inspired file name." you thought, noticing he had not yet earned any ranks. The person had a mic in, but wasn't talking with the jumble of trolls on the rest of the team.
EnglandxReader X-box Live part2 The next day, England was online as soon as he could be. As were you. You sent simultaneous invites, causing each other to laugh. "So, what map do you have picked out?" England asked, rather happily. "Well, I downloaded a carnival map. Basically you just have fun, there's not really any goal.", you said, just now realizing his British accent. You set the game mode and map.
"GAME START". You gave England a tour of the map. "See, here's the mini-race, and there's the bounce-house, and there's the shooting range, WAY over there is the two slides, and right here is the bumper-carts.", you said, then promptly taking a deep breath after the mouth-full of words. The first thing England did was go over to the bumper-carts. You hopped into the ghost on the other side. "1, 2, 3, GO!!!!!", you narrated. You shot off of the platform, plowing straight through England's ghost, leaving him standing next to the engine of his vehicle, which wa

There is no swearing in here - just two naughty words a certain Englishman would say..
You sat in the cold rain, on a bench which belonged to the deserted town park, clutching your phone to your chest. You had texted and left a voice message for Alfred to meet you there, so you could finally confess; you have liked that loud American for a long while now, you just wanted to say how you felt and how you wanted to be more than friends. However, it has been about two hours since the arranged meeting time, where was he?
The weather forecast said nothing about rain, so you wore your casual clothes. But now, those clothes were soaked and your make up had run off your cheeks, leaving noticeable lines and marks. However, you still didn't move from your place. There was a chance Alfred had misplaced the keys to his car, woke

Little Miss It“Do you enjoy her company?”
That, Avadaci concluded, had been the extent of his grandfather’s kindness. Thank the stars he had broken his neck after a failed attempt to ascend the castle staircase. Not that many were privy to this information. The official listing on the cause of death involved something along the lines of falling in battle after slaying at least a dozen demons, although this was treated with quite a bit of skepticism by the general populace. Yet, interestingly enough, a decent portion of the locals believed a tale about the cannibals of Unkhtom devouring him whole.
Not that Avadaci really cared how his grandfather had died. He was just glad he was dead. And if he was glad his grandfather had died, Avadaci wondered, why did he have to attend his funeral? In fact, the whole kingdom was glad his grandfather had died. Why did they have to attend the funeral?
“Oh Avad,” proclaimed his mother, “obv
