Grasping Liquid - Part EightBadger could hardly even remember how he'd got back up to the room. Only it must have involved some fast running, even for him. Because one moment he'd been watching Crow and Umid kiss each other and seemingly the next thing he knew he was lying face down on the bed, crying his eyes out.Grasping Liquid - Part Eight by SamCyberCat
He was so upset and angry that he even ended up biting down on the sheets to block out the ugly sounds from his mouth. Although he knew he wouldn't damage them, getting the sheets all soggy like that did make him feel bad. He'd have to make it up to them for this later...
What did Badger owe these people? These strangers who had taken Crow away and made their leader feel more like one of them than one of the Black Ravens. It wasn't fair!
But even thinking like that wasn't fair. Badger couldn't blame the kindly old Margaret or her granddaughter because they'd let Crow have a place to stay. He couldn't blame Umid for probably being more able to talk about his feelings for Crow than Badge
Gift Box“It's good to meet with old friends again after so long.”Gift Box by SamCyberCat
Layton only wished that he could share that sentiment with Aldus. Which wasn't to say that happening across the friendly man hadn't been a nice surprise, but the recent years had brought him little more than misery in regards to being reunited with other old faces. First Randall, then Desmond and most recently Claire... These events had hardly brought only the happiest times for him.
Of course, it was Layton's nature to shelve his worries and carry on. But his shelf had started to become a bit too loaded to bear as of late.
When a few moments went by without any response from the Professor, Aldus pressed on; “I get the impression that whatever's troubling you will take more than just tea to cure.”
“Nonsense,” replied Layton, as he delicately grasped the handle of his cup, “There's nothing that a good cup of tea won't help soothe.”
“I'd like to think so,” Aldus doubtfull
Grasping Liquid - Part SevenThe train journey back to Misthallery went as uncomfortably as could be expected when one of their party wasn't talking at all. The other three had managed to catch up with Crow, but he'd remained silent the whole time and simply trudged along with the rest of them to the train station. Once they'd got on the move he'd stared at fixed points in the walls or floor for the entirety of the journey and never made eye-contact with his friends.Grasping Liquid - Part Seven by SamCyberCat
This is turn made the rest of them feel unwilling to even talk to each other and had resulted in what felt like the longest train journey ever.
Although the lack of noise seemed like a bit of an agitation to Louis, Badger and Gus actually didn't mind it so much. It was just a shame that it was also filled with the worry of what was going on with Crow. Each of them wanted him to speak up, even once, so they'd know where they stood right now.
But he didn't.
Badger had so much that he wanted to say to Crow. He wished that he could reassure their leader t
28th November 2014: A couple of group things for anyone who might be interested. Firstly, my friend is looking for a new founder to take over this group, if anyone's interested:
And secondly I've opened a new group for the Sunset Shimmer x Twilight Sparkle ship. I'm not sure if any of my followers are into MLP, but after seeing Rainbow Rocks it made me sad not to find a proper group for these two. Please consider joining if you like the ship:
Katia & Sophia
Cogg & Spring
Crow & Black Ravens
Lucille & Roland
I am happy for my work to be featured in most groups that ask. However I do NOT want my work to be featured in anti groups (i.e. groups against a certain character, series or pairing) or groups that have anti-yaoi/yuri/het rules (or other rules in favour of prejudice). Thank you for understanding.
Please ask before taking any of my work to post on other websites. This includes for use on Tumblr. I have my own account there and would prefer to post my work myself. If there's anything here that you particularly want me to post on Tumblr then let me know and I will, since most of my older stuff isn't posted there.
Also, I work away from home without Internet access from Friday-Monday almost every week. So I probably won't be around to answer messages during that time.

These may be posted openly anywhere on my submissions, journals or in conversations in the comments section. So please tread with caution if you're avoiding spoilers for any of the games.
