"Lullaby"

By: Nickelback

I know the feeling,
Of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge,
And there ain't no healing,
From cutting yourself with the jagged edge.
I'm telling you that, it's never that bad,
Take it from someone who's been where you're at.
Laid out on the floor, and you're not sure,
You can take this anymore.

So just give it one more try to a lullaby,
And turn this up on the radio.
If you can hear me now, I'm reaching out,
To let you know that you're not alone.
And if you can't tell, I'm scared as hell,
'Cause I can't get you on the telephone,
So just close your eyes,
Well honey here comes a lullaby,
Your very own lullaby.

Please let me take you,
Out of the darkness and into the light.
'Cause I have faith in you,
You're gonna make it through another night.
Stop thinking about the easy way out,
There's no need to go and blow the candle out.
Because you're not done,
You're far too young, and the best is yet to come.

So just give it one more try to a lullaby,
And turn this up on the radio.
If you can hear me now, I'm reaching out,
To let you know that you're not alone.
And if you can't tell, I'm scared as hell,
'Cause I can't get you on the telephone,
So just close your eyes,
Well honey here comes a lullaby,
Your very own lullaby.

Everybody's hit the bottom,
And everybody's been forgotten,
And everybody's tired of being alone.
Everybody's been abandoned,
And left a little empty-handed,
So if you're out there barely hanging on...

So just give it one more try to a lullaby,
And turn this up on the radio.
If you can hear me now, I'm reaching out,
To let you know that you're not alone.
And if you can't tell, I'm scared as hell,
'Cause I can't get you on the telephone,
So just close your eyes,
Well honey here comes a lullaby,
Your very own lullaby.

:iconrainbowheartplz1::iconrainbowheartplz2::iconrainbowheartplz3::iconrainbowheartplz1::iconrainbowheartplz2::iconrainbowheartplz3::iconrainbowheartplz1::iconrainbowheartplz2::iconrainbowheartplz3:

Ah, I said it on her birthday gifts but, I just had to write a journal for her.

That...and I've not written a journal in months X_X I need to fix that stamp I see.  Anyway.

Today is my little sister, :icongemzybabee:'s birthday!  Before you ask no, she's not an actual blood related sister, but she might as well be.  I will call her my sister for the rest of my life.  She has to be the most awesome, and amazing person I've ever been fortunate to know.  Fortunate kinda falls short.

I met her way back in 2009 here on dA. She was interested in my stories then, and we started off just talking about the characters.  She was a budding artist at the time, and drew my characters for me, along with designing some for me as well.  I had never met someone that was that into my characters and stories, as much as I was, and she was so incredibly nice and sweet.

Cue late 2010.  Her art had jumped leaps and bounds in that short time.  She designed her character Ophelia Spades.  We got talking about how similar she and UnDark were.  A few pictures later, we were both hooked.  Though I had established UnDark was meant to die at the end of WoLaD and would never have the capacity for love, she made it work.  They're a special couple for us, because that's where the roleplaying got started.

During the next few months we RPed them in comments here on dA, and even hooked up my Guardian Kalak with one she designed, Auroura.

Come June of that year, I downloaded MSN again, having not used it in ages, and we started our roleplay.  That was probably the biggest and most amazing change in my life for a very long time.  It was in 2011, so time had passed after I had gone through some heavy emotional turmoil.  I just...I had no idea what blessing I had been given that day.

Since then, we've spoken every day without fail, short of a few days where one of us was either sick or just unable to get to the computer.  She lives in Scotland, I'm on the East Coast of the USA, North Carolina.  There's five hours difference but we make it work.  Sometimes we're up late talking, others she'll get off early and later message me and we'll talk some more.  It's just been...an amazing ride.

We've come so far.  Through everything, together.  I've got my parents who drive me crazy sometimes, and I struggle with having basically no life, and she always keeps me encouraged, reminding me one day we will get to hang out together and all of this will seem so far away.  It's not been the easiest time.  She's had far more troubles than me, although, she'll play it off.  She's just so strong.  I wish I could be as strong as she is really.  She helps take care of her mother.  She works so hard to earn money for herself.  She goes to college and I couldn't be more proud of her.  She's had people that have just treated her like crap, and I cannot tell you how relieved and proud I've been every time she rises above them and moves forward.  The worst days I have are when all I can do is sit here helpless, unable to just...smack these people that are hurting her.  She understands, but I'm not here to talk about the troubles she's had.

I only bring them up to show all of you, and remind her, just how amazing she is.

Gem, little sis, you've risen above those people that hurt you.   You are so strong, and dedicated, and talented and smart, and I am just so proud of you.  I know your family, your mum, dad and brother, and the friends that have stood by you, not hurt you, would agree with me.  I personally cannot wait to get over there so we can have all the fun in the world.  Until then, about all I can do is things like this, and doing art and literature for you every day.

Your artwork has just...gone above and beyond.  I remember when you'd draw me little pictures in MS Paint.  My goodness...your art is BEAUTIFUL.  It's breath-taking.  You've come so far in such a short time.  I know I've improved too but, you really and truly have.  You inspire me.  You always inspire me.  You've taken me to places I never thought possible.  Don't ever forget how amazing your talent is.  Ever.

As for the rest...you give me a reason to get up and be optimistic every day.  We've always got something to talk about, whether it's our characters, something funny on Youtube, or Five Night's at Freddy's lol  We think alike, and have long distance ESP.  We played Animal Crossing New Leaf together and I've got villagers of yours that sing your town tune and it just makes me grin when they talk about Niena and Amelia from Laputa. There's times when things get heavy and we just talk about what's bothering us.  I know I've told you things I've never told anyone else.  You keep my confidences.  You help get me through the bullshit when nobody else will listen.

That is why I will ALWAYS call you my sister. You're hard on me the few times you've needed to me, like a slap to the face to bring me to my senses, and I've had to do the same at times, but we always get through it.  The two or three times I think we've had a small fall out, it never lasts more than a few hours.  Frankly, if I feel I've upset you I just...go nuts until I've made it right.   It's because I'd never want to lose, or hurt such an amazing friend.

...that and life is already hard enough lol

To all of you reading this, Gem is the most amazing friend, and a damn good artist please check out her page if you haven't.  She really deserves more page views, faves, and comments.  I just want her to know how awesome her art is...like any of us she's her own worst critic but I won't have it XP

Little sis, I want to wish you the most amazing and happy birthday ever.  I know my gifts to you aren't as amazing as the new tablet you're getting (yay! X3) but I wanted to do something special just for you.  Hopefully next year we can actually go out on the town for your birthday together XP You've earned it.  Thank you so so much for always being there for me and being the best little sister I could ever ask for :heart:

RP Anniversary: Charlotte and Reila by ReverseTheEclipse
RP Anniversary: Charlotte and Reila
Next up for December!!

Sketched on paper, flat color in SAI. Next picture in a series I'm doing, drawing the kids from mine and Gem's RP a year to the day they were first used, got it? Good!

I say first used. This will be the case MOST of the time. There are a few instances where the kids are born and it's stated they're born, but for one reason or another they aren't used until a later day. If that happens I'll be posting them on the day they are BORN. If they're used the first time on a different day then I'll state that in the description, or on the picture itself.

Bio time!!

Full name: Charlotte Owens
Parents: Reala and Collette Owens
Grandparents: Caleb and Frieda Owens
Siblings: Older brothers Ryuji and Soren and older sisters Satomi and Mae (quadruplets), and younger twin brother, Reila
Cousins: Riko, Koamakani, Emmikai, Athurn, Alicia, and Mitsuki
Other family: Uncles Errikos and Aunt Casselina, Uncle Theodore and Aunt Michelle

Full name: Reila Owens
Parents: Reala and Collette Owens
Grandparents: Caleb and Frieda Owens
Siblings: Older brothers Ryuji and Soren and older sisters Satomi and Mae (quadruplets), and older twin sister, Charlotte
Cousins: Riko, Koamakani, Emmikai, Athurn, Alicia, and Mitsuki
Other family: Uncles Errikos and Aunt Casselina, Uncle Theodore and Aunt Michelle

RPed by: Me (ReverseTheEclipse)
First used: RP 929

First used the same day they're born <3

Charlotte and Reila are the fifth and six babies that Reala and Collette have, continuing their little streak of having a litter each time Collette's pregnant.  It's worth noting Collette is once again pregnant, but it's looking like just one this time XP Reala's convinced she's supposed to have more than one every time lol

Anyway, the way it works is they get a scan and can only see Reila, so they're told they're expecting a boy.  Little Charlotte, is hiding underneath her brother, so when Collette is giving birth and a little girl pops out, Reala in his innocent doesn't understand.  He simply comments that "Reila" has "what girls do" and it's enough to make Collette giggle a little when she realizes there's still another baby in her.  After this, little Reila is finally born.  They name his big sister Charlotte, to go with Collette's name.

It's rather cute XD The story behind that comes from when I designed Reila.  I did him first, but kept thinking his design would look nice on a girl too.  The picture in question is here:

Reila and Charlotte Sketch by ReverseTheEclipse

With Collette I added the extra hair at the back and changed the angle of the top quill behind the ear.  They're considered identical twins having the same coloring and markings, right down to eye color, although Reila's is the dark red shade Ryuji's are, coming from a darkening of their mother's eyes, while Charlotte's is the same shade as her mother's, like her big sister Satomi.

Personality wise Charlotte is a polite girl, although when she gets older, like Collette she's got no problem speaking her mind, although she's good at controlling her tongue.  The only time she'll really get in a debate with someone is if it's over she strongly believes in, or if she's taking up for her siblings, particularly Reila, or her big sister, Mae.  She's close to Reala for this reason, since Reala always has something extra with Mae, who was small being the tiny baby in her litter, and is always the shortest growing up despite catching up.  She and Charlotte are very close.  She also learns Italian, since Collette taught herself the language after visiting Italy so much.

Personality wise Reila is a slightly shy, sweet little boy, with an innocent streak and a very sweet tooth, but coming from his father.  He loves climbing trees, and has a healthy curiosity for exploration, especially after his grandparents take him and his siblings and cousins on special expeditions around the world.  He also enjoys cooking, something he gets from Collette and how much she loves to cook.

Alright that does it for Charlotte and Reila! I'll see you in a few days for Dust!

Bio time!!

Full name: Baxter Dane
Parents: Nyota and April Dane
Grandparents: Maximilian Dane, Jason and Amber Williamson
Siblings: None yet XP

RPed by: Me (ReverseTheEclipse)
First used: RP 928

First used the same day he's born <3

Little Baxter is the son of Nyota and April Dane.  He's a first born, and as of now an...only born XD So you get a story with him.

April Dane is another girl working at Miles Taylor's laboratory, her specialty being in the animal preserve/hospital part of it.  She's somewhat shy, very gentle, and a sweet girl.  Her family is a bit tumultuous.  As you can tell by the description, her mother and father are divorced.  Her parents are both purebred dogs, something Maximilian takes pride in, and it comes back to bite his daughter April later.

This means he's completely and utterly disgusted when her mother, Amber, runs off with a feline, a man named Jason.  The family is quite rich, and Maximilian all but cuts Amber off completely, giving her the bare minimum required as part of their divorce.  April is already old enough to be on her own when this happens, and tries to remain neutral between both parents, but eventually she becomes completely on her mother's side.

This happens when Nyota enters the equation.

If you remember when I posted Athurn I mentioned his mother was a pro fighter in a certain league.  Nyota is a fighter in that same league.  He's entered by people that are using him just to when the money.  They're basically poachers, because Nyota is pretty much a wild animal, a feline.  After everything they've been through in regards to Latiro, let's just say Miles Taylor and his lab are very sensitive in regards to wild "animals" being used in such a way, the term animals being used loosely, because these creatures are just like them, just raised in the wild like Latiro, or made feral, like Nyota.

So they go in and rescue Nyota, bringing him to the lab and nature preserve.  He's injured, but they have to keep him sedated while they keep him there at first since he's just so aggressive, his entire mindset revolving around fighting, something his owners pretty much hardwired him to do.  Just when they're pondering the ethics of keeping him there after he's recovered, something happens.

Everyone starts to notice Nyota's attention on the girl April.  He's at his calmest moments when she's nearby, and so her presence has a big effect on their treatment of his injuries.  As he recovers, he starts to follow her around, and no longer tries to escape the preserve.  It doesn't take long for them to figure out what his fascination with her is.  He's quite simply...picked a mate XD It makes April shy at first, but after spending so much time with Nyota she starts to become comfortable around him.  She realizes he isn't much different from her, he just doesn't speak in words, although he does learn some later, and is very protective of her.

But you can probably guess this is how Baxter is conceived XD It's not a completely happy time.  April's father finds out and is outraged, because April's basically doing the same thing her mother did, mixing blood with a different species.  He's the kind that is against hybrids, at least in his own family.  It causes a lot of grief between them, but Nyota keeps April safe, and eventually Maximilian backs off, especially when Luke and Miles Taylor come together telling him to back off.  It's Luke especially that Maximilian knows he can't argue with, given his power trumps every cent to Mr. Dane's name.

This is how April becomes closest to her mother, the two of them both having found love with felines XD Nyota's wary of Jason at first but warms up to him, and the four are a closely knit family, even more so when little Baxter is born.

He's a feline and canine hybrid.  He gets a large part of his looks from his mother, the blond fur, the puppy ears, and her face, since Nyota has a white, furry face.  From his dad he gets his eye color, the blue hair and the shape of the fringe and longer hair at the back, as well as the kitty tail.  He can both bark, and purr, and Nyota teaches him things like how to hunt, but he's largely like his mother, able to speak and behaving like all of the other kids around him do.  He does adore his father though, following him around frequently.  He's got a tiny shy side, not as much as her mother does, and is just a very sweet little boy.

Make no mistake he will get a sibling...soon XP

That does it for Baxter! I'll see you tomorrow for Charlotte and Reila!

"The Warmth of Christmas"
By: Jade Lightning, a.k.a. ReverseTheEclipse

Christmas 2014

    This was the snowiest December this city had seen in years.  They were used to snow, they were prepared to live with it, but this was the most they had seen. It wasn't piling up in feet, as it melted between the snow flurries, but even if it didn't, most people didn't complain. After all, this most likely meant they would see a white Christmas this year.
    One girl in particular in this town, loved the snow, for everything it meant to her.
    Staring outside of a large, landscape window, a young echidna girl named Val was admiring the latest snowfall.  Christmas was only a few days away, and with how heavy the flakes her, she was almost completely certain it would still blanket the ground on that day to come.  This meant more to her than hearing it on the local weather report.  She was seeing it with her own eyes.
    She was never a big fan of being cold.  It was an all too frequent and bitter reality for her growing up, but lately, it bothered her just a little less.
    Hearing a train whistle in the distance, she giggled.  Trains.  They were another thing, along with the cold and snow, that made her happy today.
    This girl was standing in the middle of an apartment, near the top of the building it was situated in.  This wasn't her home.  She didn't even live on this side of town.  She couldn't see it, but her home lay in the opposite direction, on the other side of this place.  She thought about it briefly.  She wondered if the girls and Madame Mona were busy scraping up their spare change for their annual Christmas gift exchange.
    In the reflection of the window, she could make out the image of a giant Christmas tree behind her.  She had never seen one so big, not for a home.  It was so palatial and fancy compared to where she lived.

    Val lived in a home with many girls her age, some older, and others younger.  The woman in charge was a lady named Mona, and she was a madame.  However, she did not ask any of the girls living there to take part in the red-light district trade.  In fact, the few who did, volunteered, and only did so to earn money to support the other girls living there.  Mona instead took in girls that were lost on the street, hungry for food, either having run away from abusive homes, or abandoned by their families.
    The younger girls were all schooled and taught by Mona herself.  She'd help the other girls that weren't hooking try and find some kind of work.  When they weren't in school or working, they'd clean up around the large home they lived in.  They always had food to eat, even if it wasn't fancy, and even if it wasn't much.  They didn't starve, and they weren't living on the street, in danger of predators, and dying of exposure.
    Val was one of those girls.  Her parents were drug addicts.  Once, her mother even tried to trade Val for drugs.  Running away one night after this, Val lived alone.  She was a five-year-old on the streets, pawing through trash, begging for food, shivering in the cold at night.  That cold.  Still, it wasn't as bad as the scary glances from large men, or even nasty looking women.  Everyone frightened her.
    Mona came across her and extended comfort, and later trust was formed.  The girls living there became Val's friends.  They were the only family she had, and she didn't have to be afraid or freeze in the cold anymore.
    The past nine years had been pretty happy for her.  She didn't know what her future had in store, but nothing could be worse than what she had been through.
    Fate seemed to have dealt her a kind hand to make up for the cruelty of random chance and unwanted consequences of the actions of others that were forced upon her.
    And it all started on that day in the snow, getting jostled onto the wrong train.
    It started, when she was in a scarily familiar position of wandering around a city alone in the cold.
    
    That's when she met...Rin.

    Val giggled to herself, stepping back from the window.  For the past several weeks she had been living here.  She called Mona on the first night to explain, so she and the girls would know that Val was safe.  She only planned to stay until the trains were up and running again.
    She was still there.  The trains had been running for weeks now without fail.  Something kept her from leaving.  That something, was Rin Nitori.
    He was about three years older than her, living on his own.  He was a maroon colored rabbit, walking through the snow carrying an umbrella.  She bumped into him, falling to the ground.  She heard his voice, and their eyes met.
    That was a moment she would never forget.
    Asking if she was alright, he invited her back to his place, out of the cold and snow, saying she could stay until the trains were back up and running, and call home to explain where she was.  This was after she had explained how she had gotten there, and where she came from.
    When he asked her name, she replied with Val, just Val.
    That made him chuckle.  Frankly, she honestly did not know her last name.
    If it upset him inside, he didn't show it.  Instead, he smiled.  It seemed he was completely enchanted with her.
    Each day consisted of them spending all the time they could together.  Sometimes he'd go out and leave her in the apartment alone.  She felt completely safe.  She'd go through his belongings curiously, looking at pictures.  She noticed one of an older man that looked like him.  She learned later this was his father Shin, someone he hadn't seen in many years.
    The more she looked around, the more she asked questions about him.  It was easier learning about him than explaining her emotional baggage.  She learned he descended from a family of assassins, and though he could fight, he was far more gentle and removed from the life style.  He was active in military endeavors more than anything else, despite being so young.  He was gentle, loved to laugh, and was great at making her laugh too.
    He also loved children.
    At first she stuck to looking at pictures, examining little pieces of furniture he kept either for decor or for the memories.  Over the days she moved to checking the type of cologne he wore, sniffing the scarf he had worn the day before when they went walking to the market.  One day when she had some bad cramps, she even curled up in his bed, snuggling up to his pillow and using his blanket to wrap herself in the warmth and smell.
    She hated being cold.
    He came home and found her there.  She didn't know it, but he just smiled, and kissed her head gently, letting her sleep until the smell of dinner and the absence of the cramps helped her wake up for the meal.
    Rin was a wonderful cook.  He taught her a lot of things too.  She'd sit quietly and watch, giggling and commenting on his style, asking questions so she'd better understand what he was doing.  Thanksgiving was a big lesson opportunity for her.  She squealed, getting giggly when it came time to wash and prepare the turkey.  Funny jokes, running out of hand soap, and whether the word giblets was pronounced with a hard or soft g were the highlight of the day.
    Everything became fun.  Val even made a chocolate meringue pie by herself.  She promised as the table was being set for dinner that she would try to cook more come Christmas Day.
    Christmas Day.  The words slipped out of her mouth so readily.
    She knew she was going to stay.  She called Mona later that night to wish her Happy Thanksgiving, and say she was sorry, but she planned to stay at least until the new year.
    At least.  Inside, Val hoped that the trains would go under maintenance again...for a very long time.

    Walking around the apartment Val looked around.  The Christmas Tree was big and beautiful and the centerpiece of the room, but it wasn't all there was.  Beautiful garland and lights with the colors of the rainbow adorned the arches of doors, wrapped around poles in the foyer, and stretched across the mantle piece and tables in the room.  The mantle also had candles on either end, and a beautiful Nativity scene sitting in the middle.  It was old, almost antique, and Rin said it was one of his favorite pieces to put up in display for the holiday.
    Hanging on the mantle were two stockings.  One had Rin's name.  The glitter and glue spelling it out were messy somewhat, as though made by the hands of a child.  Beside his was one with the name Val on it.  The writing was much neater, obviously made with the steady and loving hand of an adult.  She teased him about putting "just Val" underneath it.  He grinned back.  "If only I could, but I'm quite sure I would run out of room."
    This was the first stocking she had ever had.
    Under the tree were tons of presents.  Val had to blush; it seemed like every time Rin went out he came back with some new present for her.  Sometimes large, other times small.  She told him not to fret over her so much, and then followed it up by asking what he wanted for Christmas.
    "What I want?" he asked.  Tilting his head slightly he grinned.  "You already gave me what I wanted.  All I wanted, was someone to share it with."
    To this, Val blushed gently, as he often drew out of her as of recent days.  "You wanted someone to spend Christmas with?"
    "Yeah, but really, I meant, my life." He looked at her, recognizing just how heavy the words were.  He wanted to make thoughtful eye contact, so she knew that this time wasn't simply a tease.
    She saw his eyes and this message struck her immediately.  She felt her neck tingle, and wondered if it was possible to blush in a color as dark as purple, or even blue.  "Rin you...you really..." she started.  Before she could finish, she sneezed.  Her hands came up to her arms, rubbing them in a steady rhythm for warmth.  This was a practice she was very well acquainted with.
    She hated the cold...
    "Here."
    Opening her eyes again she felt something warm wrap around her.  Rin had gotten her some warm sweaters that covered her shoulders, unlike the shirt she met him in that left her shoulders exposed.  Still, what she felt around her now was warmer even than a blanket.  It felt...alive.
    Looking she saw his ears, long and soft like velvet wrapped around her. He had pulled her in his lap, putting his chin on her shoulder.  He chuckled softly, saying, "You always get so cold, Val, just Val.  I don't know how you made it outside that day that I met you."
    Her mind kept puzzling over the idea of blushing every color of the rainbow.  She wondered if his ears were sensitive enough to hear her heart beating faster.  This was the closest they had gotten.
    "Well I...I lived...on the streets for so long I guess...so many cold nights just, weakened my defenses," she said slowly.  Closing her eyes, she let her mind abandon thinking about blushing, and slowly let her body sink back against his strong chest.  His arms folded around her gradually in response.  She had mentioned being homeless before, she just liked to keep the most of it, the parts that still scared even her, to herself.
    Her fear and hatred of the cold was just one of those things.
    "You said as much...and, you're probably right, it might have done that to you," he said with closed eyes.  The first time she mentioned her past, it got him in his heart in a way no sad story had ever affected him.  He couldn't understand, fathom, or even scarcely believe the mind of parents that would throw this dear, sweet girl away like they did.  She deserved better.
    Maybe that's why he liked pampering her.  The little kisses while she slept, all of the gifts, the laughter, the smiles, the tickles, and the teases.  He wanted her to feel like she had a life, a friend.
    A home.
    Now, he wanted to make sure she was warm.  She didn't know it, but she revealed her disdain for shivering just then.  With how relaxed she got feeling the warmth bundling her up, with how tightly she wrapped up in his blankets when she would take naps in his bed, with how she giggled the first time he let her use his whirlpool bath, he knew.
    She craved the warmth. She would always love that cuddle, those arms, his ears.

    Pouring a glass of milk Val walked over to the couch, turning the television on.  It was Christmas Eve, and pretty much every little cartoon or movie Rin had showed to her that entire month were on at one time or another.  The turkey was washed and the stock was boiling on the stove.  Val told Rin she felt confident enough to make it herself, or at least watch it while she was gone.
    Before he left, he promised to buy plenty of hand soap.
    She took a cookie nibbling it.  She had had the most fun making the cookies.  While they baked, Rin helped her put together a gingerbread house.  She said it was the cutest thing she had ever seen.  He promised they could eat it once Christmas was over.  She told him to bring home chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream, so they could make gingerbread house sundaes for Christmas Day night.
    Washing the cookie down with a sip of milk made her smile as she remembered this.  She felt sorry for the little house.  She made sure to take enough pictures with it, even dabbing some icing on Rin's nose before he posed for the last few shots.
    A fire was crackling in the fireplace.  She glanced up at the Nativity scene while an advertisement played on the television.  She wondered if that set belonged to his mother, or even his grandmother before her.  Perhaps that's why it was so precious to him.
    Maybe he planned to leave it to one of his children.  He took such good care of it after all.
    Val pulled a microfiber blanket around herself.  Rin gave her some "presents" early, bringing her warm blankets to keep her cozy.  She remarked once she felt healthier and stronger than she ever had.  It wasn't that Mona didn't try to keep her girls healthy, it was just they could only afford so much with so many mouths to feed.  Rin understood.  He responded by saying it was for that reason that he had stored so much money away.  He planned to have a big family, and he wanted to be sure they were in want of nothing.
    "Big?  Just how big are we talking?" Val asked.
    Sipping his drink, Rin grinned.  "Oh, at least ten.  I am a rabbit after all," he replied, winking.  "But I am reasonable.  I want their mother to be able to handle it.  She is the queen of the burrow after all."
    "Ten...?" Val blinked, then she giggled.  Without hesitating she replied, "I'd love that, I'm used to being surrounded by many others, and the flurry of activity.  I think as long as you can provide a healthy and happy household then there's nothing wrong...nothing wrong at all." She took a bite of her biscuit looking outside.  It was cloudy.  It was going to snow again, steadily until Christmas Eve.
    His eyes glistened.  He may have been exaggerating with the number ten, perhaps, but her response to it was beautiful, glorious.  A lot of girls he knew were just focused on themselves.  Val, though she went without her entire life, was just concerned with making sure the lives of her children were better, and never knew poverty like she had.  Yes, he knew when she said what she did, she was thinking as though she were the very queen of the burrow he had mentioned.  It just came so fast so...naturally to her lips.  It had to be what she was thinking; only a mother as beautiful as she would be would be thinking of children she didn't even know yet.
    She would be sure they would never know the bitter cold that would haunt her even in the middle of a toasty room.
    That cold was so persistent, only one thing chased it away.

    Val's eyes were drawn from the mantle to the door.  She saw Rin step inside, folding his umbrella and sitting it inside its stand after shaking the snow off it.  Even with the umbrella in hand snow had managed to get in his hair, on his clothes, and even those velveteen ears.
    She got up smiling.  He always volunteered to be the one to go outside in the cold, even if it was just something she needed, even if it was something feminine.  He was such a gentleman.
    He just didn't want to make her face that freeze, not if he could help it.
    Looking up he grinned.  "No need to dream of a white Christmas.  It's here in earnest."
    "Aww Rin," she smiled, "Get yourself settled then come sit, we'll warm you up.  The stock still has about an hour left."  She walked over, taking his coat from him after he had removed it, and placed it in the foyer closet.
    Still he grinned.  "You've become quite the chef, I'm proud of you."  He shook his head gently, letting his hair flow out and little flakes of snow to drift to the ground.  "I'd like to sit and warm up very much.  I think sitting with you, some blankets, cookies and milk, and Christmas shows on TV by a warm fire will make for a wonderful evening."
    Val giggled, closing the closet.  "I'll get a glass and some cookies."  She ran over to the kitchen gathering everything together.
    Rin walked over to the couch watching her as he did so.  He did feel cold, but was already warming up simply from being inside.  He couldn't imagine Val just randomly getting the shivers.  Looking at the couch he saw she had practically made a nest out of the blankets he had bought her, and the one she snatched off his bed.  That one was a favorite by now.
    But he smiled.  Keeping her warm was easy.  He knew the one way to do it, the sure fire way to keep her warm even from the random shivers.
    "Here we go."
    He looked up and saw Val sit down the plate of cookies and the glass of milk.  "Smashing," he said with a smile.  He sat down on the couch, a practice they were accustomed to by now.  He would sit first, and she would sit down half beside, half in front of him.  He'd wrap the blankets around them, mostly around her, cocooning her to lock in the warmth.  He never complained once, even if she had to get up several times during an evening.
    In the event the shivers still came, Rin knew what to do.
    For the next few hours, the couple sat together watching Christmas favorites.  They had been played so many times, a lot of them, Val felt like she knew them as well as Rin did, having held them close since he was a child.  She'd giggle and he'd chuckle.  He'd sip milk after she playfully popped a cookie in his mouth after he told a joke about Frosty the Snowman.  He got up once to go take the stock off the stove, putting it in jars for the next day.  After a fair amount of begging, Val consented to let him cut up one of the chocolate meringue pies they had made earlier that day, as long as she could have a slice.
    The hours ticked by.  Two pieces of pie, a batch of cookies, and four glasses of milk later, Midnight struck.  The Christmas shows continued, but Val's eyes were drawn outside.  She spent at least one Christmas on the streets, and the first five years where December 25th rolled around, she didn't even know what Christmas was.
    Though the past eight times had been happy, this one was magical.  It warranted attention, appreciation, and thankfulness.
    "Val?"
    She looked back at Rin smiling.  "Merry Christmas Rin...Rin Nitori." She giggled softly.  The way she said it, the tone matched how he would call her Val, just Val, exactly.
    This caused him to smile.  Something about it.  Everything about it. Everything about her.
    He loved every facet of it, of her, of Val.  One day, he planned to make her Val, Val Nitori.
    Something got his attention though.  She had dropped her gaze, curling up gently.  He felt her arms start to rise up like they would when the shivers found their way to her soft skin, taunting the glossy fur on her arms that tried to protect it.  He wondered if subconsciously, the heart of a six year old little girl remembered a not so warm and wonderful Christmas eve, one devoid of that warmth, and of course, love.
    That one thing that chased the shivers away did so again.  She felt his ears work their way around her like a hug, like a warm scarf on her shoulders.  Eventually his arms did the same.  Like exhaling a slow breath, the shivers began to recede.  Like she did the first time, she relaxed, sinking into him, craving that warmth.
    She hated the cold.  She loved the warmth, but she loved something else even more.
    "I love you Val, just...Val."
    Blinking, Val opened her eyes.  She glanced up at his face, seeing it from where he rested his chin on her shoulder, but his eyes were closed.  His lips were curled very slightly.  Though his expression appeared peaceful, you could tell he was happy, euphorically so.
    For the first time, Val appreciated more than just the snow, and the horrible trains that left her lost and alone, just like her calloused parents had done when she was young.  For the first time, she even appreciated the cold, knowing it would haunt her the rest of her life.  It had weakened her defenses, making her susceptible to sickness, maybe even difficulty in having children, and frailty later in life.
    But as she looked around the room, she took it all in, closing her eyes as her senses flooded her spirit.  She could feel the taste of cookies, milk, and chocolate meringue pie in her mouth.  She smelled the scent of pinewood as the fire burned in the fire place.  She heard the crackling of those embers, and the sound of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" playing on the television, the last bong of the clock tower ringing out he Midnight hour.  She saw images of the beautiful tree, the antique nativity set, and her very own stocking hanging on the mantle.
    She heard the laughter of jokes that they shared, the washing of the turkey, whether giblets was pronounced with a hard or soft g, and the little bit of icing on Rin's nose as they posed for pictures of their gingerbread house, in anticipation of gingerbread house chocolate sundaes on Christmas Day night.  She smelled the scent of his cologne, his own smells wrapped in the soft blanket on his bed, even in the fibers of the pillows.  Instead of visions of sugarplums in her head, she had a brief thought of a much older, wiser version of herself.  She was sitting on a similar couch, children all around her.  It had to have been at least ten, or maybe more.  They too were listening to that song, watching that TV show, sitting near that glorious, albeit much larger tree, with their own stockings on that poor mantle, still showcasing that beautiful nativity scene.
    Val wasn't sure why, but she imagined two of the older girls were already fighting over who would inherit their father's precious treasure, as playful as it was.
    They shared cookies, milk, and excitement over gingerbread chocolate ice cream sundaes after presents and dinner that next day.  The dinner...their mother was such an amazing cook after all.
    Their mother...she was their mother.  She wanted to reach out and touch their heads, even kiss them.  She was the queen of that burrow...she wanted to feel it.
    But instead, she felt those ears.  Yes.  Even in that distant future, there were his ears, making sure the shivers stayed away.  Making sure, she never felt lonely, afraid, or cold again.
    She appreciated...the cold.  She appreciated it, for bringing her to this man, for showing her, such a beautiful future could possibly exist, or even come true.  This was only the first Christmas of many.  All she had to do was accept the cold, to welcome the warmth in.
    She giggled softly.  She had gotten her Christmas wish too.  And it wasn't in any of the colorful packages underneath the tree.  It was nestled in those velveteen ears, resting in the heart that beat, pumping blood and warmth to them, that he shared with her now, and always.
    "I love you too...Rin, Rin...Nitori."

Merry Christmas 2014
The Warmth of Christmas
And now time for my annual Christmas one shot =3

This couple isn't new from this year, but they were a favorite last year and got overlooked XD  Heck, they're still a favorite. I had the idea for this little story and like my one shots typically do, it wrote itself in one evening.

Basically this story is part of the history we wrote for these two.  They started off with no history, but the most and more we used them, we slowly came up with this story of them knowing each other a long time ago.  The story explains the beginning of it, and the first Christmas they spend together.

What happens after this story, is Val is taken away by someone named Cliff and imprisoned for the next 22 years.  Rin is all but heartbroken.  He doesn't know that Val's being forced to have children.  He even comes across her oldest, baby Lilith, taking care of her with his future bride, before letting her go, thinking her parents might be looking for her.  He eventually has two children with his new wife, Reiyuu and Anita, while Val, while she's imprisoned has many babies that die, while these live.  Daughters Lilith, Angeline, Tiffany, Lucille, Georgia, Vicky, and Valarie, and sons Chad, Clyde, Vaan, and Dakota.

Rin being in the armed forces eventually discovers what happened to her and goes to save her.   He's captured and imprisoned by the same man for several years, while his wife is dead and his two children are left alone.  It isn't until the oldest child, Lilith, finds a boyfriend who is interested in her past, and helps to save the imprisoned children, and both Val and Rin.  This comes days after Val's youngest baby, Josiah, is killed in a blind rage from the father.  Later they learn, Val and Rin would have had a baby daughter, Valarie, that was removed from Val before she was first captured.

Shows you how close they get in all this XD

But, the good news is, they're able to reunite and rekindle that old love.  They conceive their baby girl, Eva, and before Eva is born, Kephalos returns baby Josiah to them, since his death was so horrific and senseless.

Even better news, little Valarie is given back as well.  So that's the entire family reunited.  Now you see how the scene at the end makes sense, it always says "ten or so"  Now Rin and Val get that big family around the Christmas tree XP

I'm grinning just writing this up.  Rin and Val are a big favorite if you couldn't tell lol

I really had fun with all the little details in this.  It was all about the five senses in this story lol  It's little things like the gingerbread house sundaes, and the nativity scene, and everything, it was just so much fun X3 Like I said I had the idea with the ears being wrapped around her to cure the lasting shivers she gets, and the rest wrote itself.  One of my favorite one shots to be sure.

Anyway, Merry Christmas from Rin and Val! X3

Rin Nitori belongs to Gem.
Val (just Val XP) Nitori belongs to me.
