Cloudy with a Chance of OH FYORA THE SKY'S FALLING!

But of all the embarrassing and, to be perfectly frank, concerning things that I have done over the years, I believe that nothing will ever top the incident that my friends have taken to calling “The Miamouse Incident.”

Cotton Candy Clouds

Etzie slammed the cupboard door shut. “No, I’m really not. We split rent for this place down the middle and you do nothing but sit in your room all day or laze around on the couch and eat pizza, which, of course you don’t clean up!”

Castles in the Sky

"The sky was growing imperceptibly darker, as the sun dipped ever lower, the clouds retaining their purplish hues. Alaina gave a last, long look at them, her periwinkle eyes sad and wistful. Would Faerieland ever return to the clouds? she wondered."

Who Says You Need Wings?

Today was different, somehow. A blooming, ripening sensation in his limbs. A sign that he was ready, perhaps.

"Cotton Candy Clouds" by the_gecko_dude_ii
A slim, Royal Boy Gelert, fumbled with a ring of keys in one hand, while balancing a paper bag of groceries in the other. After a few moments of struggling, he managed to open the door into his small, and untidy, apartment. An annoyed sigh escaped his lips. “Elodius!” He called out, his voice bouncing off the walls. He set the paper bag down in the kitchen. “Elodius!!!” “Sweet Fyora,” the young Gelert heard a voice mumble beyond the kitchen. “I thought I’d have more time to tidy up before you got back home.” A Halloween Gelert leaned against the kitchen doorway. He pushed his dark, messy hair out of his face and tried to smooth it down into place. “You really just woke up, didn’t you?” “Etzie, I’m sorry, I really meant to –“ The upset Gelert interrupted the other with a wave of his hand, and began putting the groceries away. “It’s fine, I’ll just clean the apartment myself.” “I can help out, you know, it’s not as big a deal as you’re making it out to be.” “No, I don’t want you to help because I don’t really want to see you right now.” “Jeeze, Etzie, you’re really blowing this out of proportion.” Etzie slammed the cupboard door shut. “No, I’m really not. We split rent for this place down the middle and you do nothing but sit in your room all day or laze around on the couch and eat pizza, which, of course you don’t clean up.” Elodius started to argue back, but was interrupted by a knock on the door. Etzie slapped a palm to his face. “Great!” He exclaimed. Now Tomse and Tira are going to see our apartment while it’s a total wreck. This is so embarrassing.” Elodius rolled his eyes. “They really won’t care, Etzie. You care too much what others thing.” Etzie shot Elodius a venomous glance as he went to open the door. Elodius felt a twinge in his heart. He felt awful for sleeping in so late and not cleaning the apartment like Etzie asked. He knew very well how worked up his roommate got about keeping their living space clean and presentable to others, but he just didn’t see things the same way.
