All Things End: Part 51
A/N: Insomnia, bros. You get two chapter today.
Chapter 51: The Memory
He was curled up, deep within his own system. He was nothing more than just a flicker of light, barely holding on to life. He had made himself quite small. It did not matter though. The invader programs had dug their knife like fingers into everything. There was not a single part of his system where he could hide without Him knowing where he had gone.
It had been half a day now. Where was he? He never took this long. The waiting, oh god the waiting, it was often worse than the actual act. No, it was not, he always convinced himself of it but when the actual thing occurred he usually found himself taking it back. It was an endless cycle of trying to figure out which pain was genuinely the worst. They were both slowly crushing him mentally and on some level, physically.
He felt the probing arms of a program dig deeper into himself, drawing him back out into the open. He felt like a fish caught on a hook. He shivered h

Chapter 50: Computer Make A Friend
"Here's a bag of ice." The ferret girl said, holding the bag out to Computer.
He took it from her and placed it up against his head. He wasn't sure how this was supposed to help but he was in no position to argue. It didn't really stop the pain but it did stop his head from pounding.
"This is so cool!" She said with an almost childish glee. "I've always wanted a dog! And it glows in the dark too!"
Computer almost did a double take. "Wait, wait wait! I'm not some stray dog! I bought a room here!"
Her expression turned to disappointment. "You're a customer? Aw man, and here I was thinking we finally had a stray digging around in the garbage. All we ever get is raccoons and maybe a few creepy creatures every once in awhile."
He shrugged. "Sorry."
"So if you're a customer then what were you doing back there?" She asked. "I heard some big ruckus downstairs and I went down there thinking we had a new customer, dad could sleep through the apocalypse so I usu

Chapter 49: The Other Side Of Things
Running, running, he was so tired of running. After that little episode in the forest he had been so sure he wouldn't have to run around anymore. Why did these stupid flesh creatures have to tire out so easily?
He stopped almost as soon as came around to the other side of the building. Courage didn't seem to be following him so allowed himself a moment to rest. This side of the building had rooms too. Only the small hallway with the vending machines connected the two sides.
He leaned on the wall, fighting to stay conscious. His head was pounding viciously from the blow he had received. His eyes seemed impossible to keep focused anymore and he was afraid that he'd black out at any moment. Stupid twit! He might as well have cracked his head open for all the good he did!
He glanced around, hoping that the idiot wasn't trying to sneak up on him. He sighed quietly and kept moving. The ground seemed to spin as he walked, he had to keep a paw on his head j

Chapter 48: Sleep Deprivation
Courage ripped open his third bag of chips. He had procured them about two hours ago when he made a quick run to the vending machines. He was currently watching some terrible romance movie, but that was all that was on at this hour. Staying up with Computer was turning out to be far more boring than he ever thought.
The machine was currently sitting on the bed, his arms and legs tucked in, rocking back and forth. He seemed to nod off every once in a while but every time he did he'd snap back awake several minutes later. Any attempts to speak with him just ended in snippy comments and angry glares. The few times Courage did talk to him just left him so frustrated that he didn't even bother anymore.
"Want some?" He asked, attempting to hand the bag over to his glowing friend. Computer merely pushed it away.
"Fine, be that way..." He replied, rolling his eyes.
It was now two in the morning and he was admittedly getting tired. He had thought that maybe Compute

Chapter 47: Waiting For The Inevitable
Courage slowly opened the door, unsure of what to expect. He kept his eyes only at a squint as he went in. He didn't know what he was so worried about, it wasn't as if Computer would care if he just walked in. Everything was strangely silent, there was not a single sound from the machine. Bracing himself for the worst, Courage opened his eyes.
His mouth fell open.
Computer was fast asleep on the floor...
He let out a soft sigh. At least it hadn't been anything he was expecting.
The machine was curled up on the floor. He must have fallen asleep again on accident. He'd been looking so tired lately that it didn't really surprise him much.
He began to close the door again. If this was where the machine wanted to sleep then that was where he was going to leave him. It wasn't worth waking him up just to get into another argument and maybe he'd even be in a better mood now that he was finally getting some rest.
He had the door about halfway closed when t

Chapter 46: The Issue Of Trust
By the time they had finally found the motel they were looking for, the rain had increased to an absolute deluge. Just as Courage had feared, the weather whipped back up into a terrible storm. Every flash of lightning left him feeling as though they had just barely missed a hit.
They quickly bought a room from the main office building before making a run to building on the other side of the parking lot. The outdoor hallways leading into the rooms thankfully had an overhang keeping them out of the worst of the storm. Courage took no time shoving the key into its respective keyhole and tumbled inside.
"Finally!" He groaned.
"Ugh, I'm getting really tired of being wet." Computer muttered, joining him.
"I'm going to go check and see if there are any towels." Courage spoke, making his way over to the bathroom. Indeed there were. He tossed one to Computer.
"So what do you think it will be this time?" Computer asked. "Giant mutant cockroaches or evil dust bunnie

Chapter 45: Hamburgers And Coffee
Ten minutes out in the rain and Courage was already chilled and deeply soaked to the bone. At this rate his fever really would start acting up again. He was beginning to hate the rain and everything about it. Above all else, he was getting tired of his fur feeling so mushy. It made his skin itch and he kept feeling weighed down by it, which only made his muscles even more tired.
"I thought you said this place was close?" Computer asked.
"It is! Stop complaining and keep moving!" Courage growled. He was so incredibly hungry and this rain was making his so miserable, he couldn't help but allow himself to get angry.
"I wasn't complaining, you twit!" Computer shot back sharply.
Several minutes later they were still walking. Courage was just about to give up and let his stomach eat itself when he finally saw the sign he was looking for glowing brightly in the distance. It was like a beacon of hope guiding him through the darkness and his stomach would no lo

Chapter 44: Recovery
When Courage awoke again he was already starting to feel much better. He still felt weak and his body still ached from his cramped muscles but his head no longer hurt like a red hot iron and the room no longer spun when he opened his eyes. He sat up slowly, half expecting his dizziness to return.
Computer was sitting at the foot of the bed, his nose burred in that book of his. He still looked exhausted and Courage was worried that he hadn't rested at all.
"Did you get any sleep?" He asked the machine, almost startling him.
"Goodness dog, I thought you'd never wake up again!" Computer spoke. He turned around to face him.
"How long have I been asleep?" He asked his friend.
"Nearly all day now."
"R-really?" He gasped. He couldn't believe that he had almost slept the whole day away.
He gazed over to the window. It was still raining just as much as it had been hours ago. He was starting to wonder if it would ever let up. This wasn't completely unusual, Nowher
All Things End: Part 43
A/N: The bromance levels are through the roof. It's been dialed up to eleven the past couple of chapters but this one breaks the dial completely LOL. And before you get your pitchforked out, no this will never be a shipping fic so don't get your panties in a bunch.
Chapter 43: That Awkward Conversation
Courage woke to a pounding headache. He had a vague memory of being shaken awake and forced to choke down several pills without any water. He'd been so out of it at the time that he could hardly remember it happening. He found himself staring up at the dull brown ceiling and slowly remembering where he was. His head was still spinning but he could at least keep his eyes open now without feeling like the world was about to give out from under him.
He sat up slowly, trying not to aggravate his dizziness any worse than it currently was. Computer was standing next to the window, his chin resting on the windowsill all while he was trying not to fall asleep. He looked terribl
A Week Of KissesA Week Of Kisses
The first day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your shoulder,
Well before I thought about your lips.
Because I don’t know what I am doing, firstly,
But more importantly,
It’s because I know things can spiral quickly,
If things start shifting
After we lay down the concrete.
So I kiss the foundation,
Before we reach the soil.
The second day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your elbow,
Because it holds together the touch
And the flex.
To exhibit it,
I must kiss the joint that bends
And combines us together.
The third day I told you I loved you,
I lay my lips to your temples,
As I learned about the temple of reform,
For the Youth in North America.
Kissing you there signifying I will protect you,
As well as your temple,
As we re-form, into something more.
The fourth day I told you I loved you,
I’d kiss you softly on your forehead.
Because that’s what holds your brillian
