'I swear...one day I'm just gonna snap and kill everyone in that damn house..'
A scowl was present on the glitchy demon's face as he walked down the sidewalk, doing his best to avoid people and stick to the shadows. He had his earbuds in, tuning out the rest of the world with songs from "My Chemical Romance" blaring in his eardrums.
As much as he tolerated the egos, he sometimes just needed time away from them. And he had only recently learned that a simple walk down the street and some tunes was enough to put his mind at ease.
He had to admit...it was better than just sitting in his room and stabbing something over and over again.
But as he continued walking, humming along to the song currently playing on his phone, Anti saw a group of people crossing the street in front of him, heading in his direction.
He didn't doubt for even a moment that someone in that crowd would recognize his face, but right now, for once in his life, he wasn't looking for any attention.

"Let's review, shall we?" Die smoothed his hands across a piece of paper on his kitchen table. "We'll send (Y/n) into the city around one or two in the morning."
"I'll pretend to be crying and upset about something to attract his attention." (Y/n) continued.
"And as soon as he finds you?"
"Claim that Anti's trying to take my soul all to himself. Tell him I want a second chance."
"Which I know he'll give to you. He agreed before, but also he'll have you right there. Be convincing, but not too convincing."
"What, do you want me to like, kiss him or something?" She folded her arms, leaning back in her chair.
"NO!" He yelled, almost terrified. "Don't— just anything but that. That's HOW you give your soul to a demon, the easy way anyway
Surface Tension part 15Jack slammed his front door behind him, perhaps a bit harder than he should have, judging from the way it made the doorframe shake. He winced and turned away, shoving away the images his mind conjured up -of his hands breaking people, those close to him, unable to control himself- a distinctly unwanted reminder of how he had lost control just recently. The overcast sky perfectly reflected his mood.
It didn't matter anyway. No one else was home today. The usual crowd of pixies, wisps, sprites, and other minor demons that liked to hang around his home- and sometimes in his home- were conspicuously absent.
'They probably just keyed in to my mood and are giving me time to myself,' he thought absently.
Grimacing, he took a long sip of his scaldingly hot coffee and started to walk. Asp sat silently in his bag, for reasons Jack didn't really feel like puzzling out right now. Maybe he was giving him time to think? Or maybe he was simply watching him, like one would watch a wounded or feral ani
The End, or a New Beginning? An Anti oneshot Jack's body stirred after being eerily still for a few minutes, a groan emitting from him. He sat up slowly and his eyes opened to reveal that the left iris had turned green. Glitches ran over him and when they were gone several things had changed. His ears were pointed and adorned with simple, black gages. Dark circles surrounded his eyes and when his mouth opened, small, sharp fangs had replaced his eyeteeth. He had dropped the knife he had been holding and was now staring shakily at his hands.
"I-I did it? I-I'm free? It actually worked?" He said slowly, completely stunned. His voice had a slight rasp to it, most likely due to the fresh cut on his throat which had already stopped bleeding. It was oddly a slightly higher pitch too. Joyful tears welled up in his eyes. He was free! He was finally out of that dark void he had been trapped in for years. That Jack trapped him in. His face broke into a wide
