ScrapbookingDistractions were fairly easy to come by when it came to the interior of Doc Worth's office.Scrapbooking5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
This was something Hanna's zombie companion found himself becoming progressively grateful for, as the weeks rolled by and he ended up spending a lot more time in that office than he would have liked. Hanna once made a cheery remark about these being 'social visits', but in his friend's humble opinion such visits generally shouldn't have involved things like Hanna bleeding all over the floor. And the visits did tend to revolve around this, whether it was due to the latest collateral damage from one of the redhead's cases or simply because of his rather stunning ability to get himself injured doing seemingly simple tasks. Between things like the run-in with that troll under the bridge and Hanna's regular trips down the stairs, the twenty-four year old and his companion tended to find themselves in Worth's office at least once a week.
Therefore things like the series of curses were essentially rou

HINABN - MortalityLooking down on the man's sickly, emaciated form, Veser felt a sense of pity. 'Look what your life has come to,' he thought. 'Laying half-dead in a cold white hospital room, and nobody to blame but yourself.'HINABN - Mortality5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It had been years since he'd talked to the man, probably three or four, and even then they hadn't spoken long, just enough for Veser to coerce a few pictures of his mother from his dad's possessive, still-grief-stricken hand. Fourteen years, and still Mr. Hatch refused to let go. He wouldn't believe, even after years of hatred, that his wife had finally left him.
'It's your own damn fault,' Veser thought bitterly, averting his eyes from his father's face. 'Maybe if you weren't such a dick, you wouldn't have had to spend the end of your life all alone. Maybe if you didn't drink so much...'
Memories of his childhood swarmed in on him, all the years of being told he was worthless, his father's physical and emotional abuse, his mother's cold eyes because al
UnfairHe had told him not to run ahead.Unfair5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He always told Hanna not to run ahead, and of course, Hanna never listened. He was always three steps in front of everyone else, leaping into danger with little more than a marker, a hammer and a smile. He would leap ahead and his zombie companion would follow, pulling Hanna from the fire every time and begging Hanna to slow down at least a bit. And then Hanna would always smile and apologize and promise to not do it again and then they would both smile because they both knew Hanna could not stop throwing himself into danger any more than his zombie friend could stop worrying about it. This was just how things were.
It wasn't fair, but it was how things were.
It shouldn't have been a surprise that things happened the way they did, yet some part of him couldn't seem to comprehend the sight of Hanna bleeding to death on the grimy floor.
He knows it shouldn't have been shocking. For all his powers and secrets, Hanna was the most worryingly human of all of
NightlifeThe day started like his usually did nowadays. He woke at about 7 o' clock (at night, sadly). Unable to be completely nocturnal, he suffered through a sunset before he could leave the house (condo, apartment, prison, pad). Nothing to do. He looked at a blank computer screen, then an empty fridge (not out of hunger but habit), then the blank sky. Too many clouds for stars, just an expanse of black which he supposed was some sort of reflection of his soul or something, but only if he lived in a cheap teen novel. He figured that in the real world, the night sky was just black, prickled with pinholes of stars. Not anybody's soul.Nightlife4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Katara awoke the day after her wedding cold. When she had started to cry he had left her, miserable wretch that she was and went to bed. After a long time when her tears had finally ceased she saw he was asleep. She had grabbed a robe laid out for her and wrapped it around herself, finally feeling a sense of ease at being covered once more.
She had looked around hastily for somewhere else to sleep, but the only option was the cold hard floor. Finding no other option she saw the Zuko had slid himself to the very edge of the bed. There was a vacant spot nearest to her on the other side of the bed. She hesitated but eventually climbed into it and was astonished to feel a deep heat radiating from her now husband. She had never felt such body heat and she turned her back hesitantly to him but her hands began to grow cold while her back heated. She became confused, her need for war

She had looked all over the palace for him but with no success. She decided then that the best course of action was to wait for him until evening. She did so and surreptitiously brushed her hair until it was soft and wrapped her robe around her body.
When finally he did come in he actually sought her eyes out first which he had never done before. His golden stare hugged her heart and she stood up and went to him and he embraced her in his warm arms. He was so hot like fire and she watched as the candle light jumped a bit in response. She looked up at him and he leaned down and kissed her. His hot breath warmed her whole body it seemed and she had never felt a sensation like it.
He was so warm and gentle and she wanted to help him. She wanted him to feel needed, wanted and loved. He took off his tunic and undershirt and stood bare-chested before h

A few weeks after their wonderful night together, Katara left with her ship to sail to the Earth Kingdom. From there arrangements had been made for her brother to meet her with their own retinue and she would travel with them the rest of the way.
She had already switched out her red wardrobe for a more favorable blue and was delighted in seeing her brother again. As she rummaged through her trunk of clothes she came across her crown. It had been tucked neatly inside her trunk. She had set it aside on purpose while she was packing but she guessed Zuko had purposefully slipped it in, so she would remember to come home. She shook her head exasperated.
When she docked at a small port to a neutral town she met up with Sokka. It had only been about four months since she had last seen him, but it felt like an eternity. He looked the same but he greeted

Iroh said you were out here. Is everything alright? How did the council meeting go? She came up to him and rested her cold hands on his face. He backed away fearful of her kind touch.
Just a bunch of fools. He muttered.
Zuko, Im sure they have their reasons. What did they say? Zukos shoulders slumped. She refused to let him face away from her and came to his side resting a hand on his arm.
They said I must have an heir before I can become Fire Lord.
Well thats nothing new. Why should that upset you? He turned to her and eyed her, more coldly than he had intended.

Zuko didnt say much after that but slipped into the bed opposite of her like he had before for many nights. She herself went under the covers. A window had been left open in their room and it wasnt until she began to shiver did she realize it. Suddenly there was a warm hand on her shoulder.
Youre cold. She could feel him move closer and she suddenly felt instantly better. She didnt turn around but still she began to shiver. He leaned in closer and she felt his hot breath along her neck. Even his breath was hot and warm. Her body stiffened at the intimacy, her face becoming hot.
Turn around, youll be warmer. It was almost a command but she was so cold at this moment she did turn around. His arms suddenly wrapped around her and tugged her closely to his chest. She felt instantly warmer. His body

"Jin your back! How was your date dear?" Her mother asked when Jin walked through the door.
"It was nice," she mumbled opening the door to her room and slamming it shut.
Her mother exchanged a knowing glance to her husband, and then chuckled with delight. "Ahhh, the life of a teenager."
Lying across her bed, Jin thought about what she could've have done wrong to make him leave so hastily. Not able to come to a conclusion, she walked over to her dresser drawer and looked at herself in the mirror. Suddenly a smile formed across the pretty face that stared back at her. Yes, she was disappointed that he left so quickly, but she enjoyed herself and thought that Li seemed to have had fun

He seemed so unexpressive of what he was thinking and feeling unless he was mad. She scrunched her nose and lifted her arm over her head determined to throw his emblem.
Then she thought better of it. Iroh had been really impressed Zuko had given this to her. It was old and a family heirloom. Her hand went to her necklace. It wasnt any different from her necklace. Even when Zuko had taken it from her when she got it back she realized it had been taken care of, it had been returned to her good as new. She had to be patient with Zuko, but she wasnt sure if she could handle it.

He opened the door to their bedroom and walked in. Katara was sitting in front of her mirror brushing her dark tresses. She turned and looked at him and he saw her for the first time. Her face was paler than he remembered her and she even seemed thinner.
Where were you last night? She asked softly.
I had some things to do, I got in pretty late. You were already asleep so I didnt wake you. Her lips thinned and he just couldnt believe how much she had changed. She suddenly felt uneasy as if he was scrutinizing her with his stare.

Seven MinutesI had never been to a party that wasn't being thrown by one of my friends. But Lilly and I were kinda friends. We had a class together, but that was the only time we talked. When she invited me to her birthday party, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go. She was one of the more popular kids, but she was so nice. My two close friends, Kristal and Hayley, were also kind of friends with her, so they also got invited. We all decided that there was probably going to be a lot of popular, mean kids there, so if we all went, we had to stay by each other the whole night.Seven Minutes4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Iroh was Firelord in name only. Zuko saw to the responsibilities of the kingdom. At one time it had kept his mind occupied from thoughts of his father and sister after the war. But now it fueled him. The deep care and effort he extended to his nation was overwhelming. Few realized the extent to which it stretched, but Iroh knew. His nephew had been born to help restore balance and he put his whole heart and effort into it.
Lately he excersised more time than usual on managing the nation. The times Zuko did show up for dinner he was quiet and contemplative and would finish his food quickly to resume his work.

She saw him maybe once in the mornings after his training and usually either at dinner or later that evening when they fell asleep. She was almost content. Being married wasnt so bad after all she guessed.
There was a little garden area with a pond where turtleducks swam. She spent most her time among them, just content to have some water to bend even if it wasnt much.
