No Coaching TodayIt feels like it's been way too long since we've slept together in the same bed. Katniss has been pushing me away lately, and we both know why. I can't read her mind, but it doesn't take a psychic to figure out what she's been planning. She'll want me to come home, she'll sacrifice herself for me.No Coaching Today5 years ago in Romance More Like This
But I am not going to let that happen.
I made a deal with Haymitch and he's going to keep it. He has to. It's only fair. Last game we both wanted her to come home. Consequently, sacrificing me. She got all of the supplies, and I nearly die in a puddle of mud. I didn't get help until she came to nurse me back to health. Haymitch owes me now. He has to do that one favor for me: let her live again. He has to. I can't let her die. Our teamwork again once will bring her home to her family and her friends.
Jealousy takes over for a moment as I think of Gale. There's no hate, but the yearning that the way she earnestly cares for him- the way I care for her- was at me instead. When I die in that aren

When I had slammed the door it had bounced back and now stands ajar. I look up as I hear it creak. There he is, standing in the doorway looking at me with a mix of emotions. Though he mostly just seems confused.
I quickly wipe away the tears and try to tell him to go but the words just won't come. It's like there is something blocking my throat. And it wasn't his hands this time.
Without waiting for my permission Peeta walks over to me and lies next to me on the bed. The shock of how similar this is to the nights on the train is painful. Especially as I look into his blue eyes. They are his eyes, but they're different now. They look at me more coldly, the love has gone. Yet as he speaks I can hear a trace of that old warmth.
"What's wrong?" he asks me. I look up at his face a moment before I answer.
"You," I tell him. He blinks rapidly
Mockingjay: My Thoughts Mockingjay: Worth the wait, but only just. </i>Mockingjay: My Thoughts5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
SPOILER WARNING! DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED MOCKINGJAY! I REPEAT, DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED MOCKINGJAY!
I wrote this about 10 minutes after I finished the book Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
The following is my thoughts on the book.
The beginning was promising, the middle was epically amazing, the beginning of the end was sad but not unsurprising, and the end of the end was weirdly satisfying in a way that only Suzanne Collins can pull off.
Was I satisfied in general? Knowing that I read the Hunger Games and Catching Fire each within a months of their release and have waited nearly two years for a conclusion to the trilogy, that's an excellent question.
I suppose, yes, it was worth the wait. But only just.
But, to be honest, Mockingjay is, now that I ponder it, my least favorite of the three books. The Hunger Games is my most f

We walked in to a brightly lit room, the curtains drawn open, letting in the moonlight. 24 chairs stood in a circle in the middle of the room, a small pile of food sitting in the middle.
I laughed to myself quietly. I looked at Peeta to see if he got the joke, but his face was sunken and depressed, as if he were living last years horror again. I reached out and touched his hand gently, which seemed to bring him back.
I walked over and took my seat next to Bettee, Peeta taking his next to Mags.
Finnick stood and cleared his throat, bring everyone's attention to him. "Everyone's here. Let the game begin." He sat back down and looked at one of the Morphlings. "You're up first."
She giggled and looked at the other Morphling, who was sitting across the room. "Truth or Dare?

"Fuck me, Peeta Mellark." I giggled and crashed my lips into his. He didn't kiss me back. He pulled away. He got up out of the bed and put his feet... foot... firmly on the ground.
"Go to sleep, Katniss."
"NO!" I screamed and slammed my fists into the bed. I sat up and started kicking around. "No, no, no, no, NO!" I was really out of it. Whatever Haymitch had given me was threatening to see the world again. "You just tell me what to do all the time! 'Katniss, I'll go out, you stay here'. 'Katniss, let's go home'. 'Katniss, I'll be right back'. 'Katniss, go to sleep'! I'm not a baby!" He sat down on the edge of the bed. "And you know what?" I crawled over to him, pushed him down, and straddled him. "I'm sick of it!"
"Katniss," he said. His voice was level as I tried to push his shirt up over his head. "You are v
Forever is Longer Than It Sounds- 04We were lying sleepless in our bed. He was petting my hair, which he had long ago figured out was my favorite thing in the world. It had been almost a year since I finally told him I loved him. It had been almost a year since he officially moved his belongings from across the street into my house. It had been a year since Peeta and I had become Peeta and I. It had been the most wonderful year of my life.Forever is Longer Than It Sounds- 043 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"What are you thinking about?" he asked.
"Us," I said. He didn't respond, just kept petting my hair. Suddenly something formed in my brain."I wanna play a game," I stated.
"What game?" he asked.
"Real or not real."
I felt his body tense up. "That's not... that wasn't really a game... so to speak." I could tell that the game had some unpleasant memories linked to it in Peeta's sometimes foggy mind.
"But if you remember, it's how you got me to say that I loved you," I said, leaning up and pecking his lips. "And I do love you, Peeta Mellark. So, so much."
"I love you, too, Katniss Everdee
Forever is Longer Than It Sounds- 10The sheets where Peeta's body should be were cold. I sat up with a start. Where was he? I heard water running from the bathroom sink, and moved toward the sound. It wasn't until I was already at the door that I heard his fist slamming against the counter top.Forever is Longer Than It Sounds- 103 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Peeta?" I looked around the door frame to see the sink on, Peeta leaning over it, one arm grabbing the counter, the other pounding away. "Peeta?" I repeated.
"Get out of here, Katniss," he hissed. Oh no. It was due to happen any day, but I can't say I was expecting it or was prepared for it. He was having an episode. I knew he was just telling me to get away for my own safety; he would never shoo me away without a reason.
But I didn't care what his reasons were. I ran into the bathroom and flung my arms around him. His body tensed. So did my grasp on him. "Don't you leave me, Peeta Mellark."
It all happened so fast after that. He was clearly stronger now than usual. He peeled back my arms from him as if they were twigs, pulling v

I didn't used to be scared of the nightmares. But that was because I had him. He was always there for me, and now he's not.

Maybe someday I'll be able to live without him, but right now I can't. He is gone far too soon. I need him so desperately, and I hate it. I hate relying on other people; I didn't used to hate relying on Peeta. I used to love it, enjoy every moment he held me at nigh

As I was walking down the road with Gale, a question crossed my mind. This question had been on my mind for quite sometime now. I just had no idea what to do about it.
Was I falling in love?
I don't even think I knew who it was with. Gale? Peeta? Stupid, stupid love. What does it have to be so complicated and hard?
With Gale, well I've known him forever. We've never had secrets between us, ever. But now Peeta coming in the picture and Gale's not going to like it, not at all; are even they friends? No. They come from different worlds. I told myself.

Draco's last classes for the day consisted of Herbology, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and charms. At the evening dinner, Draco didn't eat much. Like in his last few classes, his mind was preoccupied. When he left dinner, earlier than usual, he ignored Pansy and her attempts to make contact with him.
Soon, Draco found himself standing in his room. He got the sack and rummaged through the sack, taking the items within out one by one. Then, he started to attempt making the polyjuice potion.
Draco did nothing in his room for three nights except trying to make the potion. He locked himself in his room so no one could come in. Not that anyone would, anyways. It was just a small precaution. On the third night he was all ready except that he needed the lace winged flies. On the fourth night, again, he left dinner early and went to his room.

I look up for a moment and am surprised to see an Equalist looming over me. Before I can react, he uses his electricity-generating device and sends a current through the metal ladder. Electricity surges through my entire body, making every nerve in my body scream in pain. Unable to control myself, I let go of the rung of the ladder.

Mako was reluctant to leave Korra and Saki's sides at all, but had to after a while to return home, which was inevitable, and while Saki was able to leave after two more days at the clinic, healthy as could be, Korra was still considerably weak and needed more time to regain her lost strength.
The Firebender didn't want to separate Korra from the one comfort in her life then and couldn't bear to be away from Saki for any longer than a few hours, and so stayed there at the hospital (despite Tenzin's urging and Saiyu's annoyance), looking after the fussy baby while Korra slept, and joining in on admiring her when Korra was awake.
After two weeks passed, Korra was deemed strong enough to leave, but was ordered to refrain from participating in any strenuous physical activity. She may have gotten stronger, but she was not fully healed, and wouldn't be for a while.
