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 Today4 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

Hot and Dangerous
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. Retrieving the jar of flies, he opened the lid, u

It happens every single year, the same feeling of apprehension and fear, and if you're lucky, relief. This is only my fourth year experiencing the extremes of it all, but my brothers before gave me a taste of it. I'm glad to say my eldest brother doesn't have to worry about it anymore. He has surpassed the age making him ineligible. And my other brother only has this last time before it's just me. I've still got two more rounds of this torture before I'm done... hopefully. There's always that chance that it happens to me today.
Honestly, I don't think my parents could care less if my brother or I got stuck doing it. Or at least my mother. She's never been loving to us at all. How on earth did my father end up marrying her? Oh, well, I do know. His true love chose someone else because she needed him more than my father. I can't say I'm not happy about that because then I wouldn't be here... And she wouldn't either.

"Don't you think I know that already Haymitch?" I know she's not exactly fond of me. Well, its more like she doesn't trust me. By her reaction to him telling her we're coaching for the interviews separately, I can tell this only proves any theories she had before. My plan will definitely make things worse.
I came up with it last night. I can hardly sleep as it is. Why waste precious time twiddling my thumbs, when I could be coming up with a plan? Especially since I know I'm not coming out of the arena. That's only if I get it my way, but I have to admit its so bittersweet.
I was contemplating our scores from training. I'm not mad over my eight, honestly, I know what I did in front of the Gamemakers wasn't worth much higher than that. But the eleven Katniss received really struck a cord. I wasn't frustrated over that either, but I was so relived. It only helps me feel better about her taking care of herself. Plus it will really impress sponsors.

If Peeta Had Remembered He says he'd like to see youIf Peeta Had Remembered4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Haymitch's words ring in my ears and echo from every cell in my mind. He wants to see me. Peeta. The crazed boy who has been rescued from the Capitol by the rebels. The boy who has been hijacked and taken from me by that inhuman form of torture. The shell that used to hold the boy with the bread, but now only houses a mentally and physically scarred young man who believes that I am a mutt. That I am trying to kill him.
I am torn. Should I refuse and retreat to one of my hideouts, or should I go see him and risk exciting him so much that he hurts himself. Or me. If I am honest with myself, I am afraid to see him. Afraid that Peeta will hurt me. Not as he hurt me when he was first back and he tried to strangle me out of pure fear.

Before, I lower myself into the water and take a deep breath. In the back of my mind, I pray its my last.
How long have I been underwater? It seems like eternity. I feel my mind slowly clouding over when there's a tug on the back of my shirt.
I'm yanked out of the water, sucking in the air that I had been so pleasantly lacking. My eyes focused on Haymitch. He was soaking wet, thanks to me, and he looked as if someone had just punched him in the face. Or a fat man did a strip tease in front of him. Or a fat man doing a strip tease punched hi

One month. Two months. Three months. Never once did I leave my house. Peeta had made good on his promise to keep people checking up on me until I was better. Now, even though my body has been healed, my mind is in a state of disrepair. I'm no stranger to mental insanity. And just because I didn't leave didn't mean I didn't see him. Every day he would leave his home and walk toward the slowly redeveloping town. Then, come nightfall, he would return to his house on the other side of the street in the Victors Village.Forever is Longer Than It Sounds- 113 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Did you love Annie right away, Finnick?"
I look up. Katniss is looking at me expectantly. Did I love Annie right away? The words replay in my head. I think about it.
"No," I hear myself answering. Then a smirk enters my face as I add, "She crept up on me."
Katniss resumes knotting her rope. Waiting to hear if Annie was rescued or not, I wonder if it's possible to actually die of anticipation.
I remember the moment when I actually met her. She wasn't anyone special at first, just another player in the Capitol's Hunger Games. When I had met Annie for the first time, I didn't exactly like her. Tributes were supposed to respect and listen to their mentors, not talk back to and flirt with them. She came off as a brat to me.
But that was before. Before we spent countless days on the beach together, before we wished on shooting stars that soared across the sky together, before I fell head-over-heels in love with Annie Cresta.

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. He hasn't died, or been captured, or anything like that, but still he is gone. I try so hard to reach him, but I can't. I understand that he was hijacked and all that, but I want him back so badly it hurts.
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

She was reaped. Her name pulled out. Annie Cresta. At that time, she was just another tribute. I had seen her around, known of her. But I never knew her. I was her mentor. She was a tribute who would most likley die. That was what I saw when I met her for the first time, as she walked up onto the stage, looking scared but confident. Just another tribute.
I never thought she would creep up on me like she did. Playing with my emotions, toying with my affections. She reminded me of myself in some ways. A hopeless romantic. Flirty. All those kinds of things. But I didn't realise. I didn't realise the feelings until I saw her standing on the metal plate, ready to run into the bloodbath. I didn't know until then.

My mind is clouded by frustration and fear and confusion, but through it all I know that I want so much to touch her face, to feel her warmth under my skin again.

Summary: Summer MaKorra prompt: Nervous
She stood in the changing room completely dressed.
Her hair was down in loose curls that cascaded down her back and her bangs were pinned back. Her dress, a deep red color, was completely out of her element. It was held back by two straps that tied at the back of her neck, but sunk low in the neckline and left her back mostly exposed, it stopped at her knees and left her smooth legs just as bare. Being from the South Pole and almost always completely covered, she felt naked.
Korra's reflection betrayed her, she didn't look like herself. Why did she have to be at the stupid Fire Nation coming out ball thing? Oh right, she was the Avatar. The Avatar, who was wearing makeup and dressed to the nines and was the reason for the celebration.

It was preventable, he reflected. He couldve said he was too tired to meet Shishou outside. He couldve run away when he got a hint of what Shishou was talking about. But he didnt. One part of him told him to show her, get the rejection over and done with. Another part of him, the one that screeched above the other, told him to hide it, that he didnt want to lose her to that damn rat. But Shishou had decided for him, and showed her that thing he was trying to hide. The true form of the cat, the one that was released when that stupid bracelet was taken off. It was twisted and revolting, he knew, since his mom had killed herself over it.
