I am commanded to my duty, whatever the stakes.
That gesture can execute the task at hand.
I see the fear in your eyes, and I understand.
Its a surprise to me, looking down at you.
Im sorry dear friend, but it's something I must do.
Ive told you once, a thousand times more!
My companions will catch you, its this job they adore!
You took not my warnings, nor heeded my pleas.
As I told you that day, youre down on your knees.
Ohh Light how I wish, I could take it all back.
But with a snap of my fingers, I hear just a crack.
I hide my stains behind my low brim.
I wallow in shame, as I listen to him.
Congratulations, praise is given to me.
You have done well, youve done your duty.
As the lines file out, and the flickering lights fade.
I see only your face, and the lines your smile made.
I should have protected you, prevented that day.
But its not all my fault, it was the only way!

The sky was covered in crimson as Sozin’s comet flew over the planet.
“AAAHHHH!” Bolin leaped over the roof and slid down it in a panic. Titles broke off below him. Flames blew behind him just missing the frightened earth bender. Bolin hit the ground, rolling onto his feet. “Mako, cut it out!”
Mako landed on the rooftop of one of the many houses in the capital of the Fire Nation. “I told you I would roast you, Earth bender.” The raging fire bender tapped two of his fingers from both hands and swiftly moved them around to create lightning around him. He thrust his fingers out and blasted his lightning bolt down for at Bolin.

Korra rode Naga around a corner near the warehouse where everyone else was waiting. She leaped off of the polar bear dog and jogged over to the others. “You really found the people who changed the past?”
“Yes,” Mako said. He pointed over toward the warehouse. “They’re inside that warehouse.”
“Then let’s get going,” Korra said.
“We have to be careful,” Tenzin said. “If they notice us before we can get into a position to attack they could destroy the machine before we have a chance to use it to fix the past.”

“When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change.”
Tahno allowed you to lead him to the vanity in his bedroom the following week. Once again you seemed to believe he didn’t need his beauty sleep, not that he would call his current appearance beautiful at all. He could hardly see himself in the male reflected in the mirror. Though, he had to admit that he looked a lot better recently, not nearly as pale as he was last week and he actually bothered to be more motivated and bother with his appearance. Your hands were placed firmly on his shoulders and you pushed him down so that he sat on the stool. “Hmph, I remember when I was the one manhandling you,” Tahno said softly and a small smirk crossed his face. Now that he is seated you carefully you combed your fingers through Tahno’s messy hair and smile at him in the mirror. “You were such a jerk, dragging me around

The door creaked, and Asami turned around. Bolin came to her side.
"Hey… Are you alright?" he asked, sitting down beside her. "You looked a bit distraught at dinner." He had a concerned look on his face.
"Oh, it's nothing. I just… need a breather, you know, after all that's happened," Asami said, looking down at her hands, which were folded in her lap.
"Would you like to go out?" Bolin asked, then froze. "I – I mean, like… go out… into the city?"
Asami giggled. "Alright, sure." She and Bolin got up and walked together to the docks. They took a short ferry ride into the city.
"So, what would you like to do first?" Asami asked.

“See you at home heart breaker!”
“___, come out! We haven’t seen you in days and we are starting to worry,” Mako said as he pressed his ear lightly against your bedroom door. Bolin ran his hands through his hair then pressed his own ear to the door. Korra chuckled softly at the brothers and crossed her arms over her chest. “Please ___? Bolin and Mako have been staying at the Sato Estate since Amon’s attack on the Probending stadium and it was pretty hard to drag Bolin away from the pool and life of luxury,” Korra called and gently knocked on the door. The door swung open which caused Mako to fall down since he had been leaning against it while waiting to hear your reply. Korra flashed a lopsided grin at you. In return you gave Korra, Bolin, and Mako half a smile. “Sorry I made you worry,” you say genuinely and easily catch Pabu who jumped off of Bolin

Zuko knew that, but somehow it didnt happen. He wasnt running, he was kneeling on a bridge, staring over the edge at the freezing water below. Water that, minutes ago, had come alive and plucked Admiral Zhao from the bridge. Fool. He deserved it. Yet Zuko had still tried to help him, although he couldnt have said why. He watched Zhao sink from his sight, down into the canal.
The full moon shone in the night sky above him, as though nothing had ever happened. As though nothing had threatened to upset the careful balance the spirits held over the entire world. Zuko had never considered himself an especially spiritual person, but one did not spend years in Uncles company and not pick up on a few things.

Hey everyone. First of all, fuck Nickelodeon.
Their treatment of this series has been absolutely pathetic. This franchise is the best thing that’s ever happened to them – fuck Spongebob Squarepants - and yet when it comes to Korra they seem to want to take any chance they can get to screw them over.
Nick, these guys gave you The Last Airbender, arguably the greatest animated series ever made, you should let these guy do what they want on faith alone. Instead you seem to want to do anything in your power to fuck them over, and in this case blame them when ratings decline.
Nick, you’re Electronic Arts-ing your best ongoing show. For shame.

And how could Al have been so stupid! He was so mad, so intent on giving Ed the cold shoulder that he didn’t even think about what the weather was doing to him. Just because Al couldn’t feel the cold didn’t mean Ed wouldn’t. What if he was lost? This blizzard would kill him if he didn’t find shelter soon!
The snow was almost halfway up his shins and continuing to pile up at an alarming rate, and his big brother was nowhere to be found.
Al didn’t have a heart, but he felt like there was one being ripped out of his chest.

Blue, green, purple, yellow, and red; red being the overbearing one. They would come with all the different pains she was feeling. Blue for a cold pain, green for nausea, purple for god knows what, yellow for the harsh light that hit her all too sensitive eyes, and red was for the excruciating pain she felt radiating from her abdomen.Due Date Ch.16 EdWin2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Weak as they were, she lifted her eyes from her hand, and scoped out the hills of Resembool. A familiar sight, exactly the same as whe she was a child, vast and some parts still unknown to her. Only now, it was blanketed in a bright white, threatening to make her eyes shut as she stared at it. The white made it beautiful, but also lonely in a way. Like that white needed a friend to accompany it, just as Ed was accompanying her through the snowy ground.

When I met Hiroshi, I had high hopes for our future. He was the sweetest man I'd ever known, and one of the first persons to ever treat me with respect. When we married, all he wanted was to start a family with me, and I agreed. I swore to myself I wouldn't be like my mother. I would love my child, and give her everything she deserves. I thought there could be no man better to father a child than Hiroshi. On the night my Asami was born, I remember him holding her, promising to love and take care of her no matter what. I wish I'd known then that I married a liar.
The night of my death, the only thought that comforted me on my way to the spirit world was that my daughter would be in good hands. Even though I'd no longer be around, I thought she'd still be safe and loved. Now I wish I'd never been such a fool. I wish I kn

But there was hardly anything worth celebrating here. The killer loomed over him, his white hair standing out against the backdrop of the gloomy rainclouds. Even though the sunglasses he wore decolorized his eyes to a deep sepia, the hate in them gleamed at the boy through the obscuring glass well enough. “I will give you a moment to pray to God,” the man growled in a gruff, deep voice.
Ed clenched his fist. While he and Al had been running from this madman, his fear had slowly accumulated, and now, without alchemy to help him fight, it had solidified inside him, paralyzing him. Al’s cries of “Brother! Run away!” were wasted on him. His legs wouldn’t move. Maybe… maybe Ed knew that, even if he tried to run, there was no esca

Somewhere in the hospital, Winry had fought her way through her pain to give the both of them a son. Sure, meeting him without her was disheartening, but he wasn’t about to let this opportunity slip away from him. For a reason that he was aware of, but not completely accepting of, he felt like the baby was going to disappear, that he would just be gone if he waited to see him, if he hesitated.
And so, he kept his eyes forward and his feet moving. Winry was in the hands of the doctors, and he would see her soon. Hell, she’d probably immediately wake up and beat the shit out of him of he didn’t go see their son first.

Mako's first instinct was to ignore the noise and get on with his day. It sounded like a small animal, whining to get out of a box. He was about to start his motorcycle again, but then he heard Bolin's voice in his head.
