I Had to LeaveI'm trying to apologize for the damage I've done.I Had to Leave3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm trying to apologize for the man I've become.
Because I stand with my feet in a bloody mess,
I'm undeserving of your sweet forgiveness.
You wonder if I take pleasure in this savage game,
Or if I play for any possible gain.
But I promise, all I wanted was for you to be happy.
Some of my sweetest memories are of you laughing.
You wanted to find out why I was leaving.
You wanted to find out if my promises ever had meaning.
I always said what you wanted to hear,
Just to make you want to stay near.
Whether I felt that way or not is a mystery to ponder,
That is, if you care now that "we" are no longer.
Now there is only one thing left for me to say,
And that's that I hope you find a man that'll stay.
I hope that he will actually earn your love.

Together we can while away the moonlight
as long as I stay by your side.
Listen to me and close your eyes,
sweet dreams are my promise;
this is your lullaby.

Clipped - (Flightless side story)The dry air pumping through the small RV was barely enough to keep it cool as William drove down the empty road. It carved through the Texas hill country, the sun shimmering off the black top in the heat. Mid summer here wasn’t like mid summer back home in Colorado, where the highest it got was eighty, and he was definitely feeling it. Pushing his blond hair out of his eyes as he drove, he wiped the sweat off his hand onto the seat, turning the air up more.Clipped - (Flightless side story)1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

AN UNOFFICIAL SEQUEL TO FOREVER
The sound of her father's gentle calling barely registered with her but still she managed to stop and say in an even tone of voice, "I'm fine, Dad," before continuing along the corridor toward her bedroom.
As her family watched her walk away, the blind earthbender stepped up beside the torn old man and told him, "She's lying." Toph barely managed to get the words out before her throat constricted and her sobbing continued.
Wrapping his arm around her shaking shoulders, Hakoda replied, "She'll be lying to herself for a long time, Toph." His arms tightened around her then as he added, "We all will." Tears began to roll along all their faces and everyone gathered around the grieving pair. Each one of them was caught up in the tender embrace and every hallway of the Fire Nation palace was filled with the sound of their endless weeping.

Clouds swirled dully in a dreary, drab, and utterly depressing shade of gray. Humidity hung heavily in the air, portending the monsoon season in the Fire Nation. It was nasty and sticky and dark out: all the more reason to say inside and sleep in.
These were Katara's thoughts as she stay curled up under the sheets of her new bed, burying her head farther into the plush pillow. Thus, when Fire Lord Zuko moved lazily from her side and began stripping himself of his sleepwear, she protested grumpily.
"Mmm, come back," she muttered, turning over with what seemed to be a great deal of effort. "It's too early."
Zuko glanced over at her with mild amusement as he tied the strings of his loose red pants in a careless bow at his hips. Her eyes were mere slits of sapphire against the bronze of her skin, watching his every move. "It's nearly eleven," he argued placidly.
"Yeah, it's too early," she repeated.
He chuckled lightly under his breath. "Sorry," he apologi

He was always in my dreams. Every night without fail he'd be there.
I sat up in bed, breathing heavily, a cold sweat clinging to my skin. Putting a hand to my head, I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to calm myself. Why was this happening? So much time had passed since I'd last seen him, so why did I still think about him when I had no reason to?
I jumped at the sound of a soft knocking at my door. "Katara? You up yet?" Came the familiar voice of Aang, my best friend and boyfriend for a year.
"Y-yeah. What is it Aang?"
"We got a letter from the Fire lord! Hurry up and join us in the kitchen so we can open it!" He always sounded so enthusiastic. I smiled to myself and pushed away the bed covers, hesitating as my blue eyes caught the paleness of my skin. My hands trembled as I held them up, a flash of memory coming back to me.
The lighting, the pain. 'Help him Katara! You have to help him,' was all I could think.
"Zuko!" I yelled and rushed forward, holding my hand

And she was anonymous but I knew her quite well. It was raining that day, and I gave up. If it isn\'t love then I rather not feel at all but that itself is a sin. I heard this familiar voice in the background; his voice was dull, frail, and very unnoticeable if you weren\'t paying attention. He reminded me what love was and how keeping away from it was the best option, he reminded me that I was wrong and pathetic for even thinking the way I did--but he forgave me. He told me suicide was an easy way out but only pussies take the easy way out. He wasn\'t anonymous but I didn\'t know him at all. He told me to wake up and I did.
My apartment was smaller then others, a lot smaller, bedroom size to be exact. I didn\'t have any need for space. I lived alone. No one came in or out of my apartment except me, I hardly ever went out anyways. I slept on the floor, I didn\'t have any hot water, my fridge was empty, and my room overall was empty.

She still couldn't believe her current life. Just a few years ago she was traveling with the Avatar and her brother in a quest for Aang to master the elements and take down the Firelord. He was successful, and Firelord Ozai died at the end of the final battle. Katara always knew that Aang would be able to save the world. Still, she couldn't believe how her life turned out afterward. She never thought that she would end up falling in love and marrying her former enemy. Because that's what he was: her former enemy. And now

"Your room, Princess Katara," a servant murmured, gesturing vaguely to an almost painfully orate door. The servant's voice wavered as she said princess; clearly, Azula had led her to believe that all royal women were demanding and cruel.
With scrutinizing eyes, Katara looked over the skinny girl. "What is your name?"
A look of fear swept over the face of the questioned servant: whenever Azula had asked for the names of palace staff, she was either going to use them for target practice or have them banished for not accomplishing one of her outrageous, mundane tasks to perfection. "Kai La, p-princess," she managed to stammer.
"Then thank you, Kai La," offered Katara, giving her a hint of a bow to show her gratitude. Again, Kai La's features were consumed with surprise before a delicate smile crept over her thin lips. The princess of the Southern Water Tribe, bowing to a palace maid!
"Of course! I mean, uh, you are very welcome, princess." Red faced and dazed,

Aang, Suki, and Zuko looked at the girls and Sokka in confusion.
Whats wrong with cactus juice? Aang asked.
Sokka and cactus juice equals disaster. Katara then proceeded to try and take the juice away from Sokka.

For Lack of a Better WordKatara stood on the beach of Ember Island, arms folded and eyes fixed out on the water. She stared out at the full moon hanging low over the horizon. They had returned from the play a few hours ago and everyone had gone to bed. The play had exhausted most everyone; Toph was really the only one in remotely good spirits when they returned. She had quoted her stage self, punched Aang in the arm and announced she was going to bed. Sokka and Suki had gone for a walk, Aang had remained silent and simply disappeared into the house. Zuko had done the same and Katara had followed suit.For Lack of a Better Word5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"It was okay," I said giving a side glance to Zuko who returned the glace as he grabbed his pack. I slipped by Aang and jumped to the ground.
Aang followed and landed next to me, "What about the Southern Raiders?"
I grit my teeth, I had not forgotten, but Zuko had helped take my mind of them. I clenched my fists and looked away from the curious boy in front of me. "We found him," I said darkly, then shoved by the avatar.

The night was silent as darkness crept in, casting eerie shadows in every corner, in every room, and in every crevice of the large isolated royal beach house on Ember Island. A cold wind swept by, creating a howling sound like that of an injured animal, causing a chill to run down the spine of any who heard its call. Large clouds slithered in the dark sky and would occasionally conceal the full moon that hung in the heavens, cutting off any light and rendering the night pitch black.
The gang huddled together around the warmth of the bonfire in the middle of the courtyard of the quiet beach house as the day drew to an end and t
Never Quite DiscoveredThere was a general feeling of weight on those around the fire that night. They'd all gone to see a ridiculous play in town that made them all look like cartoon characters, and everyone had come away with different feelings about it. Being the newest member of the gang, Zuko liked to observe rather than speak most of the time. It was a new role for him, more submissive than he'd been before, but he was slowly learning that thinking before speaking, letting others have their say first gave him less opportunity to get himself in trouble.Never Quite Discovered4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Toph was the only one who'd been truly happy with her portrayal; a big muscular man who could squash anyone under his foot. She talked animatedly with Sokka and Suki as they'd all made their way back to their camp. Aang and Katara were the quietest he'd ever seen them, and Zuko didn't quite know what to make of it.
Now, as the fire was turning to embers and the embers turning to coals, everyone began drifting off to their own tents. Katara and Aang still
