Sharikola swung the sword in a wide overhead arc. The runes painted on the wall appeared to burn in his vision as he threw his concentration onto them. The whole room shook with a fervent, percussive force that rattled the crates and the stones in the chamber wall.
Shari did not forget what had been taken from him. Shari did not forgive, despite what the nation decreed.
With a wide, round motion, he sheathed his sword, then stood up straight. Although he was small and thin, even for a coni, he had keen muscular strength, which showed though his thin summer fur. He never felt winded anymore, even after going through the kata three times in one afternoon.
The kata was of his own invention. Though heavily based on the G

The reaping ceremony has always disgusted me. The whole idea of the Hunger Games is just so barbaric that I am unbelievably thankful each year my name doesn't come out of that glass ball. Looking around me, I see the terrified and paler-than-usual faces of more than a hundred kids from ages 12 to 18, all of them saying the same desperate prayer I am: Please don't let it be me this time!
We are lined up according to our ages. Like rows of grain from District 9 ready to be chopped down with the glinting scythe of Effie Trinket's brightly colored fingernails. As if the only reason the adults of Panem have children is to put them in these infernal lines to be chopped down and thrown into a death match disguised as a grand honor. To me, that's all we seem to be to the people of the Capitol: ears of grain sown for the sole purpose of perishing in a sifter that only a
Sweet Child of Mine My world changed the day he was born. I remember looking down at his small form in my arms and struggling to comprehend the new life I held. The world seemed so bright with his peaceful face looking toward mine. While our surroundings were chaotic, I did not even realize their presence. He was all I knew. He had ceased to cry for some time, and it looked as if he was trying to make sense of his new surroundings. I am sure they must have seemed so foreign and unwelcoming to him. I looked at his small face as he yawned and slowly drifted off to sleep. I wondered what his young mind thought of sleep. I never looked away from his face that night. I couldnt. In fact, for several nights I was unable to find sleep. I wanted to make certain everything was not a dream, that he was truly in my life. My husband failed to sleep for more than short spans of time. He felt quite the same as me, possiSweet Child of Mine8 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

And it hasn't ceased since.
I was born to fight
Against a Monster far greater than I
Could ever understand.
The city hemorrhages from the inside
As the world averts its eyes.
It's alright; they are my own scars.
Who else can taste the bitterness
Of my chains; of my lashes;
Of my imprisonment; of my anguish;
Of my own crown of thorns?
Despite it all, there will be a day
When the gnashing of teeth will end,
And the Dark shall flee with fear.
One day I will stand in triumph
With the other victorious soldiers
Amongst the ashes in the Sun.

Loki wakes Sigyn up in the middle of the night and she's less than happy about it.
Time To Wake Up
Sigyn had been deep in a dreamless, contented sleep; and she'd been there for some time. It had been the type of sleep that, if uninterrupted, she would wake from in the morning and feel utterly refreshed. The key word there, of course, was had. Because she woke to a familiar hand on her shoulder that shook her lightly until she was pulled from sleep. The intrusion to her would-be-satisfying sleep meant that she was scowling before her eyes opened.
"Loki, I swear, if you don't have a good reason for waking me up, then I am going to make your life miserable for the next twenty four hours."
"You can try," he replied.

Chapter Four: Sucking It Up
It took Sigyn some time to make her way to the palace, mostly because she was purposefully dawdling in an attempt to delay the imminent. She was still replaying in her mind how she'd ended up in this situation, unsure of what it was exactly that she'd done to get Loki to focus his tricks on her.
Nothing. Sigyn knew that she'd done nothing to the Prince of Asgard; but for some reason he was still choosing to play his games with her as the centre piece. With her as the fool. She frowned to herself, an expression of hers that was becoming all too common since she'd met Loki that morning. Was it only this morning? she wondered. It feels like he's been harassing me for days.

The two of them were walking back to their rooms after their wedding celebration had ended when a nervous excitement crept over Sigyn at the thought of their destination. She had never seen Loki's rooms before, and they were something that had been intriguing her for some time. She knew Loki, and she knew his love for things out of the norm; their courting had been enough to prove that. So what would Loki's rooms look like?
They came to the end of a long hall and stopped before an unassuming door. Sigyn looked up at Loki, waiting for him to make the next move; these were his rooms initially after all. Loki just grinned as he lifted her into his arms.

Bananas (unlike pears) are good; always bring one to parties.

Evil comes in many degrees and packages.
Feel down? Don't use a "Bliss" patch.
Go for the eye(stalks).
Hospitals are bad; avoid whenever possible.

Just smile and nod if the Doctor asks you something you don't understand.
Killing is not (always) the answer.

When Sigyn left the room in which she'd met the Queen, she was feeling a lot better about things. But Loki, it seemed, was not too happy to be absent from the conversation she'd had with his mother, as she found him anxiously waiting for her in the hallway.
She was surprised to see that emotion troubling Loki. He didn't seem the type to get worried like this, yet she could tell how serious he was by the way he took her hand somewhat rigidly. Odd, she thought. He seems so concerned about what just happened... But Sigyn couldn't quite understand why; the conversation she'd had with the Queen had been perfectly fine.

She can easily run rings even the fastest of humans, which she uses mainly to run away from people that she thinks will try to hurt her.

What makes us love such a man as he?
Why do our hearts flutter at his smile?
How our knees waver at his voice!
See what his hazel stare can do!
Maybe it is because there is none other like him
For he is the perfect man, a shining star
Such a jewel, rare treasure indeed
He can easily steal our hearts and mystify our minds
How we swoon at him in billowing capes
Deafening gasps at dramatic performances
So noble when clutching a sword
And heroic appearing through a storm
O, nothing can break our undying devotion!
Dedicating ourselves is our number one notion!

So I took your advice

I bottled all the hurt up

No one can hear her screams,
