I am standingIt's been months since I wanted to break out of my body. Okay, that's a lie. But it's been days. Days since I've felt static scorch underneath my skin, felt colours cutting into my eyes, had to explain that these aren't metaphors. There are so many ways you can get used to living. I wonder if anyone else feels empty when they don't have creatures clawing up through their throat.I am standing1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
I don't know what art is, or what okay is. I like to believe I know it when I feel it, but I'm not so sure I would. I think people expect me to be a lot more insightful than I am right now. I don't think they take into account that boredom is stressful, and stress can shatter you like roots in concrete. Maybe I'm growing. But I don't even know if I'm bored. I feel like a lot of different people, or a lot of aspects of different people, all trying to learn how to stand one another.

The sand only gave her minor problems as of late, only made things slightly fuzzy. A beach was like a massive army of tiny earthen soldiers, each one pinging directions in the form of vibrations off of its myriads of brothers. It was overwhelming at times, with its millions of different angles and perspectives. Tonight, though, she was glad for the imprecise vision. It helped that her Earthbending sight was in tune with her heart and mind. In a strange way, it was comforting to feel so scattered.
She could feel the tide caressing the sandy beach, feel the throb of it against the ocean floor. To her it was an almost tangible sound of silk on silk. Even though she didn't feel the water the way she supposed a Waterbender could, she could still sense it. It felt like the bodies of two lovers pressed against one another, and this image made a flush creep along her cheeks to rival the warmth of the night air.
Images like that had been plaguing her for the past few days of thei

The night started clear and cloudless, but by the dawn everything around them would be drenched in shades of crimson and smoke.
The acrid stench of smoldering earth and terror permeated the night and clawed at Toph's lungs until she was coughing violently. There were almost two dozen Firebenders and numerous tanks surrounding their camp from what she could tell. The rush of her own adrenaline made her nearly deaf as well as blind, making everything hazy and fragmented. She'd never choked in battle, but this was different tonight. Something was very, very wrong this time.
She raced down the twisting narrow path, barely avoiding trees and other obstacles in her way. She finally gave up the thought of surprising her enemies and she began to use the earth to rocket herself forward, great pillars pistoning from the ground like stony extensions of her own legs. She pushed on, heedless of the tree limbs slapping at her arms and face, until she stumbled onto the horrific battlefiel

He floated in nothingness. Words were spoken by disembodied voices. Light shone all around. It was warm and inviting and he was part of it. He was the light. He was free.
A touch ghosted across his arm. He was being pulled down, away from the light, back to the voices. He tried to fight. He tried to get away. He tried to fly.
He sank into the world of noise and darkness.
When Sokka regained consciousness, he immediately wished he would pass out again. Pain ricocheted through his broken body. Everything hurt. Opening his eyes was going to be another exercise in pain, so he tried to bring his arm up to cover them. It wouldn't move. He risked cracking open one eyelid. Th

Plains of Konoha
6 out of the 10 Akatsuki members were on the ground. Nearly everyone was overwhelmed by the power of the couple. The Akatsuki never planned that Naruto and Tenten would be such a problem. Even though they knew they would be facing the 9-tailed jinchuuriki, they had underestimated the power of not only him, but his wife. Trying to calm their tension down, everyone looked at each other.
"This is a bigger problem, than with the other bijuu," Zetsu said as he stuck his head out of a tree.
"To think they made 6 of our members look like amateurs in unprecedented," Konan said with a smile. The true test of Naruto and Tenten's power was soon coming into play. As the Akatsuki talked, Naruto looked at Tenten.
"So how much of your chakra have you used?" he asked her with a smile. Tenten turned to Naruto.
"Oh about 5% of it, maybe less," she said as she thought about it.
"How about you hun?" she said as she turned to him.
"Umm maybe about 3% of it," He said with a confident smile.

The floor is bare and dusty, hastily swept to clear only the largest of debris. The high ceiling that once arched neatly in the middle now sags between wooden ribs. Although one can imagine it caving in as soon as it gets tired enough, the high ceiling will serve to circulate fresh air to the fanatics who will soon congregate below. Only their energy, harnessed in the form of a fiery, graceful martial art, can transform this old gym. The vehemence of capoeira can impart life and power to whatever it touches. In the meantime, the room sleeps, unused and indifferent.
Then they come, people of diverse shapes and sizes and colours, and all that dull stillness changes. The capoeira class falls into the pattern of warm up movements. The gritty floor scrapes against their calloused feet. After an hour of arduous practice, some stretch, some gulp their water desperately, and some apply athlete's tape to their blistered feet.
The capoeiristas gather, tired but enthusiastic, at one end of the ro

Author's Note: This is a crossover fanfiction between the video games Saint's Row 2 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Although Alexis is the customized character I have made for Saint's Row 2 and is copyright TEi, I do not own any of the characters or places associated with these games. This is a story made explicitly for entertainment purposes, nothing more and nothing less.
This story is labeled with a Mature Warning because of talks about typical, and probably stereotypical, gang activities, as well as heavy cuss words.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the support you guys have given my work across multiple websites and wrote a journal about that here:
I'm just not sure what I can be doing to help myself out of this whole situation, but felt that it couldn't hurt to ask.
With that business out of the way, I hope you all enjoy this heavy chapter - I put a lot of myself into it and it's probably the chapter I have combed over and tweaked the most so far (something I actually don't do a lot). It's one of the most important chapters in the whole story.

Takoda and Ty Lee
It has been a year since Ty Lee and I had met and started to train together I didn't think it was possible for our bond to get any closer but I was proved to be wrong one night. It started out on a late night during a full moon we were just about to start a long training session between the two of us but something wasn't right. Ty Lee seemed to be lacking today and her mood wasn't as happy as what I was usually use too, she had me worried but she assured me that she was fine just tired. She asked if she could cut down on training for tonight and head to bed early which I agreed with because I didn't want her to exert herself. I had watched as she walked away her steps seemed very droopy and her feet slightly dragged something wasn't right but I figured she'd tell me in her own time when she was ready too. I had trained a little longer than what I would usually do but I just felt the need to get some stuff off my mind.

All I've ever wanted is a word. I want a word for the ache between my xylophone ribs that doesn't make my loved ones shudder with misinterpretation and distrust of my volatile heart; I want a word to encompass the missing parts that I cannot remember the names of; I want a word that will explain to people that it's okay that I'm not whole, because not-whole doesn't always equate to being broken.
I can tell you that my heart aches the way a blade of grass bends in a summer storm, my skin feels like drying watercolours on pavement and I can feel the highway of my veins inside my flesh, but I can't tell you that I have the word I need. I don't have it, but my knees are puckered from prayer that someone out there does and that one day they'll press poetry into my ears and share it with me like a secret.

Disclaimer: Saints Row belongs to THQ and Nickelodeon shows belong to themselves. Dont sue me please I dont have any money! Because both Saints Row and Nickelodeon games are both made by THQ, I decided what if I put them together with a dash of originality?
Notes: Before this teaser starts, the story takes in an urban setting and an alternative universe where the characters dont have powers, the fairies and robots are human, and the ghosts from DP are still alive just pale. So, no complaints like Why is Danny driving a car where he can just fly? or Why arent they bending?
The island state of Nickelodeon is in despair political corruption and crime run rampant.

'Damn that Espio.......' I thought as I tore down the highway in my BMW M3 GTR. I had just got out of Westopolis after a run in with the cops. They recently started cracking down on speeders for some reason. And of course, that made yours truly a prime target. They had started to make vehicles to match even my speed. Which surprised the hell outta me, I have to admit. Supersonic cars? Who knew? So I left that place with my M3 that I got just for the hell of it and tore off toward the closest town......Station Square.
Station Square: 0600 hours
I finally made it to Station Square. I thought this would provide me some safe haven from any police action.....but I was wrong. As I first came into the town, a pretty pink hedgehog in a red RX-8 pulled up next to me.
