Time was moving ever so slowly, one can say it was almost painful. She took a light breath, her hands by her side, and her feet nervously shuffling in and out. Out of all the murmurs and worried faces, the sand beneath her twisting feet was all she noticed. It was time.
There was a silent and grave pause. As she took a non hesitated step forward, the crowd erupted with applause. Her face displayed no hint of emotion. It was as if her body wasn't hers, and that her steps were being taken by another. It wasn't until she reached the stage and faced her fellow district for it to truly sink in.
She shook the colorful man's hand with as much grace as she could. Her knees began to buckle slightly. Next was the male's drawing. Abner Kruschev. Except this boy boldly volunteered. A large roar overcame the area, similar to the sound of waves crashing in the palisades. Abner walked onto stage. His steps were full of confidence as he held his head high. He shook the colorful man's ha

"She'll be fine. It's nothing too serious. You can go in and visit her if you'd like."
He nodded and then dipped his head to Pema in thanks before walking into the room, immediately heading for the bed where Korra laid, cool water splashed all over her face to calm her fever. She was still awake, but just barely. He could see her deep blue eyes were only open halfway or less, but he expected nothing more. She'd gone out in the middle of the night a few days ago on a walk all alone because she needed to think and she hadn't brought her coat or any kind of weather protective clothing with her. It was no surprise that she'd gotten sick, especially with the way the temperature had been dropping and rising so oddly lately. One day it was freezing even without snow and the next day it was scorching hot. There wasn't much they could do about it except try to dress appropriately for the weather. But of course, with how stubborn Korra was, she refused to admit that even the A

Alice's feelings for Reginald are growing stronger but she refuses to admit it to herself let alone him. As with Reginald, his feelings for Alice have evolved beyond mere phyical attraction. He to is having trouble admitting to himself that is is possible that he is in love. So everything's pretty much cannon. Anyway, Alice's finance( whom I've dubbed Jonathan Dickinson) from the arranged marriage her parents set up before she left home is back and he won't take no for an answer.

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

The March Hare looked up from his cup of tea in the direction the familar voice was coming from. Sure enough, a moment later Reginald came bounding through the tea garden gate at top speed. Ears scrunched his eyes shut and braced himself for the multitude of crashes and flailing limbs that would result in Reg's inevitable collision with the tea table. Whether it was sheer luck or some amazing feat of dexterity that only he could pull off, Reg came to a skidding halt, arms outstretched, abdemon centimeters from the edge, his upper body hovering percariously over the asorted tea acutrement. The laws of physics could not be defied when it came to the displacement of the almighty hat, which kept going as its owner came to a stop. It soared over the surface of the table to come to rest mere inches from where Ears sat. Ears glanced at the millinary projectile and shifted his gaze to his unusually hatless companion.
"Fifteen feet," he stated, clearly impres

He had sleek black hair and bright green, peircing eyes. Despite his inital dashing impression, further examination of his person showed that his features were to sharp to be truly goodlooking and his straight pointed nose seemed to be perminatly stuck in the air. It's overall effect added a very haughty factor to his appearence.Defying Logic Chapter 26 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"No, I am." answered Alice stepping forward.

Ariadne was trying to catch up with him through a typical mid-May tourist flock, all ogling the Parisian landmarks lining the Champs Élysées. It was partly due to said tourist flock that she was trailing behind him. She blamed the other half of the problem on the fact that he had told her to look nice"But I always look nice." "Nicer."for this "meet and greet" (which, in Arthurese tended to mean "coercion"), and she had subsequently made the terrible decision to wear a pair of turquoise Mary-Jane heels that, while slightly less painful than the ordinary formal women's shoes, were still Hell on Earth to walk in, and she was running.
Also, Arthur was walking quickly.
And, finally, he stopped walking and turned around to giv

The sound of the waves against the ship lulled Ser Jorah in and out of the only sleep he'd had in days. His beard was in desperate need of a trim, and the grime on his arms and face seemed to make him look tanner than he actually was. The sun beat down on him and the Dothraki. The heat was not nearly as bad as in the Red Waste, but bad enough to make labor hard and sleep easy. The knight leaned against a barrel filled to the brim with leftover valuables gathered from Qarth. His boots were crossed, outstretched in front of him. Occasionally he would wake with a start, seek out the Khaleesi with his eyes, then fade back into his light sleep.
She was always there, in the back of his mind. She was his first priority. Her safety, her satisfaction. Sleep hadn't come easy to him since he swore himself to her. To obey her, to serve her, to protect her with everything he had. Sleep, it seemed now, was a waste of time. Or rather a selfi
Alice and Mad Hatter: Mad LoveThe White Queen hastily reached into her pocket and pulled out a bottle from it. It was a small bottle, rather skinny, containing a light, purple liquid. She handed it to Alice, giving her a sad smile.Alice and Mad Hatter: Mad Love5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Take it. You deserve it. You've EARNED it. You've saved us all."
Alice stared longingly at the bottle, knowing it would grant her the one wish that she desired the most if she was to drink the purple liquid bubbling inside of it. She took the bottle, held it up closely to her beautiful face, blinking at the sight. "If..." she said quietly. "If I drink this, will... Will it take me home...?" The White Queen nodded slowly. "If that is what you wish," she said, rather uncomfortably.
Alice stared at it some more, then, sighing, slowly twisted off the black lid that was keeping the liquid from spilling out, and tossed it aside. She heard gasps of surprise, shock, and even disappointment.
She slowly turned around, only to see each and every one of her friends staring longingly at her. "Please

Epic (2013)- Queen Tara/Ronin-Epic (2013)- Queen Tara/Ronin- When We Were YoungEpic (2013)- Queen Tara/Ronin-2 years ago in Romance More Like This
When they were young, it was all so much easier. She was just Tara, not the Queen of the Forest, and he was only Ronin, not the captain of the guard. Two young kids with no inkling of their destinies.
They spent their time chasing each other through the wilds of the forest. Tara was in love with it and, by extension, so was Ronin. She would grab his hand and lead him through the lush green of the woods, admiring all the colors on display.
Her face would light up at the blooming of every flower and the bubbling brook brought out her laughter. Ronin wasn’t enamored with the forest in the same way she was; he saw the practicality in structure of each tree, the necessity for the falling of leaves. But when he was with Tara, her constant wonder brought out some of his own.
The pair was seen by everyone as inseparable. Nearly every morning, when the flowers rose to meet the sun, they could see Tara running towards Ronin’s ho
