The gun was set against my temple. My heart was beating quickly, pounding like a caged bird against my ribcage, and I could feel the perspiration rolling down my back and sticking my hair to my neck. Blood was leaking steadily from the wound in my leg, coating my hands as I tried to apply pressure. I looked up into the dark eyes of the boy asking me the question.
I had been so kind to this boy. I'd smiled at him just yesterday and said good morning. He'd nodded and reciprocated the smile. We were practically friends by Columbine standards. I looked to the boy standing beside him and frowned. I was also kind to him. I didn't get it. Why were they doing this? Why were they hurting us when we'd done nothing to them? I'd only ever been nice, but maybe that was the problem.
I swallowed the lump in my throat and looked at Richard. He was sitting against the building, his hands locked in prayer. His lips moved swiftly and I could tell he was sending one last message u

Ah, well. Welcome one and all to my slight break from writing Fanfiction (I swear I'll get back to it soon, I just need to get that stupid part for my computer at home, since I have no time to update/no way to reach my betas at school. 'Mutters darkly') to lend a helping hand to anyone who's interested! If you didn't get the concept in the summary, I'm WingsOfMorphius and I'm here to offer you some tips and tricks to character creation to help you avoid the dreaded Mary/Gary Sues.
To start, I'm gonna educate you guys on exactly what a Mary/Gary Sue is. (We all have to learn somewhere, after all…) Generally speaking, these are characters that are too 'perfect' to be believable. They're the ones that are the smartest, prettiest, strongest, fastest, most charismatic person in the world and who have no flaws whatsoever. The main character usually falls in love with them on sight,

MaskedTunnel Rat returned to their Cobra Truck, pockets filled with edibles. The others would most likely turn up their noses at what he found, but at least he wouldn't be eating canned peas for the fifth time in a row.

The swordsman stood predictably voiceless.
"Ah don't tell me you can't stand a little outdoors stench either," Tunnel Rat bemoaned. Not too long ago, he'd actually been 'politely' asked to find somewhere to shower before even thinking of boarding the Coyote. It didn't smell that bad.
Receiving a small shake of the head, the shorter man wondered why Snake Eyes was blocking his way into the the truck. He obviously wanted something, but gave no indication as to what, and of course didn't say a single word either.
"So you can't say, like, anything, right?"
A curt nod.
"Is that by choice, or did you take some grievous wound to the throat?"

Cool. Sidewalks will be nice and busy. No one will notice him. He carefully pushed through the crowds, avoiding the busy folk trying to head home or wherever the hell they needed to be; he didn't care.

Storm Shadow stayed with Snake Eyes the entire 2 hour flight to the nearest citadel. Snake Eyes thankfully remained unconscious the entire time. Storm Shadow was certain the man would have been howling in pain if he still had his voice. Chances are something that low in one's body was serious, and to stop a ninja dead in his tracks- a ninja that had been trained in almost every martial arts form known, taken more injuries per day than breaks, and recovered from those injuries by sheer will power until they were bandaged later by a friend- this aliment wasn't' going to relent on its own.

When Jason said Camp Jupiter was different I didn't know he meant that different. "Jason." I said he looked up at me from where he was sitting on deck with Leo and piper. "yeah" he had gotten he memory back for the most part.

Capture the Flag that night promised to be fun. Campers against Hunters/magicians. I'd seen these kids from the so-called House of Life fight before and they were seriously impressive. It was definitely going to be one of the more competitive games.
The six kids refused to wear armor for various reasons, even a few I didn't understand like, "the residual life aura from the leather will interfere with our magic." Ultimately, I got the feeling that they just didn't want to look like idiots so we let it slide and assumed they could fend for themselves.
I briefly explained the rules. I assigned a Hunter to each of the magicians to help guide the kids in the woods. "The creek is the boundary line," I told them. "No killing, no maiming. Half the Apollo cabin decided to sit this out and they'll be serving as medics along with the satyrs. Play starts when the conch horn sounds."

She held on to him tighter and yelled "Please Cato pprrreeeetttyyy please?? For me?" Cato then looked down again, and said "No! Get off me!!!" he then proceeded to push her off him. I got to admit that I did smirk when Daisy fell on her butt with a thud while yelling "No!! Cato come back to me!!"

It was the day of the first match
Between two of Hogwarts' infamous houses
Every creature, human and ghost were stirring
Even the thieving kitchen mouse!
In the Great Hall, it was extremely loud. Louder than the usual. Many students who of different houses travelled over to the Gryffindor table to wish Harry, the team's captain and seeker, good luck. No one really went to the Slytherin tablet to wish them luck, but they didn't really care and if someone did actually bother, they'd only receive a cold shoulder.
Blaise, who was dressed in his chaser uniform, nudged Draco by the shoulders. "Hey, look. Potter's center of attention again. Lovely, huh?"

While the initial idea of beginning a Pro-Bending team was appealing to the three, it quickly proved to be a difficult arrangement. Much to their shared displeasure, the only slot that Toza could get them in for them to practice was early in the morning, time that Mako was meant to spend working and Bolin in school. And while this immediately didn't check in well with the Firebender, with a little convincing from both Korra and Bolin, he agreed to on the condition that his brother would put in extra hours for studying so that he wouldn't fall behind in his education.
Korra was grateful for the introduction of Pro-Bending in her life, as it provided a distraction from the growing non-bender violence in the city and her duties as the Avatar that she should have been fulfilling to protect people. She would stare at newspaper articles citing Equalist rallies or other disturbing progresses for hours, her mind racing with her responsibilities, and sometimes, Mako would

I pull my hair into a ponytail and stick two knives into my hair. I shove a few more into my pockets, wanting to make sure I have enough artillery for the battle. Cato puts an extra sword in his pant-loop and carries the sword he favors.
I take a deep breath, "You ready?" My heart is beating incredibly quick, either from the adrenaline of a kill or the fear of death.
Cato examines me starting at the feet and trailing his eyes all the way to meet mine. He's looking at me like he's trying to memorize my every curve and limb. "As ready as I'll ever be," Cato smirks.

Caught by a Cobra
It was over. The Joes had lost the war against Cobra and their base was taken over by the end of the first day. Most of the troops had been captured, and some had been scattered to the winds. Snake Eyes was one of the few that hadn't been caught yet, but living on the run was certainly no fun for the black clad ninja. The last few months had been sheer hell, running from cave to cave in the higher mountains of the Rockies. He had to keep moving though, never staying in the same cave for more than a night. The lower mountains were crawling with Cobra operatives, and even setting a foot outside of the caves during daylight hours was going to get him captured just like the others.
Snake Eyes had been listening into the conversations fro

My father walks lightly over to my mother and places his hand on her shoulder as she cries. He looks broken down as well.
"Remember son, remember everything you have learned from the Training Center, from me, and even from Clove," my father states, "Don't let them beat you, you're stronger than them. You can do this. I believe in you, and I will be watching."

I smirk. The Peacekeepers drag my mom and dad away. My mother screams, kicks, and yells at the guards for taking away her son. They simply close the door on her.
