Cullen closed his eyes as he felt the warm breath of the mage's words against his cheek and ear.
As much as he knew this was wrong, a templar falling for a mage, he found that he could not stop himself. He had grown to care for her far more then he would care to admit. She slowly pulled herself back from Cullen, allowing him to fully take in her beauty. Soft auburn curls that were usually tied into a bun fell loosely around her face, framing the golden green eyes that pierced his soul. He slowly brought his hands up, gently cupping her face and moving it towards his own.
"I've never done this before, Cullen. I might be-"
Cullen silenced her as he carefully brought his mouth to hers. The kiss started off slowly, neither one wanting to frighten the other away. But the awkwardness quickly burned away in their passion for one another. Cullen placed one hand on t

His first week on the job, and after many hours of staring at the library doors in boredom at the lack of life in the tower, he jumps when the door opens with a bang, a senior enchanter storming out after a small lithe woman who seems to be furious.Arguments5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Cautiously edging ever so slowly towards the library doors lest he be thrown across the room by said angry elven mage, he raises an eyebrow when he sees that the enchanter she is arguing with is none other than Wynne, a respectful woman who rarely ever argues or gets angry. He hears that they are discussing abominations, and once he makes his presence known the elder woman nods at him whereas the girl crosses her arms over her chest and sends him a glare that surpasses even that of Greagoir with its ferocity.

Zevran/Grey Warden (m/m)
A pair of sea-green eyes stared upwards, right eye twitching slightly as the young elf glared up at Sten. The Qunari just stared emotionlessly back down at him, dark eyes betraying nothing but a low contempt for the much too small elf before him.
The two did not speak a word, only stared at each other Well, the Elvin warrior glared up at his comrade, but still...
"What is it you wish of me, Grey Warden?" The low voice made the small elf all the angrier. No matter how much he poked or prodded this stupid Qunari, he couldn't get a reaction! Now could he get the idiot to like him! For Maker's sake, he had admitted the filthy Mabari Yivon was a warrior! Was Sten racist or something?!

Mistress, Princess, Murderer, QueenWhen Roy Mustang first met Riza Hawkeye, he did not yet consider her royalty. In those first few months, she was two things to him: the young mistress of the Hawkeye household and an enigma. Riza was a very guarded girl, keeping to herself most of the time and speaking to Roy only when necessary; if she could, she would only respond to his questions with a small nod or a quick shake of her head. At first, Roy wasn't sure what to make of her. After all, the women he had lived with before coming to live with Riza and her father had never been quiet; they would always find something to talk about. It would've been easy for Roy to dismiss Riza's silence as her being cold if not for her most expressive feature: her eyes. Roy had been captivated by her eyes, big, tawny orbs that always had the slightest shine to them. These organs always gave away her true feelings, her real thoughts on things. He saw something in those eyes, a heart breaking display that, once he saw it, he wanted to eradicMistress, Princess, Murderer, Queen2 years ago in Romance More Like This

Summary: Gifts come in varying flavors and, as always, Katara always wins.
The chocolate dripped from the spoon onto her waiting tongue. Decadent and dark, sweet with a touch of spice; just like her. The red of her Fire Nation clothing complimenting said dark flesh as she lounged on their huge bed. Zuko knew of her sweet tooth and it took some searching to find just the right flavors, the right consistency, the right everything. The little village on the outskirts of the Earth Kingdom specialized in this particular delicacy. He vaguely remembered passing by all those years ago during his search for the Avatar. Now it was a search for his wife. For someone so giving, she was certainly particular with her tastes. It had to be from that one vendor third in from the corner, the particular flavors she loved, and all in large quantities.
O/K: It's a Wonderful ShipThe sounds were gone. Every single one of them. The muffled cries, and the languid groans, and the short, greedy intakes of breath, and the rustle of two voices whispering deliriously in the dark... All gone. Replaced by silence. Piercingly cold, oppressive, almost palpable silence. She had not noticed when, or how, it had crept into the room - or rather, when, or how, he had let it creep into the room - but there it was, pressing its clammy hands against her chest and throat. It surrounded her, smothered her; she breathed it in instead of air, and its freezing touch scorched her lungs and made her heart well up with pain that would, sooner or later, burst out onto the surface.O/K: It's a Wonderful Ship2 years ago in Drama More Like This

A smile curled the edge of his lips. His eyes were open, but fixed somewhere beyond her. As she moved, the hands about her wrists loosened and fell away.
'No,' she whispered. 'Akkarin.' Grabbing his hands, she sent her mind inward. Nothing. Not even the slightest spark of life.
He had given her too much power.
He had given her everything.
With shaking hands, Sonea ran her fingers over his face, then bent forward and kissed his lifeless mouth.
Then she curled herself around him and began to cry.
Dorrien focused his will quickly, creating a disk of power beneath his feet. He sped down toward Sonea and Akkarin. Feeling dismay at the look of her face, he lost concentration for a moment and felt his magic slip. He dropped a few meters before hastily recreating the disk and lowering himself to the floor.

Leaves flew in a gentle breeze with a quiet hush sound, before falling to the ground. The trees swayed as if to some internal tune, branches flowing gently. Soft tweets and the occasional flutter of wings were the contribution of the birds to the amazing scene. The training grounds were seemingly empty, which was strange because it was midday and the young genin were supposed to be training for the chuunin exams, which were rapidly approaching.
Suddenly, about two kunai flew into a tree trunk and stuck there. This, of course, disturbed the birds who knew what the flying kunai meant and so they flew away quickly while squawking.
A loud thud was heard, followed by a yell of, "Flame style! Fire ball jutsu!" Then there was a great burst of red and orange light from the forest. A young blond boy probably around thirteen years old flung himself from the forest and landed on his feet in the middle of the training ground with a yell.

One morning the Fire Lady was out in the Royal Gardens doing various summersaults while the Fire Lord sat under the shade of a nearby tree and laughed heartily. None of the servants or guards thought any member of the Royal Family could even laugh or smile, unless said smile was an evil one. They looked on curiously at the couple.
They were in utter shock when the Fire Lady suggested they all roll down grassy hills. Pans could be heard colliding with the marble floors when said Fire Lady along with the Fire Lord and Gaang were seen rolling down the 'hills' near the pavilion having the time of their lives.

The first thing they did to Alessar was cut off his hair.
One of the armored guards kicked the Warden's legs out from under him while another pair forced him to his knees. The first guard produced a short, sharp knife, and for a horrified moment, Alistair thought they would slit the elf's throat then and there. Instead, the man grabbed a handful of Alessar's black hair and sawed at it with the knife, which seemed ill-suited to the purpose. That apparently didn't bother the guard, who seemed to relish the disheveled mess he made of the Warden's hair as he continued his task with an unpleasant grin on his face.
Alistair watched helplessly from the confines of a cell, pressing against the bars. "Why are you-- what are you doing?! Maker's Breath, you already have us locked up, leave him alone!"

Obi-Wan Kenobi cringed at that dreaded sound coming from his Padawan's bedroom. After his unpleasant bout with the hiccups back when he was fourteen, he hadn't had them that badly again, although he still had a minor phobia of hiccups. Qui-Gon had teased him mercilessly about it for the remainder of his apprenticeship, as had Garen and Zara.
Who am I kidding?, mused Obi-Wan. Garen and Zara still tease me about hiccups every chance they get!
Of course, Master Yoda snickered evilly (a truly frightening sound, when coming from the old troll) every time some unfortunate Jedi uttered a hiccup near him, oftentimes scaring the hiccups out of said Jedi. Obi-Wan wondered briefly if taking Anakin to visit the old Master would cure him of the hiccups. Although, I don't want to traumatize the poor child any more then I must.

They were laughing so hard they could hardly stand, holding on one another's shoulders for support. The first boy was short and a bit chubby, wiping tears of laughter from his eyes. Next to him was a boy who looked extraordinarily like Harry, but much yo
