If Our Love is Tragedy, Why are You My Remedy?"Katara," Zuko grabbed her wrist as she turned away from him; his voice was pleading, "Don't go." Katara dared not look back at him because if she did it would surely be the end of her. He was the enemy after all and she could not afford to be in love with him, she just couldn't. No matter how much it pained her to walk away. She yanked her wrist from his hand and clenched her fists trying to keep her voice from cracking and revealing her true feelings.If Our Love is Tragedy, Why are You My Remedy?2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Goodbye Zuko." With those final words she walked away from him and sealed away her heart so no one could ever hurt her the way he did again. He did not go after her because he knew there was nothing that could be done to change her mind. His head fell and his shoulders slumped as he tried to hold his heart together so it wouldn't break completely. It didn't matter though, because it was already broken from his childhood. She w

Her fingers treaded softly on the water as she watched her reflection ripple beneath the small waves. Today was a very important day for her because today she would finally meet her bodyguard. Her brother refused to let her go to the Fire Nation alone knowing that anything could happen to her. He simply would not allow it.
He argued that there could be rouge soldiers intent on killing her or kidnapping and holding her for ransom. She tried to assure him that she could take care of herself and that she made several trips to the Fire Nation alone with no problems. She didn't know why he was acting up about the trip all of a sudden.

Autumn Twilight----Zutara"Faster driver, faster!" My mistress yelled to the coachman as we sped along the worn rocky road amidst the trees. Where we were going, I did not know. All I knew was that my mistress was in a great hurry and she seemed frightened of something. I wish I could have helped her, but she would not say what she was frightened of and it worried me deeply. I was just hired as the lady's hand maid this very evening and was on my way to her room when she suddenly appeared, as a ghost, and rushed towards the door. The woman who had hired me ushered me to follow my mistress. I did so.Autumn Twilight----Zutara2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She was wearing a blue silk gown, almost as blue as the moon, with a darker blue trim to accent the edges. Her brown hair fell about her face and shoulders in natural waves accenting her tanned skin. Her eyes were as blue the ocean and they seemed to be lost in a time that did not exist anymore.

My apatite's just not there,
If mother knew, she'd be upset greatly,
But i can't find it in my heart to care.
Food just doesn't sound appealing,
It's not like I'm trying to lose weight,
Could it be the stress that I'm feeling?
Or is it what's on the plate?
Even when I am, I'm just too lazy,
And although there's food, there's nothing to eat.
This is making me crazy!
I really want something sweet!
Why my stomach's acting up, I just don't know,
But I wish it would leave me alone,
If it doesn't soon I'll be a Jane Doe,
Because I'm withering away to nothing but skin and bone.

On you wander,
However you're not,
who I once knew
Why can't you turn, to me and smile,
like you used to?
(In those times)
Remember those days,
when we were children?
So long ago..
That sadness in your eyes only grows.
I remember you back then.
All I can do is lock away,
all of my bitter tears.
What could have happened,
what could have changed you, in all those years?
(On that day...)
Stand next to me,
Please don't leave my side, please hear my cry...
"Don't dilly-dally," these words I give you.
And for you I'll be the one who stays besides you.
These feelings, will never change...
That time you promised,
That time you came.
How could I think everything, would be the same?
Under the stars, we made a pledge.
I yearn for those days, however,
those memories I hold dear,
Conflicted with things unclear
Because you're the one I hope remembers...
All of these feelings you can't grasp with your hands.
I want you to notice,
You're no longer standing alone anymore
On your own... on

Although, he reflected, a bead of sweat running down his neck. If Lina were here, I'd never hear the end of it.
The young chimera shook his head as he straightened his collar and gave himself a once-over in the mirror. Casual, but not too casual... Even so, he was having a hard time with these new clothes. The shirt was much lighter than his normal traveling material. And he didn't quite think he'd ever get used to these denim 'jeans'.
Well. At least he looked presentable.
After a moment, Zel sighed and placed a hand on his forehead. What was he doing? Trying to make the best of a bad situation, he supposed, but one should learn to recognize a hopeless case. Besides that, he was only going out- er, on an outing- with Amelia. It w

Father and Mother never expected to be barren after their firstborn. They were dynastic by blood. Half a dozen little geniuses at the least, they envisioned, would follow in their footsteps. "Make masterful music together," so went our motto, "and make proud the Nijikawas the clan of the Prism River".
Instead, they got me: a girl, a runt premature, and so stubborn even before birth that they had to cut Mother open to bring me into the world. The operation was botched. The surgeon tore open her bladder in the process there was no safe way she could conceive again. She and Father were saddled with me as their sole hope for immortality.
Father was a composer, and a virtuoso jazz pianist. Mother was a soprano and aria diva, beautiful as the notes she wove with her silver lips. From my first year onward they bathed me in Bach, tickled me with Tchaikovsky, and lulled me to sleep with their own lullabies. They poured their hearts into me; I never felt so loved.
But they wanted b

Her parents had passed away long ago; even her adoptive home at the temple of the Fire Dragon King was gone, along with those she'd lived alongside for years. So Filia could be nothing but thankful from the bottom of her heart to even have a family now. It was a family that admittedly must've looked strange from the outside. None of them had a drop of blood in common. Heck, they didn't even have race in common. But here they were a blended family.
And it was all because of Val. He was what had drawn them together and he was what they all orbited around now. The tottering child with the unfortunate haircut passing his mornings at the local preschool had no idea what he had brought her; what he had brought them all. Hopefully, someday he would.
There had been many moments in their time together in which that fact had been brought home to her: when she first took Val's egg home; when Jillas, standing on Gravos's shoulders, had hung the shop sign up for t

The Doctor watched the service from a distance. Part of him felt he should be standing there with the others who had came to mourn the man that lay in the coffin to pay his respects, but he can't, he had no right to stand there, not in this form. He had never met him, not in this regeneration and perhaps he never will now, he doubted he could ever see the man and talk to him again, all the while knowing that the man before him is dead and buried.
This could very well be the final time he'll ever say to goodbye Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.
He had only just landed the TARDIS in London for a completely unrelated reason when he realised what the date was, after that he left Amy and Rory behind, telling that he there was something important he had to do and that he would be back to pick them up later. then one quick TARDIS trip later

Stanley was shaking in fear, his eyes unable to leave the body of the rapidly cooling Lieutenant Drash. He sank to his knees as Amelia walked away from him and took up a place at Zelgadis's side.
Lina's eyes widened from her balcony hiding place. "I see," she said. "Zel only drew out the fight so long to buy enough time for the Lafas Seed on Amelia to wear off." She paused and thought for a moment. " That's awfully codependent when you think about it."
Zelgadis dropped his useless, broken sword, and shared a determined look with Amelia before the two turned their gazes back on the sniveling Stanley. The once proud Lord seemed to have been destroyed by the death of his highest ranking officer. Whether it was because Drash was actually dear to him or because he now feared for his life with his protector dead was hard to say. At this point, it was hard to care too.

While waiting for the end, many things go through your mind. Sitting in the decommission dockyard (or junkyard for you humans) allowed me plenty of time to do just that. I wanted to leave Gallifrey and see the universe. I wanted to ride the Time Winds and feel free. It appeared as though that would not happen now. I was told by the other Timeships that I was old, out of date, that my time had passed. How ironic is that? I had watched as the orders were given and was placed in a state of hibernation as a precaution. I knew what was in store for me. The technicians would enter using a master key then input the override protocol to start the shut down sequence. Once the sequence was completed, they would release the clamps on my console and open the main panel allowing the artron energy from my heart to seep out. I wondered when my awareness would cease. Would it happen suddenly after the shut down protocol or slowly as my heart bled out? I was frightened but had no

Filia watched with the proud eyes of a mother as Val ran through the playground with his arms out, playing tag with the other kids and generally having the time of his life. She'd been determined to give him the childhood he'd never had, but she'd been so worried. He'd only started school a few weeks ago and it was as if she'd been holding her breath for something to go wrong. She kept thinking that he might oh say, accidentally transform and burn a hole in the wall or something. You know, the little things moms worry about.
But things seemed to be going well. Val was adapting and making friends, no one was giving him any trouble there, and he had a home and a family now.
Well, sort of.
She broke her gaze away from Val to give a sidelong glance to the person on the bench next to her. This probably looked normal. Sure, they didn't seem too different from any of the other parents watching their kids play. But a dragon and a monster sitting peac

Said we'd see them all someday
But now I nurse a broken heart
Because I never dreamed we'd be apart.
We were always stuck on things unsaid
Just so we'd remain on paths well-tread
Mouths kept shut never did us any good
We never said what we could.
It's far too late now
The walls are shut
And the distance far too great
I'm stuck here
Unsaid words whispered,
Echoing in my ear.
All I want to do
Is return to you
Short of that,
What is there
But waiting for a hope of getting back?
Life will come
And I'll tread through
But only on the hope
Of seeing you.

"What are?" I replied, never able to see what he does.
"The stars, of course," he answered as if almost surprised that I didn't understand. His head was tilted up to face the sky, hands buried in the depths of his pockets. The landscape of the sky reflected in the pale irises of his eyes. That peculiar face of his seemed to radiate pure light and I knew that he belonged amongst the clouds and the silver sparkles of the cosmos. His whole being basked in the glow of it and it revolved around him. We were standing on top of hill in Scotland, and I was rather glad to be home. It was a nice day, a glorious day. There wasn't much so much as the usual gale-force whirlwind but a pleasant, calming breeze that tugged at our clothes and hair. The weather, to my happiness, had stayed obedient and I had my suspicions that somehow he'd managed to turn off the rain and switch on the rays. I'd learned that n

The Doctor is an everlasting song,
Forever stuck on repeat,
Full of infinite modulations,
But the same constant melody,
Sometimes almost disappearing,
Sometimes deafening with its raw power,
But, always, always there,
Far away or close to home,
It can be heard,
In the buildings and the trees,
The wind and the street,
Your best friend's face,
Your mother's hair,
Because he helped make it so,
He defends and protects,
Destroys and conquers,
And his faultless song continues,
Refrain after refrain,
Verse by verse,
Growing longer and longer,
Older and older,
Incalculable, except for time itself,
Still no one knows his name,
No one can sing along,
To the great musical echo of the universe
And sometimes he gets stuck in your head and you can't get him out,
You try to make him go away, but he won't budge,
There's nothing for it, you don't know the words,
Or if they're even English,
But you have to try to sing and dance along,
But he's called

Whispers cover my ears,
Ashes blind my eyes.

Like a faithful soldier,
Like a procession of soulless men.
Lining up for the execution,
Lining up for the end.
It ain't long until you lose that sight.
Lost the fight.
Lost the light.
A star burns somewhere in the second to the right,
But now it's just a star.
A gas waiting to leave,
Waiting to burn,
So a million miles
Away, a planet dies and
