Title: A Hard and Bitter Peace
I placed the phone in its cradle carefully, as though handling a bomb. I stood looking at it for a space of minutes, wondering at the crushing feeling of relief overlaid with pain so great that I could not draw breath, could not, in fact, move a muscle.
He was alive. Lestat was alive, though horribly burned, horribly weakened.
This is what David Talbot told me, speaking in a subdued, respectful voice from his home far away from this seething frenetic city perched on the southern rim of North America. Alive, though he had faced the sun, not once, but twice in a desert on the other side of the world.
I'd known this somehow, after the original shock of understanding what he'd gone off to do while I slept the sleep of the dead. The first shock came d

"Good evening gentlemen, what can I get you?" you greeted with a smile. The one to your right was a blonde beauty, his curls ran all the way down to his shoulders and his icy blue eyes watched you lustfully. A smiled mad it's way onto his lips. The one to your left on the other hand had flowing brown hair, a little longer than that of his companion's, with green eyes that made your knees want to buckle. He also watched you for a moment, but in quite a different way compared to his lewd looking friend. They both had deathly pale skin, making their other features stand a great deal more.
The blonde man finally spoke up after a few moments of silence,"There is nothing you could possibly offer us mademoiselle, nothing besides-"
"Nothing besides a bottle of wine and three glasses, along with your company." The other man said with a gentle smile.

Korra and the HeatKorra really hated the heat.Korra and the Heat4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Growing up in the South Pole, Korra was used to below-freezing temperatures. Did she enjoy freezing her ass off buried under a hundred fur blankets on the coldest days of winter? You'd have to be pretty stupid to think so, in her humble opinion, but she'd take that a thousand times over compared to this this
Ugh! She couldn't even think of a good word to describe it. Her brain has been fried by the blasted sun beating down directly on the vast, dried-out plain they traveled with the dirt path barely distinguishable from the brown grass around her. This weather was leaving her drained of energy, soaked in sweat she didn't even bother bending off herself anymore, and not exactly the nicest person to be around.
Korra had just about had it. There was Mako, acting all superior again just because she was a year younger than him and had never really left the Southern Water Tribe or a training temple in the other two nations before a couple months

Bolin looked where Korra was pointing. "It's Town Hall," he replied. "One of the oldest buildings in the city."He and Mako were out buying food, and Korra had tagged along (actually, she'd been practicing in the art of stealth and had tracked him and Mako all the way from the air temple to the middle of the marketplace, where they now where, and managed to remain inconspicuous the whole time.).
Korra frowned and studied it. "It looks ancient," she said."Why haven't they replaced it yet?" Bolin shrugged. "I'm not sure," he admitted cheerfully."Though I have to agree with you, it does look ready to fall apart."
Just then he heard Mako's voice behind him. "I got the squashed pear plums, the platypus eggs, and the five-fire spices." Bolin turned around."Great! That's everything, then." He` looked up and saw his brother frowning at Korra. "When did you get here?"Bolin rolled his eyes."She tracked us," he informed Mako."All the way from the temple."Mako

Mako froze. You love her. Really? Did he? And how exactly was 'love' different from 'like'? He may appear to be self-confident and all-knowing on the outside, but inside? He was just as confused as any other teenager. He was interrupted from his brooding by a sharp elbow in the ribs, courtesy of Bolin."You done dreaming yet?", his brother questioned."Because you have a certain someone that needs to be apologized to." Mako drew in his breath and turned to face him."I DON'T love Korra. And I'm not apologizing," he stated firmly. To his surprise, Bolin grinned. "Good," his younger brother said cheerfully."Because I call dibs." And just like that, he left, leaving behind a now even more confused Mako.

Another gathering, another fine house. Two such eligible young men never lacked for an invitation. We were making the Pearl River rounds this season.
"Hello there, little bunny." Lestat crooned under his breath, eyes trained on a fair young man, handsomely dressed, his fine calves encased in snowy stockings. "What think you, Louis, eh?" He plucked at the lace that brushed his knuckles. When I made no answer, he turned to look at me, his avid expression completely gone, replaced by a familiar, exasperated sneer. "What is it now?"
I ignored his impatient tone. "Why do you call them that?"
The young man was looking at Lestat with undisguised interest. Lestat smiled at him, careful not to flash his fangs,
"Bunny. Why do you call them that?"
"What possible difference does it make what I call them?" he hissed, pushing me before him so that we were out of said young man's hearing. I waited. "Merde alors! Prey! They're prey Louis. Would you rather I gave them hono
Ode to LestatThe pale luminescence of your skin,Ode to Lestat3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Makes your victim's skin crawl.
They never know of your sin,
All they know is they want to bawl,
As those iridescent fangs glide,
Across their living hide.
No human will ever know,
How your your vampire side goes slow.
The human eye can't see,
The vampire's complexion is key.
The prey will never dare,
To look upon or care.
You lurk in the well-kept room,
Where many meet their doom,
In the home of you,
The vampire Lestat.
LoK: Four Years Later5In the early hours of the morning, the sun slowly rose over the horizon and blanketed Republic City with its light. As the sun's rays began to brighten up Air Temple Island's atmosphere, life began to show on the island as Air Acolytes began to tend to their daily chores and ways of life.LoK: Four Years Later53 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
While everyone else on the island wore with the still rising sun, one person refused to rise.
Korra still lay fast asleep in her bed. As the sun's rays lightly passed over her eyes, she flinched and pulled her thin covers over her head. Without her knowledge, the door to her room quietly slid open. Naga raised her head to see who the intruder was, but then lay back down as her eyes followed the intruder's movements. After a few seconds, a moving hump appeared underneath Korra's bed covers. As the hump moved from the foot of the bed to the top, close to Korra's shoulders, Naga kept her eyes on it.
"Wake up Korra!" Tenzin's youngest son screamed as he sprang from under Korra's sheets.

Lestat and I were seated on the balcony and he was reading aloud to me from the new little internet notebook balanced on his thighs. I was having some trouble paying attention to what he was reading for my attention was more focused on his mouth and the bared column of his neck.
"We've been scrambling all week to confirm the following report, especially since it came from a very reliable source and is insanely logical considering the popularity of vampires these days. I guess something good has come from the success of Twilight as Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Universal Pictures is looking to restart Anne Rice's "The Vampire Chronicles" which tells the tale of the vampire Lestat de Lioncort (through his narration), a nobleman-turned-vampire in the late 18th century.

Asami was numb to the sting of her hair whipping her face. A mighty wind surrounded her, enveloping Air Temple Island in its wrath.
Asami was seeing red, the crimson blood of the Airbending Nomad family pooling around their strewn bodies.
Amon has won. Asami thought, the iron grasp of tears clenching her throat.
She heard Mako scream as the Avatar rose steadily from the ground, a churning, vivid shield of energy encasing her body in its clutches. Her eyes shone a blinding cerulean, tears streaming down her enraged face as the ground tore away beneath her.

"You said 'casually festive', did you not?" I looked down at the sweater, pearl grey with a pair of reindeer rampant across the chest; the reindeer looked disconcertingly ferocious. It was truly execrable but far less so than many others I'd seen when I'd gone out looking for something to wear.
I wasn't aware that 'festive' meant 'terrifying'." Lestat said, frowning at the sweater. "I always thought you would look good in pretty much anything, but this is pushing it, Louis, it really is. Tell me this is a joke."
"It's a designer sweater, Lestat – a Merino wool blend. The saleswoman at Barney's insisted that only Phillip Lim could have designed reindeer as avant-garde"
"Avant-garde? It's dreadful!" he cried.
"Festive." I said firmly.
"It's clearly a woman's sweater." He said, grasping at straws.

The brisk knock at the door told him that it was not Lestat. His maker never had such manners.
Somehow he knew that he was opening the door to new calamity, change wrought in his life by Lestat. He almost turned and fled, but he was Louis and he never shrank from his demons.
The Body Thief or someone stood in that doorway, in the body he had almost crushed beneath his foot. A fledgling. Lestat's. He should have destroyed the body. How handsome the fledgling was, strong and sure of himself, reflecting what Louis knew he could never be.

"Rio was splendid. Why would you just up and leave like that?" Lestat demanded.
Which acidic reply could I possibly give that would penetrate the obtuseness he continued to display? In truth I can't even say why I ever agreed to accompany he and David there in the first place; as it was I could bear David's presence only because I had been grateful that he had helped Lestat when I had refused to, a betraya

Mako peered across the slabs of granite to where his very pregnant wife stood, talking animatedly with his brother. When she placed her hands on her swollen stomach, he tensed, waiting for her to cry out to him that it was finally time. But, like every other time, nothing happened, but he did not relax. She waved at him when she noticed his staring, which he returned half-heartedly.
The Firebender was going crazy waiting for the arrival of their baby Korra was nearly a week and a half overdue, and yet still, their child hadn't even budged.
But it wasn't just the fact that Mako was tired of waiting that was making his nights sleepless and his brain fry no, he was also scared out of his wits, because if he was being honest with himself, he didn't think he was anywhere near ready to be a father.
The more he overanalyzed the situation, the worse he thought he was going to be. He remembered how when, nine months beforehand, Korra had informed him of their impendin

Mako sighed and tried to walk past her. It didn't work, she stepped in front of him to block his way, which resulted in their faces being inches apart, sharing air, feeling each-other's breath on their faces. Their eyes locked and Mako saw a flicker in her eyes that he hadn't seen since the night they found out about Mr. Sato. Man he had missed that look, it sent shivers up his spine and he knew he would drive himself crazy just so she would never lose that look again. He hands moved to her arms and he tentatively moved forwards.
Korra looked deeply into Mako's amber eyes. "Nope, not over him," she thought to herself, "and I never will be." She finally let herself feel the emotions that she had been repressing for days, weeks. She let herself feel the love that made her want him to shove her against the wall and kiss her like he meant it. The love that made her want to protect him from anything the anti-benders might do. She felt his hands slide up her arm

Korra was trying hard not to break down in front of Mako.
They had been imprisoned together in a small, windowless cell made entirely of metal for almost six hours. They had no idea what was going on, where Bolin was, who had imprisoned them, or why. They were both tired, exhausted, hungry, and worried. Very worried.
Mako wasn't speaking at all. He was just pacing endlessly. The Chi Blockers had taken away his bending temporarily, but he was slowly gaining it back. He could also still move his limbs. He'd examined every square inch of their cell, looking for a weak spot, a loose panel, anything. He found none.
Korra was trying to get her bending back as well. Even though she could fight without it, she wanted every single advantage she could possibly have, in case the Chi Blockers returned. She kept repeatedly snapping her fingers and watching as a flame would sizzle to life and then quickly die out. It was hopeless. Whoever led the Chi Blocke

Bolin took Korra out for lunch today; he noticed she had been distracted recently, actually since he caught her kissing Mako. He wanted to clear the air with her, so he took her to his favorite restaurant in the city. She looked up after gulping in a mouthful of noodles. "Do you- do you like him, a lot?" He asked.The Perfect Trick- Makorra3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Korra's cheeks became a slight shade of pink. She averted her eyes, guilty as ever. She felt awkward answering this to him, especially after those exact feelings hurt him in the first place. "Well, Kind of."
"No I mean do you really like him? Like do you want to go out with him or something?" He noticed her awkwardness. "Because I'm totally ok with that, I told you I'll get over you, and I did. I like someone else."
She picked up her head and smiled. She felt her guilt fly away. "Really, you're over me? That's good. And I guess I do. Yes, I really do like Mako. I think I started to like him when I first saw ho

All the drama she experienced in one day just drained all the energy out of her.
She was so tired that, at the moment, she didn't care if she fell asleep on the sidewalk she was walking on right then and there.
As she approached the home of her guardian and his family, she was surprised to still see a car in the driveway. She was used to coming home to no one.
Maybe Tenzin came back early from his business trip. She thought to herself as she stared at the car as she walked up the small, paved way to the front door steps.
Before opening the front door, it swung open and she was met with her guardian's wife.
"Oh, Korra you're here. Good, now I don't have to take Meelo with me." Her guardian's wife said with a slight laugh in her tone. "You mind looking after Meelo for me while I go get Jinora and Ikki from school and get some groceries?"

Korra stormed down the hallway in Tenzin's air temple. And she quite literally stormed. She was so angry that there were flames shooting out of her fists. Rocks and pebbles randomly flew in the air, and any water that she passed rattled in its container and either froze or exploded.
Korra didn't even notice where she was going. All she could think about was that one damn hot firebender. He was so smug and sure of himself-like he knew more than she did!As if! She was the Avatar! She knew more right now than he ever would! So why did he even act like that?!? and what was that whole episode in the courtyard, where he just stood there staring at her?!? Pervert!
Korra paused and leaned up against the wall, breathing steadily. She had to be level-headed. She was the Avatar. It was what was expected. She couldn't go blowing up over petty little squabbles. And, after all, why was she even letting herself get worked up over someone like Mako? He was so ordin

"Why are you even asking? His cruelty has surely not escaped your notice."
This blunt and very direct way of expression was something that Daniel appreciated. No games, no obfuscation---just truth. He found it unexpected in a contemporary of Lestat's; he had assumed that it was some kind of Old World thing, the labyrinthine manner of expression and relating. As a human such musings would not have entered his mind. He had been a vampire for a while now and he was still sometimes bemused at just how off the mark he'd been about so many things.
"Just curious" Daniel said, rolling to his side and looking at Nicolas, sprawled bonelessly across the middle of the bed, bloodied sheet bunched about his hips. "No one tells me anything of any use--it's all meaningless prose meant to dazzle. Not that there is truth in some of it, but
