I dont see why he sees them as monsters. How could they be monsters if they create such interesting objects? She asked herself as she examined what looked like an instrument one she had never seen before. She examined another object of what really was a pair of boots mundane to the surface world but to her a fantastic item. Hello whats this? She asked looking on finding another object, it was actually a pistol but to her it was a comb. She put it and other objects she had found into a bag she had with her and the Mermaid swam around looking for anything more of interest.

Supposedly, they were all grown up now.
The Yu Dao crisis had long since been solved by the turning of the port colony into Republic City, established by the Avatar and Fire Lord. The short rift in their friendship had been mended, as though nothing had even happened in the first place.
Katara and Aang were engaged, while Sokka and Suki were newlyweds. Zuko was happily single, applying all of his attention to building a better Fire Nation and healthier ties with both Water Tribes and the Earth Kingdom. After Mai had ended their relationship seemingly so long ago, he hadn't attempted to reconcile it after sorting out the Fire Nation-Earth Kingdom colonization issue, and it had turned out a well-made decision on his end, for his country was now thriving under his reign.
Toph had been established as the Police Chief of Republic City when the city was just newly beginning, and happily accepted the position at first. But now that she had been doing it for five years, it was star

Nobody knew this, but you were Psychic, with the ability to read minds. It made things easier, that's for sure. After turning the report in, you headed back to where Ludwig and a few other officers were talking.
"So what are we talking about?" You asked as you stood beside Ludwig.
"Hey ___, I have a question for you," one your colleagues said to you. You looked at him and smiled.
"What do you think of good old Ludwig here?" he asked as he placed a hand on his shoulder. You immediately felt nervous.

Kill the devil itself.
That's what I'm doing right now, I've been on the hunt for years now,
armed with nothing but god's blessing and my determination to make
the world a better place.
I think I've spotted the devil now. It now takes on a female form,
in a city called Hartview. For reasons unknown, she chose to regularly
appear in this recession-hit yet safe city, no doubt to spread
evil and bring misery to it.
I watched her appear from an apartment complex, and walk down
the streets. I followed her from a safe distance, occasionally
pausing to look into stores and pretending to do some window
It appears that she didn't notice me. Perfect.
She soon hailed a taxi, and as she boarded it, I took out a bicycle
that I have hidden in an alley, and soon I was tailing her from a safe
distance. I have many bicycles stashed around the city, which allows
me to follow my target or make a quick escape should the need

Avoiding ClichesHe shies away from the shadow, squirming deeper into the dull black abyss beneath his bed as Cliché passes, a beautiful mess with golden hair and an enchanting smile. Yet her willowy frame shakes with the fragility of an unfinished copy, who has been seen and heard and lived before. As he stares at her porcelain legs, he wonders if perhaps all Cliché needs is a companion. Not him, but someone else who will not use her, and will instead help her metamorphose into a rare new soul, fully alive with iridescent wings. But no, he is too normal to help Cliché, for average cannot cure average. So he lets her pass, shunning her presence with pity-filled eyes.Avoiding Cliches2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
An idea for General GrievousAn idea I had to make General Grievous a more dangerous opponent is to enable him to imitate the force my means of a series of repulsors and tractor beams built into his mechanical body. I was inspired for this by the droid PROXY from The Force Unleashed who was able to mimic telekinesis by means of repulsors and tractor beams built into his body, which enabled him to accurately replicate Force pushes and pulls and even pull off a lightsaber throw. Grievous already had repulsorlifts built into his legs so as to allow his feet to double as hands, which means that something like this would be plausible. I feel like such an ability would be fitting for Grievous due to his desire to be a jedi and his frustration with his lack of force-sensitivity; this would provide him some additional means of compensation for it along with his cyborg body. I feel that such technology would make Grievous an even deadlier opponent against the jedi than he is right now.

Toph sniffed the warm vapors, taking in the grassy scent. She clutched her tired fingers around the cup, savoring the heat the seeped through her calloused skin.
"Thanks," she breathed out, her eyelids having slid closed.
"You're welcome," Zuko replied, pouring his own cup. He paused, caught off guard by this brief moment of serenity in Toph's face. Her eyes closed, a peacefully neutral expression about her...Her hair was a complete mess, of course, and her outfit was...somewhat lacking in pizazz, but in that short-lived moment, Zuko found himself acknowledging that despite Toph's best efforts, she was growing into a fine young woman. The dirt, the untamed hair, and the foul, snarky looks held that fact back, and in turn, drove aw

Twisted sapphire cotton sheets
Wrap their hauntingly resilient grasp about my neck.
Grasping frantically for dampened oxygen
Cutting off all ties, dividing the rope of life.
My transport, my bed, dragging me further down;
An anchor in the deepest of seas latching onto the flesh of dejection.
Lanky, colorless fingertips barely scrape at the surface above,
No hope to reel me back up to safety, to land, to home.
Down feather pillows roll in, not just a storm at bay,
Soaked feathers fall parallel to the tears of the
The struggle of waves ebb over pale flesh
Until they cease and diminish.
Reach the bay, the hem, the end.
Waves of the azure cloth remain
Draped over the smooth, motionless corpse.
The clouds glide over the reflections of the water
Trailing down the skin.
The slight cerulean tinge that kissed my lips
Leave a small breeze to echo about my numbing figure.
Silence calms the lingering thunder that my heart mirrors.

You watched Germany as he put his stuff up from the meeting. You got up and walked toward the door.

Andie obeyed and gasped at what she saw. The entire sky was filled with stars. Her eyes widened with excitement as she looked back down at Ryan.

Her dorm was located near the dining hall, making her late-night food treks easier and faster. Her roommate Wendy Chang was perfect. She was a biology major, meaning she spent most of her nights at the laboratory on the other side of campus. This meant Andie had the room to herself for a few hours and allowed her to focus on her studies without any distractions. Andie made a lot of friends and hung out with them a few times each week.

World War 2: From Island to IslandWorld War 2: From Island to Island2 years ago in Settings More Like This
The Two Plans
In the the spring of 1943, the US had two options to defeat Japan. The American general Douglas MacArthur favored a primary land based route. His plan was for the Allied troops to capture the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. These islands would be strategic bases to stop supply routes and resources from getting to Japan from Indochina and the Dutch East Indies. Japan would be starved to surrender. This plan also allowed MacArthur to personally end a debt. Early in the war, he had been kicked out by the Japanese on his base in the Philippines. He had promised to return and liberate the country. However, the US navy had their own plan. They favored bypassing the larger islands and instead capture a series of smaller islands in the Pacific Ocean on their way to Japan. This would give a series of small bases to attack Japanese supply routes and the country itself. Their argument was that this plan would be faster and cheaper, but in June 1943 MacArthur'
