LoK: Four Years Later4Ever since the door closed, there was nothing but silence. Korra stared down her friend, trying to figure out what had changed for him over the years.LoK: Four Years Later43 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She realized that he still wore the same black pants and worn-out white tank top that seemed to have more rips and tears in it than from what she remembered. Korra then noticed that Mako now wore a sleeveless, button-up, Chinese themed top that she remembered seeing in the Fire Nation over his tank top.
While watching Mako, Korra realized, that just like Bolin, his muscles grew too, along with his height. His body was still slim and tall, but his new muscles were still visible. She remembered how her crush on the man came to be when she first met him. Mako still had his cool, yet calm, expression on his face that she thought was so attractive, now she just thinks it's a normal bored expression; there was nothing attractive about it to her now.
While Mako was putting on his new black coat, which reached all the way down to his calves, he

I'll just call you that, if you don't mind. I know it's not your real name, but your real name hard to pronounce for me. Impossible, practically. I'm not particularly proud of that. After all, I am your father and it would be fair to call you by your actual name. But it seems few people around you have a feel for the Mohawk tongue, so like them, I will call you by a simpler name.
It's been three days since you left. Three days since you walked away from me in Valley Forge. You threatened to kill me should I follow or stop you and I have not seen you since.
Frankly, I wonder if I should have gone after you. Should have helped you. I should have simply ignored your threats and followed you anyway. Maybe then, you'd see things my way. Maybe you would finally listen to me. Maybe then, you would see reason and finally trust me.
Still, trusting is a hard thing for you to do, isn't it? After all the idealist nonsense that that senile fool Achilles put in

"Not again!" Korra cried with a groan as she put her hands over her face, "What's the matter?" Bolin asked with raised eyebrows, Korra sighed loudly and dramatically and looked over at him and Mako with a pout, "I have to go to ANOTHER party... it's some traditional thing for All Spirits Day, the only fun part is it's a masquerade so I get to wear a costume but... other than that... blegh..." she said with a wrinkled nose, Bolin blinked, "All Spirits Day huh...?" he wispered, "Yeah, back in the Tribes we would celebrate by painting our faces and the adults would give candy to kids, see, in our beleifs All Spirits Day celebrates two kind of spirits; the spirits of the dead, obviously, but also the spirits of children who are new to this world and either are new souls or have reincarnated from spirits who were previously dead, so the adults leave offerings by the sea for the parted spirits and give candy to the new spirits, the kids," she explained, "Wow, that's really cool!

"Aww, come on. Again?"
Velair screws up her eyes, taking in the chessboard. Sure enough, her king was in check by the black queen. "I should have listened to my dad. I don't think I'll be able to beat you."
The synthetic woman across from her smiles. "Maybe. Maybe not. I have found that it's the unknown that makes the game fun."
Velair puts her hands to her temples, gently rubbing them. "That's easy for you to say Aunt EDI. You've already played through your next hundred moves in your head. I'm stuck barely holding my own."
Noticing Velair's obvious frustration, EDI tries a different tactic. "If it makes you feel better, you are doing far better than your father ever did. She would always take the offensive, and end up getting crushed."
Velair looks up at her, "Heh, that does sound like dad. Be honest though, no one's ever beaten you, have they?"
"You'd be surprised. Your mom is actually the only one to date that has successfully beaten me. So don't lose hope Velair, even I ma

Interim 2"Grounded?" Joker echoed Anderson; his brain struggled to identify the implications of the word. Everything about this meeting was surreal Anderson sat calmly at his desk while, through the large glass window, Jeff could see cleaning crews removing the last of Sovereign's wreckage. The Presidium's greenery was just starting to poke through the ashes of the attack's destruction and the blindingly white walls of the captain's new quarters were gleaming.Interim 23 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Across from him, the older man's face was weary, the premature lines had grown more pronounced in the time since Shepard's Jeff supposed he'd been preoccupied with all of the political fallout from the whole Saren thing and joining the Council, but any pity he might have felt was overwhelmed by a gathering fury.
"Moreau" He started, but Joker cut him off.
"What the hell do you mean, 'grounded'? I'm the best goddamned pilot the Alliance has!" Jeff stood up angrily, ignoring the pain in his shins at the sudden movement.
Property of Ashley Williams"Commander Shepard. Captain of the Normandy. The first human Spectre. Savior of the Citadel."Property of Ashley Williams3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Dwayne Shepard was silent as he saw Ashley Williams walk up past Delan and towards him. He instantly felt a sense of relief wash right through his body at seeing that Ash was all right. Somehow, Dwayne never doubted that she would be safe, but seeing her walking up to Shepard .
That was what he had been hoping for on Horizon.
He smiled in relief as Ashley turned to Delan.
"You're in the presence of a god, Delan. Back from the ."
Ashley Williams turned back to face Dwayne Shepard, and paused upon looking at what was on his armor. She blinked uncertainly, frowning at Dwayne as she shook her head.
"Shepard " she said simply. "What is that that's written into your armor?"
All eyes promptly went to what was scrawled on the Commander's armor. In what looked like silver ink, the words "Property of Ashley Williams" were written on Dwayne's chest piece. The writing barely managed to avoi

Chapter Six - Xephos and the Seven Dwarves
The Queen’s shoes clicked against the cobblestone stairs as she rushed down to her cellar. Usually, she only went down to her cellar for studying up on Black Magic or when she needed to fix issues with others. This was one of those times. Xephos was still out there somewhere, and just the mere thought of him made her blood boil. Once she reached the solid floor that made up her cellar, she rushed past the eerie hallway that led to the dungeon on a lower floor, and stopped abruptly at her bookshelf. Her long slender index finger glided along the old, dusty books until it stopped on one titled Alchemy: Volume I. Her whole hand lunged for the massive book before she even finished reading the title, and she began flipping through it.
Something to kill... something to make me fair- “Ah!” The Queen exclaimed, making a bony crow in the corner flinch and squawk angrily. The

The Fire Nation Palace was under attack.
Zuko ran down the hall, carrying his four-year-old daughter Irah and his two-year-old son Roku in his arms. Roku was still asleep (he would sleep through a volcanic eruption and an earthquake occurring simultaneously, Zuko laughed to himself), but Irahs gold eyes were open and frightened. Zuko kissed her forehead, murmuring small comforts to her.
Soon, he reached the bunker underneath the palace, and laid his son on the bed and his daughter next to him.
Stay here, sweetie, and make sure no one comes in unless its me, okay? He touched her hair in an effort to soothe her, but the fear in her eyes didnt leave. She wrapped her small arms around his neck.
Be careful, Daddy. She laid a clumsy kiss on his cheek, and Zuko fought back tears.
I will. Ill come get you when its all over. I promise. He hugged Irah again, ruffled his sons hair, and left the bunker. He made sure th
Lara and Sam: Something FunThere was always something about reading that Lara found fascinating. The fact that one's mind could, almost magically, block out everything around it and focus entirely on the printed word. It was one mystery even she didn't want solved, mainly because it had helped her extensively over the years. Especially on days like today, when finding the strength of mind to concentrate proved to be a challenge.Lara and Sam: Something Fun2 years ago in Humor More Like This
Although, that was a problem less caused by her own mental capacity, and more by the girl laying on the bed beside her. Despite being politely asked more than once to keep her distance, Sam insisted on staying by her side throughout the night. Ordinarily, she'd have no problem with this, but over time, the girl's various habits began to wear on her patience.
Out of the corner of her eye, Lara would constantly catch the motion of Sam's lips moving. Sometimes, she found it cute when the girl would sing alongside the music flowing through her ear-buds, now was not one of those times. On top
AllTheThingsSheSaid-Gelphie "Miss Galinda, you look ill." Elphaba murmured as she reached over to feel her roommate's forehead.AllTheThingsSheSaid-Gelphie6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"I'm fine!" Galinda snapped, swatting away the approaching green hand. In truth, she did feel odd, but she equated every interaction with the green girl as a drop in her popularity status. "What do you care, anyway? Afraid you won't be the only one with artichoke-colored skin?
"No, you pretentious thing." Elphaba responded, emphasizing the last word as if Galinda wasn't even a person. "I just don't want to have to clean up the innards of your stomach." Not that it would be anything new, she had cleaned up for Papa and Shell enough, and occasionally for Nessarose when Nanny was out running errands. But, she rationalized, I love those people, even if I don't like them. Her annoyingly optimistic roomie, however... Well, they were anathema to each other. No way would Elphaba risk the pain of water for that princess.

wishing, we were hoping.
But the seasons changed
and the month got cold
December hearts weakened
we were left alone.
Our frost-bitten hearts
shriveled up and gone
love; nothing but a thought
a dream that once was.
Does it even exist?
I shudder at the thought
that what we had was real
and what I have just lost.
Summer turns to fall
and things just start to die
the leaves falling off the trees
and broken hearts just asking why.
The love that once was blooming
like a spring flower in a field
now withers away to nothing
not sure of what was real.
The last leaf falls off the tree
there's nothing left to hold on to
and everything that once was
is falling apart around you.
Winter hearts growing colder
and colder as it goes
will love ever happen again?
oh, nobody knows.
Frozen in this state
for what seems like an eternity
knowing what I just lost
as I saw her walk away from me.
Days turn to nights
and darkness falls
and deep inside my heart

She had always known that the Fire Nation was the greatest civilization the world had never known.
She had always known that the Fire Nation was destined to share its greatness with everyone.
And now, because of one person, everything that On Ji had always known was suddenly wrong.
She had gone to the dance party, knowing that she would be in trouble if her parents had found out, and the Headmaster had made sure that they found out. Theyd sent her straight to her room and locked the door. They told her she couldnt come out except for school and chores until she apologized and seen the error of her ways, as they put it.
But On Ji wasnt sorry.
She was glad she went to the party. She was glad to know him. She was glad he said things that made her actually think.

Officer Uzin and his partner Chang took a seat in Chief Lin Bei Fong's office. Both of them had seen better days. Uzin kept scratching the bandages covering a bite mark on his hand while Chang nursed a black eye with a handful of ice wrapped in a rag. It had been a long day and it wasn't even afternoon yet. And they knew it was going to get longer if their boss had any say in it. Behind her desk, Lin Bei Fong had already become stone faced. They knew she had a load of questions aimed directly at them. The kind of questions they had to answer if they wanted to make it to the end of the day and keep their jobs as metalbending police officers.
"Gentlemen." Lin started with a tap on her desk. "Explain to me why it takes seven officers to arrest a single woman?"
Uzin and Chang were quiet. They didn't dare look at each other under Lin's glare.
"You were the first metalbenders on the scene. You better have some explanation for all this."
"Chief... We were assisting a patrol cop at the Flying
