Princess Zelda walked through the gardens of her former home, remembering the times she was with Link as they played together during daylight in their distant childhood. Her steps were slow and soft, as she was taking in the aroma the flowers gave out. She recognized one scent and stopped, taking in the memory of a very special flower that was given to her by a very special friend. Yes, the purple daisy, something that wasn't thought to exist. The blond heir glanced down at the sacred flower and smiled, remembering the significant day the young hero brought her the gift. The gift that she would treasure for the rest of her life, in this garden of sacred memories...
A Study in Pokemon TaxonomyThe science and practice of organizing and classifying Pokémon into a coherent ordering that does not directly contradict the already well-established taxonomy of all other life forms is a daunting task that has troubled Pokémon biologists for some time due to several main factors: the general differences between Pokémon and other life forms at the cellular level; contrary to that, the similarities in body structure of many Pokémon and similar animals; the dilemma of whether to count Pokémon as more closely related by Elemental type or by body structure; and the lack of any sort of clear pattern of common decent amongst Pokémon, contrary to most other categories of life.A Study in Pokemon Taxonomy5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The first and foremost point that must be addressed in Pokémon Biology is their inherent cellular energy signature. This is the reason why Pokémon's cell structure can be easily destabilized and compressed into energy for storing inside a Poké ball. It

She panted in pain as she took another blow. This time, in her stomach. Tears began to leak from her eyes. 'It's hopeless, I can't win.' Sakura thought.
"Heh! Looks like you're finished!" Aikira, the rouge ninja exclaimed as he brought his sword down.
This was Sakura's mission, to assassinate Hoshinano Aikria, a rouge ninja who caused a lot of people pain. "Is-is this the end?" Sakura asked herself.
It was a few seconds and she felt as if nothing happened. She felt a strong arm around her waist and loud sigh. "Sakura, you shouldn't let people capture you this easily!" Sasuke exclaimed.
Yes, Sakura's savior was Sasuke. Sasuke drew his sword and pointed it to Aikiria. "Now, you will pay." Sasuke said.
Without a second thought, Sasuke lunged for the villain and took him out with his chidori. Aikira was strong. Really strong. But Sasuke, however, was stronger...and faster. Sasuke smirked, "Hmp, looks like you can't defeat anyone after all." Sasuke commented.

I blinked dubiously at the manilla envelope being pushed at me across the desk by my boss, Kim Heechul. Refusing to touch it, I glared at him. "You said that I could have a vacation after I finished the last one sir." I said slowly. "So excuse me when I say what the fuck. What the fuck!"
Heechul leaned back in his chair, propping his feet up on the desk. "Change of plan, this is an important assignment."
"So what?" I snapped, leaning forward threateningly. "Give it to someone else, Ryeowook just finished his last assignment why can't he do it?"
He put his feet back down on the floor and laced his fingers together on the desk. I could tell he was getting irritated, but I didn't care. "Ryeowook just got SHOT on his last assignment Cho Kyuhyun, and you are my second best guy. So stop arguing with me and take the envelope."

First KissShe was lying next to me when I woke up; my arm was still wrapped around her bare waist. The warmth from her body was radiating to mine and I leaned forward and inhaled her vanilla perfume that was still lingering on her body. The sun was just beginning to make an appearance and an orange light shone through the crack in the curtains onto her face. It made her even more beautiful, if that was even humanly possible. Her wicked black hair was gnarled and laying this close to her, I could see where she had dyed her once brunette hair. The ruffled sheets exposed her tan skin; her face was soft with fatigue and smeared makeup. Long eyelashes twitched in her sleep and I scooted closer, hoping she wasn't having a nightmare. My eyes canvased the room; clothes, hers and mine, were thrown everywhere. There were cups and plates on her dresser along with an assortment of makeup that she didn't even need.First Kiss2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

When the plague started spreading throughout Republic City, Korra went to help people in the hospitals. She said it was her duty as the Avatar. I should have stopped her; I knew the disease was contagious. I should have kept her from going. We should have left when we found out about the disease. All the things we could have done, but didn't. It started with a few people, and it seemed like nothing, but soon it turned to hundreds, and then thousands. You couldn't walk along the streets without seeing someone deathly ill on the ground. There was nothing the doctors could do. They had to let the person suffer through the illness to death. And then one day, Korra didn't come home. I paced back and forth frantic, and the kids tried to comfort me while not showing their fear. Soon, we got a call from the hospital, and I thought it was Korra, saying she just had some other Avatar duties to attend to, but she would be home soon.

Chapter One: The Warning
My head pounded in synchronization to my heartbeat. I dared to look down. The distance between the bottoms of my feet to the cracked streets below was making me nauseous. I felt the world swaying, as if the building was on unstable rollers. My mind was racing. If I came out of this alive, it wouldn't matter, Wes would kill me anyway. How did I end up in this situation again? Oh yeah. I wanted to be one of them. The moon was high in the sky, and I thanked God that there wasn't a breeze in the air.
I glanced at the waiting crowd of about 8 behind me that I so desperately wanted to belong to. Some of them wore nonchalant expressions on their faces. Others possessed smug looks that only fueled my desire to go through with this even more. Some of them had horns. Most had tails. One of them had more than two arms. Mutant. Their multi-colored skin glistened in the moonlight while my pale complexion dulled me out. I took two deep breaths.

But I just couldn't let him get away with trying to paint me up as being shy or a coward for not daring to change with him in the room... and yes, I know he was just messing with my head.
A sigh escaped my lips as I looked around myself and grimaced as I shoved a spoon with soup into my mouth. In front of me Sora was blabbering about something that didn't make any sense, and around us a lot of other teens were chattering away or fighting. I just wondered what the hell I was doing at this place...
I blinked and looked up at Sora, the spoon dangling from my mouth, Hmmm?

I'm addicted to you.
This fantasy would perhaps
Exist more easily,
And bear less on my aching mind,
Were it you were not so un-faulty.
I cannot stop myself
Casting a glance,
With eyes unrevealing,
Your sought presence in a dream
On a sweet, cool night.
I blame myself.
Wrong and cruel, it seems.
One can put themselves in such vulnerability,
With their heart in my hands,
Cherished so little,
While I long for the embrace
And loveless torment of another.
As long as I may be permitted
To gaze into a face so gorgeous.
Crush my heart,
Of my current prize.
Then, at least,
My heart would not suffer
The anguish caused by you.
Might an apathetic relation
Be preferred over one
Where I might endure such indifference?
Were you capable of caring,
Would you earnestly tolerate my agonizing? -
Would you passively watch my detached interactions,
My counterfeits of love?
Would you succumb to that notion
Wherein I might be perfect for you?
Only I could be so delusional.

I was in love...but I already had someone.
I had never regretted being with someone IN MY LIFE until I laid eyes on that heavenly creature referred to as Zhou Mi. I watched miserably as he moved around the room watering the plants, my chin resting in my hand as I sat with Wookie in a bean-bag chair in the commons area. I sighed and rubbed my eyes tiredly.
Things with Jonghyun were not bad. Not in the slightest. Jonghyun was kind, gentle, and easy to talk to, and he never did anything that made me uncomfortable, or upset me. But lately he was acting differently than before. Ever since we had sex for the first time, it's like he hadn't wanted to touch me anymore. He hadn't given any signs that said he still desired me, and to be honest, it made me feel kind of insecure. But as I stared at Zhou Mi, my heart fluttering as he leaned down to smell a flower in front of the window, I knew that I had to stay. For one thing, I lived in Jonghyun's apartment. If we broke up I would have

Some say that when you lose someone you love, you can feel it. Even if they're miles apart, you'll be able to know.
Thorin felt nothing through the adrenaline of battle. The only thing that he was aware of was the warmth of the Orc and Warg blood mixing together down his arms and against his face. The king saw the eagles come and watched Beorn scatter their enemies away from his mountain.
This was what a victory must have felt like. An actual victory, where he could reap its benefits with his dwarves and kin. He would be able to live out his reign, crown his nephews, and the line of Durin would run strong once more. There would be feasts and songs of their accomplishments that day, he was sure of it.

When will things go right?

Sometimes, I whisper to you at night,
as I'm nodding off,

When I wake,
the first word to escape my mouth is your name.
Come back to me.

Invisible but all too real barriers
stand between my shallow frozen figure
and your enlightening oh-so-familiar warmth.
When did we become strangers?
The tasty tingling of our meeting smiles
has blown away to dust,
forever leaving my insatiable lips unkissed.
The once accustomed embraces that we'd share,
with your arms wrapped firmly to me,
holding me together
You took them with you.
