Leo and Khione Proposal 6InceptionLeo and Khione Proposal 64 years ago in Romance More Like This
Leo was sitting with Khione, just out side of her palace. The two had a Romeo and Juliet thing going, without all the death. Fire and ice had fallen in love with each other and they weren't letting anything stop them, even if it meant sneaking all around Canada (and Leo not being properly warm for the rest of his life).
Leo wanted to marry her, but as a mortal he wasn't sure if he could, and being a son of Hephaestus didn't help his cause.
"Khione, let's get married," Leo blurted to her. She stared at him like he was crazy, but her expression shifted to one of pure happiness. Then to concern, "Leo I don't know if we can," She told him.
"We could do it in secret, like Romeo and Juliet or Pyramus and Thisbe,"
"All of them died! And besides, the gods see all. There is no way we could do this,"
"We could try,"
With that, Khione kissed Leo, "Of course I'll marry you Leo," they kept kissing.
Khione started to moan Leo's name over and over, but her voice started to get more m
Carpe DiamThe first thing he wanted to do when he got back from saving the world was to take her to this small beach on Long Island. It was just outside the protection of camp, but just inside the range of the mist. It was only about half a mile wide, but it was hidden and unpopulated. There was no garbage, no people, no anything. For that night it was just the two of them.Carpe Diam3 years ago in Romance More Like This
There were a lot of similarities between Jason and Reyna, Leo noticed as he made a fire for the two of them once the sun had set. The way they carried themselves, the way they sat, the way they talked. It was all very different for the Greeks. It seemed kind of wondrous that Leo had gotten her to go out with him at all. He was a goofball and she was a Roman. (But who's to say Romans can't have a sense of humor?)
He sat down next to her on the towel, she pulled her hoodie closer to her body and moved, just slightly, closer to Leo.
"I'm glad you're back." She told him. he reached around her back and pulled her hair from it's br
Into the DarkAnnabeth, MOVE!"Into the Dark3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Percy was shouting at her again. Annabeth realized suddenly. She saw his mouth move over and over, forming the same words, yet it hadn't registered until now. She shook her head a tiny bit. Didn't he understand she couldn't move? This was her test, her punishment. She could only put it off for so long, and now it had come for her.
The bars on the gate slowly lowered, separating them. Percy's eyes widened, a shout forming on his lips. He was only a second too late, they collided with the ground with a clank before he could stop them. He threw himself upon the bars, shaking them while calling her name. But she did not come.
He uncapped Riptide and furiously smashed it across the rods, trying to open them by force. Annabeth shook her head again, knowing it wouldn't open. It was obviously sealed with magic, but Percy did not stop.
And then something happened that Annabeth did not expect. Percy began to cry. His hands were bloody from bashing them across the bar
The Charm of Leo ValdezThe Charm of Leo ValdezThe Charm of Leo Valdez4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Leo always found himself attracted to the same type of girl: hot, strong, and completely out of his league. He knew it. His friends knew it. Even the people who didn't know him all that well knew that he tended to crush on girls that were way above him. It was just one of those things people knew about him. So, of course, no one was surprised that, when they reached Camp Jupiter, Leo set his eyes on the camp's praetor, Reyna. She fit his type exactly; a strong, beautiful young woman with a position of power that made her completely out of reach to the mechanic son of Hephaestus.
What did come to surprise so many of the group from Camp Half-Blood was when Reyna, for all her rather solitary, serious nature, seemed to show an interest in the Greek demigod. It particularly caught Jason off-guard, knowing Reyna from the memories that were returning to him. From what he remembered of the daughter of Bellona, Leo was as far from her own t

"Percy," Reyna's voice was steady and demanding, "You know these people more than I do, so you can assure me that they will not be a threat to this camp.
Percy took a deep breath. "No." He turned towards Reyna. When their eyes met, Reyna's breath hitched as she tensed. "No, they will not be. And if they are, I will defend this camp with my life."
Percy walked forward; Reyna's eyes followed him. She felt something flutter within her. "We have to stay strong and focused now. The camp is counting on the both of us."
Percy stopped in his tracks and faced his colleague.
"Both of us.", he muttered, "Us."
"What?" Reyna felt herself blush when she heard him.
"Nothing. I was just-uh-are you saying I'm not strong and focused?"
"No! I just meant that we should be-you know. I just thought it because your friends and the truth a

"Oh, another productive call from the ever-charming Jane, I see." Leo said with a smile as he hung up the phone. He leaned up against the wall and looked at Piper who sighed and tucked some hair behind her ear.
"I just want to talk to my dad." She said, taking a deep breath. "He's apparently going to dinner at 4 o clock nowadays."
"He's a busy guy."
"On a Sunday."
"Being an actor is a commitment."
"Even though he had a 3 hour lunch an hour ago."
"I hear soups are making a comeback in mainstream dining." There was a pause between the two of them before Piper let out a tired laugh and stepped toward Leo, sliding her arms around his middle. She took in everything about him as he hugged her back. His slender

"Why don't you ever smile? You are way too serious, lady!"
"Well, I am a praetor, and it is not in my job description to smile,"
"Really? Somebody's gotta tell Percy that, then. He's a flippin' derp machine."
"So are you."
"Yeah, but my derp is way cooler."
"Whatever you say, Valdez."
"I derp like a boss, Reyna. LIKE A BOSS."
"Yes. Besides, Percy is a graecus. So the 'derp' comes easy for him. And you."
"Not especially, no."
"All right, then. Now smile."
"You know you want to."
"Valdez, get your hands off my face."
"Okay, that's it. I swear, Reyna, that if you don't smile in the next ten seconds, I'm gonna pull the 'Smile!' number on you."

"Will you STOP IT!" Clarisse yelled standing up and pointing her spear towards him.
"Whoa! Whoa!" Leo cried jumping between them. "Stop! This was exactly what Annabeth was talking about, we all need to learn to get on, or she's not gonna let you out!"
"What're you doing here again?" Connor asked.
"I'm the peacekeeper." Leo said, proudly puffing his chest out.
"Good for you but I still don't get what I'M doing here." Nico huffed, playing with the skull ring on his finger. "There are so many different places I could be right now!"
"Well maybe your here to learn not to lie!" Percy cried, turning away from his younger cousin with his arms crossed.

"Joseph, how many times have I told you to not play with the candles?" Reyna sighed, pinching the bridge of her nose.
Before, she thought leading the legion was stressful.
Then she married Leo Valdez and had children.
The only sane one in her family was Liz - Reyna lost her own sanity years before, when she started dating the curly haired Latino.
"But Daddy does it!" Her youngest son whined.
"And I tell Daddy not to!" Reyna snapped, "Now stop playing with the candle!" Joseph made a frustrated noise through his nose, but he stopped. It wouldn't do to have his mother upset with him. Bad things happened when Mommy was upset with him.
"Thank you," Reyna breathed as her son ran off to find something else to do - probably tease his sister, which would lead Liz to lose her head and smack Joseph, which would make Joseph to fight back. Eventually, Hector would find them - with Liz winning, most likely - and jump to his brother's defense. Then, when Liz was about
Somewhere Only We KnowAfter being away from home for so long, what you remember becomes what is really there and what is there becomes a foreign plaint. That was my biggest fear as the Argo landed on the shores of Camp Half Blood. That what I thought Camp was wouldn't be there any more and that these ideas in my head of what camp was would all be some lie.Somewhere Only We Know3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The Atlantic breeze felt normal, unlike the Pacific Ocean, which was foreign. The air of camp smelt the same as I had hoped it would: impossibly clean for a place so close to New York.
From the docks of the Argo II was able to see the strawberry fields, the forest, the lake, and the cabins. Camp hadn't changed; it was the place I had hoped it would be.
It really felt like home. For the first time in months of imaging what camp would be like and spending months adjusting to Roman life, I was back where I belonged. Camp Half Blood was simple; there were no temples or forums or shops, just some strawberries and a beach. But even after being in the

What is that? Is… is that an ocean??
You hastily opened the door to your left, bumping into a small table as you did so. You almost tripped over, but held yourself up using the doorknob, while glaring at the offending furniture and rubbing your injured hip.

'Mom! I'm home!' I called out. Needless to say, she was nowhere to be found. 'Mom...?' I stared into open air, and then it struck me: she was supposed to be at work. I looked at the Wobbuffet vacuuming the floor with its stubby blue hands. 'Wooba Woobuffet!' It raised its stubby little arms in a salute. It would've been cute if it was a Wynaut.
Before the Pokémon could protest, I had already been out of the door. 'I'll be in Sweet in Pallet!' The candy shop where my mom worked. I had a sweet tooth, preferably for blue food. My mom was an excellent baker. She used to bake me some blue chocolate chip cookies, with the chips still melting. Just thinking about it made me drool.
I made my way past the park, where Katie's mom, Demeter, stopped to say hi to me, but I was out in a flash. Katie's little sister Miranda shrieked, and I turned back to see what happened. It turned out that a Spinarak had crawled its way on her leg. Like K

Tavros's expression was still blank, and would forever be that way.

#76) What are your thoughts about the little mini issue within the fandom regarding Lil Miss Jay - the artist who works on the grimdark version of Rarity? Sure, he might draw something people don't like. But on the other end of the argument he's received death threats from both haters and bronies (I mean yeah it's the internet but some arrests were actually made). Any specific thoughts?
Answer: This one was quite difficult to answer, as I tend to avoid Tumblr, and thus had to perform some genuine research before answering. Being friends with a variety of Tumblr-fluent people, I receive information every now and then, and I have heard about the person in question, although what I've been told has been mostly negative. That said, I've never personally been involved in a situation with this user, and I can't even say that I've seen much of their work, and so I'm afraid that the next few points will be based on what I've heard from other people.

Mi Amore Cadenza
Princess of love
Grace, a poetic stanza
Captain of the Royal Guard
Equestria's shield of power
Selflessness, his card
Brother to the Element of Magic
Her refuge, her sanctuary
An end nearly tragic
Averted by steadfast quarry
Blinded by affection
An imposter, masquerading in plain sight
Her diabolical schemes, an abomination
Goal, Equestrian blight
Memories irreconcilable with the present
All parties directing resentment
In caverns of yore
The true musical melody
Released from crystal core
To stop the one so shadowy
Identity, a fake
True form revealed
Queen of Changelings' sake
Canterlot forcefully controlled
Princess of the sun
Bond of one
Love's true power attested
Just as in times old
The power of friendship untold
Uplifted higher, brighter, a sight to behold
The might of love so bold

Twilight Sparkle ran through the stone hallways under the Marjave Citadel. Levitating in front of her, in her magical grip, was a large obsidian stone in the shape of a cylinder. It was jet black and almost featureless, save for the gold accents at either end, each featuring a single amethyst gemstone set within.
The unicorn emerged in a small room, dominated by a spiral staircase spinning upward. She quickly ran up the stairs. At her rapid pace, she arrived at the top in no time at all, and leaped through the broken frame of the formerly hidden doorway.
The shining blue hallways glowed as Twilight galloped through. She passed paintings, doors and delicate vases, and she knew the hordes had not gotten this far. They still had time.
Reaching a pair of double doors at the end of a hallway, she burst through, arriving in the main atrium.
Sitting at the centre of the room, seven stone pedestals were arranged in a circular formation. Three of the pe
