Katara had never been one for impulse buying.
On the contrary, she had always been unflinchingly practical in her purchases, much to Sokka, Toph and Aang’s consternation. Ever the homemaker, she was always there to enforce discipline on her companions during their travels because even with the Avatar, sometimes their resources were limited and she always made the best she could with what they had.
So she could not explain why she had bought this particular item. It was of no real use to them although she could imagine the others having some a lot of fun with it. But for some reason, she did not want to share it with them. It would be her own little secret and knowing this gave her a strange thrill. After all, there was no harm in keeping some things to herself. They shared almost everything else with each other anyway.
The waterbender stared intently at the mask in her hands. The artist had only used off-white and cobalt blue but the effect was striking. The
The Break In (ZW14 Day 1: Melancholy)89 days. That is two months, four weeks, and a day since Katara ended it with Jet. She knew she should have ended it much sooner, but she had been so hopeful that he would change. He was a wonderful boyfriend, except for the lying. Which, of course, made the relationship quite unstable and half the time Katara was second guessing herself. It didn’t help that since she had broken up with him he had called and texted her nonstop. He had decreased his attempts to get in touch with her, but this particular Friday night he decided to try again.The Break In (ZW14 Day 1: Melancholy)8 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

with the pebbles and petals drooling from each crevice.
with the pristine brickwork and carefully considered corners;
edge details, the flowers with veins and wrists and nothing
but good times on the mind.
with dust and wood, with curtains and chandeliers.
ghostly chants and haunted closets. with the whispers
of all things golden and not, with the promise of life
expecting to be broken with wind.
with stream, slick, the fish wanting to drown but not knowing how.
with a skitter and scatter coupled with the illusion of nature.
with the lies the water has heard, the oil spills and inability.
with disregard, with unappreciation.
with hush, with bite, with bullet and everything between fingers.
with blood and caffeine, with webs and way too many verbs.
breath and lungs, with hearts like mason jars. with insufficiency.
with all of the above.

Zuko pushes the heavy drapes aside a little and peers out of the window, gazing at the horizon – at how the rising sun, this pale disc obscured by the mist, painting the dark blue night sky soft pink. The door to his chambers is creaked open – he can hear the servants bustling, coming and going out in the hallway, talking, some singing.
His fist clenches around the curtain, the tendons standing out, muscles tense under the skin.
She used to sing, too, her voice echoing in the vast rooms during those days after the Comet, when, for the time being, the palace was hauntingly quiet, when nothing was certain, when he was still bedridden, still healing – then she would sing, stealing a little sliver of life into these old, dark rooms. She would sing old Water Tribe songs, taught by her grandmother, stylish Earth Kingdom tunes she heard in Ba Sing Se, traditional Fire Nation ballads she must have picked up traveling the outer islands, where they were
River and the DoctorIt took a lot of pushing and shoving to load that blue box into the cargo bay: even with the mule and the ATV, Mal couldn't blame his latest customer for circling the crate nervously every time it wobbled on its setting. He himself was in a right high-spirited mood, as the patron in question had paid up front and quite generously.River and the Doctor2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
"Caaareful," the eccentric man protested as his prized possession trembled for the umpteenth time. He held out his hands as if hoping to catch it, but in reality it could probably crush him. The skinny stranger moved as if he hadn't quite grown into his limbs, waltzing about in a tweed jacket, navy trousers and a bright bow-tie. And to hinder his physical talents even further, his unruly brown hair dangled completely in front of his eyes in one fell swoop.
"No need to beat yourself up over a couple scratches, stranger," Mal called to him while he and Jayne worked. He particularly eyed the nicks and scuffs in the bright cobalt paint. "This thing looks like it'

"So what's this I hear about your girlfriend going back to college? I thought she dropped out to be with you?" Tony asked the archer as he came into his room without asking.
"What are you talking about? She's not even my girlfriend. We're just friends." Clint said, not looking up from the book in his hands.
"The fact that you know who I'm talking about says different. Why is (Name) going back?" Tony asked again.
"How should I know? I'm not her, I don't speak for her." Clint said, getting annoyed.
"You pushed her to go didn't you?" Tony paused. "I don't think she really wants to go."
"It's what's best for her." Clint said.
"All of a sudden you know what I'm talking about." Tony said with a hearty laugh.
"Just get out." Clint said pointing to the door. Tony did as he was told and left without another word.

You had always felt comfortable in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s training room but now with the final test to gain field agent status looming the next day, the old training room didn’t seem so welcoming.
“Nervous?” The familiar voice of your overseeing agent, Clint Barton, came from the training room doors.
“A bit.” You admitted. “I mean, what if I fail? What if I do something wrong and someone gets hurt?”
“You’re overthinking it. You’ve made it this far, you’ll ace the test tomorrow.” Clint said.
“You mean that?”
“Course. Besides, I only train the best. Hey, you know what, you need to get your mind off this. How’re your archery skills?”
You wrinkled your nose. You were adept at almost everything S.H.I.E.L.D. threw at you but, not surprisingly, Clint always wiped the floor with you when it came to handling a bow and arrow.

Severus Snape was not, under any circumstances, classifiable as a nervous man. Becoming nervous simply didn’t happen to him. So why he felt so uneasy as he sat at his desk was a total mystery to him. Then his eyes fell on the small package next to his working quill, and he remembered why.
A delicate silver band was hidden away in the small parcel. One he wasn’t entirely sure he was ready to give. At least, emotionally.
Because this ring was meant for you. (Name).
He’d begun to court you when you revealed to him that your suppressed feelings matched his masked ones. Of course you were both fully aware of the dangers of being involved with each other. But as Voldemort’s most trusted “Death Eater”, he knew the Dark Lord would leave you be, at least, until the very end.
And he was determined to protect you with his life.
The quill scratching along the parchment paused in his hand, thoughts becoming filled with gentle smiles and loud laughter. (E/c) eyes

That was why you loved the spring. You absently closed your eyes and twisted with the song, giggling.
You were still laughing when you bumped into someone. Strong arms held your shoulders, preventing you from falling.
"Whoopsie!" You playfuly said, taking off your earphones and rising your gaze from his chest to his face. "My bad."
He smiled gently and let you go. The man was probably ten years older than you, but he was definitely cute with those brownish curls and deep chocolate eyes.

Clint Barton was full of a lot of things, you realized as you sat up in bed. You stretched with a soft yawn, looking around the bedroom. He could be so romantic, at times, when he wasn’t being cold and distant. Not only that, but he could be gentle despite being one of the strongest assassins SHIELD had to offer. He was caring, and honest, and in all honesty- He was hot.
But little did you know he could be full of all that crap, and still have surprises to offer.
You blinked, feeling like everything in your shared room was brighter. Happier, even. You’d say you didn’t know why, but trust me, you definitely did. A grin crossed your lips as you felt your excitement grow.
Today was officially your 25th friggin’ birthday.
You leaned over to Clint, who’d fallen asleep with his back turned to you. You hardly care, though, pressing soft lips to his shoulder, then to his neck, and ear.

You were always there for him, always there to comfort him. You were the one that smiled for him even when you yourself wanted to cry your eyes out. You knew that Bruce had it hard. You knew that everyday he woke up only to want to hide underneath the covers and try to make himself disappear from the world. It was the same for you though you wanted to be there for him. You knew that he was in a hole deeper than yours, one that not even you were sure he was going to dig himself out of. That's why you put on a mask of happiness to pull through for him.
But he had gotten out of it.
