I Love You
I know it's wrong
But I cannot help it
The more I think of it
The more I realize that I'm wrong
The more I love you
And that makes me weak
When I fight you
Not your might
But my love for you
I have lost my reason
I have lost my pride
I have lost myself to you
Because I love you
Tears in my eyes
As I weep silently
At the grave of my broken heart
Yes, I have brought it unto myself
But I cannot stop saying
I love you

Most of the structures on Themyscira were ancient Greek style in construction, as their culture was largely ancient Greek in makeup, and built of marble or limestone for the most part. A training center near the middle of the island was one of the largest. Like most structures, it had a walled open courtyard all the way around it, four entrances into the structure itself, and large marble columns that held up the stone roof. The inside of the perimeter wall was adorned with gardens with a track of clean sand right inside of the gardens that measured over three miles around the building, and inside of these were the training fields for this facility, and they were all in heavy use this day. Four obstacle courses, one on each side of the huge, three level structure, were of varying degrees of difficulty for different kinds of training and were named for Greek Gods.
On the south side of the structure, a group of women had just finished

Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were n

It was early Spring two years later when Toph began feeling ill in the mornings. After a week of being unable to hold her breakfast (or lunch for that matter), Zuko had finally forced her to see a healer, convinced that she was sick. Toph had a different suspicion, which was confirmed when the cheerful woman had informed her that she was eight weeks pregnant.
Terrified and joyous, she had run to find Zuko, sending his steward to interrupt his morning meeting. Certain of an emergency, Zuko had rushed to her side immediately. When he learned the happy news he was overjoyed, kissing her and spinning her around until she told him she was going to barf. Then he put her down but he never stopped smiling. Uncle and the gang were informed at once, although the councilmen advised against a pu
Peeta Mellark - The ReapingWhen I wake up I find myself feeling confused. It's later than normal, I can tell because there's too much light in the room. I reach out with one hand to take off the covers of my bed. I'm warm no doubt because father has already started his day in the bakery downstairs and the heat from the kitchen always rises. I'm not surprised he didn't wake us, it being the day of the reaping. Most of us in District Twelve try and have a lie in, especially in the Seam where the miners are usually swarming the place, hunched over, with soot lining every crease in their skin. I have to get up despite my unwillingness.Peeta Mellark - The Reaping2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I know it's shallow to like the fact that she can't see my scar, but it goes beyond appearance. I don't have to feel like her eyes are judging me. That she doesn't base her recognition of me by my face. Toph sees me in a totally different way than most people.
But sometimes I wish she could see. When I catch her eyes, I wish they were a normal green instead of the weird, but pretty ones they are now. I want to connect with her without having to make a sound or touch her. Not that I don't mind. Toph makes up for her blindness with physical contact.
But it's not to know how she's feeling. Her eyes tell no story besides the obvious one. And that makes it difficult to be with her. With Mai, at least I knew where I stood and when I looked at her I could feel her intense glaze staring back. But with Toph I don't have that

It was Christmas and the Gaang had decided that they should celebrate together. They and their families were invited to the Fire Nation's Palace. Zuko said that he wouldn't mind the company. Of course it seemed like he didn't expect everyone to come, but Zuko wasn't going to complain. Well at least not other the others.
Hearing everyone's stories was a plus though. Aang and Katara lived in the Southern Water Tribe for now and were planning on getting married soon. Sokka had moved to Kyoshi Island and was now married to Suki. She and Ty Lee got along well enough.
Toph moved back with her family and was granted more freedom. She said that it was a step, but Zuko could tell that Toph missed her family and was glad to be home.
As for him, he was kept busy most days with his Fire Lord duties. He and Mai were still together, but Zuko felt that Mai was a bit annoyed with him being busy all the time.

PlataeaIn spite of the short supplies and the foreign army waiting in the foothills, Athens woke on the eve of battle feeling breathless and giddy. After re-fastening his sandals two or three times, grinning all the while and trying to catch someone’s eye, he moved on from his camp. Sicyon and Troezan avoided his eyes when he waved, turning quickly back to polishing their greaves. Megara did nothing to reciprocate his wink. Mycenae and Tiryns- were those old codgers still alive?- seemed to suddenly fall deep in conversation. He could have sworn he saw Corinth openly scowl at him out of the corner of his eye as he passed, but decided not to bother with her. The sight of so many city-states in one place made him smile more, and the wider his mouth became the stronger the desire to open it was.

Standing in front of her was the Director.
He was a tall man, standing straight up and holding his head up high. His brown hair was tied back in a horsetail, his bangs framing his handsome face. Green rectangular glasses sat perched on his nose, complimenting his stern, brown eyes. His attire of a black turtleneck, khaki slacks and white lab coat gave him an intelligent if not no-nonsense appearance.

Cerise is working on how to go over the next segment, Looks, and after the previous rant, she's probably resting her voice. I also manage the comments with Red and we got some worries about the relationships or connections with canon characters. Cerise did point out a few good things, but she did forget some other things during the filming."
"For one thing, if you have a character that's paired up with a canon-character, that's fine, but you need to let the relationship start off slow or at least at a pace that would work with the canon-character. If you do it too fast, you lose readers.

And yet I always knew it was to come.
For we are nothing but another side of each other.
For all those years we were two sides of a single coin,
Spinning round and round but never facing one another, never meeting.
But those days have passed. We have joined in more ways than one.
And now we complete each other, black and white, white and black…
Different but the same. We will always continue to fly under the same sky.
Together. Nothing else matters but the connection we share.
This connection which binds us, it runs through our veins, through our blood, long before we ever met.
Eternal. Like the symbols that matched our colours and understood our souls.

Devil turned angel
Hatred of humanity; is it such a distorted angle?
We say we do not need to be ruled
possessing our own set of principals; guided by our own rules
but too many tragedies have ensued, because of these spiteful truths.
Death by destruction; our bodies the trigger
when dazed by drugs, only a violent end is nigh
never the same, no matter how hard we try.
A post-apocalyptic world lie in its wake
In the aftermath of murder you are faced with a choice
Depression or rage, it is all a decision
such a shame that you’ve decided our fate; and now you’ve made this city a prison.
The Insurgence is rising, promising new hope
though quiet as a Bat, it watches with a silent scope
so will you join the resistance, even with such a miniscule power?
Humanness is not the absence of will
It simply the ability to blend in with the crowd, if you’d only be still and listen.

Jane destroyed the reapers, Garrus found her in the rubble and as soon as she was able to stay conscious long enough for them to have a conversation, he proposed. They were married once she was back up on her feet. Soon after, she put in her resignation, but because officers are scarce, they requested that she continue her position as the Normandy's Commander until a replacement could be found. I know, if you read "The Scale," you're probably thinking about the comment Garrus makes about "the woman he knew a year ago" but he wasn't referring to the end of the war. He was referring to the woman he'd married, the woman who'd *lived* to tell about killing the reapers. The woman who looke
