The color looked so foreign on her. But, it was the only thing she had that fitted at the time and where she was going.
“Hey Korra, if you want to make it to the ferry on time, we need to go.” He said as he walked in their bedroom while buttoning up his jacket. He looked up and saw his expecting wife looking at herself in the mirror. “Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in Air Acolyte clothing.” He walked up behind and rested his head on her shoulder as he laid his hands on her growing belly.
“Oh shut up, you’ve seen me in them before when I trained. Besides, Pema gave it to me when she saw that my other maternity dress looked small to her. She was right; this is fitting and comfortable at the same time.” She smiled at her own joke.
“Well you look nice.” He then quickly kissed her cheek and began to walk back to the door. “Now come on, will you? You told Tenzin we would be at

"Is that the best you can hunt?" Hollykit scoffed. "You're more lopsided then a three-legged badger!"
Birchkit sat up, abandoning his attempt at a successful hunter's crouch. "What do you mean?" he demanded in mock offence, "That was my best squirrel stalking technique!" His whiskers twitched forward giving away his amusement.
Hollykit snorted. "Some squirrel you'd catch. I'm not sure the clan would appreciate deaf and blind fresh-kill too often."
Birchkit crouched down, tail tip twitching. "I'll show you deaf and blind," he growled and leapt at his sibling, claws sheathed. Before he could land a blow though, Hollykit dodged, dropping to the ground and rolling instantly to the left leaving Birchkit to land clumsily on all fours in a cloud of dust. "Hey!" he whipped around to glare at his sister only to find her rolling on her back in amusement at his failed attack. She stopped wriggling after a moment to tip her head back, looking at Birchkit upside-down.

Pairing: Sasuke Uchiha (canon) and Ashton Uchiha (oc)
Warning: some language and semi-leamon
"I'm just tired of all this shit," Ashton screamed as she held herself in anger.
"What are you talking about? You're the one who's losing it," Sasuke argued back.
The two were standing at the front of their home. Sasuke just returned from a mission and after Ashton finished healing his wounds she told him how she felt. Every time Sasuke had returned from a mission he was always covered in bandages.
"I'm not losing it, you are! It's been the same thing every time you come home. Always bloody because on those dumb ass missions you go on you through yourself into the middle of the fight and get the shit beat out of you. I'm tired of this Sasuke. You're twenty-seven and a father, you need to be more cautious. I don't want the day to come where I have to tell our kids that you died because you wanted to be a stupid hero," Ashton screamed as her eyes started to fill with tears.

Eyes like two huge harvest moons,
Glowing with curiosity,
Dilated to the soft tunes.
Or maybe not,
Perhaps they're heavy and harsh,
The songs that fill you,
Flood you like a marsh.
I see you glancing,
Eyes like two lively lovers,
Dancing to your music,
Eyes like your little brother's.
Or maybe not,
Yours are lost and ghosted,
Kept alive by the music,
That keeps your heart roasted.
I see you longing,
Eyes beseeching to belong,
Like two puzzled toddlers,
Trying to appear strong.
Or maybe not,
Maybe you actually are,
You must be,
To keep yourself this afar.
I see you trying,
Eyes aching with need to hide,
Like two setting suns,
Yet never full of pride.
Or maybe not,
Perhaps you are proud,
You should be,
For standing out in a crowd.
You see me gazing,
Eyes enchanted by your unique beauty,
Like two stunned rabbits,
But you just blush cutely.
Or maybe not,
Maybe you feel it too,
I don't want to be unrequited,
Unrequited in my love for you.
You see me smiling,

The hope to dream againThe hope to dream again3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
This is when night falls that dreams awake. Traditionally the night is considered as a different world, where people are metamorphosed, where imagination has its place. I dream of fresh nights with a tender pink sky, I dream of elves living in the breath of life flourishing, singing their love for the beautiful night. With sweet dreams the night runs in the small forested village, where every glimmer of life is an endless spectacle.
And when the day breaks, the spirits of these creatures of the night get in rest. I wake up, I'm Kitty. I also dream to lie down at the top of a tree to get lost in the stars. My bubble, that few people can imagine, that might be difficult to assess. My Dreamscape that I share with a Swallow. Who knows how to fly, but who has fallen. If she falls once again, I'll be there with my clumsy paws.
I want to be a Kitten of those festival nights.

A different worldIt was a normal day, except that it was my eleventh birthday, and thus the day I was supposed to pick a god and goddess. This decision would decide the rest of my life, was I going to be taught to be a doctor, an artist, a vet, or maybe a soldier? If you chose a deity of war you where taught to fight and to plan battles, if you chose one of wisdom you where taught to be a teacher, and so on. This also meant that the deities paid special attention to you on your eleventh birthday trying to either push you away or pull you closer depending on whether you might be useful to them or not. So it came as no surprise when I saw a grinning Jackal sitting by my locker, or when a tall Greek looking woman was standing beside him. The thing that made me sigh heavily was the realization that today I had to decide if I would follow my parents and become a member of the support staff who held no personal gods and attended a separate school from the other kids or go off to the region school for the souA different world3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

With the sad, sad eyes.
To the boy I met
Who wasn't allowed to cry.
To the man I saw
Who was falsely accused.
To the woman I met
Who was badly abused.
This is my ode to you
For you live on despite it.
I'm so proud of you
For you can still fight it.
The world is against you,
But it's not your fault.
It's just the way
This world was taught.
So live on, live on,
Don't you give up here.
It gets better later,

I believe in you,
I know you can make it.
I'll reach out my hand,
If you need it, just take it.
You're not invisible,
And you'll be fine.

Sometimes the pain is better than the protection.
Sometimes the tears sting more than the smile,
Sometimes the yard tires more than the mile.

QuotesHave you ever felt that feeling whenever you see someone, you freeze and your heart starts to beat so fast and you have to hold on to something so you wouldnt fall? Sometimes when they talk to you, do you utter stupid words and end up embarrassing yourself? Its not that you want it, but just the presence of that person makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time. Would you be brave and admit your feelings? What if its simply not meant to be, do you give up? Or keep trying and end up with nothing? Well, thats love. Its irony speaks, but you got to take risks to get answers. When you meet someone and you gradually fall in love with that person, try to express your love to her because every moment you wasted would be equal to tons of regret in the end. Dont wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they are gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry they wont hear you anymore.Quotes8 years ago in Teen More Like This

(Name) rubbed her eyes to keep her from falling asleep again. She had a lot of paperwork that she had to finish before tomorrow and she hadn't even finished half of it. Her boss would be so mad at her if he had ever found out. She usually was prompt with it. The reason for her sudden procrastination was a little nation that was also known as Canada. Now, don't get me wrong, for he was a very sweet and adorable little country and causing (Name)'s boss to get mad at her would be the last thing he would ever want. You see, (Name) had saved Canada from a certain English nation that wanted control over him. He already had America, but his hunger for power made him want Canada too. Fortunately, (Name) had come in the right time and had saved little Canada from being taken over by him. After all, it was all she could do to repay France, her ally, from helping her economy when it hit an all-time low. He had been nice (sometimes, a little too nice) and had given her some money.

Slipping through the cracks.
Where you're going,
Always have to ask.
You never lie,
You touch the sky,
You're never coming down.
Touch the wall,
Leave them all,
Go and wear your crown.
It's all a game,
They're all to blame,
It's never going to end.
So stand up tall,
Stand against the wall,
Prove that you won't bend.
It matters not,
If one is hot,
Only if one is kind.
You can fight,
For what is right,
You're not alone, you'll find.
You can win,
Against this sin,
And you can prove your worth.
Just stand up tall,
Back against the wall,
And throw them to the hearth!

Sick isn't something
You can see.
When I'm standing there -
Fists bracing -
For 'no reason at all',
I hope it makes you
Feel big and tall,
To tell me I'm being stupid.
When I can't talk to someone -
Because my throat is dry,
And I feel sick,
Like I can't
Catch my breath,
Like I'm going to cry
Like I'm hurtling
Towards death -
Don't tell me to
'Get over myself'.
When I'm crying -
And my knees
And I'm too scared
And every heart
Makes me jump -
How can you tell me
I need to 'grow up'?
When I can't get on a bus -
Because so many people,
So many eyes,
And my mind is force-feeding
Me so many lies -
Don't tell me I 'think I'm better
Than everyone else'.
I'm trying my hardest.
Really, I am.
Would you tell someone with a broken leg
To just get up and walk?
Would you tell someone with no tongue
To open their mouth and talk?
Would you tell a wingless angel
So tell me why -

In The Darkness (I See The Light)In a tunnel, I was dropped down.In The Darkness (I See The Light)11 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A dead end, it was. Darkness drowned.
I couldn't see the path- no way out.
I felt stuck in my life without a route.
I had chains bound to my every limb,
holding me down, feeling dead within.
With nowhere to run, nowhere to flee,
it seemed I was beaten by the enemy.
Left in scraps, my hope was all gone.
I accepted my fate; I became the pawn.
That was until, through strained eyes,
I saw you at the end. I saw the light.
The surrounding evil perished at the sight
of the one to guide me- to end the fight.
You took my hand and, through that night,
you cared for me. You did what was right.
With the demons gone and my soul set free,
you continue on with your arms open for me..
You illuminate the path, clutching my wrist,
and we journey through. We can do this.
On the fourteenth, our bond had formed-
Our eternal connection that I so adore.
Now you show me this connection, this love,
and help me through the times that get tough.
We're still not done; the tunnel n
