Chapter 3: The Night Thieves
Katara reluctantly woke up. She felt so comfortable! This bed was softer than the bed in her room. She stretched. Her legs didn't go behind the bed, like they usually did.
She slowly opened her eyes. First, she saw Zuko. He was taking some clothes from his wardrobe, perhaps to cover his naked torso
-You finally woke up! I slept late because of you. Longer than usual. The servants are probably worried
Katara violently sat up in the bed. She couldn't say anything.
-What I Where am I?! And why here?!
She couldn't ask: 'What am I doing in your bed?'.
Zuko sat on the edge of the bed.
-Yesterday, we worked very late. You fell asleep when you were signing letters. I took you here.
Katara rubbed her forehead. She fell asleep? She remembered that she was sitting at the table, transferring drops of ink and copying the Fire Lord's signature. It was so monotonous. So soporific.
-And - she started, but

"Benders aren't any better than us normal folk," the man said, spitting derisively at Korra's feet. She clenched her hands into fists.
"I know that," she said through locked teeth. She took a deep breath, then tried to settle her first ever Avatar dispute. "Benders and non-benders are a source of balance for the world. The spirituality um it does stuff. I suppose."
The crowd laughed in her face, and Tenzin sighed heavily.
"Okay, I could have done better," she snapped at him. "Look, I'm trying my best, alright?"
"Come back when you got a handle on that, honey," the man said, and they all laughed.
Korra turned on him and fell into her favorite waterbending stance. The crowd took a collective step back, and Korra gave the daring man a hard smile.
"Come on, if you're so tough," she sneered.
"Korra," Tenzin snapped. "Stop this."
"Trying," she replied, not taking her eyes off her new opponent. He hesitated, then shrugged.

Zuko's Hair: the SymbolismIt is a widespread and somewhat controversial theory that Zuko's changing hairstyles throughout the three seasons of Avatar: the Last Airbender are symbolic of the internal changes which he experiences over the course of that time. I personally support this theory.Zuko's Hair: the Symbolism5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Let's begin with the basics. I am going to explain the theory at its core in the simplest of terms, and then explain the thought process which led me to this theory.
When you see Season One Zuko, with his ponytail, what do you think? I'm willing to bet that you think "bad". You may deepen this label by throwing in such choice terms as "angry", "bitter", "hurting", "confused", "searching for answers", and the like, but on the surface, it's just "bad". Now let's skip ahead 63 episodes. We are now in season three, and Zuko has shaggy hair. When you see this Zuko, what do you think? You think "good". You may also think "changed", "redeemed", "honorable", "noble", or "forgiven", but basically what you think is "good".

PruCan - Verboten ch3Spring blossomed gently into summer, the late June weather fine and hot, and the villagers and Germans of Bussy found themselves strangely at ease. They were too far removed from the rest of France, from the rest of the world on these lovely summer evenings. Gentle stirrings of warm breezes mingled with the humming of insects, sweetly drifting over young couples as they visited in secret. The Germans and the French were by no means reconciled, and being found out by the rest of the village would create scandal and uproar, but who could resist the sweet intoxication of young love when it called?

"Hey sis, where ya going? Home's the other way, duh!"
Maddie found herself coming to a gradual halt as she turned her attention to her approaching sister. Once Abby had caught up with her, she began to walk again, proceeding at a more leisurely pace. "I know," she answered quietly, "but I just wanted to head over to Gilbert's house and tell him about... dinner."
Never had that single word been spoken with more dread (not even on the rare and much fretful nights when their father had gotten in one of his "helpful" moods and decided to commandeer the kitchen). It had only been a day since the incident (or "Thong Gate" as Abby called it) where Dad had stumbled upon the panties she had secretly purchased from Victoria's Secret and Maddie was still filled with a painful concoction of emotions: worry, embarrassment, and fear.

PruCan - Verboten ch2The bells tolled twelve in the town square and in the bell tower of the church. It was noon on Easter Sunday in Germany, and the great clock set into the wall of Bussy's town hall as well as the one adorning the church reflected that time. However, in the Williams-Bonnefoy household the great grandfather clock in the atrium, with its dark bass tone echoing through the bare hall, was one chime short. Here, as in all the French households, it was only eleven AM, no matter what time the occupying soldiers insisted they were living on.PruCan - Verboten ch23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Matthew counted the hollow chimes, sure that he could feel each one of them reverberating within his heart in the same way they did the heavy mahogany body of the clock. Morning mass had been over for an hour, as the church had no choice but to operate on the time indicated by the Germans, but Marthe would not be serving Easter lunch until noon, punctual to a fault.

He felt like he was falling very fast, as if the ground under him had dropped away completely. Nothing felt real; it was as if his mind was rejecting all he was seeing and hearing at once. The world swam before his eyes and his stomach turned. Slowly, his brain pieced together an answer from the swirling chaos. *Maka doesn't want to be my meister anymore?!* It echoed over and over but didn't seem to sink in. He stared at Maka, waiting for her to take it all back, for her to tell him it was all just a terrible joke.
She continued to sit in silence with eyes firmly fixed upon the floor. The thought that this might not be a joke began to sink in making Soul feel sick. After an eternity of silence, Soul forced himself to speak.
"Wh What are you saying?" He stuttered, not bothering to hide the shock he was feeling

How Avatar: the Last Airbender impacted me.As a Christian, I was raised to believe that God can speak to us through anything. I never really doubted that, but I guess I always assumed that anything bearing a message from God would go somewhere along the lines of a burning bush or a pillar of smoke; something powerful, enigmatic, and unexplainable any other way.How Avatar: the Last Airbender impacted me.3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
What I've learned in the past two year is that, a lot of times, the things that have the biggest impact in our lives come in the most unassuming forms. They're the mundane parts of your average routine, the things you experience in everyday life to which you never pay any mind. Little things like the grumpy old sales clerk, the adopted family member, or in my case, the television series you thought you would never watch.
It was in the summer of 2010 that a good friend of mine told me I should watch a show called Avatar: the Last Airbender. I had heard of the series many times, but had always dismissed it without a though. It being an anime-esque Nickelodeon progra

Maddie couldn't sleep and that was a problem. She had fallen asleep a few minutes after her little talk with her father, but less than an hour later something inside her had stirred, prying her out of her peaceful sleep. Now she could do nothing except lay between her tangled sheets, twisting and turning as worry churned inside of her, tying her stomach into tight knots.
A small groan escaped her lips as she turned to face the alarm clock resting on her bedside table. The bright red numbers on the clock's face pierced through the darkened room to tell her that it was already four in the morning and the family would be waking up in a few hours to head off to Sunday morning Mass. (Well, the whole family except for Dad, who hadn't set foot inside a Catholic church since their baptism.)

Maddie had to admit that she was a bit startled that she had been able to function at all that day given the night she had. Listening in on her parents' conversation had only served to shake her up even more and as a result she found herself tossing and turning for most of the night and into the early hours of the morning, wondering and dreading exactly what it was that Maman had planned. Yet when the afternoon came and all had continued to be quiet, Maddie had thought for certain that her concerns were unfounded.
That was until Maman began to insist that Dad go to the store and pick up a few things for tomorrow night.
"You don't need all of this do you?"
Maddie lifted her head, pulling her attention away from the task of clearing the kitchen table of their afternoon meal just long enough to take in the frown forming on her father's brow as his eyes scanned the impressive grocery list that Maman had handed him.

I could still feel Soul’s delicious warmth as we rode away to our apartment in comfortable silence. I went up to get my duffel bag and safely tucked it behind me before heading towards the airport.
Soul parked his bike to the nearest elevator and took my hand in his. We rode the elevator in silence, our hands locked in a frozen state. I stared at our reflection from the sliding doors with great interest. We looked like the ideal pairing of a man and woman rather than a weapon and meister. I’ve never considered Soul as just a weapon nor just that friend. He means a lot to me, but the reason for that entitlement still remains unknown to me, he was just important.
The elevator rang, announcing our arrival in a droning manner before opening the doors into the cool night. We walked out, hands still intact, towards the pedestrian cross walks. I was surprised to see the congested street on this night. It was unusual to see a huge amount of people during a week
