"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.

"Jean." You whispered. "It's morning."
Jean grumbled something and brushed your hand away, making you giggle. You replaced your hand again, and this time Jean;s words were slurred, but audible.
"Ah, go away Reiner, I'll be up in a few."
You chuckled, the laugh escaping your lips in a soft sigh. You closed your eyes, laying back onto the mattress, taking inventory of your body and its injuries.
There was fresh pain in your ribs, a dull hurt that seemed to spread through your chest. You could feel the sting of several splinters and scrapes in various places around your body, most noticeably on your legs and arms. You could still feel the

You pushed yourself off the ground and walked over to a window. The window was shielded by a heavy curtain which you grabbed with your trembling hand.

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 Symbolism4 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".

If you’re reading this, then Reiner and I are already far beyond the walls. This also means that you’ve discovered the truth about us, and what we really are. I wish I had the courage to say this directly to you, but I guess I’ll have to say it here instead: Reiner and I are the Armored and Colossal Titan. The ones who broke through Wall Maria, and almost succeeded with Wall Rose. The ones sent to infiltrate humanity’s forces and destroy them. The ones who worked with Annie Leonhart, the Female Titan, and the ones responsible for hundreds and thousands of military and civilian deaths.
When I first joined the 104th Trainees Squad, I was prepared for people to hate me for what I had done, who I was, and what I was going to do. I had it all planned out; I would avoid everyone and only look out for Reiner, Annie, and myself. After all, what could we possibly have in common with everyone else?

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.)

Summary: Arthur is having a hard time accepting that his little girls may be growing up.
The sight of lacey under things was nothing new for Arthur. Having been with Francoise for as long as he had had made the sight of even the most expensive and risqué undergarments nearly mundane to him, especially come laundry day. He already knew what setting to put the washer on, how much soap and fabric softener to use, and yes, he admitted that sometimes he would cling to a stray bra or panty a bit too long and run his fingers against the smooth fabric and reminisce about all the fun they'd had while Francoise wore them.
Today was not so mundane, because as he shifted through the seemingly endless piles of clothing in the laundry room, his hand landed on pair that he did not recognize. It was new, he could tell from the price tag that had carelessly been left unclippe

Jean climbed under the covers with you and pulled you closer into his warmth. The thin blanket that covered you both didn't do much of a good job of it.
You and Jean had been seeing each other for a while now. It's gotten to be a decent amount of time considering you and him were both in your underwear sharing a bed.

The air was heavy with suffocating madness, so thick you could barely see through it. The madness formed a black barrier over the dismal battle field, blocking out any sights and sounds from the outside world; which seemed so distant from the terror inside. The gravel field it hung over was cracked and caving in on many areas; scars left from battle. The gray stone that once stood as a wall, now broken into large rocky masses lying crushed on the ground. Crumpled bodies lay scattered across the wreckage, sprawled out and unmoving.
A blue haired boy, head hung low, sat in the crevice of a large boulder jutting out from the ground; limbs hanging limply over the sides. Next to the boulder where the boy sat, a girl with dark hair, lye on the slanted surface of a nearby rock. Both were unconscious.

You reached the dock that allowed ferries to stop along the rocky shore, you hurled yourself off the edge, throwing your glider out in front of you and jumping.

Maka's stride slowed as she walked the short distance to the kitchen. When she reached a corner, she peered around it, carefully searching the quiet apartment. The resolve she had just mustered had evaporated as quickly as it had come. Judging by the silence, Soul must have gone back to his room. She didn't really know why she thought he would do otherwise.
