A change is as good a vacationJack Ryder was a television reporter, and he liked to think he was a good one. Considering his gross earnings he didnt think he was too far off in his opinion. If you asked anyone else most would probably agree. His journalistic integrity (which most critics would consider an oxymoron) was intact. He always reported the facts as he knew them, tried to present both sides of an argument where possible and never made up facts just for a story. If some people considered him arrogant, that was expected when you got good enough, and if he was somewhat of a workaholic, well, thats what you need to be to get anywhere in this day and age.A change is as good a vacation7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

She threw up again and he held her hair back until she was done, "This passes in a couple of months, right?"
She didn't know whether to be amused or touched; he'd just jumped out of a giant present box for her.
"Sugarplum, I can smell you," he called playfully and she ran just a little faster, laughing all the while.

It's a sunny afternoon in Gotham city, and in the park many Gothamites have gathered for the annual chili cook off. A fun day to just forget your worries and enjoy the various kinds of chili the city has to offer. But as with most festivities in Gotham, some of the usual riff raff shows up to ruin the fun.
The mayor begins his judging of the chili, trying a spoonful of the first contestant's chili. Immediately his mouth burns like he tried to swallow hot coals, and in a panic he grabs the nearest glass of water he can see and chugs like his life depends on it, but then he notices something on the table where the glass had been, a playing card. A joker playing card.

Sure Yugi was the hero, sure he had a wish to have friends. that's all fine and good..... but what of another character who had the SAME wish and yet was thrown to the wayside? That's right. I speak of Ryou Bakura. Like a lot of you fans out there, My friend and I (Miss-DNL) couldn't help but think that his story was overall sad beyond reason; not only that, his story could be, by far, more interesting than Yugi, who got everything off the bat and basically only helped a Pharaoh reclaim lost memory, while Bakura was a meat puppet to an Evil spirit and was never really focused on. Well, an RP later (still ongoing), we have made the story of Ba-Ku-Ra!

Even now people are still questioning whether Aang will use the Avatar State (AS) or not. Though we have two DVD cover pictures that clearly portray Aang in the AS, the question of whether he will use it and even how he will use it still seems to come up. As a Zutarian, I find it quite clear. It has been spelled out for us rather easily. And heres where we find it:
Aang: (startled) What? Why would I let go of Katara? I...I..I love her.
Guru Pathik: (reasonably) Learn to let her go, or you cannot let the pure cosmic energy flow in from the universe.
Aang: (crossly) Why would I choose cosmic energy over Katara? How could it be a bad thing that I feel an attachment to her? Three chakras ago, that was a good thing.
Guru Pathik: (firmly) You must learn to let go.

It was a rainy day in Domino city, it being spring it wasn’t an uncommon occurrence. Today’s downpour was particularly harsh though. It did make things a bit annoying for Akefia Bakura who was heading home to the family estate. He had gone out to gather some food for dinner. Despite the family being wealthy they still preferred to do things themselves rather than being lazy and hiring people. He previously had nothing to do so he went out to stretch his legs a bit while being productive.
The smell of rain was strong in the air as he walked even though he was in the crowded city; it was pretty refreshing to say the least. Though the cold it brought wasn’t as welcomed. “It’s either cold, wet or suffocating in this crowded place…” He muttered dully to himself, how he missed the open deserts of his homeland. The hot sun of Ra was far more welcomed than this. Then again he missed much about his motherland nowadays

You ran to the roof, hoping and praying that your dream was just a dream and not some sort of sign. You pushed open the door and were met with darkness. Were you really out that long? The only lights were from the lampposts and lights from apartments, hotels, and shops. It took your eyes a moment to adjust to the lack of lighting. You honestly were about to break down and cry when you didn't see the shadow of the person you had wanted to see.
Holding back your tears, you slowly walked towards the railing and looked down at the bustling city below despite it being dark out. You froze as an arm hooked around your waist while the other dangled over your shoulder and a familiar voice filled your ears.

We all know that this is a kids show, so the first thing that I want to point out is how far a relationship will go in this kids show.
Since it is a JUST A KIDS SHOW, any kind of romantic relationship will only go as far as a KISS. And Im definitely not saying that is a bad thing. I wanna keep it that way clean and simple. But for the sake of this theory, I thought Id point that out!
This doesnt mean that the series couldnt end with an epilogue episode, showing how the Gang ends up in the future, seeing who they marry, and how they help end the war through negotiations or a GREAT ROMANCE that helps everyone trust in the Fire Nation again (*hint*hint*). It just means that any sort of romantic relationship will only develop as far as a KISS.
