Perfect. She hated that word - it crushed her, broke her and left her shattered.
They told her to be perfect; perfect smile, perfect hair, perfect perfect perfect - the perfect princess, the perfect person.
But how can someone be perfect? It's a standard too high to live up to, only he ever allowed her to just be herself, herself was perfect enough for him - flaws and all, but they were always trying to make her be something she wasn't.
She loved to climb trees but her mother had said it wasn't ladylike - certainly not behaviour fit for a princess, and so she had given up the rush she'd feel when she'd reach the top of a tree, as if she had earned the beautiful view before her eyes - she gave it up without a fight, resigning herself to living her life from the ground, all proper posture and no leaves in her hair.
She hated the fancy dresses and annoying tiaras and neat hairstyles - she used to love to run, always in a hurry to get wherev

Tongue-Tied & Terrified
You were kind of amazing and I was a total train wreck.
I wasn't always like this you know; I used to smile, I used to laugh...hell, I used to actually talk a lot. But then he happened. He took my life and turned it into a nightmare. I just wanted to help him. Just help, that's all.
My parents had been fostering kids for years but he was their first teenager, a year older than me. He was the quiet type but sometimes his silences were scary, like you could just tell that the thoughts going through his head were wrong on so many levels.
Still, I knew enough of his story--enough of what his parents did to him--to forgive that. I swallowed my fear and I'd talk to him, baby steps and all that, and over time he changed. The way he would look at me changed and that scared me too. I didn't think he'd hurt me but I could tell that he wanted something from me, something I wasn't willing to give.
He stalked me in my own home and at school. Th

i went up to him when we were still complete strangers; he was just this boy with eyes the color of the sky on a clear day, and i was some random girl that just happened to be in the same room as him. he didn't look at me until i was standing right in front of him.
"i love you," i said quickly, once we made eye contact.
"i love you, too," he said without pausing.
he gave me unusual gifts.
a box of matches, a ziploc baggie filled with colorful sprinkles, a dead goldfish, and three ice cubes. (actually it was just a glass of water but he told me the ice cubes melted before he got to my house).
"what do they mean?"
he hestitated before answering. "they mean i love you, just in a different language."
he never used the word blue.
instead it was azure or teal or turquoise or indigo. he said that they were prettier words and they only had one meaning. blue could mean sad, but people never said that they were feeling especially azure today.

I watched as my mother's face contorted into a series of different expressions, from mild surprise to understanding to disappointment. My father, on the other hand, looked like he was having a hard time trying not to explode.
"No." he stated firmly through gritted teeth. "My son - my only son - is not... gay." He stood up and nodded his head, as if to confirm that his statement was true.
I was worried that this would happen. My father had never been too accepting of homosexuals. "Yes Dad, I am. I'm sorry if y-"
"Don't you DARE talk back to me!" he cut me off. "We have to do something about this. I will not have a queer living under my roof!"
I was as disgusted at him as he appeared to be at me. "Maybe I'll move out then!" I snarled.
My father laughed at this. "Yeah, go live with your boyfriend, Frank!"
"You know what? I think I will! At least he cares about me!"
Ha. He didn't see that one coming. I smirked to myself.
ShynessAnd the saying goesShyness9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Just be yourself; it'll come naturally"
And I say I'll try, though I know
For a fact that there is no such thing as a myself;
If there was, it'd be hidious.
Pretending, of course, is what they mean,
But I've been secluded from the world too long,
Up in my room...
I don't know how to pretend to be human.
I can't figure out how to pretend to be human.
And they say
"There are many levels to a person"
And I'll have to agree whole-heartedly.
I don't know how to keep my attention-span on reality
And all this head's good for is spewing out poetry;
It knows nothing else and I don't know how to learn.
I'm just slow
And I can't pretend...
I would if I could; I wanna pretend to be human,
But I can't figure out how to pretend to be human
In the first place.

About stuff they've seen that wasn't really there.

Alec heard Magnus sigh from across the room. "You're staring at me again." Alec's voice was soft but firm. Distant.
"I know." Was Magnus's only reply. Alec's eyes flicked up in surprise...he'd expected the High Warlock of Brooklyn to deny it but no. He just kept his glinting green eyes on those of the boy in the corner. Like a cat watching a mouse.
For a moment, Alec didn't know what to say. He felt bad for Magnus... the poor guy obviously liked him and it wasn't as if they couldn't be together either. Sure it was considered bad to be gay among their world and probably even worse for a Shadowhunter to be with a Warlock...but that wasn't really the problem.
The problem; Alec's heart was already spent on another person. Another person who didn't even know about the life-long crush. Jase Wayland the boy of his dreams was only a friend to him, only wanted to be his friend though

Sokka, my son. He whispered while Sokka continued to play with his hair. Hakoda began humming a song to his son, trying to calm him down.
Is the song for you or for Sokka? Hakoda looked up to see his friend, Bato, standing around the corner.
Its for Sokka. He smiled. Sokka just looked at his father, curious as to what he was doing.
Really? Cause it seems like you could use it more than he could. Bato joked with his friend. Hakoda just looked at his friend. So, how is she doing in there? Bato asked, deciding it wise to change the subject.

She seemed to be slower than normal fixing dinner. Perhaps thats why Sokka and Aang asked how things were going. She smiled or attempted to and said things were fine. They always left it at that. Never asking how she was. She never said anything. After they left, she rubbed her neck and tried to stretch her back, but nothing helped.
Zuko watched her intently. He could tell something was bothering her, but she mentioned nothing to Sokka or Aang. Just the way her face, her eyes were, he could tell she was in pain. Maybe he could help her in some way.
Katara, is something wrong? He asked in a low voice only they could hear.

The rain cascaded down their faces, but it went unnoticed. The thunder rolled in the background, but it was not heard. Nothing made a sound. Nothing mattered to them, except each other. It was as if everything in the world melted away, disappeared around them. There was nothing else but the two of them.
Katara swore she would never use such a method as she did. She swore never again to be reminded of such horrid displays of her wonderful bending she loved so much. Yet, here she was, breaking that very rule.

My Thoughts on FanfictionWell, fan fiction has been around a long time, no doubt about it. But how far is too far?

Simply put, I love fan fiction, I see it as a way to explore your creativity and work out characters. So a lot of band fan fiction, I don't really see the band in them, I see that fans use the band members as a base of some sort as to shaping characters, because the multiple stories I've read and continue to read, with the band as characters, their personalities are completely different. They open the doors to so many opportunities with story development, character building, that it amazes me how creative these people are. But there's a difference when it comes to the pairings.

She was planning on killing her friends when they got back, every single one of them who left her there with him. After Tophs feet were healed, Aang asked if she wanted to earth bend with him; to give him a break from fire bending. Of course she agreed, then told Sokka to go look for some food, she wanted meat for once instead of always rice. That forced Sokka to go hunting around for something big enough for all eight of them that he could kill. The three trouble makers were running around, as usual, snooping around the temples, wondering about secret rooms. Katara stayed at the temple to make sure that no one would sneak up on them from behind. Zuko had also decided to stay, only because Aang had told him to, but they both knew why.
