"I don't know about this. Why don't we ride something else first, something like the Ferris wheel or the carousel, you know to help build up the anticipation or something." Prussia stood outside the line for the biggest, fastest roller coaster in the park.
You shook your head. "No way, the lines going to get crazy if we wait, that's why we had to get here early. What's the matter, you scared or something?" You poked him and gave him a teasing grin.
"No way man, I'm way to awesome to be scared." He grabbed your hand and led you into the already growing line. Despite what he said, you knew he wasn't big on roller coasters, or thrill rides in general, you were actually a bit shocked he'd even agreed to come with you today. The closer you two got to the front of the line, the tighter he held your hand.
"You don't have to ride it you know. You can just walk through to the other side if you want. I don't mind riding it by myself."

Though, the term "cold" was more like an old friend in these northern lands. Winter was a constant companion for miles upon miles—a bitter wind was almost always nipping at a traveler's nose, snowflakes added to the layers of white innocence in a thick blanket at least every three days, and ice forming crystalline patterns on the trunks of dying trees was more common than the waters of the river that ran past the village truly flowing through the land instead of being frozen in time.
The people of the village had lived in the lands long enough to know when winter's true nature was fast approaching. The days were even shorter; nights more dark and treacherous, where the simple notion of not wearing boots to bed could make a man wake up in the morning with frostbite. It was a small village, one full of superstition and lore, as well as brutal hunters determined to f

It seems to be a bit of a big factor in my life right now, both in my own personal life and the life of those close to me.
In fact, it seems a factor in everyone’s lives. It’s almost like, a rite of passage. A test to prove you’re alive.
I’ve definitely had my share of regretful moments (in fact, I’d argue I’ve had more than my fair share). They knock me down a peg, which is good, because I get the feeling if I had much self- worth I would be a bitch . My most humbling experiences come from my love life, however.
Now, before you go thinking this is just another piece of teenage angst where I talk about how poorly I was treated or how poorly I treated my significant others… well it’s not. Truth is we’re both to blame in all cases. They were selfish jerks who were insensitive to my lack of experience in the dating area (and two of them didn’t have much experience themselves), and I suffered from a

For ten consecutive times in a row, Alfred F. Jones, the personification of America himself, missed out on a social gathering.
Well okay, admittedly, social gathering probably sounds a bit too formal. The other countries weren't having meetings (which he was also frequenting less often); they were just having fun. Going swimming, getting drunk, partying...I thought he'd at least come to the parties. If anyone likes parties, I assured myself, it's America
But I was wrong.
Two things kept me from exploring this any further until now, however.
1. Guilt, as I'd only noticed his absence about the 5th time around.
2. I still saw him at the meetings, even if it wasn't as often, which let me know that he was at least okay.
But even during the meetings, it was like he was a different person. He didn't take charge of the meetings like he used to, spewing his hilariously ridiculous ideas about whatever.
Something was wrong, very wrong.

I'm not sure why; I guess it's because we're both so shy and so we don't say much.
It's alright though; between the two of us, we don't need to say much. We just kind of look at each other and know what the other is thinking.
So we have a lot of conversations that I guess someone on the outside would call telepathic. It's not accurate, but it's the best way I could describe it.
One day, Matthew came over to my house and saw me surfing the web.
"Hey, _______. What are you looking up?" he asked.
No telepathy yet, but give it a sec.

Naga was her companion the friend that would always be there for Korra, no matter what.
No matter how bad things got, no matter how royally the Avatar screwed up, no matter how many people she let down, Korra would always have Naga to look to, to hug when nothing was going right.
When Korra had first been taken away from her parents and the excitement had worn off and the loneliness set in, Naga was the one she spent her quiet nights with, silently crying and wishing for the company of her mommy and daddy.
When she had whizzed through all of her bending tests with flying colours, Naga was the one she ran to and expressed her joy to, nuzzling her and grinning widely.
When the Avatar came to Republic City the only one she truly trusted, at first, was Naga. When Mako pushed her too far over the edge or the stress became too much, Korra could safely vent to the polar bear dog without any worries of judgement, unlike what she would receive even if she talked to e

The ex-Fire Lord remembered with a smile when she had gotten married to the Airbending Avatar she had practically glowed, her inner flame burning with radiance. She was absolutely beautiful as she walked to Aang, ready to spend the rest of her life with him. Zuko had smiled at her and told her how lucky the Avatar was, and she blushed.

Bending the water from the bathtub, Korra gently swished it at Katara, who slapped at it playfully. The Avatar almost wished her daughter would raise her arms and bend it back, but alas, this did not happen. Instead, Katara slapped her hands in the water loudly, humming nonsense to her three-year-old self. To amuse the child further, Korra pulled some bubbles from the water and floated them around Katara's face, landing on her nose and rosy cheeks and causing her to giggle cutely.

The days of his once-fabulous life blurred together, all the same, never changing. Tahno was lost in a fog of confusion, of depression.
To the former Waterbender, he felt as though those miserable times would never end for him, that he was doomed to live such a ragged existence until he finally collapsed in on himself and succumbed to the pleasant numbness of death. That without his bending, he was nothing all of his fan girls and so-called friends were gone and he no longer had the money to spend as lavishly as he once had. He had lost everything that had been so futilely important to him. The familiar comfort that bending water brought him was gone, leaving him to be indescribably lonely and empty.

Korra bent some water into her hands from the vents underneath her and shot it fiercely towards the Pro-Bending competitor in front of her, sending them into the last Zone of the arena. Mako was on her right, sending a ferocious, unrelenting barrage of Firebending attacks at his own foe. Bolin was to her left, blasting earth disks at the competitor she was also trying to knock off. This was the final round of their championship match, and they had already knocked off the other team's Waterbender, and the other members of the team were quickly tiring out. There were only two more members to knock off the platform and the Fire Ferrets would win the championship!
This thought made Korra smile to herself as she collected some more water and continued to shoot it at the panicking team member. He was trying desperately to stay on the platform, to avoid falling into the water below him. It was futile, though her and Bolin's synced attacks were too much for him to handle at

You really only knew Oikawa Tooru as the daycare’s resident brat. Unlike you, who was a perfectly well-behaved and well-mannered child, he went around causing havoc for the daycare’s caretakers to deal with. Whether he was stealing toys from other kids, making a mess out of anything and everything, or blubbering about how he was being ‘bullied’ (that is, after he made fun of another kid), he was nothing but an utter nuisance, and so for the most part, you steered clear of him. You were little, sure, but even your four year old self could realize how troublesome he was and wanted no part of it.
He was content with terrorizing other children, always leaving you be or missing you in the process, until that particular day.

His parents weren't all that wealthy, but they were able to provide for the young boy. What they lacked in money, they had in love towards their son. They showered him with affection, always making sure they knew how much they adored him and how they would always be there for him.
Eventually, his little brother, baby Bolin, entered their lives, and was welcomed by each member of their small family. He had the green eyes of their mother, but the same tousled hair of the Firebending father, and though Mako was confused by this child's sudden occurrence in his life, he showed him the love his parents always gave him. He quickly grew attached to his little brother, vowing to keep him protected and safe no matter what.

After returning to Republic City from being at the South Pole for a short bit, both Mako and Korra learned that their new relationship was not without difficulties, as both suspected it would be filled with. With Korra being the Avatar and Mako being a new cop, they spent more and more time apart than together and at the end of the day, it was that much harder for the pair to see each other, to just be together like two kids their age always wanted to be.
It took months to find a balance between their lives together and their work. Neither of them wanted their jobs to interrupt the short, precious moments they had together, but seeing as how different things were always pulling them away from each other, it was seemingly impossible.
Countless fights and unofficial break ups occurred before they decided they were being naive and stupid that they shouldn't be acting so immature with the time they had together. So, while it took a few years and tears, a balance was

She wore a long, dark jacket and a hat that kept sliding down over her eyes. Her hair was down, her messenger bag was full of various foods (moon peaches, spring dumplings, fresh bread, potatoes, etc.), and the strap dug into her shoulder.
But still, she walked on. Alone.
Her destination was hidden deep inside the now nearly abandoned district. Honestly, she did not know if anyone knew its location but her. He'd done a good job of going into hiding. And while it seemed strange that she, the Avatar, would have to conceal her identity to walk the streets of the city, of her city, it was necessary. She couldn't let anyone discover her secret. She needed it. She needed the secret, and so she kept it inside, dark and throbbing

Sure, Mako was ecstatic that they had dominated the Buzzard Wasps, but he didn't particularly see the need to 'go public' with his emotions regarding the tournament. His teammates disagreed wholeheartedly, and had somehow succeeded in dragging him out to the popular Moon Peach jazz club on the west side of the city.
His idea of a celebration was something a bit more quiet, more relaxing, without all the people, and it certainly was packed tonight. When they'd arrived, there had been a substantial number of people, but once word got out that the Avatar was out at the Moon Peach, people came flooding in. Honestly, Mako just wanted to spend time alone with Korra. But he refused to join in and dance, so he stood on the side of the action, leaning against the

The Rabbiroos' firebender was actually putting up a fight. He was a really good pro-bender. Not as good as Mako, but definitely more of a challenge than his thin, wiry appearance had led Korra to believe.
She was stuck against the railing in Zone Three as he fought against her, hurling blasts of bright fire her way in rapid succession. It was taking nearly all of her energy to draw up water from the grate in front of her to lash away the attacks. He was bending too fast for her to get an attack in herself. She growled in frustration each time. Her instincts begged her to stop being an idiot and just use her firebending to cut through his attacks, whorl the flames down, around, and back at him, Avatar style. She ignored them.

The two had spent the evening out in the city, aimlessly meandering through the streets. Korra had been wanting an official tour ('official' meaning the kind that showcased the coolest, hole-in-the-wall places) since she'd learned that the two brothers had lived in Republic City their entire lives.

How could she let this happen? She had to get there now. She had to go faster. She had to.
She pushed Naga into a sprint.
She'd never been on this side of the city, and she could see why. It was an old industrial center, back from when the city first took root, and most of the buildings were now abandoned. Their companies followed Future Industries when they planted their new home in another district. Glass windows had been broken in. Doors were boarded up. She didn't want to think about how many orphans were curled up inside some of these buildings, huddling together, willing themselves warm.
Korra pressed Naga on, and her eyes

She watches the graves,
Of friends, family, lovers.
They have all take their last breaths,
She will never take another.
Knowing that she will never again see the light of the sun,
The warm touch of a loved one.
She must steal the innocents of the blind,
Those that wouldn't understand,
Knowing nothing of her kind.
She doesn't want to.
But there is always that craving,
This is the only way she can survive.

Cinnamon challenge (AmericaXReader)“You’re just too chicken!” Alfred cried, pointing at you. “Am not!” You shouted back and growled when he started squawking. “Prove it.” He said, a smug look on his face.Cinnamon challenge (AmericaXReader) in Romance More Like This
Contemplating on whether this was a good idea or not, you grabbed the cinnamon and a spoon. Alfred leant on the counter behind him, his arms crossed and watching your every move.
After sending him a withering look you heaped some of the amber spice on the spoon. You gulped once and placed the cinnamon in your mouth. Alfred smirked at you, your eyes watering as you tried to swallow it.
You managed to swallow most of it, then you collapsed on the sink. Your fumbling fingers reached for the tap but Alfred held your hands, preventing you from wetting your dry mouth.
“A-Al!!” You moaned, but he merely grinned evilly at you. Somehow you managed to rid of the overpowering taste in your mouth and groaned.
“You have no idea how bad that tastes....” You told him,
Want to? (Photographer Male HungaryXReader)You puffed out your cheeks in thought, swinging your legs as you sat on the small table. The dim lights made it hard to see, but then again your iPod’s screen lit up. Besides all you were doing at the moment was sit around and wait for your friend to finish up.Want to? (Photographer Male HungaryXReader) in Romance More Like This
Your friend was quite a popular model ever since she’d been spotted on the street. She’d been hauled in by the modelling agency pretty much immediately. Today you’d agreed to go out for some cake but she’d cancelled at the last minute, saying she had a shoot to go to.
And well, you’d suggested that you’d go with her and afterwards you’d go and get some goodness from your favourite little cake shop, the one run by that adorable frenchie.
Your friend had been stressing out when you came to the shoot though, babbling on about the photographer being difficult to work with. So far the guy didn’t seem that bad. He was wearing simple clothes, a black polo neck and blue jeans, but th
New Years (PrussiaXReader)It was New Years eve and you’d agreed (foolishly) to let your boyfriend invite his two friends over for the celebration. He’d promised it would be fun and said the more the merrier, but still! Well, it was your own fault for allowing it and besides, they’d probably get too drunk and pass out anyway.New Years (PrussiaXReader) in Romance More Like This
You were just finishing up in the kitchen, the red apron that was tied around your neck bearing the brunt of the traces of ingredients. Gilbert was ‘helping’ too by sneaking a taste of whichever nibbly things you created and telling you how awesome they were no matter how many times he got clobbered by the various skillets that were lying around.
He cheered when he heard the doorbell ring and ran off to get tackled by his friends. After greeting each other loudly, they swaggered into the room, completing their Bad Touch Trio, as they called themselves, with identical smirks on their faces.

Sleeping positions (RomaniaXReader)Blearily you blinked your eyes open, the familiar warm feeling as always present. Glancing down you confirmed what you’d suspected. Vladimir breathed out softly, his hair ruffled up completely and several curls sticking out from it.Sleeping positions (RomaniaXReader) in Romance More Like This
He tightened his arms around you, snuggling his face deeper into your chest. Blushing slightly, you stroked his hair, attempting to at least straighten out some of it. You always seemed to end up in this position, no matter how you’d started the night before.
It didn’t seem that comfortable to you; his head was nowhere near his cushion and he was practically buried underneath the cover.
It was an adorable habit of his though, one you weren’t going to break anytime soon. As your musing continued, you smiled at him and due to his sleeping face you guessed he was still deeply in dreamland.
Well you were wrong.
“Ouch!” You squeaked, glaring down at the Romanian. “What was that for?”
He carried on nibbling on your
Liquorice (IcelandxReader)“I can’t believe it.” You grumbled, puffing out your cheeks haughtily. “You can’t believe what?” Emil asked, glancing towards where you were sat with your legs pulled up to your chest. You blew out some air, making a couple of strands of hair fly upwards.Liquorice (IcelandxReader) in Romance More Like This
“My friends. I told them I liked liquorice and they wrinkled their faces in disgust.” You looked at the Icelander. “I mean, they haven’t even tried tasting it! They said the smell ‘put them off’.” Rolling your eyes angrily, you opened your mouth, Emil placing the tip of a liquorice stick in it.
Munching on it, you studied the sky. The rooftop of the school always had been one of your favourite spots to be, even more so when you could be with Emil. He never really said a lot when you were around other people, but he opened up when you got him alone.
“It just means there’s more for us.” Emil shrugged and patted your head, a stick of the
Cold hands (Male UkraineXReader)“Dmitri!” You cried, flinging yourself at the Ukrainian in the doorway. A flurry of snowflakes scurried inside with him as he tried to close the door without letting go of you. “I missed you!” You told him, planting kisses on his cold cheeks.Cold hands (Male UkraineXReader) in Romance More Like This
“Hang on...” he murmured, pecking your nose as he shrugged off his wet trench coat and knitted scarf. “There we go!” Dmitri took hold of you properly, discarding his gloves in the process.
He smiled happily as you returned the hug, your warm hands tracing his cooler frame. Shivering slightly at the difference in temperature, he pressed his forehead against yours.
“I missed you too.” He said, his signature smile gracing his chapped lips. “C’mon, let’s get you warmer.”
You tugged his wrist, making him follow you into the heated room. He relaxed, though his hands were starting to go numb.
He pulled you back for a hug and of course you didn’t refuse. His hands st

The place was filled with light as though very your presence was coaxing the sunlight to shine through the window. “Want some more coffee?” You asked, getting the pot out when he nodded.Bedsheets (Male UkraineXReader) in Romance More Like This
You scrunched your face in concentration as you poured, the thing was pretty heavy and you didn’t want to drop it or spill boiling coffee on yourself. Dmitri poked the crease between your brows when you straightened up, not having wasted a single drop.
Slapping his hand away playfully, you set the coffee pot back onto the stove and watched as he continued reading the newspaper. He glanced up every now and then, catching your eye and grinning.
He simply couldn’t get over that adorable tendency you’d developed. You’d been routinely wearing his shirts ever since that first time, using them as pyjamas mostly and pairing them up with either your underwear or some shorts.
Either way you ended up showing off a lot of leg.
Nothing simpler (NetherlandsXReader)Tim tapped his foot impatiently, grinding another cigarette into the brick surface of the low wall he was currently sitting on. Fruitlessly, he checked his watch again, one of his legs jiggling up and down to try and release some of his tension.Nothing simpler (NetherlandsXReader) in Romance More Like This
Where the hell were you?! The two of you had agreed to meet up an hour ago and you’d showed neither hide nor hair. Chewing on the end of his cigarette, he tried lighting the tip of it, but missed in his bad mood, singing the tips of his long, pale fingers.
You smiled widely, spotting the strange hair and telltale white and blue striped scarf of your friend. Just on time you thought, as you heard the bell tower behind you strike the half hour. “Hey! Tim!” You cried, waving as you came closer to your Dutch friend.
He looked up irritatedly, his glare making you falter in your steps towards him. Had you done something to upset him? But you’d only just got here!
Tim scowled at you, though he was happy to see you hadn’t

Moving your arms was difficult and when you tried to tug them apart, something held them together. Rope? You beat your tail gently and you felt the water you were submerged in wave slightly.
Turning around you tried to swim to the surface of the ocean but after a moment you bashed your face into something. You’d grown accustomed to the burning light by now and slowly opened your eyes.
The image that spread in front of you was something you’d never forget. Humans. Humans, tons of them! They were everywhere, throngs of them crowding around the sphere you were stuck in. Panic took over you and you looked around frantically.
A sort of humming noise was coming from them and they were all opening and closing their mouths like beached fish. You beat your scaled tail against the hard glass aga

He dragged you inside, one of his arms around your waist as he closed the front door. “You know, you’ll go deaf.” He told you, tapping the earphones which were blasting music loudly into your ears.Play at night (AmericaXReader) in Romance More Like This
“You know, you’ll get fat.” You teased, poking his stomach gently. He pouted and you straightened up. “Touché.” You grinned at his remark and planted a kiss on his cheek, using one of your hands to turn down the music.
Interlacing your fingers, he pulled on your hand, tugging you in the familiar direction of his room. “So which one are we playing today?” You questioned, barely keeping up with him as he was taking two steps at a time.
“New one Kiku asked me to test, it’s got a weird name I can’t pronounce though.” He added the last part sheepishly, sinking down in the red beanbag. Joining him
