"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."

Antonio waited by you until you had lugged the bag out, then waved at his mother as she pulled away from the curb. “Dios mio,” he grinned at you, “Who are all of those for?”
You pouted at him, “All of my friends.” The expression on his face was priceless, “And you!” you told him, searching through the bag for the one marked ‘Toni’. When you finally pulled out the chocolate dessert, his emerald eyes went wide.
He held the cupcake like it was a precious jewel for a moment before crushing you in a hug. “Gracias, (F/n)!” he cheered.
Returning the hug, albeit weakly, you coughed out a quiet “You’re welcome” before the teen released you.

Arthur sighed and slumped his chin against the heel of his hand. A small farmer and his family had waited in a line for most of the day and the previous night, just to ask the king if he could possibly lower his taxes. Like that could ever happen.
However, the current king was fair and just, so he didn't send the man off with guards at his heels. Instead, the bearded man leaned forward in his chair, danger twinkling in his eyes. "I will raise and lower the taxes as I feel fit. I would suggest now that you take your loved ones and leave. Thank you."
Still shaking, the farmer sadly turned from the king and made his way back to his family, tired head lowered and once strong shoulders hunched under the power of his king. Just as the meager looking family had left through the heavy wooden doors, one of them came running back.

He saw her, way far off, sitting on the dock. It was the same dock that he had arrived at, the same dock where he'd met the airbender kids for the first time.

Mako and Asami sat close to each other, fingers laced together as they watched her bend. Bolin sat nearby, cheering her on with Pabu's assistance.
She whirled through the spinning gates with the kids, feet flying. All four were a blur of yellow as they matched the current of the air. The three children danced with the wind, airborne and free, grins on their faces. Even Korra had risen off the ground. Even Korra looked happy. All four of them matched in outfits and smiles.
It was strange seeing her airbend, seeing her light and carefree, even if it was for only a moment. With the weight of the world on her shoulders it took a lot of strength to smile. She was so strong, so brave, so selfless. Korra spun out with a gust of wind, and her lips curled up as she landed and bowed for her audience. She laughed as Bolin applauded her. Her grin was beautiful, and with the sun shining down on them, Korra truly glowed.

Tahno stood still, his muscles tight, fists clenched. It wasn't like before, when he'd been hunched over on the bench in the police station, when he'd shuffled along after Tenzin and Beifong, when he'd barely had the strength to lift his head and look at her in the eye.
He stood tall, proud, and alone. Mostly alone.
Korra watched him from afar, gripping the bark of the tree that she hid herself behind. Her fingertips pressed into the trunk.
Tahno lowered himself a bit, unbending his knees and swaying with his hips as he leaned forward ever so slightly. He was in the proper stance. He held his hands out in front of him and slowly moved them back and forth, matching his rhythm with that of the water. Korra bit her lip, and a piece of the guilt that she'd been pushing back tried to slither its way back onto her conscience. It whispered in her ear, whispered the things that she wanted to ignore and forget and toss in the very same river that Tahno stood b

She was Asami Sato, her father's daughter.
She sat in front of the truth-teller at her vanity, staring at her own reflection as she brushed out her thick hair, unknotting the tangles from its last washing. It fell in its classic soft wave over her left shoulder, shadowing her face. With both hands, she pulled it back and tied it so she could clear her canvas. She did not smile as she looked at her skin, pale and cold and worn and weary. She saw her eyes; they were her favorite feature on herself. They were green and unlike her father's. She did not smile.
Asami would wear purple eyeshadow tonight. It made her eyes look even greener.
An array of makeup was laid out in front of her, mascara and blushes and foundations ready and waiting to be painted on her face. Shiny golden tubes of lipstick were lined up in a neat row next to one of her jewelry cases, organized by hue. Her hand lingered between two, the soft pink and the deep red, before she made her decision.

The crowd surrounded her, hurling insults so fierce and strong that she fell to her knees. She'd lost. She'd lost everything and therefore deserved their hatred. Mako glared at her from a rooftop, Asami snickering on his arm. Bolin refused to make eye contact. Jinora ignored. Ikki sniggered. Meelo laughed.

Tenzin plowed through the crowd. Her heart, weak and tired and fragile, rose at the sight of him and started to soar when he lifted her off the dirty street, pulling her through the mass of people.

Naga raced through the dirty streets of Republic City, skidding as she turned the corners. Korra leaned over her, bouncing in the saddle, the reins tight in her grip. The air rushed against her face, sending her hair flying back behind her and filling her lungs with the city's polluted air.
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.

The Fire Ferrets had been having a perfectly lovely evening at the bar, celebrating their latest victory. There had been much laughing, dancing, and heavy drinking (all of those being strictly Korra-and-Bolin activities). Mako had been content slowly nursing his drink, relishing in the win and their happiness. Things started going south, however, when Bolin had sauntered away from their table to make an attempt at wooing another fangirl. Having lost her drinking buddy, Korra proceeded to get louder and more raucous, arguing with a Tigerdillos fan, standing on top of their table, making a scene, and somehow managing to catch the attention of the usually mellow bar owner.
Before the three got into serious trouble, Mako had grabbed Korra's arm, Bolin's collar, and the last bits of his reputation and dragged the two of the

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.

"Now what?" I whispered, already having asked what I needed to know. He liked me. He liked me enough to walk me home, to hold my hand, to put his arm around me in an act of drunkeness. He liked me.
And now all I could think about was whether he wanted to kiss me or whether he was playing around with my feelings. Either way, he was there, and it was so loud in my head, and he was so beautiful. His arms reached out, two elongated limbs that I ached to have around my own body. I didn't hug, I didn't even touch, I just stared. But this time I wouldn't. This time was different.&

In the mere turn of a few minutes her cold, cold eyes became warm with the light of water. The sound of crashing waves was a sweet lullaby that heard her wishes. The ocean was its own DJ, playing an album of beauty and perfection. The girls auburn hair danced in the wind, an ocean in itself of swinging strands. She drank in the scene before her and swallowed it all at once like a quick shot of tequila. The sun swam behind the beautiful scene, rays of orange fire turning the water to gold.Sea Water in Settings More Like This

"What a peculiar name for a boy, don't you think?" she asked along the way. A small chuckle escaped from between his thin lips. He continued to walk but answered her question in a sarcastic manner.
"Oh yes, that's the nicest thing to say to the person whom you just met!" he yelled back with a laugh. Melody scowled and continued to trek behind the strange boy. She observed him more closely and saw that the plated armor he wore had deep indentations on them that seemed to swoop and swirl around. His gloves that he wore ended at his elbows and swirled off to the side. Same with the long boots he wore that ended with swirls at his toes and knees.
"Well I mean, Nighlight? It's original and all but why didn't your mother just name you something normal?" she asked again.
"You ask WAY to many questions." he yelled back again. Melody thought for a moment and couldn't help but ask another question.

It was a soft, temperate spring day, and Melody and Jack had been doing the regular schedule. He would meet Melody by the patch of flowers East of the river, South of the Grass hills, and North of the direction of the wind.

"Let's talk." he said at last, his voice hard and croaked. Pitch's form suddenly dispersed and Jack felt a chilling presence behind him. When he turned nothing was there, but when Jack turned again Pitch was standing in front of him. His tall frame was hard and perfectly shaped, not like his usualy shadowy form.
"Now young Melody is very powerful, and very strong. She has a light in her that I've never seen in any immortal before. Well, one other time," he paused grabbing his chin in thought with long gray fingers. Jack looked at him with a thoughtful face and questioned,
"No one else on this Earth has the same ability has Melody. No one." he said pointing a pale finger at the man. Pitch laughed roughly.

He rised up, the snow slipping off of him into a powdery mess. When he stood up, his eyes stung against the wind, and the sun glowed brightly against the snow. The glaciers glittered below, and they stood still. Jack had purple bags under his eyes, and he rubbed his left eye. His eyes were still red and swollen, and they looked rough and tired. He squinted his eyes, and looked around.
He was on the end of a cliff in the barren land, and around him icy cliffs were iced with sparkling snow. He'd looked back out to the edge when a voice sounded from behind him.

She trembled lightly as moving posed to be more of a strain than she intened. she still felt incredibly weak, and the ever slight drain on her energy was prominent, but it had lessened enough for her to recover, if only a little.

The crack split off in three separate directions, twisting and darting off in all sorts of ways. It wasn't very big, but Jack still worried if it would affect the images. Jack concentrated on North again, finding surprisingly easy to draw an image. It was as clear as the first time, and he was relieved to find the crack had not damaged the orbs performance.

It was Black who had saved them last time, if not for her, they would have fallen to their knees before him long ago. Did they really think that the distance between him and Black would make enough of a difference for them to overcome him once more? He scoffed at their ignorance. Of course they thought that, he mused. They saw themselves as envoys of light, and hope, and joy, and that gave them overconfidence. Without Black, they would crumble before him.
