Old Wyoming Penitentiary, Rawlins, WY
The team visit an old prison where former inmates still lurk within the building.
Before the Lockdown
It had been nearly a month since my previous investigation with the Ghost Adventures Crew, waiting to hear from them with anticipation. As promised by Zak, they contacted me and requested that I accompany them once again outside New York. Arriving at our destination the day before, I spent the night in my hotel room pondering over the lockdown to come.
Knowing that the following day, I would be on my own Ghost Adventures.

"The Spirits Are Inn" is the sign over the Hotel's door and it works perfectly.
My friends, Jamie Rios, Kahla Persell and myself attended the Shanley Hotel Lock Down event on January 21st-22nd. We got to the Hotel in a bit late during Jeff's lecture in the Great Room but he was awesome. As he showed a quick mediation while closing our eyes and it was very quiet he quickly yelled "BOO!" which made me almost jump out of my skin.
Anyway, I happened to spot the Hotel's owner Sal Nicosa. After a few minutes of arranging rooms, Kahla, Jamie and I had our room in the Gentlemen's Quarters. We settled with having to share a bed since the rooms were over-booked.
We then watched a lecture from Gary Robusto, Founder of Tri-City NYPS. What I found the most interesting is he's a graduate of culinary school among other professions while being a Paranormal Investigator. His team does some amazing community projects like Breast Cancer walks.
Soon we were ready to ghost hunt, but we had to sign wai

"Hey, come on Aaron. Let's give our guest some vlog time."
Aaron turns the camera, bright light on illuminating the dark room, my eyes fluster whe he flashes the light in my face.
"Oh, hey "
"Sorry." Aaron chuckled behind the camera.
"So, special guest. Tell 'em your name." He asked me.
"I'm Aura Gibbons and I won the contest for Most Intense Fan-Lockdown. So I'm spending an entire night with these guys."
"We driving you crazy yet?" Zak asked.
"Nah, in fact you guys have been awesome. Got some even crazy stuff going on." I added.
Just then, footsteps enter the room and Nick appears with a plastic-wrapped plate.
"What's that, Nick?" Aaron asked behind the camera.
"Well, since we have a guest with us and we're in for a long night I brought " He unraveled the plastic as I walked over the table.

Escaped a clouded life
Embedded with fear
Not knowing where I was going
It's true that I
Was raised in a living hell
With very few times
Of light and love
Then I once found
A hidden strength
I picked myself up
And kept moving on
Going to College
And I find myself
Choose my path
Find my strengths
On my paths, my most feared
One tried to make me
Give into their negative ideas
But I wouldn't fall or give up
So like my hero said
Put positive in place of negative
I recalled him wishing me
Luck on my path
What do I feel
Like I could
Take on the world
I had to battle this negativity
I came into this world fighting
My will and spirit are strong
And that's how I'll stay
What was my living hell?
Let me tell ya
My feared one tormented
My mind and heart
I felt powerless at times
But somehow and someway
Something remained strong
Deep inside me and couldn't be beat
The worst torment I faced
Was being told that their death
Will be my fault because

My Near-possessionIt happened on the night of November 8th, my cousin Jessica and I were filming our 3rd lockdown.My Near-possession in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
While we sat in the dark basement, she had this alarm clock which changes color ONLY when you press the button on top and she covered it with a pillow to block the light.
Pretty soon, it began changing color by itself.
1)The pillow was too light to press the button
2)There's NO setting to make it do that.
We stared at it for several minutes before I realized her camcorder was on the tripod, so we did get it on film.
After filming the basement more, Jess heard a cackling voice and began feeling like something bad was gonna happen, which didn't scare me much. However, I did wonder why not much else was happening and hoped something more would happen.
But what's really freaky is what happened afterwards:
While we filmed upstairs in my bedroom, I was holding the camera filming the room with Jess behind me. Soon, I began feeling tense with my arms trembling enough to where I gripped the camera.

Alone in the autumn forest, I picked up my head and howled. I'm a lone grey wolf and was separated from my pack. Wandered the forest, listened to the rustling leaves in the autumn wind. Soon I heard two human female voices in the distance, one was young and the other was an adult. Peeked through the trees and saw the white house and heard their muffled voices.
The young female sounded distressed and the adult was fierce in anger, slowly I ventured closer to hear more while making sure no other human saw me. My sensitive hearing could pick up the argument. The young female begged desperately to her mother to leave this place, go to another home and be in a safer place to prosper. But the adult mother angrily threatened the young one if she left and her mother decided to die by her own hand, then it would be the young female's fault. My ears perked up and eyes shot open as I walked back a step. How could a mother say such a thing to her own offspring?

You went home straight after school that day, you father was in the kitchen preparing dinner. You told him you were going to do your homework and would be down in an hour.
You emptied the contents of your bag on your bed and after sorting the paper, the books, textbooks and the notebooks you began writing your small paper. Normally it would have taken you less than an hour but with it being assigned by Dean, and the subject alone reminding you of him, it proved a lot harder than you thought. Despite the difficulties you managed to finish it just as your father told you to hurry because dinner was ready. You hastily gathered the books, putting them aside, you gathered all the papers and put them aside too and then you took a few remaining ones, folded or not, and put them with the textbook you'd written your paper, seeing as Dean wanted the sources of your information along with what you'd written.

You tried to go back but he gripped you tight, putting a hand on your arms.

"Come on now!" he all-but shouted, face completely serious, and your eyes widened, a few tears running down your cheeks.
You stopped fighting, afraid that you would make him angry. Because even if you managed to break free from his grip there was no way that you would manage to escape from all of them.

Oh boy was it hard.
Dean had fallen in love with you, without even realizing it, and he could not do anything about it (not yet at least) before he decided what he would do with her.
His wife. Lisa. They've been married for at least two years and he'd been dating her for another two.
He loved her, yes, but that was probably in the beginning of their relationship. If you asked Dean he'd say that he still loved her after their marriage but that was half the truth.
When they first got married everything was alright but then Dean started feeling as if things had started to change or maybe that's how they were before the marriage but he had not realized it. And it wasn't him that had started changing but her.
It happened to be many times that Lisa would be away from home, appearing on some kind of movie or guest starring at some TV show, so Dean did not have the chance to see her very often, and it made him feel as if they we

Stories of a princess falling for an unprivileged but nice guy. Stories of an angel falling for a demon, though still good. Stories of a human girl falling for an angel boy or the other way round.

Dean groaned as he was pulled out of his peaceful sleep. He tried to open his eyes but the light that hit his face made his headache worse.
"This is going to be one hell of a hangover" he thought and turned side so that the light from the window would no longer hit his face.
A hell of a hangover for sure.
Considering the amounts of alcohol he had consumed the night before, of course. And, well, it was not his fault. More like Lisa's, but he could not say no. She insisted that they had a few drinks at their place to celebrate their anniversary and Dean could not refuse doing so, after having forgotten to buy a present. Not to mention that he had even forgotten that it was their anniversary. And that had happened just because of you. The only thing in his mind.

"I can. Mostly." His frown increased when she tried to hide
ZKM-TraditionsKatara was excited and happy that she was finally going to the Southern Water Tribe. Not only had it been a long time and she was going for the holiday, but Zuko was with her. The last time her father and her boyfriend were in the same room, it was a short introduction and Katara was not dating the Fire Lord at that time.ZKM-Traditions in Humor More Like This
"Zuko, I should warn you, there are a few traditions my family will expect you to participate in."
"I'm fine with that Katara. I'm here for you and whatever you want or need me to do, I'll do it." He smiled.
"First thing, all the men going hunting to gather what food they can find and the women cook it."
"That doesn't seem so bad."
"It's all day, in the cold and ice and snow Zuko."

"Next, most of the guys will go out on boats and have some fun. Maybe do some tricks or ice dodging or whatever it is that men do. Sometimes, they're also a bit drunk." She frowned. "Don't get too drunk though."

She was still sleeping and he loved the way her body felt against his. If he could enjoy that a bit longer, he would do whatever he could.ZKM-Serenity in Romance More Like This
He started to hum a song as he ran his hand through her hair. He knew she would still be sleeping for a while after last night. Not to mention, she rose with the moon and he with the sun. Since the sun had already begun to rise, she would no doubt be sleeping for a long time.
"Zuko?" she asked, her eyes still closed.
"Don't you have a long day ahead of you? Shouldn't you start getting ready?"
He sighed. Yes, he had meetings to deal with all day today, like every other day, but he wanted to enjoy the peace he had. "I have time. I'm the Fire Lord. Nothing is going to happen without me there." He kissed her forehead. "I thought you were still sleeping. Did I wake you?"

"Dance with me," he whispered to her. He pulled her closer to him until he could feel her heartbeat. "You look amazing in that dress."
"Thank you." A small blush appeared under her mask.

"Zuko, I'm your wife Katara." She rolled her eyes.
"Shh. Remember, tonight we're strangers."
ZKM-SublimeThe first time he saw her bloodbend, he was mesmerized. How could someone, who appeared so weak, control a person the way she did? How was she able to do that in the first place? How did she learn that? In a short few months she had gone from hardly being able to do a simple waterbending trick to control a person. Impressive didn't even begin to describe it.ZKM-Sublime in Drama More Like This
To top it off, she was a powerful healer. He didn't ask for her to heal him, but she offered. Sometimes, like when he practiced with Aang or Sokka, she didn't ask, she just went up to him and healed him, mumbling something about 'stupid boys'. He didn't take the healing for granted, like Sokka did. He appreciated it and he didn't take stupid risks knowing she'd be there.
When the riots started, he was worried for her. He really shouldn't have been – she'd proven herself as a powerful bender several times over – but it was his nature to. Not to mention, she was the girlfriend to the Fire Lord and a water tribe citizen. Two things go
ZKM-SnowIt was dark and bitter cold, but he didn't feel it that much. He was a firebender and could heat himself up, if needed. Besides, this was the Southern Water Tribe, where it was supposed to be cold. He hated the cold, but he came for her. He saw her sitting in the snow on a cliff watching the night sky.ZKM-Snow in Romance More Like This
"Katara, aren't you cold?" he asked as he sat next to her.
"I've lived here my entire life. I'm used to it." She smiled. "I'm surprised to see you out here though."
"I came to sit with you."
"And the cold?"
"I'm a firebender. All we do is heat things up." He smirked.
"I guess that works, but for tonight, can you not heat anything up? Just enjoy the cold with me."
He nodded and turned his attention to the night sky, like she had. The stars were shining brilliantly, the moon was bright, and no clouds were in sight. Even if it was cold, it was beautiful out. Somehow better than the nights at the Fire Nation.
"It's beautiful Katara," he said as he put his arm around her to keep the both of t
ZKM-DemonsHe woke up in a sweat, his heart racing. It was just a dream. The same dream haunted him ever since Katara told him a month ago she was expecting. Sure, he was happy for his wife, but the fear kept him awake. Fire Lord Zuko, a father? Could he be a good father? The history of his family proved otherwise. He was kidding himself thinking she could marry and be a father. He shouldn't have done this to Katara.ZKM-Demons in Drama More Like This
Sighing, he placed his head in his heads. Everything was ruined because of him. If he hadn't fallen for Katara, he wouldn't have married her, he wouldn't have gotten her pregnant, and he wouldn't be worried about all of this.
Who was he kidding? He tried to not fall for her in the first place, but that didn't last long. He was head over heels in love with her. Everything reminded him of her. Especially the full moon that lit up their room.
He walked outside to their gardens to clear his mind. The turtleducks weren't in the pond as usual, but underneath a tree, sleeping. A slig
ZKM-LightIt was late and raining when Zuko was finally done with the day. He was exhausted. Meeting after meeting in a nonstop hassle for one thing or another. He wanted to feed the turtleducks, like he usually did, but with the rain, he doubted that would happen. That small time of peace and quiet and to himself was now ruined for the day. And on a day that he needed it the most.ZKM-Light in Romance More Like This
Still, he took the long way to his room towards the gardens to at least look outside. He was surprised to hear laughter coming from the gardens. Glancing outside, he saw Katara dancing around in the rain and laughing. It wasn't a small drizzle either. It was the full summer Fire Nation rain – pouring so hard, you could get soaked in two seconds.
She looked like she was having so much fun he had to join her, even if he was going to regret it in the morning. "Katara, what are you doing out here?"
"I'm having fun."
"I can see that. But it's raining. Why don't you come inside? Where it's dry. And warm. And not so dark."
ZKM-PrejudiceThe first time she saw him, he marched into her home and grabbed her Gran-Gran. She found him an arrogant, selfish brut – a perfect example of how the enemy was. His scar only showed how horrible and cruel the Fire Nation could be, even if she didn't know where it came from or how he got it. That didn't matter. What mattered was he was the enemy here to destroy everything she loved and held dear.ZKM-Prejudice in Romance More Like This
The next few times she saw him, she saw his incompetence. She might not have been that skilled, but even she was better than his failed attempt at capturing the Avatar. And this was their Prince? No wonder the Avatar "eluded" the Fire Nation for so long.
There were a few times over the next few months that she felt a little pity towards him and tried to help him. But that could have been because of his Uncle, who was a sweet old man, or maybe she was just emotional. Then in the caves under Ba Sing Se, she found she was being too harsh towards him. That she didn't know him as she once thought.

Grover looked up at me with determination in his eyes. He hunched over Annabeth, protecting her. She had a gash on her forehead and blood was trickling down her face. She looked at me helplessly.
"A-Annabeth?" I stuttered.
"Please, don't do this," she begged me. "You're not one of them. You're one of us, remember?"
I looked at them, horror on my face. "What have I done?" I whispered, sinking to my knees. I looked at my hands in disbelief and horror.
"Luke!" Percy fought against the guards, struggling. "Help us!"
Determination surged through me. I stood up quickly and spun around to face the oncoming guards, the alarms still ringing through the air.
"Get Annabeth out of here," I told Grover. He nodded and started helping her up. They ran out, and Percy tried to keep the guards distracted. I fought my way over to Percy, and we went back to back, facing the guards. We fought in

I froze. What had I done?
"Well, what are you waiting for? Finish them off!" the Captain commanded.
"Luke!" Percy yelled, fighting against the guards. He kicked one in the groin and the guard doubled over in pain, letting go of Percy's arm. Percy punched the other guard in the face and yanked his arm out of the guard's grasp. Percy ran toward me and pressed his lips against mine.
The gun slid out of my hand as I closed my eyes. This couldn't be real. Percy didn't like me back. Or did he?
I slid my arms around his waist and pulled him closer to me, kissing him back. Percy pulled away and looked at me with pleading eyes. "You're one of us, remember? You're not one of them. You're just a spy," he told me.
I nodded. I leaned in and kissed Percy quickly before letting go. I picked up the gun where I

“Hey Percy,” I said, walking to his side. Will walked past us to a demigod with her arm in a sling.
Percy’s green eyes sparkled as he sat up. “What’s up?”
It pained me to see him this way, lying down on an infirmary bed. The rest of the seven had been up and running for a while now, but Percy had been hurt the worst. After 6 days, he was still in bed.
Percy caught me looking and smiled. “Hey, I’ll be fine. I’d be running around the Camp right now if it weren’t for the fact that Will won’t let me.”
I smiled, though my heart wasn’t in it. “I know,” I said. I was still worried, no matter what Percy said.
I tried to change the subject. “We’ve gotten a bunch of the cabins rebuilt,” I said.
Percy laughed. “Yeah, A

"Percy, I really need to work on that speech. I have to finish it by tomorrow," I told him. I had had plenty of time to work on it when Reyna first asked me to do it, but I kept putting it off until the last moment. Now it was the last moment, and I still hadn't finished that speech.
Percy pouted. "Why can't you spend some time with me instead?"
"I have to finish it by tomorrow," I said, making my way to my bunk in the fifth cohort. I pulled open the door to my room and Percy stood in front of me stubbornly.
"Percy," I sighed. I tried to push past him, but he wrapped his arms around me and kissed me. "Percy," I protested, pushing him away. I tried to push past him again, but he just kissed me every time I tried. I attempted to duck under his arm and he grabbed me.
"Percy!" I yelled. He laughed and my fingers found his sides, tickling him. He squirmed, trying to get free of me.
"Stop it!" he yelped.
I laughed. "Not until you let me in."

Protect Me - Part 4
Mako was reluctant to leave Korra and Saki's sides at all, but had to after a while to return home, which was inevitable, and while Saki was able to leave after two more days at the clinic, healthy as could be, Korra was still considerably weak and needed more time to regain her lost strength.
The Firebender didn't want to separate Korra from the one comfort in her life then and couldn't bear to be away from Saki for any longer than a few hours, and so stayed there at the hospital (despite Tenzin's urging and Saiyu's annoyance), looking after the fussy baby while Korra slept, and joining in on admiring her when Korra was awake.
After two weeks passed, Korra was deemed strong enough to leave, but was ordered to refrain from participating in any strenuous physical activity. She may have gotten stronger, but she was not fully healed, and wouldn't be for a while.
Livings arrangements had to be sorted out. Tenzin was not willingly to allow Korra to move in with M

The Avatar didn't turn from her spot on the dock to look at the Firebender, instead hugging her arms around her tighter. Closing her eyes, she whispered, "Go away, Mako."
Mako stepped forward, signalling that he wasn't going to leave her out there alone. Placing a hand on her shoulder, he repeated himself, "What's wrong? What happened back there?"
Korra bit her lip. Just a few minutes before, she and Mako and Bolin had been sitting up in their attic apartment, going over and finalizing their plans for attack against Amon. They had been planning this ambush for weeks now, and they finally had everything little thing sorted out. It was foolproof nothing could go wrong. They were going to take Amon down, once and for all. But just as they were talking about the final battle with Amon himself, Korra had randomly up and left the brothers, confusing them and prompting Mako to go and confront her.
Biting her lip, Korra shook her head. She whispered something inau

Early Morning Pranks
Korra flew down the corridors of the Pro-Bending arena frantically, but it was no use she was already late. Arriving at the large, open gym doorway, she stopped abruptly and almost ran into the wood panelling.
She immediately smiled at the friendly voice that greeted her. Bolin the kind Earthbender that was always a great, invaluable friend to the Avatar. And the only thing that made those early morning practice bearable besides teasing the irritable Firebender along with his own younger brother. That also helped.
"Hey!" she looked up at him, regaining her breath and walking over to him, hiking her bag higher up on her shoulder. "Running a little late again... sorry."
"What else is new?" she heard the snarky, grumpy voice of Mako a few feet to her right and her face immediately fell at this quip.
"Nice to see you, too, Mister Hat Trick," she countered, dropping her bag beside Bolin. "Still grumpy, the usual, like me being

Mako shifted in his bed uncomfortably, kicking his thick blanket off a small portion of his lightly-clothed body, quickly regretting it afterwards as the cold, unforgiving air of the tundra nipped at his pale skin and filtered through the fabric of his clothing. He had been living in the South Pole for two months, and he still hadn't adjusted to the temperature of the place. At night, when the moon was high in the sky, he was usually at his coldest and so easily dressed in his thickest garments and retired to bed with his heavy blanket tucked around him. But as the night progressed into morning and the sun began to rise, his Firebending became more active and he heated up quickly, causing him to periodically dispose of different clothes each hour until he was left wearing virtually nothing, a sheet or something hanging loosely over his frame. But then he would wake in the morning and regret removing his clothes because despite how overheated he was during dawn, it was s

Another hour passed when Asami, Bolin, and the kids eagerly arrived. The children were already awake upon the pair arriving they were confused why they were being looked after by the sentries and not their parents. At hearing the news, they insisted they go and visit Korra like Tenzin had predicted to Asami instead of going back to sleep.
Upon arrival, the children began to ask Korra a bunch of questions, mostly "how much longer?". Korra laughed when they asked these questions she wanted an answer to them all, too.
Hour after painfully long hour passed, and each time Saiyu checked to see how much more dilated Korra was, it never seemed to go up. She was certainly dilated and it was definitely progressing, albeit excruciatingly slowly. The contractions grew so frequent and violent that Korra swore she was dying, and Mako did, too.
It wasn't until late that evening that it all started to happen. Korra was drifting off in between con

"How long will she need to stay here for?"
"The rest of the week she could start hemorrhaging again... it's completely unpredictable. She can return to the Island after that, but I'd like her to be kept under close watch. We can't have this happen again next time, she won't be so lucky. Also, Tenzin, I must inform you that because of this, the birth will be even more difficult. It could have similar effects to the degree of this anything could happen, but we'll do our best."
"I understand. Thank you, Saiyu."
Korra awoke to two voices conversing somewhere in the room she was in, one of them a familiar, gruff voice and the other a hushed, whispering tone. She kept her eyes closed, a headache splitting through her head, and heard footfalls as one of the two left the room. She suddenly heard more footsteps, some further away, pacing, frantic, quick. Some more then as someone approached her.
"Oh, Korra," she heard the familiar voice say, and

It happened in a split second that was suspended over what felt like a short eternity.
It was the night of the Championships, and much to their immense unhappiness, the Fire Ferrets were up against the Wolfbats. Korra wasn't afraid to face their leader hell, she wanted to be the one to knock him clear into the drink but she more than a little concerned for her teammates. She knew they could handle themselves, but even Mako was on an edge. He paced back and forth in the little preparation room, trying to calm and center himself, but he just couldn't seem to relax. The Avatar knew how much this match meant to him how much this victory meant to them all, so he couldn't afford to be a mess of nerves. And yet he had been.
Up until the one match, the team had trained mercilessly, honing their skills and connecting closely, becoming nearly unstoppable. And while the Wolfbats lacked the emotional connection they held, they certainly had the physical aspec

Korra peered at herself in the mirror, touching at the area that she knew that there was a fifty-fifty chance would be a bulging mass in just a few months. Swallowing nervously, she turned around and shook her head, trying to convince herself that it was not true.
That there wasn't the possibility that she was pregnant.
The idea had only just recently struck the Avatar after a month and a half of sudden, debilitating illness bouts. One second she would be fine, training away with the boys, and the next, she'd be rushing out of the gym to the bathroom. Mako and Bolin had been worried, but she had assured them that it was just a simple, passing sickness she'd be fine soon. And, sure, she got better - it just took too long for her comfort.
The week before, was when Korra really began to accept the possibility of it, dread flooding her veins. At one point, about three weeks ago, Asami and her had been hanging out when the non-bender had speculated if mayb

Mako laughed at what his girlfriend on the other line had said. There was just something he loved about Asami she could always put a smile on his face with her words. He was just about to open his mouth to respond to her when he heard a crash from behind him and he turned around to see the Avatar making her way up the set of stairs that served as the entrance to his apartment.
"Hey, Mako," she smiled at him, and he forgot about the phone in his hand, waving at her.
"Hey, Korra." He returned his smile, and she walked closer to him.
"Whatcha doing?" she asked him, for his head was obscuring the phone in his hand.
"Oh, uh, ya know, just relaxing," he shrugged, focussed upon Korra now instead of Asami. What could he say he liked Asami, but he also was quite enamoured with the Avatar. She was feisty and opinionated and drove him crazy, but her smiles and positive attitude were infectious she made him feel hopeful for the first time in years.

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
