You brace yourself for impact.
But it doesn’t come.
You feel something catch you, slowing down the pace of your fall. You slowly open your eyes, daring to relax.
The wind whirls around your feet and shins, providing a cushion between you and the hard ground.
It slowly sets you down, your feet softly making contact with the earthen floor.
It leaves your feet and swirls up and around you in a single, long, invisible line, making you giggle as your clothes dance slightly from the wind. You’re reminded of a cat’s tail wrapping around its owner’s leg as it purrs, longing to be pet and loved.
It leaves the rest of your body and rubs against your cheek, feeling very much like a delicate hand resting on your face in a final farewell. Then, it departs.
Thank you, you call after it, still smi

He laughs lightly and plops down from his place on the windowsill.
“That’s right, ‘Jack,’” he says as he walks up to you, stopping less than a foot away from you. His eyes never leave you.
You look at him searchingly, still not entirely convinced that he’s standing before you, seeming to have somehow remembered you…
“Jack…” you finally manage to say in a small, quiet voice.
His mischievous smirk turns into a soft smile. He nods gently.
The next thing you know, his arms are wrapped around you in a tight embrace, his head bowed and past your own as he envelops you in himself.
“You idiot,” he sighs. His voice is trembling slightly as he fights back emotion. “Letting them do that to me. To us. Never again.&

You have no idea what to do.
Another Nightmare manifests from the dark, joining its companion at the window.
You can’t let the Nightmares make it back to Pitch and tell him of the Guardians’ compromised statuses.
But you can’t call out to Jack or Sandy, not wanting to alert them, either.
Plus, calling out would confuse the living daylights out of Jack, doing who-knows-what-kind of damage to him.
So you just stand there, completely immobile, staring at the Nightmares’ dark forms hovering by the window. They begin to clop their hooves on the air.
They’re getting ready to leave.
Come on, turn around, you think, hoping that somehow the Guardian or winter spirit will hear your projected thoughts.
It seems to work.
Jack takes notice of the being closest to him and whirls around. The Nightmares nei

Tooth glances over her shoulder at Jamie’s bedroom window.
“I should get going,” she says nervously as she backs up a little.
“Hmm? Oh, oh yeah! Just…one last thing,” you say. “Is it possible for his mind to have forgotten me, yet the memories still existing somewhere deep in his mind? Buried away, in a sense?”
She shakes her head. “I completely removed all memories of you. There are none hidden away in the depths of his mind, so there’s no chance of memories all of a sudden resurfacing without some extreme prompting.”
You sigh. This information is bittersweet.
“But,” she continues, “there is a chance that the heart can remember what the mind can’t. Kind of like how he will retain the growth and lessons he learned while wi

“Has anyone seen _______________ around? The laundry’s not done.” Florence haughtily asks. Berenice chokes on her toast, but Stepmother Tooth and Florence don’t turn their head towards her even in the merest concern.
“The laundry? Where in heaven’s name could she be? She always does the laundry, doesn’t she?” Stepmother snaps out.
“That’s what I’m telling you, Mother dearest, she’s not there.”
“Strange….” Stepmother muses, stabbing at her boiled egg with a blunt edged silver fork. The pale whites pop simultaneously and run down the side of her blue-and-white striped egg cup. “Very strange
Cold War: Rebel, RevelYou find the bar into complete craziness. And when you mean crazy, it is over the top, full to the brimming, chaos. Dancers are hurriedly dressing in their slinky dance gowns, some brushing their makeup on as quickly as a wink, and some shrieking that they can't find their earrings or jewelry. Honestly.Cold War: Rebel, Revel in Romance More Like This
But there's desperation in the air. All the dancers are jumpy and rather nervous.
Tooth bangs open the door, mouth white as a ghost, her usually gorgeous hair now in utter shambles, and her eyes are red with crying.
"What happened?!" Some girls cry out.
“Oh, it’s….it’s too…horrible!” Tooth manages, and then bursts out in a wave of tears. A few dancers help her settle down, and one gives her a handkerchief.
Tooth settles down for a few seconds, then cries, “Jack’s dead!”
“WHAT?!” all the dancers scream out. “How?! When?!”
She dries the very corners of her pale amethyst violet (now red tipped) eyes
Cold War: Troubled NightsYou lie on the side of the plushy squishy side of the bed, spreading your hand over the creamy custard sheets. You had come so darn close to hit Pitch- which was the least option of your attacks; your first one was to involve a flame thrower and your trusty little pearl handled gun.Cold War: Troubled Nights in Romance More Like This
Tooth had pushed you into the backstage and instantly forced you to change out of your black bow dress, and wash all the attractive makeup from your face. Once you were in your fleecy nightgown, she ordered you to go to bed. So here you were, stuck by design, made famous by mistake. You roll over and turn the lamp off, hearing the soft click as darkness plunged into the light room.
As soon as your eyelids covered your irises, you plunge into a deep and frightening dream, where your brother was calling out to you, but you had no idea where he was, only his voice was so frustratingly close. You hear Pitch’s wicked chuckle slithering through your eardrums, and you spin on the spot, drawing your gun
Cold War: Mi amourThe next day, everything was back to normal, Tooth being leader of the dance group once more, and you sliding into the shadows of the bar. The only conflict that you had against yourself was that nasty snide insults were taking place behind Tooth’s back, whispering that she should step aside for you.Cold War: Mi amour in Romance More Like This
Tooth isn’t stupid or shallow, so she knows what’s going on with the audience. But she has become rather cold towards you, which makes you all the more nervous.
Not that you needed all of this stress. Oh, you already had a cold shouldered Tooth, an awkward Jack, and a hard management of your new salary, what else could possibly go wrong?
Pitch Black had started to take a creepy liking towards you, starting out slowly from Monday night. He flirted with you, toasted off glasses of champagne to you.
“I’d be happy to be your partner, _________.” He had said a twisted smirk on his frightening face. “And maybe your future employer.”
Cold War: Curiouser and curiouserJolting awake, you muffle your screams into the blankets, balling up the soft silken fabrics into your hands.

It's the early hours of dawn, and the sun just peeks its head up above the hills, it's first rays about to touch the tops of the reflective skyscraper city. The guests have all been taken to their guest rooms to sleep for the night, because they want to see how your relationship with Pitch turns out.
You, now being unable to sleep, pull on the beaded crystal lamplight, illuminating your wide open room. You see your elegantly carved bedposts, twirling like fresh forest vines up until about 10 feet, stretching out in a wide canopy that shields you from prying eyes. The wardrobe, which is pure cherry wood, is glossed in cleanliness, dusted and polished every day by the maids. The alabaster tiled floor swirls underneath, creamy swirls
Cold War: We'll Meet Again He looks absolutely staggered, caught off guard. A million memories zoom by his eyelids, flashbacking on many moments before the two of you met in an accidental plane crash. Some of the secretaries goggle at your face, on the face that they’ve adored, seen plastered all over newspapers, the face they insulted all the while.Cold War: We'll Meet Again in Romance More Like This
Amelia has gone as white as a sheet, pressing her slim hand to her heart, and it seems like she’s hyperventilating. The cardinal hat doesn’t help matters, compared to her bone white cheeks; it looks like she has a mountain of small blood dripped roses perched on her head.
“I know,” you say, a smile curling on your face. “It’s pretty darn surprising if you think about it

You sit down in your small wooden rocker (bought and paid for with your own money) beside the small portal of a window looking down on the spick and span streets. You close your eyes and you sweep all the clutter of her conscious thoughts from your mind. It’s like sweeping a dusty floor that hasn’t been mopped up in a month, and has just been set up for a speakeasy New Year’s party: tons of glitter confetti from speakeasy parties past. Little spills of alcohol splotching the tiles like blood. The sweeping piles of opium ash from cigarettes. Sparkling jewelry left behind, or maybe even a lone dancing shoe. Lift the rug of your subconscious and sweep the dirt under. Good-bye.
“____________________! Serve us breakfast!”
Cold War: Dance AwayThe floor looks unrecognizable, without its usual spills and smell of dry alcohol. Instead, it has been mopped up several times and now people in fancy clothes were dancing around it. Silver tight corsets, skin tight dresses, pretty fans with ivory sticks, tight black bowties, and the stench of opium smoke…it was almost too much to bear.Cold War: Dance Away in Romance More Like This
Some of the women in the bar no longer had any furs or wraps that you saw when you first came into the bar. Now you see that they abandoned the look to be elegant, and instead went for provocative. The men were nearly overwhelmed at how many beautiful women were in the bar. Tooth, in a shimmering green grass dress that swirled around her willowy legs, always attracted popping eyes and interested minds. But none of them compared to how much stares you got, still in your sleazy striptease black dress. You could feel eyes boring into your back and face, and hoped that the dance would be over so you could change.
Jack must have felt their stares too

You hear a guttural, primitive scream.
You smile in your dreamlike stance. Jack was still caring for you, however much he was in trouble.
"No! _____________, ________________, please, wake up, wake UP!" His frantic voice drifts through your stupor.
Here he screams again.
"What did you do to her? Hasn't she suffered enough!?"
"She's alive," Vermilion's voice rings out, clear as a brass bronze bell on Sunday morning. "But only just. You have 1 minute to save her. Good luck, handsome," she replies with a definite wink on her face.
"Tooth! Pitch! I need help here!"
Hurried steps are vibrated through the floorboards and tiles, some of them tottering high ones, other tramping ugly ones that stomped on each floor tile.
Pitch's smooth voice cuts through Jack's mental breakdown.

"What?" you asked curiously. You stared at the other guardians and they all have the same look on their faces.
"What?" you said sounded a little irritated this time. You looked at yourself and you're still fine. Their stares creep you out like something's odd about you.
"Oh no…" you thought and touched your head and sighed in relief, "I thought I have horns or something…" you thought, "Why do they look so shocked?"
Suddenly the young guardian gave you a small mirror nervously and you took it, feeling puzzled. "Look in the mirror…" whispered the young guardian and you obeyed.
Your mouth was wide opened because of what you saw and you rather have a good reason. Your eyes turned light blue like Jack Frost's and your (long hair and/short hair grew and) turned silver white.
You touched your face and hair gently and smiled sweetly. "I'm the winter spirit's wife after all…" you whispered and glanced at the young guardian. "Right?"

You're in a room where the yetis are preparing you for your wedding. The Tooth fairy helped surprisingly and happily as she put the long, white, silk-like texture veil, with flower diamonds on top, on your head that drops down to your back and onto the floor. You stared at yourself in front of the mirror and grinned; You're wearing your white, sparkling , dashing, long wedding dress and as you looked down, you can't see your silver-white sandals for its covered with the cloth of your magnificent gown.
"You look beautiful, (F/n)…" Said Tooth heartily and brushed your long white hair and added, "Jack is such a lucky boy…"
You turned and glance at the Tooth fairy, "I don't really know…" you said with a grin, "I think I'm the lucky one."
Tooth smiled and suddenly the door opened. Both of you turned and looked who's entering the room. It's North, wearing a red tux, shooting a big smile at you. You grinned back politely and walked to him

"What's taking them so long?" North said while walking across the room and looked at the clock and noticed that you and Jack are three minutes late.
Suddenly the magic portal opens and North's face enlightened and he felt excited.
"Positions everybody!" He yelled with his Russian accent.
The Sandman got woken up, alarmed and looked at the leader while saying something above his head using his dream dust.
"Jack's coming." North said excitedly and the Tooth fairy's lips twisted into a rare smile and one of her forms fainted but the thing is, she doesn't know that you're with the young guardian.
She started to give instruction to her forms nervously and after a minute or two Jack went out of the portal.
He crawled out of the sack feeling giddy. He shook his head and quickly and grabbed his wooden staff and turned to the portal, preparing to catch you.
"Who's in the other bag?" Tooth asked herself feeling confused when she saw Jack caught it and put it down

Jack Frost carried you bride style while both of you flew away from the others. You giggled silently when you saw your fellow guardians fighting the mild but a bit irritated snow storm that the young guardian made. Staring at him, the winter spirit gave you his playful smile and chuckled.
"I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye to them!" you yelled furiously, "And you didn't give me a warning!" You added.
"Goodbyes?" said Jack with a smirk, "I don't like goodbyes." He added.
"Well, well, let's see. Saying goodbye or leaving without saying a word?" you asked and waited for him to respond and he said, "The second one." With an evil laugh.
You punched him lightly on the shoulder and after a minute or two, he landed and and stood you up gently. You looked around and noticed that you're in the middle of nowhere.
"Again?" you said indignantly and crossed your arms. Jack laughed and pinched your nose. You shook your head and rubbed your frigid nose.

North's talked privately with the young guardian in his workplace while you and the other guardians are in the living room while they're asking you questions about how did you do survive the accident ten years ago.
"I'm so glad you're alright, mate!" The Easter Bunny said with a cheeky smile.
"We… we all thought that you're already… well… gone." Said Bunnymund with his lonely face but smiled after. "But we're so glad you came back, mate."
You chuckled and played with your hands, "Well, I terribly sorry for the troubles I'd made…" you said shyly without looking at the other guardians.
Then the Sandman stood in front of you and started to draw images on his head, "What?" you asked and felt awkward.
"She can't understand Sandy…" Tooth said with a grin. "Honestly… no one can." She added and all of you laughed.
Sandy burst dream dust from his ears and his face became deep red. "I- I'm sorry Sandy." You said with a li

"What have you done?" said Jack with a bit of fear in his voice.
You lifted your weapon and pointed at the winter spirit. "Now you…" you said coldly.
"Please…." Jack begged but you still continued to walk towards him. "This is not you." he added.
Jack stared at you as you walk to him. You attacked him but he gripped your weapons and didn't care even if he's wounded.
"I don't care…" you said coldly.
You looked at the blood on your gloves and suddenly your eyes widened and looked at the young guardian. Jack's staff and you gloves glowed and made you think.

Winter storms hit all over the world since Jack Frost died. You're in the middle of the snow forest back in the North pole making a rampage. You tried to kill yourself but your body won't let you. You shouted so loud that the whole place rumbled and birds flew away.
You flew at the top of a mountain away from North's and cried yourself out for two long cold days. You pulled your hair hard and keep punching the ground. You can't take off your gloves and you don't know why.
You're screaming the young guardian's name and begged him to come back. Suddenly somebody touched your shoulders and you quickly pointed your weapons at him/her.
"It's just me…" Bunnymund heartily. You put your weapons down and the Easter Bunny hugged you tightly. "North wants you to come over." He added.

"Where is she?" he asked again. "And what happened in here?"
North breathed deeply and sat on his bed and stared at the worried winter spirit. "She… she went to Pitch." He said with a low voice.
Jack's eyes widened and his mouth was half opened. He glanced each of them and realized that North's telling the truth.

You tried to unchain yourself but it's not just an original chain. It's made of a dark sand that probably from the Nightmare King.
You stopped and glanced at the Bogeyman. "Bring Jack Frost back!" you yelled furiously and Pitch uttered an evil laugh.
"Of course, of course!" he said joyfully and looked at you. "That's easy… but…" he said and grinned peculiarly at you, "I need something in return…" he added.

All of the guardians got surprised about Jack Frost's new look. North keep looking at the young guardian's hair since he arrived and the Tooth fairy keeps blushing while looking at the good-looking winter spirit.
"Will yah all stop?" Jack said furiously. Bunnymund can't say any tease to the young guardian's appearance. He just stood there with his arms crossed while staring at the winter spirit.
"What's with the hair mate?" The Easter Bunny asked serenely.
"I just met my girlfriend's parents so (F/n) did some… arrangements." The young guardian said while looking at the man in the red suit circling him.
The Tooth fairy and her forms as well, got mad in the inside upon hearing what Jack called you. Her face became red because of anger but she tries to put herself together.
