We've been against the Capitol from the start. Out of everyone, I think District 11 has it the hardest and I'm not biased. Nobody will ever forget watching the death of Rue, one of our smallest but most hard-working workers, out there in the orchards. I remember the feeling of tears sliding down my cheeks as my family and I all sat, motionless in front of the television, watching Katniss Everdeen sing her to sleep that final time. Rue was my best friend. She was like a sister to me. And now she had been torn away from me by the sadistic cruelty of the Capitol. I would never let them live this down.
'What a shame we all became
Such fragile broken things
The memory remains
Just a tiny spark.'
We were inseparable. Rue and Milliena; Milliena and Rue. No second names because people from our District weren't permitted to have them. Rue shortened my name to Millie, although most of the time others called us Rue and Moo. Whatever it was we were doing,
I Will Become a Martyr (Peeta)Nobody can ever understand what it is like to be Reaped until it happens to you. The word in itself is capitalised out of respect, to show the importance of the occasion, the greatness of it. They might as well capitalise Death for all it is worth. There's always that suspicion in the back of your mind that it might be you - that shadowed cluster of terror that comes back to haunt you when you wake in the middle of the night as you pull yourself free of a nightmare; or when you find yourself contemplating the use of your very existance. What's the use of living? I have asked myself so many times. What's the use of even trying to make something of yourself when there's a chance I might be dead before my 18th birthday? The Capitol think we're stupid. They think we believe all our propaganda about how winning can change your life forever for the better. Watching all these old tapes of the previous Hunger Games makes me realise. Winning doesn't help you at all. In fact it makes it worse. II Will Become a Martyr (Peeta) in Short Stories More Like This
Rach's weird dream.. "Stark! Stark! C'mon Stark, get up!"Rach's weird dream.. in Short Stories More Like This
My eyes flashed open, yet all I could see was darkness. When I tried to move, I found that my body was unusually heavy, clad in something cold and smooth.
"Hang on a sec." A light suddenly unfolded itself above my eyes: a glowing sphere of brilliant white light that leaked its magic onto the walls around me. I was lying in some kind of stone chamber, with no walls or windows.
"The heck is happening?" My eyes swivelled to the right and saw Meg sitting there. She wore a strange red and blue Skyrim-style tunic with a white star emblazoned on the front, and was carrying a familiar looking shield. As she moved it more into the light, my suspicion was confirmed: she was holding Captain America's shield.
"What are you doing with that?" I said, "Meg, why are we here?"
"Don't you remember?" she said in a hushed whisper, "Loki duplicated your powers. Now come on, we have to get out of h

Bright, they see their own demise
Round, absorb such stirring surprise
Sea green, olive gold, ages old
I am proud of my eyes
I am proud of my hair
Streaks of darkness, streaks of fair
Shine out strong through sunlight glare
Desire fulfilled, hope rebuilt
I am proud of my hair
I am proud of my scars
Ivory screams on paler arms
Reminder of once being strong, the past
Marble bitter, dirty glitter
I am proud of my scars
I am proud of my tears
Wiping my mind of all of my fears
Cleansing my heart, grief disappears
Shining bright against the night
I am proud of my tears
I am proud of my heart
Twisted and olden and split apart
A beacon of hope against the dark
Scarred by pain, made old by rain
I am proud of my heart
I am proud of me
Come this far, and now I see
So close to being so very free
Fighter, hero, survivor, halo
I am proud of me.

Hide the scars
Smear them in dirt

Who would have thought a sobbing girl would change everything
Here where my name
A mysterious game
Played only by youth
Who don't seek the truth

There on the outside
Just where you could hide
A whole team of guns
Down goes the sun and
The young girl has changed everything but
There's someone else here
Take all this fear and
I feel the other guy
Holding his breath and I
There's another girl here who will change everything
Says she'll persuade me
But she's from SHIELD and she
Lies through her teeth
The darkness beneath
The anger is rising
The flames are crying
Vision turns green
The darkness beneath
The girl's fear changes everything
The roads are dark
Hide the scars
Smear them in dirt
No longer hurt
The girl changes everything.

Talking to the girl of his dreams
"But what I think she misses," he said

"And that, and that is killing me."
Heartbreak is a funny thing
Breaks and twists the broken things
Destroys a life, destroys a line
Destroys the girl, she says she's fine
"She's always there for you," he said
And those around him nod and smile
"She's always there for you," he said
"Yet she's been 'lone for quite a while
When no-one's looking, she cries, she cries
Heartbreak is a bitter crime
Can't be captured in words in lines
Guiltless, faultless, makes no sense
Tearing down all your defence
The girl is locked in whispers past
How long does this pain have to last
The future before her, seems so vast
Yet she's moving, and she moving fast
The current takes her away from this life
Dreams of one day being his wife
Dreams of him making her right

No, that's not the beginning of a simple love-story between a rosy cheeked girl and a snowflake-dappled boy; it's simply an observation; one made countless times at the beginning of all this, now never mentioned, because it's a given. In fact, the lack of snow would be most concerning; it always snows in Gotham these days. Although, when your days are numbered, it's no surprise that there's a frozen atmosphere to the city.
The things I thought I knew for certain in the first few days, weeks, are no longer certain to me. I thought my parents were still alive; and although they are still breathing, my mother barely moves. She simply huddles by her bedroom window, watching the slowly falling snowflakes. My Dad moves all right; but only when to change one bottle of whisky for another. If there is no whisky left, I am to go out and get some. If I don't go out and get some, I pay the price.

An ocean between us, but not that far off
The pink cherry leaves gleam pink in the light
And that's when I see them, watching the night
Two of them standing right by the cliff
Eyes wander vacantly, thoughts far adrift
Blue lightning between them, sealing their meeting
I throw out a word, my voice, a greeting.
I know that they hear me, one of them waves

Insecure now, salvation lingers

and their coupling
under the canopy
of weightless flesh
where love once disturbed their sleep
and her arms still ached enough
to break their fall.
For midnight will catch the floor
like it always does
the upwelling of her words
left bristling in the carpet
and send him spilling
in the dark
like blistered silk
setting sadly into the dawn -
just another memory
found missing in the morning.

"It'll be easy. You'll be back in no time." Tony paused a moment and blew his nose. He picked up his tea and took a sip. "I promised I'd make this right and I won't stop 'till you're happy."

"Yes." he nodded.

Loki finally came around and got up. "I guess I should feed him?" He asked.
"That would be wise." Jarvis chuckled.
Tony looked through the fridge, sniffling more. He sneezed and his head throbbed slightly from the sinus pressure.
“Sir, would you please lie down and allow me to make you a soup?”
“I can do it Jarvis!” Tony said angrily, though his throat was sore.
"No you can't." Loki said, coming into the kitchen. "Now lay down and let me cook for you."
Tony pouted at Loki upset but then went and shuffled back to the couch. He huffed and plopped down.
Chapter 56This was easier than he expected; maybe he could finish before four? Tony looked over the machine and redid some wires as well as replacing other parts before backing up for a moment. There wasn’t very much that needed to be fixed. The machine actually ran pretty well on its own, but Tony’s guess was that Fury wanted the software fixed. Machines could be replaced, files and documents couldn’t. So the inventor turned it on, let it run then got into the mainframe and started working his magic.Chapter 56 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Mega Man entered the training room and instantly spotted the famous green cap. He was about to call out before quickly realizing that the hat was a lot closer to the ground then he remembered.
“Link?” He called and the person trend. He did indeed look very much like the Hylian hero yet shorter, about Mega Man’s own height, and… chubbier, like he had de-aged about 10 years.
The two continued to watch each other before the blue hero’s thoughts clicked back.

The link leads to a story that I planned to be just about Marth, Ike, and Roy. It was of Marth coming to smash bros and how he felt. After the story I decided I like the idea so much I decided to do it for all the characters, and so this series was born!
Instead of copying and pasting I'm just gonna link you to this story. Please understand that it will be a little different and larger then the rest in this series.
I will be going back to the... previous formula if you will, so don't fret.
Also, I know on the SSB website it says Rosalina and Luma came first but if you go to the drop down list it says Marth came out on 11/07/2013 and Rosalina on 12/18/2013 so Marth came out first.

Oceans melded with hues of midnight blue, indigo. The thin, delicate fingers of the moon painted her azure canvas with silvery light, softening the menacing darkness. Billowing clouds threatened to engulf her and cease her artistic work altogether. Low rumbles of thunder vibrated the quiet, illuminated city below this celestial quarrel.
Yet, in the midst of struggle, all you saw was a dance.
A dance amongst the stars.
They twinkled. They sparkled. They glowed.
Yet they remained so still, fixated in their place, ignoring blackness surrounding them. They belonged to the light. What reason did they have to worry?

Slowly, it traveled down the pane until it landed in a small puddle. 1. 2. 3. 4. You counted each ripple until they overlapped into a blur.

His back slightly hunched, his face though stoic secreting a hint of sorrow, each key was pressed with deliberation. It was your favorite piece, so every note mattered.
