Her head was throbbing, her sense of orientation completely gone. Was she sitting? Lying down? Was her stomach inside her body or outside?
Damn, head hurts so bad.
"Does it cure...stupidity?"
"Wahaha!" the man's voice bellowed with a slap-slap. "If only wisdom could be granted so easily, I would give my tea away!"
A weak laugh managed its way from her mouth, hand grasping her stomach. She felt as if she had puked out all of her guts minutes earlier. Maybe her brain, too. That would explain a lot.
"I feel awful, Uncle Iroh," came the irritable groan as she bumped her head into what seemed to be a pillow. "How did I end up here?"
"If only I knew," Iroh chuckled. "I was inside serving my customers - you came from the back entrance."
"Give me tea or give me death!" impersonated a girl's voice from across the room. It sounded like that girl that worked at the tea shop. What was her name again...?
"I said that?"

A/N: With the Legend of Korra finally on air and us meeting new characters and new themes - many of which are actually lining up with stuff I already planned for SRU (go figure) - expect to be seeing more Korra stuff referenced within SRU context, where appropriate. As in the past, I'm obviously taking artistic liberation with characters to suit the purposes of a modern-day setting in which they all can co-exist. With that in mind, some more side-characters will show up that have some kind of role to play in what I have planned.

The lobby was desolate and depressingly quiet. The silence was unnerving to Toph as she squirmed in her uncomfortable seat in the corner. Her eyes hung heavy, and she'd nodded off a couple of times now. By this point she had no idea if it was midnight or 3am or...whatever.

"Exactly! It's Homecoming! I need to...I have to get ready for it."

Jane's eyes wandered to the side and she shrugged with apathy.
"Nah, I've, uhh...never been to somethin' like that..."
"Really?" Katara gasped as she tied her hair into a ponytail. "Are you serious?"
Jane's eyelids lowered as her olive orbs glared.
"Do I seem like the type who'd give a fuck about that kinda thing?" she grumbled.
"Er...N-no, I...I guess not," Katara conceded sheepishly. "But...You should totally come with us. Bring Johnny, we'll all go as a group! I'm sure he can get out of Freedom Fighter...stuff...to go to Homecoming with his lovely girlfriend."

I may start doing that - and consequently fix that when I inevitably go back and re-edit this whole story. Which reminds me - since a number of smaller details changed from when the story was conceived until now, if you notice any logistical inconsistencies, please feel free to point them out to me.

Their session complete, Toph sat idly for a few moments, listening to the thundering cacophony that was Suki slamming away at her drumset, just for fun. Hm. Playing a musical instrument...'just for fun.' The notion was amusing, and Toph could admit to herself that she'd lost sight of it some time ago.
Cymbals clashed at the end of Suki's solo jam, and Toph relished the reverberating sound as it vibrated through the air.
"So," said Suki simply, after the sound had settled. "You sounded good. I think we'll be ready."

By now, Toph and Sokka had made their way back to the table. The entire walk back had been a punch to Toph's gut, listening to the violin being played. She knew Douglas was on that stage, and just the thought of him wrenched her with uncertainty and regret. Not exactly what she needed right now.
Toph was glad to be seated, and immediately checked for her cane, which was still exactly where she'd left it at the foot of her seat.
"Man, where'd everyone go?" Sokka whimpered, glaring at the empty seats. He stood up and scanned the hall. Mai and Zuko were standing to the side of the dance floor snacking on crackers and vegetables, Azula and Ty-Lee beside them. Aang and Katara were on the dance floor, hands latched onto each other's hips. As the next song started up - slow and mellow - the pair began swaying to and fro. They rubbed noses and kissed on the lips. Blech.
Everyone - even his damned cousin, Korra - was all coupled up tonight.

It was awkward.
This familiar space - the smells of caffeinated drink and the sounds of idle chatter...only now there was a wash of calming pop music or something pouring from the speakers, a gentle background to all this. The Jasmine Dragon just didn't feel right in this way, from this place - on a chair at a table and not on that stage.
All the more difficult and confusing was the presence of Aang and Katara in this same location. Why were they here? This was here place. They weren't ever supposed to be here. Why had they agreed to meet here, of all places? And what was going on?
That last question, however, seemed to make itself apparent to Toph when the conversation started. Both Katara and Aang were speaking in hushed voices, seemingly fearful of how Toph would react.
Their fear didn't match her own, though.

The Divine Keeper of the Sapphire Flames turned around and looked at the two of you on his back.
“I can imagine carrying one of you, but two is a different story,” he snorted.
“What’s wrong with ___________ being carried on your back?” Mathias asked.
You frowned. “I think he was talking about you, Mathias, not me. I’m the one carrying Emil’s soul, remember?”
“Oh yeah,” Mathias said like the thought had completely escaped his mind. From the little time you had spent with him, you knew that forgetting would have been a complete possibility.
“What do you accomplish by returning to Eldur Mountain?” Lukas jumped in. “You know there could be dragons up there that won’t accept the fact that you aren’t able to return to your true form. They won’t be as lenient as I am.”

When you opened your eyes, it was already dark. You must’ve blacked out when Emil threw you.
“Emil!” you cried and shot up out of the water. Immediately, you stood up to start your search for the dragon, but a chill wind blew through your wet clothes freezing you to the bone.
“G-Gr-Great-t-t…” you shivered and sank back into the water. Now you knew why the servants back at the castle always said the nobles took a long time in the baths—it was too cold to want to come out, but you knew you had to get out eventually. Then again, how far would you make it with your messed up ankle?
Suddenly, a different wind blew at you but from above. When you looked up, you could distinctly see the shape of a blue dragon gliding down towards you. It must’ve been Lukas. He was going to be furious with you.

Your eye twitched.
“Where are you?”
“And my brother?"
He’s here. Just hang on. We’re coming, Emil.
“I’ll be waiting.”
When you opened your eyes again, you saw that the temperature dramatically decreased, and the winds began to cut through your clothes. Lukas was waiting for you staring at you the entire time.
“Well?” he spoke up. “Did you reach him?”
You nodded. “I was able to speak to him for a little bit, but it didn’t last for very long.”
“Did you learn anything?”
You frowned and shook your head. “I lost him before I could ask. I told him that you’re with me, though.

Lukas was the first one to speak up.
“That couldn’t be…” he whispered. “There were so many of us. I know the humans have said that my brother and I were the only dragons left in the world, but only five of us…How is that possible?”
“There were many reasons,” Berwald said, “but I think you know which ones were the biggest.” That being said, he looked over to Mathias who was still on his friend’s back.
“I don’t understand,” Lukas growled. “Why would they choose being a human over staying as a dragon?”
Berwald shrugged. “It’s just their choice. Maybe they had an awakening moment and decided being human was better. That or they just forgot somewhere along the way.”
Mathias jumped in. “What about Peter? He was so young. He has to still be around.”
The golden dragon shook his head sadly. “The hunters got to him nearly forty years ago.”

As expected, Lukas had woken up long before you did and caught breakfast. Today, breakfast consisted of yet another rabbit and a small bird whose species was beyond recognition thanks to having its feathers plucked and its skin already roasted.
"Lukas, you've always eaten in front of me as a dragon. Why are you having problems eating right now?" you asked.
The dragon rolled his sapphire eyes as though you had asked that question a thousand times over.
"I don't find it comfortable eating as a human," he confessed. "Besides, with the way I normally eat added with the things I eat, I would think you would find it unappealing to watch."
At least he has that consideration, you thought as you took your first bite of the bird.
While you were eating, Lukas looked over his shoulder.

Being used to his normally cold demeanor, you timidly fumbled your hands around in a nervous tangle and looked down at the ground.

There was still the debate of whether or not keeping your mouth shut was a good thing or not spinning inside your head.
There’s no way Lukas was really telling the truth when he said something like that, you thought to yourself. He’s got it all wrong, and besides, he’s a dragon. He couldn’t possibly know the significance of kissing another person—and a human at that.
You groaned and shuffled around in your spot. It had been an extremely long day. Lukas had said you would need all the rest you could get because there was no telling when you would be able to stop and take a break again.

Regardless of how preposterous it sounded, you had a feeling that you weren’t the only one who was thoroughly confused. All you could do was give a blank stare to Emil as he waited for you to say something. A question was a good start. A projection of your thoughts was good, too.
“I don’t understand,” you said.
Emil sighed and closed his eyes. It would have appeared that he had expected you to have a lack of knowledge—especially given that you tended to be slow during the course of your journey.
“I thought you would say something along those lines, ___________,” he said. He ran his hand through his soft white silvery hair. “I don’t know what my brother was thinking about before he died. That would mean that the flames are somewhere else.”

She wasn’t like the others. She understood me and took the time to do so. She got passed my horrible attitude and I could be more myself since she got passed the padlocks to my heart. I know that sounds girly and stupid but

I had been working at the Diamond estate for a long time now, four months. I loved it here. The owners never did tell me their real names but they wanted me to call them, Nanny and Pop-Pop since that’s what their grandson called them. I even had my own room here.
It was pretty big, if I might say. I had a queen size bed, a bathroom, bookshelf and a desk. Pretty big for a maid’s room. They never did treat me like one. They treated me like I was their own granddaughter. They were very nice and we often had many conversations.
Today I did my normal cleaning but then the doorbell rang. I went to answer it and it was a man. He had periwinkle colored hair and green eyes. “Hello there,” I said.
He shook his head and said, “Yes, hello.”
“Let him in, (Name). That’s our little James we told you about,” Nanny said.
“Yes, Ma’am,” I said. I stepped aside and bowed to him. “It’s nice to meet you.” I stood back

This is the monotone of the wind.

This is the bitter grind as chill sneaks in, sleeves are pulled down
Leaves curl, and my season unfolds.
Soon, the cold will bring amber and crimson.
The air will smell of sweet rot and Autumn.
Snail and Spider will seek shelter, sliding, scuttling into homes
Braving Humanity while we debate clothes, huddle in the shower at morn;
These are the days I remember. They define my month.
In some ways, these days define me. Perhaps all of us;
There is beauty in the slow tick of the watch -

The certainty of death. Of rebirth.
Maybe I'm a freak to notice such things. But this is truly the season
Of dying, of twilight before the dark,
And the thing to remember, as these slow days tick by us,
Is that each of these agonizing seconds must be loved. Filled

We had finally reached it. A deserted house in the mountain, it took about three hours on foot from the world summit place, but it was worth it. No one knows how long the house has been there, or who used to live in it. But rumors said that the house was... Haunted. Usually I wouldn't willingly go to a haunted place, but this time was the exception.
The only reason why I had come was because America wanted to go, but he, of course, was too afraid to go himself. The thought of it made me roll my eyes, he was such a chicken. I wasn't afraid of going to places like this, but I didn't really see a point to it. Really? What was the point in going to haunted abandoned houses? But none the less I went along with it. Of course the other countries were going to come with us. But I didn't understand why we all left at separate times. I mean, why didn't we all just leave together?
Though I was good friends with the Allies, I typically hung around with the Axis more. The

"So, what did you want to tell me, (Country)?" America asked.
"You still have a lot of strength left, right?"
"Yeah, I'm still a lot stronger then you guys." He grinned.
"In that case... Why don't you try being a hero?" I asked.
"Wow, that's an interesting idea, tell me more!" America said sarcastically. I rolled my eyes, the guy needs to learn to be a little more serious.
-Flash back from America's point of view before you guys came running in.-
"As I thought, I can't use my power!" England said frustrated. I stared at the ground.
"You can stop the thing for two seconds if you summon all your magic power, right?" I asked him quickly.
"Sh-shut up! Don't make that sullen face like (country) did!" He snapped,"You don't really believe me do you?! You think I'm strange-"
"So? Can't you try doing a little better then that?"

Japan and I walked into the, now unlocked, room. Bookshelves were lined up around the room, stocked with hundreds of different books. In the middle of a room sat a large wooden desk with papers stacked on it neatly, along with a book or two. Japan and I stood there by the corner, near the door, looking the room over. My eyes froze dead in front of me. That weird creature that resembled an alien was walking around the room. I pulled Japan back before he could be spotted by the creature.
"Wha-" I put my hand over his mouth, so he wouldn't blow our cover, and pointed in the direction of the creature. He nodded in understanding and pulled my hand away from his mouth gently. When the creature was out of sight, Japan and I snuck quickly over behind one of the bookshelves. I scanned the area, trying to pinpoint where the creature was. But there was no Trace of it. Where could it have gone? Were we all really just seeing things?
"It's gone..." I whispered to Japan. We stra

"Bullshit! Why the hell does it have to be you? You've gotta be Kidding me!" Lovino screeched. I sighed, rolling my eyes. Why is he Making such a big deal about this?
"T-that's why I'm saying that I should be with Germany....." Feliciano stuttered, trying his best not to get any farther then he was with arguing with his brother.
"Wait, you've gotta be kidding me! I object!!" Ludwig shouted, really dude? Really? What is the big deal!? It's not like deciding which side of the war we're going to be on, dang!
"Will you guys please stop making such a big production out of this!? I swear!" I scolded, glaring at the arguing group in front of me.
Kiku sighed,"I'm sorry for calling you back, but as you can see (Country) and I can't handle this alone..." Gilbert walked over to Kiku, standing beside him. He was clearly confused about why everyone was arguing.

"We're back~" I sang as we walked through the door. Germany looked over to us, and then continued to do, whatever it was, he was doing. Italy stood there by the kitchen with a blank look on his face while Romano was working with China and France in the kitchen. Probably taking over because he thought their food wasn't going to taste good at all. Japan walked over to Italy cautiously.
"We're back now.. Italy." He said. Italy spun around to face him.
"Um... W-Welcome back...Japan." Italy stuttered nervously. I sighed, even though Italy woke up, he hardly remember anything... I guess it's better this way though... It's better he remember us just a little, rather then not at all. I walked over to the two and smiled at Italy.
"Hey Italy~!" I grinned,"How are you?"
"I'm fine... Thank you for asking, (Country)." Italy shot me back a tiny smile. He seemed to remember enough to know that I was one of the nicer country's around. Though our countries did h

"That idiot... I didn't know he could be that stupid. " Romano hissed, though I couldn't see him all that well I could tell that he was angry.
"What, you already get what's going on? All we told you is that Italy locked us up and left on his own..." France was clearly confused on how Romano already knew the majority of what was going on. But, of course, I still had a pretty good idea why he knew. Romano was also Italy, so there was a possibility anything Italy knew, Romano knew as well.
"Yeah, I don't really get it either, but it looks like he shares some memories with Ita." Spain said laughing nervously. For some reason my chest began to ache... Something bad was going to happen...
"What? Does that mean he understands the situation better then we do?" Canada asked.
"Spain! Did you find anything to help get me down?!" Romano shouted annoyed with the pointless chatter.
"Oh... I forgot." Spain rubbed his head

I yawned, it was still early from what I could tell, and I still wasn't fully awake. Italy woke me up saying that breakfast was ready and if I didn't get up my food was going to get cold and America was going to eat it. So, of course, I had to get out of bed quickly and run over to the table to protect the food waiting for me. Everyone else was already awake, and full of energy. Maybe it's because of my injuries that I had slept more then the others? Then again, even back in the outside world I always use to sleep till late in the afternoon.
"Well. Everyone has rested, so can we begin our conference now?" Germany asked loudly so everyone could hear him. I yawned again, taking a bite of the food Italy had made. It tasted delicious, but that was to be expected from Italy's cooking. If it were England's... Then it would be a totally different story. Everyone else had already finished eating.

The six of us stood there in front of the large mansion. Wow, this place is really old! I mean just look at it, even vines are starting to grow on it! England stood there silently, something about him made me think that he was angry that I had dragged them all out here in the middle of no where. Hey, if they didn't want to come along, they could of just said no.
"It's really here!" I heard China say in surprise.
"I-I thought it was just a rumor... But it's actually here." England stuttered. Awww, was the Brit already going to start chickening out? Haha, looks like the hero is going to have to protect the Brit today~!
"The desolate feel gives it a rather... Nice touch, vous ne trouvez pas?" France asked. I stared at him blankly. The dude should know the only one, that probably would have a clue what he just said, was Canada and Canada isn't even here. Why couldn't the Frenchie just speak English??

When Italy and I made it to the small room where the safe was, the others were already there. They all stared at me and Italy.
"Did something happen? What's wrong with (Country)?" Japan asked, walking over to us. Italy allowed Japan to take his place. Italy joined Germany over by the safe.
"I'm fine Japan, I'm just tired, that's all." Japan stared at me, but nodded. I wanted to tell him what I had heard Italy say... But from what I could tell, Italy was afraid... He didn't want anyone else to know about whatever it was.
"Got it." Germany said, the safe wide open.
"A key." Italy said in surprise. Was Italy just putting on a act this whole time? Did he know that Prussia was going to go missing that night...? The thought made me want to slap him. If Italy knew, he could of told me. But he couldn't have known, right? All of this couldn't have been planned...
"It looks like a key to a study of some sort." England observed.

As soon as Japan and I were on the second floor, which took a bit longer then expected, mostly due to my head injury, we began to search for the bedroom that the key unlocked. It took us awhile, but once we found the right door we were surprised to see that Prussia was waiting for us on the other side.
"Huh?! Who's there?!" Prussia turned around, with his sword out and ready. Once Prussia saw us I could tell he was relieved that it was us and not that creature, he put his sword away. Prussia stared at us and then looked back at the closed door. The key was still in my hand.
"Could you please Lock the door?" Prussia asked in a fearful tone, I did as he asked. As soon as the door was locked Prussia relaxed. Japan and I walked into the center of the room, Prussia met us half way.
"Glad we finally found you." I said with a weak smile,"We already found Germany, he was beginning to worry about you. He's on the same floor, but he used the excuse that h

Life and Death 4Complete silence filled the room as the entirety of the words that just came out of my mouth sunk into the brains of my friends. If I wasn't so nervous about their reactions, I would've laughed at their dumbfounded expressions. They all gaped at me with my wide eyes and mouths hanging open, blinking rapidly as the wheels turned in their heads to process the information, all except for Patty whose eyes had glazed over a long time ago. I doubt that she had even heard a word that I had said through her daydreaming. I sweatdropped as I waited patiently for somebody to speak first, hoping that their next words would be positive.Life and Death 4 in Short Stories More Like This
Soul decided that he would break the silence on his own. "The daughter of Life, huh?" he said, closing his crimson eyes and running a hand through his white hair. When he opened them again, he met my gaze and asked, "What exactly does that mean?"
I calmly walked back to the couch they were still sitting on and picked up my deserted photo album. Turning to the very b
Life and Death 3"Oooh, look at this one!" Maka squealed excitedly while pointing to another photograph in the album. It depicted me and Kid at age 5 holding two balloons in each hand, smiling broadly with our faces painted in bright colors and a giant ferris wheel towering the background.Life and Death 3 in Short Stories More Like This
"Oh yeah, I remember that. We went to the carnival one summer and Kid practically had to threaten the balloon guy to give each of us two of them. There had to be one in each hand for symmetry, of course," I proclaimed while pointing a finger of authority in the air. Everybody bit their bottom lip and put a hand over their mouths to try to contain their snickers.
"And then there was the face paint issue," I continued. "He sat in the chair for hours and made the poor woman do it over and over again until she got it perfectly symmetrical," I explained. Unable to hold it back any longer, we all burst out laughing, holding our stomachs as it grew more intense.
As I wiped tears from my eyes, I smiled at my friends. I was h
Life and Death 10"So, how did it go?" Kid asked curiously as we walked down the hallway of the DWMA towards Stein's lab. Kid and I had agreed to meet with the crazy proffesor so he could give us a debriefing of the assignment at the same time, which we would then pass on to our weapons on the way. Since we were short on time, this seemed to be the easiest course of action.Life and Death 10 in Short Stories More Like This
I shrugged in response to Kid's question. "Some words were .exchanged, but we came to an overall decision. They knew that I wasn't the type to sit around and act like a helpless little girl."
"Hm, well they seem to know you pretty well, then."
"Yeah, we've gotten pretty close over the years. I couldn't have asked for better partners," I replied with a slight smile as we rounded a corner.
"So which part were they unhappy about? The fact that you want o go on some crazy adventure that might just leave you on your deathbed, or the fact that you're doing it with me?"
I pushed my bangs out of my face as I thought of my reply. "A litt
Life and Death 11"Alright, this seems to be the place," I said as I glanced down at the piece of paper in my palm for confirmation. No doubt, the address was the same on this sign in front of me, so Damien Archer had to be here. We had made the trip all the way down to Australia just to meet this one person who could save my life, so if he wasn't here, it would be disappointing to say the least. The slip of paper made a crinkling sound as it was crushed into my clenched fist. If this didn't work, it was doubtful that there would be any other options.

"Rai, are you okay?" Kid said as he placed a hand on my good shoulder.
My hand relaxed instantly. "Yeah, I'm fine," I assured him as I waved my hand in front of my face dramatically. "It's just so hot out here."
"Oh, sorry about that!"
"Shut up, Derek."
"Hey sis, do you think this guy will have any ice cream? Patty screams for ice cream!" Patty shouted as she twirled in place gleefully.

Life and Death 13"C'mon, just a little bit further," I mumbled as I attempted yet again to slide my hands out of the handcuffs that kept me restrained on the stone table. I folded my fingers inward and pulled desperately against the cold metal until my hand turned white from the cut off of blood circulation. Because of the restraints, I couldn't lift my head up far enough to see my legs very well, but I could tell from a few halfhearted kicks that those cuffs weren't going to be any easier.Life and Death 13 in Short Stories More Like This
My head dropped to the table as I sighed at my own helplessness. Why didn't I stay and train with my mother a little longer? I'm supposed to be a freakin goddess and I can't even get out of these goddamn handcuffs; how in the hell am I going to take responsibility of giving life to an actual human being? That is if I ever do live that long.
As I was reminded of my circumstances, my eyes traced the rash from the venom which was now fully covering my stomach and was creeping slowly up to my chest. It wouldn't be

"What are you doing here? The last time I saw you was 10 years ago." He asked as he turned to face us. I just couldn't take it anymore! I ran over and glomped him like I had never glomped any human being before.
"I came to attend the DWMA and see you, silly!" I exclaimed with my arms around him. I was so happy to see him, that when I didn't feel him return the hug, I let go to look at him. His golden eyes were still wide with shock, but he still tried to be polite, ever the gentleman.
"Really? That's great. I didn't know you were a meister."
"Yeah, who woulda thought, right?" I said as I played with a strand of my orange hair. "I've been wanting to come here for years, but I just needed a little training first." I perked up, as I remembered by partners.

I straightened up professionally at his question and nodded firmly. "Yes, sir. We've gotten plenty of rest over the past few days and now we're more than ready for the assignment." Derek and Mason nodded in agreement at my sides.
"Okie dokie then! I'll fill you three in on what's going on!" he exclaimed, clapping his giant hands together. "You see, there is a Kishin egg that's causing trouble down in South America. We've tracked his whereabouts to Bolivia and now we're waiting for the right team to send to take him out."
"And that's us, right?" Derek cheered, pumping a fist in the air at the challenge. Mason rolled his eyes at his brother's enthusiasm, but I could see the look in his eyes that longed for action. He just wasn't as verbal about things as his older brother.

"Geez, I just want to look at it, Rai. We need to make sure it's not too serious."
"It's fine," I assured him, sighing heavily. I didn't want to put too much emphasis on the wound I took to my shoulder during the battle with the Kishin. I didn't want to remind everybody that I slipped up, made a mistake. I didn't get a good look at it, but it was probably just a scratch. And now as I was sitting on one of the beds in the DWMA infirmary that Derek and Mason made me go to, everything seemed to get on my nerves. I didn't even want to mention the dull ache in my shoulder, or else they would definitely freak out. It really wasn't that bad, I just wanted to grab some Advil at home and go to bed.
"Look, I'm tired from the mission, guys. Can't we just go home?" I whined as I attempted to jump down from the bed. Before I could do so, Mason put a hand on my good shoulde

Maka and Tsubaki walked in a circle around me and scrutinized me carefully at every angle while Patty observed from a nerby chair, absentmindedly licking an ice cream cone she had purchased earlier. "Why not, Rai? It has nice shape, comfortable fabric, and the color's not too bad either," Maka offered as she put her hands on her hips and nodded in approval.
I made a face as I turned my back on the mirrors and looked her in the eye. "Maka, I look like I'm about to get married."
Silence hung in the air until Maka and Tsubaki burst out laughing, breaking the awkward silence. Tsubaki grabbed a handful of the monstrosity of a dress that I was wearing. "Maybe, you're right; it is a little much for a simple party isn't it?"
Patty giggled and began humming the 'Here Comes the Bride' theme while I shot her an exasperated look. "I don't see what's so funny," I huffed as I turned my head and
