30DD: Restless - Lolly and Conner"Stop moving Conner,"
He groaned and shifted his weight again. His right leg was going numb. "I can't."
She sighed and opened her grey-blue eyes, fixing him with a gentle, reproachful stare. "If you can stay absolutely still while you're on a mission, I think you can stay still for half an hour of meditation."
"Lolly," he said dryly, "I'm doing missions for a purpose, to...to help save the world!"
She fixed him with a look and cupped his still sixteen-year-old face. "Meditation will help you to save yourself," she said seriously, all humour gone from her voice. He softened slightly, blinking at her.
"Okay," he said, suddenly feeling very small.
"Don't worry Conner," she replied, adjusting her own legs, "You'll get the hang of this no sweat."
Somehow he doubted that, as he crossed his legs again and wondered if it was really necessary that he meditate without a shirt on.
30DD: Formal - Alex and VetaShe was impossibly light on her feet he decided. The way she floated around him was effortless and he was desperately trying to keep up.
"Alexei," she sighed as they spun across the dance floor, "You have to hold my waist tighter,"
He nodded, wrapping his hand more firmly around the soft material of her dress, pulling her closer to him. "Better Veta?"
"Much," she replied, her painted lips smiling slightly at him. He laughed and they danced past Raja, who was talking intently with Theo. Veta winked at her friend before turning back to Alex.
"You know," she said as the song ended, "This is your first New Year's at the Institute."
Alex snorted and lowered their hands, though he kept a hand on her waist. "I do know Veta. I've been here nearly three months," he added, kissing her forehead.
The Russian girl rolled her eyes and reached around her back for his hand. "Come with me Alexei."
"I know almost every place in this Institute," he began, but the corridors suddenly became unfamiliar in t
get it straight - for skittlesStella had never had any preconceived notions of marriage. Her mother had told her from birth that she would be cementing a place for her in the pantheon through her marriage, and Stella had been determined to treat her future husband at arm's length. After all, being forced to love someone wasn't her style. She wasn't a child of Aphrodite for a reason.
When she had met Jacob ("Gods, just call me Jake") for the first time, she had immediately disliked him. He was loud, stubborn, and worst of all, he was covered in motor oil. His red toga looked as if it had been fed to an automaton before he put it on, and there was a dent in his circlet. She on the other hand, knew she looked regal and way too good for him.
Months later before their wedding, she still held fast to that belief.
"You look nice," he said awkwardly, shifting next to her. Giant gold doors loomed in front of them, and behind the doors was the entire godly pantheon and all their children, waiting for them to enter.

round oneThe crowds roar was deafening in Daichi's ears. He looked nervously to Eizo and Keahi, who were both waving enthusiastically at the crowds. Tentatively, the earthbender raised a hand and waved as well. The arena was almost full, and Daichi was shaking.
He hated being under so much pressure to succeed, but he loved pro-bending. It was a complicated relationship.
The lights roved around the arena before settling on the bending platform. Quaking in his boots, Daichi assumed an offensive position as he lined up in front of Kaya, the Tiger-Seals' waterbender.
He hated going up against waterbenders. They were just so...fluid. Daichi could never keep track of their movements.
Just as the bell rang for the first round to begin, Kaya winked and sent a water whip flying at his chest. Surprised, Daichi stumbled back, the wind knocked from his lungs.
"Wait for the bell Tiger-Seals!" the announcer called, obviously exasperated. Daichi knew enough from watching the all-girl team's matches that this
a bride, her friends, and 17 pizzasKendra was less then impressed when the doorbell rang in the middle of her Walking Dead marathon.
"If Cam broke out of prison," she muttered, opening the door to see an exhilarated Zatanna standing on her doorstep. "Zee, what the hell?"
Zatanna only giggled and jumped on the spot before extending her left hand. Kendra grabbed it and shrieked.
"He didn't?" she yelled, looking at the sparkling diamon ring on Zatanna's finger.
"He did!" Zatanna replied giddily, jumping up and down.
"Come inside then, Mrs. O'Callaghan, and tell me everything!" Kendra squealed running for her pone. She sent an urgent text to Louise, Lolly, Artemis, Barbara and even Bennie.
My house! Now! Z has news!
Zatanna was sitting on the couch with a fairly blank look on her force when Kendra returned. "Oh god," she said softly, toying with her ring. "I'm going to be Mrs. O'Callaghan."
Kendra sank down on the couch next to her, wrapping an arm around her shoulders. "You don't have to change your name," she said
all for Youi can write You worlds, with only a key stroke
and She can bring you undone with several from her hand.
i will tell You stories of life in my quiet haggard voice
and She will show you stories as You look and caress her scars.
my eyes will tell You everything and i hold nothing back
while She is a mystery and You yearn to peel away the layers.
i could sing to You songs of love and pain and heartbreak
She will make You sing for Her with a glance and a kiss.
i love You
You love Her
She loves Herself
my words are useless.
