|A little manipulation I did. While I know it's not the best, I enjoyed putting it together and learned a great deal while working on it.|
ZKW-SootheShe was miserable. Not only was she pregnant, but it was wicked hot in the Fire Nation, which made it even more uncomfortable. Of course she knew it was always hot in the Fire Nation and of course she had been pregnant before, but the difference was that she was in the Southern Water Tribe during that pregnancy and not in the Fire Nation. During summer time. In the middle of a heat wave.ZKW-Soothe by paintedbluerose
“Ugh, how do these people do it Zuko? How can these women stand this heat?” Katara sighed. She rested in her bed, in the dark, with no clothes on, yet she was still sweating. She was still in the beginning few months of pregnancy and if this was how uncomfortable it was already, how would she be later on when she had more weight with her?
“We’re used to it. We grew up with the heat and that’s all we know. Plus, we’re firebenders. That means more heat to us. Everything is always hot.”
“You might be used to it, but I’m not. Being pregnant doesn’
ZKW-BoundAs hard as she tried, she couldn’t break free. Her arms and legs were tied tight and no matter how she moved, they wouldn’t budge. She couldn’t even bend. She was stuck and she couldn’t call for help since her mouth was gagged. All she could do was wait for him to come back and find out what he would do to her. She didn’t have to wait long as the door opened and her capturer stood in the doorway.ZKW-Bound by paintedbluerose
“Don’t bother trying to break free,” he said as he walked towards her.
She tried to be strong and brave, but the truth was, she was terrified. The important thing was to not show her fear. She held her head high, to show his words didn’t mean a thing to her.
“Trying to be strong won’t work here.” He grabbed her chin. “You’ll break down and give me exactly what I want.”
She was powerless against him as he ripped her clothes off of her. She had to admit it was hard to stay strong when she was exposed and he
ZKW-GravityUnder any other circumstances, she would have been happy to visit the Water Tribe. But this wasn’t one of those times. Even though she had visited not long before – less than a year – things had changed dramatically. Her family was smaller than it was before.ZKW-Gravity by paintedbluerose
She still couldn’t believe it. When she was here last, he seemed so strong, so healthy. If it was as bad as it was, he should have asked for help. She could have helped him. She could have healed him. Instead he was stubborn and didn’t want help.
Though she was a mess, she was glad Zuko was there with her. He kept her calm and levelheaded – as much as possible.
“Katara, I’m sorry for what happened,” he said, wrapping his arms around her.
“It’s not your fault Zuko.” She shook her head. “I still can’t believe he’s gone. It seemed like he would be the last of us to die, not the first.”
“Katara, I understand if you want to stay longer
ZKW-VoicesShe wasn’t sure of many things as of late. One of the things she started to worry about was the decision to visit family without Zuko. He was her family now too, and it was a spur of a moment decision to take the trip to the Southern Water Tribe, and Fire Lords have responsibilities to do, but that didn’t mean she didn’t miss him. It was just supposed to be a short visit, however, things were taking longer than normal. And now, it was getting to the point to where Katara couldn’t travel safely.ZKW-Voices by paintedbluerose
She wished she told him before she left. Then again, she wasn’t entirely sure herself and she was iffy about what he would say. Now, there was no choice in the matter. Besides, he had to expect his line to continue somehow.
She wanted to see his reaction when he heard the news, not saw it.
He couldn’t sleep. He would constantly wake up in the middle of the night, longing for her. He’d reach out, expecting her to be there, but there was nothing. A few

The Gift: Sokka's GiftSokka's GiftThe Gift: Sokka's Gift by Leona629
Where are you taking me?
Toph was pulling Sokka by the front of his shirt, and he was getting more annoyed with each step. She had said that she needed to talk to him, and that was fine. But she had taken him away from one of the best parties of his life, and she was walking so fast that his inebriated legs were having trouble keeping up.
Just walk Snoozles. He smiled at the nickname. Shed given him several over the years, but Snoozles was his favorite.
They stopped outside a small tent made out of rock. Apparently Toph had planned to sleep here instead of the inn. Whatever the reason, it seemed to suit her better.
She let go of his shirt and turned to face him. I have a wedding present for you, she explained. I was going to wait until next week, but I thought youd want this for the ceremony, so youre g

Why am I doing this?
Toph didnt even know if she was searching in the right place. All she had to go on was the general direction that Aang had given to her. After two months of desperate searching, she hadnt found so much as a nail. Granted, what she was looking for was a bit bigger than a nail, but it was still like looking for a nail in a swamp.
Not that that was far from the reality. The ground she was scavenging was wet and spongy. It was like being in the desert, she decided. Everything she saw was fuzzy. She could only see a few feet around her with any certainty.
This has to be the worst idea Ive ever had, she thought. I only have two weeks left. Maybe I should just give up-
A different vibration went up her leg and she gasped with anticipation. No way, she whispered out loud. She walk

Never Seen Blue - EpilogueEpilogueNever Seen Blue - Epilogue by SkyWarrior108
I was in the palace library when I came across a collection of scrolls containing proverbs. I reasoned that they must have belonged to my uncle, for no one else would have had use for such texts.
Curious, I unrolled the first scroll to see what it containedproverbs on leadership. There was a smaller scroll inside it with a broken wax seal on it. Looking at the imprint, it almost reminded me a Pai Sho piecethe white lotus tile. Opening this scroll, I saw that it was a poem of sorts.
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

|I love showing off my friends work and anything amazing I fav more than showing off my work. Sorry, I just don't think I'm all that good.|
|I critique literature. Short stories and such. If you need/want something critiqued, let me know.|
<--I love the amazing stamps people make for me. |
Hi there! My name is Melissa Rose, but you can call me Mel, Melissa, Rose, or whatever else you want. I'm a writer and hope to be published one day. We'll see.
I love writing and critiquing. If you would like something critiqued, let me know. I'll help out what I can. But to warn you: I am honest and sometimes harsh. I'm not going to hold your hand.
I also do a little photomanipulations and make some stamps as well. I love taking photos as well, but not too many of those make it here. I love writing the most though. I started here on dA with fan fiction for a show "Avatar: the Last Airbender". For the most part, I thought I stopped it. Then, "Legend of Korra" was announced and well, I'm back a bit to writing it again. Thankfully, I also write other things as well. I have my own stories here, short stories and small multi-chapters, as well as poems. I love poetry. Pretty much anything and everything. I draw a little, but it's not very good. Sorry.
I love to read and have a long list of books that I've read, but can't remember all of them. My bad. Thus the amazon review links: www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/… It helps me out a ton! Also, if you want to get me anything on the wish list, that's always awesome. Just saying.
I'm also on other sites as well:
youtube: (aguarosa) www.youtube.com/user/aguarosa?…
Y!A: (Wishful Thinking) answers.yahoo.com/my-activity
Uh... I know there are others as well, but I can't recall all of them right now. Sorry. Also, my name changes on each one depending on my mood.
Feel free to email me for any help or just to talk.
