|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
|These are just things that have peaked my interest lately. Fanfics from Avatar: the last Airbender, Poems on occasion, stamps when inspired, my own writing, photos, manipulations, and whatever else flows from my pen works.|
The Refuge of the Gravethere is a darkness that consumes a manThe Refuge of the Grave by peterdawes
from marrow to flesh and bone to skin as though
a cancer; a tumor raging out of control.
the brush fire rages with the heat of sticks
and twigs and leaves all cast upon the forest floor.
i walk amongst the flames, being charred,
but not consumed. they lick at clothing and
singe the collar of my shirt with something more
than kisses, leaving more than lipstick in its wake.
i drown within it as though drowning within
the seven seas and cast my eyes toward the heavens.
where are the silent statues of godly men
when one is strolling through the valley of
their soul, desperate to find a place to rest?
where is the deity that saints and martyrs gave
their lives for, in the same fires which consume me?
oh, impious one, you bleed so well, perhaps
another pint will do; perhaps another
pound of flesh will suffice to sate the whims of god.
i beg the flames to cauterize me.
i beg the spirits in the astral plane to
depart from me at once; the cosmos to look a
|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:

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.
