Tea you later, Sherlock."So, why do I have to wear this ridiculous hat?" Sherlock asked, fixing the hat on his head with a scowl.
"Because it's a uniform, Sherlock. We all have to wear one, and please stop complaining. You should just be grateful I got you this job in the first place." John sighed, counting the money in his register drawer.
"I am grateful, I needed a job. But that has nothing to do with this dreadful green hat." Sherlock pointed to the baseball cap on his head.
"Look, just stock the shelves behind me. I don't want to put you on the register until you gain more people skills." John said as a woman approached the counter. "Good afternoon, ma'am. Will this be all for you today?" John asked, picking up the box of chai tea that she had put on the counter.
"Yes, thank you." She smiled as she reached for her wallet.
"Why are you buying that here? You can get the same thing at any supermarket for less." Sherlock commented, seeing the price on the glowing screen in front of John.
"Oh, well, I guess I'
Zutara week2013: sootheZuko was up in his office working. It was wonderful that right now he was organizing Azula's work files because that was what his father thought to be top priority. He really hated his job. He was working on alphabetizing Harrison, Harvey, and Harper when he heard a cry from down stairs. He dropped the folders to the desk and sprinted down to the first floor where he heard crying coming from the kitchen. He busted through the door to see Katara holding a towel around her hand and keeping it close to her stomach. The towel was rapidly turning red.
"What happened?!" He asked running over to her.
"What's going on?" Sokka asked, coming up the stairs to the basement.
"I cut my thumb open on a knife." Katara cried.
"Alright, sit up here." Zuko easily lifted her up onto the counter as Sokka rummaged for the first aid kit. "What were you doing?"
"I was washing dishes, and I thought I got them all so I reached into the water to check and sliced my finger open really bad." She said, tightening h
Zutara week2013: bound"Oh, shut up. You're 17, you don't know everything." Katara said, drying her hands on a towel.
"I know more about parenting than you do, Katara. Hiccups are annoying to everyone. Putting some sugar on his pacifier to stop it isn't going to anything to him." Toph said, crossing her arms defiantly.
"Except give him a huge sweet tooth. And he's going to get cavities if you keep giving him sugar once he gets teeth-"
"I'm going to brush his teeth, Katara. It's not that bad."
"You still don't know everything, Toph. I've been the mother around my house since my mom died."
"Oh, here we go again with the, oh I had to grow up so fast because my father and brother couldn't take care of themselves."
"Hey, I'd like to see you do all the stuff I did. You had people to do everything for you. Mommy and Daddy did whatever you wanted. Some of us didn't have all that money to throw around."
"Hey! I don't fall back on my parent's money! I've been holding my own since I got pregnant, and I'm just fine. I'v
Zutara week2013: gravity"Ugh, stupid, freakin-"
"What are you doing in there?" Zuko asked from the couch.
"Nothing! Damn it!" Katara yelled again.
"Ok, I'm coming in there-"
"No! Don't come in here!" She yelled from the kitchen. Zuko stood there with his hand on the door, contemplating going into the kitchen anyways.
"What are you doing?" He asked, letting his hand fall from the wooden door.
"Nothing. It's nothing." Katara said, rushed. It was followed by a crash and the sound of a ceramic bowl shattering.
"Are you o-" Zuko asked as he pushed the door open. Before him was a flour and batter covered Katara, even wearing an apron, standing by a broken bowl spilling batter onto the tile wood floor.
"I, uh, hi." Katara waved timidly.
"What is going on in here?" Zuko asked, stepping over the mess on the floor to his wife.
"I was, uh, I was making a cake." She said softly.
"I wanted to surprise you with it after our anniversary dinner." She looked up at him with puppy-dog eyes. "But stupid gravity-"
Zutara week2013: voices"Kat?" Zuko asked, poking his head into the kitchen. He had been looking for her all over the place, but she was no where to be found.
"Katara!" He yelled down the basement stairs. But there was no response. Just the silence of an empty house. Sokka and Suki had gone out for the day. Azula was with Ty-lee and Mai. His parents had gone to work. He was in the house alone. But he had no clue where his wife was.
"Zuko," He heard a whisper. He could swear it was Katara. Maybe he was going crazy, but he turned around, and he could almost see it in front of him.
"Zuko, I can't reach the top shelf." The 16 year old Katara was standing on her toes trying to reach the bowls on the top shelf of the cabinet.
"Here, I got it." The 18 year old Zuko before him reached up above her and grabbed the bowl she had been reaching for.
"Thanks." Katara rewarded him with a kiss on the cheek as she continued to make her breakfast.
He had never realized how much of a life him and Katara had in this hous
Zutara week2013: EuphoriaZuko and Katara were sitting on the couch watching tv when Suki came running through the door.
"Hi, Suki, how you doing?" Katara asked, looking up at her.
"We're having a girl!" Suki said, running over to behind the couch.
"Oh my gosh! That's so exciting!" Katara turned around and knelt on the couch.
"Not when it's your wallet taking the hit." Sokka said, walking in carrying a big box.
"We bought a crib." Suki said happily.
"So, what are you going to name her?" Katara asked.
"Kiri. We talked about it and we both love that name." Suki said, looking back at Sokka.
"Oh, that's so exciting. Let's go get Toph. We'll have a girl's day." Katara said, looking at Zuko.
"Here. Don't do anything extremely expensive." He sighed and handed her his car keys and his credit card.
"Thank you. I love you." Katara gave him a kiss on the cheek and ran out the door with Suki.
"Guess we're building a crib." Zuko said, grabbing one end of the big box.
"Aang is coming over to help. You know, like get us beers
Zutara week2013: Calor"Zuko, zuko." Katara shook her husband awake.
"Hm? What?" He asked, squinting against the sunlight coming in through the window.
"Toph is bringing the baby over. Aang has to work a double shift today and Toph has to go run errands. We have to watch him." She said, tucking her hair behind her ear.
"Ugh, I don't want to watch a baby. They're sticky and loud and they drool." Zuko sighed, rolling back over in bed.
"Zuko, get up. I told Toph we could watch Di-Chi." Katara sighed, crossing her arms.
"Then shouldn't you get dressed?" Zuko asked, looking at her in her blue t-shirt and plaid pajama shorts.
"Look who's talking. Look, if you don't want to watch the baby, fine, I'll do it myself, you just stay up here and sleep." Katara said, angrily grabbing her ponytail off of the dresser and storming out of the room. The doorbell was ringing as she rushed down the stairs.
"I'm coming!" She yelled as she reached the front door. Toph was standing on the other side of it with a wriggling baby in h
Zutara: Movie nights and Sleepovers"Be good, Zuko. Thank you for watching him, Kaya." Ursa stood at her neighbor's front door with her son.
"I will be." Zuko said, wincing as his mother kissed his cheek. "Mom." He grumbled.
"Right. I'm leaving." Ursa waved and left her son at her friend's house.
"Katara! Zuko's here!" Kaya yelled up the stairs. Katara ran down the steps, her little pig tails bouncing with each bound.
"You two go ahead and watch a movie. I have some work to do." Kaya went to her office at the top of the stairs and left the children alone.
"Let's watch The Little Mermaid." Katara said, shutting the door behind her friend.
"That's what we watched last weekend. It's my turn to pick." Zuko stumbled over to the shelf with the DVDs and looked for one. He pulled one out and passed it to the girl behind him.
"A Nightmare on Elm street? Sokka said that was a really scary movie." Katara said, glancing at the cover of the movie.
"What? You're not scared are you?" Zuko asked, raising his eyebrows and crossing his ar
ZM12: Sublime"No, Dad, I-I get it. I know. Alright, We'll call you." Sokka was sitting at the kitchen table talking on his cell phone. Katara had just walked into the room and overheard the ending of his conversation. "Yeah, Yeah tell Uncle Bato we said hi. Be careful out there. Love you too. Bye." Sokka hung up the phone and set it on the table.
"Was that dad?" Katara asked.
"Yeah. Umm, Katara, Dad can't be home for Christmas." Sokka said looking up at her with watery eyes.
"What? B-but he said-"
"I know. But, something happened at the navy base and he has to stay there for a few more months." Sokka sighed. Katara started crying. "Katara, it'll be ok. I'll be here and Zuko. Toph, Aang, Suki, all our friends will be here." He stood up and hugged Katara.
"But this is the first year without Dad. Or Gran-Gran. I don't even know if Grandpa Paku is coming. Last I heard he had retired in Alaska." Katara cried. Sokka looked up and saw Zuko standing in the door way. He shook his head and turned around and

Mattie or Matthew turned to see a girl with (hair/length) (hair/color) hair and (eye/color) eye running toward him. He waited for her to get to him and catch her breath. When she did she smiled at him.

“Did what (Name)?” he asks

“Cool, which country did you chose?” he asks curiously

Scooby Doo and Shaggy VS Animatronics: Battle
The Mystery Machine was driving down a bleak road in the middle of the forest. Shaggy and Scooby had to do all of the Mystery Solving, since the rest of the gang was on a vacation. They were looking for a rest stop, or, at least, a place to eat. Scooby had eaten all of their food for the trip.
"Jeez, Scoob, why do I have a feeling this might be more difficult without Fred, Daphine, and Velma?"
"Raggy, look, a sign!"
The sign spoke of an exit, about half a mile away. Shaggy stopped for a minute and examined the sign.
"On exit five, turn left, and you will find a small town, home of Freddy Fazbear's pizzerea. This famed Pizza restaurant makes some of the best Pizza 'round. Though make sure to leave by closing, as the restaurant is not responsible for any dismemberment and mutilation."
Scooby ran up to the window closest to Shaggy.
"Rid you say Pizza?"
"Yeah, Scoob! Let's go there, and besides, I wasn't paying attention at that last part anyways!"
Shaggy leapt into the front seat, and sta
A Letter from your SongsAnother oldie... Not a poem this time, but a letter written to song artist Stevie Nicks, (who has been a favorite of mine and a big inspiration to me for a very long time...since my teen years).
The letter is written to her using her songs. (which are shown in bold)
Has anyone ever written anything for you?
I have, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for: The beginning of The dance. For being there at the Edge of seventeen of my life. For showing me the sparkling beauty of the Silver spring. For the contrast of Leather and lace . For introducing me to Sarah. For embracing the world within your Dreams . For knowing your Destiny : and being the Kind of woman that you are; giving, Unconditional love. Even though Outside the rain wreaked
ShipsDo you know why its a bad idea for ships to travel side by side over the sea?
They sat side by side, husband and wife, not touching. She sat perched on the edge of the sofa, as though she was scared to come into contact with anything solid. He, on the other hand, lay so far back that he was almost flat, as though hoped that the cushions would swallow him. He was wrapped in a blanket (he was always cold these days) whereas she just looked cold. Not as if she was cold, but as if she radiated it, as though it was some sort of negative heat. Neither of them looked at each other. They both acted as though the TV was their entire world.
The motion of the waves acts on the outer edge of each of the two ships.
"Do you still love me?" she said suddenly. He didn't reply. This wasn't particularly surprising, as she had been dead for a year now. She sighed, and he wriggled deeper under his blanket.
But the really interesting part is that each of the ships acts as a natural shield
Wizards in Training (TG) (Request)(WARNING: This story contains descriptions of a man turning into a woman. If this puts you off, feel free to pass this up.)
The Pogona Institution for the Magically Inclined; call it your real-world Hogwarts equivalent if you will. This was a prestigious college, located in far off in the Canadian wilderness, surrounded by lush forests and mirror-like lakes, beyond which the snow-covered mountains rise to dominate the skyline. The college itself was not unlike your modern campus grounds, only it featured more of an elegant decor than most other public educational establishments. Despite the absolutely beautiful view, this school was particularly private, and only those who prove themselves to be truly capable of wielding arcane forces are allowed to enter. This process is full of all sorts of challenges and troubles, but some people manage to make it in by the skin of their neck. Two such people are new students Aaron and Bennett, who had just enrolled a week ago.
America x reader: late night grocery shoppingI do not own hetalia or you~
15 years old, you are England's child
I felt my arm being shaken. "Hey...hey (name)...wake up!" I heard an American voice whisper. I opened my eyes slightly. "Alfie what time is it...and how did you get into England's house?" I groaned. "I picked the lock...come with me to the grocery store!" He said. I leaned up. "Okay...why?" I asked lazily throwing my feet over the bedside. "Because I ran out of coke and I need more but I don't wanna go alone." He said. I nodded as I tugged on a hoodie and held my arms up. "Carry me." I said. Alfred laughed and let me hop onto his back. I laid my head on his shoulder and watched everything move by me. Soon we got to the car and he put me in the passenger seat.
We drove quickly to the grocery store, however I didn't get to be carried because an angry woman yelled at us when we walked in with me on his back. So Alfred got a cart and let me sit in it. "Dang...someone needs a happy meal." Alfred said in a snappy t
Rentals"And that's how I ended up on this shelf!" I made sure to say with a smile on my face. The man across from me just tilted his head in confusion. "Is something still wrong? I thought I did a pretty good job at explaining why my head is here."
"Yeah, but..." he said while crossing his arms. He seemed to be at a loss for words. "Okay, I get that you're only being rented out and not actually for sale. But why are you actually.. ya know.. on?"
"What?" It took me a second to realize what he meant. But I got it. "Oh! Well that's easy. Since I volunteered for this, I'm left on so I can let people know why my head isn't for sale. I uh, hold on." I needed to blow my hair out of my face, since my hands were else where in the store. I wasn't getting much done, but thankfully the customer brushed my black hair behind my ear and out of my hair. "Thank you! Now where was I? Oh right. Normally there are a lot more rental heads out on display, but we are near closing time and I seem to be the last one
Barefoot Benefits 6It was a pleasantly hot summer day. Sally was in her backyard role-playing with her pokémon while Amanda and Brenda watched from foldable chairs.
“The brave heroes had finally made it to the giantess’s lair. As they rushed forward, the loud thuds of the giantess’ footsteps could be heard and grew louder and louder. The heroes skidded to a halt as the giantess walked forward into sight, eyeing them angrily with her club gripped tightly and her pet sitting upon her shoulders,” narrated Sally as she, Growlithe, and Lillipup each played their parts and Treecko rode on Sally’s shoulders.
“Growlithe growl, growlithe!” shouted Growlithe.
“Pup!” shouted Lillipup.
“Never! Your princess shall be my slave for eternity! Begone or be crushed!” said Sally.
“Treecko tree!” said Treecko with a nod.
Growlithe and Lillipup replied by growling angrily and standing ready to fight.
“So be it!” shouted Sally befor
JimmyXCindy week: CareerCindy sat in her college class. She was going to school to be a lawyer, and the university of Retroville had a fantastic law program. Her teacher wasn't in today, so someone else stood at the front of the class. She was having trouble following today. He wasn't the best teacher of law, and he was kind of cute, so she really wasn't paying attention.
"A-Alright class, good lesson today. Now uh, class dismissed." The professor said. Cindy gathered her things and went up to the desk.
"Ok, you should not make teaching your career." She said.
"I know! They needed a quick sub today, I didn't have a class. So, quiet you." He said, erasing the chalk board.
"I'm teasing you Jimmy." Cindy chuckled at his reaction.
"I know that too." He sighed.
"Oh you act like you know everything." Cindy said.
"I do know everything." He said, turning to her.
"Yeah, yeah. You just think your so smart, and cute, and sexy." She said.
"You think I'm sexy?" Jimmy asked.
"No, I think you think you're sexy." She said de
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
