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
Creepypasta x Depressed!Reader - ZombieI frown looking at the small red droplets covering the bottom of the bathtub. Hearing three louds knocks on the bathroom door makes me look up from my wrist. I didn’t even hear him coming down the hall. Who am I kidding, I never hear him when it most matters.
But I hear the now, going back to the living room. I hesitate for a moment, cleaning up the tub and pulling my sleeves over the soon-to-be scars. I exit out of the bathroom, cigarette smoke instantly filling my lungs, making me want to tear my skin off and cough so bad that it makes throat ache. But I can’t. He is already standing there, eyes narrowed, making his face look much older than it actually should. I walk up slowly, aggravating him more.
He probably wouldn’t have been this angry if Vanilla was here.
She had left a few weeks ago, all while killing our mother. She was just abusive as our father, maybe worse. The police were called before she could get to our d
Eren Yeager x Reader One-Shot: His Hero
Being forced into training after being attacked by the Colossal Titan has caused all Hell to be released into Wall Maria and threatens all inhabitants of Wall Rose. It's only been two years since you, Eren, Mikasa, and Armin were pushed in the Trainee Corps. Just being there the first day was harsh enough to drive people to their limits, sending them back into the fields to work hard labor. The sincere intimidation from Keith Shadis had shown the wretched truth as to why some people had signed up in the Trainee Corps in the first place. It made you sick to see that people joined only to live in the luxury of the Military Police Brigade where none of them had to face the horrific creatures known as Titans. You, on the other hand, were planning to join the Survey Corps where you would be serving a purpose; whether it meant you would lose your life the next day.
"WHAT'S YOUR NAME, MAGGOT?!" Keith continued on with intimidating the Trainees as he w
UnableEmily leapt out of the car as soon as it was stopped and her fidgety hands could undo the seat belt, she excitedly ran straight over the lush green verge and into the pebble-dashed sand. Falling to her knees she clamped her hands around fistfuls of the warm little stones and threw them, delighted, into the air. The beach! Emily loved the beach, she had loved it her whole life. It was her second favourite place to be (after her pillow fort with Jennie, her polar bear teddy).
Emily’s Dad scooped her up off of the sand and held her upside down, making her shriek with laughter. He scolded her for running off but she knew that he was as happy as she was to be back at the seaside, so she laughed until he put her down again for wriggling too much.
Right way up again Emily scampered up and down the golden sweep of beach front looking for the absolute perfect place to watch the tumbledown waves of water. Emily knew her

When I was younger I had many imaginary friends. Short ones, tall ones, some looked like cats or dogs, but none of them could compared to Mr. Thing. Mr. Thing, when I was younger, was a cute little teddy bear my mother had given me when I was three. Despite my imaginary friends he was all to real, cuddling me at night and keeping me company during the day. I carried him everywhere, and had refused to go anywhere without him up till the age of seven. Though even after I had stopped taking him everywhere I had still carried him around the house as if he were able to save me from dangers.
I had explained to him that I didn't want to take him to school anymore because he'd get dirty, and of course he had understood. Patiently waiting for me to return home to play with him. When I would come home he was the first thing I went to; where he would then sit, and help me with
WonderlandThe woman called Alice walks alone through the hollow streets, a seed planted in her sterile heart and a rifle sleeping in her belt. Last night, she'd witnessed the popping of Pérignon, and a dazzling display of fireworks, complete with alcohol-polished emotions and hundreds of thousands of citizens pulsing rowdy fanfare. She'd netted her highest number of kills that fateful day. Blood still rests in the creases of her palms.
A streetlamp greets her brightly with its mild glow, and alerts her to a dirty and disheveled homeless man groveling for money on the other side of the street. The young couple next to him give a feeble attempt to back away, claiming they have none to spare.
"Lies," Alice whispers. She can easily see the pearls jingling from the lady's neck, and a well-crisped suit guarding the young man from the night chill. Money is more than expendable to them. And this city could do without this attractive mask of a couple. They, too, are expendable. Alice begins t
Suicide and RebirthI stumbled upon a beautiful girl who was listening to loud music. I asked her,
"What kind of music do you listen to?"
She took out one earbud from her ear and replied,
"I listen to many things, sir."
"Like what?" I ask with curiosity.
"I listen to the breeze of the wind and the sound of the rain slamming on the roof during the stormiest of nights. I listen to the laughter of children when they play on the playground. I listen to the humming of the birds and the buzzing of the bees." She says.
"What beautiful things to listen to." I smile. "Do you listen to anything else?"
She smiles. "I'm glad you've taken an interest to my taste of music." She continues. "I listen to the pecking of woodpeckers and the howling of the wolf."
"The heart has its own song as well, sir. Do you hear it?" She asks in a tender voice.
"I do not." I say. "What does your heart sing of?"
"My heart sings of the rattling chains coiled around it, constricting it tighter and tighter as life drags on. It
When Love Breaks Down‘Sometimes my heart hurts to watch you’
- Wild Beasts.
‘Now you’re just somebody that I used to know’
I walk along the muddy path adjacent to the football field. With each step the thick layer of mud underneath my feet squelches satisfyingly and further encrusts itself onto my black boots. This late autumnal weather is beginning to turn bitter and unpleasant. Even my thick black winter coat cannot stop my skin from forming goosebumps or prevent my lips from shaking. The strong and violent wind collides against my face; my ears begin to ache and my head begins to hurt from the sheer force of it. The wind flirtatiously plays with my long blonde hair, throwing it around my face and deeply entangling it, whistling happily as it does so. Resentfully, I pull my coat tighter around me.
I look up at the overcast sky, dark clouds looming above and threatening to rain down on me. The wind chivvies them along and the
Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess and a handsome prince. The prince was a little older but the princess didn't mind. He was like a brother but very, very cute!
But the princess had an evil, mean, stinky older sister who always took the prince away from her! This made the princess very sad and angry!
She wished she was older...that way she could have the prince all to herself!! So one day she prayed to the stars and wished to be older!
"AND IT CAME TRUE!!!" Brianna screeched in her room. She stood in front of her mirror and struck a few poses. The clothes draped on her, and the heels were way too big for her feet. They were heels, bright red ones from mother's closet! Her dress of choice was the most beautiful one out of her mom's closet- a lovely blue sparkly dress which flowed outward like a mermaid dress. However, when Brianna wore it, it looked like a bag.
That's not all she had "borrowed." Her mother's jewelry always lay in the jewelry box on the dresser. It was
Death Battle: Travis Touchdown vs Jack Cayman
Madness Abe: Alright, the votes are in and the combatants are set. Let's end this battle once and for all.
Insanus Abe: IT'S TIME FOR A DEATH BATTLE!!!
Varrigan City, Jefferson Island
The monochromatic city of Varrigan was once more in a state of...bizarrely enough, organized chaos. This year's DeathWatch games had started off with a bang, and quite a bang it was. While it was difficult to repair from the damage caused during the last games and was a pain to look for new sponsors and organizers, but in the end, it was done. And the games were once more going and providing blood-soaked entertainment to all.
Jack Cayman stood in the middle of an empty street, leaning on a wall and smoking a freshly lit cigar. It was quite surprising to see the reigning DeathWatch champion be so relaxed...especially considering the fact that he was surrounded by an ocean of mutilated corpses, all victims of a chainsaw to
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
