Water Runs in My Veins I break the surface and feel the waves embrace my into their icy, yet soothing arms. Once I am completely immersed, every inch of my skin tingles. My bones seem to melt to match the temperature of the water, and my movements become fluid. I deftly plunge deeper, feeling both the cold and the warmth rush past me with every stroke. The pulse of the ocean beats against my skin; it is alive. I open my eyes to take in the scene. I can't see clearly, the images are blurred. Still, I can make out soft hues of color. I reach out and feel the hard, smooth surface of a rock, resting amongst others. I feel a rigid plant, and my hand even grazes the backs of a couple of slimy fish. With each connection made by my senses, I feel a rush of adrenaline. I am truly unlimited when I'm under the sea; my fears have been washed away by the white waves.Water Runs in My Veins by ReiReiSerenade
Growing excited, I continue to venture deeper into the dark depths. Soon, I feel wisps of seaweed brush up against me, tickling
Tinted BlueI wantedTinted Blue by ReiReiSerenade
To capture the sea,
So I picked it up with my hands.
It seeped through my fingers,
And became droplets on the floor.
To live in the ocean,
So I poured water everywhere.
It swam away
And was gone within the hour.
To never leave the water,
So I never got out of the pool.
Now, my lips are tinted blue
And I have water in my lungs.
I got my wish,
But now my family is creating a flood.

I asked Fernando and Ana as they swam up to greet Diane, me, and several others who were then breakfasting in the hold of the Sutherland Express.
both of them signed together.
several of us signed at once in response.
[When are you going to do it?] Diane asked after we had linked up to communicate via my contact telepathy.
[As soon as we can. We decided not to wait until next summer. The next time one of those ships comes we will ask what we need to do] Ana said.
[Will you get married here in the Bahamas, or in Florida?] Jackie Blue asked.
[Here, if we can. We want all of you here to be able to join in the celebration...maybe the rest of you will be able to do it too someday] Fernando now said.
[You should have no problem getting married here] Jackie Blue said, recalling what Debbie (she was off somewhere else at the moment) had told us the morning Diane, Fernando, me, and a few other

Katara’s Point of View
As we looked through scrolls and books in the great underground library of Wan Shi Tong, I found interesting information on different topics. I found some information on some of the previous Avatars. It was pretty neat! Sokka would look at a book or scroll briefly, and then stash it in his bag. Come on, Sokka…, I thought.
“Hey, look at these weird lion-turtle things!” Aang exclaimed, holding up a picture of the gigantic creature in front of a human that looked so tiny.
“Eh! I’ve seen weirder.” Sokka said, waving it off.
I’d found something really cool, so I shared it with Aang.
“Aang, did you know in a past life, you were left-handed?” I said.
“I always knew I was special!” he stated with a huge grin on his face.
As I went to put the book back, another one caught my eye. It had a faded blue color and the cover had a single picture on it. The design was so simple, but I couldn’

Lake Maiden I
I so loved to dive into that lake. It felt like the only place I could call my own in this woods. Hiding among the silky grass and cool stones that lined the bottom, I wanted to curl up into a dark spot and sleep there, but my body would not cooperate with such a plan.
There were times I could come close, though. As the years went on and I grew bigger and stronger, I could stay beneath the liquid longer and longer. I could float, covered by the cool sanctuary, for minutes at a time. I loved how the water filtered out the noise above and brought me only soft abstractions of the most important sounds. The lake had its own sound-scape, its own world so separate from my own and it amazed how quickly I could be transported so far away from everything so quic
Song of the DeepThe night was cold and the wind howled like a beast in distress as its invisible essence danced over the flow of the land. The boy walked against its breath carrying a ragged cloth filled with morsels.Song of the Deep by Agacora
He could smell the salt in the air and feel the push and pull of the eternal tide drawing him in.
Above not a single star was seen and below was the ever crashing waves; where they lead he did not now.
Why exactly he had run off to the shoreline in the dead of night with scraps from the night's dinner evaded the boy as he crouched behind a clump of sea grass to banish the cold from his arms.
There was the tugging again as the tide swelled. It was as if the sea itself was whispering to him, calling him, to sink into it's vast depths. And now he was certain he could hear a faint song despite the crashing of the waves. It's tune wash soft and comforting, like a lullaby, and made him want to fall into a deep, deep, sleep. Maybe this was all a dream.
He examined the crude bag's c
