100 Prompt Challenge ch1"Mom! What happened there?" asked an eighteen year old Aaron asked.Sandra laughed as she turned a page in her scrapbook to reveal a page that showed a picture of the BAU team. They were sitting at the conference table laughing as the door shut."Oooooh, now that was funny! You were there, Aaron!" Sandra pointed. In the corner, there was a little Aaron, only five years old, looking abashed. "Let me tell you what happened."*flashback*The team had gathered in the conference room. Sandra knew it wasn't an ideal location for a birthday party, but she had to make do. All the team was there, even Seaver, though Sandra didn't know her well enough. Even Julia Levin was there, an old friend from her Academy days. Garcia had planned this party. They waited for her to come in. Apparently, she and JJ had cooked up a great surprise for Aaron.Sandra knelt down beside Aaron (she'd just gotten a text from JJ-- "The surprise is ready.") and put on his birthday hat, one of the reall
Defender of the People ch6"The hardest work is to go idle." -Yiddish Proverb%$%$%$%$%$I honestly don't know what I would have done if Peebles had killed her. I don't know what anyone else would have done either. This team has gone through so many hard times
First, Elle, then Gideon, then Hayley
I know she was my ex, but I could see that the team cared. They still do.It's hard to imagine anything else happening, but deep down, I think all of us know it. We can feel the changes in the air. We're tenser, more on edge. But that's not the point.I try so hard not to show emotion during cases, and for the most part, I succeed. I can think of very few instances where I've lost my cool. But they're happening more and more frequently. It goes back to all of us being more on edge. Mostly, they were where members of my team were getting hurt at the hands of an Unsub. Cyrus, Peebles, Hankel, Frank
There were lots of others, but those were the worst. Until we met the Reaper, Foyet. I'm

Conflagration"And those are your orders, Mizuki."Mizuki rose from her kneeling position, put her knuckle in her hand (fingers up), and bowed in the traditional Japanese fashion. She went back to her home to pack a bag for her mission.This time, it was an assassination. Mizuki was to go to the capital, where Lord Oda Nobunaga was meeting with his lieutenants for a "secret" war council. Any citizen could see that Nobunaga was stepping it up, getting ready for war. She'd be accompanied by her fiancé Haku. The first thing they had to do after their arrival was establish themselves at the Iga ninjas' hideout.There were already other Iga ninja there; the two had been working as kusa, delivering intel about Nobunaga and the capital, for over twenty years. Haku and Mizuki were to pose as their son and his wife. Why they'd been briefed separately was beyond Mizuki. But she was just glad to have been chosen for this mission.She finished packing. Almost. Mizuki took off her tunic and put on her kimon
Born of Water, Into Fire ch1As the daughter of the chief, young Mizuki had an obligation to attend this banquet. This one was a doubly important one, though the public didn't know it-- this was the announcement of the new avatar, Kioshi. Actually, there was something about it that her father had chosen not to tell her. She and Chief Dai-Lan had always been very close. Yuu-Jun, her mother, loved the both of them with all her heart.Mizuki was in her room. Her attendant, Xiu, braided Mizuki's long brown hair. In silence, Xiu attached Mizuki's Mark of Mastery, a blue arm band with a wave pattern woven into it. Since she got it two years ago, Mizuki had told Xiu multiple times, but she had insisted. In the end, Mizuki decided to let Xiu have her way.As was custom, once a water bender became a master, the Mark was also woven into their coat sleeves. Mizuki remembered the ceremony well-- her parents had practically glowed with pride. She smiled.Mizuki put her coat on over her traditional garb and walked out of the ho
The Princess Rider ch3Evarinya sat on Briam's saddle as Arya led them through camp towards the training field. When they arrived, Eragon and Saphira were there already, along with Nasuada and Blodgharm. Evarinya jumped off of Briam and walked over. Briam followed. As Evarinya walked beside Briam, Evarinya kept her hand on his giant foreleg.Oh Eragon! Look how his scales sparkle in the sun!If you do decide to act, make sure that you do when this is all over and done, Saphira.Are we really having this discussion again?Eragon gave no response.The flying test went really well, of course, as did magic. But everyone present knew that they were just formalities. At last, it was time for the arms test. Arya and Evarinya moved to the center of the arena and blocked their swords. They faced each other, neither daring to move.Evarinya slashed. Arya stepped nimbly back. Arya spun around and hacked at Evarinya's side. Just in time, Evarinya lowered her sword, Domia, and their swords clashed at
