rec: fanfiction "Stronger Today" by Ambrel  
I'm sure that some of you frequent FF.Net as much as I do, but for those who don't, I wanted to give a heads-up towards this story:

Author: Ambrel
Story: Stronger Today
Rating: Teen
Genre: adventure/romance
Status: 12 Chapters | Complete
Summary: We stayed there in comfortable silence, every now and then smattered with light conversation. It was nice. It felt good to slow down and relax. It gave me some time to think, without distractions.

It's an entertaining read, sort of an Indiana Jones-meets-Storm Hawks sort of style. Lots of action, tiny hints of fluff, and Aerrow's introspection as he considers his confused feelings towards his fellow teammate is a riot.

I don’t think I have ever been so happy to see that skimmer. And believe me, that is saying a lot. I love my skimmer. I spend a lot of time with my skimmer. My skimmer and I go together like a hand in a glove. We get along great all the time. It never makes me confused and giddy. It never gets mad and shuts down on me. I always know when it doesn’t feel quite right and all it takes to make it happy again is a couple fuel crystals or a tweak with a wrench.

Yeah, me and my skimmer make a great team.

I shot a glance over at Piper. She leaned against her heliscooter with her arms wrapped around her middle.

Piper was nothing like my skimmer.

Piper confused me. Especially lately. She didn’t have an on or off switch. There was no way for me to easily tell what to do to make things better. She was fun to hang out with but she could switch moods at the drop of a hat. She did things that I couldn’t fathom the reason for, and lately, she’d been making all sorts of weird emotions go through me.

I mean, it probably had only been maybe three or four days but it felt like it had been a lot longer. And in those few days she had made me confused, hurt, worried, scared for her life, uncomfortable… she had caused that weird fluttering sensation in the pit of my stomach…

I don’t know if I will ever understand Piper.
