In life, there were a lot of things Sokka knew, and even more things he didn't know.
He knew he had been dancing with Toph at Zuko's party.
He didn't know what piece of furniture had caused them to trip. He didn't know how they had come to be on the floor with Toph leaning against the wall. He certainly didn't know how his face had ended up mere inches from hers.
And looking back, he didn't know why he'd said it.
He knew it wasn't a lie, but it was unlike anything he'd ever said to her before. Maybe it was the plum wine, maybe it was the music humming in the background, maybe it was the imminent marriage of the Fire Lord.
He did know for sure that it needed to be said.
"Y'know Toph," Sokka said, "you're really pretty."
He knew he was going to be earthbended across town or find himself suddenly buried up to his chest. So he was more than a little surprised when she did the most un-Toph-like thing he'd ever seen her do.
