Lord of the Elements PREVIEWAvatar: Lord of the Elements
In a world where there are four Nations, the elegant Water Tribes, the stubborn Earth Kingdom, the peaceful Air Nomads, and the powerful Fire Nation, a chosen few in those Nations have the ability to bend the element of their Nation, water, earth, air, or fire.
Many years ago each Nation lived in peace with one another. But the new ruler of the Fire Nation wishes to destroy all the other Nations in order to rule the whole world. He has not succeeded, but has caused all other Nations to live in fear and chaos. The only way for the Fire Lord to destroy all other Nations is from the power of the ring. There is a legend of a ring that makes the owner's bending ten times more powerful and a non bender undefeatable. It has not been found. Until now.
Aang, a simple air bender from the Air Nomads, discovers he has something that the Fire Nation seeks, the ring. The Dark Fire Lord Ozai will stop at nothing to get what he wishes. Zuko, from the Fire Nation, i

Zuko waited anxiously in the waiting room of the health center in his palace for his wife to give birth to his heir, his child. He could never stay still for too long though, he got up and started pacing the floor, a frown on his brow. Why is it taking so long? Surely it shouldn't have taken this long? I wonder if something happened to the baby. The young Fire Lord thought.
Just then a nurse came out of the room. She had a smile on her face but there was sadness in her eyes. Zuko stopped pacing and straightened to his full height.
"It's a healthy girl." The old nurse told him.
Zuko's face brightened and he smiled. But something was wrong. Why did the nurse look so upset? He cleared his throat.
The nurse dabbed a napkin to her misty eyes. "I'm sorry Fire Lord, but I'm afraid the Fire Lady is fading fast. I don't think she's going to make it."
It felt like Zuko's very blood froze inside him and his heart stopped beating. He was in shock. This couldn't be happening to hi

(Zuko and Katara Love Story)
It's been five years since the Prince Zuko took the throne, Katara was at her tribe teaching young water benders about water-bending when Appa arrived and she received a letter from Aang, her ex-boyfriend. Her eyes widened as she read it. Zuko's father has escaped and captured him and Mai tried to rescue him but was killed doing so. Katara quickly got her stuff together and jumped on Appa. They both flew towards the fire nation.
As Katara landed in the fire kingdom, she hid Appa in a cave and used water-bending to lift herself over the wall surrounding the city. "How did Zuko's dad escape?" she thought as she ran towards the palace. "Halt!" Fire nation soldiers yelled when they saw her. She looked around and saw a bucket of water. She quickly focused and the water came out of the bucket, slammed them against a wall and then froze.

Zukos teeth chattered as he sat with his arms wrapped around himself. He despised the cold especially when he couldnt heat himself up for fear of melting the snow igloo around him. Not that he was afraid of ruining some little peasant house or anything no, he was more afraid of what Katara would do to him if he melted part of the house she had helped build for him as a shield from the falling snow..
Sighing, he exhaled a small bit of fire to attempt to warm himself up. Although it worked, he noticed with alarm that a part of the igloo was dripping that hadnt been dripping before. Scowling, he stopped firebending again.
Katara then entered the small snow house, beaming, cheeks tinged pink from the cold. Hey Zuko! she said brightly, shaking snow out of her hair. You have to come outside, its snowing! she said, sounding truly delighted.
Zuko merely scowled, wrapping his coat more tightly around him. I hate snow,

Chapter One- The End
Zuko hated flying on Appa, and if it didnt result on him eventually becoming the Firelord, he would have stayed on the ground. But there he was, thousands of feet above the endless ocean, praying their voyage would be coming to an end and yet anxious all the same.
It was all the open air, he told himself, the ringing from the wind that caused him to speak up, breaking the silence between Katara and himself.
So you and the Avatar, whats that all about? he asked Katara, raising his voice above the wind.
What? She partly yelled, then blushed from embarrassment. Oh, umm Im not quite sure.
Zuko moved his hair from his face and gave her a speculative gaze, Because I saw him kiss you the other night, at the play.
Kataras blush doubled to scarlet. Yeah.
I just didnt know you two were that close.
I didnt either, Katara met his golden g

Evil? How could I be the evil one? You were the one who tried to kidnap Aang, wanted the Fire Nation to rule the world, and kept letting people down! He didnt look up. She had hit a weak spot but he had expected every single word.
I know. But at that time, I thought I was the one who was the good guy. I wanted to capture the Avatar so I could restore my honour. Return to what I called my home. I wanted the Fire Nation, my home, to win the war because I had been told that we were the good ones. That we wanted to give wisdom and balance to the world. I see now, that that wasnt the truth, and I really cant blame anyone for still not trusting me. Especially you. Ive made a lot of bad

The orange afternoon sun reflected in the calm pond before him. Zuko had been pacing back and forth in front of the huge oak tree casting a dark and cold shadow over the pond area in the garden.
It had been almost a year since he and Mai got back together again and they were getting pretty serious. She had even sort of moved in with him at the palace, only a few days now and then she would return to her actual home, but it wouldn't be long before she came back and then she just stayed for a few days.
He had gotten used to having her around all the time, sleeping by her side every night, listening to her soft breathing as she slept. He knew she would kill him if she ever was to find out that he sometimes watched her sleep.
The thought made him shiver with a feeling of love and devotion to the melancholy girl he had

Another morning dawned on Pandora, several days after Danny had begun to meet up with Ash'teth, the soft rosy glow of a new dawn pushing aside the black curtain of the starry night that had gone before it. Danny found himself somehow sneaking his way out of the RDA compound without telling his parents once again, making silent excuses to himself all the way. I'll tell them later. They won't mind. I'm not scared of telling them, I'm just trying to keep out of their way. It's best if they keep all their concentration on their work, after all.
This time he managed to almost remember the path he usually took from the humans' compound to what he vaguely recalled as the area of the forest he had met Ash'teth in the few times they had come across one another. Feeling slightly proud of himself, he began to walk the rough circumference of the area, content simply to stroll along and wait for an appearance from his Na'vi friend, but always conscious of the need to keep ou

Casting a quick glance behind him at the dark blue eyaye leaf mounted in the branches of a small tree, the bright red streak through its stem pointing in his direction and proclaiming the path he was on as the right direction back to the lake, Ash'teth cursed under his breath. One of the clan's children had no doubt moved it, most likely because they knew he would be coming this way and thought it amusing to confuse the poor simple village joke. After a moment, he let a wry smile curl his lips; he was probably, on second thoughts, being too paranoid. Na'vi children had the right to mess around and play - they didn't mean to personally cause him trouble. Just because he had been a quiet, hesitant child, more content to sit under the hanging leaves of the nearest tree and put all his concentration into making toys and ornaments, it didn't mean every other young member of the Omaticaya was. He just wished they didn't have to persist with changing the brightly-colou

"So, you still haven't recovered even after the fourth time of seeing Hometree, huh? I told you, it's just a tree. It's not that amazing."
"It's " Danny didn't know the Na'vi word for 'immense', or even if there was one, so instead he finished off lamely, "big."
Ash'teth came to a stop in front of him and crooked an eyebrow, unable to hide a lopsided smile of amusement. "'It's big'. Aren't we descriptive today?"
"Oh, shut up," was Danny's highly original retort, unable to explain why he didn't have the developed sense of articulation he would like to while speaking in this language. He reached out to playfully shove the Na'vi, but he was one step ahead of him and dodged nimbly to the side, laughing as Danny missed. Exaggerating a groan, Danny glanced up at the canopy of trees high above them, silhouetted against the mid-morning sun. Despite his promise to his parents - which had been nagging at him relentlessly since he had returned to his avatar the day af

The dark cloak of night was pulling back to reveal a pale lilac dawn as Danny hesitantly walked through the undergrowth of Pandora's forest, a small knife held carefully in one hand. After the scare he had had coming across Ash'teth - with both of them nearly killing one another in the process, he inwardly added with a degree of sheepishness - he had realised how real the threat of actually coming across a thanator or a pack of viperwolves instead of just a Na'vi was, and didn't plan on heading into the forest's hazardous terrain without at least one weapon on his person again. He had woken early that morning, having set his alarm clock to make sure he didn't oversleep, to head into Pandora before his parents awoke. Their bedroom was directly opposite his own, and he knew that on their way towards the labs they would always check on him; he wanted to be back out of his avatar and in his own body by then. That way, he hoped, it would work out as a fair compromise. In th

Katara stood next to Zuko as he watched his country be taken from him. Her heart broke for him, and she was glad he wasn't crying; she wouldn't be able to handle his tears on top of it all. Finally she couldn't stand it any longer and she placed a hand on his shoulder. He did not welcome it, but he did not shake it off either. In fact, he just continued to watch his uncle's coronation as though nothing had happened. His face was stoic as the sage made his speech, but Katara could feel him trembling beneath her fingers.
The Firelord's crown was lowered onto Iroh's head and Zuko slumped at the finality the picture seemed to have. Katara rubbed his back, trying to give him a small bit of comfort. He'd finally gotten his throne only to have it taken away from him within a month. Finally he couldn't stand it any longer and he turned and walked away, not catching the sad look his uncle gave his retreating back. Katara sighed and wrapped her arms around herself at t

His own startled shriek of alarm merging with that of his attacker, Ash'teth accidentally let go of the string of his bow in a panic and the arrow shot through the canopy of trees and arced away high above them before landing somewhere out of sight with a dull thud. His assailant leapt back in shock at the same time as Ash'teth did, and in the startled pause that followed the two simply stood and looked at each other in surprise.
Ash'teth could barely hold back a sigh of relief when he saw that his attacker wasn't a ferocious predator, but a Na'vi who couldn't be much older than he was - in fact, on close inspection he looked a little younger. His shock of thick black hair was dishevelled and soaked with sweat and he was holding a long, makeshift spear formed of a stripped tree branch with trembling hands, the point still aimed at Ash'teth's face as if he was afraid he still might choose to shoot him. His eyes were wide and his chest heaving with the aftermath of the s

Eyes closed, Ash'teth allowed himself to drift into the melody of the prayer song as he swayed along with every other member of the Omaticaya, a perfect unison of cyan bodies. They sat in rows radiating out from the Tree of Souls, which stood high above them, casting a pale rose glow on the Na'vis' upturned faces as they sang. Every single queue was connected to the tendrils that rose from the ground beneath them, every single Na'vi connected, for those few short minutes, to Eywa and to their ancestors.
Eventually, the song faded, and Ash'teth opened his eyes to see the other Na'vi stretching as if awakening from a satisfying sleep, and beginning to get to their feet. He stayed where he was for a few moments longer until someone trod on his tail on their way back into the forest, and he glared vehemently at their back before finally disconnecting his queue from the tree's roots and scrambling up. Brushing his fringe out of his face with one hand, he stood and looked at

Kicking up soil from the forest floor with each step as he wandered aimlessly through the trees, Ash'teth barely looked around him, gaze focused on the ground in irritation. This time he didn't particularly care that he didn't know where he was going; he just wanted to get as far away from Hometree as possible, especially since he thought he might hit something - or someone - if he was treated like a simple child one more time. His frantic news that humans had been seen barely five miles from the village had been dismissed with the tone of someone speaking to a five-year-old: "That's nice, dear.We already know. Now go off and play." Despite being just four months away from his twenty-first birthday, Ash'teth couldn't shake the feeling that he had always been and would always be treated like an infant.
It's all Kanali's fault, he grumbled silently, absently poking a spiral-shaped loreyu plant nearby and watching as its huge, curled orange leaf vanis
What Happened To You Ch1After Zuko joined the group he noticed there was still one person who was ignoring him; Katara.

The onrush of emotions and sensations washing in one sudden wave over his mind always took him by surprise. Blinking a few times, Ash'teth wondered vaguely whether he would ever get used to it, then added inwardly with a wry smile that communicating with your long-gone ancestors and being part of a network connected directly to Eywa wasn't exactly something you could get used to. Closing his eyes and resting his forehead softly against the rose-pink strands of the tree's tendrils his queue was connected to, he concentrated on slowly calming his mind until it became a still pool free of all ripples and disturbances, then, mentally, began to speak.
