ZW: SecretThe scars did nothing to him except made him hide more. He was still the same as he always had been. Maybe that's what made his father furious even more. The fact that the scars were supposed to teach him a lesson and they didn't. Maybe they weren't big enough, strong enough to teach a lesson. So, Ozai decided to really teach his son a lesson by burning a mark on his face. A permanent disgrace for everyone to see the beast he was. Yet, that did nothing. Sure, Zuko was embarrassed to have those scars and half his face burned to a crisp, but he did nothing different.ZW: Secret4 years ago in Romance More Like This
It was then Ozai realized nothing could be done to fix his son. He banished his son to an abandoned island where no one could ever see him. Ozai told Zuko it was for his own good, that people would see the scars and become afraid, that people would think of him as a beast. But really, it was because Ozai grew sick of looking at his deformed son. Ozai couldn't allow anyone to see this beast that came from him. Zuko no longer

No matter how hard she tried or wished or hoped, he was still gone and nothing would bring him back.

She longed for those warm nights they spent together. The way his body felt against hers. The way his kisses felt against her lips. She could almost still feel his body next to hers, his hands all over her, his touch.

But those nights when they were the Painted Lady and Blue Spirit had long disappeared. They left when he left. Now all she had was a mask to remind herself of pain she felt. No matter how many times she tried to be just the Painted Lady, she couldn't. She ended up curling up in his bedroom, holding his mask. The last thing he touched. Because it reminded her of him. Because she could still
ZKM-DesireHis heart raced every time he saw her. He couldn't explain it, but he was overcome with this feeling of longing, of wanting to touch her, caress her, be next to her in every possible way. Every time he tried to speak to her, he was a wreck – he couldn't talk except random nonsense , and he sweated way too much. What she was doing to him, he didn't know, but he wanted a fix.ZKM-Desire2 years ago in Romance More Like This
He loved the way she smiled and the way her laugh sounded – even if it was at him. He loved how passionate she became about everything. It was almost as if she should have been born in the Fire Nation as fiery as she became, but then maybe he wouldn't want her as much as he did.
And when they fought… oh he loved it when they fought. It was when her spark burned the brightest. The fire and water dancing around the two of them, creating their own personal space.
He had to admit it, he desired the Water Tribe girl and he would do whatever it took to win her.
ZW: MaskIt started with a mask.ZW: Mask4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Uncle thought it would be funny if Zuko had a piece of something he once was. So he found a merchant who was selling masks and purchased every one there. Uncle laughed when Zuko opened the package and saw hundreds of masks inside. Zuko, on the other hand, wasn't too thrilled with the idea of having so many masks around. Sure, his Uncle was trying to make Zuko feel better, but it wasn't working.
That is, until he saw one mask hidden at the very bottom of the box. Zuko knew exactly what it was without touching it, yet he still had to. The blue face haunted him, the evil smirk called to him. So the Fire Lord kept the mask hidden away in his private room, away from everyone else, while the rest of the masks were on display in his library. It was for Uncle's sake they were on displayed, but everyone called the room the "mask room" instead of the library and said it was Zuko who wanted them, who wanted more masks.
Months later, he knew he needed a break from it all an

She was if simply said, breathtakingly gorgeous. But Sokka never spoke of anything simply, and nothing about her was simple in the least anyhow.
First sight, and in love.
Her pitch-black hair was pulled into a high bun, speckled with diamonds that sparkled as she turned her head, reminding him of the night sky adorned with the brightest of stars. In contrast her skin was pale and as perfect as the marble, if only she was sculpted and he wasn't in on the secret. She stood tall by posture, but short in her stance, though if this made her feel any weakened she didn't show it. Her eyes were nearly as colorless as her skin, though he didn't notice.
All he saw, the smile her lips curved into. All he heard, the ring of her laugh. The warmth of her cheeks, he longed to know.
Sokka stepped forward from the crowd, wondering how to pull her away from the group of suitors that crowded her. A new song began to play as couples took the floor, but the men around her still grew thicker
ZW: LegendaryShe walked away from him and waited by the shore for him. Removing the mask covering her face, she let the tears flow from her eyes. She could hear him in the background, sitting by the rocks, crying. Part of her told her to go help him, to comfort him, but she couldn't bear to do that at that moment. Even if she knew he was breaking down.ZW: Legendary4 years ago in Drama More Like This
Turning back to face him, she saw his face in his hands and his body shake from the tears that fell from his eyes, despite the fact it was a dark night. She could almost feel his heartbreak radiating off of him, almost hear his soul being crushed into a million little pieces to be thrown across the sea, and almost taste the tears that fell from his eyes.
She should be there for him, she knew she should be, yet she couldn't bring herself to stand there with him. To her, it was too much to think about. To be there for him, to support him when he needed it the most. Maybe it was because she knew too well how it was and she couldn't relive it, even if sh
ZKW-BoundAs hard as she tried, she couldn’t break free. Her arms and legs were tied tight and no matter how she moved, they wouldn’t budge. She couldn’t even bend. She was stuck and she couldn’t call for help since her mouth was gagged. All she could do was wait for him to come back and find out what he would do to her. She didn’t have to wait long as the door opened and her capturer stood in the doorway.ZKW-Bound2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“Don’t bother trying to break free,” he said as he walked towards her.
She tried to be strong and brave, but the truth was, she was terrified. The important thing was to not show her fear. She held her head high, to show his words didn’t mean a thing to her.
“Trying to be strong won’t work here.” He grabbed her chin. “You’ll break down and give me exactly what I want.”
She was powerless against him as he ripped her clothes off of her. She had to admit it was hard to stay strong when she was exposed and he

There was no surprising her. If she didn't feel it in the earth, or sense it in the air, then there was a sixth sense she told no one about.
She just knew.
Of course, that couldn't stop him from trying. He would do anything just to try to make her jump, if only for payback of all the times she had startled him. After all, it was well deserved.
He would jump up from behind her just before she bended his butt halfway across the nation, present her with gifts she could guess before so much as touching the bag, and even try new unspeakable bending moves that bored her to tears.
But he never stopped trying.
That surprised her most of all.
"Toph?" Zuko cleared his throat before speaking, wringing his hands as he thought over each move. Everything had to go perfectly, or otherwise she'd call him out on his plans.
They were both dangling their legs from a thick cheery blossom branch, the height nerving to the short earthbender, though she would never admit that having Zuko by her sid

"Katara, what are you doing out here in the dark?" he asked.
She shrugged and said nothing. He waited for a response or her to acknowledge him more than a shrug, but nothing came. He didn't mind the silence too much as he was used to it, though the silence with her was a different thing. "It's so dark out here, I'm surprised you can see much of anything."
He started to light a fire with his hand, but she covered his hand up before the light was strong. "Don't Zuko."
"Why not? I just said it's dark. I'm trying to give us light."
"No. You're taking away the light from the stars. It's not much, but it's beautiful to watch. It reminds me of home and how I used to watch the stars."
He listened to her and joined her in watching the night sky. He saw the star

It was strange how something so simple required constant attention and repetition. Keep breathing, keep breathing. No matter how many times it was said, it didn't seem to register. Or maybe it did and Katara just wanted to give up now.
This wasn't the first time she had to remind herself to breathe again. Though she thought she knew what it was like to stop breathing when her mother died or when her father left, the real first time she had to remind herself to breathe again was with Zuko. When she saw the lightning come for her, her heart stopped. When she saw him dash in front of her, she couldn't breathe anymore. When she thought he was dead, she didn't want to live anymore. It wasn't until she heard Zuko call her name did she allow herself to breathe again. That should have been the last time, but it wasn't.

ZKM-SublimeThe first time he saw her bloodbend, he was mesmerized. How could someone, who appeared so weak, control a person the way she did? How was she able to do that in the first place? How did she learn that? In a short few months she had gone from hardly being able to do a simple waterbending trick to control a person. Impressive didn't even begin to describe it.ZKM-Sublime2 years ago in Drama More Like This
To top it off, she was a powerful healer. He didn't ask for her to heal him, but she offered. Sometimes, like when he practiced with Aang or Sokka, she didn't ask, she just went up to him and healed him, mumbling something about 'stupid boys'. He didn't take the healing for granted, like Sokka did. He appreciated it and he didn't take stupid risks knowing she'd be there.
When the riots started, he was worried for her. He really shouldn't have been – she'd proven herself as a powerful bender several times over – but it was his nature to. Not to mention, she was the girlfriend to the Fire Lord and a water tribe citizen. Two things go
