Rating: T for strong themes
A/N: All the chapters now are set between ATLA and ALOK before Lin was born so the focus will be on the changes in their lives and their relationship. This prompt was fun to write (although I'm not sure if my attempts were successful) and I also learned a new term! The week ended a long time ago, but I will still finish this project nonetheless.

Day Six: Loose Cannon
Loose cannon: an unpredictable or uncontrolled person who is likely to cause unintentional damage.
Toph bit back an unwanted sob. She would not be weak now not now, not ever. Her fingers traced the deep scars that covered the skin she grew to love. Not too soft or too rough, the warm skin under her fingers told stories of battles. It was the skin of a warrior, just like hers. But she couldn't touch that skin now. Not yet, since the blood from the most recent an
TOKKA Week 2012: Day 6They'd been at the bar for several hours now. Katara and Aang had left a while back to return to their home on Air Temple Island. Zuko and Mai, who had been visiting Republic city, declined the offer to go out for drinks after dinner. That left Toph with a pretty drunk (and getting steadily drunker) Sokka. The timing couldn't have been more perfect for this spontaneous get together. A few days prior her parents had arrived in the city after several letters had been passed between them and their daughter. Things seemed to be getting better and Toph felt it was time for them to meet their one year old granddaughter. They even offered to watch her for the evening so Toph could spend time with her friends away from work and without worry.TOKKA Week 2012: Day 61 year ago in Romance More Like This
Now that everyone had gone though, the earth bender felt a bit nervous. Her feelings for Sokka over the years were turbulent, to say the least. She loved him, she hate
TOKKA 2012: Day 5She shouldn't be out here and she knows it. It's been nearly two years since the end of the war, but things were still hectic and this place was still dangerous.

No. She couldn't let that bother her now. She was on a mission and she refused to go home empty handed. It was her fault anyway. Why he lost something so precious to him. She'd bring that sword back to him or die trying. Iroh had kindly brought her out here this morning and she'd spent all day walking along this wasteland using her earth bending to seek out that special sword but to no avail.
The air was getting cooler and she could assume that the giant "yellow" (whatever that was) ball in the sky that everyone talked about was going down. Feeling tired and a bit hungry, Toph stopped for the
TFU-TW2012-Lost"Haha! I got you mom!" Toph pretended to trip wildly as her small son sent a small bit of rock underneath her feet. She fell on her back with a loud thump and remained motionless. She felt her three-year-old edge up to her slowly. He touched her then quickly shied away, checking to see if she was conscious. Then he got worried. "Mom? Mom? Are you okay?" He began to shake her shoulder softly and then more violently.TFU-TW2012-Lost1 year ago in Romance More Like This
"Hakoda, what's wrong?" Sokka walked up to stand next to his wife and son. Hakoda stood and looked up at his father his face the picture of misery.
"Mom tripped on a rock that I earth bent and now she won't get up!" Toph could feel her husband trying not to laugh.
"How about this," Sokka said while kneeling down next to his eight-year-old son, his face solemn, "Try blowing on her face. That's known to work." Hakoda sighed,
"I don't think it'll work this time dad, but I'll try I guess." Hakoda crouched next to his mother's motionless figure and began to blow on her face, no s
TOKKA 2012: Day 3"Excuse me, my good fellows." The two policemen in front of him stopped immediately and spun around to meet the voice. Two arms shut up in a salute, backs straight and eyes to the front. Sokka chuckled lowly. "At ease, at ease." Toph must've really trained them well. Or scared the living daylights out of them. Sokka likes to think it was a good mixture of both. "I was wondering if you two know where I might be able to find Chief Bei Fong?"TOKKA 2012: Day 31 year ago in Romance More Like This
"Councilman S-" the older looking of the two started.
"Just 'Sokka' if you will."
"Um, alright. Sokka sir, the chief left a little early today."
"Right, sir, not too long after lunch." chimed in the younger second.
Sokka raised an eyebrow. Admittedly, that was his exact reason in finding the metal bender. He was planning on telling her to go home and rest. She had been working much too hard and too long

A/N: Thank you all for the feedback! These shots happen all post-series and before ALOK. I don't know if Lin is Sokka's daughter or not, nor am I saying she is. Only the creators can do so. I'm just content on taking my portrayal of them. Regardless of her parental lineage, Lin is indeed a badass character. She will be appearing in this and the next chapter as their daughter.

Day Two: Parents
"You're what?" Sokka asked, completely flabbergasted.
The warrior's wide blue eyes only served to fuel her anger. Toph sighed impatiently at her (not so) long time boyfriend. The black-haired girl glared at Sokka with her unseeing eyes. Sometimes she wondered why in the heck she loved the fool.
"Pregnant, Sokka. I'm pregnant!" Receiving no reaction from him, Toph rambled on. "You know, knocked up? With the bread in he oven?" Still no reaction, she could feel with her feat.

"TOPH!!" There was a pounding of feet and Toph burst into the room.
"What?! What is it?" She asked.
"How do I make it stop?" Sokka was standing next to a crib holding a wailing baby. He made an amusing picture, Sokka wasn't holding the baby normally, he wasn't cradling the child in his arm. But he was holding it out, far away from him with straight arms as if to kept the baby as far from his body as possible. Toph couldn't see the look of terror on his face, but she could tell that he was completely incompetent when it came to holding babies.
"Have you never held a baby before?"
"I've never had to before!" The baby was squirming so much that Sokka was in danger of dropping her. Toph smiled and took the baby from Sokka gently and almost immediately, she quieted and became calm.
"How did you DO that?" Sokka asked, shocked.
"Sokka, you've got to hold them right, if you don't they're uncomfortable and feel like they're in danger." She grinned mischievously, "I didn't realize
Tokka- Shakespeare Why did I even bother coming to this party? I think to myself as I walk in the open front door. This new kid - What's his name? Zuko? whatever- has a nice house. It's like a palace.Tokka- Shakespeare3 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I look around the living room, glancing at people I've seen around school but don't really know.
And then I see him.
I've seen him around school. His eyes are such a beautiful shade of blue, like the ocean. His skin a light brown, almost like a tan. And his hair is a dark shade of brown.
I shake my black bangs out of my green eyes. I look down at my outfit to make sure it looks okay, just in case he looks at me. Green tank top that shows a stip of my pale white stomach, and black skinny jeans. Normal sneakers that are good for skateboarding. Now I know why I came here. In case he was here.
He looks up, and straight at me. I look down at my feet and feel a blush spread across my face. What are you doing? Toph Bei Fong doesn't blush!
I look back up at him, and see he's excusing him

Harry stared at the new teacher who sat with Snape. He was unsure who felt more awkward, Snape who stared at his plate, fork digging into the wood of the staff table, or Holmes who obsessively looked at his phone every 3 seconds and wasn't eating anything but rather spending his time looking around the Great Hall. The two did not talk or look at each other but rather just sat awkwardly.
"Harry, stop staring." Hermione whispered sharply at him, but it was too late, both professors caught him at the exact same moment. Harry looked down at his plate, which remained full of untouched food. Harry looked at Hermione.
"I thought Snape taught Apothicarian Studies " He muttered before eating a little ham.
"He does Well did, Professor Holmes obviously took over that position." Hermione said, "I can't believe he is teaching. Last I heard he was living as a muggle and didn't want to be bothered."

Magic and Mischief Part 7Sherlock knew his friend was very angry with him but he also knew that John would follow the plan. John ran his fingers through his hair in frustration. He was doing better in potions thanks to Sherlock's suggestions and had no desire to go back to being the class idiot. But if it stopped more kids from vanishing he'd have to do it.Magic and Mischief Part 71 year ago in Drama More Like This
Sherlock on the other hand was breezing through his potions class and while Snape was clearly wary of him since their encounter he had to grudgingly admit that Sherlock was the best at potions, he'd seen since... well since himself. Someone with a true affinity for the art.
Sherlock smirked to himself as he watched the potions master nod appreciatively at his finished potion. Not only had he finished first, he could tell that his was the best. The potion was suppose to be a bright fuchsia and smell like mint. Around him he was seeing shades of purple and red but not the right mix of the two and couple of smelled vile. He wasn't sure what it smelled like but

Once again, they would be having a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, which they had a completely new set of books to buy for. To add to that, both boys would be taking up new classes this year, a prospect John found exciting.
'Arithmency? Ancient Runes? Aren't those supposed to be really hard?'
Sherlock shrugged. 'They sounded interesting. More so than Care of Magical or how stupid Divination sounds...well, sorry, you're taking that, but still.' Sherlock tilted his head. 'And Muggle Studies would've been a waste of time for both of us, so...'
John shrugged. Then he looked at Sherlock. 'But you are taking Care of Magical Creatures.'
'Just because it's boring doesn't mean it doesn't have it's uses.' He smiled at John.
John grinned back, just glad every moment that Sherlock was happy. He'd hated seeing his friend so hurt this summer and not been able

John walked into his new Primary School. After his father left his mother got really angry and moved. So now he was standing in front of his new school with his older sister, Harriet, dropping him off. “Okay, Kid. Mom’s picking you up around 2. Try to make friends.” With that, she went into her car and drove off.
John was extremely nervous about this. Everything was new to him. Even though he was only in his first year of primary school, he started here the beginning of the fourth quarter. Everybody knew each other all ready. John looked around the playground he was dropped off at. Apparently, they let the kids play outside until classes start. He saw some kids playing on the slide, some on the swings, and some on the monkey bars. As he looked around a bit more, he saw one kid sitting in the sand pit all alone.
John walked over to the pit and sat next to him. The boy sat there, hands folded like he was praying, but his eyes were open. His black curls falling in front
Missing Piece Chapter 15The television had proved itself unworthy a distraction to Sherlock. There were enough things to point out, but nothing challenging enough to keep his mind focused on for a longer period of time. It wasn’t beneficial for keeping his thoughts away from John when the good doctor was sitting between Sherlock and his distraction of choice.Missing Piece Chapter 157 months ago in Romance More Like This
Soon Sherlock’s gaze clung to John’s figure on the armchair and he fell silent. Keeping his mind focused on the vacant babbling on the soap while the cause of his disturbed feelings was there, almost right in front of him was impossible. John seemed content watching that stuff and the pain killers obviously worked, so it couldn’t hurt to engulf himself in figuring out what exactly it was that had made him fall in love.
There had to be at least some valid reasons. John was special and unique in Sherlock’s life, so much he knew. He was his only friend, the only person that bore his moods and one of the few people
Missing Piece Chapter 14The pain had mostly subsided due to the painkillers, only a constant throbbing reminded John of his wounds. Some soap was on the telly, but the good doctor wasn’t paying attention to it. Though John looked at the screen, he only saw the flickering movement of the figures, too caught up in his own thoughts to listen to it.Missing Piece Chapter 147 months ago in Romance More Like This
Sherlock had flung himself onto the couch. At the beginning he had scoffed at the people on screen, making brickbat remarks and taking apart the plot and pointing out it flaws, even then Sherlock’s appalled incredulousness over all that dullness had been missing. Halfway through the show Sherlock had fallen silent and started to get fidgety, while practically staring a hole through John, who was sitting in his armchair.
This behavior wouldn’t alarm John, would it not be for the fact that something had been off about the consulting detective since he had come back from the kitchen. When Sherlock had given him a cup of tea, he had looked everywhere but
