Bolin and I start climbing down the ladder down to street level. I thank the spirits he's safe and out of the hands of the Equalists. I don't know what I would have done if I'd lost him. I look up for a moment and am surprised to see an Equalist looming over me. Before I can react, he uses his electricity-generating device and sends a current through the metal ladder. Electricity surges through my entire body, making every nerve in my body scream in pain. Unable to control myself, I let go of the rung of the ladder. The electricity has stopped, but my body is still numb as a fall. I feel my back hit the ground with such force that it knocks the wind out of me. Bolin soon drops down beside me with a grunt.
The Equalist drops down, weapon in hand, and Bolin and I immediately snap to attention. I ignore the tingling still plaguing my body and focus more on the oncoming threat. I punch the air, sending flames toward my opponents, b

One year later.
"Hey Mako! Hey Bolin!" Asami exclaimed as she went opened the door, without knocking, and went straight to Bolin's arms.
Bolin graced her with his charming huge smile and held Asami in his arms. "Hello my princess."
"Ugh. Cut the mushy stuff guys. I just had breakfast." Mako scowled at the two lovebirds, who were now laughing.
"Oh, come one Mako. Don't be like that." Bolin started but was the caught off by Asami who was giving the moody firebender her infamous sly fox-like smile. "What's wrong Mako? Jealous of our love for one another?"
Mako rolled his eyes as he dryly responded. "Oh yeah. That's exactly it. I really want to act like a pair of fools who can't keep their claws off each other."
Asami snickered. "Aw. That's too bad. Because I know something you don't know."
"Really? What is it?" Bolin asked as he and his brother raised his eyebrows.
Asami pulled out a light blue envelope. " I got this in the mail today. I think you t
An ImpossibilityMako had come to a conclusion about meditation:An Impossibility3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It was impossible.
He'd been sitting in the pavilion for over five minutes, and he felt even more anxious now than when he started attempting meditation. He opened one eye and peered over at Korra. She didn't seem to be having any problems. Her legs were crossed, her fists lightly touching above her stomach. He closed his eyes again and tried to sit even straighter. How in the world was she clearing her mind? She'd explained it all to him before they sat down, sure, but that didn't help. Not when she was here sitting next to him.
With Korra around, relaxation was impossible.
She was there. Right there. If he stretched out his hand, he'd be touching her. Touching her! And honestly, even if she were further away, even if she wasn't sitting next to him, it would make no difference. He couldn't get her out of his head. Frankly, he hadn't been able to get her out of his head since they met. Ergo, clearing his mind was impossible.
Korra was gor

He'd just come from a rather taxing session of Pro-Bending training with his teammates, and as usual, his mood had turned sour from the moment he'd walked into the gym. It wasn't the fact they had to practice at the crack of dawn because they were rookies that bothered him, nor was it the pressure of the championships hanging over their heads.
No, it was the newest member of the Fire Ferrets that'd been getting under his skin lately, one Avatar Korra.
Now, there were several things that tweaked Mako's nerves, but this girl trumped them all. He'd never met someone quite like her before, so brash and hotheaded and in-your-face. In less than a month she'd managed to come barreling into his life and destroy nearly every ounce of normalcy she could find.
Today's practice had been one of the worst yet. After the fiasco with the Equalists and Bolin being captured, Mako had stepped up the intensity of their team workouts, both for the tournament

Bolin stood in front of the mirror, running his hand from the front to the back of his head again and again. He dipped his fingers in the bowl of water that was set next to him, stuck his tongue out the side of his mouth ever so slightly, and tried again. The annoying bit of hair was swept up with the rest for a brief moment, but within seconds, it fell back onto his forehead.
"Fine!" Bolin growled, pointing a finger at his reflection with squinted eyes. "Be that way!" He shook his head, and the tendril aired out a bit and bounced happily in its rightful place. Bolin spun around and held his arms out, showing off his appearance. "So, what do you think, buddy?"
Pabu looked up, squeaked, and continued munching on a leechi nut.
"Awesome! Lookin' good," he said, turning back to the mirror and admiring his reflection as he stroked his hairless chin. It was strange to see himself like this, in an outfit like this. He'd onl

Location: Southern Water Tribe.
"WE'RE FINALLY HERE!" Bolin announced as he danced around the platform as Asami shook her head biting her lip, trying to not laugh.
"Honestly," Asami started as she stretched her arms. "I was beginning to think we would never get here. I know we left yesterday in the morning but still, felt like forever to get here."
Bolin smiled. "Really? I thought it was pretty fast. Then again I was just talking to a bunch of the Water Tribe shipmates and goofing with them. They are just so outgoing, humble, and funny folks, huh?"
Asami nodded. "Indeed. I was always fascinated with Water Tribe culture ever since I was a little girl. I love their customs, beliefs, and traditions. It's refreshing to be surrounded by entirely different world than the one we live in the city. "
Mako finally was walking down toward the couple a trembling a little. He told himself it was because, like his previous encounter of going to the Southern Wate

Korra shook her head and crossed her arms to emphasize how appalled and against the idea she was that Bolin just suggested. She started to walk away, done with the conversation but her earth bending friend ran to stop her.
He put his hand on her shoulder. "Come on Korra, be open minded about this. We'll make all the money we need for the Championship Match and more. It won't be that bad and how else can we do that?"
"I don't know, but I do know I'd sooner dip myself hot butter and walk on a tightrope over room full of angry Boar-Q-Pine's before I do that." Korra thought about what she said and then frowned. "Hopefully it won't have to come to that "
Bolin smiled but then sighed heavily; his idea wasn't that bad right? Right maybe it was just the way he approached her about it. He replayed the situation in his head quickly.
Bolin ran in the training room and yelled happily, "I got it!"
Leafy Experience. Korra. Korra. Korra. Korra. She was all Mako could think about. He has been arguing with himself, if he should bring Bolin to visit her. He turned to look at Bolin, eating a dumpling and playing with Pabu. He made up his mind, he was going to visit Korra.Leafy Experience.3 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Hey, Bo." Mako said standing up, "Do you want to go to Korra's place?"
Bolin ran to his room and in a matter of seconds he had changed his clothes, "Yeah! Let's go!"
After Mako changed his clothes, they both walked towards the air temple.
"So how come you wanted to visit Korra? huh?" Bolin said nudging and teasing him.
"I wanted to be productive." Mako said.
"Yeah." Bolin said, "Productive with Korra." he laughed. Mako just hid his face because

Korra had learned the basics of probending in two days, it was no easy task but Bolin and I did it. "Night guys, see you In the morning!" Korra yelled as she ran to catch the next boat. Bolin screamed back at her "BYE!", while I just waved. When we couldn't see her we walked to our room.
"Real piece of work isn't she?" Bolin asked me throwing the duffel bag onto the couch. "Yeah, she is, but worth it." I said in reply. Bolin was confused, and took his shoes off. "Says the guy who always yells at her, and fights with her." I looked at Bolin as if I was going to say something, but I didn't. Then Bolin let out a huge gasp. "BIG BRO YOU LIKE KORRA!" he screamed, running all over the apartment with excitement. I let out a sigh and said "I don't like her in that way Bolin. We're not even that good of friends yet..." Bolin slapped me on the back and said "Don't worry big bro, if you need advice just ask me." Bolin winked, and then went upstairs a
Makorra - Scarf"So where'd you get that scarf, anyway?"Makorra - Scarf3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Mako lifted his head wearily, red fabric pooling around his neck again as amber eyes met ocean blue. He could tell she was just trying to change the subject, distract him from the fact that his brother was still out there somewhere, missing and probably terrified.
Never mind that he wouldn't be able to stop thinking about it until Bolin was safe at home, out of the hands of the chi-blockers who'd stolen the last of Mako's family from him.
Spirits, if anything happened to Bolin, innocent, happy-go-lucky Bolin he'd never forgive himself.
"I've had it for a long time," Mako answered Korra's question vaguely, fingers twisting into his scarf, seeking comfort from its familiar material. Just knowing the scarf was there always managed to calm him down, if only for a moment.
"Funny enough I managed to figure that out myself, city boy." Korra's lips curled into a smirk, to which Mako returned the ghost of a smile. "Seriously, where'd you ge

She whizzed past blurs of light, reaching out for somebody, something, nobody at all. Stars. Darkness seeped everywhere, into everything. She cried out but her voice was smothered by the cosmos as she tumbled down, through, into.
Her descent slowed, and her body righted itself, toes making contact with some kind of surface. It was invisible. All was stars and all was dark. She breathed in the colors, heard the shine, tasted home. She looked up and saw herself, huge and beautiful and terrifying, eyes glowing white, brighter than any sun.
"Korra. We finally meet."
She knew that voice. It felt like she was speaking to herself in her own voice, but it was definitely male. Recognizable and unfamiliar all at once. She turned to the speaker. They'd never met, but she knew him. A man stood far from her, his features hazy, but she could make out one thing. A tattooed arrow, brilliantly white.
Korra jolted awake with a soft gasp.

Fate... or SomethingAs he leapt forward, his inner fire building up inside his fist for the final attack, for the win, Mako thought absently how this must have been fate or something. After all, he had been waiting for this moment, and the knowing look of defeat in Tahno's eyes satisfied him immensely.Fate... or Something3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
This is what he'd been waiting for.
Mako had never liked the Wolfbat's waterbender. He was cocky and undeservedly so. But the truth of the matter was that Mako did not like many people, and this was not a new phenomenon, so he had always simply ignored Tahno whenever they passed in the arena or saw each other out. It wasn't that hard to pretend he didn't exist. After Tahno met Korra, however, and spoke to her in that filthy, cocky, condescending way, Mako realized that he didn't just dislike him. He hated him. He truly was disgusted by him and his stupid hair and his smug expression and his weird taunting (flirting?) with Korra and everything.
Korra had handled everything perfectly well of cour
WhiteSummer had hit Republic City with a vengeance.White3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Mako wasn't one to complain, though. After all the time he and Bolin had spent on the streets, he'd come to cherish the heat. A lot of his memory of those years had faded away, but some impressions were sharp. Smells, feelings. He remembered those hard winters they had spent, the two of them cuddling together at night underneath their bridge in the park to get out of the wind as much as they could. Countless nights Bolin would doze off with his head on Mako's shoulder, his teeth chattering so loudly that Mako couldn't sleep.
Awake and on edge, he would stoke the fire with his bending, eyes wary of any shadows.
He spent his time thinking of summer. Of not feeling cold, not feeling scared. Of the food carts rolling around in the streets that he could steal from. Of the bright green leaves and hot sun blazing overhead. Of the warm river that he and Bolin would swim in, the fish nipping at their toes. Of the flowers blooming all through the pa

Mako put his elbow's on his knees to carry his head up. He couldn't blame Korra for not showing up for the championship match, in fact, he deserved this.
"Five minutes left, or you're out." the announcer said.
He looked at the ground, holding his head up with his hands. The shouts from his brother were blurred. He just thought of Korra, he thought of how he would ever make up with her. His brother stopped shouting, he looked at Bolin and saw him looking at the door. Mako followed where he was looking and saw Korra standing at the door with her gear on.
"Hey guys!" she said in her normal attitude, "What are you guys doing here, let's go to the arena!" and she
Just Not In PublicThe first time Mako kissed her in public she thought it was kind of cute. They'd been dating for only a few weeks and really couldn't stop kissing each other so kissing her before she boarded the ferry to Air Temple Island seemed natural.

The second time was at Republic City's annual Founder's Day ball. He'd done it twice then: he kissed her forehead and her lips. She wasn't entirely sure she wanted everyone important to see her kissing her boyfriend. Jinora and Ikki singing about how in love the two of them were didn't help the situation.
The third time, well, they both got caught up in the moment. The Fire Ferrets just won the match that clinched a spot in the Championship for them so kissing Mako in the middle of the arena felt like the right thing to do. She hated seeing the picture of them on the front page of the newspaper the next day. Sh

"So Mako," a man who goes by the name of Shady Shin wraps his arm around him. "Glad to have to some, uh, fresh meat. What made you change your mind." The man's voice is slippery and laced with inner motives. Mako swallows the urge to punch him in the face.
"Need the money."

"Why don't you shut up for once, Shin. We're here to talk business." Two-Toed Ping spreads a map out in front of them.

Another hour passed when Asami, Bolin, and the kids eagerly arrived. The children were already awake upon the pair arriving they were confused why they were being looked after by the sentries and not their parents. At hearing the news, they insisted they go and visit Korra like Tenzin had predicted to Asami instead of going back to sleep.
Upon arrival, the children began to ask Korra a bunch of questions, mostly "how much longer?". Korra laughed when they asked these questions she wanted an answer to them all, too.
Hour after painfully long hour passed, and each time Saiyu checked to see how much more dilated Korra was, it never seemed to go up. She was certainly dilated and it was definitely progressing, albeit excruciatingly slowly. The contractions grew so frequent and violent that Korra swore she was dying, and Mako did, too.
It wasn't until late that evening that it all started to happen. Korra was drifting off in between con

How could it be?
How could she die?
No, it couldn't be.
All these questions and more formed in Korra's head as she analyzed the old woman's still body lying on the bed. When she came home from practicing with Mako and Bolin, this was not the news she expected see. She walked in expecting to hear Tenzin nag and/or explain to her how she was neglecting to meditate. Not see him hovered over his mother's body with red eyes and tear stains on his cheeks. It didn't make sense and Korra refused to believe the water bending legend had passed on.
"No, Tenzin you're making a mistake. She's just sleeping."
Tenzin closed his eyes. "She was Korra, she was."
"She still is!"
The 17 year old was quickly getting upset with Tenzin for acting the way he was when all Katara was doing was resting.
"Korra, calm down." Mako, who stood on the left side of her next to his brother, ordered.
Her teammates had come back to the island with her this time, upon Korra's request

"How long will she need to stay here for?"
"The rest of the week she could start hemorrhaging again... it's completely unpredictable. She can return to the Island after that, but I'd like her to be kept under close watch. We can't have this happen again next time, she won't be so lucky. Also, Tenzin, I must inform you that because of this, the birth will be even more difficult. It could have similar effects to the degree of this anything could happen, but we'll do our best."
"I understand. Thank you, Saiyu."
Korra awoke to two voices conversing somewhere in the room she was in, one of them a familiar, gruff voice and the other a hushed, whispering tone. She kept her eyes closed, a headache splitting through her head, and heard footfalls as one of the two left the room. She suddenly heard more footsteps, some further away, pacing, frantic, quick. Some more then as someone approached her.
"Oh, Korra," she heard the familiar voice say, and

"How long exactly does it take your brother to be back home?" grunted Korra, annoyed at Bolin's prolongation. "He should be here one hour ago!" she pouted and threw her hands in the air. She shifted, so now she laid on the sofa on her stomach, her arms over the edges of it.
"Don't tell me you're never late" Mako rolled his eyes. "He will be back soon. When he goes out, Bolin is always late in the evenings." The girl huffed and said nothing. Although Mako was calm, she could hear a hint of worry in his voice. Yes, his brother was always late, and this situation probably wasn't the first one, yet the boy with the red scarf still cared about his brother.
"I was being late. But now, when the tournament is at hand, we have to do our best! Even if that means training at eleven at night. "

Mako was reluctant to leave Korra and Saki's sides at all, but had to after a while to return home, which was inevitable, and while Saki was able to leave after two more days at the clinic, healthy as could be, Korra was still considerably weak and needed more time to regain her lost strength.
The Firebender didn't want to separate Korra from the one comfort in her life then and couldn't bear to be away from Saki for any longer than a few hours, and so stayed there at the hospital (despite Tenzin's urging and Saiyu's annoyance), looking after the fussy baby while Korra slept, and joining in on admiring her when Korra was awake.
After two weeks passed, Korra was deemed strong enough to leave, but was ordered to refrain from participating in any strenuous physical activity. She may have gotten stronger, but she was not fully healed, and wouldn't be for a while.
Livings arrangements had to be sorted out. Tenzin was not willingly to allow Korra to move in with M

She was too sleepy to feel anything beside distress that she to be there. Now Mako on the other hand, he seemed to be feeling the same way as Korra. He was sitting on the same bench he was yesterday, with tired eyes and his usual frown on.

Korra peered at herself in the mirror, touching at the area that she knew that there was a fifty-fifty chance would be a bulging mass in just a few months. Swallowing nervously, she turned around and shook her head, trying to convince herself that it was not true.
That there wasn't the possibility that she was pregnant.
The idea had only just recently struck the Avatar after a month and a half of sudden, debilitating illness bouts. One second she would be fine, training away with the boys, and the next, she'd be rushing out of the gym to the bathroom. Mako and Bolin had been worried, but she had assured them that it was just a simple, passing sickness she'd be fine soon. And, sure, she got better - it just took too long for her comfort.
The week before, was when Korra really began to accept the possibility of it, dread flooding her veins. At one point, about three weeks ago, Asami and her had been hanging out when the non-bender had speculated if mayb
