Every part of his body throbbed with a dull pain, from his fingertips to his toes - it spread to even his eyelids; stubbornly refusing to open as if they had been sewn shut. His clothes were damp and there was a chill descending down his spine, yet he lacked the energy to sit up and inspect the cause of the problems.
Or was he already sat up? He felt too disorientated to tell.
A sharp snuffling sensation brushed against the boy’s frozen cheek, suddenly jolting him awake. He rose with a sharp gasp, cold air filling his lungs. They burned as they contracted with each gasping breath of crisp oxygen inhaled by the rigid boy. The frightened culprit – no more than a simple squirrel – darted away to the safety of a nearby birch tree and the former pharaoh relaxed slightly, pulse still drumming in his ears.
With a groan, Yami sat up, his muscles flexing and spasming with the effort. His fingers combed through his unruly tri-colour

Zuko paused for a moment. Was he really going to risk his marriage for a girl he met seven years ago? Was he really going to put everything he had worked for in danger just for the one in a million chance of meeting her again?
"So what is it going to be?" repeated Aang.
"Fine I'll tell Father tonight. If all goes well, we leave first thing tomorrow "
Hours passed and the sky grew darker but the festivities in the Fire Nation Palace were far from being over. Zuko tried to avoid Mai and the party guests as much as possible. He never even wanted this engagement. Had it not been part of his duty as a prince, it would never have even entered his mind. To get away from the crowd, he and Aang decided to take a walk through the town. Wearing his cloak to disguise himself, he and Aang quietly snuck out the door.
"Zuko?" an elderly voice said. "Where are you going?"
Zuko turned around and saw his uncle waiting for him. The prince ex

Katara lowered her arms, releasing the ice daggers where they hovered. She glared at the man on the ground before her. He was pathetic. Sniveling, begging her to take his own mother as revenge. His heart was cold and full of malice. There wasn't a single once of care for anyone but himself. How could a person live like this? She turned and walked away in the direction where Appa had been left.
She heard steps behind her, but didn't slow or acknowledge the presence of the one behind her. She'd always wondered about the type of person who could do what that man had done. She climbed on Appa and waited for Zuko to follow. He stared up at her from the ground for a moment, an indecipherable look in his golden eyes. She cocked an eyebrow at him and he looked down as he climbed onto the saddle on Appa's back.
"Yip yip" she nearly whispered, holding onto the reigns as Appa took off into the air. Once he had gained as much height as he was going to she relaxed, her

I lay there; my chest filled with more pain than I thought was possible, and watched her leave. There was so much I had wanted to tell her, to explain. Now I wouldn't ever have that chance.
"Smellerbee," I gasped, clutching her arm. "There's a notebook under my bed, please make sure Katara gets it."
"I promise," she said through her tears. I've never seen her cry before. Is it wrong that I'm happy she's crying for me? I know at least two people will miss me. I slowly reached up and brush the tears away, smudging her war paint. I smiled weakly; she's going to hate me for doing that.
"Don't think of me like this, okay? Remember me how I used to be. Be strong," I whispered and closed my eyes for the last time.
"Katara!" Aang cried running towards her. "I've got something for you."
"For me? What is it?" she asked looking up from the dinner she was preparing.
"Well, you know how I was in the Earth Kingdom right? Well I as passing through Taku on my way to-"

Zuko rubbed his temples in an attempt to banish the heard of ostrich-horses that were stampeding across his skull. If someone had warned him how difficult this job was, he would've been more insistent that his uncle take back his birthright. Unfortunately, the retired general was wiser and cleverer than his nephew and had successfully convinced the teenager to take the throne. Zuko noted that he had yet to exact revenge for that.
He dropped his hands to the desk and tried to read the proposal yet again. The idiotic, traditionalist captain advised requiring all residents of the Fire Nation, who were not native, to carry identification papers at all times. Zuko seriously considered setting it on fire. Instead, he moved it to his "when hog-monkeys fly" pile. The scribes would take those and write appropriate, polite, responses.
He sighed tiredly an

The evening's events will begin at 7 o'clock pm at the Fire Nation Palace. This invite is for you only. No other guests are allowed. We hope to see you there.
Katara looked down at the little piece of paper in her hands. What kind of joke was this? Did they really expect her to go? Her, the princess of the Southern Water Tribe, to go? After everything those bastards had done to her and her people? They desired her presence to see that self centered bastard off?
It would never happen. Even if her damned life depended on it, she wasn't going.
Throwing her hands up in exasperation, she let out a frustrated yell and tossed the delicate invitation to the ground. Bastards wouldn't be able to do anything to get her to go. Nothing. Nothing at all. Her resolve set, she stomped o

"Zuko," Aang pleaded, "I want you to give Katara a romantic evening."
The Fire Lord stared at the Airbender like he had turned into a Sky Bison. "What?"
Aang smiled. It was that disturbing, 'Can't we all be friends?' smile. "I have a hot date tomorrow, and you should invite Katara over and give her a great time."
Zuko blinked repeatedly. He understood each of the words, but he must have been missing the overall meaning, because what he heard didn't make any sense. Fortunately, Zuko had a reaction ready. "What?"
Sokka looked over from where he was painting at Zuko's desk. The three were in Zuko's private study, in the heart of the Palace, ostensibly to hang out as friends. "Isn't tomorrow Flames of Passion Day?"
Aang nodded. "That's why I think Katara deserves a nice time. I mean, we were both okay after I-" He glanced at Sokka.

Or crying when everybody else smiles
I go from wanting to stay in bed forever
To wanting to run directionless for miles
Normality just feels like silent floorboards
And is something I most definitely fear
See I need to creak every once in a while
You won’t understand but I like being weird
Talking when everybody else is silent
Being deathly quiet in a maelstrom of noise
As I decide if I’ll be your friend today
But I promise that you are not just a toy
Normality just feels like empty nightscapes
And is something I most definitely fear
I need the stars to spell out my last name
Don’t try to understand me, I’m just being weird
Regressing to when I was a child again
Trying to forget how I learnt to be scared
Thinking how much I miss the simplicity
And how for this nonsense I was not prepared
But normality just feels like a life sentence
And is something I most definitely fear

Agni, he hoped that wasn't it; he couldn't live with himself if he had hurt her in any way. That would be a fate worse than death. Groaning lowly, he hoisted himself from his bed and rubbed the back of his neck. He walked to the window of his room and watched as the princess stepped off a ship that was coming on shore.
He thought she was still in her room, he had no idea she would have been leaving last night and returning this morning. He wondered where she went at such an early hour after last night. Maybe something bad happened. Her heart gripping painfully, he threw on a robe an

Katara had been there with her brother, husband and friends all through the creation and establishment of Republic City. She‘d been there for every meeting, every groundbreaking, and still managed to travel back and forth with Aang while he did his Avatar duties. After years or this, especially with her daughter in tow and taking on students, she decided it was time for her to slow down a bit. She weighed her options, and after much thought the water bender decided to step back from politics. Katara felt that she could do the most good on Air Temple Island, helping the Air Acolytes with everyday things, teaching her students, and giving Kya a real place to call home instead of hopping from town to town or village to village all the time. After all, they had built this beautiful home and hadn’t spent very much time there. When Katara realized she was pregnant again she was happy that she had made that decision.
GalateaSometimes, she is my mistressGalatea2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sneaking in through my window and seducing me out of sleep
She keeps me up past sunrise, whispering sweet promises in my ear
Silencing me with her smoldering passion, stripping me until inspiration strikes
She makes me sing, until the sheets are slathered in a thick skin of poetry
Sending shivers up my spine and igniting my senses with her ghostly fingers
She is a lover and a shadow, nowhere to be seen when I wake
Sometimes, she is my psychosis
Suffocating and strong, I can do nothing but submit to her grasp
She seethes, like a snake constricting around me until my sight blurs to smoke
Slowly, she consumes me with sick reverence and searing obsession
She stifles me because she refuses to be restrained, yet I long for her kiss
Severing haggard breaths from my lips, leaving me stunned and aching
She is a succubus and a nightmare, haunting me
Sometimes, she is my saint
Stifling sobs against my shoulder, shaking me until my tears start to fall
She has so much

The night looked breathless behind Republic City’s skyline. It was the ‘Night of the Spirits’ where people all over Republic City dressed their best and respect the spirits with celebration with family and close friends. That night, at City Hall, there was a big gathering scheduled where about everyone was invited. Word was that there was to be music, food, dancing, and a rumored special guest who is planned to speak sometime during the event.
“Ok men.” Chief of Republic City Police, Lin Beifong said as she walked back and forth in front of six officers, all wearing black suits. “I have picked you all personally because of background and experience in cases like these. At tonight’s ‘Night of the Spirits’ masquerade ball, there is a very important guest that will be visiting to speak.

At first it had been painful: having freedom so close, and yet so far. Each night as the moon grew fatter it tugged at her bones with intensified vigour. Freedom, it crooned. Escape!
Now she heard nothing at all.
Korra lay against the far wall of the cell. Her legs were splayed at a comfortable angle, chin to chest, her arms tied tightly behind her back. The rope was thick and strong, as she'd quickly discovered.
It was also annoyingly scratchy.
She was a state: her hair, barely bound, was a tangled mat of blood and grime. A shallow gash in her side glinted evilly in the dimness, accompanied by various bruises and grazes scattered unsparingly over nearly every expanse of available skin. Where there wasn't blood, there was filth.
Korra's head snapped upright, eyes trained to the sound. Footsteps echoed off of the walls of empty cells. Her ears strained as she attempted t
