The two figures moved among the shadows of the night, seen by none but the moon and the stars.
The taller one led, silently picking his way through the trees, looking for the best place to see, yet not be seen. The shorter one followed, barefoot, waiting for his signal.
The leader put his back against a tree and gave a soft whistle to the other. She crouched low, almost crawling to meet him. He looked over his shoulder into the clearing beyond. There was a small group of men there, quietly mulling around a cluster of tents. They all seemed to be settling down for the night.
How many? he whispered to her.
She tapped her foot on the ground twice. Thirteen.
He nodded. Hardly seems fair, does it?
When is it ever fair? she asked, grinning. So whats the plan, plan guy?

Surrounded by thousands of complete strangers (the vast majority of them buffoons), disregarding the reek of sweat that filled the arena, and making absolutely no effort to feign even the slightest interest in the action in the ring, the princess of the Northern Water Tribe experienced an epiphany.Boleska: Facing the Facts1 year ago in Romance More Like This
The truth was that Eska did not and had never had any particular use for people. She was more or less unconcerned with them. People reached out to others for companionship, for affection and love, or to gain something material they could not get otherwise. Eska lacked none of these things. She had Desna, her other half, her me-not-me, and they were complete in and of themselves. Why should she- why should they- bother with anyone else? Their material needs were provided for, and even if they were to find themselves bereft of the comforts with which they had been surrounded, they were extremely capable in their own right and would not l

Just because it was a foregone conclusion, that didn't mean that Ozai couldn't still glorify in his victory.
A month after he turned sixteen, Ozai was told by his mother, the Lady Ilah, that he had been betrothed to Ursa of Yukuefumei. It was explained that the marriage was significant for various reasons, both political and personal. The Outer Islands had, over the course of the War with the Earth Kingdom, drifted into a kind of sovereignty, with some of the more obscure islands no longer even bothering to send tax tributes to the Fire Lord. Yukuefumei was a cultural leader amongst the Outers, even boasting a Noble presence in its denizens, and by joining a prominent member to the Royal Family, was declaring allegiance to the Fire Lord and reminding the other islands of their true loyalty. This, it was explained to Ozai, was his father's canny and subtle way of reestablishing control over the Outers, without wasting any resources that could better be applie
His GirlsIt had been all of three hours since Asami had given birth to Michima. The process had been long - a little too long, considering she was already two weeks passed her due date - and exhausting, but both mother and child made it through the delivery smoothly. Bolin hadn’t been present for the delivery, as he had gotten himself kicked out of the room for getting in the doctor’s way too much, but as soon as he heard his daughter cry, he bolted into the room faster than Pabu when someone drops food on the floor. He nearly got himself kicked out again for that, but it was worth it to see his daughter in his wife’s arms for the first time.His Girls2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Now that Michima was finally here, there was finally at least a little time to relax. Asami was asleep in her hospital bed, tired after the long hours of labor and delivery, and in the chair next to her, Bolin was focused on the baby girl that was fast asleep in his arms.

Toph held her bangs out of the way as she retched again. This had been occurring for a while now, but she refused to notify anyone of her illness. She was the chief of police, and therefore had a responsibility to put her own needs aside for the sake of the city.
Annoyance burned through her veins when she heard a knock on her door. Ignoring the unease that still resided in her stomach, she made her way to the front of her modest dwelling. When she opened the door, Katara was smiling at her. The waterbending master stroked her protruding abdomen.
"Hey, Toph. Going to the council meeting today?"
"Yup. I was just getting ready." Another wave of nausea flooded her consciousness. "Excuse me a minute."
Katara frowned as her friend rushed down a hallway and out of sight. Her concern grew when she heard Toph vomiting in the other room. She entered Toph's home and joined her in the bathroom just as she was washing off her face.

The first time through, he allied with his brother.
Ozai hadn't always known he was destined for greatness. He had always thought well of himself, as befitted royalty, but with role models like his father and older brother running around, who wouldn't feel a little healthy inadequacy? Still, that all changed when Ozai was fifteen, on the day he first harnessed the power of lightning-bending. He was younger than both Iroh and Fire Lord Azulon had been, the first time he'd done it, and that realization gave Ozai an inkling that he might just be better than everyone else after all.
He dedicated himself to his training, both physically and mentally. He learned the ways of the court and the battlefield, of alliances and death duels. Always, he worked on his lightning. By the time his brother Iroh returned from Ba Sing Se, Ozai could generate the 'cold fire' faster than anyone alive (or even dead, in father's case). The price of that mastery was a certain sense of de

Summary: Mako witnesses Korra playing with baby Rohan and realizes that he wants a future with her.
Mako walked into the dorms after a long day at work. Tenzin had told him that working was unnecessary, but the young fire bender felt that he needed to help cover the costs of both him and his brother living there and weekly set money on the Air bender's desk. The dorms were silent as he padded up the stairs towards his room, but the silence was soon breached with the high pitch scream of the baby, followed by a hearty laught from the Avatar.
He found them on the floor of the sitting room, oblivious to him watching her she laid on her back with the baby held above her. Korra broug

She was pretty sure Bolin knew that she was in a mood and wanted to be alone. Spirits she'd seen Mako go into a "mood" at times and Bolin would just brush it off as Mako being Mako and it was probably a firebender thing.

The war was over, but there was still unrest. Ozai had been tried and executed, but there were still war criminals to bring to justice. So Team Avatar made it their mission to seek them out and take them alive if possible.
At the moment, it was just Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph and Appa. Zuko couldn't go with them, unable to pull himself away from his challenging leadership role. Momo stayed with Zuko as a token that the family's separation wasn't permanent.
They were flying over a large expanse of rain clouds, Sokka at Appa's head. The Water Tribesman loved to steer, but Toph wished he would sit in the saddle with her more often. She'd never admit it out loud, but he was one of the coolest people she knew, and probably the person who understood her best.

First day of high school always seems to be the toughest for most teenagers because they have no idea what's in store for them; especially for Katara. She's a freshman and she's so nervous it looked like she would faint; sometimes she hated being different, and going to a new school was harder because of it. Still, despite her unease, she tried to make herself presentable. Her chocolate colored hair was in a braid that went down to her back, caramel colored skin and deep blue eyes. Katara wore her mother’s necklace that had a wave cresting against rocks. It was the only thing of her mother that she had. Her mom was murdered when Katara was 8 and her brother, Sokka, 9; things have been hard when Kya died, but somehow they, her family, had gotten through it. Still, sometimes the sadness from the loss would be too much. Sokka probably took it the hardest, since he blamed himself for her death. Her brother is a sophomo

To look at the "official" maps of the Avatar's world, one would think that the fastest way from Ba Sing Se to the Capitol of the Fire Nation would be to sail East. In truth, a vast ocean stretches between the two, dotted with small islands. Few larger than Tasmania, the largest, Loh'Kia, is half the size of New Zealand. These islands, the reefs surrounding them, and the vast ocean are home to the Ocean Tribes.
The Great Ocean is highly heterogeneous. Some regions are over deep abyssal trenches. Others are shallow seas with treacherous reefs like the Carribean. This makes navigating the Great Ocean extremely hazardous to those unfamiliar with it. These natural defenses have kept the Ocean Tribes safe from outside invasion for centuries.
The Ocean Tribes have kept fairly isolated from the rest of the world. In the far past, conflicts with both the Fire Nation and the E

Since Aang had come into her life, everything had changed. Daily life in the Southern Water Tribe had been busy, always busy, but it had been stagnant. It was the same thing every day with no end in sight. But then, they were lucky to get by that way, ignored by the Fire Nation now that they believed they had all of their benders. Katara supposed she should be grateful for those few years of peace.
She'd always assumed that when one of the younger boys of the tribe got older, she'd get married, despite their age difference. But now now she had options. She glanced over to where Aang slept. Yes, her options had certainly expanded before her very eyes. Granted, he was two years young

Sokka carefully carved away at the piece of jade in his hand, being sure not to take off too much with each stroke of his tool. It wasnt easy though, considering it was the middle of the night and he was trying to be very quite about it. He heard a rustling behind him as one of his friends stirred, and quickly hid his work behind him. He turned around to see if they were still asleep, and was greeted by the sightless eyes of Toph looking right at him.
Sokka, she said sleepily, What are you doing awake?
Uhh Looking at the stars? he replied, hoping she was too tired to tell he was lying.

What he didnt realise is that Toph was only pretending to be asleep; she was watching what he was doing with great interest. She wondered why he was putting so much care in

“I kind of expected you to already have a plan,” she said, then took a sip of her tea, the drink seeming to warm her entire being.
Sokka continued to glare at his maps. “Well I knew whatever plans we made would have to change once we got here.”
