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?

A Parody of "A Visit from Saint Nicholas" by Light-Eco-Sage
'Twas the night before the Finale, when all through the house
Not an Avatard was stirring, not even their spouse;
Their alarms were set for the Final Battle,
Their families would soon have enough of their prattle;
The shippers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of coupling danced in their heads;
Other Avatards slept, but some would not give in
The Shipping War continued, as it always had been.
These shippers, so dedicated to their couple,
They yelled to other shippers "They're an un-couple!"
They haunted the internet, flooded fan-sites
They uploaded millions and millions of bytes
And finally, the day came, the Finale!
Perhaps the show could mend the Shipper's valley.
But, no, it only seems to get so much worse
"No! How could Bryke do this?" some Shippers would curse
The show was over now, Kataang had won
But the Shipping War had only just begun
Kataangers had canon, and cuteness, and fluff
Practice: TokkaDespite the fact that he had lived his entire life in the South Pole, Sokka's favourite time of year was summer in the Earth Kingdom. There was something about the air during the summer in the outskirts of Ba Sing Se. Not too hot, and the breeze was refreshing and cooling without bringing a chill with it. The war had been over for seven years and peace was the norm. Sure, there were the occasional rebel uprisings that had to be quelled, but for the most part, his life was good.Practice: Tokka5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
On that particular afternoon in late summer, Sokka sat in the grass, leaning back on his elbows, watching the few clouds in the sky. His wife of less than a year, Toph, lay beside him, staring at nothing, as per usual. Aang and Katara were nearby, acting like newlyweds, also as usual. Their two-year-old son ran through the meadow, pretending to fly like his father.
Sokka sat up straight. "Yes, Tenzin?"

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

Twas the night before Solstice, and throughout the whole city
Not an Equalist stirred—it was really a pity
For Korra was bored from all the inaction
She’d been missing her fights with the civil rights faction.
But the airbender kids were all snug in their beds,
While visions of Solstice gifts danced in their heads.
And with Pema asleep, and Tenzin in meditation,
There seemed to be nothing worth Korra’s anticipation.
But then from the sky there was heard a great bang,
That seemed to come out o’er the statue of Aang.
Korra scanned up above for the source of the sound,
And hoped to see fighter planes flying around.
Korra saw the full moon, the big shiny ol’ rock,
And wondered what happened to poor Noatak.
When she spotted a man, to whom a girl clinged,
And who shouted out loud “Zhu Li, now! Do the thing!”
As his mechanical wings spread outward so quick,
She knew in a moment it must be Varrick.

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

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

The warm cup between Toph’s hands was a soothing contrast to the brisk nearly-winter air around them. The sounds of the busy tea shop hummed, music to her ears. Sokka sat in front of her, studying his maps closely. The silence between them was familiar, cordial, peaceful. Toph almost hesitated to break it.
“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.”
She rested her hand on her belly and leaned back in her chair. “What do you mean by that?”
Sokka looked up at Toph, who had one eyebrow raised. “I just didn’t know how he was going to react.” He paused while Toph’s suspicion subsided. “I think we should just go back the way we came,” he said, suddenly coming to a conclusion. “I want to avoid the

It was a rather lazy day. Rain poured outside, and the Gaang was stuck inside for the time being.
Sokka was polishing his new sword, strong arms delicately swabbing the glistening blade. Though his face showed the utmost concentration, he was hardly into it.
Toph was half-heartedly picking at her toes, occasionally stopping to scratch an armpit or insert a smelly finger up her nose. Occasionally, she sighed in an exasperated way.

Toph made an indignant sound and crossed her arms. "I have that here. And in case you haven't noticed i DON'T want it. What makes you think i'll want it there?"
Aang felt like he was loosing this argument but didn't want to give up just yet.

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.
