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?

Boleska: Facing the FactsIt hit her at a pro-bending match, of all places. 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 Facts2 years 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.

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: Tokka4 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?"

She couldn't meditate because whenever she did Avatar Aang either chided her for not getting airbending soon enough or asked her to tell Tenzin something for him or tried to suggest other ways to try to quell the anti-bender rebellion peacefully.

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. Bolin joked that you knew when it was going to rain based on Mako's mood: grumpy was just cloudy, broody and silent meant rain.

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.

Still fairly disorientated, he halfheartedly looked around, trying to make sense of his surroundings. His vision still blurred, he turned his head and managed to make out three blobs huddling together on the other side of the room. Their voices sounded familiar, but he couldn’t pinpoint who they belonged to, or make out what they were saying. The only words he managed to pick out were “Hide”, “Wait”, “Tell”, and “Happy”. Everything else was gibberish.
As his vision slowly came into focus, one of the not-so-blobby blobs looked over at him. Their conversation suddenly halted.
ATLA - Ocean TribeOcean Tribes - A Fan-Created Culture in the Avatar:Last Airbender WorldATLA - Ocean Tribe8 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
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

"You look lovely tonight."
Though her eyes were closed, Toph lay awake on a blanket of soft grass. It was a warm night, so she hadn't bothered to raise her stone tent. Sokka slept a few feet away from her, to the left. On the other side of him were Katara and then Aang. She could tell by their heart beats that they were all asleep. So then, who was he talking to?
There was a rustling sound and she felt him rolling towards her. Toph's heart leapt at the thought of sleeping so close to him. She held her breath when his arm flopped over her waist and pulled her closer. She knew that he was asleep and acting out of habit. She had felt him do this with Suki in the past but Suki was back in Kyoshi, they had dropped her off a few weeks ago.

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.

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

Fire Nation summers were just way too hot, that's why Aang preferred staying in the South Pole for those three mouths it had nothing to do with the beautiful Water Tribe woman showing too much skin at the beaches in front of all those guys nope, nothing at all.
Sometimes, he'd wake up early on purpose, just to watch the yawning sun dance in her hair and across that flawless face.
Katara giggled and threw another piece of clothing at her boyfriend, who grumbled and left the room to change for the seventh time; she just couldn't get enough of the way the Airbender looked in Water Tribe colours.

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 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.

While visions of coupling danced in their heads;

He turned around to see if they were still asleep, and was greeted by the sightless eyes of Toph looking right at him.
