"Benders aren't any better than us normal folk," the man said, spitting derisively at Korra's feet. She clenched her hands into fists.
"I know that," she said through locked teeth. She took a deep breath, then tried to settle her first ever Avatar dispute. "Benders and non-benders are a source of balance for the world. The spirituality um it does stuff. I suppose."
The crowd laughed in her face, and Tenzin sighed heavily.
"Okay, I could have done better," she snapped at him. "Look, I'm trying my best, alright?"
"Come back when you got a handle on that, honey," the man said, and they all laughed.
Korra turned on him and fell into her favorite waterbending stance. The crowd took a collective step back, and Korra gave the daring man a hard smile.
"Come on, if you're so tough," she sneered.
"Korra," Tenzin snapped. "Stop this."
"Trying," she replied, not taking her eyes off her new opponent. He hesitated, then shrugged.

Comfort. It's all you needed. Now that your closest friends are gone, you felt alone. You let out a sob, your knees tucked under your chin, with your arms wrapped around them. You didn't want to be alone, you need someone to tell you that it's going to be alright.
"(Y/N)? What's wrong?" your maybe only friend left, Marco. "Oh Marco." you stood up quickly, trying to wipe the tears. Without a word, he took you in his arms. You started crying again, clutching his shirt.
"M-Marco, they're gone. All gone. You're all I have left." you choked out. He shushed you, rubbing circles on your back.
"You're not alone (Y/N), just know that they are watching us from above, taking care of us." he smiled sadly. Marco wasn't just saying this to you, but to himself. Both of you felt the same way.

You looked up from the mirror you stood in front of, brush in hand. Rivaille stood in the doorway, one hand on the door frame, his face blank as usual. He wasn't wearing his normal uniform, instead opting for a button up shirt and black slacks, but still wearing his cravat, you noticed. The thought brought a small smile to your lips.
"Almost" You replied, giving you hair a few more strokes with the brush.
You looked up again, finding your daughter pushing her way into the room from between Rivaille's legs. She wore a simple home spun dress, her dark hair and eyes matched that of her father. She was truly growing in a beautiful girl. Rivaille always claimed it was your beauty she inherited. The thought made you blush.
Jeanne looked up at you, holding onto the folds of your skirt. Her eyes went wide, and a grin graced her childlike face.

Zuko's Hair: the SymbolismIt is a widespread and somewhat controversial theory that Zuko's changing hairstyles throughout the three seasons of Avatar: the Last Airbender are symbolic of the internal changes which he experiences over the course of that time. I personally support this theory.Zuko's Hair: the Symbolism5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Let's begin with the basics. I am going to explain the theory at its core in the simplest of terms, and then explain the thought process which led me to this theory.
When you see Season One Zuko, with his ponytail, what do you think? I'm willing to bet that you think "bad". You may deepen this label by throwing in such choice terms as "angry", "bitter", "hurting", "confused", "searching for answers", and the like, but on the surface, it's just "bad". Now let's skip ahead 63 episodes. We are now in season three, and Zuko has shaggy hair. When you see this Zuko, what do you think? You think "good". You may also think "changed", "redeemed", "honorable", "noble", or "forgiven", but basically what you think is "good".

REQUEST Paperwork (Jean x Reader)You sat at one of the many dinner tables alone. You weren’t eating anything; in fact there wasn’t a plate in front of you but instead, a pile of papers were spread across the table. You held a pen in your hand, filling out form after form. You were filling the work out because it had to be done and it was one of the few things you were good at. You were never good in military training. You were assigned paperwork to do because of this reason. Surprisingly, you didn’t mind it at all.

Now she could do nothing except lay between her tangled sheets, twisting and turning as worry churned inside of her, tying her stomach into tight knots.
A small groan escaped her lips as she turned to face the alarm clock resting on her bedside table. The bright red numbers on the clock's face pierced through the darkened room to tell her that it was already four in the morning and the family would be waking up in a few hours to head off to Sunday morning Mass.

Amon's solid mask and deep, intimidating voice was replaying over and over in her head. She closed her eyelids even tighter, ignoring the sweat that dripped down the side of her face.
