Tempered Steel Ch. 5

The first minutes of morning. Still mostly dark outside; the sun was just beginning it’s assault on the sky. Piandao rubbed his eyes wearily. To say he hadn’t slept well would be an understatement. He sighed, observing the battle of dawn; fiery oranges, reds, and pinks were turning the fight in their favor against the dark blues and purples of the lingering night. Only the brightest stars still twinkled, most already being outshone by the sun which just barely peaked its own weary head over the horizon. Releasing the cloth in his hand, he let the tent flap swing back into place. Stepping back into the still dark room, he knelt by

You Are My Sunshine

It had been a week since he had lost her; the longest week of his life. Sleep had not come easily, and, when it finally did come about, it was fitful and restless. His conscience refused to give him a moment of reprieve; his guilt only doubled when Katara looked at him, broken and lost, crying for her mom who she would ever see again. Sokka tried to comfort her and, if he were in his right mind, he would have commended the boy for taking care of his sister so well. It was dark now, as dark outside as he felt inside. Never in his life had he felt this all-consuming depression- a grief so deep it threatened to swallow him up at any second. A s

My Heart Will Stay

Hakoda pulled Bato close to him that night; the morrow would prove difficult for the both of them as he was scheduled to be shipped away to the Boiling Rock at dawn. For now, he clutched desperately at the silent man beside him, taking in his scent, trying to memorize the feel of his body. He wanted to imprint everything he could to his memory for those long nights to come; who knew how long they would be separated this time. He pressed a soft kiss to his partner’s neck, trying hard to keep his voice steady. The traitor cracked slightly in spite of his attempted control. “I’ll come back for you, love…” The soft, shu

“It’s going to take a while to get used to these new clothes.” Hakoda remarked, securing the belt around his waist. He held his arm up, sniffing the grey sleeve, his nose wrinkling up in disdain. It- and the rest of the uniform- reeked of soot and ash, both bitter and acidic- nothing like the tantalizing smell of salt-water and sea breeze his traditional clothes smelt of. He had yet to put the armor on, dreading how constricting it would feel; the Water Tribe was the embodiment of the ocean, meant to be free and fluid, not restricted and contained. “And the hairstyle.” Bato frowned, trying to pull his warrior’s

Tempered Steel: Prologue

The sun was beginning to set as he began the finishing touches on his newest sword. He had been working on her the entire day and, now wiping the sweat from his brow, he had just entered the tempering phase. He would inspect her carefully for brittleness tonight and, if he deemed her worthy, he would sharpen her in the morning. Much like during his calligraphy sessions, he strictly urged Fat to not interrupt him unless it was of vital importance. There were few things worse than interrupting the delicate process of sword-making. Steam rose as he dipped the red-hot metal into the water. He pulled it up carefully, smiling at his reflection in
