Secret Santa for Elfgrove
  What if thoughts spread like diseases? I can't do it, Zuko. I thought I was strong, I thought I was brave, I thought I was a war hero. But I'm no one, I'm not a Fire Lady. I can stand the stares from the women of the court, and the disdain from the men. I can stand the backstabbing, the lies and deceit, and the two-facedness in the court. I can even stand Aang's look of betrayal everytime he sees me. I can stand not going back to the Southern Water Tribe. I could stand being disowned by them, I know I could. But I can't bear the way you're growing apart from me. You don't mean to, of course. But as everyday, someone new attacks the court

Zutara Week 09 Lick Day 7
It's big and round and shiny. It's also rainbow colored, which makes it irresistible to her eight year old self. And it's also in the hands of her stinky (because all boys smell, Suki and Azula have told her) neighbor. She knows he's showing off, dangling it in front of her nose, but she can't help it. Her mouth is watering for that lollipop. But it's Zuko's, and she's hated him ever since he played that mean trick with Sokka when they put papayas in my food, I haven't forgiven him. I have to forgive Sokka, he's my brother (and Mom made me after two weeks), but Zuko doesn't deserve it. So what if he'd apologized? She looks determinedly away

Zutara Week 09 Rhythm Day 6
Toph measures life by people's heartbeats. Snoozles' normally is a little faster than the others, but, strangely enough, slows down in moments of crises. Suki's is reliable - always 72 beats every minute, Toph could set a clock by it. But when Sokka and Suki are together, both their heart rates speed up to unusual levels, making it easy for her to detect when one of them enters a room in which the other is already present. Twinkletoes' used to be quicker than the others, always excited, but it's slowed down recently. His new heart rate is a strange, slowish calming rhythm that is much steadier than before. Somehow, every time Toph hears it,

Zutara Week 09 Fireflies Day 5
Katara can't explain it, but even when she's in the Earth Kingdom thousands of miles away, she's thinking of Zuko. She's out in Toph's new house's garden, alone in the dark. But the sight of a tiny little ball of light crossing the garden - a firefly, she remembers him telling her - brings him to mind. "Please, Katara," his voice cracks in the middle. "I'll make it work." She disassociates herself from the memories, and thinks about life in the Earth Kingdom. She wouldn't call it boring, but it's not exactly interesting. Toph is off all day training young Earthbenders who can't afford masters, and she's been amusing herself by reading the

ZutaraWeek09 Cactus Juice Day4
"Fire! Fire Nation!" yelled Sokka, pointing at two different objects and looking put out when no one reacted in the manner he expected them to. "Yes, Sokka, we know," Katara said with the biting tone in her voice that is present so often these days. "The fire is to keep us warm, and the Fire Nation is to betray us." Yet again, is the unspoken thought. There is a chorus of protest from Aang and Toph, who seem to be agreeing about a lot of things these days. Or maybe it's Katara's imagination, making her believe that everyone is ganging up on her. It takes a slurred voice of reason to restrain Katara temporarily. "Shuuussh Katarrrr," Suki mu

Zutara Week 09 Jealousy Day 3
"I can't  believe  you would say that." "I said I was sorry, Katara." A hint of impatience slips through his words, and he prays that she won't notice it, for it'll mean at least two hours more of apologies. He tries not to think of the work henpecked, but it forces itself into his mind anyway, causing him to say something he's not sure he won't regret. "It's not like it's my fault anyway." Katara goes on the defensive. "I'm not talking about the remarks made by them, but about the...thing you said after that." She sniffs dramatically, uncomfortably aware that she is overreacting. "Anyway, all the books said it would happen. Their tongues a

Zutara Week 09 Blood Day 2
Katara had assumed the battle had ended well. She was amazed by the fact that they had managed to end it so peacefully, with the only real loss being Azula, and she was not dead. From Zuko's coronation until the tea party they had after it, she thanked the spirits every moment. Someone had been watching over them - it seemed that none of the people she loved had been hurt. She did not know of any casualties among her friends, and due to the fact that the six of them had managed to bring down most of the Fire Nation's offensive, and Zuko had ordered the army to stop attacking the moment he was crowned, there was little opportunity for the othe

Zutara Week 09 Crossover Day 1
Currently, Katara was sitting across from Zuko with her bowl of food, but was neglecting her food in favor of giving him death glares. Not that there was much food, even though Zuko had done his best in the nearby forest. She ignored the conversation going on around her, instead focusing hard on Zuko picking at his food. "What's the matter, Zuko? Too peasant-like for you? I'll take your portion." Her viciousness silences the others, and Zuko attempts a smile back, but falters at her icy gaze. "It's great," he lies. Katara huffs. "Well, if you'd not tired out Aang firebending, maybe he could have helped you hunt." I'm about to protest that

Contest Entry for Coppelia
This is my entry for Coppelia's contest! I hope you guys like it....it's for a comic called "Hang In There Zuko!" [PANEL ONE] Zuko in ninja outfit holding Blue Spirit mask in hand, muttering frantically to self with slightly manic expression on face: Got to find him and GET him. He said it would work... Katara in background (distant) looking *very* angry. [PANEL TWO] Sokka walks past whistling. Zuko has a priceless expression on his face. [PANEL THREE] Zuko jumps on him and begins fighting with him, yelling: You said it was a GOOD idea to kiss Katara. Why didn't you tell me it would make her more angry? You said it would make her like

Contest Entry for Coppelia 2
Here is my second entry for the contest! I hope someone likes this  :)  even if it doesn't win. It could be considered kind of a prequel to the first one. [PANEL ONE] Zuko is standing is front of Katara, who looks confused. "Katara, I have had enough of your bullying. Why can't you just trust me when I've proved it to everyone?" he says. [PANEL TWO] Katara looks even more confused and a little sorry. Zuko continues "Besides, I know you're doing this all because of the secret flame that burns for me inside you and this is a way of expressing your desire." [PANEL THREE] Zuko grabs Katara and kisses her as she goes "Mmmph!" [PANEL FOUR]

Tokka for will2bill
It took him a while to realize that she had no nickname for him. Aang was Twinkletoes, Katara was Sweetness (or more memorably Madame Fussybritches), Zuko was Sparky and even Suki was called Fan Girl. He knew punches and nicknames were her ways of showing affection, but she had even stopped punching him as much as usual lately. He certainly hadn't changed, indeed the other day Katara had told him "Why can't you stop being such a moron, Sokka?" The actual sentence had involved more expletives, but just because he liked Zuko didn't mean he approved of anyone dating his little sister. Did that mean she didn't care for him? He had always loved T

Faves+Pageviews? DA experiment
I have now been a member of DeviantArt for a year and a half, and I was increasingly under the impression that people were favouriting my work for the sake of scoring themselves another pageview. I often visit people’s pages and find that they have pageviews coming out of their ears, even though their “artwork” is… well… not great. So I decided to do an experiment. I made a new DA account and submitted some photographs that no-one in their right mind would think was a good piece of artwork. I then clicked on the ‘random deviant’ button at the bottom of the page about 50 times and favourited something from e

Katara, You Need a Hug
Set right after the Southern Raiders but before they go to see the play. Think of it as a couple days after Katara forgives Zuko. Rating: T/T+-M Warnings: Have fun Zutarians ^^ and whoever else reads this ^^ Oh, and credit to SilverEyes-Chan for such a fun piece ^^ Oh um, if it seems very violent, I was listening to ‘Temper Temper’ by Envy on the Coast while writing this. It was on repeat. AN: Edited August 2011. Good grief, I can't write o.o

Zutara week - Manipulative
Day 4: Manipulative Katara sighed as she moved through the waterbending stances by the fountain. She missed having a constant source of water like a river or the ocean – having just a small amount like in the fountain was depressing her. It didn’t feel as wonderful to waterbend – it made waterbending seem like a chore rather than a way to fight or to express herself. As she moved, gently spinning a ribbon of water in front of her, similar to how she’d once moved with Aang when he was just starting to learn earthbending, she sensed someone watching her. Calling up more water, she spun around gracefully, bringing it into a

ZK One-shots - Sunrise
8. Sunrise In the Fire Nation, anything is possible. I can see the sunrise whenever I want. I don’t have to look at a specific time, go outside, look out a window, leave my room, or even leave my bed. No, the sunrise is always around me, always wearing a small smile for me and me alone. Its black hair reminds me of the darkness it chased from my life. Its pale delicate skin reminds me of the softness beneath, and the tenderness of its heart. Its golden eyes remind me of the light it shines into my life. Its scar reminds me of the destructive power of the sun – yet the fact that the sunrise wears it proudly shows me the strength wi

ZK One-Shots - Television
5. Television “Nooooo!!!” Katara shrieked, throwing the remote at the TV, missing by a wide margin, and hitting the wall near the door. Zuko, who was unfortunately just walking through that door, barely managed to avoid the remote. After ducking, he picked up the rather battered remote and returned it to the coffee table....on the opposite side of Katara. “Katara, what on earth is wrong?” he asked as he did this, trying to stop his girlfriend from howling in agony as the credits rolled down the screen. Mentally he added the ‘this time’ to his question, having learned it was better not to say that part aloud. K
