    Summary

    Toph can still feel the heat in the star-metal, and the memory of power, even in stillness. Suki’s arm feels the same.

    What happens at the Jasmine Dragon stays at the Jasmine Dragon.

    Summary

    The new kid nearly quivered with keenness. His voice had been scrubbed as clean of any trace of an accent as his face had been of dirt.

    Susan felt the name should have meant something to her, but she couldn’t think what. “Bill,” she ventured, “is that short for Wilhelm?”

    “No, Miss. I’m named for my godfather.”

    Death meets a poor woodcutter who's looking for a just man to be a godfather to his son. The new kid in Susan's class says he's going to be a great physician.

    The Death of Rats is just trying to do his job.

    Summary

    “A cream pie,” said Roic. “He was aiming for m’lord’s face. I took it right in the chest. My first, fanciest House uniform--”

    “Not fair!” Taura howled. “It’s supposed to be stories about saving Miles’ life, not his suits.”

    Taura and Roic swap stories about guarding Miles.

    Summary

    “Once they saw that Hen Wen was a white pig and not a golden sheep--and not even oracular any more--they put down their weapons and apologized quite nicely.” Eilonwy frowned. “Or at least that’s what they were doing as far as anyone could understand them. They might have been reciting a poem about anemones and primroses. Some people just can’t admit when they’re lost.”

    Summary

    Bad girls smoke and drink, wear short skirts and stay out late at night. There's no word for someone who brings a chicken pot pie to the trailer of a young man who doesn't have a friend in the world, and says, "I'm so sorry for your loss" when she means, "Is it true you can start fires with your mind?"

    But I swear, I never meant to hurt him.

    Summary

    "You think I should let her . . . just walk it off?" Mako frowns down at the table, and the carved whale-ivory dishes heaped with blubber cubes, sea cucumbers, and things that Mako is frankly afraid to ask what they are. Bolin likes this stuff, but Bolin will eat anything. "I do owe her an apology. I kinda messed up the last one I made."

    "And you'll mess it up again if you try in this mood. She needs to cool down, you need to cool down." Korra tosses a blubber cube into the air and catches it in her mouth. "Trust me on this one. Avatar, right?"

    How can Mako enjoy a party when Asami's run off and it's his fault? (Answer: with a little faith in his friends.)

    Summary

    Stars, as any halfway civilized being knows, are luminous spheres of plasma held together by gravity, but these weren’t. They were bears, and a hunter leading a pair of dogs, and a stream of milk from the breasts of the earth; they were memories and passions and the gods who held sway over the fates of men. It was utterly ridiculous, but the Bannus thought: Very well, I can use this.

    The Bannus has been in the Wood for a long time.

    Summary

    Asami tucks the buns into her basket, next to the flower, and the incense sticks, and the photograph. "They're for my mother's birthday."

    "Oh," says Tahno, and he looks up, and sees the façade of the police station in front of him. And maybe he starts thinking about something other than himself for a moment, and remembers what everyone knows: why Hiroshi Sato joined the Equalist cause.

    Summary

    There was a scent on the air--dry, dust, and salt--that recalled her to her childhood, to her mother’s warm, calloused hands and solid presence at her back, adjusting her stance. Place your feet so, and so. Wider. Bend your knees. No one can move you, if you know how to stand.

    How Brier brought Tori back from his weirding-walk, with a little help.

    Summary

    Asami takes her helmet off and runs a hand through her hair. "This is it. What do you think?"

    Bolin is still struggling with his helmet; it's a large, supposedly, but a little too snug anyway. Finally it pops off his head, leaving his hair sticking out in all directions. "Well . . . it's nicer than most of the places I've lived, for sure," he says. "Seems like a step down from your last place, though."

    Bolin helps Asami move in.

    Summary

    It was only--Serg had been so late, Kareen had let herself hope he wasn’t going to show up after all. That was her mistake; it always was.

    Summary

    “If I asked you to explain debugging azi psychsets while standing on one foot,” said Yanni, “what would you say?”

    Justin barely hesitated before extending his arms to the sides and lifting one foot of the ground; he might comply as thoughtlessly with half-a-dozen capricious and humiliating demands before breakfast on any given day.

    Summary

    I’d heard that are-you-leaving-me? wobble in dozens of voices over the years; the answer was nearly always yes. But that wasn’t all; Olivia was worried about me, bless her, a High Vor lady suddenly deprived of my home and visible means of support. What was left of my own dowry was enough for me to live modestly for several years, but modesty had never been one of my virtues, as Olivia knew. In fact almost all that money had already been spent, or good as.

    “We have to talk,” I said.

    Lady Donna has a proposal for Olivia.
