    Summary

    It's the '90's. Roller skating is IN. Every Friday (technically Saturday) at midnight Sk8+Infinity Lanes—a seedy roller rink/bowling alley— hosts a fierce competition known as 'S, an underground roller derby, not for the faint of heart.

    Joe and Cherry are on the cusp of rekindling their relationship when their old friend from high school, ADAM, enters the scene and tries to wedge himself between them, once more. This both infuriates Joe and emboldens him. He's not about to miss his chance with Cherry and let ADAM get in the way, again. He's going to win Cherry and their team is going to finally win against ADAM at 'S.'

    “You better not get distracted staring at the back of my neck,” Kaoru teased with a tantalizing toss of his long cherry-blossom colored ponytail.

    “Vain, much?”

    Karou pushed the black and purple helmet down on his head and tightened the strap at his chin. “No. I just know you.”

    Kojiro pinched Kaoru’s side, daring him to squeal, but he wouldn’t take the bait.

    “If we win, I might consider going home with you tonight, Joe.”

    “Is that right? Well then, Cherry, we better win,” Karou responded with a wink.

    Summary

    Niki Hargreeves has escaped the bullshit that her parents used to try to shove down her throat, and now she has to help her younger sister Vanya do the same. Their parents don't realize that Vanya is much more like Niki than they realize--she's gay, she's alternative, and she has no interest in being a debutante.

    Vanya is the one who first discovers roller derby and drags Niki along to watch a match. Niki and Vanya fall in love, both with the sport and with the people they meet along the way. For Vanya, it's a badass chick with a guitar named Sissy and for Niki, it's a gorgeous blonde force of nature on the track known as Vindictive.

    Or, the Klesbians Whip It Roller Derby AU that all of us thirsty bitches need.

    Summary

    "I like to go fast, Marina told her last week, and Pearl sees it now. The long profile of her body as she moves the quad skates, gliding as fast as she can around all the people, in tempo with Wet Floor’s Don’t Slip. She’s built for it, all those long lines, those muscled legs, the pumping of her arms. It’s intoxicating to watch her, especially for someone like Pearl, who loves these skates and this rink like she loves her home. Someone like Marina is exactly who she needs."

    A story of self-discovery, soul searching, and falling in love. Also, they skate sometimes.

    [Roller Derby AU. A belated offering for Pearlina Week.]

    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t know the first thing about roller derby—apart from the fact that it’s played on roller skates, and that it’s the sort of sport that Azula likes, which means there’s some form of contact allowed. He’s not exactly in the mood to spend his evening off sitting alone in a too-bright arena watching sports, but Azula made it clear that it was important that he come, and their newly-reestablished relationship is too fragile for him to afford to skip it.

    He’s prepared to spend the evening confused and alone when he inadvertently befriends Sokka, the older brother of one of Azula’s opponents. Sokka convinces Zuko to tag along to the after party, where he is introduced to Sokka’s sister, Katara, and suddenly Zuko doesn’t think he would mind if every night were derby night.

    Or: A Modern AU following Zuko and Azula as they rebuild their relationship after a decade apart, and disaster bisexuals Zuko and Katara learning to ask for help and give people the benefit of the doubt.

    "Niki dodges past two blockers, ducking sideways and curving the edge of the track to slip past. They’re quick though and are back in front of her.

    Summary

    Athletics are important to Langa, being the best he can be at whatever he tries is also important to Langa. More important than all of that though is the sound of Reki’s delight when Langa does something well, when he does it better than he expected. Langa can get obsessive when he wants to be good at something, when he tries, but this is… different.

    The closest thing he has to compare it to is skiing with his dad, but this is different even from that.

    He wants Reki to be proud of him. He wants to impress him.

    He looks up at Reki’s shiny face, sweat damp hair and cheeks flushed, and feels his heart pound in his chest.

    Or, Langa and Reki are best friends and maybe something else.

    Summary

    Zuko, by all accounts, is a good kid. He gets straight A’s, works hard in his Uncle’s tea shop, and makes sure to keep out of trouble. His father is Republic City’s President, and he makes sure to not give the media anything to make his family look bad. He’s a good kid, but that doesn’t make him any less unapproachable. Zuko has a permanent scowl on his face, and on the first day of senior year at Caldera Academy, he got into a huge fight with a few kids who did something he thought was inexcusable. Outside of that: good kid. . . Except for Friday nights. On Friday nights Zuko goes out with his best friend Toph with whom he runs a roller derby, an illegal roller derby, and it’s the best thing they’ve ever come up with. They wear costumes to assure that outsiders can’t identify them, they handpick what teams are and aren’t allowed to compete, and everyone who works there knows everyone else, so if someone rats the place out, the rat will go down just as hard as the rest of them.

    It’s not personal, it’s just business.
