    Summary

    Sokka is born in the dead of winter with a red dragon curling down the left side of his back.

    Zuko is born in the sweltering heat of summer with a sword down his spine.

    He doesn’t want to talk about it when their gazes turn on him. They make assumptions— is it someone he left behind in the Fire Nation? He looks away when he agrees with them.

    Toph brushes past him when they all part ways. She says, “I know you’re lying.”

    Summary

    He wants Yusuf to hold his hand again. Grab his ankle. Flick his ear. Thrust his sword into his chest and breath into his mouth.

    Yet, they have the long ocean of eternity ahead of them. These whims are nothing but an ocean swell under their ship: gone as soon as they come. Nicolo knows better than to jump overboard and drown alone trying to chase them.

    Summary

    Nicky gasps back into reality, choking on the blood still filling in his throat and rolling over to cough into the ground, saliva sticky and sharp against his tongue. His fingers are already twitching towards his gun, hoping it’s within reach but never really sure, not when it’s taken so long.

    Joe will be upset. He always is when it’s like this-- wounds slow to heal and body unmoving for a few too many raw, dragging beats.

    Or, Nicky gets hurt, Joe worries, they have sex

    Summary

    The second evening, Nile falls asleep on the couch after watching a soccer match of some women’s team she likes, which takes a lot out of a person, apparently. 

    In which it has been three days since some people managed to have a fight.
    (This is a direct sequel to "A fair fight is nothing but bad tactics" so maybe read that one first. Or don't. I'm not your boss.)
