    Summary

    Zuko does not notice when the Water Tribe girl first stirs. She is staring at his face — his scar — but strangely it is only when he faces her head-on that she is afraid.

    She is the first person who ever flinches at his right side instead of his left.

    He begins his interrogation at once. Uncle has dozed off, thankfully. If he knew she was awake, he would slow things down by offering tea. Still, Zuko is not a total barbarian. He thrusts the lukewarm tea in the girl’s direction. She looks around wildly, no doubt disoriented by her surroundings and Zuko presses his advantage.

    “Where is the Avatar?”

     

    A canon-divergent tale: Katara must protect the newly-found Avatar from a Fire Nation Prince, although he is not quite who she expected. But Katara has plenty of secrets of her own...

    Summary

    Zuko’s face is perfect for him, all sharp angles and planed skin, and it’s almost vicious in its beauty, almost too pretty and angular, and she wonders if she were to trail her fingers along the edge of his jaw, would she cut them? If she were to caress his cheek, to press her lips just underneath his eyes, would she hurt herself?

    Katara's eyes drift down towards his lips, and sweat beads on them. She’s hypnotized by the way his lips pull and twist along with his face, as the muscles in his jaw clench. His lips look unfairly full, and she wonders what it would be like to press her hands against the blades of his cheekbones and bring his mouth close to hers.

    He is a study in contradictory terms, sharp lines and harsh angles that melt into soft skin and gentle touches; and Katara cannot think of a time when she will not be fascinated by him.

     

    or; katara and zuko can't stop noticing each other, at the worst time possible. it's getting to be annoying for the both of them.

    Summary

    Imagine how pissed off you would be if you somehow ended up in Middle Earth in time to help, but you didn’t speak Westron. Or Sindarin. Or Khuzdul. All you have are proper nouns, and some random phrases like Mellon, and Amralime, and, oh yeah, the inscription from the One ring. because that’s going to go over well when you start spouting off long forgotten verse in the black tongue of Mordor….
    So instead of eloquently explaining yourself and saving lives and falling in love with a character of your choice, you have to chase them around like a slightly more verbose Hodor, trying to learn a language and keep the dumb bastards alive.
    ------------------
    Well, it had to happen to someone eventually, and Pissed Off is definitely the way to describe it when it happens to her. But she still tries to do her duty to the fandom and keep the Durins alive just in case it isn't a nightmare after all.

    Summary

    The deep places of the earth. Vaulted cathedrals filled with Mahal's voice. And the perfect cradle from which to reform two souls; forged anew in synchronous heat and passion...

    Only, things aren't going exactly how Thorin Oakenshield, Reformed King Under The Mountain, dreamed. Bilbo is confoundingly...confused. The bond that is tearing apart his very being is in danger of being snuffed out before it's even had much of a chance to begin, and there is far too much political chicanery than is good for his fraying nerves and temper.

    And orcs. Definitely too many orcs.

    If he is very lucky, he may just manage to woo Bilbo, and possibly save his sanity in the process...

     

    A prompt fill for a Dwarven Courtship story; with lots of feels, a touch of fluff and a mine-cart full of Dwarven culture thrown in for good measure.

    And Nori. Because he'd find a way to steal centre stage, regardless.
