    Summary

    Zuko has been working on a grand gesture to demonstrate his feelings to Katara for months, but when the time finally comes to confess his feelings, the moment doesn't feel right.

    But maybe he doesn't need a grand gesture.

    Based on the gorgeous animatic of the same name by Hayley Foster.

    Summary

    Summary: When they were kids, Zuko and Katara didn’t get along that well; now Katara’s back from college, and both of them have a vested and petty interest in showing off the person they’ve managed to become. So when Sokka throws a wild party one night, Zuko and Katara decide to get reacquainted—and this time they get along swimmingly.

    ~

    Katara’s rehearsed this, and she never flubs a performance; so she stands her ground, remaining stock still even as adrenaline courses through her veins and throbs deep in her core. The weed is making everything seem vivid and fascinating, so she can’t stop herself from taking in all the details: the perfectly tailored fit of his jeans, the strategically faded Airborne Toxic Event t-shirt that’s been French tucked oh-so-casually into his waistband, the whimsically striped socks, and the fashionably shaggy hair that falls into his eyes just so, softening the sharper angles of his face. Their gazes meet, and she swallows; his eyes are still as intense as ever, but somehow even more unnerving.

    A burst of furious envy erupts inside her. How dare you get this hot, Katara thinks. How utterly fucking dare you.

    Summary

    Just two absolute monarchs chilling in a gazebo, one table apart, trying to figure out what the hell to say.

    (Or: two perspectives on the formal beginnings of world peace.)

    Summary

    ‘Zuko, be safe. Be safe, okay? Whatever you do today, wherever you end up, you have to just— There hasn’t been enough time.’

    His voice is as coarse and probing as his fingertips.

    ‘Enough time? For what?'

    ‘For me to know you.’

     

    With Sozin's Comet fast-approaching and the prospect of battle bearing down on them, a moment of quiet is stolen in the camp of the White Lotus.

    Summary

    They grind to a halt, out of ideas, but by this point Katara’s pretty clear on precisely two things:

    One, however much she might have felt as though she did, she does not know this man.
    But, two, she kind of likes him.

    Do you ever think that some things are inevitable?
