    Summary

    Dr. Liu,

    Got your final report yesterday on Project LV-426. I'm amazed. Great work all around. It's been forwarded to the Chair, our friends at the Pentagon, the Defense Appropriations Committee, and DARPA. The acid-resistant armor is something that should really catch their eye.

    We're expecting some big grant money from this.

    Burke,

    Did you read even the executive summary of my report? There are some interesting biomaterials that we could work with, but I stressed, multiple times, that this creature is far too dangerous to even consider using in military research projects. It's aggressive, stupid, vicious, aggressive, impossible to train, and did I mention aggressive?

    . . .their limbs work on hydraulic principles and operate under pressure, which is why they splurt like a popped water balloon when they get hit in those Marine camera feeds we saw. A slight wound to a limb takes them right the hell out of commission, and now your troops have to deal with an insanely aggressive and stupid xenomorphic K-9 unit that oh by the way IS BLEEDING ACID.

    Summary

    The empire has been around for years and the Jedi were purged. While scavenging with her brother, Katara comes across a boy frozen in carbonite.
    Basically "The Boy in the Iceberg," but if it were in Star Wars.

    Summary

    Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes the immortal leader of a cult tries to summon the god of death and gets you instead. ‘Not dying’ just got a lot more complicated than ‘follow chemlab safety instructions.’ A tongue-in-cheek, Akatsuki-centric SI/OC.

    Summary

    “Is everything in place?”

    “Of course. The 2nd division is encircling the palace as we speak, and Fire Sage Saito is at hand.”

    “Then it’s time to fetch the Fire Lord.”

    Above the ceiling screen, Zuko stopped breathing. This wasn’t just a meeting. This was a coup. And he had to sneeze.

    Things are changing in the Fire Nation. The war is over. Fire Lord Ozai is gone. His burned and banished teenage son is now in charge. And friends with the Avatar. And Fire Lord Zuko seems pretty intent on tearing down what the Fire Nation built over the past 100 years and building something new. Most of his governing council isn’t on board with that.
     
    The palace guards just want to get him to the Peace Conference next month in one piece. And maybe convince him to stop disappearing at random times. It’s harder than it sounds.

    Aka: Die Hard for firebenders, sort of
