    Summary

    Katara thinks about soulmates often.
    Her Gran-Gran told her the story, once: how soulmates are tethered (she likes that word, tethered – stronger than connected, softer than chained), how young some of them are when they hear the first evidence of that Tether. How soulmates hear each others’ thoughts sometimes, even before they know they’re soulmates, even before they meet. She loves the idea that a little part of her is in someone else’s mind even now.

     

    Katara and Zuko through the years, sharing thoughts and finding each other.

    Summary

    “Here it comes-” Doctor Li dived to get one of the buckets she kept for sick patients before Zuko puked yellow camellias, the flower of longing, down Iroh’s front. “Lord Iroh!”

    Uncle gave a hearty laugh which made Zuko feel guilty for getting crunched up petals and a sprinkle of blood on his robes. “It’s okay! I got used to this when Lu Ten had his first crush!” Zuko buried his head in his hands and wanted to die a quick, painful death.

    Zuko doesn’t want to tell Katara how he truly feels about her, but after contracting a disease that makes him puke flowers every time she makes his heart skip a beat, he may not have a choice in the matter.

    Summary

    Something unknown and unspoken is entombed underneath it all. It’s calling to her, daring her to burrow deeper, enticing her with the temptation to unbury something well-hidden and deeply felt. And Zuko has long been such an enigma, such a beacon in her life that Katara dares, just for one moment, to reach out and touch that unknown emotion, brushing the edges of it with her subconscious.

    Summary

    In the years following, when an intrepid journalist or overly familiar courtier would ask how their romance began, Katara would always get a shy smile and answer, “The rain.” This was usually enigmatic enough to put off nosy follow up questions, but it was the simplest truth.
