    Summary

    The water was so shallow as to provide a mostly unobstructed view from above. And the cave roof did let in some light from uneven stones, so there was no real darkness to protect him. The light reflected off the surface of the water and sent blue and yellow reflections back onto the cave walls. “You don’t have to be afraid of me. I’m not gonna hurt you.”

    “I am not afraid,” He Xuan hissed, hand tightening to his knife. 

    Water splashed as the human kicked his feet in the shallows. “So you do speak. I was wondering if you didn’t speak my language, and if I had gone mad thinking you said something to me when you dragged me onto shore.” 

    He Xuan’s eyes narrowed, tail resting amongst the silt in the cave’s bottom. “If I had known you would stalk me, I wouldn’t have bothered. The world with one less human in it is a better place.” 

    “Have to agree with you there.” The water splashed, vibrations traveling through as the human kicked his legs. He Xuan swam to the side and peered around the rock. The human’s eye fell on him, but he was hidden enough not to show too much of himself. “You don’t have to keep hiding. I promise I won’t hurt you.”

    Summary

    When the thick black fog of the curse clears, there’s a child standing in front of Xie Lian. He’s small—he’s so, so small—and as soon as he sees Xie Lian, he wraps his arms around himself and hunches his shoulders like he’s trying to make himself even smaller. There is not a single spark of recognition in that wide, wild eye.

    “...San Lang?!”

    When a curse turns Hua Cheng into a child again, it's up to Xie Lian to take care of him. It's a task easier said than done, when Hua Cheng's memories have regressed along with the rest of him.

    Summary

    [Spoilers for All 5 Books]

    “Don’t leave me,” Xie Lian begs, “San Lang, stay. Please.”


    After the final battle, Hua Cheng stays with Xie Lian. It should be good. Xie Lian should be grateful. He should be happy.

    Instead, he's terrified. Maybe it would have been easier for Xie Lian to believe in something he couldn't see than to trust in the strength of a silent, flickering ghost fire.

    Summary

    Azula looks at it with disdain. ‘What’s this.’ she says in a voice so patronizing that he immediately feels offended.

    5 year olds have no right to be able to achieve that tone he thinks indignantly

    ‘It’s a dragon, obviously.’ he huffs. Azula squints at the silk in front of her ‘Are you sure? This looks more like a tiger-eel to me.’ Zuko glares at her. ‘It’s a dragon’ he repeats.

    Just an idea about embroidery traditions.
