  3. Summary

    Liar! is still the first thing Harry Potter ever says to Lord Voldemort. Quirrell doesn’t know the words, had never met his master with a body and a scribbled-on wrist, but the thing on the back of his head starts, hesitates.

    Her wrist, he hisses to Quirrell, before he can stop himself, check her wrist.

    Quirrell flicks his wand at Harry’s tied up body, and her right sleeve rises. Her ribbon flutters to the ground. Even Quirrell understands, then. Master, he says, the stutter now long forgotten, Master it says… it says...

    Show me!

    Obedient, and terrified, Quirrell turns and the terrible, snake-like face looks down on Harry with those red, red eyes. She scrabbles for her sleeve, a task harder said than done when your arms are trapped at your sides, and she isn’t quick enough. Avada Kedavra, Voldemort reads in his own flawless script, and fury rises in him along with understanding.

    Somehow, in some inexplicable and incomprehensible way, the former Fire Prince, a powerful, vicious, and determined beta, was actually a powerful, vicious, and determined omega.

    Sokka didn’t know which one, but somewhere, somehow, a spirit was laughing at him. Perhaps alongside some of its stupid spirit friends.

    Summary

    Inspired by Muffinlance's Salvage, Hakoda not only picks up a surly traumatized teenager but his sarcastic, angry sister as well. Ozai may not want his son back, but his daughter on the other hand... well, Hakoda is ready and willing to fight for custody of the daughter that isn't his, and the son that's safer among enemies than with his own father.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Look, just, leave the negotiating to us, and stop trying to escape. You’re safe here as long as you obey the rules.”

    Safe. Wasn’t that a concept. Azula couldn’t remember the last time she’d felt safe, whether it was eleven years spent keeping the delicate balance of Father’s blessings and trying to earn Mothers, and then Uncle’s, attentions, or two and a half years trying to keep her idiot brother from killing himself chasing a Spirits tale in the middle of the Ocean when they weren’t on anybody’s side at the end of a century-long war, she knew better than letting her guard down.

    She might have been Father’s favorite, but that didn’t mean his ire didn’t burn just as strong as it did with ZuZu.

    It doesn’t mean that returning to the Palace without the Avatar would be any less of a death sentence.

    The Chief didn’t know Father, he didn’t understand him. That meant that these… negotiations were going to crash and burn, but it also meant that he wasn’t like Father either. She couldn’t earn his favor then hide behind the nearest target as they took his wrath and punishment.

    But it was fine. She’d just do what she always did: agree, then do what she had to do, consequences be damned.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Zuko wasn't sure why he flinched from fire but he tried hard not to, because his father wanted him to be a good firebender; he was an embarrassment if he was worse than his three-year-old sister. Zuko tried extra hard to love his mother, because he was sorry that he couldn't remember her. It seemed like she knew how sorry he was and loved him back a little extra, too, so he wouldn't be worried about it. Trying extra hard to love his mother became strongly loving her for real, but sometimes Zuko still caught himself watching the servant women and wondering who he was looking for.

    Summary

    Azula’s first thought after she hears the lightning is that she should probably wait for a bit before going in. Then the guards tell her that Zuko went in about three degrees ago and she thinks maybe she’ll take a tiny bit longer.

    Her next thought is that Zuko is an idiot. Her next next thought is that she should probably go in to try and smooth things over with her father so that she’s next in line for the throne and not next in line for a bolt of lightning to the face.

    ---

    Or, Zuko's aim is off, Azula is better at organisation than she is at feelings, and this changes the course of history.

    He’s so soft, and that is why she must be cruel for him.
