    Summary

    Under the leadership of Fire Lord Iroh, the Fire Nation has made every attempt to restore peace and make amends for the harm they inflicted during the Seventy-Year War. Their newest proposal is a literal proposal: a marriage to unite the Fire Nation and the Water Tribes.

    The Fire Nation offers Prince Zuko’s hand.

    The Water Tribes offer Princess Yue’s.

    Sokka is apparently the only person in the world who has a problem with any of this.

    Summary

    Coincidentally, the physical effects of romantic and sexual desire match up very closely with the physical effects of fear. But it's not a problem-- it's not like anyone is going to be able to hear the way your heart speeds up, or see the minute dilation of your pupils, are they? They'd have to be some sort of Superhuman to do that.

    And what's worse than a Superhuman hearing that quick pulse and seeing those dilated eyes and concluding that you're in love with them?

    A Superhuman hearing that quick pulse and seeing those dilated eyes and thinking you're terrified of them.

    Summary

    “You –“ Lance squeezed his eyes shut, the feeling of what little stability he had built up over the months crumbling to the ground. “You think that would have been better?” he choked out.

    Keith sounded a little surprised by the question. “Well, yeah.”

    “You think I would have been happy – you think any of us would have been happy – if you were gone instead of her?”

    “I think –“

    “No, you really don’t.” Lance spat the words at him, loud enough that several people turned to look their way. “You already left us once, so you don’t know what it was like!”

     

    Or:
    In which Lance and Keith bring up the past and share a couple secrets.
