    Summary

    [“Draw a portrait, Sparky,” she says, “It’ll last longer.”

    Zuko does not draw a portrait. Zuko gets up and disappears to wherever he’s been sleeping (alone and far away, like he’s hiding, even though sound carries too well in this temple for him to keep his screaming nightmares to himself), and Toph thinks for a moment that she’s run him off. She hasn’t run him off.

    Zuko returns in a matter of minutes, holding what’s clearly a book in his hands.

    “Hasn’t…” he begins, anxious without fail every time he brings attention to himself, “Hasn’t anyone ever read to you?”]

    Or,

    Toph thinks books are stupid. Zuko disagrees.

    Summary

    The safest thing to do, perhaps, is to let the clone die. Destroy the pod, if possible. They can't be sure what they'll wake up.

    But Keith is here. That changed everything.

    Keith had cared about Shiro - well, who he thought was Shiro, even after. Keith had cared about the clone back then, even knowing what he was, even knowing what he tried to do to their team, their family. Keith had told that clone that he-

    It’s doesn’t matter, right now.

    Keith is here, and Shiro's not going to make Keith watch him die another time.

    So he says, "Wake him up."


    Or: Shiro watches Keith and his clone Kuro together, and sees a glimpse of what could've been if he had made different choices.

    Summary

    They stop at Shiro’s front step. This is where Shiro should thank him again for coming out, maybe ask in a roundabout way if Keith can make time for a quick lunch before he’s off again- if he’d even want to. If it would even be worth it to him. If it were a movie, Shiro would have a speech all ready. He’d ask Keith inside and then-

    Shiro’s hand makes a fist inside his pocket. He feels the rustling of plastic wrappers.

    “Trick or treat, Keith?”

    Keith stops to think. “Surprise me,” he says finally.

    Summary

    Oh.

    He’s got dark hair with a streak of white, a thin scar across his nose and the softest grey eyes sparkling with tears. Paired with that sharp jaw and fit build, Keith is completely bowled over. He’s gorgeous. Keith is suddenly pathetically glad that Rolo and Nyma pulled their careless little stunt- at least this way he knows what it’s like to hold a solid ten for a couple of minutes. Not likely a grubby, short, badly dressed gremlin like Keith will ever get the chance again, much less when he’s soaked in fake gore.

    “You saved me,” Takashi says with an adorable little smile that shoots straight through Keith’s blood spattered shirt to the heart.
