    Summary

    The fire returns on his tongue. He spits anger at the Avatar, because anger is the only thing he’s ever known, or maybe it’s the only thing he remembers, the only thing he’s ever been taught, because firebending may come from the breath but it has only ever been red-hot and mad. It licks at his skin and leaves pink-red marks he traces with his fingertips years down the line. His scars never seem to fade.

    ...

    Zuko joins the Avatar after the events at Pohuai Stronghold. A character study.

    Summary

    “When I grow up,” Suki tells Vanu, “I’m going to be the best Kyoshi Warrior on this island, and I’m going to stop the war.”

    Vanu puts his warm hand on her shoulder, squeezing lightly. “I know, Suki,” he says, brown eyes downcast. The solemn expression on his face looks like it fits more comfortably into his skin and wrinkles than the kind smile ever did.

    He doesn’t ask her why she thinks she’ll be able to stop it all by herself. He doesn’t remind her that the war has been going on for over a hundred years, and that the Avatar is dead. He doesn’t tell her that the most useful thing she can do with her hands while they’re still empty is to hold on.

    Vanu moves Suki’s fingers and shows her how to handle the weapon properly.

     

    Or, Suki grows up, falls in love, bleeds, and ends the war. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    “Good fight,” the brother says, not looking at her. His hand is right behind her, and if he were someone kinder, he’d reach out and place it on her shoulder. If she were someone kinder, she’d let him. 

    “Good fight,” she murmurs instead, and leaves it at that.

    The brother doesn’t say he loves her out loud. But she hears it all the same.

    It is the last time.

     

    Or, a study in siblings. Featuring growing closer, growing apart, things that were said, and things that were not.
