Fic: Smoke in My Eyes (Chapter Six)

Title: Smoke in My Eyes
Rating: Rating: M (for adult themes, alcohol/tobacco use and sexual situations)
Summary: AU Modern Day. As she was leaving, she later encountered a chanced meeting, which sent a domino effect of events that will leave everyone involved reeling. Jet/Katara (briefly), Katara/Zuko.

Excerpt:
“Zuko has gone through a lot in such a short time,” Iroh began, scrubbing at a pan. “He has been treated with kindness, hardships and everything in between. And I’m sure that no matter what happens between you two, he’ll have your back,” he finished as he passed the pan over to her to dry.

Katara took it, holding onto it for a moment, mulling over his words. “But what if he thinks it’s not worth the trouble?” she asked quietly. “What if I’m not worth it?” She dried the pan and then placed it in the rack to air dry a bit more.

“Katara, you can’t live on ‘what if’s, those will lead to roadblocks and you don’t need them in your life,” Iroh told her gently. “Trust in him, but most importantly, trust in yourself and that everything will work itself out.”

Just then the doorbell rang throughout the cozy split-level home.

“Hm, I wasn’t expecting anyone else over tonight. Katara, you didn’t tell your friends you were throwing a party here, did you?” Iroh teased lightly as he walked to the front door.

“No, of course not,” Katara countered with a laugh, and as she watched him leave the room, she could not shake the feeling of foreboding pressing onto her shoulders.

“F-father…?” Zuko’s voice choked out.

The pressure swelled down to her feet.

Fic - Burnt Sapphires - Chapter 4 - Hope

Description: It truly is the crossroads of destiny. Avatar Aang has fallen in Ba Sing Se, and not in the avatar state. The new avatar will be born into the water tribe, but Azula has a plan to end the avatar cycle; a plan that involves a certain waterbender. Katara is taken to the Fire Nation and held captive, but could something blossom between her and Zuko? S2 zutara, romance, angst, hurt, adventure.

Disclaimer: I do not own Avatar the Last Airbender.


Excerpt:

Four weeks.

Four weeks of stone cuffs biting into her ankles and wrists.

Four weeks of the jagged bashing of the rocky waves drilling into her skull, a constant drumbeat of inprisonment.

Four weeks of dirt and sweat and saltwater and misery.

Four weeks of dried blood and burnt flesh and crackling lightning from the Crystal Catacombes haunting her mind.

She has given up with depriving herself of sleep. Yes, it would be idiotic to give in to drowsiness surrounded by people she does not trust, but it would be even more idiotic to not drift off at all.

She has also given up her promise to not eat a bite of the food they give her. It was supposed to be an act of defiance, to push away her meal with stubborn fists and piercing eyes, but the aromatic smell of spices that wafted from her plate eventually got to her. The food is very different from water tribe or earth nation meals, spicy and seasoned and creamy, but she is used to it by now. She finds it strange that they would give her such nice food, seeing as she is their prisoner, but she does not dwell on the thought. This ship has the Royal Family in it; they probably have more than enough food to go around.

She has not given up on wishing for her friends to come. Even with her vermillion wrists and her pounding head and her stiff muscles, even with her burnt dress and her aching chest and her injured body, four weeks is not nearly long enough to diminish her hope.

Fic - Burnt Sapphires - Chapter 3 - Names

Description: It truly is the crossroads of destiny. Avatar Aang has fallen in Ba Sing Se, and not in the avatar state. The new avatar will be born into the water tribe, but Azula has a plan to end the avatar cycle; a plan that involves a certain waterbender. Katara is taken to the Fire Nation and held captive, but could something blossom between her and Zuko? S2 zutara, romance, angst, hurt, adventure.

Disclaimer: I do not own Avatar the Last Airbender.


Excerpt:
She cannot sleep.

Not that she expects to. Not with the drunk yells of workers constantly invading her eardrums and the uncomfortable pain of the cuffs digging into her wrists and ankles. Not with the memories of Aang haunting her brain and the fears of what is ahead clouding her mind. Her eyes are drowsy and almost painful to keep open, but she cannot close them with all these people that she does not trust around her. Letting her eyelids blacken her vision would be stupid, and letting herself drift off into sleep would be idiotic.

So she forces her eyes open and stares at her feet, shoes worn and muddy, her left leg stained pink from either Azula and Zuko's firebending.

What are Sokka and Toph doing right now? She wonders.

They're probably grieving over Aang, and worried sick for her. She has not heard from them since she was thrown in the Crystal Catacombes, so they could be anywhere right now. They could be in danger! It's probable, but she pushes away the thought. The fall of Aang is already a disaster, she does not need to add to her emotional baggage.

Who knows? Maybe they're looking for her right at this moment; maybe they'll swoop down on Appa right now and rescue her.

Wishful thinking.

Her eyelids begin to droop again and it takes more effort to keep them open, but she must. Everyone here is her enemy, and she needs to remember that.

Excerpt:
He should be outraged. The Prince of the Fire Nation, spat on by a lowly water peasant, even after he chose to be kind to her. Yet he does not feel anger. He has betrayed this girl's trust, joined the side that killed her friend, and has captured her to go along with his sister's plan. Fire Prince or not, he knows she has every right to hate him.

Those sapphire eyes, filled with loathing and fire, staring straight at his own amber ones. An act of defiance, of self-worth, of wilfulness.

He should value his pride more than the safety of this girl. He should bind her mouth shut again, not caring if she cannot get help when men become intoxicated. Yet he wipes the spit from his face and turns, lips pursed, her gag still on his fist, and strides away.

(Okay so my last try at a fanfic was a complete fail but I promise this one is better.)

Excerpt:
Blinding light leaks through the crystalline clusters of rock and illuminates the azure water. She watches him rise, pride filling her chest and hope irradiating her sapphire eyes, but the light is gone too quickly and the emotion in her eyes is cracked.

Instinctively, she pulls the water to her hand and sends it chrashing down onto anyone in her path. Azula stumbles and the stream of lightning that had shot from her fingertips stops abruptly.

He is sprawled across the ground, his young, frail limbs bent in funny directions and his tattoos faded back to blue. But his chest still rises and falls ever-so-slightly, and his right hand twitches almost unnoticeably; he is alive. He is damaged and burnt and broken, but he is alive. Her face is coated with sweat and blood and tears that she didn't even realise had fallen, and her legs are sprinting towards him as saltwater clouds her vision. She is closer to him every second, closer to taking him in her arms and carrying him to safely. She barely notices when the white heats skims her shoulder, but she does notice when the electricity paints a picture of horror in front of her, his weak but agonising scream echoing in her eardrums and the scent of his scorched flesh invading her nostrils.

The avatar has fallen.

Bryke is confused ^-^

My fellow avatards, I fear that Bryke, our beloved creators of ATLA and LOK have an extreme case of confuzzlement. You see...

Recently, I watched the ATLA season 4 forbidden love trailer, and I had a bit of a think about the canon relationships, and how bryke views zutara and the zutara fandom. To be honest, I wasn't very offended by the S4 thing (except for the "all women who ship zutara will have doomed relationships", because I feel like that's going a bit far, and also, why are singling out women as zutarians with their doomed relationships?). However, I was kind of disappointed in Bryke, because I actually thought that they were above stuff like that.

The funny thing is though, everything that Bryke said about zutara that they thought would make it a bad relationship, they actually out into their own canon relationships. I'll explain...

Fic: Inbetween the Lines (Chapter Two)

Title: Inbetween the Lines
Rating: Rating: M (for alcohol, language and sexual situations)
Summary: A familiar face reappears after years and shakes up their relationship like they would not believe. AU. Post-war. Eventual Zuko/Katara/Jet.

Excerpt:
It was surreal, showing Jet around the Fire Nation; and it was kind of ironic too. There was a time they both had a personal vendetta against the very country in which they stood. As it were, Katara showed Jet the various sites that were becoming quite the tourist attractions.

“Amazing, isn’t it?” Jet asked as they walked on the stone streets.

“What is?”

“How beautiful this place can be on the outside but internally it’s a whole different story,” Jet said, passing by a man trying to swindle potential customers into playing a game of chance with the three cups and a rock challenge.

Katara glimpsed at him from the corner of her eye. “And yet here we are, me being involved with its leader while you used to be his friend."

Fic: Inbetween the Lines (Chapter One)

Title: Inbetween the Lines
Rating: Rating: M (for alcohol, language and sexual situations)
Summary: A familiar face reappears after years and shakes up their relationship like they would not believe. AU. Post-war. Eventual Zuko/Katara/Jet.

Excerpt:
Zuko was about to make a retort when there was a knock on the door. He told the person to come in and an advisor stepped in.

“Sorry to interrupt, sire, but there is a young man here that requests your audience.”

Katara and Zuko shared a look.

“It couldn’t be…” she said in disbelief.

Zuko looked at his advisor. “Did he give a name?”

“Yes, my lord. He said his name was Jet.”

Katara gulped.

Zuko’s eyes widen just a notch.

“Let him in.”

She gasped.

The advisor followed his order and a moment later, Jet made his appearance.

“Well, well. This week has just been one surprise after another,” he stated with a grin.

Fic: Smoke in My Eyes (Chapter Five)

Title: Smoke in My Eyes
Rating: Rating: M (for adult themes, alcohol/tobacco use and sexual situations)
Summary: AU Modern Day. As she was leaving, she later encountered a chanced meeting, which sent a domino effect of events that will leave everyone involved reeling. Jet/Katara (briefly), Katara/Zuko.

Excerpt:

“Katara? What’s wrong?”

“It could be nothing, but I heard,” then she sighed before finishing, “I heard something and again, it could be nothing, but I need to know.”

Now Zuko was truly confused. “Need to know what? Katara, what are you trying to say?”

“What am I to you?”

Zuko sat down on the couch in the living room and briefly wondered how in a span of two days they went from having such intimate relations on that very couch to the conversation he was trying to make sense of right now.

“You’re someone who has become very special to me,” he finally answered honestly.

“Enough so that if your father was to object to our relationship you’d defend us?”
