Character(s)/Pairing: Zuko
Prompt: fireworks
Warnings: none

Leave it to the sheltered citizens of Ba Sing Se to put off a killer New Years bash. With no burden of a war, they were free to be well, free. Or so they thought, at least. Every single year, different groups set off their own fireworks, lighting all corners of the sky in a beautiful and loud show of colors. Free from fear, the people could do it.

As Zuko watched, he wondered what they were doing in the Fire Nation to celebrate the holiday. No doubt, it was more spectacular, but not nearly as warm and sweet. Not that Zuko wanted sweet.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zutara
Prompt: bedpost
Warnings: it's a bedpost. and a bed. what do you think?

She was tied to the bedpost, that much she knew. How she'd ended up there, she didn't know. Perhaps she'd fallen asleep in the other room and he'd put her there?

A moment after waking, her suspicions were confirmed as Zuko appeared carrying a blue ribbon, wearing a peculiar expression. He seemed proud of himself, as if none of his plans ever went right until then. They didn't, but that wasn't the point.

Deja Vu sweaped over her for a second as he went behind her and tied the ribbon around her neck, reminding her of the time when he'd 'returned' her mother's necklace to her.

What happened after that, wouldn't make it into the show. As you all know, LITTLE CHILDREN watch it. ;D


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Kuei (the Earth King)
Prompt: dirt
Warnings: None at all

He'd seen it before, of course, being the Earth King and all, but until the avatar showed up, Kuei had never set foon on earth before. Ironic, but true. He'd not once even realized that he should care, or even realize the fact for that matter, that it was... unnatural, for lack of a better term.

But then, as they soared away from his home, from the entire city, he saw much of it down below them, almost too far to see clearly. Earth as far as the eye could see. He found himself looking forward to landing. Not just because the flight was scaring him out of his wits, but to feel it between his toes. What a wonderful feeling that would be.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Ursa (Zuko's mother)
Prompt: crickets
Warnings: death

Ursa enjoyed being outdoors, especially with her son. It was only fitting that she died outdoors, where she'd enjoyed so many wonderful, sunny days. Only, it was night, a storm had just settled, and the last thing she heard was the song of the crickets, humming in all directions. She couldn't have seen them even if her eyes could have opened. They were far too heavy now with death almost upon her.

In the morning, there was no sign of what had transpired, save for the one cricket she'd landed on, lying dead in the grass. No one noticed.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zutara
Prompt: bedsheets
Warnings: none :D

"I like the blue ones."

"No, the red."

"We can get red pillowcases and blue sheets, how's that?"

Zuko scoffed and turned away. He was never going to win this argument.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Joo Dee
Prompt: candles
Warnings: none

Joo Dee was lost, trapped underground forever, she supposed. She had been happy to accept the Earth King's invitation to Lake Laogai, but once there, too many things happened and she'd been trapped in the aftermath of the fighting and power struggle. It didn't bother her, really. She was Joo Dee and there were plenty of candles in one of the rooms, just as she'd remembered.

She would find a way out if it was the last thing she did. She had duties and responsibilities, and the other Joo Dees (that's what they called themselves, but she wasn't buying) were creepy.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zuko and Toph
Prompt: muscles
Warnings: none
Who did she think she was? So what if she was more of a guy than he was? He wasn't going to take this lying down, that was for sure.

And as he found himself in a prison of rock, he yelled, "I am not a sissy!"

In response to this, he got, "If you're so tough, let's see you get out of that." And he just knew the earthbender was smirking her blind little heart out.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zutara
Prompt: shackled
Warnings: none

"This is all you're fault, you know!" yelled Katara over her shoulder at her fellow captive. "If you hadn't..."

She was cut off as the Fire Nation warship hit a particularly large wave in the storm they were currently sailing through. The particular ship was carrying the two prisoners to the Fire Nation for sentencing, because Katara just knew there wouldn't be any of the fair trial business anyone else would have given them.

"It's just as much your fault as mine. Remember? You agreed to my idea," countered Zuko once the worst was over.

She said nothing in return until they'd safely escaped. She knew he was right. She should have said no when he proposed that they go off on their own in the middle of the night.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zutara
Prompt: turtle-duck
The creature was chewing on something, that much Zuko knew. The lone turtle-duck had somehow found something green to eat in an almost desert area. He stopped, remembering at least one time when he'd fed the same kind of animal with his mother. Pushing the nostalgia out of his head, he took a closer look at the animal and instantly stopped admiring it.

One look at the object in his hand confirmed his fear. The bouquet he'd somehow managed to track down for this "date" was almost completely gone, now lunch for the out-of-place turtle-duck and 100% useless.

Character(s)/Pairing: Sukki
Prompt: fighting fire with fire
Warnings: jealousy

Suki almost saw it as a game. Every girl they came across seemed to try to flirt with him. At first it had bothered her, seeing him brush them off without much conviction. It bothered her that he didn't put more energy into it. Pretty soon, she understood, though. He did it because he didn't care about the other girls. He did it because it bothered her.

And so, she returned the favor, letting other guys do the same with her. That got his attention, certainly. It wasn't a game to him.


Fandom: Avatar
Character(s)/Pairing: Zutara
Prompt: erotic
Warnings: duh.

His birthday party continued even after the last guests had left and the last mess had been made. Zuko, who was never a party type of guy, had looked forward to the day. Not because of the stupid streamers and confetti that Aang had insisted on for no apparent reason, but for the after party. The celebration for two scheduled directly after the over-the-top children's style birthday.

And as Katara emerged from the other room, wearing next to nothing and walking through the mess towards him, he was happy. Happy that he'd had that pole put in and that Aang had thought it was just a toy and no one else had been stupid enough to ask about it.


Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Character(s)/Pairing: Kairi, Sora, Riku
Prompt: pieces
Warnings: none

She set each piece of the puzzle together perfectly, with time. It was a difficult task, but eventually, Kairi was able to finish it.

And as Riku and Sora dueled, one fateful day, the pieces were torn apart and scattered into the sea below the treehouse.

Destiny Islands has yet to recover from the fury that resulted.


Fandom: Ouran
Character(s)/Pairing: Tamaki, Haruhi
Prompt: porcelain
Warnings: none

The Host Club was in a rush. Or, more specifically, Tamaki was in a frezy. How could he have forgotten his own daughter's birthday?! He made it a point to be in every nook and crany of Haruhi's life, but still, a date had eluded him. What a lousy father he turned out to be, he told himself.

To be fair, it was only the morning of her birthday and she hadn't even gotten to school, much less the music room for club activities. But still, what was a father to do? He looked high and low in the music room before finally abandoning it in favor of a shop not far from school.

Her face when she was presented a porcelain doll that looked eerily like her was priceless, especially considering her reaction afterwards.

"Take it away."
