    Summary

    Booker remembers that first conversation when Nile held her hand in the fire just to see what would happen. To test herself. He does not want to be another flame to her if all he does is rend her flesh.

    Summary

    “And it’s enough?” Nile asks. “It’s enough to keep you going?”

    “It’s enough to make me love this world and so many of the people in it,” Joe says, soft but sure. “We can’t change evil. We can only try to end each day having come out on top of it, and hopefully having helped others do the same. It may never go away, but other, better things aren’t ever going away either. That’s so much more important. Vital. That’s what I’d want you to remember, if you can.”

    When you have a seemingly infinite number of days ahead of you, some will turn out well and some won't. And sometimes you can’t tell which is which until the day is over. Nile gets to experience the whole gamut with each of her new family members while finding her way through this weird, wonderful immortal life.

    Summary

    Zuko's fate could have diverged either way on many occasions. Under the catacombs. At the North Pole. On the day of Sozin's Comet. But when the scale tips the other way the day it all started, the day of the Agni Kai, he finds that destiny is not done with him just yet.

    Summary

    After Galen Erso reveals he has built a new and annihilating weapon, a team is dispatched on an expedition to an island guarded by a force called the Shimmer, where the plans that might lead to the destruction of the weapon can be found.

    The team consists of six people: an FBI agent so by-the-book he's called robotic; a soldier in Army Intelligence carrying shadows and an ulterior motive; a blind linguistic anthropologist listening for a single voice; a paramedic haunted by trauma and addiction; a physicist turned whistleblower torn open with grief; and a biologist, the daughter of Erso, who thinks she is only here to save the world.

    The Shimmer takes them in.

    And everything they carry with them.

    What returns is not the same, if it returns at all.

    Or: an ANNIHILATION AU.

    Summary

    Squeezing the phone between his ear and one shoulder, he lifted the fussy baby from her bassinet up against his other. She let loose another little whine, this one certainly audible on the other end of the line.  

    “Booker,” said Nile slowly, “is that a cat in the background?”

    He froze. “A cat? Yes, of course. This little lady was hanging out by the trash bins for my flat, squawking up a storm and hungry as hell. No mama to be seen, so I’ve taken her in for a couple of days.” There. It wasn’t a total lie.

     

    ---
    Or, Booker, exiled, drunk and alone, takes in an abandoned baby. He doesn’t tell anybody. He definitely doesn’t fall a little bit in love.
