    who are they at the end of the day?

    are they a civilian? a superhero? a vigilante? a criminal?

    in the end, who is behind the mask?

    (aka a series of unrelated one shots of wc/dcu crossovers!)

    Summary

    Hakoda and Ursa got married several months ago, and have been living together in Ba Sing Se ever since in happily wedded bliss. They knew they'd have to tell their children eventually, they just hadn't expected it to happen all at once. Nor that their kids would already know each other.

    Summary

    Hakoda had been hearing rumors about the Fire Lord's son for years. That doesn't mean he is ready when the truth finally comes to light... especially when the truth only confirms the worst.
    --
    “What happened?”

    Hakoda stays quiet but he keeps his eyes on Zuko, who looks for all the world like a wild snow leopard caribou that had been cornered. His shoulders tense and Hakoda wonders, very briefly, if he might make a run for it. His jaw clenches, and he shifts to the balls of his feet.

    Zuko doesn't run.
    --
    Companion piece to "out of focus". Hakoda's perspective on those events.

    Summary

    [Sokka is five when the first mark appears. 

    It writes itself in a deep red like a wound, as if someone had carved the word “nonbender” in a messy font across the knuckles of his left hand, as if it was handwritten with a knife.

    When he asks his mother, as she applies salve on Sokka’s knuckles, she sighs deeply and says nothing for a few moments. 

    “Sometimes, spirits don’t make much sense.”

    Sokka has yet to turn thirteen when he wakes up screaming in pain, about ten soulmarks all over each other between his left shoulder and his ear, red and vivid like burning flesh. Among the few words that are somehow possible to read out of the disastrous scribbling, “disrespectful” and “coward” and “burned” and “sorry sorry sorry” are the ones that stand out the most to Sokka. He thinks, at the tender age of twelve, whoever did this to his soulmate will be sorry too, one day.

    A month after Hakoda leaves him with the job of the protector at the age of thirteen, Sokka realizes, with a bitter taste in his mouth, that he’s got more soulmarks than his entire village combined.]

    Or, to have a soulmark is to carry the vilest things that your soulmate believes about themselves on your skin.

    Summary

    Zuko cannot go home.

    He stands on the deck of his ship, the air growing ever colder, and he longs for nothing more than the warm embrace of the Fire Nation. He cannot go home, he reminds himself. But, spirits. He wants nothing more.

    [Or; lessons concerning trauma, reclaiming the past, and the changing definition of home.]
