    Summary

    The girl doesn’t know pain, wasn’t made for pain.
    She was made to inflict it.
    And that, she did well.

    Summary

    “Bitch. You can say bitch.”

    “I’m not going to say that.

    “It’s accurate. And no great betrayal of your deeply held feminist principles if I give you my explicit permission to do it. Really. You can call me a bitch.” She points to herself. “Bitch. It’s easy. You try.”

    “No! – I’m not going to call you a bitch, Azula.” She sighs. “It’s almost like you want me to hate you.”

    =========

    Frustrated with life at the snobby, elite Ba Sing Se Academy she'd won a scholarship to attend, Katara, a fourteen year old would-be revolutionary, begins sneaking out of the upper ring at night to cause trouble. It only gets really dicey when the great-granddaughter of the deposed Fire Lord Sozin, a girl with razor-sharp eyeliner, gets involved.

    or: getting caught shoplifting with the girl you hate most in the world can be a very moving experience, actually.

When she arrives, she discovers that her research partner is her former roommate, former teammate, former best friend, former, well, everything, who she hasn’t seen since they graduated from college five years ago.

    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.
