Title: Ember, Ash, and Kindling
Pairings: Mai/Zuko, Ozai/Ursa

Summary: After Azulon ordered her son's death, Ursa convinced Ozai his father would not stop with Zuko and they could not stop him. The royal couple fled into exile with their children. Six years later, their tenuous peace shatters with the arrival of two forces in Ba Sing Se: Avatar Aang and Prince-General Iroh.

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

The Prisoners by [livejournal.com profile] blue_lacquer was her [livejournal.com profile] avatarbigbang 2010 story. It's this wonderful Mai-centric fic about what happened to her between "The Boiling Rock, Part Two" and the series finale.

I love the relationship between her and Ty Lee in this story, and the relationship between her and her uncle. I love how we see Mai as being very much a Fire Nation girl - she saved Zuko because she loved him, but she doesn't believe in the Avatar and she's just as imperialistic as any other random Fire Nation person.

The transfer from the Boiling Rock to the Capital Prison is a major turning-point in the story. Ty Lee and Mai meet some familiar faces and life gets very much more dangerous for them.

[livejournal.com profile] blue_lacquer does an amazing journey from Mai, showing us her despair at the life of a prisoner, her conviction that she'd do what she had done again, and her figuring out that maybe the Fire Nation was wrong and maybe she can do what she wants with her life.

She also does a really wonderful job with Huu's characterization. I was very impressed by that. I love her characterization of the Warden of Boiling Rock, as well as Ty Lee and her family. There's a chapter while Mai and Ty Lee are at the Capital Prison where we have most of Ty Lee's sisters coming secretly to visit her. It's a stunning contrast to the way the only person in Mai's family reaching out for her is her uncle.

There are fourteen chapters, and the chapters are of a handy size for reading. Not long enough to require you to set aside a specific time-frame to read, not short enough to be annoying.

I've tipped into a manic phase right now, which means I can't concentrate for beans on long stuff. But I can do LOTS of memes! :D

Pick one or two or three numbers from one to twenty. Give me a prompt. Get a beer because it might be a while before I answer. :D

You will note the lack of letters. This is because I don't feel like doing AUs in this one. Or at least not being limited in which AU I write. Maybe the next one.

MEME IS CLOSED.

I have a kink. I have a number of kinks, really, but they're not being pandered to in this meme.

AtLA-only. Give me two or more characters, at least two of whom must be from different nations, and a prompt. You don't get to say who is slave to whom.

If you feel like pandering to the writer, I'm really jonesing on the Water Tribe right now.

Two requests to random passerby, three requests to the usual suspects. If you don't think you're one of the usual suspects, then you're probably not. If you're [livejournal.com profile] floranna, you are by dint of being adorable and replying so often. <3

I promise to write at least one of your requests if you provide two. If you only provide one, and it bores me, I'm just going to skip it. This is about me pandering to my kink, after all.

Someday I might write about my offline life again. Today is not that day. Reposting my [livejournal.com profile] atlaland entry for the last contest.

Rating: G
Word Count: 300+ words
Summary: Mai is happy to be back with Zuko. Azula isn't.

Give me a pairing and a title reminiscent of the sillier Harlequin titles (I recommend checking Harlequin Presents, Romance, Historical Undone, and Silhouette Special Edition for ideas. Especially Presents), and I will drabble you something very silly.

So, [livejournal.com profile] orderofthelotus said they would post the reveal list for the latest exchange on Friday. It is now Saturday after my work-shift. There is no reveal list.

Given the general incompetence surrounding the exchange, I won't be participating next year, and I will be posting my entry for this year. Right now.

Title: Party Guests
Characters: Mai, Ty Lee, Li (OC), Zhukazu (OC), Azula
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2900+ words
Summary: The young man who attaches himself to Ty Lee at Azula's thirteenth birthday party is wrong, and Mai means to protect her friend from him.
Author's Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] spyridona.

(Yes, I'll get back to my other memes eventually, but I want to play with my shinies right now.)

You may blame my newfound love of the Detective Inspector Chen novels for this entirely.

Previous installments are:
- Ozai and Lu Ten, enjoying life
- Ursa/Ozai, the first impression was... memorable

This AU is Fire Nation-royal centric, so not including at least one of them will leave me flailing as much as I did over getting Selkie-verse Bumi and Mai in the random-draw meme.

One request. Two requests to the usual suspects.

I have a list of Avatar characters and a list of a few of my favorite Avatar AUs, and I have numbered/lettered both of them. Pick a letter between A-F, one or two numbers between 1-20, and give me a prompt--mood, song lyric, whatever--and I will drabble you something based on the combination. Responses may or may not be either gory, porny, or ridiculous.

Seven slots, and the meme will be closed. Prompts from Rin, Puck, and Spyri do not count towards the overall amount of slots. Yarr.

(Avatar only, folks. And no, Crazuko isn't on the list.)

Edit: MEME IS CLOSED. I will finish to [livejournal.com profile] clockwerkchaos.

I don't want to go back here in the future, so please don't request this 'verse on any memes of mine.
