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

Meme is CLOSED.
My entry for the [livejournal.com profile] atlaland New Visions challenge. Just because I'm a mod doesn't mean I can't make entries!

The point of the game is to come up with a quick concept for another series in the AtLA universe. Of course, there are extra points for fleshing out your concept because I love things like that. It makes a neat little scrapbooks of ideas - characters, concept, images, music.

Earthquake Weather )
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.

So, the only thing not taking a backseat to my Maiko Big Bang until it's finished is my [livejournal.com profile] atla_crackfic story. And even that's on hold until April.

Seriously. Maiko Big Bang has devoured my brain.

Also, it probably needs more Maiko.
Title: An Ounce of Blood
Characters: Mai, the Warden
Rating: G
Word Count: 800+
Summary: Mai is eight and she is supposed to go to the Fire Nation Academy for Girls in a week. Only her parents haven't come to fetch her from Uncle Naruzi's house.
Author's Note: This is my second story written for [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts 2011.

Title: The Moon and the Ocean
Characters: Katara, Yue, Northern Water Tribesfolk
Rating: G
Word Count: 800+
Summary: With an afternoon off from her waterbending training, Katara tries to get to know Princess Yue and learns just how different the Northern Water Tribe is from the Southern.
Author's Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts 2011.

The Moon and the Ocean )
I'm writing an AU where Yue lives and she goes with the Gaang as far as Ba Sing Se, but I am having the problem of not really having a clear grip on her personality. This makes it tricky to write her actually having scenes with the Gaang and Jet and other such folks.

(Note: the scenes with Jet aren't in the fic I'm writing but I'm trying to write them as a personality exercise and so not working.)

So! Thoughts on Yue, please.

Clarification: Thoughts on Yue's personality, please.
Because it made me giggle.


"Um, hi, Zuko here-"

Katara cut him off. "You're late!"

"... what?" Okay, not liking visions involving Aang or no, he really needed to study how these things went before he just went waltzing up to Aang's people. They never acted the way he expected them to.

"We already had the eclipse attack, we lost, and our parents were captured by the Fire Nation! You're late! You were supposed to come before then and prevent that!"

There were so many, many answers to her rant, but he could safely shove all the ones involving the phrase "no, I wasn't" under a rock. A rock to be set on fire and dropped off a cliff.
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.

Fandoms: AtLA, Transformers, PotC, Sailor Moon, Jackie Chan Adventures

- Iroh: Dragon heartstring and walnut
- Jeong Jeong: Hippogriff feather and hazelwood
- Piandao: Veela hair and hawthorn
- Pakku: Kelpie hair/dragon heartstring and sequoia wood

- Xin Wan: Acromantula web and Japanese ash
- Liu: Phoenix feather and gingko wood
- Hyo: Thestral hair and black ironwood

- Ursa: Basilisk skin and kaya wood
- Hakoda: Fairy wings and madrona wood
- Bato: Mermaid hair and sequoia wood

[Spyri] They may speak an East Asian language, but they are based on Inuits so North American woods. >_>
After reading this fic, you may be compelled to ask, "Bex, do you know anything about Valentine's Day, or were you raised under a rock?"
