Traitor's Face- Chapter 44
"This is important news about Zuko." Azula crossed her arms and glared at the guards in front of her father's suite, wishing she had taken the time to put on some makeup and perhaps a touch of combat armor. Making people fear for their lives was all about the proper presentation. "My father needs this information."
The guard, for his part, utterly failed to be impressed by a fifteen year old girl in a robe and ponytail throwing out orders hours before dawn, despite the fact that- and Azula was quite sure on this point- the fifteen year old girl in question could kill him. "I am sorry, your highness. Prince Ozai's orders are very clear. He is not to be disturbed by anyone until he announces in the morning that he is ready."
Azula really did consider killing the man his affront, or at least incapacitating him and stepping on his face a little. She had already cut down loyal Fire Nation warriors in the process of freeing Zuko from Zhao's prison, and one

Sight Beyond Sight
Katara awoke to the sound of a lazy bell.
She rolled out of the narrow bed and heard Ty Lee immediately spread out to cover the freed space, but the loss of territory was secondary to the sight outside the porthole on the opposite wall. The room was would have been spacious if not for the crates stuffed along the walls, but it had been a supply room before Master Pakku agreed to take on two female crew members. The rest of the crew, Fire Navy and Northern Waterbenders both (men all), were packed into their own long hammock-filled room, but Pakku's sexism at least made him quickly agree to give Katara and Ty Lee their own space.
They probably could have made two 'beds' out of the crates and tarps in the supply room, but neither girl trusted the lock on the door, and sharing a bed was an easy way to watch over each other while sleeping.
As Katara dodged around creates to get to the porthole, she had to admit that she also liked sleeping with Ty Lee. Having anoth
Traitor's Face - Chapter 41
Mai had abandoned the color red, had forsaken status and power and in-fighting and boredom and the life she had known. She had become what her friends, what Aang and Sokka and Katara, wanted her to be. She had tried to transform into someone they could like, because she had chosen to make them her whole world.
She should have known it wouldn’t be that easy.
Mai had spent much of the voyage to the Fire Nation in her cabin, of course, letting the thrum of the ship's engine ward against sea sickness. It was a much better voyage than her last, but then, this time she wasn't planning on betraying anyone when she got to her destination. Also, there was no Jet to attack, accuse, and generally harass her. That was doing wonders for her stomach, it turned out.
On the other hand, the fact that Jet had disappeared sometime during the preparations for the journey to the Fire Nation probably wasn't a good sign.
Aang had officially surrendered to Zuko and accepted Iroh's plan

Gatherings and Scatterings
Azula returned to consciousness, slowly and painfully, to find the Kyoshi Warrior girl leaning over her.
Her first thought was to go ahead and kill Suki right there for the crime of gazing upon a Princess of the Fire Nation without permission, but before she could work up the energy for a good heart-boiling flame, she remembered what had happened.
Mai was on Zhao's ship!
With the Avatar.
Azula groaned as it came back- her attempt to kill Mai right there in the ship's corridors, the delicious look of terror in the traitor's eyes, and then the short and soggy battle with the mysterious Waterbender who had come out of nowhere to deny Azula her vengeance.
Azula squeezed her eyes shut. She had failed. She had failed to kill Mai, and failed to be aware enough of her surroundings to avoid the Waterbender's ambush. That he had gone on to beat her unconscious without her being able to so much as attempt a counterattack spoke to his skill, but he sho

Warning, there is some minor coarse language in the following
Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale and release!
Thunk. Thunk. Thunk. Thunk. Thunk. Five perfect throws, five knives glinting in the light of the full moon as they sailed through the air. Each one hitting the exact mark that Mai Satomi had intended for them to hit. If by chance they hit somewhere else then the weapon master had meant for them to hit there, rather then where the rest of her deadly instruments had struck home.
The continuous thunking and thwacking of knives against wood was therapeutic for her. It helped to release the built up stress of the day and it kept her mind off of a certain someone. Her attraction to this individual weighed heavily on her mind. The last of her easier to reach weapons had been thrown when thoughts of this individual sta

"Oh very well, since I have nothing better to do. It all started on a cold windy day."
It all started on a cold windy day. The sun was slowly sinking over the horizon. A small group of men stood knee deep in the snow of the of the South Pole.
"Are you sure it's here? I'm f-f-f-freezing!" the skinniest one said, while rubbing his arms trying to keep warm.
His captain turned to him and smiled. "Oh, it's here. The map said so."
"But C-C-Captain, they say it's been lost for over 10,000 years!" the man pleaded.
The captain stopped and checked his map one more time before looking up towards a small mountain of ice.
Once they found the entrance to a cave they slowly went into the mountain of ice. As they journeyed deeper, the air got colder, and heavier. Using torches to light their way, they slowly made it into the center of the mountain, where a large cavern greeted them.
And there it was.

"I cannot believe I agreed to this." Azula moaned, dropping her head into her palm.
"Well, you never did strike me as, how can I put this, a wuss. Can't chicken out now." Suki mocked, playfully winking at her.
"Oh believe me it's not that I'm afraid, but I can't stand the idea of sitting on a tuff of hay while more than half the people around me piss themselves. I mean it's not called a "Haunted Hayride" for nothing, if you're gonna pee yourself in fear, don't go, and save everyone the trouble." She said between her hands.
"I'll be sure to pee right on you then, Az." Katara joked, as she scanned her vanity finding just the right mascara.
Azula grunted, rolling over on Katara's bed as the girls around her got ready. "What are you even putting makeup on for. It's going to be dark." Azula asked through Katara's pillow.
"Are boyfriends are gonna be there." Toph mocked fixing

"Who the hell is she and how did she get here?"
"Miss Bookworm doesn't know something, stop the presses." was the smart alecky response from the more courageous one of the group gathered around the incapacitated girl.
"Very funny, G.I Jane. Can we please focus more on finding out who she is?" snapped the Bookworm.
Heaving a sigh and rolling her eyes G.I Jane spoke, "I guess but does it really matter who she is? I'm more interested in knowing how she got here."
"You do have a point. As far as I know 'It' hasn't disappeared. Or it has and she didn't want to worry us by saying anything, until she managed to recover it." mused the Bookworm more to herself then the others.
"Well whoever she is, she sure does know how to have a good time." spoke a chipper voice that sent chills down the spines of everyone gathered.
"Are you incapable of thinking about other things besides having fun and prancing around l
