Element of Love

Katara loves the wind.

There’s something so comforting, she finds, in the way it brushes past her cheeks, slips its fingers through her hair.

She thinks, in some unconscious thought, that it reminds her of Aang. Its gentle touch, its tender embrace, its playful fingers toying with her dress… it reminds her, unquestionably, painfully, of Aang.

So she steps into the warm breeze and lets it wash over her like a lover. She turns up her palms and welcomes it into her arms. She hears laughter in the air.

In this moment, the wind embraces Katara and Katara embraces Aang.

Author's Notes: More inspiration from The Fortuneteller.

 

The Beginning

Her eyes widen in surprise. “Wait, what did you just say?”

Her brother shrugs, his eyes observing the majestic form of the Avatar. “Nothing, just that Aang is one powerful bender.”

She turns to Aang… the Avatar, her friend, the goofy little boy with a world of worries that never reach his smile. The boy who wove her a necklace of fishing line. The boy who makes her smile at his childishly sweet adoration. The boy she trusts with all her heart. (The boy she trusts with her heart.)

The faintest of realization settles over her. “I suppose he is.”

Prompt: 014. Clouds
Warning(s): mild aangst, DoBS
Word Count: 100
Summary: "Just as you reshaped those clouds, you have the power to reshape your own destiny." [set during DoBS]
Author's Notes: Inspired by The Fortuneteller? You guessed it!


A Path Set in Stone

Aunt Wu had told him, so very long ago, that he could shape his own destiny—regardless of what she had seen in the fragments of bone that had littered her room—and reshape it to his own dreams and desires.

But as battle and war and death raged on around him, his eyes fell on Katara—her water whip, her fierce eyes, her too big heart (had she felt his lips on hers?)—and he wondered if he really could.

He faced the Fire Lord’s palace and wondered if his destiny was to do anything but fight and die.

All three of these are really nice. I like the one in the middle the most. I'm also impressed with the fact that not only did you write actual drabbles of 100 words, but you didn't end up with vague incoherency trying to pass for poignancy like most people do in very short fic. You actually told small distinct and moving stories in a concise manner. Well done.

Thank you!

I think drabbles are actually harder to write because of the things you mentioned. Writing a story with plot within the confines of a hundred words is quite the challenge (especially when you're as wordy as I am).

Thanks again for reviewing! I really appreciate it.
