I'm MadTay, and I used to post on here with my sister a few years ago but we got busy with school and all that, but I'm back! Haha, and this story is about a character I made up named Natanie, but it will include the Avatar characters we all know and love too.
I'll post the first chapters soon, the very first one is just Natanie's back story so the second chapter will be when the story itself starts. I hope I get some readers and that you all enjoy it!
So, before I post this next chapter, I wanted to tell you guys about my one-shot idea! I don't know when I'll get around to posting it, but I have the idea in my head. . . It'll be kinda Zutara-y, but it's about the Agni Kai between Zuko and Azula, and it's based off of the song Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons. . . So, yeah! Oh, and I still plan on posting the Suki story I mentioned a long time ago, if any of you remember. I'll probably get that up this summer. Anyway, on with the story! : )
We were just a few hours away from the Fire Nation, from my family, friends, and all of my old memories. I was feeling extremely apprehensive about this trip (even though it was going to be a short one) as I sat in between Miyako and Suki on the sky bison.
"Hey, Nat," whispered Suki. I looked at her, and I could see in her eyes that she was about to explode with information.
I smiled. "Yeah?"
She continued on in a whisper. "Last night after you and Zuko came back, he and Mai got into a huge fight. Sokka overheard them, Mai was really mad at him."
Suddenly, some of my apprehension melted away, and part of me felt a little guilty for that. Only a little, though. Before responding, I took a quick look around. Everyone seemed to be either asleep for not paying attention to us.
"I don't understand, Mai's been your friend longer than I have, why are you wanting me to end up with Zuko so badly?" I wasn't upset or anything, just curious.
Suki looked around as well. "Mai's great and all, but we just don't always get along that well. . . And besides, it would be the perfect love story if you and Zuko were to end up together." She grinned at me, and I couldn't help but to return it. Suki had that effect on people, it was like her happiness was contagious; when she was laughing or smiling, you had to laugh or smile too.
We arrived. It was time for me to face all of my fears from the past. But I would at least get to see Hazen and Athena again, I was really missing them. As I looked around at the land I once called home, I couldn't help but to notice, though, that Athena was right: the Fire Nation was beautiful. But, not just in the way that it looked, but in the way everyone was acting: happy and free. It had never occurred to me before, but there probably were a lot of people like my friends and me, who just wanted the war to end, not caring who won, just as long as there was equal happiness.
"Alright," said Aang, and we formed a semicircle around him. "Zuko and I have some things to take care of at the palace, if you guys just wanna go explore and have some fun for a while." We all broke apart, and everyone starting chatting on about different things they could do.
"Nat, we have to go get Hazen and Athena!" exclaimed Miyako, grinning.
I smiled, I couldn't wait to see them. But, before I could do that, I had my own business to attend to. "Sounds great, Miyako, but I have a few personal things I wanna get worked out first. How about in a half-hour, we meet back here and go together?" I suggested.
She nodded with understanding. I turned away from the group and began walking. It was time for me to face my mother.
Thanks, I'm hoping I'll be able to post here soon. :D
I don't think I'll be able to go to the premier, I'm hoping to see it soon though. I'm so jealous that you get to go! I really hope it's at least close to being as good as the book, it seems like it'll follow the plot pretty well, hopefully anyway lol.
Haha, I may not use that line exactly, but it's definitely getting worked into the plot somewhere. XD
The ellipsis was implying how proud of you I am. I just... trailed off... stared into space... crying. T^T LOL, no, but really. I like all your characters because they have so much depth. Nat, Miyako, Athena, even terrible Tosh. ^-^ Sorry, Tosh. Zutanie forever!
By The Way~<3
