What is this magical business?!
Hey, everyone, check it out!
Do any of my followers want to read the second chapter of my Percy Jackson/Avatar fanfiction and give me suggestions and see if it’s all okay?
I’ll give you a cookie, I swear
Hey guys, so this is the first chapter of my Percy Jackson/Avatar the Last Airbender fanfiction. The title isn’t set, exactly, so if anyone has any ideas please share! This will also be going up on my fanfiction.net, so be sure to read and review it on there.
Waterbender Percy Jackson and his friend Grover leave their village in the Northern Water Tribe for a life of adventure aboard a ship of rebels set on subverting the Fire Nation. Crossover. 2,182 words.
The water lapped at the side of the ship as if reaching for it, trying to grasp onto the sides like begging children. Percy kept his eye trained on those little waves — he was afraid of what he might find if he turned around. He was left behind to slow down the fire nation soldiers that were after him and the crew. They were — no doubt — right on his tail, although he wasn’t too willing to look back and see just how close they were. He half-ran, half-skated on the ice he bent up from the sea. He was too far away to try and bend a water spout to catapult him onto the deck of the ship, and too close to the soldiers to have time to think of any other plans.
He felt an intense heat growing on his back, and he ducked just as a fireball soared over his head right where he was a second ago. It landed on top the icy sheet beneath his feet, which immediately cracked and melted beneath him
It looks like they’re within firing range now, he thought as the ice supporting him gave out and he fell into the water.
WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLLLLL
“You mean like Amon?” He squeezed her shoulder reassuringly and Korra stiffened slightly at his touch before relaxing and leaning into him. He wrapped an arm around her shoulder, pulling her against him in a sort of half-hug.
“I’m not afraid of him,” she whispered harshly, “It’s just a big mess to have to clean up. Everyone’s counting on me and for some reason I can’t seem to get it right […]”
Inspired by Katrina, aka fangirlingforeverz.
She is the author of this amazing Borra fanfiction, “Beautiful”. THE FANFICTION HAS SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 4.
Uhm. I don’t ship Borra, but this is the only ship that is not making my heart hurt right now. And they are adorable. And I liked the fic so much I decided to drew out a part of it.
They are sitting on the stairs outside, btw.
SO THIS HAPPENED.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
I’M SO HONORED AND I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE RIGHT NOW.
DEAR LORD THIS IS GORGEOUS <3333333

Reasons to love Sukka: #7 Their Reunion
If there’s one thing these two are pro at, it’s reunions. Their reunions aren’t just “HEY! Long time no see!” No. Their reunions are as funny and amazing as they are.
What’s so great about this is the fact that neither of them thought they’d ever see each other again. In their minds, their love was supposed to be a one time thing that the war would never let happen, but here they are, together again.
This also gives us a chance to see Suki’s playful side, a way to show that she really is a good match for Sokka. She isn’t someone who is just trying to make him this perfect warrior and take away an important part of his personality; she’s a girl who is trying to make him stronger and become a better warrior, which is really important to Sokka.
Then there’s Sokka, who is basically freaking out right now. Here he really thinks he’s in trouble, but, of course, he isn’t. And then this random stranger (a very good looking stranger) kisses him. It just takes that kiss for Sokka to remember it’s Suki. A single kiss is enough to jog his memory and remember who this girl is. A single kiss left that much of an impression on him, which shows how strong their connection is.
And once Sokka realizes who this is, he’s the happiest guy on the planet. This girl who he thought he never see is back in his life, and he basically thinks he’s the luckiest guy in the world.
Suki and Sokka do reunions right. There’s an ounce of silly and a whole lot of love. It shows their playful side and shows the kind of couple they’ll become when their older. They’re gonna have some pretty lucky kids, who are going to be embarrassed all the time by mom and dad.
