Title: The Mountain
Author: LizBee
Fandom: Legend of Korra
Rating: G
Characters: Pema, Kya, Abbott Shung
Notes: (1) How do I not have a Pema icon; (2) sometimes "finished is better than "perfect"; (3) I realise that is not reassuring; (3) set early in season 2.
Summary: "Are you finding the Acolytes here a bit … strange?" Pema has a talk with her sister-in-law.

Just take it for granted that anything I post here for the next few months will have an invisible header containing apologies for late news, busyness, etc. 

Anyway, the [community profile] white_lotus Lunar New Year Exchange was a thing that happened!  My favourite part of it is surreptitiously refreshing the comm on my phone at work, waiting to see what gets posted next. 

I requested fic about Lin and Tenzin during the years when they had a (mostly) functional established relationship, and if my recipient could throw in some adventures, that would be ace.  In return, I got the wonderful "why live on the edge when you can jump" by [personal profile] dropsofviolet, in which Lin and Tenzin FIGHT CRIME.  And the crime is pretty clever, too, and based on a real one. 

Writing-wise, I produced:

"Joint Operations" for [personal profile] attackfish (Lin/Iroh, PG-13), in which the United Forces have to provide support to the Republic City Police Department in the wake of the revolution, and that means Iroh has to work with Lin Beifong.  I had some trouble with the prompt, and wound up sort of just reducing it down to its bare elements, that is, that Lin and Iroh share a great deal of professional respect, even when that isn't necessarily extended to each other's organisations. 

If I'd had more time and energy, I would have written something longer, in which they actually solved crime and fought bad guys together, but that wasn't to be.  And anyway, why would the Chief of Police and a military general be getting their hands dirty when there are all these highly trained professionals about?  Anyway, for the record, the opening scene was inspired by The Killing III, and the musings on the inappropriateness of using military forces to police a civilian population came via The Wire

Secondly, as a pinch hit, I produced "Training" for [personal profile] silly_cleo (Ikki, Jinora, PG-13).  It was really hard to choose between her prompts, because they were all great -- one was for Lin/Pema/Tenzin!  YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT SNUGGGLEBENDING! -- but once again, time was short -- I only had one free afternoon to write this -- and the idea for this small Ikki fic entered my brain and refused to leave.  If I ever have spare time again, I'm totally going to illustrate it. 

And that, for me, was [community profile] white_lotus done for the year again.  Frustratingly, I've been in a mood to write fic lately, but haven't had time.  Even though I've totally figured out what happens next in the Private Detective AU.

Title: Rebel

Fandom: Legend of Korra
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s): Lin/Tenzin
Content notes: No significant warnings apply, though Lin and Tenzin aren't playing pai sho in the fade to blacks, if that's a problem for you.
Summary: Tenzin grew up meeting everyone's expectations. Lin never met a rule she wouldn't break. But Ba Sing Se's a big city. You could find a whole new path there.

His feet had barely touched the ground when Lin threw herself into his arms, heedless of the disapproving frowns of the onlooking Acolytes.  )

Just for the record, 100 words exactly seems a lot harder now than it did the last time I tried this. My ego won't permit me to post a hundred and something words and call it a drabble (BECAUSE THAT IS WRONG! JUST INCORRECT AND INACCURATE! *EXPLODES ALL OVER THE INTERNET*) so here's, um, one double drabble and 150% of a drabble, times two.

Summary
:

Aang won his battle … but Zuko and Katara lost theirs.  

With Azula controlling the Fire Nation, it seems like the war will never end.  Aang and his friends return to Ba Sing Se to recover and mourn, while Mai escapes Azula and carries Zuko's dying message to Iroh.  

For almost a year, the world holds its breath.  The Fire Nation's resources are spent, and Azula, struggling with her own demons, realises that her father will never truly relinquish his power.  In Ba Sing Se, Mai tries to come to terms with being alive when everyone she has ever cared about has died or abandoned her.  Aang, without hope, travels the world, laying the dead to rest.  Until the answer to his questions becomes clear: Azula has to die.

Notes: This was not an easy fic to write, not least because it turned out that the 5000 words of set-up I'd envisioned turned out to be the entire (nearly) 30,000 words of story.  My eternal thanks go to my betas:  Branwyn, for her work on the early drafts and plotting;  CiderCupcakes, for her plot and character work;  Weaver for the commentary and commas.

I'll be uploading this to AO3 etc in the next few days, but if in the meantime anyone wants to read it in one handy block, an ePub can be downloaded here

Okay, I've only produced two commentfics so far, but one is 1400 words!

The Wizards Come to UNIT. In which UNIT has a Time Turner, and Ancelyn has a theory.

Currently untitled fic where Azula meets River Song. With a dash of Toph/Azula, plus dubious Mandarin and spoilers for Korra.
