Disclaimer: I don't own Avatar: the Last Airbender. If I did, there would be girls dating in that as well as Legend of Korra.

Summary: Mai has a car and Katara needs a ride, or seven firsts for high school students Mai and Katara.

Author's Note: I'd say this was the Maitara high school AU nobody asked for, but somebody did, and I have the ask to prove it. For avatarsymbolism.

Shortfic: Where the Morning Light Shines

Disclaimer: I don't own Avatar: the Last Airbender. If I did there would have been a lot more boring politics

Summary: More than a hundred years before, when the Avatar disappeared, life began to ebb out of the world, plunging the world into chaos. With his return, hope and vitality returned, and with them, a mad rush for power by clan chieftains, eager to make kingdoms out of the ashes of the old order. In the old Fire Nation, two chieftains remain, Mai in the west, and Zuko in the east. Each awaits the day that the other will seek to claim all of the Fire Islands for themselves.

Author's Note:
Written for Maiko Week 2016. Takes place in the Life Spirit AU. You can find a masterlist of commentfics and some meta about the 'verse here: [link] and some additional meta here: [link].

Summary:
Zuko's pretty sure he has a ghost of a chance of escaping Azula's trap.

Shortfic: On the Wings of a Boar

Disclaimer: I don't own Avatar: the Last Airbender. If I did, I would never have time for my quest to write the Great American Novel.

Summary: Toph has always had people trying to help her and hold her back. Or, the story of a little girl in a great big household.

Shortfic: The Gleaming Darkness

Disclaimer: I don't own Avatar: the Last Airbender. If I did, I wouldn't be able to write something like this, lest somebody assume it was canon.

Summary: Firelord Ozai makes Mai's options very clear to her. She has none.

Warning: Rape by coercion, violent fantasies, general horribleness.

Author's Note: Written, dear God, two years ago for a prompt in the [livejournal.com profile] avatar_kinkmeme: "Ozai seduces Mai and tries to convince her that she is a suitable Fire Lady for him." The seduction idea got lost somewhere along the way.

Five Worlds in which Sokka Never Did Manage to Propose to Suki, and One in which He Didn't Have To

Disclaimer: I don't own Avatar: the Last Airbender. I don't own Twilight. I don't own NCIS. I don't own Star Wars. I don't own Harry Potter. I did however, have to go to high school, and that's as close to ownership I come to anything in this fic.

Summary: There are so many ways for it to blow up in their faces, but that's what makes it fun.

Author's Note: Written for [personal profile] mihnn in the [livejournal.com profile] orderofthelotus fic exchange. Also, I would like to take this chance to thank [livejournal.com profile] lavanyasix and [livejournal.com profile] floranna for betaing this. (Thank you!)

Good People and Death Eaters story: Mercies

Author's Note: This fic is part of the Good People and Death Eaters universe, and I strongly advise you read the previous stories, "Blurring" and "Spectacles" first. The universe is a dystopian AU with slavery, but all of the stories within are gen or gennish het.

Disclaimer: In case you were wondering, JKR was never this horrible to everybody.

Summary: Harry faces the Dark Lord for the first time and learns the true price of failure.

Disclaimer: If I owned White Collar, there would be magic.  Or Aliens, one or the other.

Summary: Neal has more than one secret he's keeping from Peter, but as Peter draws closer to one, he draws closer to all of them.  Dragon!Neal AU.

Author's Note: As this was written for the second round of[livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan's sentence fest, the fic below contains cruel and fiendish torment of the common comma and other niceties of grammar, and it's non linear.  Each of the headers is a prompt from the fest.

Shortfic: Holding This Breath

Disclaimer: If I owned Avatar: the Last Airbender, I would have somehow found a way to be even meaner to Zuko. I guess it's a good thing I don't own it.

Summary: The problem with Zuko's exile is that every ocean has become enemy waters for a Fire Nation Prince, and when his ship is captured by the Northern Water Tribe, he has nowhere to turn for help.

Warning: captivity, major character death, bullying the powerless, humiliation.

Author's Note: Written for [personal profile] unjapanologist who won my entry in the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan charity auction. Which means I started this seven months ago. Yeah, I know. Anyway, thank you for your generosity to a worthy cause,[personal profile] unjapanologist!

Disclaimer: If I owned White Collar, there wouldn't be any Nazi treasure.

Summary: Moz worries that Neal's changing.  Episode tag for episode 1.7, Free Fall.

Author's Note: I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] tjs_whatnot, as part of the [livejournal.com profile] collarcorner fic exchange.  They wanted Moz.  I hope he's not too much of a high strung little drama fiend.

Shortfic: The Life and Times of Ezra Smith

Disclaimer: If I owned White Collar, Kate would have been a character, not a plot device.

Summary: In which Neal burns an alias, Moz gets cabin fever, Kate plays Scheherazade, and Diana and Clinton amuse themselves at the expense of others.

Author's Note: This was originally written for a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] collarkink, that called for one of Neal's aliases to have a complicated cliche storm of a backstory.

Shortfic: Yesterday's Flame

Disclaimer: If I owned Avatar the Last Airbender, Jet would have lived to cause trouble for everyone. And you know he would be trouble.

Summary: When Zuko and his uncle brought Jet home from under Lake Laogai, they had no idea he was a firebender, or just how deep his hatred for the Fire Nation really ran.

Warning: Jet has some pretty messed up ideas about rape victims that are mentioned in passing.

Author's Note: Written as part of [livejournal.com profile] atlasecretsanta, for [livejournal.com profile] suzukiblu. Yes, I know she ran a meme with firebender!Jet, but when I started this way back in what, November? December? she hadn't started it yet, only written a commentfic fill about it and mentioned she liked the idea. Finally finishing this means that I can now go read the fills for that meme. (Seriously, this was due on Christmas Eve, and it's now August, just over eight months later. That's really pathetic. Bad Fish.)

This follows the drabble, "Rising Steam".

Four 1000 word Firebender Suki fics from S1

These were written for the [livejournal.com profile] atlaland Work at Your Own Pace Seven Fanworks Challenge, where I chose Suki. Since I posted three of my fills as graphics (and the two wallpapers aren't set in the Firebender Suki universe) I'm only posting the artwork I made for this universe and the four one thousand word fics . The artwork is intended to be this universe's banner. All fics are 1000 words long and take place either before or during this AU's version of Book One, Water.

Shortfic: Down to Sleep

Disclaimer: If I owned White Collar, this would be a DVD extra.

Summary: The first two weeks after Neal gets out again, the world is spinning too fast, and he can't catch his breath.

Author's Note: This was originally written for a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] collarkink, that called for vampire!Peter and Neal as Peter’s human pet and private blood bank. I couldn't figure out why on earth I wanted to fill this prompt so bad, given my deep dislike of vampire stories, or for that matter why I wanted to write gen with it. Then, about a day after I finished, it hit me. It's vampirism as a metaphor for disability. It's a fic about accommodations.
