I have actually been reasonably productive over the past week but it's mostly original stuff that I don't want to link to this identity. And while I am reluctant to let this meme become the Suki/Toph meme, have some more Suki/Toph:

Then her mouth meets Suki's, and it's only an awkward tangle--where do noses go, should Toph close her eyes if she's not using them to see anyway--but Suki is more practiced at this. Once the first moment of shock passes, she puts her arm around Toph to brace her, and the graceless position Toph has chosen shifts into something that feels comfortable and natural and not quite enough.

Toph has fought with non-benders before, both against and alongside, too much to underestimate them--but it has always seemed that their chi, however focused and graceful, never extends beyond their own bodies. Now Suki is holding Toph close, running her tongue against Toph's upper lip in a way that makes her gasp, the energy flowing through Suki into Toph and back into the earth. When Suki sets Toph onto her feet again, she's trembling. She frowns, and holds onto the stone railing hard enough to make finger-marks, and the trembling stops.

On impulse, she unwraps the bracelet from her upper arm and bends it around Suki’s wrist instead. Suki’s pulse flutters wildly, and Toph’s fingers raise goosebumps where they touch. “This used to be a star. This is all that’s left of it--this and Sokka’s sword.”

Toph can still feel the heat in the star-metal, though, and the memory of power, even in stillness. Suki’s arm feels the same.

Same story as two weeks ago.

Guess what, it's Sunday!

“The table soccer’s set up,” Teo calls from the archway. “Who’s in?”

“Oh, me!” says Toph.

“No bending,” says Teo.

Toph’s about ninety percent sure she can cheat and not get caught, but if she does get caught Zuko will be pissy the rest of the evening, and somehow winding Zuko up isn’t as fun as it used to be. Gloomily, Toph wonders if she’s growing up, or something. “You chuckleheads have fun then,” she says, waving a dismissive hand.

A thing I just started. We'll see if it goes anywhere.

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project -- published, submitted, in progress, for your cat -- whatever.

Oh hey look I'm doing this on Sunday this time!

"I know something you don't know," said Sokka.

"Honey," Suki purred, "there isn't anything you know that I don't know."

"Well, I understand the principles of fluid dynamics as applied to lighter-than-air—ow! I give, I give!" Man, those bits on the fan were sharp. And Suki's weight on his back was nice, and the press of her thighs, even through layers of sweaty padding . . . he let his cheek fall back to the ground and sighed happily.

This was going to be a Suki/Sokka/Toph PWP, but I wasn't sure where I was going with it.

Yes, I abandoned a PWP because I wasn't sure where I was going with it. I may have a slight tendency to overthink things.

Some of you may have noticed my rocking new icon, which is from a picture of Harley Quinn in a sweater by the incredibly talented and creative OniYon aka Hanie. It's been a good couple of weeks for fanart in general (I mean, many of these were posted earlier--some much earlier--but I found them in the last couple of weeks.) So here, have a picspam.

DCU, A:TLA, Girl Genius, and Chrestomanci fanarts below the cut. Look at them why don't you! )

Chronicles of Chrestomanci X Vorkosigan Saga

Miles glowered at his other-dimensional opposite number,who stared blandly back. According to Lady Alys' protocol files--and Miles would love to know who her source was for that--the title that went with the position was Monsignor, but the current holder usually just went by Chrestomanci. Either would would be an acceptable form of address. Unfortunately, and despite the man's marked resemblance to a certain tall, dark, and deliberately obtuse cousin of Miles', "Christopher-you-idiot" was probably right out.

Chronicles of Chrestomanci X Avatar: the Last Airbender

ZUKO: Azula kept trying to kill me.

CAT: Gwendolen did kill me. Twice. Or was it three times?

ROGER: Julia . . . can be really bossy sometimes?

SOKKA: Yeah, Katara too.

ZUKO: You two lose at this game forever.

Girl Genius X Vlad Taltos

AGATHA: Either we find a way to send him back where he came from, or we kill him. You may not keep an assassin who's accepted a contract on my life.

CASTLE HETERODYNE: But Misstress, he's so cute! And murderous! And fertile!

CASTLE HETERODYNE (KITCHEN): And he has such interesting ideas about how to brew coffee . . .

AGATHA: Absolutely n--did you say coffee?
