A little happier than yesterday--okay maybe a lot

Firsts

X. Music Lessons

Aang woke with a start. Barely awake, he leapt up from his bed and began running towards the plaintive, yet somehow screeching sound that jolted him from sleep. Grabbing his orange cloak and staff, he raced down the corridors, bending air behind him for some speed. It sounded like Appa or some other large animal was being attacked.

Firsts - Bubbles

Another episode of Firsts.

VII. Bubbles

Kya laughed at the floating bubble. It was such an uninhibited, joyous laugh that even in his foul mood, Zuko had to smile. He looked up from the scroll he was reading to where Katara sat with their daughter. He wasn't getting much work done with them there, but they were keeping him from blowing up his desk which was always a plus.

Thinking

Sorry no fics in this post

I really wish I hadn't gotten rid of my last LJ background. That one was fine and now I'm stuck. Anyone have any thoughts as to where I can get a new one?

Better yet, I'm woefully bereft of new animes/shows/etc. to watch. Aside from taking to watching Avatar again, I have nothing else! Anyone have any thoughts as to what I should watch?

More sleeping and staring

I'm pretty sure I've written at least one fic with this theme: character A wakes up, has gushy, romantic thoughts about character B who is sleeping alongside. I'm also pretty sure Toph and Sokka are two of these characters (I'll leave it to the interested to find that fic!).

There's just something about the intimacy of sleep and night that inspires me to write about it. Zuko and Katara haven't had a turn in it..until now.

What better way to spend a Sunday?

V. A Little Surprise

Sokka laughed as his niece ducked out of the way when her boomerang came flying back at her. She peeked out at him from behind the tree she jumped behind and smiled sheepishly.

"It's kinda fast, Uncle Sokka," she said.

"Boomerangs go faster than the speed of light, Kya," he intoned, though his eyes twinkled. "A skilled boomerang thrower can track their boomerang and know exactly when and how to catch it when it comes back. Watch."

With a practiced flick of his wrist, Sokka sent his own boomerang flying. He kept his eyes on Kya, grinning at her incredulous look. He held a hand up...
