[title]: A Mountain Divides Them Apart
[summary]: Two children, betrothed for the sake of world peace. A little girl and a prince who find friendship instead of hatred. A peace that doesn’t last; two, who meet again on a battlefield and find love instead of death. Avatar retold as an “epic” tale in four arcs.
[a/n]: I’m tweaking the ages. Four years between the two of them really messes things up chronologically. I’ve made it three.
ARC 1: The Promise of Peace
DAY 3: Confession
Zuko’s not sure what he’d expected after six years, but it certainly wasn’t this. Eleven year old Katara is a short gap-toothed girl who is not happy to see him. She doesn’t even bother to say hello when the Water Tribe ships reach the harbor; she marches straight up to him—in front of the entire guard awaiting their arrival—and jabs him in the chest, declaring I’ll never marry you!
