Excerpt: He always tells himself it’s the last time as he helps her reach her high. He always tells himself that he won’t let his eyes linger on the swell of her breasts, a sign she always takes to mean that he wants her to drag him into the nearest closet and have her way with him. Because they’re just friends and friends don’t play cops and robbers until they’re lying on the living room floor naked and panting.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Ch. 34, The Forest Again excerpt
During the finale, after Tonraq, Lin, Su and the metal clan soldiers leave Korra, she sort of jumps right into action to go give herself up to the Red Lotus. But in that small moment of her being left alone at the bottom of the mountain, I thought of this HP text comparison. I think a part of Korra went into this surrender believing she wasn’t going to come out alive. So for the “alone” prompt of Korra week, I imagined her head running through similar thoughts as to Harry’s before he also gave himself up for something he wanted to protect.
I know this isn’t the fanciest editing, but I didn’t feel like drawing it all, and I just wanted to get the concept out there before it got too late in the evening. I don’t have the actual book with me, so I apologize if the text excerpts aren’t exactly correct.
He knows she spends a lot of time at Air Temple Island teaching new air benders. She’s always been a good teacher, patient and kind. He can even remember learning from her and the excitement she expressed. How she seemed to care so much about how well he did.
And now he was barely allowed to see her. Banished to roaming the world, helping the other benders keep the peace for Avatar Korra while still honing his skills.
Of course, the pretext had been masked with good intentions. Tenzin had said it would do well for some young and well-trained airbender to travel and accomplish said keeping peace. But it had been made in the late evening when he had caught the two of them kissing down by Yue’s Bay. She had been furious and decided to never speak to her father again, which lasted all but two weeks.
It took two weeks for Kai to realize that there was no reason he could travel back for a few hours to see her. When his head popped into her window, he was greeted with a shriek of surprise before a long-needed kiss.
