The slow burn where they both love each other but think the other person doesn’t feel the same way but literally everyone in the world knows how they feel about each other.
They absolutely loathe each other but everyone around them knows that they actually totally love each other.
Royalty/Commoner ESPECIALLY when the commoner didn’t know they were royalty and feel so betrayed when they find out.
I mean really, any version of the Person A is hiding something about their identity for decentish reasons and Person B eventually finds out and is just so betrayed and Person A has some version of the “I didn’t mean for it to happen, but it did. I fell in love with you.” (Chasing Liberty is my favorite, okay?)
Also the “we’re from different worlds” version, too.
And of course Person A is trying to rescue/find/reunite with they significant other and Person B gets enlisted to help but then totally falls in love but thinks Person A really loves sigo, but when they finally are reunited they realize they really love Person B.
The Light shall lead her safely Through the paths of this world, and into the next. For she who trusts in the Maker, fire is her water. As the moth sees light and goes toward flame, She should see fire and go towards Light. The Veil holds no uncertainty for her, And she will know no fear of death, for the Maker Shall be her beacon and her shield, her foundation and her sword.
Some nice parallels between “The Blue Spirit,” and “The Crossroads of Destiny” that help tie our three central characters together:
Aang shares something in common with Zuko, who shares something in common with Katara.
Both Aang and Katara think they can foster a friendship with Zuko, who here views them as enemies getting in the way of his honor quest.
Zuko actually considers Aang’s “Do you think we could have been friends too?” line, and he reggrets betraying his uncle.
While “The Blue Spirit,” is used more as foreshadowing for Zuko’s redemption, “The Crossraods of Destiny” shows the audience that Zuko doubts his decision to betray Iroh.
In “The Blue Spirit,” Zuko’s need for his father’s love and approval outweighs the promise of friendship. In “The Crossroads of Destiny,” it outweighs the love he bears for his uncle (although, as I mentioned, he does show some regret).
I felt him give a slight twitch in my arms. “Be still,” I whispered. He prized his eyes open and looked up at me. His tongue sought to moisten his lips. “What are we doing?” he croaked.
“We’re standing very still in the middle of an avalanche,” I whispered back. My throat was so dry it was hard to talk.
“I think I could stand” he offered weakly.
“Don’t move!” I ordered him.
He took a slightly deeper breath. “Why are you always near me when I get into these sort of situations?” He wondered hoarsely.
“I could ask you the same,” I retorted, unfairly.
