A/N: This request was also sent with another for Sauron. It will not be posted until all are done, just because I have no idea how to write it. :)
Warnings: Mentions of war
My bare feet padded against the cold, wooden walkways that weaved their way through the realm of Mirkwood, the light clinking of elvish armor accompanying my soft gait as two elves, clad in golden armor, silken hair flowing behind them, led me to the throne room.
Summary: Katara never thought she’d take shelter from the Water Tribe in the Fire Nation. Zuko never thought he’d build a life with someone he is only supposed to be seeing for fun. And neither one knows just how close their countries are to self-destruction.
[For Zutara month, Day 1, “Mistletoe”]
I wonder if a little hope is worse than none.
hundred years ago, when the Fire Nation attacked the Air Temples, my people
knew the Southern Water Tribe was next. The Northern Water Tribe warriors
sailed south to help their kin, and together, we beat back the Fire Nation,
with the Earth Kingdom delivering the final blow that forced Sozin to stand
down, even without the Avatar.
the northerners wanted something in return. During their first raid, the Fire
Nation had burned our library and taken as many waterbenders away as they
could. The northerners offered protection from the still angry Fire Nation, but
at a price: we had to move all our waterbenders behind their wall, where they
would accept the Northern way of life and style of bending. The chief of the
south agreed, but kept the rest of the tribe down south, unwilling to lose all of
our cultural heritage. It was a heavy blow that the South never recovered from.
A few of the waterbenders defied the North’s help; there were even rescue
efforts to free the Water Tribe prisoners that had been captured, but no one
who sailed to the Fire Nation was ever seen again.
passed, and an uneasy peace settled over the world, with the North claiming
more and more sovereignty over the South for “saving” us; we sometimes thought
it would have been better if they had never come at all. Then, for the first
time in generations, a Water Tribe girl was born outside the Great Glacier
Wall. And the North knew they had to get her back behind it at any cost.
For @vixvizus. Legion spoiler: Varian also dies. But since Stormwind is a monarchy, his son has to take the place as the King of Stormwind, whether he likes it or not.(Here is the following Warchief Sylvanas and here The Epilogue to both lists)
Ghost Varian:Anduin as king? Over my dead cold body!
Anduin: DAD! Ghost Varian: What? I can make that joke, since it’s about, you know, me. Anduin: Be so kind and do it somewhere I can’t hear it… Anduin:(Mumbles) I don’t want to be a king.
The Council of Three Hammers:
Muradin: Okay, maybe we can, I don’t kin… Lend him a manual? Moira:
What manual? Falstad: Muradin means How to Rule Yer Kingdom, Handy Manual for Beginers. Ya know, that lil’ book… Moira: Should I be bothered we have such a thingy? Muradin: Ya should be more bothered that it’s ex libris Magni…
Tyrande: I give King Anduin my sincere condolences just as well as my congratulations. While it may seem harsh to say, I do believe he becoming the king is a change to better.
Mekkatorque: Well, not like anything is going to change much for us Gnomes. Maybe I just won’t have to start every diplomatic conversation with him “Hey, down here.”
Velen: While loss of King Varian is very tragic for everybody, I think that Anduin is the best leader his people could seek. It is important for the leader to be in touch with the Light… Or… Well, other spiritual entities.
Genn: Those fuckers killed Varian? What the hell? I swear the Gilnean forces are going to crush the Legion! I mean, we don’t stand much chance now, Anduin is too young to be a king. He should leave it all up to me and the Dwarves, and do something safe, like… Read a book or pray.
Tess: I give it a month before my father realizes that neither me nor Anduin are married… (Heavy sigh)
Aysa: Good gods, I don’t know… Are congratulations in place? Should I offer him mental support over his dad? Oh well, I just play some Jihui with him, that should do both.
Thrall: Pragmatical part of me says, that we are once again closer to the peace with the Alliance. However, I know how hard it is to become a leader in such a young age and how pressing the feeling of being responsible is… I think that Anduin will do well, but he should surround himself by friends, just not to be alone.
Vol'jin: I do not really thin’ dere be much change happenin’. But I actually couldn’t care less. Since I am, ye know, dead.
Spirit of Vol’jin: High-five? Ghost Varian:(High-fives Spirit of Vol’jin)
Baine:In case Thrall is serious about that friend thing… Maybe I should visit Anduin in Stormwind… Just in case. And learn Jihui, because I will most likely run into Aysa there.
Sylvanas: (Furiously waves “Go Anduin!” banner while wearing Stormwind tabard with “Anduin for King″ written on it)
Genn: You are either super supportive or super sarcastic. I can’t decide. Sylvanas: (Blows party blower in Genn’s face) Doooooooot!
Lor'themar: Does Anduin drink? I could advise him how to manage drinking and ruling a kingdom of idiots at the same time. I am an expert in this field, if only I do say so myself.
Gallywix: Oh wait! I have a sign just for this occasion! (Pulls out a sign “I don’t give a fuck”)
Gallywix: I also have a sign that says “Sarcasm” in case you want it, Your Highness Greymane. Genn: Why would I want such a stupid thing? Sylvanas: Dooooooot! Genn: Okay, how much?
Ji: I think I’ll just go to the Undercity and prevent Sylvanas from making “The King is dead, Long live the King” banners from happening. And then I’ll go to Stormwind and bring tea, so Aysa and Anduin and Baine can drink some good tea while playing.
Bolvar: Great, so I decide to sit on this freezing chair no longer and I have to calm down Anduin’s mental breakdown the first time I see him since Northrend. Great, really.
Kel’thuzad: You know, bringing his father back is always an option. I could easily arrange that. No problem at all. Sylvanas: Doooooooot! Doooooooot! Muradin:(Searching for the manual) Bolvar:(Violence on Kel’thuzad) Anduin: Lord Regent Theron… Is your offer still a thing? Lor’themar:(Watches as Genn hits Sylvanas with the “Sarcasm” sign) Well, yes. Yes, I suppose.
