Korrlok Week, Day 3: “Tradition/Culture”

lantur:

This is an end-of-season 1 AU in which Korra succeeds in saving the airbenders, but loses her bending, and is locked up alongside Tarrlok. The prompt kind of merged a little bit with Day 4’s Parents/Family. :) Rated T, word count 5.6k. 

-

After Korra and the firebender leave, Tarrlok paces, too overwhelmed by nervous energy to sit down again. Besides, telling them everything - telling the truth about his past, for the first time in his entire life - has left a bad taste in his mouth and made his head and eyes ache, and part of him fears that if he sits down, he will curl up on the floor, and never want to stand again.

Korrlok Week, Day 6: “Awkward”

lantur:

This Korrlok is compliant with all of my AUs - Strings, Chiaroscuro, the Culture/Tradition-verse, anything. It’s basically just a short, simple piece describing Korra and Tarrlok in the early stages of their relationship. :)

Rated T for discussion of nudity (no sex, though), 1,800 words.

-

Tarrlok shuts the bathroom door behind him, and the first thing he does is stride across the room to the bathtub. He starts running the hot water, and then pours the scented oils in, breathing deeply as the heavy scents of lavender and chamomile fill the room.

Chasing the Dragon Full Chapter 11 Preview

kyrievali:

So Chapter 10 is taking even longer than expected. As a treat for those of you who actually follow me for fanfiction updates (all two of you), I’m posting the entirety of Chapter 11 here in advance.* It might still undergo some tweaking, but what’s here is going to be very close to the final draft. 

**Chapter 10 is more exposition and plot than anything else, so you don’t really need to read it in order to know what’s going on in 11. It will build a bit of atmosphere though, but other than that it’s a pretty standalone chapter. 

Also, I just want to say thank you to everyone who actually reads this and gives feedback. It’s really great motivation to keep me writing, since I have a tendency to start projects and never finish them. So keep reading and reviewing! (And if you want to recommend my fic to others, I’d appreciate that, as well!) Okay, ending my shameless self-promotion now…
