This is a prison cell? But it's so nice
He did say it was newly refurbished
I wonder what these challenges are gonna to be
We're not sticking around to find out. There's got to be some way out of here
The air vent!
If you think we're going to fit through there, you're crazier than that king
We can't but Momo can! Come on boy go get Appa!
Eh, how was Appa supposed to save us anyway?
Appa's a ten-ton flying bison; I think he could figure something out
Well, no point arguing about it now. Get some rest, looks like you'll need it for tomorrow
Ask meme! (because i look up to you as a writer) 10 How would you describe your writing process?, 23 What’s the story idea you’ve had in your head for the longest?, and 25 What part of writing is the most fun?
(alsdjkfkds SHUT UP)
10. Already answered here!
23. What’s the story idea that you’ve had in your head for the longest?
OOF, probably the sequel to “steal the air,” which I started thinking about like....November 2020 and still have gotten very little done on it lmao. It is COMING, but it’ll probably be a hot minute!
25. What part of writing is the most fun?
LOL I did this one too here, but another part of writing that I love is finishing the oneshot/chapter so that once you edit, it’s ready to post! It’s such a weight off your shoulders to know that you don’t have to CREATE for that chapter anymore, and it feels like real concrete progress in your writing!
(fun meta asks for writers!)
Angst #11 "Nobody has seen you in days"
You picked good prompts, comfy. But it’s like pulling teeth to write these down lmao.
Taang - Angst - #11 - “Nobody has seen you in days.”
Aang landed softly on the stony ground of the Air Temple. It was quiet; he was all alone.
Or so he thought.
He turned abruptly to the voice of his old sifu. “Toph,” he replied evenly. “I thought you were at Kyoshi Island with Sokka and Suki.”
She shrugged. “Change of plans, I guess.”
Aang raised an eyebrow suspiciously. “Your change was going to the Southern Air Temple?”
“Yeah, you know. Wanted to get away for a bit I guess…
“Isn’t that why you’re here?” she asked.
The airbender fell silent, and Toph continued, “Nobody has seen you in days.”
“If we said that to you, you’d say ‘I haven’t seen anyone in years,’” he commented.
“This isn’t a joke, Aang.”
“Oh, so you can compensate for your lack of emotions with humor but I can’t?”
“This isn’t about me,” she snapped. “This is about you. You, your actions, and how your actions have consequences.”
“Thank you for pointing that out, Toph,” Aang seethed. “Never knew that until just now.”
“Do you know?” she challenged. “Because for a guy who knows his responsibilities, you sure do know how to run from them.”
“I don’t need to hear this!” he hissed.
“No, you don’t want to hear this! Because it’s the truth.”
A part of Aang’s apathetic facade cracked, and he sat down on the ground with his face in his hands.
“What do you want me to do, Toph?” he practically whispered.
Toph crossed her arms, not daring to move any closer to the airbender. Because if she inched towards him, she’d comfort him. And while he probably wanted to be comforted right now, she couldn’t do that. She wouldn’t.
She had to be tough on him, be the hard ass sifu that got his ass in gear.
Even if he resented her for it.
The earthbender took a deep breath. “Stand up for yourself, Twinkletoes. Quit being a pushover and do something for Spirits sake—”
“—You think I want to be this weak?!” he exclaimed, jumping up from his seated position. “I’m trying. Can’t people see that?? Can’t you?”
Toph fought the tears forming in her eyes. His voice was practically begging her to agree with him, to get him out of the mess.
She couldn’t do that, no matter how much she wanted to. “Unfortunately, Aang, we’re past the point of trying. Not just you, all of us. We can’t try anymore. We must act.” She turned around on her heels and began to walk away. Before she left the Avatar alone, she offered one last comment to her student.
“You know what your choices are, Aang. I hope you make the right one, but that’s up to you. Good luck."
Neither said a word as Toph walked away, but she could feel his stare burn in her back. He never looked away until she was out of his sight. Her heart filled with regret and anguish, but her head knew she made the right choice.
Even if they never spoke again.
Too many prompts to choose from, but here they are (this prompt came from the Sentence Starter Link):
