guys. guys... loki’s glorious purpose was sylvie all along. all this time he thought that he needed a throne, that he had to be lauded as a hero, a king, a god to be worth anything. all this time he was putting on airs, pulling crazy stunts, thinking he had to be something he wasn’t to deserve that validation he desperately needed. but it’s love, not trickery or deceit, that’s gonna help him realize he is worthy the way he is: because here’s someone who sees his truths, who shares his literal soul, who he can help and cherish instead of pushing away. it’s sylvie, and it was all along.
When the omega he rescued goes into heat, triggering his own rut, Derek knew trouble had only begun. He walks toward the younger wolf, standing beneath the cold shower on weakened legs, masking his nose from taking in the alpha's scent. Derek takes a few steps back, fully intending to leave the house, so as not to cause the distressed young wolf anymore pain.
"Help me, please." feeble words escape the quivering lips, and Derek stops dead in his tracks.
Okay okay hear me out: Zuko would be the one to propose to Sokka, because he would be less indecisive about it, and he would just. Kind of. Do it, whereas Sokka would have to come up with a whole thing, and although Zuko definitely cares a lot, and puts a lot of thought into said proposal, once he decided that he was going to do it, he would simply... do it.
Anyway, because he wants to honor Sokka’s culture, and he’s excited to propose, he gets really excited about making a proposal necklace. He talks to Hakoda and Katara, he comes up with this great design, and he spends hours carving it into whalebone. He messes up several times, and he starts over because it has to be perfect! Sokka will at least have the necklace for the rest of his life, if not wearing it every day.
So, when they’re in the Southern Water Tribe, Zuko brings them out by the ocean, and they look out over the water. He doesn’t wait very long into the evening to propose, because he’s impatient and doesn’t really believe in waiting for the “right” moment anyway. Sokka says yes, of course. It takes until that moment for Zuko to realize that Sokka already has a necklace that he wears all the time.
And he’s like shoot, that was stupid of me! I mean obviously, you can still have this, but I don’t know what you’re going to do with it. But then, but then, Sokka takes off his walrus-whale choker and gives it to Zuko to wear so that he can wear the proposal necklace as well. And if Zuko cries a little when they each put their necklaces on, well, that’s between the two of them.
