Title: 'Was it just me, or...?'
Summery: Sokka looks behind him at Ty Lee, and suddenly wishes he hadn't...
I won't think it. Nope. Not at all. I have control over my thoughts!
It's too late, of course, and the thought has already passed merrily through his mind, making his bad day even worse.
Why had he had to look behind him to where the Fire Nation girl in pink was wringing her hair out? And what was so wrong with him, that for the briefest moment, he'd thought that she looked...well...pretty?
This is all Aang's fault.
It had to be. Sokka knew there was no way he would ever have considered a member of the Fire Nation to be cute, if Aang hadn't popped up, spouting nonsense about having friends from all Nations, and unity and whatnot.
Title: Valentines Day
Summery: Sokka always knew he had multiple admirers, but who was sending him these strange gifts? (For the Valentines challenge.)
It all started on the 12th. The Aang Gang, as Sokka was stubbornly calling them, was on the run from Azula and her assistants. They were in the middle of nowhere. So, when Sokka awoke to find a box of heart shaped chocolates by his sleeping bag, he was completely shocked. Delighted, but shocked. The obvious conclusion was that they’d come from Toph- but she gave him a disgusted look, and stole some of his precious chocolate when he confronted her.
On the 13th, he received a pink flower. Sokka couldn’t help but feel flattered that someone was giving him these gifts. Still suspecting Toph, he sought her out-but look she was giving Aang, and the fact that they were holding hands soon disproved this theory.
Finally, on the night before the 14th, he decided to stay up until he saw who was showering him with such gifts. It was exhausting, but here he was. Still…awake…
Sokka closed his eyes. He was beat. His eyes felt weighted, and they just wanted to stay closed for the rest of the night…
Footsteps. Sokka opened his eyes. Right in front of his was a pair of brown sandals. Acting on impulse, as the feet tried to walk away, he groggily reached out and grabbed the ankle.
Someone tumbled down next to him. He stood up, and looked over. A thin girl in pink stood up in front of him, and he recognized her as Ty Lee. One of Azula’s helpers.
“Happy Valentines Day, cutie!” She chirped, impulsively giving him a hug.
Caught up in the moment…Sokka hugged her back.
“You aren’t so bad looking yourself.”
