I'd meant for this to just be a one shot drabble thingie but then I realized I can't write Irana as well as I thought and I have to jet to work anyway.


At the ports at which she was welcome, and Fire Nation messenger hawks were allowed to roost, Irana always recieved messages. There were stringently polite messages from Shaozu and only slightly less formal ones from Xi Feng, scrolls of besotted gushing from Dan Dan, incensed and sometimes hysteric notes from Zhi, and occasionally a wobbly ink drawing from Li. It was seldom that her parents wrote to her, especially since her messages to them were mostly formal accounts of conquests and official reports of whatever items of value she had managed to acquire. So it was nothing short of surprising when, among the other messages awaiting her at the port on a small backwater island, one of them bore her father's seal.

You will be married, it said, according to his traditions, not ours. And that was all.


OH THANK GOD, I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME.

Her fingers shook as she read the scroll twenty more times before she could breathe.

She pressed the unfurled scroll to her chest, her lips curling at the corners, and let the tears flow freely from her eyes for a few minutes before drying her eyes on her sleeve and sniffling loudly.

"Thank you, Daddy," she whispered. "Oh, thank you."





It was nearly two months before she saw him, snapping down his staff behind his back to wait for her ship to finish lining up to the shore, looking cool-eyed and handsome as he watched her come halfway down the gangplank before cupping his fist in his hand and bowing. She returned the bow, then raised her eyes and grinned the widest he had seen since the night he left for his pilgrimage.

"Your dad around?" she asked.

"Uh, yeah," Yun blinked. "Trouble?"

"Nope," she turned to the two crewmen and gave them a sharp salute. "Just get on with the routine, guys. I'll be back in the morning."

"Captain know about this?" Lao asked.

"Of course he knows," she reassured him. "You think I'd go bother the Avatar without permission? I'm brash, not crazy."

Lao and Yi exchanged glances, then shrugged, and walked back up the gangplank.

"What's this about?" Yun asked her, in a low voice.

Irana looked up at the sunset over the sea, and the moon rising in the sky. "I got a question about Air Nomads," she murmured back, doing her best not to sound thrilled. "And he's the only source, isn't he?"

Of course I want to play it! I want to play anything with you, ever, pumpkin, I love playing with you.

Silly thing. ♥

I have so much love for Yun. He's a cutie pie.

Once they were out of sight of the ship, but just before they reached the village, she reached over and squeezed his hand, without looking at him. "It's history stuff. Pretty ancient. I'm not even sure he'll remember."

Irana drew in a deep breath, and then exhaled smoke from her nose in her old, showoff way as she quickly disentangled her fingers from his before they had a chance to get comfortable.

"Quick question for you, though. How much does your mom still hate me?"

Oh, totally.

"Best I'm going to get, I suppose. For a while, anyway."

Quietly, she was fighting a struggle within herself. What if Yun did know exactly what an Air Nomad marriage would entail? Would Avatar Aang talk about that kind of thing?

Would it really be okay for her to even ask?

She liked the Avatar. He was a really likeable guy, even besides being the spirit of the world. He was Yun's dad, and she could see where Yun got a lot of his wonderful qualities from him; not just his teaching but the love and support he gave his family and personal friends, even her dad, who didn't act like a friend, but Irana understood her dad and she was pretty sure Avatar Aang kinda understood him, too.

Katara's voice peaked at the top of her lungs and then quieted again, and Irana wrinkled her nose, grinning nervously. It's perfectly natural to live in mortal terror of your mother-in-law, whatever country you're from, I'm pretty sure.

Startled, Irana stumbled along after Yun, dropping the brush, and gave Avatar Aang a frantic look.

Aang, knowing better than to stick his nose into people's business when he wasn't needed, gave her a purposefully clueless grin and waved from around his bison, then blew Hika back up onto Appa's back as she tried to climb down.

"Let them have some peace, okay? You'll find out about everything eventually. Do I need to make you meditate for another two days and practice patience again?"

"No," Hika groaned, and got back to work.

Irana, meanwhile, was staring at Yun and feeling extremely worried. "What's the matter?" she asked. "Do you- I mean- don't you-"

Date: 2006-11-26 08:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ameonna.livejournal.com
Irana furrowed her brows and lowered her eyes, blinking back tears. "You don't want to? I- I didn't see it that way, but I- I figured it was just so we wouldn't have to bring the court into it and make everything all political and messy- it's not what I wanted but it's not- I don't think it's like that and-" her voice broke and she exhaled a faint whisp of smoke. "Don't you want to marry me?"

Date: 2006-11-26 08:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ameonna.livejournal.com
Irana lifted her hand to hold his hand against her face, and nuzzled it, and then dropped even the slightest trace of formality and flung her arms around him, burying her face in the side of his neck. "I need you. I missed you. I can't- It hurts and it makes me sad but at least I don't have to keep missing you and I can touch you if I want to and it isn't what I wanted but if it's all I can get then it's enough."

Her mouth found the side of his neck, hot and almost as wet as her tears, and she kissed him repeatedly, mumbling as though trying to convince both of them. "It's enough. Angi, it's enough."

Irana turned a deep shade of red and mumbled, "Be right there," giving Yun a dizzy, pleased look that clearly said she didn't particularly want to tear her hands away from where they were comfortably tucked under the waist of his pants, her lips parted around a grin that made it seem like he'd kissed away a good part of the ages they'd spent pining for each other.

They spent the next few minutes laughing and knocking the hay out of each other's clothes and Irana's hair, until she gave up and took it down, shaking out black ripples past her shoulders and reaching up to run her hand over his head, caressing his arrow. "See, you don't have to worry about this. You sure I shouldn't shave mine, too?" she teased, before flowing against him and kissing him hungrily, fingers dragging over the back of his neck.

She resolved that unless she was on her ship or on duty, she'd be touching him every second, and when their lips finally broke, she squeezed his hand.

Irana grinned up at him, eyes sparkling, and tugged him toward the door, winking. "After dinner. If your mom doesn't kill me first," she half-teased, half-promised.

All night. Oh, that would be nostalgic. She wondered what a Water Tribe ceremony, like Avatar Aang had mentioned, would entail, and almost laughed at the impulse to mumble that someone better marry them before she was tempted into doing something dishonorable.

Breathless, still holding his hand, hair loose, pink cheeked and grinning foolishly, Irana almost forgot where she was going until she was standing over Water Master Katara's dinner table.

Irana did her best to sound confident and not degenerate into a blushing pool of quivering terror. Yun squeezing her hand did a lot for that.

"Well, if you need something warmed up, I mean- um. Since it was kind of my fault- um." No. No firebending in front of Yun's mom. Damn. Oh, that was mistake number one.

She realized suddenly what she must look like, in her rumpled black silk with her hair down (nobody other than Yun had seen her with her hair down outside of a bath since she was ten). Ergh. Mistake number two.

And her collar was still open enough to see her necklace, if not her underthings, and while she had warned Avatar Aang what she was here to talk about, she hadn't said so much as a word about it to Yun's mom.

Oh, she was going to die. Ice spear made of whatever that wonderful smell was, right through her chest, yup. Irana's face was very, very pink indeed.

Irana leaned up to nibble his earlobe.

"I don't always want to," she confided, breathily, her fingertips tickling past his navel. "Haven't I told you before that you make it very hard for me to be a good girl?"
From: [identity profile] ameonna.livejournal.com
"Relax, flyboy," she purred, watching their altitude over his shoulder. Appa seemed fine.

Her fingers dropped another inch, then two, and she sought him with her hand outside his pants. "Just a little grope. We've waited this long, we're almost there. I'll take my prize after I pass whatever crazy trial your mom picks for me."

Irana bit Yun's earlobe, very lightly, and tried not to laugh. It wasn't easy. He made her really happy.
