Genre: Romance, Humour
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Pairing: Zuko/Katara
Characters: Zuko, Katara
Challenge: Capslock Zutara Week- #6 Of Epic Proportions
Rating: Teen for mature content (Mentions of sex)
Summary: "AND SHE ENDS UP WITH THE LAST SANDBENDER?” It's safe to say that Katara is not happy with how her favorite series ended, romance wise. However, Zuko offers her some comfort.
Disclaimer: I own nothing! Not the characters, the show, nothing! Or I wouldn't be writing this fanfic. No need to sue me!
Author's Notes: Spoilery for the finale. And a few light hearted jokes made at Mike and Bryan's expense. *wink* Hehe...



Unhappy Endings


Zuko and Katara sat in their seats horrified and disgusted.

“I don’t believe it!” Katara said, glaring at the centre stage, only wishing that she was a firebender. Maybe she could have singed the building if she stared long and hard enough. “They spend the entire finale together, he works hard to gain her forgiveness, he gives his life for her, AND SHE ENDS UP WITH THE LAST SANDBENDER?”

“… What does a guy have to do to impress a girl these days?” Was all Zuko could mutter after seeing the last five minutes.

“Well I don’t care what the writers say!” Katara huffed, crossing her arms. “The romance in this play is epic proportions of failure! It’s so obvious that the Zhang tribe girl and the Gan Jin citizen understood and deeply cared for one another! Despite their history and their differences! How could you say it would have never worked out?” The Fire Lady bitterly remembered the playwright’s excuses for not pairing the said couple together.

‘She’s so cute when she gets mad over the small things.’
Zuko smiled adoringly at his newly wedded wife, taking her chin in his hand.
 
“Because they don’t know what it’s like to be in a relationship like ours.” He said, before kissing her sweetly on the lips.

For those brief moments of his lips on hers, Katara blissfully forgot about her annoyance.

Until she decided to get back at the playwright by having sex in his theatre.



AN: “… What does a guy have to do to impress a girl these days?” Hehehe! I got that quote from someone's Uncle! At capslock_zutara. Mums aren't the only ones who ship Zutara you know. *wink*

And before I get loads of "OH YOU SORE LOSER!" or "STOP! BRYKE IS GOD! THEY KNOW WHAT'S BEST!" shoved down my throat, I've got to say this first. In my opinion, most of the finale was well done, despite how Aang defeated the Fire Lord, the end game ships, Ty Lee joining the Kyoshi warriors, etc. I love everything else about the finale. I think some things could have been done much, MUCH better, but other than that, I'm don't feel bitter about it, at least not as much as I used to. Especially since it seemed like Zutara really won out in the end, if you catch my drift. *wink* 

So don't take the little jab at Bryke seriously. It's a joke! Loads of writers have been made fun of before for the mistakes they've made (e.g. JK Rowling and her epilogue of doom ring any bells?).

Teehee. *huge thumbs up*
And I agree with you about the finale. I loved it, even though the shipping at the end made me want to gag. But, other than that, EPICWIN! We're not bitter, because we have fanfiction and we have so much Zutara goodness to work with.


This was funny ^^
tough cookie: Happy|Iroh|When you smiledxlovelylightx on August 6th, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Exactly! Why be bitter when WE HAVE STORMBENDERS FOR CANON? *smiles*

And not to mention I have SO MUCH material to work with because of the finale. And Bryke made it so easy for us to write out Maiko and Kataang! Mai could easily become jealous of Katara because of what Zuko did for her, especially since he PRACTICALLY FORGOT ABOUT HER. And Aang's had a mighty jealous streak, he could totally see what Zuko did for Katara as something to show his love for her. Next thing you know, Zuko and Katara are SICK of their childish behaviour and break up with them!

I am a happy fanfic writer! :)

This was fun! Very much enjoyed...Nothing like a little ol' satire!

One teeny, tiny crit, though, it's spelled "playwright," not play write.

I'm glad you did!

And thanks for the critique, I was unsure of how that was spelt.

I think it would have too, if she hadn't said that she HATED being part of a matched set, so that's why it bothers me. Don't get me wrong, the Kyoshi Warriors are great, but Ty Lee would be kind of lost in the crowd, if you get what I mean.

If the writers are gonna make her have that kind of insecurity, the least they could do is REMEMBER it, that's all I'm saying. :)

Thank you!

I'm glad to know you didn't despise the finale. Even if we didn't get all we wanted, we did get some nice scenes. :D

I'm loving Zuko in this. XD And hearing Katara say "epic proportions of failure" is just win. <3
tough cookie: Embarrassed|Sakura|SAY SOMETHING!xlovelylightx on August 7th, 2008 01:46 pm (UTC)
... Uh, I haven't neccesarily WATCHED the finale yet, but there are some nice scenes I've heard about, which I really do like. :D And though I DESPISE the end game ships and Aang getting to have his cake and eat it too, there are just some stuff in there which is TOO GOOD to miss because of those annoying details. Which is why I want to find the perfect moment to watch it all! <3

I'm glad you loved it! <3

So. True. I would be even funnier if Katara were having that conversation with Aang, and being like, 'but, but,' and she's talking about how wrong the romance was.
tough cookie: Accomplished|Aang|SHINY FOREHEADxlovelylightx on August 7th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
IT WOULD! It really would be hilarious! Especially since Aang has this typical 12 year old idea of romance.

... I may write a fanfic like this now. It would be a perfect sequel!

Oh Katara. You get back at people in the best ways.

You understand that revenge is sometimes a dish served steaming hot.

SO MUCH LAPSLOCK!!!!! *EL GASP*

THIS REMINDS ME OF MY ONESHOT FIC WHEN I ALSO MADE KATARA A ZUTARA FANGIRL. TWAS MOST FUN TO WRITE.

LOVED THIS FIC - PARTICULARLY ZUKO'S LINE - WHAT DOES A GUY HAVE TO DO TO IMPRESS A GIRL THESE DAYS? POOR ZUZU. AT LEAST HE GOT THE GIRL.

AND GOT HER IN THE THEATRE TOO, HEHE
Angelangel90_1 on August 7th, 2008 08:40 am (UTC)

Yay! Katara and Zuko know what's up, don't they? And yes, grown up Avatar fans seem to prefer Zutara which does not surprise me at all.

Well done!
tough cookie: Zutara|Never thought I'dxlovelylightx on August 7th, 2008 01:57 pm (UTC)
Us adults (or teenagers) like our drama, complications, compromise, because we know what real relationships are like! And it's interesting to see them being played out in fiction, since we've been exposed to the fairy tale version of romance stories for long enough. So yeah, it's not surprising.

Thanks!
