Wither: AU of Strings, in which Korra never quite “adjusts” to having a romantic relationship with Tarrlok, the bloodbender who’s holding her captive.
The Way You Look Tonight: Short, fluffy behind-the-scenes-of-Strings piece. Korra and Tarrlok have drastically different tastes in music, and dance together for the second time ever.
The Strings-inspired music masterpost can be found here.
Chiaroscuro: Written to fill a prompt on ficbending, involving Amon’s reactions to Korra and Tarrlok’s politically-arranged marriage. The prompt: “So there are lots of prompts and fiches on Korra marrying Tarrlok for political reasons, but I haven’t seen any that show Noatak’s feelings on his brother’s bride. Not just how this arrangement will affect the Equalist movement, but also on a more personal level. Then Noatak went to check on his little brother’s married life and noticed that Tarrlok genuinely loved his wife, and this made Noatak feel bad about his plans involving the Avatar - who is now his sister-in-law. Bonus if Korra was pregnant with Tarrlok’s child and when news gets to Amon, he was secretly happy of the fact that he was an uncle now.”
Happy Endings: (for lack of a better title) A short oneshot exploring Tarrlok’s fate in the aftermath of “Endgame.”
Imprisoned: Episode 8 AU. After Amon and a handful of Equalists inadvertently witness Korra’s kidnapping, Amon sees a golden opportunity to take down Korra and Tarrlok, two of the greatest threats to his movement, with one strike. Held captive by the Equalists, and locked up together, the two of them are forced to put aside their enmity and coexist. Part One, Part Two.
Hair: Short sidestory/outtake from Imprisoned. Tarrlok has a problem, and Korra has the solution.
Taken: Back in the South Pole, Tonraq finds out that his daughter has been kidnapped, and he’ll stop at nothing to return her to safety. Liam Neeson’s got nothing on him. Episode 9 AU.
