Fandom: Avatar: Legend of Korra
Summary: Republic City to Ba Sing Se, with a number of lessons learnt in the process. Korra and Asami take a road trip.
This fic is the first Avatar fic of any kind I ever read, even before I saw all of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and that's because the wonderful tofsla wrote it and I'm a big fan of her writing. There is something quiet and sweet about the tone of this fic, Korra and Asami growing steadily closer and coming to terms with their attraction for one another while on a road trip. It's relaxing and the pace is just perfect for this kind of story; one never wants it to end. I highly recommend!
Snippet from the fic:
Morning, bright and clear but not warm, sees them on the road.
Republic City falls away behind them as the car climbs, winding its way up and down through the eastern mountain pass. Beside her, Korra can't decide whether to stare up into the mountains or back down at the city as it slides in and out of view behind the first of the peaks.
A van follows them at a discreet distance, with their escort and Naga, who actually broke three doors trying to get to the cars the day before and completely freaked Korra out. Asami wonders how many of the Order are actually comfortable behind the wheel, and resists the urge to test their limits. It wouldn't be very kind to Naga, and it definitely wouldn't be a very appropriate way to start their journey.
But she entertains the idea of racing over the pass for a while anyway, just as a thought. Korra would enjoy it, anyway.
