This is just a short little three-shot. =) I just love The Ember Island Players episode so much, it's my favorite, I decided to make a story about the little Zutara moments. So, please enjoy! The next chapter will be about the whole Crossroads of Destiny scene. =)

Disclaimer: I have been wishing for many years now, but I still do not own Avatar The Last Airbender…or Zuko. *sniffle*


Katara rolled her eyes as she watched Actress-Katara sob over nothing. They really over exaggerated everyone's personalities. Sokka did not go on and on about how hungry he was every 5 minutes. Aang was definitely NOT a woman. And Katara wasn't a big cry baby who sobbed about hope all the time and never did anything daring.

I'm hopeful, and get emotional sometimes, but it's not a constant thing! I can be fun and daring! I went penguin sledding, I purposely got captured by the Fire Nation to free some earthbenders, and it was my idea that got us into The Earth King's party!

Katara scoffed out loud. Zuko, who was sitting next to her, looked at her curiously, "What?"

"People are jerks." Katara muttered angrily.

Zuko smiled at her a little and forced his attention back to the horrific play.

In just a few minutes, the play went from bad to worse.

"You sicken me!" Actor-Zuko said a little dramatically as Actor-Iroh stuffed his face with fake cake.

Zuko crossed his arms. "They make me look totally stiff and humorless!" He complained.

Katara smirked and folded her arms across her chest and said teasingly, "Actually, I think that actor's pretty spot-on."

Zuko turned to her and glared. "How could you say that?"

As if on cue, Actor-Iroh said, "Let's forget about the Avatar and get massages!"

Actor-Zuko was outraged and said, "How could you say that!"

Katara's grin grew even wider at the embarrassed look on Zuko's face. "Oh, be quiet…"

She giggled at how cute he looked when he was embarrassed.

Zuko's P.O.V.

I hate this more than I hate Azula. Although it's actually a little interesting to see the events that happened to Aang, Katara, and Sokka before I joined them, this play is beyond ridiculous. We're NOTHING like this! Even I can admit that. Whereas Toph just sits and laughs at the fact that her friends are being publicly humiliated.

Not only was it annoying and mean, but it also got awkward at some parts. When woman-Aang got rescued by the Blue Spirit, which by the way is ME, he/she said "My hero!"

Um, yeah…AWKWARD.

The minutes droned by until a guy with wildly large brown hair and a flower in his mouth came on stage. That must be Jet. To be honest, I didn't even know that they knew him. It was so odd to see him again, even if it wasn't actually him. Last time I saw him was in Ba Sing Se and he tried to kill me. Now here he is, being all romantic towards Katara…wait, what?

I leaned forward in my seat a little and watched the fake Jet say, "Jet will wipe out this nasty town for you!", and wrapped his arms around the fake Katara.

I couldn't help but scowl. This is all fake. It's just a play, right? I'm sure none of that really happened. I mean, why would Katara like that jerk? I glanced at her and saw that she was blushing and looking anywhere but the stage.

"Oh Jet, you're so bad."

A small growling noise got caught in my throat. Toph burst into a fit of laughter. I, however, found nothing amusing about this situation. As much as I wanted it to be fake, the look on Katara's face said quite plainly I was wrong.


Okay, this is kind of choppy and bad and short, but I PROMISE the next two chapters are going to be a lot better! I hope you keep reading? Well, if you don't that's okay, I guess. But if you DO keep reading and like it, do you wanna review?
