Author has written 22 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Dead Poets Society.

Status as of 3/05/11: As Iris starts to come to a close (not quite yet, but we're getting there), it's time to start thinking ahead. A sequel may be in the works, and I've got another AU fic in mind. :)

"Furthermore, I think Mai's and Zuko's relationship appeals to this fantasy from both sides. Mai is an eternally calm, cool, emotionless young woman who finds everything and everyone "boring" and "unbearably bleak." Nothing evokes emotion, concern, or passion in her... except Zuko: "I know one thing I care about... I care about you." Isn't that the same as saying "Zuko knows she loves him because she's completely different around him. He's an exception to her very nature"? I don't pretend to know anything about guys, but I know that's why girls love the quiet, stoic type. No one has the power to arouse excitement or passion in Mai except her chosen one; she gives herself and her heart to only one person whom she loves enough to risk her life for. You can instantly see he's special to her. It feels good when someone treats you so special.

Zuko, of course, is overflowing with the classic "bad boy" appeal, full of pain and angst but rebuffing all attempts from young ladies to reach out to him and comfort him... except Mai. He pushes Song away, he runs from Jin, he betrays Katara, but he lets Mai touch him and kiss him and I'll stop there. That's why girls fantasize about guys like him -- we want to be the privileged one someone completely averse to the idea of companionship and comfort can't resist.

Avatar really tapped into something fundamental with this couple -- the gender-blind fantasy of being all in all to someone who loves you like they love no other.jill_rg over at the 'maizuko' thread at livejournal. Loved it :)

"Cheshire Puss," Alice began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. "Come, it's pleased so far," thought Alice, and she went on. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where-" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"--so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."--
Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland

The world needs more Maiko, so I answered the call. And there is no better way to celebrate Maiko than with Zuko pinned to walls and the floor and Mai taking advantage of the situation. Yes, that means lemon.
