Title: Love in a Cold Climate
Pairing: Multiple het Kanna pairings.
Characters: Kanna, Pakku, Iroh, Jeong Jeong, Piandao, Bumi, Sokka, Katara, Bato, Hakoda, some OCs, some animals.
Length: ~16,000 words
Rating: light R
Credits: Beta kindly done by [personal profile] attackfish; the remaining mistakes are mine. A snippet of poetry about plums is loosely adapted from Wang Wei (701-761). The title is stolen from Nancy Mitford, but since she stole it from Orwell, I like think of it more as redistributing the wealth that was appropriated by the upper classes.
Author's Notes: I couldn't shake the feeling that Pakku had an awfully easy redemption. And that Kanna, who made an amazingly brave trip all the way to the other side of the world to avoid marrying him, got quickly turned into the rubber stamp of approval on his emotional growth, without a word about how incredible she and her story were. Man, women get erased awfully fast from stories after doing amazing, high-cost things, while the guys get their dream rewards handed to them in return for not being a total sexist asshat for two episodes. The show got that one kinda wrong. So here's a correction; this is more how that should have gone down.

I did a reccing project for [community profile] ladiesbigbang that might be relevant to some of y'all's interests; it ended up clocking in at 160 fic recs in 74 fandoms, featuring 207 awesome women.

The whole shebang can be found at [community profile] notwellbehaved, but I'd recommend starting at the tags page. I tagged each rec with fandom, pairing/threesome/whatever, completed or wip, and content warnings (from "abuse" to "zombies").

There's gen, het, femslash, and poly (threesomes and vees), happy endings and character studies and apocalypses, original characters and minor characters and iconic badasses. A little bit of everything I love, basically.
