Title: A Hold On Me
Author: ilcocoabean
Fandom: Legend of Korra
Character(s)/Pairing: Korra, Asami Sato, Kuvira, Tenzin, Mako, Bolin, Pema, Lin Beifong, Suyin Beifong, Opal Beifong, Korra/Asami
Genre(s): AU-canon divergence
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~13,840
Summary: After her defeat at Zaofu, people begin to forget Korra. At first it's only people she doesn't care for but when those closer to her stop remembering her name, things start to get complicated. Can Korra use the mass amnesia as an advantage against Kuvira or is she risking being forgotten forever?

As this work is an interpretation of the original material and not for-profit, it constitutes fair use.
Warnings: Violence and implied violence.
Note: Takes place after episode 45: The Battle of Zaofu. Title inspired by White Lies's “Death.” Written for heroinebigbang. Without that deadline this fic would never have been written. Special thanks to weird_situation for listening to me babble about this fic and to [personal profile] lilacsigil for the wonderful beta skills. Without their help, this fic would have been a hot mess.

The idea for this was born in a dream a few days before the finale. I was worried and out of the stress came a few scenes in which Korra was supposed to travel the world and meet people or descendants of the people Aang met. That had to be cut because of timeline issues but it probably wouldn't have made much sense anyway.

Art by ideare which can be found here.

When Korra finally came to, it had been a couple days since her failed battle with KuviraCollapse )

The Holy and The Broken



The house had only been around for about ten years, a blip on a timeline of the area. The church it sat behind was constructed over a hundred and fifty years ago. It was a refuge for the German immigrants who came to the U.S in the mid-1800s. The house was originally purchased for the priests until the monastery could be rebuilt.

The two large bedrooms on the second floor were used as office space while the three larger rooms on the first floor were for first year communion classes and a place for other preachers to give sermons. The basement was locked.

They said it was another house of God. I helped burn this house.

dimachaerus—a class of gladiator who used two swords, no shield, and had minimal armor
provocator—a class of gladiators protected by a breastplate, a rectangular shield and sword
lanista—owner/trainer of a troop of gladiators but socially the lanista was “vendor of human flesh”
Ray is a retiarius—(“net fighter”) a class of gladiators who wore little to no armor, carried a trident, dagger, and a net.
idus—thought to have been the day of the full moon
ludus—school for gladiator
