Bleu - absolutely gripping and stunning narratives of the nightmares. You had me absolutely convinced this was a real scene, not a nightmare.  *relived*

Even better was the supportive reactions of Korra and Mako, and his strong support of her while at the SWT.

Great job, bleu. Excellent writing! XD

Looking forward to more.

Despite what he'll have you believe, he's a fantastic writer, so don't listen to him. Most of the ideas we've wprked on have come from him and he's great at writing, even if he says otherwise. ;)

The fourth one-shot is up! And it is presented to you by none other than the amazingly talented Cassidy Alice! We've seen how Mako reacts to Korra going into the Avatar State... How does he feel about her going into the Spirit World?

Simply excellent Cassie.  I was there with Mako and Katara. I loved how the old Master helped educate Mako in the ways of the Avatar as only she knew them as a spouse of the previous Avatar, knowing full well Mako would need to know how to cope and understand, and be patient.

And that he was, which surprised Korra in a very good way with his caring.

Great effort!

The fifth one-shot is up! This time written by yours truly! Not exactly the best of what you'll see in this collection, but I'm biased. LOL. Hope you enjoy my take on how Mako and Korra take the next step in their relationship. :D

Divs - another GREAT story from you, my friend. I love their dynamic, which is entirely believable from the last few episodes of the show.  I agree they would tease each other a lot, but know when to stop. 

Mako's concern about being worried about being a couple despite her being the Avatar, and not really yet knowing what that means is touching.  He's NOT the Avatar expert that Katara was, and has much to learn, as he cares mostly about the Korra within the Avatar. 

I think you created a very realistic scenario of Mako and Korra wanting to be independent, but TOGETHER, in an apartment together.  Close enough to those they love (Bolin and Tenzin and the Air Family) but separate because they like doing things on their own.  It just so happens that they like being independent as they have all their lives, but now united.  Nice!

Tenzin's reaction is great - the typical conservative father type reaction, which I think mirrors how Aang would react (and probably did with any shenanigans between him and Lin), but her real parents are cooler about accepting the pair being together for the love that there is between them.

And a nice taste of the flames of passion which they share...

The SIXTH one-shot is up! It's been written by the AMAZINGLY talented BleuMakorra!!! To keep to the timeline, it's been placed in fifth position, though. Just a note. Enjoy Bleu's FANTASTIC piece on how Korra would comfort Mako. <3

Can anyone here not see why they're the better writers of the group? Really? By the looking at the oneshots you can't tell the good from the mediocre? Ah well, well done Bleu
