“Rank and Vile”
Iroh hates Bolin. He is everything the young fire prince has been taught to disdain: rumpled clothing and loud tactlessness, uncultured tastes in food and entertainment, and of course- that filthy way the sweat rolled down his back. So, when he is proctoring Bolin’s entrance exam into the United Forces, Iroh decides to have a chat with the young earthbender about his behavior.
i tRIED TO CLICK REBLOG AND I ACCIDENTALLY UNFOLLOWED YOU SORRY
but anyway this -
See, my problem with smut is that I just - I don’t find sex interesting, not generally, I’ve read one too many descriptions where it’s basically the same and also I’m vaguely ace - demisexual? Hemidemisemisexual! By which I mean I’m way more attracted to who people are than the idea of their genitals. Who even cares about genitals.
But this …! The powerplay, the whole dynamic, the, the taunting and the fierce control and then lack thereof and - Bolin being a bastard, have I ever mentioned how much I love that?? and just. Ahhh. Powerplaaaay. This is everythiing I was always kinda waiting for in a fic for this pairing without even knowing it, and now at last here it is.
thankyouguys this is so incredibly flamingly hot

Ohgosh this is darling. <3 I love stories where owners of food joints are sweet on one of their customers who is also sweet on them but everything’s awkward and adorable and ahhhhh
I just wanted to tell you that the “Pabu as a matchmaker” prompt was filled, and can be found here:
Pabu keeps sneaking on board Iroh’s ship, and causing chaos. (There was this incident, you see, on Red Sands. It was very traumatic. Some of the crew needed therapy.) Iroh returns him. He doesn’t really mind.
