prompt #49 - “Who hurt you?”
TW; implicated su*cide attempt, mentions of self harm
“Chief, we have a 10-72 at 45th and Kyoshi Avenue, I repeat, a 10-72 at 45th and Kyoshi Avenue. Over,” Mako’s voice sounded slightly panicked through the crunchy radio static.
“I’m on my way. 952?” Lin responded calmly, turning on her siren. She turned a sharp corner, heading towards the edge of town.
“10-45B, 10-46, no other injuries. And Chief…” Mako trailed off for a moment, and Lin couldn’t help but feel suddenly sick with worry.
Lin slammed her car door, running to the small gathering of first responders on the street corner. She shoved past Mako and another officer, dropping to her knees beside Jinora.
“What the hell happened?!” She all but yelled, pulling Jinora’s head into her lap.
“Aunt Lin,” Jinora said quietly, a small smile forming. Her eyes were shut, her face slightly pale.
“Shh, rest, I’ll keep you safe,” Lin said to her niece, stroking her hair.
She looked up at the surrounding first responders, her anger starting to build.
“Where in Raava is the damn ambulance?” She barked. She hadn’t directed her anger at any specific officer, least of all Mako, but it was he who jumped into action immediately.
He walked a few steps away, radioing back and forth for a minute with the ambulance, before coming to report back.
“It’s at 42nd and Kyoshi, Chief. Should be here in just a moment,” He said professionally.
Lin gave him a nod and focused on Jinora again. Lin knew Jinora kept to herself, much the same way she did. Her siblings relied on her heavily for emotional support, and Lin had no doubt she had many friends, but this shocked her. Why would someone want to hurt such a beautiful spirit, someone so kind who only thought of others?
The ambulance arrived and Lin forced herself to pay attention to what was happening now. She could ask questions later, for now she had to be present. For Jinora.
Lin had stayed by Jinora’s side the entire drive to the hospital, and hadn’t left her bedside once they’d arrived. She was now on the edge of an uncomfortable, old, wooden chair, resting her arms and head on the side of Jinora’s bed. She had her niece’s hand clutched tightly in her own.
Several healers had been in and out, and Jinora was no longer physically hurt. She was still weak, and had slept for several hours now, but she was fine.
Lin whipped her head up when she heard movement above her. Jinora had finally woken up, and was propped in a sitting position looking down at Lin.
“Jinora,” Lin felt tears prick her eyes as she smiled at her niece.
“Aunt Lin, I…” Jinora choked on her words.
“Shh, it’s alright. I’m here, I’m not leaving anytime soon,” Lin squeezed her niece’s hand.
Jinora looked at her hand in Lin’s. Emotion suddenly overcame the young girl, sobs escaping her throat. Her shoulders shook with the force of her crying and her hand tightened around Lin’s as much as her weak body let it.
“That’s it, let it all out. You’re alright now. You’re safe,” Lin reassured her.
Seeing Jinora so afraid, so hurt, Lin felt her anger boil. She was furious at whoever had done this to her niece. She wanted them to feel the same pain Jinora was in, the same fear.
“Jinora, who hurt you?” Lin’s voice was gentle, but there was an edge behind it that hadn’t been there moments before.
Jinora’s sobs only got louder. Lin decided it was best to let her get her emotions out before questioning her. That was why she hadn’t told Tenzin, or anyone else for that matter, that she was in the hospital.
When Jinora had finally quieted, Lin reached out to wipe her niece’s face.
“Are you ready to talk?” She asked gently. Jinora nodded, so she asked her the same question she had previously.
“Who hurt you?” Her voice was more controlled this time, the anger hidden.
“It- It wasn’t- ” Jinora sagged, letting out a shaky breath before continuing.
“It wasn’t someone else. It was me. I did this,” She gazed back at Lin with a pleading look in her eyes.
Lin was taken aback. She herself had struggled with impulses to hurt herself, but never had it brought her this close to death. She thought for a moment, choosing her next words carefully. After opening and closing her mouth several times with no success, she figured Jinora would feel most comforted to know she wasn’t alone.
Lin bent off her armour, sending it to the corner of the room. She reached down and tugged her pant leg up, revealing the countless scars running down her leg. Jinora stared at them, taking in what Lin was sharing with her.
“Thank you,” Jinora whispered, tears coming back to her eyes. “I needed- I- thank you.”
Lin moved herself to sitting on the bed next to Jinora, taking her niece in her arms. She held the young girl tightly for a long time. The sky started to darken, and Lin shifted away from Jinora.
“I know it’s hard, but I think we need to talk to your parents about this. I can come with you if you’d like, for support…” Lin didn’t want to make her niece talk to her parents, but she was worried. She’d never spoken to anyone other than Kya about her own habits, and had found it impossible to stop herself before having that support system in place.
To her surprise, Jinora nodded.
“I do need to talk to them, I was just… scared. But I think I can now,” She grabbed Lin’s hand again.
“It would help a lot if you were there though,” Jinora smiled somewhat sadly at her aunt.
“Then I’ll stay as long as you need me to,” Lin smiled back.
“Thank you,” Jinora breathed.
“It’s me who should be thanking you, kid. Sharing stuff like that is terrifying. You’re one of the bravest people I know, Jinora… I’m so proud of you,” Jinora pulled Lin to her, wrapping her in a tight hug.
A nurse came in, giving Jinora a final check over before giving her the all clear to go home. Lin left with her, grateful Mako had driven her car to the hospital from where she’d left it. She drove them to the dock, reassuring Jinora the entire ferry ride to Air Temple Island.

Kya after Tenzin broke up with Lin: Darling, I’ll be there for you, with open arms, and open legs, and open mouth
Hahaha how crazy would it be for someone to write a short Kyalin fic where Kya is actually the one who’s scared to get emotionally attached because throughout her years of traveling, everytime she’s gotten attached to someone, they’d leave or she’d go to another place hahahaha how crazy…
Would that be….
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)….
^^Someone tell me how to fix this and make it NOT so tiny please?
Well? What are you waiting for?? GO MAKE SOME MEMES.
These were put up for your use, not mine!
I have a head canon for all you kyalin simps:
Lin always had feelings for Kya. Even when she was still with Tenzin. She never acted upon those feelings at that time in her life, because she didn’t know what they meant, but when she started to realize how much kya meant to her it was already to late, and Kya had left to travel the world.
She broke up with Tenzin and over the years she starts to realize that she is in fact a lesbian. Scared over the idea of having to tell the few people of her family left in republic city she pushes those feelings down and never acts upon them. She closes herself off from any romantic interaction, and builds up her walls.
Around the time Korra comes to the city, Kya returns with her. Lin at first doesn’t want anything to do with this. She thinks that de feelings she had for the woman were long gone, and that it was just a stupid little crush.
Until Kya seeks her out. One look into the womans eyes and Lin is falling again… deep. Lin tries to shut her out, but Kya doesn’t give up easy and she manages to break down Lins walls.
Kya at that point also realizes what Lin means to her and they fall in love with eachother. Establishing a for now secret relationship.
3 years pass till after the events with Kuvira and their relationship remains a secret. Lin is still afraid to come out, because she doesn’t want to lose al the new (and old) people that made their way into her heart like her sister and the krew. But Kya is growing a little tired of it. She loves Lin and she wants the world to know how much.
Every month the whole family gathers for a family dinner, Lin getting paranoid everytime about coming together says the should arrive at different times, but kya’s had enough of it. She says they can just say the met at the ferry or something.
Everything at the dinner is going fine, the only thing that is different this time in contrary to the other meals is that Toph also desided she would attend this one. She felt Kya and Lin arrive together and noticed little subtle things in the way of how the interacted with eachother. Things that the others without seismic sense aren’t able to see.
At one point in the middle of the meal, during one of the glances Lin and kya shared with eachother. Toph just blandly pronounces “Hey Lin… Why don’t you just take Kya to her room and undress her there. That would be way easier than to undress her here at the table with your eyes.”
Lin is baffled and her head turnes into something that looks like a raspberry, before she stormes out of the room. Kya giving an annoyed glare at Toph (not like she can see it) storms after her.
Lin in the kitchen is starting to hyperventilate and kya needs to calm her down before she gets a panic attack. They talk for a while, and kya reassures Lin that no one at that table will judge her for being herself.
Lin grounds herself, not fully believing what kya just said to her yet, but doing this for her and they step back into the room.
Lin is a nervous wreck and no one at the table knows her like that, but she steadies herself. They tell everyone everything. Lin about her feelings for women, and them both about their relationship.
Everyone is so supportive of them (even Tenzin after he had a little while to let the information sink in), and they all reassure lin that s h.c e had nothing to fear from the beginning.
Lin is so happy and so releaved that she cries. Like not just sheds a few tears, but actually cries. This is the first time since her childhood that she has cried in frond of anyone except for Kya and it embarrasses her a little bit, but she doesn’t care anymore. She has a loving family. and anyone that even dares to lay a hand on that family better watch out, because she will end that person’s live with her own hands.
This turned out longer than I expected, but I hope it was at least a bit readable. English isn’t my first language so please don’t judge, but I hope you liked it.
