Mako: my life is a mess
Ursa: Mako relax, go get a beer
Mako: i don’t want a beer
Ursa: who said it was for you?
Ursa: *walking around disappointed after visiting an aquarium*
Lin: Ursa, what did you think a tiger shark was?
Mako: so that’s my plan
Ursa: are you alright with constructive criticism? I don’t want to sound mean
Mako: no, go ahead, i want to hear it
Ursa: it fucking sucks
Mako: that’s not constructive criticism
Ursa: spirits, give me patience
Mako: i think you mean "give me strength"
Ursa: if the spirits gave me strength, you'd be dead
Mako: bad things keep happening to me, like i have bad luck or something
Ursa: Mako, you don't have bad luck. the reason bad things happen to you is because you're a dumbass
okay but 4yo!mizuki dragging her play teapot and cups to izumi and zuko talking about official things over tea. and insisting that she likes to talk about these things. she then imitates the way bumi acts when he's thinking while her mom and grandpa stiffle laughter and talk about things in a less complicated way
Mako: okay, help me please!
Ursa: got two words for you
Mako: i bet they won't be helpful
Ursa: your problem
Mako: i was right
Izumi: where are you going?
Iroh and Ursa: to get ice cream or commit a felony, we'll decide on the way there
Izumi, driving Iroh and Ursa: so how was your day?
Ursa: we almost got surprise adopted!
Iroh: we almost got kidnapped
Izumi: oh, okay
Izumi: *slams on the breaks* WAIT WHAT?!
Ursa:*screams louder to assert dominance*
Izumi: sh–should we... do something?
Lin, observing: no, i want to see who wins this
in a modern AU: all of them have cool ass jobs cuz i say so lol
Izumi has a history PhD and she's a historian, cuz she's super cool. she did a couple of years of modeling in her youth too
Lin gives me biochemical or nuclear physicist vibes. i like biochemical better tbh
Ursa is a vet, hands down but she also studied art history
Iroh is an aerospace engineer and a pilot
