Piandao often questioned Jeong Jeong's obsession with candles; for someone who hated being a fire bender, the hermit seemed to love being surrounded by flickering flames.
2. Dress up-
"I am not wearing that to bed, Piandao."
The thrill of adventuring never wore off, especially not when one was allowed to fight side-by-side with a close friend.
4. Two's company-
In the end, all either of them wanted was someone to hold at night and tell them everything was going to be alright.
5. Take my chances-
Maybe it wasn't a good idea to kiss a ranting fire bender, but Piandao thought he would risk it.
6. Secret admirer-
Jeong Jeong could have sworn someone was constantly watching him; Pakku suggested he was simply paranoid.
At first, Piandao was jealous of the fact that Jeong Jeong was a fire bending master, something his parents had wanted him to be.
Piandao would have slew dragons to be with Jeong Jeong; on some days, however, it seemed as if Jeong Jeong himself played the part of the dragon.
9. The little things-
There were few things better than sitting and having tea with the sword master.
The conversation became awkward when Jeong Jeong casually commented on how cuddly Piandao was; it became more so when the rest of the Order burst out into laughter as he tried to explain how he knew it.
Even though he was still bitter over what had happened in the past, Jeong Jeong was glad to see that Piandao was safe after all these years.
12. Goofing off-
"Now that Master Jeong Jeong and Master Piandao have finally decided to join us, we can begin discussing business."
It was surreal to see Jeong Jeong gliding gracefully through the sky like a noble hawkowl that had mastered use of it's wings.
They had a silent, mutual trust that, no matter what, they would watch out for each other.
Grand Lotus Iroh always said that destiny was a funny thing; Piandao found it hard to argue with that statement.
After the war was over, Piandao made it his personal mission to convince Jeong Jeong to move into his castle.
(Possible Spoiler for an unwritten chapter of Tempered Steel) Nothing hurt him more than when Piandao told him he was returning to the Fire Nation.
Getting over their trust issues proved to be more difficult than anticipated.
Spring was a time for fresh starts and new beginnings; Piandao thought he'd follow nature's cue.
Piandao spent hours everyday capturing the beauty of nature on paper; it was one of his favorite hobbies.
21. Love letter-
After finding a letter that effectively scarred him for life, Sokka swore to never snoop around Piandao's room again.
Their affair proved to be like a flower: once it blossomed, it was a beautiful thing to behold but it didn't take long for it to begin to wilt and die.
Jeong Jeong would declare his desire to be a water bender to anyone who tried to hold a conversation with him, whether they wanted to hear the rant or not.
24. Catch me-
"Don't be so afraid of falling in love; I promise I'll be here to catch you."
(Prequel to #12) The Grand Lotus had scheduled a meeting for that morning, but Piandao just wanted to keep laying there with Jeong Jeong nestled in his arms; they would only be a few minutes late…
He had to admit that he was surprised by the faint muttering of, "Just be glad I love you…"
"For the last time: sex is not destruction- or a burden!"
(Related to #1) Even though he didn't understand the obsession, Piandao was sure to stock up on candles every time he went into town.
Piandao taught Sokka the way of the sword; Sokka, in return, taught Piandao proper flirtation techniques.
Many people couldn't understand why they chose to play Pai Sho; then again, they didn't realize the deeper meaning in each of the moves.
(Related to #24) Though it wasn't likely he'd admit to it, but letting someone catch him wasn't so bad.
"You have three seconds to move your hand before I set it on fire."
Trying to catch Jeong Jeong was like a game of catfox-and-mouse shrew; it was only through sheer determination that Piandao was able to track him.
Jeong Jeong turned his head and scoffed as Piandao took his hand, but the sword master caught a glimpse of the slight smile that formed afterwards.
The way Piandao moved so fluidly in battle was mesmerizing; Jeong Jeong hated that he couldn't look away.
The tale of his desertion was a mess of rumors and lies delivered as truth and that was what made him a legend.
37. Here and now-
Some lived in the past, others for the future; Piandao merely wanted to make each moment matter as they occurred.
Jeong Jeong never told anyone the reason he disliked sunsets; to him, it looked like someone had set the sky on fire.
39. Don't cry-
He had seen so many people die, comrades and enemies alike, but this funeral was more than he could handle; he only hoped he could keep the tears at bay until he was alone at home.
Members of the Order were required to show a level of selflessness, but, in reality, all of them had one thing they selfishly kept to themselves.
41. Change of heart-
(Follow-up to #2) "Fine, I'll wear it… but you had better make it worth my time!"
Their bickering ended when Pakku commented on how much they sounded like a married couple.
It was a sign of trust when Piandao let someone hold his favorite sword; it was a true honor if he let anyone carry it.
(Follow up to #39) He managed to make it home- if he could even dare call it that now- before he broke down; he silently prayed he wasn't being watched from the Spirit World.
Quiet exchanges around a camp fire proved to be a common place between the two; they would often sacrifice sleep for careless whispers in the dark.
Jeong Jeong understood the importance of patience; he had seen the destruction caused by those who refused to wait.
47. I'll be there-
One sentence, less than ten words, was all Piandao needed to go running to the Earth Kingdom.
48. Tomorrow's another day-
He let out a sigh as he trudged to the guestroom, once again being kicked out of his bedroom; oh well, there was always tomorrow…
49. The one-
He denied it fervently, but there wasn't anyone else for him.
50. Yin Yang-
They sat back-to-back; the black topknot contrasted greatly against the ash white hair.
