Not just as a martial art, but as an extension of my senses.

✧ Legend of Korra | Book 1: main characters
Pairings: Eventual Borra (big surprise, eh?), Lin Beifong & Bolin (Mother/Son)
Summary: Lin Beifong did not expect to find, of all things, a grubby little child hiding in the Triad base. Nor did she expect him to be a rather competent earthbender, more willing to follow orders than her own police force, and with a wailing screech that rivaled a wolf-bat’s for sheer volume. Yet, looking back, she could admit that she should have expected the way he would eventually take over her life.
Lin Beifong regretted her decision no less than five minutes after she stepped into the police headquarters.
Perhaps not all rules had to be adhered too. Nothing would go that terribly wrong if she just…left the boy somewhere, would it? Lose him in a busy street, or in the park, or maybe she could even toss him into a bush somewhere; she’d heard that some hobos had been making due with the foliage.
He’d survived this long, so truly, how hard would the rest of his entire life really be in the grand scheme of things? She should at least be allowed to order a gag for his incessant cries—really, who exactly were the boy’s parents? Rabid wolf-bats?
All this, and much, much darker ran through Chief Lin Beifong’s head as she tried to quiet his screaming.
“Shush, oh, shush already!” she snapped at the red faced child, who appeared to be too busy bawling his eyes out to respond. That or even he couldn’t hear her through his yowls.
Lin’s eyes started shining with a wild, mad desperation. “What do you want? Money? Power? Toys? I can give it all to you, if you would only cease your infernal crying.”
His mouth stretched into another wail. She winced in preparation.
“I-I wah-want Mah-Mah-Mako!”
