Her toes barely touched the water.
Toph was an earthly creature, Sokka decided. She was so unlike... unlike any other girl he’d wanted to protect, with that earthiness. She was solid and real, grounded in her ways. Stubborn? Perhaps. She wasn’t ethereal, like the moon, or as carefree as Suki.
But she was certainly as beautiful as either of them. Her features were unlike the stone and earth she knew so well it seemed to flow through her blood. Her skin was pale and suggested a delicate nature. Her eyes were vague at first glance but were truly as faceted as any hard earth gem, and the dark hair she wore in the seemingly feminine style reeked of a well bred society girl.
But even now she was leaning so roughly on her elbows so that the rock threatened to scrape her skin, her bangs hung messily in her grinning eyes, and she gave a loud burp before announcing that Aang was perhaps being a little foolhardy, swimming around with his arrows exposed.
Earlier she’d asked him about erosion.

“Is it true that wind and rain can break stone down?”
“It’s been scientifically proven. Minerals in rock can be broken down by water because of the chemical composition of water being so unique.”
“So you think that if Sugar Queen and Twinkle Toes teamed up they could take me down?” she’d been smiling that secretive smile of hers, edge of laughter in her voice. It reminded him almost painfully of Suki.
“The Undefeated Blind Bandit?” he mock scoffed. “No way.”
She’d punched him affectionately in the shoulder.

She was so unlike any other girl he’d wanted to protect, and the thing was – she was stone and earth and those things could erode into lakes and oceans and never be strong again – she didn’t need to be protected.
