A/N: Korra loves getting her picture taken with the people she loves. Mako wants to find out why.

It didn't escape Mako's notice that his wife liked having pictures taken with her friends and family. Not that he had a
problem with it, but he'd figured that with all the times her face had been splashed over the front page of newspapers,
she'd be tired of looking at pictures of herself.

"Most of them are family pctures, Mako!" Korra retorted when he'd asked her about it. "And believe me, there's a
difference when you look at your picture in the tabloids and looking at pictures you willingly stood for."

Mako couldn't disagree with that, so he didn't push the matter any further.

"Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I'll be leaving for Ba Sing Se tomorrow evening," Korra said.

"Did something happen?" he asked her.

"Well, not exactly," Korra sighed. "The Earth Federation Council is having trouble with electing a leader. I really don't
know what I can do to help, but anything's better than Raiko trying to get one of his hand picked minions into the

Mako was silent at first, but his face fell when he realized something. "But... our anniversary!"

"I know," Korra groused. "I'm so sorry! I know we had plans and..."

"Well, I guess we'll make do with a call that day, then," Mako conceded.

"You could come with me," Korra offered.

Mako sighed as he rested his forehead against hers. "I wish I could, really. But I need to stay here. Lin's got me on a
very important case, and..."

"I know, I know," Korra said as she hugged him. "I promise I'll make it up to you when I get back."

"Only after you get back?" Mako asked slyly.

Korra grinned at his suggestion. "Try a little harder and it might just work right now."

Mako knew his wife would be the death of him in the best way possible.


The morning of their anniversary had been pretty routine. She and Mako had arranged to talk to each other in the evening
once they'd settled in for the night. And Mako had been so restless to speak to her again that everyone caught him
staring at the clock and watched him as he ran out of his office as soon as his shift ended. On an impulse, he decided to
check their mailbox and found that it contained a heavy package. He wondered what it could be when he spotted a note.

"Mako, I'm so sorry I couldn't be there to give this to you myself... Happy Anniversary! Don't open it until after we've
talked! Love, Korra."

He couldn't help but smile at the gesture as he rushed up the stairs to their apartment so he could make it in time. He'd
just unlocked the door when the phone rang.

"Korra!" he said as soon as he picked up.

"Hey, Mako! Did you get my present?" she asked.

"Yeah, I did!"

"Well, open it!" she urged him.

"Okay, okay. I'm opening it now," Mako said as he ripped the packaging and found a thick, leather bound photo album. He
opened it to find another hand written note from her.

"Mako, I hope this answers why I keep getting our picture taken! Just a collection I've managed to covet in all our years
together. Love you!"

"This looks amazing!" Mako marvelled as he looked at their first picture together in their pro-bending uniforms.

"There's more!" Korra said with such enthusiasm that he simply had to smile.

He flipped the pages and found more pictures of them Some taken when they were together seven years ago, and some more
recently. Each of them had little handwritten notes that made him miss her more than ever.

"This is incredible, Korra," he managed to say once he was done looking at it.

"So, you like it?"

"I love it. I miss you," he said quietly.

"I miss you, too," she replied. "I know it's not the same as me being there, but just know that... part of me is always
with you."

"I thought I was supposed to be the sappy one in this relationship!" Mako joked.

"You're sappier!" Korra retorted. "Enough of that. How was your day?"

They ended up talking until Korra had to sleep, and even as he struggled to stay awake, he couldn't help but smile at all
the memories they'd made together as he flipped through the album again, and he finally understood why people said a
picture was worth a thousand words.
Hi guys! I don't have much of a reach, but I WOULD definitely ask you to go watch :icontashiandnima: if you Love ATLA and LoK. Their web comic, The Tale of Tashi and Nima or as I fondly call it, TaN, is amazing and deserves a lot of love! You can either check their dA or their actual website... There are more links on their to follow them on Twitter and FB. Here's their Tumblr!
