Notes: For the first challenge of drabble_las. Prompt was "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

The old man paused. Squinting his eyes, he peered up ahead at a crowd clustered around the village’s notice board. Today had been uneventful, so with great deliberation he shifted directions and shuffled towards them.

“…a dangerous child with demon eyes…” he heard a person saying. A wanted poster was nailed up with several people reading out selections to the rest.

“…looks so angry…”

“…tattoos for each man he’s killed…”

“Hey! I don’t look like that!”

The crowd turned as one to stare at a small boy clad in orange. Another boy behind him smacked himself in the forehead.

This was one of the 3 or 4 drabbles that was on my short list in the fandom category. I wound up voting for another, but I thought yours was very, very good.

I didn't know the fandom, but didn't need to in order to understand what was happening. A good drabble should end with a punch of some sort, and yours did. I enjoyed the humor.

I was one of your votes for - I really liked this, and thought it did a great job of capturing Aang's impetuous (and slightly conceited) nature. It also made me laugh out loud, which not many of the drabbles made me do. (And, of course, that's more or less exactly what Aang looked like when he went all Avatar on someone....)

Great job!

Hehehe. A literal take on the prompt, but fitting.
