The Last Train Home
Fourteen years after the war, a lone spaceship appears in the sky. The former members of the Avatar program watch its approach – expecting the worst, fearing for their adopted home. Then the ship lands. And suddenly, nothing makes sense anymore.

Five seconds too late
This is a different kind of Jake/Neytiri romance, the story that would've unfolded had she been delayed for just five seconds while trying to reach him following the fight with Quaritch.

Author's Note:

For reasons I cannot fathom (to quote Grace), this seems to be the most popular one-shot I've put up on ffn, having received the highest number of both reviews and favorites. I am pretty bemused by this, as I consider "Sleepyhead" to be the least ambitious fanfic I've ever written. It's silly and fluffy and sappy and very, very short, and I dashed it out in one sitting without much thought.

Don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining. I just find it rather funny. :-)

Default Story text

Neytiri watches Jake sleep, her mind full of drowsy contentment. They had fallen asleep under tsaheylu the previous night, and for the first time, she had glimpsed the beginnings of his dreams instead of the sudden vanishing of consciousness that used to mark the moment when he'd fall asleep. The sensation had always been rather jarring. She used to startle awake and stare into the sleeping avatar's face, feeling its vacantness through the link and knowing that the real Jake was far away.

The bond has separated during the night, but Neytiri is still enjoying the knowledge that Jake is right here, in this body. She loves knowing that she can call him back any time she wants, without relying on Sky People "technology." It's all she can do to stop herself from waking him right now, but she forces herself to wait patiently. Jake is sleeping so peacefully, and she knows he must've been very tired. Yesterday had been a big day for him, after all.

Neytiri waits until most of the clan is up and stirring, then decides it's fair to wake her mate. She shakes his shoulder lightly with one hand.

No response.

Neytiri is gripped with a sudden, irrational fear. What if the spirit transfer wasn't as successful as they thought; what if something has gone terribly wrong in his sleep?

She shakes him harder, with more urgency. "Jake. Wake up."

"Nnnnngh." He shifts his body sleepily, but doesn't open his eyes. Their shared hammock swings gently from the movement.

Neytiri's relief is mingled with surprise at the sleepy sound. Then she smiles playfully. It occurs to her that this is a side of him she's never seen before.

"Good morning, Jake!" she says, making sure her voice is cheerful and just a touch too loud for comfort.

"Mmph." He rolls onto his back, throwing an arm over his eyes to block the sun. "Five more minutes," he mumbles.

Neytiri grins. "What is wrong with you?" she teases, rubbing his forearm. "You used to be so alert when you woke."

Jake moves his arm just enough to allow him to shoot a bleary glare at her through one half-open eye. "Well, yeah, but it used to be that when I 'woke' I'd actually already been up for at least half an hour. AND dumped a couple cups of strong coffee into my other body. Guhhh, coffee." He rubs his face with one hand. "I had no idea caffeine addiction was translating through the Link."

Coffee? She makes a mental note to ask him to explain this, later, when he's more coherent. For now, she tugs at his arm.

Jake slowly shifts into a sitting position, grumbling, and laboriously stretches out his shoulders and back. Now we're getting somewhere. Then, without warning, he grabs Neytiri around her torso, pinning her arms to her side before she can fight back. He flops back down, causing the hammock to swing wildly, and crushes her to his chest, burying his face in her hair. His voice comes out muffled as she struggles to escape. "Five more minutes."

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives.
