    Summary

    "There were tales in the Northern Water Tribe, of women like Katara. Girls who woke up after a night of great moonlight, the sort that called even to non-benders, with sharp eyes and quick hands, wisdom in their tongues. In the North, warriors would come to their family and take them to the wild, to leave them to be one wth the ice and the sea.

    Kanna had been taught it was kindness; women could not not live well with such power, nor did they have the strong spirit to stand the weight of moon-touches. As if La herself were not a woman! "
     

    The spirits work in mysterious ways, and time is an illusion. So are pants, but time more so.

    Summary

    It will be said that the Avatar's wife waited at home for him, that he forgot about her more oft than than not, and had little to do with the furnishing and keeping of their mountain-home, quiet with the lack of children. It will be said that she was a kind and faithful woman, and that will be a lie, and that she spent her days waiting, which is a greater lie.

    It is a lie of her own making, though, so she does not mind it so much.

    Summary

    "We rise together."

    "We do. We will. We have."

    There will be other ceremonies, one for each of their people. They will clasp hands under the southern moon and recite oaths with thousands staking the future in every weighted word.

    This is only theirs. "

    Summary

    They say the Avatar has no deamon. They say the Avatar is the deamon of the World Spirit, made flesh and given life to care for their children.

    They are the bridge between worlds. Nobody ever wonders if bridges are lonely, yet they must be, mustn't they?

     

    A look into the Gaang and their solid, living souls.

    Summary

    Death is never beautiful, but some things do shine brightest in the dark. Some things do grow like this, underground, away from the sun? between the trembling crowd.

    Summary

    There is a half moon tonight.
     
    It hangs in the sky, a sickle-shaped candle, far away and dripping wax. A warrior dances under its light, nightdress swishing the brown grass. Her eyes are wide, teeth bared as she fights, every strike a memory. The moon watches, and loves her, and remembers.
     
    Suki has loved the moon longer than Sokka has either of them. The moon loves them both back. This is how it goes.

    Summary

    It's really simple: separate they're good, they're great, but if they wiggle around and make space, they fit.

    (It's not that they fit together without trying. It's that they try, and try, until they find the best fit, and then stick with it).

     
    Toph, Sokka and Zuko, coming together after the war. The world is in ruins; they rebuild it, and themselves along the way.

    Summary

    Zuko had blink a few times to realize the downpour had stopped, at least in a ratio of two feet around him. There was someone else walking a little in front of him, the only person without an umbrella he had seen since early morning.

    "Are you alright? You seem -- well, a little damp." The girl asked. Wrapped in a thick fur-lined woolen coat, it was clear the terrible weather didn't bother her, or if it did it was to her benefit.

    She was, of course, completely dry. Damn waterbenders.

     

    A "got caught in the rain without an umbrella and an attractive stranger is sharing theirs with me" AU.
