Team Avatar gets captured, and it is not the end of the world but it is still an experience unpleasant and unkind. Katara grits her teeth and she does not grin but she does bear it.
“Life isn’t fair, Katara,” Sokka had told her once, eyes hard and knowing and caring and real, and she had tasted a challenge on her tongue and decided you couldn't know unless you tried.
Because listen, listen, her kindness is not in her predisposition, it is an effort and a battle all to its own, and she will fight for her right to live in a world of her own making with her every breath. Her core is made of ice as hard as steel. She is not a blessing- she is a warrior, and if you think she will stand to be knocked down or belittled or broken you have never been more wrong.
Life has never been fair but Katara will never stop trying to make it so. This is not soft or naive or an illusion of bravery, this is a strength, and it is hers, it is hers, it is hers.
(Team Avatar gets captured, and they escape, and they live. This is how it happens.)
- Part 2 of childhood living is (not) easy to do
It's simple, really.
She's always hated him. More than anyone else in the world. She wants him out of their way, out of their lives.
So when he doesn't come back from the Boiling Rock, she's glad.
But then Aang and Toph decide they're going back to get him, and she can't let the Avatar set foot in the most secure prison in the Fire Nation—the world, probably—mere weeks before the comet. The fate of the world lies in his hands. No matter what, he can't get captured.
So she goes instead.
(It's not so simple after that.)
