    Summary

    When Team Avatar reaches an Earth Kingdom village which is being attacked on a nightly basis by a monstrous spirit, they meet a mysterious young man with ring of blue around his golden iris, who seems to know more about spirits than he lets on.

    Aang, as the bridge between the physical world and the Spirit World, invites this spirit-expert, Lee, to travel with him in order to learn about it, not knowing there is more to this stranger than meets the eye.

    Summary

    The Blue Spirit turned and peered at her through the slits in his mask.

     

    “You’re not really a spirit, are you?”

     

    The Painted Lady froze, turning her head to stare at him through the crack in her veil.

     

    “I am just as much a spirit as you are,” she said, gazing out over the river.

     

    The Blue Spirit always manages to help her when she needs him. How, she hasn’t a clue. But boy, is she thankful.

    Summary

    “What do you remember?” Iroh asked, his voice grave.
    Zuko winced.
    “Everything,” he whispered, his raspy voice breaking.

Meanwhile, the remnants of the Southern Water Tribe get washed into the Foggy Swamp on their way to join their sister-nation in the North Pole and are taken in by the tribe of waterbenders there. The Avatar returns a hundred years after disappearing to unravel all of their destinies.

    Summary

    In a shocking turn of events, Katara finds herself assuming the identity of Princess Yue after the Siege of the North when Prince Zuko mistakes her for the water tribe princess. He brings her back to his father's stronghold of New Azulon, formerly Omashu, where she is held as a political prisoner to force the North's cooperation. While there, she meets some unlikely allies who are plotting to overthrow the Fire Nation's brutal regime.

    Due to his part in the Siege of the North Pole, banished and disgraced Prince Zuko is welcomed home with his honor restored after five years away, only to find himself the victim of an assassination attempt and political plots. He finds himself growing closer to Princess Yue despite their circumstances, and soon, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he turn his back on his family, his throne, or does he help his father stomp out insurrection and bring the Earth Kingdom to its knees, no matter the cost?

    Summary

    The rules had been crafted carefully over the course of many years, by unspoken agreement that nonetheless bound them both. The Rules included:

    One: the Blue Spirit does not speak
    Two: the Painted Lady does not remove her weimao or veil
    Three: either Spirit would give their life for the other -
    Four: but there is no guarantee one or the other will materialize at any given time
    Five: Spirit Business must never be discussed
    Six: only spirits can be in love

    Unfortunately, The Rules prohibit the Painted Lady from discussing the rules governing Spirit Business in the present company.

    “Are you really in love?” Rylee asks.

    The Painted Lady removes the square of felt one last time and wrings its contents into the basin at her side. Sighing, she tucks the threadbare blankets around Maalen and sits back on her knees. There is no harm in being truthful here. Only spirits can be in love, and tonight she is a spirit.

    Summary

    The Painted Lady was growing suspicious. Every time The Blue Spirit disappeared, Zuko was nearby. And now he has the pacifier from the baby they just rescued. Before she could question him, Zuko panicked and hugged her saying he follows the fights because he's in love with her. Unfortunately for both of them, that was the exact moment Ozai barges in.

    And that's how The Painted Lady got invited to dinner.

    Summary

    The figure doesn’t reply, just takes a step forward, the light of the moon beaming down on him, accentuating the mask he wears, the terrible frown and hollow eyes. Still, Katara smirks, approaching him languidly, the corners of her lips fully curved into a smirk now.

    “I haven’t been causing trouble,” she promises, reaching out and running a delicate finger down his arm, feeling the firm muscle beneath the tight black shirt he wears.

    Still, the Blue Spirit doesn’t reply - not that he ever talks.

    OR: The Painted Lady has a run in with the Blue Spirit.

    Summary

    Zuko, Prince of the Fire Nation has just been banished. He’s spoken out of turn, disobeyed Uncle, even disrespected Father . He’s failed the nation that he’s supposed to rule one day and deserves his punishment, not the possibility to regain his honor given to him by Father.

    Capture the Avatar? Okay. He resides in Ba Sing Se, the most heavily fortified city in the Earth Kingdom, but okay.

    Return him to the Fire Nation alive? Sure. He’s probably being trained by bending masters from around the world but sure.

    Get his honor back and learn to rule his nation with pride and justice? Fine. Azula hates him, Mother’s gone , and he looks absolutely hideous with his scar, but it’s fine.

    At least he knows where the Avatar is. After all, the Avatar is sacred. He must be protected in Ba Sing Se.

    Right?

    Or, the Fire Nation was more than thorough in their search for the Avatar, but Zuko learns early on that his honor had never been lost.

    Summary

    "Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribes are capable of adapting to many things. They have a sense of community and love that holds them together through anything. Fire is the element of Power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will and the energy and drive to achieve what they want. Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring. Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns and found peace and freedom." -Iroh
