    Summary

    "I realize this is a very strange question, given our respective . . . well, everything, but might it be at all possible for neither of us to kill the other? It would be a -travesty- to destroy you."

    Summary

    Adaine’s in the kitchen, Aelwen tells herself, staring at the glow-stars stuck to the bottom of the top bunk. She’s just in the kitchen or the bathroom or something, she’s fine. She’s fine.
    After twenty seconds of repeating frankly useless platitudes, she reaches for her robe and rolls out of bed, stepping into her slippers on her way out the door.
    (Sometimes it’s not about light creeping over the horizon; it’s that there’s a horizon at all.)

    Summary

    'There isn’t any shame in relying in others,' Zuko had told her, once. Face soft with sleep, curled up on her bedside in the facility, as she painted her nails in an attempt to stop chewing them. 'I learned it the hard way. Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom to climb your way back up.'

    'And sometimes when you hit rock bottom you break your neck,' she’d answered. 'Why let yourself get that low?'

    'It’s difficult to know which way is up and which way is down sometimes,' he’d said. Finger tapping his scar. 'It isn’t the hitting the ground that gets you. Sometimes it’s the fall.'

     

    Or, Azula takes the long way home. Featuring the passage of time, the life-changing aspects of a field trip across the Earth Kingdom, and making a place for yourself.

    Summary

    That night, with Appa snoring next to them and Katara snuggled against his shoulder, Aang breathed and counted. He raked his mind for very little tradition, every little custom, everything he could remember about Air Nomad culture. Otherwise, it dies with me, he’d thought, suddenly terrified. It dies with me.

    At ten, you become responsible for your own air bison. They’re companions for life. At eleven, each airbending child gets the chance to visit the wenwú shí of their Temple. At twelve, the standards become higher; assisting the air nuns and monks is your top priority. Thirteen, the first taste of travel; at the Eastern Air Temple, the Shēnqíng de hú will be the start of your spiritual journey. Fourteen is the age of enlightenment; with the mastering of your element, the arrows start being drawn over your skin.

    It’s a long process, and a sacred one. Each age brings with it something new; with each age, something grows.

    Needless to say, Aang hasn’t gotten a lot of experience with that. 

     

    Or, Aang never really stops grieving. Featuring Air Nomad culture, birthdays, and a conversation on a rooftop.
