The mountains roar as they fall in piles of dust,
With my eyes wide shut, I see,
That I could be the strongest man alive,
But even I will fall,
Leaves fall from the tree,
The water runs dry,
My tongue tastes nothing,
Because I refused to see,
Evil has a heart, and a heart has evil,
They still say we can't change,
That I can't change,
We are all going to die someday,
So let's share a drink as the world burns to ashes,
Let the people eat the heart,
Drink the blood of glory,
Because these are our last days,
One last moment,
One last hell yeah,
One last kiss,
One last kill,
The spirits will rise as the bodies fall,
Swipe in and take it all away,
As the buildings burn,
As the fingers run over the keys,
We will still remain the same,
We will always be the same,
Like the last chance,
This is our day,
Face your demons, because we're all dead,
We won't get any better,
But I remember this,

Day 1: Mask
Katara's eyes widened in shock as the Blue Spirit suddenly appeared on stage to save the Avatar from Commander Zhao's clutches. She stared in disbelief at the sight of the mask. It was exactly the same as the one she had seen reoccurring in her dreams since she was a little girl.
"My hero!" The actress playing Aang proclaimed, jumping down and sitting on the overly large mask to be carried off of the stage.
The Actor playing the Blue Spirit called himself the "scourge of the Fire Nation," which piqued her interest, and he saved the Avatar. She couldn't help but wonder why Aang hadn't ever mentioned it to them before. She was about to ask when her thoughts were cut off by the wretched sound of the actress who played her, crying

"Dad Do we have to do this? Katara's complaint sounded like a whine.
Now, Katara, I don't like it anymore then you do. You know just as well as I do, though, that the new world order is expecting this." Hakoda wrapped an arm around his daughter's shoulders and drew her against his side. "I've already drawn the line about any arrangements being made. The southern traditions will be upheld."
Katara nodded and hugged him around the waist, letting out a soft sight. Tonight, the South Pole was hosting a party in her honor, to announce that she was of marrying age. Since the end of the war and the restoration of the Southern Tribe, and after the untimely death of the Northern Tribe's princess, Katara had become well know world wide as being the new "Water Princess." Of course, this sounded ridiculous to her.
Crossroads of Destiny 4.5 PART 1 of 2 FOR CHAPTER 4 (Never understood how Katara, a 14 year old from the middle of nowhere, who grew up with a bunch of women and children, somehow kept a comatose Aang alive during those weeks he was out. I'm studying to be a doctor, and naturally curious about such things. Soooo, I looked up nursing care for comatose patients. Let's say that, according to The American Journal of Nursing Volume 54, Aang in a coma had a lot of risks for death and complication. For one, Asphyxia (where he can't breathe due to laying on his back or one side for too long and mucus and throat constriction), waste retention (not going to even comment how did they even deal with that??? Catheters weren't around it seems, and this whole subject probably made for some awkward moments ), bed sores, and sepsis of the many wounds he incurred.

Pairings: Tokka (main), Kataang (beta)
The war was over, but there was still unrest. Ozai had been tried and executed, but there were still war criminals to bring to justice. So Team Avatar made it their mission to seek them out and take them alive if possible.
At the moment, it was just Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph and Appa. Zuko couldn't go with them, unable to pull himself away from his challenging leadership role. Momo stayed with Zuko as a token that the family's separation wasn't permanent.
They were flying over a large expanse of rain clouds, Sokka at Appa's head. The Water Tribesman loved to steer, but Toph wished he would sit in the saddle with her more often. She'd never admit it out loud, but he was one of the coolest people she knew, and probably the person who understood her best.

The halls of the Fire Nation palace were dimly lit. Shadows danced by the light of the sparsely placed oil lamps. Behind the decorative pillars provided excellent hiding places.
Katara entered the royal bedroom after finally getting Lu Ten to go to sleep. Zuko was already sitting in bed propped up by a mountain of pillows. He wore a pair of silk sleeping pants and a robe that was left open to reveal his well sculpted chest and abs. She swallowed at the sight of him, trying not to let the image soften her annoyance. "It's not fair, how are you able to put Ta Min to sleep so quickly?" Of course, she knew it was because she was too soft on her son and let him talk her into an extra bedtime story Twice!

It had once been warm there, they said. Korra wasn't sure if she believed them.
Certainly, it was a Very Spiritual Place (as she called them in her head, but never spoke out loud). The energies of life were strong on the little island in the center of the ring of ice. The snow fell slower there, as if time itself was relaxing in the soothing quiet. It was shielded from the Storm Planes by massive cliffs, and hidden from the city by an empty temple. Korra had only discovered the entrance during some idle exploration of the place; she happened to catch a glance of a wooden door standing out against the shadow-covered walls of ice, and forced her way in. Wood was uncommon enough in this dying settlement to arouse suspicion, especially in one as challenging as Korra.
She might have been the latest Avatar, but the old traditions had not yet died, and outspoken foreign women were tolerated but not encouraged.

"Tenzin, sweety, Momo isn't wearing a diaper."
"No Mommy, Momo made a poopy diaper on the grass!"
Katara smiled at her son. "I think you have the words a little mixed up. You can't have a poopy diaper without a diaper. Otherwise, it's just poopy."
"Okay," was Tenzin's quick reply. Whether he really understood would be for time to tell.
Katara picked the child up and carried him back to the village. "Anyway, we don't have to worry about Momo's bathroom habits. He'll bury it and then come find us. He's a very clean animal."
"Because he licks himself?"
"His fur, yes. That's how lemurs stay clean."
"Does Appa his lick his fur?"
Katara smiled, imagining the sight. "Have you ever seen him do that?"
"Noooo," was Tenzin's reply, although his ambivalent tone seemed to indicate some residual fascination with the idea.
"Appa needs us to give him baths when he's dirty. And isn't it fun when we all work together to wash Appa?"

"I don't wanna sleep " Taro said glancing at his mother's swollen belly. Eri sighed softly.
"Alright, is your brother sleeping at least?"
"Uh huh," Taro nodded.
Eri put a hand over her belly as she sat up on the couch. Taro took the opportunity to sit next to her. Eri noticed Taro's gaze hadn't moved from her eight month pregnant belly. "Is something wrong sweetie?" she asked gently.
"Why are you and Daddy having another baby ? Are you bored with me and brother ?" he asked.
Eri blinked. "Oh Taro no, we've gone over this. Just because me and Daddy are having another baby doesn't mean we don't love you. It just means you're going to have a little brother or sister."

From his spot perched upon Appa's head, Zuko stared out towards the horizon. "Zuko, don't worry, we can take Azula." Katara's voice broke through his thoughts. He had almost forgotten that she had moved to sit beside him.
"I'm not worried about her, I'm worried about Aang. What if he doesn't have the guts to take out my father?" He looked at her before speaking the words that weighed heaviest on his mind. "What if he loses?"
Her reply came quick, full of determination and faith, as if to convince him that she spoke the truth. "Aang won't lose. He's gonna come back," but even her resolve faltered and she looked away. "He has to "

They wouldn't even let Gyatso drop him off at the Eastern Air Temple.
At least it wasn't cranky old Tashi. High Monk Pasang himself saddled up his Sky Bison and flew alongside Appa for the whole journey. He didn't speak much, but every so often he would look over at the younger Air Nomad, and offer an encouraging smile.
It didn't make Aang feel any better. He was still the Avatar, and still leaving his home and mentor.
Pasang handled the introductions when they arrived at the Eastern Temple. Mother Iio met them, and to Aang's eyes, she hadn't aged a day since she led him and the other young monks to choose their Sky Bison companions. Unfortunately, the memory brought to mind all the friends Aang had left behind, and the isolation that had fallen upon him even before leaving. He barely listened as Pasang explained why 'the young Avatar' had to be removed from Gyatso's care, the High Monk stressing the perceived need for 'discipline and more training' in Aang'

The teen was standing in the middle of the kitchen, his back to Eric, surrounded by various cooking instruments. His main problem, though, was what looked like an entire bag of flour that exploded at his feet, liberally dusting his jeans and shirt.

He'd spent weeks carving the mold, he said, and months saving up the money for the gold. He said she deserved it. Said he loved her.

Ohev was a good man, she knew. He was pure-hearted, and he loved her for who she was, not for the porcelain doll her parents thought she was.
