Chapter 6: The Trials of an AvatarI run. At first, it's easy. But soon the steady earth starts to shift. It melts into unstable, sandy grains beneath me. I sink deeper and deeper with each step I take. Soon, I can't lift my feet at all. I fall and try to pull myself out. I'm not strong enough.Chapter 6: The Trials of an Avatar3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Someone approaches. I don't ask for their help, but they offer it anyway.
I can't see who it is because of the sun's acidic glare. I blindly grab the wrists of my savior; they yank me up with such force, I fall over over forwards. I land in the foamy water I didn't know was there. Amon's masked face stares back at me. His eyes are black and empty. Slowly, his body sinks beneath the waves, his last words floating to the surface as bubbles from his porcelain lips. I reach forward, but he fades away. All that looks back at me is my shocked reflection.

Just as there are four elements
Existing in harmony with one another
So too are there four states of poetry:
Air is the element of freedom
Exemplified by the use of free verse
It has no structure and no true shape
But allows us creative control
Through the use of air as a poetic medium
We allow our emotions a freedom to be

Painted upon a canvas of emotional lines
We create a sculpture of structured rhymes

"-...awwfff?" A faint voice, cutting through the murkiness of sleep.
"Hnngh..." She could hardly move, her limbs like lead. Everything ached. Her entire body was a lump of numbed, sore flesh coated in a metal suit. The floor was cold against her cheek.
"Toph!" That voice - his voice. It was near, but muffled by the daze she was lost in. In this cloud of pain and confusion, his voice was waking her up.
Sprawled on her side, she meagerly grasped her deadened fingertips at the hard floor. Nothing. No pulse of the earth. This was disconcerting.
"Toph," he grunted out again, his voice forced and ragged. She could hear his approach amidst the scuffling of dozens of others, further off.
"Gugh-" was all she could manage out before a cough flew from her throat. Her fluids had been displaced, which was throwing her body for a loop.
"Agh, Spirits...You're OK." Fwumph. The

"Water, Earth, Fire, Air. We believed we'd saved the world by defeating Ozai and ending the war. But as the dust settled, new conflicts arose. And that was just the beginning...
"One hundred years of war had left the nations torn and divided. It was in Ba Sing Se, the great Earth Kingdom capital, that representatives from the Three Nations gathered to talk of Peace.
"My friends and I were hailed as heroes and we worked tirelessly to help bridge the gaps between our nations. A few weeks had passed since the end of the war but it was impossible to say if our efforts were making a difference
"And although Aang never talked about it, I could tell he was worried about the future; not just of the nations, but of the Avatar as well. Once he was gone, how would the next Avatar learn airbending? Was the cycle broken?
"As summer drew to a close, we faced the changing winds of fall; the Season of Air,
