Aang's Tale

It was the end of the first day of school at Avatar Wan High and well it had not been as successful for either the teachers or the students but at least the school hadn't been burned down.

So on a scale of 1 to ten everyone was at least willing to give it a six and a half. Meaning it wasn't an overall bad experience but it still was far from perfect. Though you couldn't expect a miracle or a dream to be achieved on the first day could you?

As that final bell rang everyone was dispersing to go their separate ways to either go home or doing fun activities before going home. Though it was clear everyone had the dreaded homework to do once they got home.

Aang had been given homework by his art teacher but also in creative writing, chemistry, math, and philosophy. And it was all due by Friday.

He was to continue working on his art project and try to give his picture a face. Likewise in creative writing, he had to write a poem about his heart's desire.

For chemical science, he was to memorize the periodic table of elements so by Friday he could recite them perfectly. Then in mathematics, he was to learn the metric system inside and out and be able to pass a test on it.

Lastly, for the philosophy class, he was to take a renowned philosopher quote and then write an essay in what he thought he meant by it. Then write his own interpretation of those words in his own words.

Needless to say, it was an awful lot of hard work for the first week of high school to hit a young boy with and his 13th birthday was still two and half weeks away.

Therefore he was ever so happy when he saw Gyasto waiting for him with his pets, his dog Appa and his lemur Momo. He ran almost as fast as the wind to hug all of them.

"Hey guys, ready to turn my frown upside down?" he asked as the ring-tailed lemur ran up and down his arms and settled on his head.

"So young one how did your first day with the big kids go?" asked Gyasto asked as they made their way to ferry.

"Not so good at first. I ran into a trio of mean Fire Nation girls and one pinned me to the wall with paper throwing stars. The art teacher who an Air Nomad woman named Akanke got me down though," he admitted as they waited till it was safe to cross.

Gyasto at the mention sucked in a deep breath and looked like he's seen a ghost.

"Gyasto? What wrong?" asked Aang after they finished crossing the street.

"I just know Akanke is all. She was the only one who was very eager to be a teacher when we're looking for Air Nomads to teach at the school. She's a very nice and benevolent woman. She's also very pretty."

"Well, I admit she was pretty with her soft gray eyes and thick light brown hair. She wore in traditional style. You know pulled back in a long low ponytail? But she's beautiful, kindhearted and overall a nice person," Aang agreed thinking how she spent extra time trying to help him in art class.

"Yes, she really was again the only one who wanted to help young children and this world become a better place. She's always was a nurturing young woman. Very motherly."

"How would you know that? If boys and girls are kept apart?" Aang wanted to know as they were almost ready to board the ferry.

"You know the adults and leaders have to get together to talk about important things that affect the whole community, Aang.

I'm the Air Nomad representative at City Hall and Akanke has for a long time been asking me to do something to help bring many changes to this city. Though she always at times wish we ourselves would change ourselves."

"Hmm. She did mention something like she didn't agree with our customs. She said something about them being outdated?"

"Yes, she told me more than once she said it's time we stop living in the past and embraced the 21st century in some ways. But you must swear Aang not to speak of any of this with anyone, do you understand?"

"I promise. Looks like we're almost home anyway. This is gonna be so much fun," he muttered sarcastically with sad eyes.

There were several other Air Nomad kids who left the school but they weren't dressed like Aang at all. They all wore slightly updated and modified versions of air nomad student uniforms.

Most of them didn't have tattoos yet either but one thing was clear in many ways. They're all cut from the same cloth and fell in line with the program. There was little sense of individual between any of the many children.

They're in two straight lines with girls on one side and boys at all and none of them made any contact with the others.

They were greeted by a ten great leaders. Five older ladies and five older men who wore almost traditional nun and monks robes.

"Welcome home children. We trust your journeys were fair and the four winds favored you well?" they asked all the children and the children bowed their heads respectfully and replied.

"We journeyed well and let the spirit wind carry us through the world of curiosity and wonder. And now it's led us home. We are thankful to be safe and at home."

"Good. You know what you're to do. Return to your dormitories and we'll get to our chores. The girls from the east dorms you'll tend to the great greenhouses so our food is pure and untainted.

Girls from the west dorms please tend to our lemurs and dogs. Make sure they are well-fed, water and clean," the five elder sisters instructed the young girls who nodded and left to go fulfill their duties in an obedient manner.

"Boys from the north dorms will attend to the household chores within the temple. Boys from the south dorms will tend to the ground keeping chores.

After all the chores are complete we will then go to the meditation garden where will meditation till sunset. Afterward, we shall have dinner. After dinner and the dishes are washed you'll have your lessons in your ancestral teaching of Air Nomad philosophy and enlightenment.

Then you'll take your showers and return your dorm rooms and it's lights out at ten sharp." reminded the Council of Elders.

Aang groaned knowing if he was gonna do his homework he'd have to do it after he had showered and before curfew. Which only gave him like a two-hour window. The monks didn't seem to care about the fact that right now their students were also students in actual schools and therefore had an obligation to get their homework done and on time.

But that's what you got when you refuse to acknowledge there was a world outside your own little world and only begrudgingly allowed some kids to attend it. In fact, Aang was actually one of the few kids being allowed to attended Avatar Wan High.

Despite the mandatory order that all kids who were of grade level 8-12 the Air Nomads had their adamant beliefs of not being 'tainted' by modern day evils. Thus only allowing a handful to attend was just as hard as getting teachers to teach classes!

Aang really didn't want to be stuck doing chores as he was at the moment. He wanted to get started on his homework. But as it was he was being forced to pick up all dead branches off the ground with the other boys in his dorm.

"Ugh, this is going way to slow!" he moaned as Momo brought him some sticks. "Thanks, Momo. Okay, think Aang! What were some of those elements on that periodic table of elements?" he muttered to himself.

"Let's see, I know oxygen, hydrogen, helium, nitrogen, gold, silver, copper, nickel, iron, lead, potassium, platinum, neon, calcium, magnesium, sodium, zinc, titanium, iodine, sulfur, chlorine, arsenic, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus, and tin.

I mean everyone heard of those things! But what are the ones no-one heard of? Let's see come on, Aang think?" as he put the heel of his hand to the tip of his arrow trying to think of the first one that started with a "B" and it was on the tip of his tongue when someone yelled at him.

"AANG!"

"Ahh!" and he fell backward and the bag of branches split open and he landed hard on them.

"Well looks like Weirdo Aang did it again! You're gonna have to clear up this whole area on your own now and be late for mediation. And no-one gonna cover for you this time."

"But...it would only take us five minutes to get a new bag and clean up the branches!" he exclaimed.

"Why should we do your share of the work?" demanded the two boys in front of him with glaring eyes.

The boy on the left growled at him. "You're supposed to be mature and responsible when you get your tattoos. Like worthy of being a man and a leader. You're just a weirdo and so immature and not worthy of those tattoos!" snapped the boy angrily.

"Yeah, you don't know the meaning of hard work, discipline, or what it means to be an Air Nomad. You totally don't even know the meaning of respect! You're just lazy! All day you slack off and cause trouble and expect people to feel sorry for you!" the other boy shouted at him.

"I'm not lazy! I was working! I was doing my fair share! But I was also trying to do my homework! Which I should be doing right now!

I mean come on! Anka! Anil! I just started high school today! I got homework to do! That's something that needs to be done! And I've only got till Friday to get it done! Isn't that something important to do?!" he argued with the boys who looked at each other than him.

"Aang you shouldn't even be venturing to the outside world. It's poisoning your mind and soul. We are safe and so are our spirits. Whatever they teach over there is as important as the purity of spirit and reaching enlightenment!" the boy on the left named Anka informed him.

"Yeah, don't you already get in enough trouble because of all the temptations by the poison of this modern world and all the dangers within it? How can you call yourself an Air Nomad when you attach yourself to all these worldly poisons? You ought to be ashamed!" scolded the other boy named Anil.

And with that, the two boys left Aang behind as they went to go meet the others for meditation.

Aang sat down on a nearby rock under a magnolia tree and pulled tightly into himself and cried for a good while.

"Why don't I fit in guys? Why do I have to be such a misfit?" he inquired to his pets who taken upon on themselves to clean up the mess before Aang started to sing the song from the Rudolph Christmas special which is what he felt like at the moment.

Aang was still late getting to meditation and again his mind wasn't about being still or quiet seeking tranquility and peace.

All that was running through his mind at the moment was trying to remember the metric system. He was going it over and over in his head the notes he had taken in Pakku's class that morning till it becomes a mantra.

And then during the latter half of the meditation, he began to start saying the mantra out loud. First, it was barely noticeable but it didn't take long before he had disrupted everyone from their peaceful meditation.

"AANG!"

"What?! Ahh!" and he fell over once more and had the five council elders looking at him with angry looks.

"The Hall of elders now! Right now young man!" they're furious as they marched the boy away before turning to the other children. "You'll follow the schedule as planned. Finish your meditation and then go have your dinner. The Elder Sisters will direct you for now."

There was some snicker as Aang was marched past to indicate this wasn't the first time he'd been brought before the elders. Aang kept his head down as he was led down a long corridor door and up a flight of stairs to the top of the tower where the elders held their meetings.

He took his seat without being asked to sit as the elders took theirs and waited until someone got Gyasto. He arrived 20 minutes later and he looked angry but not at Aang but at the elders.

"What crime is my young ward suppose to have committed this time? What are you accusing of him this time?" he demanded to the five leaders who looked livid by Gyasto.

"He's been tardy, shown great disrespect and insubordination just tonight alone, Gyasto! And let's not forget the boy's already growing record!" spoke one elder named Tashi in an angry voice as he picked up a list and named Aang's list of 'crimes"

"Defacing private property, disturbing the peace, disobeying authority, and scaring the general public!"

"Aang has done no such crimes. What you called "Defacing private property, Tashi? He was merely in his own personal space attempting to do some art and the paint spilled.

Children are allowed to do what they wish within their own space and if Aang like how the paint looked after it spilled and then decided to get artsier with his own space by painting and writing poems all over his room? That is within his right as it's his space."

"How do you challenge the accusation of disturbing the peace or disobeying authority?"

"We've how many children on this small island? How do you expect a bunch of children of various ages to not disturb the peace or disobey authority at times, Tashi? They are kids! Teenagers!

It's what kids have done since time began! Wake up and realize that truth! It does you a bit of good to understand children will children and they all have the energy of the bullet and the more you tell them not to do something the more likely they are to do it!

That's perfectly normal! And when you have a lot of kids in a confined space its even more likely to happen. They're kids! Not adults and you can't train them to behave! They are humans, not robots!

They're gonna make mistakes, get dirty and causes a hell of a lot of trouble. That's just what kids do!" Gyasto informed the Council like they were idiots which technically they were as anyone with a brain knows that the truth about kids and teenagers in general.

"And what about scaring people?"

"You think you're not scaring him right now? So Aang gets into trouble like every other 12-year-old boy and if that is a reason to scare others then I guess we really are living the past if the 12-year-old boy just acting like a normal kid gives reasons for a whole island to get the willies!"

"You really do everything to protect him but nothing to discipline him! To teach him to behave and adhere to what is correct and the ways of our people! He didn't earn his tattoo and you know it, Gyasto!" viciously snapped Tashi as the others were trying to restrain the two from getting into a fistfight.

"For all of your information, I don't try and change my ward into something he's not. I let Aang be true to himself and let him find his own path in life.

And I think him embracing the future and having forward thinking and being true to himself and seeking to achieve impossible dreams shows he's got great potential and will change the future.

And as his guardian, it's my decision when I think he's ready for tattoos. When I judge he's reached the age of maturity, responsibility and true enlightenment whether you agree or not."

"What your ward needs are for you to stop mollycoddling him and be strict and discipline him and get him to behave!"

"What my ward needs right now is to get started on his homework. That's what he needs to do. I thank you for your time, my friends. But Aang's schoolwork comes first."

"Then if you'll not listen to us and not punish him yourself we shall. The boy shall not have dinner tonight nor will have breakfast in the morning! And that's final! And every time he misbehaves from now on he won't get a meal and he'll be forced to do double chores and I don't care what you say, Gyasto! The boy will learn his place one way or another!"

Aang had been silent during the whole exchange as Gyasto led him away as the Council seemed to be arguing with themselves and his stomach was already growling. Aang was crying.

"It's not fair, Gyasto. I thought we all were about peace and enlightenment and to be better than this. Why? Why do they pick on me?" he asked sadly as they went back to Aang's room that was indeed as different as he was.

Aang had painted the walls in an abstract pattern and written in very good calligraphy poems about his feelings along with his hopes and dreams. He then stared out of the window and gazed at the city and sighed.

"Why? Why don't I fit in?"

"Aang don't feel shame for who you are. You should always be true to yourselves and never assimilate yourself to be like others to be accepted by them. Check out your secret hiding spot."

Aang had a secret hiding spot under the stone bed. It was a hollow space that he hid all his secret treasures that he couldn't let anyone find out about. He opened it tapping a certain rhythm and started going through things till he came to a white package.

Opening it he cried again with tears of happiness. It was a takeout box from the Yon Cafe full of food for both vegans and vegetarians. At least he wasn't gonna go hungry."

"Thanks, how did you get this?"

"In some manner, Xiaoying perceived you'd get into trouble when you got home today. Therefore she snuck me a huge box chock full of her prizewinning vegan meals when I was waiting to pick you up. There enough for both dinner and breakfast in there."

"She's a good woman then. Well, I'll eat half for my dinner then get started on my homework."

"Just eat quietly so no-one knows, okay?"

"Understood. Thanks, Gyasto."

"Don't thank me. Thank your vice principal."

"I will."

"Okay. Goodnight, Aang." as Gyasto left the room.

Aang did eat half of the delicious food that night before hiding the rest under his bed again. Then he got to work studying for his chemistry and math tests the rest of the night.

Aang woke very early the next day to eat his breakfast and to study some more for math and chemistry. He knew he still had to work on things for art, creative writing and philosophy and all before Friday.

When he got to school for his second day Akanke came over to him right away. He was so scared she ask him about his homework but that's not what she asked him.

"Are you okay, Aang? I heard you're sent before the elders and they punished you just because you want to do your homework? You doing alright?" she asked him kindly.

"Um...I'm okay. It's not like it was the first time I was sent to be disciplined or punished. In fact, I've gone there a lot in my life. I'm honestly a misfit and never quite fully fit in with everyone else." he confessed sadly.

"Well, that's no reason to punish someone who is different or because they've got homework to do! Why is it the unforgivable crime is to be different?

I can't tell you how many times I was sent before the elders to be 'discipline because I just won't be tamed. I too had a wild spirit wind in me as well."

"Spirit wind?" he asked confused as he looked at her and she nodded before explaining what she meant by ' spirit wind'

"I followed the winds from the spirits and didn't want to be tamed. I didn't follow the rules either. I wasn't one to be a copy of everyone else. I wanted to dance my own dance and be my own person. So I followed the spirit wind and not one of the four winds."

"Spirit Wind? That's a good way to think of myself I guess."

"It's what my guardian Acacia called it. Listen to that Spirit Wind inside you, Aang. Never drift from it, but follow it where it takes you, alright?"

"Yes, Ms. Akanke."

"Just call me Akanke."

"Okay."

At least during his creative writing class, he was able to work on his poem and he took large portions from what he had written already on his walls but also had this new verse about this "Spirit Wind" Akanke had inspired about him.

When it came to Philosophy he had a rather tough one to answer. "It's one thing to show a man he's in error, and another to put him in the possessions of the truth." John Locke.

Aang felt it was right slightly tied to his life. Though his people had grown a lot in the past by achieving much spiritual enlightenment and detached themselves from the world so they could fly they'd failed in current times to see where in their own way made mistakes.

On one hand, their people had done quite a great deal of good through spiritualism and enlightenment. To seek purity for the soul and again great enlightenment. To be non-violent and respect all life.

But the errors were the truths of some aspect of their culture that hadn't changed and maybe some not just himself disagreed with. That maybe it was time to join the rest of the world? Those children should know where they came from? To not live in the past but embrace the future?

And that's how he was writing his essay in philosophy.

That only left him struggling in art class to really put a face to his faceless picture. He was able to add to the painting but still really could add any features.

When Friday came along he entered art class dreading it when Akanke came up to him looking at him fondly.

"Well, Aang, how is it coming? Can you show me how goes your attempts at improving the first painting of your heart's desire?" she asked him as he went over to his workspace.

"I'm so sorry, I couldn't do my homework. I still can't even put pretend features on my mother's face. I put a background in. How it looks in my head when I think of her, but I still can't put a face together, I'm sorry," he hung his head.

"Don't feel bad, Aang, this is excellent work for the first week of school. I was speaking with my colleague Piandao. We both agree you've got a lot creative in you. You clearly have a lot to say through art and writing.

So try and spend this year expressing through both what you really got to say. What that spirit wind inside you wants to say and take you."

"Okay, I'll try my hardest to let my Spirit Wind out."

"Good. Now see where it takes you next."

Aang only hoped that day was that he'd passed his chem and math test. When he left that day he saw Gyasto with his pets and carrying a long gray bag with him. His face split into a grin.

"Does this mean what I think it means?!"

"You've had a long hard week and earned yourself a trip to the skate park. I also brought your tablet. You can charge it at the Jasmine Dragon because I've to stop there to discuss somethings with your principal."

"That's great, Gyasto! Tomorrow night the start of the new season of "Meta: Ice Girl!" I hate to miss it!

"Meta: Ice Girl" was the most popular TV and book series amongst the kids of Republic City. There was almost not one kid from any of the four nations who wasn't a fan of the hit TV/Book series.

The story and show teach children to accept differences in people and the world.

The character, Meta was quarantined by her parents because her condition, which was born with skin a cold as ice and her life was as fragile as she could be harmed by heat sources, but she liked to sing about the people she watched from her bedroom window.

One day, some kids broke into her house on account of ghost stories and a dare. Eventually, they befriended Meta and led her outside to sing for other people, so she wouldn't feel as lonely anymore. This also seemed to cure her condition bit by bit.

It really was a hit with the kids of Republic City. It was that cool and addictive.

So first stop was the Republic City Skate Park where as long as it had wells and could shred you could come and catch some big air. It seemed a lot of kids where here to have fun to kick off the weekend.

Aang saw a few he'd noticed from his new school. There was that blind girl from his art class who surprisingly was doing amazing skateboard stunts amazing the crowd on the halfpipe

Over by the inline skaters' course, he saw Fire Nation couple he'd seen walking the halls and sat near during lunch. Afterall the boy with the burn scar and his jade eyed girlfriend would stand out in any crowd.

They too looked like they had the skills of pros as they tore about that course and did stunt after stunt perfectly just like that blind girl who could pull off her own stunts perfectly.

Aang was no different on his scooter when he dropped down into the pits and start to ride them and pulled off tricks with his scooter. He was already a natural acrobat given he was of the Air Nomad culture. Though again he really had learned how to shred it with his scooter and take it to the brink.

After spending an hour at skatepark he and Gyasto went to the Jasmine Dragon. Gyasto told him to find a table for himself as he went to a table where he was joined by several other adults.

Aang took out his tablet and was looking for someplace to charge it when a beautiful woman with a dove on her shoulder came over.

"Excuse me? Can I get you something to drink? Or eat?"

"Oh, I'm okay... I just need my tablet charged..."

"Oh, you must be Aang. Gyasto's young charge. When he was at our house a couple weeks ago he explained even though it's forbidden he bought you a tablet. Well, don't worry I can get a supercharger and make sure it's charged enough to last the rest of the month."

"Thank you! And you are?"

"Kimana. I'm your new Principal Iroh's wife. Let me get this supercharged and I'll be back with some mystery tea and cookies," as she picked up the tablet and left with it.

She was back ten minutes later with a beautiful dragon shape teapot with matching tea set and some cookies."

"Here you go. Some of my husband's mystery tea and my nephew and adopted daughter's godmother's mystery cookies. Enjoy and take delight in the mystery," as she sat down across from him.

"What makes it a mystery?" he asked curiously.

"Because you can't guarantee the flavor of either. And it's never the same flavor twice. Nor will two people at the same time experience the same flavor. So tell me what flavors are you tasting?"

"This taste like jasmine tea and peanut butter cookies," he replied honestly as he tried them.

"Hmm. That's the first time anyone said peanut butter. So tell me young one what's on your mind? For it looks like you have a lot weighing your weary shoulders."

"Why do you want to know?"

"Well, it's not just my husband who gives the sage advice, Aang. He's not the only wise man in the family. I'm a wise woman or do you think if I wasn't we'd be married for 30 years?"

"Okay, I guess you have got a point with that. It's like this, Miss Kimana,"

"It's simply Kimana or Kim if you like. I don't mind being called Kim."

"Okay, Kim. This is what my life been like for 12 years and what I really wish and prayer for," as he began the tale of his life. He told her every last detail from how he didn't quite fit in with the other Air Nomads to how he didn't totally agree with their ways.

How he longed to be a normal kid and be part of the modern world. How he was having trouble like he assumed everyone else was in the new school. What he really like to do and was good at.

And above all, he wanted to know who his mother and father were. And he really really want to find his mother most of all. That he couldn't go the rest of his life never knowing who his mother was.

"Well, you shouldn't let others tell you who you are or who you're meant to be. And never let anyone stop you from achieving your dreams. And yes there nothing wrong with wanting to know who your Earthly parents are.

But the question of Who I Am has already been answered long ago and by knowing that answer it will help you answer the rest of your earthly questions."

"What do you mean? Who Am I? I don't know who I am. That's what I'm seeking to find out."

"You do know who you are Aang. He already knows who you are and if you give it to him he'll do the rest and help you find what you seek," Kimana explained and tilting her head back she closed her eyes and cleared her throat before looking back at him and singing to him the answer to his question.

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart?

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading:
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still, You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours.

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again?
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading:
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still, You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading:
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still, You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours, I am Yours.

Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
'Cause I am Yours, I am Yours!

"Give your troubles, heartache, and pain to Him, Aang and he'll take it and give you all you need and help you find what you're looking for. Trust him."

Aang was very surprised at that response even more so when she reached down and picked up a flowerpot from the ground and gave it to him.

"Here a gift."

"What is it?" he asked perplexed.

"A hybrid of all four nations flowers of true love. Take care of it and see it bloom. And as you care for it with your heart you'll grow and bloom too. Gardening is good for the soul because your own soul will be tended too and grow with the flower as well."

"If you say so and it will help I'll do it."

"Trust me this will help you. Now let me get your tablet for you so you can get home and tomorrow watch Meta: Ice Girl"

"How did you know?"

"What is every other kid going be watching tomorrow at nine o' clock? The 1-hour 3rd season premiere. It's a no-brainer, really." she chuckled.

Aang smiled and finished his tea and cookies. He then thanked Kimana as she gave him his tablet and bid him and Gyasto adieu

He notices before he left she seemed to be now heading with another plate of tea, cookies and a plant to the that Water Tribe Girl and who looked her brother who were also sitting by themselves in another corner of the tea shop.

The next night while hiding under the blanket with earphones in Aang watched season 3 premiere of Meta: Ice Girl who with her new friends were being made to work with others in hopes of making big changes to change their hometown.

He smiled and whispered to himself as the end credits were playing "I wish the world would change for me like it did for you Meta. I really wish it would."

Chapter 3. Aang's tale.



Each of the next four chapter A Tale chapter starts right after the end of the first day of school and will go from Monday to Saturday and cover the subject lives as we get to know them inside out.


Aang is picked up from the school by Gyasto and he's still feeling bummed as they take the ferry back to their home on Air Temple Island. It's here we begin to see some of Aang's problems and how him being 'different' causes problems.”


Despite he's got homework he has many things to do first. Which includes doing chores, 2 hours of mediation, and lessons in philosophy and enlightenment.


We see in each of these Aang can't sit still or not become like an imp and try to 'spice them up”


He also laughing, joking, not taking anything really seriously and loves to play pranks. And more than once throughout the week when he causes trouble he's brought before the leaders who thoroughly chastise him for his actions.


Going as far saying he should be ashamed to wear the tattoos he didn't rightfully earn and can't believe Gyasto said he had earned them when he's not in anyway, a mature, responsible, wise or enlightened man.


Gyasto defending Aang said Aang in his own way his the only one open to embracing change and has his own enlightenment and shows the potential to bring them out of the old and into the new.


After this latest punishment, Aang really is hurt and crying. Gyasto says it's time for some real fun. And they sneak out and go to the Republic City Skate Park where all the kids of all the nations go to use anything that you can use at a skate park to catch big air.


Aang is a master of doing tricks with his scooter and his own acrobatic stunts and he's happy when he's allowed to be himself.


On their way home, they stop for an hour and a half at the Jasmine Dragon as Gyasto needs to talk with Iroh and Aang needs a place to secretly charge his tablet so on Saturday Night he can watch the new season of the most popular TV/Book Series in Republic City.


One thing Aang and his "friends" all have in common and which binds them closer together is a popular TV and book series called "Meta: The Ice Girl." The story and show teach children to accept differences in people and the world.

 

The character, Meta was quarantined by her parents because her condition, which was born with skin a cold as ice and her life was as fragile as she could be harmed by heat sources, but she liked to sing about the people she watched from her bedroom window.

 

 One day, some kids broke into her house on account of ghost stories and a dare. Eventually, they befriended Meta and led her outside to sing for other people, so she wouldn't feel as lonely anymore. This also seemed to cure her condition bit by bit.



While he's sitting alone trying to charge his tablet Kimana pulls up a seat and begins to talk to the young boy and agrees to supercharge the tablet so it can go twice as long without needing a recharge.


She lets Aang first bare his soul and then she sings him a song full of advice, gives him a special flower and tells him she knows in her heart something good is coming on the horizon for him.


She then kisses his forehead gently and hands him back his supercharged tablet and goes back to her husband and they bid the Air Nomads who get back in time for dinner.


The next night after curfew Aang make sure everyone is asleep and the other monks have gone by three times before he takes his tablet out from its secret hiding place, pulls the blankets over his heads, pops the earphones in his ears and begins watching Meta Ice Girl.


While he enjoys the new episode he just sighs once and whispers the words. “I wish the world would change for me like it did for you Meta. I really wish it would.”


and we leave it there.

Phoenix Queen Akiko
The Ballet that Zuko and Akiko are performing in "Phoenix Heaven" is the Fire Nation version of Swan Lake.


So the Swan that Akiko is dancing is the Phoenix Queen and male would be Zuko who play whatever the male role in the ballet is and if like the Swan Princess movies I guess he's the Prince of the Sun.

I'm guessing I don't know what the actual ballet for sure is about I just go by the childhood movies of the Swan Princess. 

So here's a Phoenix Queen full costume as opposed to the already seen ballerina outfit she would be wearing to dance the part.

Nita in an evening dress
Bato's daughter dressed up for the Blue Moon Ball a very important party for the Water Tribe culture as Blue Moons do not happen all that often and she does look smashing and ravishing doesn't she? She turns a lot of boy's heads that for sure. To bad unknown to everyone she's a lesbian and in love with Zuko's cousin Ember. 

She's still freaking out if anyone finds out her secret but like Zuko figured out his cousin secret its Katara and Sokka gonna figure out their father's best friend daughter's secret!
