So, are you going to restore EVERYONE'S bending? Even the Shin and Zolt's and the other Triad's?
“Yeah. I guess I will.”
Because being a bender didn’t make them a criminal, and even though Avatar Aang had shown her the price that Yakone paid for his pride, Shady Shin, Lightning Bolt Zolt, and all of them were just as much victims to Amon’s tyranny as anyone. Amon hadn’t been fighting to keep the peace when he’d stripped their bending away—he’d just been punishing them for his own past.
“I think people need to see that bending isn’t what makes a person good or bad, just like it doesn’t make people better than other people. They had something stolen from them, and they deserve it back.”
Besides… If they continued in their ways, a certain newly-restored metalbending ex-Chief could always serve up some vigilante justice, right?
Honestly, you seem to be learning bending faster than Roku or Kuruk did.
“Well, of course I am. That’s because I’m awesome.”
Oh, shoot, they could probably… hear her or something.
“No, but seriously, uh, I did get a head start, remember? Before Avatar Aang, they never revealed an Avatar until their sixteenth birthday. I’ve been bending all the elements since I was practically a baby.”
“And as far as I know, none of the Avatars before me ever had a… you know, permanent block in being able to bend any of the elements like I do airbending.” So there was that, too.
I bet you're a great sand bender. Or maybe mud.
“Of course I am. Sludge, too. You wouldn’t believe how many times Naga accidentally bumped the dirty snow from the roof on the sentries in the guard tower. I had to get really good at cleaning it off them, too.”
I want to know more about that woman who burned a country down with a dragon and flew into a Volcano. Is that weird?
“Ha, not really. But you’d have to ask Jinora about that.”
“I have no idea where those girls were getting that stuff from.”
You're gonna find a way to return someone's bending, right?
She hadn’t thought about it much; her main objective had always been to stop Amon before he could force that on any other benders.
But with how Tenzin himself had said it was impossible, how whatever it was that Amon seemed to be doing was already so absurd… She just didn’t know. As much as she wanted to promise that—
“Yes, I will.” But even her usual confidence couldn’t make the lie sound convincing.
You just know Katara Took Korra Penguin Sledding when she was a kid.
“Of course she did!”
Did Sokka ever get his boomerang back?
“Sorry, I don’t think so.”
“But I’m pretty sure Toph bought him a new one.”
Has anyone ever foamed at the mouth in your mere presence? ((Man I hope his descendent shows up))
“Not yet.” Hopefully, not ever.
Not even Sabertoothed Moose Lions?
“I hug a polar bear dog everyday, so no.”
Why do you get some many anons? Are people really that afraid to talk to the Avatar?
“I’m not really sure. I guess?”
She was just a normal girl, though. Most days, that’s all she wanted to be treated like.
