66) Korra had impeccable memory, when it was something important to her. She remembered the way her mother cooked, the smell that wafted through their home and the spices that spilled around the floor. She could recall meeting Katara for the first time, the struggle of pain and happiness in her eyes striking a strong emotion in a small Korra. The one thing she would always remember though, the one thing she had kept with her for so long was that feeling of being peaceful. She can remember a night she was given, to go home from her training, and she sat outside, the sounds of her dad working and her mother humming, the feel of her warm coat wrapped tightly around her. The feeling of being calm and carefree, and just being safe. Being home.
64) One day Korra became extremely sick. She slept most of the day, only waking to eat or take medicine, but she still felt lonely since Pema was the only one in and out of the room. So the next day when she woke up with a warm plate of food and Jinora reading a book in the corner, she felt a little more at ease. Korra never asked why she was there and Jinora never told her how she tended to talk in her sleep when she was sick.
63) Korra loved to skip sleeping. She used to hate it, and most of the time she would get cranky, but there were these few nights when she would sneak out and roam the city. She liked to see the usually busy town asleep, calm, empty. After awhile, the nights alone turned to walks of company. A certain firebender matching her steps as she got to Republic City.
62) Katara is the only one who notices the many habits Tenzin picked up from Sokka. She remembers a time when Tenzin first sat in meetings, listening to his father argue quietly with Sokka who was loud and very strong in his decisions. She remembers the times when Tenzin would hardly speak to anyone, except on lazy walks Sokka insisted they take when he visited the Island. Now Tenzin is loud and commanding, he talks as much as he thinks is acceptable which often happens to be too much. He’s tried to eliminate the urge to use his arms during conversation but often slips when he’s rather fond of something. It’s something Katara cherishes to watch. She knows Sokka was an important person in his life, but it makes her smile to see just how much of an impact he had on Tenzin.
61) When Korra first heard about Aang she was tired, hungry, cranky and newly four years old. She didn’t want to hear the story her grandmother was telling her, she didn’t want to sit still for five minutes and she certainly did not want to learn why her home was such a special place to so many ‘important’ people. So naturally she threw a fit, she pouted and crossed her arms and stared at everything other than the old woman who was going on about glowing tattoos and strong winds. Korra didn’t even realize it, but her grandmother did. As the night dragged on and the cold was beginning to settle, Korra began to fight her sleepiness. She had decided at some point that the story was more important than being asleep.
60) Katara never mentions it but she hates to fly. After the situation with Appa she had problems getting on other sky bison. Appa had been depressed after Aang had died and would only eat or sleep if she was near, so on a whim of desperation she took him up to the Eastern Air Temple. Appa slowly became better but Katara knew he was also old. She stayed with him for a month as he slept and ate and moved around the island but eventually he became too tired. On his last night she laid on his back, his slow breathing and soft growls the only comfort as she cried into his fur. When she left the island with a bison that wasn’t hers and an airbender that was her son, she felt lost. It was the first time she rode a sky bison that wasn’t Appa.
59) Korra always had these deep feelings that she couldn’t always explain. They usually happened randomly, like the one time Katara hugged her she just felt like she was home. Or the time she saw Tenzin trapped and in danger she felt immense anger and worry. Even when she played with the airbending kids she felt like she was on top of the world. At first she thought it was her, but it just felt different. Like the emotion was there, affecting her, but it was almost out of reach, something she saw rather than felt. She soon found out it was Aang, but she didn’t figure this out until much later when she was in the spirit world talking to him about his grandchildren. It was then she felt on top of the world again.
58) After that one game of pro-bending, Tenzin found himself hooked. To ease his obsession he would sneak up to the roof and listen to the matches as the White Lotus guards listened in as well. Everything had gone fine until Korra found him one night. He was waiting for her teasing, her questions and loud laughter, but instead all he got was a smile and her company. After that they spent many nights listening in to games on that roof, their loud cheering echoing across the island.
57) Bolin had always had this small obsession with Toph Beifong when he was very little. It was something his parents never understood. Whenever her voice was on the radio, whenever they walked past her statue, Bolin was immediately distracted and enamored by the presence of anything related to her. When his parents passed, it was something he never remembered. Those memories were just too small for a boy so little.
56) One day as Meelo was walking through a hall he spotted a torch. He decided that the small flame would be his claim to firebending, so with a wicked grin and a large breath, he blew a powerful gust of wind towards the bit of fire. He expected the flame to flow with the breeze, to fly through the air and be at his will. What he did not expect was the flame to disappear leaving him alone in a hall of darkness. He ran, flew, and hopped as fast as he could, trying to find a way out. The lack of light sent him into a panic and he ran into walls screaming the whole time. Finally he managed to crash through a door, his eyes wide with fright searching for any witnesses. No one was around so he dusted himself off and continued on his way.
