I'm starting to feel like a broken communicator, repeating the last message over and over but just about ups and downs lately so I need to change that. I'm sure Vallo isn't going to listen to my requests about not taking anymore of my people or bringing any of them back, so instead I'm going to focus on the good things. So I'll take a moment to tell you a brief bit about each person that was here, but went back home. I'd add on the people I'm hoping show up one day, but that would be a long list. So in order of their disappearances, here's kind of my farewell. I will try to keep it short! I am just thinking a lot today.
Zuko. Fire Lord Zuko from when I know him, as an old man. We weren't close, but I respected him a great deal. He, along with Sokka and my dad and a few others, saved me from being abducted as a child by a renegade group of benders looking to sow chaos. It's a long story, but he is very honorable and a great leader. Getting to meet a younger version of him helped me see that he's a lot like me, which gives me hope that I'll be at least a good leader as I age. I miss him.
Lin Beifong. I hated her when we first met. She was all stodgy about law and order and keeping people in their place, but at the same time I wasn't exactly doing her any favors by showing up in Republic City and throwing everything kind of, literally, through walls. She always did her best and stood up for what was right, even putting herself in harm's way. She is, without a doubt, a hero. I think both of us have grown a lot since that first meeting. I miss her.
Katara. Where do I start with what is basically my adopted grandmother? The one who taught me to master my waterbending and showed me understanding and compassion when I would just jump into things without thinking? It doesn't even matter that she was already connected to me through Aang, it's really just because that's the kind of person she is. I enjoyed meeting her younger self, too, like Zuko. In her case though, you can see that care and concern was always there and not something she grew into. I miss her.
While I will think fondly of them and hope they come back someday, I'm also happy they've been in my life and have had impacts on who I am as a person, even here.
Hi, so you can see I took a lot of the introspection discussions at the open house/temple stuff seriously and I think I'd like to learn more about the Jedi ways. While I don't have the Force, I know we've talked about how it's similar in a lot of respects. Plus I am always interested in learning new things to be a better person and Avatar. What do I need to do?
