No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white, just our hands clasped so tight.
30 days of Avatar - Day 14: Favorite fight scene (The Last Agni Kai)
An Agni Kai is a traditional firebender duel that is centuries old. It is a fight for one’s honor and is won only when one opponent burns the other. Prince Zuko got his scar as the result of an Agni Kai, although he did not actually fight once he realized that his opponent was his father. The outcome of an Agni Kai affects the honor of both opponents. These duels are a popular method of resolving conflicts and are a source of entertainment for all spectators. The Royal Palace even houses a special Agni Kai chamber.

30 days of Avatar - Day 11: Favorite Weapon (Zuko’s Dual Dao Swords)
Dual dao swords or broadswords are forged with metal and were used as weapon by Zuko during his banishment. They can also be used individually as single-edged swords. Broadswords have been seen in the Earth Kingdom and the Fire Nation.
30 days of Avatar - Day 10: Favorite Book (Fire)
The true mind can weather all the lies and illusions without being lost. The true heart can tough the poison of hatred without being harmed. Since beginningless time, darkness thrives in the void, but always leaves to purify light.
30 days of Avatar - Day 9: Favorite Animal (Dragons)
The dragon is the original practitioner of firebending, capable of breathing fire. It passed on this ability to the Sun Warriors’ civilization, a precursor to the modern day Fire Nation. Nearing the end of the Hundred Year War, the dragon was thought to be extinct, due to General Iroh’s claim that he had killed the final one, following Fire Lord Sozin’s tradition of hunting them. However, Aang and Zuko discovered that two, Ran and Shaw were still alive, deducing that Iroh lied to protect the species.

The people of the Earth Kingdom are proud and strong and adhere to a philosophy of peaceful coexistence and cooperation with the other nations of the world. Earthbenders use their abilities for defense and industry and have fiercely defended their cities against attacks by the Fire Nation.
30 days of Avatar - Day 6: Favorite Element (Air)
Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly problems and concerns; finding peace and freedom was the key to solve their flaws in life. Airbenders continually sought for spiritual enlightenment, and, as a result, all children born into the Air Nomads were benders. The first airbenders learned their art from the sky bison.

Tui and La, your Moon and Ocean, have always circled each other in an eternal dance. They balance each other: push and pull, life and death, good and evil, yin and yang.
Aang and Korra parallels
Bloodbending is a specialized technique within the art of waterbending that allows a waterbender to hydrokinetically take hold of the various fluids contained within a living organism’s body and then manipulate them to control the movement of their intended target. It is largely seen as the darkest of all the bending arts. Knowledge of the art eventually became known to the public, and the practice of bloodbending was outlawed by Katara following the formation of Republic City.
Known Bloodbenders: Hama (inventor/founder), Katara, Yakone, Tarrlok, Amon/Noatak.
