Avatar: The Last Airbender → live action and as it should have been
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived in harmony. Then everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished…
They met on top of the mountain that divided their two villages. The villages were enemies so they could not be together, but their love was strong, and they found a way. The two lovers learned Earthbending from the badger moles. They became the first Earthbenders. They built elaborate tunnels so that they could meet secretly, anyone who tried to follow them would be lost forever in the labyrinthine.
But one day, the man didn’t come. He died in the war between their two villages. Devastated, the woman unleashed a terrible display of her Earthbending power. She could’ve destroyed them all, but instead declared the war over. Both villages helped her build a new city, where they would live together in peace. The woman’s name was Oma, and the man’s name was Shu.
The great city was named Omashu as a monument to their love.
“Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Long ago the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. One hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. And although his airbending skills were great, he still has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone. But I believe Aang can save the world.
wow, all from memory. go me! :)
Driving home from work earlier this week, I saw this incredible cumulus cloud emerging from the twilight sky above the San Gabriel Mountains and I resolved to try to paint it. It seemed like the kind of moment in nature upon which Aang would meditate.
