I don't need to wish to live here. I already do. In my world, there's always something to do. Always an adventure to go on. Also, the animals are so interesting here. Everyone there has such great work ethic because they train their whole lives to hone their skills as benders and warriors. They are also proud to be a part of their individual nations. Although there is a lot of conflict, the people all work together for the common goal- peace. (Seems like it, at least.) I'm a firebender, but I've controlled my emotions enough to generate lightning too. I'm even better than Azula! Firebending is by far the most interesting and dangerous form of bending. Being dangerous in this world is a good thing. People learn their place. I live in the Firelord's Palace. Yeah. that's right. I'm the Firelord. Fight me about it.
In my world, no one is equal. The harder workers benefit more. Of course there's the unfortunate people who have fallen on bad times or have no choice in their current situation, but it's a dog-eat-dog world, and the bigger dog gets the bone. People who train their whole lives in combat are better off than those who don't. To live in this world, you have to know that most of the time, no one will have your back. You have to watch it yourself. Take Azula for example; she spent her whole life thinking her mother favored Zuko over her and wanted her gone. So she spent her entire life molding herself into something that was almost unstoppable- a manipulative, lightning-generating, psychotic teenage girl. And you thought a regular teenage girl was psycho?!
Here, you always gotta be on your toes. Everyone is so quick to fight. Even after Avatar Aang ended the war. They also don't understand the spirits. Ever since Avatar Korra opened up the Spirit Portals, they've been lurking around like they own the place. While I may not like the spirits, I respect them. I can't say the same for others though. Spirit-related deaths are up 93% and it's only getting worse. The people need to understand that the spirits were here first and they're here to stay. Everyone needs to just relax and not get their togas in a bundle.
I was kidding. I really don't live in this world, but don't act like you weren't fooled! I really would love to live in this world though. The characters in it are so unique from other worlds. The traditions and folklore are unmatched. I think one of these days that I'm gonna open up my own spirit portal and go to the land of the Avatar. If only someone would help me...
I disagree completely with Uncle Iroh. Power is everything. Even though power may corrupt, you're not losing any of your power. Power keeps you alive. By having power, you get the protection you need. No one will dare defy you. To live in a warring world, you have to let go of what makes you happy and hold on for dear life to what keeps you alive. I would let go of all earthly ties and become something else. Something more. I'd basically be a more badass version of Azula. If that's even possible.
I would go a lot of places in my new home. After honing my skills as a firebender, I'd travel the world winning Agni Kais so everyone knows damn well that I mean bussiness. When that's not enough I'd visit the one and only Koh, the face stealer and punch him right in his ever-changing face. All while showing no hint of emotion. After that I'd visit Lake Laogai and get it up and running again. I'd hide it in plain sight. No one would know people are still being brainwashed under a lake. But ya gotta have friends. Aang went on his adventures with his trusty band of friends; Toph, Katara, Sokka, and Zuko. I'd have my friends too. I'd befriend the best of warriors from each tribe. Only one per tribe, I'm not leading the second March on Washington or anything. My friends and I would all travel the world being badass together.
And what of helping those in need? As I said before, it's a dog-eat-dog world. I'd have better things to do, like ride the serpent at Serpent's Pass. I'd have no time for petty commoners and their problems. I have serpents to ride! Maybe once in a while I'd fry a fish or two for them with my awesome firebending, but nothing too major. Being apathetic towards others will keep me alive. I'd never pull a Katara and try to feed a whole town. Ya feel?!
I wouldn't only be just having fun on my adventures though. You can never learn too much. Something I'd study is Chi Blocking. I'd seek out Ty Lee and get some pointers and maybe see if I can hit some points on her if you know what I mean... (; Chi blocking is something I'd use if I'm in a good mood and don't feel like turning my opponent into a ash pile. At least you don't have to get the vacuum out of the closet after you Chi Block someone.
So now I told you my deepest desire... To visit Avatar World. It's a vast and interesting place. I'd never run out of things to do there. I'd be the most powerful bender to ever do it. Well.. That's all I have. See you later, beautiful.
