Raising a Rebellion





Long ago my predecessor, Avatar Korra, stopped Amon and the Equalists. Amon may have died but his cause did not. A large exodus of nonbenders fled to the new country of the People's Democracy. Eventually, the days where benders and nonbenders lived together was nothing but a memory.

The people's democracy thrived and isolated themselves from the bending world. Many citizens believe the old tales of bending and the Avatar to be just that, stories.

Meanwhile in the bending world, Avatar Korra ruled with an iron fist and kept the peace in the nations until she died peacefully at 115. Then I, Avatar Suki, was born, and I was a failure.

Due to my favoritism to my own nation, the world plunged into chaos. Because of this, the spirits split the Avatar into four people, one from each element, and all of them were born in the People's Democracy. Avatar Korra gave me a world of peace which I made a world of chaos. Now I give these four new Avatars a world of chaos which I hope they will turn into a world of peace.

The night of the prison break was a night full of planning for both the team and Lin, the newly proclaimed Shuryo of the People's Democracy. Team Avatar was in the forest doing their jobs given to them by Hana. Hana and Nori were thinking of ways to escape the People's Democracy to go to the old world, Yue and Koda were collecting fire wood, and Orora and Rokki were acting as guards.

Trying to find a way out of the nation was a difficult one because every way to escape came with a challenge. "How about we go by boat," Nori suggested.

"That wouldn't work because we'd have to steal one and we can't risk being captured again," Hana replied plainly.

"My mom's dragon Sherubi! We can fly out of here," Nori said pleased with her idea. After the Fire Nation started hunting dragons during Sozin's time many dragons fled to this landmass.

"That's great if you want to get blown right out of the sky," Hana replied, much to Nori's annoyance.

"Well, what do you suggest," Nori said, thinking Hana was getting annoyed with her ideas.

"There is only one way. Lin has passed laws extending her term limit. Then she gave the powers of the courts to her and then she gained complete control of the military. Now she's made herself complete ruler of the country. There has to be some rebels out there. We have to overthrow her," Hana said, scared of Nori's reply.

Nori nodded, not wanting to accept the fact the Hana was right. Her mother was a tyrant and needed to be stopped. "I guess we have a plan then, but under one condition," she told Hana.

"Anything what is it?" Hana asked curiously.

"We can't kill her," Nori replied plainly and Hana nodded.

While Nori and Hana were planning the specifics, Rokki and Orora stood somewhere so they could view the city to see if anyone was coming. It was very silent because Orora knew Rokki would've much rather have stayed with Hana than with her. However, Orora was the one who broke the silence. "What's with the bear?" she said simply.

"Bear, what bear? I have no idea what you're talking about," Rokki replied nervously, trying to hide the truth.

Orora snatched his bag and pulled out Mushi. "This bear right here. I promise I won't tell anyone, I just want to know," she said softly, making sure no one could hear her.

"My parents were killed by members of a violent gang when I was four. They gave me this bear a few days before so I just... Kept it," he replied, getting a little upset.

Orora was surprised that he revealed his past, to be honest she was surprised he revealed anything at all. It made her wonder if he would've opened up if Hana asked about the bear.

There was another silence and Rokki then spoke. "Orora, I need to ask a huge favor."

"Anything, I'll do it," she smiled slightly.

"C-can you hold my bear with your things? I don't want anything to happen to him. I figured he'd be safe with you," he said quietly.

A grin spread in Orora's face. "Of course. I promise I won't let anything happen to him."

"Okay, thanks. His name is Mushi and he's allergic to papaya," he said, giving her the bear and she giggled. She held the bear smiling at it and then at Rokki.

Meanwhile when Yue and Koda were out getting firewood, Koda looked up at the moon. "Yue, what is it like to be the moon?" He asked her curiously.

"It's good sometimes and bad other times. I miss the sun. The only time I can see it is at sunset. It can also be lonely. The ocean spirit isn't the most talkative of the spirits," she replied, and they both laughed a little.

"Is that why you came back to the physical world?" He asked and she nodded slightly. "I bet it's nice being," Koda began, but was interrupted when Yue kissed him. "Um, what was that?" Koda asked, shocked.

"That was me doing something I didn't have the courage to say. Koda, I'm going to tell you a story. A long time ago I was a girl, a princess even, of the Northern Water Tribe. It's a nation in the old world. When I was born, I didn't cry, it was like I was asleep. The healers said I'd die and my mom dipped me in the spirit pond, and the moon gave life to me and I began to cry. My hair turned white because I was touched by the moon. When I was sixteen, I was promised to marry a man I didn't love. One day, the Avatar came to the Water Tribe and he had a friend named Sokka. I talked to Sokka and began to develop feelings for him, but I knew that I had a duty to my people. I couldn't help it, I fell in love with him. One day another nation, the Fire Nation, attacked my country. A man named Zhao murdered the Moon Spirit that was in the mortal world as a koi fish. Since the moon gave life to me, I gave it back and became the Moon Spirit. I had to say goodbye to Sokka and I thought I'd never love again. Until I found you," She explained and Koda was interested in knowing her true story.

"Me? You love me?" Koda asked surprised anyone loved him.

"Yes you. You're nice and sweet and..." Yue began going on and on about him and how even though she's a spirit they could find a way, but Koda wasn't paying attention. All Koda could feel was pure shock. Of course he fantasized once or twice about loving Yue, but doesn't everyone think about having a relationship with their best friend? Yue and him have been friends for a while and she was actually Koda's only friend. Had he loved her this whole time and not known it? And now she loved him too, he didn't know want to do. As she was rambling on Koda decided not to over think like he usually does, and he interrupted her with a kiss.

"Y-you love me back?" Yue asked hopefully.

"I'm not sure I know what love is, but I do know I like you. So I'm willing to give this a chance," Koda replied to Yue's excitement and she hugged him.

They stayed in each other's embrace for a while until they realized they'd need to get firewood. They got firewood and put it where Hana had instructed and Nori used firebending to light a fire. Orora sat next to Rokki but he had gotten up to next to Hana. Nori gave Orora a sympathetic smile and sat next to her. Yue and Koda sat very close to each other and held hands much to everyone's confusion. "Okay everyone, so the plan is to split up into 3 groups and raise a rebellion in the surrounding 3 cities to attack Amon City on the nation's 160th anniversary," Nori explained.

"Now the Kyoshi Warriors have the freedom to do whatever they want to keep away rebellion and find us so the situation in all the cities probably won't be the same," Hana said in a serious tone.

"Now how are we splitting up the groups? We need to make the groups to they are all as powerful as possible. I'm thinking Yue and Koda because their waterbending together is virtually unbeatable," Nori said pondering the other options for groups.

Yue smiled in excitement being with Koda. "I agree, lets do that!" She said enthusiastically.

"I call being with Hana!" Rokki said, much to Orora's disappointment. No one has confused her more than Rokki did. After giving her his most valuable possession, he still didn't want to be her partner. Any moment she thought he liked her, he did something that made her think he didn't.

Hana and Nori knew how Orora felt and didn't want to disappoint her and also Hana hated Rokki. "I was thinking you and Orora because of your obvious connection and ability to help each other out like at the river," Nori said, sweetly smiling at Orora, who smiled back.

"Oh, okay, that's a, um, good idea." Rokki replied softly not wanting to hurt Orora's feelings.

"So Yue and Koda, you're going to the town in the east, Rokki and Orora west, and Nori and I will go north," Hana said as if she were the leader. "Now. get some sleep, this plan starts tomorrow."

Back at Lin's castle a plan was also brewing. "Now warriors, do what ever you have to, to get the prisoners and put down the rebellions!" Lin said so angry, it was practically a scream.

"With all due respect, if we capture them they'll just escape again. We have to kill them," Priest Shang told her.

"You want to kill your daughter and my daughter?" Lin asked surprised at this man's cruelty.

"They are heretics and cursed by the spirits. If you want to start a new era of the People's Democracy, you must spiritually cleanse the nation. That means killing," he demanded.

Lin nodded. "Kill them, all of them. Oh and by the way, It's not the People's Democracy any more. I've renamed it to Diguo Lin," she said with an evil smile.
