|The Unavoidable End|
The Ides of March have come...
Thus ends a story bathed in the world's blood,
As the bullet pierces body and breast
Of the young Avatar, ending the flood
Also putting the Avatar to rest.
If only I had told them before now,
If only I remembered loyalty,
When we first joined together, and that vow,
Not even Liwei's standing, royalty,
Could break our great unmovable resolve.
To make the world a better place for all—
To see that corrupt world simply dissolve—
And here, now, for that purpose I will fall.
But they should have known that this must occur,
For I'm sure, if they knew, they would concur
That this is the only way, this is fate.
I knew as soon as I saw Kyoshi,
Roku, Aang, Korra, that the news which wait,
Would not be pleasant, but crucial for me.
It was that I must die at the portal.
The energy of the Avatar's death,
Of his rebirth, thought always still mortal,
Would be that final action: a last breath
To close all the portals once and for all.
Why did I not tell this to my friends? They
Could have taken it, to later recall
How I died, but saved the world from dismay.
Through our adventure, I was no zero.
In fact, I can call myself the hero.
Book Three: Water - End
- The ending of Emblem of the Outlaw was timed so that it would be finished on the Ides of March.
- The idea to have the final chapter in Shakespearean sonnets was inspired by someone from my school who has been procrastinating on reading *coughcough*
