  • So the harmonic convergence is weeks away... the once in 10 000 years event is happening a few years away and no one told Korra. When Aang gave her back her powers, he didn't think to mention:"So I have something very important to tell you that I've been trying to say for 16 years it has something to do with the avatar's mandatory participation in contest that decides the fate of the world, also it's in 7 months."

    Whats worst is apparently humans in the real world knew about it too, the fire sage told her only by the virtue that Korra randomly happened to wash up on the island. No one thought it would be a good idea to tell the avatar about the fate of the world battle was coming in her particular life time and only when she's a kid? So they wanted to keep the avatar safe but it's never occured to them "hmm the harmonic convergence will take place when the new avatar is only still 17 we'd better start making some big plans to prepare for it. Like informing the avatar's trainers."

    Aang had only a year to prepare for a fate-of-the-world-fight or it was end of the world and he came up on schedule just barely on time, Korra had at least ten years to prepare for a -fate-of-the-world-fight. The fire sages knew this and didn't tell anyone so that Korra can come out on schedule just on time, even though they could have prepared for it when Aang couldn't.

    Yeah wan only had a year but did fine, but still if you have time it's wise to use it and take no chances espeacially if its the fate of the world at stake. Also factoring the Vaatu could have been planning and growing in power. Also factoring from the battle sequences:

    Korra(with multilife-times powered avatarstate)<Dark spirit.

    Wan (With no previous life-time powered avatar state) >Vaatu(ruler of dark spirits)

    Seems like a good idea to inform and dedicate more of the avatar-responsible- for-fate-of-the-world time into preparing the for the battle, when time is an advantage many past avatars don't have.

    • Korra most likely told the Fire Sage off-screen about her vision, & said Fire Sage calculated when the next Harmonic Convergence was actually going to occur. If that's true, then it's completely reasonable to assume that Aang simply did not know. When the signs began brewing, that's when it probably started spreading down the chain of past lives. Of course, it was still too difficult to communicate with Korra, hence the magical water.

    • When such an event occurs every 10,000 years, the intervals are bound to be forgotten by most individuals. As Wan died before he could tell anyone (spirits included) about when the next HC would occur, it became very likely that the passage of time sealed away most knowledge of it. In other words, the knowledge of the impending HC is arcane.

    • Vaatu AND Raava seems to know exactly when it occurs precise to the second from what we've seen. So Raava didn't think to tell her current human half of the avatar spirit to prepare for the fight? Or plan for the contingency  of Aang instead of growing weak and dying at 66, die10 or more years later in which we would either have an old and weakened or under aged avatar being forced into the HC.

    • The Avatar's death isn't planned, so I'm not sure what you bring that up for. I have complained that the Raava character seems to have mysteriously disappeared, so I will give you that one.

    • The spirit remains, obviously, but I doubt Raava forged a relationship with successive avatars other than just enabling the Avatar State to be used.

    • Why did Korra have to find Raava anyway. Why didn't Raava talk to her?

        Loading editor
    • She was badly wounded after doing battle with that spirit. She needed to reestablish her connection with Raava to not only regain her memory, but ability to use the state, or she would die.

      But why not?

    • I still don't get what's happened to Raava over the centuries. Did she just fade out or is she too far in the back of the Avatar's history to actually talk to Korra.

    • I thought Raava was apart of every Avatar.

        Loading editor
    • As I've stated in other threads, as each successive Avatar was born, he/she had less and less knowledge of Raava, and eventually, the Avatar State was assumed to just be a spiritual ability unique to the Avatar. By reforging her connection to Raava, Korra was able to purge her condition and restore the state.

    • That's be weird to have Raava's voice in your head.

    • It seems to me that finding Raava again and the origin of the Avatar Spirit was similar to a system reboot of a mainframe computer.  Purge out the old unused non important memory and reboot a fresh system (from hard drive) into the avatar.  This is not the same Korra from the beginning of the show.  I like this one.  More confident in herself and her poweres.  She did the spirit cleansing perfectly and almost automatic.  Beautiful visual on the screen.

    • That was awesome!! But i'm a little confused about how the ancient airbenders were celtic/nordic. The stones definately look like stonehenge or runestones.

    • GUYS:

      we now know why aang died so young from being in the avatar state! i can't believe i just realized this: we know that having a spirit posess you for too long kills you, right? and that the avatar state is raava's presence shining through with the combination of all the past lives...so although aang and raava are merged, having her presence so strong for so long is what caused aang to die early!

    • Except that this doesn't happen to the Avatar, that was the whole point of the Harmonic Convergence bonding them forever. What the Avatar State DOES do is put a lot of strain on the user's body, as any extreme use of might will.

        Loading editor
    • right...but the strain is from the spirit half of the avatar being there. and 100 years of that strain killed aang.

      this might be more appropriate for the dynamics of the avatar thread, but in light of the search, here's something else i thought of:

      koh said something along the lines of "now you've come to me with a new face." so what i think happens is that when the avatar dies, he/she just gets a new face and mind and is sent off to be born again. the difference b/w that and instance of other people like ursa and ikem is that those people still have their old face underneath.

        Loading editor
    • also, the other people didn't die before getting a new face.

    • Can people please stop posting random "The Search" spoilers in every thread? It's only been a few days, some of the people who actually paid for the comic don't have it yet, & I certainly need more time to find a good virtual copy that I can actually read & isn't on YouTube.

      Anyway, I say again, the whole idea of the Harmonic Convergence fusing them was that Raava's spirit being inside of him was no longer harmful. Keep in mind, if he was in the Avatar State for so long, what was he also likely doing? Bending. 100 straight years of Bending the elements, even in a low level, trancelike state, certainly qualifies as "strain."

    • I bought The Search Part 3 from my local comic book store and I read it, but I won't post anything from there onto here. May still be too early to update the actual page.

    • I've tried YouTube before, it sucks. Even when I don't have it set on the low qualities that I need in order for it to load, there are several spots where the text is too blurred to read.

    • neo, let me know if/when you find it on a manga site - i've seen the youtube version, and it was nice, but the video format in general isn't great.

    • Yes, Korra does seem very uninformed, but I think it goes both ways (the avatar and spirituality). To be informed, you have to be spiritually open.

      Take for example, Yakone. Aang was trying to tell Korra about it for a long time, and sometimes trying very hard to do so. Korra just wasn't able to connect with Aang and receive the help she needed until her situation forced her to do so.

      Although, it was easier for Aang, but he still had to work at it and concentrate and meditate.

      Had Korra been more gifted spiritually, she would have definitely know about it earlier. Thats my take on how it works.

    • She connected to the Avatars at the end of book 1. The writers just reverted her backwards for convience?

    • So new content nullifies the point about preparing for the HC, but still... I agree it is a bit too convenient for none of here past lives to induce some type of vision about not opening the portals for Unalaq or that he was evil. And we know that past avatar spirits have the ability to know things the current one doesnt (roku warning aang about fire lord ozai using sozins comet when roku never met ozai).
