Professor (Flitwick… probably): “Good afternoon class! Today we will be learning how to manipulate the elements. Before we begin, it is important to understand each element and how it relates to the others. Now who can tell me the 4 basic elements?”
Professor: “Very good. Now…”
Gryffindor: “Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”
Ravenclaw: “Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.”
*students: “what is happening?”*
Slytherin: “A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang.”
Hufflepuff: “And although his airbending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone.”
The 4 students in unison: “But I believe Aang can save the world.”
Professor: “Well done! You are the first group of students to recite it perfectly. I liked how all of you said the last line together. 10 points to each house. Simply wonderful.”
you are a child of sun. you are never still, you dance, dance, dance your way through life and love and people and baby, do you even remember what it’s like to stand still? you’ve never held someone’s hand without tapping your fingers on their knuckles; you’ve never kissed with your eyes closed and you can’t sleep in an embrace because it feels like a cage. you are a child of sun. bright, burning bright, brilliant. but baby, you need to understand that stillness isn’t death. and love does not love to be chased.
you are the one everyone counts on. you are the pillar, the calm one, the one who holds hands and offers shoulders and darling, have you ever held someone’s hand without it feeling like a burden? have you ever leaned on a shoulder? have you ever opened your eyes during a kiss? you think life is about reason and logic, but tell me - how do you measure the feeling inside your belly when you wake up next to the love of your life for the first time? how do you apply logic to love? tell me, how will you soar, if you refuse to fly?
you were born feet first and since then you’ve done things your way. you are the one wearing mismatched socks, the one whose keys are always lost, the one with 20 missed calls. your head is in the clouds, but baby, your feet have never touched the ground. it’s awfully lonely up there, inside your head. freedom must feel like a noose around your neck some days. the thing about having wings is - it makes it hard for people to give you a hug, it makes it hard for them to even keep up. you think you are weightless, but darling you are weight-of-the-world on your shoulders, no one to help you out - no human contact.
you are vastness. you are oceans and broken mountains and wildfires put to sleep. you are beautiful and magical and terrifying, so terrifying. you seem endless, you see, endless joy and sadness, and it’s so easy for them to drown in you, drown and disappear and baby - you wouldn’t even notice. you are your own world. your own battle. you change people in half and don’t see it as breaking. they fall asleep with a summer shower, and wake up next to a hurricane.
you speak german? OMG that's so cool say something!!
Wasser, Erde, Feuer, Luft. Vor langer Zeit lebten alle vier Nationen zusammen in Harmonie. Doch dann erklärte uns die Feuernation den Krieg und alles änderte sich. Nur der Avatar, Herr der 4 Elemente, hätte sie aufhalten können. Doch als die Welt ihn am meisten brauchte, verschwand er. Einhundert Jahre vergingen und mein Bruder und ich entdeckten den neuen Avatar, einen Luftbändiger namens Aang. Auch wenn er über enorme Fähigkeiten verfügt, er muss noch eine Menge lernen, bevor er jemandem helfen kann. Doch ich glaube daran, dass Aang diese Welt retten wird.
We have been living in reverse. Leaving the nipple in the shadows of our puritanical past. Censoring and blurring it out as thanks for the nourishment and pleasure it provides. One of society’s ways of shaming and silencing the feminine. Denying her as the erotically powerful being that she is. So we join forces in solidarity. We dare one another to step up and break free from taboo. We claim our rightful place amongst the Earth, Air, Fire, and Water as Free Women.
