sister magic

anonymous asked:

Who do you think is the bravest avatar character?

This is extremely hard and I hate you. 

Off the very tip-top of my head, I say Zuko. I will admit, I am partially biased towards him as he is my sweet fire son, but at the same time, he did commit treason and leave behind all normalcy to help Aang and Company. 

Then, I was going to say Katara. She found Aang, fought Pakku, traveled the fucking world over, got herself imprisoned, took out a crazy waterbender, posed as a spirit, befriended the Fire Nation prince, and defeated the Fire Nation princess. I mean… that takes a lot of courage. 

But, you know what else takes courage? Leaving your tribe behind, leaving your post as protecter behind, and following your ‘magic’ sister and her ‘magic’ friend on a journey that started because of a random twist of fate. It takes courage to see your faults, to admit your weaknesses, to fight for something you’re scared to believe it (i.e. magic water and such) and overcome it all. 

So, I’m going to say Sokka. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

Venus and Serena Williams just made tennis history … again

  • Venus and Serena Williams are the oldest women to compete at the Australian Open for the Grand Slam final in the modern tennis era.
