“We’re family. All of us. If we break apart, we have nothing left.”
After my last drawing of Kya, I got to wondering why their family stayed in the South pole in the first place. Katara’s waterbending posed a threat not only to them, but to the entire tribe. I chalked it up as kind of an act of defiance stemming from how much the water tribes valued community.

Avatar Aang asks his friends to help him honor Yangchen’s Festival - one of the highest Air Nomad holidays, which hasn’t been celebrated in over one hundred years. But cryptic visits from the spirit of Avatar Yangchen herself lead Aang to discover a jointly owned Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom refinery - operating on land sacred to the Airbenders! Is this the cause of the pollution Aang finds there or is something more mysterious happening?
omg could it be? This looks like it actually might be really good! These 8 pages have got me mega excited!
