Oh man, now I really want a story that satires the Solka-gives-Aang-the-talk trope wherein he tries, but then Aang has to end up teaching him... Lol

This is wonderful! I think it's really funny when adults seem to think 12 year olds are in the dark about sex 'n' stuff. Especially in this day and age.
Of course my mom was the the type of parent that didn't bother with the Stork stories or even "When a mommy and daddy love each they can make a baby, the end." Nope, not my mom, if you asked about sex or where babies come from, she'd pulled out a medical textbook with diagrams, pictures and all. I was 7. So I was usually the one corrupting my friends, who all got the vague, magicbaby, versions. ;)
Thanks for sharing this!

Yup. That's preeeeetty much the story. I'm always amused when people assume that Aang, teenage boy and world traveler extraordinaire, is naive and ignorant in the ways of love. (But of course Katara, whose entire body of interaction with boys prior to meeting Aang was with her BROTHER, and who never left her hometown in her entire life until an airbender swept her away on his sky bison, and Zuko, who was the sheltered prince until daddy banished him at which point he led a profoundly asexual existence on a boat, are both masters of inter-gender interaction...) Oh fandom, y u so silly?

haha it was a fun story...but then then it ended with an AWWWWWW _
| Lunatique chapter 1 . 5/23/2012
Hilarious and heartwarming. I wonder if the people who think Aang is this total innocent even remember what it was like to be an adolescent caught between the chaotic impulses of childhood and the unfamiliar desires of puberty. The boys' conversation reflects that dynamic well, including the inclusion of different sexualities, and it all had a bittersweet feel because we know what happens to them. Nice portrayal of kids being kids, who are NOT the same as the sentimental ideals of childhood constructed by adults.

Ahahahahaha! XD "You broke him." and "The most enlightning conversation you'll ever have, buddy" Ahahahaha! XD I'm never gonna forget those two lines.

Hm...as the Avatar he has lived a thousand lives, hasn't he? So, I guess he has to be quite knowledgeable...

This is so, SO true, and that "age of innocence" is getting younger and younger. I've worked at camps for some time, and all you need to do is appear to not be paying any attention for talks like this to start right up.
| bloocheeze chapter 1 . 5/11/2011
omg cryinggggg. I can totally see Sokka being all ~this is how sex works~ and Aang just like, mentally face-palming.
this is perfect, okay, perfect!
| tsujigiri chapter 1 . 3/17/2011
So very impressed with this being a) in character (both for Aang and many 12-15 year old boys), b) damn funny and c) enlightened without being the least preachy!
| Infame chapter 1 . 12/9/2010
I love, love, loved this. It was great!
You write extremely well! And Aang was really well characterized. The story was adorable, and I loved all the characters. I would tell you what lines I loved, but there were too many to count!
I looooved that you included all the "Is that love itself is blind. Gender and that sort of crap don't matter if you love someone. Grow up, you idiots." stuff.
Thank you for posting! :)

"Some sort of burn, anyway," my favorite line lol. Great story :)
