A/N (1/6/2012) - Ahoy there! Welcome! If you are finding this collection for the first time, please take a moment to read this note. In case you did not notice, I first started this collection in 2007 as a place to house all of my oneshots concerning Sokka. Later, it became a Tokka collection. I personally recommend skipping forward to at least chapter 8, as I did not really start to focus on Tokka until that point. The first half dozen are mostly silliness, which you are still more than welcome to read (I haven't deleted them because people still seem to enjoy them for some reason!). The latter half is still silly, but with just a tad more focus (and a lot more Tokka). Thank you for reading! :D

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Happy Reading!

Not Stupid

I'm not stupid, you know. Alright, I can be a little mean from time to time. I occasionally miss the point during conversation, and my judgment can be a little off, but I'm not stupid. I understand, for the most part, what people are trying to say to me. Just because I can't do magic like my little sister doesn't mean I'm stupid.

I mean really, I'm more like the brains of the operation, when it comes right down to it. If Katara and Aang couldn't do their silly magic, we'd be dead if it weren't for me. Then again, we wouldn't be here in the first place – in this war, I mean – if this magic didn't exist, so who's to blame here? Aang's just a kid, you know. You can't blame him for being the Avatar and you can't blame him for doing his magic tricks all the time. It's a matter of perspective.

And anyway, lots of the things that happen to me that one may consider to be 'stupid' are more like 'mishaps' in a way. As in, you don't need to be stupid to drink water from a cactus plant when you're dying of thirst in the desert, and you don't need to be stupid in order to trust your instincts from time to time. All that stuff is pure bad luck. Come to think of it, I have a bit of a bad luck streak – or a good luck streak, if you want to look at it from the 'we're not dead yet' perception. How did I, a simple warrior with a boomerang, come to be a part of all this magic and war and what have you? Bad luck, I call it.

Then again, I can't say that nothing good has come of this. On our little quest I have managed to discover many hidden talents that I possess, such as my adroitness at poetry and the ability to do a little dance I like to call "The Worm" (original name, no?). In addition, I've seen a whole lot more of the female race than I ever would have back at home. And, quite frankly, this is a rather nice change. You see, I've sort of discovered that the ladies dig me, no lie. They really do. And I'm not even being arrogant; since our trip began, I've kissed several very attractive women and have more waiting in line for a chance (though some of them tend to scare me a little). Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to hurt anybody here. I'm just living a day at a time.

So all in all, my life has changed considerably over the past months. Between discovering new things and becoming a better warrior, my love life has drastically taken a turn for the better. I mean come on, the Avatar hasn't even kissed a girl yet (and it had better stay that way, judging on the way he looks at my sister). So really, my luck is debatable.

Wait, no, let's not stray from the path here. I'm really just here to tell you one thing, and one thing only: I'm not stupid. If you don't really put much thought into it, I'm sure you'll agree, too. And if you don't agree then, well… you're really missing out on a goldmine of genius.


A/N: By the way, though this collection is marked as Complete, I may add something at any time.

Thanks for reading!
