Here it is. The epilogue. It's very short, but it kind of wraps things up a little I think. Mindless fluff, by the way.

Just remember, each happy ending is a brand new beginning.

"Aang! Hey, Aang!"

The young Avatar stopped earthbending and looked over. Katara was racing toward him, a scroll in her hand and a smile on her face. The two of them had been living together at the Southern Air Temple for nearly a year while Aang used all of his bending prowess to repair the ruined sanctuary. So far, he had done a lovely job. Every day, the temple became more like a home for the young lovers.

Aang grinned and caught her around the waist, spinning her in a quick circle and kissing her by way of greeting. She laughed, grabbing his shoulders to steady herself.

"What's up?" he asked, wiping his sweaty forehead. He had been doing some strenuous earthbending. She grinned.

"We just got a messenger hawk," she replied. "We've been invited to a wedding."

Aang quirked an eyebrow at her in surprise. "By who?"

"Dodger and Robin. They're getting married!"

Aang laughed. "Wow, we haven't seen them in…"

"Three years," Katara finished for him. "Since we helped them escape the Shadow. But that's exactly where they're going."


"They're getting married on the Raven's Shadow."

Aang laughed again, shaking his head. "Life is funny sometimes."

"Especially our life," Katara sighed, though she couldn't keep the smile from her face.

He pulled her into a kiss. "I love it when you say that," he murmured against her lips.

"When I say what?" she laughed.

"Our life."

"Yeah, I like it too."

"So do you think we should go?"

Katara pulled back and looked at him thoughtfully, settling herself more comfortably in his arms. "I think we should," she said with a smile. "It'll be nice to see the crew again, even though they were trying to kill me the last time we saw them."

Aang laughed lightly. "Very true. Besides, we never really got a chance to thank them," he pointed out. "Without those pirates, it would have taken me a lot longer to take some initiative."

"How much longer?" she asked slyly, smirking and tugging him a little closer.

"Well… maybe not that much," Aang admitted with a grin. "You're kind of hard to resist."

"Good to know."

"So when is it?"

"We have to get to Port Zian in three weeks."

"Oh good, we can visit Kwei and his kids!"

Katara smiled indulgently, nodding. "So does this mean we'll have to invite a load of pirates to our wedding?"

"Would that be such a bad thing?" Aang asked, grinning. "They would make things more exciting."

Katara closed her eyes and rested her head on his shoulder, laughing lightly. "I love you," she sighed.

"I love you too," he replied with a smile.

"You know what it means if we go to this wedding," Katara asked suddenly, the mischief obvious in everything from her voice to her smile.

"What?" he asked, smirking.

"We get to be pirates again."

Aang grinned, spinning her around again and pinning her against the wall behind her. "Us, outlaws?" he asked lowly, their breath mingling as he leaned closer. "I look forward to it."

She pulled him in the last few inches, murmuring, "Me too."
