Author has written 14 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Legend of Korra.
(I'm not sure how to credit the artist as I don't know who it is. I found this on FanPop listed as submitted by Madzi28xD.)
Thank you to all who have read my work and to those who have followed my stories and have waited more than patiently for updates.

“I write to find strength.
I write to become the person that hides inside me.
I write to light the way through the darkness for others.
I write to be seen and heard.
I write to be near those I love.
I write by accident, promptings, purposefully and anywhere there is paper.
I write because my heart speaks a different language that someone needs to hear.
I write past the embarrassment of exposure.
I write because hypocrisy doesn’t need answers, rather it needs questions to heal.
I write myself out of nightmares.
I write because I am nostalgic, romantic and demand happy endings.
I write to remember.
I write knowing conversations don’t always take place.
I write because speaking can’t be reread.
I write to sooth a mind that races.
I write because you can play on the page like a child left alone in the sand.
I write because my emotions belong to the moon; high tide, low tide.
I write knowing I will fall on my words, but no one will say it was for very long.
I write because I want to paint the world the way I see love should be.
I write to provide a legacy.
I write to make sense out of senselessness.
I write knowing I will be killed by my own words, stabbed by critics, crucified by both misunderstanding and understanding.
I write for the haters, the lovers, the lonely, the brokenhearted and the dreamers.
I write because one day someone will tell me that my emotions were not a waste of time.
I write because God loves stories.
I write because one day I will be gone, but what I believed and felt will live on.”
I am writing again for Breaking the Promise. It is slow going and there is still a good amount of story left to tell. And since I haven’t updated in – what has it been now? – two years or so, I don’t blame you for having forgotten what has transpired so far. So, here is a recap:Kuei and his Council of Five are preparing to march on Yu Dao. Sneers chose Kori over the Freedom Fighters. Smellershot is a go. The refugee Dai Li are tired of being on the run and are looking for a way out. Katara and Aang are with Iroh and members of the White Lotus in Ba Sing Se. Aang is meditating and going to speak with Avatar Roku. The Kyoshi Warriors, Sokka, Toph and Mai are incognito and making their way to Zuko via air balloon. And, Zuko still has to meet with his Military Council (the former War Council) and commit to a plan of action.
Last updated in March. Still working on the next chapter. Still no closer to the "war council" meeting. BUT the chapter took me back to familiar characters and those not fond of original characters (which were featured in the last two chapters) will probably like it better. Now all I have to do is finish it. Once done, I'll post it.
