Summary: The Avatar has always been one person, The Avatar can only be one person, the birth and rise of Soon and Asha: twin sisters who share a soul, changes everything.
A/N: I am posting these in the order that I wrote them. This means that they are NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. This is a side project and therefore it might never be complete. I don't plan on any of them (the stories) being very long at all. Each story is from the POV of one or both of the sisters.
It was rare that Asha and Soon were apart but here she was. Soon had gone off to explore the city with Roku and she was stuck pouring over Korra’s old documents with Korra’s granddaughter, who had told them later, her name was Naya. The two of them were shifting through the piles and piles of notes that previous Avatar had left for them. While Asha was glad that Korra had left notes it was becoming clear that Korra hadn’t been very organized as a person. Making sense of the way the notes were structured was almost impossible. Asha wanted to tear all the notes up. Naya sighed and leaned back and leaned against the wall of her small hut, “I miss them.”
Asha looked up at the woman, “Miss them?”
At that Naya laughed sadly, “Surely you must have heard? How in order to hold the bloodbenders back, how those from the old Avatar families marched on the camps, how horribly it ended.”
She had heard the stories, how after the previous Avatars death, how the bloodbenders had gotten slowly restless. How in order to hold them back until the newer Avatar could defeat them for good, the leaders had stuck out and driven them back, how they had almost all perished in the fight. Only a few remained. It made her feel like a coward. But then, she was still so angry at the world for trying to use her and her sisters like pawns. Like chess pieces. They were the Avatar, but they will still human, weren’t they?
“I’m sorry, we should have…”
Naya intrupted her, “You were not even born when it happened. The life of the Avatar is hard, my mother has told me the stories. You must not be down on yourself, I doubt your adventure has even begun.”
Asha wasn’t sure if that was meant to comfort her or not.
