The Heartless threat continued to escalate. Under the command of a mysterious man who calls himself Ansem, the Heartless penetrated many worlds, draining them of their essence. The threat soon spread to worlds that not even the Great Wizard, himself knew still existed. 1 such world was at war with a particularly different enemy. The Heartless soon open a rift and reign terror on many of the inhabitants. The heroes of that world were powerless to stop them and the deterioration process would soon commence. In the time of great need, Naminé called out to send the Benders in order to end the threat.

“You must send the Benders; they are the only ones who can save that world.”

However, they were busy on another mission. At that time, Fox and his friends were sent out to fight the Heartless for as long as they could. Upon the benders' arrival, they teamed up with the heroes of that world. Together, they aim to end the Heartless threat by permanently sealing all the Keyholes to ensure that the threat could no longer penetrate  that world and endanger its very existence, anymore.

Naminé: “You must send the Benders; they are the only ones who can save that world! There’s not much time! You have to trust me; send the Benders!”

Inside the dimension, a unique group of warriors known as the Jedi fought the best they could against the Heartless. But their efforts were in vain and they realized this. But it did not matter to them, for they were the only ones who are able to fight them and they are willing to risk everything to protect their world from the Heartless threat.

Within the dimension, 1 such Heartless battle occurred on a crystalline planet known as Christophsis. 3 well known Jedi, Obi-wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, fought in vain against the Heartless, exhausted from the battle. Ahsoka: “Master, it’s no use; we can’t even penetrate these creatures!” Anakin: “It doesn’t matter! We have to keep fighting, no matter the cost!” Obi-wan: “I’m afraid she’s right, Anakin! We’re no match against these things; our Lightsabers are useless against them!” Anakin: “Great! We don’t know what they are, we don’t know where they came from, we don’t know why they’re here and we don’t even know how to defeat them!” Ahsoka: “We manage to get by just by pushing them back with the Force. But I don’t think we can keep doing this forever.” Anakin: “Well, what else can we do?”

The Heartless soon broke free from the Jedi’s influence over the Force and came after them. Obi-wan: “It’s going to take a miracle to scratch these things, let alone destroy them.”

Just then, a bright flash of light appeared right in front of them. Before long, Fox and his friends arrived on the scene. The Jedi stood spellbound by their sudden arrival. Fox: “Let us handle this.”

Fox and his friends soon pulled out key-like weapons known as Keyblades and charged towards the Heartless and, with 1 fell swoop of their weapons, eradicated every Heartless they came across. The Jedi were stunted by what they were seeing. Ahsoka: “I…I don’t believe it.” Anakin: “What is…happening?” Obi-wan: “Hm...it seems as though these warriors are penetrating the creatures in levels that we couldn’t reach.” Anakin: “How is this even possible?” Obi-wan: “I’m not really sure...although...I believe it has something to do with those weapons they're wielding.”

They continued watching them fight off the Heartless. Ahsoka: “Are these guys…on our side?” Anakin: “I would consider it a safe bet. They are fighting off these…creatures, after all.” Obi-wan: “Yes, or so it seems, but we don’t even know who they are or where they came from, but they are helping us at the moment.” Anakin: “Well, I’m not complaining.”

At that time, Fox and his friends kept fighting against the Heartless. Misty: “Grr…how long do we have to keep fighting these things?” Fox: “As long as we need to; until the benders finish up with their mission.” Krystal: “I sure hope so, we may be the most powerful members of our group but even we can’t fight off an entire army.” Falco: “No kidding, I ain’t going down like this; not when we have lots more worlds to attend to.” Fox: “Quit you’re squabbling and keep fighting!”

Just then, Ahsoka noticed something in the distance. Ahsoka: “Uh…master?”

Anakin and Obi-wan looked over and noticed it, too. Anakin: “Oh, no, this can’t be good.” Ahsoka: “Um…excuse me, I don’t mean to interrupt your important battle, but we have a situation.”

They looked towards 1 side and saw at least 2 giant Heartless at a distance. They looked towards the other side and saw another set of 2 giant Heartless. Fox: “Oh, great, just what we need!”

They looked back towards the other Heartless, they were still other Heartless that they needed to fight off. Misty: “It’s no use, Fox, we can’t keep doing this. Those things could speed up the deterioration process in this world immediately after it commences.” Fox: “I know, but we can’t leave these unattended.”

Just then, they noticed that the Heartless stopped on their tracks. Fox: “Huh?”

They looked back and noticed that the Jedi are somehow holding them back. Fox: “What are you guys doing?” Ahsoka: “Go! We’ll hold these off as long as we can!” Misty: “Wait, how are you…?” Anakin: “Don’t worry about that, just go!” Obi-wan: “Hurry, I don’t know how long we can keep this up!”

They hesitated for a brief moment. Fox: “Right, let’s go, while we still have a chance.”

They leapt up and rush off after the giant Heartless.

As they fought off the giant Heartless, the Jedi struggle to hold back the other Heartless with their Force powers. Fox: “Richie, when will the benders get here?” Voice: “They’ll be arriving back soon. They’re just finishing up with their mission.” Fox: “For our sake, they had better be here.” Voice: “Don’t worry, I already told them to hurry back as fast as they can.” Fox: “That’s not good enough. We’re all in serious trouble if they don’t arrive here. My friends and I can’t keep this up forever.” Voice: “I’m doing everything I can. What more do you want?” Fox: “At the moment, what I want is to eradicate the Heartless before they eradicate us along with this world.”

They continued fighting off the giant Heartless. Fox and his friends managed to destroy all of them. Just then, more Heartless show up; they overpowered the Jedi. Fox and his friends were about to rush back, but then, more giant Heartless show up. Fox: “You’ve got to be kidding! How are we suppose to fight off all of these Heartless!?!” Voice: “Fox, are you there?” Fox: “You better have some good news for me, Richie!” Voice: “I have. The benders have just returned from their mission; I’m sending them over as we speak.” Fox: “Really? That’s great! It’s about time those kids got back!” Voice: “Unfortunately, there’s just 1 small problem: it’s…not working” Fox: “What!?! What do you mean!?!” Voice: “The transfer device is incompatible to that world. We can’t transfer them over, not completely. Fox, I need you and the others to open a portal in that world.” Fox: “What? You’ve got to be kidding me!” Voice: “Believe me, I wish I was. Please, hurry, Fox. Those benders are going to be trapped between dimensions!” Fox: “Alright, calm down. I’ll take care of it. Guys, listen up, we need to bring our Keyblades together and open a gateway between this world and the other side.” Misty: “What?” Krystal: “No way!” Falco: “You’ve got to be kidding me! We don’t have time for any of that! There are Heartless everywhere!” Fox: “I know that, but the transfer is too weak to send others to this particular dimension.  Come on, guys, we have to do this!” Falco: “Uh! Fine, but let’s make this quick!”

Fox and his friends rushed off.

They reappeared in front of the Jedi. Ahsoka: “What are you doing!?! Those creatures are running rampant here!”

Fox and his friends held up their Keyblades and shot out a stream of energy towards a direct point, creating an orb of light. The orb then formed a large block-like containment field. From within that field, the 4 benders, Katara, Aang, Zuko and Toph arrived as well as their 2 warrior friends, Sokka and Suki. The Jedi were stunted by what they saw. Fox and his friends rushed off and disappeared, the benders kids pulled out their Keyblades and began fighting the Heartless. The Jedi watched as the benders fought off the Heartless. Nearby, Misty was fighting one of the giant Heartless, using her water abilities, some of the water splashed all over the place. Katara ran near some of the water and bend it towards the Heartless. The Jedi were shocked from watching. Toph Earthbend some of the crystalline from the ground and struck most of the Heartless. Spellbound, The Jedi continued watching the benders fought, they observed as Zuko shot out a few fire balls from his fists. Just then, Ahsoka looked up and saw Aang fly around using 2 Keyblades, then put them both away and created cyclones from his hands directly towards several airborne Heartless. Anakin: “Who are these kids?”

Obi-wan began to ponder. Obi-wan: “They seem like very extraordinary, young people.” Ahsoka: “Well, at least they’re fighting against those creatures, so they are on our side, I guess.”

The benders quickly reunited with Fox and his friends. Fox: “It’s about time you guys got here!” Katara: “Sorry, we got held up during our last mission.” Aang: “Is there anything you need us to do?” Fox: “Well, for starters, fight off as many of these Heartless as you can.” Misty: “You also need to protect those people over there.”

They looked over and spotted the Jedi. Zuko: “Who are those guys?” Fox: “They’re called Jedi. They’re the protectors of this world.” Suki: “We kind of knew that. Richie has been doing some serious research on this place.” Sokka: “Wait, we need to fight off all the Heartless while protecting them? Seriously? That’s way too much for us to handle!” Falco: “Just do it!” Krystal: “Their weapons and abilities are completely useless against defeating these creatures.” Katara: “We’ll do everything we can.” Fox: “The rest of us need to take care of the giant enemies. Now go! Get those Heartless!”

Fox and his friends rushed off. Toph: “You heard Captain Terris, let’s get 'em!”

They continued fighting off the Heartless. Ahsoka: “Master, what was it he called those things? Heartless?”

As the benders continued fighting off the Heartless, some of them struggled to keep them away from the Jedi. Many of the creatures crept up on them before they had a chance to attack. At one point, Toph jumped in the middle of them, pulled a few rocks from the ground with her Earthbending and pushed the Heartless out of the way. Toph: “Are you guys going to stand there like a bunch of helpless idiots or are you going to do something?”

She jumped out, more Heartless came at the benders one by one; they seem overwhelmed by the massive hoards. Just then, the Heartless appeared to be dazed and confused. They looked over and saw that the Jedi were holding their hands out, using their Force powers. The benders looked back and forth at the Heartless and the Jedi, also confused. Ahsoka: “We’re not as helpless as you think.” Katara: “What are you…how are you…nice going.” Toph: “Say, can you bring them closer to us?” Anakin: “Are you out of your mind?” Toph: “Just trust me!”

They then pulled all of the Heartless closer to them. They each slashed the Heartless, decimating all of them. Obi-wan: “Oh, I get it. Make those creatures an easy target. Very clever!”

They ran over to the Jedi and surrounded them. Katara: “Thanks for the assist.” Ahsoka: “Thank you for trying to save us.” Katara: “Listen, we don’t know each other very well but if you could help us in defeating this threat, we would appreciate that very much.” Ahsoka: “Sure, just tell us what we need to do.” Zuko: “We know that you’re powerless against the Heartless, but it seems that you can affect them somehow and that counts for something.” Aang: “You think you can keep doing it?” Anakin: “Just try to stop us.”

At that point, the Jedi and the benders joined forces in defeating all of the Heartless. They spent some time working together in fighting off and eradicating a lot of the Heartless in a way that made the fight seem almost easy. After a long period of time, they managed to finish the job. Katara: “Well, that’s that. Now, let’s go help our captains in defeating the other…huh?”

They looked up and saw another giant Heartless show up. Sokka: “Aw, man, come on! Not another giant Heartless!” Katara: “Captain Terris and the others are still busy with those other Heartless; it up to us. It’ll take everything we’ve got to take down this one.” Anakin: “We’re here for you guys, no matter what!” Toph: “OK, then, enough talk, time to bring down this powerhouse Heartless.”

And so began their first epic battle together. It took a lot of effort and a lot of teamwork, but they were able to defeat the massive Heartless together.

Fox and his friends just finished up with their battle against the other giant Heartless. They quickly reunited with the others. Ahsoka: “Thanks again for helping us. Who are you guys and where did you come from?” Fox: “We’re fighters from other worlds. We were sent here to vanquish the threat that’s been causing a great deal of turmoil in yours.” Obi-wan: “So you are here to help us against those creatures? What was it you called them?” Anakin: “Heartless. You called those creatures Heartless, didn’t you?”

They nodded. Obi-wan: “Heartless? What sort of creatures are they?” Katara: “They are creatures capable of opening rifts between dimensions. The more they’re in a particular dimension, the more damage they can cause to it. Our worlds are already at the brink of deterioration because of these things.” Ahsoka: “That’s terrible!” Fox: “Yes, but we have a friend that placed all of our worlds in a stasis until we can reverse the process.” Obi-wan: “What about our world? How well do you think it’s holding up?” Fox: “The deterioration  process hasn’t commenced, not yet, but we’re hoping to terminate the threat before even it gets to that point.” Ahsoka: “But wait a minute, where are these creatures coming from? And why are they doing this?” Fox: “It’s a long story. We still have a lot to talk about.” Obi-wan: “Yes, of course. We can do all of that on our way back to Coruscant.” Suki: “Coruscant? Where’s that?” Ahsoka: “Not too far; a couple thousand light-years away to be exact.” Aang: “What? I don’t get it.” Misty: “It’s on another planet, isn’t it?” Ahsoka: “No, it IS another planet.” Sokka: “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait! Another planet? You mean…different from this one?” Ahsoka: “Of course. What were you expecting?” Sokka: “How many planets are there?” Obi-wan: “Quite a lot, actually; it is a big galaxy, after all.” Sokka: “Whoa, hey, check this out, these guys are capable of space travel here, too!” Fox: “We know.” Anakin: “Yeah, great. Let’s just go already. I’m tired of standing here and talking.” Katara: “OK, let’s go, then.”
          
They were soon on a ship heading towards Coruscant. Inside, they sat down together and talked. Anakin: “So, let me see if I got this straight: these Heartless were created by this guy who calls himself “Ansem” and he’s using these creatures to destroy all of our worlds? What does he hope to accomplish?” Fox: “We’re not sure. We believe him to be another Dark Wielder. All we know is that he was able to accomplish was he has done so far by creating a power source known as Kingdom Hearts.” Ahsoka: “Kingdom Hearts? What is that?” Krystal: “It is a unique power source that was suppose to be a thing of pure fiction. It is described as “many hearts united as one”.” Ahsoka: “So, someone manage to pull something out of pure fiction and now he’s using it to destroy everything?” Fox: “Yes.” Anakin: “But who is this guy? How is it he is able to do all of this?” Katara: “No one knows for sure. Although, we know that Ansem isn’t even his real name.” Obi-wan: “So, the bad guy is hiding behind a fake name. How come?” Fox: “To protect himself. It’s a safeguard spell. We have faced a number of enemies who hide their real names to mask themselves so that we can’t get to them. Even if we are able to find him, we can’t even scratch him until we figure out his true identity.” Ahsoka: “So, until you’re able to find what his real name is, he’s pretty much impenetrable.” Misty: “Yes and we’re no closer to finding that anytime soon. At the moment, what we need to focus on is ending the Heartless threat in this world.” Anakin: “How are we going to do that?” Misty: “By finding all of the keyholes, of course.” Anakin: “Keyholes?” Falco: “The Heartless are able to enter this world and many other worlds through keyholes hidden throughout the dimensions. Judging by the size of this place, there’s probably a lot of those here.” Katara: “And we’re going to need to seal all of them.” Ahsoka: “All of them!?! Do you even know how long that could take you!?! This isn’t exactly some backyard scavenger hunt.” Obi-wan: “She’s right, this is a big galaxy. You could be here for years.” Fox: “We know, but we have ways of speeding up the process. It’s hard to explain, but you have to trust us.” Obi-wan: “I don’t think we have a choice in the matter.” Anakin: “So, these…Heartless are more than capable of entering our dimension through rifts that they’ve created. That must mean that they can penetrate any area they want in our world.” Obi-wan: “If that’s the case, then that means they can penetrate our most heavily populated areas, even our most secured areas with ease.” Fox: “That’s not good. The Heartless collect the hearts of any bystanders they come across.” Ahsoka: “What? Why?” Krystal: “As their names imply about them, they are creatures who lack hearts of their own. So, they go around collecting hearts from others. But their presence alone is more than enough to disrupt the balance of each world.” Ahsoka: “Oh, no! That’s terrible!” Anakin: “And this Ansem guy just lets them roam around freely, just like that?” Fox: “Yes, it’s how he was able to create Kingdom Hearts.” Ahsoka: “All hearts unite as one. It all makes sense, Master.” Anakin: “Yes, that it does.” Fox: “We’re hoping to capture Kingdom Hearts and use it to restore all of our worlds. But until then, we need to neutralize the Heartless threat before they deteriorate any more worlds.” Anakin: “This is more serious than we could have ever imagined.”

They arrived on Coruscant. Aang looked directly at the planet through the window. Aang: “Is that…Coruscant?” Ahsoka: “Yep, that’s it.” Aang: “Whoa, it looks like a city covering the entire planet.” Anakin: “That’s because Coruscant is known as the “city planet”.” Aang: “No way! The entire planet is a city?” Anakin: “Yes.” Katara: “What? That’s completely insane! Is that even good for the planet?” Anakin: “Well, it is thriving, is it not?”

Aang stared down at the entire planet.

They eventually landed on the planet. They stepped out of the shuttle and on to a floating platform. Toph: “Hey, where is this city? Is this all there is?” Ahsoka: “Um…no, we’re on a floating platform.” Sokka: “A floating…platform. THIS IS AWESOME!!!” Anakin: “Oh, brother.”

They got on a bus and rode off. After a short period of time, they landed on one of the buildings. Toph: “Oh! Now I see the city! Whoa! This place is huge! Also, I‘ve never felt so much metal before! This is amazing!!” Ahsoka: “Huh, what a strange little person.”

They kept walking until they approached one of the building's entrances. When Sokka stood near the entrance, he stood in awe as the door opened automatically. Sokka: “Whoa…hey, guys, check this out! The doors open by themselves here, too!”

The rest of the benders stood in front of the door and watched in awe. Everyone else stood and stared, some in much discontent, namely Anakin. Anakin: “I take it they don’t have automatic doors where they come from.” Fox: “No, the technology in their world is very…primitive.” Obi-wan: “Hm, what an odd group of kids.”

Anakin eventually became annoyed by their constant staring. Anakin: “Yeah, great! The door opens by themselves! Can we just go? We’re losing daylight!”

The Jedi stepped in, as did Fox and his friends and the rest of the benders and Sokka and Suki. As they walked inside, the door closed behind them. Sokka stopped and looked back. Sokka: “That is so cool!”

Anakin walked back, grabbed on to him and pulled him further in.

They arrived in one of the rooms of the building. Inside, the benders, the Jedi and Fox and his friends stood separately from one another. Soon enough, Padme stepped in. Padme: “Hello, guys, I didn’t expect to see you again, so soon.”

It didn’t take her long to realize that there were others in the room. Padme: “Oh, I didn’t know you were…bringing friends.” Ahsoka: “These guys saved us from a…difficult battle on Christophsis.” Padme: “Oh, really? That’s nice.” Ahsoka: “That’s not all. They’re here to help us fight against those creatures that have been attacking us. They call them Heartless.” Padme: “Heartless, huh? Well, I guess, in that case, I wish to express my gratitude for your help. I hope you rid the galaxy of those horrible creatures.” Katara: “Sure, that’s what we intend to do.” Fox: “OK, I think we’ve overstayed our welcome here. We have to get back to taking care of our other obligations.” Ahsoka: “What? You’re leaving? But we could really use your help, guys.” Fox: “Sorry, but we can’t stay here.” Krystal: “We still have many other things that require our attention.” Falco: “A captain’s job is never done.” Misty: “We promise we’ll come back and help whenever we can.” Fox: “We leave everything in the hands of these kids. I’m counting on you guys. Protect this world and don’t let anything happen to it.”

Another portal opened, Fox and his friends soon faded into it and they were gone.

Everyone then stood silent in the room. Ahsoka: “So, it looks like we're stuck with you guys, huh?” Katara: “Yes, it appears that way.” Ahsoka: “By the way, we never had the chance to introduce each other, if you’re going to stay here, we should at least know each of your names.” Katara: “Fair enough. I’m Katara, this Aang, Zuko, Toph, Suki and my brother, Sokka.” Sokka: “Hey.” Aang: “Hi.” Suki: “Hello there.” Toph: “Whazzup?” Zuko: “Hello.” Ahsoka: “I’m Ahsoka Tano, this is my master, Anakin Skywalker and this is Master Obi-wan Kenobi.”

Padme slowly approached Katara. Padme: “And I’m Senator Padme Amidala. Nice to meet you.”

She shook Katara’s hand. Padme: “So, you guys are from another world, huh? I’d love to hear all about it.” Obi-wan: “As do I, you have some remarkable abilities that I’ve never even seen before. How is it you were able to do what you just did?” Katara: “Well, it really is a lot easier if you guys can understand our culture. For starters, our world is split into 4 nations: the Water Tribe, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation and the Air Nomads. Each nation consists of a unique group of individuals with the ability to control and manipulate each of the 4 elements. They are known as benders, the type of bender they are depends on what element they can wield. You can obviously tell what type of benders me and my friends are.” Anakin: “So, what you’re telling us is all that stuff you guys did, it’s actually typical where you come from.” Katara: “Yes.”

Obi-wan indeed seemed intrigued. Obi-wan: “Fascinating.” Ahsoka: “We actually have people here with unique abilities of their own.” Katara: “I kind of figured, you guys call yourselves Jedi, right?” Ahsoka: “That’s right, myself, Master Skywalker and Master Kenobi are among a few of them. We’re capable of this amazing ability to control this mystical energy known as the Force.” Sokka: “The Force? You mean like what you guys did with all those Heartless?” Ahsoka: “Yes, that. Jedi are chosen when younglings possess abilities like that. They are then taken from their homes by a Jedi master then trained to hone that ability and put it to good use. We’re guardians and protectors our world and it’s our job to maintain balance within it.” Aang: “Hey! These people sound like me!” Katara: “Right, Aang. You see, there is also 1 person born with the ability to control and manipulate all 4 elements. He is known as the Avatar, he is the most powerful bender to ever exist and it’s his job to maintain balance within our world.” Ahsoka: “Sounds neat.” Anakin: “So, let me see if I got this right: just because someone has the ability to control all 4 elements, or bend them, as you call it, that automatically makes him the protector of your world?” Obi-wan: “I take it that doesn’t happen often whenever someone like that comes around, so I’m guessing this person is very special.” Katara: “He’s more than just that; the Avatar is actually the spirit of our world manifested in the form of a human being. He's also known as the bridge between our world and the spirit world and when the Avatar dies, he is then reincarnated into the next nation in the Avatar Cycle. This time, the Avatar is born as an Air Nomad.” Aang: “The last Avatar before me was a Firebender named Roku and before him was a female Earthbender named Kyoshi.” Suki: “I know of her all too well.” Ahsoka: “So, this Avatar Cycle goes in a complete circle, right?”

Katara and Aang nodded. Ahsoka: “Then that means that the next Avatar after Aang will be born in the Water Tribe.” Katara: “Exactly!” Ahsoka: “Now I seem to be getting the hang of this!” Padme: “Sounds as though we could use the Avatar’s help now.”

Padme walked up to a window and looked out from it for a bit. Katara and the rest stared at her, they seemed a little concerned. She then turned around and faced them again. Padme: “We are currently at war here. Unlike your world, ours is split by 2 completely different sides: there’s the Republic, which is what we’re part of. And then there are the Separatists, who are our enemies.” Obi-wan: “The Jedi are taking part in this war and we are doing everything we can to put a stop to it, but it’s…not enough.” Padme: “I, of course, am doing whatever I can to try and end this through diplomacy, but it’s difficult because not many people are interested in negotiations and prefer to fight in this war head on. And so, the war keeps pushing on and I’m not sure if there is any end in sight.”

Katara paused for a minute. Katara: “That’s too bad. There was a terrible war that went on back at home that we were part of.” Zuko: “More than a century ago, my great grandfather, Firelord Sozin, unleashed a devastating assault on the other nations and planned to take everything in name of the Fire Nation. It was his way of sharing his greatness with the world.” Ahsoka: “So, the Fire Nation were like the Separatists of your world.” Zuko: “Yes, we have caused a great deal of destruction to the world, but what we were doing to everyone was far worse.” Aang: “My entire people were slaughtered. I’m the only one of my kind left.”

Katara turned away from the Jedi and faced her friends. Katara: “Firebenders raided my tribe in the South Pole and stole all of our Waterbenders.”

She held her head down and touched her necklace. Katara: “Sokka and I lost our mother during one of those raids.”

Anakin became startled. Padme: “I’m so sorry to hear that.” Sokka: “The war was so immensely bad that it pretty much went from the Fire Nation versus the other nations, to the Fire Nation versus the Earth Kingdom and might I add that the Earth Kingdom was losing badly?” Toph: “Yeah, we weren’t doing so well, at all.” Sokka: “My dad was fed up with sitting around and doing nothing, so he and the men from our tribe decided to leave and help the Earth Kingdom fight in the war.” Ahsoka: “How long did this war of yours last?” Katara: “100 years.” Padme: “100 year!?! I can’t imagine being at war that long!!” Obi-wan: “Sounds as though you kids had it rough.”

The benders stood silent for a while. Anakin: “So, where was the great and mighty Avatar when all of this was happening?” Aang: “I was frozen in an iceberg.” Ahsoka: “Really? For how long?” Aang: “100 years.” Obi-wan: “Hm…isn’t that exactly how long your war lasted?”

Aang held his head down sulking. Ahsoka: “Hold on! That means…your more than 100 years old!?!” Aang: “Yes…” Ahsoka: “I…don’t believe it! You’re…still so young.” Obi-wan: “So, you were in a state of Cryo-Stasis.” Katara: “Yes, Captain Terris and the other captains told us that, too.” Anakin: “It also means that this terrible war of your world hardly began before then.” Ahsoka: “I don’t get it, how could all of this have happened?” Aang: “It started when the monks of my temple told me that I was the Avatar. It is usually a tradition for the Avatar’s identity to be revealed after his 16th birthday. The monks told me when I was only 12.” Obi-wan: “So, they revealed your identity much earlier than traditionally. Why?” Aang: “It was because they needed me prepared for the upcoming war with the Fire Nation.” Anakin: “So, they were in desperate need of the Avatar’s help.” Aang: “Yes, but…everything around me began to change. Everyone stopped seeing me as a normal kid, so I was being treated differently by everyone, well…everyone except my mentor and long time friend, Monk Gyasto. He was the only one who still made me felt like…me, that was…until…the monks decided to separate us.” Padme: “What? That’s terrible!” Ahsoka: “No, I can’t believe it!” Aang: “They were going to take away everything that I ever cared about! I was stuck in a corner and there was nowhere else for me to turn!” Ahsoka: “So, what did you do?” Aang: “The only thing I could do…I ran away from home. I flew off on Appa.” Ahsoka: “Appa?” Aang: “My pet flying bison. All Air Nomads have one. It’s how we get around.” Anakin: “Heh! Right, flying Bison. I find that hard to believe.”

Aang pulled out his Keyblade, with 1 gleam of the weapon, Appa suddenly appeared from outside the window. He flew towards them, letting out a big roar as he flew upward and disappeared. Ahsoka: “Whoa! He’s huge!” Obi-wan: “I take it that’s Appa.”

Aang nodded. Anakin: “OK, I’m convinced. So, how did you end up getting frozen in an iceberg?” Aang: “That day, Appa and I got caught in a storm as we flew above a large ocean. We fell into the water, barely hanging on, then I formed this huge sphere around us and…we were frozen inside of it…together.” Katara: “100 years later, Sokka and I found him and Appa frozen inside that iceberg. I didn’t even know that he was the Avatar at the time.” Sokka: “After that, we began to leave our cozy little home in the South Pole and we traveled the world together.” Aang: “Katara and Sokka are really good friends. I don’t where I would be without them.” Anakin: “Probably still frozen in that iceberg…with your…uh…” Ahsoka: “Flying bison, master.” Anakin: “Uh…right.” Obi-wan: “Still, I find that story incredible and very hard to believe.”

Aang started to sulk again. Ahsoka: “But then you suffered a great loss when you found out that Monk Gyasto and the other Airbenders were slaughtered.”

He held his head down. Ahsoka and Padme looked at each other. Padme then walked up to Aang and embraced him closely. Padme: “There, there, Aang. It’s OK, I know how it looks, but it’s not your fault. You’re not the one to blame for that war escalating as long as it did.” Obi-wan: “I’ll have to agree with the senator on this. I could understand if it was for good intentions, but your world could have waited only several years for the war to end if the monks hadn’t acted too quickly.” Anakin: “Yeah, but instead, everyone in it had to wait 100 years! It really bothers me how bad everything turned out!” Padme: “I completely agree. This is all just…so absurd.” Aang: “I know, but that’s how it happened and this is all that I’m stuck with.”

Anakin continued looking at Aang and Padme. He then turned towards Katara who was also still sulking.

Later on, Katara was standing on a balcony, sulking as she stared out at the city. Anakin stepped out and stood next to her. He placed his hands on the bars in front of him, looked at Katara a few times, trying to think of what to say to her to try and make her feel better. He spoke softly to her. Anakin: “That’s a…very nice necklace you’re wearing.”

She slowly touched her necklace. Katara: “It’s my mother’s.”

He looked at her again. Katara: “It was past down to me after she died. It gives me strength whenever I need it, so I never take it off unless I really have to. It’s the only thing I have left of her. I miss her a lot. I was devastated when I lost her.” Anakin: “I know how you feel.”

He then turned his head back to his front and looked down. Anakin: “I lost my mother, too.”

Katara looked up at him. Anakin: “I grew up on my home planet as the son of a sole slave. Times were tough so I did everything I could to help her. I was exceptionally bright as a youngling but I never thought much about it; all I cared about was making her happy. When I was 9, I was pulled away from my home and my mother to train to become a Jedi. I always had heavy thoughts for her and I always worried about losing her. 10 years after I began my training, I had a vision that she was in danger, so I returned home to find her. I found out that Tusken Raiders had taken her from this farm that she was sold to. I never stopped searching for her, but…I didn’t act quick enough. She was with them for so long and she was treated very badly. She died in my arms not long after I found her.” Katara: “That’s terrible…” Anakin: “I know. I was so devastated about losing her, about facing my worst nightmare that I took all of my anger out on those savages and slaughtered all of them. I couldn’t control myself at the time and…I do bare some remorse for what I did…”

Katara looked back down. Katara: “I can’t say I didn’t feel the same way. Several years after my mother died, I confronted the man who took her away. I remembered seeing him when I was a little girl, so I could tell that he did it. I wanted so much to take all of my anger out on him, too but instead, I spared his life. Even today, I still couldn’t tell if I was too weak to do it or if I was strong enough not to.” Anakin: “Well, you’re a lot stronger then I am; I can tell you that much.” Katara: “However, I did learn from him that my mother died protecting me. Those Firebenders raided our village that day to find 1 last Waterbender and it was me. She died because he thought that she was that last Waterbender, because of me and she didn’t even know it at the time. I was there when I…”

She then began to feel even more emotional, almost as though she was about to cry. Katara: “I should have tried harder to stop it.” Anakin: “Katara, don’t say that. You know that there was nothing you could have done. You were still a little girl at the time. Besides, she was willing to sacrifice herself to save you. She did it because she loved you; you were her child. And I’m sure if she were to do it all over again, she would have made the same choice, even if she knew that she would lose her own life in the process.”

Katara eventually burst into tears. Anakin walked closer to her. She grabbed on to him and cried on him. Anakin then slowly placed his arms around her and sulked.

While Katara and Anakin continued their time together, the rest of the Benders were still telling their story. Zuko: “So then, after the Avatar defeated my father, I stepped up as the new Firelord and declared the war over.”

He looked over to Aang. Zuko: “Then we began to pave a new path…”

Aang smiled, Zuko turned his back to his front. Zuko: “And together, we’re hoping to restore the world as well as the honor of the Fire Nation.” Ahsoka: “That sounds like an amazing story, Zuko.” Obi-wan: “Yes, indeed. But I’m quite curious. You’re a member of the Fire Nation and yet, you disagreed with your own nation about the war that they inflicted. How come?” Zuko: “I was a few of the members of my nation who was against that war. During my time outside my home land, I have watched as many people suffered because of what my nation has done to them.”

Katara and Anakin walked in as Zuko continued talking. Ahsoka: “That’s very sad.” Katara: “I was among one of those people.”

Katara touched her necklace. Anakin: “I can’t say I’m surprised. I take it everyone suffered because of it.” Zuko: “Yes, they did, including members of my own nation. My family had for many years pushed them beyond our limits.” Katara: “All of the peasants were treated very badly. I should know; we witnessed it with our own eyes when we were there.” Zuko: “I, of course, was one of those people who suffered.” Ahsoka: “What? But aren’t you a member of the Royal Family?” Zuko: “Yes, but…that never mattered; not even to my own father. Throughout my entire life, I have struggled to earn my father’s love and recognition. I always lived in the shadows of my own family. One day, we had a war meeting. A few of my father’s best men were planning to sacrifice some of our soldiers to use them as a diversion. I stood up and questioned it. Afterwards, my father demanded that I was to be challenged to an Agni Kai, not knowing that it was him who was my opponent.” Ahsoka: “What’s an Agni Kai?” Zuko: “Agni Kai means “fire meeting”. It when 2 Firebenders get together and take part in a duel.” Padme: “Your own father challenged you to a duel?” Zuko: “Yes, and when I found out, I was devastated. Because I protested against his men and their plan, it was him that I insulted more than anyone. I begged him for forgiveness, but he insisted that I fight him. I refused to challenge my own father. He stood directly in front of me, and then…”

Everyone stood in silent as Zuko turned his head, closed his eyes and paused for a moment. Then, he looked back at them. Zuko: “He did this to me!”

Zuko pointed directly towards his scar. Padme: “Oh…my…gosh…your father gave you that scar!?!”

Zuko closed his eyes and held his head down. Ahsoka: “That’s…terrible…” Anakin: “No! That’s completely absurd! I refuse to believe any of this!” Obi-wan: “I don’t want to believe any of it, either. Your father sounds like a very dishonorable man.” Padme: “You had just as much right to stand up and speak out as all of those men in that room.” Zuko: “They would have disagreed with all of you.” Ahsoka: “So, what happened after your father burned your face?” Zuko: “After the duel, my father banished me, I was forbidden from ever setting foot on my home land. He told me that I must learn respect and that suffering will be my teacher.” Padme: “Oh, Zuko…” Zuko: “I was sent out to hunt the Avatar; a task my father thought was impossible to complete, but I went on it because I wanted so much for my father not to see me as a failure.” Sokka: “It’s true; he was our enemy for a time.” Padme: “So, when you were out journeying through the other nations, you began to realize what your nation was doing to them and those people.” Zuko: “Yes, I began to develop sympathy for the many people my country had terrorized. Realizing this, long after I returned to my home, I began to slowly realize who we were, what this war was doing to us, who we have become. I needed to end it to restore my nation’s true honor and I did.” Sokka: “And just in the nick of time.” Obi-wan: “I can’t say I truly understand how much you have suffered. That war of yours must have not only caused a great deal of devastation for all nations, but I can’t help but mention that the war has caused a seriously bad reputation on your part.” Ahsoka: “Yeah, no kidding. I bet all Firebenders were seen as evil.” Sokka: “Yeah, that’s…pretty much how it went.” Katara: “Never in my life would I have thought that I would come across any good Firebenders that wanted to help us.” Zuko: “If someone so much as found out that I was from the Fire Nation, I was automatically branded an enemy just like the Fire Nation would brand those of us who went against the war as a traitor to our country.” Obi-wan: “A traitor? To the Fire Nation? I find that a bit extreme.” Anakin: “So do I, but more to the point, I don’t care what nation you’re from, you hardly show any traits of someone who’s anything like them. At least…not to me.” Obi-wan: “Same here.” Zuko: “Regardless, that’s just how it was.”

Ahsoka, feeling sympathetic towards Zuko, walked up to him and warmly embraced him. Ahsoka: “You don’t have to worry about any of that. None of it matters anymore. You’re in a new world now. Here, no one knows who you are or what your country did. You’re among friends now, Zuko. I hope you realize that.”

Zuko seemed touched. Zuko: “Your kindness is greatly appreciated, Ahsoka.”

Padme then walked in and embraced him closely as well. At that time, there was a transmission going off. Voice: “Hello! There anyone there? Can you hear me?” Obi-wan: “I read you loud and clear, Commander Cody. What is the situation?” Cody: “It’s those…things! They’re back! They’re attacking more of the inhabitants! We need help!” Obi-wan: “Just send us the coordinates and we’ll be right there. It’s time we introduce our new friends.” Cody: “New...friends? What exactly do you mean by that?” Obi-wan: “You’ll know as soon as we arrive. Over and out.”

The transmission was terminated. Obi-wan: “Well, it looks as though our Heartless foes are on the prowl again. You kids think you’re up to fighting them off?”

They all pulled out their Keyblades. Katara: “Bring it on!” Padme: “I’m coming with you!” Anakin: “No, Padme! It’s too dangerous!” Padme: “I know, but I want to see if what you guys are telling me about these…benders is true. I’ll try to stay out of the way.”

Anakin hesitated. Anakin: “Alright, but you need to be careful once we get there. There’s no telling what those Heartless are capable of.”

Padme nodded. Soon enough, they were on their way.

They soon arrived in another area on Coruscant. They ran in as people were running away. They soon arrived where the Jedi’s clone troopers were. Cody: “Thank goodness, you’re here, general!” Obi-wan: “What’s the status report on our current situation?” Cody: “Those things just showed up out of nowhere. As always, our weapons are ineffective. They outnumbered us before we even had a chance to call in reinforcements. You and the rest of the Jedi order are perhaps the only ones that stand a chance against them.” Obi-wan: “Oh, I’m not so sure of that. I believe we have a better alternative against those creatures now.” Cody: “What? Really? Uh, what do you mean by that, sir?” Obi-wan: “Cody, say hello to our new friends and the last hope against this new threat.”

Cody looked over and saw the benders. Cody: “You brought along a bunch of kids? How are they supposed to help our situation?” Obi-wan: “Oh, you will find that these kids are more than capable of holding their own during a battle.” Anakin: “Shall I do the honors, master?” Obi-wan: “Of course, Anakin. Be my guest.” Anakin: “Alright, guys, show everyone here what you can do and take out these creatures.”

The Benders then pulled out their Keyblades. Katara: “It’ll be our pleasure.”

They soon rushed over towards the Heartless. Everyone else stood by and watched as the Benders took down the Heartless, one by one. Padme as well as Cody and the rest of the clone troopers stood in awe as they watched the benders fight off the Heartless. Ahsoka, Anakin and Obi-wan stood by with satisfied looks on their faces. Cody: “I don’t believe it!! They’re actually destroying those creatures!” Padme: “So, these are our new hope, just like you said.” Anakin: “Of course. Would we ever lie to you about something like this?” Padme: “If you did, I would be very surprised. It wouldn’t be like you to pull those kinds of jokes.” Anakin: “You know me all to well, Padme.”

At that time, another clone trooper clad in blue and white arrived on the scene. Anakin: “Ah, there you are, Captain Rex.” Rex: “We got here as soon as we could.” Anakin: “Good! Did you remember to bring what I asked for on our way here?” Rex: “Yes, of course, but what an unusual request. Why did you ask us to bring in over 2 metric tons of rock and water?” Anakin: “Oh, you’ll see…soon enough.”

The clone troopers soon arrived on the scene with barrels of water and large crates containing huge rocks. Rex: “Is that all of them?” Trooper: “No, there’s still more we need to pull out.” Anakin: “I think this be more than enough.” Rex: “Um…OK…So…now what?” Anakin: “Leave the rest of it to me.”

Using his Force powers, Anakin knocked over some of the nearby barrels and crates, water spilled out of the barrels as did the rocks from the crates. Rex and Cody were startled. Rex: “Have you gone off the deep end!?! What do you think you’re doing!?!” Anakin: “Giving these kids an extra boost of their true potential.”

As the benders continued fighting, Katara noticed there was water all around her. She smiled, then used her bending and lifted the water off of the ground. Padme, Cody, Rex and some of the clone troopers became very startled by what they saw. Toph soon stood near some of the rocks and smiled. Toph: “Now we’re talking!”

Using her amazing Earthbending to lift some of the rocks from the ground and tossed them towards the Heartless. She then pulled all of the rocks together, bring them below some of the Heartless, then banged her arms together, bringing the rocks up and enclosing the Heartless in between them like a sandwich. That surprised them even more. Cody: “That girl just manipulated those rocks in ways no Jedi ever could!”

Zuko shot a few fire balls out of his Keyblades, then shot out a few more out of his fists and unleashed some of his flare kicks. Aang, flying with the use of 2 Keyblades, flew after several airborne Heartless, then used his Airbending abilities on them as well as his Keyblade. Everyone but the Jedi were spellbound from what they were witnessing. Rex: “I…I’ve never seen anything like it! What are these kids?” Obi-wan: “These kids…are Benders.” Cody: “Benders?” Padme: “This is incredible! I never would have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes!” Anakin: “I know, I was shocked the first time I’ve witnessed it.” Ahsoka: “Me, too.” Obi-wan: “As was I.”

Just then, Anakin noticed one of the Heartless crept up behind Katara. Anakin: “Katara! Behind you!”

Katara turned her head and looked behind her, but it was too late, the Heartless lunged out. Anakin ran out towards her and held his hand out, using his Force abilities, immobilized the Heartless. Katara was then given a fighting chance, she bend her Keyblade into water and eradicated the Heartless completely. Katara: “Thanks for the assist, Anakin! That Heartless nearly had me!” Anakin: “Glad I could help.”

Soon enough, more Heartless showed up, they were completely surrounded. Katara: “It’s obvious we can’t keep fighting this alone. We need your help.” Anakin: “Sure, let me know if there’s anything you need me to do and I’ll do it!” Katara: “Right!”

More Heartless surrounded them. Katara: “Do you think you can hold off all of these Heartless for as long as you can?” Anakin: “I’ll give it my best shot.” Katara: “Good! That’s all I can ask for.”

Anakin used his Force powers to hold off the Heartless while Katara pulled in as much water as she could muster up. She then pulled all of the water into her Keyblade and sent it all back out with 1 slash of her weapon. Anakin: “Nicely done!” Katara: “Thanks! You know, we make a pretty good team.” Anakin: “You really think so?”

It didn’t take long for the Heartless to catch their attention again. Anakin: “Now’s not the time for casual conversations!” Katara: “I couldn’t agree more, Anakin! Let’s save it for after these Heartless are gone!”

It didn’t take long for Ahsoka and Obi-wan to get involved, as well. As Ahsoka ran off to assist Sokka and Suki, Obi-wan fought off the Heartless with Toph, Zuko and Aang. The more they fought together, the more they learned about each other and the closer they have become. Toph, Zuko and Aang came together and fought beside Master Kenobi, each with pleasing grins on their faces. Obi-wan: “I have to admit, you’re all pretty good for a group of kids.” Aang: “Thanks, Master Kenobi! You’re not half bad yourself.” Zuko: “It’s good to know we have someone like you on our side, Obi-wan.” Toph: “I’ll say, not bad for someone who’s powerless against the Heartless.” Zuko: “I wouldn’t say that; not completely, at the very least.” Toph: “You’re right! I think I’m more than OK with being wrong for once.” Obi-wan: “I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on it, my friends.”

More and more Heartless came in from everywhere. They were soon outnumbered and quickly surrounded. Toph: “Grr! Heartless everywhere!” Zuko: “This is crazy! We can’t take on all of them at once!”

As the Heartless struck, Obi-wan held both his arms out and held back all of the Heartless with the use of his Force powers. Toph, Zuko and Aang looked up at Obi-wan and observed as he struggled to hold back all of them. Toph: “Obi-wan! What are you doing!?!” Obi-wan: “Giving you all of fighting chance! Now go! I don’t know how long I can keep this up!” Zuko: “You heard him! Let’s take them all out!”

Toph and Aang nodded and lunged out. They moved quickly, taking down all of the Heartless with the use of their bending and Keyblades. Obi-wan continued to struggle. Obi-wan: “Hurry! I’m beginning…to lose my…grip!”

Toph, Aang and Zuko worked as fast as they could. With each Heartless that they took out, more of them kept coming. Toph: “It’s no use; they just keep coming!” Zuko: “I’m guessing it obvious that we can’t do this alone.”

The clone troopers grew anxious as they kept watching. Cody: “It’s no use! They can’t keep fighting against all of these creatures forever!” Rex: “What can we do about it? We’re no match against them. At least those kids stand a fighting chance.” Cody: “Well, we must do something! Even the Jedi know that they don't stand much of a chance against these creatures and they’re risking their lives helping those kids. At this rate, our last hope will be wiped out within a matter of minutes.”

Rex looked out and watched as the benders and the Jedi struggled during their fight. Rex: “Alright, I guess we have no other choice. Men, let’s back up the Jedi and the, uh…Benders.” Troopers: “Sir, yes, sir!”

The clone troopers ran out into the battle. They stood by and shot at many of the Heartless. Ahsoka stopped to observe them. Ahsoka: “What are you doing!?! You don’t stand a chance against these creatures!” Rex: “Neither do you, but that didn’t stop you from running in and fighting them head on.” Ahsoka: “Um…point well taken. Just…try to be careful and don’t get near any of them. We still don’t know what they’re capable of.” Rex: “Roger that! You heard her, men! Target all of those creatures and don‘t ever let them get the better of you!” Troopers: “Sir! Yes, sir!”

The troopers then shot out at the Heartless again. Ahsoka, Suki and Sokka ran out and fought off each of the Heartless that are being targeted by the clone troopers. Just then, Cody began to notice something strange about Sokka and Suki. Cody: “Hey! You! Young man clad in blue!”

Sokka turned around and looked at Cody. Sokka: "Who? Me?" Cody: “Yes, you! How come you and that girl in green aren’t doing what your other friends are doing with the rocks and water and…the…other…natural elements?” Sokka: “You mean Bending? Sorry, Suki and I can’t do any of that! We’re not Benders!” Cody: “What? But I thought all of you were capable of doing all of that stuff.” Sokka: “Well…not really. It’s a long story and I’d rather not get involved with telling it at the moment.” Cody: “Right! Understood! Sorry to bother you!” Sokka: “Oh, sure, no problem, it’s not like we’re in the middle of a battle against dangerous creatures from another dimension or anything!”

Sokka went back to fighting. Cody: “What an odd young man.”

The troopers continued shooting. Along the way, Anakin and Obi-wan noticed the Clone Troopers were participating in the fight. Anakin: “What? Have the clone troopers lost their minds?” Obi-wan: “No, I think they’re trying to help us. The situation has escalated more than even we could keep up, the Heartless keep outnumbering us more than we can keep up…”

Just then, Obi-wan noticed something. Obi-wan: “Anakin, look!”

Anakin looked over and noticed that the clone troopers shot at the Heartless, causing them to become more sluggish. Anakin: “The Heartless! They’re… weakening? But that…that’s never happened before! How is this possible?”

Obi-wan began to ponder. Obi-wan: “How, indeed? Hm…I wonder?”

Obi-wan then pulled out his Lightsaber; he slashed one of the Heartless nearby. He was shocked to see that he was able to penetrate it. The Heartless went all wobbly and weak, but then went right back to normal. Obi-wan: “Strange; how come I was never able to do that? Hm… could it be…”

He looked over towards the benders who were still fighting. Obi-wan: “No, this can’t be a coincidence. It fits together all too well.” Anakin: “What are you suggesting; can we destroy these things with our weapons now?”

Obi-wan shook his head. Obi-wan: “No, Anakin, I don’t think we can destroy them, but I believe we have gained an ability to weaken these creatures.” Anakin: “But how and why did we just receive this just now?” Obi-wan: “I believe we have our Bender friends to thank for this. Whatever force is emulating from those weapons of their, our weapons seem to be taking it in.”

Anakin pulled out his Lightsaber and grinned. Anakin: “I have no idea what any of that means and I don’t care! We can penetrate these creatures and that’s good enough for me!”

Anakin rushed over and started slashing every Heartless he comes across. Obi-wan: “There he goes again.”

Obi-wan ran out and reunited with Toph, Zuko and Aang. It didn’t take the benders long to realize that something strange was happening to the Heartless. Katara: “What…what is going on here, it seems almost like the Heartless are getting weaker and weaker.”

She looked over to Anakin, who was slashing each Heartless one by one, she soon noticed that they were weakening. Katara: “Anakin…what is…?” Anakin: “I don’t know what this is, exactly, but this is the first time that I had a chance to fight back and now, we’re much closer to ridding the galaxy of these Heartless than we would have ever thought possible. Let’s destroy these things!” Katara: “Right!”

They leapt out and continued fighting. Obi-wan regrouped with Toph, Zuko and Aang. Toph: “Obi-wan!” Aang: “What was the hold up?” Obi-wan: “Sorry, I was…conjuring up a very interesting hypothesis.” Zuko: “You sure picked a fine time to start working on a theory; maybe you should save that for after this fight is over.” Obi-wan: “Oh, I assure you, Zuko; this one is indeed very important.” Toph: “OK, then, fill us in, what is this theory that you’ve been working on?” Obi-wan: “This!”

Obi-wan lunged towards one of the Heartless and slashed it with his Lightsaber. The Heartless then became depleted and lost all will to fight. Zuko: “Whoa…” Aang: “No way!” Toph: “Why didn’t you try that earlier?” Obi-wan: “It never worked until just now.” Aang: “But, this doesn’t make any sense, our Keyblades were the only things that could harm them. Now your weapons are working on them, too?” Obi-wan: “Yes, I believe your weapons are providing some sort of strange power that enables our weapons to penetrate these creatures.” Aang: “Well, when you put it that way…that does make sense…I guess…” Toph: “I don’t think so.” Zuko: “It doesn’t matter, whatever it is, it means that now you guys have the upper hand.” Toph: “Great, whatever, you can harm these things now, let’s just get on with bringing the hurt on them already!” Obi-wan: “Yes, let’s not waist any more time.”

They moved out and continued on the fight.

After they spent an extended amount of time fighting, they manage to finish off all of the Heartless. Sokka: “Well, that was a long battle, but thank goodness it’s finally over, now we can just head back and…OH, NO! ANOTHER HEARTLESS!!”

Everyone turned around and spotted another humongous Heartless. Zuko: “Dark side!” Toph: “Whoa! This thing is even bigger than the last time we fought against one.” Obi-wan: “What sort of Heartless is this!?!” Katara: “This one we know all too well. Our captains are the only ones powerful enough to face off against at least 2 of these things.” Anakin: “Then we’re going to need to combine our strengths just to take this thing down. Give it everything you’ve got! Don’t hold back!” Katara: “Stay close to any one of us with a Keyblade.”

And so, they commenced their brutal battle against the Heartless. Everyone did everything they could against the relentless fiend. Aang: “It’s no use, this thing is even more powerful than before!” Toph: “Do you think it has something to do with the fact that it’s larger than usual?” Katara: “That’s a possibility.” Aang: “Hey! Look!”

They looked up and saw that it began to do something strange. Ahsoka: “Hey, what’s it doing?” Katara: “Strange, that’s never happened before.”

Suddenly, the Heartless splits in 2. Sokka: “AAAHHH! THE HEARTLESS SPLIT IN 2!?! WE WERE BARELY MANAGING AGAINST 1 OF THEM!!! WHAT’LL WE DO!?! WHAT’LL WE DO!?! WHAT’LL WE DO!?!”

Anakin then walked up to him and slapped him upside the head. Anakin: “GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF, SOKKA! Panicking is not going to destroy these Heartless! Now, you, Suki and the clone troopers will face off against that Heartless, while Ahsoka, Obi-wan and I will take on that one with the benders! Got all of that!?!” Sokka: “Yes...” Anakin: “Good, now get going!”

Sokka ran off. Suki went after him. Suki: “Come on! You heard your commander and chief; we need to fight off that Heartless!” Rex: “Roger that! Let’s move it, men!”

The other troopers left with Rex and Cody. Katara: “OK, does anyone have plan?” Toph: “I have one: don’t let that thing kill you.” Obi-wan: “Good plan….”

The Jedi and the Benders took on the Heartless with everything they had as Sokka, Suki and the Clone Troopers did the same with the other one. It took them a while but they finally manage to defeat both of them. Everyone stood around and panted from the long battle. Anakin: “OK, that should be the last of them.” Ahsoka: “I sure hope so, I don’t know if I still have it in me to continue fighting those things.” Aang: “Me, neither!” Sokka: “I seriously doubt it; usually the Heartless stop coming right after we took down the big ones. I don’t think we’ll be seeing any more of those things anytime soon.”

Everyone regrouped with one another. Rex: “I can’t thank you kids enough for helping us fight off those…uh…those…what are those things, anyway?” Obi-wan: “They’re called Heartless.” Cody: “Heartless, sir?” Anakin: “Yeah, they’re beings that tear rifts between worlds, cause havoc, and stuff like that.” Rex: “Um...OK, but how do they kids tie into this, more to the point, who or what are they?” Obi-wan: “These kids are our new allies from another world.” Cody: “You mean another planet?” Obi-wan: “No, another dimension.” Rex: “What? You mean they’re not even from this galaxy?” Anakin: “No, much like the Heartless; the difference being that they’re here to restore our world, not tear it to shreds.”  

Suddenly, several more Heartless show up. Sokka: “Oh, you got to be kidding me!! There are still more of them!?!”

Everyone pulled out their weapons and readied themselves. Then all, of the Heartless suddenly disappeared. Everyone put away their weapons and stood around in silence. Zuko: “Uh…what just happened?”

Katara looked around. Katara: “Hm…” Anakin: “Huh? What is it, Katara?” Katara: “Something’s not right. Toph, do you feel anything out of the ordinary?”

Toph pulled out her Keyblade, then tried to concentrate. Toph: “Wait a minute! I do feel something around here.”

She walked off until she came across some type of object. She moved the object out of the way, revealing a Keyhole. Katara’s face grew serious. Katara: “I knew it!”

Toph then held out her Keyblade and shot a beam of light out of it, sealing the Keyhole. Ahsoka: “Was that the Keyhole you guys have been talking about?” Katara: “Yes! With each one sealed, fewer Heartless will continue showing up.”

Soon enough, other Jedi; Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, Mace Windu and of course, Yoda, arrived on the scene. Anakin: “It’s about time you showed up! Where were you guys when we needed you 2 hours ago?” Sokka: “Uh, Anakin, who are these guys?” Anakin: “Members of the Jedi Council. They’re few of the most powerful Jedi in the Galaxy.” Sokka: “Oh, so these guys are like the Head Honchos of the Jedi Order.” Anakin: “Yeah, something like that.” Kit: “Sorry it took us so long. But when we arrived, it seemed as though you had the upper hand.” Sokka: “Are you kidding me!?! We were outnumbered; we only won because we got lucky!” Mace: “Quite the contrary, you handled those creatures in ways we have never seen before.” Yoda: “Yes, impressed we are to see your special skills against those creatures.” Kit: “Not even we came close to actually defeated them.” Mace: “We only got by just forcing them away with the Force, but only for a brief period of time.” Toph: “Is that what you guys did, you just drove them out? That’s…hard to believe.” Mace: “Yes, but we’ll worry about that later, first of all, who are you? Where do you come from?” Anakin: “This is Katara, Toph, Zuko, Aang, Suki…oh…and that’s Sokka over there.” Sokka: “Hey!” Ahsoka: “These guys are from another dimension.” Mace: “Another dimension, huh? I knew I sensed an unusual shift in the Force.” Kit: “That was quite a performance you kids have put on. How is it you are able to do what you just did?” Obi-wan: “Our young friends possess the ability to control and manipulate the natural elements in ways that differ from ours. They call themselves Benders.” Yoda: “Hm, much understanding of your ways, we are short of, or who you kids are.” Sokka: “Uh…what?” Mace: “I agree with Master Yoda on this. Return with us to the Jedi Temple; there are lots of things that we need to straighten out.” Aang: “Where is that?” Kit: “Right here on Coruscant, of course. The others will be waiting for us there.” Plo Koon: “We must hurry back, those things could return at any minute.”

Later on, they all arrived at the Jedi Temple. There, the Jedi Council called upon Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme to talk about the Benders. They spent many hours telling them everything that they have heard from them. The Council then called out Ahsoka while, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme stayed and continued talking.

Later on, Ahsoka closely examined Toph. She began to notice something odd about her. Toph, however was irritated by her constant scrutinizing. Ahsoka: “You’re…blind. I’ve never seen anything like it!” Toph: “Yeah, yeah, that’s great, could you quit staring at me and step back; you’re making me feel uncomfortable.” Ahsoka: “What? How did you even know I was observing you? You can’t even see me.”

Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme walked back in as Toph spoke. Toph: “No, but I can feel you breathing on my face, also I can feel you pacing back and forth in front of me. I know what you’re thinking. You’re shocked that someone like me could possibly be here when I’m at a disadvantage because I can’t see anything.” Obi-wan: “Actually, I was thinking that you must be a remarkable, young girl to even be here, despite your…lack of eye sight.” Toph: “Well, now that you mention it, I am blind but I never really had a hard time seeing. You see, I can “see” with Earthbending by feeling vibrations on the ground. They tell me everything that I need to know; which is almost as good as normal eye sight.” Ahsoka: “Really?”

Ahsoka looked down at Toph’s feet. Ahsoka: “Is that why you don’t wear any shoes?” Toph: “Yes, it’s actually normal for Earthbenders to have bare feet because it helps to connect better with the ground.” Obi-wan: “An Earthbender’s best advantage.” Toph: “Exactly. The vibrations tell me everything that I need to know. I’ve also developed the ability to bend metal because of it.” Ahsoka: “You can bend metal the same way that you bend rocks?” Toph: “Sure, there are small fragments and impurities within the metal that I am able to reach into, so technically, I’m actually bending that, not the actual metal.” Ahsoka: “That’s incredible! Almost everything here is made of metal.” Obi-wan: “Fascinating. So you can bend any metal of any kind?” Toph: “That’s right, if I couldn’t, then I wouldn’t be able to do this.”

Toph lifted her fist up and just like that, Anakin’s right arm was lifted up. Anakin: “What? Hey!”

She then bend his arm all over the place. Toph then threw both fists to 1 side, dragging Anakin towards 1 side of the room. She then threw both fists towards the other side and pulled him towards the other side. Anakin: “Toph! Cut it out!”

She then lifted her fist up and then slammed it to the ground, slamming his arm to the ground as well and held it there. Anakin tried to pull his arm off the floor. Anakin: “Let me go! Now!” Obi-wan: “Toph! Release him!” Toph: “Oh…alright…”

Toph lifted her hands up and relaxed them. Anakin then managed to pull himself back up. Anakin: “That’s wasn’t funny!” Toph: “You’re right. It was hilarious!”

Anakin glared at her. Padme: “That was incredible! You knew about Anakin’s cybernetic arm?” Toph: “Of course, the vibrations on the ground tell me everything. Through them, I was able to notice that Anakin was partly metal and because of that, I was able to bend his arm to my will.”

Sokka rushed over to him. Sokka: “You have a robotic arm!?! THAT IS SO COOL! Does it hurt someone even more if you punch them with it?” Anakin: “I don’t know…!”

He held his arm up as he was about to punch Sokka. Anakin: “Want to find out?” Sokka: “Uh…no! That’s OK!”

He rushed back over to where he stood. Obi-wan: “Can your Earthbending senses extend even further?” Toph: “Sure, it extends further than you can imagine. I can feel vibrations all over this building. I know exactly what’s going on in here every second of every day. Oh?…And it seems as though we’re about to have an unexpected visit from someone who not only has big feet but has a very hard time staying on them.”

Anakin and Padme looked at each other. Anakin, Padme: “Jar Jar.”

Suddenly, Jar Jar came rushing in, constantly tripping as he entered the room. All of the Benders expect Toph stood and stared with a disturbed look on each of their faces as did Sokka and Suki. Sokka: “Uh…who is this guy?”

Padme walked up to Jar Jar and helped him up. Padme: “Everyone, this is Representative Binks, he is a representative of Naboo, much like myself.” Sokka: “That guy, a member of your senate? You’ve got to be kidding me!” Anakin: “Hey, if the likes of you were to become a fierce warrior, I’m willing to believe anything.”

Sokka looked back at Anakin in an irritated manner. Jar Jar: “Mesa am so happy to see you alive. Mesa was so worried about all of you…”

He then rushed over to Anakin. Jar Jar: “Especially yousa. Yousa don’t scare me like that again. Yousa knowa how much mesa worry about you, Ani.” Toph: “Ani!?!”

Toph let out a huge laugh. Toph: “Is that your little nickname!?!”

Toph kept laughing. Anakin: “Yeah! So, what?” Sokka: “You know, that sounds like a girl’s name.” Toph: “Oh, I’m going to have some major mileage out of this one.”

Anakin glared at Toph as she continued laughing a bit more. He then looked over to the benders. Jar Jar: “Yousa made some new friends. Mesa so happy to be seeing new friends.” Ahsoka: “These kids are our new allies in the battle against those new creatures that have been terrorizing people. These are the Benders, Katara, Aang, Zuko and Toph, and their warrior friends, Suki and Sokka.”

He rushed over to Katara and shook her hand. Jar Jar: “Mesa am so glad to meet you.” Katara: “Um…thank you…Jar Jar.”

He then rushed over to Aang. Jar Jar: “Yousa havea big arrow on yousa forehead. Yousa know that, right?” Aang: “Um…yeah, I’ve had it since I've mastered Airbending. How I got it…is not something I’d like to recall.”

He then rushed over to Zuko. Jar Jar: “Yousa havea big, ugly, red thing on yousa left eye.” Zuko: “I know. The story of how I got it is…kind of saddening.” Jar Jar: “Mesa sorry to hear that. Mesa wishes to hear it later.”

He then rushed over to Toph and observed her. Jar Jar: “Yousa have pale eyes. Yousa blind! Yousa blind!”

She grabbed him by the nose. Toph: “Can it, needle nose! I already know that!”

She pushed him back. He then rushed over to Suki. Jar Jar: “Yousa looka so pretty with your face all white like that.”

Suki giggled a little. Suki: “Why, thank you, Jar Jar. This is my traditional Kyoshi warrior face make up. It suppose to scare away enemies.” Jar Jar: “Aw, mesa don’t think yousa so scary. Why woulda anyone thinka that way?” Suki: “Aw, that’s the nicest thing anyone would say to me.”

Sokka became furious and immediately dashed over towards Jar Jar. Sokka: “Alright! Listen here, you…weird…long eared…amphibious…horse…thing!”

Anakin slapped himself on the forehead. Sokka: “I don’t know what you’re trying to pull, but I don’t like that you’re talking to my girlfriend like that and I don’t trust you around her at all, so you had better not try anything around her or else you’re not going to like what I’ll do!” Jar Jar: “Yousa calm down. Mesa nota try anything, mesa justa saying hello to the nice, white faced girl. Thata be all.” Sokka: “You had better just be saying “hello” to her.” Suki: “Sokka, be nice; he’s just being friendly.”

He looked towards Suki, then back at Jar Jar. Sokka: “I’m watching you.”

As he walked back, he twisted his ankle; he then hopped forward, screeching in pain. He then lost his balance, then moved back and forth, trying to regain it. He then crashed into Jar Jar. The 2 of them struggled to get themselves up while trying to sort each other out. Sokka, of course, was complaining more than Jar Jar. Katara placed her hand in front of her eyes in shame. Toph was heard laughing again. Everyone else stared at the 2 of them in an awkward manner. Anakin, however, seemed somewhat pleased as he folded his arms. He also had a gratified grin. Anakin: “I think those 2 are going to get along just fine.”

Katara went over and untangled Sokka and Jar Jar from their predicament. Jar Jar then ran over to the Jedi and stood by them. Jar Jar: “Mesa ama so happy to see yousa alive. Thema big, scary creatures ama always makea big trouble. Yousa so lucky to be alive.” Ahsoka: “We’re actually lucky that the Benders came to our rescue.” Anakin: “No kidding. They have been more than helpful during our first battle. Not only did they fought those things, they eradicated them.” Obi-wan: “Yes, it truly was the most interesting thing I have ever seen.” Sokka: “Aw, go on.” Jar Jar: “Mesa ama so very grateful. The Jedi can not standa up to those creatures, theysa too powerful.” Katara: “We know, we couldn’t either until we were able to obtain these weapons.”

Katara summoned her weapon. Katara: “Our…Keyblades.”

Katara put hers away. Katara: “They’re the only weapons strong enough to destroy the Heartless for good. Everything else is as good as useless.” Suki: “Rest assured, we’ll do everything we can to change all of that. I just hope we’re able to come across that before the Heartless due away with you guys.” Anakin: “Yeah, let’s hope that never happens.” Katara: “So, anyway, is there any word from the Jedi Council?” Obi-wan: “Oh! Right, well, um…ahem! they wish to speak with each of you individually, starting with you, Katara.” Katara: “OK.” Anakin: “I’ll go with her. I would like to be a representative on her behalf.” Obi-wan: “I’ll allow it.”

Soon enough, Katara stood in the middle of the room in front of the Jedi Council. Anakin stood beside her. Obi-wan joined the rest of the Jedi Council. Mace: “So, you must be Katara the Waterbender.” Katara: “Yes, that’s me.” Mace: “We have heard so much about you from Masters Kenobi and Skywalker, young Padawan Tano and Senator Amidala. Although, it was from Master Skywalker that we have heard about you the most.” Yoda: “Heard from each of them we have about the terrible loss of your mother, yes. Saddened we are to hear about such a heavy burden. Much condolences you have received from us.” Anakin: “Not only did Katara suffer from the loss, she had to step up and take her mother’s place.” Obi-wan: “Yes, indeed, she, along with her brother, was forced to grow up at such a young age.” Katara: “I was still a little girl when it happened.” Obi-wan: “Katara has also confronted the man who did it but decided not to take his life in the process.” Katara: “I wanted so much for him to feel the same kind of pain that my mother did. But instead, I held back, knowing that he has suffered enough already.” Mace: “You know, it takes a great deal of courage to do what you did, to spare the life of a man who took away a loved one.” Kit: “We hoped you realize this even though you are unsure if sparing his life made you weak. We just want to let you know that everyone else told us it is not and we agree with them.” Yoda: “Yes, to spare ones life and consider that person to be weak, the way of the Dark Side, it is.” Katara: “The…Dark Side?” Mace: “Yes, often times, members of our order go rouge; their desire for vengeance or any other negative emotions take control of them and turn them evil. Here, we call it turning to the Dark Side.” Katara: “Well, that makes sense, actually.” Mace: “But that particular incident became a major turning point in your life, if you would have taken that man’s life, things may have gotten worse for you. But unlike Master Skywalker, you held back.” Anakin: “Yeah, you’re doing a lot better than me, so I don’t think you need to worry so much.” Yoda: “Yes, that much is true.” Mace: “As hard as it was for you, we are…very proud of you for what you did.” Obi-wan: “Yes, your actions have earned you a great deal of respect from the Jedi Council.”

Katara bowed. Katara: “Thank you, masters.”

Obi-wan smiled. Mace: “Bring in the one called Toph.”
          
Much time later, Toph was standing was standing on the same spot as Katara. She stood alone. Mace: “So, you must be the Earthbender of the group.” Toph: “Yes.” Mace: “And from what we have heard from Master Kenobi, you’re a very unique one at that.” Obi-wan: “As you can see, young Toph over here is blind.” Mace: “Yes, that much I can tell, but Toph’s blindness has served as a major asset in her Earthbending abilities, is that right, Toph?” Toph: “That’s right. I am blind, but I have another way of seeing. I can see with Earthbending by feeling vibrations on the ground, which has served me as an almost completely reliable substitute for normal eyesight, if not somewhat better and right now, my feet are telling me that not all of you are here, even though you say you are. I still feel at least 2 empty seats in this room.” Mace: “You’re right, not all of us are here, not in person, at least. A few of us are somewhere else, but they are able to create holographic projections of themselves so that they can be here without actually being in this room with us.”

Toph folded her arms and pouted a little as she turned her head to the left a bit. Toph: “Obviously, those holographic contraptions of yours only work on people who CAN see.” Obi-wan: “We know, perhaps we can find a way for you to sense out holograms.” Mace: “We’ll worry about that later. Despite that, we are quite impressed with your skills and your ability to adapt your blindness to your advantage.” Toph: “Too bad my parents didn’t feel the same way.” Obi-wan: “What do you mean by that?” Toph: “Well, ever since I was a young girl, my parents always treated me like a helpless child because I’m blind. They kept me locked away from the outside world because they couldn’t see me as anything more than that. Even after I’ve proven to them that I’ve honed my blindness to get in touch with the vibrations in the ground and became more advanced than any other Earthbender could, they still wanted to hold me back. Those people had no idea who I was, they didn’t even want to know what I am and you want to know the worst part? Some hag bribed them to do it! She was willing to keep my family as wealthy as they were if they would keep me locked up just to prevent me from teaching the Avatar Earthbending! They never cared about me; they were only thinking about their own wealthy status!”

Obi-wan shook his head in disappointment. Obi-wan: “Your parents were wrong to treat you like they did. They judged you merely by your blindness and failed to see, even refused to realize the phenomenal person you have become. I hope you  understand that we don’t see you that way, Toph.” Toph: “Yes, Master Kenobi. Thank you for your consideration.”

Obi-wan smiled. Yoda: “Much astonished we are to hear how you advanced beyond your belittlement. Disheartened we are to hear of your plight.” Toph: “My friends are the only ones who truly understands me. When my parents chased them away, I decided to run away from them and join my friends on their journey. As wrong as it may have seemed, I think any person in their right mind would have done it, too, if they were in my position.” Kit: “And many of those people would agree with you. Nothing is worse than being judged for what you are instead of being seen for who you are. But none the less, that is a very inspiring story.” Mace: “Thank you for your time, Toph. It is greatly appreciated.” Toph: “No problem.”

She placed her hands behind her head and let out a big grin. Toph: “I kind of enjoyed having this talk and you’ve given me a better insight and understanding of how I’ve been seen as.”

Toph bowed. Yoga: “The young Firelord, we wish to see next.” Mace: “Yes, please bring in Zuko for us, will you?”

Next up, Zuko stood in the middle of the room, much like Katara and Toph did. Yoda: “Firelord Zuko, newly crowned ruler of the Fire Nation you are, yes?” Zuko: “Yes.” Mace: “We have been eager to speak with you, Zuko. We have heard many terrible things about what your country did to your world.” Yoda: “Disheartening your story is. Displeased we are to hear of so much senseless destruction.” Obi-wan: “Many of us were also especially displeased to hear about how your own family treated you.” Mace: “Yes, it must have been a horrible thing for your father to give you that scar and then banish you after you stood up for the well-being of your own people.” Plo Koon: “Your father sounded like a very cruel man.” Zuko: “Yes, he was, all I ever wanted from him was to respect me and even earning his love was a struggle.” Kit: “Your father never loved you, did he?” Zuko: “No…he didn’t.” Yoda: “Sorry we are to hear what you have been through.” Kit: “But we were enlightened to hear that you were against that war and fought to end it.” Zuko: “Yes…it took me too long to realize what we were doing to the world. My great grandfather, Firelord Sozin, inflicted that war to share his greatness with the world, however, we were anything but great. We’ve caused a great deal of fear and destruction towards the other nations when trying to claim them in the name of the Fire Nation; we nearly destroyed them. That’s why I had to end it. Hardly anyone from my country supported me, they even branded me a full-blown traitor because of it, but I had to do it, I had to step up as the new Firelord and lead my people down the right path; the path that would bring forth our true honor.” Mace: “But it wasn’t easy, getting to where you are now.” Zuko: “No, I had to struggle a lot before I was able to take my rightful place as the heir to the throne, but in the end, it was all worth it. I have become exactly who I wanted to be and to be surrounded by so many people that care about me, I can’t tell you how good it feels.” Yoda: “Inspiring your courage and dedication is. Continuing to restore the true honor of your nation, much luck we wish you.”

Zuko placed his fist on the palm of his hand, held them in front of him and bowed. Zuko: “It is an honor to be here with you, Jedi Masters. I’ve enjoyed this talk we’ve had.” Kit: “As did I, young Firelord.”

Zuko smiled, as did Obi-wan. Mace: “We wish to speak with Aang next; the one you call the Avatar.” Obi-wan: “I shall bring him in here.”

Obi-wan got up and walked out with Zuko.
          
Later on, Obi-wan returned with Aang. Obi-wan sat back down on his seat as Aang stood in the same spot as his friends. Mace: “So, you must be what they call in your world “The Avatar”, correct?” Aang: “Yes, that’s right.” Mace: “We have heard about your little mishap with the monks of your temple that led you to being frozen in an iceberg for a century; in your world’s time.”

Aang held his head down and paused. Mace: “Aang?” Aang: “Unfortunately, you’d be right.”

Aang lifted his head back up and looked back at the Jedi Councilmen. Aang: “The whole world was counting on me to save them and…I wasn’t there…I felt like I let everyone down.”

Everyone in the room was silent. The different councilmen looked at each other in a concerned manner. Mace: “It must have been tough…for someone your age to find out that you were your own world’s last hope, even though you weren’t meant to find out about it until you were older and to not be there when they needed you…no words can express how…discontent we are to hear that.” Yoda: “Yes, saddened we are to hear of such a horrible plight. Blame yourself for the state of you world you must not, despite what many may think.” Aang: “Yes, I know that, I was hoping you wouldn’t think otherwise.” Mace: “Aang, we would never encourage you to take part in a conflict you were too young to get involved with, even if you were the most powerful being of any world.” Obi-wan: “Yes and as I have mentioned earlier, if the monks of your temple hadn’t acted too soon like they did, the world would have waited several years for the war to end instead of an entire century. Then, perhaps, many good people like Katara and Zuko would have never suffered like they did.” Kit: “You’re a good kid, Aang. The monks of your temple have raised you well.” Plo Koon: “It must have been a difficult step to take considering that you were raised in a pacifistic society and was forced to abandon the ways of your people to protect and save the world from such horrific destruction.” Aang: “You’re right, it was.”

Aang placed his hand on his fist, held them in front of him and bowed. Aang: “Thank you for understanding, masters.” Yoda: “All of the Benders we have seen and spoke with. Spoken with the Avatar, we finally have. The non-bending warriors we wish to meet up and speak with.” Obi-wan: “Allow me to escort my good friend, Aang, out.” Mace: “As you wish, Master Kenobi.”

Obi-wan got up and walked towards Aang. They then walked out together.

Back in the other room, the rest of the benders and warriors as well as Anakin, Ahsoka and Padme sat and waited for the meeting to be over. Soon enough, Obi-wan walked in with Aang. Padme: “How did it go?” Obi-wan: “The same as the others. They seem pleased with their stories and they show no sign of disliking young Aang here.”

Katara, sitting on a sofa nearby, got up and walked up to Aang. Katara: “Are you alright, Aang?” Aang: “Yeah, I’m fine. Those Jedi guys seemed very nice. They didn’t bite and they didn’t make me flinch, not even once.” Zuko: “They were able to speak with each of us, except for Sokka and Suki.” Obi-wan: “Yes, well, they would like to speak with those 2 next. I think Sokka should go first. He seems like he has a lot to say to them.” Anakin: “I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on him.”

Sokka made another irritated look on his face, then walked into the chamber of the Jedi Council. Obi-wan watched as he walked in. Obi-wan: “Sokka, wait up!”

He turned his attention towards Anakin. Obi-wan: “Honestly, Anakin, it wouldn’t kill you to be a little nicer to him.”

Obi-wan then followed Sokka into the chamber. Everyone stared at Anakin in a disappointing manner. Anakin: “What? I can hardly put up with him. He’s almost as irritating as Jar Jar.”

Sokka stood in the middle of the room as Obi-wan rushed over to his chair. Mace: “It is good of you to join us, Master Kenobi.” Obi-wan: “Don’t blame me for being so tardy. Sokka was too eager to even wait for me.” Mace: “No matter, let’s get started. Now then, you must be Sokka.” Sokka: “Yes, I am.” Mace: “You were born and raised in the same tribe as your sister Katara.” Sokka: “That’s right.” Mace: “Now, then, we have heard from your sister that both you and her were forced to grow up at a young age when the both you lost your mother.” Sokka: “Yes…"

Anakin stood near the door and listened in as Sokka spoke. Sokka: "After our mother died, Katara and I did everything we could to take care of ourselves. Katara filled in for mom; she did most of her chores, she took care of me, she even took on a lot of our mother’s responsibilities. She became very motherly towards me even though I was older than her. She was always there for me and I tried to be a good big brother to her; trying to protect her. I never wanted anything to happen to her after we lost our mother. That’s why I’m always scared for her. I really love my sister a lot and I always want to be there for her when she needs me.”

For a brief moment, Anakin was actually touched. Kit: “I don’t think Katara could have ever asked for a better brother considering that she already has you.” Yoda: “Touching your story is, grateful young Katara should be to have someone like you around.” Sokka: “Great…I have no idea what you just said.”

Anakin slapped himself on the forehead. Anakin: “(whispering) Sokka…” Mace: “Thank you for you time. It is greatly appreciated.” Sokka: “Thank you for listening; it makes me feel better.” Kit: “Go back to your sister; I believe we understand now more than earlier how important it is for you to be with her.”

Sokka nodded walked out of the room. Along the way, he ran into Anakin, who was standing a little further away from the door than earlier. Anakin stood and stared at Sokka in a less irritating manner. Sokka looked up to him, a little annoyed. Sokka: “What?” Anakin: “Uh…nothing…it’s nothing, at all.”

Sokka continued staring at him. He then shrugged his shoulders, turned around and walked away. Anakin looked to his side in a saddening manner; he then looked back at Sokka. Anakin: “Thank you for being there for Katara.”

Surprised, Sokka looked at Anakin. Sokka: “What did you just say?” Anakin: “I mean, yeah, I know, it’s very difficult to believe, but…I really think you are a better person than I let on. I hope she considers herself to be very lucky to have someone like you for a brother.” Sokka: “Gee, Anakin, that was the nicest thing I’ve ever heard from you.” Anakin: “Yeah, well, don’t get too comfortable with stuff like that. I wouldn’t like having any of this going around.”

Sokka smiled in a conceited manner. Sokka: “Oh, don’t worry. I’ll make sure no one knows that you went all soft on me.”

He turned back around and walked away. Anakin: “Hey, what is that suppose to mean?” Sokka: “Oh…nothing…”

Sokka chortled under his breath. Anakin stared at him in an irritated manner. At that time, Obi-wan stepped out. Obi-wan: “Suki, you’re up next. They’re waiting to speak with you lastly.” Suki: “Be right there.”

Suki walked into the room with Obi-wan. 

Suki stood in the middle of the room as where her friends earlier. Mace: “So, you’re a Kyoshi Warrior, as they call you in your world?” Suki: “Yep, named after the great Avatar Kyoshi.” Kit: “Avatar…Kyoshi?” Suki: “Uh, huh, she was one of Aang’s past lives.”

Each of the members of the counsel looked at each other in a perplexed manner. Obi-wan: “Now, we have already discussed the Avatar and his reincarnation.” Mace: “Ah, yes, well…even so, it’s still very hard for us to comprehend. Regardless, this Avatar Kyoshi…what are your impressions of her?” Suki: “I look up to the founder of my home of Kyoshi Island. She herself created the island to protect us from any invaders. She is a well respected lady and the people of my island look up her and her incarnations as idols.” Mace: “Yes, that much we understand. Now then, about your…Kyoshi Warrior ways, what sort of fighting styles are involved in your group?” Suki: “Well, we live by a special code and a fighting system that was inspired and taught by Avatar Kyoshi, herself.”

Suki pulled out her fans and held them out. Suki: “We follow the same dress code and fighting styles since the day the warriors were founded. Our fighting styles include using our enemies’ own strengths against them. They are very rare techniques that very little outsiders know about. Knowing that she wasn’t going to be around forever, Avatar Kyoshi founded the Kyoshi Warriors to ensure that there will always be people around to protect the island long after her departure. I, myself, have been training to become a warrior since I was 8 years old. Many people don’t believe that girls make good warriors, but I aim to prove them wrong, even if I have to take them on myself. I think it's safe to say that I’m a girl of many surprises.”

Each of the members of the Jedi Council looked at each other. Mace: “I think we’ve heard enough for now. You’re free to return to your friends.”

Suki bowed. Suki: “Thank you for having me here. I’m really looking forward to hearing what you think of me and my friends.”

She turned around and walked out. Mace: “Obi-wan, we would like to discuss the terms of what we have heard from these kids. Why don’t you step out and stay with them until we have made our final decision?” Obi-wan: “We will await your final terms eagerly.”

Obi-wan got up and walked out.
          
Meanwhile, back outside the chamber, Suki and Obi-wan reunited with their friends. Suki: “So, what do you think? Did we make a good impression on them?” Aang: “It seemed like we did, but I’m not even sure of what to think.” Obi-wan: “I’m sure you kids did just fine.” Katara: “I hope so. I mean what if they think badly of us and decided that we can’t be trusted?” Anakin: “Who cares!?! So what if the Council decides you can’t be trusted!?! We know you, they don’t! We’ve spent hours talking to you, they didn’t! We fought along side of you, they haven’t! If ensuring our trust towards you means going against the Counsel, then forget them!” Obi-wan: “Anakin, are you more than willing to defy the Jedi Order just to work with these kids?” Anakin: “You better believe it!” Obi-wan: “Well…for once, I’m with you.” Anakin: “What?” Obi-wan: “You’re right; we know them better then the Council. That’s more than enough to convince me.” Ahsoka: “Same here. I'm willing to always stand by you guys, even if the council is opposed to it.” Katara: “You would do that for us? But, what will happen to you? What if you guys were banished from the Jedi Order or something?” Ahsoka: “So what? You saved our lives, you’re the only ones who can fight off those Heartless. If the Jedi Council and the rest of the Order refuse to see that, then I wouldn’t want any part of them anymore.” Zuko: “Are you guys sure about this? I don’t want you guys to ruin your lives for our sake.” Ahsoka: “It’s OK, Zuko. You don’t need to worry about us. It’s no big deal.” Anakin: “Besides, it can’t be any worse than what’s happening to us now.” Ahsoka: “Then it’s unanimous.”

She held her hand out in front of her. Ahsoka: “I will fight by your side, no matter what.” Obi-wan: “As will I.”

Obi-wan placed his hand on top of Ahsoka’s. Obi-wan: “I will aide you in your battle however I can; that is a promise.”

Anakin then placed his hand on top of Obi-wan’s. Anakin: “I’m in! There’s no way you’re leaving me out of this fight.”

Each of the Benders stood spellbound. Katara: “OK, then. So be it.”

Katara placed her hand on top of Anakin’s. Everyone else followed as well. Aang placed his hand on top next, then Zuko, after that comes Toph, then Sokka and then Suki. Padme: “Don’t forget about me.”

Padme then placed her hand on top of all of them. Padme: “I will take part in this, as well.” Katara: “Thank you, all of you. I don’t know how we’ll ever repay you.” Anakin: “Think nothing of it. We’re more than glad to help.” Ahsoka: “This is our home. We need to do everything we can to defend it.” Obi-wan: “Well, looks as though we’re in this together.”

Everyone in the room smiled. Toph: “Aw, don’t get all soft on me, already, you guys.”

Everyone in the room laughed. Sokka: “So, does this mean that you guys are now members of Team Avatar?” Obi-wan: "Team…Avatar." Katara: "It's…the name of the group that Sokka had decided on." Sokka: "So, how about it, you guys? You part of the the team?" Anakin: “Whoa! Hold on! Let’s not get any funny ideas!” Ahsoka: “Team Avatar, it is.” Anakin: “What?” Sokka: “Terrific! So it’s settled. We are Team Avatar! 4 Benders! 3 Jedi! 2 Warriors! 1 Senator! Team Avatar! Let’s hear it!” Ahsoka: “Alright!” Anakin: “How do I get myself involved in these shenanigans?”  Obi-wan: "Well, you said so, yourself, you did not want to be left out of this, so…" Anakin: "I just had to say it, didn't I?"

Later on, all 4 benders as well as Sokka and Suki stood in the middle of the Jedi Council Chamber. Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme stood on the side. Yoda: “Appreciative we are to have you here. Heard from each and every single one of you individually we have.”

Sokka whispered to Aang. Sokka: “ I still have no idea what he just said.”

Suki shushed him; Anakin placed his hand on his forehead in shame. Mace: “What Master Yoda is trying to say is we thank you for being here. We heard from each of you, you told us a little about yourself and from we have heard, we have found that each of you consist of determination towards each of your goals." Sokka: "Now, why didn't you just say that!?!"

Sokka was struck on a lower part of his body. Anakin kept his hand on his forehead as he shook his head, frustrated. Mace: “We have also heard that each of you have struggled through different forms of strife, but despite that, you have shown that you were able to set them aside and accomplish so much. Katara, you have suffered a great lost when the Fire Nation killed your mother but you managed to endure the grief and become the Waterbender you always wanted to be and the kind, caring person who takes care of her friends and brother. Toph, your parents refused to see you for who you are; they were even determined to lock you away and prevent you from reaching your full potential for their own selfish purposes, but you broke through those barriers of your own disability and belittlement and strive to go beyond them. Zuko, you have struggled and suffered through your nation’s treachery and corrupt ways and your twisted family’s constant belittlement of your usefulness. You were probably the one who struggled the most, but your determination to make something of yourself, to prove to everyone that you weren’t a failure paid off a lot. Although it wasn’t an easy task, you made it all worthwhile and became better than you had ever hoped. Aang, we know how much you didn’t want to become the Avatar but you manage to understand how much your world needed you, how much your friends needed you and embraced you destiny as the Avatar to protect everything and everyone you care about. Sokka, you grieved over the loss of your mother just as much as your sister Katara did, but you were more than willing to do anything to protect your sister. Suki, despite having so many people look down upon you, you excelled to become the type of warrior no one who ever believe you would be. We are proud to have met each and every one of you. We have come to a decision. We do not see anything in the Jedi Code stating that we are not allowed to have outsiders aide us in our battles but the code does indicate that we must do whatever we can to protect everything and everyone and considering that our survival, even more so, our existence is on the line, we have no other choice but to bestow upon you our full trust in eradicating the new threat that has penetrated our galaxy.” Yoda: “Counting on you to fight off the strange, new creatures we are, our full support you have.”

Aang enclosed his hand into his fists, held them both in front of him and bowed. Aang: “Thankful, we are. Grateful, I am.”

Yoda smiled. Sokka and Aang whispered to each other. Sokka: “Hey, Aang, I didn’t know you knew how to speak like that short, green, pointy eared, shrivelly guy?” Aang: “I didn’t, I just guessed.”

Mace Windu then turned his attention towards Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme. Mace: “We’re placing each of you in charge of these kids. Understand everything you can about their world, their fighting styles, their way of life, how they live, how they thrive, learn more about this bending of theirs, obtain wisdom from them and teach them everything about our world and everything that comes with it.”

Mace then turned back towards the benders. Mace: “As for you kids, if you’re going to stay here, then you’re going to have to learn how to fight against our enemies. There is an empty building that sits in between the Senate Skyscraper and the Jedi Temple. We will setup a training program for each of you in that building. Just let us know what you need and we will bring them to you.” Kit: “It has been an honor to speak to all of you and to have you come to our aid.” Plo Koon: “We wish each of you nothing but the best and may the force be with you, all of you.” Kit: “Farewell, my young friends.” Katara: “See ya and thank you for everything.”

The Benders and warriors turned around and walked out of the chambers. Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme walked out with them.

They soon returned to the first building they were at. Inside, they approached a large, round table containing a large feast. Katara sat next to both Anakin and Aang. Suki sat in between Sokka and Toph as Toph sat next to Obi-wan. Padme sat next to Anakin as Ahsoka sat next to both her and Obi-wan and lastly, Zuko sat next to Aang. Sokka, of course, had already rushed over the table and sat down as soon as he spotted a large plate filled with several drumsticks. Sokka: “MEEEEAAAAT!!!”

He then grabbed on to a few of them and wolfed them down. Anakin, of course, became annoyed by Sokka’s grossly, immense appetite. Katara: “Yeah, Sokka loves meat.” Anakin: “Gee, really? I hardly noticed!” Katara: “Anakin.”

At that time, Jar Jar sat next to Sokka, annoying him by grabbing everything he sees. Zuko, who sat on the other side of Jar Jar, had a surprised look on his face when Jar Jar was doing the same to him. Sokka: “Really!?! Do I need to sit next to this guy!?!” Anakin: “I don’t see what’s wrong with it.”

Sokka groaned as he made an irritated look on his face then took another bite out of one of the drumsticks. Sokka: “(muttering) At least the meat is still good.” Suki: “Can you believe it, you guys? The Jedi Council really trusts us.” Katara: “I know, it’s like we’re honorary members of the Republic.” Anakin: “Well, you did hear what Master Windu just said, we don’t really have a choice in the matter.” Toph: “At least he acknowledges that we’re the last hope against the Heartless threat.” Anakin: “Yeah, true.” Padme: “Well, I’m glad you guys are here; not only is there someone who can finally take care of this threat but more than that, I’m so glad to have met each and everything single one of you. You’re all such great people and you have so much to offer.” Anakin: “Except Sokka, that is.”

Sokka made another irritated look on his face. Obi-wan: “Well, I’d say this has been a very productive day. Not only did we have our first ever victory against the Heartless but I think making new friends was even more valuable. I am also thankful to have each and every single one of you here.” Aang: “Thank you, Master Kenobi. We’re thankful to be here, too.”

Obi-wan smiled. Anakin looked over towards Aang and noticed his empty plate. Anakin: “Aang, aren’t you going to eat anything?” Aang: “Huh? Oh, uh…I don’t think there’s anything here for me.” Anakin: “What are you talking about? There’s a lot of food here. Padme’s personal chefs really went through a lot of trouble just to make all of this.” Aang: “Um…not to sound ungrateful or anything but isn’t there anything here that’s not meat?” Anakin: “You don’t…like meat?”

Aang shook his head. Katara: “Unlike Sokka, Aang’s a vegetarian. He doesn’t eat any meat of any kind.” Aang: “It’s part of my culture. The monks taught me to respect all life, so we never eat any kind of animal.” Anakin: “Oh, I think I understand.” Ahsoka: “Perhaps a healthy salad will best suit you?” Aang: “Uh, yeah, could you pass one over to me, please?” Ahsoka: “Sure.”

Ahsoka used her Force abilities and moved the salad closer to Aang. Aang: “Thanks, Ahsoka.” Ahsoka: “Anytime.”

Using his Airbending abilities, Aang created a cyclone in the salad bowl and transferred the salad on to his plate, then started eating it. Obi-wan: “Could anyone pass the biscuits over, wherever they are?”

Toph stomped the ground, launching the bread basket into the air, she held out her left hand as the basket landed into it then handed the basket over to Obi-wan. Toph: “Here you go.” Obi-wan: “Oh! Thank you, Toph.” Katara: “Who here would like to have some 5 flavored soup?”

Everyone sitting at the table raised their hands. Katara then bend the soup from a pot then divided and flung each portion into everyone’s bowls. Anakin: “I could get use to this.”

Padme then turned her attention towards Zuko. Padme: “Zuko, you seem awfully quiet. Care to tell us what’s on your mind?”

Zuko was silent for a bit. Zuko: “At least a year ago, I never would have thought that I would end up at a place like this, surrounded by so many good people. All I was ever fixated on then was finding the Avatar to reclaim my honor; my life hasn’t exactly been easy. For as long as I can remember, my father has always seen me as worthless, that I would never amount to anything because I could never live up to his expectations. He lost faith in me entirely and turned to my sister, Azula.” Toph: “Oh, yeah, her, she was a total psycho.” Padme: “Now, why would your father favor your sister over you?” Zuko: “She was a Firebending prodigy, she was as cold-blooded and ruthless as the rest of our nation; an ideal heir to the throne.” Sokka: “And a complete and total psycho.” Toph: “Uh, I just said that.” Sokka: “I know, but saying it once just isn't enough.” Toph: “Oh, right, OK, good point.” Zuko: “My father said she was born lucky, he said I was lucky to be born.”

Padme held her head down and shook it. Padme: “Oh, how disappointing.” Ahsoka: “Well, I’m lucky to have met you, Zuko. You’re a truly phenomenal person and your resilience is truly inspiring.” Obi-wan: “I agree with Ahsoka on this. You have excelled far beyond any expectations I had on you. All of you.” Zuko: “My strife has put me through so much, even beyond my breaking point but I never gave up, and now, I’m sitting right next the Avatar, being part of his group as one of his friends. The only thing that would have made this better is for me to have done this earlier. I’m really happy to be here with you guys.” Ahsoka: “And we’re glad to have you here.” Padme: “I second that.” Obi-wan: “Here, here.” Anakin: “Whoever your father was, he really missed out on how amazing you’ve become. You’ve earned my respect and whoever this Azula person is, I hope she had what was coming to her.” Padme: “So do I, she sounds like a horrible person.” Zuko: “More than that, but more to the point, I could have never asked for a better group of friends; the people whom I would be honored to call my real family. And here’s to you guys. Anakin, Obi-wan, Ahsoka, Padme.”

Jar Jar still made a ton of commotion next to Zuko. Zuko: “Oh, and uh…Jar Jar.”

Everyone laughed. Sokka: “You, know, I’d considered Jar Jar to be a better person than Azula.” Anakin: “Ditto!” Jar Jar: “Mesa food isa too cold.” Zuko: “Here, let me try something.”

Zuko took Jar Jar’s food; he then covered it with another plate. With his Firebending abilities, heated up the plates and warm up the food. He then handed it back to Jar Jar. Zuko: “Don’t touch the plate; it could be too hot.”

Jar Jar took one bite out of his food. Jar Jar: “Thisa really good! Yousa good cook!” Zuko: “Nah! I just reheated your food, that’s all.”

Padme raises her glass. Padme: “I would like to propose a toast to new friends and hopefully putting an end this Heartless threat, once and for all.” Obi-wan: “I’ll raise my glass to that.”

Everyone then raised their glasses and then dropped them back down. Katara: “If it’s alright with everyone, I would like to propose a toast of my own.”

Katara raised her glass again. Katara: “Here’s to Shmi Skywalker and the best thing that’s ever happened in her life: you, Anakin.” Anakin: “You really think so?”

Katara nodded. Anakin: “Well then, in that case…”

Anakin raised his glass. Anakin: “Here’s to Kya, wife, mother and hero of the Southern Water Tribe.”

He then held his glass closer to Katara. Anakin: “And to the last Waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe.”

Katara smiled at him and then banged her glass against his. The 2 of them smiled at each other. Padme: “It’s strange; we’ve just met you today and yet, I feel as though I’ve known you guys my whole life.” Toph: “So, what’s in store for us, next?” Obi-wan: “Well, we plan on taking you around the planet and show you the basics of what our world is like.” Toph: “Really? You are?” Padme: “Sure but perhaps tomorrow. You guys have already done enough for today.” Suki: “Alright! I can’t wait till tomorrow! I’m so excited!” Aang: “I know! We get to learn so much about this galaxy and everything that this dimension has to offer.” Anakin: “Sure and judging by how you guys were with that automatic door, you kids have a lot to learn.” Suki: “Don’t worry about us, Master Skywalker; we can handle ourselves just fine.” Anakin: “Oh, it’s not you that I’m worried about, Suki; it’s your boyfriend over there.” Sokka: “Yeah, yeah, that’s great, could someone pass the barbecue sauce?”

Anakin tossed the barbecue sauce directly towards his face. Sokka: “Hey! I said pass the barbecue sauce, not throw it!” Anakin: “Sorry, I didn’t think you would recognize the difference.”

Sokka made another irritating look on his face. Padme: “Perhaps after we’re done with dinner, I could show these kids to their room?” Obi-wan: “Sure, that would sound great.”

After dinner, Padme brought the bender kids to a large bedroom. Inside, there were 6 beds: 3 on 1 side, closest to 3 tall windows and 3 on the other side up against a wall. There was also another doorway, preferably leading to a closet. Padme: “This will be your room during your stay here on Coruscant.”

As they continued into the room, the girls took the beds on the side with the windows and the guys took the other side. On the girls’ side, Toph took the bed closest to the exit, Katara took the middle bed and Suki took the bed at the far end of the room near the closet door. On the guys’ side, Zuko took the bed near the exit, across from Toph. Aang took the middle bed, across from Katara and Sokka took the bed at the very end near the closet, across from Suki. Each of them tried out the beds that they have selected. Padme: “So, how do you like it?”

Sokka fell on top of his bed and laid down on it. Sokka: “I think it’s great.”

At that time, Anakin and Obi-wan stepped in. Obi-wan: “How are our young friends enjoying their new bedroom?” Padme: “They seem to like it.”

They observed as each of the kids were checking on the beds that they chose. Toph pushed down on her before sitting down on it. Toph: “It’s a little overstuffed, but I think I can manage.”

Katara sat on her bed. Katara: “Well, I like it. I bet we would have a perfect view of the sunrise from here.” Padme: “You do. That’s why I picked this room, especially.” Aang: “It must be incredible. You guys must live like this all the time.” Anakin: “More or less.” Padme: “It does have some of its perks, living here on Coruscant, but there is also a lot of strife involved, otherwise, yeah, it is kind of nice.”

Padme looked over to Zuko, who was standing next to his bed. Padme: “Zuko? Is there anything wrong?”

Zuko looked over towards Padme. Zuko: “Hm? Oh, no, everything’s fine. I just haven’t lived like this in a long time since we were…pulled away from our home. Even after the war is over, there’s always something that pulls us away from nice stuff like this.” Suki: “Well, I’m looking forward to having a real good night sleep for the first time in a very long time. What do you say to that, Sokka?”

Suddenly, everyone heard a loud snoring noise coming from Sokka. They looked over and noticed that he was already asleep; he was snoring very loudly. Anakin placed his hand on his forehead and groaned. Katara: “Sokka has the right idea. It’s been a long day. We should...probably call it a night.” Padme: “OK, then, good night, everyone. See you in the morning.” Katara: “OK, then. Good night, Padme.”

Padme walked out of the room. Obi-wan: “We should probably go. Anakin, aren’t you coming?”

Anakin looked over and still noticed Sokka snoring away. Anakin: “Sure, anything to get away from that noise. Good night, everyone.” Katara: “Good night, Anakin, I hope to see you bright and early.” Toph: “As if that’s possible.”

Anakin and Obi-wan walked out of the room. Obi-wan walked ahead while Anakin stood and stayed as he observed Ahsoka approach him. Ahsoka: “So, how did the Benders enjoy their new room?” Anakin: “They like it, just fine. One of them already fell asleep.” Ahsoka: “Well, that’s great.” Anakin: “Yeah. Get some rest, snips. We have busy day tomorrow.” Ahsoka: “Sure thing. Good night, Master.”

Ahsoka walked off. Anakin stood for a little bit before walking in a different direction from her.

The next morning, Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme entered the Benders’ room to check up on them. When they entered, they saw that almost all of them were already awake. Padme: “Oh! You guys are awake, already?” Katara: “Yes, the moment I saw that sunrise hitting my face, it was so beautiful; I just couldn’t fall back asleep.” Ahsoka: “Well, did you guys enjoy your sleep?” Aang: “Sure, that was first time in a long while that we followed an actual sleep schedule, ever since the Heartless attacked our home.” Suki: “Well, I slept soundly throughout the night, but I’m just so excited about today, I just can’t sleep anymore. We get to learn so much about your world!” Ahsoka: “Same here, I almost had a hard time falling asleep last night.” Katara: “Well, it’s obvious that we’re all ready about starting this day.”

Just then, they heard the sound of snoring. They looked over and found that Sokka was still asleep. The noise itself went on for a while, but everyone noticed it just then. Anakin slapped himself on the forehead and groaned. Obi-wan looked at Anakin, Anakin slumped over and let out a dejected sigh. Anakin: “I’ll handle it.”

Anakin walked up to Sokka, grabbed him, lifted him off the bed and shook him. Sokka: “AH! OK! OK! I’m awake!”

He dropped Sokka onto the floor. Obi-wan: “Does your brother do this often, Katara?” Katara: “Yes, quite a lot, actually. Sokka likes to sleep in.”

Just then, they heard Toph moaned. They looked over and saw her toss and tumble. Toph: “Would you guys keep it down? It’s too early…”

Katara looked up at the others, then walked over towards Toph. Katara: “Come on, Toph, it’s time to get up.”

Toph tumbled away from Katara and went back to sleep. Aggravated, Katara pulled the covers off. Katara: “Come on! Don’t do this to us again!” Toph: “Leave me alone…” Katara: “Hey! Don’t be rude! These people were nice enough to offer us a place to sleep. You should at least show them some respect.”

Toph sat up almost immediately. Toph: “That easy for you to say! How could you possibly get any sleep with Sokka’s snoring keeping you up half the night!?!” Anakin: “Good question.” Toph: “I mean, sheesh! Someone really needs to put a muzzle on him!” Anakin: “I’m sure we can work on something like that.” Aang: “Well, I didn’t have any trouble. I slept well, like a baby moose lion. I’m ready to get this day started.”

Aang ascended off of his bed with the use of his Airbending and lands in front of Padme, Ahsoka and Obi-wan. Padme then looked towards Zuko. Padme: “Zuko, did you enjoy your sleep?”

Zuko looked at Padme. Zuko: “Yes, it was nice. I haven’t slept like that in a long time.” Padme: “Well, glad to hear it.”

Zuko placed his fist on the palm of his hand and bowed. Zuko: “Thank you, everyone. This was very kind of you.” Ahsoka: “You’re welcome, Zuko.”

Zuko smiled and walked out of the room. Katara: “Well, I’m raring to see what this day has for us. Where do we start?”

Suddenly, they heard the sound of someone’s stomach grumbling. They looked over and saw that it was Sokka’s. Sokka: “How about breakfast? I’m starving!”

Padme giggled a little. Padme: “Good idea.”

Later on, everyone had breakfast. They took very little time finishing up and getting themselves ready for the rest of the day. Sokka: “Thanks for the breakfast, everyone. That was good.” Anakin: “Glad you enjoyed it! I didn’t enjoy watching you eat it.” Katara: “OK, now that that’s over with, where do we start?”

Padme, Obi-wan, Anakin and Ahsoka looked at each other, and then back at the Benders. Padme: “Before we do anything, there’s something about our world that you must know. You may have noticed by now that not all of our residences are…well…humans.” Aang: “Actually, yeah, I did. Some of the people we met looked different from normal human beings.” Obi-wan: “I'm sure you kids have realized that one of us is, in fact, not a human.” Katara: “Hey, yeah, now that you mention it, I did. Ahsoka, you look very different from Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme. Your skin color is a very different color from a human being and the weird markings on your face. No offense.” Ahsoka: “None taken.” Toph: “I’ve noticed that, too. You feel like a human; you even have the same body structure, but there was something funny about you that made me suspect that there was something off about you, but hearing that you’re not human, it makes sense.” Ahsoka: “You have a point, Toph. We do share the same qualities in so many ways.” Sokka: “She does look very much human with her eyes and the rest of her body, but that strange, white and blue patterned thing on top of your head that looks like a weird cap. It’s your hair, right?” Ahsoka: “Well…yeah, kind of. It’s called a tekku; they’re also known as hair-tails, only 2 species have these types of “hair”, there’s my species, which are called Togruta and then there are the Twi’leks; their hair tails look much different from ours.” Sokka: “Huh, interesting, I’ve always had this urge yank that thing off, just to see if you can remove it…” Toph: “I don’t think that’s a good idea. The vibrations emanating off of her tell me that it’s completely attached to her head.” Aang: “So, it's like pulling someone’s hair off?” Toph: “More like severing off someone’s body parts, as in, you know, amputation?” Aang: “Ew…” Toph: “It’s a part of her, just like how our hair, skin and limbs are a part of ourselves.” Katara: “Well, human or not, I’m glad to have met you, Ahsoka, you’re a very interesting person.” Ahsoka: “Thank you, Katara. That really appreciate that.”

Katara smiled. Sokka: “And what about Jar Jar? What is he, some sort of weird, amphibious, horse thing with floppy ears? I can’t even come up with a name for someone like him!” Padme: “Jar Jar’s species is known as Gungan, they are an aquatic race that resides on the same home world as me.” Katara: “And both you and Jar Jar are representatives of Naboo; you told us that yesterday.” Padme: “That’s right, Katara.” Sokka: “And some of those Jedi guys were also non humans, like that green skinned, guy with large, black eye and that weird hair, I think it’s his hair but it’s probably a hair-like material covered in skin, and then there’s that other guy with the pinkish skin, that weird shaped head and that mask on his face.” Ahsoka: “You mean Masters Kit Fisto and Plo Koon? Yes, they’re also non humans.” Sokka: “And what about that green, shrivelly guy with the large, pointy ears who talks funny? Any ideas on what he is?” Ahsoka: “You mean Master Yoda? No, his race is so ancient that no one really knows or remembers what species he is.” Aang: “Not to be master of the obvious or anything, but all of this is normal, right?” Obi-wan: “Yes, Aang, it is very much normal; much like how bending is in your world.” Aang: “But just how many different species are there?” Padme: “There are thousands, actually. Each one inhabits a different planet. Some species are named after the planet they’re from.” Aang: “Really? What about the humans? Where do they live? Do they have a planet of their own?” Anakin: “No…not really. The humans live on different planets. I lived on Tatooine. Padme was born on Naboo.” Sokka: “Really? I never knew that.” Toph: “So, what planet are you from, Obi-wan?” Obi-wan: “Me? Well, not many people ask me that question but if you must know, my home world goes by the name of Stewjon.” Toph: “Oh, man! All this talk of other planets has gotten me seriously stoked! I can’t wait to bend earth from more than 1 planet and feel how each one vibrates! This is really exciting!” Obi-wan: “Glad you think that way, Toph.” Anakin: “Well, then, shall we get started on teaching you kids about these planets? Let’s start off here. This planet that we’re on is called Coruscant; it is one out of a few planets that inhabit many different species.” Aang: “Yeah, I kind of figure that, with it being an entire city and all.” Katara: “So, do we get to meet more of these people?” Padme: “Of course, I can take you to the one place where we will be able to introduce you to a lot of those people face to face.” Suki: “Great! Let’s go!”

Later on, they arrived at the Senate building. From outside, they stood in a crowd of lots and lots of people. Each of the Benders and young fighters looked around in amazement to see so many people. They saw many different races and many other humans. Katara: “This is incredible! I’ve never seen so many different kinds of people!” Padme: “All of these people are representatives from different planets and star systems. They all come here from many regions of the Galaxy to debate over many different issues and try to negotiate on many different ideas. As of now, we are still debating on what we should do about this war. My hopes are to have everyone come to an agreement that would end it.” Katara: “But not many think that what you believe in will become helpful to them.” Padme: “Yes…unfortunately, that would be the truth.”

Just then, a strange, looking non-human male walked up to them. Man: “Is that you, Senator Amidala?”  

Padme looked over and spotted him. Everyone looked out and noticed him, too. Sokka freaked out the second he spotted him. Padme: “Uncle Farr! Hello! It is good to see you again!” Farr: “As am I.” Padme: “Everyone, this is Senator Onaconda Farr. Uncle Farr, these are a few new friends of ours.”

Senator Farr looked down at the Benders. Farr: “Well, hello there, nice to meet all of you.” Sokka: “You’re…you’re, you’re…some weird…looking…alien thing!” Anakin: “Sokka!” Farr: “It’s alright. I have never encountered anyone quite like you; your style of clothing is very unfamiliar to me, so I take it you’ve never seen anything like me before.” Katara: “Um…yeah, that’s right. We’re from another world. Your appearance is…very new to us.” Toph: “We heard from Padme that there are many different kinds of species besides humans. But…you feel very different from most human beings; a lot more than Ahsoka. Just what species are you?” Padme: “Uncle Farr a member of a species known as Rodian.” Farr: “I come from a distant planet called Rodia.” Aang: “Hey, their species are named after the planet.” Katara: “He’s one of those species you mentioned; the ones that are named after the planet they’re from.” Padme: “That’s right. He is a representative of his home world.” Aang: “Say, Padme, I was wondering, why do you call this guy your uncle? You know that you’re not even the same species as him.” Padme: “True, but the thing is Uncle Farr and I go way back. He’s always been like an uncle to me.” Farr: “I have known Senator Amidala since she was a little girl. I use to look after her quite a lot. Even then, I knew that she would eventually grow up to become one of the most influential women in the Galaxy.”

Padme smiled. Just then, they heard the crowd screaming all around them. Ahsoka: “What’s going on!?!”

They looked over and spotted several Heartless. Farr: “AH! It’s those creatures!”

Katara and her friend pulled out their Keyblades. Katara: “Heartless!” Sokka: “What? Here? Now?” Katara: “Padme, you, Anakin, Obi-wan and Ahsoka get everyone to safety. We’ll handle these things.”

Padme nodded. Padme: “Let’s go, Uncle Farr!”

Padme led Senator Farr out of the way. Anakin, Obi-wan and Ahsoka ran out in different directions as the Benders and their warrior friends fought against the Heartless. They eliminated each of the Heartless one by one. As they fought, everyone stood around and watched them. Another familiar man watched from above, in a secluded room. From inside the building, several others watched; one of them being one other familiar man. Anakin had both hands behind his back as he watched. Senator Farr took 1 step forward, Anakin then held his hand out in front of Farr. Anakin: “Stay back, Senator. These kids are the only ones who can take on these creatures.” Ahsoka: “You mean the Heartless, master?” Farr: “Heartless?” Obi-wan: “Yes, that’s what the creatures are called.”

Little by little, the threat seemingly dissipated, but then more Heartless began showing up, only they were larger. Sokka: “Oh, come on, you’ve got to be kidding me!” Zuko: “Sokka! This isn’t the time for another one of your rambling!” Suki: “He’s right, we have to keep fighting!” Sokka: “How did I get myself into this?”

They went on and continued fighting on. It was not long before the Heartless outnumbered them. Everyone watched in horror as the Benders struggled just to stay in the fight. From inside the building, people kept on watching. One of them stepped back and ran off. Farr: “Isn’t anyone going to do something!?!”

Anakin pulled out 1 hand from behind his back, holding a small device. Anakin: “Already on it.”

He pressed a button on the device. From above, many large containers were brought down. As they crash landed on the battle field, large piles of rocks of many sizes poured out, as well as many gallons of water. Farr: “What…what did you do!?!” Anakin: “I gave them everything they needed.” Farr: “But…all you did was brought down large containers of rocks…and water.” Anakin: “Trust me, that’s all they’ll need.”

At that time, Katara spotted the water that was brought down. She smiled, stood near the water, then as she waved her arms around, she bend the water towards the Heartless. Everyone but Anakin, Obi-wan, Padme and Ahsoka became startled. Toph felt several rocks near her location and smiled. Toph: “Thanks, Anakin!”

She then did her stances and moved the rock towards the Heartless in an offense style. Aang: “It looks like these Heartless are becoming tougher.” Zuko: “Too bad for them, because I’ve been holding back. Let’s unleash our full power!” Aang: “You’ve just read my mind.”

Zuko and Aang then began to bend, too. Zuko shot out several fireballs from his fists and unleashed flare kicks and Aang created funnels with his hands. Everyone stood in awe on what they were witnessing. Farr: “What are these kids…?” Obi-wan: “These are a unique group of individuals with the ability to control and manipulate the elements to their will.” Anakin: “Where they come from, this is known as Bending.” Voice: “Senator Amidala!”

At that time, another familiar character came running towards them. Padme: “Senator Organa!” Organa: “I saw everything from inside the building. What is going on? What sort of kids are they?” Obi-wan: “Benders.” Organa: “Benders?” Obi-wan: “Yes, that’s what they’re called and there are many others quite like them from their world.” Organa: “These kids are from…another world?” Ahsoka: “That’s right and they were brought here to help us end the Heartless threat.”

Soon enough, the 2 senators spotted Sokka and Suki and noticed that they weren’t bending at all. Farr: “Hey, what about those 2? Why aren’t they doing what those other kids are doing, what was it you called it, again? Bending?” Anakin: “Who, those 2? They’re not Benders.” Organa: “Really? They’re incapable of such powers?” Farr: “Are those 2 from a separate world from the…uh, Benders?” Ahsoka: “Oh, no, they’re from the same universe, it’s just that some of their people don’t have those abilities. Some of them are actually warriors, much like those 2.” Obi-wan: “And incredibly talented ones at that.” Anakin: “Yeah, Suki, maybe. Sokka? Not so much.”

They continued fighting on. Just then, they noticed that some of the Heartless were going after the crowd. Seeing this, Zuko immediately rushed up to them, stood in between them and created a fire wall, separating the 2 group. The Heartless were chased off. Obi-wan: “Zuko! Don’t worry about protecting these people! Anakin, Ahsoka and I will handle that! Just take out those Heartless!”

Zuko nodded then went back to fighting the Heartless with the others. They soon eradicated all of the large Heartless. Toph: “OK, hopefully, that was the end of it.”

Shortly afterwards, several Neo Shadow Heartless showed up. Sokka screeched and ran off. He kept running until he approached Anakin then stood behind him while trembling. Anakin: “Sokka, what are you doing? Get back out there and fight off those Heartless!”

Sokka shook his head as he trembled. Aggravated, Anakin picked up Sokka and tossed him directly in front of him. Sokka looked up and saw one of the Neo Shadows lashing out towards him. He dodged the attack, then got up and ran away from it, screaming. Sokka: “KATARA! GET THESE NEO SHADOW THINGS AWAY FROM ME!!”

Katara looked out and watched as one of the Neo Shadows chased Sokka. Katara slashed her Keyblade once then rushed off to eliminate the Neo Shadow that was chasing her brother. Katara: “Seriously, Sokka, you really need to get over your fear of Neo Shadows.”

Sokka stood by and trembled as he held out his weapon. Katara: “Grr…for crying out loud!”

Katara spent much of her fight protecting Sokka from the Neo Shadows that were approaching him. Anakin got tired of watching and decided to jump into the fight. Obi-wan: “Anakin!”

He then slashed each of the Neo Shadows one by one and drove them away with the use of his force powers. Anakin: “Don’t tell me your brother is afraid of Heartless!” Katara: “Only the pure bloods. There are several Heartless that don‘t have emblems on them and most of them are black; much like these Neo Shadows.”

Sokka still stood and trembled. Aang then stopped fighting and looked over towards Sokka. He then shook his head. Aang: “Not again.” Toph: “What is Sokka doing over there? Does he even know that we’re in the middle of a fight?” Aang: “I don’t think he could care less at the moment.”

Agitated, Toph took one swing of her Keyblade at one of the Neo Shadows. She then ran towards Sokka and slashed away at many more of the Neo Shadows. Sokka then ran off screaming. Anakin watched him run off with much irritation. Toph slashed on one more Heartless. Toph: “Don’t mind him; he’s like this every time we come across Neo Shadows.” Anakin: “Yeah, I kind of figured!”

More Neo Shadows came towards them. Katara, Toph and Anakin slashed at each of them. Sokka finally stopped running, then turned around and looked towards them. Sokka put away his weapon and watched them in sadness. Katara bend the water towards the Neo Shadows. She then attempted to pull all of the water into her Keyblade. But then, without warning, a Neo Shadow appeared and lashed out towards Katara. Sokka: “KATARA!”

Anakin looked over, he then drove the Neo Shadow away with the use of his Force powers. At that moment, Sokka became furious. He then pulled out his weapon and ran towards the Neo Shadow as he took it down. He then furiously went after every Neo Shadow and annihilated every single one he came across. Anakin looked over, greatly agitated. Anakin: “Oh, sure, now he decides to fight!”

Anakin then looked towards Katara, who was still lying on the ground after the blow. He then ran towards her and tended to her. Anakin: “Are you OK?”

Katara held her hand on her head and griped in pain. Katara: “Yeah, I’m fine. That Neo Shadow really took me by surprise.”

He then helped her back up to her feet. Anakin: “Can you still fight?”

She put her hand down and looked at Anakin, smiling. Katara: “Are you kidding me? It’ll take a lot more than that sneak attack to bring me down.”

Anakin was startled. He then smiled back at her. Anakin: “I…have to admit, Katara, you’re…pretty tough.”

She continued fighting. Aang then rushed towards her. Aang: “Katara! Are you alright?” Katara: “I’m fine, Aang.”

Aang rushed off and fought more of the Neo Shadows nearby. Katara: “Listen, I have a plan, but I need someone to keep the Neo Shadows away from me.” Anakin: “I don’t know, at this rate, Sokka might be able to eliminate them all.” Katara: “Even in his advanced rage, he can’t fight off all of them. Please, Anakin, you have to cover for me.” Anakin: “Alright. I’ll see what I can do.”

Anakin then attempted to hold back the Neo Shadows while Katara pulled all of the water into her Keyblade. Just then, another one was about to pull a fast one on him, but then Aang jumped in and intervened. Anakin was startled as he looked towards Aang. Anakin: “Uh…thanks, Aang.”

Aang looked at Anakin and smiled. Aang: “No problem.” Anakin: “Listen, I need you to help me keep these Heartless off of Katara, do you think you can do that?”

Aang looked away, a serious and stern look grew on his face. Aang: “It’s what I live for.”

Aang rushed over and slashed away at every Neo Shadow he came across. At that time, Anakin pushed away every single one of the Heartless that came near Katara. Just then, both and Sokka intervened and took out most of them. Toph: “I take it Katara has a plan.” Anakin: “You’d be correct and if her plan works, Sokka won’t have to worry about fighting any more of these Heartless for very long.” Toph: “Good! Let’s make sure she succeeds.” Anakin: “Of course.”

The 3 of them rushed off and kept fighting. Katara continued to pull all of the water into her Keyblade. Upon finishing, she held her Keyblade in front of her and with one swoop, she wiped out every single Neo Shadow. Everyone stood in silence.

As the Benders and warriors put away their Keyblades, Ahsoka, Padme and Obi-wan rejoined them along with Senators Farr and Organa. Padme: “Is everyone alright?” Katara: “Yeah, we’re fine. How are the senators? Were any of them attacked by those Heartless?” Padme: “No, you’ve managed to wipe them out before they could even get near anyone.” Ahsoka: “Thank goodness you guys were able to finish off those things.” Aang: “Yeah, it was a long battle, but we’ve managed to hang in there.” Obi-wan: “I think you kids did and fantastic job, especially you, Anakin. Way to run in there and nearly get yourself killed by those things.” Anakin: “Don’t pin any of that on me! I needed to step in after SOMEONE ran off screaming instead of staying in the fight!” Sokka: “Hey! I managed to return and fight those things…mostly.” Anakin: “We are going to have a long talk after all of this is over.”

Sokka folded his arms and groaned. At that moment, Senator Organa approached them as he applauded. Organa: “Bravo! That was quite a feat you kids have displayed.” Sokka: “Um…who are you?” Padme: “Everyone, I would like to introduce you to Senator Bail Organa; a good friend of mine. He is a representative of Alderaan. Senator Organa, these are our new friends, Katara, Toph, Zuko, Aang, Suki and this is Sokka, Katara’s brother.” Organa: “A pleasure to meet all of you. I must say, those fighting skills of yours were quite impressive. What was it they were called again? Bending?” Katara: “Yes, it’s very common where we come from.” Organa: “Yes, I have heard that you kids are from another world.” Padme: “We’re taking them around Coruscant to teach them about our world.” Katara: “It’s so amazing. I have never seen so many different kinds of people before.” Organa: “Yes, every representative from every star system is gathered here.” Toph: “Every representative, from every star system? Wow! That’s a lot of people!” Padme: “These kids were brought here to protect our galaxy from those ruthless creatures; they’re called Heartless.” Organa: “Well, I wish each of you the best of luck.” Katara: “Thank you, Senator Organa. We’ll…probably need it.” Farr: “I must say, you kids have my forever gratitude. You’re doing a great thing, sacrificing your time to help out several thousand strangers that you have never met before.” Suki: “Yes, well…actually, the longer we stay here, the less you guys seem like strangers.” Anakin: “Great, sorry to break up this little conversation, but we still have a lot more things we need to teach our young friends.” Padme: “Anakin is right. We need to show them around the senate so that we can teach them about many other things about our world.” Farr: “Ah, yes, well, don’t let us hold you back.” Katara: “You’re more than welcome to join us, senators.” Organa: “I would be honored to accompany the young, new friends of Senator Amidala.” Katara: “Great, let’s go.”

They walked around the senate building. Inside, they chatted with Senators Farr and Organa. Organa: “So, there’s an entire culture that’s based on these…bending abilities?” Padme: “Yes, they are from a unique world where a large group of people, who call themselves Benders, can control and manipulate each of the 4 elements to their will and that was exactly what you saw them do.” Farr: “I see, and what these…horrid creatures you call…Heartless?” Anakin: “Those creatures, from what our friends tell us, are not from they’re world or any particular world, at all.” Obi-wan: “They have unusual powers to cross in and out between dimensions. They can also ruin them with their presence.” Katara: “Our world is already at the brink of deterioration. We’re hoping to end the threat here before your world begins to deteriorate, as well.” Organa: “Well, you have our appreciation and our condolences, as well. We’re sorry for what’s happening to your home.” Farr: “Yes, we would hate to have the same thing happen to our homes. Please ensure that our world does not succumb to these creatures.” Katara: “You don’t need to worry about a thing, we’ll handle it.” Farr: “Thank you. Now then, about your world, tell me, what is it like?” Katara: “Well, to simply start out, our world is split into 4 nations: the Water Tribe, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation and the Air Nomads. It’s more than just Benders; there are also the spiritual aspects to it, such as many different beings from the spirit world. Some of them crossed over to our world from the Spirit World and manifest themselves in mortal forms.” Farr: “Oh, can you tell me of one of these spirits you know?” Katara: “Sure, there’s Aang here and he is the most important spirit of all, or at least the spirit, itself is contained within him.” Obi-wan: “Yes, that which we all know as the Avatar.”

Senator Farr seemed a bit startled. Farr: “The…Avatar?” Katara: “Yes, he is the spirit of our world manifested in the form of a human being. He is the protector of our world and the only human being who can control and wield all 4 elements.” Anakin: “That…kind of makes the Avatar special.” Katara: “There’s more than just that, he is also known as “The Bridge between our world and the Spirit World”.” Ahsoka: “I still don’t know what that means.” Aang: “It means that I can cross over between both worlds at will. I can even see my own past lives.” Organa: “Past lives?” Ahsoka: “The Avatar is an immortal spirit, so from what I can tell, when his human form dies, he is then reincarnated into the nation in this Avatar Cycle; which goes in a complete circle.” Farr: “So, how does this Avatar Cycle go?” Ahsoka: “Well, let’s see, if the Avatar dies as an Air Nomad, he is then born in the Water Tribe, if the Water Tribe Avatar passes on, he is then replaced with someone from the Earth Kingdom, if the Avatar from the Earth Kingdom perishes, then the Avatar is born as a member of the Fire Nation and if he goes, too, then he is reborn as an Air Nomad again. Did I get that right?” Katara: “Yes, that’s exactly how it goes.”

Ahsoka seemed very stoked. Ahsoka: “Terrific!” Sokka: “Yep, the Avatar Cycle is pretty much an endless circle that has been going around for many generations.” Farr: “Fascinating, truly fascinating!” Obi-wan: “Oh, I agree on that much, senator.” Toph: “We’re also capable of adapting our abilities to new surroundings. When in an unfamiliar environment such as this entire planet, we learn everything we can about it and find what we need to do to take advantage of it. Luckily, I learned how to bend metal like it’s earth.” Organa: “Well, you truly are a unique group of kids and I look forward to seeing more of these…bending abilities of yours, but it’s time for us to move on.” Farr: “Yes, we still have a lot more work to be taken care of.” Katara: “Sure thing, it was great meeting you Senator Organa and you too, Senator Farr.” Farr: “You too.” Organa: “Farewell, my friends and thank you again, for everything.” Zuko: “Farewell, senators, we look forward to seeing you again.”

They smiled and walked off. Aang: “Hopefully, we’ll be able to see them on their home world.” Toph: “Grrr! All this talk of other planets is seriously getting me pumped! I want to go to them now!” Ahsoka: “Maybe later, Toph. But right now, we still have lots more to see and do around here.” Padme: “Come on, let’s get moving.”

They walked along the hallways and saw many more people, especially some that were non-humans. Sokka looked at each of them with an awestruck look on his face. Sokka: “Whoa! I don’t think it really matters how much you guys prepare me, I still can’t get use to this.” Padme: “I know, it is a lot to take in, but you will, in time.” Katara: “Well, we did get use to Ahsoka.” Sokka: “I know that, but Ahsoka is very human-like, so, she was a lot easier to adjust to, but everyone else is…less than easy, like that guy over there who looks like an elk with 3 eyes.” Padme: “That’s Senator Kharrus. He is a representative of his home world, Kinyen, his species is called Gran.”
 
Katara pondered for a bit. Katara: “Gran, huh? I think I can remember that.”

Sokka looked over and saw a senator with 2, long hair tails growing out of their head. Sokka: “Hair tails…hey, guys, that person over there! They have hair tails, too.”

They looked over and saw the person, too. Sokka: “That person’s a Twi’lek, right?” Ahsoka: “That’s right, wow, Sokka, you’re really catching on.” Anakin: “Well, that, I don‘t think that happens very often with you.”

Sokka made another irritated look on his face. Ahsoka: “Oh, look, there’s my friend, Senator Chuchi. Hey, Chuchi, over here.”

Chuchi stopped to notice her. Chuchi: “Hm? Oh, Ahsoka, hi!”

She walked up towards everyone, she then stood along with them. Chuchi: “It is so good to see you again, Ahsoka.” Ahsoka: “You, too, how have you been?” Chuchi: “Oh, just the same old things. Hardly anyone would want to listen to a young senator, although some are acknowledging me, so that’s good, I guess.” Ahsoka: “Well, at least life isn’t boring for you.” Chuchi: “Yeah, life’s never boring when you’re a senator.” Ahsoka: “The same way with the Jedi.” Chuchi: “True.”

She then noticed the Benders. Chuchi: “Oh, you have some new friends.” Ahsoka: “Everyone, this is Senator Chuchi, she is a representative of Pantora.” Sokka: “She’s some sort of…blue skinned human-like person.” Ahsoka: “Right, she’s a Pantoran.” Aang: “Another species that’s named after the planet they’re from.” Sokka: “And with pink hair, too. Huh, weird.” Katara: “I’m guessing that’s normal for her species.”

Padme nodded. Padme: “As normal as it is for people of your world and their hair color.” Chuchi: “So, who are these other younger people?” Ahsoka: “These are our new friends. This is Katara, Aang, Zuko, Toph, Suki and Katara’s older brother, Sokka. They’re here to help us against the new threat that has plagued our galaxy recently.” Chuchi: “You mean those strange creatures, like the one that I saw outside; those kids were fighting them?” Anakin: “That’s right. They’re called Heartless.” Chuchi: “Heartless?” Obi-wan: “Yes, that’s what our young friends told us these creatures are.” Chuchi: “Oh, really? Well, I wish you a lot of luck. We all need it.” Katara: “Thank you, Senator Chuchi, that is much appreciated.”

Senator Chuchi smiled. Chuchi: “Well, I’d better get going, but it was nice meeting all of you.” Katara: “You too, Senator Chuchi.” Chuchi: “OK, bye.” Katara: “Goodbye, I hope we see you again.” Chuchi: “Same here. I look forward to hearing more about you.”

Senator Chuchi walked off. Katara: “Well, she was nice.” Ahsoka: “Yes, she is.” Suki: “So, where to next?” Padme: “Hm…would you kids like to see where we make our negotiations?” Aang: “Um…sure, I guess…judging by all of the senates from many different stars systems, I would say that this room you have your negotiations in is enormous.” Anakin: “Oh, you have no idea.”

They continued walking on until they reached a pod. Aang: “What’s that thing?” Padme: “It’s a pod, it's what we use to enter the chamber that we have our negotiations in. This pod is not only used for negotiations, it can also be used as a means of transportation.” Zuko: “Why is it important to have something like this?” Padme: “Oh, you’ll see.”

They all stepped on the pod, some of them sat down while other just stood. The pod then moved and entered the chamber. As it entered, all of the Benders, plus Sokka and Suki, stood in shock over the size of the room. Sokka: “WHOA! THIS PLACE IS HUGE!!!”

Sokka’s voice echo throughout the entire room. Katara: “Just look at this room!!!!” Padme: “This is the Grand Convocation Chamber. This is where every representative from every star system holds all of their sessions.” Katara: “This must be the largest room in the entire building!!!!” Padme: “You’re right, it is, in fact, THE largest room in the building.” Sokka: “Forget that!!!! This is the largest room of any building!” Anakin: “You’d be surprised.” Toph: “Whoa! I was able to feel out a massive empty void within this entire building, but I had no idea that it was an enormous room! How big is this place!?!” Padme: “It is 100 meters tall and holds over 1,024 pods.” Aang: “I can’t wrap my mind around how enormous this place is!” Sokka: “No kidding! There’s enough room for Aang to fly around!” Aang: “Hm, you’re right, there IS enough room for me to fly around.”

Aang jumped up, pulled out his Keyblade gliders and flew around the room. Suki: “I get the feeling that we’ll be using this room a lot.” Padme: “You may be right, Suki, there will probably be times when you guys need to present yourselves to the senate. It could take a lot of representations to get everyone in the galaxy to trust you like how me and my friends do.” Katara: “Yes, that much we understand.”

Aang returned into the pod. Afterwards, he looked towards the bottom of the center of the room and saw a large circle on the bottom. Aang: “Hey, what’s that?”

Padme looked down and spotted it. Padme: “That is where the Chancellor speaks to everyone in the senate.” Aang: “The Chancellor. Who’s he?” Padme: “Chancellor Palpatine? He’s the leader of the Senate; he’s the one who makes the final decisions in the votes.” Katara: “Chancellor

Palpatine?” Anakin: “Oh, yes, he’s a great guy, a good man, he gives out excellent advice, I think you kids would get along with him.” Toph: “Is this Palpatine guy…friendly?” Anakin: “Sure, he gets along with just about everyone, everyone who’s not a member of the Separatists, that is.” Katara: “Well, that’s no surprise. I would love to meet him.” Padme: “Sure, I can take you to him.”

They went on until they reach Chancellor’s office. They stepped into the Chancellor’s office. Inside, there was a large chair facing the window. Padme: “Hello? Chancellor Palpatine? It’s me Padme, Masters Anakin Skywalker and Obi-wan Kenobi are here too and we brought some new friends.”

The chair turned around and revealed a shriveled old, man in fancy looking clothes. Everyone in that universe recognizes him as Chancellor Palpatine. Palpatine: “Ah, hello, everyone, it’s good to see you again.” Padme: “It’s good to see you again, Chancellor.” Anakin: “Your Excellency.” Padme: “Everyone, this man is Chancellor Palpatine; he is a great man and a great hero in so many ways.” Katara: “Nice to meet you, Chancellor. I’m Katara; these are my friends, Aang, Toph, Zuko, Suki and my brother, Sokka.” Palpatine: “Ah, a pleasure to meet you. Any friend of the Jedi and Senator Amidala is a friend of mine.” Katara: “Thank you.”

Soon enough, Toph began to feel a little uneasy. Palpatine: “So, what brings you youngsters here from…first of all, where did you come from? You’re style of clothing, it’s very unfamiliar.” Padme: “They’re from another world.” Palpatine: “Oh, another world, you say? Well, then, what brings you here from your world?” Katara: “We were sent here to eliminate the Heartless threat that could possibly tear this world apart.” Palpatine: “Oh, dear, you don’t say? Would these…Heartless be…those horrid creatures that I saw you kids fighting outside a just few minutes ago?” Katara: “Yes, that’s right, unfortunately, our world is at the brink of deterioration because of those things. Our homes could be destroyed within a short period of time.” Palpatine: “Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that.”

He walked up to Katara and patted her on the back. Palpatine: “There, there, my dear, I’m sure everything will turn out for the better.” Katara: “Thank you, Chancellor, that was very kind of you.”

The Chancellor smiled at her. Sokka: “So, Chancellor, how is it that you’re a hero in so many ways?” Palpatine: “Well, that’s an excellent question, my boy, as you can see, I have saved these wonderful people so many times.” Sokka: “Oh, really? You don’t say.” Padme: “It’s true, such as when my home world was being overrun by the trade federation, I was taken to the senate, hoping they would plead my case, but the former Chancellor refused to hear me out because I didn’t have any proof, but I kept fighting back because I couldn’t stand letting my own people suffer, so the former Chancellor was kicked off the high chair and Chancellor Palpatine was elected. Since then, he has done so many wonderful things for us, but he really saved us that day by pleading my case with me and ruling in favor of me. That really helped me a lot.” Aang: “Gee, that sounds like a really interesting story, you’ve must have done a lot for Padme; you’re a really great guy.” Palpatine: “Yes, but enough about me, tell me about you kids.” Katara: “Gladly, we come from a world that’s split into…”

As they continued on, Toph felt dazed, faint and groggy, she then started to lose balance and near heaved. Palpatine: “Are you feeling alright, my dear?” Toph: “Yeah, fine, just fine, I need to step out.” Obi-wan: “I’ll step out with her, your Excellency.”

Obi-wan escorted Toph out of the room. Outside the room, Obi-wan stood with Toph. Obi-wan: “Toph, are you OK? You don’t look well, at all.” Toph: “I’m fine, it’s just…”

Toph pause for a bit. Obi-wan: “Yes?” Toph: “Look, promise to keep it between you and me but I felt something very strange in there.” Obi-wan: “OK, what is it?” Toph: “It’s that Palpatine guy, it’s the strangest thing, it’s likes…he’s there…but he’s not there. He keeps phasing in and out of my seismic senses, I don’t know why but it’s making me queasy.” Obi-wan: “Hm…you don’t say, we’ll keep this to ourselves for now, but I recommend you tell the Council about this when you believe you’re ready; I think they would be very interested to hear this.” Toph: “Well, if you say so.” Obi-wan: “Do you want to come in or you would prefer to wait out here until we’re done in there?” Toph: “You go ahead, I feel a lot better away from that guy.” Obi-wan: “Very well then.”

Obi-wan walked back in, Toph waited many minutes.

Afterwards, everyone stepped out of the chamber. Padme: “Well, it’s been great seeing you again, but we really need to get going; we still have a lot more things we need to show these kids.” Palpatine: “Of course, don’t let me intervene with your…plans.” Padme: “Thank you for understanding. Let’s go, everyone.”

They walked off. Palpatine: “Farewell, everyone, and I hope you feel better, young lady.”

Toph talked quietly to herself. Toph: “Oh, it will be a very long time before I “feel better” around you.”

Later on, everyone but Padme and Obi-wan arrived at a nearby mechanical workshop, just were about to enter it. Anakin: “Another thing you kids need to know about our world, we have droids. First of all, do any of you know what a droid is?”

Each of the kids looked at each other, then looked back up at Anakin and shook their heads. Anakin: “OK, do any of you know what a robot is?”

Several of them pondered for a moment. Sokka: “It’s like a mechanical man, right?” Anakin: “Yes, that’s what a droid is. Now then, shall we enter?”

As soon as they entered the workshop, they looked around in amazement of a lot of the droids that were within the shop. Anakin: “Alright, I need to warn all of you that a lot of these droids could be potentially dangerous as some of them are broken down and in need of repairs; some of them, however, could go berserk if you so much as go anywhere near them, so don‘t touch any of them!!!”

Sokka was still looking around in amazement. Anakin: “Got all of that, Sokka? Sokka? Sokka!!” Sokka: “Huh? What? Oh! Yeah! Sure!! Um, just what are the droids used for?” Anakin: “They’re used for a number of things. Each droid is built for a specific purpose. The type of droid they are determines their function. Ah, there are a few droids that I’m acquainted with.”

They looked over and saw 2 droids. Many might know them best as R2-D2 and C-3PO.They walked over towards them. Ahsoka walked up to R2-D2 and crouched near him. C-3PO then began to move. C-3PO: “Oh, hello, everyone, I am C-3PO.” Anakin: “Hello, C-3PO, I’m showing our new friends around to teach them about our world. I thought I might bring them here and teach them about droids.” C-3PO: “Oh, yes, well, in that case, I’m sure master Ani has told you this but each droid have specific functions. I am what is known as a protocol droid.” Anakin: “A protocol droid specializes in assisting diplomats; they can help in translating for many different kinds of languages for many different kinds of people.” C-3PO: “I have an extensive database and can understand more than thousands of different languages.” Anakin: “You already know from visiting the senate why a Protocol droid is very essential.” Toph: “Well, of course, being that there are thousands of different species and thousands of different star systems, I guess it IS important to have something around to help them easily communicate with one another.” Anakin: “Correct.” Katara: “I guess without droids like C-3PO, it can be very difficult for many of these people to talk to each other, or even say hello.” Toph: “Who built him?” Anakin: “I did, when I was younger.” Suki: “What? Really? I don’t believe it.” Anakin: “Much like what I said to Katara, I was exceptionally bright as a youngling. I knew how mechanical devices work, I knew at least 2 languages and I was good with fixing and even driving pod racers. You might say, even as a youngling, I was a gifted pilot.” Suki: “Gee, Master Skywalker, I never knew you had such a humongous ego. Do you brag like this often?”

Sokka was heard snickering in the background. Anakin looked down at Suki in a hard manner. Suki: “Now then, back to the matter of droids. So, who would that short droid over there be?” Anakin: “Who? That? That’s R2-D2, he and I go way back.”

R2 made a few beeping noises. Aang: “I take it R2 is not much of a talker.” Anakin: “Well, he does talk, sometimes, but he doesn’t speak our language if that’s what you’re implying.” Toph: “So what is R2’s function?” Anakin: “R2 is an Astromech droid. His functions involve assisting a fighter pilot.” Ahsoka: “Astromech droids, like R2, are built to do many different things for the fighter pilot. Their functions include navigation, maintaining controls, repairing damages done to the ship and storing data for the ship.” Anakin: “Astromech droids attach themselves directly into the starfighter; they’re responsible for maintaining the ship’s mobility and function and keeping everything in check. It’s always essential to have an Astromech droid that you can completely rely on or else you would be dead in space.” Aang: “Sounds scary.” Anakin: “It is.” Sokka: “Um, OK, so, why are astronomical, or whatever you called those droids, built to look like trash bins?” Anakin: “How should I know!?! I’m not the one in charge of the Astromech’s designs!!”

R2 made several beeping noises. Anakin: “Yeah, I know, he’s not very bright.”

He then made many more beeping noises. Anakin: “Really? You don’t say. I completely agree with you, R2.” Zuko: “What did he just say?” Anakin: “Uh, nothing, just a joke; you wouldn’t understand.” Sokka: “We hardly understand him now.”

Anakin made an irritated face towards Sokka. Suki: “OK, so are there any other droids besides these 2, Master Skywalker?” Anakin: “Sure, there are lots of them. There are medical droids, built to nurse people back to health a lot better than an actual person; they contain a vast amount of medical knowledge. There are pilot droids who are in charge of piloting most ships. They’re built directly into the system itself, so they can manage the ship a lot better then anyone. There are even droids designed to kill, they’re called Assassin droids, simple as that, even Sokka could understand that.”

Sokka made a somewhat annoyed look on his face. Anakin: “There are maintenance droids, which are built to monitor, clean and maintain any system. Construction droids are built for construction purposes, service droids are built to serve people, security droids are built as our authorities, there are even droids that are built to serve other droids.”

Everyone became astounded. Sokka: “Really? Droids that serve other droids? That’s ridiculous.” Ahsoka: “It’s true, there are actually droids like that. There’s even a spa for droids that cleans them up to make them good as new. Advertisements for places like that stated that they can clean droids up for that “fresh off the assembly line look”. Advertisements are so annoying.” Anakin: “Tell me about it.”

Later on, they continued looking around the workshop. Just then, something then caught Sokka’s eye, then he walked towards it. Anakin noticed Sokka walking towards some of the seemingly deactivated droids. Anakin: “SOKKA! DON’T TOUCH THAT!”

Sokka got too close to the droid, it then became active, went berserk and attacked Sokka. He was thrown back and noticed that droid was going after him. He then screamed as he got up and ran away from it, with it chasing after him. Everyone watched as the droid chased after him. Sokka: “AAAAHHH! KATARA! GET THIS KILLER DROID AWAY FROM ME!!!!” Anakin: “Does this…happen to your brother often, Katara?” Katara: “Too often.” Toph: “Sokka is a magnet for unfortunate mishaps. It’s…kind of a habit of his.” Anakin: “Heh! Why am I not surprised?” Ahsoka: “Somebody do something! Who know what that droid’s going to do to him!”

Anakin let out an annoyed grunt. Anakin: “Better let me handle this.”

With the use of his Force powers, the droid was stopped on its tracks and deactivated it. With that, Sokka managed to stop running to catch his breath. Katara ran over towards Sokka. Katara: “Sokka, are you OK?” Sokka: “Yeah, I’m fine. Thank goodness that killer robot was put to a halt.” Katara: “Well, I think you have Anakin to thank for that. He stopped that thing with his Force powers.” Sokka: “What? Really?”

The others walked closer to him. Sokka: “You just saved me! YOU’RE AWESOME!”

Sokka then threw himself on Anakin and wrapped his arms around him. Anakin pushed him off. Anakin: “Get off of me! What part of “don’t touch anything” did you not understand!?!” Sokka: “What? Get out of here; you never said that.” Zuko: “Uh, yeah, he did, Sokka.” Sokka: “What? Did he really mention it?” Toph: “I was here when he told us not to touch anything and that everything here could be dangerous, so, yeah, he did mention it to us.” Sokka: “Huh, well what do you know?” Toph: “Honestly, Sokka, where were you when he told us that?” Sokka: “I was awestruck by the many droids in this place. I mean, come on, they’re all awesome!”

Everyone in the room looked hard at Sokka. Sokka: “What?”

At that time, Rex and some of the clone troopers stepped in. Rex: “We heard a commotion. Is there anything wrong, sir?” Anakin: “No, nothing wrong; just Sokka running into another unfortunate incident. He’s OK now.” Rex: “Oh, well, that’s a relief. At least no one got hurt.” Anakin: “Yeah, for now. Rex, keep Sokka away from all the inactive droids, oh and just to be on the safe side, keep him away from the active droids, too.” Rex: “Will do, sir. But what about this one?” Anakin: “Don’t worry about that thing. We’ll handle this.” Rex: “Roger that.”

Rex gave direct orders to his troops, then he and his troops walked off. Ahsoka then pondered. Ahsoka: “Hm…I wonder why that droid became active and attacked Sokka?” Anakin: “Who knows? All of these droids are brought here for one reason or another. Perhaps it was a malfunction of some kind.” Ahsoka: “I know, but what caused it?” Anakin: “Hm…good question.” Sokka: “Hm…”

Sokka stretched out his fingers. Sokka: “Maybe I can figure out a thing or two about this droid.”

He moved his fingers around in anticipation and walked back towards the droid. Ahsoka: “Uh…I don’t think that’s a good idea, Sokka.” Sokka: “Oh, come on. I’ve had plenty of experience working on machinery back at my home world. How hard can it be to fix this thing?”

Everyone watched as Sokka tried to figure out how to fix the droid. Sokka: “Now let’s see, maybe if I…no, that’s not it. Perhaps if I…no, that’s not it, either. Then what if I…no, that can’t be right.” Anakin: “It’s like watching a train wreck before it even happens.”

As they kept watching, Sokka continued on until, the droid reactivated, went berserk again and shocked him. He screamed, ran off and hid behind Anakin. Anakin: “I knew this was going to happen.”

At that time, Suki walked up to the droid. Sokka: “That thing is a killer machine!” Ahsoka: “What’s the matter, couldn’t figure out how that thing worked? You did mention to us just now that you had some experience working with machines, didn‘t you?” Sokka: “Um…did I mention that I'm terrible with machines that are from other worlds?” Anakin: “No, you didn’t, but somehow, I kind of figured that you weren’t!” Ahsoka: “Well, so much for that. But don’t feel too bad. It takes a long time to repair these types of droids, usually because these problems can be very difficult to access, so it’s a very long endeavor to…” Suki: “I’m finished.”

They looked over and saw Suki with the droid working perfectly. Anakin was very shocked. Anakin: “Suki? Did you just…” Suki: “This little guy just needed a tune up. Its hard drive was seriously crashing, plus its main motor functions were failing, its density particles were damaged, it needed a new power supply, its buffer needed to be replaced, not to mention that its oil needed to be changed and when was the last time this thing was cleaned?”

Ahsoka and Anakin stood in awe. Ahsoka: “Wow! That was impressive, Suki.” Anakin: “Since when did you know how to fix droids?” Suki: “Since just now. A while back, I found out that I was good with computers and machines; Captain Aquatia and another friend of mine took me in and taught me everything that I know. They even trained me to adapt to machines from other worlds, regardless of how advanced they are.”

They continued staring in awe. They looked at each other and then back at Suki. Anakin: “Alright, from now on, I’ll entrust you around machines.”

Suki smiled. Anakin: “Sokka, on the other hand, needs to stay away from them, assuming that’s possible.”

Sokka stared at him in an irritating manner. Suki: “I’m so stoked, are there any more machines that needs to be fixed?”

Anakin and Ahsoka stood in awe. Ahsoka: “Um…yes, actually, there are lots of them here.” Suki: “Terrific! Where can I start?” Anakin: “Um…right here, actually. There are several droids that have been having a lot of problems lately. You think you’re up to the challenge?” Suki: “Bring it on, Master Skywalker! I’ll take on anything you throw at me.” Anakin: “OK, then, you have zeal, I’ll give you that much. Come on, I’ll show you some of our most defective droids.”

They all followed Anakin into another section of the Shoppe.

Later on, they were leaving the workshop. Padme and Obi-wan reunited with them and they walked along the streets of Coruscant. Katara: “So, where to next?”

Anakin and Obi-wan exchanged looks before they glanced back towards the Benders. Anakin: “Next, we’re going to take you back to the Jedi Temple.” Obi-wan: “Yes, we have a lot to teach to you about the Jedi Order.” Katara: “Sounds neat.” Ahsoka: “By the way, what are machines like in your world?” Katara: “Machines? Let’s see…the technology in our world is very primitive compared to yours, but we have some technical capabilities.” Ahsoka: “Like what?” Katara: “Well, each nation’s level of technology is different. For example, the Water Tribe and Air Nomads are the least technological nations in our world since both nations mainly revolve around Bending, so they don’t offer much, whereas Earth Kingdom technology is very good.” Toph: “Our architects are top notch.” Zuko: “The Fire Nation contains some of the most advance technology because of their large demands for weapons.” Ahsoka: “That must have been why the Fire Nation was doing so well during your war.” Zuko: “Yes, and we were progressively growing because of it.” Obi-wan: “So, tell us a little more about your world. What kind of machines do you have?” Sokka: “Well, let’s see. The Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation have boats. It’s basically been our most advanced source of transportation. Water Tribe uses boats a lot as means of transportation.” Ahsoka: “Well, yeah, it make sense, considering that they are the Water Tribe, after all.” Katara: “The Earth Kingdom uses boats called Ferries to cross many different bodies of water, sometimes. But since the Earth Kingdom is like a large piece of land, they use mainly ground-based transportation.” Toph: “We also have this huge, Earthbending powered Monorail that are used in the largest Earth Kingdom city in our world!” Ahsoka: “Really? Sounds amazing.” Aang: “The Mail Delivery System they use in the Earth Kingdom city of Omashu is a lot of fun.” Sokka: “Our most advanced nation, being the Fire Nation, have steamed powered boats.” Zuko: “They were among many of our most advanced sources of transportation in the world.” Ahsoka: “So, what kind of transportation did the Air Nomads have, besides flying bison?” Aang: “We didn’t really have much except for bison. But we did have gliders. It is also the only weapon we use, that and a wind sword and perhaps the most advanced pieces of technology we had were doors that can be opened by Airbending.” Ahsoka: “Like some sort of key?” Aang: “Exactly.” Sokka: “The Water Tribe is known best for some of its weaponry, especially ones made from animal bones.” Toph: “Earth Kingdom has a ton of cool weapons.” Anakin: “Let me guess, Zuko, the Fire Nation out bested the other nations in weaponry?”

Zuko paused then dropped his head. Zuko: “Yes…”

Zuko lifted his head back up. Zuko: “Our weaponry were so advanced that some of the vehicles we had were weapons, too.” Anakin: “Oh.” Katara: “The Fire Nation has some weapons that were around our standard levels.” Sokka: “A lot of us are very good at metal crafting; it’s how we’re able to design so many useful weapons.” Ahsoka: “Sounds neat.” Aang: “But hardly any of them compare to the type weapons you have. I mean, you guys have swords made from pure light. What do you call those things, beam swords?” Anakin: “You mean this?”

Anakin pulled out his Lightsaber and held it out, then put it away. Anakin: “You’re close, Aang. They’re called Lightsabers. Every Jedi has one. They’re used for combat and self-defense.” Ahsoka: “Even a Youngling is told that the weapon is their life and that they must never lose it or else…well…they would be in a lot of trouble.” Anakin: “Or someone could find it and use it for their own nefarious purposes. It is the most advanced type of weaponry of our world and anyone can learn how to wield one.” Obi-wan: “Our weapon is very powerful. It can cut through almost any material, even the thickest metal that our world could provide.” Aang: “Again, we hardly have anything like that in our world.” Sokka: “So, tell us this, Jedi knights, where does the light on that weapon come from, anyway?” Anakin: “The weapon itself focuses a beam, with is unleashed through a series of lenses, from a crystal contained within the weapon, which gives the weapon its properties, we can adjust the blade to whatever length or power we want. Each weapon is constructed by a Jedi with the use of the Force.” Sokka: “You mean you guys usually create those weapons, yourselves?” Anakin: “Yes.” Sokka: “OK, is there any reason why each of your blades is a different color?” Anakin: “Well, it’s mainly because of the type of crystal used in the Lightsaber. Ahsoka uses a different crystal in her Lightsaber from myself and Obi-wan.” Obi-wan: “There are many different types of crystals used for Lightsabers. But Green and Blue are the most commons colors used. Master Windu’s Lightsaber, however, consists of a rare crystal, so it lets out a violet pigment.” Katara: “This all sounds very interesting. It does make us feel more primitive, however.” Ahsoka: “Sorry.” Katara: “Oh, no, it’s OK, our technology may seem like a stand still, but we have progressed a lot, I mean, we invented different types of machinery, such as submarines, different tanks, timing devices, even invented aircraft, such as hot air balloons.” Padme: “Well, there you go. You guys aren’t so primitive, after all.” Katara: “Thanks, but it’ll be a long time before we reach your standard. I mean, you guys are able to go into outer space and your societies doesn’t consist of 1 just planet, or even one star system, for that matter; it’s nothing like our world.” Ahsoka: “I see, but still, you’re society sounds pretty amazing, in its own way. I’ve never heard anything quite like it. Your world is truly one of a kind.”  

Soon enough, they arrived back at the Jedi Temple. There, they walked along the halls of the Temple. Anakin: “There are many things you need to know about the Jedi Order. We already told you that it’s our job to maintain in order in our world, much like the Avatar in your world.” Aang: “Yes, we remember you specifically telling us that.” Anakin: “Well, there’s more than just that. You see, there are also the different positions in the Jedi Order. There’s the Jedi Initiate, or the Younglings as we call them, they are Force sensitive children who are chosen when they are very young, they are taken from their families and homes, as we mentioned yesterday and brought here for training.” Aang: “The Avatar is never chosen at a young age, when the Avatar’s identity is revealed during come they’re 16th birthday, they are then sent away for 12 years to the other 3 nations. They are to spend 4 years in each nation to train in and learn the other styles of bending.” Anakin: “OK, sounds interesting enough. Anyway, after the younglings complete their training as an Initiate, they are then selected to move up to the position of a Padawan.” Sokka: “What’s a Padawan?” Ahsoka: “A Padawan is a Jedi apprentice, they are assigned to a higher ranking Jedi to learn on the field.” Sokka: “So, the higher ranked Jedi act as babysitters to these Padawan?” Ahsoka: “Yep…sort of.” Katara: “You’re a Padawan to Master Skywalker, right, Ahsoka?”

Sokka chuckled a little. Sokka: “That’s makes you a babysitter to Ahsoka!” Anakin: “Hey, shut up!”

Obi-wan chuckled a little under his breath, Anakin noticed. Anakin: “Hey, don’t forget that you went through the same process with me, my former master.” Obi-wan: “Anakin!” Suki: “You were a Padawan once?” Obi-wan: “All Jedi Masters were once Padawan, Suki, including me.” Toph: “You were a Padawan? I find that hard to believe.” Obi-wan: “Well, let’s see it this way, I’m sure each of you weren’t Master Benders throughout your entire lives and each of you never got to where you are overnight; you kids probably perfected your bending arts under a Master Bender.” Katara: “Hey, yeah, he’s right. We did learn everything we know from different masters. I guess that would kind of make each of us their Padawan.” Obi-wan: “Absolutely; that’s how it is with all Jedi.” Ahsoka: “During their training, a Padawan is required to wear a small braid to indicate that they have not moved up, yet; all species that grow hair is required to have their hair grow a little longer for the braid, all non-hair growing species, like myself, have to wear a piece of jewelry or tattoo for the braid.” Katara: “Say, where is your braid?”

Ahsoka took off her Padawan braid and showed it to everyone. Ahsoka: “Right here.”

Everyone looked at it. Katara: “It’s beautiful.”

She put it back on. Ahsoka: “After a Padawan’s training is complete, their braid is then severed.” Anakin: “That is after a Padawan has proven themselves over a rigorous 10 year course, they are then bumped up to Jedi Knight.” Sokka: “Wait, it would take a Padawan 10 years to move up to Jedi Knight? That’s a long time!” Anakin: “Tell me about it. Being a Padawan to Master Obi-wan isn’t exactly a day on the beach.” Obi-wan: “Hey, it wasn’t that bad.” Anakin: “Maybe not to you, but to me, it was a trial all on it’s own, forget the rigorous training, living under your shadow was the real challenge.” Obi-wan: “Well, I moved up to Jedi Master and you’re still a Jedi Knight.” Anakin: “Yeah, but you never would have gotten to where you are now without my help.” Zuko: “What did he mean by all of that, Obi-wan?”

Obi-wan let out a slight worn out sigh. Obi-wan: “When a Jedi Knight has proven their full understanding of the Force and has succeeded in moving their Padawan up to Jedi Knight, they, in time, move up to the rank of Jedi Master.” Toph: “Isn’t that where you are now, Master Kenobi?” Obi-wan: “Yes, that is correct.” Sokka: “So, it takes just as long for a Jedi Knight to became a Jedi Master as it takes for a Padawan to become a Jedi Knight? No way! NO WAY will I believe it taking that long!” Ahsoka: “Well, it is less than the amount of time for the Avatar to learn other forms of bending under the masters of the other elements.” Aang: “That’s right, all Avatars went through that process, everyone but me.” Ahsoka: “What do you mean?” Aang: “Well, you see, a while after Katara broke me out of the iceberg, the Avatar that came before me, Avatar Roku, told me about a comet that passes by our world every one hundred years.” Anakin: “A comet?” Aang: “Yes, Sozin’s Comet, actually.” Ahsoka: “Sozin’s Comet, you mean as in Firelord Sozin?” Zuko: “Yes, the comet is said to grant Firebenders an enormous amount of energy for Firebending. Sozin used it to wipe out the Air Nomads.” Obi-wan: “I am terribly sorry to hear that.” Ahsoka: “So, what about Sozin’s Comet? Why was it so important for you to know about it?” Aang: “It’s because the comet was returning and Firelord Ozai was planning on using it to burn the Earth Kingdom to the ground and claim the world in the name of the Fire Nation.”

Ahsoka and Padme gasped. Anakin: “No…! He couldn’t!” Obi-wan: “That monster!” Padme: “So Firelord Ozai was willing to destroy your world just to rule over it?” Zuko: “Yes.” Anakin: “And just when I thought that man couldn’t be anymore ruthless! How could you think you would ever be loved by someone like him, Zuko!?!” Zuko: “He was my father, what more could I say?” Padme: “All that is true, Zuko, but you had to have known where to draw the line.” Zuko: “I did, during that war meeting, when my father was telling everyone about that plan, I wanted so much to speak out against it, but I’m ashamed to say I didn’t. My whole life all I wanted was my father’s love, I thought all I wanted was my honor, but then I realized that I lost my honor and worst of all, I lost myself.” Anakin: “Clearly, there was a major difference between claiming your honor and gaining your father’s love; from what I can tell, they’re both complete opposites.” Zuko: “I know that now and I’m sorry I didn’t realize it sooner.” Obi-wan: “It’s alright, Zuko; better late than never.” Anakin: “Not to mention before your father used that comet to burn the entire world down! Scorching the Earth Kingdom? The Fire Nation is way passed sharing its greatness with the world! That’s just wrong!” Zuko: “I know.” Katara: “We all know that.” Obi-wan: “OK, then, so, shall we have a look around the temple?” Aang: “Sure, I’m up for it.” Katara: “Me, too.” Toph: “Same here.” Zuko: “I’m in.” Sokka: “Let’s go, then.” Suki: “Yes, let’s.” Anakin: “OK, then.” Obi-wan: “Follow me, everyone.”

They walked all around the Jedi Temple, they looked around. Sokka then spotted a few Jedi walking around, one of them with Twi’lek hair tails. Sokka: “Hair tails…a Twi’lek? Hey, guys, look, there’s a Twi’lek Jedi! Over there.” Ahsoka: “That’s Master Aayla Secura. You’re right, Sokka, she is a Twi’lek.” Sokka: “Really? Twi’leks can be Jedi?” Anakin: “All species can become Jedi, Sokka. It depends on whether or not they’re smart enough to wield the Force to their will.” Sokka: “The Force, huh? Tell me more about this…Force.” Katara: “You told us that the Force is what gives the Jedi their power.” Obi-wan: “Precisely. The Force is a unique energy field that surrounds us. For some reason or other, some of us are able to manipulate the Force to our will, giving us our power. They are able to study under the influence of it, serve under its mysterious entities and use it too their will. Those people become Jedi.” Toph: “Any ideas on how this is done?” Obi-wan: “No, no one really knows how it works; all we know is that it can be utilized to our advantage.” Anakin: “A Jedi named Qui-Gon Jinn told me that our connections to the Force involved these micro organisms called Midi-chlorians, he said that they allow a person to connect with the force and communicate it; allowing one to wield it.”

Obi-wan was greatly surprised to hear this. Obi-wan: “Master Qui-Gon told you that Midi-chlorians are responsible for control over the Force? Clearly, that man had lost it more than I thought.” Suki: “What are Midi-chlorians, Master Kenobi?” Obi-wan: “Midi-chlorians was a failed experimental project consisting of bio-cellular antibodies that were supposedly synthesized to fight off many potentially lethal diseases. They were to fight off deadly plaques a lot better than our standard immune system, like the accursed Blue Shadow Virus.” Suki: “Hm…so what made them a complete failure?” Obi-wan: “They weren’t fighting off the infectious diseases like they were supposed to. After the failure, the scientists who created the Midi-chlorians were forced to shut down the experiment due to the people’s lack of faith in the project. But then one of the scientists found out that the Midi-chlorians actually had some unusual reactions to the Force for some reason, so they decided to conduct experiments on a few of there own and found that the Midi-chlorians are, in fact, more active around those who are sensitive to the Force than those who aren’t.” Katara: “And so you have used those Midi-chlorians to detect who is Force-sensitive by how active they are.” Obi-wan: “That is correct, we have also found that the Force nurtures these Midi-chlorians, causing them to multiply exponentially, as demonstrated by young Anakin over here.” Anakin: “Master Qui-Gon found that my Midi-chlorian count was beyond many Jedi masters, even Master Yoda, demonstrating my strong connections with the Force.” Obi-wan: “But the Midi-chlorians are not responsible for our control over the Force, at all, what-so-ever.” Sokka: “Well, that’s a relief; I wouldn’t want to get into this whole, complicated aspect of Midi-chlorians things, or whatever being responsible for any special magic influences or anything, it all sounds complicated as it is and it’s stupid to use science to try and explain magic.”

Katara seemed dejected. Katara: “It’s a shame though; it would have been like how our Chi and it’s connections to our bending.” Anakin: “Chi?” Katara: “Yes, it is a stream of energy that flows through the bodies of all living things, including you, however, a lot of us from our world have manipulated the Chi in our bodies to interact with the environment to a point in which we can manipulate it. That’s where our bending comes from.” Ahsoka: “Wow, so this Chi you guys talk about has a strong influence with all of you.” Katara: “That’s correct, Ahsoka.” Obi-wan: “Fascinating, truly fascinating. Perhaps I could look into this chi, myself; it might even clarify our connections to the Force, as well.” Katara: “Yes, it may be.” Padme: “You know, all this talk of special abilities and such has led me to believe that we are not as different as we may think, I mean sure, we’re from different worlds and we live among different influences and beliefs, but it sounds as though we are all one in the same.” Katara: “Yes, I think so, too, Padme, we are all connected in every way even though we are from different environments. Perhaps our abilities aren’t so different, after all.” Obi-wan: “Hm…maybe.”

They continued walking along the Jedi Temple. They soon ran into several Jedi Masters, one of them being Master Mace Windu. Anakin: “Master.” Mace: “I see you are giving the Benders a tour of the Temple.” Obi-wan: “But of course, we were educating our young friends about our world to give them a better sense of what’s in store here. Right now, we’re telling them about the Jedi Order.” Mace: “Very good. They’ll need to know about everything if they are to stay here. Let me tell you kids something about the Jedi Order. You were probably told about the Jedi Council and that we are the leaders of the order.” Aang: “Yes, they did tell us that you guys are the Head Honchos of the Jedi Order.” Mace: “Yes, even though we run the Order, we are still merely servants to the Force. The Council is run by a small group of Jedi Masters with a full understanding of the Force and learns to use it by the code.” Aang: “The code? I…think you mentioned something about the code, but…you hardly said much about it.” Obi-wan: “Oh, did I forget to inform you about what the Jedi Code is? Silly me, where are my manners?” Katara: “So, what is this Jedi Code?” Mace: “All Jedi, be it Padawan or Master, must follow a strict set of guidelines. Not even a member of the council is above it.” Zuko: “They’re merely those who follow the code by the exact letter?” Mace: “Exactly, Zuko.” Sokka: “So, what is this “Jedi Code”? Come on, fill me in, Sokka wishes to know all the details.” Obi-wan: “The Jedi Code is not that complex, it simply state as follows: “We are the guardians of peace in the galaxy. We use our powers to defend and protect, never to attack others. We respect all life, in any form. We serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy. We seek to improve ourselves through knowledge and training”.” Zuko: ”Wow, that's all…very intriguing. Mace: The code doesn’t end there. “There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no chaos, there is harmony. There is no death, there is the Force.” Only by fully accepting these rules can a Jedi be officially called a Master.” Aang: “Respect all life? Really? That’s what the monks my our temple told us. It has always been a part of our culture as Air Nomads to respect all life. I’m even a vegetarian because of it!” Ahsoka: “Hey, yeah, you did mention something like that last night during dinner.” Katara: “This could sound almost like the same guidelines as the Avatar. He promises to use his powers to protect our world from falling out of balance.” Aang: “The training that the Avatar goes through teaches him this, by maintaining balance within oneself can he then maintain balance in the world.” Ahsoka: “That was beautiful, Aang. You know, in some ways, the Jedi and the Avatar are very much alike.” Anakin: “Maybe, the only difference I see being that there is only 1 Avatar and there are so many Jedi in the galaxy.” Katara: “Oh, I think there is more than that, actually.” Mace: “Yes, I agree with Katara on this one. Regardless, there is still much to learn. We hardly ever share our secrets with anyone outside the Jedi Order, but I would gladly consider these kids an exception since they are our last hope against this new menace known as the Heartless.”

They kept walking on. Katara: “So, what sort of things can you do with the Force? I have already seen you be able to be able to levitate things at will.” Anakin: “Well, there’s that, but there are tons of other things we can do with the Force.” Toph: “Like what?” Obi-wan: “Well, we have used to Force to calm and tame vicious animals.” Aang: “Really?” Obi-wan: “Yes, the Force allows us to bond with the animals so that we can easily influence them.” Katara: “Sounds neat.” Aang: “I have that same influence on animals, only I don’t use any powers, I use this.”

Aang pulled out his bison whistle. Ahsoka: “Aang, what’s that?” Sokka: “That’s his bison whistle, he uses it to call Appa.” Ahsoka: “Can I try it?” Aang: “Sure.”

He handed the whistle to Ahsoka, she blew on it, but it hardly makes any sound, she looks at it confused. Ahsoka: “Hm, must be broken.” Obi-wan: “I don’t think it’s broken, Ahsoka.”

He grabbed the whistle from her. Obi-wan: “The whistle itself creates a high-pitched sound that only animals can hear, right?” Aang: “Yes, that’s exactly right, Obi-wan.”

Obi-wan gave the whistle back to Aang, he put it away. Ahsoka: “I’d love to actually meet Appa, sometime.” Aang: “I’m sure you would love him.”

Ahsoka smiled. Toph: “OK, so what else can you guys do with the Force?” Obi-wan: “We can use it to enhance our agility. You may have noticed a few times that Jedi are excellent jumpers. That would be the Force increasing our jumping abilities. We can even run faster, but that could take a lot out of us.” Katara: “Um, OK.” Aang: “An Airbender can have the same abilities, we can utilize our Airbending to jump great heights and even run faster than the wind.” Ahsoka: “Wow, all of that sounds interesting. You know, after hearing stuff like this, it kind of reminds me that the Jedi and the Benders have so much in common from one another.” Obi-wan: “Indeed, we are similar in so many way.” Sokka: “OK, don’t hold back on the juicy stuff, what other things can you do with the Force?” Obi-wan: “We can use the Force to persuade people into doing whatever we want without using any kind of aggressive means of influence.” Anakin: “We call it the Jedi Mind Trick.” Sokka: “Pffffft! Jedi Mind Trick, no one believes that actually works.”

Anakin walked up to Sokka and used the Jedi Mind Trick on him. Anakin: “You WILL walk in a circle 3 times.” Sokka: “I will walk in a circle 3 times.”

Sokka did exactly was he was told. Everyone looked at Anakin in a displeasing manner. Anakin: “Thought I might give him a demonstration.” Obi-wan: “Yes, as much as I regret to inform you, the Jedi Mind Trick only works on the weak-minded.” Katara: “Is that so? If that’s the case, then…hey!”

Toph was heard cracking up. Toph: “That is so true!”

Suki looked even more displeased. Suki: “Actually, as much as I hate to admit it, it does make sense.” Anakin: “Oh, you actually agree with me on something?” Suki: “Well, yes, I’ve always known Sokka as…easily influenced. I even got him to do whatever I wanted.” Anakin: “Really? Fill me in later.” Suki: “Sure thing. Please continue.” Anakin: “We can even use the Force to protect ourselves.” Toph: “Really?” Anakin: “Sure, we can create protective bubbles around us to protect us from anything lethal, such as poisonous gases.” Katara: “That sounds fascinating.” Anakin: “The Force also plays a major key role in wielding our Lightsabers.” Toph: “Really? How?” Ahsoka: “It can heighten our awareness to keep us from injuring ourselves.” Anakin: “The Lightsaber can be and is a very dangerous weapon, so it’s always best to keep a sharp mind when using it, which is a lot more than I could say about Sokka.” Sokka: “Hey!” Ahsoka: “We can even use the Lightsaber to deflect lasers. That comes in handy a lot.” Katara: “So, whenever you wield your Lightsabers, you’re always using the Force to increase your control over it?” Ahsoka: “Yes.” Zuko: “This all sounds interesting. This Force you guys speak of, it exists around us, too?” Ahsoka: “It exists around everyone, Zuko, much like Chi that flows through the bodies of all living things. It connects us, it connects all life in the galaxy and now, you’re part of it.” Katara: “How strong of an influence does it have on living things?” Obi-wan: “The Force and its influence are so strong we know what is happening to anyone in any part of the galaxy, such as when a life is taken, we can feel it; this is one of many things that is known as a Disturbance in the Force.” Mace: “Or when new comers from another dimension arrive within our galaxy.” Katara: “So, that’s what you meant by “an unusual shift in the Force”.” Mace: “That’s right; we felt your arrival.” Katara: “But, what about the Heartless? Can you feel them, too?” Ahsoka: “Oh, we can feel them, alright.” Zuko: “How is it like?” Ahsoka: “It’s a distasteful disturbance; like an incredibly large, empty feeling emerged into our galaxy.” Zuko: “Yeah, that sounds like the Heartless, alright.” Obi-wan: “The feeling itself can be nauseating at times, so whenever we feel inexplicably ill, it is most likely because we’re sensing out those creatures.” Anakin: “Oh, yeah, I’m sure I’m able to tell whenever I can feel them out; all too well.” Ahsoka: “But, we can’t feel them all the time; they somehow found a way to mask themselves from our senses.” Katara: “Hm…you didn’t mention anything about feeling any Heartless in that garden yesterday. It probably has something to do with that Keyhole we found there.” Ahsoka: “You may be right; they’re somehow using them to mask themselves from the Force, itself.” Obi-wan: “We’ll most certainly look into this when we have the time, but we still have a lot more we need to do.” Katara: “Yes, let’s keep going, you guys.”

They spent several hours touring the Jedi Temple. They visited many chambers in the Temple; they talked, had some laughs, all the Benders were informed on everything they needed to know about the Jedi Order. In return, the Benders exchanged more stories from their world, all of which intrigued their Jedi friends and Padme.

Later on that day, everyone stood at the very top of the Jedi Temple, staring out at the city. Obi-wan: “So, tell us more about the cultures of your world.” Anakin: “Yeah, besides your unique influences over the different elements, what else make your nations so special?”

The Benders looked up at their new friends; they then pulled out their pendants containing the symbols of each of their nations. Katara: “Our influences over the elements have always been the largest part of our culture, but there are other things that make us unique. There are the different animals of our world that come from different nations as well, but there are also unique fauna, music, art, cities, people, style, forms, all of our Non-Benders and cuisines.” Sokka: “We have a lot of good food back at home, especially the meat.”

Anakin groaned a little. Anakin: “Katara, does your brother think of anything besides food?”

Katara looked at him in an annoyed manner. Anakin: “Sorry. Continue.” Katara: “Alright. There are also spiritual beliefs involved.” Ahsoka: “I kind of figured. You did mention that the Avatar IS a spirit of your world manifested in a human being.” Katara: “Right, but there are lots more spirits than just the Avatar; many of which take on the forms of animals. The spirit of one of the first ever Benders takes on the form of an animal.” Ahsoka: “First ever Benders? What do you mean by that?” Katara: “Many centuries ago, before the Avatar even showed up, our people use to have been taught the bending styles to many different teachers, none of which were human; they were merely different creatures.” Toph: “The first Earthbenders were taught Earthbending by Badgermoles.” Katara: “The first ever Earth Kingdom city was built to honor those two, Omashu. It’s kind of a long story and it’s kind of sad. We’ll tell you later.” Ahsoka: “OK.” Aang: “The first ever Airbenders were taught Airbending from the Sky Bison.” Ahsoka: “The Sky Bison? You mean like Appa?” Aang: “Yes, we’re deeply devoted to our masters, so much so that we would have arrow tattoos all over our bodies upon mastering the technique to honor them.” Ahsoka: “Hm, you don’t say. I did notice that large arrow on Appa’s head was that same as the one on your head; I don’t think that’s a coincidence.” Aang: “No, Ahsoka, you’re right. We did that on purpose. The arrows represent the flow of chi in our bodies.” Ahsoka: “OK. So, what’s it like getting those tattoos?”

Aang hesitated. Obi-wan: “I take it that was an unpleasant experience.” Aang: “Uh…”

At that moment, Aang had a flashback of himself screaming and squirming as the Air monks held him down and forcibly tattooed the arrows on his body. Aang blushed and rubbed the back of his head in embarrassment. Aang: “I’d…rather not talk about it…”

Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-wan and Padme laughed. Padme: “So, what about you, Zuko? Who taught your nation how to Firebend?” Zuko: “Our first masters were the dragons. They taught the first ever Firebenders, an ancient civilization known as the Sun Warriors, how to draw power from the sun and use its heat as life energy.” Ahsoka: “So your bending has a specific power source.” Zuko: “Yes, for over a century, my nation has misused its power to strike fear in the hearts of many people, including our own. We always saw it as destruction and power instead of what it really is: life and discipline.”

Obi-wan shook his head. Obi-wan: “I’m sorry to hear that, Zuko. You’re people have indeed shown a great deal of dishonor.” Zuko: “Yes…but we also had a much more horrific tradition: we hunted dragons for glory.” Ahsoka: “Hunting dragons, as in killing them?” Zuko: “Yes, they say that if a Firebender were to conquer the ultimate Firebender, they would be considered a legend and earn the title “dragon”. However, this senseless tradition led the dragons to their near extinction.” Obi-wan: “Hunting dragons for the sake of glory? I would never consider any glory to such a senseless act!” Zuko: “I’d say you would have the correct state of mind, Obi-wan.”

Obi-wan smiled. Ahsoka: “So, how about you, Katara, who taught the first Waterbenders how to Waterbend?”

Katara turned around and looked up at the sky. Katara: “The legend of our tribe says the moon was the first Waterbender. It was said that our ancestors watched as it pushed and pulled the tides, and then they learned to do it themselves.” Anakin: “Is that so?”

He then grabbed the Water Tribe pendent from Katara and observed it. Anakin: “Is that why this crescent moon is part of your tribe’s symbol?” Katara: “That’s exactly right. All Waterbenders draw power from the moon itself. Our bending is at its strongest during the full moon.” Obi-wan: “It makes sense actually. The moon is known for its strong influence over the tides. The tides themselves increase during a full moon.” Ahsoka: “So, I take it the moon has a strong influence over their bending for the same reason that it has a strong influence over the tides.” Obi-wan: “Apparently so.” Ahsoka: “So, all of your first bending teachers were all animals with the exception of the Waterbenders, being the moon.” Katara: “Yes…sort of.” Anakin: “What do you mean?” Katara: “In our world, the spirit of the moon, like many spirits that crossed over from the spirit world, took on a mortal form of an animal. The moon spirit, Tui, along with its sibling, La, the ocean spirit, took on their mortal forms as Koi fish.” Aang: “We saw the spirits. In the North pole, there is this place known as the Spirit oasis, the most spiritual place in the North pole, they swim around in an endless dance together, constantly spiraling with one another.” Katara: “Along with the legend of our Waterbending, Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe, mentioned that the moon gives us our strength and the ocean gives us our life. They work together to maintain balance in our world.” Ahsoka: “Um…Katara, I don’t know how to say this, but not many of our planets have moons.” Obi-wan: “She’s right, if the legends of your tribe are true, then you won’t be able to have anything to draw your bending from. Your Waterbending wouldn’t be effective on any of those worlds.” Katara: “Oh, that’s no problem, I’ll just summon out moon here.” Anakin: “Summon the moon? Is that even possible?” Katara: “Yes, I’ll show you.”

She pulled out her Keyblade, then initiated her summoning power from it. The Jedi and Padme watched in amazement as the moon showed up in the sky. Padme: “Is that the moon from your world?” Katara: “Yes.”

Just then, they saw something else. Ahsoka: “Look!”

They watched as Yue appeared in front of the moon. She then slowly descended towards them. Anakin: “Who…who is that?” Sokka: “Yue…”

Sokka walked up to Yue as she floated in front of everyone. Anakin: “That’s Yue!?!” Yue: “Hello, everyone.”

She then looked over to Sokka as he stood right in front of her. Yue placed her hand on his face. Yue: “It’s so good to see you again, Sokka.”

Sokka then touched her hand. Sokka: “I’ve missed you a lot.” Obi-wan: “Pardon me for my intrusion, but what does she have anything to do with the moon?” Katara: “She’s the moon spirit.” Anakin: “What? But didn’t you just mention that she was the princess of the Northern Water Tribe?” Yue: “I was…but…I was called to sacrifice for my people, my tribe. I willingly accepted the task to save my tribe.”

She then looked over toward Suki. Yue: “You’re very lucky; I could never have him, even when I was alive. Take good care of him.” Suki: “Oh, don’t worry about it, I will.”

She smiled, then took her hand off of Sokka, she back into the sky near the moon, then she disappeared along with the moon.

Sokka was left sulking. Anakin: “How…how did this happen?” Sokka: “It all started when the Fire Nation invaded the North Pole. A horrible man named Admiral Zhao led a fleet of more than 100 Fire navy ships on an all out assault against the Northern Water Tribe.” Anakin: “So, what was he planning to do? Was he going to steal all of the Waterbenders from the North Pole as they did in the South Pole?” Sokka: “They didn’t need to, Zhao had only one target: the moon spirit. He wanted to kill the moon spirit.” Ahsoka: “Kill the moon spirit!?! Why would he want to do that!?!” Katara: “Because he knew that if he took away the Waterbenders’ source of power, they would permanently lose their bending.” Aang: “However, by removing the moon, it would also have a negative effect. It would completely disrupt the balance of the entire world that would hurt not only the Water Tribe, but everything else, as well, including the Fire Nation. When we confronted him in the Spirit Oasis, we pleaded to him not to kill the moon spirit. But in spite of that, he still did.” Ahsoka: “That’s terrible!” Anakin: “OK, so what is Yue’s involvement in all of this? What did she mean by sacrificing herself for her people?” Sokka: “Many years ago when Yue was born, she was deathly sick and there was no one who could save her. Her father, Chief Arnook, pleaded to the moon spirit to save her. When she was placed in the spirit water, the moon spirit gave a portion of its life force to her. She lived because of the moon spirit.” Ahsoka: “So when the moon spirit was killed, Yue gave back its essence inside her to revive it but it also caused her to end her own life in the process.” Sokka: “That’s right, Ahsoka, And now…Princess Yue IS the moon spirit.”

Ahsoka was distraught to here this. Ahsoka: “This is all so terrible…” Anakin: “Alright, so, when Katara summons the moon, Yue is called in, too?” Sokka: “Katara didn’t summon the moon, she summoned Yue. She is connected to the moon, itself, so when Katara summons Yue, it automatically brings the moon from our world here.” Ahsoka: “You know, that does make sense; it is easier than actually bringing the moon here.” Anakin: “True, but maybe Princess Yue would still be alive if Admiral Zhao never killed the moon spirit’s mortal form!” Obi-wan: “Indeed, whoever this Admiral Zhao is, he sounds like a very despicable man.” Zuko: “That would be putting it lightly.” Katara: “You know, now that you mention it, we never saw Zhao since the Siege in the North Pole.” Anakin: “Hm, any ideas on what happened to him?” Katara: “We don’t know; we never found out what happened to him.” Zuko: “I did. When Zhao and I were dueling, a strange, watery hand reached out, grabbed him and pulled him into the water.” Aang: “That must have been the ocean spirit, taking its revenge on Zhao for killing its sibling.” Anakin: “Heh! Serves him right.” Zuko: “I tried to reach out and save him, but he chose his fate into a watery grave.” Padme: “But why would Zhao want to do that?” Anakin: “Isn’t it obvious? If Zhao is as despicable as they say he is, then he must have hated Zuko for his supposed treachery. Isn’t that right?”

Zuko held his head down as he sulked. Zuko: “Unfortunately, you’re too accurate, Anakin. He always thought of me as a disgrace to the Fire Nation and the name Fire Nation Prince, he even tried to kill me one time, when I tried to save him, he decided to be killed because he would have been just as dishonorable as me; he could never bare that thought, so he let the ocean spirit drown him.” Obi-wan: “It was very noble of you to save the life of someone who despised you, Zuko. I think Admiral Zhao made the wrong decision.” Anakin: “I’m not so sure about that, master. If word got out that Admiral Zhao’s life was saved by the “treacherous prince of the Fire Nation”, he would have been executed for letting a traitor save him.” Obi-wan: “Hm, you may be right. It would have been the same in our world, as well.” Anakin: “I don’t know, I thought what happened to him was too good for the likes of him, but I’m glad that he got was coming to him; serves him right for defying the spirits of the Benders' world.” Obi-wan: “Here, here.” Ahsoka: “So, he next to Yue was one of many causalities of the Siege in the North Pole.”

Sokka sulked as he dropped his head. Anakin looked over towards Sokka, concerned for him this time. Anakin: “There’s…something else I’m concerned about. She also mentioned that she could never have you, even when she was alive. What did she mean by that?”

Sokka lifted his head with a look of agitation on his face. Sokka: “She was already going to marry someone else.” Ahsoka: “Someone else? Who?” Sokka: “Just some jerk warrior from the North Pole. It’s was an arranged marriage but she felt like she had to marry the guy for her people.”

Sokka dropped his head and sulked. Sokka: “Yue was always self-sacrificing. She never cared about what she wanted and thought only about what’s best for her tribe. I was so in love with her and she loved me, too.”

He lifted his head back up. Sokka: “I actually got to know her as an actual person. She was sweet, kind, caring, sensitive, thoughtful, but that jerk she was going to marry was stuck up, self-important and arrogant. He treated her like some…some material possession! Someone as special as her was wasted on a self-absorbed weasel like him! He didn’t love Yue, he only cared about his ranks and impressing her dad! He was nothing but a jerk without a soul!”

Tears started to pour out of his eyes. Concerned, each of the Jedi and Padme looked at each other. Padme then walked up to Sokka and touched him on the shoulder. Padme: “I can’t even begin to tell you how awful most of what you just said is. That guy sounds like a horrible person. I don’t care who he was going to marry, he had no right to speak of her that way.” Sokka: “Yue didn’t care. She didn’t love him but that didn’t matter to her. The only thing I’ve ever wanted for her was to make her happy. That’s how much I loved her.”

Padme placed his arms around him. Padme: “I know, Sokka. I know.”

She then let go and looked directly at him. Padme: “To tell you the truth, I know exactly what she’s going through. I live to serve my people, as well. I care about the citizens back on Naboo the same way that Yue cared about her people of the Northern Water Tribe. I love my people, too, so I am also self-sacrificing. Sometimes we need to just accept our role and we don’t always enjoy the decisions we have to make for the sake of our people, if at all. But to give her life in order to resurrect the moon spirit, not only did she save her people but the world, your world; that says a lot about her.” Sokka: “Would you have given your life to revive a spirit that was senselessly killed in order to save your people?”

Padme looked back at Anakin, Obi-wan and Ahsoka. Padme: “It wouldn‘t exactly be an easy decision for me, but…I would have to say yes…I would. You really have been missing her a lot, haven’t you?”

Sokka sulked. Everyone stood by, silent for a good amount of time.

That evening, Toph sat alone on a ledge, facing the sunset while sipping on a pink liquid in a tall glass used for sundaes. At that time, Obi-wan arrived, Toph placed her hand on the ground as he arrived. Toph: “Oh, it’s only you, Obi-wan.” Obi-wan: “Hello, Toph, you don’t mind if I sit near you, do you?” Toph: “Nah. Pull up a ledge.”

Obi-wan walked up to Toph and sat down next to her. He looked at her several times, trying to think of something to say. Obi-wan: “So, um…what’s on your mind, this evening?”

Toph shrugged her shoulders. Toph: “A bunch of stuff.” Obi-wan: “Like what?” Toph: “Nothing really important. It’s just…this is all brand new to me. Meeting a lot of different people, going around new places, it’s a lot to take in, especially for someone like me who can’t see anything.” Obi-wan: “Ah, I see, that’s completely understandable.”

They sat for a few moments and said nothing. Toph took a sip of her drink. Obi-wan: “You know, Toph, we have some things in common with each other.” Toph: “We do?”

Obi-wan nodded. Obi-wan: “Much like you were, I was born in a wealthy family.” Toph: “Huh, you don’t say.” Obi-wan: “Yes, it’s true. However, I was not secluded from the rest of the world like you were, in fact, when I was very little, I was taken from my home to Coruscant after my skills with the Force were discovered. Here, I was trained to become a Jedi.” Toph: “You’re lucky; I wish I was taken some place where I could be able to hone my skills to their fullest. My parents never allowed me to leave. They even kept the fact that they had a daughter from the world as a means to “protect” me.” Obi-wan: “Huh, you don’t say. You know what? I hardly remember my family back at home. Although, I do have vague memories of playing with my younger brother Owen. I have occasionally visited my family back at home, but not often.” Toph: “Hm, too bad. I don’t have any idea what that’s like. Ever since I was young, I was always sick of being locked away from the rest of the world. I always hated how my parents kept me away from all of that because I’m blind. They even hired a private tutor to teach me basic Earthbending, being that’s how they always saw me.” Obi-wan: “But you went beyond your parents’ boundaries and became a very extraordinary Earthbender.” Toph: “Yes, and that second rate hack they hired couldn’t even teach a toddler how to Earthbend.”

Obi-wan chuckled a little. Obi-wan: “I see, so who did teach you to Earthbend?” Toph: “Well, when I was really young, I ran away from home. I know it seems wrong, but if you were in my position, you would probably do the same…or probably not, but anyway, I ran and hid in this cave. There, I met a couple of Badgermoles.” Obi-wan: “Badgermoles? You don’t mean the first ever Earthbending teachers, do you?” Toph: “Yes, the very same. The thing is they were blind, so we understood each other. After they took me in, they taught me how to Earthbend, as a means of living, not for fighting.” Obi-wan: “Hm, I see, and it’s because these Badgermoles are blind, they depend on their Earthbending senses to determine their surroundings.” Toph: “Exactly, it’s from them that I learned how to feel things out with Earthbending.” Obi-wan: “So, you’ve learned Earthbending directly from its true source. Is that why your bending is so incredibly powerful?” Toph: “Yes, that’s exactly it! It was through my Earthbending senses that I also invented a new Earthbending technique known as Metalbending, by feeling the vibrations inside the metal that allowed me to feel out the small fragments of earth inside the metal.” Obi-wan: “Yes, you already told us about that.”

Toph chuckled a little. Toph: “You know something else? I’m the only one who knows how to carry it out, I haven’t even taught the Avatar.” Obi-wan: “Really? Especially not Aang? Well…some way, I can understand that…you know, I don’t speak of my home very often, but you, you’re special, Toph. Not because you’re blind, but because you’re strong; one of the strongest people I have ever known. Everyone has something that holds them back, but not you, you always keep going; not even your blindness holds you back. I admire you for that.” Toph: “Hm, I like you, Obi-wan, you’re a good person and a great listener. It’s been a lot of fun talking to you.” Obi-wan: “I appreciate that, Toph. You’re a lot of fun to be around, too.”

Toph smiled, before long, she punched Obi-wan in the arm. Obi-wan: “Ow! What in blazes did you do that for!?!” Toph: “It’s how I show affection, when I do that, it means I really like someone.”

Obi-wan rubbed on his arm. Obi-wan: “Well, if this is what you do to the people you like, then I don’t want to know how you do treat people you don’t like.” Toph: “Yeah, good point.”

They both faced each other and laughed. Toph then took another sip of her drink. Toph: “By the way, these milkshake things rock. I’ve had 5 of these things and I still can’t get enough.” Obi-wan: “I'm…glad to hear it, Toph. I’m grateful that each of you have found ways to adjust to our world.” Toph: “You know what? I think I’m going to like it here, knowing that people like you occupy this world. As long as I stick close to you, I know everything will turn out all right.”

Obi-wan smiled then he looked out and watched the sunset along side her.

Later on, Aang stood with Katara and Zuko in front of a window and stared out at the city. Ahsoka then joined them. She looked at Aang and noticed something about him. Ahsoka: “You looked troubled. Are you OK, Aang?” Aang: “This place is so different. It’s very different from the world I’m use to, how the monks of my temple raised me.” Katara: “Not to mention that this place makes Ba Sing Se look so…small, or the fact that this place is completely made of metal.” Ahsoka: “What are the cities are there of your world?” Katara: “I guess, depending on the location, I’d say, some of them are the kind that are made of rock or other natural things. We had some building that were made of metal, of course, but none as advance as this.” Zuko: “Our most advanced engineers didn’t come close to being as efficient as this.” Ahsoka: “I take it you guys came from a simple place.” Katara: “Yes, we relied on the elements of our world for many things.” Ahsoka: “Sounds fascinating.” Katara: “Most of the buildings of the Earth Kingdom were constructed by Earthbenders. In the North Pole, the entire city is sculptured from ice by Waterbenders.” Ahsoka: “An entire city constructed from ice? I’m not sure how anyone would thrive in such an environment.” Katara: “Well, environments that have a lot of ice are perfect for Waterbenders because there’s always lots of water to bend.” Ahsoka: “So areas containing lots of water and ice are perfect environments for Waterbenders, while many rocky terrains are perfect for Earthbenders.” Katara: “Exactly, the Earth Kingdom capital of Ba Sing Se was built in one. The entire city was constructed by Earthbenders. It is surrounded by a huge wall to protect it from invaders. It takes more than 10 Earthbenders just to open and close them.” Ahsoka: “Whoa! That sounds like a lot was put into that 1 city. It must be huge!” Katara: “It’s the biggest city of our world. Although, this whole planet pretty much tops that.” Ahsoka: “I know but your Earth Kingdom city sounds really amazing.” Katara: “It is a pretty amazing place.” Ahsoka: “So, what sort of environments do Air Nomads find best?” Aang: “We set up our homes on mountains tops in secluded areas. My people have always detached themselves from the world and lived freely. We never resort to any type of strife or conflict, we always lived in peace and that was how we liked it. We would sometimes wander away from our homes and travel the world, looking for fun and adventure. That was the life I always wanted. I never wanted to be the Avatar.”

Ahsoka walked up to Aang and embraced him closely. Ahsoka: “I’m so sorry, Aang, for everything you had to endure. I may have some idea with what you’re going through.” Aang: “You do?”

Ahsoka let go of Aang and stood up in front of him. Ahsoka: “I was taken from my home when I was really young by Master Plo Koon, shortly after my abilities were discovered. Although, it was normal for someone like myself to be pulled away at such a young age.” Aang: “Not for me. I was never supposed to learn of my identity until I was a bit older. My childhood was taken away from me way too quickly.” Ahsoka: “I know, Aang, I know.”

Anakin stepped into the room. Anakin: “It’s time to go.” Aang: “Go? Where?” Anakin: “We’re leaving Coruscant. We’re going to show you kids what life is like in outer space.”

Aang became startled, then looked down. Anakin became concerned with Aang. Anakin: “Is there anything wrong, Aang?” Aang: “It’s just…no, it’s nothing. Let’s go.”

Aang walked out of the room. Katara and Zuko followed. Ahsoka walked up towards Anakin and shrugged her shoulders before leaving. Anakin followed.

      The Stay on Dinosaur Planet
             
      Chapter 1-Shabunga’s Surprise
       
      After successfully defeating the evil Andross for the last time, Fox and Pikachu landed back in Thorntail Hollow. Tricky: “Fox, Fox!” Fox: “Tricky?”
      Fox and Pikachu watched as Tricky ran towards them in an energetic way. Tricky: “Fox, you won’t believe this: Bubbles and Misty flew in this blue fox that looked almost like you.” Fox: “They did? Where are they, Tricky?” Tricky: “Follow me.”
                 Fox followed Tricky into the chamber where the Queen Earthwalker was held. There they found a crowd of dinosaurs blocking their way towards Bubbles, Misty, the King and Queen Earthwalker, and Krystal. Krystal was lying on the floor. When one of the dinosaurs spotted Fox and the prince, it told the others to move out of the way for the two of them so they could move up towards the girls and the king and queen. Bubbles: “Fox, we’re so glad to see you. Poor Krystal almost didn’t make it. Luckily, we were able to receive help from the King and Queen Earthwalker.” Fox: “Great, how did it go?” Misty: “Not so good, I’m afraid the king and queen’s help just wasn’t enough. She’s still in bad shape. Those Krazoa Spirits did her in good.” Fox: “Will she be OK?” Misty: “Of course. With some rest and plenty of food, she’ll be recovered in no time.” Fox: “OK, then.” Misty: “However, until she recovers to her normal health, we’ll have to remain on Dinosaur Planet.” Fox: “For how long?” Misty: “I’d say…for a couple of days should help her.” Bubbles: “That’s longer than I thought we would stay here for.” Misty: “We should make the best of it and watch over her until she recovers.” King Earthwalker: “Nonsense, after the way you guys saved our planet, you deserve a lot more than this.” Fox: “Yeah, I know, but Misty’s right, I mean, if we’re not going to watch over her then who will?” Voice: “I will.” Fox: “Huh?”
      Fox and the others watched as a Cloudrunner came out of the crowd. Cloudrunner: “I’ll stay and watch over Krystal. I’ve known her since the day she first landed on this planet.” Misty: “OK, then. While the Cloudrunner watches over Krystal, we’ll head to Cape Claw and meet the others there. We’ve received a message that they’re there, right now.” Fox: “Then let’s get going.” Misty: “All right, thanks for volunteering to watch over Krystal, noble Cloudrunner. If anything happens to her, just let us know.”
      So, Fox, Misty, Bubbles and Tricky headed straight for Cape Claw.
      When they arrived, they saw Princess Peach, Rayman, and Banjo. However, Kazooie was nowhere in sight. This was excellent news to Fox. After that, Fox and Misty set up their lounge chairs, took out their sunglasses and lounged on the chairs. (Adeleine painted the chairs out. Yes, Adeleine’s back and boy, was she happy to be painting for her friends again.) Later, General Pepper’s hologram popped up and congratulated Fox and his friends for saving the Lylat System again. Then Fox and Misty did something that reminded Peach of a little deal she made with the Thorntail storekeeper, Shabunga, after Fox bought the Snowhorn artifact. Therefore, she left the beach and headed straight for Thorntail Hollow.
                After Peach returned, the storekeeper, Shabunga, appeared out of nowhere behind Fox and Misty’s lounge chairs. Fox: “What the…? The Thorntail storekeeper? What are you doing here?” Shabunga: “I’ve got a little surprise for you and your red-headed friend, but first, I’m going to need to take some pictures.”
      Then, he grabbed the scarab he had always worn around his neck, which he used to roll out into a 3-digit #, and somehow rolled it out into a camera. Shabunga: “You, with the ears.” Fox: “Who? Me?” Shabunga: “Yes, you, I need you to stand over there.” Fox: “Um, OK.”
      He got up from his lounge chair, took off his sunglasses and walked not too far from where he was. Fox: “Here?” Shabunga: “Yes, there.”
      Fox folded his arms. Fox: “So now, what?” Shabunga: “Stay right there, just like that. That’s perfect.”
      He then held his camera up. Shabunga: “Now, smile and say “scarab”.”
      Then he snapped shot and looked at a projector on the back of the camera to see if she got what he wanted. Shabunga: “Hm, good, you may sit down, now.”
      Fox returned to his lounge chair. Shabunga: “You, with the headband.” Misty:” Who? Me?” Shabunga:” Yes, you, now I need you to stand over there.” Misty: “Um, alright.”
      She got up from her lounge chair, took off her sunglasses and walked to the same spot that Fox was asked to stand. As she stopped, she put one arm behind her back and grabbed on to her other arm. Misty: “Here?” Shabunga:” Yes, there, perfect, just the way I wanted it to be.”
      He held up his camera again. Shabunga: “Now, smile and say “scarabs”.”
      Then he snapped shot and looked at the projector on the back of the camera. Shabunga: “Yessssss, perfect, you may sit down.”
      Misty returned to her lounge chair. Shabunga: “Now, then, I’ll be right back. Don’t you go anywhere, you 2.”
      Then he was gone.
      Fox and Misty looked at each other and then back at where Shabunga once stood, er, floated. (I forgot that Shabunga has no legs, just a tail.) Then he reappeared with two lovely lockets: one with a picture of Fox in it, the other with a picture of Misty. He brought the lockets closer to the both of them. Shabunga: “Here you go, I hope you like them.” Fox: “Wow! What a great surprise. Self-portraits! Thank you.”
      Fox was about to grab the locket with his picture in it but Shabunga quickly pulled it away from him. Shabunga: “Don’t touch this; it isn’t for you.”
       He held the picture of Fox in front of Misty. Shabunga: “This is for her.”
      She grabbed the picture, he then held the other picture in front of Fox. Shabunga: “THIS is for you.”
      Fox took the locket that Shabunga wanted him to take. Fox: “Gee, thanks but, um…” Shabunga: “What’s wrong, don’t you like it?” Fox: “Yeah, I like it but you just gave me a picture of Misty.” Misty: “Yeah, you gave me a picture of Fox. Don’t you think you have us totally mixed-up?” Shabunga: “Of course, not. I gave you 2 a picture of each other for a good reason; these portraits contain a picture of your loved ones.”
      Misty became speechless but Fox was not satisfied. Fox: “Wait a minute, now you’re saying that we’re in love with each other?” Shabunga: “What? Don’t you get all nasty on me! I only gave you the lockets. I could always take yours back if you changed your mind about it.” Fox: “Who told you to give us these lockets? Princess Peach?” Shabunga: “Was that the name of that Blondie who asked me to make you these lockets?”
      Fox was angry. Peach’s mind: “Darn it, I thought by giving him those lockets would help Fox realize his true feelings about Misty. I guess I underestimated him.”
      Fox got up from his lounge chair and stood in front of Peach. Fox: “So, this is your next attempt; asking the storekeeper to create gifts that does all of your bragging for you, huh?” Peach: “Well, it was worth a try.” Fox: “Well, congratulations, you’ve failed.” Peach: “I …had a feeling you were going to say something like that.” Fox: “Yeah, I know. Come on, Peach, this isn’t funny.” Peach: “It’s wasn’t suppose to be funny, I’m just trying to tell you the truth. Please! You have to listen!” Fox: “I had it, Peach. You’ve changed too much since the day we couldn’t see each other anymore. First you’ve gone from caring to over protected and then from over protected to just plain ridiculous!!! Enough is enough!”
      Fox turned his back on Peach and walked away. He then dropped his locket on the floor as he continued walking to the far side of the beach. Peach: “But, Fox, you must understand…” Fox: “Save it!”
      Peach bowed her head in great sorrow. Shabunga: “That’s just great; I wasted my time and energy over making gifts for 2 couples who aren’t in love with each other.” Peach: “They ARE in love with each other; Fox is just too stubborn to see that.” Shabunga: “Oh, I see, well, maybe I should take back his locket since…” Peach: “No, leave it; I want him to pick it up after he gets back.”
      Shabunga nodded and disappeared. Tricky: “So, what is Fox doing over there, Bubbles?” Bubbles: “Oh, Fox just wants to be alone whenever he gets angry. But, don’t worry, he’ll pull through.” Tricky: “How long is he going to stand over there?” Bubbles:” Don’t know. It depends on how angry he is. If we’re lucky, he’ll be standing there for a few hours.”
                Later that night, Fox is still standing on the other side of the beach. Just after he looked back at his friends, who are sleeping, he turned around and walked back. He stopped in front of his locket that he tossed on the ground earlier to pick it up and returned to his lounge chair. He looked towards Misty and at the picture of Misty in his locket. Fox’s mind: “Can it be true?”
      Then he closed his eyes for the night.

      Many, many eons, ago, during the very early dawn of time, there lived a magical realm where many magical creatures lived. These magical creatures were born to protect and look after the many worlds as they formed. They were known as fairies and shaman. Out of all of them were a pair of magical beings that were well known out of many of them: a fairy named Ly and a shaman named Nikko. These 2 fell in love with each other; many say they invented love. They were to propose to each other and live together for all of eternity, however, there was another trait that Nikko was known for besides his love for Ly.
      Nikko once dedicated some of his existence to studying Darkness, a mysterious and untold magic that not many knew about. However, when he came close to figuring out Darkness, something went terribly wrong. The Darkness began to take control of him, taking possession of his body, his mind and his very well-being. He soon became evil and this evil renamed itself the Shaman Emperor.
      This terrible evil wanted to dominate over all of the dimensions that the magical creatures have planned to watched over. When they refused to let him take them over, he threatened to destroy them all with the use his dark magic. But before he came to that point, Ly stopped him. When he attempted to dispose of her, she held back his Dark magic as much as she could. She was then forced to send him to the Shadow Realm to prevent him from destroying everything.
      Worried that this might happen to many other mystic beings from being corrupted like Nikko, a powerful sorcerer sent out the Teenzies to guard over all the dimensions. He then sealed away the mystic beings into each of the dimensions that they have been assigned to protect and then  sealed off each of the dimensions from one another. As the dimensions begin to form, all seemed to have gone the way they were suppose to, or so they thought.
      Little did they suspect, the Shaman Emperor created portals from his imprisonment in the Shadow Realm to many of the dimensions. At that time, many of the worlds were corrupted and with that, he was able to gather enough Dark energy from the corruption to free himself. Ly managed to find out about this nefarious plan before any destruction took place, so she had made attempts to warn the people from these dimensions of his terrible destruction in order to prevent it. Unfortunately, the Teenzie guardians wouldn’t allow her to. Then, she tried to contact people of these upcoming dangers and succeeded in all of her attempts, except one.
      Ly foresaw a terrible war in one of the dimensions; a war in which she felt if not prevented, the Shaman Emperor will have more than enough dark energy to free himself. Ly attempted to contact 4 heroes from that dimension and bestowed upon each of them mystic items known as the Vaults of Light. When utilized, these mystic items can contain the souls of those with black hearts, thereby preventing the war. But the heroes did not use the mystic items and instead fought the war head on. At first, this was a terrible mistake that Ly thought could have been prevented even when she saw that terrible creatures made of pure Darkness infested that entire dimension. Realizing that it was too late to prevent the war, she gathered up as much light energy as she could muster.
      As the war ended, a black vortex formed. This vortex seen many times during the war but was obscured from many except mystic beings until it was large enough for the Shaman Emperor to emerge from it. He then released a vast amount of his Dark magic. It was powerful enough to break the barriers created by the Teenzie guardians and began to devour 1 dimension after another. Ly, who gathered more Light magic than she can contain, held back the dark magic before all the dimensions could be destroyed.
      As all this was occurring, a young girl watched in terror as many of the dimensions were being threatened. She then decided to take matter into her own hands and consulted the Teenzie guardians to fuse as many of the surviving dimensions as they could. By doing this, Ly would have less to protect and can force the Shaman Emperor back into the Shadow Realm. However, doing this could risk all life in all of the surviving dimensions, but they were convinced that they had no other choice. So, they fused as many dimensions as they could, allowing Ly to have less to protect and she was then able to push the Shaman Emperor back into the Shadow Realm. She then created 6 mystic gems known as the Lock Crystals to seal the portal to the Shadow Realm. She then separated the spirits of the 4 heroes from their physical bodies and sealed them away in the Realm of Nothingness as punishment for their part in releasing the Shaman Emperor. And finally, she meditated to restore her powers.
      She remains resting as of today. All life began to form in the newly fused dimensions. But how do I know all of this, you ask? Because I was the girl. I assisted Ly in preventing what we now call the Rifter: the end of all existence. I am Tikal and this is my story.

      OK, um, since I have been taking too long to write out my Journey Through Kanto Story, I think I'm going to write about it. I have so much on this that I want to share. There are so many important events for my story that are mentioned in this. This has been something that I have left sitting for too long, since like my childhood, back when I was really into the anime. I will be writing summaries of the different episodes that I have in mind in this story. A lot of them will be important events that happen in the story. I can't wait to share them.
      I intend to tell you everything that I can about this journey and perhaps even beyond. Looking forward to it.

      Alright, so here's what's going on. I have decided to post on of my greatest stories of my beloved Ultimate Story series: Ultimate Story 2. This story is my rewrite of my most favorite video game of all times: Starfox Adventures. Back when this game came out, I got it for Christmas and I almost instantly fell in love with it. It was amazing!!!
      I wrote this back when I was in middle school and what a year it was. The year that this game came out, I was having the worst school year of my life. I was heckled by my 8th grade homeroom teacher. He was horrible and the stress that I've been going through because of it fed on my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Getting into this game was a way of coping with the stress.
      This was the first story that I've ever finished writing. I completed it on May 22 2003. It was so amazing. It was also back when I put the first Ultimate Story on hold for several years just to stay with the times. Also, because this is a second installment to my Ultimate Story, it will contain some spoilers as to what happened during the first story. If you want to read into the events leading up to this story, be sure to check out my Ultimate Story scrapbook. It should tell you a lot of the important events that take place.
      Now then, I will begin posting one of my favorite stories in the series and perhaps one of the most important stories of all, to me, at least. So, enjoy.

      Ok, so here's what's going on. I'm thinking about making a forum involving a lot of ideas that I plan on putting into my story. I am still working on them so I want to put them on here just to show what's been going on. It's been taking too long for my story to really get out there and I have a lot of ideas still sitting in storage. It is becoming very difficult for me to remember what I did and I try to write them out in order to make sure that the ideas don't fade away inside my messy, disorganized mind. So I will really put them out there and show you what I have in store for my beloved story. You're more than welcome to check them out whenever you like.

      Oh, and a fair warning to everyone. If you hate spoilers, DON'T LOOK INTO THIS FORUM!!! It will be full of spoilers!! If you don't mind spoilers, go ahead and look into it, but this will ruin the surprise of what goes on in my story once you do. YOU. HAVE. BEEN. WARNED!!
      Enjoy!!
