"Pai Sho Me the Way" by bballtoday
My first fan-fic, so please be critical. Give me what you can, and enjoy!
Dedicated to puggie178, because he got me thinking of stories I could make.
Taak: Thank you so much sir. I hope with this information I will finally find it.
Pong: Anyone should be able to taste the sweet pleasure of the best tea in the Earth Kingdom. It was my pleasure.
Taak: Trust me, I?m not going there for the tea. (Turns his back, flips the white lotus tile, and starts walking away) Goodbye.
Pong: Goodbye, and good luck, son.
kataanger0, I think I should tell you that I used your Avatar in my new fanfic. Thanks for making an Earthnation Avatar! I hope you like the way I had him, uh, pass.
-Without you I'm a drummer girl that can't keep a beat. And ice cream truck on a deserted street. I hope that you're coming to stay ("Waitin' on a Sunny Day" by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band)
Alright, thank you, Kataanger0! I am almost ready to post it, have an idea for almost all of it, but still can't figure out the resolution. It'll come to me as I write. Anyways, I doubt Mike and Bryan (the writers) knew exactly how Aang would stop Ozia when they started. They found a great way!
-OW! Ba ba da dop, Ba da da dop, Ba da da da da da dop, Ba ba da dop, Ba da da dop, Ba da da da da da dop!
("Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis)
Okay, Madtay, thanks for the confidence in it. I started it, and have some ideas for it, but I am going to try to get farther in it so if I start to fall behind or don't have time to keep making them...you know. I should start it by June, when I'm out of school, and should have more time on my hands. This one is a little more difficult to write than "Pai Sho Me The Way" and a little more interesting, I'd say.
-Tell me why you want to lay there, revel in your abandon. Honey, it don't make no difference to me baby, Everybody has to fight to be free, you see, You don't have to live like a refugee. ("Refugee" by Tom Petty)
So I'm debating if I should make a new fanfic, because I have an idea, but I have no clue how I will end it. It could be a little complicated too, but that's because it's partially about a spirit. Please tell me what you think.
-And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast. They stab it with their steely knives, But they just can't kill the beast ("Hotel California" by The Eagles)
-It's wonderful to be here, it's certainly a thrill. You're such a lovely audience we'd like to take you home with us, we'd love to take you home. ("Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by the Beatles)
When I mentioned harmony in the end, I kinda took a Gandhi quote and changed it a little. I want to give him credit. It?s not completely the same, but I don?t want to plagiarize or anything, or have any troubles using words that aren?t all mine. I was looking for something great to say, and what?s greater than Gandhi?
And thank you for all the support Madtay! I find it funny how we both posted at the same time last night That's so awesome! Kinda odd, but awesome!
-And the time will come when you see we're all one. And life flows on within you and without you ("Within You Without You" by the Beatles)
"And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -The Beatles
____Qui Lee stood there in defeat, held his hands up, and told me, **Taak, I want to congratulate you. After this long journey you truly have come far, and I hope you like being a White Lotus. Chasing you around, I doubted you a bit, but I am so PROUD of you.**
____A smile ran from my face, and I showed confusion now. Qui Lee turned around and shouted, **Bumi! Master Piandao! Come out! Our recruit has passed his final test!**
____I looked up to see Bumi and Master Piandao flying to the ditch with full force from Bumi*s earth launch. Bumi caught themselves in the earth. **Very good job, Qui Lee. Thanks for helping us with this recruit.** He said laughing and snorting, **And Taak, well done. You have succeeded with flying colors!**
____**Yes, Taak, Congratulations! You have shown us that you have everything it takes to be a member of the Order of the White Lotus. And maybe someday you can help us with recruiting like our favorite new member, Qui Lee,** said Master Piandao.
Journal of a White Lotus:
Okay, I*m not done with journals, but that last one was the very last journal I made before I became a White Lotus. I got my very own sword, learned that all of that was a plan, with a few exception, and joined the Order of the White Lotus, Baby! I was entered in 2 weeks after that big test, at a small flower shop in a desert in the Earth Kingdom. I was excited to tell a lot of people, but I couldn*t. Remember, the Order used to be a secret society before Korra*s time. If there is one thing that I have learned, it*s that, like this journey for me, happiness will come when what you dream, believe, and do are in harmony, and harmony is the definition of the Order.
Haha, freshman can only go if they're with a junior or senior, I think. And we have a winter formal for everyone too.
But you did really improve from start to finish, and the character development was great! I like how Qui Lee went from bad to good, then to bad again. I don't really see much you need to improve on though, I really enjoyed this story.
Haha. Freshman! At my school, Freshman only go if they're with a senior, is it different there? Prom is mostly a Junior/Senior dance. Homecoming is the one for everyone.
Okay, enough school talk, this is Avatar. I feel like my writing later in this got better than the beginning. I'll just say it shows the growth of Taak, and that it was on purpose What do you think I can improve if/when I make another one? One thing for sure, I don't want to do what I did for "interactions" again. I kinda like the normal way more.
-Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans ("Beautiful Boy" by John Lennon)
I had no other choice, again, so I made a run for it, again. Qui Lee threw rocks and words at me, **You can run but you can*t hide. Why don*t you just give in and join me?**
**I*d rather join Bumi and Master Piandao than join you!** I said as I ran by the side of Master Piandao*s place.
**Your choice,** and as those words came out, a rock wall came up right in front of me. I jumped up to grab what looked like a bar above me to stop myself. And stopping myself was successful, but I stopped the wrong way, by falling on my tooshy. The **bar** was actually a lighting torch, but it was something so I held on to it.
I jumped off the ledge, to get myself on solid ground, but I couldn*t even control my own jump. Qui Lee cause the earth under me to launch me in his direction while he chucked a big boulder at me. And I would*ve been pebbles if I didn*t do a 360 degree turn, and I gained control right as I was in reach of Qui Lee. I swung my arm, striking my fist in his face, landing a huge one that gave me enough time to decide what to do next.
I made a run for the field. The place where I would practice, and the one place I have always been safe. I made it there with little time to think, and jumped into the ditch, which I had never bothered to check out before, thinking that Qui Lee never watched me go there so it*d be unpredictable.
____I heard Qui Lee arrive at the field and he made his appearance obvious, **Taak, I have something to tell you! Good idea, but you forgot one crucial fact. I*m an earthbender, and I can feel you in that ditch.** He said as he popped up on the horizon, **You have only just trapped yourself,** and he jumped down, **Also, Taak, I hate to say it but your journey is up, along with your time.**
**No Qui Lee, I have won. Why don*t you look down,** I demanded from him.
He did so and realized that he lost, and the words, **Black powder,** came from his mouth, as he stood in it.
*Not just black powder, but black blasting powder. And guess who has a lighting source,** I bragged lighting the torch and holding it high.
Sorry to leave you waiting, madtay, but I was really busy and couldn't get to it until late at night. Whatever, it was worth it. She said yes, and now I've got a date for prom. Anyways, the last 2 chapters are coming right your way! So at any point, madtay and whoever else is reading, say what ever you want about the story. Thank you to anyone who has stopped by, I hope it's been as much fun reading as it's been making this.
-It's too late, my time has come. Sent shivers down my spine, bodies aching all the time. ("Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen)
My internet went out when I first tried sending this, so sorry if it shows up twice.
____With no time to think, the rock chucking began. I ducked and dodged, swerved and swiveled, and even rolled and ran. Actually, I mostly ran, that*s what I was good at and Qui Lee knew it, so he saw it coming. Most of the time I out ran him, but this time, unlike others he used earthbending to help him run faster. He was playing with me, and tripped me up very quickly.
____On the ground, he latched my hands. I almost lost hope and gave up, but I once did that in this experience and I wouldn*t let it happen again. I was only loosely clamped to the ground, and as Qui Lee tried getting my legs I did a backwards summersault to free my hands.
____**Good trick, I*m surprised I haven*t gotten you yet. But your luck is sure to run out.** I made my way around the attacks he sent at me getting closer and closer to him, when I saw where Master Piandao was when I knocked him down and started for that spot. I got there and took his sword, feeling Qui Lee*s rock sent right at me.
____I felt the rock, swung my hips like my life depended on it, and the sword followed, slicing the rock in half. Qui Lee could only stare, seeing his rock fail, and see a door open for me to take advantage of.
____Then, I felt the sword in only my left hand, and it was slipping. The sword slipped, and flew out of my reach just like my chances of winning this fight.
____Checking to see if Bumi was really knocked out of what seemed like a heart attack, and if Master Piandao was really sucked into the earth, I confusedly asked, **What is going on? Qui Lee, why?**
____He got straight to it, **I want to wipe out the White Lotus because I believe in one nation, like when I first met you, I kept asking if you were earthnation. What they stand for is sick! Unity? Are you joking?** He chuckled a little, **Why mix the great Earth Kingdom with those other scrub nations, who will just bring us down? I*m not saying I want the Earth Kingdom to expand and control the others. I want us to stay strong, and everyone else can turn their backs because they don*t even deserve to look at our greatness! Also, their land isn*t even good enough for us. They are trash and they deserve to stay in their trash-holes, they call nations!**
____He continued as I stared at him with disbelief, **Thank you for helping me take out two such high-ranking members. I saw my opportunity to start this when I found you, a young boy who wanted to join the great,** he put a mocking emphasis on great, **Order of the White Lotus. You did it, and now that means you are my next target, but since I*m such a nice guy, and you are from the Earthnation I will give you the choice.**
____**I will never join you!** I screamed as soon as he finished his last word. I took out my sword, confident that I just passed and ready to defend myself. Confident to defend my society, my group, MY ORDER.
____As quick as I was to draw, Qui Lee was as quick to disarm me. He threw one sharp rock at the sword, slicing the blade in half. **Ha! You think this is a sword duel! Sorry, but that won*t work against me.** I stood there. What could I do? I couldn*t bend, didn*t have a sword or anything to defend myself with and I was up against a master earthbender, with a ferocious, fire-y plan in mind.
