So everyone is doing this Kataang week thing, huh? Yay! C=
One bit of the first episode that always gets me is, well, how little reason Katara has to believe in the Avatar at all.
The oldest person she knows wasn’t born when the Avatar was around. There is just… no explanation for why this 14 year old girl has such overwhelming faith. I mean, Katara is likely just a few months shy of a very painful conversation with Gran-Gran, where “fairytales” and “time to grow up” are both used a lot.
Luckily, that doesn’t happen.
“But I haven’t lost hope.”
Instead, she finds the Avatar.
“I still believe that somehow, the Avatar will return to save the world.”
And he saves the world.
