Reimagining A:TLA as though Aang were the only adolescent in the series. (Rebloggable Tumblr link here: [link])

On their journey north, the newly formed 'Gaang' would've made their pit stop and the events would've unfurled the same ways they did in canon. There's definitely a different play on dynamics, however. I chose not to depict the heavier stuff (like the Agni Kai or when Aang sees Gyatso's skeleton) to better focus on that dynamic and how much more different the littler things might've been.

Since Sokka and Katara are probably nearing their late 20's by now, it's natural that one of them would eventually grow flustered by Aang's overabundance of energy. Finding Momo and leapfrogging right over hungry!man Sokka is just one thorn in the side, haha.

If Aang is older, I think there would be a lot more AANGST upon finding out about his people.

in the canon, when katara says "we're your family now", aang calms down, and end the avatar state. in your AU, i imagine aang saying something like: "i've never had a mother before" (you, know, being a monk and everything)

You know, despite everything, I think everyone being an adult but Aang would've been a pretty interesting scenario. Because of scenes like this.
This is your savior, everyone. An energetic 12 year old

I think Katara would definitely have a lot more patience with him than Sokka would, like in the show.

Typical Aang. :D He still is a kid at heart despite being a teenager.
