  3. Summary

    "The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices on downtown posts and billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not."

     

    "Magic," the man in the grey suit repeats, turning the word into a laugh. "This is not magic. This is the way the world is, only very few people take the time to stop and note it."

     

    "The heart of the tale and the ideas behind it are simple. Time has altered and condensed their nuances, made them more than story, greater than the sums of their parts. But that requires time. The truest tales require time and familiarity to become what they are."

     

    "Then the iron gates shudder and unlock, seemingly by their own volition. They swing outward, inviting the crowd inside.
    Now the circus is open.
    Now you may enter."

    -The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

    Summary

    Hakoda tightened his arms around Sokka, trying to memorize the imprint of half of his world between his arms. “I will miss you so much,” he whispered, jagged and rough with emotion.

    Hakoda hugged Katara like he had hugged Sokka, trying to memorize the other half of his world, pressed between his arms.

    Hakoda stood on a ship on a westbound current, and he faced out towards the sea. The fleet left, and he did not look back.

    Love is messy. Love in war is painful, and messy, and never easy. Sometimes you end up hurting people you love, even without meaning to. The real question is, when you do, what do you do? What do you do to fix it? (Can you fix it?)

    Hakoda confronts his failures, and his mistakes, and his children, who he never meant to hurt. Nothing and everything gets fixed, and it will will be okay in the end, even if it hurts like hell along the way.
