-->"Man, sometimes I forget what a powerful bender that kid is."

One particular morning, Aang comes to a stunning revelation: Katara is hot. This revelation becomes even stronger when they meet a renowned fortune teller and he overhears part of her fortune "You are going to marry a powerful bender.", but is dismayed when his fortune contains only a tiny (fake) counterpart love prediction. Meanwhile, Sokka tries to convince the locals that Aunt Wu's predictions are either false or can be explained by science. When Aang comes to him for advice, Sokka misinterprets it to mean he likes a local girl (See AbhorrentAdmirer in tropes section) and tells Aang to be aloof. This doesn't work, so Aang instead tries a rare flower that only grows on an active volcano. When the group discover that the volcano's ready to blow, they have to convince the whole town that Aunt Wu was wrong and band together to avert the catastrophe.

* VaguenessIsComing: Wu predicts "a great battle between the forces of good and evil" for Aang but does not elaborate. Subverted in that Aang knows full well what she's referring to, as it's what they've been preparing for the entire series thus far.

* NoAntagonist: The only danger comes from the volcano. In many stories like this Aunt Wu would be a malicious conwoman, but there's no indication given that she doesn't believe in her own abilities (although she does admit to reshaping predictions so as to be more palatable for the people who receive them, and she's clearly making stuff up when Katara starts asking her questions about ''everything'')

** One man is told he will be wearing a certain pair of shoes when he meets his true love. So of course, he wears them everyday. Hearing this one drives Sokka nuts.
