Go To

Legend of Katara is an AU Avatar: The Last Airbender Fan Fic by Kelev. In a universe where Aang was found by Hakoda on the day Katara was born, and died after he was released, the Avatar Spirit passed on to Katara. Katara begins her own journey to stop the Fire Nation at the age of 12, leaving with her brother, the bison Appa, who has been aiding the tribe since Hakoda found him, and Aang's spirit.[[Dead Fic: The last update was on November 6th, 2016]].
