    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the best Avatar fics I've ever read. The hope, the growth, it just jumps off the page. People doing what's not easy but what is just the right thing to do

    Summary

    “Ya see, Sandy?” Bunnymund is saying. “Quit your worrying. The kid says he’s fine.”

    And almost, it ends there. Almost, they go their separate ways and let it stand for another four years, or another three hundred, for even Sanderson wonders whether he has been mistaken, after all. But Jack is agreeing with the Guardian of Hope, carrying obliviously onward. “Am I ever,” the boy says, fervently. “The 21st century’s great. You wouldn’t believe what people just throw out these days.”

    The admission comes like a wave striking rocks on a stony shore; it raises icy splashes of dread wherever its spray hits. Three horrified stares – and one that is not so terribly surprised – turn to the boy’s face.

    The spirit of winter falters to a stop, the reaction not the one he had anticipated. “What?” he asks.

    Summary

    A fable set in Ancient China, featuring a surprisingly familiar narrator. Set in the same universe as Barry Hughart's Bridge of Birds, but not quite a crossover.
    A (scruffy, smartass) sage of Peking goes to hell and back for his ghostly mentor.
