Fandom therapy through mixing! I am such a sucker for these tragic, messed-up, but ultimately strong kids' narratives. This mix was originally going to be a lot shorter, with just one track per kid, but I kind of couldn't help myself and added (canon) ship-related tracks and overall gen narrative tracks. So this is long and I'm only half-apologizing for that.


My Body is a Cage - Arcade Fire (Aang)
I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

Wandering Kind - Laura Veirs (Katara)
A twinkling tie filled up her eyes
And poured out to the lawn
A made a raft of the scraps from her skirt
And sailed 'til dawn

Trying to Pull Myself Away - Glen Hansard (Sokka)
Work, work, brighten the corners that will never see
Untangle the thoughts that you know what they mean
I hope that the answer didn't come too late

Sea Lion Woman - Feist (Suki)
Sea Lion woman
Dressed in green
Silver lining and golden seams

Kids on the Run - The Tallest Man on Earth (after the siege of the North Pole)
And, no, I will never speak of ways 'cause I know you won't try them
But all the weapons raining from the sky will be ours to embrace
And the cold sky will write us a song

Glass Ceiling - Metric (Mai)
Only know what I'm told, only know what I'm told
Fast asleep daydreaming
Start to push, break your own glass ceiling

Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Toph)
Try and hit the spot
Get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you're a
Crime, crime, crime of love

Dust Bowl Dance - Mumford & Sons (Zuko)
Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done, and do my time

Pretty in Pink - Dresden Dolls (Ty Lee)
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place in the side of our lives
Where nothing is ever put straight

This Tornado Loves You - Neko Case (Sokka/Suki)
But still you are nowhere, still you are nowhere
Nowhere in sight
Come out to meet me, run out to meet me

Boy with a Coin - Iron & Wine (after the fall of Ba Sing Se)
A boy with a coin he crammed in his jeans
Then, making a wish, he tossed in the sea
And walked to a town that all of us burned
When God left the ground to circle the world

Alpha Shallows - Laura Marling (Zuko/Mai)
You'll work your thumbs they are sore
And you'll work my heart till it's raw
And you'll call and you'll call but you'll never be told

Girl with One Eye (Bayou Percussion) - Florence + the Machine (Azula)
I told her not to fuss and relax
Pretty little thing stopped me in my tracks
But now she sleeps with one eye open
That's the price she paid

Of Many Colors - Alela Diane (Aang/Katara)
Indigo is blue like the you of me or you
Ebony is darker than the deepest
Emerald like the water we swam in for awhile
To a man of many colors I give word

My Rights versus Yours - The New Pornographers (after the Hundred-Year War)
Fingers in paints, in paints we brought
Thinking we'd leave them when we're not
Flying the flags of new empires in rags

This looks really good. I'm sorry that I couldn't have been more help, but I'm really glad you were able to put it all together. I'm excited to listen to it the whole way through.

Hey, you came up with "Alpha Shallows" which is one of my favorite selections for the mix and the title came from another track you found!

Seeing this combined with all the Korra information today just makes everything better.

Yes! Having a release date is great, but I love that the trailer really focused on Korra's character and we got some more snippets of Tenzin!

Snippets of Tenzin and Amon plus another trailer today/yesterday it was on The Wall Street Journal. I'm so excited now!

I saw that one! Yes, they're definitely ramping up my excitement.

This is fantastic! Really lovely cover art too.

Would you consider re-uploading? ♥

I'm probably not going to reupload, but I have turned it into an 8tracks mix!
