Journey of the Avatar // An Avatar Cycle fanmix // Listen here

The Avatar must be compassionate towards all people, and the only way to do that is to live with them. The Avatar must experience sadness, anger, joy, and happiness. By feeling all these emotions, it helps you understand how precious human life is, so you will do anything to protect it. If you were an all-powerfull spirit living on the top of some mountain.... you wouldn't have much in common with an ordinary person.

1) Monster by Paramore

You were my conscience, so solid, now you’re like water
And we started drowning, not like we’d sink any further
But I let my heart go, it’s somewhere down at the bottom
But I’ll get a new one and come back for the hope that you’ve stolen

Death of the previous Avatar/the Avatar Spirit transferring to a new host

2)The Adventure by Angels and Airwaves

Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that’s dead shall be re-grown,
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.
Hello, here I am,
And here we go, life’s waiting to begin.

the birth of a new Avatar/unbridled potential

3) You’re Gonna Go Far Kid by the Offspring

And now you’ll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

being a child/discovering they can bend/learning home element

4) Cool Kids by Echosmith

She sees them walking in a straight line, that’s not really her style.
And they all got the same heartbeat, but hers is falling behind.
Nothing in this world could ever bring them down.
Yeah, they’re invincible, and she’s just in the background.

anytime they felt a little different, where their bending was stronger than usual, or spirits whispered to them in their sleep

5) Savior of the Dreaming Dead by Malcolm Brown, “Doctor” by George Buzinkai, “Savior of the Waking World” by Toby ‘Radiation’ Fox

Instrumental

turning 16 and being told of their identity

6) Magnetic by Jesse J

Take me to a place I know
Anywhere that feels like home
Somewhere that if I let go
Someone’s gonna catch my soul

traveling to the next nation in the cycle/learning next element

7) Send Me On My Way by the Rusted Roots

Well, I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl, we will
I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl

learning their opposite element

8) The Night Starts Here by Stars

The pleasure part, the afterthought, the missing stone in the graveyard
The time we have, the task at hand, the love it takes to become a man
The dust at dawn is rained upon, attaches itself to everyone
No one is spared, no one is clean
It travels places you’ve never been or seen before

learning their last element

9) Starry Eyed (SubVibe Bootleg Remix) by Ellie Goulding

Oh, everybody’s starry-eyed
And everybody glows
Oh, everybody’s starry-eyed
And my body goes
Whoa oh oh ah ah

entering the avatar state for the first time

10) Mountain and Sea by Ingrid Michaelson

You can move me if you want to
You can move a mountain, you can move a mountain
You can move me if you want to
You can move everything, you can move everything

mastering the avatar state

11) The Cave by Mumford and Sons

So tie me to a post and block my ears
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
I know my call despite my faults
And despite my growing fears

all the public parts of being the avatar: kissing babies, sitting through political meetings, etc

12) Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights) by Anberlin

Live, I wanna live inspired
Die, I wanna die for something higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see this life’s not about me

the ones the avatar holds dear; lovers, friends, family

13) Wherever You Will Go by Charlene Soraia

If I could, then I would
I’ll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I’ll go wherever you will go

avatars usually have an animal guide

14) Rootless by Marina and the Diamonds

A kingdom without a king
With no sense of belonging
For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
But there’s somebody that reminded them of me

connecting to the spirit world/meeting their previous lives

15) Hall of Fame by the Script featuring Will.I.Am

Standing in the hall of fame (yeah)
And the world’s gonna know your name (yeah)
'Cause you burn with the brightest flame (yeah)
And the world’s gonna know your name (yeah)

returning home after training for (usually) over a decade

16) Richat by Mark Petrie

Instrumental

finding their earthly attachment whether it be a person or a cause or a place

17) Flesh and Bone by The Killers 

Somewhere outside that finish line
I square up and break through the chains
And I hit like a raging bull
Anointed by the blood, I take the reins

facing their Firelord Ozai, Chin the Conqueror, or their Amon

18) Saviour by Lights

It will never change
if you want it to stay the same
I really hate it
but I know it’s hard to choose if you’re chained

a track for all the Avatars that died young or otherwise forgotten

19) Farewell by Various

Instrumental

crossing the threshold that is death and reincarnating again
