Yue eventually found herself falling for Sokka and felt awkward around him because she knew that she was going to have to marry Hahn.


Yue met Sokka when he arrived to the Northern Water Tribe along with Aang and Katara. Sokka awkwardly flirted with Yue but she enjoyed it and agreed to spend time with him. She eventually found herself falling for Sokka and ran away from him. He later confronted her on this before she kissed him and revealed that she was engaged. Yue and Sokka decided to be friends and still spent time together but Yue was upset because her feelings for him made things complicated. When the Fire Nation attacked the Northern Water Tribe, Sokka was assigned to guard Yue. She eventually gave up her life to become the new moon spirit even though Sokka protested. Yue kissed him one final time before departing.


Yue is a rather popular minor character in the Avatar fandom. Many fans like her for her name, white hair and overall beauty. So many fans felt bad for her when she was revealed to be in an arranged marriage. A lot fans shipped her with Sokka because the two were in love. After Yue became the moon spirit, Sokka eventually told Zuko about how his first girlfriend turned into the moon to which Zuko responded with "that's rough buddy." This quickly became a meme and lot of fans draw fan-art of Sokka being in love with the moon.
