In some AU, a few Princesses have a convo about the weather :p Yue/Azula for a kofi request!
Zuko is 100% a jock (not even a nerd just a jock with mental illness) and the only reason why he might like theatre as an art is because it displays the most athleticism
Sokka is a nerd aspiring to jock levels who only picks up sword fighting to look and feel cool
The fact that Aang was the only consistent partner in crime for Katara, Toph, AND Zuko, yet everyone headcanons any other duo possible WHEN THERE IS CANON EVIDENCE THAT AANG WOULD GLADLY JOIN THEM ALL THROUGHOUT THE SHOW….is just…so disappointing to me.
I really don’t get how y’all conflated him being unwilling to take a life with him being unwilling to do any form of crime like he didn’t say he looked up to Pirates and eagerly scammed people with Toph…
don’t forget that he gladly joined in with Katara’s ecoterrorism. my boy Aang was not a goody two shoes
EXACTLY! he was crim, but he had a code!!
Hey! I don’t think if you’ve ever covered the topic before, but I’ve been thinking about how the show portrays Aang’s romantic jealousy (specifically in the ember island episode) & I was wondering if you had any thoughts on whether this would be something he would have to work through later or if it’s maybe just an isolated thing (esp considering it happens after he’s seen himself portrayed as childish by the play)? Like he didn’t show any jealousy when Katara was crushing on Jet even tho it was clear Aang already had some sort of crush on her at that point. I personally hc Aang as being pretty relaxed in relationships when he’s older but I was curious to know if you had any thoughts on how he would handle jealousy or if it would even be an issue at all for him?
do i think aang is going to struggle with jealousy and possessiveness as a massive, crippling character flaw for his whole adult life? no, because for all the reasons you’ve elaborated above, he’s not possessive or controlling, in fact culturally the air nomads had no possessions - a principle i’m sure also extended into their romantic lives. what i *do* think aang will struggle with no matter who he’s paired with is the sense of alienation that comes from being both the avatar and the last (known) airbender. and i think that’s the real source of him being upset in TEIP - it’s the first time he’s really seeing himself and his culture through the eyes of the fire nation, while IN the fire nation, and confronting the reality that his closest friends, and the girl he loves, might feel similarly about him. this also foreshadows him exploding at everyone later on when they make light of his desire to end the war without killing ozai. tldr; aang isn’t insecure and “jealous” because he wants to claim ownership of anyone, so much as there’s only so much racially-motivated scorn and derision he can handle before he gets tired of it. he’s in a unique and unenviable position as the avatar, and i think that is a struggle he’ll have to reckon with the rest of his life no matter who he’s with.
[ID: semi realistic digital drawing of Azula, Ty Lee and Mai from Avatar: the last airbender. They are pictured from the calfs up and facing the audience like they are taking a picture. Azula is half sitting with her head tilted slightly back, wearing a dark red blazer, a belt with chains and a yellow checked tennis skirt. Ty Lee is close beside her holding up a peace sign and wearing an oversized pink jumper that says ‘strawberry milk’ and has a strawberry on it, though both are partially obscured by her sleeve. She is also wearing a lighter pink tennis skirt with another strawberry on it and a matching pink mask under her chin. Mai is leaning her head on Ty Lee’s shoulder and looking off to the side. She is wearing black lipstick, a red shirt, a dark purple pleated skirt and over the knee grey socks. The background is pink. END ID]
may i offer you a katara?
[ID: A digital drawing of Katara wearing a Ming dynasty style hanfu and coat with a Mo’e/headband. Her hair is in braids and her coat is decorated with the moon cycle. She has her right hand lifted in a fist and her left in partially hidden under her coat in an outward pose. There are snowy slopes in the background.]
Arranged marriage au between Zuko and Yue where theyre both miserable (Zuko throws a fit while Yue just bears it) but too duty-bound to object until Zuko shows Yue his soft side on accident and she discovers this guy isn’t mean he’s just really stupid deep down and they become friends
OR: Zuko gets kidnapped somehow and is held ransom by the NWT as a political gambit and Yue takes pity on him and has to use her political knowledge to somehow free him and end the tensions between the FN & NWT
Wtf fruity little sun/moon royals on a life changing field trip
(listen @fruitysokka said what if yue lived and she was gay and I could not rest until I drew her & zuko getting a field trip about self acceptance and understanding that sometimes putting yourself and your loved ones before duty is actually Fine and Good)
bonus brown haired yue because I like the hc that her hair return dark once she gives her blessing back to the moon spirit

For the ship ask game: Ty Lee x Katara?
Please bestow upon me your thots, madame! 💖
i guess it’s not so much that i don’t ship it as it doesn’t inspire strong feelings in me because there are other characters i find their dynamics more interesting with. i also feel like katara has very strong values about the kind of women she respects, and most of the fire nation girls fall outside of that, and with ty lee especially it would be a hard sell for her to respect ty lee enough to consider her a partner. from ty lee’s perspective i can see her admiring katara for her similarities to azula, but also those similarities bringing up painful shit for her and maybe even causing her to fall into an unhealthy pattern of adoration/worship of katara that would diminish herself. so…i guess i see it being a troubled/sad/difficult ship? lmao
people exploring katara and ty lee as flawed, complex individuals instead of what unfortunately happens a lot where katara is saintly and ty lee is innocent and penitent. let ‘em be messy. let katara drunkenly sleep with ty lee one night and then reject her the next day because she’s scared of what ty lee brought out in her. let ty lee feel wounded and dejected and go to a dark place and then decide she never wants to see katara again. LET THEM BE MESSY.
see above! lol like many atla ships especially the ones involving the female characters i crave more of an edgy, complex rendering of their inner lives, i guess. i know that sounds like a terribly snobby stance, i just don’t know any other way to be ;A;
Not sure what to call this…Face Inspirations, I guess? Just some collages I made of Inuit/Alaska Native/First Nation/Native American people that remind me of Water Tribe characters. Think of it as reference pictures for any realistic fanart you may want to do.
