As I said, they are only scars. She didn't kill or seriously injure anyone, jeez it wasn't even on purpose. | do they not know how scars are caused? tf?? i think that anon needs to go back and do their research
Imagine being a fan of ATLA and not understanding that scars are a big deal.
imagine you are fifteen years old taking your little sister to the grocery store because your dad is busy and your grandmother is old and you need food. as you turn a corner you accidentally ram your shopping cart into God with a capital G and he promises to show you the world you’ve never seen from inside the ten square miles of your hometown in exchange for your company. you hate the risk but your demigod sister has untapped potential and an unrelenting determination to get ghost, so you follow God with a capital G through heaven and hell and back. God with a capital G is twelve and wiser than even your grandmother and treats everything like a game and he’s your brother now and suddenly you would (and have and will) kill and die for him. your first love becomes a different god and you add her name to the list of things (your childhood, your vulnerability, your parents, your safety) you don’t have the time to grieve right now (or ever) and you become a man on foreign soil and your dad isn’t there to see it. you are fifteen and God with a capital G’s best friend and your little sister– sisters, now– are the most powerful demigods on the planet and you are the only one keeping three divine tweens focused on saving the world and you are still not allowed to say fuck.
i’m not proud of how long it took me to figure out that this was talking about ATLA
Imagine the fearless leader of the Fire Nation, one of the most powerful benders in the world, leading a strategy meeting and his voice is commanding, everyone is hanging onto his every word. Then, he stops mid-sentence, bends down, picks up baby Izumi and starts cooing and baby talk. After, he resumes the meeting but still holding the baby who will not sit still and is crawling all over him and Zuko is the only one non-plussed by this.
Imagine Mai in the doorframe knowing that she shouldn’t be nervous but still being because she remembers closed door and hushed words when her father was in meetings, how the house was made to appear that she didn’t exist, me that one time she peeked she was reprimanded about what shamefully it was for her not to sit still alone undisturbing to the adults, and then just seeing Zuko not only not getting angry but making Izumi feel welcomed and jfjsksks how far they have come
Izumi finished reading the fourth report, and added it to the first three. She eyed the “New” pile on her desk, and decided she could not tell if it had grown or shrunk since she started reading. Her teapot was empty, but her head was full of problems. Four reports in a row about the crop failure on the northern peninsula. Now, she would have to find grain surpluses to keep her people from starvation.
Okay so i have gathered the evidence and i will present it to the court
My theory is that Suyin metal bended the cables and attacked Lin with the cords.
Why i think this because we can see in the show that Lin has full control of the cables in present day.
first of all THESE - GIF SETS have some peak Lin controlling the cable gifs, i dont know how she does those flips if she’s not controlling them?! and that gavel hit, cant do it! not with the angle it hits.
then theres this scene
How would it loop around him like that? on its own? nope.
NOW i’ve heard this before “BUt ANG maybe they had an automatic spring thing on it to pull it back when she’s not using them?”
Then why are they still out here? shes not bending them! they should recoil with the spring right? RIGHT
So either there is but she has to trigger it with metal bending OR there isnt and they metal bend them back into place themselves.
then there’s the attack
This POST , in the 5th gif you can see her hand flex to control the cable, then her eyes go wide as she realizes she cant control it, ergo, Suyin had control of it and in her anger deformed Lin’s face (and in my hc blinded her right eye)
so this leads me to 2 possible conclusions.
One! Suyin attacked Lin and intended to harm her and that’s why she cannot bring herself to apologize to Lin because that would be Admitting she intended to hurt Lin, the damage was more than she expected BUT it was still intended. that would also explain why Lin was so betrayed when Toph did nothing. Toph knows you can control your cables, she KNOWS Suyin did something, this wasnt an accident, and still didnt defend or aid Lin. No, Lin was the one who got into trouble for her sister attacking her. (This is another thing i hc that came between her and tenzin, hes a family man so he was like “She’s your sister Lin, you cant be mad at her” “She Ruined MY FACE!”)
or two! Lin hated that she couldnt control the cable moving that fast so she practiced and practiced until she had complete and total control of the cables and is one of if not the only officer who has such a fine control over their equipment.
side note: i tried to add the gifs in with the credit to the posts but tumblr is a little bitch and would only let me add still photos.
Izumi was called away for a meeting. Leaving Lin and Kya to deal with the little Ursa. Lin obviously knowing little Ursa to be goddess of chaos, Lin recommended Kya to not motivate her. But kya brushed her off and continued to play with the tiny Tasmanian devil herself. Only to regret it instantly as they both watched as the toddler ensued hell in their bedroom.
you already wrote it and I’m exhausted LMAO HERE YOU GO ANON
Kya being her gay authentic self and is drunk as hell decided to play twister. Lin having gay panic to the max. Izumi being chill gay. Tenzin regretting joining game night and refuses to ever play the game after what he saw in the first five minutes of the game .
