What do you mean this isn’t exactly how TOS episode Arena went?
I will never not reblog this. The 2 guys in the back are just ❤❤❤
people who get hyped up for other people are the greatest people you can have in your life.
Love their reactions. They aren’t worried about being emasculated, they aren’t insecure, they are just genuinely impressed that she’s lifting like a beast!

Listen, if Toph had went off on her own for a while in Ba Sing Se there is no way she wouldn’t vibe with Zuko.
“Welcome to Pao’s Family tea shop, I’m Li, waddaya want?”
“Understandable. Sadly, that’s not on the menu. Would you settle for a cup of Jasmine tea?”
Jet, bursting into the tea shop: THOSE TWO ARE FIRE BENDERS! Toph, interrupting Zuko who is about go attack this mouth wheat boy: And where’s your proof? Jet, suspiciously: I saw the old man with a hot cup of tea right after he complained that it was cold? Toph, about to cause some chaos: Then clearly, you need your eyes checked. Toph, gesturing to Iroh: This man is a Water Bender.
THIS MAN IS A WATERBENDER
wait i wanna add to this - so toph can tell when people lie, right? so she can probably feel zuko’s heart racing when jet accuses them of being firebenders. also, she would’ve met iroh by this point
so im imagining she’s like “okay. 2 firebenders. in a shop in the earth kingdom. but the old man is nice and wants better things for his nephew so honestly this checks out. yeah im gonna meddle”
That is 100% the thought process
Jet tries to argue that he heated his tea again.
“I know a waterbender and she can turn water into ice, who says they can’t make liquids hotter too?”
Jet has no argument.
He doesn’t have an argument cuz he knows the Water Bender Toph knows and has FELT her turn water to ice
Terror fills his body as he realizes that if Toph, who knows Katara, is friends with Li, then KATARA must be friends with Li TOO.
Toph can feel his fear, and she is living for it
Jet: He’s a firebender!
The Patrons to the Tea Shop internally: You fucking stupid, sir? I think you might be stupid.
yo…. when jet breaks in the tea shop and accuses zuko and iroh of beinh firebenders….
do you think any of the patrons looked at zukos scarred face - obviously done by a firebender - and immediately think jet was an asshole? like
jet: hes a firebender!!!!
patrons, thinking about the backstory they concocted for zuko and iroh where their home was invaded by firebenders and they barely survived with their lifes so they could come and have a peaceful life selling tea in a city the war doesnt touch:
spock: but what you failed to understand wa-
bones: look out there, spock. out this window right here.
bones: you can see the entire cosmos pass us by. places no one has ever dared to see before. things that mankind could scarcely imagine. but not once, no matter how many hours you look, will you ever see someone who asked for you opinion
When ants die, a few days later they emit oleic acid, which tells the living ants to dispose of their corpse.
A myrmecologist named Ed Wilson discovered this and dropped the chemical on a living ant. It was immediately carried off, despite the fact that it was still moving, and clearly not dead.
“I’M GETTING BETTER”
Bring out your dead. Eh, close enough.
IM NOT YET DEAD SIR
You left out the part where the ant, believing HERSELF to be dead, stayed in self imposed exile in the ant graveyard until the acid wore off and she realized she was not supposed to be in the ant graveyard.
Ant 1: “we thought you were dead”
I enjoy the fact that aang refuses to kill is more rooted in “im 12 and a monk” and less to do with “if i kill im just as bad”
zuko: you have to kill him because he’s evil
aang: i’m not sure i can
zuko: i swear to god if you tell me it would make you just as bad as him-
aang: what? no. he’s evil and the world would be better without him. but i’m A Child who was raised pacifist and the idea of murder is kinda terrifying regardless of the morality involved
zuko: oh. yeah that’s fair.
Aang: I don’t think i should kill him what can I do?
Kyoshi: kill him pussy
Aang: I am 12 and I think its against my religion
This guy has a place in heaven
This is Himbo Shonen Protag Energy.
I read these threads regularly. A lot of guys say they deliberately “miss” hints, just in case they’re misinterpreting things. And there’s lots of threads of pseudo-hints that back them.
This is why people just need to be straightforward with what they want
Gonna add this from that thread
Himbo shonen protagonist syndrome strikes again
my personal fav
that last one is absolutely god tier stupid, i love him
Thesis: NBC!Hannibal Lecter is not a vampire, but he is absolutely a dracula.
Does “a dracula” just mean “a rich prick who kills people, but in a refined, highbrow way”? Because that certainly fits.
Essential qualities of a dracula:
- Classy and urbane, but in a way that’s always about ten degrees askew of how a real human being would behave
- Engages in a variety of ritualistic behaviour that has no clear purpose beyond being conspicuously weird
- Maintains a large and well-appointed household in spite of the incongruous total or near-total lack of any visible household staff
- Has a super complicated backstory which is literally never relevant to the actual plot
- Makes it incredibly obvious that they’re the baddie, but it takes forever for the principal characters to figure it out because they’re all idiots
- Has a predilection for shitty wordplay
- Eats people
Sokka: Aang y'know how you took away Ozai’s firebending?
Aang: I recall yes
Sokka: can I have it
Sokka: can I have his firebending. just for like ten minutes
Aang: what no
Sokka: why not I wanna prank zuko
Aang: okay five minutes
This fukn post had me reeling so ofc I had to draw it
hi take everything I own
Sir Edward Burne-Jones, School For Dragon Babies, 1884, pencil on paper
i can’t believe you posted this without posting the sequel!
Places: the School for Dragon Babies and the Seminary for More Advanced Dragon Babies
Sometime near the beginning of the five-year mission, after several close calls, Jim puts up a “We Were Saved By” scoreboard on the Bridge.
One column says “Spock’s logic” and the other says “Bones’ feelings.”
The tally keeps going. Sometimes one side is winning, sometimes the other. More and more often, both sides get a checkmark for the same adventure.
At the end of five years, it’s a dead tie.
By unanimous decision, they award the prize to Scotty.
Vic Fontaine: hey pallies I’m cursed with the knowledge that im a hologram and nothing I ever do will truly matter because my life and everything in it is fake
Ds9 crew: haha you’re so funny and sexy Vic sing a centuries old jazz song for us
Does anyone else remember playing music in Windows Media Player and just sitting there and watching this for like two hours
Look at the names of these stupid things, guys.
tag yourself im dance of the freaky circles
‘redemption arc’ this and ‘redemption arc’ that
wheres an arc where the hero gets morally corrupted by a villain and switches sides and becomes an even bigger threat as a result
where is my bastardization arc
Negative character development WOOOOOO
Consider - hero bastardizaton and villain redemption within the same work so that by the end they’ve entirely switched sides and roles
