To add some more wood to the fire: Iroh is not responsible for how Azula turned out.
A lot of people seem to think that Iroh preferred Zuko the way he does in canon before Zuko’s banishment, but that just doesn’t seem true. Iroh of course loved Zuko, but he only came to see him as his own after Zuko was banished and the only reason he came along with him in the first place was because he felt responsible for Zuko’s banishment.
Iroh didn’t really try to help Zuko or Azula with their problems before because they aren’t his children, he had his own stuff going on so of course he wasn’t going to also be able to raise his brother’s children.
If perhaps Azula has decided to come with Zuko and Iroh during his banishment, then perhaps Iroh would’ve seen Azula as his own and tried to help guide her with better values.
thinking about how i immediately gravitated towards stanning Eda, Jamack, Grunkle Stan, Shadowsan and Qrow and realising my favourite character type is just. Crotchety Adult Who Would Take A Bullet For The Child(ren) In Their Life
and then thinking about how much I love Maria Calavera, Madame Razz and Iroh and realising my SECOND favourite character type is Astonishingly Capable Senior Citizen Who Dishes Out Wisdom While Always Being the Funniest Person In The Room
and then thinking about King, Gus, Hunter, Oscar Pine, Jaune, Sokka, Dipper, Sea Hawk and Swift Wind, and realising my third favourite character type is just. BOY. LAD. SON.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but the statements
“Azula is a fourteen year old who was raised by an abusive father who only wanted to use her and probably suffers from mental issues outside of her upbringing that were only made worse by being brought up without the right values”
and “Azula is a an imperialist who hurt and abused many people, including her own friends and brother, attempted murder on at least two occasions and deserves to face the rightful consequences of her actions” can and probably should coexistence with one another.
how old is toph when she resists the sinking of wan shi tong's library
i bet she could yoink it right out of the spirit world and up through the sands in spite of that bigass bird as an adult
Them: “Bryke is sexist and hates women!”
Literally everything that has come out Avatar-related since Ruins of the Empire has been female-dominated and well-received, features POC/LGBTQ+, and doesn’t objectify them or their identities. But ok.
had a dream the live action atla was just a constant love hexagon or something between zvkka, zvtara, and kata/ang. no plot was there it was like a romance reality show with bending
Mai's first day at dance class and she's trying to do an aramandi. She definitely doesn't want to be there.
I wanted to post this along with Ty Lee today but... that is more complex than I expected so it might take a while @ohmygodtheywereparabatai
Azula in Nataraja pose can be found here.
I follow both a sokka fan and a sokka anti and i just think it's the funniest thing, also i have no idea what to think about sokka now
It’s so interesting how there’s such little fanfare around Avatar returning after a hundred year long mysterious absence. Like how come no one was like “holy shit the avatar is here? he’s real? i must train him to save the world!” I mean the gang had to work to get Aang a teacher.

Decided to give CSP another chance. Also trying another method of blocking in colours and shading. I’m still not used to drawing on big canvases so it’s not gonna be anything high quality
Kidnapper, with Sokka: We have your boyfriend
Toph: I don’t have a boyfriend
Sokka, voice cracking: You don’t?
Okay, can we just clear something up, very briefly?
The Northern Water Tribe has its problems. Of that there is no doubt. Half of those problems stem from being a fortress against a genocidal empire bent on global domination. But one issue that both Water Tribes have in abundance is gender roles. And yet, for the most part, that’s all they’re left as—aside from Katara and Sokka shaking things up in the North, not much changes.
In the South, it’s fairly simplistic. Men are the warriors, women the caretakers. Waterbenders are not segregated by gender; both men and women learn the same art.
Nobody disputes this arrangement. Katara never wanted to be a warrior, even if she wanted Sokka to see her as equal instead of lesser. Waterbending is Waterbending, and you can use it as a man or a woman, but Katara’s (gender) role of caretaker was one she took to and kept to throughout her life. Sokka’s transformation came about in large part because he learned the half-destroyed traditional structure he’d been brought up in had its flaws, and that for survival outside he couldn’t afford to dismiss alternatives even if he stuck to his own culture’s core principles.
In the North, it’s more complicated. Not only does the warrior-caretaker thing remain (scaled up a bit), but Waterbending is segregated in the same way. Men learn “exterior” Waterbending to aid in combat. Women learn “interior” Waterbending to heal and keep hearty—in other words, to aid in caretaking. And just like at the South Pole, until the Southerners actually come along, nobody disputes this. Yue may not have liked the idea of marriage to Hahn, but she never called out her system as unjust—we’ve no idea what her duties would be, but aside from marrying a jerk (and you have to wonder why she accepted that necklace in the first place) she seems quite committed. Pakku never let any girls into the yard, but Yugoda never let any boys into the House of Healing. And both are essential skills. Just separated. It’s not nice, it makes no sense, it’s completely understandable why they’d split it this way. I wouldn’t want to live in that system, but I can’t judge them without thinking about why this would occur and how the matter might be resolved. (Pakku starts teaching girls, Yugoda starts teaching boys, they do joint classes...and the Northern Waterbenders, male and female, could be the envy of the world.)
So can people please stop saying they didn’t allow women to Waterbend point blank up there? Being restricted to one style is not the same as not being allowed at all. You might as well say the men weren’t allowed to Waterbend because they couldn’t learn healing.
Same water, different shape.
(By the way, I have no idea what the distinction was in the Foggy Swamp Tribe, although we don’t see very many women there point blank so it’d be difficult to tell anyway.)
