I don’t really hardcore ship anything in LoK. Linzin gives me angsty feels, but everything else is fair game
Oh god, don’t even get me started
too late you asked for it
When Avatar was still airing, my sister watched it religiously, and I didn’t really. I saw a few episodes, but not enough to understand the plot. One of the random episodes I remember seeing is Crossroads of Destiny. That’s right. Zutara in the Crystal Catacombs. And let me tell you, watching that episode by itself had me convinced that those two were going to fuck. They were complete endgame. I saw that shit coming a mile away
It wasn’t until I decided to watch the series in its entirety about a year ago that I really shipped them. I mean, I went into it knowing that Kataang was canon, but right around season 2, I saw Zutara everywhere. And I couldn’t understand why it was happening—their chemistry was so intense that there was no way the creators didn’t know what they were doing (obviously they didn’t, but what else is new?). Besides Zuko and Iroh, I would argue that Zutara has the strongest relationship in the series. I mean, come on—that was some deep shit. They connected over their lost mothers. Zuko supported Katara in whatever decision she decided to make with Yon Rha (unlike Aang, who pissed me off to no end because he needed to get off his high horse and shut the fuck up about things he had no knowledge about). Zuko asked Katara to go with him to fight Azula (which I’m still confused about to this day, because Toph would have been just as useful). And then he fucking took a lightning bolt for her. He knew he wouldn’t be able to redirect it correctly, but he jumped in front of her anyway.
Someone tell me how the fuck a character takes a lightning bolt for another character and they don’t end up together. Bryke knew exactly what the fuck they were doing; that is so obviously romantic!!!
And was that hug necessary if they weren’t ending up together wtf
But anyway, I always felt like the connection Zuko and Katara had completely trumped anything shown for their respective significant others. Even if I didn’t like Zutara, I would never like Maiko—it seems like a terrible relationship, and they are just not good together. I love Mai, but with Zuko, she is just not a good girlfriend. She is not there for him emotionally. And on the other hand, Zuko is a horrible boyfriend, constantly ditching her and actually forgetting that he left her in jail. That does not scream love to me, and it always pissed me the fuck off to go from Zuko taking a lightning bolt for Katara to Zuko kissing Mai like five minutes later are you kidding me??!?!?
As for Kataang, I actually ship that, because it’s cute. But looking at it from a critical level, I always felt that the emotion in that relationship was all one-sided—Aang had what I honestly feel was a crush on Katara, and Katara treated him almost like her son. She constantly babied him. And then Aang constantly pushed his feelings on her even though she kept saying no. And it all really felt like the “hero gets the girl” trope, because Katara didn’t really seem interested, but suddenly, two seconds after Zuko takes a lightning bolt for her (how many different ways can I stress this, I wonder?) she’s suddenly sucking face with Aang? This is some serious booty. No bueno, Bryke.
I love Tenzin and Bumi and the airbabies and all of them, but the actual thought of Kataang procreating gives me the oogies. I think I’m also skeptical of the fact that Aang was fucking 12 years old and how the fuck would he know what love was and what it meant and how it felt at twelve? And how the hell does it make sense that he would end up still being with the girl he dated when he was twelve??? Not logical.
Idk, Kataang, while cute, seems too babyish to me. The very nature of Zutara’s relationship is mature. It is gritty, it is dark, it is passion. And after they finally understood each other, I don’t logically see those feelings going away so easily. Especially because
Zuko. Took. A. Lightning. Bolt. For. Katara.
And idk about you, but I’m not doing that for just anybody okay
Also, Zutara fanfics and fanart are fucking perfect the fandom is so talented
So, anon, to sum up my answer,
I tried watching that first source and I cannot fucking stand the way the people are acting. I’m literally sitting waiting for the cops to beat the shit out of those fucking punks. I can’t even watch anymore. People are stupid and disrespectful.
This is what cold hearted, cruel and evil looks like. Not even the slightest irony over “I’m literally sitting waiting for the cops to beat the shit out of those fucking punks.”
See kids, racism comes in many forms. You don’t have to use a racial slur to say things so deeply steeped in racism that your ignorant racist mouth foams with joy at the thought of people who are protesting the unjust murder by the police by saying she hopes the police “Beat the shit” out of them.
Well how dare people be angry that the cops shot a kid 7 times? Or that three of those bullets went into his back? Who cares if they murder young black boys in cold blood? What difference does it make that the cops decided to claim peaceful protests were riots to justify further violence? Clearly everyone should respect them for…something. Not sure what, but hey maybe this time they can shoot someone younger than 16 to get that respect! Did I mention how much I’m starting to hate posts about current events on Tumblr & the white people who feel compelled to say this trifling bullshit?
The most badass old lady ever!
… the landlady truly reminds me of my mom more than any other character in the history of cinema.
Look proof of progress
Yes good. This pleases me.
ahahaha actual “this is meant to be seen by others: sewing.
If I can do it with glue/duct tape I have no business trying.
shouldn’t shop while feverish
did so anyways.
Remember that one time that David Boreanaz was dropped from Bones? Yeah me neither.
Well that’s awful.
However, if you have any hint of plump flesh then your body is that of the devil out to lure and seduce the weak menfolk.
Now you see why I don’t wear booty shorts and stuff out in public? Because I know that is how people see me in comparison to smaller women.
I’m the slut.
They usually aren’t
