“I’ll spank you later for that”
Da fuq what do you two guys do to each other off screen? Just get a room for whatever your planning please. xD
Also new possible ship for me? xD
LITERALLY MY RESPONSE.
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,
OMG YES I HEARTILY AGREE WITH YOUR SHIPPING CHOICES
She literally said “Where’s your pretty daughter, Nala?”
Kovu/Kiara is my otp until the sun burns out BUT C’MON. Kiara and Vitani just has so much possibility.
As an AU ship? Awww yeayurr
Dante Basco on Zutara
All the awards.
we only ever see her laughing diabolically, which is still precious, but let’s have some real teary-eyed stomach-achey laughter for once
i just. hhhhh. i really do have a lot of very intense feelings about these strange fictional children.
So I just need to get this off my chest:
For me David Kawena from Lilo and Stitch is the ultimate Disney prince because he is there for Nani AND Lilo and even Stitch despite everything that’s going on in their lives. They’re going through some tough stuff. Their parents die and all of the sudden Nani has to be a mom to her sister who is socially awkward and depressed and that’s hard enough as it is and then she gets her this ‘dog’ and everything gets harder and even though she can’t return David’s feelings he’s still there for them through everything. Even aliens. He’s amazing. I was watching Lilo and Stitch with my niece the other day and I cried watching David go through it all. He is the perfect guy. Like I just get emotional thinking about him.
Imagine if you had someone like David in your life - male or female. You would feel like a prince/princess even if you were living with next to nothing.
David is the ultimate Disney prince - even though he isn’t a Disney prince. He should be considered one.
Disney rant - over.
I’m done writing meta on why I ship it, so please don’t add meta to my artwork. I figure all the work’s already been done, now all we need are some visuals.

Bb I love you, but sometimes you should stop talking about Zutara.
Because you occasionally possess this shipping-church vibe to your metas and you have sitting here throwing up the preach hand and it’s just not a good look for someone sitting alone at their computer, ok?
Don’t even bring up the juxtaposition sermon. They ain’t ready.
why would you feel ashamed about wanting animated disney characters to bang? it’s okay, my friends. it’s okay. there’s nothing wrong with you. you’re not a giant pervo. when, textually, tarzan and jane are constantly gifting each other with lingering touches (yo, remember that time jane slid down his body when they were vine-swinging and he stared intensely down at her face as she looked up to him from where she was essentially plastered against his chest) and aladdin and jasmine are forever leaning in to kiss and naveen cannot frigging stop smooching tiana for one dang minute, then, friend: there is no place for shame here. there is no place for shame anywhere. let’s all write fanfic about mulan and shang’s awkward courtship culminating in them doing it in her bedroom at the fa family estate but not until they’ve made out after a battle in a haze of thank god you’re alive. let’s all draw fanart of prince eric gently cradling ariel’s feet and kissing the tips of each of her perfect toes. let’s all think about how belle and adam totally did it everywhere in the castle, like, yo, EVERYWHERE
let’s do this in remembrance of these guys doing it
