"getting real tired of your shit, aang"
Escape from the Spirit World: Avatar Yangchen (x)
#so many people still do not get this#the avatar is SUPPOSED to have attachments; the avatar MUST love others#and people talk about how aang ~never makes sacrifices~ but he loses SO MUCH#he sacrifices SO MUCH#he can never completely follow the spiritual teachings and guidance of his people. he cannot attain enlightenment#and he gains so much but he still loses that aspect of his culture and he’s THE LAST PERSON IN HIS CULTURE FOR SO LONG#and the show does talk about this. aang gives up power and he gives up total spiritual harmony#he chooses to love katara. he chooses to go to his friends and protect them.#zuko and aang’s storylines are deliberately designed as foils#zuko’s emotional quest is to find himself. aang’s emotional quest is to accept himself#zuko gives up physical trappings and physical power to gain spiritual strength and peace#while aang gives up spiritual power and enlightenment to gain the strength of attachments to other people#a sacrifice is still a sacrifice even if you gain other things#SORRY THAT IS A WEIRD TANGENT ANYWAY OK

Happy International Women’s Day!
I think it’s super cute that you have opinions, but since you decided to come into my inbox with them, I feel the need to inform you that they’re stupid.
Let’s sit down and judge Avatar: The Last Airbender for a second— not the entire series, mind you, but just Books 1 and 2. Imagine if the series had ended at the Book 2 finale— with Zuko being the most hated character since Umbridge, Sokka still being the comic relief, Toph still running away from her issues, Azula still completely 1-dimensional, and Aang still afraid of facing his duties/possibly dead. If it had ended there, it would’ve been a pretty disappointing show, right?
"But it’s unfair to judge something when it hasn’t been completed! You have to see ATLA in its entirety to fully appreciate it!!!" you dramatically scream to the heavens.
Get your heads out of your asses and stop writing Korra off as “disappointing” when it’s only halfway done.
And. stop. comparing. a. finished. product. with. one. that’s. still. in. development.
Here’s a sexy piece of bad-assery for your dash! I wasn’t really planning to finish the sketch, but I figured I would do it for all my new followers (since I’m sure you’re expecting some actual artwork out of me….) But seriously, thanks so much, guys!! I really appreciate the follows!! <3
I’m thinking of using this as a print for my group’s booth (Kamira) at Sakura Con, this coming year. Please go follow the Kamira blog for updates on my teammates’ artwork as well as other Con updates and such! :)
Now here’s a good defense of the beautiful and amazing Asami Sato.
"Gets in the way of Makorra" - How can Makorra shippers say this with all the boasting they do about their ship being endgame and “destiny”? Everyone knows Makorra is inevitable. She poses no threat to your ship.
