Iroh, your Zuzu is showing.
BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN AND HEARD
MANDATORY WATCH NOW
…Holy shiiiiit. That was epic on a whole ‘nother level.
I’M SCREAMING WHAT IS THIS FLAWLESSNESS.
The friendship between Fire Nation royal family and the Avatar, spanning three lifetimes so far.
Watching the season finale ofLegend of Korra.
Korrafinallyfigures out airbending, and knocks Amon through a window and into the water.
The Equalists are screaming for Korra’s blood when they see Amon’s mask floating. Eight minutes to go, and Amon’s visibly about to react in whatever last scene of badassery will go down.
So, naturally, the entire fucking thing freezes, and I have to reload theentire thingjust to get to see the last bit.
I’m going to church in three and a half hours, and I’m not even going to be able to snatch the brief nap I was hoping for, because there’s no way my brain will relaxunless I know how it ends.
Goddamnit, Bryke. A:TLA and A:LOK are why I can’t have nice things.
HOLY SHIT THIS IS PERFECT
OK, so Lin is now a martyr for benders. What will happen to her now? She’s not dead, and Lin Bei Fong is not the kind of person to quietly fade into the background.
I predict that Lin Bei Fong will regain her position as Chief of Police. I predict that Lin will be like Sokka, a truly kick ass character in spite of having no bending ability.
And if I am right, then there will be so much to say about how this series depicts privilege, disability, meritocracy, and a host of other issues.
Okay, so… I think everyone needs to try and face what might very well be true: Lin may not be a bender anymore. I know, I know… it’s terrible. She’s so awesome, I understand that it’s tragic… but, you can’t fool yourself! Everyone is trying to come up with theories that will give her her bending back, but, let’s face it… it might really be gone :(
Am I the only person in the fandom who thinks that Lin’s bending being permanently lost might not necessarily be the worst thing ever? I mean, I hope for her sake that she gets it back, but if she doesn’t, well…
Bending is an inherent ability, something you’re born able to do or not. An ability you train, certainly, but once you have you use it almost without thinking when it’s applicable. And then the ability gets lost, and you realise that you have to re-learn the world and how you respond to it.
Lin’s mother was the character Bryke used to prove beyond any doubt that a PWD who was born with their disability wasn’t any less of a badass. Now perhaps Bryke will use another Bei Fong to teach us that becoming disabled through being attacked or in an accident isn’t any less either.
This week’s Legend of Korra was awesome, both the present AND the past. But it brought up some things about one character in particular that I’ve spent a great deal thinking about, talking about, and writing about over the past…well, almost two years. In my time exploring the fandom, I’ve seen…
This is one of the best analyses I’ve seen of Toph’s character. Ever.
