We have all once been bald ponytail Zuko, but we all have the capability to transition into hot long hair Zuko and I think that’s beautiful. Make your goal in life to become hot long hair Zuko and the world will be a better place.

Whenever I look back on the early episodes of Avatar: the Last Airbender, I realize that Iroh was probably acting a little ridiculous on purpose. He knows that Zuko still has fresh emotional wounds from his cruel, uncompromising father and sadistic sister, and the one source of softness and warmth in his life, his mother, is long gone. Iroh always tried to be a friend to Zuko, but now that his nephew has been scarred and banished, he tries to be goofy and funny and carefree so desperately hard because all he wants is for Zuko to smile and relax again.  If making a fool out of himself is what he has to do, he’d do it a hundred times over.

I freaking love Avatar the Last Airbender because there is a character for everyone. Have issues trying to live up to your parents expectations? Meet Prince Zuko. Feel like the world is expecting too much from you and you rely on your friendships to help? There’s a guy named Aang for that. Feel like you aren’t important or special enough but want to still contribute? Sokka is your man. Compassionate to a fault and tired of the world seeing femininity as bad? Go Katara! Beautiful and strong as heck and ready for a hot dude to make out with? Welcome to the life of Suki. Hate everyone because you know you’re the baddest person up in this club? You’re Toph and I’m scared of you.

And don’t even get me started on the sequel series.
