aaron last

okay but imagine someone sees neil and andrew being a couple in public and is just. shocked. bc neil josten and andrew minyard hate each other?? everyone knows that?? the josten/minyard rivalry is stuff of exy legend?? so anyway pictures get posted online and everyone is so. confused. until someone goes “wait andrew has a twin” 

next thing you know, neil josten’s sordid affair with aaron minyard, his worst enemy’s brother, who’s married, is a headline across every tabloid, website, and social media account that even sort of cares about exy. which, as it turns out, is a lot of them.

aaron is horrified, nicky and katelyn are having a fucking field day, and andrew and neil are little shits who are entirely unhelpful in clearing the whole thing up.

Do you ever just think about how the guy who made Katara the feminist character she was and steered her character away from the one dimensional trophy Bryke originally wanted,

the guy who rewrote Toph to become a strong revolutionary girl instead of another stereotypical jock to reinforce the “Nice Guy™” message by competing with Aang for Katara,

the guy who developed Uncle Iroh into the supportive and wise guide for Zuko instead of another villain vying for the throne,

the guy who gave us the amazing untouchable redemption arc of Zuko instead of another forgettable villain,

the guy who suggested an evil Azul become the clever tactician Azula corrupted by mad expectations,

the guy who wanted a fourth season of ATLA with more plots explored and loose ends fixed and characters given satisfying endings instead of a rushed third season for a crappy movie,

the guy who wrote more than Bryke

Shipped Zutara??

the scene where neil finds out andrew chose him over aaron is like…So Good…it hits him that andrew really, truly does care for him….and that what is happening between them is actually a ‘this’ because at that point andrew would not be able to come back from losing neil, he is the one thing that got between his resolve to never want anything after cass because it nearly killed him, and andrew knew better but, “perhaps it’s the self-destructive streak in me?” 

I’m trying to lighten up my blog a bit so here’s the old playground!au:

  • first, picture everyone as tiny children
    • Riko is that one kid who takes being “king of the castle” too seriously and he’s always hogging the slides and being a general butt
    • Kevin and Jean go to day care with him, so they’re kinda just going along with it
    • all of the Foxes are pretty fed up with Riko but what can they do?? they get caught trying to beat his swarmy ass into the the sand and they’re grounded
    • of course Riko ends up throwing a tantrum anyways and pushes Kevin and Jean off the play structure
    • the good news is that kids bounce
    • the bad news is that Jean ended up bumping his head and Kevin twisted his wrist and now everyone has to go home and get yelled at for playing too rough
    • the next day Kevin joins the Foxes
    • Jean, perhaps for the best, wanders away and gets invited into the sand pit with the Trojans, who are 500% more civilized and are currently in the process of burying Alvarez
    • meanwhile, the Foxes are determined to take down Riko
    • Dan draws all of them into a huddle and gives probably the most dramatic speech to ever grace the playground:
    • “win because you don’t know how to lose. this king’s ruled long enough - it’s time to tear his castle down.”
    • except, y’know, it’s this tiny kindergartner saying it, surrounded by other tiny kindergartners, and basically they just all climb onto the playground structure and ignore Riko’s yelling
    • the final standoff is between Kevin and Riko as Kevin dramatically shoves Riko down the slide and refuses to let him back up
    • and honestly, the Foxes aren’t impressed with Kevin’s pushiness either (Andrew least of all), but whatever, they’re going home in an hour, it doesn’t really matter
