I sometimes have to laugh when people say that Jonsa is useless because it probably won't be canon, and I'm the girl that shipped Harry/Hermione and Percy/Nick and Zuko/Katara when she was younger so canon has never made a differnce to me. (Honestly, Zutara burned out my disappointment. Unlike the first two where I knew they probably wouldn't be canon, I honestly did think it would be. I was 10 and shocked at that Kataang kiss. . . .)
I AM STILL SO SALTY ABOUT ZUTARA AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!!!!!!!!!
I swear if they do that to Jonsa, I’m going to stab someone!
But… you’re right. Canon does not make a ship and I’ll still ship the shit out of Jonsa whether they’re endgame or not. Doesn’t matter at the end of the day. I still adore both characters and them together as a couple.
Seriously though, the only reason Zutara wasn’t canon was because of behind-the-scenes politics. Most of the writers, animators and voice actors shipped Zutara and thought they’d be canon. It was Bryke that screwed everything over in the end, and honestly, it was Bryke that screwed up Aang’s character development, and eventually Katara too in the comics. I mean they basically reduced Katara into a trophy wife that sat in the back while Aang did his thing, while Aang freaking ignored his children and favoured the one until all of them had such huge psychological issues as adults. Because you know why? Aang never had to grow up. He married Katara, who mothered him from day one.
Ugh… I told you I was still salty.
Sorry… this totally derailed.
