I’m not sure if this has been said already but my friend and I were discussing Zuko’s character arc throughout the atla series and it’s actually remarkably similar to Aang’s character arc, at least when it concerns key events.

In the very beginning, both had to go through an event that resulted in isolation and separation from their own homes and way of life, unable to return ( for various reasons). 

Both were struggling to come to terms with who they really were and what the RIGHT thing to do was ( Zuko’s dilemma of staying in the fire nation & Aang’s dilemma of killing the fire lord).

It was a different journey for both of them and they both CLEARLY handled things very differently due to their differing personalities. But, they both faced similar key events that triggered their character arcs and resulted in them growing and maturing as individuals. 

So for them to come together towards the end to fight for a similar cause was actually so brilliant. At the fundamental level, they’re not very different from each other. I just really love their friendship ok.

Me: *watches how beautiful zutara is*

Me: *forgets zutara isn’t canon and hopes they end up together*

Me: *gets excited because zuko and Katara are clearly in love*

Me: *squeals with excitement*

Me: *watches zuko sacrifice himself for katara*

Me: THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

Me: *watches aang and Katara kiss and Zuko and mai kiss*

Me: THEY DESERVED BETTER

Me: *cries uncontrollably for the next three months*

Me: *repeats the cycle*

  • Lapis: I need to get off of this planet.
  • Garnet: And then what? You never think these things through! This is exactly what happened when you trapped Jasper in Malachite. You had her, and then you had no where to go!
  • Lapis: I would have figured something out.
  • Garnet: No! If we hadn’t found you when we did, you would have become a prisoner all over again!
  • Lapis: Stop it. I have to go.
  • Garnet: I’m begging you, Lapis. It’s time for you to look *inward* and begin asking yourself the big questions. Who are you? and what do *you* want?
