anonymous asked:

Since you just quoted Iroh's song, do you think the "four loves" part has a special meaning? Sorry for this random question ^^'

No need to apologize. It’s a very good question. I’m inclined to believe that there is a special meaning. I think some of the other songs have a special meaning, too. I should do a meta on them. But for now, I will focus on the song, “Four Seasons

“Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, Four seasons, Four loves. Four seasons, For love.”

Immediately prior to the scene where Iroh sings this song, a crescent moon is shown above. In astrology, the phases of the Moon have a symbolic meaning associated with certain emotional states. The lunar cycle is said to affect the planet’s energy, as well as people’s subconscious thoughts. I think the lyrics of the song were meant to foreshadow the four future romances of the series. During the course of Avatar’s story, there is one relationship with Moon symbolism that occurs during each Book, each of which takes place during one season.

Winter (Book One: Water)

The first romance is Sokka and Princess Yue. They share their kiss under a Waning Crescent Moon. This phase is said to symbolize the end of an old cycle, and the beginning of a new one. It is a time for the release of negative energy and renewal. It is the ideal time to focus on new hopes and wishes that you desire, such as a relationship. Symbolically, this moon phase suggests that the inner world is more important than the outer world.

Their final kiss takes place after Zhao destroys the moon, completely erasing it from the sky. Yue becomes the Moon Spirit and her sacrifice returns the Full Moon to the sky. The Full Moon appears when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth (like Zuko and Katara clashing as enemies). Emotions tend to be high during a Full Moon, as energies are at their peak. The Full Moon also represents a time when hidden emotions are put out in the open.

Spring (Book Two: Earth)

Sokka and Suki nearly kiss under a Last Quarter Moon. This phase symbolizes spiritual healing, and the time to let go of past hurts and feelings regarding people and things. Although Sokka is unable to at first, he reciprocates her feelings the next day, finally having moved on from his past pain with Yue.

Summer (Book Three: Fire)

The New Moon has no illumination. It appears dark and not visible (except during a solar eclipse). As it is dark, it denotes beginnings. Energy from the New Moon up to the Full Moon gradually builds in strength and intensity, so the New Moon is the ideal time to set clear intentions and goals, start new projects and give rise to new ideas and ventures.

When there is a Full Moon, the planet’s energetic frequencies are much more active, and so there is heightened activity and intensity. Intense thoughts, feelings and behavioral patterns emerge. Its profound connection to water represents our emotions and the innate depths of our subconscious mind. Emotions tend to peak one way or the other. The downside of full moon energy includes tension, polarity and intense thoughts and emotional behavior.

Fall (Book Four: Air)

Each Book so far has had one major moon-related relationship as the focus. Winter had Sokka’s ill-fated relationship with Yue. Spring had the blossoming of Sokka and Suki’s love. Summer was originally going to be the period for Aang to let go of his attachment to Katara, unlocking his final chakra. So if I had to guess, much like the first episode where they spend time together under less romantic circumstances…

…Zuko and Katara were probably going to have a special romantic scene, perhaps a first kiss, underneath the moonlight during the Fall in Book 4: Air. Damn, that’s actually kind of sad…

Bryan/Mike: For the Western Air Temple, the designers referenced the roof styles of Bhutanese monasteries. In order to make this Air Temple location unique from the others, but equally as difficult to acess, Bryan had the idea that the temples hung upside down from the cliffs.

Avatar: The Last Airbender Storyboards from the premiere episode of Book Three: FIRE, “The Awakening(aired Sep. 21, 2007) by Giancarlo Volpe ! The MAIKO kiss ! Oh, remember the blushings from “Zuko Alone”, in the childhood flashback. The crush that became love and Fire Nation’s Royal Family. :’)

“Just for the heck of it, I’ll show you the scene that ruined all Zutarians across the world.”
They’re just hanging out on the ship right? No harm done. I bet Zuko is daydreaming about Katara while he stares at the night sky…” Χαχαχα
