ATLA AU PROBENDING HC LETS GO
Okay here’s the rundown of the karsuno team hear me out:
Hinata is the avatar (HEAR ME OUT) but he DOES not know like his mom suspected something but honestly everyone thought the cycle ended with the last avatar and its unheard of an avatar with a sibling so she quickly debunks that possibility. Instead they only know he’s a fire bender and honestly his mom- a non bender- in a house with 2 constantly bickering firebenders is a FEAT okay.
And say before a HUGE nationals game it’s discovered that he IS the avatar and they almost disqualify the team but it’s proven that he did not cheat and they agree that as long as he sticks to ONE element he can participate so it’s LIT
Tsukki is also a firebender and it’s really not all that surprising because he just has this AURA around him that radiates a passive aggressive energy. Everyone kinda expected him to be an airbender because both his brother and father are air nomads (CROSS BENDER FAMILIES ARE KINDA “TABOO”) but he ended up taking after his mother.
TOBIO and SUGA are water benders and it was actually really surprising for Kags because everyone expects water benders to be really chill and calm and relaxed but KAGS IS NONE OF THAT LOL. Honestly when he joined a team in middle school eVERYONE expected him to be a firebender but NOPE. Kags is more offensive while suga is more into healing and DEFENSIVE so they put him in when things are getting rough because healing IS allowed
Noya is an earth bender and tanaka is a water bendER WHICH IS SURPRISING BECAUSE YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD BE A FIREBENDER OR AND EARTHBENDER WITH THAT ATTITUDE BUT NOPE. Noya’s earthbending skills are A1 like he’s one of the top earthbenders in the prefecture and tanaka is in the top 10 of his element. These two get into SO MUCH TROUBLE (they fling mud at random people and this escape like the punks they are someone get them off the streets smh)
Daichi is an earth bender as well and that kinda sucks when he gets mad because he’ll chuck rocks at people (Noya) and it really hurts man. But there’s a really steady quality about him like he’s just so firm (especially his arms) and strong (especially his arms) and really powerful (especially his arms don’t @ me) (he also gets so mad that he can’t bend lava but NOYA can but he’s too dad to ask for help because he doesn’t want to stroke his ego and it hurts man but BOY CAN HE BEND METAL) (HA CAN YOU IMAGINE “dad I MEAN DAICHI I CANT OPEN THE STORAGE CLOSET DOORS SOMETHING IS BLOCKING THEM” “ugh hinata give me a sec” *flings metal doors open like its NOTHING* *everyone is watching. Sweating*
Asahi and Yams are air benders which AGAIN is weird. EvERYONE THOUGHT ASAHI WAS AN EARTHBENDER BECAUSE HES BIG… LIKE A ROCK but no no he’s just trying to find balance or whatever (his mom is an air nomad while his dad is a non bender so he grew up around that kind of rhetoric) (he does live it out really well) (poor baby is always nervous) (help him)
Tadashi being an airbender isn’t really a surprise but ALOT of people assumed he was a non bender because he comes off as plain and his bending skills are nOT extraordinary and he used to get picked on in school because “aw look at the little air nomad cry cause he can’t bend” “IM NOT AN AIR NOMAD A-A-AND I CAN BEND! *tears up* *firEBENDER TSUKKI COMES OUT AND OH SNAP YOU KNOW THIS DUDE OH SNAP GUYS HES A FIREBENDER LETS BOUNCE. Honestly the most surprising thing about him being an air bender is that his best friend is a firebender I mean not even 100 years prior the fire nation had complete control over the air nation (what little were left) but despite that they are still tight and it’s really just AHHH my heart.
OIKAWA IS A WATER BENDER AND IWA IS AN EARTHBENDER AND THEy ARE ALWAYS SPARING
takeda is a non bender and Ukai is a firebender and it always AMAZES takeda to see him bend because it looks to EFFORTLESS (honestly he gets a KICK out of matches because it’s all so INTERESTING TO HIM)
Yachi is an airbender (her father was an air nomad and her mother is an earthbender)
Kiyoto is a water bender and literally one of the most powerful water benders you will ever meet but she is much more interested in healing
Kenma is an airbender and his bending is REALLY choppy and BLUNT but his precision is SPOT ON
Kuroo is a fire bender and pair him and bokuto (an EARTHBENDER) together and you are ASKING FOR trouble
AKAASHI IS A water bender and (he’s been trying blood bending recently on animals in the park but HE’D NEVER TRY IT ON A HUMAN SO RELAX IT JUST FEELS DIFFERENT THAN BENDING WATER) (he sometimes does it when bokuto is riled up and about to kirk to get his blood pressure down so he doesn’t get benched)
That’s all I can think of right now but feel free to add more because this is actually really interesting okay I’m out
