What was your favorite Zutara moment from the show?
Hm. You know, when I first read this I was like: ”Just one? How could you possibly expect me to pick just one?”
But, actually, it wasn’t all that hard at all.
“I’m sorry. That’s something we have in common.”
This moment of instantaneous, bone-marrow deep understanding.
The way Zuko’s face softens, and his voice as well, how he turns to face her.
How Katara immediately stops crying, how she raises her head and moves towards him, because she wants to hear what he has to say.
Just… They reach out to one another in a way that they don’t to anyone else. Ever.
They want to communicate, they want to understand one another, they want to not be antagonistic. Like, he starts off with words of comfort, I mean, what am I supposed to do with this? She’s yelling at him, and. He. Reacts. By. Offering her comfort?!!?!? By trying to ease her pain!??! By empathising and sympathising and I just!?!?!?
I die, okay? I die for, during, and about this scene.
(The scar touching, and the way they lean towards one another when Aang and Iroh burst through the cave wall are close seconds, but seconds none the less.)
