does anyone ever consider the impact ozai’s death would have on zuko, and not aang? i’ve read countless metas on the ‘aang killing ozai’ debacle, but what about zuko? less than several months before sozin’s comet, he was desperate to be back in his father’s good graces; zuko truly thought that ozai could restore his honour. he wholeheartedly believed that ozai’s treatment of him was just, fair, and conjucive to creating an ‘honourable’ person.
we know that zuko’s opinion of his father takes a 180, but ozai will always be zuko’s father. why do we expect him to completely bury the inevitable bond he has with his own blood, while we sympathise with the Avatar, who refuses to carry out his duty by defeating this warmongering stranger?
zuko’s opinion on the whole ‘let’s-kill-my-dad’ debate is likely far more layered than we see, but he is selfless enough to understand that the killing of his father will restore peace and balance in the world. still, i rarely see people sympathising with zuko’s lot regarding his father’s hypoethetical death
i literally just reblogged a post asking people to stop infantilizing trans men like me and someone immediately reblogged it from me and tagged it like “well im still gonna call big buff boys precious! i headcannon character so and so is trans and hes my precious baby boy!” like wow way to miss the fucking point.
Today, I celebrate me, I celebrate you, I celebrate every lgbtq+ Muslims all around the world. I celebrate how strong we are even though we are thought that we are haram, even though we are made to believe that we are sinners, even though we are fooled by the traditional interpretations that we are doing something wrong. I have the biggest respect for all of us just because you are still out there, trying and fighting. I deeply inspired by all of us for just being themselves and just living by. Don’t let them make you sad, remember that your health is the most important thing and there is nothing wrong hiding your identity. Remember that there is no reason to be ashamed of yourself. Remember that you arent alone even if your family, relatives, friends or anybody dont accept you. We can do this, we can do it even if we are kicked from our homes. You are not alone cause I am just here including all of you in my duas every night. Mashallah for being such an irreplaceable part of this world. Today, I celebrate us!
