“Life happens whether you make it or not.”

Uncle Iroh

Lion Turtle

“Love is brightest in the dark.”

Oma & Shu

“You think you’re any different from me, or your friends, or this tree? If you listen hard enough, you can hear every living thing breathing together. You can feel everything growing. We’re all living together, even if most folks don’t act like it. We all have the same roots, and we are all branches of the same tree.”

Huu

“Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source. True humility is the only antidote to shame.”

Uncle Iroh

“The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation. Things you think are separate and different are actually one and the same. We are all one people, but we live as if divided.”

You knew this would come: Azula for your headcanon meme.

and @focusas

(I genuinely don’t know why I’m a font for this but tis cool tho)

A. Supported/Realistic headcanon: Although she would be really skilled at it, Azula dislikes and does not enjoy playing Pai SHo because she always associates it with Iroh, with whom she does not get along. 

B. Humorous headcanon: Azula and Mai share inside jokes based arounf\d their similar fondness of gallows humor. She also has a hidden weakness for puns, not that anyone would guess to look at her. 

C. Painful headcanon: Azula was never really sure what would make her mother happy. She trained in firebending, studied history and mastered her letters, but was never able to figure out what Ursa wanted from her–why she chose Zuko over her. For all that Azula thought she could read people, Ursa was one person that she could never understand. 

D. Not canon but I do what I want headcanon: Azula gets called in as adviser a few years later into Zuko’s reign because she is far better at managing diplomacy and finances. 

anonymous asked:

have you ever analyzed how the bending techniques of Aang & Korra (the avatar) changes when they enter the avatar state, which is said to give the present avatar the strength and knowledge of all their past lives? if you have or not, it would be an interesting analysis and gif-set to post on your account.

Yeah, I don’t think that would work, for a few reasons:

  1. Aang wasn’t in control of his Avatar State until Sozin’s Comet, so whenever he went into the Avatar State it wasn’t necessarily him being in control until the very last moment when he didn’t kill Ozai.
    1. That said, all that power usually manifested itself as aggressive force, which is why Aang was so afraid of it in Book 2. 
  2. Korra contrasts with Aang on this front for two reasons 
    1. She was always in control of her Avatar State, so that was always her bending (and also, you forgot that she wasn’t connected to her past lives after book 2, so yeah that’s all her).m
    2. Unlike Aang, she uses her Avatar State in short, brief bursts of power.
