i like kataang

Soulmate AU where:

When your soulmate is eating something you can taste it on your lips, just slightly. And maybe feel it on your lips too, like the powder of a cinnamon donut, except you can’t lick it away, so you’re just stuck with it like ‘damn you asshole, lick your goddamn lips! This is annoying!’

If they’re having cravings you do too. Sometimes you’ll get cravings for what you’ve just eaten.

If you taste something like strawberry lip gloss you know their either getting ready for a night out or kissing someone. Or maybe they just like the taste.

You constantly lick your lips when they’re eating something you like because ‘oh gods this taste so good, what is it?’ or 'I haven’t had that in ages!’

You get jealous of the fact that they have such nice food ALL THE DAMN TIME.

When they’re eating something you don’t like you try to not lick your lips for so long. It gets annoying and is hard to do for a while so you just put on lip gloss. Then you think 'awe, man. What if they don’t like… And that’s why they put on lip gloss the other week?’

One day you try to send them a recipe. So you just, like, munch on a piece of toast, then lick some honey, then eat some banana so they’ll try your favourite meal and you’ll have that taste on your lips without actually eating it.

One day you think 'what kind of idiot eats peanut butter with jam - holy shit it’s an American! Or someone in America… Maybe they just like it? Oh god will I have to take 20-something hour flight to find them? Uuuhhhggghhh!’

You’re in the middle of a test but just can’t stop licking your lips because 'oh god glazed donuts…’

You can’t place a taste but you know you’ve tasted it before.

After going to Harry Potter world you realise 'it’s butterbeer!’ and then you try a butterbeer cappuccino or whatever and are just - 'goddamn it you jerk you ruined all my experiences!’

You start craving a signature dish from your town that is only served there. You go to the restaurant and see three people eating the meal, so you just walk up to the counter, order something that is nothing like the dish or something that you know that person hates because every time after you eat it you taste mouthwash.

You calmly sit down and just watch the people as you eat your meal. The person you least expected it to be - oh god it can’t be - looks up and is just like 'fuck’ and has that expression on their face.

They look around and see you. Their eyes widen at what you’re eating. You’re the only one eating it. You smirk and wave at them because 'haha sucker you laughed when I was teased about my soulmate and it’s you!’

Or one day you turn to your best friend like 'hey, can you see if anyone is eating -’ your eyes widened as you see they’re eating the EXACT MEAL you can taste.

Or a different ending where you follow a celebrity on Instagram and just see a picture of a steak with the caption being 'why the hell do I taste banana and honey… I’m eating a steak!’

And you just drop your toast. Your family stares at you as you squeal. Then you realise 'shit. That could be anyone.’ But you do taste steak… 'But anyone can be eating steak!’ You rush to the kitchen and pull out dark chocolate and go to the bathroom and start brushing your teeth.

Soon you see another picture of a steak and a caption of 'okay, now I’m tasting ANOTHER thing that clashes with my meal. Soulmate, please let me eat in peace… AND WHO HAS DARK CHOCOLATE AND TOOTHPASTE?!?! Will my future babies eat like this too? God save me…’

Something like that.

Growing up within an Avatar family must have been so weird, like, 

as a kid you could knock on the door and walk in to your dad literally glowing and being all creepy like that–

Kid: Dad…

Aang: Kiddo, I need alone time, I’m in the middle of meditating on the subject of human-spirit relations and if I don’t solve it, like, right now we could all go to magical, terrible war, disrupt the balance, and fall into chaos. 

Kid: …

Kid: Okay… but Mom wants to know what you want for dinner, so…

Aang: Oh, noodles sound nice. 

3 things to remember:

Shipping one thing does not make it impossible to like another ship involving the same character. 

Disliking the portrayal of a canon ship and/or character is not the same as hating a ship and/or character.

Sharing your opinion and point of view is not the same as forcing someone else to accept it as their own. Your opinion does is not matter more than theirs. 

About Zutara.
  • I AM of Zutara hardcore fan and started ATLA for them (and Toph) but I love Aang! He’s one of my favorite character of the show! He’s pacifist, kind and innocent. He’s a kid forced to fight in a war he doesn’t want to be a part of. I actually feel extremely sad for him. The most stupid thing in this ? People are bashing Aang and say he doesn’t understand Katara’s pain about her mother’s murder… Uh… Yes he does. His entire people has been killed. We are talking about a genocide. How does he not understand, again? He is a pacifist, of course revenge is foreign to him and he doesn’t understand it, but he understands her sadness. He, by the way, handles it pretty well. He has no family left. Katara has Sokka. You need to stop this hate.
  • As for Mai… Meh. I won’t lie. I don’t like her. But not because Zutara is not canon. I don’t like her because she and Zuko are in an abusive relationship, and she is the one who abuses Zuko. Because, I’m sorry, but she is. She treats him like a slave at the beach party (go get me some food), she throws things at him (and not in a playful way. I wouldn’t condamn her if they were having a pillow fight because everyone loves pillow fights), she actually acts like a bitch when he tries to talk to her about his scar and the fact that is fucking traumatized by what happened to him. Let’s do a little genderbent. Had Zuko been a girl and Mai a man, everyone would be trashing this ship. Serioulsy, their relationship is almost saying that men can’t be abused. Which is bullshit. One of my friends have been abused by his girlfriend, and I can tell you it was hard for him to trust another girl after that. So no. It’s not a healthy relationship.
  • But, before this poor excuse of a relationship happened, I liked Mai. She was a cool bad guy, and actually made me laugh a few times. My opinion did change when I realized she abused her boyfriend, but, had she never done that, she would have stayed one of my favorite antagonist.
  • What I’m trying to say is that it’s not because your ship isn’t canon that you can just go and hate characters for this reason. If you don’t like them, fine. But find yourself a real reason… Otherwise, It’s stupid, childish and immature. Jeez, it pisses me off! I know Zutara was fucking forshadowed and I WAS cheering for them during the entire show, but I still love Aang! (And I used to like Mai).

anonymous asked:

I binge-watched AtLA long after it finished airing, knowing perfectly well which pairings would be the endgame and I still couldn't believe my eyes when zutara didn't happen, cause it was so good and basically everything hinted at it, while kat*ang just felt so forced and out of nowhere, at least as far as Katara's side is concerned. Now that I know zutara WAS the original plan and most probably would have happened had Book 4 not been scrapped, it all kind of makes sense, but still.

Oh yeah, I heard about the original plan thing… I think my biggest sobstory with AtLA was that I watched it as it aired in my country with my smaller sister who had seen some episodes and she reassured me that zutara would be endgame (sneaky little fuck) but then it didn’t happen and my whole world crumbled… It was my first ship ever and what introduced me to fandoms, for the simple fact that the canon felt so wrong that I started desperately looking for alternatives and then Googling things brought me to this hell. We could’ve had it all, anon. And yet they shattered our hopes mercilessly. 

AU where it’s illegal for the Avatar to pick their significant other; officials from the next nation in the Avatar cycle meet to choose who the Avatar will marry in an ancient attempt of passing down the Avatar spirit like a lineage but Avatar Aang likes the pretty southern waterbender Katara more than the northen one they chose for him so they elope and start their new life on the run.

Question. How many zutara shippers identify as male? Please reblog so this can get around. Almost all zutara shippers I know identify as female. Also, for my nonbinary and genderfluid friends feel free to also reblog

For the third time that twenty-minute call, Katara promised her father she would be careful. And then again, a fourth time, to her brother, listening in on the other line. They sounded worried, despite their words stating their pride in her and her work, and so she tried to keep her voice even, steady. After the months she had been through, keeping a smooth voice in a high tension environment had become something of a talent of hers and so it was easy.

“I have to go,” she told them after hearing the ding of her alarm. Break over. “I love you guys.”

“We love you, too,” Hakoda told her. “Be careful.”

“I will.”

“Call tonight! I mean it! Don’t fall asleep again!”

“Goodbye, Sokka.”

She hung up. She felt both relieved to be off the phone and strangely scraped with loneliness.  The way she always felt now after calls home. It was getting easier, though, being so far. On the other side of the world. It was hard, lonely, frightening at first. Now, mostly, it was tiring, trying.

And satisfying. Among the stress, and pressure, and sleepless nights, there was satisfaction, when her patients woke up, when she was able to see a patient walk out the clinic, or a mother hold her child for the first time. The satisfaction kept her going. It had to. The pay was bad, and the nights long, and the hours even longer, but the satisfaction worthy.

So, swallowing down her last mouthful of coffee, it was back to work, down the clean, white clinic hallways.

Do you ever get really emotional over the fact that Aang was able to marry the love of his life and have three beautiful children? Cause sometimes I get these random bursts of pride and happiness and I just sit there like:

Happy Holidays, Gaang!

This is just a fast, little something for all the best Followers (and anyone else interested) in the world!

You are all the best and are always making me happy and I can’t tell you how truly thankful I am for all your love and support in all the silly things I do.

Have the best of holidays, everyone!
