i must restore my honor

Avatar Headcanons #1

 Aang Era Headcanons

  • Zuko was very involved in the rebuilding of the Southern Water Tribe.
  • Zuko apologized to Gran Gran about what he did during the first two ATLA episodes…destroying the village, and dragging her out of the crowd etc…he was kind of embarrassed but pleasantly surprised when Gran Gran accepted his apology. 
  • After the war, Zuko taught the Fire Nation how not to rely on hate and anger for their firebending drive, and basically created a golden age for the Fire Nation founded on peace. 
    • This is also why lightningbending is so prevalent in LOK (will also post about that later).
  • Zuko learned to lightningbend.
  • As he aged, Zuko incorporated more waterbending forms into his bending style. Iroh was impressed. 
  • Zuko, and Aang had at least one flying bison v dragon race. 
  • When Izumi was around 10, she asked her father if she could visit Ozai in prison. Zuko refused–and Izumi visited Ozai anyway.
    •  Zuko was furious, but Mai and Iroh insisted that it wasn’t too bad of an idea for Izumi to visit her grandfather. 
      • Izumi’s line about “nonsense wars” was a direct result of Izumi’s interactions with Ozai. 
  • Both izumi, Iroh II, asked abou Zuko’s scar when they were young. When it was Iroh II’s turn…they were at a gathering and Izumi was incredibly embarrassed about the whole thing, but Zuko laughed it off and told his grandson–and anyone who cared to listen–the story of his scar. 

Pre-LOK Headcanons 

  • Assuming Iroh II was born shortly after Iroh I’s death, and assuming that Izumi is anywhere from 50-60, Iroh could have died when Izumi was between the age of 10 and 20. So profound was his effect on her that she named her son after him.
  • Katara and Tenzin showed Korra’s family the Southern Air Temple when Korra was a young girl. Taking a stroll with Tenzin, she overheares Korra say Aang’s name. Looking in her direction, she sees Senna kneel down to ask her how she knew Aang’s name. Katara smiles. 
  • Korra penguin sledding while Katara watches. 

Korra Era Headcanons

  • After Jinorra’s ceremony, Zuko approached Jinorra and mentioned how much she resembles Aang, and commented that her grandfather would be proud. 
  • By now, the Fire Nation throne room looks a lot like it did before Sozin began the war, but with two dragons (Ran, and Shaw) behind the throne instead of just one. 
  • Iroh II will name his son Zuko after his grandfather, finally enabling Iroh and Zuko’s relationship to go full circle with Zuko going from being Iroh’s surrogate son to his biological son.
  • On the next coming of Sozin’s Comet, there will be huge ceremony in the Fire Nation celebrating the 100th anniversary of the end of the 199 Years War.
    • There will be a Ozai v Aang reenactment…Meelo will naturally volunteer to be Ozai despite being unable to firebend.
  • Bumi and Iroh II are total bros the same way Sokka and Zuko were. 
    • Iroh sometimes gets sick of Bumi’s shit though.
  • Korra visited Kuvira in prison on multiple occasions.
  • I doubt anyone besides Kataang’s kids know that Zhao’s in the Fog of Lost Souls…but, it would be interesting if Zuko found out. The Ocean Spirit killed Zhao because he’s the one that killed the Moon–but imagine Zuko thinking about how different things could have been. 
    • Imagine, instead of seeing Zhao in the Fog…we saw Book 1 Zuko. Imagine all the pain, and anguish that would haunt him in the Fog. On top of that, imagine Book 1 Zuko in the Fog while knowing how the prime timeline plays out. 
      • “I must capture the Avatar to restore my honor…father, I am your loyal son…” 
        • Heartbreaking, really, when you know how things actually end. 
  • Korra visited Katara after the LOK finale and thanked her for everything. 

Red Lotus Headcanons 

  • During his travels, Aang met a young man with a strong interest in Air Nomad traditions. Impressed, Aang fed the man’s thirst for knowledge and shared with him various Air Nomad teachings, even encouraging him to join the White Lotus. Eventuallyu, Zhaeer learned about Guru Laghima, and had regular debates with Aang about world philosophies. 
    • Even though the two disagreed with each other, they both enjoyed their philosophical debates. After Aang’s death, Zaheer met Xai Bau…and you all know how the story goes from there. 
  • Sokka rescued Korra, but died when he failed to swing his boomerang at P’Li in time. 
    • Boomerang did not come back that day. 

Zuko-Iroh Reunion Headcanons 

  • Zuko takes his grandchildren to meet with Iroh (I keep thinking he’d go alone for the first time, but he can’t just go without Iroh. And Honora Jr. would probably come too since we know she exists).
  • The Iroh-Zuko reunion is more heartwarming than the Zuko-Iroh reunion in ATLA. 
  • Iroh, knowing Zuko, will constantly expect Zuko to ask him to return to the mortal world with him, but is surprised when Zuko doesn’t ask him anything of the sort. If he does implore why Zuko didn’t ask that, Zuko will tell Iroh that he realizes what the consequences and implications of Iroh’s choice were, making Iroh smile before giving his nephew one last hug. 
  • Zuko tells his grandkids Uncle’s favorite tea joke on their way to see him, and neither of them find it funny for whatever reason–Iroh II especially. 
  • Iroh makes Zuko ginseng tea, Zuko’s favorite.

Sex Related Headcanons 

  • I really dislike Zutara, and think it’s illogical, but I’m on board with the idea of old, widowed Zuko and Katara hooking up if only because I want Maikos kids and Kataangs kids to constantly walk in on them for no reason but to create awkward moments. Also, I’ve pretty much headcanoned older kinky Katara thanks to some comic strips (said comics are actually about Korra), and besides the pairing here would at least make sense and it’s kind of cute. Alas, it would probably never happen–but, meh. 

Tenzin: Walks in on Zuko, and Katara WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE!?

Katara: Uhh…Zuko was showing me his honor/dragon? 

Izumi: Hey where’d our parents go? All I see are two leath–OH FOR RAAVA’S SAKE!

  • I always joke about how reports of erectile dysfunction disorder decrease dramatically among the Water Tribe population during the full moon, but let’s head canon it!
  • Kyoshi gives excellent sex advice…or, rather, did until Korra’s connection with her past lives was disconnected.

rosepetalrevolution replied to your post “Sailor Moon Drops is now running two events at the same time and I…”

This game has somehow found a way to be both the most endearing and the most annoying part of my life

GOD, SAME.

“I love this game, it is full of my favorite characters being adorable” I say as I fail a level for the 12th time in a row.

Skateboard Races//An Ahkmenrah Imagine

Summary: You and Nick are having skateboard races down the hallways, but then Ahk comes around the corner and you crash into him and land on top of him

.

You looked around at everything that had come to life in front of you. You couldn’t believe it, but at the same time, it kind of made sense. It explained all the obsessive research that Larry had been doing, at least.

“So,” you turned to your little brother. “Have you skateboarded down the hall yet or what?”

He pulled his board out from under the desk and you grinned. “We can get Teddy to judge.”

The president agreed and he stood at the finish line down at the other side of the museum while Sacajawea stood at the starting line.

The two of you ran up the stairs and stood at the end of the corridor. “I’m gonna kick your ass. You know long boards are better for racing than trick boards.”

Nick rolled his eyes. “Whatever. We’ll see." 

You positioned your board under your feet and prepared yourself. 

"On your mark!” Sacajawea called. “Get set! Go!" 

You and Nick took off down the hall. As you had predicted, you were ahead by a lot. You looked back to stick your tongue out at him, but you weren’t looking where you were going and crashed into someone and Nick pulled ahead. "Goddamn it!” you yelled. What to do. Go after Nick, or make sure the stranger you had just smashed into was okay. 

“Are you okay?” you asked quickly, not taking your eyes off the kid’s head.

“I’m fine,” he said. You looked down and saw that you had collided with a very handsome man in Egyptian garb. 

“I’m really sorry. I’ll be back in a sec, okay? I just gotta go kick my brother’s ass.” You grinned at the worried look on his face and sped down the hall just in time to see Nick nearing the finish line. “No no no!” you yelled, going as fast as you could, but it wasn’t enough. Nick crossed the line and Teddy rode around the second floor yelling that he had won. 

“What was that you said about kicking my ass?” he said, smiling smugly.

“No fair!” you whined. “I totally would have beat you if I hadn’t crashed into that Egyptian dude.”

“You mean Ahk? I kind of told him to come around the corner right then. You would have beaten me again if I hadn’t.”

“You cheater!” you shrieked. 

“In his defense, he had no idea.”

You picked your brother up and dangled him over the balcony. “Admit that I’m better than you. I want you to yell it to the entire museum.”

“Fine just don’t drop me!” He cleared his throat. “(Y/N) IS BETTER THAN I AM AT SKATEBOARDING!”

“What’s going on?” The pharaoh dude, Ahk, asked coming around the corner, followed closely by Larry.

“(Y/N), put your brother down!” Larry cried.

“I won’t drop him.”

“She won’t drop me.”

“I don’t care! Your mom would kill me if Nick ended up in the hospital!”

You and Nick groaned. You had been having fun until Larry ruined everything. Nick knew you weren’t going to drop him. But you set him down anyway. 

“Now, who wants to tell me why (Y/N) was dangling Nicky over the railing?”

You looked at each other, but didn’t say anything. You were both going to be in trouble no matter what.

“Someone better tell me or else you aren’t coming back here ever.”

“I’m over eighteen, you’re not the boss of me,” you reminded him.

“I’m your father. I will always be the boss of you.”

You pouted, but still didn’t say anything. 

“I kind of used Ahk to cheat in a skateboard race,” Nick said sheepishly. 

“Nicholas, why?” Ahk said, putting a hand on his chest and being over dramatic on purpose.

He shrugged. “I don’t know. I thought it would be funny?”

“Now I must race you to restore my honor.”

“You don’t know how to skateboard,” Nick pointed out.

“I can teach him,” you said, raising a hand. 

“That would be very appreciated,” he said. The two of you went to the hall of miniatures which was strangely empty. 

“Okay, so are you regular or goofy foot?” you asked. He just stared at you. You rolled your eyes and shoved his back. He stumbled forward, putting his left foot out first. “Regular,” you confirmed.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about." 

"Don’t worry. Put your right foot at the front of the board and leave the left one on the ground. Now, push forward and put your left foot on the back of the board.”

He did and fell over. You tried to hide your laughter as you helped him up. “Go again.” This time, you put your hands on his waist in order to offer some stability. And…other reasons.

“You have to push yourself forward with your left foot every so often to keep your momentum,” you said, demonstrating.

He got back on the board and did as you said, keeping a hand on your arm so he wouldn’t fall over. 

“Okay, now let go and do it yourself.”

“I don’t want to fall! Falling hurts,” he said anxiously.

“Listen up, princess,” you said, your hands on your hips. “I know when you were in Egypt, you had servants who did everything for you and never let you fall, but I’m not doing that for you. Falling is how you learn, and when you fall, you pick yourself back up and do it again until you get it right, caspisce?”

“It still hurts.”

You groaned. “That’s the point,” you snapped, your patience running thin. “It hurts, so you do what you can to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Get on the board.”

When he did, you straightened his back a bit and looked at how he had his weight distributed. “Shift your weight so most of it is on your front foot. It’ll help you go faster.”

He did as you said and kept his back straight and did just fine.

“See? I think you’re ready to take on Nick.”

He lost the race, but did better than you had expected.

“Thank you for helping me,” he said, putting a hand on you shoulder.

“Nick cheated,” you shrugged. “I’d help anyone who wanted to get back at him for that.”

He smiled. “Help from a pretty lady is always welcome.” And then he turned and walked away.

“Wait, what was that?” you asked, more to yourself than anyone else. “Ahk, what did you just say?” you yelled, running after him.
