Why I like her She’s tough, stoic, cool, and also has a really wonderful, soft center to her. I also really love her design, it’s really appealing and manages to show that she’s both tough and feminine. She’s the whole package. :D
Favorite scene Pretty much all of her scenes in Kung Fu Panda 2 are great, especially those with her and Po together.
Favorite season/movie Kung Fu Panda 2
Favorite line ”… that must have been quite a shock.” Completely deadpan reaction to Po telling her that his Dad (Ping) wasn’t his actual dad.
Favorite outfit Despite my numerous issues with Kung Fu Panda 3, I do have to admit, I love Tigress’ new outfit in this movie.
OTP Do I even have to say it?
Head Canon Po and Tigress are secretly dating, and they started between KFP2 and KFP3. They haven’t told anyone because they don’t want the Valley of Peace to make a big deal out of it.
A wish Po and Tigress to be a canon couple. Also would be happy with getting Tigress back as a main character instead of… whatever the hell happened in the third movie.
An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen Tigress (and the rest of the Furious Five) being demoted to just being punching bags in KFP3. It makes me wonder why they’re considered the most badass heroes of the land when they always LOSE.
5 words to best describe her - Ferocious - Gracious - Tough - Gallant - Caring
-Speaks VERY little Chinese, she has Chinese roots
-Barok Spanish because thanks Dora for the childhood
-Avid kpop lover that prob greets her friends with anneyeongseo and says saranghae a lot
-rock music is life
-she may look childish but, she’s actually very mature and maternal
-Looks innocent but, gets into a lot of fights because when she sees something wrong she’s not afraid to back down (may it be verbal or physical fights) and she does it while crying because eff you too, I’ll kick your ass while crying my eyes out in anger
-math genius because why the heck not
-smoll beb that likes being protected, loved, and cherished
-catch her at your local ukay-ukay shop every month getting the best deals
-so good at shopping that you can’t even tell that the clothes she bought were from either ukay-ukay or Baclaran (second hand/thrift shops and Baclaran is a place full of fake brand shops)
-The type to say “Let’s tusok tusok the fishball na!” because Taglish is lyfe
-Catch her being bisexual af but, super shy when it comes to her crushes (it’s too easy to know when she likes you because she turns into a blushing nearly mumbling cutie idiot)
-I can see her being really good friends with Hwoarang, Xiaoyu, Kuma, Panda, and Leo.
-The type to eat lots of food but, never gets fat. Actually, her coaches even scold her to eat more because she needs more weight to add to power
-Josie and Hwoarang trash talking each other because Josie’s actually got a mouth dirtier than, a sailor when people get to know her better or when she’s close friends with someone
-She’s totes crushing over Lili, Leo, and Asuka.
-Avid supporter and lover of Kazuya
(not lover as in together, she just loves him)
because when the typhoon that hit the philippines came, Kazuya was in charge of the Zaibatsu at that time so nobody can change her mind in seeing Kazuya as a saint of the sort or something
-Joined the Tekken force because she loves that they came to help her country in time of need but, got pissed off when she joined because Jin took over at that time and she doesn’t like him because of the wars he caused (Also, prob because he took the Zaibatsu from Kazuya)
Katara rushed past him, and he locked the door behind her. Zuko leaned against the wall and raised his eyebrow at her. Katara opened her mouth at the same time he did,
“What are you doing here?”
“I, a lady, am in the ladies’ lounge, Fire Lord,” she said, a smile tugging the corner of her mouth, “what are you doing here?”
“I, the Fire Lord, am… exploring.”
He smiled, “Okay, fine. Hiding.”
She smiled wider, “There we go. Why don’t you tell me all about the poor Fire Lord and his huge problems.”
She walked over to the mirrors and pulled water from one of the basins next to her. For the first time, Zuko noticed the splotches of dark liquid on the side of her dress, and on her sleeves.
“What happened?” he asked as he made his way over to the loveseat in the center of the room. He made a mental note to speak to the chief of staff. There was no way women needed this many pillows and chairs in a bathroom.
Katara let out a frustrated sigh, “You know, nothing new. Conspiracy nuts just love it when I visit.”
“The usual,” she shrugged, but her smile had gone, “I’m a witch, long live Ozai, down with women, whatever. Take your pick. They threw fruit this time.”
Zuko leaned forward, his arms on his knees, “Well I’ll be sure to show up at their hearing. That ought to scare them off for a while.”
Katara waved him off, grabbing a towel and soaking it in water, “Oh, they weren’t arrested. I told your men to let them go.”
Zuko pinched the bridge of his nose and closed his eyes, “Of course you did.” He heard her wring out the water in the towel, and nearly yelled when the cold, wet fabric hit his face.
“Warm that up for me, will you?” she was grinning. He just knew she was, “The stain won’t come out with cold water.”
Zuko exhaled steam and chucked the towel back at her. She caught it in one hand, and began dabbing at her dress, “Your turn. What was so bad that the Fire Lord had to go hide in big, fluffy pillows?”
“And then he starts talking about how flexible Su Yin has been after her lessons- Katara, he’s her FATHER-”
“Ha! Was that before or after he stopped kissing your royal butt?”
“It’s not funny. It’s the opposite of funny.”
“Poor little Fire Lord. Too many girls chasing you. Life is HARD after the war, isn’t it?”
“Oh, shut up. Come here, you missed a spot on the belt.”
She walked over with her eyes mid-roll, and he stood to take the towel from her hands. If asked, he would’ve said that no, he did not remember that she smelled a little bit like panda lilies, or that he could tell she tried to sleek down her hair with cherry oil.
“You can’t be serious.”
She braced herself against his shoulder, “Oh, I am. He told your Uncle I was chewing in code to threaten him.”
He nudged her hip with his elbow, “And to think I was JUST starting to warm up to his daughter.”
“You’re such a liar. Anyway. Today he comes up to me, in front of everyone, mind you, and asks how dare I wear this shade of lipstick.”
Zuko looked up at her, and caught sight of her smile. He turned his attention back to the belt. Or rather, the very stubborn stain he had gotten on his knees to eradicate, “Lipstick?” He asked.
“Mhm. He said that the fact that I’d worn pink and not red was a clear sign of my intentions to dissolve the Fire Nation’s government.”
He laughed lightly, and got up, “This is impossible. Lift your arms.” He found it just the slightest bit interesting that she did as he asked with no objections, and did not question him when he began undoing the belt at her waist. He gathered up the fabric in his arms and she grabbed his shoulders for balance. It was like he was hugging her without touching her, the way his arms circled her body and came back around to her middle. He could feel her hair on his jaw when he leaned in. She was in the middle of a story about her brightest student, a delicate bloodbender who came from a former Fire Nation colony, when Zuko finished removing the belt. He stood in front of her, listening and smiling, until she finally lifted her hands from his shoulders.
“I give up,” he says, once her story ends, “you’ll have to take this to our seamstress. Maybe she can salvage it.”
Katara folds up the cloth in her hands and sets it aside. “Thanks, Zuko.”
Maybe it was how close she stood. Maybe the fact that this was just like camping together as children. Maybe this was just who they were together, when no one else was around, but Zuko finally saw the punchline to all of Uncle’s jokes written plainly on Katara’s warm skin, scattered in faint freckles across her cheeks that had not been there when they were younger. He saw why Sokka had always “kept watch” around them back then. He saw it in the way his hand was reaching to wipe away some water from her cheek.
“Anytime,” he said, just to see that smile one more time.

So I have this theory about Tigress’ outfit that @tigress15awesome encouraged me to post so I’ll do it 😊.
Here we go:
In Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2 we see Tigress wearing the red Outfit with the golden patern on it. The patern looks like a closed flowersapling in some sort and my guess it is that of a Tiger Lily that represents Tigress and her relationship to the ones she cares the most (Po, The Five, Shifu).
In Kung Fu Panda Tigress is cold stubborn mean and CLOSED UP to others. What got my attention was that she was closed up, like her patern of the Tiger Lily, the sapling was still closed up. In Kung Fu Panda 2 we see her wearing the same outfit because she still needs to find a way to warm up to some of her friends although you can clearly see her already warming and OPENING UP to Po. So at the end of KFP 2 Tigress is more open than she has ever been, thanks to Po.
Now it gets crazy:
In Kung Fu Panda 3 Tigress is wearing the golden Outfit (most likely gold because it symobilises heroism) with the same patern on it. But you will notice that at the end of the patern a flower starts to open up and (I put a picture so you can compare) it looks like it’s a Tiger Lily! So Tigress opens up to her comrades and friends and also does her Tiger Lily patern on her outfits. In KFP 3 we see Tigress deeply caring for her friends and trying to save them whenever she can. So that shows us she has OPENED UP, like the Tiger Lily, although you can see that the Tiger Lily is not yet fully opened (which brings me to my theory)
My theory: The Tiger Lily on Tigress’ outfits represents herself and her relationship to Po, the Five and Shifu. So my guess it that Tigress will continue to develop herself and therefore she will open up even more, mostly to and because of Po. Therefore I predict her wearing an Outfit with a fully grown Tiger Lily in the last Kung Fu Panda movie, representing how her character has developed and how Po has changed her, which also leads to TiPo finally beeing Canon 😊 so, what do you think?
notes “i hit you with my car and was the only one to visit you in the hospital” au, from this post.
If there’s a patron god of irony, they must be laughing their ass off at this very moment.
The stranger–first name Zuko, according to the chart she’d snuck a peek at–goggles out from under his sloppy bangs.
“Say that again.”
Katara rocks back and forth in the guest chair, then forcibly stills herself when she remembers the splintered look of the snot-green plastic. She bunches her fists against her sternum, bearing down like she can hold in the urge to yell.
“I…am a medical student.”
The guy–Zuko–transfers his stare to his shiny new leg cast. “Okay. What’s the punch line?”
Zutara fic recs? Also your blog is quickly becoming one of my favourite blogs ok have a nice day ok :)
dsfghjdfghj IM SO SORRY I ONLY GOT TO THIS NOW i hope you see this!!
but anyway, wanted to give out a little disclaimer that I’m really picky with fics /and/ despite shipping Z & K since forever I haven’t ~properly~ read as much fics as everyone else has <///3 But in any case, here’s a [very] short list! I hope you don’t mind ack
“It is not the memorial she deserves, nor the one she would want. But it can’t be helped. He owns no property in the other nations, and he needed to keep her close. Closer than she was in life, anyway.” Zuko’s reflections on a life lived and a life that could have been. Told in four arcs: melancholy, slow dancing, unrequited, and cobalt blue/vigil. For Zutara Week 2014-2015.
Hands down the best Zutara fic I’ve ever read. Beautifully written and canon compliant and everything just FITS. You’ll squeal and swoon and laugh but there are also parts of it that’ll make you just wanna stare at the ceiling and cry <–a whole lot of that last bit too, so be sure to bring lots of kleenex and your favorite stuffed toy to cuddle with because IT WILL HURT A LOT. I usually don’t read fics like these bc i don’t like crying lol, but this was just so beautiful and it was 50000% worth the read.
Fate puts Katara in the Fire Nation to grow up in the company of a Dragon, a prince, and a lot of good tea. AU Zutara…of a sort.
A fucking Zutara classic. This was written and completed back in 2006, 2 years before ATLA even ended. If you regularly read Z/K fics, I’m almost sure you’ve read this one. It’s a good amount of everything: feels, squeals, and just. Everything. I can’t even begin to describe how much this fic has stuck with me. There’s also an unfinished sequel to this, but the fic overall has enough closure. Just. Just read this ok just read it.
Three years after Fire Lord Ozai’s defeat, Zuko is threatened by the Raiders, a rebel group seemingly tied to his family’s dark past. With the help of Katara, Zuko leaves his home in pursuit of answers and peace. But, does the truth really set you free? *COMICS DON’T EXIST*

I came across The Adamant Daughter’s blog very recently (she posts zutara one-shots and RP’s on her tumblr), and I fell in love with her writing almost instantly. So when I found out she had a multichapter up on FFn I nearly screamed in delight lmao. The Rising is pretty dark and angsty (it’s rated M for a reason), but also has enough fluff to balance it out. I’m not usually a fan of dark&brooding!Zuko, but I had to make a special exception for this. The canon ATLA comics are completely disregarded too (which is good bc the comics suck dont even bother), and The Adamant Daughter writes a very interesting and creative take in this intriguing AU-of-sorts. Her characterization/writing is consistent and follows through in every chapter, and you really get an in-depth understanding of the characters throughout the story, and why they do the things they do. Plus like I said, I normally don’t read M-rated stories like these. Barely touch the stuff. This is the one exception. Go read it.
Katara has developed a new hobby. At the Western Air Temple she takes to stalking Zuko. Much silliness and shenanigans follow. In chapter 20: Katara and Zuko return home to the others. Katara hates the F word and she comes to a decision regarding Zuko.
Just. Dork Zuko. Dork Zuko everywhere. Just. TFGSDHJJNFSKDLSD. I came across this fic because I was looking for something to cheer me up after reading Clothe Me in Seasons, and needless to say, not only did it work, but I ended up continuously squealing and making a lot of this face–> :OOO!!!! and fanning myself for 3 days straight. And apparently ticklish!Zuko just has me weak everywhere I fucking can’t. Just. FUCK JUST HONESTLY THIS FIC MAKES ME WANNA HUG ZUKO 24/7 BLARGHAGHGAHGHSGDUHJSA *NIGEL THORNBERRY NOISESx10000000000000000000000000000000000000*

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where; I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close. (Pablo Neruda)”
Yes this is mine. Not sure if I’m still going to finish this any time soon because this fic has me on eternal writer’s block ugh, so read at your own risk basically. The reason I’m posting this though is because I’m currently working on a Zutara multichap AU as well as a Korrasami/Zutara oneshot which I’ll be publishing on FFn or Ao3 soon (?), and if you’d like to get a glimpse of how I write and see if it suits your taste, you can use this to check and see. I’d also appreciate some feedback on it if you guys can spare the time!
so um. Sorry this turned out rly long but lol tl;dr apart from my shameless plug just read all of these ok just read everything tfghjkl;.
PS @satans-sock-sorter Thank you! Your blog is rad af as well <3 <3 <3 Really sorry again for not getting back tot his sooner! But in any case, have fun and have a nice day too!!!!!!!!<3 <3 <3
