metalbender

So after the events of this episode we can now conclude that Lapis and Peridot’s daily conversations include

  • talking about how great it is to be Steven’s two best friends
  • the benefits of roleplay 
  • “isn’t Amethyst funny” “who’s that”
  • constant…CONSTANT metalbending and waterbending competitions 
  • a two hour gush session about how cool Garnet is (I mean….same)
  • teaching their pumpkin child to swear
  • a literal burn book all about Pearl probably 

So I just really want to share my opinion about something that has been on my mind lately. So, I really like the show Avatar: The last airbender, and my favorite character is Toph Bei Fong. I just love how strong, independent she is and she knows it. She knows she is probably the greatest earthbender in the world, ever. That is something I really appreciate, just as much as I love how she is blind, but that just makes her stronger. She is a great character.

The thing that is bothering me, however, has to do with Toph. Actually, more the fact that she, in the show does not get enough credit by her friends. Like, she freaking INVENTED METALBENDING and they acted like it was normal. At least, what they showed. They also did not show the Gaangs reaction to finding out TOPH WAS FREAKING KIDNAPPED!!! I think that is something the makers should have focused on much more. I want to see more of Toph Bei Fong. I want to know and see everything about her. I want more credit to how great she is.

I also think that no one really understands how strong she is. Like, the picture at the top. I just can’t fathom how strong she is. She deserves so much more credit from the producers and the fans. I just… Writing this made me angry. I love her so much, I would, if I could just jump in their world and freaking marry her.

I just finished The Legend of Korra with my BF, and I so love Lin Beifong. With Korra, it’ probably my favorite character, for she seems tough, strong, muscular, but she got such a kind heart that, maybe, she didn’t learn how to express, being the child of Toph. I don’t know, I just really connect with her. <3
