Seismic sense is a sub-skill of earthbending that constitutes for physical sense. This skill enables earthbenders to detect vibrations in the ground to perceive objects, people, and other aspects of their environment, essentially acting as sonar, but through earth and metal.
have you ever thought about how beautiful it is that we fall in love with fictional characters? these characters don’t exist and will never know we exist but we still love them so genuinely. we don’t gain anything material from loving them but we still do. i think loving fictional characters is one of the most selfless things we do
Can you believe this song is (over) 10 years old??? In any case, I was feeling cheesy as heck, so I decided to do a quick cover of this flash to the past of a tune… I still do like it, no matter how over-played it may be.
Original Song from Plain White T’s Instrumental from [here]
The AVATAR STATE is a defense mechanism designed to empower you with the skills and knowledge of all the past Avatars. The glow is the combination of all your past lives, focusing their energy through your body. In the AVATAR STATE, you are at your most powerful, but you are also at your most vulnerable. If you are killed in the AVATAR STATE, the reincarnation cycle will be b r o k e n and the Avatar will cease to exist.
Korra can't make contact with the past Avatars any more but they're still in the Spirit World
Ok but what if Korra and Asami see Aang and he’s asking all about Tenzin and Kya and Bumi and Katara and Zuko and he gets really excited that they found Toph and he thinks it’s hilarious that she’s just been hiding in a swamp this whole time and he wants to know what his grandkids are like and he wants to know all about the new airbenders and about all the bison and about how Pema’s doing after having four bender kids and

I hope you’re ready for the feels, buckle up cuz this is gonna be intense
The paladins are red cloaked travelers, except for Shiro, who is a white cloaked traveler (more on that later).
Keith is the main character
He meets Hunk in the Bridge
Keith pretty much has a solid goal that is to reach the Mountain, though he doesn’t know why. He just feels like going there, like he’ll learn (or remember) something important if he does.
Hunk doesn’t have a clear goal like he does. Instead, Hunk spends most of his time in the Bridge. He is fascinated by the murals and the story of those who came before. He spends most of his time trying to decipher it and helping other travelers through the Bridge. He rarely crosses it himself though.
Keith meets Lance in the Descent.
Lance is very unique in that he manages to goad Keith into competing with him. Lance is the only one out of all of them who can manage to make Keith forget about the mountain, even if momentarily.
For most of the Descent, Keith and Lance have an amicable race to the bottom (the Tunnels).
It’s one of the few moments throughout the journey where Keith genuinely has fun.
Lance… never follows Keith after they reach the door to the Tunnels. He also never watches the memories of the those who came before. Keith never asks him why and Lance is glad that he doesn’t.
Lance is really scared of the those who came before, though he’ll never say it. He is also really scared of the Guardians roaming the Tunnels (he’s pretty much a case of “BEEN THERE DONE THAT”, LANCE WILL NOT RETURN THERE EVER. Scared is putting it mildly, Lance is heavily traumatized by them).
Much like Hunk, Lance is (seemingly) without a goal. There is more to it than that though (more on that later).
Keith meets Pidge at the Temple.
Pidge is… not okay. Pidge is visibly fidgety. Keith is concerned.
She carries a lantern with her and she’s very interested in the murals but Keith can notice right away the differences between her and Hunk.
Hunk was more into it casually. He loves studying the ruins. Pidge? It’s like she’s in the brink of finding out the whole truth to the universe and she’s so stressed out she’s like a college student during the last month of their last semester. Keith’s pretty sure he saw her running ahead at some point to puke.
Unlike Hunk, Lance and Keith, Pidge already knows the history of the civilization that came before them, though not much. She simply knows of their existence and she knows that shit happened. She’s desperately trying to find out what it was. You could say that is her goal.
Finally, the Mountain. Guess who’s there. Take a wild fucking guess who the final person Keith meets is.
Shiro is… tired.
You do not fuck around with him and you do not fuck around with the Guardians in this area.
But if a Guardian finds someone, Shiro will literally do anything in his power to protect himself and his companion. He willl damn well fight the damn Guardian if he has to.
Shiro doesn’t talk. At all. He doesn’t have any passions like Hunk, he doesn’t have fun like Lance and he does not care for the history of the ancient civilization like Pidge. He doesn’t have a goal like Keith. Shiro is just there and he will sit down and wait for his companion at the base of the mountain then guide them to the summit. That’s his whole purpose.
Bonus: Allura and Coran as the ancestors
