Kuvira for the 4 headcanons meme, please?
What I think realistically:
When she was little, Suyin and Bataar gave her plenty of love, but they didn’t know how to address her trauma, and they gave her few boundaries. Her own parents had been fairly strict, and she was left feeling adrift and uncertain, leaving her both with a profound need to control and ensure that things are controlled, and a deep resentment toward anyone trying to reign her in.
What I think is hilarious:
Meelo tries to interrogate her in her cell about all the ways her plan went wrong so he can do better. She refuses to talk to him because he’s interupting her favorite radio program.
What is soul-crushing:
I mentioned with Azula’s post that Azula simultaneously wants and needs love desperately, yet can’t accept a relationship built on it because she can’t force or control someone else’s love for her. Kuvira is similar but not entirely the same there. She wants love just as desperately but she is able to accept it. Unfortunately, she feels compelled to control the person giving her that love, to ensure they can never deprive her of it. This is not of course how love works, and this relentless control is exactly what stifles love.
What doesn’t work but I don’t care:
Suyin regularly visits her cell with a pai sho board and a jug of strong liqueur. She makes sure Kuvira has a radio so she can listen to serial dramas and they can gripe about them together.
