the misfits band

friendly reminder that katara, with no formal training, held her own against a waterbending master at age fourteen by being perseverant, strong-willed, and unyielding.

friendly reminder that sokka, without leadership from his father, held his own in a group of benders as the strategist, planner, and warrior by being inventive, adaptable, and hardworking.

friendly reminder that katara, with a few weeks under pakku’s tutelage, mastered waterbending and could best any man or woman in the northern tribe.

friendly reminder that sokka, with days under the guidance of piandoa, mastered swordsmanship, forged his own sword, and bested the master himself.

friendly reminder that katara, a waterbender, took down the fire nation princess during sozin’s comet with the aide of her wit and skill.

friendly reminder that sokka, a warrior, took out a fleet of fire nation airships with the aide of his wit, his skill, and his friends.

friendly reminder that katara, the girl who took on the role of her mother, held together a band of misfits in the most trying times. 

friendly reminder that sokka, the one who thought was not special, stuck by his sister and his friends through everything.

friendly reminder that these two characters stand as amazing veterans from a tribe where no one thought twice about bowing down to the fire nation. 

friendly reminder that these two characters traveled the world with a twelve year old and his bison because they took a chance on destiny.

friendly reminder that these two characters are role models to children all over the world.

friendly reminder that these two characters stuck by the theme of the show: they took control of their own destiny and saved the world.

now remind me, friends, what makes katara and sokka so replaceable? 

oh btw one of the many things i love about wonder woman movie is that they will literally tell you that steve and diana are super pretty. like…they won’t feed you the CW crap that this is just how normal people looks like. etta says that diana is the most beautiful woman ever and no glasses can hide that but that’s because she is demigoddess. diana asks steve if he is the human standard and he tells her that he is not, that as spy he needs to be above average - and that’s true, because otherwise his “charms” would not work at doctor poison.

so yes, i’d love to see more “real” looking people at big screen, like etta candy, for example, and steve’s merry band of misfits but i appreciate they didn’t set diana and steve as standard.
