toph is awesome

Cover poster for shamelessliarkickapow’s Call Me Katto:

“The Avatar awakens two years late, when only a token resistance still struggles against the Fire Nation. Katara disguises herself as a boy to follow Sokka into war. Not only must she hide her gender from her comrades, she has to help the Avatar while also dodging the creepy prince who’s taken such an intense interest in her.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY @picnokinesis !!!!!! :D :D :D (shhh! It’s still the 1st here, it still counts)

I’m not sure where this idea came to be tbh? xD I just knew I wanted Ford and Eric to interact cause that’ll be awesome! So I drew them running away from the law… cause of course xD They just randomly ran into one another in Eric’s dimension while both running from whoever was chasing them and so this happened haha

I think they would make a good team if I’m honest 


Once they’re safe, they drink tea/coffee

so i've had this idea for a swapped nations zutara au; so katara's the fire princess, and zuko's the eldest son of hakoda (which means zukka brothers awesomeness). however, while katara was banished, she has no physical mutilation (or it's hidden like on her back, bc fuck ozai) whereas zuko still has his facial scar, which he got when yon rah murdered kya (maybe he took yon rah by surprise??? or the guy was just a dick), so he's extra bitter towards the fire nation, and even more determined (1)

anonymous said: to keep everyone safe (and sokka is super protective of the whole scar topic bc while zuko’s the eldest, he needs looking after too and sokka is a good brother like that, with help from Boomerang ofc). so they find aang in the iceberg, and katara comes to their village in their warship and all the shenanigans happen. but when katara sees zuko’s scar properly, that begins to sow doubt in her mind about the fire nation’s purpose in war bc (either she realized it herself or asked iroh) he’s not (2)

anonymous said: much older than her, but the scar is quite old at this point (they’re their canon ages) so it would have been done to a child. how the hell is that spreading the fire nation’s greatness across the world? and while all the canon shenanigans happen to the gaang (including sokka, suki and toph being awesome - sukka and sibling!toko - and also training aang - zuko in waterbending, and then later katara in firebending - etc.), the zutara bonding also begins to happen; so zuko reveals he got his (3)

anonymous said: scar when his mother was murdered and katara reveals her mother is also gone - the southern raiders has the added tension of finding the guy who not only murdered kya, but also mutilated zuko - and all the while they’re growing closer and gaining an understanding like they did in canon; which is partly why the ship is so good imo; they understand each other so well. so yeah, sorry it’s so disorganized, just wanted to share it - rlly love your blog btw; sokka is amazing <3 (4)

i love this idea! i’ve always thought katara and zuko’s personalities suit their opposite element immensely well, so i can totally imagine katara being fire nation and zuko being from a water tribe. also zuko/sokka being siblings? it’s a dream come true, imagine the sass, imagine the banter, imagine the protectiveness. i always love culture swap aus so i’d be all for reading that. you should’ve hit one our writers up with this, maybe they can turn it into something magical! what do you say @babyfairybaekhyun, @theadamantdaughter, @honxrable, @seapruncs??

and yes, sokka is amazing. the most amazing. so amazing that every time i see a piece of sokka content on this site i reblog no matter how many times i’ve seen it because i’m so deprived of him

Sokka is a mad genius, and I love him. This part was just so much fun to write. It was really good to finally write some real bonding between the two halves of this family. It probably says something that I feel Sokka is the most well-adjusted of the gaang (besides Suki, who is so well-adjusted it’s almost unreal), but I try not to think about it too much ^^”

“Are you sure this is the place?” Sokka asked, squinting at the ragged old apartment building. It was sturdier than some of its neighbours, made of stone rather than wood, but it still looked as though it had seen better days.

“If this place is the address I gave you, then yeah.” Toph replied caustically.

Sokka winced. “Right, right, sorry.” He muttered. “It just doesn’t seem like the sort of place Dad would stay. I mean, he has his cabin on the ship. Oh, but I guess it’s more his… wife’s? Place?” Sokka trailed off, bewilderment stealing his voice.

It was just… strange for there to be a member of their family that he didn’t know. The only thing he knew about her was that she was Earth Kingdom, and called Xia, which Toph had told him on the way out to the lower ring. It was uncomfortable, and Sokka really wanted to meet her and get the awkward ‘welcome to the family, stranger’ stage out of the way. At the same time, he wasn’t entirely sure he wanted to meet her. He’d told Katara it wasn’t fair of her to blame Xia or Dad, and he held to that, but he also felt a bit of discomfort at the idea of some new woman taking Mum’s role in their family.

“If you say so? Usually women don’t own property in the Earth Kingdom.” Toph told him.

Sokka squinted at her. “You mean… Men run the house?” He asked, trying not to be judgemental. After all, if Kyoshi Island could train its women to fight, then it was entirely possible that their men took care of the house.

“Run it? No. That’s the wife’s job. Own it? Absolutely.”

“…There’s… a difference?” Sokka asked.
