what is rich

I think I’m stuck on him because I just remember this one time we were sitting on my bed and he started talking about things he liked. And he said he wanted to create a comic. His entire face lit up all I saw was his excitement, it radiated off of him and like bounced to me. I forgot I had depression I forgot what happened to me the only thing that mattered at that moment was how happy he was. His energy made me feel something that I still remember almost 4 months later and for the first time I think I caught a glimpse of what it’s like to be in love

Hi, I'd like to ask your opinion on something. If Zutara had happened (as it should've) and Katara had become a firelady (i really wanted that to happen) and then their oldest kid had been a waterbender, do you think s/he could have inherited the throne?

Hmm. I’m gonna have to say yes.

With the emphasis on the could, instead of would.

See, the thing is, despite the Fire Nation’s supposed* preferential treatment of firebenders, the Fire Nation is, at its heart, a meritocracy.

Just look at what we see of their rich and powerful: If you count out Zhao and the Royal Family**, they are all nonbenders.

You have Piandao, who is referred to with respect by people, you have Mai’s parents, who are sent to govern Omashu, the second largest and most powerful city in the Earth Kingdom, which speaks of a large amount of trust placed in them, and, of course, you have Mai and Ty Lee themselves, Azula’s closest friends. If there were any actual discrimination against nonbenders going on, there’s no way that the crown princess could run around with two acting as her sword and shield.

When you add to that just how easily Ozai usurped Iroh’s throne, because Iroh failed at Ba Sing Se, and how there was literally no pushback when Zuko got banished, because he was “weak”, and the way he was accepted back, no question, when he “proved” himself, and the fact that, even though for all intents and purposes he had committed high treason, Zuko could still win the throne in a duel, and have that be both legal and legitimate, tells me that the Fire Nation values strength and commitment far more than whether you are a firebender or not.

Now, the point of all of this it to say: If Zuko and Katara had more than one child, the one who would inherit the throne would be the one that shows the most dedication and skill for the position, regardless of their bending abilities, or whether they’re the eldest or not.

Besides, if you look at the thematic and narrative significance of a moment like that, that the Nation that propagated that they are “[…] the sons and daughters of fire! The superior element!” embracing a ruler that is the opposite element, it just really fits, you know?

*Which we never actually see.

**And not even the whole Royal Family, since Ursa is a nonbender.

Sorry I stumbled on a gif set the other day and couldn’t get this out of my head.

THEY BOTH DO IT. Who taught these boys this move? Do you think it was Peggy?

Peggy (1940s): If I tell them falling over is a Good Fighting Tactic™ do you think they’ll believe me?

Peggy (2010s): Huh.

Rich: …The Squips did this to him. Threw him off his balcony. It’s a miracle he’s still…ya know?

It’s been three months…but I’m not giving up hope yet! Jakey D is tough as nails and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s just waiting for the perfect moment to wake up again…

Just. I’ll be here for ‘im, like always, ‘cause he’s my pal. The closest bro I got.
