A woman from the Southern Water Tribe does something that makes some spirity things happen.

This results in the world gaining a new airbender.

Sarcasm guy shows skeptism about airbender guy…

…until the airbender shows sarcasm guy his moves. 

Meanwhile, Zuko finds out about this airbender, and tries to find him with a dragon…

…but fails.

In the end, the airbender and his team change the world.

Did I just describe Aang, or Zaheer? 

edit: people are forgetting that Iroh is the Dragon of the West. So, two dragons. A literal one, and a figurative one. 

  • Mayor Morishita :We've put aside the old hatreds. Here, earthbenders and firebenders live in peace. I won't allow you to destroy what we have.
  • Zuko:Do not deceive yourself. These people are not happy here. I see the sadness in their eyes.
  • Mayor Morishita :That's not what I see when I look in my wife's eyes. I married an earthbender. So you see, when I warn you not to disrupt our lives here, I'm not speaking just as a Fire Nation governor; but as a man protecting his family.
101 Things I Love About ATLA

Goal: Write 1 thought every day re: why I love ATLA

#77: Awesome scene cuts, whether for humor or thematic emphasis.

For example: This scene from “The Warriors of Kyoshi”:

Prince Zuko: How am I going to find [the Avatar], Uncle? He is clearly a master of evasive maneuvering.

Sokka: You have no idea where you’re going, do you?

This scene cut provides humor, of course. But the contrast in coloring and lighting also directs our eyes toward certain things. Zuko’s map is obviously dimly lit and dark, compared with Sokka’s. But the shadows falling on and around Zuko’s map also limit the audience’s visual focus to the land masses on which the Avatar has been sighted. The shadows subtly communicate that Zuko is obsessed with and zeroed in on his quarry.

5 things au--hufflepuff zuko? i don't know if tumblr ate my first 3 tries at sending this ask sorry for any repeats

This was the only one I got, so no need to apologize.

1. Sokka, who is a Muggle, and only occasionally jealous of his sister’s awesome magic skills, is a total NERD.  He plans to get a degree in engineering, and his ultimate goal is to have a job where he can blow things up.  His mad demolitions skills will be very useful in the fight against Azula.  He is also really enthusiastic about Blackadder and Monty Python.

2. Ever since Azula found out that she’s Voldemort’s daughter, she has done her best to make lemonade out of lemons.  She has been seeking out the old supporters of her father and courting them.  She is not a particular believer in blood purity, but she does believe in a natural aristocracy and an inborn right to rule, something very attractive to Voldemort’s old supporters, who of course imagine themselves as that aristocracy.

3. Azula’s attempts to ingratiate herself with the pureblood supremacists who supported her father makes things very uncomfortable for muggleborn Ty Le, who is having a hard enough time in Slytherin, and as Azula’s minion and abuse victim.  It also disgusts Mai, who is sick of hearing that rhetoric from her family, and resents her deeply for her treatment of herself and Ty Lee.

4. Jet is two years older than Zuko, Azula, and the rest, and was old enough to remember his parents dying in the Ministry purges.  He has never liked Zuko and Azula, and in some sense viewed them, as Bellatrix’s children, as personally responsible for their mother’s crimes.  This only grew worse when he finds out the twins are Voldemort’s children.

5. Toph likes to make a really bright flash of light before charging into battle, to leave her opponents disoriented and induce temporary blindness.  Zuko, Aang, and Katara have developed the really bad habit of running into battle with their eyes closed because of this.

#76: The framing of the below two screenshots in “The Southern Air Temple.” The first shines light on Zuko’s “good half,” with the gentle and wise Uncle Iroh looking over his shoulder, and half of the world behind him.  The second covers Zuko’s “bad half” with darkness, and behind him is nothing but the void.  You can also see that in the second shot, lines appear on Zuko’s face – lines that reflect the pain and anger he feels about his past (represented by his scar).
