You know, the Mistral WoR is interesting, since it casts a new light on past events.

Specifically this one.

No, this isn’t about Pyrrha. This is about Cinder. Since Pyrrha was basically dead when this happened.

What do we now know about Mistral now that we didn’t at the time this scene aired? They tend to share one thing in common, despite their diversity…

Where does Cinder claim she’s from in her speech again?

And it’s well established that Pyrrha is from Mistral. With that in mind, the scene could be read as Cinder respectfully disposing of her body by scattering her to the wind. Which would imply that Cinder does have some values and standards. Which is interesting in light of her state in Volume 4….

Makes me wonder where they’ll take her character. I was mostly memeing when I compared her to Zuko in that one post. But I can’t help but wonder if there is good in her in some way… Probably not though. Either way, it’s a nice character moment. Maybe.

I've seen your anti-Maiko posts and how Mai is such a "horrible" girlfriend when Zutara is actually very toxic and unhealthy. Zuko constantly tries to make Katara go against her morals(The Southern Raiders), while Katara is mostly seen planning Zuko's death( The Western Air Temple) for betraying her. "But Zuko and Katara forgave each other"- Apparently not since Katara doesn't hesitate to have Aang kill Zuko if he became like his father. Zutara is the most abusive ship in the entire series.

Zuko constantly tries to make Katara go against her morals, eh? Do you know how much persuasion Zuko used to get Katara to go after Yon Rha?


The only thing he did was tell her he knew how to find him. You refuse, like Aang, to accept that going after Yon Rha was actually part of Katara’s moral code. She says in the show, “Now that I know he’s out there, now that I know we could find him, I feel like I have no choice.” It wasn’t, “Now that Zuko has tried to persuade me to kill Yon Rha, I feel like I have no choice.” Katara has always wanted–NEEDED–to face this man, and the only thing stopping her was not knowing where he was. Also, if Zuko “constantly” (as in repeatedly) tried to get Katara to go against her morals, why was it that he didn’t try to persuade her to kill Yon Rha when she let him go? The only person Zuko was arguing against in terms of morals was Aang, not Katara. It is Aang who was trying to get Katara to go against what she felt was right and forgive Yon Rha, regardless of whether Katara wanted to or felt like he deserved it. 

But here’s a good example of Zuko respecting Katara’s morals. When Katara refused, for weeks, to forgive Zuko for what he did, Zuko didn’t try (as Aang did) to try and guilt Katara into forgiveness. He put up with her sniping on a, to borrow a term, constant basis, and when he had reached the end of his patience and demanded to know what her problem was, he accepted her answer. He didn’t try to argue with her further; he actively went out of his way to make sure she forgave him in tune with her conscience, not his own.

Katara is “mostly” seen planning Zuko’s death, is she? Hmm, please point out to me the scene in which she does so. Threatening someone who betrayed you is not the same thing as actively planning to murder him. I encourage you to read my post about Katara and Zuko’s dialogue in the final arc. After Zuko joined the GAang, Katara and Zuko have 9 scenes of antagonistic dialogue with each other. Neutral or positive dialogue? 26. So even if I took your statement of “mostly planning Zuko’s death” to mean “mostly hating on Zuko,” that would be false. 

“But Zuko and Katara forgave each other”- Apparently not since Katara doesn’t hesitate to have Aang kill Zuko if he became like his father.

Katara: But I am ready to forgive you.

What are you suggesting, exactly–that Katara was lying when she said this? That she didn’t actually mean it? That she gave Zuko a fake hug and was insincere in her friendship? What a horrible person you must think Katara is!

Of course she forgave him. And citing the post-A:TLA comics doesn’t change that fact, especially when there’s also evidence of a positive relationship:

But while we’re on the comics, since you think Zutara is abusive because Katara nodded when Aang was going to her for advice on killing Zuko, doesn’t that make Zuko and Aang’s friendship abusive, too? I mean, it was Aang, and not Katara, who actually said, “A promise is a promise” and went into the Avatar State with the intention of killing him. Aang and Zuko had more negative interactions than Katara and Zuko did. So that must mean Aang and Zuko “didn’t really mean it” when they hugged at the end of A:TLA, right? And that they were totally insincere when saying they would rebuild the world together? 

Conflict is not the same thing as hatred and antagonism is not the same thing as abuse. But thank you for adding to my list of canon shippers who think someone paired with their favorite characters is abusive. I don’t understand, if you really think Katara constantly plotted Zuko’s death, why you would want her with Aang; or if you really think Zuko constantly tries to warp people’s moral codes, why you would want him with Mai. I’ve yet to get a straight answer on that question; if you have one for me, I’d love to hear it.

For all of Azula and Zuko’s dysfunctional relationship, there were hints that Azula did care for Zuko beyond using him as a pawn. 

She also seemed actually glad that she was back home (despite the cunning mind games she played re: Aang being alive); she actually seemed concerned when she learned Zuko visited Iroh in prison and instead of giving him up to their father or threatening him and giving him advice. 

Then when she looked for him in their old house on Ember Island and invited him back to their group on the beach and the talk they all had around the fire on the beach. 

Can someone pls explain to me how bryke managed u to ruin such an amazing storyline?!? Like wth are the comics?!? I didn’t like åäng before but the comics just pushed it further. And Ik they didn’t like zutara but they couldn’t even let them be friends. It’s like “oh u just saved my life and almost died in the process but we aren’t going to interact anymore”. And Idk what this żüki bs is but I’m not for it like bryke why are u going to ruin the only canon couple I liked (Sukka)🙄

ok so i really love Azula from avatar and i really love the firebender! keith au's that i see so concept: firebender keith who has blue fire like azula

ahh that is so cool what i think would be super cool is like…i know ppl have compared keith to zuko for forever but i think they share that lack of emotional stability so i think it’d be really cool to see an au where keith transitions from red/orange kind of uncontrollable or immature fire into someone who can shoot electricity/blue fire and gains that control over both his bending and emotions. totally dig it.

She could hear the muffled argument from down the hall. Zuko hadn’t wanted her there, but there was no way in the two realms that she would stand around waiting in his personal chambers while Zuko confronted his sister. 

If it were up to her, she would have been in the room with them, supporting her partner. Of course, in the end it was never up to Mai.

The fundamental problem with being in love with royalty.

As soon as she had heard the latch on the doors to Azula’s room click again she had been down the hallway and out of sight, hurrying back to where she ought to be. It had gone alright then. At least, Zuko hadn’t lost any limbs. There would have been a far greater fuss if that were the case.

She arranged herself in a chair in Zuko’s quarters, a scroll draped lazily in her hand, her eyes trained on it as though she had been reading the entire time. Casual. Nothing of suspicion going on here. 

Mai looked up as the latch on Zuko’s door clicked.
