am i the only one who is pretty sure this is a water bending move?

I’m a firm believer that the best benders are those who look beyond their own element’s bending techniques and discover new ways of bending. Look at Toph, she bends completely differently from other earthbenders, and she’s one of the most powerful benders in the world. Look at Iroh, he devised lightning redirection from waterbending. This just shows that Zuko is a great firebender.

I think it probably has more to do with the way Zuko changed from the beginning to the end of the story. Each bending art is modeled after a martial art that closely mimics the element. Perhaps Zuko’s change in bending style is supposed to represent how his once fiery spirit had become more tranquil like a water bender’s.

this move directly copies the one Katara used on him in Siege of the North 2 when she pummeled him with a snowball. This scene here is after the Bitter Work episode where Iroh teaches Zuko how to redirect lightning using a Waterbending technique AND instructs him in the value of learning from the other nations. So the fact that here Zuko is using a water bending movie that his adversary used on him last season shows that he’s listening to his Uncle’s advice and hints at the beginning of his redemption arc. basically this 2 second clip is another example of why this show is brilliant and everyone should watch it.

Wow look at this amazing letter written by a 15 year old in response to Emma Watson’s speech! It’s stunning how influential her speech was and the etiquette in which this was written. I hope he makes a wonderful mark on this world!

Why Korra’s visiting so many places

fourth-chakra:

Since the trailer came out I’ve been trying to figure out why Korra’s going to so many places we’ve seen before and after a while I think I have a decent theory.

Korra’s still struggling to recover from her ordeal with Zaheer and the Red Lotus, that’s evident through her nightmares, physical state, and visions (and also the fact that three years later she’s still haunted by her mercury avatar state self (question mark)). I think that at this point she’s just trying to find some inner peace. So what does she do? She cuts her hair and goes off on her own to do some soul searching. But how does she start? By following the footsteps of the gaang.

image

For them, everything started at the Southern Water Tribe. The greatest turning point in Sokka’s and Katara’s lives was when Aang popped out of the iceberg. For Korra, one of the greatest turning points in her life was when she opened the southern spirit portal. She seems to be in Earth Kingdom clothing which makes me believe that she started her spiritual journey from the Earth Kingdom here instead of running away from home while she was staying there recovering. Perhaps Korra is here reflecting on the choices she’s made while being the avatar and whether they’ve been for the better.

The next place the gaang went to was the earth kingdom.

image

In the swamp they faced ghosts of their past and future. We know that Korra sees herself in the Avatar state here and fights this manifestation. She also has hallucinations of drowning in the poison the Red Lotus used on her. In the Swamp she’s fighting her past fears and trying to overcome them.

In the second half of book 2 the gaang went to the Si Wong desert.

image

When they were stranded they felt helpless and alone. This isn’t a new feeling for Korra and here, as part of her spiritual journey, she tries to cope with her feeling of isolation.

Finally the gaang visited the fire nation.

image

The only places that we’ve seen that have volcanoes were in the Fire Nation: the island with Roku’s temple on it, the island where Roku lived with his family (and the surrounding islands), and the island Aang washed up on in the Awakening. At each of those islands the avatar dealt with their power and often with the avatar state. Here I believe Korra is trying to find balance with her worldly self and the power that was given to her as the avatar if that is Korra there.

I’m not saying this all happens the way I’ve put it here but this is how I can logically think of why she would be visiting these places other than in search of guidance.

Korra’s animal guide is a polar bear-dog, a species that is feared and hunted by the members of her tribe. They’re known to be feral, powerful, deadly. Korra sees one and takes it home as a freaking pet. 

And then Korra’s friends are these people almost no one would typically associate with. Two of them are orphans who grew up on the streets, forgotten by literally everyone in the world. They hold former ties to criminality and dangerous triads. Then another one is the daughter of a convicted terrorist, and that alone would make anyone naturally suspicious over loyalties. But Korra just accepts all of them whole-heartedly and invites them into her life, ultimately bringing out the best in all of them. She can see so much good where other people cannot, and I just find that so admirable.
