I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me ‘cause I’m already falling
I’ll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I’m home
Happy Kataang Week! - All the Kataang Hugs! <3
Toph: So let me guess. You brought me out here to tell me your sister’s not as annoying as I make her out to be.
Sokka: Nah, she’s pretty much a pain.
Aang was raised by Monks, that’s why we never got to see his parents.
Korra was raised by Tonraq and Senna, two loving parents.
I’m excited that they’ll get a bigger role in Book 2 ^^ I want to know their perspective as the Avatar’s parents. I have this theory that they stopped having kids because they had to take care of Korra, the Avatar -a bigger responsibility than having a normal child. Especially when Korra had a sheltered life for 17 years.
I ship these two ships.
Sozin and Tarrlok referring to their childhood as a simpler time in their lives.
Fire Nation like throwing people overboard.
Healing the Avatar Spirit!
High Level Techniques of Bending in ATLA progresstion to TLOK.
If you’ve noticed, only a few people in ATLA could perform the high level subsets of bending; Lightning (Azula, Ozai, and Iroh), Metalbending (Toph), and Bloodbending (Katara and Hama). In TLOK, it seems like a lot of people can perform these and it has become more common. It’s quite realistic actually. Back then, only rich people can afford education. As time goes on, modernization required more people who could read and write which would give you jobs, obviously their someone had to teach them how to read and write until it became more common.
With bending, the power plant required firebenders to learn lightning. Someone had to teach them how to create lightning. Toph started out with her metalbending school then establishing her police force (btw I revised the text in Toph’s gif). I doubt Katara taught anyone how to bloodbend, since she is against it herself (I do believe she gave Korra basic information about it). Waterbenders like Tarrlok and Yakone probably figured out a way to bloodbend without the help of the full moon (They were probably part of the Red Monsoons)
I think that benders in TLOK are more skilled than benders in ATLA, but benders in ATLA are more powerful. The benders in ATLA took time to be masters, but they were able to create huge waves, powerful earthquakes, and lightning that could kill you. In TLOK, Mako’s lightning seems to be weaker than Azula’s, which can hurt you but not enough to kill you (Though Bloodbending is another story) Another reason why bending seems to be weaker in TLOK is the war is over, they don’t really need to learn bending to survive compared in ATLA. Now Bending is used for other stuff, like jobs (Pro-Bending Athletes) This gives benders an advantage over non-benders obviously. Mako and Bolin are not exactly masters, but they’re able to get by in the city because of pro-bending.
Just my two cents :D
Yes. All of this. I recently explained the lightning stuff to a friend actually that I
dragged brought into the fandom and he brought up how lightning is such a common bending thing now.
Thinking the metal was impervious but was “destroyed” in the end.

Katara loves both Aang and Korra, she gets to be with the Avatar in 2 lifetimes.
Toph learned to “see” through the use of her earthbending, feeling people and other objects through their vibrations, which she sensed through the ground via her bare feet She can also sense secret tunnels, and she taught this to her daughter.
