SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN

Katara appreciation time:
- Can we talk about how she learned all her water-bending mostly by herself?
- Can we talk about her never ending ingenuity throughout the series?
- Can we talk about how she is only 13 and was able to defeat both a fire master (Azula) and a water master (Hama)?
- Can we talk about her pity towards the man who killed her mother?
- Can we talk about how she never stopped caring for her friends and family even in the worst situations?Say what you want about Katara, but she is the best role model/friend you could have had in the entire series. She had always kept it together even when she lost her mother and when Aang had his issues.
Honestly, all of my favorite characters from ATLA and Korra are the female characters.
I like the male characters, but the female characters just strike me as so much more interesting, dynamic, and amazing. They have agency and purpose, and its just refreshing as hell to see that in a show.
Can we talk about how she has dark skin and dark, thick hair and how nurturing and talented and determined she is and how much I fucking LOVE this?

The portrayal of equality on this show is absolutely incredible. Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Avatar: The Legend of Korra has managed to equate everyone onto a level playing field.
In the world of Avatar, the only thing that matters is the heart and the drive to fight for what you believe in.
The fact that they went out of their way to have men and women fighting together was amazing. This show took it even further. They have created characters that are physically disabled in some way. Teo was paralyzed. Toph was blind. And Ming-Hua has no arms. However, in the world of Avatar, these people are not disabled or handicapped. They are fighters. They are a threat.

People really underestimate this relationship and favor Katara’s grief over Aang so much that we never really get to see fan art of her and her brother.
Ultimately, I feel like Sokka’s death had the potential to hurt her the most - especially if we consider that Aang could have died before him, and she was all she really had left.
But that’s all speculative.

Why must you hurt me in this manner?

There are no white people in the avatar universe that’s why it hadn’t already been destroyed 600 avatars cycles ago
The Fire Nation?? Airbenders?? Some people in the Earth Kingdom (like Toph)??
Do you really thinks bunch of monks and clearly Asian modeled people are white do white people really think that they must be the main characters despite there being literally no whites in the show get out
it’s almost as though white people are so habituated to seeing their race as universal that they can’t comprehend that the light skinned characters in a show that is clearly and directly influenced by various Asian cultures might be …. not white
