Sporadic thoughts and random fancies of a 16 year old... how original.

“Right. By the way, Zuzu dear, that’s the third time we passed that tree.”
I know it’s probably not gonna be that kind of comic, but I want ALL sorts of road trip shenanigans to happen to the royal fire siblings on their search for their mumsy, haha. c: This is literally the comic I’ve been waiting on for YEARS, not for Zuko’s mom, but for closure on Zuko and Azula’s sibling relationship.
edit: LMAO OOPS OMG. the scar’s on the wrong side because I flipped the drawing midway through my process hahaha. OTL </toolazytofix>

“She is a true prodigy”
“My own mother thought I was a monster”
“He was a prodigy, mastering my father’s psychic bloodbending by the time he was fourteen.”
“That monster already took away your bending”
The complex “antagonists” of Last Airbender and Legend of Korra are always so fascinating and just capture your heart. I particularly love the similarities between these two: normal early childhood, both extremely talented, controlling messed up father, grew up with corrupted ways of thinking, given high expectations, genius manipulations of allies and enemies, and finally the tragic demise revealing that maybe they’re not as villainous as we all thought them to be.
They were prodigies, put on a pedestal by their fathers but deemed monsters by society and those around them. Are they really clever or just misunderstood?
Azula’s hidden insecurities and longings for love despite her obvious power and control led to her sad deterioration. Similarly, (although it was not as clear in the show as Azula’s story, so this is mostly assumption) Noatok’s deeply ingrained power philosophies that deemed failure unacceptable and bottled dispair for his childhood and relationship with his brother caused him to just give up.
I’d like to think that Aang’s statement to Korra at the end of the finale applies to these two as much as it did for both Avatars. Although, the effect for them is not as positive.
“When we hit our lowest point, we are open to greatest change”
Azula’s story was so much stronger, though. Amon’s began and ended within 20 minutes and frankly I think the people talking about how ~emotional~ it makes them are full of shit. Amon and Tarrlok’s story wasn’t consistent and it still didn’t, in my opinion, give a good explanation for their mindsets and behavior. And Amon’s tears moments before his death… I seriously don’t think that he saw his end coming, so then why was he crying? Because he’d lost and he was disappointed? That’s the only conclusion I can come to, because I don’t buy that he was truly sorry for what he did to Tarrlok. Unless he really was just so emotionally fucked up, but then that doesn’t seem at all consistent with the calm cool and collected villain we knew throughout the season.
Whatever, I was super disappointed with Amon’s reveal and backstory; I thought it was a mess.
this might hurt.

Day 6/15: Character I need to defend: Azula
with bonus boring text post explaining my choice
I originally intended to put Azula as my favorite character, but decided to put her here. Azula is the character I can most relate to. She is a brilliant strategist, a long-range thinker, and a decisive individual. As a firebending prodigy she learned earlier on the importance of power, hence she grew-up forceful and focused. Although she is easily deemed as a villain she is not necessarily evil. Her inclinations and actions are very precise and oftentimes ruthless because she feels the need to be perfect simply because it is what is expected from a prodigy like her. A prodigious child, albeit impressive, still needs guidance and love. Azula had all this power and talent which was not nurtured correctly. Her whole life she felt distant from her mother who she thought saw her as a monster, and as a compensation for it she became obsessed with perfection. Had her mother showed her the same amount of love she did to Zuko she wouldn’t be so inconsiderate and abrasive. (Also, can I just point out that her flame is the most beautiful bending in the whole series.)

“I’m sorry it has to end this way, brother.”
“No you’re not.”
