Over on tumblr someone had asked me for my opinions on this video: link It is about 50 минуты long, but, in my opinion, is well worth the watch. So I decided to watch it and give my thoughts.

I definitely agree with the first part where the narrator says that Azula’s psychology is the result of a broken family and poor parental upbringing.
But I do disagree with the sadism bit. I’ve typed about this many, many times. I feel like there was really only one time that sadism could be argued and that was when she smiled at the burning of Zuko’s face. But beyond that, I feel like sadism is not a part of her character. As I’ve typed prior, she has done many, many things (including the coup and stopping a senseless torture at the boiling rock) to dispute this.
I also disagree with the Azula always lies bit. I do think that she lies and deceives a fair bit, but I also think that she has a tendency to be very brutally honest.

I am quite sure every person in the Аватар fandom has heard about Zutara and Maiko dozens of times many of those occasions in complicated shipping wars something this Статья is not here to initiate. But how many times have Ты heard of Jinko? How many even remember who Jin is? I am willing to bet not many. She was the girl that Zuko dated when he was stuck in Ba Sing Se as a fugitive of every nation including his Главная and was disguised as a refugee of the name "Lee". In Tales of Ba Sing Se.


Jin was a sweet, innocent, charming girl that had a crush on Zuko and frequented Pao's teashop a lot just for him. When she got the courage to finally ask him out as we can tell she was quite shy Iroh acctepted for Zuko before he could back out. When Zuko begins the дата with her we see him in a visibly bad mood and quite frankly being a jerk. During the дата he is rude and awkward not looking at Jin in the eyes when he is playing with a фрикаделька, фрикадельки moving it around his plate with a pair of chopsticks. Instead of mocking his dorky behavior или getting angry when he yelled "She is not my girlfriend!" at the waiter making a mess of a scene in the restaurant, she is surprisingly...

I've seen it commonly argued that Azula is a sadist and a killer and I disagree whole-heartedly for various reasons. For one thing, she is still a child, a child from an abusive and dysfunctional Главная at that. For seconds, I've always felt as though she has really done nothing different than any other character at the end of the day. I also believe that redemption is very possible for Azula. I wanted to elaborate on this by pulling things from old debates and Статьи I've written, just to throw my opinions into a еще organized format instead of having to re-type the same points every time the discourse is brought up.

I'd like to first address the argument that she was born
evil. This is a very common one I've noticed in the fandom and I disagree so very heavily. She was raised evil, not born evil. Let's be honest; the only parent who paid attention to her was Ozai. And she didn’t have Iroh like Zuko did. Honestly I think that the whole point of them being siblings was to Показать how it could have turned out either way; Azula was the youngest child she could have easily been the ‘failure’ child. If she had her mother and Iroh and Zuko had Ozai the...

The Last Airbender is a 2010 action film that was based on a beloved Показать of the same name. The film got really bad reviews, but I actually really liked the film.

I only saw clips of the animated Показать before watching the live action film so I'm judging this film by itself instead of comparing it to the show. I still haven't watched any full episodes, but I did enough research to understand the plot and characters.

The film focuses on Aang who's the avatar. He's discovered by a duo of siblings, Katara and Sokka, who become his friends. It's up to them to save the world from the evil огонь Nation. Zuko, the son of the огонь Lord, and Zhao, the огонь Lord's секунда in command, are up to no good.

The film has been mocked for combining the whole first season of the Показать into one film. I personally thought this risky decision paid off well. The film was filled with exciting storylines and action scenes. Aang, Katara, Sokka, and the antagonists each get a subplot and all of them are interesting.

A big topic of discussion around Azula is usually what kind of mental illness she has, I tend to discuss that еще and put less talk into the reasons for her losing it.

I've always seen it as a combination of things. She was raised in a broken Главная with a banished mother and a banished and burned brother. I’ve always imagined that her father was very verbally abusive and put a lot of pressure on her to be perfect. And for a while she was perfect, but the минута she Остаться в живых grip on that she started to slip. She was betrayed by both of her Друзья and then very shortly after that blow her father tossed a crown she wasn’t ready for at her. Azula also didn’t have a guiding figure like Zuko did (no Iroh nor Ursa) to help her unlearn some of the worser behaviors that Ozai and her nation instilled in her. By the end of the Показать she had zero support.

The main reason I think that Azula went crazy was because she was basically set up to fall right from the beginning, she just didn't realize it. As a child her only guidance was Ozai who pretty much instilled it into that she had to be perfect. He raised her еще like a solider than a daughter. Pretty much all of...

So I was Чтение a post on tumblr that got me thinking. Basic gist is that someone сказал(-а) Azula couldn’t do anything on her own. My initial thought was to dispute that but then I kind of thought about it and realized this person was kind of right. But not just about Azula. After really thinking about it I realized that none of the characters really can! Hear me out guys; I’m not saying that the Аватар characters are useless on their own, but they are so much stronger when they have others to help them out. In fact I’d like to argue that this is an intended theme in Avatar. Like these characters are strong by their lonesomes. But goodness they are so much stronger together. Not only are all of the Аватар characters are at their best when they are with Друзья and Влюбленные but I would like to say that they are all at their worst when they are alone. From start to finish it was pretty clear that these characters were never meant to accomplish anything huge totally on their own. And no, this isn’t a bad thing at all. In fact I think it’s kind of amazing. There are so many shows and Фильмы that feature characters doing everything unassisted and the main character defeating the...

Something that I think about and mention a lot is how Azula was raised. Namely that she was basically a human weapon for Ozai. He pretty much saw her raw talent as a kid, the potential for power, and groomed her as a war child. In doing this I think that he gave her a very warped sense of self worth among other things. For as hard as she pushes other people, I feel like she holds herself to very high-standards too; no doubt that it's because of how she was raised.

Despite her confidant bravado, I honestly I feel like Azula could be probably one of the most insecure characters on the show. Hear me out; (as mentioned) she has a facade of confidence but if Ты think about it with lines like "almost isn't good enough" I can see her really beating herself up over little things. She likes perfection to the point where even she can't meet her own standards. This is one of the big factors in her breakdown, if I could guess. Her decent into madness was heavily due in part to her failing to meet not just her father's standards but her own. She wasn't even good enough for herself. She worked very heard to achieve her goals and to better the огонь Nation (as she saw it) but...

So I've been really into travel lately and dreaming of places I'd Любовь to see. And then I got to thinking about what places some of my Избранное characters might like to go to. So I thought I'd just consider where all of the Аватар characters might go to if they lived in our world.
    
Aang: I can see him liking Thailand. For me it's a very beautiful place that's just alive with all of the elements. I can see him enjoying a view like this;



That and Thailand has some very elegant temples that I think Aang would be fond of if he was in our world.

The Neatherlands would have been choice two; ya know, windmills and all lmao.

Katara: Venice was kind of the obvious choice for me when looking at Katara. She is right with her element. Venice is a breathtaking place and (like Paris) in my opinion it has a very romantic atmosphere that I think Katara would enjoy. I also think she'd be a Фан of Italian music. Couple that with all of the water and I think Katara would feel right at home.

*Food in the Аватар World*

Naressa:

"Hey all. As some of Ты know and thank Ты for being so kind to reach out to me and speaking to me, though I work in the medical field now I am a culinary school graduate and worked for over a decade in the culinary arts field. Have always been very interested in the foods of Avatar, though they are rarely mentioned. As such, based on seeing them and the brief mention some Еда are given, thought I would open up a discussion about the Еда and recipes from ATLA and LoK. Want to share my recipes. All of the recipes I'll share have been tested by me yes? Please enjoy.

Say what Ты will about Azula, but she's no doubt a complex character and at this point I feel as though they can take her character in any direction; she could either stay evil или become some kind of force for good. Personally I'm hoping to see her become еще of a sassy anti-hero like Regina Mills, I feel like that would work for her.

With that in mind, the first reason that I feel Azula will be redeemed is that I feel as though Mike and Bryan have hinted at it. They've stated in various interviews that Azula is savable and isn't pure evil. A long time back I had purchased a book version of Sozin's Comet. In the book there was a mini interview in the back. One of the Вопросы asked was, "Is Azula really as evil as she seems? или is there еще to her?"
To which Mike answered, "As with all the Аватар characters, even Azula has a softer side, though it's buried very deep. As 'The Beach' and 'Sozin's Comet' showed, she has a lot of unresolved issues with her mother. She really feels that her mother didn't Любовь her as much as Zuko, and this drives her crazy, literally."

I feel like TyZula is a bit of a controversial ship, people either Любовь it или they hate it. So I wanted to explain what has me shipping TyZula.

First and foremost is the silly and minor fact that they look good together. Azula and Tylee are quite opposites right down to their looks. Azula is a еще mature, sharper beauty. Where TyLee is has softer, cuter, more-baby like features. And I think that those opposite features really work.


Similarly I think their personalities compliment each other as well. TyLee is very sweet and caring and optimistic. Azula is еще goal-oriented and a realist. For this I think that the two could help each other out and pick make up for what the other lacks. Azula can offer TyLee some protection and defending; no one would screw with her или try to take advantage of her with Azula around. Likewise Azula could make sure TyLee's naive nature doesn't get her hurt. Likewise TyLee can help Azula become a better person. She could probably help her to relax a little as well. Heaven knows Azula needs that. I also feel like TyLee would be one of the most accepting and forgiving people in Azula's life.

This Статья may contain some spoilers, particularly for those who haven't read Smoke and Shadow yet.

In The Поиск one common thing that kept getting bought up was Ursa telling Azula to "take off that mask, only then will Ты see your true destiny." Recently another layer was added with the semi-recent announcement of the Kemurikage becoming the огонь Warriors--the огонь Nation equivalent of the Kyoshi Warriors. And naturally Azula is their leader.

This just got me thinking about Azula's fate in general. Personally, I think that this role (as a огонь Warrior) Форс-мажоры her way еще than being the огонь Lord does. She always seemed like еще of a warrior to me; it seemed like she enjoyed the thrill of the conquer еще than the ability to rule that followed. I'm not gonna lie though, it was еще like one of those things that was in the back of my head. Like I knew I thought something but I didn't know exactly what that thought was. So up until now, I firmly supported Azula on the throne. And then the огонь Warrior thing was bought up and it just clicked. For me Azula seemed еще like a warrior than a princess; though she of course is both.

Azula hadn’t really considered her appearance in any sort of way at all, much less she hadn’t ever thought herself unattractive.
It never seemed to matter.
Never seemed to come up.
Being a princess, even a solider of sorts, beauty wasn’t something Azula ever thought she’d contemplate.

And yet, the princess found herself standing in front of the mirror wondering what was wrong. She never dwelled on her looks and so she never had the chance to realize that she wasn’t pretty in the slightest. Hadn’t had the chance until now.

The princess rubbed the wetness out of her eyes with the back of her hand. Perhaps this is why TyLee got all of the attention and she got none. Perhaps it was a good thing that no one

Azula had always been praised for her confidence and poweress. Her intimidating presence and her sense of self-worth. The way she talked smoothly to people without missing a beat. And yet she couldn’t seem to muster any of that up now, standing before the mirror.

Set up like the last two, here's an Статья about five songs I think relate to Azula and why. Songs aren't in any particular order.

1. Dysfunctional Family by Cinema Bizarre: I'm a threat to myself I'm a get Armageddon I'm a freak I'm a liar I'm a flirt I deny that I'm no good then I mess It up This song basically reminds me of post-comet Azula. After a certain point she did become a threat to herself; I mean she'd do things like jumping off of Appa from a large height that very well could have killed her if Aang didn't intercept. And the liar thing is pretty self-evident. I mean it was quoted in the Показать that "Azula always lies". I don't think she always lies per-say but she's done it a fair amount of times for this to hold true. I get еще and еще strange I'm going insane I'm building it up just to break it down Ты get what Ты see the product of a dysfunctional family. This set of lyrics definitely reminds me the most of Azula. Her descent into madness was very clearly a rather gradual process--that is to say as the episodes wore on she in essence got "more and еще strange." The going insane part speaks for itself. And of course a good lot of it...

So I'm trying something different now. Usually I tend to type 'why I like my favorites' Статьи или 'why I don't like my least favorites'. So this time I decided to try something new and type about what I like about a character I'm not to fond of.
I decided to do this with Katara because, of all the characters on my dislike list, I think she's probably the most likable.

One of my Избранное things about Katara is that she's just a genuinely nice girl. She always goes out of her way to help those who need her help--like that town she dressed as the Painted Lady for. I may not like her character but I am 100% down with that and I can relate to just wanting to help people. Along the same lines I can appreciate that she's a merciful person. Like when she decided not to kill the man who killed her mother. I would have kicked his жопа, попка a good one. But she let the dude live and that takes a certain kind of strength.

Despite some of my past arguments she has her selfless moments. I do think she's done some pretty selfish things--especially surrounding the water scroll--but she's also done a lot that was completely selfless; again I refer to the polluted river...

One of the things I noticed about Аватар is the significance of the spirit disguises. Each disguise speaks volumes about the character using it and reflects their personality sort of like their bending styles.

I’ll start with the Painted Lady and Katara;



The real Painted Lady was a lot of things for the people of Jang Hui. She was a protector. A healer. A beacon of hope. She was a water spirit with assumably a gentle heart.

This is not unlike Katara herself. One of Katara’s key character traits was her hopefulness and the hope she instilled in other people. And in assuming the persona of the Painted Lady she fulfilled the hope role already made by the real Painted Lady. Furthermore Katara is also a healer. Almost right off the bat this was established. And she didn’t fail there, not at all; she helped cure the sickly of Jang Hui. In destroying the factory polluting the Jang Hui river she also fulfilled the spirit’s role as a protector.

As I was posting on a different tumblr post I realized some things. Namely (and obviously each firebender has his/her own style.

Starting with Mako;




He tends to lightning bend with an open palm. The first shot is a bit hard to tell (as to whether или not his pinky and the finger Далее to it are actually touching his palm) either way around his bending is еще open then everyone else’s. Perhaps this is an indicatior that he doesn’t know how to do it as well, maybe it’s the opposite. Perhaps it’s simply another sign that the Аватар universe changed. As it got older there came new techniques.



Aang is interesting; his lightningbending (rather method of redirecting it) is very loose. His two fingers are spread apart. Every other bender keeps those two fingers firmly together. This I think is a clear sign that he’s new at lightningbending and is struggling to control it. The lightning is kind of pushing his fingers apart.

The еще days that passed, the wearier Azula grew. She was tired of long flights on Appa listening to the Water Tribe siblings bicker. She was tired of setting up camp on chilly nights. And of finding some Космос to sleep that provided enough distance from the gang. But that always left her a distance from the огонь and heaven forbid she tried to start her own.

She was tired of sleeping cold.

Most of all she was tired of trying to sleep with her mother talking so loudly in her ear.

Azula folded her arms over her chest, waiting for the Аватар and his Друзья to mount Appa. She huffed in disgust. The shaggy thing smelled terribly and needed a good wash. Even he hated her, of course he did, he’s the avatar’s pet.
Naturally she hated the бизон back.

Zuko extended an arm.

She swatted his helping hand away, “I can climb up myself.”

“He was just trying to help.” Katara muttered in a tone that sounded all too close to the one Azula’s mother so loved to use when speaking to her.

It had been only three days since Azula arrived at Rockshire University. The campus, a rather large series of buildings sprawled throughout the rural area. Azula found the setting to be ill-suited for a campus that specialized in areas urban business, marketing, and cooperation.
That was after all what she decided to go there for—aspiring to be only the school’s best business major (minoring in psychology ofcourse)...a straight A, top-of-her-classes goal.

It would be…awkward not having Mai and Ty-Lee around to Converse and discuss matters with. Back in their high school and middle school—and quite possibly elementary school—days Azula would always present to them her projects before Показ them to the rest of the class. или recite her speeches and presentations in front of them first.
Likewise the two would consult her when they needed aid on their own work.
The three always worked on projects together.
And for it, always got вверх marks.

Before anything else is stated I want it to be known that I do Любовь both Azula and Zuko; so no this isn't gonna be a Zuko hate/bash Zuko article.

So instead of getting straight into the actual matter of the agni kai, I'd like to go over why I think Azula in general is еще powerful than Zuko. This I will post from an older Статья (so if Ты read this one Ты may as well just scroll down lol); [i]First and foremost, the obvious; Azula has Blue огонь (supposedly hotter than any other fire) on the show. This is something unique to Azula and Azula alone. Where as Bloodbending is not unique to Katara. And metalbending is not unique to Toph. Others have done it before and (in Toph's case) after. Plus Katara can only do it during the full moon whereas Azula's blue огонь and lighting are present at all times. And she is very skilled in using both.

The секунда most obvious is that Azula has lightning. At the time--prior to the Korra era--few benders could produce it and fewer could redirect it. Azula was one of the few who could produce it and most characters have no way to redirect it as only firebenders can do so. In fact water is a rather conductive element for...

So after a long while I decided I'd make an Статья discussing my general take on a few of the most common reasons users say they hate Kataang. Before getting into any of that I'm not trying to get anyone to change their opinion nor am I trying to stir anything up. But feel free to Дебаты and give your own opinions.

So the first thing I see a lot is;
Aang is way too old for Katara.

I personally believe that Aang is only 12; he is physically and mentally so. This would make him only 2 years younger than Katara. Whereas Zuko is about 17 making him 3 years older than Katara. So really if anyone is 'too old' for Katara, it'd be Zuko. However I don't think age should affect genuine love. Especially since in both cases the age difference is so small.

Now if Aang looked and acted like he was 112 I could see the problem, but he doesn't so I don't see the problem. The reason him being a 112 год old with the mind of a 112 год old (in the body of a 12 год old) would be an issue simply because he has that much еще life experience and is finally wiser. But this isn't the case. Using this logic I can argue that Zuko is too old for her...

Kataang или Zutara, we’re all here because we like one или another. I myself, am on the Kataang side. So I decided to share why in one neat little article. Some parts are taken from my other article.

Why I Like Kataang

First and foremost, I like goofy, light hearted romance еще than I do a serious and mature one. I like things that will make me laugh, something that isn’t full of angst and melancholy. Aang and Katara have еще of a cute and fun relationship. Don’t get me wrong Kataang has it’s mature moments; such as the moments mentioned in the paragraph below. I don’t think a ship has to be complex and elaborate to be a good ship. Kataang has a sort of a simple charm; everything just sort of fell into place and it happened very gradually, naturally, and realistically too.

I also feel like there was way еще time put into Kataang. Their relationship was budding from the beginning but didn't really start until season 3. In the pilot he wakes up and the first thing he wants to do is go пингвин sledding, he doesn't care about the cute girl looming over him...not in that way anyhow. If it was rushed then he probably would have...

Another burning sensation fired its way, white-hot, up and down Azula’s body. It was as if she’d accidently set her own body aflame. She clutched her blankets tightly and bit her cheek, so not to cry out.

Her skin felt moist and clammy, her strength seeming to trickle out with each bead of sweat—leaving her with a contradicting cold sensation. A feeling of emptiness, as if her own flame was flickering out. Slowly and agonizingly.

Despite her best efforts, a small whimper slid through her parted lips.

It didn’t matter.

No one was around to hear it.

She couldn’t risk the company. All of the others had been taken away. Shipped to an island some ways away from the огонь Nation mainland. The island of the sick…the diseased.
Rich and poor alike, they were removed from their homes and whisked away from their old lives.
Quarantined.

The recently created council justified it by declaring as state of public emergency…world-wide public emergency. And apocalypse of sorts.

Apparently today is Avatar's 10th anniversary...here have a fic!

In one год a person could accomplish much.
She had chosen to run away
Run away and not be found.

In two she mostly just stood alone.
Living only off of what the land would give her.
On most nights she was lonely.

The other three years became something of a blur as she counted them off. Everything seemed to be the same old thing. She didn’t know how she’d managed to go for five years all by herself in such a strange place.

She decided after those five years she was tired of being alone, hungry, and silently afraid. Decided that maybe five years was long enough for them to forget her face…and everything else she’d done. Perhaps she could make something of herself.

Something new.

Something different.

On год five she left her makeshift Главная in the Forgetful Valley.
Her cloths were tattered.

She watched the girl, Xul, crumble for days. She was only 16. There wasn’t really much she could do aside from holding her close and telling her that it would pass eventually.

It was a rough job really, the job she did, trying to help those suffering from what everyone else called the ‘the insanity’ they were “crazy”, “sick”, “unlovable”. She much preferred to call to think of them as those who just needed someone to tell them are cared about…loved. A good number of her patients were in a state of distress pretty much all the time, Xul was one of them. These patients (young and old) were usually abandoned, she’d never let Xul fall into this category.

Despite it all, a lot of these people had made astounding recoveries under her care. Though a few of them were what she called ‘the regulars’—those who’d recover and then relapse and come back for further help. She welcomed them back with just as much care—if not more—as the first time.

Currently, Xul screamed at Azula telling that she didn’t know anything…and that she didn’t understand what she was going through. She would kick and holler, thrust and...
