Just whatever random thoughts that I get. A lot of it is media stuff, and there's a little social justice but not near enough for me to feel like I'm doing my part but I'm working on that! Also sometimes I feel depressed so there will be angst-filled posts as well sorry. I tend to go through stages with stuff, obsessing over it and then ignoring it for a while so deal with it. And um thanks for stopping by I guess?

warriors of kyoshi
suki says “we use our opponent’s force and strength against them”
which i think is a very airbender thing to say for being from (1) a native earthbending avatar who (2) doesn’t take shit
so i have a headcanon now that kyoshi started the kyoshi warriors as like a self-defense thing for the gals because not everyone is lucky enough to be built like her and then realized they were better at fighting than anyone else on the island so was like “okay you guys are in charge now”
belle used to be some kind of soldier
she’s way too accepting of having to pick more lives over those of someone she (somewhat grudgingly) cares about, like she’s been through this before
man little me (8-13ish) was really oblivious
I WOULD COMPLETELY IGNORE STATED PRONOUNS IN GAMES (although sometimes I prefer my read-in because damn my mind was sort of automatically slightly inclusive for being a kid with no idea of gender identity stuff?)
like, just going through Chrono Cross, I thought:
Van was a girl
Sprigg was a guy
Grobyc was a girl who presented male due to a programming glitch
Nikki was a flat-chested girl cross-crossdressing because Miki had issues with overeager fans and Nikki posed as her boyfriend
Pierre was a boy that got spelled into a girl’s body and was actually enjoying acting extra flamboyant to go along with the new looks
Pip was agender and developed traits based on which evolution route you gave them
i mean srsly where did I come up with these? And now I kinda want fic for Nikki and Grobyc (although Grobyc’s would probs be really really angsty)
They could only bend whatever they were born into. Then, the second one could do what the first could plus their own element, and so on for each of the first four.
Just because each Avatar is stronger than the last because they draw on their past lives; the first ones could only develop the skills as the Avatar spirit learned them over multiple lifetimes.
In a position of her child would be an heir, but not a position of her own power. She would’ve been around, but she also died in childbirth.
William did love her and only had concubines so that he could produce an heir. He would’ve married her, except it was a choice between being married to one woman who might not be able to give birth or having multiple concubines that would almost guarantee an heir if the issue wasn’t himself.
He made a judgment call for the good of the kingdom, and after Odette’s mother died he gave the rest a proper amount of money/land and let them go to their own lives. He had a child, he didn’t want to keep being with women he didn’t love.
I guess it just didn’t occur to them! D:
They never specify but I theorize that they do since earthbending would make that super easy
Ororor! Toph or someone in the Gaang or even Toph’s kids (if she had multiple ones) invented braille or some equivalent! Because they found a book that they absolutely wanted to share with her but didn’t have enough time to read it aloud to her.
Only when they were in private areas, though.
She started hiding everything even from them when Zuko was banished.
She was planning on sneaking out to the ship. However, Azula gave her false information about when the ship would leave.
Ty Lee saw how manipulative Azula was then, and chose that day to run off to the circus.
She spent a few weeks working with Bumi to develop a new technique that would turn any (Earth)bendable material into a compass for more of that material.
When they’d perfected it, she went to Sokka and used her meteorite bracelet to try and find the sword.
Unfortunately, the sword itself was too small for her bracelet to pick up on.
Fortunately, they found a few buried meteorites that he could use for raw material to make a new one (and a few extras).
He would just let them work to the point where he wouldn’t need complete bedrest to finish recovering.
After going through the war, he knew that pain was an essential part of life experience. That, and the relaxed pace he would have to take while finishing recovering was a nice reminder of what sort of life he’d fought for everyone to have.
This is a philosophy that he at least tried to teach everyone else, no matter how he met them.
At least after what happened in “The Runaway”.
So unless the only way to clear up his chi is by unleashing another blast and taking the damage, it makes NO SENSE for him to have tried another blast at the Western Air Temple….
So I guess he tried to do a smaller blast, misguessed, and blew himself up.
Oma and Shu didn’t meet on top of the mountain. He was a spy sent to her village, and she was the only one who ran into him in the middle of the night. See, she was blind, thanks to a misunderstanding about macahoni berries while her mother was pregnant. Not only did the berries make her mother blind, but they affected her as well, and she bore a branch of them at all times as a way to remind people to be careful. She took strolls at midnight so as to trouble fewer people, which was why she was out then.
Shu didn’t know how valuable she might be to her village, so he decided to take her hostage. Convincing her that he was someone very important from her village and that he could use her ears for an important task, he got her all the way up the mountain before she realized something he was from the other village.
She started fighting him then, and in the middle of their tussle, they both had some sort of epiphany- Shu realized that he was being a horrible person by taking advantage of her, and Oma realized that he was the only person who hadn’t exactly treated her as a pariah right off. For the first time while out of the house in she didn’t know how long, she threw away her branch of berries. Before she knew it, she’d spilled her entire story to him.
The two continued meeting after that, carefully, and one day when they ran into a Badgermole, they realized they might be able to do something amazing. The rest of the story is like the episode tells, except that Oma wound up with one last reminder of her lover a few months later.
Centuries after that, one of Oma and Shu’s descendants would also be born blind, and would learn directly from Badgermoles and then invent a new type of Earthbending.
All of the tunnels except for the true one, anyways. Badgermoles, being the creators of a Bending style, had a higher level of intelligence than most animals (even for Avatar!verse) and so the descendants of those first ones kept up the skill.
This explains why Sokka kept getting lost, even with a map. The tunnels were changing!
EDIT: They say it is the Badgermoles the show… But I’m keeping the trained part as my headcanon!
But by one of the Avatars slipping up in front of Koh. When Koh takes their face, he also “accidentally” takes some of their essence, and it just happens to be the part that guides the reincarnation.
Except, every now and then, Sokka would head to the North Pole. Suki never really tracked it- he didn’t tell her about these trips except that he was leaving, and she chose not to pry- but every one of those trips took place during a solstice. Sometimes he would skip it in the summer, but every winter he would head up to the North Pole.
He would spend three days at the Spirit Oasis, meditating, hoping to talk with Yue. The day before the solstice, he would always hear something that he couldn’t place. The day of, sometimes, he would actually see her. She would talk with him for just a few minutes, as that would be all he could manage. The longest talk they ever had was for an hour, and that was when he was very old and very much more in control of himself than in his younger years. The day after the solstice, sometimes he would see her image in the moon’s reflection on the water, and then he would be reminded that he shouldn’t clutch onto the past for too long at a time and return home to his family.
Yue and Sokka shared a first love with each other, and neither of them forgot that, even if they had to let their emotions settle into a distant friendship. Still, she was there to hear him fret about his nerves at being a father, when he was worried that he wasn’t good enough for Suki, when he first felt his joints stiffening with age and was so desperate not to stop being a warrior. Yue treasured these moments, her last fully mortal connection to the world, and would often revisit them even centuries after Sokka died.
