am i the only one who is pretty sure this is a water bending move?

I’m a firm believer that the best benders are those who look beyond their own element’s bending techniques and discover new ways of bending. Look at Toph, she bends completely differently from other earthbenders, and she’s one of the most powerful benders in the world. Look at Iroh, he devised lightning redirection from waterbending. This just shows that Zuko is a great firebender.

I think it probably has more to do with the way Zuko changed from the beginning to the end of the story. Each bending art is modeled after a martial art that closely mimics the element. Perhaps Zuko’s change in bending style is supposed to represent how his once fiery spirit had become more tranquil like a water bender’s.

this move directly copies the one Katara used on him in Siege of the North 2 when she pummeled him with a snowball. This scene here is after the Bitter Work episode where Iroh teaches Zuko how to redirect lightning using a Waterbending technique AND instructs him in the value of learning from the other nations. So the fact that here Zuko is using a water bending movie that his adversary used on him last season shows that he’s listening to his Uncle’s advice and hints at the beginning of his redemption arc. basically this 2 second clip is another example of why this show is brilliant and everyone should watch it.

    3. So it was really foggy last night, the kind of fog that pushes up against your windows and begs for you to come outside. I didn’t quite make it there, but I at least wrote something. It isn’t really a story, it isn’t really anything, so I think I’m safe from using it for any submissions. i think it can only really find any life here, so if’n you’re interested it’s below the cut.

    4. so like, are we just not getting the rest of Korra ever for the foreseeable future? Or is this like, an imposed hiatus?

      You're turning into a pretty wise Avatar after all.

      I loved this, it was like korra was parodying herself a bit here, like yeah I know I’m not the best avatar but I’m starting to come to terms with that 

    7. like the whole his dark materials thing in general is just. pretty weird and preachy and just not a good way to talk to kids at all. I know it’s like the anti narnia but really it’s exactly the same

    8. although let’s be real percy jackson and unfortunate events are the only good books there. I loved eragon and the northern lights when I read them but those. those are some bad books

THIS IS WHAT A WORLD LEADER LOOKS LIKE.

"I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place," Archbishop Tutu said at the launch of the Free and Equal campaign in Cape Town.
"I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this."
Archbishop Tutu said the campaign against homophobia was similar to the campaign waged against racism in South Africa.
"I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level," he added.

    p.s I have a 'feel things' tag that you can look it if'n you're feeling down or just empty. I quite like it.
