100% totally 100% disagree nope. the whole damn point is that aang refused to compromise on his beliefs and values, to uphold the values of his culture that was destroyed by genocide and death on a mass scale. avatar yangchen did not have the same experience and perspective that aang did about death, and ending a war of mass death with one more death would have been symbolically a really shitty ending. aang did not “run from his problem,” he faced ozai head on, determined to end the conflict on his own terms and in his own way. running away would have been choosing the easy route of killing him, which would have been ridiculously easy while in the avatar state. aang didn’t know how he was going to defeat the fire lord, even after the lion turtle helped him. the ENTIRE POINT was that he trusted in himself and the teachings of his dead culture and that is one of the most inspiring things ever to me??
compromising what you see as the moral choice for “the greater good” is shit that dumbledore does. not aang.

As “The Legend of Korra” gears up for its return with Book 3 “Change,” fans should keep their eyes peeled as the Nickelodeon prepare for the upfront on March 13.
Opening page of The Rift: Part One. This comic will be released to comic book stores on March 5th. Preorder on amazon.
My previous 8 page preview post of this comic (x)
Okay but Katara’s outfit though
Erm, I don’t think so. While there is certainly gender politics in this fandom (what fandom doesn’t have that tbh), the fact Korra is a woman doesn’t really shape my opinion that much. I’m aware of what a massive step it is to have a WoC as a main character, but I don’t think people have really been holding back against LOK just because Korra’s a girl.
Besides, I don’t think people are that angry at the character Korra. My apathy and disappointment in this show originates from writing choices not the actual characters.
Okay this will be the last photoset of today! haha!
Shirtless Tenzin it is. I think these snapshots prove the theory that shirtless Tenzin was younger wrong. (It could still be a flashback… maybe he aged really fast but remained the same for a number of years?? haha little far fetched)
I might be uploading a HQ version of the trailer sometime tommorrow. Good luck speculating avatards!
No, LOK has not been entertaining for me at all. Book 2 had its moments. I liked individual characters and scenes. But the direction the series is going in and the way Bryke write plot arcs now just isn’t my cup of tea.
I really love that quote from the movie Side Effects which was “past behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviour.” That to me sums up my attitude towards LOK now. I don’t really trust it get better. Its been 26 episodes now and I’m not enjoying it.
I will keep up with it. I do enjoy running this blog and chatting with you guys, but following LOK and investing time into the series won’t be top of my agenda.
This is a close up of the dragon in the new tlok trailer. Could that person riding the dragon be Zuko?
The Legend of Korra: Book 3 - Change: Short trailer including both Book 2 & Book 3 clips!
Maybe this is why Kya and Bumi didn’t have the fondest memories of their childhood.
Someone take photoshop away from me.
