Whatever decision you make, I’ll trust that it’s the right one. I’ll support you. Even if it means you have to fulfill your promise. Even it if means we have to be apart.
Snowy; ENTP; they/them
I should come with a warning label.
For you to treat our tattoos like a part of some costume…! My culture isn’t a game!
Gene Yang has done a lot of very strange/generally incorrect things with The Promise, but this is something I’m glad to say he got very right. Culture isn’t a costume, and wearing traditional dress or images from an unaffiliated culture simply because you’re a “fan” is inappropriate.
This is how I feel every time I see bindis included in magazine spreads, or decorating the foreheads of celebrities and schoolgirls. It gets taken up by fashion and becomes “cool”…as long as it’s not being worn by my mother or my grandmother or, for that matter, me. I’m not cool when I wear a bindi—a real one, the red, thumbprint-sized one. I’m ‘ultra-Indian’. I’m conservative, traditional, demure. I am all the stereotypes that the West has ever imposed on Indian women. I’m not fashionable or modern or admired.
Tread lightly where other peoples’ cultures are concerned. There are ways to appreciate them without appropriating.
Dang, Avatar! Doing it very right!
and you’re all completely ignoring the important part
Iroh invented bubble tea
is iroh dead
did they just kill iroh

LALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU
WHY JUST WHY
HOLD THE FUCK UP
Ok but it doesn’t sound like he’s dead at all?
guys he’s in the end of the comic
TUMBLR STOP ERASING ANSWERS STOP THIS SHIT
Okay two other anons asked this also so answering publicly
She said something along the lines of it being okay for them to break up if necessary:
“Go find a quiet place, Aang, and figure this out. Then, whatever decision you make…I’ll trust that it’s the right one. I’ll support you. Even if it means you have to fulfill your promise. And even if it means we have to be apart.”
Gene Yang never explicitly states that they stay together, but it is implied, I think. This part actually bothered me A LOT and patience pending I’m going to do a longer write-up about it. But. Yeah. That happened.
so wait, did Roku ever get back as Aang’s spirit guide? what happened?
it looks like Aang split with Roku as his spirit guide
grossness with Azula at the end, as most people already know
Iroh invented bubble tea
oh lord, what happened? is this the katara imagining a family panel??
YES I DIDNT EXPECT IT AT ALL IT JUST CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE WITH MY OWN FUCKING FEELINGS AND THEN THEY KISSED RIGHT ON THE NEXT PAGE AND OH MY GOD I’M DEAD I’M DEAD I’M GONE THAT’S IT IM DONE CHECKED OUT FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT
HOW DO YOU NOT NOTICE A TANK
Okay so to paraphrase Aang says that the nations have to be separate to maintain harmony because the stronger nation would always crush/mock the weaker one
And when Katara brings up Guru Pathik Aang is like “but I don’t want them to be the same” which is reasonable but
I don’t know I feel like this entire exchange is just poorly worded and could have been resolved with more adequate communication
I don’t know
I don’t know what just happened
OH THAnk GOD AAN G CALLS THEM ON THEIR SHIT ON THE NEXT PAG e .
