Katara, trying to heal Zuko after the final Agni Kai: Can you rate your pain for me?
Zuko: [barely breathing] Zero stars
Zuko: Would not recommend?
It’s hard for me to put into words how much the stories of Weiss Schnee and Zuko mean to me tbh
It’s the “I was not born guilty of your crimes!” the “I’ve learned everything, and I’ve had to do it all on my own!” It’s the This 👏Life👏Is👏Mine👏,“My mind and heart are one” and the wanting to do everything possible not to let the ideology and unjust situation you were born into continue on after you
I just really look up to them both and they both mean a lot to me
Breaking; things heat up at fire nation royal palace after young lord Zuko responds to accusations that newly passed law will make “his forefathers turn in their graves” with “sure hope it does”, more updates in 10
I just realized, Zuko was the only person around to witness Zhao’s demise
I’m imagining like the gaang is just hanging around the fire a few days before Sozin’s Comet just
Sokka: “We’re really going after the Fire Nation again so soon after the Day of Black Sun… They’ll be far more prepared this time too, I bet. I wonder who they’ll send after us…”
Katara: “Probably Azula. She’s already found us once since the Day of Black Sun.”
Toph: “Maybe the Fire Lord himself? That would at least make things easier for us.”
Sokka: “No that would be too convenient. They’d send someone else. Possibly Zhao. We haven’t seen him in a while.”
Aang: “You’re right. Not since the North Pole.”
Katara: “That is kind of strange, actually, considering how good he was at tracking us up to that point. Do you think something hap–”
Zuko: “Fish ate him.”
Zuko: “Fish spirit ate him.”
Toph: “Fish what”
Zuko: “Spirit. Ate him. Didn’t wanna take my hand.”
Aang: “…………….The OCEAN SPIRIT ATE HIM?”
Zuko: “Actually I don’t wanna talk about it.”
I love these tags.
Does Toph know about the whole Aang-turning-into-a-giant-ocean-fish-spirit thing? Did anyone tell her?
The Gaang play a game where they all sit on sand or something else that confuses Toph’s senses and tell her wild adventures from before they met and she has to guess which ones are true.
They also do this with Zuko, because it’s fun to watch him realise that for all the places he tracked them to, they were usually only there for bonkers reasons.
Rebloging for that last addition~
the most iconic moment of television history is Hurley throwing the hot pocket at Ben dont @ me
shhh give her a moment.
Zuko redirecting lightning (for the first time!!!!) at his sorry excuse for a father after going off on a 10 minute rant about what an ugly abusive piece of shit he was and how he’s going to do everything in his power to help the avatar defeat him

Have my niche meme that probably only applies to me
i love it when people like “omg [story] copied [other story]” and then list the steps of the heroes journey
whenever they go on missions they have to pair off, right? safety in numbers and you should always have someone watching your back and protocols and strategies that allison has known inside out since she was four. and klaus can go with diego so that diego can keep an eye on him because he never pays attention in any of their combat training lessons. and ben and luther can handle the up close combat best because they get on pretty well and they’re the sturdiest. and five and allison don’t exactly choose to stick together but they’re always the last two. it makes sense because they’re both well-suited to waltzing in and out of active combat like it’s a particularly boring parlour game. and they always were the snarkiest siblings, so of course they’d end up walking away with a couple of inside jokes, it’s not anything big, really.
and they’re not close because everyone knows that vanya is five’s favourite and allison spend as much of her non-mission time as possible with luther. but on the way back from missions klaus will be miles away and five will be checking on ben and allison will be trying not to think about the weird faces people make when she rumours them into shooting themselves and pretending she’s fine because of the cameras. and as soon as they get in the car ben will fall asleep on five’s shoulder and klaus will start smoking and then, once the dust has settled and ben’s definitely out, luther and diego will start fighting.
and when luther and diego start fighting it’s always over something stupid so five and allison will glance at each other sideways and smirk to themselves out of their respective windows and it’s a tiny thing but it’s every time diego and luther fight. it’s a feeling of freedom, knowing that they’re together above dad’s stupid ranking, that he can’t control them in quite the same way as he can the others. (he can still control them, of course, childhoohd wouldn’t be childhood without terror, but.) but they’re still not close. it doesn’t count. it’s just little things. inside jokes and sideways glances and five thinking to grab her a water bottle from a broken vending machine because he knows how many rumours end in a migraine and allison knowing when to slip him a stolen granola bar so he doesn’t pass out and get all grumpy when he wakes up.
except then five disappears.
(he doesn’t die. they don’t die, they’re superheroes. allison would know if he was dead. she would.)
five disappears, and allison starts to realise how much little things add up.
because she doesn’t miss five the way that ben and vanya do. her grief isn’t a huge gaping chasm that feels completely inescapable. it doesn’t consume her the way it does vanya, who leaks sorrow onto everything she touches, from her violin to her sandwiches. it doesn’t mute her the way it does ben, who vanishes away into himself and his books more and more as time goes on and five doesn’t come back.
her grief is not the anger in diego, or the helplessness in luther, or the outright (selfish) terror in klaus.
her grief is a thousand tiny papercuts that pile on with every argument between one and two, when she glances over to an empty space and finds herself missing a smirking partner. it cuts into her the first time she laughs alone at a generic white mug, when diego asks what she means by “apple teeth”, when there is only confusion at her henchman walk. her grief hangs in the background of her life, unnoticeable until she looks over to the empty spot in the line up and remembers.
five and allison were never close, but she misses him like they were.
