Okay, so I want to spill the tea about Jet as an episode and Jet as a character. Yes. I am going to write about the amazing world of Avatar The Last Airbender. I am going to be quite extensive and bring up a lot of things.
So. What I have seen is that most of the people don't like Jet. The reasons are unknown. Jet in fact is really similar to one of the fanbase's favorite characters-Zuko. They both have obsessions caused by war. Zuko's is about capturing the avatar and Jet's is about fighting the Fire Nation. They both have their reasons. Zuko was pushed to this when he was banished and Jet when his home and family were destroyed by not anything else, but the Fire Nation-and that's exactly why he hates them so much. He has done a lot of good things. As we know he has helped Freedom Fighters and made some sort of home they were all missing. Unfortunately, his ideology has gone too far and like Sokka has said "you became a traitor when you stopped protecting innocent people". It's really sad for me that this happened to him. Of course, he is not fully blessed only because he had a rough childhood-nobody is. But if you think about it-Zuko (yes, I'm coming back to him) also has done a lot of bad things and also was kinda forced to it. However, Zuko had his uncle-and as we know from Azula's example one supporting adult in the life of a lost teenager is really a lot. Jet didn't have it. He was also trying to redeem himself-just like Zuko. He wanted to find new life in Ba Sing Se-just like Zuko. Unfortunately, his obsession with the Fire Nation destroyed him-again. Zuko was really close to this state-when he saw posters with Appa something broke down in him. But still, he had his wise uncle who helped him-something Jet also still didn't have. Here I want to appreciate Smellerbee and Longshot. They were really good friends and supporters. They were looking for Jet and were trying to help him as much as they could and never left his side-till the end. But it turned out that it wasn't enough. What I want people to remember is that he DIED (or something, I don't know it was really unclear) for gaang, so please don't be too hard on him. He is not my favorite person in this universe, but he definitely didn't deserve what happened to him.
Here goes the more fun part. Episode.
Actually, I like this episode. It gives characters a few important lessons while being hilarious. Especially the beginning. Let's start with Katara. I love how she is teasing Sokka about being "leader" (while with a dreamy face telling him that Aang's the leader) and about kissing gran gran. And people say she doesn't have a sense of humor-she has! She is the best Sokka's teaser. And Later. This thing about Sokka's instincts-precious!! Later we have Jet. This can be the problem people have with him. Katara had feelings for him. It was clear from the beginning. But to her defense-she was 14 and here is a tall, older, pretty handsome warrior who is lifting her of the ground to his own treehouse where he is the real leader. Come on. In her tribe there weren't even boys in her age except for her brother! Jet helped her realize that appearance is not everything and that you can't trust people so easily because they can lie to you, while you're so innocently believing. It also shows part of Katara's character. She is trusting people easily, but when someone fails her trust, it's really hard to gain it again. And another parallel between Jet and Zuko. Both of them gained her trust at first (after Zuko's try to change his life), then destroyed it and later were trying to gain it again, which wasn't an easy challenge. It's part of her and people should have expected her lack of easy trust for Zuko in 3 season instead of being hard on her especially considering that Zuko's faults were much bigger and had bigger consequences. One last thing in this episode that I want to mention is Katara giving her handmade hat (at first made for Jet) to Aang and he is wearing it and looking absolutely adorable.
Oh, so we are at Aang now. It's not a lot about him in this episode. He is making fun of Sokka along with Katara (the best thing EVER) and later just like her, he trusts Jet. Later he is a bit hurt (he considered Jet as a new friend), but not that much like Katara. What is odd here is the lack of his jealousness for Katara liking Jet. BUT what we can see 1.5 seasons later is that at their next encounter he is jealous. That means feelings development (and realization of them) and I love this small detail. Also, Katara is definitely against him and she is ashamed of her previous self. One more thing from Aang is connected with Sokka so...
Sokka being bashed the whole episode to end it like a boss. And by that, I mean all absolutely hilarious teasing and fun-making. He needs to deal with his younger sister and their 12-year-old friend. Just sending respect for this boy. But coming back to the topic. He's right about Appa being big and easy to spot. And my favorite thing in this episode (and also the reason why I am writing it) is Sokka talking about Appa's big arrow on his forehead and Aang saying after Appa's groan "Sokka's just jealous because he doesn't have an arrow". Ahhh how to not love this boy. And now I want my arrow. Sokka is underappreciated in this episode and is telling a lot of important things. Instead of being mean to Jet, he told him where he was mistaken and I love him for this. This time he was right about the boy who he called Katara's boyfriend (last time he was obviously wrong).
Yeah. I think that's all I wanted to say. I love them all. If somebody is ever going to read it. Wow. Hope you're having a great time!

Kyoshi’s first time airbending 😩. I’ve been working on some longer animatics that are taking a while to finish, so here’s a small cute one in the meantime 👭. Experimenting with a different brush and bit of 3D parallaxing. * #kyoshi #theriseofkyoshi #rangi #gay #gayanime #avatar #avatarthelastairbender #storyboards #animatic #art #ATLA #animation #shadwofkyoshi https://www.instagram.com/p/CNsFsB0DMH9/?igshid=cf9gf3t0474q

I have been thinking about the times they couldnt even get a break, and i settled in Toph to try and represent that.
This is Yesterdays piece, i didnt get to post it cuz i was tired from cleaning, sue me. It took me a while for me to decide how to do it, this was also intended to be the piece for one of the request i asked for in instagram like,,,, 5 months ago?? im so sorry i cant even carry my soul.
I dont completly love it but my art skills arent that up there yet, i wanted to add lighthing but idk how and i dunno if Toph looks a little out of place with all the painted rocks around her, but i also didnt know how to solve that so,,, i might come back to it later when i understand how art works, but for now i think is pretty nice.
