The rewrite of my collection from 2016 is finally complete! I’m glad I revisited it again and did it more justice this time around :)
Thanks @silima and @cuteniarose for your support of my Ming’Li shenanigans, and for your wonderful art, it served as an inspiration when I wasn’t sure if I should finish this :) also credits to @lilyliv3rs for Red Lotus PTSD hadcanons
features: tension so thick you could cut it with a lava disk, a shitload of trauma, reckless decisions, canon polyamory

(Her expression is based off when I accidentally glanced at the mirror in my room after pulling an all nighter to finish a chemistry project)
(No we didn’t get graded on this which sucks cause I love it)

We needed Legend of Korra to have 24 episodes every book. I don’t think Korra would’ve been hated on as much as she was before. The rest of Korra’s friends could have had better stories and we could see Asami show how her mothers death affected her or more information on Mako and Bolin’s parents and other street kids too. A look into the past with Aangs kids and how they felt being overshadowed by Tenzin. And how Tenzin felt about being the last of his people when Aang died and it was only him and baby Korra.

Aiwei intentionally distracting (& weakening) Lin
I just realized while rewatching, that Aiwei‘s intentions to convince Lin to stop working and have the acupuncture, might have been solely in his own interest to stop her from inspecting the security system. Here‘s why:
As Suyins adviser and truth seer he must have known, that Lin Beifong is the kind of person who would search through the entire city to make sure the Avatar is safe
She is a very good detective and who knows what a day snooping around would lead to, maybe she could have figured out Aiweis connection to the red lotus even before they planned on attacking Zaofu, maybe Zaheer already send word or Aiwei send word himself, that the Avatar was in the city
Lin is the only person in Zaofu briefed about the red lotus, being send to protect the Avatar by no other than Lord Zuko himself
the unsolved conflict with Su is already weighing heavy on her, he probably thought it was his best chance to use that against her after she refused to accept that she was not on work duty
he knows what the acupuncture appointment would do to Lin, sending her there to weaken and distract her before she could even start investigating the city and by extension himself
Su has a knack for giving (criminals) people a second chance without asking questions, but Lin doesn‘t. He either was there or surely must have heard about her reaction to the knews of seeing Varrick and Zhu Li and her outburst afterwards.
She doesn‘t trust easily, but he knows when she is lying, so he can manipulate her into thinking it‘s the best thing for her to have that acupuncture, not his own benifit
(maybe he even drugged her somehow, mixing something in the water in her guest house, which could explain her intense physical reaction or is that too crazy?)
and it works, with all her pent up feelings, Lin has enough to deal with instead of busying herself with securing the city
after the acupuncture & her fight with Sue, she sleeps for 16 HOURS, so whatever Aiwei planned & did, he had enough time to do everything without Lin getting suspicious because she was literally asleep for most of it
