I’m sorry, but if you look at these photos and think it is appropriate for these two people to be together romantically, you have some serious issues.

I headcanon that Zutara’s first date would be a disaster, but in a good way.
Zuko is a hopeless romantic, of course, and plans everything out in advance because he wants it to be a great first impression. But then, random circumstances pop up that mess with everything he wanted to do. It’s a bit of an adventure, but ultimately Katara still has a great time navigating all the weird challenges with him and watching him get flustered.
Even though nothing goes according to plan, it’s still a great time and endears Zuko to Katara. It also makes a hilarious story to tell their friends and family.

Thank you for answering my question! I was actually referring to the end of the episode, when the hippie is singing once everyone is free from the cave? She blushes at the end of the song and I just noticed it now :)
Oh, okay. I didn't remember that, either, but looking at screenshots and the transcript, I think it's worth noting that Sokka also blushes when the hippie guy is talking about love and hugs him.
Tumblr media
Does Sokka have romantic feelings for this man? No, but it is an embarrassingly intimate situation, the nomads sing about love, then Aang glances at Katara
Tumblr media
And that's when Katara blushes.
Tumblr media
Which, okay, I mean, they DID kiss. It would be weird if she didn't have any sort of feelings about it. Which is what I said before, that a big problem with their relationship is that the show never resolves these feelings by having them talk honestly to each other about them. Aang glancing at her is acknowledging what happened, which kind of puts her on the spot so she'd probably blush regardless of how she feels, just like Sokka blushed when the dude suddenly hugged him. But it was Aang who facilitated that interaction and Katara's blush can easily be read as embarrassment.
And then they never talk about it.
The only time they talk about their relationship is when Aang accuses Katara during Ember Island Players and demands to know why she isn't his girlfriend. And like, Aang wants to know why she hasn't gotten the message when this is the very reason why she hasn't. Because relationships don't happen out of thin air. You actually have to talk to the other person.
And I know, I know. I know why they do this. But this is literally why a lot of people react badly to KA. The idea that a girl kissing you or blushing or even expressing feelings for you gives you ownership over them is incredibly troubling. The idea that girls are expected to just throw themselves at boys and if they don't, it must be her fault, is gross meninist logic.
The other problem is that the Cave of Two Lovers scenario can be replaced with any two characters and everything would be exactly the same. They would still find the story of Oma and Shu, figure out that they need to "trust in love" to escape and might come to the same conclusion, that they need to kiss. They would still be embarrassed about it. They would still blush afterwards. Obviously it was Aang and Katara because the narrative wanted it to be, but it's a contrived way of getting these two characters to kiss and highlights the narrative problem of the show not knowing how to develop Aang and Katara's romance organically.
Add to that that the Oma and Shu symbolism seems to point to Zuko - not only with how zutara parallels with Oma and Shu and the framing of the catacombs scene in such a way that it is nearly identical, right down to the interrupted moment of intimacy, but also the fact that in this episode, Zuko has a moment with Song, a girl from the opposite side of the war - then it's not surprising that many people came away with the idea that maybe Katara should be kissing Zuko instead.

Zuko: Katara fell asleep on my shoulder today and kissed my cheek when she woke up. She’s so amazing. I wish she loved me.
Katara: *staring blankly at their marriage necklaces wondering how long it’s been since her husband slept*

Anti-Zutarians: Zutara is toxic!!!!
Zuko: goes out of his way to make amends with Katara, supports her decisions, respects her boundaries, and literally takes a bolt of lightning for her.
Anti-Zutarians: Zutara is toxic because they’d fight all the time.
Me: and Maiko wouldn’t?

Just an Observation
It's interesting to me that certain parts of the ATLA fandom will accuse Zutara shippers of being toxic because we don't like certain characters and are vocal about it, but those same accusers will use our dislike of characters to attack us, real live people, because we have different opinions of fictional characters. It wouldn't be so bad if they were actually interesting, but they jump right to these incoherent tirades full of personal and confused insults. I can't even properly snark at these people because I can't decipher what they're saying.
To be clear, I'm not saying everyone in...that camp are unhinged, obnoxious trolls hiding behind the Anon button to hurl personal insults at people they don't know, but it's interesting to me that when I hear people complaining about Zutara fans, it's usually about our opinions about their favorite characters, but when Zutara fans complain about other pockets, it's usually personal attacks we've suffered.

Title: Between Heartbeats
Authors: SouthSideStory & MayimOr
Chapter: 1/14
Rating: Explicit
Ship: Katara/Zuko
Archive Warning: Underage
Additional Tags: Enemies With Benefits, Canon Divergent, Blutara, yet another Ba Sing Se smutfic, yes they're all aged up, character development disguised as sex, background Sokka/Suki, future Toph/Aang if you squint.
Summary: The walls of Ba Sing Se aren't half as high as those around a girl's heart.
Katara never thought she'd lie to her friends or treat a lover coldly. But then, she didn't anticipate Zuko coming to this city of secrets and doing what he does best: turning her life upside down.
At least she doesn't have to worry about this affair lasting long. He may want her—he may even care for her—but not enough to change.
Besides, catching is what Zuko is so good at. Keeping, not so much. .
For so long, Katara's whole life has been contained, ready to pick up and go at a moment’s notice. Now that they’re settled down again she could unpack, but it’s hard to shake the fear that they’ll have to run as soon as she does.
Not least because Zuko chased them to the ends of the earth. Always popping up when he was least expected—and least wanted.
Katara can’t help wondering where their banished prince has ended up. If his uncle is all right. If he’s staying out of his sister’s line of fire. Zuko is nothing if not unlucky, and the last time she saw him he looked in dire need of a decent meal (or ten).
She has too much to worry about to add Zuko to the list. Even if she had time to care about him, he doesn’t deserve it.
Katara holds the spirit oasis water tightly in her pocket. No matter what happens, she has some kind of power. The ability to change things, even if their world gets dark. She tells herself that every morning when she wakes, and most of the time she believes it.

I just venture into the Anti Zutara verse and is incredible because is just people hating on Zutara fans, not the ship itself, with arguments like I see in the Anti Keteeng verse. Nope. They are just being extremely toxic against real people. Even saying that if we don't like Keteeng we should watch another show, because apparently they own the show now and dictate who can or cannot watch it and have opinions about it. 🙄
Btw, I saw a comment hating on you and I just wanna say that you're amazing and don't let this kind of shit get to you. Haters gonna hate. Be safe.
Thanks. Apparently some people consider me a "BNF" and I think that's part of it, but that's weird to me because I've only been here for a year and a half and barely follow any ATLA blogs. I just created this blog as a place to put my ATLA stuff because I didn't really want minors following me on my other blog.
And yeah, the thing about anti zutara stuff vs anti KA and MZ is that posts that are anti the canon ships are commenting on and analyzing what is in the show. Whereas with zutara, it's all fanon so any attempts to "debunk" is just commenting on people's headcanons, which is always gonna make you look like a jerk.
Something I've heard someone else say that has always stuck with me on fandom is that you should try to avoid having opinions about other people's opinions, because that's always what leads to fights. So when I try to make my posts commenting on the canon ships, I try to comment on what's already in the show instead of other people's interpretations of it. I know I don't always succeed, but that's always my goal.
When I first got into the fandom, I was immediately turned off by the zutara hate not just because I already shipped it, but because a lot of it is twisting the narrative in order to disprove something that is fanon to begin with so if you start reading this posts knowing nothing about the fandom, like I did, it looks a lot like these people are tilting at windmills. Like, not only is there no real point, but literally no fanon shipper needs or wants to hear why you think their headcanons are wrong.
If people do know me from my personal they probably know that I'm always pro-shipping. I use anti tags mostly to avoid arguments when I criticize the canon ships, but my point is never to criticize shippers. I could care less what people ship. Really. Which is why I was genuinely surprised when some people got angry when I said I wouldn't make or support callout posts for people not shipping zutara in the "correct" way. Or why I gently ignore it when people send me asks after I reblog from certain bloggers to "warn" me that so-and-so ships x, y, or z unacceptable ship (usually azulaang or zucest). I know. I do not care. Which is not to say that there aren't certain ships and certain dynamics that bother me immensely. But I don't go out of my way to attack those shippers because I can't actually make a judgement about why someone ships something, especially if the ship itself is fanon.
Which, before anyone jumps on me, isn't to say I think anything goes or that there aren't valid criticisms to be made, especially since ATLA does touch on so many sensitive issues. But I agree, saying people shouldn't watch the show if they have different interpretations or are critical of some aspects of it is gatekeeping and toxic positivity. James Baldwin said "it's because I love America that I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually," and of course he was talking about things much bigger than fandom, but the same lesson still applies, which is that you should immediately question anyone or anything, any system that puts itself forth as above reproach to the point where criticism is pathologized. I made a shitpost recently about canon shippers saying that "postmodernism was a mistake," but like, postmodernism didn't happen in a vacuum. It's directly linked to the civil rights movement, women's suffrage, gender theory, and a broader understanding of the global world. It's inherently about questioning and tearing down existing structures, and you can't have social justice at all without it. You also cannot even have shows like Avatar: The Last Airbender without postmodernism, because the show itself and its very inception was born from an interaction between anime and western animation, the writers and creators were very involved with the fandom, and the result is something so incredibly self-referential that Derrida is probably turning somersaults in his grave.
But anyway.

🔥Actress Kiawentiio Tarbell born in April of 2006, will turn 16 in April of 2022.
If Netflix chooses to do 1 season for each book (as they should if they really want to grasp the entirety of the Avatar world), this would put the actress at age 18 or 19 by book Three.
Completely and legally allowing for the possibility for Zutara to happen. 🔥❤️💧
Thoughts on this theory? 😏 ❤️ Share below! 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ P.S. I remember reading about someone suggesting that they would love for there to be ‘no’ love interest in this show, but instead for Katara and Zuko to grow very close as friends (as they should), and for it ending with just that. I would honestly be ok with that too. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ 💕For even MORE Zutara Goodness, give me a follow and check out my other posts!

Katara: Dandelions symbolize everything I want to be in life Zuko: Fluffy and dead with a gust of wind? Katara: Unapologetic. Hard to kill. Feral, filled with sunlight, bright, beautiful in a way that the conventional and controlling hate but cannot ever fully destroy. Stubborn. Happy. Bastardous. Friends with bees. Highly disapproving of lawns. Full of wishes that will be carried far after I die. Mai: edible
