My ATLA Headcanon
Wow, so I cannot draw.
That’s alright though. I’m more of a writer. And I have a story to tell.
I have always been disabled. However, up until eight years ago, I could still walk, run, skip, jump, etc. In November 2006, I had a surgery that left me almost paralyzed. I could walk short distances but had to spend the rest of my time in a wheelchair. I was scared and confused. I didn’t know what to do. One day, I turned on the small television in my hospital room and realized that there was an Avatar marathon on. Now, you must understand. I’ve watched Avatar since I was in the fourth grade – when the very first episode came out! So I sat back and eagerly watched the marathon, whispering the dialogue and humming along to the music. When The Northern Air Temple came on, I sat in stunned silence. I had forgotten all about Teo! Here was an epic, well-written, character who just so happened to be disabled! Even better, he was a character who didn’t let his disability define him! By the time I reached The Blind Bandit, I was grinning from ear-to-ear as I watched Toph take down the group of wrestlers.
Toph and Teo are two of the best characters with disabilities that I’ve ever seen. Both are shown to have their limitations. Nevertheless, they’re both mentally, emotionally, and physically strong! And most importantly, they overcome their limitations! Teo can still fly around with the rest of his friends and is able to protect his home when the time comes. Toph is still able to travel around with the Avatar and has proven herself to be an excellent fighter and the greatest earthbender in the world!
To me, it was as if these fictional characters were saying, “You can do this! Don’t listen to anyone who says otherwise. What do they know!?”
And eight years later, it seem that the tables have turned.
A large part of the Avatar fandom seems to be taking the news that Korra’s in a wheelchair very badly. I’ve seen so many depressing and nasty comments. Many people are wondering how the Avatar can still fight and keep balance while being in a wheelchair.
And every time I see someone comment about how Korra “can’t do this” I just smile and think, “Yes, she can.”
Out of the 4 elements I have to say that I have the attitude/temper of a Firebender(I'm not an angry asshole though!) Being able to alter the color of the fire? I think it'd be really cool to bend Green Fire idk why I just really like the idea. I also would've wanted to learn to bend the Original Way like Aang and Zuko did. +Combustion bending!
Blowing myself up.
Its Air! It's my favorite type of bending(other than water) as well.I love their beliefs and how the monks lived. "Every life is sacred"
I'm not feeling the idea of being a Vegetarian, but I guess it makes sense by the quote I noted in the "Pro". Would sushi/fish be considered vegetarian?
Crystalbending & Metalbending would be awesome.
I'd most definitely crush myself trying to move a boulder. I lack the personality/mindset of an Earthbender.
Just look at what Ming Hua was capable of doing. This element has always been one of my favorites in the entire series, and it's great that the majority of these powerful benders are all woman.
i just read a theory that aang knew about harmonic convergence and that he would be too old to stand a chance against vaatu when it came, and also if he died a short time before it the next avatar would be too young to stand a chance so he waited as long as he could before killing himself so the next avatar would be at peak age and physical condition for harmonic convergence
How dare you….
