So, I don’t know if anyone will care, as I haven’t posted new content in quite a while.
I am really sad to say that I just don’t have the ability to follow up on this blog, so I will have to delete it (I also feel bad taking up this url in case someone else really wants it and could do something better with it)
Also, people seem to keep mistaking this blog with another one (one that does cosplays, apparently) which is just awkward sometimes.
I’ll probably cancel sometime this week. Just thought I’d give a heads up, if anyone’s still tuned.
Have a nice day!

Any discussion of Katara has to start with the fact that if she was not completely unwilling to take misogynistic crap from anyone, there would be no series. Aang would stay in the iceberg. Ozai would use Sozin’s Comet to win the war. She believed that Aang could save the world, but he wouldn’t have been able to do it at all without her.

top 20 fictional womances | katara and toph, avatar: the last airbender (2005-2008)
You call it dirt. I call it a healthy coating of earth.
In fiction, especially kid’s entertainment, frequently the girls in the text (if they are allowed to really interact at all, that is) are either BFFLs or rivals/frenemies, but what is great (SO GREAT!) about Toph and Katara’s relationship is that it does not fit at all into either of these two molds at all. It’s simply the meeting of two very different people with equally strong personalities. They don’t mesh well initially, clashing over their different ideas of what it means to be a part of a group, but they suck it up and make room for each other, eventually coming to like and admire each other. Toph finds a kind of motherly love from Katara that she otherwise lacks in her life, Katara looks up to Toph for her confidence. And though they learn from each other, neither’s persona or femininity is endorsed over the other’s. Toph and Katara have a dynamic completely informed by their own histories and motivations and personalities, not some stock, cardboard idea of what female friendship should look like. Their relationship, though not front-and-center, is granted development and a decent chunk of screentime; it evolves as Katara and Toph grow and even pushes them forward along the way. In the end, they are travel companions and comrades-in-arms and FRIENDS, not because they are two girls who are in the same room and that FEMALE FRIENDSHIP PILLOW TALK ABOUT BOYS SLUMBER PARTY QUOTA needs to be filled, but because they are two PEOPLE who are traveling and coming of age together. THIS IS THE NEXT LEVEL.
