What is it with Avatar and sibling rivalry?
Ozai and Iroh
Azula and Zuko
Tarrlock and Amon
And now Korra's dad and Uncle, Tonraq and Unalaq

I get that all this is meant to contrast to the "healthy" sibling relationship between two of the protagonists, but this yin-yang bro-sis stuff is starting to feel kind of forced and trite. There's having a pervading motif and then there's just being repetitive.

What're your thoughts on this recurring feature, /a/?

>good dads too, like Hakoda, Tyro, and Tonraq
How did you forget Tenzin. He almost makes up for all the bad dads by himself.

For what it's worth, the same dynamic never appears twice. Azula and Zuko seem to have been set against each other from the very beginning. Iroh and Ozai were probably always distant due to the huge age gap. Amon and Tarrlok used to be very close and in the end genuinely thought they were doing what was best for each other.
>> No. 112970
I wouldn't say Azula and Zuko were set against each other from the beginning. Even in 'Zuko Alone', where we see Azula picking on him and Mai, we later see that the two were playing together happily when the news about Lu Ten's death came. And then there's the hazy flashbacks that Zuko has in The Storm, which shows two figures running and playing in the hills, although that's unclear as to whether Azula is the second one.

So I'd say there's always been a mixture of affection and intense rivalry there, it's just the latter often won out, which is pretty much the opposite of Amon and Tarrlock.

>How did you forget Tenzin. He almost makes up for all the bad dads by himself.

Sorry, I was really tired when I wrote that and started off with only ATLA characters at first, then added in the LoK ones later and somehow missed Tenzin, for which I now must hang my head in shame. You're completely right about him, he's a fantastic dad. Oh, and let's not forget Aang himself. Even though we haven't actually seen Daddy Aang and his kids in anything other than fanart, you know he'd be great, and just look at how his kids turned out. Can't wait til we see more of them.

And now I'm wondering about Zuko and Sokka. I can totally see Zuko acting like pic related, trying to overcompensate for his own lousy father. Mai would probably keep him in check, but I bet he'd be the type to spoil his daughter. There hasn't been any official word on whether Sokka and Suki spawned yet, but I bet Sokka would be a really fun dad with his wacky antics and attitude. You can tell from the flashbacks in LoK that it's carried over at least a little into his adult life, so he'd be good with kids.

>I don't remember any prominent sister/sister pairings, just sister/brother ones. I feel like the former is severely underrepresented in media that isn't specifically geared towards young females.

I think you're right about that, unfortunately. And also like you said, sister/mother relationships aren't very common either. Mothers seem to get the short end of the stick overall, which is why it was nice to see more of them in LoK. Given the fit that Nick pitched about having a female lead in the first place, we're probably lucky they got any focus at all.

Confession /a/: I really don't hate Mako and I think had they not tried to shoehorn him into ending up with Korra during the last stretch of Book 1, he'd be a more well-liked character among the fanbase, even with his douchey moments in previous episodes. I think he can still be salvaged though

>> No. 112840

It does matter whether the show still has the potential in spite of the fuck ups of its writers in the first season. There's no reason to just give up on Korra. Its first season, while weakly written, was way more entertaining than all the Thundercats reboot.

>Spare me your pity, Air Nomad. You gush about your connection to nature, your primal wisdom, but what has it brought you?

>Where are your people's marvels of engineering? Your voyages of discovery? Your great insight into the nature of the universe? Even at our basest, when we dressed in simple clothes and were subject to the mercy of vindictive spirits and the harsh wilds, we did more than merely survive and meditate our sorrows away. We built wonders. We made great journeys. We forged epics and great civilizations. You did not.

>You speak so proudly of your monasteries lying vacant in the mountains, little realizing they were but prisons and you the prisoners. What little your people and these other nations have accomplished you attribute to the so-called "balance" brought by you, the Avatar. You, who are nothing more than a relic of a bygone age who wishes to keep the world frozen in time. You moor the world to the past, serving as a leash which denies the inevitable victory of the strong over the weak, keeping the people of this world little more than apes, sad parodies of civilization that lack that special spark to become something more.

>I have to come to this continent to create a new world, but whether your actions drive me back or I burn this nation to ash, the outcome will be the same. We will depart from this wretched Earth Kingdom, leaving you behind. And in a thousand years, you will have not changed from this contact with a greater civilization. You will remain repairing the same old walls with the same stone, never reaching for the skies above you. Complacent and docile, until the sun burns out and this world dies.

>And above your tomb, the stars will belong to us.

I was trying to watch The Last Airbender on Netflix a few nights ago, then when I was just starting Season 3 it stopped working because it was midnight and as my luck would have it they were removing ATLA from Netflix that day. So I'm craving Avatar, both because I didn't get to finish rewatching Season 1 and I've only seen legend of Korra halfway through.

I just felt like venting this mild frustration to you guys. Also, I've got no Avatar fanart.

I don't suppose you fine folks on +/a/ would have a pastebin or some form of information where I could watch Avatar, alternative to netflix?

I have to admit. As opposed to shipping as I normally am... I really do have a soft spot for this pairing. I don't know what it is... I think part of it being a holdover from the Baroness on G.I. JOE (there was an episode where she and Duke... or one of the main JOE's kind of bonded a bit...), but I've always has a thing for bad girls/villainesses falling for kindhearted guy despite herself.

All in all, despite the excuses, explanations and whatever else bullshit I might come up with to justify the thing. I seriously think these two are just fuckin' cute together.

The point of shipping is to have fun, you don't need an excuse for that. Sadly, some people take it way too seriously.

I support the Equalists. I may have been born a waterbender, but I agree with Amon even after the unveiling of his secret power. Nobody would listen to a bender on the subject of civil rights for those not blessed with such abilities. Concealing such is the only way to truly get the message out which is why I have taken it upon myself to never use my bending powers again. I want Equality now and I will stop at nothing until non-benders are equal to benders in every possible way.
