“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”
this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.
Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of those incredibly rare shows that completely nailed all the fundamentals of good and rich storytelling.

Let me tell you a fucking thing about costume design. That’s some in depth, difficult shit to learn. And the fact that this goddess can ramble this shit off the cuff means she knows her shit. ELLE WOODS IS A GODAMNED GENIUS AND IT’s NOT A STRETCH TO BELIEVE SHE GOT INTO HARVARD LAW MMMK?
FUCK YEAH ELLE WOODS OR DIE
this movie is literally about an attractive woman who loves to party having to prove over and over again that she’s also intelligent and hard-working to those who judge her based on her looks (who also empowers and fights for other women, and fosters unlikely friendships instead of engaging in girl hate) and if you don’t think that’s some great feminist shit then I don’t know what your problem is
IF YOU’RE EVER FEELING SAD JUST REMEMBER THAT TOM HIDDLESTON DREW LOKI AND HE WAS SO PROUD OF HIS WORK THAT HE TOOK A PICTURE OF HIM AND THE DRAWING

#his hearts still stutter in his chest when he hears those two words#even though it’s been centuries since he heard them last#he’s better at hiding it though #he sees his younger self freeze#go pale and shocked at the sound of the words that have always led back to Rose#and then the memory slots back into place#they’ve been coming back in bits and pieces this whole time#snatches of memory#different vantage points on conversations he’s in the middle of#different perspectives on decisions he’s already made - is making - will make#but it’s not till just now that she’s figured into the picture #it’s not her #not really#but it’s her face and her voice and he’s been starved for both for so long#and when he looks over to the box where he knows she’s sitting #he can see her#just for a moment #not quite memory and not quite reality#smiling at him from across the room (via lyricalprose)
