The Avatar’s Animal Guides
Human Raava and Human Vaatu!!!
Really awesome concept!
Be still my heart
I JUST REALIZED IT’S NOT JUST WAN’S STATUE
IT’S RAVA’S STATUE TOO
ISN’T THAT GREAT HOW EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE NOW
We will be together for all of your lifetimes.
And we will never give up.
That’s really amazing that Raava is keeping watching over avatars, especially Aang, who spent 100 years in iceberg.
Crazyintheeast, thanks for the idea c:
So I’ve been thinking. Korra, like all avatars, is such a powerful bender but she’s just so cocky. I think that she needs something to bring her down and show her that, even though she’s the avatar, she isn’t any better than anyone else. Kurik was in a similar situation and it took the loss of the person that he loved most to teach him a lesson. I don’t want to see that happen to Korra, but she certainly needs to be shown that she isn’t as powerful as she thinks that she is. That’s why I love that Book 2 has to do with spirits. It’s evident that spirits are far more powerful than her. I’m really excited for this week’s episode because we left with Korra being presumably eaten by that big spirit.
It actually bothers me a little how some people want Korra to be exactly like Aang. They’re different Avatars, in different times, from entirely different upbringings. Yeah, Korra can be irrational with her thoughts, but she’s been very sheltered her whole life and I don’t think anyone really told her about how the world and politics work. She didn’t even seem to have friends until she met Bolin and Mako. Compare that to Aang, who was allowed to roam around and see the world. Before Sokka and Katara, he had Kuzon, Bumi, and all those other airbender children to play with.
I’m not trying to justify Korra’s actions, blowing up at the president and straight up sending Mako’s desk flying are definitely not the best ways to deal with the civil war. I’m just trying to explain that even though she is Aang reincarnated, her new life is vastly different than her old one, so she will act based upon what she has learned from her family and teachers.
The way I see it, she’s been taught for her entire life how to be the Avatar. However, nobody but the Avatar knows how to be the Avatar. The White Lotus and everyone else that tried to teach her have set her up for failure. It seems that all of Korra’s mentors (except for maybe Tenzin) had an alternate agenda. She’s been conditioned by everyone else not to make her own decisions. She was kept isolated in the South during all of her training so she never got to see the world. She was never given a chance to experience other cultures and small problems that she could try to fix before being thrust into making world-altering decisions. For example, in the A:TLA episode, “The Divide,” Aang was able to sort out the differences and learn problem solving skills with something that wouldn’t have dire consequences if he didn’t make the right decision. Korra never had a chance.
