A chronicle of my descent into madness, where I reblog nonsense and shake my fist at the clouds. Sometimes I draw.
Spongebob repeat replaces 2nd Korra episode.
look what you can buy
There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
Okay, so as you all may know, I’m trying to go back to school in August. I’m set for most things, except for… and this is pretty embarrassing to admit… tolietries. I don’t have enough and neither does my family to afford soap or tooth paste or anything like that. I’m really not asking for much,…
First metal bending Avatar
This makes no sense to me at all. There is no reason at all as to why Aang wouldn’t have learned metal bending at some point.
Yeah, that threw me off, too.
I mean, I know Aang had a lot of trouble when he was first learning to Earthbend, since it’s his polar opposite element. But, as they got older, surely Toph, having become a touch more patient of a teacher, could have easily have taught him. I mean, she got to where she trained a whole police force, so yeah.
Maybe it’s an attempt to set her more apart from the past Avatars, though she already has so many things that do that, and is finally making way to handling her position like she should. (Finally just in the sense that it’s the third season, and she’s now getting into the groove of doing like an Avatar is meant to do.) She still has her whole life ahead of her, though, and a lot of Aang’s accomplishments took place after AtLA, and we’re seeing them here, in LoK. So, yeah, adding this on to Korra’s accomplishments is weird, having her being the first Metalbending Avatar, just for the sake of making the fact that she can Metalbend even more impactful, when it’s already impressive and important that she’s able to do it, since it’s supposed to be a rare skill.
Yeah, it feels more like it’s pushing down Aang to make her seem better instead of it pushing her up.
This is such an interesting point I hadn’t even considered while watching the episode. It really does seem unlikely that Aang wouldn’t have picked something up from Toph.
Metal bending is super cool to me because unlike healing, or lightning, it’s still depicted as a huge accomplishment. That was what I wanted to feel for Korra: a sense of triumph. Instead, she just gives it a go out of casual curiosity. In a few days, she’ll be an expert at cables and tearing through steel walls, as scene in the trailers.
The show tell’s us this is a testament of Korra’s powers, but it should have shown us too. We commonly have to be fed her sudden, heal-turn revelations through convenient external forces like Aang, Tenzin or Wan. And in this small case, it’s Su, praising Korra for being the first Avatar the bend metal: a statement in the guise of development. Because although it might seem like this is her moment, it’s really Bolin’s. He’s the one who grows from this, who becomes insecure and battles with this for the rest of the episode. He is the one with the revelation, the struggle, the resolution, not Korra. For Korra, it’s another thing for her to do, but for Bolin, it’s a part of who he is and who he can be.
