This article may contain some spoilers, particularly for those who haven't read Smoke and Shadow yet.
In The Search one common thing that kept getting bought up was Ursa telling Azula to "take off that mask, only then will you see your true destiny." Recently another layer was added with the semi-recent announcement of the Kemurikage becoming the Fire Warriors--the Fire Nation equivalent of the Kyoshi Warriors. And naturally Azula is their leader.
This just got me thinking about Azula's fate in general. Personally, I think that this role (as a Fire Warrior) suits...
Azula hadn’t really considered her appearance in any sort of way at all, much less she hadn’t ever thought herself unattractive.
It never seemed to matter.
Never seemed to come up.
Being a princess, even a solider of sorts, beauty wasn’t something Azula ever thought she’d contemplate.
And yet, the princess found herself standing in front of the mirror wondering what was wrong. She never dwelled on her looks and so she never had the chance to realize that she wasn’t pretty in the slightest. Hadn’t had the chance until now.
Set up like the last two, here's an article about five songs I think relate to Azula and why. Songs aren't in any particular order.
1. Dysfunctional Family by Cinema Bizarre: I'm a threat to myself I'm a get Armageddon I'm a freak I'm a liar I'm a flirt I deny that I'm no good then I mess It up This song basically reminds me of post-comet Azula. After a certain point she did become a threat to herself; I mean she'd do things like jumping off of Appa from a large height that very well could have killed her if Aang didn't intercept. And the liar thing is pretty...
So I'm trying something different now. Usually I tend to type 'why I like my favorites' articles or 'why I don't like my least favorites'. So this time I decided to try something new and type about what I like about a character I'm not to fond of.
I decided to do this with Katara because, of all the characters on my dislike list, I think she's probably the most likable.
One of my favorite things about Katara is that she's just a genuinely nice girl. She always goes out of her way to help those who need her help--like that town she dressed as the Painted Lady for. I may...
One of the things I noticed about Avatar is the significance of the spirit disguises. Each disguise speaks volumes about the character using it and reflects their personality sort of like their bending styles.
I’ll start with the Painted Lady and Katara;
The real Painted Lady was a lot of things for the people of Jang Hui. She was a protector. A healer. A beacon of hope. She was a water spirit with assumably a gentle heart.
As I was posting on a different tumblr post I realized some things. Namely (and obviously each firebender has his/her own style.
Starting with Mako;
He tends to lightning bend with an open palm. The first shot is a bit hard to tell (as to whether or not his pinky and the finger next to it are actually touching his palm) either way around his bending is more open then everyone else’s. Perhaps this is an indicatior that he doesn’t know how to do it as well, maybe it’s the opposite. Perhaps it’s...
The more days that passed, the wearier Azula grew. She was tired of long flights on Appa listening to the Water Tribe siblings bicker. She was tired of setting up camp on chilly nights. And of finding some space to sleep that provided enough distance from the gang. But that always left her a distance from the fire and heaven forbid she tried to start her own.
She was tired of sleeping cold.
Most of all she was tired of trying to sleep with her mother talking so loudly in her ear.
It had been only three days since Azula arrived at Rockshire University. The campus, a rather large series of buildings sprawled throughout the rural area. Azula found the setting to be ill-suited for a campus that specialized in areas urban business, marketing, and cooperation.
That was after all what she decided to go there for—aspiring to be only the school’s best business major (minoring in psychology ofcourse)...a straight A, top-of-her-classes goal.
It would be…awkward not having Mai and Ty-Lee around to converse and discuss matters with. Back in their high...
Before anything else is stated I want it to be known that I do love both Azula and Zuko; so no this isn't gonna be a Zuko hate/bash Zuko article.
So instead of getting straight into the actual matter of the agni kai, I'd like to go over why I think Azula in general is more powerful than Zuko. This I will post from an older article (so if you read this one you may as well just scroll down lol); [i]First and foremost, the obvious; Azula has Blue fire (supposedly hotter than any other fire) on the show. This is something unique to Azula and Azula alone. Where as Bloodbending is not...
This show is by far one of the greatest shows on tv in my opinion it is the greatest and it warms my heart to know that there's other people out there that feel the same way I do about it I've watched every episode several times I know almost everything about avatar the last airbender aang katara sokka toph appa momo zuko and iroh they all feel like family and I will always keep this show close to my heart
