Yeah, her mom was killed in a Fire Nation raid when she was a little girl. Spoiler alert, but it was because the Southern Raiders were told there was a waterbender left in the Southern Water Tribe (a.k.a. Katara) and her mom lied and told them she herself was the waterbender to protect Katara. Instead of capturing her Yoh Rha, the person Katara and Zuko went after, ended up killing her. And that was what the whole episode was about lol.

AVATAR IS NOSTALGIC AS FUCK
Who doesn't want to be in the Gang? It's all a trap and I have fallen for it. Every once in a while I will rewatch the series or read Fanfic and get caught up in the wirl pool of confusion. This is happening now and it is why I'm on fucking deviantart right now.

A few days ago I was with my friend in the school library and she was watching last airbender-- I thought I saw the Zuko Alone episode on her computer screen. That night I started reading fanfic and have been stuck in this one ZUKO KATARA love-hate type story where Katara is captive and Zuko is being an ass but also sometimes likee... cares. and then katara is trying to escape but then sometimes is like... in love. It's called "COld Water". It's good but there is thirty something chapters and I need to break out of the spell soon!

Wonderful, perfect sequence. I wish ZuTara had happened on the show... (Or at least if they'd given MaiKo some decent development/motivation)


 


In your sequence I kind of like that Zuko takes the initiative, it's interesting, different.

Anything is open who knows how long they where gone for, or how long it took to find him, I'd say a week or two, I love Zutara and this is great art work, surely a fanfic could come from this.

I dont get it, why does (almost) everybody hate Aang :s
This whole "Zutara" and "shipping wars" is really distracting. idk maybe its because Im a guy.
Just wondering though; is it because Zuko was a bad guy?
Reply
:iconocupers:
ocupers Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
(I'm a girl, btw) I think it's cause Zuko is a hot, hurt, brooding, mature guy
where as Aang is (not NEARLY as cute) oblivious, hyper, immature kid. he may be the avatar, but he's still 12 (not counting the 100 years he spent in an iceberg)

Its been a long time since Ive thought about all this (12/08/12 wow its been a while!) anyways. I hope a A-TAB comes out with a full length feature film, and have the gAang (lol) back and in there teens. Try and absolve some of Aangs annoying traits, showing a more Jedi way of thinking but still have him fun.  (is that even possible lol) I think it would be great to see that in between the third and fourth season of LOK. Not saying a movie will make more fans for Aang, but it would help flesh out the character beyond the hyper, immature kid. Anyways thanks for the reply :)  

 

(BTW its been a year since Ive seen this picture, it still looks great! How could I've forgotten to fav!?! doing so now :D )

I'm not exactly sure how you got that out of this picture, but I'll follow along anyways.

I agree that the shipping wars can get really distracting. Shipping should only be one small aspect of the entire series. The sad part is that it became something so integral to the plot of the show that it can't be ignored. Zutara isn't the only player in the shipping wars though. You should see some of the hate we get. It's really unfair if you think about it. We're hated for something that we thought was inherent in the show, and our feelings were played with. You can't exactly control the types of opinions you form, you can only control how you express them. If anyone can deny that, then they're just ignorant.

Maybe Aang does needlessly get a lot of hate, but so does Zuko. Often times Zuko is seen as the hot-headed, mean, whiny teenager, but that's entirely not true. Zuko learned from his mistakes, whereas Aang held tightly onto his beliefs and rarely budged. I can easily see how that aspect of Aang's character can appear admirable, but not when the world needed him to compromise. That's probably part of why Aang gets a lot of slack. He can appear very two-dimensional at times. Zuko's character is far more complex than just being the "bad guy." I'm admittedly biased because Zuko is my favorite character in the series, but I also adore Aang. He definitely doesn't deserve the hate, but neither does Zuko!

Aang's character was completely butchered in the third book in my opinion. His personality took a huge hit, and it upsets me to no end. The continuity was severely lacking there. Unfortunately, "continuity" isn't Bryke's forte. Again, this is just my opinion.

I think Aang kinda handled the southern raiders episode really stupidly. They should went balls out and had Katara kill that guy. It would had given the show a (sharper) edge. Btw I picked this picture at random to ask that question, Its a very nice picture :) Thanks for the reply.

tbh, I'm glad Katara spared that guy's life, she's not a murderer, if she had killed him, she'd be not better than he is for killing her mother. yeah she had a good reason to off 'im, but she's better than that, she's got a heart

:icondefcon613:
DEFCON613 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013

I agree and I disagree: yes, she's beyond murder. And she has heart, BUT: it would be a real twist, give the show a real human feeling of revenge. But that's coming from a (cinematic?) point of view, not saying I'dd go all violent and bloody (for that scene) but more like PG. (like Star Wars kinda revenge scene violent) 

 

Very good episode regardless, this is just one fan's two cents :)

cinematic is spelled correctly.

yeah, I see your point. but I still prefer it the way it played out
EXCEPT!!! I wish Zuko and Katara kissed at least a tiny bit

beanaroony Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would've appreciated the show even more if it wasn't directed towards kids. But even then, I don't think Katara would've killed him.

That episode...it annoys me to no end, but I still love the Zutara aspect of it. If season 3 wasn't so poorly paced, maybe it would've been a more satisfying episode.

And thank you! =)

That is the perfect way to put it. It is true, on so many levels.
