I rewatched the series and finished it today, and now I want to watch legend of Korra, I just love the series that much
Both have a mostly hard magic system, not even considered magic by its users, with notable exceptions to the rules established early on.
The main character is a young boy who is himself one of those notable exceptions.
Child characters witness some really disturbing stuff, for kids! They're also child soldiers! Yay!
The main character has a sidekick who feels insecure about not being as good at magic as him.
Surprisingly thoughtful disability representation
The main character's love interest is a femme with an unstereotypical specialty in mechanical engineering.
A fire specialist appears to be the villain at first, but later he's on the same side as the good guys.
Cute hybrid animals! :D
It's going to be a long series of threads. So if you want me to ruin your day grab some popcorns.
I wished to share my progress, maybe at the best to give you some ideas. Anyways I might be abandoning my work its been far too long since I had started it and I didn't do enough justice.
Actually I have a lot say but it's just an abstract summary of what I had intended and the starting somewhat closely mirrors The Search.
From what we've seen in the show, bending is genetic. Every bender we see seems to have at least one bender parent. But could Aang, the Avatar, have a child who was an earthbender or firebender? If he and Katara could only have children based on their ethnic background, then no. But could it be possible that Aang passes earthbending or firebending to one of his children, even though he was born an airbender?
Hama said she needed the power of the full moon to bloodbend. Key word power. Amon doing that without the full moon means his normal power levels is as strong as an enhanced waterbender. Not even going into the boundaries he pushed in bloodbending.
Yakone is not stronger than Amon. Yakone may have had a wider showing of power in the courtroom but Amon using bloodbending to take away bending surpasses even that. In fact it's the point of his final confrontation with his dad. Amon is stronger and given his wide skill range there is every reason to believe he is just as skilled in his application of water.
And + TOPH can defeat katara and YAKONE DEFEATED TOPH EZ so this means Yakone and amon are stronger
After Aang comes back from destroying fire Navy ships, he's speaking with Yue and Katara about the spirits, when the latter suggests that the spirits might be able to offer Aang the wisdom to defeat them. Aang however excitedly hopes that "maybe they'll unleash a crazy amazing spirit attack on the fire nation!"
Lo and behold, come the next episode, *****(SPOILERS)*****
That's exactly what happens. Just some fun foreshadowing.
