>>117223 And those are just the ones we know about so far. I think its more to show the burdens places upon them at a young age really damaging their ability to have a well connected family. Heck that is showing a lot to have rubbed off on Tenzen. I think it might be part of Kataras remorse as well.
>>117223 I think saying they're bad parents is kind of going overboard, the problem is the only time we get to see their kids actually talk about their relationship with their parents they only talk about the bad parts, which chances are were practically nonexistent compared to the good ones. Aang wasn't a terrible father, Kya and Bumi definitely don't hate him, and his error in accidentally favoring Tenzin is realistic for him, but when those two characters were introduced we had little time to get to know them before whoops, daddy issues. Same thing with Toph. Her laissez-faire attitude towards Lin and Su is very in-character for her, and chances are it wasn't because she didn't care about them, more like it's because she was scared of repeating the same mistake her parents made.
>>117223 I really hope this doesn't send the Avatar SJW into a tizzy over how Bryke are slutshaming or attacking single motherhood or anything. Because they haven't made any moral judgement on Toph for that. And well, you know, unless you're wealthy/high class/otherwise have the privilege to afford the lack of a second breadwinner, single motherhood (or fatherhood for that matter) frankly isn't fun or glamorous.
>>117232 Because god forbid writers portray a woman, nonwhite, LGBT, or any other character from a non-privileged group by American standards as a fully fleshed out character complete with flaws, instead of making them a one-dimensional Mary Sue stock character with no depth whatsoever. Truly the writers are the worst.
>>117234 >Because god forbid writers portray a woman, nonwhite, LGBT, or any other character from a non-privileged group by American standards as a fully fleshed out character complete with flaws, instead of making them a one-dimensional Mary Sue stock character with no depth whatsoever I mean is it any surprise Asami is the fandom favorite?
>>117240 I dunno, I'd say the tides have shifted pretty heavily in her favor when it comes to the fans, unless you consider having such a vocal and obnoxious fanbase as itself a way of being fucked over.
>>117240 I mean for an Avatar character, Asami doesn't get THAT fucked over. The only continuous bad thing that happens to her is that she can't get rid of her feelings for a guy who sucks at handling relationships.
Unless by 'fucked over' they mean she doesn't have a prominent role and actual character depth, because they'd be right about that.
>>117243 >her company which has a lot of personal value to her did kinda go down the shitter And Varrick goes and saves it and we haven't heard anything from book 3 saying things got bad again. I wouldn't be surprised if it was her blimp they're using to get to Ba Sing Se.
>she got made into a puppet of Varrick's last season So did like everyone else.
>>117244 Varrick steals Asami's weapons to ruin her company, then saves her company from bankruptcy by buying a controlling interest in her company. So Varrick causes huge problems for Asami and possible now owns her company.
Also unless other companies are willing to buy things from Asami her company will face the same problems it did in the book 2.
My guess is that either Toph had a falling out with the dads, or she just felt that with her power and wealth she didn't really see the point of getting married if she didn't want to. Or maybe she fell out with them BECAUSE she didn't need them around if she didn't want them there, I dunno.
Still think that it's weird that we've gotten to the point where discussing Toph's sex life is apparently a valid point of interest for the fandom.
For the most part? No. You've got the series and the comics and that's...that's about it. Most of the kids books and the like are (presumably) non-canon and aren't ever referenced anywhere, even if they had been.
Also, that's Escape from the Spirit World, it was an online game off Nickelodeon's website that was brought over to the Book 2 DVD set.
And if you have Prime Shipping or at least buy over 25 bucks of stuff, I'd recommend Amazon and buying the compiled trade paperbacks. Otherwise, scour Barnes and Noble or whatever book store, online or brick and mortar, that you can think of.
