i can’t stop thinking about how the only reason that the fire nation didn’t manage to conquer and destroy the world is because katara flipped a shit on her brother for making a sexist comment and stumbled upon aang in the iceberg
this post is getting notes and now i can’t stop thinking about how much of the plot is driven by katara’s idealism. there’s a reason she’s the one who speaks during the opening credits, reiterating with every episode that she believes Aang can save the world. she gets the story moving through her refusal to put up with bullshit and she takes the gaang on so many of their most meaningful journeys because she never gives up on people and on the possibility of a better future. even when it’s naive and it seems futile, like her speech to the earthbending prisoners or her fight against a sexist waterbending master who would have kicked her ass and thought nothing of it if he hadn’t been in love with her grandmother, she aggressively tries to right every wrong she sees.
i also love the way that she’s both a healer and a warrior. water is seen as a healing and cleansing element, but it can also be fierce and influential. Katara shows that those things aren’t mutually exclusive. her fundamental instinct is to nurture and to protect, and yes, to heal, but she rejects the northern water tribe’s attempts to make her passive and nonviolent. she wants to be a warrior because she recognizes that the only way to heal the world now is to fight for it, and to fight for people even when they don’t think they’re worth fighting for anymore.
ok the thing with taking pics with my bassoon is that whenever I pose with it I put my left hand on the finger holes (usually the right hand just does whatver it wants) which would probably be ok if it were a different instrument but the way bassoon is makes my one hand look so dumb

remember way back in 2006 when the wii first came out and then the entirety of the world forgot how to hold onto something with a firm grasp so much that nintendo had to make a shock absorbing condom just so that tvs wouldnt get destroyed when people would end up sending this thing flying at their tvs at 900 miles per hour
Fuck "different generation" horseshit. my grandfather grew up in rural Appalachia in the 1920's, and he had zero problems with his kids marrying a Korean and an Iranian. How about being less racist than my 90-year-old hillbilly grandpa?
wait i had a sip of a pumpkin spice frapp the other day and it was soooo bad???? i wasn’t expecting it to be so disappointing and i’m not trying to be contrary but coffee and pumpkin spice is a terrible mix omg
