I have been completely unable to maintain any semblance of relationship on any level.
I have been a bastard to the people who have actively attempted to deliver me from peril.
I have been acutely undeserving of the ear that listen up and lip that kissed me on the temple.
I have been accustomed to a stubborn disposition that admits it wish it’s history disassembled.
I have been a hypocrite in sermonizing tolerance while skimming for a ministry to pretzel.
I have been unfairly resentful of those I wish that acted different when the bidding was essential.
I have been a terrible communicator prone to isolation over sympathy for devils.
I have been my own worst enemy since the very genesis of rebels.
I’m pretty pleased with the 12th doctor
Can we talk about Aang’s relationship with his kids for a second?
So in the Legend of Korra episodes, Civil Wars parts 1 & 2, we find out that Aang doted on Tenzin and neglected Kya and Bumi when they were children, because they were not airbenders. Now, I know a lot of you have a problem with this, because we knew Aang and he was such a caring, thoughtful child. So it is difficult, if not impossible, to imagine him as neglecting anyone, let alone his own children.
But I’ve been thinking about it and the more I do, the more it seems completely rational that Aang would act this way.
Aang deals with a lot of guilt and mourning over the death of his people, and while he works through it in the show, that kind of loss doesn’t ever go away and undoubtedly affected him his whole life. Imagine the kind of burden that would have put on him, to be the last airbender, especially when it came to being a father. He was literally the only one in the world who could bring back the airbenders, through his children.
Now imagine his disappointment when his first child is not only not an airbender, but not a bender at all. He and Katara are both benders, so statistically they should have bender children, yet their first child is a nonbender. Aang would have loved his son, yes, but he would have been disheartened nonetheless.
So then they have another child, Kya, and this time she’s a bender, but not an airbender, a waterbender. This would have been heartbreaking to Aang almost as much, because not only is she not an airbender either, but she is named after Katara’s mother. This is a sweet and wonderful gesture, but it would still have been a painful reminder of Aang’s inability to revive his loved ones through his children.
Then, finally, they have an airbender child. Imagine how excited Aang must have been. He was finally not alone. He had brought a chance for more airbenders into the world. He even names him Tenzin after Gyatso, the only father he ever had.
Aang would have felt so much pressure to do right by Tenzin, to teach him everything about airbenders and their culture that I think it’s likely that he could have neglected his other children. I think it makes sense that Aang took Tenzin to Kyoshi Island and the air temples and all over the world in his efforts to make sure his people lived on, because Tenzin was his only chance.
