I’m not saying the Avatar state doesn’t have incredible—and helpful power. But you have to understand, for the people who love you, watching you be in that much rage and pain is really scary.
Just wanted a cute sketch of the couple that makes me the happiest!! ^-^
more kataang love :) the pose was so tricky ugh it was a disaster trying to figure it out so i was just like flip it lets look up a ref :////
Voicing out their disapproval of one’s decision, but lets him/her do it in the end.

This. Fucking THIS.
My god. This is the thing people never seem to get- Katara and Aang adore each other. They think that the other is the most amazing person they’ve ever known.
But they don’t always agree. They don’t always have the same opinions. They’re very in tune with each other, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t sometimes do things the other one doesn’t approve of. And when that happens, they respect each others choices. They voice their disapproval, they make sure the other one knows what they think, but they respect each other enough that they don’t try to control each other.
Katara doesn’t agree with Aang’s choice to use the Avatar State to help General Fong. She tells him that, she explains why this is so upsetting and scary to her, and that she’s chosen not to be party to that. Aang listens to what she has to say and respects her choice not to support his decision, before ultimately realizing that she was right.
Aang doesn’t agree with Katara’s choice to go assassinate her mother’s killer. He tells her that and explains that while he knows she needs closure on this incredibly hurtful part of her life, he also knows that a revenge killing is not what she needs. Katara listens to what he has to say and does what she needs to do, and ultimately decides that he was right.
Guys, this is how healthy relationships work. You don’t always agree 100% of the time, sometimes your partner does things that you think are stupid or dangerous or wrong, and if you’re a good partner to them, you tell them so. You don’t attack them or accuse them, but neither do you just let it go without saying anything and letting resentment build. Aang and Katara talk to each other and feel comfortable enough to honestly speak with each other about important things like this. They support each other, their first concern is always the others’ well-being, and if they think that the other one is doing something that endangers them in some way, they say so, because they’re looking out for each other and don’t want the other person to hurt themselves.
People kept bugging me to make this
*hides in corner*
No one with actual talent was gonna do it, so I did OKAY?
Aang: Well, I met with this Guru who was supposed to help me master the Avatar State, and control this great power. But to do it, I had to let go of someone I love, and I just couldn’t.
Iroh: Perfection and power are overrated. I think you were very wise to choose happiness and love.
