Speaking of artbooks…

Did you know that Naga (that appears as the polar-bear-dog in The Legend of Korra) was created before Appa the Sky-Bison was?

My little sister pointed it out in the first pages of the Avatar Artbook!

It’s been a fantastic year for fans of“Avatar: The Last Airbender.”Not only did the “Legend of Korra” animated series debuted to near-universal critical and fan acclaim, butDark Horsecontinued to up the “Avatar” ante withits graphic novel series “The Promise,”which helps fill in…

"The return of Azula" I AM BUYING THIS THE SECOND IT COMES OUT.

I always hesitated between water and air for myself. But if these are correct, I’m totally Air. Totally the worst I can be as well.

And hey

Energybending - A Comparison
While the Lionturtle and Aang use the same technique, Amon seems to be using another method.
When Aang takes away Ozai’s bending, and when the Lionturtle teaches Aang energybending, they both thouch TWO points on the body, the yin tang and the ru zhong point aka the Ajna chakra and the Anahata chakra. 
When Amon ‘takes away’ LBZ’s bending, he only touches ONE point, the yin tang.
Now what could that mean?
I think Amon is faking it. That he is making people believe that he is taking away their bending, when what he is actually doing is blocking a chakra.
Here is why:
Amon touches the yin tang point aka the Ajna chakra:

Yintang Acupuncture Point  






Location: Midway between the medial ends of the eyebrows  Actions& Effects:
Calms the spirit - insomnia, anxiety, stress.
Frontal headache.
Sinus issues - congestion, sinusitis.






When Uncle is teaching Zuko about lightning, he talks about bending needing a certain amount of inner calm. So, if you were to close that chakra and lock all the anxiety inside someone, making them incapable of being calm, that would effectively take someone’s bending away.
Quite clever actually, since the more terrified they are/become the more permanent this block will be. And Amon is sure laying it on thick.
Ru zhong, Ajna chakra, Anahata chakra.

I’d also like to note that he touches the back of his neck too. It’s really split second but he does.

Now if we look here….

Hmmmmmm…..


“AMON”
“AMON”

oh
OH
OH MY FUCKING GOD

Holy crap. Never underestimate the Avatar fandom to pick up on everything. O_O

I love this fandom. <3

Can we talk about how awesome it was when Toph and Katara crossdressed in the A:TLA comic?  Because that was one of my favorite parts.

Totally.

My take on what Asami might look like. She’s a new character who we know nothing about yet, except that she’s voiced by the same actress as Princess Yue.  I interpreted her as some kind of Yue incarnation.
Leave it to me to find ways to ship characters who have nothing but a name yet.


Yue&#8217;s incarnation, you think?? Oooh man, the porn this pairing would see. *crosses fingers*

The emotion in this scene is amazing.

Whoah, it looks like she’s crying BLOOD.

All of Azulah’s scenes are amazing ;)

Jun is the Lady Gaga of the Avatar world.

June is one of my most favorite characters in Avatar!… but then again, I don’t think there’s one character I’ve not fallen in love with in that series.

Yes, even the cabbage man.
