i don’t really see how else they could’ve handled Azula because she was basically following in Ozai’s genocidal and destructive path. Like I think we can acknowledge that she was probably abused and mentally ill without also erasing the fact that she did some really horrible things.
im uncomfortable with how tumblr, and mostly white feminists and ppl who talk about ‘weaponized femininity’ equate powerful women = role models when power =/= integrity.
that being said, there are definitely things i wish the show had delved into such as Ursa’s connection to Zuko, Iroh’s favoritism for Zuko (obviously influenced by the loss of his own son) and all the other fucked up power dynamics and the obvious abuse that Ozai was meting out to his children. I really appreciated The Beach episode for giving us a little glimpse behind the veil. but i wanted more.
all this is to say, I love Azula, but painting her as a 100% victim is neither accurate nor does it do justice to the message and writing of the show.
and then there’s the comics.
awkfsejfnonvw THANK YOU! (:
Happy Earth Day!
thanks for the info!! (:
Yes, that’s what I’m saying! Plus, I think it’s supposed to thunderstorm tonight so that will only make things worse. Sadly, there really isn’t much I can do…I’ll try my best to convince her though!
Oh really? Wow, that’s horrible!
Yeah, I’m gonna try and convince my mom to keep them for the night and then call some professionals to take them away. Wish me luck
because Lord knows I’m gonna need it.
I have no clue…probably but it seems a little too late to call them now. They’re just sitting in our garage but not for long because my mom is just not having it, lol. She’s going to make my dad take them out to a field or something, I really don’t know nor do I have a say in what goes on. :/
On the bright side I recorded her reaction and everything. Wish I could show you guys because I’m still trying to recover. I was dying~
