#this is actually the best (and coolest) use of airbending that we see in the show #because this craft is about circles and avoidance and poor aang is forced to use it so many times for violence when he doesn’t want to #like here though we see it used as both an offense AND defense and it’s just so perfect for who he is and what he needs to do #he’s not just propelling himself away from the explosion #he’s projecting it back TOWARDS the attacker #to save his and his friends’ lives and potentially do some damage to the enemy #and the air acts as a shield that will toss him into the air but he knows he’ll be all right as long as his friends are #because saving lives comes first to him #it always will
Can I just
This is why I love airbending so much. And Aang. akdjfd;kfjg
Book 1: Water, The Boy in The Iceberg and Book 3: Fire, Avatar Aang.
The title of the first episode of ATLA to the very last episode reflects Aang’s transition from a naive boy stuck in an iceberg for a hundred years who has awaken to an Avatar that has accepted his destiny. He is clearly one of the most lovable characters in the show, despite his childish ways he was able to mature into a man. He is creative and has always tried to solve his problems by being quick or clever and only had to use violence for necessary defense and has not tried to take a life, even if everyone clearly tells to kill the Firelord, even his own past lives tell him that. But he still sticks to his beliefs and was able to defeat the Firelord.
Watching TLOK has made me miss this wonderful bald monk. I can’t wait to see him in the Spirit World (with his sexy beard)
