My inner rapid shipper is coming out now...I can't stand Tokka. I just wanna see their friendship and shenanigans, I love them as a bromance. Though I would think by now that Toph's crush on Sokka would have faded. When is she gonna get with Dark Boy?

Toph's crushes don't fade. Toph is boy crazy. She keeps switching crushes to whichever boy is standing closest to her.

Oh God. I feel like I'm having 'Nam flashbacks with the way you people are talking about shipping.

Let's not jump the gun or anything. I would like to come here and read posts that aren't all about flaming other ships.

Yeah, uh, about dat there "The Promise"...I think my resolve is going to break soon. Almost every time I go on this thread, I have a reason to go "screw it" and just find the Promise online...but I...I dunno, I wanna see if I can abstain myself from full blown leaks. I mean 75% of the comic the few panals I will let myself see, but the whole comic? I'll just (try to) wait.

Twinkle Toes being the exception. He's too girly for her.

I'm not a real shipper or anything, but I don't think Tokka happening would be that big of a deal, (of course it would be for some people) not as big as Maiko not happening. Whatever canons good for me, THE CREATORS KNOW BEST! I don't really care either way, but I don't think Tokka's happening anyway...

Anyway, back to topic!

So am I right to assume that now that many of us have *ahem* somehow managed to see the comic, the general consensus is that it was better than the leak suggested? I only ask because it gives me hope that people will still be looking forward to the second book, and not just writing it off. XD

Well, personally, I loved the comic! And of course the story went much smoother when every single page was there this time.
I get the vibe that people don't like the comic because there was almost no character development (there could be other reasons too, but this was the only one I really saw.) And yeah, I agree, the characters didn't really change much. But it was still a really good story, and I was happy I got to see something Avatar related (besides Korra stuff) since the finale more than 4 years ago.
I admit, Tokka is pretty darn cute Smiley and secretly I like that shipping a little bit better than Sukka, but we all know that Sukka's gonna win. It's no big deal for me, though, because I like everything that's canon. I'm still looking forward to the second book either way.

Why does it matter if people are writing off the second book?

Just in general I hope Avatar related things do well. Smiley

I'm in the same boat as you Avapony, I really don't have any strong shipping preferences, but I always thought Toph's crush on Sokka was cute.

^I don't have much shipping preferences either, I know Sukka's canon, and I love canon, but the only reason I'm not 100% for it is because Suki kinda became a boring character once they started like, dating. I don't think Tokka is that horrible of a thought.

 But, i hope we see Sokka and Toph's relationship develop more in part 2. And i don't mean romantically.

^Lol where are people getting this stuff? (rhetorical question, calm down) I'd love for more leaks to appear even if it is early.


Most of the reviews don't have much meat to them, but this one is solid.

That was a good review, I especially liked the connection they made to Zuko's notion of how the colonists are to be treated in correspondance of the way his mother was treated. That was a great analogy and I honestly never thought of that, that's a great point.

^^ I asked to the one who posted this pic on her DA account, she said it's from The Promise part 2!

Aha, I found the artist by saving the picture to my computer and reading the artist's username from the file's default save name. I need a life ahaha. I begged her to send me leaks, but idk if she will ahaha.

That can make it a little harder.

I know that neither Gene or Gurihiru post it.

But it can be from amazon.  Undecided
