I dunno, Hikaru and Lizzy made a theory about how SLF actually fought the Dark Spirit alongside Yangchen, her lov... her ladyfriend and sacrificed herself in order to seal the monster away and Yangchen made the statue in her honor.
Fixed it for ya! ^_^

I still say Lao had Satoru make a giant mecha he could use to make people think a Dark Spirit is at large.

I want the next enemy to be Batman riding a shark who throw ninjas with lightsabers at his foe Cheesy
Anyway, I wonder if the Dark Spi... Robot will truly put up a good fight against the Avatar State or just overpower Aang in his normal form before being squashed like a bug.

I wonder if they're going to use this to tie Korra's decisions closer to Aang's or to show how they differ... because I doubt that a "no" answer here means Korra's actually wrong, but I'm not sure if they'd risk people thinking that by doing it.  XD;

If Aang has a different opinion, a lot of people are going to turn on Korra Cheesy

As opposed to what they do now?

But honestly, I think that even if he comes to a different conclusion than Korra, it will go to further to the point that both shows try to make (even if the fandom cries foul every time) That what is right for one Avatar isn't necessarily what's right for another one down the line. That the world is constantly changing, and sometimes you have to change along with it. Plus, this is pre Harmonic Convergence, so the "shift in the planet's energy" hasn't happened yet, so maybe for Aang, it isn't possible, where as for Korra, it very well could be.

^I agree. Avatars and people in general do what they think is right at the time until someone else decides to change it for various reasons.

I'm likely going to regret saying this but screw it because it needs to be said. I want Aang to be wrong. I want Aang to have a decision that's opposite of Korra because both shows have to emphasize on how both Avatars are different. If we let Aang have Korra's decision be the same or something similar then it would take away Korra's individuality as an Avatar. Like it or not Korra has to surpass Aang just as Aang surpassed Roku and all the other Avatar when he decided to not kill Ozai and unite the world instead of separating it.

Why are you so salty?

Pretty sure time and time again, Korra has been to shown to be different from Aang in one way or the other. And the times Aang has been "wrong" about something is plenty. Just ignore the people who cry fowl at every little minute detail. Those kind of people remind me of what a friend of mine was like when he was 12. Someone who was technically correct, but missing the bigger picture.

If a single Avatar had the answer to all the world's problems, there wouldn't be need for a cycle of them dating back thousands of years. Even the best of Avatars can't be expected to know how a decision will affect the Four Nations centuries after their time. During ATLA, the world was just recovering from war and from Aang's perspective, humans who are only now learning to trust each other again might not be ready for a whole new species to enter the picture yet. But as Korra saw through her own experience, the world was entering a new age and human-spirit relations was becoming a possibility. Every Avatar (expect Kurruk) does what they think is best for the time being. That doesn't make Aang or Korra bad Avatars, the problems they face are just different circumstances.    

On an un-related note, I'm gonna call it: SLF was a nature spirit that fell in love with Avatar Yangchen, bring into question whether or not, humans and spirits as a whole can live together in peace. Grin

Like it or not Korra has to surpass Aang just as Aang surpassed Roku and all the other Avatar when he decided to not kill Ozai and unite the world instead of separating it.

The problem is that people don't WANT Aang to be wrong… look at the backlash that came after it was revealed that Aang was a less than perfect father.

They want Korra to be wrong: Look at how everything she does, good, bad, or yet to be determined is met with cries of "WoRST AVAtaR EVUR!!!! I h8 KORA she SuX!!!!" (and a comment comparing Mako to Satan for good measure)

Pretty sure time and time again, Korra has been to shown to be different from Aang in one way or the other. And the times Aang has been "wrong" about something is plenty.

And the thing that gets me is that whenever Aang was in the wrong before Korra, the fandom was perfectly happy to criticize him. Heck, one of the biggest controversies in the fandom was whether or not Aang should have killed Ozai, and criticizing him for not listening to his past lives (even though none of them outright said "Kill the bastard" Their advice was pretty vague tbh) But the vitriol that Korra is met with is something else…

*sigh*

Anyway, supposedly we're supposed to get Yangchen's backstory at some point in the series, and it will explain why Yangchen isn't very Air Nomad-y… And probably exactly who SLF is as well. I'm excited for that, since one of the things that I really wanted to see was development on other Avatars.

Please, she's obviously a humanized Raava… Not even the people in universe can resist that sort of fan art.

I just kinda wonder what the "bonds will be tested" part means. Does that mean more heavy inter-gaang fighting or something else?

Maybe something will go down between Toph and her Dad? Or Toph and Satoru? Aang and Katara

I feel like Toph and her Dad would make a lot of sense.

And I don't know why you tiny texted the last part but it better not be Aang and Katara...that'd be pretty random and ultimately pointless.

^I tiny texted it because I was joking… that would be the most hilariously pointless thing in this comic series, and that's saying something after Aang and Zuko's "I want you to kill me if I get out of hand, so I totally won't go on to create any progeny that will ultimately go on to befriend your next incarnation" plot line in The Promise…

And yeah, Toph and her Dad probably make the most sense, since there's no way that reunion is going to go smoothly. He'll probably snub her/disown her in part 2, and then they'll come to something of a truce part 3.

Toph and her dad sound like the best bet, Wan knows their relationship has been through the wringer over the past couple years.

Maybe the statue was really Yangchen's attempt at sculpting SLF like one of her Fire Nation girls. Cheesy

I actually heard that Toph's dad disowns her or something like that. Apparently it came from information at Wondercon.

How much would Lao disowning his daughter really impact her though? I mean, of course it will hurt Toph, but she's already carved out a name for herself. At thirteen, she's a war hero, the Avatar's teacher and the inventor of metalbending, she'll be fine with or without her parents' blessing. If anything, I imagine Lao and Poppy would be the ones disgraced if Toph cut them out of her life.

^I imagine it would still hurt. The Runaway shows that she does, in fact care about her parents, even if she can't bear living under their thumb. There is a difference between not being on great terms with your family, and having them completely shun you.

Although something's been bothering me: Where did Toph get the money to buy her school? I assumed in the Promise that she made up with her parents offscreen, but since that's not the case, how did she do it? Did Zuko or someone front her the money, or is she making payments as she goes?

^ I imagine the funding was gift from various leaders and grateful civilians for her efforts in the war, but by the time of the Rift, funds are running low and Toph doesn't want anyone's charity or payment from her students, so her school's in bit of jam on money right now.
