Today I learned that there is a part of the Bible that is called “Song of Songs” that celebrates sexual love. Seriously, celebrates like with confetti’s and chorus of people singing. I mean you can say anything about the Bible and you know… the whole incestuous relationships, child murdering, stoning business and occasional destruction of a whole civilization/world but don’t you ever say it doesn’t go all “Yay, my sweeties, you go into each other’s gardens and eat its choicest fruits ;)” when love is concerned.
eternally pissed that mastery of the Avatar State was basically handed to Korra with a glowing little bow while Aang had to give blood, sweat, tears, and three seasons for it.
Even though I also think that was solved a little too quickly in Korra’s case one cannot forget that the Avatar state mastery deals with the inner feelings of the Avatar. Sure, Korra is a teenager boiling in hormones, sure she has some repressed feelings she has to deal with but you cannot even compare them to Aang. I am not even talking about him being a child. Remember when the series starts he is so messed up, with so much hate and guilt towards the fire nation and himself? Sure he is the nicest guy alive but Aang…gosh…he had to go a very, very long way to deal with all those feelings. I mean, all his family murdered, his teachers, his friends, Korra never had to deal with a loss like that and if she has in the future_please no, writers no_ I think she IS going to lose the mastery of the Avatar State, since she will hate the world, she will hate herself and she WILL let chaos grow every bit as much in her inner self as Aang did.
But for now, let’s all enjoy happy Korra for a while. Don’t get mad at her for using her Avatar State without actually going as deep as Aang did when he did all those phone-a-Predecessor in times of need. Because I have a feeling we won’t be seing her for a while, not now that the fire nation attacked northern tribe is visiting.
Raising a child with any disorder, condition or special need, is both a blessing and a challenge.
Children with special needs caused by genetic disorders are a reallity. So are the parents of those children. Actually knowing these parents and these children changed my view on the “should bes” of this world so I’m not saying anyone has to read it, but I still have to share it.
