OZAI ISN’T ZUKO’S FATHER WHICH COMPLETELY THROWS OUT ZUKO AS A LEGITIMATE HEIR TO THE THRONE AND THE ENTIRE ARC OF ZUKO HAVING TWO WARRING BLOODLINES INSIDE HIM TO HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN AND ANYONE WHO TRIES TO PULL “WELL OZAI RAISED HIM” WITH ME GETS THE DUNGEON FOR 3948758456 YEARS BECAUSE OZAI WAS AN ABUSIVE FUCK AND IROH WAS ZUKO’S REAL FATHER IN ANY SENSE OF THE WORD THAT MATTERS AND MIKE AND BRYAN AND GENE YANG ARE IN A TIME OUT NOW THEY ARE GROUNDED FOREVER
THEY TRASHED ZUKO’S DEVELOPMENT AND HIS CHARACTER AND THE STRUGGLES HE WENT THROUGH BY MAKING HIM SOMEONE ELSE’S SON
LITERALLY HIS ENTIRE ARC WAS BASED OFF OF OZAI’S ABUSE AND NEGLECT TOWARDS HIM AND HIM BEING A CHILD WHO JUST WANTED HIS FATHER TO LOVE HIM
THIS IS THE WORST NARRATIVE BETRAYAL IN THE HISTORY OF BETRAYALS
THIS IS SHITTIER THAN THE ENTIRETY OF THE LAST AIRBENDER MOVIE WHICH AT LEAST MADE ME LAUGH AT ITS STUPIDITY
I AM IN A RAGE
THIS IS PROBABLY MADDER ABOUT FICTIONAL COMICS CHARACTERS THAN I HAVE EVER BEEN
HOW DARE THEY.
Just a little head burp: what if the older GAang met their younger selves
I couldn’t resist after seeing the official SDCC GAang designs *swoon*
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to bed because today I am going to Japan for 2 weeks.
Sokka is killing me
the aaNG ONE
i swear to god if you think asami complains too much about her ‘daddy issues’ then you need to read some fucking classic literature smh
y’all motherfuckers also need jesus
i mean what if your dad suddenly joined a terrorist organization and you had to zap the fucker unconscious? and that resulted in you losing your home and only family left?
yeah i’m sure you wouldn’t complain
i mean she didn’t sign up for this shit
It’s really terrible when people begin to compare Asami’s struggles with Zuko’s and claim that Zuko is the best of the two because he doesn’t constantly whine about his dad.
Let’s forget the fact that comparing one’s experiences with another is totally shitty for one second. Yes, Ozai had done worse and barely considered Zuko a human being, let alone his son, but Zuko always knew that his father didn’t care for him. As harsh as this may sound, he was used to his father’s poor treatment since this was something that he had gone through from the very start.
Asami, on the other hand, is completely blindsided. She spent 18 years with Hiroshi thinking that she was daddy’s little girl. They went through the pain of loss together when Mrs. Sato was killed. They were supposed to be a team. To find out that your best friend is on the other side, on a side that you can’t relate to and that he can’t back out of, can cause a sudden and jarring rift between a father and a daughter. When Hiroshi tried to kill Asami, Asami had to quickly accept that her father was not the man that she had known for all her life.
I’m not here to invalidate Zuko or Asami’s struggles. Their experiences are far too different. However, I will say that at least Zuko had friends to pat his back and give him hugs. Asami didn’t have that. She was left alone as people constantly doted over Korra’s feelings.
No…Asami has daddy issues, all right. Entirely fucking justified daddy issues. Anyone who faults her for having daddy issues…well, see OP.
Also, side-eyeing the hell out of anyone claiming Zuko “whined” less than Asami did.
