I’m rewatching Avatar: the Last Airbender from the beginning
And one of the links I’m using is from Nick.com, where they put in fun facts about the characters and the voice actors and stuff into the episode
I’m watching “The Warriors of Kyoshi,” and there’s this scene where Zuko goes, “nice try, Avatar, but these little girls can’t save you!”
And this is the fun fact the writers put in:
In the last few months of Aang’s life, he had faded as fast as morning mist. No one really predicted it— Avatars were usually very long-lived. Katara said it probably had something to do with the 100 years Aang had spent in stasis; he was already 112 by the time he saved the world. Living another 70 years was actually pushing it.
But for Tenzin, the shock of his passing had little to do with the fact that Avatars were renowned for their longevity and more to do with the fact that all little boys live under the delusion that their fathers are invincible. Even if he wasn’t a little boy anymore, but a fully grown airbender who had earned his arrows, the weeks following the funeral were spent in a daze.
Lin did her best to comfort him, spirits bless her. However, something about the rigid way she had handled her emotions after the funeral left Tenzin feeling desolate. She gave him his space when what he really wanted was her close to him, and remained silent when his unspoken words threatened to burst out of his chest. Unable or unwilling to talk to her openly, he kept it bottled inside when she was around, knowing that despite her best intentions, she would not understand that they both had different ways of mourning. This was his.
