Mary: In the AU, who do you think would be famous for bending skill or being a badass nonbender?
There had to be at least one ofr two people in history who let go of their earthly tethers and could fly like Laghima and Zaheer…ideas I have so far for various people that stuck out throughout history:
Bloodbenders (used for bad, of course, and not for medical reasons like in some areas and thus get more press) include Vlad the Impaler.
Bonebenders (yes, you read that right) include Mary of Tudor.
Badass nonbenders include Martin Luther and pretty much the entire Tokugawa Shogunate.
Um, metalbenders, lightningbenders, being able to fucking fly…hmmm
Um…yeah, that’s all I’ve got.
Some Avatars, like Jesus and Jeanne d’Arc, would be remembered forever in paintings and writings alike.
Other Avatars, like Eudoxia and Claira, would be lost to history if it weren’t for future Avatars recording their lives down.
All Avatars, Mary learned, had at least one statue of themselves in the Interfaith Shrine of the Yellow Lotus in Washington D.C. and the Violet Lotus University of Spiritual Causes and Avatar Studies.
At least zie had that small comfort even if zie messed up in zir duties.
Was rereading posts and thinking about the finale and I just thought: what would the various microaggressions and outright lies about history and religion be at the Shrine in Washington D.C.? (The University is in Cairo so I don’t know if it’d be so shitty in terms of propaganda)
"-and it was so weird and I lost my connection to my past lives and airbenders appeared as former nonbenders due to the spiritual shift!"
"That does sound like a weird dream, but now its time for your airbending lesson."
Considering the finale let me remind you all of this.
Mary: After that finale, I think its time we focus on something we actually have control over.
Mainly, the AU. I really want it to be a group project instead of just me doodling and writing alone on my laptop…
Isn’t it funny how the elements that brought them freedom led to their ultimate demise?
This pisses me off. It really pisses me off. Ming Hua is visibly disabled, and I could honestly see each of the other Red Lotus group as disabled in various ways too. It’s like even if we have something special that we’re good at, our being different from the “norm” will bring our downfall even though we try our best to fit in the world. Idk, or it could just be me rambling…
You probably have heard a lot about Christianity, especially when it comes to the religion’s stance on homosexuality and women’s rights. But while some the media’s narrative has often focused on the religion’s conservative, often proudly patriarchal adherents, there’s a compelling argument to be made that Jesus himself had a touch of feminist in him — at least according to the anecdotes about him related by his followers in the Bible’s New Testament.
