Appa's relationships | Avatar Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Suki pushed for equalism so when sokka found this out, he immediately broke up with suki because of the close connection he had with. This page is comprised of Toph Beifong's relationships with other characters in the When Iroh sought Aang, Sokka and Toph for help in rescuing Zuko, Toph. Sokka and Toph *this is me in a relationship and when I hold hands*.
Instead of letting her blindness control her, she adapted to it and would play a huge role in helping restore peace to the world with Team Avatar. Contrary to the mother figure which Katara represented in Team Avatar, Toph had a rebellious nature about her and very outspoken.
She even showed affection differently than other female characters, by punching one on the shoulder. Toph was a natural-born leader, who truly found enjoyment in bossing other people around according to Sokka. In fact, next to Sokka, she was the least spiritual bender on Team Avatar.
Ironically her name means Supported Lotus, giving the impression she was one who needed to be looked after and protected. Protection, however, was the last thing she needed, learning to look out for herself from a very young age. Despite being a tough and outspoken character in Avatar: The Last Airbender series. The original design was kept seen in the opening credits of the show and used in the Ember Isles mockery play of Team Avatar.
Growing up with a disability in such an affluent family meant she was overprotected to the gills. Toph refused to be dependent on others, running away from home the first time while only 6-years-old. She would discover the badgermoles and become the third person in the history of the Earth Kingdom to be trained by them in the art of Earthbending.
The second time she would run away from home would be around the age of 12 to save Aang which would lead to her becoming a member of Team Avatar. Toph would later be the one to help teach Aang her special Earthbending skills, taking his mastery of Earthbending to a whole new level.
She had a teen crush on Sokka, but would never act on it due to him being unavailable. In the period between Avatar: Her first daughter Lin was born 20 years after the Hundred Year War. When she first began metalbending, Toph needed to touch the actual metal in order to manipulate it.
Avatar The Last Airbender: Crazy Things You Never Knew About Toph
Can the wrong advice lead him to the right girl? This particular story was commissioned by Kifo Sotri if you want to commission stories or art from me, head to my Deviantart to check my prices and let me know if you're interested in anything!
But it was also longer yet than my long-shot, It Had To Be You, so, in the face of that particular problem, I figured I'd split it up in four chapters.
I'll make sure to post them on a weekly basis. The story is sort-of canon compliant, I have incorporated some elements and characters from the comics, but there's also some characters who are absent because I really didn't know what to make of them or what to do with them, so they're just not here. Consider this story to be set in some of my most wishful scenarios for Azula post-comics, where she manages to co-exist with her brother and the Gaang without too much trouble, for reasons explained within the story.
In any case, I hope you enjoy it! He took a swig from the drink before slamming down the half-empty glass on the counter. His companion glanced at him, knowing it was the sign of an incoming new rant. There's something wrong with you, maybe many things wrong with you…" "I mean, who the hell gets dumped by his girlfriend for someone who's all doom and gloom?
I don't get it!
The Love Adviser Chapter 1, an avatar: last airbender fanfic | FanFiction
I don't get what she sees in him. If you did then maybe it would explain why you have trouble keeping women with you, don't you think? People will make jokes of me for the rest of history, you know? They'll remember Aang for saving the world, Katara for being a great waterbender, your brother for being the Fire Lord that changed things, Toph for learning to metalbend and me… for losing every single one of my girlfriends, time after time.
What the hell is it with me, really? Am I that bad a catch? At least you're fun company. Him, on the other hand…" "I know, right? He's just grumpy and upset and takes everything too seriously!
She's not exactly the most fun person in the world, is she? But I thought that was precisely why she liked me. It's one thing for you to be interested in a girl, but it's another thing for you to be interested in a girl who's compatible with you. As far as I can see, you and that Kyoshi Warrior had next to no compatibility.
Perhaps the Water Tribe Princess was your first love, and you lost her under unfair circumstances, but the Kyoshi Warrior wasn't the same as her. When you went to Suki you were looking for safety, stability, but once you found it you took it for granted.
She was looking for the same thing, but while you found it in her, she didn't find it in you. She finds it more easily in my brother, whom she sees all the time, than she does in you, whom she sees every… what, six months? So what could you expect but another failed relationship? She held her head high, the drink in her hand steady, until her eyes flickered towards him and she saw what she could only interpret as affront in his face.
That was something she wasn't supposed to do anymore. But Sokka shook his head. Every last word," he said.
Azula gritted her teeth. I'm supposed to lie to make people feel better from time to time, according to Zuzu," she said, shrugging. I did warn you that I would make a lousy drinking partner in these circumstances," she said, setting her glass down on the counter. Azula raised her eyebrows.
Her confusion only increased when Sokka's eyes suddenly gleamed with what she thought was, perhaps, hope? It's why I messed up! I mean, I did think Suki was beautiful and amazing, but maybe we just don't have as many things in common as we should and… we're just not that compatible.
That's how it is! And… and you knew it. Sokka smiled, to her surprise. It's not like you're some love guru or anything…" he commented. I always have," she said, picking up her glass again and moving it so the liquid would spin in circles. Then again, I have made my wrong assessments before… but if you think I'm right about you, I just might be right about you.
I know it's uncomfortable to admit it, but it is how it is. Eh, sure," said Sokka, shrugging. I don't need someone to tell me all sorts of sweet things, I need someone who's as ruthless, inconsiderate and cruel as you!
You're in luck, I guess," said Azula, surprised. Was she still cruel these days? Yeah, surely that, too. Sokka was bringing up some of her traits that made most people frown, yet he did it with such enthusiasm and fondness that she couldn't help but wonder if he shared a few of them himself. I'm the only person who could organize and lead an invasion into the Fire Nation that would have been successful if you hadn't gotten in the way!
How is it a great accomplishment if you failed? Toph and Suki took down the airships my father led to the Earth Kingdom, not you," said Azula, still amused. Well, then, you're not the conqueror of Ba Sing Se because you didn't execute every single move of your plan! I took hold of the Dai Li by my own power, something you never achieved yourself," she said, proudly. That's what you're doing," he said, scrutinizing her with a sharp glare.
Well, you've always been the smartest member of your group, no doubt, but here I hoped you wouldn't be able to think clearly tonight," she said, with a smile.
I thought you'd be sadder about it, really," she said. You're far better company than him, and just as easy to tease…" "Huh. That's probably the nicest thing you've ever said to me," said Sokka, smiling. You're unlikely to spend the rest of your life alone," she whispered. See, you're nicer than what most people think!
Azula cringed at the contact. Sokka chuckled and touched her glass with his own, a pleased grin on his face as he turned on his stool. Azula raised an eyebrow as he sat facing her.
You're a great adviser to Zuko as it is, so…" "Zuko pays me. What can I expect to gain from this?
Um… I'll have to think about that. Uh, how about boomerang-throwing lessons, eh? Nope, that wouldn't do. Azula's ears perked at that. They both knew Azula's current circumstances were touchy. She didn't have the best reputation, and was feared and revered throughout the world for her actions during the war and after it.
She had become a public menace for a few years, too, until she had helped Zuko dismantle a genuine threat to his rule. She had been granted a pardon after that, but it was only effective in name: Zuko would keep her confined in the Fire Nation Palace, for her own safety.
Toph Beifong's relationships
Azula didn't admit it, but she did feel safe there. It was basically another form of imprisonment, but she was sure it couldn't be worse than the angry mobs she might deal with if she dared set foot on the Earth Kingdom again.
She didn't acknowledge her feelings as fear, but she still was reluctant to step out of her comfort zone: Nevertheless, Azula had rebellious instincts, especially towards people whose authority she refused to acknowledge fully. One of such people was her own brother. What if she left this place and proved, with Sokka's help, that she could fend for herself outside the Fire Nation without an issue?
She wouldn't need Zuko's protection anymore. She would be free to settle down elsewhere, somewhere that wouldn't remind her constantly that she had failed where her brother had succeeded. Somewhere that would help her forget her sorrows and stop envying Zuko for obtaining the happiness and triumphs she had dreamt to find for her own life. So… could she travel with Sokka and his friends, perhaps? Nobody would dare attack her if she was around them, surely.
In fact, she didn't know if anyone would want to do it at all: If they knew she was helping Zuko now, working as his adviser, they might not be compelled to attack her on sight. Does your freedom sound like a better offer? You'd keep an eye on me. And I'd have to come back here whenever my brother needs me because, let's face it, he wouldn't know how to run this nation without me," said Azula, shrugging and drinking what was left of her glass. But I don't see how I'm supposed to help you, not really," she said.
Because I'll have you know…" "Nah, I'm perfectly capable of starting a relationship on my own," said Sokka. And if you have any ideas on someone who might suit me, that'd be great too! I can't think of anyone for you. He was her friend, had been for a few years now. She had especially grown fond of him because, as she had already told him, he was easy to mess with: Sokka had been quite grateful for Azula's involvement when she had helped save the Fire Nation, for she had saved his beloved ex-girlfriend too.
The Avatar, Sokka and Katara had failed to arrive on time, but fortunately nothing had gone wrong thanks to what Azula had done. With Zuko's pardon, his friends had opened up to her slowly, but the one she got along with the best was Sokka, by far. Katara was still distrusting, Aang was far too busy, and Sokka actually laughed at Azula's jokes, and at her constant pranking of Zuko. He had joined her in several of her pranking attempts, and they had often bonded over being at the receiving end of Zuko's angry rants.
They were also some of the people whose advice he prized the most, that wasn't to be forgotten. Whenever serious problems arose, problems the Avatar had little understanding of, Zuko would always turn to them. Sokka wasn't his full-time adviser as Azula was, but whenever he dropped by at the Fire Nation Palace Zuko would ask for his opinion on political matters he had yet to resolve. It was surprising that Sokka's advice often lined up with Azula's, a fact Zuko had found somewhat disturbing, but the two of them had only taken it as a sign that they were the only people around these parts who had actual common sense.
She wasn't sure she'd feel safe, traveling with him… she had the feeling that, if something messy were to happen, she'd end up being the one who would have to save the both of them. Then again, she really was the best firebender in the world. Despite she didn't want to cause unnecessary trouble, she would unleash her power if she needed to defend herself and her traveling companion.
That was something Zuko wouldn't hold against her, wasn't it? She sure hoped so. Sounds good to you? This could be the biggest mistake of her life or the best thing she'd done in forever. Only time would tell which one it would be. He was waiting by the city's outskirts, as he had promised he would be on the letter he had sent to her with a messenger hawk. She saw him through the airship's window, and her heart raced as they began descending on the spot that had been cleared for their landing.
There was a ridiculous smile on Sokka's face, Azula realized, but the sight of it did little to ease her anxiety.
She glanced around herself warily, as if fearing some sort of enemy might pop out of the bushes or so. Sokka patted her shoulder. I thought, given the message you sent me, that you wanted my advice…? I'm supposed to tell you whether your relationships have future or not, not to meet with your girlfriends!
He turned to the soldiers now, who looked at him with uncertainty. She'll be fine with me, I promise! Their job had been to escort the Princess, but she was somewhat terrifying and they doubted she'd need them too badly. They were probably better off taking a step back and leaving her to the Water Tribesman's care. Sokka clasped Azula's shoulder and led her towards the road that would guide them to the city. She walked somewhat uneasily, glancing about herself to make sure nothing would happen.
Nobody will attack you around here, nobody should. Republic City is a place for new beginnings for everyone, you see…" "I've heard that's its catchphrase. Funny idea, opening a city for people from all over the world to live in.
Are you sure that's a wise thought? It could be a way to start teaching people to get over their differences, don't you think? Water Tribe and Earth Kingdom people might be able to live together, but when you add Fire Nation people to the mix…" "You know, most people living in Republic City right now are Fire Nation citizens," said Sokka, raising his eyebrows. Well, they might feel at peace around these parts," said Azula, shrugging. But I do think you might be surprised. People aren't quite as awful as you might expect them to be.
Passersby barely noticed them, and those who did see them didn't seem to care about who she was regardless. Republic City wasn't particularly remarkable as of now, though.
It was a small city, with a few tall buildings, but it didn't make a great impression on Azula as it was. Still, it wasn't as hostile towards her as she had dreaded it might be.
Even if it wasn't a particularly remarkable location, at least she wasn't being pelted by insults and death threats… Sokka started by giving her a tour of the major locations of the city, and Azula followed him dutifully wherever they went, her golden eyes glaring and analyzing everything in sight. She didn't think she'd be moving in here anytime soon, but it wasn't a bad place altogether, she concluded. At last, they reached the establishment where they'd have lunch. Sokka led her inside gallantly, and he pulled out a chair for her once they reached an empty table.
I hope," he said. Do I know her? Azula seemed genuinely surprised by that. You thought it was someone you knew? You two always seemed rather close," said Azula. Well… I don't know, actually," he said, blinking blankly. No wonder you can't get romance right, Wolf Boy," said Azula, with a smirk.
Sokka's outburst stopped before it began when he noticed the latest arrival was here. He turned his head around and stood up, smiling at the dark-haired girl behind him.
The girl smiled awkwardly. But I thought we were going to…" she said, looking at Azula with uncertainty. Sokka glanced from one to the other a few times before extending a hand towards the chair next to his. The girl eyed Azula before sitting down, unsure as to who she was and why she was studying her with her gaze so intently… "Uh, who's this…? You don't mind, do you? Azula had to hold back the urge to snort.
He grimaced as Azula raised an eyebrow.
So you're not dating? The odds were already awful for him and this girl, and they barely had a relationship to begin with. And how did you two meet, if I may ask? I'm from the Southern Water Tribe too," said the girl. Azula hummed with apparent interest. As ever, playing the hero," said Azula, with a smirk.
It's my thing, apparently," he said. Azula shook her head. Niyok glanced from one to the other with uncertainty. I've switched to working in an easier establishment, though," she said. It's what I've always thought," said Niyok. What was it with this girl and her relentless questioning? Sokka smiled awkwardly as a waiter approached to take their order, and they conveyed it to him quickly. Something told Sokka that Niyok wasn't about to pass Azula's test… So far the Princess looked utterly unimpressed by her.
Sokka just asked me to come," Azula said, simply. Niyok raised her eyebrows. Which is surprisingly often, I'll add…" "Hey! The dangerous voice tone of the Princess's made both Sokka and Niyok recoil. Clearly she wasn't about to accept being berated by the Water Tribe girl… "Well, a job well done, isn't it? Considering I actually did want to sound mean. I guess I forgot to introduce myself, did I? Too closely, some would say…" "T-too closely…? Don't say stuff she'll misunderstand! I'm only telling the truth," she said, with a pleased smirk.
You made it sound as if…" Sokka started, grimacing with uncertainty. Azula looked at him with expectation. Niyok looked at him with disbelief. Why didn't you tell me that before…?! Sokka gritted his teeth and inched away from her. I really am not! My heart is broken, not only that you'd lie but that you'd do it so poorly," she said, dramatically.
She stood up, glaring angrily at Sokka. And I thought you were a good man!
- Kataang Didn’t Work (and that’s okay)
- Sokka's relationships
Sokka's eyes were wide. The door to the establishment closed and Sokka remained in the same position, his eyes closed, his hands halfway stretched towards where Niyok had stood, his eyebrow twitching as the droplets of water slid slowly down his face. He only moved when he heard the unequivocal sound of laughter coming from his remaining companion, and he glared viciously at her for it.
Azula only continued to laugh. Are you kidding me?! I really didn't think she'd throw water at you! Sokka accepted it angrily, snarling at her before wiping his face with it. Seriously, what the hell?! And yet… this is was your first date? That was the fastest I've lost a girl, and that's saying something. Evidently, I know because she's yet again your typical stability-providing girl instead of someone you truly can bond with in every level," said Azula, crossing her arms over her chest.
You would have been bored with her eventually. You wouldn't need to be around her, you'd just visit her once in a blue moon like you would with Suki, and then you'd be at a loss when she ends up in the arms of some other guy who's head-over-heels in love with her. But when she realized she was just that girl on the side that you visit when you don't have anything better to do, she would have probably broken things off with you and you would have ended up in a worse state than you already are.
