it's okat that you ship zutara,but you have to stop underestimating aang because of his age and non-violent persona.he doesn't have a crush on katara.he hadn't had a crush on katara since CoD.He loves katara, pure and simply. he always struggles with his hole as a savior but he never doubted his love for katara. you can always doubt HER love for him, but understand that katara is his anchor,and he refuses to let her go. More than peace,more than anything, aang want's katara to love him back.

Oh no, I have no doubt Aang loves Katara, and I have no doubt Katara loves Aang, but I don’t think that either of them are in love with each other. The love Katara shows Aang is almost always maternal, she’s a mother figure to him throughout the series, heck there’s even an episode where Aang himself acknowledges that she mothers him (tldr: oedipus complex, oedipus complexoedipus complex).

Meanwhile, he sees a pretty girl who looks after him, and he mistakes that for romantic love. I feel like the most telling moment for Aang in that sense is during EIP when even after she says very emphatically that she’s confused and that it isn’t the right time, he kisses her anyway. He’s twelve and he has this idea that romantic love is simple, (“we kissed at the invasion and I thought we’d be together”) that any anxiety can be solved with a kiss.

I have no doubt that with time, Kataang would become a relationship I could stomach, certainly I love Tenzin and I think that perhaps when they were in their late teens to early twenties, Aang would have the emotional maturity to deal with that kind of relationship. But no matter how many muscles they piled onto him in the finale, he remains a twelve (maybe thirteen) year old boy, and he is immature. His love for Katara was selfish, possessive and childlike, because he is young. 

All of the characters in Avatar had to grow up fast, but I think of all of them, Aang had the least of that. Katara virtually had to bring up Sokka, becoming the mother figure very young, and she projects that same mothering onto Aang. Sokka had to step up and be the warrior and hunter, Toph you could argue had an easier life, but her emotional maturity was beyond her years, she understands people and the way they work from a lifetime of observation. And really, do I even have to discuss Zuko? Aang had a childhood, at least initially, the first responsibility Aang had to shoulder, he ran away from, and the entire series is a coming of age process for him, he’s young, it’s both a virtue and a flaw in him. He is kind and compassionate and he gives a lot of himself, but he is also selfish in a way that only a twelve year old boy could be, (runs away from being the Avatar, won’t give up Katara for the sake of the Avatar state, expects Katara to love him after he kisses her with no other explanation, refuses to kill Ozai against the wishes of four Avatar reincarnations) which to me, indicates that he is not in love with Katara.

Certainly he loves her, and he might be in love with the idea of her, but the final kiss was the result of a badly timed, badly developed relationship that seemed slap dash and a quick fruition to all of Aang’s pining, but completely disregarded Katara’s own development and growth. 

If it had to happen, I would have liked to see Kataang implied, maybe, just them standing on the balcony together would have been fine. I would have liked to see Aang recognising the issues with recovering from the war. I would have liked to see Katara returning to the South Pole to rebuild her village, or continuing her studying as a healer. I would have liked to see her personal development acknowledged, and not seen her reduced to a love interest in the finale.

Maybe Kataang was an inevitability, and I’m sure in a few years time, they would have been in a position to have a healthy relationship, but the time for it was not at the end of season three, for either character.

FINALLY GOD DAMMIT YES I DID IT and I am kind of so proud of myself, even though it didn’t turn out the way I wanted to and I didn’t include Yue, who I wanted to be here but who I was way too lazy and tired to draw.also background… I am awful at drawing backgrounds, and I can’t wait until I will finally improve enough to make my background look good enough.I wanted to draw Harry Potter-Avatar crossover for such a long time, and I have much more ideas with characters crossovers, but obviously I can’t draw it normally-_- But still, I am happy I finally did this one^^It just popped out in my head when I re-watched ATLA..also while getting ‘quite a few’ messages from people complaining about me not drawing Harry Potter as frequently as I used to..*sorry about that*So, now about houses.I honestly can’t see Zuko anywhere else but on Gryffindor. He quite reminds me of Sirius considering all his family mass, so he’s a true Gryffindor, not to mention he’s so hot headed:3Sokka, in my head, would definitely be on Ravenclaw, because even despite his dorky attitude (sometimes), I guess he’s actually the smartest in the group (when it comes to all those planning-map reading-strategy stuff), which, I guess, is quite Ravenclaw.Aang is Hufflepuff. I didn’t even doubt it a single minute, even though he’s brave enough to be in Gryffindor. He’s just.. Aang is Aang, a little weirdo<3I had quite a hard choice on Katara, because..well she’s smart enough for Ravenclaw, and brave and caring and has enough quialities for Gryffindor.. so I wasn’t sure and this choice was a little bit random. But still, I am all for Mighty Katara on Gryffindor:DToph.. I also had quite a problem with sorting her, but still.. she’s kind of royalty, she’s the Melon Lord.. so, Slytherin:3So is Azula whom I didn’t even think a minute. Azula is probably the TRUE Slytherin.mm Ty Lee is Hufflepuff but mostly because she loves pink,(no I am not serious here)  haha, I am not sure about it. But I like her being on Hufflepuff the most.Suki is Gryffindor. She’s the warrior, after all:3 idk idk I guess she would also fit on Ravenclaw with Sokka, but I went for Gryffindor.Mai….I wasn’t sure if I should have her on Slytherin or on Ravenclaw, but ended up in Slytherin.. and I am honestly not sure why, except for her not showing any emotion to random people, only for the chosen ones, like Zuzu<3Jet… oh Jet… this choice was kind of random, too.Also Appa… This Appa was to be made out of paper, Aang just playing with it using his magic, but I totally failed making him looking like he’s made out of paper. aanddd I forgot to colour Sokka’s boomerang. -____-anyway, I wrote a big clumsy terrible description, so now I will just leave it like this..Hope you’ll like it:3PS: 10 points to your house if you noticed Zuko’s To do list.10 more if you can read Ty Lee’s bubble and one more detail nearby.
