Teo and Ty Lee. I ship them. Hard.

That fic is genius. I love me some Pemzin fic (and there just isn't enough).

Do you guys want me to repost "When Tenzin Met Pema" from the old forum?  I was thinking about it since there are so many new folks here.

I'm not hardcore shipping them yet, just because they haven't been developed yet.

But it's like a powder keg waiting for a spark. I could absolutely see myself going full throttle with a little more love form the writers.
The best posts I ever made were the ones I didn't make.

Both of you are making good points.

I hate to say it happened to me, but it did.

I was in a slowing growing 'just OK' relationship with someone sophomore year in college, and along comes a wonderful freshman, who turned my head in an instant not just physically, but spiritually, and philosophically as well.

And nearly 40 years later I am still with her. I GET what happened to Tenzin.

And this is only adding fuel to the fire of me calling you Tenzin.

...that is appropriate for so many reasons.

I actually don't think Pema was deliberately encouraging Korra at all.  Between Linzin already being on the outs at that point, Pema's "oh, shoot" expression in the kitchen scene in 10, and the fact that Pema had—by her own admission—waited for quite a while, I didn't interpret it that way.

Now, the "wrong woman" comment does sound presumptuous at first blush.  But in context, I think she was supposed to be implying that by then, it was obvious to everyone that Lin and Tenzin weren't all that compatible.  (And...yeah; I can see how they wouldn't be all that compatible.)

If I fault anything she did there, it's that she maybe didn't make things clear enough.  Or underestimated Korra's sheer impulsiveness.
I keep:  Lin Beifong's resolve, Asami Sato's integrity, and Bolin's endearing inability to lie.

I agree with you there.  Pema had no idea how her words would be interpreted by brash, impulsive Korra. Pema truly is an Air Acolyte down to the heart of her. She was trying to offer the perspective of her own experience (which, from what I heard, seemed to be "In the course of true love, patience and a willingness to put yourself out there can go a long way" rather than "Go steal him!" as Korra interpreted it), and having very little frame of reference for just how Korra tends to take things like this, she just wasn't as careful as she could have been in how she framed her advice.

And let's face it, from Pema's perspective, Tenzin was with the wrong woman when he was with Lin, considering that at the time Pema gave that advice, she and Tenzin had been married for at least eleven years and had three children with a fourth on the way.

That, too.  I can see how it could be retrospect, as opposed to what she was actually thinking back then.

Here's how I've always imagined it:  She's this little Acolyte who probably joined up as a teenager (kind of liking the idea of her as a TyTeo kid, by the way).  Maybe she's even had this little schoolgirl crush on Tenzin from day one, but has been trying to put it out of her mind; he's twice her age, he's attached, and—for all that they do interact—she generally considers him out of reach.

This probably goes on for years.  It becomes increasingly clear that Tenzin and Lin aren't all that compatible.  (Love their dynamic as it is, but...let's face it: they wouldn't be.)  And Pema starts realizing that her schoolgirl crush has turned into honest-to-spirits falling for the guy. 

She keeps biting her tongue for a while.  But finally, it gets to be too much:  She blurts something to Tenzin about how if things don't work out between him and Lin, she's totally interested.

And sure enough, things don't.  (I actually about half suspect Lin was the one to call it off.)  And the rest is history.

Isn't the idea of Pema being a Teo Lee baby strangely appealing? I ship the two of them like burning, but the idea of them actually being the other set of grandparents to the new Air Nation... that's oddly gorg.

Anyway, I love your headcanon of how Pemzin came to be. I actually really want to write a miniseries someday (though god knows when I'll have the time, with all my other ff projects clouding up my head) about a series of conversations between Aang and Pema that ultimately led to her gaining the courage to be honest about her feelings.  Because I just have this funny feeling that Aang and Pema got along famously.  But that's not exactly a shocker, because Aang gets along with everybody.  But I still think he was probably the one sitting back with a smug little smirk on his face when Tenzin and Pema finally got together.  It was hilarious, because for the past few years, he'd called every relationship twist between the Gaang's kids dead wrong, and everybody (especially Katara) had been teasing him about it non-stop, but when it came to his youngest son's love, he had it called from the start, and got to be quietly smug while everybody else (by which I mean Sokka) was just sitting there going "0.0 Linzin broke up? Whuuu...?"

Do we know anything about the sort of relationship Pema and Tenzin had before they got together? Like, how long had they known each other or anything like that?
