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 really, this just goes to show that awesome guys sometimes have to make tough decisions about love that doesn't make them less awesome (I HATE the Tenzin bashers, really this relationship is one of the most realistic in the show). Men don't always run off to the younger women because they wanna have sexitiems, sometimes these relationships are substantial and long lasting.

Honestly, I feel like Linzin is similar to Zutara in that it's intriguing and initially probably very passionate but that it wouldn't have lasted because the characters can't give one another what they need most. I LOVE PEMZIN. I love how passionately Pema seems to love him and the vibrant children they've created. Tenzin and his kids is also instant comedy, which is a bonus.

My headcanon for the Pemzin love story is just so beautiful.

Lin and Tenzin have been together since their late teens.

Tenzin has sort of vaguely known Pema for awhile because she is the daughter of Teo and Ty Lee, but it isn't until he returns to Republic City after some time abroad and settles in on Air Temple Island that they really get to know each other.

Pema, like all Air Acolytes, trains in the airbending forms although she obviously is not a bender herself, and after Tenzin returns to ATI, he takes over the training of the Acolytes from his father (who obvs has important Avatar stuff to do).

Pema quickly becomes one of the top students, not because she's so naturally gifted though with parents like Teo and Ty Lee, how could she not be? but because she works so hard, in order to impress Tenzin.  Despite herself, she finds herself falling for her much older teacher.

By this point, Lin and Tenzin, though they do genuinely care for each other (Lin probably more than Tenzin), are mostly together out of familiarity and habit.  As insane as it is, Tenzin feels... something... for the pretty young Acolyte who's half his age, but... well, she's half his age.

After many lengthy talks with Avatar Aang, who always did have a soft spot for Teo's youngest daughter Pema finally works up the nerve to confess her love to Tenzin.

Following a lengthy struggle with himself, Tenzin finally has to submit to the inevitable. Despite the age difference between them, despite his long-standing relationship with Lin, despite all the things about it that don't make sense... he's in love with this plucky, sweet, sarcastic young woman, and there's really nothing he can do about it at this point.  He calls things off with Lin.

And then... Pemzin happens.  And it's amazing. And it makes both of them happier than they've ever been.

And in the background, Avatar Aang strokes his beard and just grins.

Melon Lord, this is my new headcanon!

Also, the idea of Pema being Teo and Ty Lee's daughter is genius! Not that you ever mentioned it or anything.

Aang really would do something like that. And I can imagine this happening between Aang and Katara whenever Pemzin finally happened:

"What's with that smile, Aang?"

"Smile? I have no idea what you're talking about, dear."

"You knew this was going to happen, didn't you?"

"I just trusted my Avatar instincts. ;)"



Fire is the element of power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will, and the energy and drive to achieve what they want.

Melon write that headcanon into a fic! Now!

Also, obviously, Pema is Ty Lee and Teo's daughter. She has to be! (This needs to be spread ALL over the internet, in the hope Bryke someday discovers it, and makes it canon).

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.
