Zukaang
« on: January 31, 2014, 08:19:04 AM »
I like the idea of it as a big eff you to Zutara. Somewhere in my files I have some dialog between Zuko and Katara where they're both confessing their romantic feelings . . . for Aang. And this ship was implied way more than Zutara ever was. But when it comes to actually seeing them in a romantic situation . . . I really don't see it. And the age difference bothers me a lot. Still, they're my biggest brotp ever. I love the parallels between them and how they worked so well together in The Blue Spirit and the development of their friendship in The Firebending Masters. And then their hug in the finale . . . their platonic relationship is just the best ever. Not to mention, it's a major plot point in the show. So their relationship deserves a thread of its own. Let's discuss it.

yeah as a plotonic relationship, they're  pretty great. As a romantic one? No! Even even if I was cool with that sort of things, I just couldn't see it happening.

I think Zukaang as a strong brotherly relationship/friendship is ideal. You see how far that goes in the graphic novel The Promise at the end at Iroh's teahouse.

And Iroh II, at Aang's statue at the battle at the end of Korra Season 1, he shows his own respect and trust for Aang the Avatar and thus for Korra too. That HAS to be passed from generation to generation from parent to child.

I crack ship it, but that's as far as I'll go. XD

I remember someone on the older site, KF, had a sig that showed Aang and Zuko bumping into each other in The Firebending Masters. And the text said "Zukaang. More canon than Zutara." Nothing against Zutara or anything, I grew to like the ship a few years ago even though I think fans are reaching, but I thought the sig was hilarious cuz it's kinda true. XD


Extraordinarily awesome sig by Zevinja!!
