To quote the-fox-bandit:

Quote (selected)
[Katara's] unrelenting idealism is just one reason why Aang is so good for her: his ridiculously pure soul is just about the only one good enough for her ridiculously high standards.

That pretty much sums it up.

Well, not entirely. Because naturally you can't sum up a soulmate connection and a lifetime of love in a single compound sentence, but it hits what, for me, is a major high point (if not THE major high point).

True Melon, there's not another ATLA-guy who'll ever live up to Katara's idealism. There's only Aang.

By the way, the same can probably be said for Aang about Katara.

Exactly.  Katara needs Aang, arguably more than Aang needs Katara (and that's saying something).  He's just this unbelievable source of lightness and love and fun and happiness in her life- the biggest source she's got.  Take that away from her and what are you left with? Darkness. Darkness peppered with only little glimmers of light.

Then again, Aang was always everybody's light... but for Katara, most especially.  His goodness, his gentle strength, she relied on that so much, just as he relied on her.

God, I love this ship.  It's so symbiotic and beautiful.

Yup, it's the truth: Katara needs Aang more than anybody else. Right from "The Boy in the Iceberg" he was the light in her life, whether she realised it or not.

I'll say though, Aang needs Katara just as much. There's just no one else who has the level of idealism, optimism and emotional involvement she has. She inspires him, she comforts him and she gives him strength and hope - and he does the same for her.

There's only Kataang.

...he was the light in her life, whether she realised it or not.

Absolute ==censored for f-bombs== truth right there, Shiney.

Aang just lit up Katara's world in a way she had never experienced before.  And it wasn't just because he was this funny, free-spirited guy, either.  It was because he got her. They just connected right away, and I don't think Katara had felt really connected with another human being in a r e a l l y long time. And suddenly there she was, going crazy-fangirl over this adorable newcomer, and it just got more intense from there.

Katara was suffocating. She was just weighed down under losing her mother and then to a lesser degree her father, and being forced to grow up too fast, and having to hide her bending, and having to be a mother to Sokka and to all the little ones in the village, and having to be responsible and mature and not waste time on frivolities...

...and all that was a good learning experience for her (and it gave her a fortitude and a deep-seated fount of compassion that made her perfect for Aang, in return), but it was still suffocating her, having to bear that up more or less by herself.  And Aang showed up and suddenly... suddenly she could breath again. Her little airbender taught her to breath and be free, and how beautifully poetic is that?

Truth.

Katara had definitely suffered a lot, before meeting Aang. She said it her self, in The Avatar Returns: "Aang has brought us something we haven't been able to have in a long time. Fun!" - Personally, I think she was talking about herself here more than anyone else. Due to her being forced to grow up (at age freakin' 8!), and all her suffering and loss, she hadn't been able to have fun in a long time - Aang gave her that! And, yeah, from there, their relationship only developed and deepened.

Also, I'm still in denial. Aang and Katara cannot really be separated. In my headcanon, Katara is able to visit the spiritworld, and I'll defend that until canon proves it right for me.

Either that, or Aang just possesses Korra's body at night and goes to have chats with Katara and the airbabies and Bumi and Kya (can't see him visiting Tenzin, for some reason).

Headcanon is great.  Headcanon is a world where the airbabies' other grandma is Ty Lee, where Aang and Katara will never be kept apart even by death, and where Bolin and Asami have absolutely been making out behind-the-scenes for the last three episodes of LoK.

And also where Aang typically looks like
<--THAT

...but that's already semi-canon anyway, seeing as that's just a moderately doctored screenshot, so I don't think it counts.

I stand by my headcanon being reasonable.

1) We know "normal" non-Avatar people are able to enter the spirit world or connect with spirits. Iroh was!
2) Katara has been married to Aang for 50-something years. He must have learned her a trick or two about meditating and spirits and stuff. And she was already a semi-spirited person before!
3) It just has to be this way.

So basically, LoK s2 being about the spirit-world, will of course prove this right. RIGHT?!

Yes. It absolutely will.

Or, at the very very least, s2 being all about the area in which Korra is the weakest will mean she will need much guidance from Aang, meaning we will have more flashbacks.  This is an acceptable substitute.

More Aang and more flashbacks is a MUST.

Personally, I'd be happy just to have more old!Katara telling stories from her life and about the Gaang, and hopefully more Tenzin, Bumi and Kya as well.

Kataang is goddAangit EVERYWHERE and all over anything ATLA-related. Seriously, they are spreading LoK with awesomeness, without even being a focus.

If I recall correctly, it was stated that we would be getting some insight on Tenzin's lineage in S2. So a Kataang flash back is definitely possible.

I know that no matter how much I prepare, if it does happen my body will not be ready. Ever.
