Reasons to love Sukka: #3 Changing their Opinion
When the two first meet, they clearly do not get along. They both have a low opinion of one another. Sokka thinks girls can’t fight at the same level as a guy, and Suki thinks he’s just a sexist pig. But, of course, things change.
Through getting to know each other the only way warriors know how, Suki and Sokka begin to form a bond. This isn’t a bond of physical attraction. It’s a bond of mutual respect. Yes, they are both good looking, and both find each other nice to look at, but their relationship isn’t based solely on that. Their relationship starts on respect, something that is much deeper and much stronger than something superficial like physical attraction.
Sokka finds out through her that women can be strong. They can do anything a man can do. He learns that everything he once believed in is wrong. He’s able to see the world in a whole new light thanks to Suki.
Suki discovers that she’s wrong about him. She finds that he isn’t really there to just make fun of them and feed his sexist ways. Through him, she discovers that people can change, along with herself. She learns to respect him instead of just finding him as an annoyance that belittles her.
During this moment, there isn’t really a romantic relationship forming, just a relationship of respect forming. Though, of course, they do realize, like in the picture, that they can have fun together. They find that they enjoy each other’s company. The two can be serious with each other and playful at the same time, something that is very important in any relationship, not just romantic.
On a personal opinion, I feel it’s at this point that Suki’s crush starts forming. From respect comes love. Sokka just forms a massive amount of respect for Suki, much more respect than he shows anyone. But I feel it’s important to note that their relationship isn’t just physical attraction. There is so much more to their relationship than just liking to look at each other. There’s respect, which is something that keeps the relationship strong.
closer images of some of the prints I did for APE. these are cleaner versions of the korra brush image i did a while back, as well as a new one for book two. i made the second one half way through the season, so… some pretty prominent characters are missing…. ANYWAY, these are 9 x 12
What is it with the Avatar’s looking adorable even when angry?
