I figured I don't need to write you an essay on why I ship it. You can just take a look for yourself. (There's definitely a theme here, though, and I hope it came across clear enough. The image is sort of supposed to document the progression of their canon dynamic and then I kind of just take some artistic liberties from there.)
This is a wonderful glimpse into a relationship that "could've been".. but never really had a chance.
You did a great job incorporating what happened in the series (the fight at the North Pole and being stuck together in the crystal chambers under Ba Sing Se) and creating a whole new world full of love and even a family.. had Katara and Zuko actually gotten together.
The 12 parts that you have presented in this piece work with each other perfectly and have a very natural flow. The part I feel that you took advantage of the most is when Katara and Zuko go after the man that killed Kya. After moving on from what happened between each other in the past, they were able to form a very strong relationship with each other. You did such a fantastic job putting everything together that I found myself adding my own narrations to the story.
And honestly, it's extremely believable. Could you imagine a debby-downer like Mai and an OCD freak like Aang getting together?.. the answer to that is definitely no. ^_^
I like to think Katara had feelings for both Zuko and Aang in the beginning but ultimately fell for Aang all the way in the 3rd season. Like, if you look at Zuko and Katara's relationship in the 3rd season. Yeah he did some bad shit, people didn't like him but Katara literally acted like a teenage girl would when a guy she likes fucked up. I feel like after their moment in jail she definitely fell for Zuko. Like if she didn't care about him that much or have any feelings for him at all she would have been like the others and yes dislike him but not go through so much to show how much she hated him or how i like to view it, "disappointed" in him for pocking the wrong side (at the time) This was all probably the creators teasing the hell out of us with that ship, but yeah.
More evidence of her having feelings for Zuko. She was totally clear about her feelings for Aang when they kissed before the invasion, but what happened when she and Zuko patched things up? She was confused and didn't know where her feelings were. After all, she was just a teenage girl, it wouldn't be a surprise if she had feelings for 2 people at the same time.
Aaah these are all over the place but my last piece of evidence, we see how katara treats guys she has feelings for who hurt her. Just look at her and Jet. As Toph revealed Katara definitely had feelings for Jet but after he did that stupid thing she basically treated him with the same level of anger and for a lack of better words "meanness" as she did Zuko.
I think aang and katara are cute but i will for ever love this ship XD I think the creators screwed up when they decided to not make Zuko Katara's love interest. Random fun fact: Did anyone notice how Zuko and Katara always had a moment together in the finale?
I'm sorry if i offended any Kataang shippers or people who aren't a fan of Zuko and Katara, and if you bothered reading this thank you so much XD Also it's really late so pardon what ever grammatical mistakes are there XD
