zeus took fuck, marry, kill way too seriously
One of the greatest moments in all of Scrubs…
This scene still breaks my heart each and every single time I watch it.
Azula was a terrible, horrible person. She would have set the world aflame and laughed over the broken carcass of her brother.
But she was fourteen.
She was so ruined and twisted by her childhood and by her nation, driven to insanity by the expectations placed upon her.
Azula was bad and yet I can’t help but feel so terribly sorry for her.
"I don’t have sob stories like all of you."
SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN WHAT
"My own mother….thought I was a monster.
She was right, of course, but it still hurt.”
actually, i think one of the shows strengths is that they didn’t shy away from what a horrible tragedy this was. even though she was clearly a villain and did unspeakably awful things, this scene was still framed as sad. there was no celebrating- they just look at her sadly.
the music for the battle that leads up to this moment is sad too- it’s an epic battle, visually probably one of the biggest things done in the entire series, and they could have played it with thumping, energetic, dangerous music. but instead it’s quiet and somber. because the whole scenario is heartbreaking, and they know it.
i think the fact that a kid’s show had so much respect for it’s viewers and their ability to understand the complexity of this situation is what makes avatar great.
It was painful watching Azula throw that tantrum, but rewatching this years later makes me realize how young these characters were. They’re only children legitimately saving the entire world, and being forced to mature so fast. The way I see it, Azula was bound to “crack” but not even—she’s just a kid
She was 14 & had a mentally abusing father who expected everything from his kids and all the love, all the loving attention she ever wanted was directed at Zuko alone
This series, and in particular this scene, was a beautiful, intense, and emotional work of art. I still love it.
Maybe I’m an asshole but what went through my head with this was “yeah katara kicked ass!!”
