Can I take a moment to talk about that structure there? It’s that shrine-looking thing at the end of LoK/episode 12 where Korra gives Lin her bending back. 
That up there looks uncannily like a Buddhist stupa, a type of structure found throughout Asia that often houses relics of the Buddha and the bodhisattvas. There are are relic stupas, object stupas, commemorative stupas, symbolic stupas, and votive stupas, each having its own purpose.
The first thing that’s so very strange about it is that it’s surrounded by large, standing rocks. And the second thing that’s really strange about it is that Korra gives Lin back her bending at this specific spot. 
It’s in the middle of the South Pole. Why are there stones around it? Why is it colored with earthen tones, rather than the whites and blues of the Water Tribe? 
That leads me to believe that it isn’t just some random shrine.
I personally have begun to think it’s Toph’s grave, a relic to her memory and probably where she’s buried. That is, it is a stupa commemorative stupa (and perhaps even a relic stupa, if she is indeed buried there). And if that’s the case, that makes Lin getting her bending back at that particular spot especially poignant and touching because Lin is the carrier of her mother’s legacy and what better place to receive the greatest gift her mother gave her back? 
There’s also a few other things that are ridiculously striking about this. According to Wikipedia, there are 8 different kinds of stupas, each symbolic of a different moment in the Buddha’s life. This stupa in particular is bell-shaped and has no extra ornamentation. That is supposedly symbolic of the Buddha’s ascension to Nirvana. 
The stupa is also supposed to represent the four elements in total harmony as well as enlightenment:
the square base represents earth
the dome represents water
the spire (or the steps) represent fire
the lotus on the top of the spire of the stupa represents air
and the steps can be said to represent the ascension to enlightenment.
And enlightenment in Korra’s case (within context, of course)? Connecting with the Avatar Spirit and realizing that she is the Avatar and that no one can take that away from her.
So whoa. You’ve got both Toph and Lin’s relationship represented here, as well as Korra’s realization of being the Avatar here. 
That’s how Bryke intended to end the series. And damn, that’s pretty mind blowing.

So…So what you’re saying is…Toph is buried at the south pole… where she wouldn’t have been able to see…why would she want to be buried there, you ask?TOKKA!! TOKKA! TOKKA!! There’s no other explination. I’m taking this is Tokka evidence. This isn’t just Toph’s grave - it’s also Sokka’s, Lin’s step (or adopted) father.

Lin Headcannon time!

Upon the arrival of the United Forces, Lin meets up with her two younger half-brothers, admirals (or some other rank) in the UF.

Half brothers named Hakoda and Piando.

Hakoda’s signature weapon? A very familiar-looking Boomerang. Piando’s? A jet-black sword.

Lin proceeds to kick ass with her non-bending half brothers (or maybe one can waterbend and one can earth/metalbend, thus Lin can borrow their weapons).

I can hope, can’t I?

aquilldeferred:

You know what would make my life?

If Lin was fighting the Lieutenant with a sword.

A black sword.

And when Bolin/Korra/Mako/Asami asked where she got it

She smiled

And said

“Family heirloom.”

And then threw a boomerang at a mecha-tank, breaking the glass, smacking the driver in the head, and coming back to Lin’s waiting hand.

Headcannon accepted DEMANDED

lividlillies asked: Lack of a betrothal necklace on Toph is fine. The necklace is a Northern Water Tribe tradition (Sokka and Katara only realised its true purpose when they went to the N.W.T and found out their grandmother had gotten hers from Pakku), and Sokka is from the Southern. They might have different marriage customs. ^^

I’ll accept that.

But one of my favourite headcannons involves Sokka making a betrothal necklace for Toph out of space earth. So… Yeah. But you do have a valid point.

9PM

Is it ok if…

I looked for a water tribe betrothal necklace around toph’s neck when we first saw the flashbacks

And then was sad when I saw it wasn’t there?

But it’s ok tokkaneers.  She obviously wouldn’t wear that with her uniform - it would look unprofessional. And the chief of police can’t look unprofessional.

Okay, so from what I’ve heard…

Pema stole Tenzin from Lin, which to most people would scream that they could not be cousins, therefore Tokka never happened.

BUT HOLD YOUR PLATYPUS BEARS FOR ONE SECOND;

Just because Sokka is not Lin’s father, this does not mean that Tokka did not eventually happen. She could have had her daughter with another man before moving on to marry Sokka

ALSO;

Sokka and Toph could have adopted Lin (likely at an older age like 14-16), thereby making Tokka cannon and still allow tenzin and Lin (Linzin?). This is what I’m going to personally support.

Less than likely,  weird, but STILL VIABLE;

Perhaps the Avatar universe doesn’t mind dating cousins (I have an aunt and uncle who are first cousins o.O it’s really weird but can still sorta happen).

Least likely but again COULD STILL HAPPEN;

For a multitude of reasons, Tenzin and Lin may not have known they were cousins (perhaps this is how Pema separated them, by figuring out that they were cousins)

A terrible conclusion but STILL;

Sokka and Toph could have died while Lin was very young, so she never knew who her parents were until after she dated Tenzin (at which point things got slightly awkward between them)

I know I’m grasping at straws here but TOO BAD IT CAN STILL HAPPEN

To the people who don’t support this ship:

I know your views already, there will be no need to shoot me down in any way.

Bolin would approve of Tokka

"He’s sarcastic? She’s sarcastic!

He’s tough as nails? She’s tough as nails!

He’s beautiful? She’s gorgeous! 

He has bad luck? She was born blind!

IT’S MEANT TO BE!”
