That face right there. You know what face that is? That’s the face you get when you say something bad about Toph Bei Fong in front of her daughter. If you ever see it for real, take a moment and take it in as much as you can.
Because it might be the last thing you ever see.
(artist unknown. Anybody know?)
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
