So I know everyone wants Sokka to be Lin’s father figure (if not her father), but I really want that role to go to Aang. I JUST LIKE THE IDEA OF IT A LOT, OKAY?
I THINK YOU MIGHT WANNA CHANGE TOPH WITH…
YES YES YES we should do shit like this more there’s more space to respond in actual posts lol
Ok as a kid Lin would love the fact that Aang is the Avatar. She’s challenge him to arm wrestling matches all the time and she would ACTUALLY WIN. He humors her a lot but he does take her seriously when her mother doesn’t.
Ugh like when Toph gets to be too much for Lin to handle (because we know they got into epic fights once Lin got older lol) she just goes to Aang and is like UGH MY MOTHER AANG HOW and he’s just like…”lol wanna see the marble trick again.” And he calms her down and gets her to break away from her earthbender habits/lifestyle and just be ~FREE
I need to know everything about everyone in these shows Rachel.
OMG YES HANNAH, I LOVE THIS.
Aang is the serenity to Lin’s energy and exuberance, but they can also just be stupid and fun together. They swapped dumb jokes, and sometimes Aang took Lin for a ride on an air scooter or made earth angels with her. I see young Lin as being very tough but also quite carefree and innocent from his influence.
He calms her down when she gets angry at her mother, and sometimes he even acts as a mediator when they argue. She goes to him when she’s having boy troubles, even if said boy is his own son.
I HAVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT AANG AND YOUNG LIN. Brychael should publish a book with every single headcanon they have ever established.
LMAO CAN YOU IMAGINE LIN TRYING TO GET BOY ADVICE FROM AANG ABOUT TENZIN
oh holy FUCK she would be like “ok he can’t know it’s Tenzin I just have to be discrete about this ok here it goes…So Aang there’s this boy -“
”- IT’S TENZIN RIGHT HE’S IN LOVE WITH YOU AH YOUNG LOVE I SAY GO FOR IT :D”
And Aang would teach her to have fun with earthbending and oh god he would be SO PROUD when she kicks his ass for the first time. And what if Lin has Aang’s sense of humor sometimes or just she has a soft spot for guys like him (COUGHBOLINCOUGH) and she cracks reluctant smiles at dumb jokes just because of him.
If Brychael did write down every headcanon I would keep it as a bible. Read passages each day, write sermons…oh wait fuck I pretty much do that anyway THIS IS FANDOM.
IT WOULD GO EXACTLY LIKE THAT, OH MY WORD. Aang would be so supportive on Lin’s side of the whole ordeal. As for Tenzin’s he’d probably be mixed between “son, you should try doing this” and “gah you were just like me aka you have no idea what you’re doing.” XD BUT THIS NEEDS TO BE WRITTEN, HOMG, IF ONLY FOR THE AWKWARDNESS.
And Lin would practice with her mom, and Toph can feel the slight variation in Lin’s bending and say something like “Your Uncle Aang has gotten to you, hasn’t he?” And Lin will be so proud to say “Yes, he has.” Aang’s lightness, fluidity, and delicate touch would influence her metalbending towards what it’s become in the present.
I like the idea that Toph notices that Lin and Tenzin like each other because lol heartbeats but I also like the idea that once Aang realizes it he’s like “TOPH TOPH OUR BABIES ARE IN LOVE!!” and Toph gives them so much shit for it while Aang is awkwardly supportive
“you kids need anything? snacks? drinks? a condom? I’m not a regular Dadvatar, I’m a cool Dadvatar.”
And omg Toph WOULD NOTICE the difference in bending and Lin would be all Spider-manning it up around Republic with the wires and Toph would one day be like “WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU GO I COULDN’T SEE YOU” then she realizes oh
Can I just confess that I love the character design for Lin?
I mean she has that sharp, defined, striking features that definitely make her look very harsh and uncompromising (which is of course fitting for her personality and role as the chief of police and Toph’s powerful…
