to this day, I think Azula is probably one of the most interesting villains. Ever.
Honestly, this scene made me feel choked up, because Azula obviously craved her Mother’s love, like Zuko had, but because she was so much more taken under her Father’s ‘wing’ as it were, she became a twisted version of who she would have been.
And this scene. This fucking scene.
Just take a step back and think:
Her Mother is a hallucination here.
Azula is bitterly saying ‘Even you fear me.’ And back at Ember Island, you learn that, even though she was a tiny terror, she was hurt because her Mother was scared of her.
And the one thing that breaks Azula is the fact that a part of her knows exactly what her Mother would say. And she’d tell her she loves her.
And she wouldn’t be angry, or disappointed. She’d be sad.
Oh my god i just realized The ‘Heart’ symbol for Homestuck
See how it’s only half colored in and its separated from the other half. Dirk’s ‘other half’ was Jake, and they had a particularly messy breakup. Nepeta gave her heart to Karkat, only to be rejected. Meulin’s redboyfriend Kurloz hurt her by turning her deaf in the great honk. Heart players give a part of their love/affection to their significant other, only to be hurt in return.
