The most crucial part of your journey to becoming the avatar.
CAUSE AANG WOULD.
Ugh, guys, you have no idea how much I love, love, LOVE kid!Lin now after today’s episode. Especially her relationship with Aang. It must’ve been so gloriously wonderful, I mean, just seeing the way she talks about “sweet-tempered” Aang makes me all warm and fuzzy and that she MUST have very fond memories of him. Who wouldn’t? IT’S AANG! Anyway, I wanted to do something quick before I crash into bed.
I may, or may not explore more of kid!Lin’s childhood. Probably with Toph, her moments with Tenzin, her learning how to master earthbending and metalbending. All that jazz.
For now, here’s jewelry making time.
Energybending - A Comparison
While the Lionturtle and Aang use the same technique, Amon seems to be using another method.
When Aang takes away Ozai’s bending, and when the Lionturtle teaches Aang energybending, they both thouch TWO points on the body, the yin tang and the ru zhong point aka the Ajna chakra and the Anahata chakra.
When Amon ‘takes away’ LBZ’s bending, he only touches ONE point, the yin tang.
Now what could that mean?
I think Amon is faking it. That he is making people believe that he is taking away their bending, when what he is actually doing is blocking a chakra.
Here is why:
Amon touches the yin tang point aka the Ajna chakra:Location: Midway between the medial ends of the eyebrows Actions& Effects:
- Calms the spirit - insomnia, anxiety, stress.
- Frontal headache.
- Sinus issues - congestion, sinusitis.
When Uncle is teaching Zuko about lightning, he talks about bending needing a certain amount of inner calm. So, if you were to close that chakra and lock all the anxiety inside someone, making them incapable of being calm, that would effectively take someone’s bending away.
Quite clever actually, since the more terrified they are/become the more permanent this block will be. And Amon is sure laying it on thick.

I’d also like to note that he touches the back of his neck too. It’s really split second but he does.
Now if we look here….
OH MY FUCKING GOD
i’m sorry what was that about korra being poorly written
Imagine if they had animated Legend of Korra in the style of the time period it was set in… basically you’d get cubism, art deco, bauhaus, surrealism…
God, that’d be such a trip. Someone get on that fanart doublequick, yo.
