"Storytelling is a political act. It’s making sense of the world and ourselves, and like every other kind of sense-making, it’s as political as it is personal and vice-versa. There is no distinction to be made between the political and the personal. Writing of any kind is political. It’s claimsmaking regarding reality and how to interpret it. Because whenever we’re faced with these things, we’re faced with fundamental truths regarding how creation makes and unmakes the world, regarding whose voices are amplified and whose are lost, between who gets to speak and who is literally silenced."

A: TLA MEME: 5 fights [2/5]
↳ Katara vs. Azula - “There you are, filthy peasant!”

I love how beautifully animated this moment is and the way you can see the water from the parts Katara slowly unfreezes while they’re still encased in ice.
