Am I the only one with is done with all this hatred about Baatar's parents? I left this fandom because if the ship wars, decided to give it another chance only to come back to more ship wars.
No, I totally feel you. Ship wars start from the smallest of things. Even something as simple as a headcanon about who Bataar’s parents are and I think that’s fucking ridiculous. All the ship wars need to STOP. Aggressive shippers need to take a chill pill and stay with their ship. Don’t bash ships. Don’t start arguments because you don’t like a headcanon. Don’t follow a blog you know hardcore ships your NOTP, just so you can bash it. Don’t reblog someones ship just to bash it. DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE. Don’t get all defensive because your ship isn’t canon and you can’t handle it. Everybody just needs to fucking relax and get over themselves. And if someone is offended by this, they’re obviously one of the asshole people who participate in hate. What we NEED to do is enjoy this show because this is the last time we get anything Avatar for a long time. OR FOREVER.
So, when Book 3 was first coming out, and everyone was all crazy because they thought Suyin HAD to be Sokka’s kid, my brother came up with a theory that I found even weirder. He just mentioned it in passing, but he kept coming back to it. Like, we’d be watching the show, and he’d mention it. Or we’d be talking about things, he’d mention i again. It wasn’t fully baked, and he seemed to brush it off after he said it, but I noticed he seemed to be the only one with the idea.
He kept saying how he thought out of everyone we’ve seen, he thinks Su’s husband could be Sokka’s son.
Baatar is clearly Water Tribe decent, is an architect, drawn to independent women, and I mean look at him. There’s also the fact that ‘Baatar’ seems to have a WT twist to it (sounds almost like ‘Bato’ and ‘Katara’ put together, no?)
I never gave it much thought until today’s episode. And look at Baatar Jr—You mean LITTLE SOKKA?
At first it made me nervous. I hate the idea of Su being Sokka’s because, no matter what shippers want to think, it would mean Sokka never stepped up as a Father. Unless Voldemort came and put a curse on him like ‘If you ever talk to your daughter she will die’ there is NO excuse for a parent never being a part of a child’s life. It would ruin Sokka’s character for me. But, watching today, I was finding myself thinking “Yeah, that kid’s related to Sokka….”
And then I looked up the father. Baatar Jr doesn’t look like Su; he’s the spitting image of his father.
I don’t think it’s true; I think Tenzin would have mentioned ‘My cousin’ when Korra went to the metal city. But ,I’m just throwing it out there. This kid looks like Sokka.
Maybe it’s just that Southern Water Tribe good looks though.
