The left is Michelangelo Buonarroti
‘s “Pieta” which depicts THE Virgin Mary holding Jesus after his crucifixion. Not his rumored beau Mary Magdalene, but his mother.
The right is Aang getting almost killed by Azula in “Avatar the Last Airbender.”
I’m just saying. This is not a romantic pose and is one of many instances where Katara is portrayed as “motherly” to Aang.
This is one of many instances where Katara is thought of as Zuko’s romantic partner.
And yes, Aaron Ehasz is behind both of my examples.
This is less an attack on Kat@angers and more of me flipping the bird at anti-Zutura peeps.
There is nothing wrong with shipping canon. I just personally find Zutara a more compelling and richer ship.
