• gotta admit, pretty
I want to point something out here.
Zuko and Katara are not Yin and Yang. Aang and Toph are not Yin and
Yang. Yin and Yang is not direct opposites.
Yin and Yang is used to describe how opposite or contrary forces
are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they
give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Shippers like to take the yin and yang concept and twist it to fit their agenda.
When Avatar The Last Airbender brought up Yin and Yang, what was it?
Right the moon and the ocean. Two forces of nature that while contrary
forces are still interdependent forces. They need each other for balances.
Yin and Yang are not strictly used for the sake of romance. Some stories, it
is used for obvious ship teasing purposes, but Avatar The Last Airbender is
not one of them.
The two characters who embody that far better than anyone is Zuko and
Aang. Two very different and contrary characters, yet two characters who
balance and compliment each other.
They have different personalities and yet serve as perfect foils. They both
mirror each other and contradict each other. They are opposing forces that
interdependent on one another. Fire and Air fits that far better.
While with different backstories and personalities and choices, they still
parallel one another, they still balance each other.
To me this gifset really showcases that. They come from two different
worlds, with different ideologies. They are foils in every respect, Aang fights
more defensively, while Zuko more offensively, and they use their powers to
battle each other as such. Zuko's darker colors contrasts Aang's brighter
color scheme in their designs. Zuko is older than Aang obviously. But
despite their many obvious differences, they still are forces that while not
knowing it at the time, bring balance with each other.
Their friendship is of a Yin and Yang kind. They're similarities and

    • In Avatar they've literally said that air-earth and fire-water are opposites. Aang had difficulty learning Earth bending cause it's his natural opposite. Water bending powered up with the moon, fire with the sun. One solstice eliminated water bending, the other fire bending. (1/2)

    • When I said Aang and Katara are the definition of opposites attract, I meant that Aang is more jumpy, eccentric, and hyper while Katara is calm, soothing, and relaxing. But no they're not Yin and Yang. They're dependent of each other but no so much to the point they need to be together 24/7.
