the painted lady 3x04
Okay, I’ve never been much of a kataang shipper but I found myself watching The Painted Lady at one in the morning (don’t ask why) and this scene came up and BAM for the first time ever I was hit with kataang feels and here’s why.
So as we all know, in order to save the town, Katara disguises herself as the Painted Lady spirit and Aang is hiding beneath the dock to help her pull it off. In this scene, a firebender is about to strike Katara when Aang airbends her off the ground at the last second.
But to be honest, its not Aang saving her that gets to me. Look at how in that fifth gif Katara doesn’t make any move to defend herself at all. We all know she could have kicked that firebender’s ass with just one simple waterbending move but she doesn’t. She stands completely still. Why? Because she doesn’t doubt for a second that Aang will take care of her.
AND JUST UGH MY FEELS OK I’VE NEVER HAD THESE BEFORE
