Definitely, Fire, and God: royaltealovingkookiness: deeperthanswords: royaltealovingkookiness: The first training of Zuko we see, Iroh shoots a fireball right into Zuko’s face - while Zuko just stands there unflinching. It’s the very first episode, and Zuko & Iroh are the obvious villains, and it just seems like some macho bs they do.  And then comes the duel with Zhao, and Zuko is down, but when he sees that flaming fist to his face, something lets loose inside him that helps him turn the fight around…But it’s not until we learn Zuko’s backstory that all this gets a whole new meaning.  Why would Zuko still be on basics if not because he suffered a huge setback after his agni kai? Imagine how much hard work, patience it was to build Zuko back up again, so he would not freeze in blind panic (or curl up in a ball) when fire gets close to his face. I think Iroh practiced this with him all the time until he could stand there unflinching (knowing that Iroh is in full control of his bending and trusting that his uncle would never hurt him). And when it came to the duel with Zhao, Zuko could react in a RL situation instead of freezing up, and turn all the negative feelings (rage, anger, pain, whatever) into fuel to win the fight against a bender who is much more skilled than he is.  And Iroh obviously drilled him with control and restraint, because no matter how much he lets his rage loose, he has enough control not to hurt Zhao and enough self-restraint not to burn him at the end. I definitely think it was a deliberate choice on Iroh’s part to hold back on teaching offensive forms to Zuko beyond the basics (knowing that combining those with his unprocessed anger could result in him being out of control and hurt people). Instead, it seems he concentrated on teaching him defensive forms, fire breath, heat control, and so on… What the FUCK iroh was the real mvp of this whole show my god Indeed. It goes over many people’s head, but he made a huge difference. It was mostly assists and defensive plays though, not the flashy stuff. I love that narrative so much, how you change the world one person at a time and not only violence and hate, but also love and kindness creates ripple effects.

Beautiful, Head, and Muslim: HOW TO DRAW HIJAB @souratgar certified Muslim WHAT IS HIJAB? "Hijab" is a form of dress code in Islam. Not only does it apply to women, but it applies to men as well. Hijab means dressing modestly; covering your arms, legs, and wearing loose clothing. There's a lot of different types of hijab! Here's the 3 main types: (somehimes the entire) face is covereel @Souratgar HIJAB FOR THE SAKE OF SPACE, WEL LOOK ONLY AT THO STYLE) NIQAB BURQA Sometimes hijabis will wear a CHADOR over their hijab. A chador is a fabric that hangs from your head (it's almost like a superhero cape!) Some Muslim women will wear chador while praying. M SUPER They come in a lot of different designs and colours. The most common colour is black. Com FY However, there are plenty of chadors that have beautiful floral designs. The fabric used to make chadors is usually cotton. @souratgar "OKAY SO HOW DO I DRAN IT? It's very easy! Drawing a hijab requi res one skill: knowing how fabric folds! And sometimes, depending on how tight the hijab is there won't be many fabric folds! @souratgar MIX TIGHT LOOSE You can even design your own! The criteria for a hijab is - Covers ears, neck, and hair - *Has* to be worn with modest clothing, no bikini armour sorry :( REMEMBER! To use references! But also, if a hijiabi has a problem with your design or your drawing of a hijabi, listen to them! You can always learn new things from others, especially those you're trying to represent. @souratgar THANKS GOOD LUCK kamikazevendetta: souratgar: I made an art tutorial on how to draw hijab and hijabis! Ahhhhh!!! Its so good!! Thank you lovely person for making this, maybe ill finally get to see people dressed like me in art soon!! (Also thank you for the note on the modest clothing- wearing a hijab isnt like choosing to wear a hat, while how each hijabi wears it is different and totally up to her, its frustrating to see it added on as an afterthought in media to gain representation points. A large part of the reason many wear it is the lack of sexualisation it gives us, so please keep that in mind!)
