so ugh sorry REPOSTING since i left out 2 pages w/ the most cohesive part on it. that’s what i get for putting posts together in early morning delirium
Finally getting around to posting some of my jotting down little story/headcanon scribble files.
It’s not all sequential, jumps forward in time and stuff, it’s not even headcanon too much since I have no basis for most any of this, mainly just an exercise in writing/another thing to make me sketch a lot lol.
So I really like Pema, or at least the idea of Pema seeing as she hardly has any screentime (though her season 1 stuff is p cute). There’s something really appealing to me in basically a nobody- a tiny, young, plain looking non-bender from who knows where- coming in and being like unfalteringly confident and undaunted by like.. anything honestly, as far as we’ve seen.
I started this bit with a couple rules and challenges, the first one being don’t make them unlikable haha, so therefore you have to diffuse some of the easy-to-make-creepy things about their relationship that the show only mentions. So the point where Pema confesses all this stuff would be after they’ve known each other for 5 years or so, she joined at 14-15 and she’s 20 when she talks to him about it. I imagine Acolytes move around temples so she’s lived at different ones including some time at ATI. She’s also Tenzin’s peer at that point, as much as an Acolyte can be, maybe helped with teaching or at least how to wrangle newbies better or something.
coming up next or eventually:
