  • I think Suki might have married Zuko. Your thoughts?

      Loading editor
    • Hard to say really, I think there are some pro's and cons to this whole "Zuki" thing...

      First off, let's look at some facts that may support this theory.

      1. Zuko and Mai have broken up. AGAIN. And I don't mean to sound hasty or anything, but if what they are doing is relevant to real life relationships, then I think it's only a matter of time before their relationship is off permanently.

      2. Suki seems very genuinely concerned about Zuko's wellbeing in The Promise and The Search and she's being very personal about it too. She even tried to hold his hand at one point.

      3. Suki has been away from Sokka for quite some time. And she's beginning to spend alot more time with Zuko. I think if things keep going the way they are, it's only a matter of time before Suki possibly breaks up with Sokka which leaves her wide open for Zuko.

      However, there are some contradicting factors as well.

      1. Suki and Sokka are still in a relationship, Suki has shown no hesitation towards Sokka so far, In fact, she seems more than happy to see him whenever they meet. if she did have feelings for Zuko then she would be a bit more hesitant. And so far, there has been nothing to suggest that their relationship is in any sort of crisis.

      2. Suki was hired to protect Zuko's life. She senses his unease and tries to make him as calm as possible. Even if that means (essentially) flirting with him. But it's all in the sake of her duty as his bodyguard of course.

      3. Despite Mai being fed up with Zuko and his secrets, it was hinted that she still does care for him deeply (as shown in Rebound) and Zuko clearly still cares about Mai too, he didn't want her to leave. the way I see it, Mai left Zuko because she sensed he was at unease. And she wanted him to find peace before reuniting with him. And since Zuko finally found his mother, his soul is finally at peace and he is happier than ever before. If this is true then I think it's only a matter of time before Mai shows up again.

      Either way, I'd say just wait to see what happens. I think it could go either way, if they DID get married, then who do you think Sokka married? Ty Lee?

    • Wow it's like you're in my head, these are my reasonings almost exactly!

      Yes, being so on again off again, no matter how much love there is, is a stressful relationship, one that not even someone who didn't have the responsibilities of a Fire Lord would tire of quickly.  I think given the right amount of time, Sokka and Suki will both realize that their relationship just can't work long distance, both are way too independant. I think that Mai is just fed up with it all in a sense, she couldn't show emotion as a child, as a teenager she was basically replaced by the son her parents always wanted and I think it all finally caught up with her and she realized that being Fire Lady wouldn't give her the freedom she craved, I think Zuko lying and keeping secrets was the out she needed, for as much as she loves Zuko and she puts up with, it would have been just as easy to pin him to a wall, go cool down for a few days, and then try to talk it out with her boyfriend, that is if she really wanted to stay with him; where there's a will there's a way, as they say. As for Sokka, I think they'd part friends because that's just his nature, and Sokka being Sokka I think he would play the field a while before settling down. If he does get married I dont think it'd be Ty Lee, I think it might be a sweet Watertribe girl, that thinks he's a great warrior and showers him with affection and love, she might possibly remind him of Yue, and that's what might start the attraction. What do you think?

    • Lol, well I guess you and I are kindred mindsets ;P

      Well, we are speaking theoratically of course, and these theories are based off real life relationships. But this is an animated tv show of course, not everything is supposed to be relevant to real life. And usually the romance that was established to begin with (like Aang and Katara) does usually tend to carry out. Particularly in animated cartoons such as this. And with romance they do tend to tease you alot too. Like Katara having many different love interests in the show even though she inevitably ends up with Aang. And I think it's the same case here with ZukoxMai and SokkaxSuki. They are just teasing us with it. But in the end, if you don't follow the rules, then you'll pay the price xP

      It's for this very reason why I think Sokka and Suki will stay together most likely, think about it, aside from the whole long distance relationship thing which yeah, doesn't tend to work out either. There is nothing to suggest that their relationship is in some sort of crisis. Maybe once the rift is finished (unless there are more comics after the rift) Sokka and Suki will move to Kyoshi Island together and have their happily ever after. And I know I'm kinda contradicting myself on what I said earlier at this point but I don't think Suki would break up with Sokka to get with Zuko after everything that they've done. They broke out of the boiling rock together, they fought the fire nation at Kyoshi Island together and they fought the fire nation airships together too. To me this just seems like too much character arc to just be thrown away like that. It's obvious that Suki loves Sokka and she cares about her job too. Also, I dunno if you knew yet but there is a comic book coming out soon that is about Suki and Sokka so I wouldn't give up hope just yet! :D Like I said. Suki's apparent flirtateous attitude towards Zuko is most likely a result of her caring about her duties and making sure he is safe. Another possibility I think why she's acting this way is because she feels guilty that she was ultimately the cause of their breakup. She wants to remind him that she's really sorry for what she's done and she's showing what a kind and loving person she is, most people do this to make sure that the person doesn't hate their guts for it xD I just wish the writers didn't do this in such a sceptical way -.- they totally made it seem like she (though I do believe unintentionally) was hitting on him. She followed him to Yu Dao and she was saying how she was concerned that Zuko was "feeling lonely". I'm honestly surprised Sokka didn't say anything at this point, cause honestly, if I was in that position I would feel awkward as hell xD But yeah, like I said. Suki being so attatched to Zuko is most likely because she feels guilty about unintentionally provoking their iminant breakup.

      So I don't think I need to elaborate any more on that one...

      As for Sokka ending up with someone else, I don't think so because Sokka has had heaps of love interests in the show like Suki, Toph, Ty Lee and Yue. Making him end up with a new character just seems sorta vague to me. I guess this is because why I explained earlier how tv relationships work. If by some chance that Sokka and Suki didn't happen then I suggested that he might get with Ty Lee cause that's more canonically possible. Having him end up with a new character just seems like a cheap resume to me. And it wouldn't be recieved too well by fans either. But if he did end up with a water tribe girl like you described, then don't you think we would of seen her in LoK book 2 already? 

      As for Mai and Zuko, I don't really have much to rebuttle on this one xD I guess all I can say is that no matter how many differenciating aspects they have. They still make each other happy regardless, Even if Zuko can never live up to her ideals or expectations. They will probably adress this soon tough and make a compromise. But like I said, Zuko's finally found his mother and now his soul is at peace. That seems to be the real major issue with Zuko and Mai being together, is that whenever Zuko is at unease then that becomes a problem for Mai because all she wants is for him to be happy. Do you remember the episode I can't remember what it was called but it was a while after Zuko was accepted back into his nation as the royal prince and him and Mai were sitting on top a cliff edge talking about how much Mai hates the world and stuff xD Zuko and Mai seemed really happy together at that point, and if I recall correctly, The exact point where Zuko and Mai's relationship took a turn for the worse was the episode about the beach because Zuko was acting paranoid about not knowing about right or wrong anymore. That was also the same episode where the broke up for the first time too. I don't know about you but now that Zuko's mother is back it seems really likely that they might get back together soon because Zuko is happy again and it's a perfect que for Mai to step back in.

      So yeah, that's what I think ;P

    • Suki is faithful to Sokka, and vice versa. When Suki said that she was concerned for Zuko's well-being, she said so as a friend, not flirting with him.

      Not by that much. The comics seem to lean towards the path of "Suki has a crush on Zuko". I doubt Gene Yang would write "I-We're glad to have you back" and other moments that involve Suki showing rather personal than nessecary affection towards Zuko to not eventually face this in a later comic. I might be wrong though, because it's been three years since the breakup of Maiko and the free comic Rebound, and Smoke & Shadow (which was basically a trilogy that had been throwing Maiko fluff at our faces) didn't resolve anything

      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sukka seems like a pretty healthy relationship, don't get me wrong. In fact, I'd say it's the healthiest relationship in the Avatarverse, being a perfect dose of independence, dependence, understanding, and good old-fashioned hormones. I'm just saying that it seems a tad suspicious with all these hints that the comics are dropping and eventually a waste of those special panels between Suki and Zuko for there not to be some sort of confrontation about the two in a romantic sense in the future. But you know, Mai and Zuko are still in the same position they were in the comic that was released three years ago, with the two having strong feelings for each other but still not a couple. So...yeah, romance isn't exactly something the comics excel at, so my defense for Zuki could be complete shit.

      This isn't really proof, but people think Suki being concerned for Zuko's well-being is her crushing on him ("I'm--we're concerned for you" or whatever the heck she said); Kiyi asking Zuko if he thought Suki was pretty; Suki and Zuko talking on a balcony; Suki standing close to Zuko in The Promise, and her seeming to reach for his hand; Zuko showing concern when Suki was knocked down by the New Ozai Society; Zuko blushing when Suki says she knows where Mai is and telling him to let her know if he would like to visit Mai... I'm sure there are more. lol

      I'm with you, though. Zuki is pretty much non-existent.

      'Subtle romance'? Uh, Sokka and Yue were pretty much having an affair, and their relationship wasn't anywhere near subtle. Maiko not getting married in the future also stems from the fact that they have such an off again on again relationship,

      The fate of Maiko hasn't really been confirmed, but I agree. I ship them, but I'm not sure if it would be a good relationship in the long run.. Realistically, it probably wouldn't be. Unless of course they work it out somehow. I don't really care, as long as Zuki doesn't end up as endgame.

      I honestly can't imagine the relationship really ever working unless Mai completely changes her personality into someone she isn't. And you should never ever ever have to downright entirely alter with what a character stands for just for a love interest. Ever.

      I agree 100%. As much as I would like for Maiko to be endgame, I just don't it would happen. It's just really not a functional relationship. I'll just have to stick with Maiko fanfiction :T

      Oh, it was subtle in the fact that it didn't get much traction on account of the situation they were in with the engagement and the siege. And became heartbreaking because of the sacrifice.

      As for Maiko, on and off relationships can only go for so long before being one or the other permanently. I'm hoping it returns to the on aspect soon.

      She seems to be oddly showing more emotion in the comics than in her whole time in ATLA.
