|"Don't worry. We will be together for all of your lifetimes. And we will never give up."|
|— Raava to Wan before his death|
Wan and Raava did not get off to a good start because Vaatu tricked Wan into interfering with their battle. Raava held a grudge against Wan and did not want to work with him until he managed to convince her otherwise. Wan was just a normal boy who gained firebending but he ended up become the first avatar and the savior of the world against Vaatu. Raava admitted that Wan proved him wrong about humanity. She had given up hope of winning against Vaatu but Wan assured her that it was not over yet and eventually prevailed. They worked together to bring balance to world after they were permanently fused until Wan was killed. He felt like he failed but Raava comforted him told him that they would always be together, unless a dark tentacle happens to reach down his throat and rip her out in a future life.
I never shipped Waava and I find it to be overrated. I guess I can see why people would ship it and I don't have a problem with it but I have never shipped it. While I am open to fan fiction and AUs, I do find it to be slightly annoying every time Raava is portrayed as a human just so that she can be with Wan. If they really loved each other, it wouldn't matter. Plus they are fused together anyway. I really don't see their relationship to be romantic at all. Some fans speculate that Wan at least had a crush on Raava and while it's not impossible I don't think that this was the case.
- The two worked very well together and were (platonic) life-long partners.
- Their bond was so strong that it lasted for over ten thousand years and throughout many life times.
- The two were never shown to be romantically attracted to each other.
- If the two were to desire a physical relationship, it would be pretty hard since Raava is literally stuck inside of Wan.
- Wan is long dead and no longer connected to Raava.
