More analysis from Toph's Fanboy. I am but a messenger; these are Metal's words and not mine. Enjoy.
If the reports can be believed, from the very beginning the Earthbending teacher was intended to show up in the second season to act as Sokka’s foil. This would seem to be the background upon which the “bromance” which is made blatantly obvious between Sokka and the Avatar’s Earthbending teacher throughout the series, via their complimentary senses of humor and the deeper mutual “warrior’s bond” which developed out of this. Most people will not disagree with the presence of this within the series, and it seems likely that this much was intended from the very beginning.
When it gets messy and unclear for the fan-base is when they decided the …

Since MetalArmor (Toph's Fanboy) is unable to get on the Wiki, he has given me some of his musings to post to the Wiki. Here is what he gave me, copied verbatim:

Suki was the way Bryke chose for the plot drew Sokka out of his depression and made him realize the world wasn't set against him finding hope in romantic love. No matter what Tokka fans may say about the matter, I will always agree with Sukkaneers that this is what Suki and Sokka's interactions during the "Secret of the Fire Nation" (in "The Serpent's Pass" part) were clearly meant to portray (unless, of course, Bryke clearly says something to the contrary, which I highly doubt will ever happen). From this understanding of the matter, the break-up of Sukka due to the strife of the W…
I decided I wanted to see what all of this looks like together, and to get some input from other people. Here are my most significant comments regarding the identity of Bei Fong's father, specifically against the LongToph anonymous. Ignore the fact that I am addressing someone, since to include the entire conversations would be too much. There's already enough as it is. (I may come back and get rid of the yous, etc. later.) I have changed a few other unimportant things already, though. And I included some of the other contributions besides my own.
You discount Tokka on the basis of no romantic relationship and then provide Longshot as the alternative? You contradict your own reasoning. There was zero connection between Longshot and Toph in-…Read more >
I know the policy says no irrelevant posts--especially no personal posts--and no short posts, but this is the only format I can think of to make this announcement where it will be seen by most if not all users.

Quoted here is the notice I wrote on my talk page:

Basically, don't freak out and wonder who ate me or off which face of the Earth I fell. I am simply taking a long hiatu…Read more >
What if Aang hadn't run away before Monk Gyatso could run away with him? The story would definitely have turned out very differently. I would like to explore this alternate timeline, since it opens up so many possibilities.
Please give me some feedback. Do you like this idea? What/who would you like to see? I will definitely expand on Aang's relationships with his friends, like Bumi and Kuzon. Anything/one else I should definitely include?Read more >
