This tag comes from A Clockwork Reader and is about one of my favorite animated shows of all time, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Let’s get started, shall we?
Katara and Sokka- Best sibling relationship.
I really like the relationship between Eadlynn and her brother in The Heir and The Crown, the two spin off books from the Selection Series. Actually all of the sibling relationships in those books are pretty well done. I was incredibly surprised. It may be one of the reasons I still like them despite the fact they’re not very well written.
Yue: Favorite Starcrossed Lovers
Hazel and Augustus of The Fault in Our Stars. I mean how much more star crossed can a couple get? Seriously, John Green, you kill me. And your characters.
Blood bending: a book with a disturbing concept
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and pretty much every other dystopian that takes away reproductive rights. Let me tell you, as a woman who does not ever want kids this is terrifying to me.
Toph – A character who’s strength surprised you/or surprised the other characters in the book
Mare from Red Queen. She’s a lot stronger than I initially gave her credit or when I started reading the first book. She seemed to be a bit more passive of a character but by the end she blooms into more of a leader.
The Tales of Ba Sing Se – best short story/poetry collection
This one is a tied between The Assassin’s Blade (The Throne of Glass story collection) and The Girl of Fire and Thorns Stories. I love both sets and each gives an extra little look into the lives of the characters.
Kioshi Warriors- Best warrior character
Uh Celaena Sardothian of course. She’s a literal trained assassin. It’s kind of what she does. I’m mot sure anyone can best her in combat.
Zuko- Best redemption arc/a redemption arc that should have happened
I dunno I’m not really into redemption arcs so much. I like my villains to stay villains however I do love the redemption of Severus Snape, even though he wasn’t really bad in the first place. That reveal was so beautiful, even though I had suspected for several books that he wasn’t the baddie Harry always made him out to be.
Iroh- Wisest character
Oh there are so many. Oromis the rider from the Inheritence Cycle (Eragon). The wisest rider is, of course, an elf. Aren’t they always? Elves always seem to be the wisest characters of all when there isn’t a wizard around.
Azula: Best downfall
Appa- Favorite fictional animal
Ignatus the demon. Fletcher’s demon in The Summoner Trilogy has such personality, he’ll probably be my favorite fictional animal for the rest of forever.
Aang: Purest cinnamon roll
James from the Orphan Queen duology. OH POOR PRECIOUS JAMES!
Avatar state: A stubborn character/a character that struggles with letting go
Sybella from Dark Triumph, probably the most stubborn person to ever be written in YA, and I love her for it. She’s a giant pain in everyone’s ass and it makes her perfect to me (and to Beast).
