"people are so good at things how do i get talent :("
echocave, on Haru’s “meet the parents” dinner with Rin, Russel, and Lori
42 days… 42 FREAKING DAYS
This hiatus will mark the shortest in Avatar franchise history.
Haru: I didn’t bring a swimsuit.
Rin: I’ll lend you one…that happens to look just like yours…I didn’t steal one of your swimsuits or anything…and bring it along…It’s a coincidence…
the only major disappointment of ep 12 is rin saying ‘without you i have nothing to aim for’ and fandom celebrating that bc that is so minimizing and makes rin so dependent on haru. he is his own person and has to be able to (and totally can and has done so why did they even write him this line???) aim for things himself. plus, inextricably linking haru to his success or failure is not at all empowering for haru, nor does it put haru in a good position friend-wise. it’s so irksome when this kind of dependent language is put in a super positive light bc it just limits what rin (sounds like he feels he) is capable of, and limits what haru is capable of as well bc it’s basically saying that haru is responsible for rin’s ability or inability to achieve what he wants. i’m just ignoring that line bc rin is not that incapable of being his own person and aiming for things and coming up with aims by himself, and why the hell would he even say that while also admitting to and apologizing about basically roping haru into his dreams without even giving haru a say in the matter.
rin thanks the lord everyday that haru cant understand english
