Let's bandwagoning!

What's on the table: Relationships, First Impressions, Hot or Not, Essay, Drabble, Please Ramble About This At Me, Explain Your Thoughts on Their Thoughts, You Should Jump Me, App My Canon and whatever else you may want.

For Kodachi Kuno, Steven Hyde, Stacy Rowe, Hidan, and Ty Lee. Right on.

How about Hyde's first impression of Rikku, unless that was too long ago.

And Rikku should thread with Ty Lee more |D

From what I can recall, general good first impressions? As I recall, that thread was filled with snark and derision in regards to the political process and that's always enough to qualify as a Good First Impression, aaand that's as much as I can remember without digging through gmail to find the thread in question, and I'm about to run for the bus, so yes. :|b

Talk something at me. I'm most interested in anything involving Ty Lee (theory on her) or her and Mulan or, you know, anything.

Okay okay actually I have something that I just thought of and it's very very orz Ty Lee and her neuroses worthy. Basically I just figured out why she keeps occasionally giving Sokka and Zuko chances to not be jerks and then inevitably gets exasperated and snaps on them when things go sideways because of them all being immature teenagers.

Ty Lee is, of course, attention-obsessed. She likes being liked and being the center of attention and all of that. Now, the thing with both Sokka and Zuko is that both of them did, in fact, like Ty Lee at one point. Ty Lee got along with both of them! And had that giant awkward crush on Sokka and she was like 95% sure that Sokka was attracted to her too but was constrained by the stupid crutch that is monogamy! And had that one line where she hit on Zuko in canon that I prefer not to think about! And now... yeah, thaaaat's not the case anymore post-canon updating. Which is basically everyone involved's fault; I mean, Ty Lee might be the most emotionally mature and sensible of the three, except she likes to solve her problems when she gets frustrated by punching the problem in the face and refuses to admit that her worldview is fucked up. But she still occasionally makes these weird sort of attempts to bury the hatchet (mostly with Zuko but I think an attempt with Sokka is coming up soon), and then something goes wrong with it and she explodes over it and then it's even worse than it was before. Because Ty Lee really can't accept either Zuko or Sokka not actually liking her; she doesn't give a damn if Jet or Toph, the other two Avacast people that she's really at odds with, like her or not because, Toph deaging aside, they never liked her. So she's completely zen about pummeling Jet or being a Mean Girl at Toph. But Zuko and Sokka, that's different, because that means that in some way, shape, or form, it's her fault for that happening, and she can't accept that.

But the end result will most likely continually be that these stupid attempts don't change anything. And while Ty Lee can generally get the edge when the inevitable blowup remains in strictly emotional/stupid relationship issues territory, the moment something like... well, Zuko bringing up the war in their last thread happens, Ty Lee can't argue any more, because she knows she doesn't have a leg to stand on beyond "shut up, I KNOW the war is wrong but I'm standing by Azula and Mai no matter what," which sounds nice until you consider that that means that she prioritizes two people over... well, two other countries, and she refuses to consider if that makes her selfish or not. And... yeah. The war will probably continually be that elephant in the room that kills everything. If it comes up and Ty Lee's challenged on it, she can't argue her way out of it so she just sort of resorts to violence, and it's back to square one.

... so this thing stopped being about that one thing and just generally turned into a "why Ty Lee fails at actually solving her own problems" thing. And now it's 2:20 AM. Whoops. Sooo you wanted something about Ty Lee and you got something about Ty Lee, dammit. Waaaay too much about Ty Lee. :|b

I'm going to assume there's nothing in the relationship that isn't covered with "lol stfu jet". INSTEAD what would you have given Ty Lee in the series finale?
