Awesome animation! I think one of the things that fascinates me about Lin (don’t have the time at this moment to draw it out, so I just wanted to write it down so I don’t forget) is how aerial she is. She’s so light on her feet and clearly does not subscribe to the Toph school of being one with the earth, and I’d love for that to be influenced either from Aang (whom she supposedly really got along with) or from sparring with Tenzin, or both. I’d bet good money that Lin was the one who invented the use of metal cables, since I don’t feel like Toph would be comfortable with such a small, projectile-type weapon (she’s more the type to use massive chunks of rock), and I’d like to think Lin is paying a bit of a tribute to airbending with the way she uses her cables to get herself airborne.
“There is earth right beneath your feet! The ground is an extension of who you are!”
He has a point.
