Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it.
Can’t go around it.
Gotta go through it.
Trying to explain depression or anxiety to someone who’s never experienced it.
This belongs here.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. (x)
This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.
Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!
Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.
Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

You know that all Korra villains represent different political ideologies right?
Amon is a socialist, or a nationalist depending on how you look at it. He advocates bringing everyone to an equal playing field by redistributing power.
Unalaq wanted to set up…
This feels like a very cynical moment, but I think there’s more going on than just that. I think what Toph is really saying to Korra is that if you derive your self worth solely from your accomplishments, then you are going to wind up pretty empty as a human being. Because our accomplishments, huge as they may seem in the moment, ultimately don’t amount to a ton in the grand scheme of things. Granted, Korra did save the Air Nation and the world from 10,000 years of darkness. But she’s gotta find other reasons to keep going.
Toph doesn’t think her police work really “solved” anything, but she also doesn’t seem like she’s a shattered human being. Rather, she’s made peace with the vanity of human pursuits (dukkha) and has chosen a spiritual path. She is literally the bodhisattva beneath the banyan tree.
I knew there was something more to this than sheer cynicism, but I couldn’t quite put it into words. When you say it like this, though, it makes a lot of sense.
