In my headcanon, there was a period a very long time ago when the Water Tribes were feared anywhere that was less than a few days march from an ocean or a navigable river, a la the aforementioned vikings, and even places like Caldera weren't entirely immune to being the targets of tribute demands or recreational freebooting.

(I'm envisioning sort of an eastern-flavored equivalent of the Sack of Paris, only with less guys named Charles the Bald.)

Well, both Corwin and Utena have demonstrated that they can be both brutal and tenacious, should the situation call for it. (I imagine that Anthy is as well, given the correct circumstances.) But they're both quite well-mannered in polite society, and far more subtle than most logging equipment.

The two people saying this aren't in a bed together, are they?

I mean, I'm pretty sure they aren't, but you never know.

What, the first one? No, it's Corwin and Jinora in Goodbye & Hello. Corwin's talking about the deep, reverberating shock of parenthood. Although they are standing near a bed at the time.

Oh, it's easy to picture Toph as a mother, it just usually involves something like this rather than, you know, the traditional way.

(I apologize for Pinterest. I tried very, very hard to source it from the original artist, but their tumblr is incredibly poorly organized.)
