method to mothers madness by Poofette method to mothers madness by Poofette

"Korra" was awesome in that the families that it created gave us amazing characters, Lin being my now completely favorite. I drew this after the tragedy that was episode 10, so it's beyond "late" now (thankyou Lupus for delaying my fandom, and that I no longer need to grieve over her "loss.")

Thought's on this: Maybe what Lin trailed off and was thinking of before/during the process of loosing her bending. Toph teaching her to "feel," be the badger-mole, and see through your feet; using the blindfold just like she did with Aang. Thinking of days when life was easiest, and happiest.

lol, "If Aang can do it, so can you!" I don't know why, but that one line is so hilarious to me! I could totally see Toph saying it!

Lin proved a worthy successor to Toph's badass legacy. I was pleased, and can only hope she continues to be as epic as her mom in the future. Also, this is adorable.

Katara- uh Toph, I think you're being a bit irrational...
Toph- just because you won't let Tenzin create a ball of air big enough for him to float on doesn't mean my daughter can't get more advanced at HER bending!

The first deviantart picture i have ever seen that has almost reduced me to tears. I'm going to need a box of tissues in t-minus 1-2-3...

(Tearbends for hours)

As i was saying, this is a brilliant picture in an amazing style of work.

I don't know weather to give it a sad or a love.

Oh, confliction and tears, why....

I love this so much- the way you bring potential (actually probable) backstory into a legitimate and crucial moment in Lin's canon works perfectly. Great job!
