Month of Awesome Women: Toph Bei Fong (Avatar: the Last Airbender)

Ack, okay, I am totally failing on this meme owing in part to modding and in part to offline things. Alas! I will try and write maybe a post or two in the next week or so.

But in lieu of a proper post tonight, let me say that a) Toph is made of joy, and b) this is aptly demonstrated in my [community profile] white_lotus gift!

120 Faces by anonymous. 120 Toph-centric icons.

SO COOL. So I will now be communicating entirely via Toph-based graphics, just fyi.


TOPH! Please make up for my lack and leave love and recs and such for her in the comments. :D

Toph is indeed awesome! Here are some awesome things I have tagged:

Meanings tied up in dots and lines by sqbr, a story in which Toph and Teo build awesome accessible things together.

Three Times Toph Misses Home (And One Time She Doesn't) by [ profile] rawles, a quietly lovely Toph character study.

Postscripts by [ profile] rilina_fic, a gen Avatar-Women-After-The-War story that has a great Toph section (note character death).

First by White Aster, a Toph/Iroh first-time story.

Toph is amazing! She makes me so happy. I've just finished the final season of A:TLA and oh my god, she's just so EPIC. I love her!

I thought I had seen all of this show, though out of order, because it's ALWAYS on TV. But it turned out that I hadn't. I randomly came across it the other day and it was the episode where Toph teaches Aang earthbending and AHAHAHA it was SO AWESOME. Katara's all like "Aang responds to positive reinforcement and gentle nudges," and Toph's all, "Thanks for the tip, Katara! :DDD" And then she turns around and just IS TOPH and it's amazing.

TOPH!! She wins all the things.
Also, I kinda ship her with Suki for that one scene.
