Sokka and Toph

Chatting with my 6 year old daughter about The Last Air Bender and I asked her which character she wanted to be like.

Knowing about the other things Merlin has said about sports, this kind of feels like forcing someone to admit they love their family. It’s some great writing, but I sure as hell hate sports culture. It’s the kind of culture that makes you regret saying that in public.
