the-strangest-sea:

So… I found this on Thursday? And I’m just a little bit baffled— upon looking inside, it confirms that the book contains Daja’s book and Briar’s book. Yet it’s called Air & Earth.
While Briar definitely has earth magic, I would say that Daja has fire magic? Not air? And if any of the quartet has air magic, it would be Tris? The girl who can do things like store tornadoes in her hair? 
But really, they don’t really match p with the elements at all? I mean, you could argue that Daja has fire magic, and Briar earth, and Tris air or water, but… Sandry has spinning magic?
This cover makes no sense.

I always associated them with the elements like this:
Briar - Earth (easiest)
Daja - Fire (You could also argue earth because of her connection with metals.)
Tris - Water (Although she is also strongly associated with air with her winds.)
Sandry - Air (She’s the trickiest and I think part of this association is perhaps due to some iconography I saw early on?)
I dunno. When I type it all out it doesn’t make sense, but I’ve always loved categorizing things into the four western elements.
Also: It looks like these publishers consider Sandry to be water (what?) and Tris to be fire? (x)

It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If you take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements and the other nations, will help you become whole. It is the combination of the four elements in one person that makes the Avatar so powerful, but it can make you more powerful too.

This may be one of the coolest gifsets I’ve ever seen.

WOW THIS TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO COMPLETEPrint for AX 2012 and Otakon 2012. Kind of made like a true blue poster instead of just a print, so I guess a motivational poster for Avatar/Korra.All of the poses and compositions, though some of it is a purely aesthetic choice, try to correspond to the character of their element. Let me ramble about them for a moment if I may, humdidum.The Yin is rising over the Moon, just as Korra is rising to her responsibilities as the current Avatar. Yin is the dark and feminine portion of the mutual Yin and Yang. Her right hand brings up water, while her left holds it steady.The Badgermole is centered and grounded, just as Hung gar, with it’s steady horse stances and strong forms, grounds it’s practitioners just as Earth does for the bender.The Sky Bison is protective, circular, just as Bāguà quăn invokes circular, deflective motion in it’s forms, so too does Tenzin turning from the viewer in a show of deflection against the opposing, offensive force of the Dragon.The Dragon is in turn wild and spread out, recalling the external nature of Northern Shaolin, with it’s powerful spikes of energy in it’s attacks and forms.
