Esteemed: Extended Family by tissine Esteemed: Extended Family by tissine

TUMBLR POST | COMMISSION INFO


Depicting Aang and young Lin, Toph and young Tenzin, from the planned events of =Destiny-Smasher's story project, 'Esteemed.' In the story, Aang and Toph's families become connected in a way not unlike extended family, and as such, titles like 'Aunt' and 'Uncle' begin to stick.

The rest of the Esteemed gallery can be viewed at the DA group below, or at the project's Facebook page: [link] A sample of this planned story can be read here: [link]

U know, if Sokka really was Lin's father it'd mean Katara was her aunt, which would make Aang her uncle. And Toph Tenzin's aunt. :)

That's not Aang -- it's a child Tenzin being trained by an adult Toph to defend himself from earthbending attacks.

Destiny-Smasher Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
That's what the training is for -- you won't see every attack coming, so Toph is trying to get Tenzin to start thinking not just in terms of what he can see but also hear with his ears and feel with his airbending.

Lin and Tenzin could never have dated if they were cousins!

Don't exactly care.
If Sokka is the father, that makes Lin and Tenzin first-cousins. Which are basically half siblings.

And since this series is written by people that are restricted from putting something that inappropriate, it's very unlikely.

Plus, Sokka never showed any interest nor romantic chemistry with Toph. Her crush on Sokka was just one-sided.

I just don't see why it's that much of a big deal. It's legal in pretty much all of the globe except for half of the US states and it's not even taboo in most cultures

I wouldn't say it's even close to the big problems of the world. If you date your cousin, I disapprove. But I'm not gonna stone you to death or anything like that. Some cultures find it just inappropriate. Some don't care. Well, I think it's gross and wrong.

They're referring to 'uncle/aunt' NOT in a literal sense, but in the same way many families will make a friend of a the family an honorary uncle/aunt.

I think they would have been cousins only due to Sokka being Toph's wife (and yes I think that is most likely).

Ha, I read the picture before the description. I thought at first the little air-bender kid was Aang, since he trained with Toph when he was younger, and he knows it's tough.

Then, I realized he wouldn't call her aunt... and he didn't have arrows...

I think you're a bit confused. Isn't Lin the same age-ish as Tenzin? So why is the airbender calling toph "aunt toph," and why is Lin so much younger than the man airbender on the top. Also, the bottom airbender doesnt have an arrow....
I is confuzzled! Can you explain this to me?
But your art is really cute! <3 :squee:

Idk know if you were joking, or if you realized it by now...at the top is Aang and young Lin, the bottom panel is Tenzin before becoming a master airbender (no tats) and Toph. :)

Notice how the airbending boy calls her "Aunt Toph." ;) It also says in the description, right below the picture, that it's Toph and young Tenzin. xD So the artist wasn't confused, she drew exactly what I asked her to, haha.

Uhmmm. The man with Lin is the older Aang, and the airbender boy at the bottom is the young Tenzin. According to the commissioner, Tenzin doesn't have a tattoo yet in his story.

Sorry if you're still confused XD I'm not good at explaining stuff
