Because Mai is too cold to be Firelady.
Suki has so much spice, leadership skillz, and compassion for others.
And I always hated Sukka…
But I hate the Idea of Sokka alone.
So my new headcannon is:
When Suki left Sokka, he went to seek comfort in his bestie Toph, and was shocked to find out that she had had a baby, and upset to find out that the man died/left Toph behind, and stepped in as a father figure, and he fell for her along the way.
So Tokka happened.
Zutara will forever be my OTP, but it’s okay.
