**The Electric Lady** Janelle Monáe - Nikkolas
"When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. Now, in the twilight of my life, misunderstanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time, once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward."
#this is actually the best (and coolest) use of airbending that we see in the show #because this craft is about circles and avoidance and poor aang is forced to use it so many times for violence when he doesn’t want to #like here though we see it used as both an offense AND defense and it’s just so perfect for who he is and what he needs to do #he’s not just propelling himself away from the explosion #he’s projecting it back TOWARDS the attacker #to save his and his friends’ lives and potentially do some damage to the enemy #and the air acts as a shield that will toss him into the air but he knows he’ll be all right as long as his friends are #because saving lives comes first to him #it always will
