Their Moment by XenofireX Their Moment by XenofireX
:iconspinplz: Aang and Katara had their moment so why shouldn't Toph and Sokka have theirs? Well... assuming they had a relationship :iconfailglompplz:

I'm aware that this image isn't exactly accurate, Toph wasn't wearing makeup and Sokka is supposed to have a big bushy beard. Although that would just be silly, wouldn't it? ;)

Isn't it WRONG to laugh?
The more better question would be: Isn't it RIGHT to laugh?

Actually Sokka wasn't wearing a beard during the actual dance, and Katara didn't have a pregger belly either, when Katara and Aang were dancing Toph and Sokka were sitting but seeing as I am a die hard Tokka fan, I bet they SO totally did! So the fact he wasn't acting as Wang Fire during the dance, helps make it a better maybe ^^

Well... you certainly did scrutinize this a lot :O_o: I will admit, I didn't even think about this that thoroughly... and I drew this! :laughing:
Regardless, thanks for the comment and the support, from now on I'll question myself more deeply before choosing a subject for an image :D

This is still awesome either way c: a lot of people try to put down Sokka because of the age thing, that's the one reason why I like to explain it. Most of my relationships were a 3 or 4 year age difference C:

I kinda support Tokka, but....
Aang and Katara's son Tenzin was dating with Toph's daughter Lin.
If Sokka and Toph were together, it would make Tenzin and Lin,well, cousins.

Nerf-or-Nothing Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The funny thing about that is that no one can use that as an excuse for Toph and Sokka not to be together because Lin and Tenzin are NOT together.

They were either teens or kids when they had their thing and they are not COUSINS because who ever said Sokka was Lin's father, and if that was true, they'd be cousins. That being said, Avatar is cloaked with Asain, or better said "anime" references and it is not uncommon for cousins to crush on each other in anime. Take Card Captor Sakura for example, Meilin and Li were cousins but she loved him like a girlfriend would love a boyfriend. Li of course didn't feel the same but they were betrothed to each other and if Li hadn't fallen in love with Sakura, they most likely would have married. It may seem gross but it's a different culture.

That being said, Tenzin is related to Sokka, he is Sokka's nephew. Lin is Toph's daughter, Sokka is NOT her biological father so therefore they aren't cousins and that means they are NOT related, it is pure specualtion on hopes that Sokka is Lin's father and that is not fact, that is fiction. They do not share the same DNA, not even a small bit. The only way they'd be related if Toph and Sokka had gotten together would be by marriage. Often Step-Siblings who share no DNA end up getting together as well, as their only connection making them family is through marriage and most cultures accept that as a possibility especially when teens or even preteens because stepsiblings. Put a teenage boy and a teenage girl similar in age in the same household and it's actually a common occurrence that at one point one or both end up having some sort of romantic feelings for each other. Cause they aren't related. The only time step siblings wouldn't really crush on each other is if they grew up together from a very young age, otherwise they'd see each other as being brother and sister and wouldn't think otherwise. Life With Derek, Martin Mystery, Cruel Intentions, tons of shows and movies ended up having this kind of forbidden romance as a plot twist.

So even if Toph and Sokka got together at some point and Tenzin and Lin stayed together, it is not incest or gross, only in terms of that Tenzin's Uncle would have married Lin's mother, so they'd have been Step-siblings only if Toph and Sokka had actually married. If Toph and Sokka were together as a couple yet never married, Lin and Tenzin would by the letter of the law, not even have been related through even marriage because no marriage would have existed.

I imagine Toph and Sokka eventually got together, as we saw in Legend of Korra they still hung around together and Sokka even seemed tender when mentioning Toph in the court room. In most ancient culture, probably in all Asian culture, divorce did not exist and if your spouse died you did not remarry. In many Asian cultures in ancient times men of wealth and stature could also take more then one bride. Anywho, if in Avatar divorce didn't exist, which honestly we don't know, then it's safe to say if Sokka and Toph ended up falling in love, they'd be together but they would marry.

So you can still support Tokka, because you really have no other reason not to unless you prefer Toph and/or Sokka with someone else. That being said Tokka is my number one ship, but I support Toko second, Taang third and sometimes depending Toph and Haru, only because I saw an awesome artwork with the two of them haha. I don't mind Sokka and Suki but I'm not that big of a fan I'm either tokka or Yue and Sokka. I love Suki but I just think her and Sokka were pushed together with not enough background. Sokka called Yue his first love and yet after one kiss on the cheek and Yue's death sokka and Suki are gaga for each other once they meet again months later in Be Sing Se. Then again, they were in a war and the same age, and both non-benders but I don't seem them as lasting because they are much too different and they both wanted different things in life. Opposites attract, and it brings passionate relationships and from my own personal experience, quite fun. Same for relationships where there is a lot in common and minor differences, pretty awesome connection. Suki and Sokka kinda lacked the passion that most people liked about Zutara or the sweet connection Kataang had. I dunno, just my two cents.

I notice you said you kinda support Tokka and you gave your reason why you don't see it working, but you don't have anything to worry about, because Sokka is only Lin's father in fanfiction and fanart and even if it turned out he was in canon, then it still wouldn't make a difference because Lin and Tenzin are not together, and it really wouldn't matter much if they had stayed together because it'd only be a cultural preference.

And I guess that's why it never happened... :disbelief:
Still, there's nothing stopping us from dreaming about an alternative universe in which it did happen :date:. Thus I guess that if Tokka did occur, Katara must have had a relationship with someone else :confused:, perhaps Zuko... poor Aang :nuu:

Toph is only 3 years younger. Toph and aang are 12, Katara is 14, Sokka is 15. The oldest teen in the series is Zuko at 16 with his sister, Azula, being the same age as Sokka at 15. Three years is nothing, it only seems like much because Toph was 12 during the show. But I am sure when Toph was 14 and Sokka 17 it wouldn't seem like such a big deal. when Toph would be 20, that would make Sokka 23, it's not as much as big a age gap as people assume and the creators said that Toph and Sokka remained close because they were best friends. Those are facts, however the romantic implication is still up for imagination but I like to think so. Besides what kid hasn't had a crush on someone slightly older, and really, it isn't uncommon for a childhood crush who once thought you were a kid, see you as an older more mature woman and think "whoa"

In the last airbender, Toph was 12 and Sokka was 15, that makes an age different of just 3 years. And considering Toph's mind is more... mature (?) than Sokka, I think it's absolutely normal for the two of them :)
