Added DiffLines:

*** Kataang is also one of the most popular ships as well. Hence the ship wars being so vicious. However Kataang has the benefit of the two involved spending years together and as well as being cannon.


** We know that it was either winter or approaching winter at the start of the series because of the winter solstice, so perhaps it's now always completely covered in snow everywhere at the southern water tribe. For an analogue to our world, Greenland is almost completely covered in ice and snow, but they have trees and grass, too.

** ''The Legend of Korra'' reveals that there are sacred forests at the north and south poles,
too.


---> '''Ehasz''': At some point, I received a letter from a younger woman who said she related to Mai as a darker, depressed character, and she said that of so many things she’d watched, that dark character is made fun of or loses in the end. She felt like Mai had a happy ending without having to change her identity. She could have that identity and still find happiness without changing who she was. Those experiences are amazing, when someone takes a minute to tell you that something affected them, you just feel lucky you were able to have a positive impact on someone.”

Added DiffLines:

** At the start of the finale, none of the main characters had expected it to be the finale, since they were planning on waiting until after the comet had passed to confront Ozai, so that Aang could train more. All things considered, he ''did'' still have a lot to learn.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also interesting with how certain things have played out. For example, Avatar Extras from the first episode said that Katara was originally supposed to be in love with Zuko. It is unknown why this idea was scrapped. Now, what is the pairing that is even more popular then the Canon, even years after the series' end.
*** Zuko/Katara wasn't scrapped, the Avatar Extra was a completely lie, probably as a joke. Like the one about how Zuko loves war meetings.
**** This is highly debatable due to the amount of conflicting information that Bryke and other members of the production team have provided. Bryke said that there was a 50-50 chance that Katara would end up with either Aang or Zuko while Season 3 was airing. Then they said they "never intended for Zuko and Katara to get together" in the Sozin's Comet Novelization. No one knows why they have given so much inconsistent information about this. Perhaps they are very indecisive creators who are lying now for the sake of convenience, maybe the writers had made them consider a Zuko/Katara ending then they went back to Katara/Aang, or they have become fed up with people hating their favoured pairing....since they are well-known for [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/24721131897/my-first-web-comic-hope-you-trolls-like-it not being able to take criticism and blaming everything on "crazy fangirls"]]
**** A Season 3 pop-up also says that the creators and writers toyed with Zuko and Katara falling in love. Aaron Ehasz has backed up the claim of Zuko being a possible love interest for Katara with his lecture at the University of Berkeley. He told his class that the production team was planning on writing about Zuko and Katara's relationship if they chose to go with that route, but the Nickelodeon executives pushed them to go with Kataang.
---> '''Ehasz''': “If Katara got with Zuko, six year olds would cry.”
*** Shyamalan has also backed this up in an [[http://www.lastairbenderfans.com/index.php?start_from=&ucat=8&subaction=showfull&id=1269959997&archive=1272555212& interview that Bryke had not decided]] on the OfficialCouple (which might be why he made the fight between Zuko and Katara more "shippy" in the movie). This directly contradicts with the claim made by Bryke after the series had ended that Kataang was always the "DNA of the show". They seem to hate the idea of Zuko/Katara nowadays as evidenced by their "Forbidden Love" video where they openly mocked their fans and in The Promise comic where the two characters hardly even talk to each other despite being very good friends in the original series.
--->'''Shyamalan''': "At that time they hadn’t even decided where things were going to end, even like ''who Katara was going to end up with''. All of that stuff hadn’t been figured out yet."
*** According to the Avatar Bible no one was going to end up in a relationship in the earliest drafts. They were all still single by the end of the series with everyone going their own separate ways to rebuild the war-torn world. In fact, Katara had more of a romance with ''Toph'' (when she was still a male character) than with either Zuko or Aang.
** Just because shippers are loud and [[OpinionMyopia are convinced that their way is the only real way to look at the series]] [[VocalMinority doesn't mean it's actually more popular than canon]].
*** Except that Zutara really is one of the most popular ships, in case the many flame wars weren't an obvious indication.
