Let’s just take the time to think about this for a second.
Sokka is totally out of it, thus, he’s being silly and saying stupid things.
But do you guys remember how totally in love he was with the Bolder?
Because maybe he secretly loved Earthbending, but didn’t want to admit it.
but since he’s out of it, he can’t really control what he says/does.
And Toph was an earthbender.
The greatest earthbender of all time.
BASICALLY WHAT I’M SAYING IS THAT TOPH’S EARTHBENDING IS WHAT FIRST ATTRACTED HIM TO HER OR SOMETHING AND IT’S CANNON BECAUSE OF REASONS SO SUCK ON MY TOKKA FEELS AND GET OVER IT.
“…and then you may learn that some roses have steel thorns.”
they are so badass though and I love it
