Mako and Bolin's Parents: What Really Happened by siquia Mako and Bolin's Parents: What Really Happened by siquia
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A FAN THEORY

read left to right

So far we know Mako (and only Mako, Bolin's whereabouts at the time are unknown) witnessed their mom and dad being mugged and killed by a firebender when he was 8, but that may not be how it really went down.

Let’s look at this logically. I’m with the idea that their parents were benders. They were also prolly pretty boss at it, judging from the boys. Now, with two excellent and varied benders against one measly firebender (a desperate one at that to be mugging a family), would their parents really have lost and died?
:iconorlyowlplz:

I'm thinking their parents got involved with a gang (the boys did it, why not them), only a more dangerous one than The Triple Threats. They met while they were both members, fell in love, wanted to leave to raise a family, but were forbidden from exiting. They escaped instead, went into hiding, and lived a happy life until one night several years later when they were hunted down and ambushed.

Dunno about you but it just doesn’t sit well with me that in a world where 14-yo amateurs can beat seasoned masters, two capable benders just get murdered.

don't repost, reblog instead

The counting thing made it even sadder than it already was. I really am about to cry.

MAJOR FEELS! And I think this just became my headcanon. Thank you!

 

I even think it CAN fit into canon, after all in your comic it looked like Mako only saw the ONE firebender and it isn't like his parents would be like "Hey son, did your mother and I ever tell you about the time we were in a gang?"

 

Anyway, beautiful piece, I love the the way you captured the lighting/shading and I really loved the colors you choose and the designs for Mako and Bolin's parents. Fabulous!
