Wow I love the air nomad family like no other.
Congratulations on your wife and children, Tenzin.

“Watching my soulmate spend his life with the wrong woman became too painful.” - Pema
sidenote: As fun as the idea is, I don’t actually think Tenzin dated Lin when they were younger because in all likelihood they grew up together and had to see each other all the time at gaang reunions and my experience is that if you grow up with someone since childhood it’s very hard to see them as anything other than siblings. And from their snippy exchange in episode 1, I feel like Tenzin and Lin definitely have more of a sibling rivalry going on. This was just an excuse to draw a younger Tenzin and Lin. ;)
Although! If Pema’s story is true, I doubt she’s the type to homewreck a happy relationship - it’s much more likely that Tenzin was involved in a relationship that made him unhappy or unsatisfied in some way, which became more than Pema could bear. /headcanon
