The Wooing of Toph by Deisi The Wooing of Toph by Deisi
As my husband Will remarked, "She'll make your bed rock."

I don't know if it's because I just had a baby myself, but I find the idea of Toph as a wife/mother hilarious (in a good "I-hope-we-get-to-see-her-domesticate way"). I can't decide if I want her potential husband to be a skinny, sensitive nerd or a huge built badass. Somewhere I read that she had an arranged marriage, but I don't remember who said that or if it has any credibility so for now I'll just wait and make suggestive comics.

EDIT: GUYS, believe it or not, I KNOW that people have babies in non-marital relationships that are not one-night-stands. But having Toph say, "hey, we're in a loving, committed relationship, let's have a baby" packs a little less comedic punch than her getting knocked up.

LOL nice, and I think Toph's husband is "the Dark One" because he hates his name and is like Lin and he probably took Toph's last name to have a less embarrassing name, and he probably died before Lin was born because of the equalists.

Arranged marriage? Oh man, poor guy... Still, I'm kinda jealous. In the end though Toph is way to cool to be married to anyone.

Well I read somewhere that Bei Fong is of Chinese heritage and since she's still royalty it's plausible that she MUST keep her last name in order to preserve her royalty. And she was an only child e.o

People can be bor in marriage and have their mother's maiden name. We are never given evidence this is an old-fashioned society when it comes to gender roles (except Northern Water Tribe?) xD

But I can totally see Toph being both a bossy wife AND a single-mom... She is so hardcore she could do both! Your art style is amazing! :love:

The first panel is canon in my head.
I believe Toph would soften up slightly as in the "still brash, loud, but there´s a big maternal instinct under all the bravado"...
But Roku help the poor kid if he/she turns to be an Earthbender.
Also, tell your husband he´s awesome.
Good job!

Many noble families have any man marrying the female heir take the family name so they can keep their nobility.

Or, like she just said "We're getting married," she might've just said "My name's cooler, I'm keeping it." :XD:

Never heard of the arranged marriage thing for Toph. And I wouldn't buy her going for it unless she actually liked the guy anyway. :XD: Your doodles are really cute; love them!

i figured the bei fong name was because very few people in the avatar world have last names, so her husband didn't have a last name, and hers carried.

either way, this is hilarious. XD

We ARE given evidence that not many people in the Avaverse even HAVE last names. And matrilineal on the whole isn't required if the family is high status enough.

/though this would be hilarious and maybe kinda in-character

I'm pulling for Teo.
