But still, that is some creepy eugenics theme going on in the Equalist movement. It would scare the hell out of me if someone wanted to remove a part of me in the name of ‘equality’.
they would totally try to take Julian’s bending
(water bc he’s a *~healer~* and air as an enhancement extra that he has to keep secret)
This might be an unpopular opinion and I don’t even have any personal explanation for it, but I find something about the word ‘healer’ really wanky. Usually when something annoys me I can verbalise why, and since I can’t do that in this case I usually keep a lid on it, but I just felt like sharing it this once.
Julian would only use his airbending as a last resort, like when the Equalist jump him outside his clinic.
And Garak can be the agent going undercover in the Equalist movement, sent by the City Council. He rescues Julian from his attackers, and is intrigued by him having control over two elements despite their already being an Avatar.
Maybe because ‘healer’ has the connotation that there is something wrong with you, something that need to be fixed for you to be let back in society with everyone else. Considering that there are many things that do need to be managed by medication/therapy, but doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be considered a part of and take part in society as a whole, that could be a valid point.
I’ve begun to feel that ‘healer’ is a strange word in the last few months. A physical therapist is different from a thoracic surgeon from a psychiatric nurse from a pharmacy technician from an EMT. But when you hear ‘healer’, it rarely brings up the above, even though they are part of the health professions. You just think something like a primary care physician, or maybe a trauma surgeon, but hardly ever anyone that isn’t a doctor. Or maybe I’m just nitpicking.
