Miss Pauling and Medic as waterbenders (teacher/student), part of my TF2 Secret Santa gift for madjesters1!
My thoughts are that Miss Pauling would already be really talented at offensive waterbending like those ice spikes so he’d mainly be trying to teach her defensive bending and water healing. She’d pick up the defensive stuff easily but the healing she’s not very good at; something to do with the fact that she is extremely practical and guided by logic and won’t open herself up emotionally, because I feel like water healing would require being in touch with that part of yourself. She tries very hard but continues to do it wrong and becomes frustrated. This would of course result in a final climactic scene where he’s injured and dying and it finally clicks with her when it really counts and she saves him (and I may or may not have sketched that out already…..)
