Take a break, Lin by kelly1412 Take a break, Lin by kelly1412
Sorry this fanart itself has become a sort of Spoiler.
To find out what really happened there, you have to watch ep10!
Please note the words below contain a fair amount of spoilers, so if you haven't watch ep10 of Legend of Korra yet, I strongly recommend not to read!

I know everyone is drawing this, but I just can't help myself not to...
Lin, you're my HERO!!! And really Toph's girl!!

"You did a great job, my girl
Now, have a good rest..."

OMG, I feel so hurt and sad now!!! I needed to draw this to comfort myself and the people who got hurt by the new episode.

OK, to be honest, this is the first time LOK really touched my heart and made me want to cry. I actually expected to see Lin sacrifice herself for the Avatar at a certain point in the show, but I didn't expect it to come so quickly. Even though I prepared for this moment, I still feel deeply hurt when I really see it.
I don't how Toph will feel seeing her daughter do all this. Guess she will be so proud of Lin, and heart broken at the same time.

Like mother, like daughter.
Toph was a hero of Awesomness, and Lin is a hero of sadness.

Lin is such a fantastic character, a tragic hero also, my favorite character in LOK so far, and the oldest character I've ever loved. Toph seems so strong and unstoppable, but Lin on the other hand doesn't always win the fight, but she dares to face battles that she knows she's gonna lose, and she sacrificed her most important thing to save her most important person and his family, which makes me admire her even more.

Beifong are the best!!
(But who can carry on the legacy now...)

and, I got the feeling that she will got her bending back later on.

The blowing white bubble implies her melted bending... I still need to touch this up.

I was a bit annoyed by the last shot, I mean that's definitely a highlight of the whole episode, and I screamed out when I heard that voice, you know what I mean. but I wish they could have given Lin a bit more time and let the sadness last/hold longer before that exciting moment hit...
