ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS WHEN I’M ON MY PERIOD I CAN BARELY MOVE OKAY DO YOU HONESTLY FUCKING THINK I AM GOING TO TURN MYSELF INTO A PRETZEL WHEN NIAGRA FALLS IS COMING OUT OF MY LADY PARTS NO THANK YOU OMFG
just for that comment oh my jesus
“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”
this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.
Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of those incredibly rare shows that completely nailed all the fundamentals of good and rich storytelling.
and then they made legend of korra
I am sick, SICK of people ripping on Legend of Korra. You know what? It’s true. It’s fucking true that Korra will never be Aang and the LOK series don’t hold up to the same standards as Atla. BUT IT DOES NOT MATTER. If you wanted to watch a show that was an exact copy of the first series, then you might as well go back and watch Atla all over again.
Korra is her own person who has her own story and her own way of doing things. She’s not Aang and though she has learned from her past lives, in the end her choices are her own and she has developed in her own unique way just like Aang did. She may be the avatar but she’s also a human woman and she makes mistakes just like anyone else. But, at least she’s learned from those mistakes. Maybe the first season was kind of shooty in a few places but it wasn’t fucking terrible and the second season has really opened doors. It’s come a long way and by God if another person tries to compare two, I’m going to eat your brain.

He’s so jittery! I love it! Please, Wreck-Gar, sweetie, you’re talking WAY too much… and you smell terrible. I love you, but you really need to work on that.
(Sorry about taking so long with this! Now I’m going to work on Scrapper and Mixmaster for scribbles-and-slash! Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about any of you~)
