Edit: EXCUSE ME, DID AVATAR JUST GIVE ME A SERIES OF FICLETS TOTALLY UNRELATED TO THE LARGER PLOT, BUT SIMPLY GORGEOUS IN REGARD TO CHARACTER EXPLORATION? THAT WAS WONDERFUL! Also: Oh, Zuko. And OH, Toph.
I am sure a select few of you will be glad to hear that I finally got into Avatar.
I am in fact watching s02 e9 as I type this.
Here's my breakdown:
UNCLE IROH! PLEASE BE MY UNCLE FOREVER AND EVER. YOU ARE AMAZING!
Lol, Zuko, I love you, you repressed little punk. I am also liking what the hair coming in does to your overall appearance. Majour props to your general fighting skills. And: your mum was awesome. I adore your sense of honour, you broken little thing, you.
Azula: I think you're fourteen, and you're an idiot. You're a stupid biatch. And an utter psycho.
Oh, Sokka. Never stop being awesome. You're my favourite of the trio ( I suppose you were meant to be easily loveable, so I ran into that knife with a seeing eye).
Toph (is that how you write her name?). You hilarious, egotistical little powerhouse.
Aang and Katara? You're alright, but I just feel distinctly *meh* about you. That's not your fault. In fact, there is nothing wrong with your characters at all. I'm just not getting a spark. I usually get like that with the main characters. I'm a support cast type of gal.
Took me pretty much until "The forest again" to genuinely care about Harry. Well, managed that one just in time to cry so much I feared de-hydrating myself to the point of unconsciousness. ("There has to be another way! There has to be another way! You don't have to do this! Stay with us!" she cried, all by her lonesome in her flat in the wee hours of the morning. Like a boss.)
Also: The Animation (zomg, colourschmemes and acting OH MY), the voice Actors' timing, the humour, the themes (girls are awesome; having a "handicap" doesn't make you weak, good ol' FRIENDSHIP AND HONOUR).
All in all: Avatar is amazing. I cannot wait to watch the movie and weep over how they raped the characters. That, too, feels oddly familiar... hm.
