So, its time to come clean....  
About my closet Avatar obsession. 

Yes, when I say Avatar, I mean Avatar the Last Airbender. I think its awesome. I've just never stated it on this blog because...well, not for any particular reason. I just never got brought up because LJ was always the home of my FMA obsession, and my avatar obsession has largely been concentrated on tumblr (more funny gifs).

AND THEN LEGEND OF KORRA CAME OUT. 

Yes, I am crazy obsessed with this show, to the point where I cannot remember how many times I watched the premiere. IT. IS. AMAZING. 

So, long story short...I have not been on LJ much at all because OMFGKORRA. (Also I got a new job in DC that takes me 2 hours to commute, so I get home and pretty much crash every day.)

But that is about to change. I am going to make an effort to finish my long-running FMA fanfics, (I'm actually working on chapter 9 of Finding Sunshing After Rain at this very moment) because it hurts me to just leave it hanging, and I might get back into the fandom a bit. 

But I really won't be on LJ much besides that because I'm too busy hemorrhaging Legend of Korra feelings over on tumblr.

*cough* Your secret is safe with me... I'm still a little biased towards Aang - and I am dying to find out what happened to him - but the new show is pretty good and may grow on me.

(*Fellow closet Avatar fan*)

From what I know, Aang died young because the 100 years in the iceberg shortened his lifespan (Avatars live longer than normal humans, apparently; Avatar Kyoshi lived to be 230 years old and was the longest lived Avatar).

WHY IS KORRA SO FLAWLESS NO SHOW SHOULD BE THIS GOOD.

If we assume Korra to be 16 or so, which is when she would normally have been told she was an avatar if she hadn't already known, then Aang would have died at 66. That's so young! *Waaah!*

Of course, while watching the first episode, everyone in my house cried out when Katara said that her brother was 'gone'. *SNIFF* I was heartbroken!
Kit: love booksinulovinkit on April 23rd, 2012 01:22 am (UTC)
Korra's 17, so yeah, Aang did die at 66. He didn't get to meet his grandchildren. T_T

Yeah, I was so sad when I found out Sokka wasn't still alive. I wish he was; he would've been an awesome grumpy, senile old man.

OME, YES! He would have been hysterical as an cranky, old fart! Awww! I would have loved to have seen it. *sniff*

I guess this means I'm out of the closet too... Maybe now I can finish up my Avatar art and fic and post it? *gulp*

Do iiiiiiiit.

You just finish bemoaning the fact that you're being devoured by another fandom and you want others to follow you down the same path?!?!

*Come to the dark side, Luke...*

I am a bad example and you should not listen to anything I say.

But seriously, DO IIIIIIIIIIIIT.

your secret is safe with us. though i'll miss you on LJ

I still come online every once in a while, but while I'm obsessive over Avatar, I don't really come on LJ much at all.

I will be online more often to finish up my FMA fanics. I only have 6 more chapters to write of Finding Sunshine, and there was a few oneshot ideas I had in the back of my head I wanted to get out.

It kills me to leave something unfinished, so I figured I should go back and finish it while the fandom is still here.

yeah I hear you. I have a lot of unfinished Buffy the Vampire Slayer fic but unlike anime fans those fans stick around for years

Already knew about your Avatar/Korra obsession, haha. Don't be ashamed of it! :D
Kitinulovinkit on April 23rd, 2012 01:46 am (UTC)
If you've seen my tumblr then yeah, you've probably seen me go "KORRAAAAALJLJDJFLKDJFKLJFKL" on a daily basis.

I am in total agreement over the awesomeness of Korra. I'm so happy to have a strong kick-butt female! (And she has blue eyes, like me!) Avatar is so excellent and done so well. I love the animation. The new characters are growing on me surprisingly fast, too! At first I wasn't sure how I felt about a new series but I instantly fell in love. I think it's sad that Aang died, especially so young (and without meeting his grandchildren!) but I'm glad we weren't left hanging with what happened to the others besides him (like Sokka), even if they're already gone, too... But I'm thinking Aang will come back to talk to Korra from the spirit world?! Wouldn't that be AWESOME?! And who is the leader of this rebellion, Amon? And how did he get his power? And are Aang and Katara's other two kids airbenders or waterbenders? (Or is that for sure that they're waterbenders because Korra said Tenzin is the "only" airbender to teach her?) And I can't help wondering... is there some relation between Mako and Zuko...? (They kind of have some similarities...) Sorry for rambling, but I love Avatar, too, it's so awesome-!!
