While avoiding spoilers in the Avatar fandom lately has been somewhat akin to avoiding water in the Splash Zone at Seaworld, I have done so (save the peeps who ruined me on Haru's Very Manly Face Hair. Grr.)! And it was TOTALLY worth it!
PREPARE FOR A SPAZ ATTACK, JACK!
Awesome Avatar character family reunion LOLZ. Got to see all my fav peeps from past eps, and they all rocked out. What more can an Avatard ask for? (except for MOAR ZHAO PLZ)
First of all, YAAAAAY ZUKO. It had to happen sooner or later. He never looked sweeter than that one moment when he admitted he was Iroh's Man. Mai's gonna be pissed, tho. I was thrilled at Zuko using that technique Iroh taught him, coz SHIT, Ozai is FAST and STRONG.
Although, Ozai didn't do much this ep. Compared to Azula, Ozai is pretty hands off. I'd like to see him in action more. If he IS the primary villain, then I figure his strength and smarts ought to dwarf Azula's, but so far he hasn't really shown it. I DON'T want him to just stay a flat shadowy villain. I hope we get MUCH more into him as eps go by.
Sokka. Effin'. SHONE. (Suki-Doo, where ARE you???) Just when I think our guy can't get much better, he DOES (ps thanks Hakoda for takin' the fall wink wink). Just...just...yeah. You know what I mean. AWESOME. Nice job, Sokka.
You know what? Just ALL AROUND pats on the back. Everyone was great! Especially our hero, Aang! :*)
And WOW, is Aang's voice getting deep! Our boy might be going Barry White! How will Katara resist, LOL. Joke, shippers, back off! But seriously, I felt for the guy. THEY MADE AANG CRY, DAMMIT! It's okay, Aang, I still think you're cool. And I heart your new duds.
Wonder what's gonna happen next, what with poor Appa now posing as the new Magic School Bus? What are they gonna DO with all them kids? Hell...what are they gonna do with ZUKO?
AUGH I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE NEW EPS SDJAFJAFLAFHLASFJ!!! Hopefully, we won't get another ten month haitus. Seriously, they cannot milk this show any further. It's giving out powdered milk already, play the eps!
On the subject of Avatar
bending. Boy, it has gotten a lot more complex and cool since the start of this series, hasn't it? I especially love unique sub-bending techniques used by masters
Fire Electric bending.
Earth- Metal bending. (You know, I don't think Toph is the only one who knows this technique. I'm willing to bet my bottom dollar Bumi ((being the mad genius he is, and also being someone who has a very deep and thorough understanding of earthbending)) also knows this, and has been keeping this ace up his sleeve for when he escapes and lays the UNHOLY SMACKDOWN on New Ozai. In fact, I'll be downright dumbstruck if he doesn't!)
Water Blood bending. (by far the nastiest of the three, in my opinion)
Air - ?
What IS Air? I've accidentally read spoilers (you try NOT to in this fandom, ha!) for what its master sub-technique is, and it's a doozy. While it doesn't involve stopping breathing, it is VERY cool (assuming the spoiler is correct), and I cannot wait to see it in action. I just LOVE how thought out bending is becoming, don't you? :3
Hope you've been enjoying the spurge of art. First the Buff!Iroh binge, then the Mai binge! Oh, Fire Nation, you make such excellent people to poke fun of. Perhaps I shall return to one of my mainstays of fun, Zhao. My gallery has been sorely lacking love of him lately. Must amend.
Speaking of amending, I will be starting the next TRV chapter soon. Between Avatar art and the comic work I've had to do for art class, TRV just keeps sitting on the back burner. My poor little baby. *coddles needlessly*
Also, Pakkana will be on the way
I have two short comics in the works, but they probably won't be completed till mid to late December. I'd like to do some Hama work too
she's such an excellent character.
You will also be excited to know that in addition to all of this, over winter break I have an AVATAR PROJECT planned, much larger in scope than AVATAR GOES CARTOONY, but this will take some work and major juggling. I have no idea how I will quite pull this off
However, exciting as all this sounds, don't expect to much in the immediate futurefinals are approaching, so that means I have to hunker down for the Apocalypse.
On a last note, I leave you with this quiz! Take it! I know you have the free time if you're reading this crap! [link]
