Now Playing Tracks

I finished the first book of Legend of Korra:

  • At first I was like .__. but after the first episode I got really into it.
  • Bolin is great but the creators are trying too hard for him to be the next Sokka which makes me sad.
  • It should be illegal how attractive Mako is like seriously who let him look like that.
  • Any show that has J.K. Simmons doing a voice has my vote.
  • I love all the throwbacks.
  • Tenzin’s kids are so adorable.
  • When they were like “We’re almost there, General Iroh” it was Dante Basco’s voice I started freaking out I’m glad no one was there to witness it.
  • At first I really missed Aang but I love Korra now.
  • I love Pabu.
  • I think it’s cool that this one is like in the 20s.
  • And I think that pro bending was a really awesome idea.
  • This subject matter was really dark for a kid’s show and I’m really happy about it.
  • Um did that Sato guy really try to kill his own daughter?
  • And did Tarlock just kill himself and his brother?! I mean I’m loving the darkness of it all, thank you for not pandering.
  • I started book 2 but I’m not really feeling it…hopefully it gets better.

This scene still breaks my heart each and every single time I watch it.

Azula was a terrible, horrible person. She would have set the world aflame and laughed over the broken carcass of her brother.

But she was fourteen.

She was so ruined and twisted by her childhood and by her nation, driven to insanity by the expectations placed upon her.

Azula was bad and yet I can’t help but feel so terribly sorry for her.

"I don’t have sob stories like all of you."

SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN WHAT

"My own mother….thought I was a monster.
She was right, of course, but it still hurt.”

actually, i think one of the shows strengths is that they didn’t shy away from what a horrible tragedy this was. even though she was clearly a villain and did unspeakably awful things, this scene was still framed as sad. there was no celebrating- they just look at her sadly.

the music for the battle that leads up to this moment is sad too- it’s an epic battle, visually probably one of the biggest things done in the entire series, and they could have played it with thumping, energetic, dangerous music. but instead it’s quiet and somber. because the whole scenario is heartbreaking, and they know it.

i think the fact that a kid’s show had so much respect for it’s viewers and their ability to understand the complexity of this situation is what makes avatar great.

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.
