  • She's the one villain I've never seen you talk about much, actually. What are your thoughts on Azula, her character arc, and her future, Deist? I personally have never been really sympathetic towards her, but I try to be nice to those who are-unless they are being unfair, and even then I do stay polite. I did like what they did with her in Smoke and Shadow, and wouldn't mind too much if that was her last appearance, though I would like more too.

    • On the one hand: I'm fairly sure Bryke have confirmed that she is, in fact, the product of having been groomed from infancy to be a tykebomb rather than just being irredeemably evil by nature.  On the other:  I've definitely called her a "vicious wounded eel-hound" (and possibly a "horrible little royal brat" or something along those lines) a few times; and she's not high on my antagonist sympathy list.

    • Hmm, thanks. And your thoughts on Smoke and Shadow?

      Hell if I know what she's playing at, aside from trying to screw with Zuko's mind and possibly sabotage him.  No idea as to how that dovetails with her established mom issues; but I get the distinct impression that it probably does somehow.

    • Huh. How do you think Sokka died?

    • To some degree, I like the idea that he died fending off the Red Lotus in 158.  But to some degree, that's a great big Do Not Want.

    • Who is your favourite Avatar, and why? The official discussion is getting kind of long and nasty.

      For me, it's Wan, and I think Yangchen was the best. But I really like all of them, even if some weren't that great at their job.

    • The reasons I'm not touching that thread are about half that it is getting ugly, about half that I really couldn't pick one.  I'm somewhat leaning towards Kyoshi—about half because of her memetic scariness, about half because she was canonically, to put it bluntly, a boss bitch who didn't afraid of anything.  (Also: just how the hell tall was she?  I've heard anywhere from "about eye-to-eye with Mako" to "would have a couple of inches on P'Li," with a slight bias towards the latter.)

    • Have you cosplayed as Ming Hua at Comic Con?

    • Not Comic-Con yet, unfortunately.  Some day.

    • What exactly was it about Zaheer that made you think of him as a 'pompous culture-vulture'?

    • Interesting thoughts on hate for LOK and the love for ATLA.

      Do not pity the dead Deist. Pity the living. And above all, pity those who remain tangled in wishes that can never be.

      He spouts poetry and is just generally wordy.  And he gushes about the Air Nomads, but cherry-picks their philosophy.  He's somewhere between the Avatarverse equivalent of a weeb, and the Avatarverse equivalent of a New Ager—except neither weebs nor New Agers tend to be straw-anarchist terrorists.

      Disappointed that they really didn't do anything with her as a character. I mean, she was pretty much just there to say "we don't do pre-emptive strikes any longer; call me back when the tin-plated bitch is actually attacking."

      Haha, that's very good. Although,well, I do like Izumi.

      It is a quote from Harry Potter, except with the 'pitiable's ideals switched around. The original quote is

      'And above all, pity those who live without love'.

      How did you not recognise it?!!!!

    • I haven't paid attention to Harry Potter in years.

    • The Cursed Child reading like...well, the work of someone who'd run out of ideas and was unwilling to admit as much...pretty much killed any interest I had in getting back into the franchise.  The difference between Delphi and a P'heerling is that it'd make more sense for there to be a P'heerling.

      Also, I literally hadn't read the books in years as it was.

    • Hahaha, yeah. It was pretty messy. Still, re-reading the books now, I'm finding they hold up pretty well, and am liking them a lot. I don't know how old you are-probably older then me-but just keep it in mind, I guess.
