Hey everyone, I was going to post a sort of update today about what I've been "up to" for the last year, but it's getting late so that might wait till tomorrow. Instead, I'll talk briefly about something that's been bothering me for the last couple of others. Well, not bothering...uh, anyway. You'll see what I mean.
So a lot of you would be fans of Avatar (The Last Airbender variety, not the James Cameron variety). And I am too, but until today I had only seen all of Book 1 and I believe 6 episodes of Book 2. It's the last days of my holidays, so I'm trying to cram in as much of it before I go back (though it'll only week 1 argh I'll talk about this later).
But I just got up to Book 2 Episode 16, ie "Appa's Lost Days"...and before this I always really enjoyed Appa's character, I just thought he was well designed and executed and all that. He actually might be my favourite character, bizarrely, so far. But seeing that episode...for me it was really distressing. I mean usually I'm nowhere near as emotional about the cratoon medias, that's usually left to live action (Ricky Gervais' Derek, that was also an extremely touching series). But yeah, this episode was just done so well, it was painful to watch as anything. It just perfectly encapsulated animal cruelty, distress and loss, and just...sigh. The feels, man.
...please don't tell me it gets worse. I was enough of a blubbering mess before.
Anyway, hi everyone! I'll be around for the next week, don't know what that'll mean but anywho. Talk again tomorrow!
