soon after the series ended, i found myself quickly growing cynical: about the fandom mostly, but it bled into my opinion of the series itself. "mark watches avatar" truly did remind me why i gave a shit in the first place. i mean, you found something positive to say about "the great divide." i haven't heard anyone say ANYTHING positive about "TGD" in five fucking years. obviously, it'll suffer in comparison to "the blind bandit" or "the boiling rock part 2," but still. well shit, how about those reviews of the first two episodes? you were all like, "i know this kid's the avatar! why hide it?" and it was JUST the right question and suddenly the glory of season one was made apparent to me. so much information in season one that i just took for granted.

and that's the other thing. i've been a fan for like, a hundred years now (approx.). as much time as i've spent obsessing over the characters and their motivations (okay, mostly their romantic inclinations), as much time as i've spent pretending i could earthbend or playing waterbenders with my little sister at the public pool, i've never really THOUGHT about avatar. occasionally i'll get a brief glimpse of insight, but i rarely considered its narrative structure, its storytelling devices, the thematic parallels, what have you. your reviews have been remarkably insightful and endlessly illuminating, even if i did already know zuzu was gonna turn out alright.

your enthusiasm is infectious. thank you.

to commemorate (mourn, really) the end of mark watches avatar, i made an AMV. it's my first, but i hope ya'll enjoy it.

i have to admit, i was a little skeptical about the whole "liveblog" concept. but this was A MILLION FUNS. A MILLION OF THEM.

i just now realized i could go back and re-read the comments in time with the show. i tried to keep up with both, but i still missed about 3000 comments.

i gotta take a breath.
