WILL PEOPLE PLEASE STOP LECTURING ME ABOUT BIRDS

fire-lord-frowny:

I mean like, one of the main reasons I could never quite get into LoK before was because the characters lacked conviction. I felt like I didn’t know them; the things they loved, hated, what motivated them, what they’re scared of, WHO they’re scared of, what happened to them, etc…

All we got was a few mentions of a couple tragic backstories; Mako and Bolin losing their parents, and Asami losing her mom. Beyond that, there was no sort of insight into who these characters were and what made them tick. 

The closest we got was in the goddamn season finale when they told the story of Yakone and Noatok and Tarlok. That shit was well done, and again, it left me pretty baffled as to why the rest of the season was so average. 

And then in season 2, it was pretty much the same thing; cheap comedy (and wow, making fun of a dude for being in an emotionally abusive relationship with a “crazy” girl? Not cool. In fact, I think that’s THE MOST uncool thing they’ve ever done in LoK or ATLA), shallow characters, no development, plot holes, convenient cop-outs to avoid actually addressing said plot-holes…

AND THEN THEY TOLD THE STORY OF WAN AND SUDDENLY THEY DEVELOPED WAN’S CHARACTER AND WORLD MORE IN TWO EPISODES THAN THEY DEVELOPED KORRA IN AN ENTIRE SEASON AND A HALF LIKE WHAT???? 

WHAT????????????????

So again I was all super confused, like wtf??? I was trying to give them the benefit of the doubt and just say that well, it’s hard to duplicate the awesomeness of ATLA, so I’ll give them a break and accept the fact that they’ve just sort of run out of compelling ideas. BUT THEN THEY TURN AROUND AND DROP RANDOM BOUTS OF INCREDIBLENESS ON US AND IT’S JUST LIKE WHAT??? WHAT??? NO. 

And then the rest of that season went back to mediocre. 

And now here we are with season 3 and they’ve randomly decided to whip out some badass characters, some relatable backstories, some sweet and cutesy relationships, some exciting action… I just, I don’t get it. I actually feel connected to many of the characters now (except Mako, man, I just CAN’T get with Mako for some reason) and I care about them and, idk, it’s great. I even have feels for the villains. 

I DON’T GET IT.

Not pathetic at all dogs are wonderful and largely due to their unconditional love :)

When I was in the 10th grade my older brother brought home this stray/lost pitbull/boxer mix (probably) that he found on the streets in DC and we kept her in the garage and I was just sitting out with the dog at night and she fell asleep with her head resting on my knee and oh my god it was the best thing in the world. She didn’t even know me but she wanted my company and ugh I just wanna cry thinking about how wonderful that was.

Listening to angsty, douchebaggy white boy songs from the early 2000s because lol.

I don’t know but I just started the third season of Korra on your recommendation and I’m hoping you’re right. 1st two were disappointing.

YOOOOOOOOO season 3 is on point as a motherfucker, and that seems to be the general consensus among the fans - especially those of us who were “meh” about the first two (all of us lol). 

It’s good, okay? 

It’s good. 

I want a doggy so that I can be loved unconditionally by something warm-blooded. 

On a scale of 1-10 how pathetic is that?

I remember when I used to be all like “oh hi come follow me introduce yourself lol I love friends!”

But now I’m just like

wtf are you doing here

But for real who the FUCK are you people. 

I know like eight of you out of 560. 

I only follow 66 blogs.

WHO ARE THE REST OF YOU. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE. WHY DO YOU CARE. I’M SO CONFUSED???

What’s funny is that I spend most of my tumblr time on my ATLA blog now. 

Much more fun. 

Much more chill. 

Y’all here be making me feel like I’m a 55 year old going through a midlife crisis or something.
