+ I watched Glee. ( spoilers for Dream On )
+ Apparently marathoning Avatar: TLA has triggered some kind of hysteria in my brain that I didn't get when I was watching the show from week-to-week. I mean, I still recognized at the time that it is one of the best total-package television shows ever created, but I wasn't tempted to get into fandom or anything - partly because I'd heard said fandom was CRAZY, and partly because I was over in HP fandom, not really shopping for other fandoms, and besides no one I knew was watching/it's rarely fun to try and fan a show all by yourself.
Right now? I am experiencing an ALL-CONSUMING LOVE AND GLEE that almost makes me wish I'd participated in the cray-cray fandom at the time. Maybe the recent swell of fail!movie news is throwing me into a more intense love of the real series, or maybe I just like being able to squee along with other people, idk.
I figured Doctor Who was going to be my all-consuming Merlin hiatus distraction this year, as SGA and BSG were last year. And while Who is still my favorite show airing at the moment, my fannish ardor is cooling to the level I might have for any other show, being replaced with renewed SOKKA KATARA AANG TOPH AZULA ZUKO MAI TY LEE fervor. For now, anyway.
Which is to say, if anyone has links to their favorite fics or rec lists, I would be very much obliged. I don't even know where to start. My fave characters are Katara, Sokka, Aang, Toph, Azula, Mai, Ty Lee, Zuko, Iroh... EVERYONE, BASICALLY. And their relationships with each other. Aang/Katara transcendental loooove, Mai/Zuko adorableness, Sokka/pretty much anyone, Azula/Ty Lee, Azula's fascinatingly fucked-up dynamics with pretty much everyone she ever met, 'specially the other Fire Nation chicas. Lahv, lahv, lahv.
Also, everyone should watch Avatar. No such thing as too late. The end.
