Guys! Guys! There's a new show coming you might find interesting:

Avatar: The Legend of Korra. Also, an interview with Mike and Bryan in which they discuss it further, and pointedly avoid answering questions regarding the movie that is in no way related to their awesome, awesome show.

Let's say you are currently pursuing what is, to you, a new way of fannish expression.* Okay, so you've been pursuing it for a little bit now, but always in seekrit. Now, let's say that you've finished a project, in a fandom you are new to, and you really want to post it, but you can't quite find a beta. Say this is your second such project, but the first is at beta -- but you're still pretty sure you're really rather rubbish.

[Poll #905770]

* I have done fic, I have done static graphics, I haven't drawn in years, and I don't meta. I think you can all see where this is heading.

As may be inferred from my last post, I have entered into a whirlwind relationship with Avatar: the Last Airbender. What remains to be seen is whether it will be a lasting liaison, or merely a tumultuous affair which fades to friendship or indifference.

In the meantime, though, I though I'd introduce you.

"Isn't that a Nickelodeon kids' show?" you ask.

"Well, yes," I reply. "But amongst its strengths are four things that will hook me every time: plot arcs, continuity, a depth of mythology and world building, and amazing characterization. )

In summary: I think I like it for most of the same reasons that I love Life on Mars and Dead Like Me, and am completely enamoured of it.

Yuletide recs, hurrah! 12 stories, 10 fandoms.

A Thousand Miles (Avatar: the Last Airbender*) Iroh and Zuko, immediately after the Agni Kai. This story breaks me in the best possible way. Iroh does what only he can, and Zuko is so very adrift and hurting. This is full of wonderful little details, and I think this is probably the way that it happened.

Days of rest and gladness (Avatar: the Last Airbender) Momo! In a direct contrast to the above story, this is sweet and warm, like a summer's day or a favourite blanket.

A Jianghu Fairytale (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) Shu Lien and Li Mu Bai, how they met and how they will be remembered. Wistful and restrained.

Lives by Breaking (Chronicles of Narnia) Loss and love and forgetting. It never was a fairy tale, and this story gets that, gets being an adult in the body of a child and a child in the body of a monarch.

Into Seas Without a Shore (Dead Like Me) I may be biased here, because this was the story written for me, and I love it dearly. George, Joy, and Betty. It's about holding on and moving forward and letting go. There's a bit for everyone here, and the dialogue is perfect.

The Manipulated Dead (Donnie Darko) Sharp and twisted, just like the movie. It's like living inside of Donnie's head, leaving you off-balance and looking for something solid.

How Everything Turns Away (Heroes) Nathan, Daedalus, family, and hope at the end of all things.

"And the church bells softly chime." (Life on Mars) I'm picky about LoM fic, but this is just lovely. Perfect Chris voice, perfect Sam and Gene interaction.

His Girl on the Other Side of the World (Pattern Recognition) Sweet and floaty, with gorgeous prose.

Capriciousness (American Gods) Bast, in the new world. The entire piece feels delightfully feline.

Deep with the First Dead Lies London's Daughter (Torchwood) Ianto and Jack, immediately after Canary Wharf. Sharp like glass.

Rubik's (Torchwood) Gwen in pieces, and Suzie.

* It occurs to me, looking back at my LJ, that I have not actually mentioned my growing adoration for Avatar. It makes me want to talk in a "______ is love" sort of manner. I really need to find and flist some Avatar people so that I can express my squee.
