Avatar: Last Airbender 30 Challenge
Day 30: Overall Great times
When I think of Avatar: the Last Airbender, I think of the amazing show that, if anything shaped me into what I am today. Without Avatar I would not listen to the music I do, or probably write or draw as well as I do. Of course, I have moved on to other shows, Avatar was the start of it all. I don’t know what I would be if it wasn’t for Avatar, and I always thank Mike and Bryan when I sit back and think of their wonderful show, for it has done so much for me.
ATLA was something my family would huddle around the TV. We would watch it over pizza or snuggle into the couch. It was from the first episode too. Though I have no idea why in the world was wanted to watch it, but we’ve watched it all the way through. Avatar had done that for a lot of families, and that’s why it was such an amazing series. If there is one thing ATLA could say, was it was a family show, and not just because it was for all ages, but because families literally watched it. It was mainly targeting children between 11-15 for the most part, but everyone loved it. The story had a plot as well and everyone was aching to know what was going to happen, and the characters were just loveable. There are hardly any shows today that I can think of that are cartoons and have an amazing storyline like Avatar.
I’ll always remember fangirling over everything and wanting every piece of merchandise I could get my hands on. I remember walking up before school and reading fanfics and looking at art. I remember finding out about Korra and practically screaming because there was going to be more. I wasn’t surprised when the fandom picked up the bits of information and ran with it and still do. Avatar was the best thing that would ever have happened to me, and I’m so blessed by the fact I discovered it when I did.
Of course, I’m the only one in family who freaks out as such about news of the Avatar related world, and I hope Korra is everything Avatar was for me. I’m in college now, all grown up, but I’m looking forward to huddling on the couch and watching Korra with my family.
