You KNOW Avatar has changed your life when....
« on: January 18, 2013, 01:47:58 PM »
This is a combined game for ATLA and Korra to put down your thoughts when something you see or hear in the real world makes you flash back to the series with a fun or poignant memory.

I'll start.

I know Avatar has changed me when DC School Superintendent Kya Henderson (actually spelled 'Kaya' but pronounced 'Kya') was on the radio news. I completely missed what she said but I thought "Wow! So that's what Kya did when she grew up!!"

Who's next?

When you accidentally call your friend Katara...several times or when you stay up until 4 am spazzing about new Korra episodes with friends. ;)

When you and your friends play the "who would win in a fight" game and 9 times out of ten you pick Aang as a combatant. Also when you Aang wins 9 out of 10 of those fights. (which he would)

-When you have to write sentences in logic class and you use airbenders as an example (this sounds confusing, and its hard to explain--if you wanna know, PM me)
-when you see your brother's new Tae Kwon Do form/move thing,and  you try to see which bending style it is

You KNOW Avatar has changed your life when....

- When someone puts his hand on your forehead and you are afraid that he could take "something" away
- When you put your feet on the ground and hope deeply to feel other people around you
- When you are afraid of people with strange looking masks

-When you join an avatar site and end up meeting the love of your life.
-When you have to write an essay for your religion class and get to use ATLA as the subject.
-When you use the martial arts in ATLA as a presentation for your mass media class.
-When you Waterbend in the shower/pool.
-When you have to write a condolence letter for your death and dying class and you write to Katara about her loss of Aang.
-When you learn reiki and pretend you're healing with waterbending.

When people talk about James Cameron's Avatar and simply call it "Avatar" , you weren't sure which Avatar they were talking about.

(ATLA is not famous here. So I should be able to guess which. But my mind didn't agree with my head. )

When you try to get several of your family members to watch ATLA because you want more people to talk to about it in real life.

This is me.

I'll add one of my own- When despite how good a show might be (looking at you Breaking Bad), I never get the same feels I got watching ATLA for the first time. I don't think I'll ever be that hopelessly obsessed or in love with a show again. I got serious post Avatar depression for about 6 months after finishing the show (completely serious, I'd have dreams about ATLA where it continued and I somehow was in the ATLA universe and then I'd wake up and soul crushing disappointment would hit me like a rock).

So far it's worked with two neices and two nephews and possibly my sister and brother in law. Even one of my brothers seemed interested a while ago. I got another brother into it back when ATLA first started airing.

A ship between a guy and a talking spirit-kite is something you're totally up for.

Only Avatar could ever pull something like that off and get nearly everyone on board.

Oh so true. I don't think I've seen a ship this weird yet great since Celty/Shinra from Durarara, because Celty is a mythological creature who despite looking human doesn't actually have a head. She's basically the headless horseman only she has a bike and she's hot.
