Thank you, Mike and Bryan. by an-angels-tears Thank you, Mike and Bryan. by an-angels-tears
I love Avatar the Last Airbender, and I know a lot of people feel the same. But I've recently come across some very saddening phrases, such as "Screw you, Bryke!" and "I'm dropping this show!"

I mean, because a theory or ship doesn't happen... because your favorite character isn't acting how you'd like... is that any reason to hate the creators? Hate a show you've possibly loved since the beginning? (Falling out of love with it is one thing, but choosing to hate it due to a selfish want that has been denied?)

Above everything else, aren't we all just fans of the same show?

So I wanted to draw something that would express my thanks and love. I cannot imagnine what I'd be doing if I had never gotten into ATLA, honestly, and sometimes I don't want to. The finale is coming up, and I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm just excited to see the story tie together. It's their story, and I think they did a darn good job at telling it.

Edit: Wow! Thanks for over 400 faves, you guys!

I totally agree with you 100% on everything you have said here.

Me being a Kataanger myself, I am very disappointed by some rabid Kataangers' behavior to the Zutarians. It makes us look immature. But same goes for some of the rabid Zutarians, who are constantly bashing us and saying "OMG KATAANG IS SO GROSS AND BAAAD LOLLOL ZUTARA ISH HAWT AND AWESOMEE".

What the hell?

And again, same goes for Kataangers.

I just wish we could all get along with each other and hold hands and scream "AVATAR!" as an Avatar community.

Situations like bashing each other constantly reminds me of something that Guru said:
"The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation. Things we think are separate and different when really it is one and the same. We are all one people. But we live as if divided."

Did people learn anything from that episode at all? It's not just some spiritual mumbo-jumbo. Avatar gives us lessons that we should take and consider doing seriously with open arms.
It doesn't matter to me who ends up with who. I'm ecstatic that Kataang happened in the end, really, I am. But if it were to be Zutara or Taang or whatever, I would be a little disappointed but nonetheless be okay with it. I just wish that those rabid Kataangers or Zutarians would do the same.

Basically, both sides have their crazies--as sad as it is. I just wish we could all just get along. Like what you like, you know? Don't we all love the same show?

Thank you. :D

I know exactly what you mean, because there were many people who hated the awesome Avatar finale, JUST BECAUSE ZUKO AND KATARA DIDN'T GET TOGETHER!! Honestly, these people need to relax, STFU, and enjoy the series as a whole.

I completely agree with you. We should all just support the show for what it is. I love it no matter what happens, because they make it so real. We aren't gonna get everything we want in life, which is what they portray in the show. If people don't want to accept reality, then go on and stop watching the show, but don't blame the creators for their ideas. They can't please everyone. Being a future animator myself (hopefully) I completely understand. I would hate if people told me they hated my show just cuz two characters of mine didn't love one another. Or if they hated filler episodes. They have to have them sometime, like it or not.
Great job with this picture, it looks great! :D

You know...My OTP did not happen....But I told my self, "I am an Avatard first, Zutarian second." If you hate the show cause your ship didn't happen...then I guess you weren't much of a fan.

The drawing is so cute! Love Toph!

you shouldn't love a show because fo the shipping, you should love it for the show itself...I've gotten ticked with Naruto lately because lately the shippers are trying to eat each other alive (sigh) it gets tedious to love a show and have others whine over the shipping they want.
