- My hobbies are drama, singing and watching a lot of movies and TV-shows while drinking Coca-Cola
- My favorite TV-shows are.... you guessed it ATLA and LoK, but I'm also a really big fan of Game of Thrones and Batman TAS (I f*cking love Mark Hamill)
- My favorite movies are The Dark Knight, Princess Mononoke
Me and ATLAEdit
While I did watch some of it when I was a kid, I didn't become quite the fan I am before I started wtahcing the episodes online a while ago. Of course I felt a little lonely, being the only one in my school who constantly watched and fangirled about ATLA... But it didn't take long before I found the wiki and the rest is history.
What I truly admire about the show is mostly it's creativity. I haven't seen elemental manipulation like this before, and the Four Nations and their cultures fascinate me very much. The show was compelling, action-filled and dramatic and the ending was more than satisfying in my opinion (while still leaving a little mystery. So I'll give it a 9+ out of ten :)

Me and LoKEdit
I don't know if I have much back history to this; All I did was found out that there was a sequel to the Avatar series, was all like: "Wtf? Awesome!" and then watched it. Nothing really to add.
While I find the show to be EXTREMELY lacking, horribly paced and not a compatable sequel to the awesome ATLA, I still think there is some positive stuff to say about this. The animation is AMAZING, a great improvement from the last series and the designs are just beautiful (I frickin adore Korra's and Lin's designs). I think the soundtrack is also brilliant, capturing the atmosphere perfectly. And I also think the things the show tried to takcle (prejudice against benders, Korra trying to learn airbending) were very, very interesting but sadly executed poorly. I do also think that some of the characters have a lot of potential even though they weren't developed and written well. There you have it, positive stuff about LoK! It's barely seen these days. I give the show a 5+ out of 10 (the + for effort)

Shipping has earned a really bad rep, but I still consider myself a shipper. I don't know why, it's like a guilty pleasure of mine. I still think it should be handeled maturly and with humility, and the wars are one of the worst things a fandom could have. So here are my ships:
- Linzin (when it was canon)
