Welcome to my profile,
I got into ATLA back when the series began originally in 2005. However I lost track of it in 2006 when I began to focus my life on other things. At the start of 2011, however, I began re-watching it on Nicktoons Network, and became rehooked quite instantly. The show is one of Nick's best creations of all-time, and one of its last best. Now, I am watching Legend of Korra heartily - Book One had promise but fell apart at the end, Book Two was really messy, confusing, and overall "bleh", but Book Three was quite impressive. Hoping Book Four brings us to a strong close.
My favorite ATLA character is Katara, and my favorite LoK character is Asami. My favorite nation is the Earth Kingdom. Nice and large, a lot to do, a lot to see...from Omashu to Ba Sing Se...and Kyoshi Island doesn't look too bad either. ^^"
Be good to me, and I'll be good to you. :)
Be bad to me, and I'll have to sic Angry Katara on you. Trust me, you wouldn't like Katara when she's angry. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Well, as some of these fancy boxes above doth illustrate, I am around on this wiki with many things I'm at on a daily basis. Primarily though, I am an administrator of this little place, so, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask - I'm glad to help anyone who needs it. I'm here to help this community out the best I can.

Plans for the future
Using my history degree as a platform, I hope to get into professional work with research, book-writing, or professorship.
Subject to change at any time.
When it comes to shippings...
Kataang -- See userbox
Maiko -- A childhood crush re-kindled, and they balance each other well. Plus, Zuko and Mai help open each other up, giving them a deep understanding as well.
Yukka -- A prince and a princess who developed a deep care for one another. Relationship development may not have been the greatest, but still, it was awesome. Too bad it can't be real.
Sukka -- It's canon, and their feelings were mutual. I can accept this. However, the relationship to me was rushed, and it was more on the shallow side.
Do not support:
Zutara -- These two are very headstrong, and Zuko is quite close-minded, not much like Katara. These two are good as friends, but nothing more. Also, past misgivings may linger and these could come up in arguments. Water and fire are opposites, yes, but "opposites attract" to me is invalid -- it doesn't apply across the board. Plus, "opposites attract" also goes beyond elements. Very much do not get its large-scale popularity.
Taang -- Who in the holy hell came up with this? Again, you can't go with opposites attract just because of earth and air in this case. These two are /way/ opposite, and their relationship would fail. This is just a tossed-in ship for Zutarians to satisfy theirs. Sorry, wouldn't work.
Tokka -- Very overrated to me. This ship is totally one-sided. Further, Toph does not seem to have a love feeling for Sokka at the end of the show. Do not understand its popularity at all.
Legend of Korra shippings:
Boleska -- No no no. A thousand times no. The first four episodes of Book Two said enough. Don't even want to hear about their interactions at the end - it's a load of crap, especially after Bolin had referred to her as crazy before he ran off. I don't buy what happened at the end, sorry.
Makorra -- I can't stand this ship, it's really unhealthy for especially Korra, who wound up getting seriously softened and pulled in all the wrong directions because of it. She became a damsel in distress and later overly whiny...I had found her to develop far more on her own. Mako - I can't stand him and clearly has no problem tossing her aside for Asami or whomever his flavor of the month is.
Masami -- Don't like it either, and like Makorra, it is far more Mako than in this case, Asami. Ms. Sato deserves better than this guy. For a little while, it looked like this ship had potential, but, Mako soon just left Asami in the dust and fell all over Korra. Then in Book Two, he did the very same - as soon as Korra came back, he fell right back over her after restarting his relationship with Asami. Not to mention, he couldn't even give the courtesy of telling Korra the truth about Asami! Asami, I hope you find someone who will truly appreciate you and not just leave you in the dust for someone else.
Korrasami -- I've never normally shipped slash, but this is my first pick for it. The two showed the potential for good friendship and chemistry in the first book and it came full circle throughout the second half of the series. The development was there and I'm glad to see these two bring it all together into a relationship.
Bopal -- Eh...I liked this one in Book Three, but between Bolin completely misunderstanding Opal throughout several points of Book Four and Opal also declaring that only risking his life would result in forgiveness, I lost support for this one.
