I've been known to be a talkative guy, but I tend to keep my nose out of things I'm not involved in. However, the amount of hatred and general anger going on in the wiki has gotten to be too much. Can't just all get along with each other instead of getting into pointless arguments? (if you haven't seen the recent war room discussions: here you are)
The admins should not be worshiped as gods. On the same note, they should not be held to a god-like standard. Just because their names are in gold doesn't mean they're perfect. People make mistakes. People do things they regret. And people have pride: not everyone wants to admit they were wrong. Don't forget all the contributions the admins have made over one petty argument.
Although no one should…

I know it's been a while since the finale, but there remains one plot point that does not sit well for me: Korra's sudden ability to airbend. Why? By my thinking it should be impossible.
I've heard it said that because Korra had never airbent before, she hadn't yet "unlocked" the ability, thus when Amon took her bending he only took earth, water, and firebending because they were they only elements she knew how to bend. This seems to make sense, unless we consider this quote "Even the separation of the four elements is an illusion. If you open your mind, you will see that all the elements are one, four parts of the same mold." Guru Pathik's wisdom appears to explain how the Avatar is able to bend all four elements. It leads me to believe tha…Read more >
Last week nearly everyone was in a buzz over what would happen in the finale. Everything I heard was “Amon this” “Korra that” yada yada yada…
But now, all anyone wants to talk about is the “jerkbender” himself, Mako.
Why do so many people hate Mako? How could anyone like Mako? I was curious, so I decided to look at little closer at his character.
This is more of a character trait than an argument. Mako's personality is cold and aloof. He's as mean as Bolin is nice, and that's done on purpose. Bolin and Mako are brothers, so, naturally, they are opposites. This is apparent from the first time they meet Korra. When Bolin meets Korra, he immediately helps her out, covering for her and sneaking her into the arena before he even knows her name. Ma…

Did the finale just suck, or was it just me?
Please tell me I’m not alone on this. That finale was majorly disappointing to me (and not just because Amon wasn’t who I thought he was).
A couple reasons:
I hope I’m not the only one who thinks Amon’s character has been permanently ruined. First of all, the backstory was lame. Looking back, it’s plain to see the creators have been hinting at this since the beginning of Korra’s flashback/hallucinations, which makes it even more disappointing , knowing the creators had been planning this . It just doesn’t feel right to me. All of the anger that Noatak had been harboring over the years doesn’t fit Amon’s cool and calm demeanor (up until the end that is.)
Not only that, but they didn’t even finish the…

Hello there, welcome to my first blog post.
I'm going to try to answer the one question we all want answered: Who is this guy Amon?
I'll start by listing everything we know about Amon.
He is a nimble and skilled fighter, able to hold his own against benders without the ability to bend. He is a powerful and convincing speaker (almost akin to Hitler in that regard). He is extremely clever, able to infiltrate the probending arena without arousing suspicion and able to find Tarrlok in the wilderness easily. He is a powerful leader, gaining the support of countless non-benders, a good percentage of Republic City, and even powerful businessmen such as Hiroshi Sato. Personality-wise, he is calm and unshakable.
Amon’s most prominent quality has been h…Read more >
