I started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender back in December, and promised myself I could finish it after I finished That Damn Paper.

That Damn Paper is finished, and so last week I watched the second two seasons of Avatar within the space of about four days. (Look, eating and sleeping I was willing to eschew, but I had to go to work sometimes. Luckily some of my colleagues are even bigger dorks than I am. ♥)

Anyway I finally finished watching and it is PRETTY MUCH THE BEST THING EVER. Below the cut are some of my favorite lines and flaily real-time reactions to individual episodes.

KIND OF SPOILERY. AND FULL OF KEYSMASH. )

CONCLUSION: MIND-BLOWINGLY AWESOME

Spring fever, I has it bad. I've been here a year and a half--the longest I've stayed in any place since college.

And you know what? It’s noiiiiiisy, and there are drunken college studentssss, and the fire alarm keeps going off for no reason, and yesterday the pilot light went out on the stove but of course we didn’t know that was why the entire apartment smelled like gas and called the 24-hour emergency line who told us to call the fire department who showed up and were nice about it but clearly thought we were morons, and then they called the gas company, who sent a dude over who was nice and said just call the gas company first next time, ‘k?

On plus side, my poetry class has started up. It was an eight-hour marathon wherein we ended up discussing a lot of musical movie clips. The Court Jester, I have to say, looks kind of awesomely like a cross between the Errol Flynn Robin Hood and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’m going to make [livejournal.com profile] cadragongirl watch the whole thing with me.

Unfortunately, we also watched and re-watched bits of The Wizard of Oz, and I now have Ding! Dong! The witch is dead! Which old witch? The wicked witch! Ding, dong, the wicked witch is deaddddd! stuck in my head morally, ethically, spiritually, and ecumenically. THANKS A LOT.

Later in the day, I wrote a very bad poem about the epic doomed love between a whale and a glow-worm. I don’t even know.

We didn't get to it in class, but we were also supposed to watch Topsy Turvy, a movie about Gilbert and Sullivan creating The Mikado. Kevin McKidd is in it, and we had an imaginary conversation that went something like this:

ME: It's Lucius Vorenus! Hi, Lucius Vorenus!
KMK: Who? I am a Scottish actor, and my corset is fabulous.
ME: Yes... yes it is. But Lucius Vorenus will also be fabulous!
KMK: Will there be corsets?
ME: Well...no. But there'll be armor!
KMK: Close enough.

It suddenly occurred to me that The Mikado would be greatly enlivened (not that it needs it) by ninjas. Especially if the three little maids from school were the ninjas. From ninja school. Come on, wouldn’t that be AWESOME?

This is why I should not be in charge of things.

I should just call these people fake cousins and be done with it, academic-appropriate language be damned.

In other news, Ryuusei no Kizuna, ep. 8? OH MY HEART.

ALSO STOP TRYING TO BE IN THIS PAPER, YOU GUYS. I DON'T CARE IF YOU ARE PSEUDOSIBLINGS, THERE'S NO WAY I CAN CITE AN INCOMPLETE DRAMA SERIES THAT'S NOT EVEN LICENSED IN THIS COUNTRY. CUT THAT OUT RIGHT NOW.

And by "cut that out right now" I mean never stop. NEVER. OH MY HEART.

Little Women keeps trying to take over this paper. Jo and Laurie are important to my argument, but they're not The Point. BACK OFF, YOU GUYS.

I MEAN IT.
