Maddie, 27 Like the title says. I pretty much run a multi-fandom blog plus whatever else I like Had an actual theme for about two months back in 2012. Absolute chaos since then.

    people in the atla fandom really forget about aang's anger, huh. they reduce his personality to careless joy, and they reduce his choices to pure pacifism and naiveté, when his behavior is not so two dimensional. aang has a bit of anger near his core, a product of grief, and his choices and behavior are all made despite this anger. he chooses to liberate himself from it. he chooses to be joyful, he chooses to be a pacifist. he chooses kindness and he does so even when he knows that the world will not approve, and it takes incredible internal strength to do so.

    Okay okay okay ATLA of course but there is NOT enough attention paid to Ty Lee becoming an acrobat and leaving her family and trying so hard to establish herself as an independent person as opposed to "part of a matching set" and then finally at the end joining the Kyoshi warriors and wearing their uniform and BLENDING IN WITH THE GROUP because she came to the realization that it wasn't about *not looking like an individual* that felt miserable, but *NOT BEING TREATED LIKE ONE* but now she's a KYOSHI WARRIOR and even though they all look the same they ALL HAVE PERSONAL AGENCY and RESPECT and CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER and she's finally confident enough that her new family won't try to crush her personality that she feels secure in conforming in other ways, like tddyvrgdfgfdfffk CHARACTER ARC

    The Shakespeare fandom is in as much control as Shakespeare would have wanted.
