Content Notes: This is an illustration for unjapanologist gorgeous LNYE fic treat People in the mirror are closer than they appear, done by the author herself. It's a scene from a chapter not yet published, but not spoilery at all in the context of the fic.
I love that Zuko's the one to take initiative and the surprised expression on Jee's face.
Just recently. I loved it--
It's time to fangirl.
I thought it'd be fun
To discuss in haiku form
All of Avatar.
Say you just love Toph,
Or ship Katara/Suki.
Ask who Pakku is.
Best moments of all?
Does fall see nations at peace?
Let's talk Zuko's hair.
Come squee, chat, digress.

Fear not the haiku.
Sokka said, "This is easy,"
Circa season two.
(Mods, if this breaks rules,
Please delete it. Otherwise,
What rhymes with okka?)
The Wall Street Journal Recently got an Interview with The Avatar Creators.
The Wall Street Journal: How did you come up with the idea for the spinoff?
Bryan Konietzko: When Mike and I first created “Avatar: The Last Airbender” we always knew it would have an ending to it, that particular story. But as the show really took off, and found an audience all over the world, we knew that despite our intentions of ending that story there would probably be a time when Nickelodeon would come calling and want some more episodes….When that time came we had this idea for jumping ahead and telling a story about the next Avatar, this girl Korra.
(I should note that spoilers for the entire A:TLA series would be abound.)

Nickelodeon has announced a new series from the creators of cartoon epic “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”
The new show from Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko has the working title of “The Legend of Korra” and will premiere on Nickelodeon in 2011.
A live action theatrical movie based on the cartoon series called “The Last Airbender” was released earlier this summer to pans from critics and better-than-expected box office. The movie was directed by M. Night Shyamalan (”The Sixth Sense”), who has expressed interest in doing a sequel. Paramount, the studio behind the film, is watching the movie’s international grosses before making firm plans about any follow-ups.
The world of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” is one in which there are four nations–Air, Water, Earth and Fire–each with “benders” capable of controlling the elements. In the first series, a young airbender named Aang is revealed to be the Avatar, someone capable of manipulating all four elements, and prophesied to help save the world. “Avatar: The Last Airbender” debuted on Nickelodeon in 2005 and aired for three seasons.
Nickelodeon said in a release that “The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra.”
Korra’s quest eventually leads her to Republic City–the epicenter of the world of “Avatar.” A metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology, the city is inhabited by people from all nations. Korra finds that Republic City suffers from rampant crime and is also dealing with an anti-bender revolt. Korra is tutored by Aang’s son, Tenzin, is the ways of airbending.
