I’m really excited to post my first 5 Fandom Friday! This is a fun prompt started by The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick as a way to get geek bloggers talking and sharing. I like lists, and I like answering questions. Like, I really really like them.
This week’s topic is OTPs. I’m guessing it’s because Valentine’s Day is coming up, but hoooo boy. This is definitely a wild one to open up with. In no particular order – !
Just….leave me here to die.
Zuko and Katara
I was not onboard any ship when Avatar – The Last Airbender aired, and I think that’s because it seemed so obvious that the hero Aang was destined to get the girl from the very first episode. I just knew it was endgame from that first gaze! And thank goodness, because from what I have heard, the shipping wars were brutal. (Remember, we had to wait basically a year in between seasons. That’s a long time for fans to speculate every second of footage for clues of where the story was going).
Nah, it wasn’t until a few years ago when I had seen too many gorgeous fanart, read too many “what if?” fanfics when I saw the light. I loved Zutara and now I felt the pain of knowing it would never happen. Zutara shippers had seen the potential of these two, the parallels and “could have beens”, for years and it exploded all on me at once. This pairing torments me constantly, but I’m happy to be on board.
