I have to say, it's really hard to write a hard-boiled cop who's been wrongfully imprisoned without using profanity. It's two grown women, a preverbal infant, and sometimes a guard or two, but it still just feels weird to have swearing in a fic for this show, so I've been avoiding it as hard as I can.

So, Legend of Korra.

I really want to make a parody of the original Dirty Harry poster with Lin. But I'm no good at digital art. What do.

Also, Asami is a badass Margaret Burton with electricity and kung fu instead of reality warping (and a father who was not in fact brainwashed). So not really much like Margaret at all. Or she's Margaret and Elenore's daughter. That works too.

Speaking of which, 'Also, Lin's dad is Azula. It's really complicated.' I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. lizbee, sorry if it's a silly question, but were you aware of this?

Everything is Korra and nothing hurts, except homework which I have a lot of because classes resume in about twenty-eight hours.

More thoughts forthcoming at some point.

(I LOVE LIN. AND TENZIN'S ENTIRE FAMILY.)

It would involve ANCIEN REGIME POLITICKING.

For a little while now I've been having this idea for an Avatar fic in which Hama and Kanna awaken Aang about a half-century before canon. It would be a taut political story (based on the idea that fifty fewer years of total war equals fifty more years of usable political infrastructure and two generations that haven't yet been decimated) featuring such characters as Toph's grandmother or great-aunt or somebody of that sort of capacity, Decrepit!Sozin and DesperatelyWaitingForHisFatherToDieAlready!Azulon, young adult Iroh and baby Ozai, a Bumi who's in his fifties or sixties and just getting started in the Order of the White Lotus, some previous generation of Kyoshi Warriors, maybe a prior Earth King, and so on and so forth.

So, does this idea sound interesting to anybody? I'd probably start writing it around early September, when I get back from my family's road trip and knock off an original short story idea that I have.

Avatar news from ComicCon

Found on one of the various geek websites that has reported on this (UGO.com, maybe?)

Mike and Bryan were there, and talked about Korra quite a bit!
  • As mentioned , the cabbage merchant will not appear, but "his legacy will be present in some form."
  • As an evolution of the first series, The Legend of Korra will have more sophistication to it, but still keep the humor, fun hybrid animals, and action.
  • It won't cover more mature subject material necessarily, just different mature subjects.  "It won't be another war, but a different sort of conflict."
  • On whether or not we'd see a love interest for Korra: "We love that stuff.  We're total cornballs, we love cheesy teen romance.  Rest assured, there's plenty or romance happening in the story, but it's the same balance of ingredients that we like."
  • Katara IS in fact the mother of Aang's offspring, who will be central to the show.  "We didn't mean for it to be a big super-secret, that they end up together."
  • On the persecution of Airbenders being compared to the X-Men registration act: "We'll see something like that, but in sort of a different structure."
  • Will it be a very different world from where we left off?  "Yes and no, the world has definitely changed, and evolved, and advanced, but we're very conscious of keeping the same feeling.  Not totally different, but it's definitely generations later."
  • "There will definitely only be one Avatar at a time, and it is Korra."
  • So will Aang have any kind of presence?  "Yes...in his way."
  • DiMartino and Konietzko will continue to work with Joaquim Dos Santos and Ryuki Hung, working to improve the design and animation.
  • The Legend of Korra will in fact be a mini-series, with Michael and Bryan directly writing each episode.
  • "As a mini-series, it's going to be really tight.  While we really love the filler episodes, those are some of our favorites, this thing is just lean and mean.  It's a really cool driving story."
So! Are you all as excited as I am?!
