Late night messy things
One of the bestest characters ever - I’m tempted to rewatch ATLA now~
I’m trying hard (not) and failing badly in my attempt not to rewatch everything. His character arc was just…uergh. He was so self-centered, so acerbic, and just so angry at everything, but Uncle Iroh was forever patient.
And every single time Zuko was given a choice and chose wrong, it was so very disappointing. So, so, disappointing. But so understandable. And then season 3 ran us flat with a bullet train, and what a redemption arc that was.
I’d just like to take a moment and say that they couldn’t have chosen a better VA than Dante Basco for Zuko IMO. When he speaks softly, it’s gentle. When he yells, it’s raw. It’s sort of mumbly awkward in normal speech, and honestly D: I can’t imagine Zuko’s voice without his minor lisp. If anyone ever remade ATLA, I’d probably irrationally reject his new VA.
tl;dr: I really like Zuko. Really, really. Really. really. I mean, I really like all the ATLA characters. But just Zuko.
"How can you possibly justify a duel with a child?!"
"It was to teach you respect!"
"It was cruel! And it was wrong."
"Then you’ve learned nothing."
"No! I’ve learned everything! And I’ve had to learn it on my own. Growing up, we were taught that the Fire Nation was the greatest civilization in history, and somehow the war was our way of sharing our greatness with the rest of the world. What an amazing lie that was."
I’m doing the thing today. I’m organizing all my parashi notes. Or I’m drawing masamunes. One or the other. Both are good.
D: Thank you D:! HAHA. WHAT COMPUTER DO I USE. One that doesn’t break down at my mere touch. Me and electronics aren’t very compatible. It’s a Windows something. It’s so old that I don’t even remember Windows what.
Instructions: Do not stare directly into the picture. It may burn your corneas.
That moment when you realize you end up never drawing fanart of a character because you always get sidetracked off to pixiv for a couple hours looking for references.
There is a ghost comment haunting my dA. I can’t find it. It just sits there. forever. Causing my obsessive-compulsive tendencies to scream silently.
