"nigel brought me into this fandom" You wanna explain this? :P

Ha. Well in between ATLA and LOK airing I wasn’t really like, involved in the fandom at all. Truthfully, I wasn’t super involved during ATLA, aside from the occasional forum posts on Avatar Spirit. I began using tumblr casually around late 2012/early 2013, actually as a way to look at GoT S3 promo material/to kill time during this one job I had that didn’t require much work. Also it was like right when I was done school finally (I had gone straight from undergrad to grad and finished up Sept 2012).

Anyway, the Nigel meme hadn’t totally died out at that point, and I thought it was hilarious. Especially because my sister was legitimately freaked out by it. I actually made the lock screen to my phone this just to scare her. I guess I was searching the Nigel tag when I came across this:


And that’s when I was like “huh. There’s like a new Avatar or something?” So I binge-watched B1 afterwards.

Without Nigel, I’m not sure I would have thought to look for this show.
