Textposts. Gifs. Fandoms. Vines. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Superwholocks attacked. Only the XKit Guy, master of all four memes, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new XKit Guy, a patch program named New XKit. And although his textpost editing skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone. But I believe New XKit can save the world.

let’s talk about how amazing Avatar: The Last Airbender is for a second
  • Fantasy world not based on typical medieval Europe
  • Was a children’s show that openly discussed war, death and genocide
  • Had several handicapped characters, one of whom was the show’s most powerful person
  • Every single character was a person of color, drawn to represent Asian and Inuit peoples
  • Had a character story arc centered around both emotional and physical parental abuse, whose arc was about learning that they didn’t need the parent who abused them
  • Absolutely BEAUTIFUL ART STYLE AND DIRECTION
  • Three dimensional writing that rivals even most adult dramas
  • Characters dealt with sexism in society
  • Showed citizens on both sides of the war, including showing how the people in the enemy nation were merely influenced by propaganda and an oppressive regime
  • Had romances that developed overtime and actually talked about the issues of forming a relationship instead of just “and now they’re in love.”
  • Characters died. On a children’s show. Characters who you fucking knew! Who had story arcs and were their friends and were kids like them!
  • When those characters died, they left an impact. It wasn’t ignored after a few episodes, the feelings they had for these characters stayed through the entire show
  • Had environmental messages that weren’t cheesy, and they made you take the destruction of the environment seriously
  • SUPERB world building, fleshing out many cultures and histories that always felt real
  • Had a magic system that never felt like magic. It always felt natural and like a solid part of this world with rules that couldn’t be broken
  • The cute animal sidekicks weren’t just there to sell toys. They were characters who had so much emotion to them and were vital parts of the show’s dynamic. Also, the animals never talked yet somehow still portrayed an insane emotional level that some Disney films only dream of
  • Spawned a sequel series that dealt not only with sexism, but with sexuality, religion, and the benefits and dangers from the rapid progression of technology

The point is, Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the greatest shows of all time and the proof is right there

“Hello, Zuko here. I’m gonna guess you probably already know me. Sort of. Uhh, so the thing is, I have a lot of firebending experience and I’m considered to be pretty good at it. Well you’ve seen me, you know, when I was attacking you? Ah, yeah, guess I should apologise for that. But anyway, I’m good now. I mean I thought I was good before but now I realise I was bad… ugh, anyway, I think it’s time I joined your group and taught the Avatar firebending.”
