Happy Birthday Avatar: March 11th 2005-2017

Thanks for 12 years of bending, fan fiction, fanart, originality, cosplay, fan clubs, cons, meetups, and life long relationships. Here’s to many more years of this beautiful little community we like to call Avatar Fans. AVATAR FANS UNITE!

Hello!! First, happy new year!!! May 2017 bring lots of knitting and joy to you. Second, you mentioned in a post Tolkien inspired lace shawls. You were most likely joking when you said you could do a whole post about them, but could you? That sounds so cool!!

Hi Anon! Happy New Year to you, as well!!

As requested, here is your post (if anyone knows of any other Tolkien inspired lace shawls or other patterns, please add them when you reblog).

Ennyn Shawl ($6.00) by Abigail Phelps

Evenstar Shawl by Susan Pandorf ($8.00)

Lady of Rohan Shawl by Becky Herrick ($6.00)

An Unexpected Journey by Altarlace ($7.00)

Galadriel’s Mirror by Earthfaire ($8.00)

Arwen’s Shawl by Morben Designs (free)

This last one isn’t a shawl, but I couldn’t resist because it’s such a cool idea!

Mithril Vest by Susan Pandorf ($10.00)


So I now have these in my possession and am ready to enjoy them and also scan and transcribe them for blog purposes, like the generous geek I am. They’re both in pristine condition, to the point both have posters inside that are still stapled in. One of them is a close-up of Garak and I’m torn over whether I unstaple it because holy crap, a Garak poster from 1993, versus “ruining” the old magazine? Though it’s not worth much, was cheap on eBay.

Oh, and I should mention (d'oh!) that both of these issues cover Season 2, meaning they include complete recaps of episodes, plus production notes, interviews and things related to those specific seasons. I’m definitely going to share the synopses for “Profit and Loss” and “The Wire,” plus of course the big Andy Robinson spread. I know that last one has been posted many times online but it’s always a graphic and find those very difficult to read. I’m very good at transcription, so I’m happy to just type it up, then scan any photos in separately.


P.S. The Garak issue includes a collectible poster of Kira and Bareil, from one of those scenes where they’re being all romantic and he’s shirtless. It’s… well… not something I’d hang on my wall. As opposed to the Garak poster!
