Episode Three: In Which We Boil Some Rocks



DOWNLOAD

SUBSCRIBE


This episode of Sick Fish contains spoilers up to episodes 3x14-3x15: The Boiling Rock. Listener beware!


This Week

Basics

Fishies: Ali, Shizuma, and Rawles.

Fanalysis: The Boiling Rock!

Listener Love: Drabble contest results and DRAMATIC READINGS. Plus, listener mail!

Summary

  • Rawles is a parenthetical narration prodigy, Shizuma tries (and fails) her best to fill Azula's shoes, and Ali is the most dramatical of all.


  • Balloon Buddies and their Gorgeous Girlfriends. Epic, inarticulate flailing ensues.


  • We attempt to have serious, meaningful discussion about the events of The Boiling Rock, but mostly can only express our love of everything and everyone contained within. Especially a new character, for whom our love is NOT A JOKE, PEOPLE.


  • We manage to answer our very first fanmail question seriously, entertaining different endgame possibilities for Mai/Zuko and the future of our fandom.


  • Next week: The Beach, The Avatar and the Fire Lord, and Zuko.

This Week

Basics

Fishies: Ali, Planguy, Shizuma, and Rawles.
Fanalysis: The Painted Lady and Sokka's Master
Getting Into Character: Sokka
Listener Love: Drabble contest final update! (Details in the episode Notes.)

Summary

  • Planguy&Shizuma vs. Ali&Rawles re: The Painted Lady. Two teams enter. ONLY ONE LEAVES.

  • As it turns out...Sokka/Toph = A++++. Also, Shizuma is mean.

  • We would all marry Sokka.

  • Katara wishes she was Batman and Aang thinks it's hot. Meanwhile, everyone else goes: OMG THREAT LEVEL BLUE.

  • Did we mention that we would all marry Sokka? For real, for real.

  • Next week: The Beach, The Avatar and the Fire Lord, Zuko, dramatic readings, and New York Comicon!


Notes

Recs

Ali's Pick: Psyche's Contemplation by etrangere.

Shizuma's Pick: Sokka Gets No Respect. Sokka-related multimedia content and other fun stuff.

Planguy's Pick: Avatar Scrubs by swan2swan.

Rawles' Pick: praiseofshadows' Avatar fic. Specifically, Sincerity, Life in Ba Sing Se, and I'm Your Country.


Drabble Contest

The official END of the drabble contest is TOMORROW, April 25th, but in the interest of full disclosure, as long as we get fics in prior to recording the next episode, we'll totes consider them. So, last chances, people!

And a reminder of the specifications of the contest:

What You Should Do: Write a short fic of a Mai/Zuko-ish bent that is no fewer than 100 and no more than 300 words and send it to sickfishpodcast@gmail.com.

What You Should Not Do: Write a short fic that contains porn and send it to sickfishpodcast@gmail.com. Well, actually...you SHOULD do that all you like. We just can't use it for this contest! Sry.

What We Will Do: Select Fishies will perform a dramatic reading of the winning fic (and possibly excerpts from honorable mentions if there are enough entries) on an upcoming episode of Sick Fish. So basically you get to listen to us embarass ourselves in front of the internet. WITH YOUR WORDS. We will also shower it in praise and note your awesomeness all over the comm FOR ALL TIME.

Episode One: Waking Up and Getting Down



DOWNLOAD
SUBSCRIBE


WARNING: This episode of Sick Fish contains passing mention of events in episodes 3x12 and 3x13 of Avatar. Id est, episodes that HAVE YET TO AIR ON AMERICAN TELEVISION. There be spoilers if you are part of the 5% of the internet that has not acquired the Canadian airings of these episodes.

This Week

Basics

Fishies: Ali, Kimba, Shizuma, and Rawles.
Fanalysis: The Awakening and The Headband
Getting Into Character: Aang!
Listener Love: A drabble contest. Just. For. You. (Details in the episode Notes.)

Summary

  • We determine that The Awakening is amazingly dense and made up of equal parts really anvilicious things and really subtle things!

  • The Headband is lolarious, Zuko is kinda crazy, and Sokka/Beard is the truest of all OTPs.

  • We really, really, really love Aang. And we sort of wonder what's up with you if you don't!

  • Rawles likes fic about childhood games, Shizuma likes fanvids to music from Across the Universe, Kimba likes epic, lengthy fic in which Azula is scary, and Ali likes fic that inexplicably makes her care about Haru.

  • We all think that the Avatarverse is awesome enough that there will someday be a great fanwork renaissance and we also have issues with Harry Potter.

  • Next week: Sokka, Sokka's Master, The Painted Lady, more recs, and probably more shenanigans!


Notes

Recs

Rawles' Pick: unbolt the dark (three games of hide and seek) by fahye.

Shizuma's Pick: Brilliantly Green's LiveVideo Channel specifically Strawberry Fields Forever and The Dream Within.

Kimba's Pick: Dichotomy by The Rose's Charm/fanfare.

Ali's Pick: A Long Long Time Ago by ladylisse.

Episode Zero: In Which We Talk About How We Will Later Talk About Things

In this, our pre-podcast podcast, Shizuma, Ali, and I look forward to making fools of ourselves at a later date, I should probably speak up a little, Ali picks on me, and Shizuma envisions alternative energy sources. We are like a radio show from the 1920s in a way and may very well “delight” you with a jingle next week.

Yes. We get a lot done in 10 minutes!
