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.

OH GOD I CANNOT WAIT TO LISTEN TO THIS.

UNFORTUNATELY I CANNOT TO-NIGHT.

THE SUMMARY ALONE IS AWESOME. OH MY FUCKING LORD I WISH I HAD THE SOFTWARE NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE. AND MAYBE HARDWARE?
*happy little squee of joy*

THIS MADE MY MORNING. I haven't even listened to it yet!

Just the thought of another episode to listen to sends my little fannish heart into a twitter.
Yay for Sokka!! He's always been awesome. Trufax.
The thing about Katara is that in a show filled with awesome characters, Katara is only a good character. While I like Katara, she is no where close to my five favorite characters, and I think a lot of people think like that.
Sokka is indeed an awesome character, and that’s pretty much all that can be said about that. Seriously. Awesome.
While I too don’t ask much from Avatar, because it is always awesome regardless, Sokka Zuko BFFing is one of the two things on my list that must happen. The other being that Sokka get at least one(more) real sword fight before the series ends.
“Sokka realizes that there’s more exp in defeating the fire lord than helping random strangers.” Best line ever.
Whoops! Thanks for the heads up.

Man. ALWAYS SHENANIGANS.

Hello there. Hope you don't mind random strangers commenting. xD

Anyways, this is the best Avatar podcast I've heard. I like how you guys aren't just like "wank wank wank" about the show and instead appreciate it's awesomeness. :D

I agree, Sokka was always awesome.

-schellibie
YAY! more sick fish more sick fish!!
You guys did a great job again. The quality seems to get better every time as well.

I loved how you looked for the interesting aspects of the Painted Lady. I liked the episode just fine when I watched it, but it's far from being my favorite. I like other Katara-centered episodes better.

And, yes, Sokka is awesome, and I think you covered so many aspects of his personality and his way of interacting with people. I was only surprised that you talked about the episode without mentioning Piandao at all. A cool master needs love. ^^

Aside from this, I would suggest that you put spoiler warnings in the announcements, not only for episodes 312 and 313, but also for the spoilery hints to the clips showed at NYCC.

I am very curious about the next episode.

In addition

Regarding Sokka's awesomeness, I agree that he was already awesome before. (I liked him just fine during season 1, but he won my heart for wanting to spend his vacancies "AT THE LIBRARY"!) In this episode, however, his awesomeness and courage were acknowledged by someone equally awesome and also by the gaang.
I am such a mean person omg! looool.

Seriously, though, I didn't think it was mean until I said it out loud. And then... yeah, it kind of sounded cruel.

I'M SORRY, TOPH. ILUUUUU. <3
I think the part that made me lol the most was if Suki would embrace Sokka's beard.xD Now I hope he wears it sometime in the near future!

But, yeah, I think any girl/guy would want to marry Sokka if they had the chance! I know I would! lol
For some reason the download link doesn't seem to be working, do you have any other place I can download this at? I really would like to hear it! Your first podcast was awesome and I definitely want to hear the second!
Have you retried it recently? Or tried the flash player? Because both seem to be working fine for me, so I'm not sure what the problem might be!
Sorry! Never mind that comment I got it working! Anyway awesome podcast! I really love your insight and all the humor and just the amazingness that you guys get to squee over the awesome that is Avatar!
Hey, I'm just posting an annoying comment to ask an annoying question:

How often can we be expecting updates? No rushing or anything, but just wondering if ya'll have a schedule worked out! :]

Anyways, I <3 the podcast, everything you say is trufax.
Well, we sort of TRY for every week, but it ends up being more bi-weekly than anything. XD

love the episode with Sokka

I loved what you guys were talking about with Sokka. Just wondering when the next episode will be up, I can't wait to listen to it ^__^

Re: love the episode with Sokka

You're in luck. THE NEXT EPISODE IS UP RIGHT NOW.

Re: love the episode with Sokka

thanks Rawels ^__^
I failed to comment on the sheer EPICNESS of this episode.

Seriously. You have me laying in bed sniggering like crazy at about 1:00 AM. And I don't fall asleep to your podcasts, EVER! :D
