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.

Drabble 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.

Special Note: Because we had some ISSUES getting this episode out in a timely fashion, the deadline for this contest is NOT April 11th as stated in the podcast, but will be significantly later. The updated deadline will be announced in episode two.

Sweet Zombie Jesus! You guys totally made today some kind of awesome for me. I snagged the download of the podcast last night so that I could listen to it at my super-boring cubicle job and possibly have a chance of staying awake. Not only did it keep me awake, I had to stifle myself from celebrating with a victory dance that someone else is as fascinated with the Fire Nation colonies as I am!

Geez, why am I not already friends with all of you? I have been bummed out since getting into the Avatar fandom because so many people get their jollies by hating on canon (pairings, plot, dialogue, whatever). So, all of you having such enthusiasm for the show itself was like a big pile of validation for me.

Seriously. It was like having four people say, "Yes! I totally agree with you about everything!" for the better part of an hour. =D

I've dissolved into flailing now because of how happy this has made me. *flails* Look what you've done to me!

Oh, also? Mai to Zuko: "Seriously, you have got to stop talking about the wounds inside of you" nearly made me snort my drink out my nose. IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

I don't know...WHY AREN'T YOU?

Avatar fandom is uh...yeah.

Been there, done that, WOULD NEVER EVER EVER DO IT AGAIN. (Though it kinda sorta wasn't quite THIS bad before season three?)

The mandate of this podcast is basically to ignore all crazy fandom crap and talk about the show. And why we love it. Because really that's the whole point.
I don't know...WHY AREN'T YOU?

This issue has been taken care of. =D

The Avatar fandom has continually impressed me with its ability to take an amazing show and beat the shit out of it until there's nothing left but a sad little pile that sort of looks like Fushigi Yugi.

The mandate of this podcast is basically to ignore all crazy fandom crap and talk about the show.

I heartily approve of and encourage this idea in every way possible. *thumbs up*
So glad you liked it! CANON LOVE FTW.

And, YES, you should totes be friends with us. <3
Well, then I'll take this opportunity to let you know that I'm totally stalking you now. =D

*waves I <3 CANON flags*
HOKAY! 8D
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey

Having been in that place of fannish isolation on more than one occasion myself, I am VERY glad to have been of service <3
