"It’s just a game," I chant to myself over and over anytime I have to make an important choice in a videogame
So does anyone need a new Toshiba Satellite laptop battery? Bought one for mine, and it ended up being dead beyond needing a new battery. But I still have the battery, brand new, literally only used it once to try reviving my computer. Any takers? It’s the model number PA3817U-1BRS
Anonymous said: In regard to your reblog about there being no white people in the avatar universe I must ask if you think that most of the characters are blended to make the audience see themselves in the characters? For example, aang looks very white but also clearly modeled off of Asian monks and katara and sokka are darker skinned but look white sometimes. Animation is about making people see themselves in the art so would you agree with this?
At what point do Sokka or Katara ever look white in the show? They were pretty much consistently brown/Inuit looking characters and I can’t ever recall seeing them portrayed as otherwise outside of the occasional scene with bright white light. Aang may look white to you, but he is very clearly modeled after monks and Asian designs as is Toph Beifong.
This is a show that was made specifically with the intention of using Asian and Inuit culture to create a fantasy world. In every form of media we are flooded with stories revolving around white characters, so it’s incredibly damaging when people say that there are characters in the Avatar world who are white when the creators of the show have gone out of their way to produce something that is so very clearly based on Asian and Inuit people. I’m not saying you can’t relate to a character, but relating to a character by whitewashing them so you can “see yourself” in the story is racist and it erases what little media presence minorities have on television.
That last statement about animation might be true if we were talking about a show that was about a talking trashcan or something, but this is an amazingly detailed animated show revolving around humans, so the viewer is presented with a specific character view that isn’t left to interpretation. Please don’t think there are any white characters in the Avatar world because that’s a completely inaccurate and harmful view to have.
I think it burns people to know that something so successful doesn’t have a single white person in it.
My tablet pen isn’t working right D:
At least I got to do that one last drawing with it.
So I actually did Korraweek’s 8/25 ‘Fierce’ prompt, but no internet at home means I can’t upload the real thing from my laptop. Oh well.
“You can do this, Korra.”
I have a feeling that Korra will be relentless when it comes to getting herself physically back to 100%. And of course Asami is right by her side.
