Thank you. Really. This is now my head cannon, no matter what Bryke says.
I actually started a watching a little late in the series, and me and my little brother would run around and pretend to be benders. I still watch reruns.

D: That's so sad! Sweet, but sad! I love it so much. :)
I don't really remember where I was for the first episode I watched, but I remember where I was for the finale of book 1. I was in the back bedroom/study of my Granny and PawPaw's house, spinning in the old dining room chair that we used as a computer chair. My Grandparent's havn't lived in that house for what seems like years now.

I was sitting on my counter watching wided-eyed on our tiny tv. I was freaking out and thinking,"Oh my gosh, this is the best show EVER! So, from then on I waited desperately for the next episodes. In our inflatable pool, I pretended I was a water bender. I was convinced that I was Katara. XD. My cousin was also a avatar freak and told me that she could make me look like Aang. That, my friends is why My mom had to cut off the rest of my bangs. Now , even to this day, my hair is sorta lopsided in the front. Ah, memories.

Very nice story. When I first saw the show I was in my grandmother's living room eating jello with my big brother and my big sisters. They saw the first episode and hated it but I instantly loved it. However, I was only 11 at the time and my older siblings were assholes so I never got to see the majority of the series. Years later, I was 16 and was looking for something to watch on Netflix with my 3 younger siblings and came across the whole series. I was really late in seeing the t.v. show that I loved so much but I also got to share it with my younger siblings. That's my Avatar memory! :D

Sniffle... -cue picture of meme with really teary face-
That was awesome... Why doesn't this have more reviews? It's too good NOT to be reviewed...
I really don't know what else to say. It's just...I'm pretty much speechless. Okay, I guess I'm not since my review is getting to be a bit long. But anyway, I suppose I should tell you about when I first watched Avatar. It's actually a bit fuzzy, to be honest, but hey I'll try.
I think I was around 7 or 8, sitting with my dad on the couch, just flipping through channels. Yeah, I actually wasn't really that interested in it, until I saw it, obviously. Yeah, a short story, sorry... But that's it. :P
By the way, I love your little story, it's really funny. I wonder what I was eating back then? Probably chips or M&Ms, I have a tendency to do that. (:

I first watched Avatar when my friend sent me a link to watch all three seasons online, I had missed the whole actual fandom stuff during the show but I got to participate in it afterwards and I remember staying up late watching it on my mother's laptop. And I remember watching the show in the beginning and thinking it was okay but by the end of book two I just couldn't turn away, I think it was Toph and watching Zuko develop that I loved the most.
And can I just say your ending tore out my heart with the bit of "I love you, Aang..." and then there was silence. OMG! My heart stopped for a minute I swear to God. It was beautifully ended. Thank you.

How did you eat a penny!
Nice story very good
| purpleexplodingbananas 5/1/12 . chapter 1
Aw, so sweet! Perfect last words for Aang.
I remember when ATLA first came out, I was fairly young, and my mom wouldn't let my sister and me watch it because of the rating or something. But we watched it in secret anyway. I vaguely remember that one of the episodes we watched was "Bitter Work". We were on vacation and we were staying in this cottage, and we pretended that Aang was teaching us how to airbend. I also pretended that I was Zuko's long-lost sister, before we found out that he actually had a sister. :)

I think he was young when he died, everyone keeps saying he was old :P. Not old, just sick. 155 in spirit instead of 55!
Nevertheless, this was as promised- touching :).
When I first saw Avatar... gosh, I was hooked from the very first episode. I was wondering, "Uh oh, what is Nick doing now? Butchering anime?". But the art was beautiful, and it was funny! And then it was also serious, sad, adventurous, romantic... everything that goes into the best stories!
I was 15. I don't remember exactly where I was, but my brother watched it at the same time and also loved it- he is 5 years older than 1. Haha, thank you for the flashbacks to my childhood _.

Oh … that's beautiful. Aang's last words to Katara were the same as his first words to her.
I didn't discover ATLA until after the series ended. In 2008, my sister and I baby-sat a toddler boy. He and his older brother were fans of the show, and he wanted to watch some episodes on DVD. I saw the first three episodes of Book 3: Fire. I thought it was one of those weird anime shows that have trading cards - I associated it with Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh (I still don't really know what those are about, though I might be interested in learning). But I actually enjoyed watching it, though I could tell I had missed a lot.
About a year later, I thought to look up the show on Wikipedia. There I found a tossed salad of spoilers: Yue's death, Toph's home life, and Zuko helping Katara find her mother's killer. Then I tried looking up episodes on iTunes and watching clips; I can remember seeing the flashback featuring Zuko, Katara, a tree, and a necklace, and that scene alone had a ripple effect on my creative writing (I liked dark romance). I watched the first two episodes on YouTube; then, finally, I did a TV search and was able to set up a series recording of the repeats. It became my sisters' and my shared pastime, to watch the show together. The only problem was that we saw most of them out of order, and so we didn't always get to see the story unfold.
That's why I'm now glad that there is a new show: I can enjoy and experience watching the storyline and characters develop, and actually wait and anticipate future episodes. Also, I kind of agree with nvrkn0w: I've enjoyed being the same age as different characters. The kids who were preteens for the first show are in their late teens now. But the writers have also included younger characters, like 10-year-old Jinora.
I'm sorry this is so long … I guess I've been holding that in for a while. :) Anyway, good job on this story. It's a fitting tribute to the original show. Keep writing!
