However, it is adorable that the discussion ended with kittens ~
RE: ATLA, I could see that it isn't about good and evil. It actually struck me very early on that each character was complex and human. The best example (as far as I've seen) was Jet. He was both the "bad guy" and the "hero" of the episode. In fact, I think the choices he made were very similar to ones that guerilla soldiers have to deal with in real wars.
About status, I had taken a few days off to make jewellery at my mom's place, but I'm back on track working on ATLA. Like Fairy Tale, if it takes a long time, it's due to the large number of items O_o
