Random essay to try and gather semi-coherent thoughts about Azula's mental state, since she's the only one who is the most unreliable narrator ever and I should explain myself.

Azula and craaaaaaazy. Spoilers for canon up to “The Boiling Rock” and speculation on the finale )

And for anyone whose eyes glazed over or just ignored that but wants music: "Mind Bender", an instrumental track I listen to when Azula is touching people's trauma inappropriately.
sharpasfire: (* Prepare for a shock. I'm the Rocketeer)
Ignoring spoilers of Iron Man = Azula, for anyone who hasn't seen the glorious crossover OTP Azula/Doom and sequel

With added logical reasoning to its superiority:

Jaime ... rewindow to the best pairing ever
Harley ........
Harley what madness is this
Paco hahaha I just read the first one. so weird.
Impulse Madness? This. Is. DOOM!
Harley .......................
Harley I.
Harley For this to make sense, I'd have to believe Azula has a functioning vagina.
Paco "your gym teacher?" "yeah." "that's a challenge."
Harley And not the portal to Hell I know is down there.
Paco it's supposed to make sense?
Impulse Hey, that's why it works Harley. Because we all know Doom's primary motivations besides hating Richards was probing the portal to Hell. It's how his face got messed up in the first place
Harley oh my god i hate you so much

Comment here with a relationship between your characters and mine and I will write up a detailed summary of how things are between you. This can also serve as a basic essay meme as well, if you have any BURNING!!1! questions no, I will not get tired of fire metaphorical language...

I play Impulse, Mytho, Azula, Giles and Chiaki.
sharpasfire: (* All is order naught amiss)
Now, since this is a little more private, I'd like to speak with you. Preferably without pulling teeth.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In November I put money in [livejournal.com profile] head_overheels's expired parking meter (14 points). Last Wednesday I set [livejournal.com profile] capthlock_rage's puppy on fire (-66 points). Last week I ruled Iran as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). Last Tuesday on a flight to Vancouver, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). Last month I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-800 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!

Sincerely,
sharpasfire

I. It's so true.

Okay so I am weak willed and watched the Eclipse when it was leaked online, instead of actually going to sleep:

This is going to be thankfully incoherent in spoiling anyone if you click on it )

Character: Azula
Series: Avatar : The Last Airbender
Character Age: 14

Canon: In the world of Avatar there are four nations divided up into the elements of Wind, Water, Earth and Fire. Some inhabitants of each nation are able to control their element by bending (think of it as planeteering without rings, extra kung fu stylings, and no annoying Heart dweeb breaking up the fight scenes with his moralizing). The only one who can use all elements is the Avatar, destined to bring balance to the world. This is complicated when the old Avatar vanished for a hundred years and the new one is just a kid with only a ragtag group of friends fighting beside him.

Azula is most definitely not on the Avatar's side. In fact, the only side you can be sure she's on is her own. Princess of the Fire Nation, Azula is a firebending prodigy able to create lightning and has the armies of the Fire Lord at her beck and call since Daddy loves her best. She has no qualms about attacking cute animals, children, or her own brother as long as it means winning. Playing dirty is just a strategic perk. At the same time Azula shows a not-really-softer side when she is depending on her minions—excuse me, "childhood friends"—Mai and Ty Lee, to assist her. Even if it means threatening and/or manipulating them into doing whatever she wants. Really, Azula is just a hardcore bitch, a lying liar who lies, and kind of a sadist. Did I mention these are her endearing qualities?

With cast permission, she is being apped from the beginning of season three.



Father must be running out of generals if he thinks routing the Northern Water Tribes is a task I should handle personally. Of course there's been a shortage since I've incapacitated the last few who served me, but it stands as a matter of competency. If they weren't competent enough to dodge when I was idly training then they shouldn't have had the positions in the first place. Especially not one perched at the edge of a steep bow...

Men, one of their leaders has been eluding our armada for months. This swamp is his only confirmed location, a rendezvous point for supplies given the obvious name of "Seafood." However, he only shows up twice a year; once in the winter season and once in time for a summer celebration called..."Christmas in Jewel-Eye." Since they're spaced far apart this may be the only chance we have before he retreats back to his stronghold at the North Pole and gathers reinforcements.

Being in an uncharted territory puts us at a disadvantage, but they look as if they don't even suspect a Fire Nation invasion. Honestly, this will be easier than taking Ba Sing Se. All of their residences are made out of wood and people seem to actively avoid the lake. Water Tribes are so wishy-washy in their superstitions. But begging for mercy, or marcy, whatever their hideous backwoods accents call it, won't save them once we separate them from the source of their best defense. It's pathetic, really. These people should be grateful if we burn this settlement to the ground.

Once we infiltrate the population we'll exploit the factions already present in their society. I've heard this North Pole leader is a master of information gathering, but even if he has a list and checks it twice we'll manage to turn some of the discontents away with proper incentive. Naughty or nice, it won't matter if we indiscriminately take hostages until they betray his whereabouts. And they'll have to give into us eventually. Bribing every boy and girl with toys can't replace the perfected method of intimidation tactics. From there it's simply turning the people against him and setting up a puppet regime. I think I might start with one of his lieutenants, Rudolph. If they don't let him play in any of their dear rain games, then his frustration could easily be swayed into disloyalty.

The other issue is capturing the rebel leader. He travels exclusively at night, when waterbendering power is at its peak. It's said he knows when you are sleeping or awake, so our ambush must be better than good, it must be perfect. And this is not for goodness' sake, but your own, because if you fail me I will end you all. Now, where was I? Oh yes. His one weakness is his method of travel, entering by the fireplace instead of the usual underground passageways. Brazen, but without the element of surprise his method is done for. It seems almost too easy to attach lightning rods to the chimneys and simply wait until he gets close before striking. Then we can let gravity and his fat paunch do the rest of the work for us.

Yes, if everything goes according to plan I do believe Christmas will come early to the Fire Nation. Caged and bound in chains.

Voting went here ...100% wow people really do love the badtouch.
