Zatara, Kataang?

Almost done with season 1 of Avatar: the Last Airbender, and though I don't know any spoilers from future seasons (LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY), I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that there are a lot of hardcore Zuko/Katara shippers out there. The enemy coupling isn't my usual style, but I see the attraction in this case, partly because Zuko is actually complex and might have an interesting arc by the end (hope so), and partly because Aang is *twelve*. And all these people are cartoons. So that makes the whole shipping thing feel weird to me too. But I'm sure these fics exist.

I don't know much about the fandom at all, but I love the series, and this is the one fic I've bookmarked. It's a gen Momo and Appa fic and is very sweet.

There is also a recfest over here, but I guess you'll have to be careful of spoilers.

Hope you love the rest of the series. It *is* weird shipping cartoon characters, but you'll get used to it :D

Aww, Momo and Appa! So sweet. The animals are all so darn cool--that's actually one of our favorite facets so far. Flying ones for Airbenders, aquatic ones for Water Tribe, etc., and usually serving real functions to the plot.

Once I'm through the series and know who everyone is, I may indeed rush out and read fics. :) I'm pretty sure when I was a kid I shipped cartoon characters, Saturday morning cartoon soap opera type things--silly ones like Jem & the Holograms, or GI Joe. But of course that shipping was rather tamer than I did later with other fandoms. Still, in some sense it isn't entirely a new feeling to me.
