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.

There is a nation known as Zutaria...

Well, yes, Aang is twelve, but also a hundred and twelve, and also thousands of lifetimes old, both male and female.

Not spoilers, I hope, but after you've seen Season 2 there will be more characters to ship.

Oh, and don't miss School Time Shipping!

Heheh...it's like a whole extra dimension to a series, learning the fandom culture. And always fascinating.

I don't count the last 100 years for Aang since he was asleep. But true about remembering past lives, so, hmm. It's just, he *acts* twelve. :) So far.

Given how often the kids say, "Can we pleeeease watch one more episode?", we'll likely be well on our way into season 2 soon!
