I never do these things but hey why not, let’s give it a shot. But because I’m a big grinch, I won’t pass it on, bwahahahahaah
1. Music strongly influences my writing. Or rather, I use it to get into specific moods that will help me write certain types of stories. Every story has its own soundtrack. For Spreading Fires, it was mostly Dead Can Dance, Arcana and Tool. I created an itunes playlist specifically for writing the fic.
2. For some bizarre reason I feel connected to Daniel Day Lewis’ facial expressions. But only when he has a mustache.
3. I tend to fall in love with characters (mostly villains or psychos) who, sooner or later, die or disappear forever. Or with actors who play such characters. Notable examples include Thomas Kretschmann, who almost inevitably ends up being killed (in 90% of cases, shot), and Gary Oldman.
4. I’m obsessed with making posts look good together on my blog. That’s why I tend to use all black-and-white pictures, and why I don’t post much. Because if things start looking chaotic, it drives me crazy. If a picture’s too small or its resolution too poor, or if it has vivid colours (I prefer more desaturated colours), I don’t reblog it — even if I absolutely love it. Yes I know I need help.
5. One thing that first attracted me to Amon was the mystery. I think characters who wear a mask seem detached, superior, and yet there is this weakness to them. They are sheltering themselves from the world’s gaze. And I like it that way. I never want to find out who they really are. I like to see fragments of their humanity, but never the full picture. That is why I wish Amon would have never been unmasked.

I agree, it would have been awesome to see a Vaatu-possessed Amon. To see the internal conflict between his belief in the cause and his forced servitude towards the spirit of darkness. To have an actual connection to the spirits, instead of just being a bender. Or at the very least, it would have been nice if Unalaq would have been a non-bender. An anti-Avatar who rejects the power of bending. The opposite of the Avatar. In any case, Amon had so much potential, which was, unfortunately, ruined by the end of the season. As for Unalaq’s potential, it was never fully developed. I feel as though he could have been pretty deep too, but they didn’t really give him a chance to be. His motives were depicted as simplistic, even though, when you think about it, they were never fully explained. Was he truly under Vaatu’s spell? How strong was his belief in what he was doing? What happened to Amon’s character was worse than unexplored potential, though. I feel as though it was completely deconstructed. So when he blew up at the end, I didn’t really care, because to me, he’d died the moment Tarrlok said he was his brother.

Amon Anonymous Y_Y I’m so sad with the direction the show took…second season is over and not once was I even slightly interested in watching it…
ARGH YESSS I FEEL THIS PAIN OF WHICH YOU SPEAK HERE IS OUR AMON ANONYMOUS LOGO
I’m feeling so fucking nostalgic about Amon I just went through ALL of Hnery’s “Amon” tagged posts and now I just want to curl up in a corner and cry. Do you guys remember Ladimore’s sexy tiny-waisted Amon? Veit’s disfigured Amon? Niladhevan’s dark and violent Amon? ALL OF THE AMAZING AMONS FLOATING AROUND? The days where there was Amon fanart aplently in the Amon tag?
If anyone wants to talk about Amon (you know, like they do during an AA therapy session) or ask me a random question about my head canons, or just vent, go right ahead. I’ll be right over here, eating my heart out and crying bitter tears of longing and regret.
Edit: Upon Veit’s suggestion, this shall be named the Amon Anonymous therapy post.
