TLOK + Sunshine + Liebster Award



The third season of The Legend Of Korra titled Change has just come to an end and it was amazing in the most unexpected ways possible. The finale started out with the main bad guy, Zaheer giving Korra the option of surrendering herself to save the Airbenders he has captured- and for a seemingly noble guy (he talks about stuff like giving people true freedom and he acts like he thinks he's right and is a good guy and all) he doublecrosses Korra- capturing her and keeping the Airbenders.

^super awesome xD^

The fight scenes were amazing and everything was brilliant and I loved all of it. In the second part, the Red Lotus (an organization created to get rid of the Avatar) poisons Korra, forcing her into the Avatar state so they could kill her and thus end the Avatar cycle.

Korra's Avatar State was so brutal and violent and it was the complete anti-thesis of the last time the Avatar went berserk- when Aang faced off against Ozai. Aang's State was totally defensive while Ozai tried bringing him down. Here, Korra is the one who is bent after Zaheer while he flies around like Superman.

^violent crazy Korra omg I love her^

One of the reasons why I really love this show is because of the strong female characters. There's Lin Beifong and her sister, Su. Then there's Asami who doesn't bend but she is totally awesome too.


And the last scene just literally killed me- Jinora being declared an airbending master aside.


OMG LOOK AT HER. I just want to hug her to pieces and cry and omg I haven't felt this way about any character except that velveteen bunny rabbit in the story I read when I was eight years old (even though the rabbit had the happiest ending in that same story ever) and maybe Itachi (and heck, he died- Korra's not dead but this hurts much more ;n;)

This season was also much more violent as compared to the last two seasons and I think ALL of the TLOK fans have realized WHY Nickelodeon stopped airing it. It's just too graphic for children.

This lady gets suffocated.
This lady combusts her own head.
This lady gets electrocuted.
This guy brings down an entire cave in an effort to suicide.


[If you don't understand what I'm talking about, it's okay. You can start watching the Legend of Korra- the first three seasons are complete and available online]

The Sunshine Award

I got nominated by F @ The Fence Of Stars for the Sunshine Award where you have to tell people five facts about yourself, answer five questions by your nominator and give five questions of your own. Here we go >.>

Five Facts about Me

1. I love reading- reading anything! I'll read books, articles and blogs. I love telling people how much I liked their writing, or what I think could improve it.

2. I mentioned a velveteen rabbit I cried for when I was eight. It was the first story in this big story collection book and it was about a toy rabbit who got abandoned by his owner and how the poor rabbit waited and waited and how it rained and how he got soggy and I think this was too much for my eight year old self. I remember bawling for this rabbit every time I read the story (which my mother used to make me read out loud so I could improve my English. The reading sessions ended with both of us delicately skipping this first story).

3. I am a neat freak and my notes will be the most beautiful thing you will ever hold in your hand.

4. I'm starting to get a little worried about my MCAT since there's just a week left but I've been preparing for this for almost two or three months now so I'm a little scared of all the hidden mental stress my mind may be carrying. The last thing I need is my brain melting down before the test.

5. My friends have started university (some of them) and I am jealous because they have such beautiful campuses and dorms and omg I don't think I could find anything comparable to those in medical universities here.

F's Questions and My Answers

What is your favorite mythical creature? DRAGONS! xD


If you had to change accents, which would you choose? Either British or Australian :p

What was the last good book you read? I just finished reading 1984 by George Orwell. It was definitely good, in a frightening sort of way.

What is your favorite modern slang word/phrase? Hmm. This is a tricky question because it seems modern slang is something we use every day without noticing how much we use it. I don't think I'd be able to pinpoint any such phrases from my own speech D:

What is a little known fact you just found out? You cant touch your nose with your tongue like Toothless can.
^Omg did you actually try it xD^

My Questions For You

1. What is your favorite part of your favorite season?
2. Describe one event that happened to you this summer which you will probably remember for the rest of your life xD
3. The worst book ever written- in your opinion?
4. Natural tourist spots (eg beaches) vs man made tourist spots (eg amusement parks)- where would you rather go?
5. If you could invent something out of a science fiction novel or movie, what would you make?

My nominees


Liebster Award

I got nominated for this by Whimsical Youngster @ The Starry-Eyed Dreamer. Thank you for nominating me :)

Q) What is the most important lesson you have learnt?
Well, my parents (actually, my father mostly) are usually stressing about how grades are not necessary proof of your intelligence and grasp of your studies. The main thing is to understand what you're doing first- before getting ready for a test. You could memorize everything and ace the test or you could sit down and understand everything and ace life :)

Q) What are you most scared of?
A) Cockroaches. Definitely cockroaches. Slimy little bugs. It doesn't help that I recently read a manga called Terraformars which is about humanity conquering Mars by introducing a mold and cockroaches there. The cockroaches were meant to absorb the heat of the sun and thus raise Mars' temperature while the mold was there to nourish the cockroaches. Anyway, so the manga started with this space expedition off to see how Mars was doing and to clean off the little pests. So they landed and they were like "Omg this is just like Earth now!" and they looked for the cockroaches except the cockroaches were man-sized and distinctly humanoid (evolved cockroaches) and so imagine that tiny little bug being mansized. Not only is it inhumanely fast but it's also indestructible and the cockroaches (now called Terraformers) literally pick off the human characters. The manga is pretty graphic and the cockroaches- ew. They have traumatized me.

Q) Do you believe in love at first sight?
A) There are lots of things you will love at first site but you probably won't get them anytime soon.
LOL KASHAF THIS IS FOR YOU xD

Q) If you had a time machine, what era would you travel to?
A) If I had a Time And Relative Dimension in Space (aka, a time machine) the first thing I'd do is probably sing the Doctor Who theme whenever I can. (WOOOO EEEEE OOOOOOO DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN WOOOO EEEE) And after that I'm going to high five my TARDIS
And after THAT I will try to go join the Sherlock universe xD and wow Sherlock will my wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff xD
But in all sincerity, I think I'd take my time machine and go 1400 ish years into the past :)

Q) What is your favorite show?
A) Well, I'm not sure about that. I'd probably say Doctor Who (again) and Sherlock (again).

Q) If you could use one cosmetic product for the rest of your life, which would you choose and why?
A) I don't apply cosmetics on my face soooo.

Q) What fictional character do you relate to the most?
A) Probably Korra. She's a very realistic and relatable character. (My spellcheck tell me relatable is not a word o.o)

Q) What is your guilty pleasure?
A) Browsing on tumblr or playing games or typing up this blogpost (which has spanned at least four days) when I should actually be studying >.>

Q) What are you looking forward to?
A) I am looking forward to Eid and my MCAT result (even though I haven't given the test yet) and an acceptance letter from RMC and I might go to Karachi so looking forward to that as well.

Q) If you were stranded on an island, what one person and three items would you bring?
A) I think I'd bring Cinder, from the Lunar Chronicles (cause her author reckons Cinder's the best when it comes to deserted islands) and as for the three items, my time machine TARDIS from the earlier question would be more than enough xD

Q) Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
A) Depends on how they blew their first one.

Your favorite social media website and why?
Do you think good and evil is most definitely good and evil?
What do you usually do when you're faced with a difficult decision?

  2. I heard a bit about Korra and it sounds like an amazing show. And it's really nice to have a girl superhero for once XD. I used to watch Aang and I adore Aang and Katara's relationship, by the way XD. I'm a bit sad that Aang is over though.

    I'd like to watch the show some time, but I currently don't know which channel is used... so.. -_-.

    Cool post, by the way!

    1. It is totally amazing :) It used to air on Nickelodeon but they took it off (some people thought it was because the main lead was a girl so the show wasn't getting any views) but after this finale, everyone knows why they've stopped airing it. You could watch it on any streaming website :) I usuallu download my episodes.
