"Sorry, General, but if the entire Cornerian fleet can't fight off the forces of Andross, I fail to see how four mercenaries can help."
"Eh, better let Andross take over Lylat. He'll probably make us rich."
"Slippy, I have had enough of your incessant whining! Seriously, you sound like you're six years old--and you're eighteen!"
"No, Peppy, I do NOT want to do a barrel roll! Seriously, you'd better retire."
"'Gee, I've just saved a snarky pheasant's life, even though he doesn't deserve it!' See how annoying being sarcastic is, Falco?!"
"Wait, Wolf, why are we even fighting in the first place? Your team's much cooler anyway, I'd like to join up!"
"Thanks for saving me, Fox! You're the best pal a pheasant could have!"
"Here, take my meat. I don't want it any more anyway."

Hi. Most of you may know me as a lover of butts. Well, today, I’m going to show you another side of me, one that doesn’t have anything to do with butts.
I openly admit that I’ve only watched a few scenes of Avatar: the Last Airbender and haven’t watched The Legend of Korra at all. But I have watched all six live-action Star Wars films, and those also figure what I want to talk about today.
As a lot of you know, recently The Legend of Korra has gotten low reviews, and it’s easy to see why. TLOK has polarized the Avatar fanbase, the detractors of the show hating it for things such as shoddy plot and characterization (if I recall correctly; please correct me if I’m wrong).
This kind of thing seems to me like the situation with the Star Wars prequels a few years back, except those movies were largely panned by critics and Star Wars fans alike. I admit to have enjoyed them, however, so I believe I’m in the minority here (it’s been a while since I last watched them, though, so I might change my tune if I watched them again).
What TLOK and the Star Wars prequels have in common is that many disenchanted fans choose to ignore them completely, pretending that they never existed in the first place.
This is called “fanon discontinuity”, and it has its own page on the TV Tropes website.
Now, I don’t have any problem with those who do this. If they want to pretend things they don’t like about the things they love never happened, let them.
It’s just that, well, I don’t do that kind of thing. And here’s why.
See, Star Wars and the Avatar series were created by human beings, not divine entities.
And human beings are prone to making mistakes.
No rational person could claim that the original Star Wars trilogy is perfect.
Indeed, the films have been criticized for things such as stiff acting, stilted dialogue, and characters (such as the Ewoks) that seemed out of place.
However, the films, taken as a whole, were so entertaining and enthralling that such criticisms seemed trivial.
When the prequel trilogy was released, that all changed.
Those films were largely seen as poorly paced and plotted, and also made the flaws in George Lucas’s writing more obvious.
Which brings us to the Avatar cartoons. I haven’t watched ATLA, but I’m fairly certain that there are some faults, major and minor, that mar the work.
However, it seems that such flaws are largely ignored by those who love it.
Now, however, it seems that some fans of the original series, have rejected Korra because it didn’t have the great characterization of the original, along with other reasons.
The point I’m trying to make is, I don’t necessarily view these sorts of things as things to be ignored, and certainly not things to complain about, claiming that their respective franchises have been “RUINED FOREVER” (which also has its own TV Tropes page).
I know that no amount of ignoring can make those things go away (unless the creators retcon them later on). Rather, I see these as testaments to the frailty of creators of works of fiction, who always strive for perfection but fail.
Again, I have no qualms with those who choose to pretend that things like Korra and the Star Wars prequels never existed. It’s just that I don’t personally do that sort of thing, because if the creators haven’t retconned these kinds of things, then they must remain as a reminder that nobody is perfect, and that they have the opportunity to do better next time.
On another note: I also don’t religiously worship things I love, refusing to acknowledge any sort of flaw in it. If Lucas, DiMartino, and Konietzko were divine beings incapable of creating any flawed work, then that sort of thing would be justified. But they aren’t, so it isn’t.
