I seriously haven't had this much trouble watching an episode since The Ember Island Players.  I just- I have this horrible reflexive embarrassment watching dumb shit happen.

I love the ideas of Legend of Korra.  I love the characters- just not how they're used in the narrative.  And I hate, hate, *haaaaate* the thought of being that one fan, the one who writes a huge alternaverse that's entertaining at first but you just have to wonder 'did you actually like *anything* about the original, or did you just see it as a fine skin to try and wrap your own clearly genius ideas in?'  Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, the ElfQuest Alternaverse, Embers...

And at the same time, it's fucking painful to watch what should be so awesome just flatly *fail* at it.

Anyone wanna help me?  Just brainstorm, maybe prompt some stuff?  A timeline divergence here, a character's hidden personality being different there, a larger exploration of some significant event that got skimmed over there...
