Our Penguin Classics desk. Makes working from home even better (it’s already pretty good: radio, slippers, tea, rat baby cuddles).
I covered a free glass topped desk from my very generous boss at work with over half a box of Penguin covers postcards, a Christmas gift from my girl.

Without going into an elaborate discussion, I’d just like to point out that Korra has, what, 12 episodes out at the moment? Whereas FMA has two series, and a manga. Of course the story is more elaborate, and the characters were able to be analyzed more in-depth.
I absolutely adore FMA. But, to be honest, Mustang started out pompous. Edward started out resentful and cocky. They developed over time, through the experiences that they faced.
Korra was originally picked up to only be a mini-series. It was not set in stone that they would be continuing along with the series, so they had to create a full and fulfilling story in only 12 episodes. This is something that the fandom always overlooks when they judge the characters.
There’s three more books coming, guys. All I can suggest to anyone, about any series, is that they wait until the series is complete before judging it for its entirety. Or, for that matter, comparing it to another show.
This is like comparing Harry Potter to Percy Jackson. The stories are so different. They are separate, and they are there own world. You can’t judge something that has 12 episodes, to something that’s been around for years, and has a huge, developed story line.
Korra is still worse than Puella Magi Madoka Magica which was ALSO only twelve episodes so your argument is…very tenuous at best here, not to mention Roy did not “develop” into a less pompous character, we as the audience learned that his arrogance was a facade for his true motives…
he stayed arrogant. he just had OTHER characteristics and traits that were exposed to us.
Edward never STOPPED being cocky he just matured.
And again 12 episodes is plenty of time to be good writing. If it was written to BE a mini-series then it should actually read and BE LIKE a WELL WRITTEN and MULTI-FACETED miniseries!
Time constraints are not an excuse for failure.
I would also like to point out that…
Paranoia Agent knocked ‘em dead in 12 episodes.
FLCL told a great story, with amazing visuals in 6 episodes.
and Kids on the Slope told a story about friendship, love, and maturity in about 12 episodes too.
So yeah no, LOK really has no excuse for being as lousy as it is in the storytelling department. Seriously. Time constraints have nothing to do with it.
These kind of houses make me so sad. They’re usually remodeled on the inside to be multiple apartments. I wish they’d just leave them as they are, they’re history, you know?
“They say it grows so cold up here in winter that a man’s laughter freezes in his throat and chokes him to death,” Ned said evenly. “Perhaps that is why the Starks have so little humor.”
