This was supposed to be a journal entry but it turned into an essay, so enjoy!
Okay, I have been on a hunt this afternoon for the interview where Bryke says that everything in the show has a meaning, a reason, a purpose. Someone once commented on something that I wrote about this interview and they even gave a great excerpt of it. If you still have that or know where I can find it, oh, I would be so grateful! Does anybody know what I'm talking about? Is it an interview in a Nick magazine? Cuz I've just read all the interviews I could find on the net, and I got nothing.
Anyway, besides that plea for help, I was reading the two most known interviews (the one during Spring Break 2007 and the Toon Zone at the 2008 NYCC), and I came to a few awesome revelations. Wanna get all Zutara excited with me? Okay!
First, let's play CONNECT THE DOTS:

A Zutarians Analysis
***Contains Spoilers, Random Acts of Spazzing, and Zutara Fangirl Opinions***
First of all, if you havent read MizSweets analysis, you should, cuz I agree with a lot of her stuff and this is only going to add to it and probably repeat some of it. So, yeah, check out her stuff! The link is in the description.
The first order of business is to define what CANON means and why Zutara IS in fact CANON, according to how present Avatards use it. I have looked up definitions of CANON and here is what I found:
> "Canon" is a term used by fans of anime and manga. Two characters that end up as a couple in the end of a series is considered canon.
> Default pairings, often used to describe pairings in fanfiction that are claimed to be obvious. In other words, a couple that is heavily promoted or suggested in the show.
> Another word for official.
Ok from these definitions, we can call Kataang CANON beca

A Zutarians Analysis On How Love Really Works
Kataang should happen in the show because if it doesnt it would send kids the wrong message about love, and that message is that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, and no matter how many obstacles you have to overcome to earn her affection, she will never love you in return.
Okay, has anyone else ever heard this kind of statement from a Kataanger before? I know I have. And Ive heard it so many times that it has finally made me think, and Ive come up with one simple thing.
That concept is twisted.
Basically, it should read like this:
Kataang SHOULD NOT happen in the show because it would send kids the wrong message about love, that message being that you can do all of these things for a girl and eventually she will love you cuz thats how love works.
Now Ill probably get flamed terribly for that

~A Serious Look at Aangs True Destiny~
Even now people are still questioning whether Aang will use the Avatar State (AS) or not. Though we have two DVD cover pictures that clearly portray Aang in the AS, the question of whether he will use it and even how he will use it still seems to come up. As a Zutarian, I find it quite clear. It has been spelled out for us rather easily. And heres where we find it:
Aang: (startled) What? Why would I let go of Katara? I...I..I love her.
Guru Pathik: (reasonably) Learn to let her go, or you cannot let the pure cosmic energy flow in from the universe.
Aang: (crossly) Why would I choose cosmic energy over Katara? How could it be a bad thing that I feel an attachment to her? Three chakras ago, that was a good thing.
Guru Pathik: (firmly) You must learn to let go.
***This is taken from the transcripts on AvatarSpirit.net.***
Interesting choice of words there. Even Aang realizes to some e

He was back in that blasted chair again.
There was a little piece of loose thread on the arm of the chair. He used to work at it, back when he'd come here regularly for his post-Afghanistan PTS and nightmares. Back when he didn't want to talk to the woman.
He didn't want to talk now, either.
His quivering fingers plucked at the string.
Ella sat across from him. For the first five minutes she'd smiled patiently at him. The next ten the smile faded but she still held silent, kind patience.
The thirty minutes after that she'd stopped trying to look patient. She looked at her watch for the umpteenth time wanly, holding back a sigh.
John hadn't wanted to come. It had been by Mrs. Hudson's demand and Ella's suggestion that he come in. Between the kidnapping and his unwitting run-in with an assassin, he'd been more frayed at the edges than normal. Any progress he'd managed to make in the past months had all but unraveled. He

Draco sighed and looked around the room. This was going to be fun. Sure, both Harry and himself were being chased by Voldemort, but now they had a room to themselves and they were safe. (Life can't get much better) he thought. Then he noticed there was only one bed. (I was wrong…) he mused. He heard Severus tell them something and then leave.

Molly Hooper was having a bad day.
It was her day off, or, at least, was supposed to be. And yet she was here. Truthfully, she hadn't left Bart's in nearly two days, save for a quick pop home for a wash before she received an urgent call to return. Then she came back to find her favorite sociopath bleeding in the mortuary, appearing dead. She'd managed to stop the bleeding without bandaging him, thankfully. Bandages would come later, out of sight.
He looked bloody awful, or at the least, both bloody and awful. Doubtless a closed-casket funeral would be in order. Thank God. She didn't know how they'd pull of an open casket. She waited, but no-one came to see the body. The report said that he had been dead on arrival. And he had probably seemed it. Molly knew a bit about anesthetics, and the particular one she'd given to the man was actually from one of his earlier cases. A man had faked his death by the drug, and luckily she still had a bit t

"Ahh, Johnny boy! Good to see you again. It's been a while."
Moriarty closed the door behind him to ensure the extra privacy for him and his hostage. "So, hows life with Sherlock? Exciting, I'm sure." He came behind John and ran his fingers through his hair. "He always did seem to have some sort of strange... fascination with you." His look became harsh, but quickly returned to its usual smirk. "Don't get me wrong, you are incredibly fascinating. Tons of fun. I just sometimes wonder why he keeps such a wonderfully exploitable weakness around." He pulled back John's head slightly. John looked up at him and made muffled groans through his gag.
"Oh yes, sorry about that gag. Just a bit of a formality. You know how boys can be. So excitable. Besides, I've had you before;" Moriarty proceeded to slowly take off the gag. As it dropped to the floor, John remained perfectly still and silent. "I know I don't need this with you. Always so quiet, Doctor. Were you trained to do that or just somethi

"Inspector Lestrade is at a crime scene," Donovan said as she shuffled through papers that clearly weren't her own. "But he did mention they found something." Donovan glanced at John. "Though I'm not sure if I should give you this information."
John let out a long sigh. "Donovan, Sherlock isn't the criminal, and we need to stop Moriarty."
"I know that," Donovan said, clearly trying to restrain herself, but as always she found that difficult when it came to Sherlock Holmes. "But you're talking about risking your life for him and he isn't worth it!"

Sherlock- BoxJohn blinked at the box in the middle of the floor. It was fresh, new. The label on the side was addressed to Speedy's café, so John knew it wasn't originally meant to be in the flat. Mrs. Hudson wouldn't randomly leave a box in the middle of the floor, and John definitely hadn't had anything to do with it, so that left Sherlock.Sherlock- Box3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
As far as things Sherlock brought back to the apartment, a cardboard box was mundane, at best. That was part of what worried John. He moved to examine the box, speculating as to what could be inside.
The first thing that he noted was that it was upside down. The bottom of the box, which was now the top, was still sealed with packing tape. Closer examination showed that the tape across the top of the box (now tucked underneath) had been peeled off, so the only opening was at the bottom. This also meant that it had been opened, which reduced the fear that Sherlock was stealing a café's mail.
With a huff, John plopped down in his chair, staring at the b

"Good morning to you too." A deep voice next to him muttered dryly.
John just about jumped out of his skin.
He looked up to see Sherlock leaning against the headboard, hands linked behind his head, smirking at John's bewildered expression.
"Sherlock? Whathow "
"You fell asleep last night. I knew you hadn't been getting much sleep lately, so I thought it was best to just let you stay here."
Last night? John was silent for a moment as he waited for his brain to process the information. Sherlock had a nightmare last night. I went into his room to wake him up. We sat up talking. I must have fallen asleep.

It was the tones with which they say it, the slight hesitations or intonation of their voices as they say your syllables. It brings with it their feelings towards you.
But now I am screaming your name with pure and total fear.

John was having another nightmare about his time in Afghanistan. Sherlock knew he'd be tossing and turning in bed, all the while muttering and sometimes shouting after his army colleagues, his friends, that he just couldn't save.
"It wasn't your fault John." Sherlock said very quietly under his breath. He hated to see his friend like this. John would wake up insanely early, stumble downstairs and try not to wake his flat-mate who, although John didn't know it, was already awake and would start writing his blog or read a mind-numbingly boring book in an effort to chase away his demons and find some peace, only to found by his flat-mate, at 6am, asleep in the most awkward positions on his reading chair.

He was standing in a room of some kind, a dressing room from the looks of it. Not only that, but he was holding a violin, to which he noticed he was playing. In this dream, he seemingly had no control over his body. The door opened and he turned to look. There was a woman in the doorway, her long red hair draping her shoulders in curly locks. "Karl...what are you doing here?" She said in here soft voice. Climber seemed confused as his body moved and hugged the woman delicately. "I just wanted to wish you a good show."
He hugged her closely. She gasped at the sudden pressure, but seemed to return the favor. "That...and I wanted to say my...goodbyes." "Goodbyes?

And Lestrade had never understood why Sherlock had suddenly decided to work with this army doctor. He seemed to bring no new knowledge to the table and merely played into Sherlock's vanity by regularly complimenting the - admittedly impressive - deductions the man made. Lestrade had suspected John Watson had been a tool to annoy the police.

He'd felt particularly purposeless lately.
It was the telly that set him off. Something he'd seen, that had been on. A dance documentary. He'd woken up after leaving the set on all night and it was on. It set off a memory and he'd immediately called Ella before he got the urge to throw his shoe though the screen. Then he'd have to pay damages.
Anyway, his therapist sat in her position opposite, and for once she was waiting for him to begin. He admired her ability to adapt to him. It was helping, he could feel it.

Being in the shop was an event led up to by pure chance and dumb luck, or more specifically, dumb bad luck. The motel's coffee machine had been out of order, and so had his stove (what could he expect at that price? This marked the last time he cheaped out on a room), leaving him without either of his two sources of caffene.
So, being a rational man, he'd gone out to get coffee. He'd never been in this little shop before, but he could deduce that the streamers and strings of pink and silver hearts strung low across the ceiling were a new addition.
