I love Dante Basco. I've only seen him in three things - Hook, in which I fell madly in love, Avatar: the Last Airbender, and But I'm A Cheerleader!, a nice wee film about kids at de-gaying camp. Also, he's written about the whitewashing
in The Last Airbender.
Basically, all I want to do right now is chant RUFIO! RUFIO! and watch him angstily set fire to things while rescuing gay teenagers. No one can convince me that the ~real~ Dante Basco doesn't do these things.
Also, I'm writing!
I actually suck quite badly at writing. And plotting. But I'm doing it anyway, because I like it, and the more I come up with Things That Almost Resemble Plot the more excited I get. And I think stories are important. I want to write a story that says that sometimes people can really believe that they are your friends when they're not. I want to write a story where the mentor isn't omnipotent and unavailable and kind of useless. I want a story where some people are important to you just because, but others really aren't. (Is it obvious I've just broken off a pretty toxic friendship? Oh well.)
Also? I want a story with teenage girls saving the world.
So I guess it's time to put my head down.
