Depressed after seeing Avatar? You’re not alone.

January 12, 2010

And I’m not just talking about that disillusioned feeling of how average a movie 15-years in development could be. An Avatar fans forum site was home to over 1000 posts about the subject “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible” So apparently the fact that the gorgeous landscapes of the forest-covered moon of a planet not called Endor don’t exist is enough to throw people into an depressed and suicidal stupor.

Welcome to the creepy/real side of psychological TF disorder. People believe they are Na’Vi trapped in a human body, or they want to be Na’Vi and live on Pandora. To wit, it’s not all that different from people who take the concept of furry to the n’th degree and believe they are a fox or dragon or chakat trapped in human form, so don’t be so quick to judge them.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Personally, I’m hoping for an all out war between the TwiTards and AvaTards. Blue skin versus white skin! Na’Vi versus vampires! Sparklers versus sparklers! Let’s get ready to rrruuuummmmbleeee!!!

    Hilarious and disturbing all at the same time.
