Memeing Catrina

by on April 24, 2013

So, I recently discovered a new meme; to be precise, it’s more of an older meme that’s new to me. I’ve been rewatching Avatar: the Last Airbender, the cartoon, not the absolutely horrible M. Night Shyamalan movie. It’s one of my favorite series: clever humor, catchy leitmotifs, and some really, really impressive visuals. (The Ocean Spirit  Koizilla Monster in the finale of season one gives me chills, every time). In the opening narration, Katara, one of the main characters) relates how, long ago, the four nations that represent each of the four elements (Water, Earth, Fire, and Air) lived together in harmony…”but then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked”.  Apparently, several people on the Internet realized that adding that phrase to other opening lines of books automatically makes them that much more epic. For example, let’s take s the opening line of (brace yourselves) Twilight, combined with the Fire Nation Meme.

“I’d never given much thought to how I would die ….but then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

Impressive. It almost makes me want to read the book now. Almost.

So then I thought, what about my own novel, Catrina in Space? How would Catrina work with the Fire Nation Meme? Let’s find out, shall we?

“There are a lot of fun vacation spots in the universe; the bug-pits of Aylorta Five are not one of them…but then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

I like it. Ah, but that’s from the prologue, one could argue that the real story doesn’t start till Chapter One, right? Okay, then….

“It was a bleary, cold day in Shmirmingard Castle….but then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

Perfect. And of course, there’s my next planned novel, the one with Captain Happily Married and a prominent Catrina cameo…

“This is not Catrina’s story….but then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

I love this meme. 😀
