Watching Avatar on Dis+ and I think what really made me connect to Jake's character so much is how being in his Navi body becomes more real than his daily life. How he finds a new purpose and something more beyond what he's known all his life.
Is the story built on the foundations of others? Yes. Is it reminiscent of the whole white savior line of storytelling? Yes. Does it have some over-acted stereotypes? Yes.
But it is enough of an escape, with such detail into the planet and the animals and the people, that makes up for it.
Am I showing how cliché my interests might be? Yes. But I am entertained and that's enough for me in my short life on this earth. But the idea that the world is all connected and can hear the people, and that the good people defeat the bad, is never a bad story to tell.
I've mentioned before that the Eywa app provides your phone with the Na'vi keyboard which is great, but what i didnt mention is that its also a English/Na'vi dictionary. It has a lot of entries and definitions and their grammatical information (like if its a transitive verb, etc). It also used IPA markings to give an exact idea of how to pronounce the word.
Its a great starting app for getting your fingers comfortable with Na'vi phonetics on a mobile device (for Apple iPhone and iPad users only right now, unfortunately lol). However, there seems to be a few features that dont seem to function right now:
The audio button for listening to word pronunciation is unresponsive:
The search bar is cropped considerably by the keyboard:
Sometimes the function doesnt seem to output relevant results:
(left) I searched "oe", which means i/me and got words with the letters 'o-e' together rather than the word as the first results (right) I searched "taron", which means hunter, and, similarly, got a words with the letters 't-a-r-o-n' together, which is apparent since a different word, "sätaron", is the first result.
This is not to breate the creators because this is a great resource thats still being curated. The search bar functions for most other words (I searched "ikran, fmi, kaltxì", and "kop" and they came up first after I spelled the whole or most of the word), and while the audio aspect of the definitions is convenient, its not necessary since there are IPA symbols to guide speech (plus i can imagine how much time and effort it takes to record and update audio for each entry). I still absolutely recomment this app for the keyboard and dictionary function for all Avatar fans and lì'fya leNa'vi learners like me (the app is free and you can purchase it on the App Store if you have an iPhone)! But I'm curious if other fans who've downloaded the app are having similar problems with it. 👀❔🌀
For additional context, I have an iPhone 8 iOS 15.5. The App Store indicates the last update by the Eywa app team was ~6 months ago and is currently on version is 1.5.0. The developer is Chuhan Qin. <- dont know if this is relevant info for the tech savvy or those experienced with app development but here you go!
HOW YOUR NA'VI FUCKS YOU
⟶ cw. drabble, explicit, smut, pwp, size-kink, size play, exophilia, marking, biting, alien-fucking, squirting, fingering, oral (m+f), cervix fucking + more
a/n. hoya, this truly came out of horniness for the blue aliens i desire, i wanna write full fics at some point but i hope these satisfy my fellow alien-fuckers.
the na'vi, is huge. he towers you, double the height of a normal human male. his size is reflective elsewhere too. his shaft is large, too long and too thick–he doesn’t care, he believes that it will fit. he does everything to make sure it fits, he makes sure the entire thing fits even if he goes inch, by inch, by inch–torturing himself, resisting his animalistic urge to completely pound you into the wet mulch.
the na'vi, marks you. he clings onto you when his entire length is inside of you. he holds you tightly, his large blue hands leaving handprints all over you, mostly your hips, upper arm, under your thighs…and your neck, oh your throat–constantly covered in a large handprint, he gifts you necklaces large enough to cover them when around the tribe but hell, he doesn’t let you wear it when you’re alone.
the na'vi, bites. his fangs, nips, chews at your soft skin. he utters words like, “human, your skin is as soft as whale blubber.”. hard to understand until you were given blubber to try. he loves when you’re on your knees, chest dug into ground with your back arched. ass bare for him, he nips them before completely devouring your cunt.
the na'vi, loves the way you taste. he can't stop, he makes you cum too many times. your juices taste like nectar to him, the rarest kind. he would awaken you with a taste for himself and even put you to bed with his head between your legs, his tongue deep inside penetrating you, curling his tongue along all the ridges and cavities he can find.
the na'vi, is needy. he’s always wanting you. he wants to explore you, how different you are to his kind. he plays with you anytime he gets, fingers deep inside feeling for anything new–he loves the sounds it makes, the wet squelches and the way when he moves too much liquids squirt out and you whimper in into your fists trying to make no noise.
the na'vi, always plays with you outdoors. he enjoys fucking you under the moonlight the most, with the glow of the scrubs and trees around. he likes the way the colours bounce off your bare skin, hue completely different to his own.
the na'vi, stares, he stares at the way his cock stretches you–his cock the size of your arm somehow fits. humans must’ve been made for this. the lips curl, fat plump lips–hug his cock, dragging and sucking him back in when he would thrust, he loved doing it slowly, seeing the way your cunt moves, leaving trails of your white cum all over his blue cock.
the na'vi, loves your mouth. the way it chokes on his cock, taking it deep inside your throat. he loves the colours of your tongue, the way it mixes with his–the way it’s so hot and warm when he feels it with his tongue.
the na'vi, palms your tits. his kind don’t have large tits like yours. they jiggle when he fucks you from any angle and he always wants his hands or mouth on them.
the na'vi, melts from the tunes of your voice. your moans, groans, whimpers and cries–he hears them in his sleep. the way your lips fall apart, you’re unable to resist making those little noises for him.
the na'vi, allows you to mount him. it’s his favourite position. watching the way you struggle to sit on his cock properly, constantly adjusting and begging him for help. his large hands holding onto your much smaller hips–helping guide you as your body shudders and shakes from the pleasure. he loves the way your small hands rest on his chest as you ass bounces on his cock, whimpering. he sees the way his cock looks inside of you, he can see it when you sit and stare it him, telling him, “i’ve taken all of you, look.” you rest his palms on your stomach, the ridge of his head inside can be felt from above your belly button. it makes him harder to know you can take so much for such a small being.

Another thing I love about Avatar 2009 is that yes, the Na'vi are cat-like, but their design was subtle and believable.
And it is also a commentary on corporate greed and capitalism and so on.
Anyway, I love this film.
