I can’t say I’m really happy with this, but can you imagine all the trouble they would get into if they were childhood friends?
P.S. Happy Bryke Appreciation Day!
korra and mako would obviously be the ringleaders. korra being the reckless type and mako always having to hold her back and telling her that now is not the time. asami would be the sweet little angel around her parents but then wreck shit up when not around them, and would never get in trouble because ”our daughter would never do that!” bolins the younger brother who desperately wants to get in with his older brothers group (mostly because of his giant crush on korra) so hes willing to do anything. used mostly as bait or a distraction while the others do the fun stuff
is this the wrong way to celebrate Mako Appreciation Day or
You wonderful person, this is the RIGHT way to celebrate
borra AU in which korra is on the fire ferrets and bolin is a metalbending cop
“You can’t knock me down!”
It’s been over a month since ‘The Legend of Korra’ ended its first season and during this time I’ve reflected on many aspects of the show. The stuff I liked and the stuff I didn’t like, but during all this reflection I keep going back to this line. “You can’t knock me down.” Now, this line isn’t from ‘Korra’ it’s from its predecessor ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender.’ But it clearly illustrates to me what is alternately the most disappointing and infuriating failing of the first season of ‘Korra’. And that’s the writing of the female characters.
When Katara said this line in the original show it was a moment of defiance and empowerment. It was tailored to Katara in that specific moment but in my mind it became one of the biggest mission statements for female characters in the show. In ‘Avatar’, the female characters had agency, they had development, and they had power that was manifested in many different ways. Some were love interests but being a love interest wasn’t ALL they were. They made mistakes. They fell down but the narrative allowed them to rise and be better than they ever were before. Even Azula, who ended the show broken, wasn’t that way because the show was being cruel or careless to her character. It was the natural ending of her arc that the show had been crafting for two seasons.
The key reason why ‘Avatar’ succeeded where ‘Korra’ failed is that there was a clear respect for the narratives of ladies in ‘Avatar’ that is just not there in ‘Korra.’
*prays to zeus that book 2 isn’t ruined by bad love hexagons and that extra writers will be there to help*
I wanted to attempt Borra week but I couldn’t draw a thing. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow. For now he’s a doodle of them laughing :/
Mako and Korra of the Legend of Korra are now a canon couple. As far as shipping goes, I’m highly immersed in it. More so in LoK than I was watching A:TLA. I guess because the creators chose to focus more on relationships and love this time around. Most ships can float my boat
(no pun intended), but there is plenty about Makorra that doesn’t set right with me.
In this manifesto, I will critically analyze Mako and Korra’s relationship from day one throughout the entire season and explain exactly why Makorra is not a healthy relationship for either characters. I have maintained a neutral stance towards all other ships.
Warning: There will be a lot of character criticism, plot criticism, and feels.
Put on your anti-shipping goggles. We’re going for a ride.
Really? Some people.
the third doodle for today…?
woops, Borra’d. Honestly, this is all I want. My babies to be happy. No shipping dramas and love triangles, just happiness and flying to the sunset.
also this is how I figure out if I ship anyone-draw them so cute that there will no be another alternative but ‘ship’.
