here’s also continuing interest in whomever Korra is dating. Diane Pangilinan @twinklelydy asked “do u have any plans for developing Korra’s love life?”
Konietzko: It seems to me that people are uninterested in that. They get completely angry when we have fun with the teen romance stuff. I don’t know. I’m going to leave that alone.
Konietzko: This is my new theory. Fans are more interested in imagining relationships between a myriad of pairings. But they’re profoundly disinterested in seeing any of those things manifest themselves on the show. So who knows, whatever. Mike and I as writers, we wrote it the way we found it to be entertaining, and that struck a chord with some, but maybe not with some others.
Seriously. When even freakin’ kaddvatwihard is saying that you’re entirely missing the point of the criticism…
A visual representation of Legend of Korra’s biggest problems.
I did it Mako, I saved the company!
To me, this was the saddest moment in this episode.
Asami was born without bending powers.
Her mother was killed by firebenders.
Her father decided to become an Equalist to avenge her mother, and she had to fight him and put him in jail.
She dated a Firebender, until he broke up with her by cheating on the Avatar.
She’s still friends with both that Firebender and the Avatar.She is around 17 years old like Korra, But she has no one in her life anymore, was thrusted into managing a company, got screwed over by her partner Varrick, and ended up in the middle of a war she never wanted to be a part of.
And through it all, she hasn’t shown a sign of turning dark.
She is single-handedly the most selfless character in the entire series.If Asami becomes a villain or tragic fallen hero in the next season, it would be completely justified, because she was -no, she is- treated like garbage.
Here’s a full body drawing of my design of Adult!Korra in my Childhood Companion!Korrlok comic :)
these jokes are still funny right
(more book 2 comics - 5/14)
LOL. Wasn’t expecting THAT.
Holy crap LOL
OUTSIDE THE LAW
I feel like this comic is an accurate summary of the crapfest that Korra has become
Because Asami and Korra are the cutest girlfriends and I just wanted this really bad okay.
Also because I was going to Asami art trade with many lovely people but suddenly there were so many I couldn’t keep up. So hopefully you guys forgive me and take this instead.
Fanart like this is so much better than the actual show. ;_;
I still haven’t watched any new LOK episodes and at the moment, based on what I have read/seen about it, I have no desire to.
I have been avoiding the new episodes so far because I am not sure I want to ruin my otherwise good week with more anger and disappointment. From the short clips I’ve seen so far, I have seen nothing to indicate the series is improving. It’s going to take a lot to get me excited about Korra again. =(
I really like slice of life stuff. It’s so comfy and friendly and the media equivalent of drinking a nice cup of hot cocoa with snowman-shaped marshmallows, and I look for nice slice of life fic for fandoms that aren’t actually all that slice of lifey. ATLA had some moments with everyone chilling, but LoK is definitely lacking in them, and I kind of want a sims sort of set-up where everyone’s living in the same house and going through their daily routine, and someone’s making coffee and Korra’s wandering around wearing a pajama shirt and little else.
I picture them in Asami’s big dead empty mansion, filling it up with voices again and working out their really shoddily crafted friendship. Like they start out there because why not, and Asami is probably lonely in that house, and it’s not like any of them have an actual real home anyway,so they stay with her and try to cheer her up and eventually just living together pushes boundaries and causes friction- normal, healthy friction, and they have rows that get mended and boundaries to set up.
Mako and Bolin adjust to the drowning in luxury environment slowly, maybe being overwhelmed by some of it, remembering sleeping on the streets and feeling guilty over being able to be somewhere this nice when some of their friends are still going hungry. Maybe Bolin hoards food, and Mako still calculates their earnings based on the living they used to make.
They’ll all be sitting at a table together and one of them or two of them will talk about a frankly horrifying childhood- Korra crying into her mattress, exhausted at age seven and sore from her training and missing her parents who allowed her to be shut up, Bolin admitting to eating out of the garbage sometimes and getting a fever from being bitten by rats, Mako owning up to some of the shadier aspects of looking after his brother.
Fluffier stuff, like Asami teaching all of them to drive, or all three benders incorporating each others styles into how they bend- Korra learning to be more patient and grounded from Bolin, Mako learning how to ‘classically’ firebend from Korra, all of them adding the flexibility of water/airbending into their own styles, and Asami beating their asses at nonbending hand-to-hand combat. And then they all chill at the pool afterwards.
At night, maybe they all sleep in the same room for safety and comfort. Something adorable and close and fluffy and full of all the friendship I truly wanted in this show, that’s what I really want in a fic.
ok hi this took me like four years
Not sure if Korrasami comic or Korra x muscles comic….
OH WELL (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
This is pretty funny and adorable.
Although, how come you draw Asami so much taller than Korra? They’re just about the same height, aren’t they?
Regardless, I found this amusing and as usual, I love the art, bud. =D
Asami’s definitely taller. She’s actually slightly taller than Bolin.
Sure! This is just my personal blog about Korra stuff, but if you link me I’ll check out your post. =)
