52. I can break apart a person, place and/or thing and tell you why such a person, place, and/or thing is the way it is.
59. I heard about it from a friend, and asked myself why Tumblr is the way it is. The answer from that question, made me realize how incredible Tumblr is, and that I should be a part of it.
1. I think I used this one before, but w/e.
2. I want like 4-5 kids. Haven’t thought much on names, but these came to my head: Darian, Richard, Joy, Lily and Grace.

47. Long conversations late into the night, piercing, confident eyes that disarm me with glance, and bouts of spunky intelligent banter.
48. Gossiping in all its forms, a yes-person (they agree with everything), and any kind of bullying, be it physical or verbal abuse. It’s worse than a turn-off though, I get angry.
51. I believe I’m a Gemini?
This is post-Legend of Korra headcanon:
Mako walked into the threshold of young Lily’s room, she was barely 6, and her twinkling blue sparkled in the light of the gas lamp on the dresser.
"Daddy! Daddy! Please tell me a story, I can’t sleep without a story!" she pleaded with the adorable sapphire eyes of her mother.
"Lily honey, I want to tell you story but you need to sleep now." Mako wearily smiled.
"Daddy we didn’t finish from last night!" she reasoned, hoping this convince her tired father.
Mako sighed with a knowing sense of nostalgia. He could never win an argument with Korra, and Lily possessed the fiery unyielding passion of her mother.
"Okay princess." he consented and sat down on her bed putting an arm around her.
"We ended last night with Mommy saving the world from the big bad spirit right?" he leaned over to kiss her small head of dark brown hair.
Lily bobbed her head up and down smiling widely, “I’m ready Daddy!”
She clasped his hand tightly in hers and nestled herself into his side.
Mako felt the tears well up, and silently fought to hold them back. It had been four years since Korra had given her life to save them all. His precious Lily cooed with delight as he cleared his voice.
"And so continues, the Legend of Korra…
Now looking back at Book 2, was all the bitching worth it?
Does the struggle with the animation of Studio Pierrot, and the semi erratic plots of a few episodes mean that much now?
This is why I will never give up on this fantastic show. For those of you that did, I truly pity you.
Now that Book…
I think it’s super cute that you have opinions, but since you decided to come into my inbox with them, I feel the need to inform you that they’re stupid.
Let’s sit down and judge Avatar: The Last Airbender for a second— not the entire series, mind you, but just Books 1 and 2. Imagine if the series had ended at the Book 2 finale— with Zuko being the most hated character since Umbridge, Sokka still being the comic relief, Toph still running away from her issues, Azula still completely 1-dimensional, and Aang still afraid of facing his duties/possibly dead. If it had ended there, it would’ve been a pretty disappointing show, right?
"But it’s unfair to judge something when it hasn’t been completed! You have to see ATLA in its entirely to fully appreciate it!!!" you dramatically scream to the heavens.
Get your heads out of your asses and stop writing Korra off as “disappointing” when it’s only halfway done.
And. stop. comparing. a. finished. product. with. one. that’s. still. in. development.
Give ‘em a left! A left!!
Satoru from the rift is Toph’s babydaddy
but he’s also Asami’s grandfather
he and Toph had a daughter and, many years later, he helped a promising young industrialist start a business.
This young man eventually married said daughter and had Asami
like 8-ish…O_Ofirebendthesunlook at this
Brilliant!! Just brilliant, I’m weighing in on the “Lin’s younger sister theory”.
If Asami’s mom DIDN’T die, wouldn’t that make her a prime candidate for the Book 3 female villain?
This would be a perfect opportunity to have Asami and Lin’s backstory integrated to the plot with an amazing emotional arc.
I guess we’ll find out soon! Nick Upfront is days away…
Thanks for showing me this obenibo
People keep leaving Legend of Korra fandom lately (and that’s totally cool I swear), but I feel the need to tell you guys that won’t ever happen with this blog. No matter how much this fandom frustrates me
and makes me want to light myself on fire, I’ll always be here. In sickness and in health, for better or for worse, till death do us part… this fandom is stuck with me.
This is the entire point of the series. ATLA is full of powerful and important ideas, but this is the single overarching theme that dominates the story and is its most important reason for being.
And that, guys… that is why the Lion Turtle works.
Because Aang was shaping his own destiny. The world, his friends, his own past lives were telling him one thing. They were telling him that it was his destiny to kill the Fire Lord. But Aang said no. It wasn’t his destiny to become a murderer and an assassin, to end a long and bloody war with more bloodshed, and he knew it. So he refused. He forged his own path. He searched for an answer. He went looking for another way. He asked everyone he could think to ask, and was given nothing.
And then, in the final hour… he asked the Lion Turtle.
He didn’t have to. He had already accepted that this time, he wasn’t going to be able to shape his own destiny, and he was just going to have to take what the world had handed him. But he wasn’t going to leave any single option unexplored, and so he asked the Lion Turtle, too.
He asked for an answer.
And his persistence was rewarded. He was given an answer. Because he searched for it and struggled for it, he was given the power to reshape his destiny.
That is the entire fucking point of the story.
THANK YOU FOR SAYING THIS SO BEAUTIFULLY
It may be hard to believe since Book 3 hasn’t even aired yet (SOON!), but we just had the final Korra animatic meeting this afternoon for the Book 4 series finale episode. It’s been bittersweet saying goodbye to so many amazing crew members as their teams have rolled off the production these last few weeks. Pictured here, left to right: Melchior Zwyer (director), Lauren Montgomery (supervising producer), Joaquim Dos Santos (co-executive producer), Ki-Hyun Ryu (supervising producer), me, Owen Sullivan (assistant director), and Mike. In hindsight, I wish we had lined up this shot so it looked like the Mac desktop tiger’s ears were sprouting from Mike’s head.
P.S. Though we had the animatic meeting, that still means there’s a TON of work left to do on Book 4. That is still part of the pre-production process.
I should start writing my Will right now because I’m telling you this right now I will not survive the Legend of Korra series finale
You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.
