this is gonna be a mess and I’m on mobile so -
Yeah honestly I mean, maybe not necessarily “foreshadowing” now that I think about it. But their contrasting personalities really did showcase a sort of “Mako and Korra” dynamic. And, hell, Mako fits the entire “I tried to fight it, but she really grew on me” part in the shortest description possible.
In regards to them getting back together, I mean, yeah, I’ve had huge waves of doubt. And I rather not base a ship I love just because it was the “original choice.”
I do think they can work things out though. Korra’s drawn to Mako, in love with the boy regardless of her frustrations and his obvious lack of well…skills in the romantic department (but they both suck so-) and I really don’t see her getting over him quickly, if even by the end of the series. Mako, well, we’ve observed that at the end of the day, even of he stumbles and messes up with other people and situations, he wounds up right back to Korra. It’s just gonna have to be derived from “I need to work on my communication etiquette, protective nature, and overall issues for me to ensure that I can, and will, keep my promise of love to this girl.”
I don’t think these two speak empty words. I think they speak their mind, and sometimes through pressure situations, speak their heart.
Book 3’s honestly going to be majorly tough on them, and I’m honestly thinking book 2 will be a cake walk in comparison to the crap they’ll be enduring this season. But you know what? They’ve gotten through things, one way or another.
They need to figure out what they need to do and work on. They need to understand one another on common grounds. There’s probably gonna be a huge wake-up call that occurs that really shakes the foundation of what they thought was their previous relationship and fore them to figure out for themselves what needs to be done if they want ‘this’ to work (which I think, even though they know it doesn’t right now, they do in fact want to work as a couple).
So I mean, I think we can bite our nails over how much this season is gonna hurt us in regards to makorra, but think of it as them really working their way up to happy endings, where I believe they can reach endgame status by the end of book 4.
I’m in love with this
...when you let her go.
Today, April 14, marks the two anniversary of our new Avatar’s appearance. Not only has Korra made us yearn for the past of our childhood, but has made cry over villain’s tragic story, made us laugh at the cabbages, and allowed us to come together as a family and forage new friendships that know no country boundaries. HERE’S TO TWO MORE SEASONS OF EPICNESS.
Found this old doodle while digging through my old files yesterday! I’ve always really loved the idea of them just being really freaking awesome best friends, tbh.
