Ruling is hard. This was maybe my answer to Tolkien, whom, as much as I admire him, I do quibble with. Lord of the Rings had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it’s not that simple. Tolkien can say that Aragorn became king and reigned for a hundred years, and he was wise and good. But Tolkien doesn’t ask the question: What was Aragorn’s tax policy? Did he maintain a standing army? What did he do in times of flood and famine? And what about all these orcs? By the end of the war, Sauron is gone but all of the orcs aren’t gone – they’re in the mountains. Did Aragorn pursue a policy of systematic genocide and kill them? Even the little baby orcs, in their little orc cradles?

Character: Korra
Appears in: The Legend of Korra.
Commonly Interpreted As: Straight (or sometimes as a lesbian)

But Really: (Contains spoilers) In the first two seasons of the show Korra shows an attraction to and dates Mako, a man. They break up in the second season. Through the third season Korra becomes closer to her friend Asami and in the fourth season, while healing far away from her friends, only ever replies to Asami’s letters, not Mako or Bolin’s.

At the end of the fourth season and the end of the series Korra asks Asami to go on a vacation with her, just the two of them, they hold hands and walk into the Spirit World together, as they actually enter the portal they face other.

And this is the end of the series, them going away, just the two of them, holding hands and staring at each other. If it wasn’t on Nick I am absolutely certain there would have been a kiss.

And, for anyone suggesting either of them aren’t bisexual, there’s Bryan Konietzko’s post on Tumblr where, when talking about Korra and Asami’s relationship, he writes, “Despite what you might have heard, bisexual people are real.”

They’ve had relationships with men; they’re women in a relationship with each other; one of the creators used the word ‘bisexual’ when discussing them…and there are still folks out there claiming these two aren’t bi. To those folks I say:

She’s bi. Korra is bi, bi, bi bi bi. Bi.

Even though Shadow regained his memory over the course of his game, his amnesia wasn’t completely cured. In moments of extreme stress or confusion he’ll go into a relapse of sorts - forgetting important things like his location, the people he’s with, or in really bad cases sometimes what even year it is.

A bit of rest brings back the lost information, and Rouge is often the one to monitor him until he returns to normal.


Her hair was a mane of jet-black ringlets that fell to the small of her back, and around her brow was a band of copper suns. Where the Sand Snakes were tall, Arianne took after her mother, who stood but five foot two. She is still a little thing, the captain thought. Yet beneath her jewelled girdle and loose layers of flowing purple silk and yellow samite she had a woman’s body, lush and roundly curved.
