i love her so much!!!!

"Excuse me, Tenzin, Varrick is looking for you. Something about wanting to borrow a glider suit to fly off the tower?"

"That doesn’t seem like a good idea!"

"Wanna sit with me for a minute? I’m not ready to get back to the party just yet." … "I don’t think I ever really apologized."

"For what?"

"For being gone all that time, for not coming back sooner."

"You don’t need to apologize for anything, I’m just so happy you’re here now… I don’t think I could have handled losing you and my father in the same day.”

"I am so sorry about what happened.”

"Thank you. I’m just glad I was able to forgive him."

"So… what now? Back to the dance floor?"

"I’m kind of all danced out. Honestly, after everything that’s happened the past few months, I could use a vacation."

"Let’s do it! Let’s… go on a vacation, just the two of us, anywhere you want!"

"Really!? Okay… I’ve always wanted to see what the Spirit World’s like."

"Sounds perfect."

Korrasami (is canon) : The Legend of Korra | The Last Stand

One of my favourite pas de deuxs from Neumeier’s ‘Lady of the Camellias’ - an excerpt performed by Olga Smirnova and Artem Ovcharenko (their debuts in these roles).

 Literature meme: 1/? leitmotives: The death (and occasionally the ressurection) of the beloved woman (Edgar Allan Poe)

Featured in the poem “Annabel Lee” and such short stories as “Berenice”, “Ligeia”, “Morella”, “Eleonora”, “The Fall of House Usher”.

Edgar Allan Poe’s women’s tales featured deceased female protagonists, whose presence was evocated by devoted and mournful widowers. Poe’s heroines arise as men’s construct of the poetics of eternal beauty, while male horrified narrators gradually discover their late wives’ ethereal appearance betrays a decidedly, and repulsive, strong will. 

 They represent romanticised women and act as emotional catalysts for their male partners. The concept of using females merely as a means to a male end appears in “The Philosophy of Composition”, where Poe unveils his philosophy of beauty. The value of what is viewed lies solely in the response induced in the observer. Thus, the woman must die in order to enlarge the experience of the narrator, her viewer. As widely known, Poe asserted that the death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world. While subjects of his creations, they are also objects of his thoughts.

 Even though Poe’s women apparently look delicate and frail, heroines such as Morella, Ligeia, Madeline or even Berenice manage to trespass the limits of life and death through their wilfulness and determination to persist in time, resembling female vampire fi gures, while their self-will is often demonised by mystified male narrators. 

The horror that Poe’s stories dramatize is the impossibility of dying. Either the dead literally come back to life or their undying death is given form in the event of premature burial.Despite acting as their creator, the narrator is always dependent on his female creations. 

Critics have used biographical and psychological arguments to explain Poe’s concept of women. Poe lost an unusual number of beautiful, relatively young females in his lifetime: his mother, Eliza Poe; his foster mother, Fanny Allan; the mother of one of his friends, Jane Stanard; her aunt, Mrs Clemm, and his own wife, Virginia Clemm. Critics argue if art was for him a form of mourning, a revisitation of his past and of what he had lost again and again.
