Classically, I have been a Makorra shipper.
Then the finale hit, and Korra and Asami had the most beautiful, heartfelt moment. I was instantly hooked. I really hope we get some Korra comics like we did with ATLA… I already need more Korrasami in my life!
Not only do I think it’s fantastic that the LGBTQ community is getting some much needed positive representation in the media, but I actually think Korra and Asami are perfect for each other. They are two sides of a coin. Asami is technical and logical. Korra is powerful and headstrong. When Korra was suffering from PTSD, Asami not only gave her the space she needed, but was there for her at exactly the right moments, in exactly the right ways. Asami will ground Korra when she needs to be, and Korra will lift Asami when she must.
Not to mention…umm…they’re freaking ADORABLE together?!?!?!
Like can you two STAHP?!?!?!
You two cannot be THIS powerful and THIS beautiful at the same time?!?!?!
Anyway. I think Makorra ran it’s course. Korra and Mako were in love once, and now they’re not. That’s how love works. Sometimes it fades, and when it does, it doesn’t always leave a gaping hole. Korra and Mako still love each other, just in a different way. I think Korra needs Asami now, and Asami needs Korra. Basically…I am so freaking happy they’re a thing. Four for you, LOK writers. Four for you. You did the thing.
