Whoohoo first trip to the Bristol Renaissance Faire this summer. The remodel was brilliant. Though I can’t recall if I saw the cage by the chalk artist. That’s usually a staple group pic area for my friends and I….if its still there someone should let me know. I only got asked if I was Zelda (the person meant Link I imagine, fucking noobs) once. It was really hot though, that was the main downside. Also I wish the shops would update their goods a bit more. Like leather and clothing shops. Next time I go it’ll probably be more for the shows. Which I’m usually meh about. But since the shoppibg is kinda meh, I’m more into it. Minus the joust cuz its the same EVERY YEAR, except for thatvone time Max acually and rightfully won.

AU. Every ten years, comes Vaatu’s Reckoning. A barbaric festival set to remind humanity on who rules and coats the world in darkness. During this festival, a human sacrifice is demanded to stave off Vaatu’s total wrath. A sacrifice of an innocent who is full of strength, pure of heart, and brimming with talent.

Korra is a promising Waterbender and leader of her team of Balancers, a squad of four powerful warriors that each manipulate the elements. A fateful encounter with a young woman leads her to believe maybe it can’t be all that bad to live in a world consumed with darkness. As quickly this romantic encounter crosses her, it’s threatened to be ripped away. Korra vows to fight against the current and undo a thousand year old tradition to save the girl.
