and bolin's face


That one time Asami low-key confesses to Korra because you could cut the tension with a knife. Bolin thinks he’s helping.

  • Ikki asking Huan to dye a stripe in her hair. Tenzin overhearing and saying “NO!”. And Ikki’s like “Why not?! You let Jinora get tattoos!”
  • Su trying to get Lin to dance with one of the cute waiters.

  • Mako and Korra dancing cutely as friends, and Mako telling her he sees what’s going on with her and Asami ;)

Korra, Ikki, and Lin all make some pretty ridiculous faces in season 1, but then suddenly from then on it seems like only Bolin can make stupid faces. do you think this was (maybe unintended) sexism, or just the fact that Bolin was essentially walking comic relief until season 4? or maybe just a stylistic choice? or some other thing?

They certainly leaned on Bolin more and more for comic relief, to the point where it was cringe-worthy (“stick a sock in it”), but I gotta be honest, as soon as I read this ask all I could think was:

 “BOLIN, WHAT THE HELL!!!!” Asa Hisses as she holds her cheek, odviously angry at the sudden assult.

 “Bah, Its been so long and you still cant hear me coming, How sad~” The sawk Snickers cockily with a grin. “ Proves im still better than you~”.

 Asa jumps to her feet angrily, Before smiling, “Huh, S’ been so long, and youre still the same. Shorter, bad insults, and~” She feels her long fluffy crest with a smile, “Bald~”.

Bolin’s eye twitches and he raises a fist at Asa, “YOU KNOW I CANT HAVE HAIR YOU OVERGROWN MUTT!!!”.

 Asa feels her head once again, “I know, But for some amazing reason Your boyfriend can~” She laughs at Bolins face growing a deep red of embarresment.

“….Ok, enough talk” He raises his fists. “We both know we aint good at it, so lets fight, Little Pookachuuu~” 

Asa suddenly glares at her friend as her mouth blazes on fire. “Whatever you say, Budda head.”

An intense anime battle stance ingages.


Then suddenly Asa gets held up in the air and Bolin facepalms on the ground.

“GYACH” Asa yells in confusion, Bolin in pain.

Footsteps can be herd from the forest, A low Femminine grumble from the thicket.

The large gardevoir hybrid grumbles, “ “Yalls be fuckin crazy, we meet up after a damn year and ya already fightin, i should whip yalls asses WITH MY LARGE ASS FUCKIN HANDS” She hisses, odviously angered.

Twin gothitells stand besides her, the Sister waving as the brother slowly shakes his head.

Asa goes wide eyed as she is held up in the sky. “BECK!! MARIPOSA!!! AND uh..Hey Victor”. Asa turns her head as she drips a bead sweat.

“Nice to see you two again!” Mariposa holds her hands together with a smile, As they slowly put asa on the ground. “Its been too long! Look at you! Youre so much fuzzier than before!” The gothitelle puts her hands on asa’s cheeks with a smile.

“Uh, Mind letting me go Victorian ripoff?” Bolin looks up to Victor with a bit of irritation.

Things I Love About LoK

Goal: Write 1 thought every day re: why I love The Legend of Korra until I finish rewatching the series.  

#140: Bolin’s conversation with Ghazan and Ming Hua in “Long Live the Queen.”

I’ve commented before on how Bolin and his ‘arc’ (such as it is) confound me. But regardless of how I feel about his character development throughout the series, I still love him because he is hilarious. Only Bolin can pull off scenes like the one where he and Mako are in the truck with Ghazan and Ming Hua in “Long Live the Queen.”

I love Mako’s disapproval face as Bolin strikes up a conversation with their captors:

I love that Bolin has this disarming ease about him – his friendliness bring out little interesting factoids about how Ghazan and Ming Hua spent their years in imprisonment:

Bolin: So you guys were, like, locked up for fifteen years, huh? That must have been, like, crazy boring.
Ghazan: Actually, it was only thirteen years, but it felt like thirty.
Bolin: I mean, what did you do with all that time? Did you sing songs, work on crafts?
Ming-Hua: Not a lot of craft supplies in a volcanic prison cell.
Ghazan: And I must have renamed the constellations about a thousand times. When it rained, that was a big event.
Ming-Hua: Oh, I would’ve killed for some rain. Mostly I just made up stories about the guards. Who was having trouble with his girlfriend? Which one secretly wished he’d become a pastry chef?

The factoids, in turn, give us a fleeting glimpse into Ghazan and Ming Hua’s characters.  

And of course, I love Bolin’s three guesses about Ghazan:

Bolin: Ooh, okay, that sounds like fun. Let me try that on you guys. You were raised by an older sister. Your mustache grew in when you were ten. And I’m sensing- just sensing- an unspoken attraction between you two.
Ghazan: Two out of three. Not bad.
Mako: Bolin, will you stop making friends with the bad guys?
Bolin: Sorry. 

A great scene that humanizes Ghazan and Ming Hua while highlighting Bolin’s easygoing nature (and Mako’s seriousness).  


Korra Fancast/Dreamcast because why not

  • Korra - Zoe Kravitz
  • Asami - Seychelle Gabriel
  • Mako - Boo Boo Stewart
  • Bolin - Ryan Potter

I don’t think Bolin was used by Kuvira only to hand out food to the civilians.
He was a Corporal. I am not a specialist when it comes to military things, but I think he also had other things to do for her… maybe fight.

I messed up the design of his uniform, that’s because first I wanted to make this for my Modern AU but then I thought, naah… I haven’t drawn much for the official story of Korra for a long time :D 

headcanon: Wei tries to teach Bolin how to metal bend and it actually works out pretty well because this time he doesn’t just throw metal at his face and Bolin isn’t feeling pressured and stressed out about learning. In exchange, Bolin tries to teach Wei how to lava bend and it goes less well because Wei is convinced that Bolin should give him a “trial by fire” by pelting lava at him since Bolin’s own discovery of lava bending was a definite sink or swim moment. Bolin…is not fond of this idea.
