Finished the fault in our stars last night. Needless to say I was all out bawling by the end. I cried when Augustus died but I didn’t really lose it until the end when hazel is reading the eulogy he wrote for her. JOHN GREEN WHAT THE HELL?! Rip my heart out why don’t you!
Imagine Zaheer and Korra regularly meeting in the spirit world to discuss politics and philosophy as they both grow older. While they don’t always agree on the matter, Korra learns to accept and appreciate a different point of view while Zaheer enjoys a little bit of company in his otherwise lonely existence. It would be an interesting friendship, wouldn’t it be?
I haven’t posted much in the past month, but I felt this was something I needed to weigh in on. There’s been a lot of nasty vitriol on Tumblr since the ending aired. While I truly sympathize with all the people that feel left by the wayside, I’ve decided to write up my thoughts on the ending in an attempt to show the angry people of Tumblr a different point of view.
Before I begin, I’d like to summarize my mindset for this. The most important thing is that I don’t ship anyone in The Legend of Korra. That’s not to say I dislike shipping or romance, but I tend to focus much more on friendship. Having said that, I still liked the idea of Makorra at endgame; I just didn’t particularly care about it. Instead, my personal preference was to see Korra not ending up with anyone.
I didn’t even like Korrasami all that much, especially for the first two Books; it truly felt like people were shipping them just because Asami was the only other female protagonist near Korra’s age—a mindset I was determined to avoid—or because they hated Mako and his actions. To me, neither of these reasons were valid ones for envisioning Korrasami at endgame.
