Legend of Korra x Star Wars: The Force Awakens crossover commission by drakyx from her patreon.
Had to make a request for one of my new favorite Star Wars movie.
It made sense to have Korra as Rey, being the kick-ass female protagonist of the movie. I thought Finn’s quick and funny personality was closer to Bolin’s. Poe really had that cool guy vibe to him so I naturally thought of Mako. This way, Mako and Bolin could have that bromance dynamic that Poe and Finn had in the movie, and Korra and Bolin could have the fun, dynamic relationship as well.
Big thanks drakyx for making this really come to life!
If you watch The Legend of Korra backwards, it’s an epic story about a superhero who comes home from a wonderful gaycation with her girlfriend, only to find that everything has gone to shit and Republic City’s covered in moss. So, she builds a giant robot for a sexy orphan to rebuild the city (with her magical purple laser) and goes on a three year long journey where she ends up sitting in a wheel chair because she was tired of walking for six months straight.
After that, she tangos with four swell assassins who want to put world leaders back in action, and then they kindly put themselves into specially accommodated housing. She also breaks apart the Beifong sisters and Lin and Suyin never speak to each other again. At the same time, Korra kicks all of the Airbenders back to where they came from and takes away Jinora’s tattoos.
Two weeks later, she discovers that she’s really bad at flying kites (even though she swallowed a blue kite not three few minutes ago) and her uncle helps her get a black and red one stuck in a tree, and then they go sledding and party together. Mako gets demoted at work and Bolin drops out of Hollywood and loses all of his money.
A few months later, back at Republic City, our brave superhero pulls a man out of the water with her magical vacuum powers and gives him a free mask. The Masked Man goes around the city giving everyone free bending powers, because he’s just that nice. Our hero reunites her girlfriend with her CEO father and gets a free race car ride as a thank you, but Korra dumps her at a party. Mako, Bolin, and Korra try their luck at sports, but get progressively worse and worse as the story goes on; ending with the Bending Brothers firing Korra for her lack of talent and replacing her with a more reasonable waterbender named Hasook.
Fed up with everyone’s shit (and a heterosexual love triangle she didn’t ask for), Korra takes a ship down to the South Pole and locks herself and her dog away in a magical ice fortress, like Elsa from Frozen.
First, you’ve got ZUKO. I mean, come on. He jumped in front of Azula’s lightning to protect Katara (ZUTARA) and he’s a master firebender trained by The Dragon of the West. Plus, call me biased, but I love him so, yes. He’s been through so much, but he’s not the bitter boy he used to be, and Zutara.
But then you have a bloodbender, who mind you doesn’t actually like bloodbending, but if her sole purpose is to protect you then, maybe. She’s a master waterbender who’s heart is bigger than Ba Sin Sei. She stuck by Aang through thick and thin, and the gAang would be in deep shit without her because she’s goals.
But then you have Toph, who is like, the most baddass chic there is, for too many reasons. She SENSES people coming, she’s a sarcastic little shit who in the inside cares SO MUCH, and I can’t.
But then there’s Mako, who like Zuko, YES. I mean, he’s just like Katara. He will stick by the Avatar no matter what, because that’s his friend (*cough*Makorra*cough*) and at one point he loved her. He’s an amazing firebender who is just a big Mama Bear at heart.
But then there’s the AVATAR, and she’s baddass as well. She’s a trained master in all the elements, and she’s funny and cares about everyone, and will lay down her life for what’s necessary to everyone she loves.
But then there’s Bolin, and he’s just a cinnamon roll that could kill you if you mess with him or the people he cares about. And he’s my baby and if someone hurts him I’ll kill them.
