I’ve been thinking lately for a while after talking to multiple people over the past few months who REALLY love platonic content between shiro and keith but don’t enjoy or feel comfortable using the word “br0ganes” for whatever reasons they have that we really ought to have some kind of other term for this relationship available so it’s even more accessible.
so….SO. this is my Proposal guys, bc it has felt like there’s been a divide between “romance” and “brothers” where people who enjoy them purely as friends with a close platonic bond have nowhere to turn. no romance doesn’t always mean automatically family, but if it does for you thenthat’s absolutely okay.
this is not a commentary on any interpretations of this dynamic please don’t misunderstand this and turn it into that bc i just will not engage nor do i have time or energy for that lark. i’m trying offer something nice for a lot of people who i know are feeling this could be a good thing for us all.
this is intended to create a new platform for this dynamic, no drama will be acknowledged. if this suggestion doesn’t appeal to you, stick with the tags you have nobody is telling you what to do or control your fandom experience!!! Basically: interpret them however you want, that’s great enjoy yourselves.
Anyway, i’m rambling away but yea, i think we could open up some new and really exciting doors exploring their platonic dynamic in an environment that may attract people in a positive new way!!!
So here is my suggestion - take it or leave it, your choice - why don’t we take up the word “Friendsheith” as a tag that could be for strictlyPLATONIC shiro & keith things?
it’s fun and silly!! it’s a dorky pun …. gotta love a pun hahah
it means exactly what it says quite literally there is no way it can cause any confusion: friendship + shiro + keith, very simple!
it could actually benefit everyone in different ways:
if you’re looking for brother au content / brotherly interpretations then it also makes it easier to find that content as platonic content will be tagged elsewhere
if you’re not looking for that or inherent familial nuances: you can find purely platonic shiro and keith content!
it would create a new bracket for shiro and keith that feels a little lacking in the fandom
no risk of crosstagging in any of the pre-existing tags as it’s one set word.
you could still blacklist sheith if you wanted to and it wouldn’t show up or be a bother.
clear separation between sheith & brother au so things are not tagged with both in the same post which can or might upset people
would start an entirely new tag for purely platonic exploration of this dynamic without polarising anyone in the fandom from content they want to engage with
i think there’s real potential in the fandom for this to be something that could spark up some fresh open content for these two devoid of tension between anybody.
if it’s not a word that you want to use, then this post probably isn’t for you - which is completely finebecause you do you!!
Also, you still have the other two words to choose from and use in your content 8)
Win-win situation for everybody tbh in my opinion?
The only thing that could come from this is the prospect of even more content!! So… yes *drops mic* that’s my idea folks 🚀 🚀
this started off as a “the final sacrifice” sorta reference, because what’s the point of having a cult to play with if i can’t make just the worst rowsdower jokes? but then i just kinda liked it more as an actual action pic, so… yeah. went in that direction instead.

We finally have it. The long awaited-comics following Korra, Asami and their epic adventures in the Avatar universe have finally come.
Yes, I know not all of us have the comic in our hands (myself included), but these feelings of excitement, adoration and speechlessness still remain.
After surfing through the Korra/Turf Wars tags on this site, I was reminded of the sheer importance of this entire story. These characters, their relationship, what they represent both individually and together - it all speaks wonders to so many of us. Being able to see photos of people with their Turf Wars book coupled with huge grins on their faces brought me back to the finale of book 4. Seeing Korra and Asami walk hand in hand into their glowing portal was a life-changing moment. I also think it’s safe to say these two have been on a lot of our minds ever since the series ended.
Our lovely ladies are absolute role models and beacons of hope and I cannot express how happy I am that we get to see the new adventures they face together! I’m looking forward to witnessing what these journeys look like with all of you!
Thank you Mike, Bryan, Irene and the rest of the Korra crew for bringing this world to life again.
Long live Korra and Asami!
P.S. I’m thinking of changing my icon to a Turf Wars piece. Hopefully you’ll be able to recognize me!
P.P.S Does any have objections to me posting Turf Wars spoilers now? Or should I wait until the August release??
