You can celebrate it, embrace it, accept it, get over it, or whatever you feel the need to do, but there is no denying it. That is the official story. We received some wonderful press in the wake of the series finale at the end of last week, and just about every piece I read got it right: Korra and Asami fell in love. Were they friends? Yes, and they still are, but they also grew to have romantic feelings for each other.
Was Korrasami “endgame,” meaning, did we plan it from the start of the series? No, but nothing other than Korra’s spiritual arc was. Asami was a duplicitous spy when Mike and I first conceived her character. Then we liked her too much so we reworked the story to keep her in the dark regarding her father’s villainous activities. Varrick and Zhu Li weren’t originally planned to end up as a couple either, but that’s where we took the story/where the story took us. That’s how writing works the vast majority of the time. You give these characters life and then they tell you what they want to do.
I have bragging rights as the first Korrasami shipper (I win!). As we wrote Book 1, before the audience had ever laid eyes on Korra and Asami, it was an idea I would kick around the writers’ room. At first we didn’t give it much weight, not because we think same-sex relationships are a joke, but because we never assumed it was something we would ever get away with depicting on an animated show for a kids network in this day and age, or at least in 2010.
Makorra was only “endgame” as far as the end of Book 1. Once we got into Book 2 we knew we were going to have them break up, and we never planned on getting them back together. Sorry, friends. I like Mako too, and I am sure he will be just fine in the romance department. He grew up and learned about himself through his relationships with Asami and Korra, and he’s a better person for it, and he’ll be a better partner for whomever he ends up with.
Once Mako and Korra were through, we focused on developing Korra and Asami’s relationship. Originally, it was primarily intended to be a strong friendship. Frankly, we wanted to set most of the romance business aside for the last two seasons. Personally, at that point I didn’t want Korra to have to end up with someone at the end of series. We obviously did it in Avatar, but even that felt a bit forced to me. I’m usually rolling my eyes when that happens in virtually every action film, “Here we go again…” It was probably around that time that I came across this quote from Hayao Miyazaki:
“I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live - if I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.”
I agree with him wholeheartedly, especially since the majority of the examples in media portray a female character that is little more than a trophy to be won by the male lead for his derring-do. So Mako and Korra break the typical pattern and end up respecting, admiring, and inspiring each other. That is a resolution I am proud of.
However, I think there needs to be a counterpart to Miyazaki’s sentiment: Just because two characters of the same sex appear in the same story, it should not preclude the possibility of a romance between them. No, not everyone is queer, but the other side of that coin is that not everyone is straight. The more Korra and Asami’s relationship progressed, the more the idea of a romance between them organically blossomed for us. However, we still operated under this notion, another “unwritten rule,” that we would not be allowed to depict that in our show. So we alluded to it throughout the second half of the series, working in the idea that their trajectory could be heading towards a romance.
But as we got close to finishing the finale, the thought struck me: How do I know we can’t openly depict that? No one ever explicitly said so. It was just another assumption based on a paradigm that marginalizes non-heterosexual people. If we want to see that paradigm evolve, we need to take a stand against it. And I didn’t want to look back in 20 years and think, “Man, we could have fought harder for that.” Mike and I talked it over and decided it was important to be unambiguous about the intended relationship.
We approached the network and while they were supportive there was a limit to how far we could go with it, as just about every article I read accurately deduced. It was originally written in the script over a year ago that Korra and Asami held hands as they walked into the spirit portal. We went back and forth on it in the storyboards, but later in the retake process I staged a revision where they turned towards each other, clasping both hands in a reverential manner, in a direct reference to Varrick and Zhu Li’s nuptial pose from a few minutes prior. We asked Jeremy Zuckerman to make the music tender and romantic, and he fulfilled the assignment with a sublime score. I think the entire last two-minute sequence with Korra and Asami turned out beautiful, and again, it is a resolution of which I am very proud. I love how their relationship arc took its time, through kindness and caring. If it seems out of the blue to you, I think a second viewing of the last two seasons would show that perhaps you were looking at it only through a hetero lens.
Was it a slam-dunk victory for queer representation? I think it falls short of that, but hopefully it is a somewhat significant inching forward. It has been encouraging how well the media and the bulk of the fans have embraced it. Sadly and unsurprisingly, there are also plenty of people who have lashed out with homophobic vitriol and nonsense. It has been my experience that by and large this kind of mindset is a result of a lack of exposure to people whose lives and struggles are different from one’s own, and due to a deficiency in empathy––the latter being a key theme in Book 4. (Despite what you might have heard, bisexual people are real!) I have held plenty of stupid notions throughout my life that were planted there in any number of ways, or even grown out of my own ignorance and flawed personality. Yet through getting to know people from all walks of life, listening to the stories of their experiences, and employing some empathy to try to imagine what it might be like to walk in their shoes, I have been able to shed many hurtful mindsets. I still have a long way to go, and I still have a lot to learn. It is a humbling process and hard work, but nothing on the scale of what anyone who has been marginalized has experienced. It is a worthwhile, lifelong endeavor to try to understand where people are coming from.
There is the inevitable reaction, “Mike and Bryan just caved in to the fans.” Well, which fans? There were plenty of Makorra shippers out there, so if we had gone back on our decision and gotten those characters back together, would that have meant we caved in to those fans instead? Either direction we went, there would inevitably be a faction that was elated and another that was devastated. Trust me, I remember Kataang vs. Zutara. But one of those directions is going to be the one that feels right to us, and Mike and I have always made both Avatar and Korra for us, first and foremost. We are lucky that so many other people around the world connect with these series as well. Tahno playing trombone––now that was us caving in to the fans!
But this particular decision wasn’t only done for us. We did it for all our queer friends, family, and colleagues. It is long overdue that our media (including children’s media) stops treating non-heterosexual people as nonexistent, or as something merely to be mocked. I’m only sorry it took us so long to have this kind of representation in one of our stories.
I’ll wrap this up with some incredible words that Mike and I received in a message from a former Korra crew member. He is a deeply religious person who devotes much of his time and energy not only to his faith, but also to helping young people. He and I may have starkly different belief systems, but it is heartwarming and encouraging that on this issue we are aligned in a positive, progressive direction:
“I’ve read enough reviews to get a sense of how it affected people. One very well-written article in Vanity Fair called it subversive (in a good way, of course)… I would say a better word might be “healing.” I think your finale was healing for a lot of people who feel outside or on the fringes, or that their love and their journey is somehow less real or valuable than someone else’s… That it’s somehow less valid. I know quite a few people in that position, who have a lifetime of that on their shoulders, and in one episode of television you both relieved and validated them. That’s healing in my book.”
I am superrr proud of how the eyes turned out, my eyes are a very dark brown and it is pretty hard to photoshop them blue without getting crazy eyes I use these brushes to make the eyes look realistic and I just mess around with lots of different shades and layers
Last month’s suggestion from my Patreon was Ten and Rose from a fanfic adventure and I chose this moment from an old abandoned fic The Mousetrap, combining one of my other paintings, Frozen Tears, and new work. I changed a few things from the fic, like the mirror was hung on the wall, but I like it better here, on the jump seat instead. I’m very happy with how it turned out!

Oh, I know. But perhaps next time you'll double check the number to which you're sending your 'dick pics'.
do i want to know why you stuck your dick in oatmeal for iggy
I hate Nesta in ACOTAR and ACOMAF. After reading ACOWAR, I was still on a fence about her. In fact, I felt kinda uneasy when someone expresses his/her love towards her, cause I still couldn’t forgive Nesta for how she treated Feyre (she has layers, sure, but I still couldn’t not dislike her).
BUT, i’ve thought about her a lot these days and found that she really grew on me and I felt like I was wrong for refusing to see other parts of her. In this post, I am going to compile all the moments that changed my opinion on Nesta and her relationship with Feyre for the better.
Nesta is very proud, that much is clear. She also has the tendency to turn a blind eye towards something she didn’t like or she’s not affected by personally (more about this later on). I think, when it comes to Feyre, Nesta just wanted to reach out to her but doesn’t know how. Nesta also showed a great deal of respect towards her sister, and, sometimes, be inspired by her. Don’t you ever tell me that Nesta doesn’t love and care about Feyre as much as she does Elain. She just have a different dynamic with Feyre.
1. When Feyre asked her to cut some woods or sth, Nesta refused. But, the next morning, Feyre found out that Nesta has cut some woods, anyway. This, to me, is the first inkling on Nesta’s internal conflict between her pride and vulnerability.
2. Nesta made a hurtful remark about Feyre’s “masterpieces”. I hated Nesta for using sth that meant a lot to her sister to, tho not deliberately, hurt her. However, let’s not forget that, the first time Feyre went back from the Spring Court, Nesta asked Feyre to TEACH her how to paint. This is important. I don’t think that Nesta had a particular interest in painting. I think that she was aware of the hurtful comment she directed at Feyre and wanted to let Feyre know that she didn’t mean it, that she didn’t actually belittle her skill. She wanted to let Feyre know that, in fact, she thought Feyre is good enough that she wanted to be taught by her.
3. Nesta went to the wall to look for Feyre. This is already a strong proof of Nesta’s quiet love for Feyre. However, this passage further confirmed it :
“What happened to Tomas Mandray?” I asked, the words strangled.
“I realized he wouldn’t have gone with me to save you from Prythian.”
Nesta never loved Tomas, I know, but at the beginning, she was very adamant about marrying him, even after Feyre told her over and over again to not marry him (cause Nesta hates feeling like a burden and she wanted to get out of the house and took care of herself). Anyway, one would think that her breaking up with Tomas isn’t about Feyre at all, that she was only doing it because she was worried that, comes a time when Elain needs help, Tomas wouldn’t help her. But, if that were the case, Nesta would not have broken up with Tomas right then and there. She would have just went back, and broke up with Tomas only when he wouldn’t help Elain. However, what actually happened next showed that Feyre meant as much to her as Elain.
4. Nesta talked to Feyre about her complete disappointment towards their father, she said,
“He let her die. You would have gone to the ends of the earth to save your High Lord.”
I always have a feeling that Nesta understood Feyre more than she let on ; this quote is one of the inklings that I got.
5.“What do you think you can even do to help? He’s a High Lord—you’re just a human.” That wasn’t an insult, either. A question from a coolly calculating mind.
This is how Nesta showed her concern. She did the same thing in ACOWAR.
6. “But Nesta held my gaze. Unflinching.”
“Prythian!” my father and Elain blurted. But Nesta held up a hand to silence them.
My sister helped me, then opened the wardrobe to pull out a heavy tunic and pants and boots. I slipped into them and was braiding back my hair when she said, “We don’t need you here, Feyre. Do not look back.”
What this whole scene showed me is that Nesta respected Feyre and has always been aware of her strength. Instead of holding Feyre back, she let her do what she wanted. The same thing happened in ACOWAR, when Feyre went to find the Suriel and Nesta didn’t tell anyone about it. She respected Feyre’s need to go unnoticed and she believe that Feyre really could do what she wanted to do.
This scene also showed that Nesta truly wanted to be there for her sister in her own way.
8. “Try to send word once it’s safe. And if it ever is … Father and Elain can have this place. I think I’d like to see what else is out there, what a woman might do with a fortune and a good name.”
Don’t ever tell me that Nesta didn’t care about Feyre. She was worried about Feyre, but she didn’t want to prevent Feyre from experiencing more than what their little village could offer.
9. Another detail i’d like to point out is that Nesta hired a mercenary to take her to the wall “With the money from [Feyre’s] pelt.” Before this, I thought that she just spent all the money Feyre gave her, but she actually saved them and used them to get to Feyre.
10. This one we all already know, but I’ll include it anyway.
“…If he would actually go out and fight for us. I couldn’t take care of
us, not the way you did. I hated you for that. But I hated him more.”
There wasn’t a lot of details about them in this book. However, I found one it the short story from the Target Edition.
“How is my sister?”
“So busy she cannot deign to visit, it seems”
This was the first thing she asks Cassian. Again, don’t you tell me Nesta didn’t care about Feyre or that she wanted nothing to do with her.
1. Remember in ACOMAF when Feyre didn’t look comfortable with eating human food and Nesta made a curt comment about it? In Acowar, during dinner, Nesta said to Feyre that she know understood what she meant by food tasting differently.I see it as Nesta’s way of apologizing.
2. Of course, the scene in the library where Feyre asked Nesta why she pushed everyone away except Elain. Then Nesta closed her eyes and took a deep breath before starting to answer Feyre (THEN OF COURSE IT GOT INTERRUPTED). Nesta closing her eyes and breathing deeply before answering means sth to me. it tells me that she also hates how badly she has been treating Feyre. I NEED TO KNOW WHY. NOW.
Also, Nesta told Feyre how she didn’t know that Feyre really couldn’t read, “I thought you could read as well as we do”. She neglected Feyre during her hunting years, now she found out that she had no idea Feyre couldn’t read. I saw this as Nesta being upset for failing her sister again.
3. Before Feyre and the rest of the Night Court when to the Summer Court to fight with them, Nesta asked, “What do you know of battle?“.
4. That time when Nesta said to Feyre, “You look beautiful” before they went to the meeting with the High Lords. I love her ease in the way she conveyed it. Slowly, guys. She’s reaching out.
Nesta was so riled up when Feyre asked her to talk to the HIgh Lords
about what happened to her. However, in the end, she decided to brace
herself and talk about her story because she didn’t wanna be remembered
as a coward.
Nesta said : “It was some distant thing, war. Battle. It…it’s not anymore. i will help…if I can”
Then she also said
: “You went off to battle for a court you barely know-who barely see
you as friends…And when I asked you why…you said because it was the
Earlier, when I said Nesta has the tendency to
turn a blind eye towards something she didn’t like or she’s not affected
by personally, this is what I mean (Also, tho I can’t find the passage
in the book, I swear Nesta said sth along the lines of “Isn’t there
someone who could do it for me?”. I forgot what the conversation was
about tho. You can even blame this side of her for neglecting Feyre all these years). Now that she’s in the midst of war, she decided to be
involved and Feyre is the one that inspired her greatly to finally open
up herself and be braver.
6. At the meeting with the High Lords.
“To be close to the Walls-and human lands”
At this, Nesta and I exchanged looks
Idk what else to say about this. it was just a nice moment worth mentioning.
7.“But beneath the wall, I witnessed children-entire families-starve to death”
She jerked her chin at me. “Were it not for my sister… I would be among them”
This is soooooo important. Nesta didn’t sweep Feyre’s sacrifices under the rug, okay? Again, she just didn’t know to to show Feyre how grateful she was.
8. Nesta told Feyre about her “cost” of being a fae : seeinng Elain suffered while she went unscathed. Also, she told Feyre she couldn’t get into bathtubs anymore because it triggered her memory. This was after Feyre to her about her fear of close spaces. Feyre has become someone Nesta could really confide in and I love that.
9. The night Elain got kidnapped. Feyre rushed out of the tent to look for Nesta.
“…she was already there, hurrying for me..”
It was Feyre she ran to first when she sensed that sth is wrong.
10. When Az, Feyre, Elain, and Briar arrived safely at the camp, Nesta SPRINTED towards Feyre FIRST, hugged her, and said “Thank you”.
11. DON’T FORGET THE ARCHERON SISTERS CUDDLE.
SO, GUYS. I do believe that Nesta loves, cares, respects Feyre and she has been trying to reach out to her and be there for her in her own way. This is really an interesting dynamic and I’m excited for what’s in store for them in the next book.
I would like to reiterate that I hate the spiteful side of Nesta. When
her father lost his fortune and couldn’t (or wouldn’t) take care of
them, and after she and Elain was turned into Faes. I get that,
especially the whole fae thing, it was a freaking difficult thing to
deal with, but she was still awful to everyone. So, I am very aware of
the terrible things she’s said and done. I don;t think she’s a saint or
anything, but I want to see her redeem herself. I don’t even expect her
to literally apologize to Feyre (that would be such a DRASTIC change),
but I am hoping for more moments like these.
On a side note, I think Nesta’s dynamic with Elain has its flaws as well. I’m still not sure about this, and some of you might disagree. I feel like Nesta sees Elain as some fragile little flower. Her protectiveness towards Elain feels a bit much to me. She didn’t include Elain in the matter about Prythian in ACOMAF (In the short story with Cassian, we know that Nesta doesn’t want Elain to be involved). There are other details as well but I can’t remember now. Anyway, again, we’ll see what happens in the next book.
Overall, I can see how their relationship is taking shape now. I expect Nesta to continue to be very doting, gentle, and protective towards Elain. However, I think Feyre is gonna be the one that she confides it the most, that understands her better, that inspired her the most.
Tell me what you think. I would love to talk more about their relationship.
Request: Hello! I was wondering if you could one where Peter tries to teach the reader how to use a skateboard, but is completely unaware about the fact that the reader already knows how to use one and can do tricks and such. And when the reader shows her skills to him, Peter becomes speechless but at the same time he’s also very proud and happy :))
A/N: So this follows the request, but I don’t like the way it turned out at all. I didn’t really know how to do it, so I apologize in advance for if it is too bad. I’m sorry for the person who requested it but I am not feeling really inspired at the moment and the requests are piling up, so I had to get this over with :( Sorry :(
Looking at Peter do different flips on his skateboard trying to show off, you couldn’t help but smirk. He had taken you to the park in hopes of impressing you; and you were, because he was good, but so were you. You had never told him that you liked skateboarding -just because you had never found a reason to do it. ‘Come on, [Y/N]! Come here!’ he shouted, waving at you. You walked up to him, trying not to laugh at how excited he was. You took his hand and he put you gently on the skateboard, holding your hips so you wouldn’t fall. ‘Put your feet like-like that, exactly’ he said surprised. ‘How about you try to skateboard a few meters so you get used to it and then I try to teach you flips?’ he asked. You laughed softly and started doing it really slowly at first, and once Peter thought you knew what you were doing, you started to do flips and so, showing off a little. You smiled proudly when you saw his mouth hanging open, not believing what he was seeing. ‘You know, maybe I should have told you that I have been skating since I was, what, seven? I don’t really know. I do know that I have many trophies from tournaments’ you said, smirking. Getting off the skateboard, you walked up to him, giving him a peck on the lips. ‘You… You are so incredibly amazing. I can’t believe we are dating -it feels like a dream. I want to show you off and be like ‘hey guys, this is my girlfriend, she is sexy and skateboards’’ Peter said, laughing. You laughed and hugged him, your head pressed against his chest. ‘I love you very much’ he whispered, his lips pressed against your hair, before kissing your forehead. You took the skateboard in one hand and his hand in the other, and walked along the park, talking about stupid things and laughing together.

I am very pleased to introduce my new baby, Dyson the Pitbull!! I am SOOO proud of how he turned out!! I tried lots of new things on him and learned lots! The rest of him is almost done as well, I just need to shave his second hand, make his feet and finish the padding on his bodysuit. You guys will be able to see him running around FurTheMore later this month!
Can I just say how proud I am that none of you are buying into the lies about Mad Cool? I was very apprehensive about using tumblr today in case anybody had turned on Green Day but honestly, I should have known better. If any fandom understands how the media distorts the truth, it’s us.
I love you all. Let’s see this for what it was and try to be rational and level headed if we’re confronted or goaded into discussing it. My heart goes out to everybody who will be affected by this tragedy.

A/N: And here is the other story @ly–canthrope, thanks for requesting. Have a great Sebastian Sunday! :)
You pace nervously in the apartment, using your fingers to
play with your lips. He was due back any second now, having sent you a text
from the airport. It had been months since you’d last seen Sebastian, your
boyfriend, as he’d been over in Germany for the Captain America: Civil War filming.
You had to talk to him. All this travelling, all this work
he’d been throwing himself into; you loved it. You were so proud of him for his
success in his career just… it was beginning to be a bit much for you.
