Legend of Korra - Korrasami - Rated: General Audiences

My contribution to second day of Avatar Femslash Week, this time going for the topic: Night!

It’s so crushing how much hope I have for Korrasami even though I know in my heart that it probably won’t happen
I NEED KORRASAMI
I NEED IT LIKE FOOD
LIKE WATER
LIKE THE EARTH QUEEN NEEDS AIR
LIKE ZUKO NEEDS HONOR
LIKE KATARA NEEDS HOPE
LIKE SOKKA NEEDS HIS BOOMERANG
I WANT IT LIKE AMON WANTED EQUALITY
LIKE UNALAQ WANTED THE SPIRITS
LIKE ZAHEER WANTED ANARCHY
AND FINALLY
MOST IMPORTANTLY
I
LOVE
KORRASAMI
LIKE THE CABBAGE VENDOR LOVES HIS CABBAGES

I Used Korrasami To Come Out As Bisexual To My Dad

Me: You know Asami? The nonbender girl?

Dad: Yeah sort of

Me: Well Korra ends up with her.

Dad: Ends up how?

Me: Y'know, romantically

Dad: I thought Korra was with the fire bender guy

Me: Oh they broke up. He was stupid and decided to break up with her.

Dad: He was stupid?

Me: Yeah. They had goal differences at the time and never got back together. Then she and Asami ended up together.

Dad: So she ended up gay.

Me: No, she’s not gay.

Dad: Yes she is.

Me: NO she isn’t.

Dad: yES she IS

Me: There is such thing as being bisexual!

Dad: gaaAaY

Me: Bisexuallllll. The attraction to twooo genderssss

Dad: Are YOU attracted to two genders????

Me: YEAH I AM

I just finished watching The Legend of Korra.
I have a few bones to pick but the biggest one is that Korra never regained her ability to contact her past lives.
I think that I wouldn’t be as angry about it if it had been written better. Season two’s ending did not sit well with me at all.
For me, the mythology of the spirit world was kind of ruined. I loved it in Avatar. But they changed it so much in Korra. Don’t get me wrong, I loved seeing Uncle Iroh and visiting the spirit library but it wasn’t the same.
With Korra’s disconnection from her past lives, I felt a disconnection from this show and Avatar. Part of the allure and beauty of the spirit world was the current avatar learning from their predecessor in the spirit world. We had two scenes with Aang and Korra. We had the ending to season one and when Korra learned about Wan. I feel robbed because I was hoping we would have an Aang/Roku kind of relationship between Korra and Aang. I was waiting and hoping that Aang would come on a spirit Appa and show Korra the wonders of the spirit world. I am not saying it should have been the same. The Legend of Korra definitely has its own feel but I just wish that we could have seen Aang give guidance to Korra. I didn’t get to see Korra tell Aang that the air benders were back. There is so much that could have been done with the two of them.
I found myself crying at the end of Korra. Not because of what happened, but because of what didn’t happen. I heard that there are going to be books continuing the story. I don’t know if that’s true, but for the mean time I feel that Legend of Korra’s last season could have been much more satisfying…
