korra you need to be happy

Have some Shiro and Keith to brighten your Thursday. I had to take a break from clean comic lines, animated proportions and halftone and this sort of happened? Whew - nice to go back to my style comfort zone!

So - I finally finished Voltron season 2 - can you tell? Yeah - pretty sure I ship the hell out of this now. Keith’s character development was so awesome. I just need these precious space babies to have a happy ending T_T. 

If you haven’t seen Voltron yet - you should! You may not think it’s something you would normally enjoy, but trust me it will grab you. It’s done by the same team that did Avatar and Korra. So if you liked those it will blow your mind.

Also I need to know - who the hell was that Galra in the Weblum??

The Evolution of Korrasami

Early Season 1.

Korra: I don’t even know you but I really don’t like you.

Asami: I don’t even know you but for some reason I like you.

Mid Season 1.

Korra: Wow, I was wrong about you! I kind of like you now.

Asami: I think you’re ama~zing! *Vibrates*

Late Season 1.

Korra: I think we’re friends now.

Asami: You’re the cause of my problems with Mako in a way but I don’t blame you one bit. Oh and I really like you.

Season 2.

Korra: We’re friends! :D

Asami: I think I’m beginning to really like you. What is this feeling?

Early Season 3.

Korra: I don’t know what this feeling is, but I’m glad we’ve become best friends.

Asami: I think I’m falling in love with you. *_* I’ll test the waters by flirting.

Mid Season 3.

Korra: Why am I checking you out all the time and constantly smiling at you? This makes no sense!

Asami: Okay, I’m pretty sure I’m really falling in love with you.

Late Season 3.

Korra: … I’m glad you’re here for me…

Asami: Yup, I’m definitely in love with you. I’ll let you know subtly and let you know that I’m always here for you if you need anything.

Early Season 4.

Korra: Holy shit, I’ve realized you mean so much to me! Please, take my only letter to anyone!

Asami: The love of my life is coming back…?

Mid Season 4.

Korra: Oh my spirits I think I’m in love with you.

Asami: The love of my life is back! :D

Late Season 4.

Korra: Yup, I’m definitely in love with you. Want to go on an extended vacation to the Spirit World for our first date?

Asami: Oh my spirits she actually reciprocates my feelings! We’re finally gonna be happy for the rest of our lives! :D

  • Legend of Korra S1: Forget Mako, these two should run away together. YOU DON'T NEED HIM. BE HAPPY TOGETHER.
  • Legend of Korra S2: Yes. Be friends. Be more than friends. Do it. Do the thing.
  • Legend of Korra S3: Ahahaha wow this is actually getting kind of gay, no one tell them how gay this is getting.
  • Legend of Korra finale: THEY KNEW. THEY KNEW HOW GAY IT WAS.

Yo I think you're reading way too much into that one fanart with Fareeha doing push-ups with Ziegler on her back. That is a common trope within American media and I don't think it was meant to represent servitude. All the other shit I agree with you tho there are some fucked up fanart/ists.

It probably wasn’t meant to be, but you need to think about the racialized contexts of a white woman sitting on top of a brown woman, even if she’s just doing push-ups. it looks like servitude, especially since Pharah looks angry and Mercy looks like she doesn’t care. like if they wanted a healthy friendly exercise activity wouldn’t they both be happy or laughing? it looks creepier the way it is now.

I know this trope, I’ve seen this same thing with Korra and Asami but depicted in a much healthier way.

I love your art. It's sweet, cute, and it makes me smile like a dork. I especially love your drawings where Korra gives Asami roses. At least they look like roses. Sometimes I think about those drawings when I need to cheer myself up. So happy to have your art in my icon too!

Gawh thank you!! Don’t worry, I’m always in dork mode. <3

Mako teaches Korra how to bend lightning. Or attempts to.


“Thanks again for doing this, Mako. I really appreciate it.”

“Of course. If the Avatar thinks she needs to learn how to bend lightning, I would be honored to teach her.”

Korra’s face fell slightly. “And if Korra wants to learn?" 

Mako shifted his weight and cleared his throat. "You’re the same person, I’d be happy to teach you either way.”

Keep reading

Colors?  Backgrounds?  The Spirit World is worth it.  Used this here thing as reference (a.k.a., this is what I thought of when I saw that).

leeryluthor  asked:

Omg I saw all the Korrasami on my dash from your blog and I got hit with nostalgia because Korrasami is my OTP forever and always. Do you have a fic rec by chance?

Yeah sorry about that, I fell into a Korrasami shipping hole. I have extremely high standards for fan fic so most of the fics on my list are nothing short of amazing.

They say that true love hurts. Well, this could almost kill me. by frenetic_core

“In a world where you share in the pain of your soul mate, the Avatar’s other half has it pretty rough. (Soul mate AU where they can feel each other’s physical and emotional pain to a degree.) Updates sporadically. Will cover Books 1-4.” This is pretty fucking amazing but it’s not finished. I still highly highly HIGHLY recommend you read this. 

Venti Sized Crush by ZoeReed

“Tumblr prompt: I’m a barista and you’re the obnoxious customer who comes through and orders a venti macchiato while talking on the phone the whole time so I mispell your name in increasingly creative ways every day AU.” This is pretty good, it’s not my favorite but it manages to be fluffy and somehow still angsty. 

The Seeking Balance Series by SimplyKorra

“The story of Korra’s recovery, starting from the night after her fight with The Red Lotus. This is a detailed account of the things she went through, how it affected her and those who love her. With the added twist of her saying yes when Asami asks to go with her to the Southern Water Tribe to heal.” Definitely my favorite Book 3 fic, or even my favorite one ever. It does such a wonderful job dealing with Korra’s recovery and PTSD and the priority of their relationship and ugh, just go fucking read it already it’s just everything I imagined it to be. 

Cool For the Summer by iamyouropus (adieu_sweetamaryllis)

“It’s been three years since Korra left for college. Three long years since she’s talked to her friends. Now, she’s coming home for the summer just in time for a road trip with the old gang.Korrasami beach-house AU slow burn. Mentions of past Korra/Kuvira. Might be mentions of Mako/Wu.” This is one of my favorite AUs ever. It deals with Korra struggling with coming out and it’s just fucking amazing. It’s still being updated and I’m a beta for this story and you HAVE to read this.

I Could Make You New Legs by psocoptera

“For the first month after Korra leaves, Asami doodles wheelchairs. Post episode 4x02. An Asami-centric companion piece to ‘Korra Alone’.” I’m not going to lie, I cried. This is a one-shot and it’s beautiful and it’s probably not supposed to make me cry but it hit me in all the right spots also here I am crying. Just go read it okay?

all our lives by valedictories

“Asami is her heart; Asami is her home. And soon, now, Asami will be her wife. (Alternatively: Korra really needs to find better hiding places for important things.)” This is also a one-shot and written beautifully.

if these sheets were the states by neurolingual

“(“I love you.” Asami presses her words over the bruise on Korra’s eye. She echoes it on every cut and bandage she can find on Korra’s body, feels Korra’s hand in her hair, feels Korra’s heartbeat underneath her lips, warm and strong and alive. Alive.

Korra’s mouth burns like fire against Asami’s lips, hands framing Asami’s ribs when Asami pulls the sheets over them, closes the world away. Asami stops wondering what it’s like to imagine and curls into the real thing).” Another one-shot that I also cried reading. It’s fucking amazing and I am so happy we have such tremendous writers in this fandom.

eclipse by clarias

“Korra growing up in the South Pole.” This one’s a shorty but it’s so beautiful and gods I need to find more adjectives but there’s just so many great ones out there and just go read this please.

It’s such a gorgeous sight to see you in the middle of the night by natashass

“She texts Bolin: Good news: Asami isn’t a ghost that eats my ramen noodles.” This is the second most read fic in the entire Korrasami fandom I think and for good reason. This was the first Korrasami fic I read and I wasn’t disappointed. 

The Electric Soldier by lupinely

“When Jinora finds Korra in the swamp, she tells Korra that a group calling themselves the normalists have kidnapped and killed Asami. At least, that’s what they say they’ve done. A Captain America: The Winter Soldier-inspired season 4 AU.” THIS. THIS FUCKED ME UP BIG TIME. LIKE. HOLY FUCKING SHIT. YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW. RIGHT NOW. MY FAVORITE FIC OF ALL TIME. 

All Roads by tofsla

“Republic City to Ba Sing Se, with a number of lessons learnt in the process. Korra and Asami take a road trip.” Another great, great, GREAT one-shot.

Like Broken Thunder by neurolingual

“They’re the last ones in the mess hall, so they’re at the end of the line, but Asami doesn’t care. She can see the skin on Korra’s shoulders move, stretching the dusted freckles near her neck when she motions through the technique she learned from her father when she was waist high, too. Just like Asami.” This is fucking awesome and made me miss camp all over again fuck.

Here is my soul, I hope you like it.

List of queer/lgbtqia things that are safe to watch

And by safe I mean no one dies and or has a happy/slightly ambiguous ending

Legend of Korra: ok do i even need to explain this one enjoy the korrasami

Debs: this is the lesbian spy gets together with the villain movie you want to watch it’s good it’s gay and no one dies

Person of Interest: i mean who knows when it’s gonna show up again but so far it’s safe

Go On: a show about people in a support group. It’s a comedy, and all the tragedy has happened before the show even started, so the point is that all the main characters have gone through tragedy but like I said, it’s a comedy and funny and has Matthew Perry Laura Benanti and Julie White

Alto (a movie with the description “Two girls. One gun. The Mob. Because coming out to family is hard. But coming out to “family” is funny.” this is the lesbian mafia story you are looking for, which i’ve also made/in the process of making gifs to)

But I’m a Cheerleader: “A naive teenager is sent to rehab camp when her straitlaced parents and friends suspect her of being a lesbian” it has a happy ending I swear

South of Nowhere: An old one, yes, but the main pairing are two queer girls and happy endings (I haven’t seen it all, but you can watch the first two episodes here)

Girltrash: ok i honestly I don’t know too much about this one but I’m 90% sure it ends in happiness this is the lesbian rocker movie

Carol: “Harold they’re lesbians”

anyone wanna add anything?

I’ve had this in mind for a while, i finally got around to getting it out there. I have to give some credit to my artist workmates for helping me conceptualize the background. I had a vague idea but sometimes you just need some help to get it out the right way. Sooo happy with the result, it really conveys the spiritual side to Korra i was going for. Will be available at SMASH! 2015



Korra and Asami can’t wait to make their relationship official, but they decide to stick with the extended Team Avatar first. They decide to do so during a small party.

Tenzin approves, saying something about how Korra keeps changing the world and yes, Ikki, not all relationships look like him and Pema.

Nobody has been able to locate Varrick and Zhu Li during the past two weeks.

Lin just gives Korra a clap on the shoulder and tells Asami “I hope you know what you’re getting into”. She hopes it says everything she wants to. It does.

Su gives them a big hearfelt speech about true love and how happy she is for the both of them, sneaking in one or two or ten hints that she’d be happy to host a wedding at Zaofu.

Korra and Asami haven’t even thought about a wedding, but they both instinctively want to hold it in Republic City.

Korra has a little idea about a wedding in the Spirit World, but she hasn’t told Asami - she’s learned a thing or two about rushing things.

Asami has already arranged for Future Industries to manage without her for another week, which she plans to spend with Korra in the Sato mansion.

Bolin gives the both of them a Earthbender-style hug with the biggest, dorkiest grin on his face, saying that he kind of hoped this would happen and he’s so happy for his friends. He also guesses they’d probably like to be alone for the rest of the evening and would you look at that, Opal seems rather demanding right now. He whispers “Have fun”, making Asami smirk and Korra blush.

Mako gives them both a big long hug, saying that he kind of saw it coming ever since Korra came back and is really happy for them. There is a long moment of mutual understanding, which Wu interrupts by demanding the attention of his bodyguard. Mako obliges, a small smile on his face.

I have a lot more, but right now I really need to write a “Mako and Bolin have a few drinks together” thingamajig.


Yet another late night doodle. 

I was originally planning on drawing Adult!Jinora but decided against it. I dunno,I feel like she gets plenty of love from fans and I hardly see any Ikki fanart and I love her. SHE NEEDS YOUR LOVE GUYZ 

External image

I’m very happy with her outfit. I think it reflects on Ikki’s upbeat and cheery personality. I also think Ikki’s the kind to be influenced by her idols or people she admires,namely Korra which is why I gave her Korra-esque hair ornaments.

I hope you like this! Might do more in the future.

Kuvira is so tragic to me okay.

This poor girl didn’t lose her parents. They flat out just didn't want her. They threw her out when she was 8 years old

Can you imagine… can you even fathom how that must feel? 

No wonder she’s metal bender. She’s gotta be pretty damn refined after that.

So then she ends up on Su’s doorstep but noticing these family dynamics, it doesn’t seem she was ever accepted. She was the outsider of this close-knit, loving family. Did this woman grow up without love?

Baatar Jr. was the best she had. He loved her and she clung to it. You saw how comfortable she was in his arms because he loved her and she needed it.

And now she’s realized all the horrible things she’s done, she’s genuinely sorry, and is willing to accept her punishments, and this woman to took her in, who was probably the closest thing to a mother she ever had, continues to pour salt into her wounds. 

And can we just talk about this for a second? It’s pretty much confirmed at this point that Kuvira was adopted into Su’s family. Su, Kuvira;s mother figure, tried to kill her on multiple occasions. I’m probably gonna make a post about this later, but Kuvira, though she attacked Su back, didn’t really try to kill her. She locked her up when Su broke into her camp, and when they were fighting in Operation Beifong, Kuvira just kicked her off the weapon. 

Kuvira needed Su and she probably just felt really betrayed like nobody wants me nobody loves me. She had Baatar and then she gave him up and now she has nobody and she’s probably guilt-ridden for everything she’s done and I can’t forsee any happiness for this woman’s future and it breaks me. 

I’m so sad for her
