otp: korra and i are perfect for each other

“Here it is! The first page of the fan made comic collaboration between me (HydrogenHuman) and Drakyx.

Today is my birthday, and I wanted to share with all of you the first page of this awesome project. Currently we do not have a scheduled time to release each page, but rest assured you will see more soon!

I also wanted to mention that the title for this fan comic is “Discovery”. It takes place right after the final scene in the LoK finale, and follows Korra & Asami on their spirit world vacation.

During this vacation they will discover more about the spirit world, and they will discover more about each other. This is a SFW comic, and as I mentioned in a previous comment I have done my best to make this comic feel “as canon as possible”.

okAY BUT UPON ARRIVING AT THE SPIRIT WORLD ASAMI IS ASTONISHED AND LOOKING AT EVERYTHING BUT KORRAS ALREADY BEEN HER SO SHE JUST ENDS UP LOOKING AT ASAMI LIKE “WOW AM I LUCKY” AND ASAMI TURNS AROUND AND THEYRE BOTH SUPER CLOSE TO EACH OTHER AND BOTH THEIR HEARTS ARE RACING AND ITS A BIG WILL-THEY-WONT-THEY MOMENT AND THEN THIS LOUD SPIRIT JUST HAS TO BURST IN ANDS LIKE “HEY KORRA WHOS YOUR FRIEEEND?!?!”

anonymous asked:

What is it about Makorra that you love so much?I didnt like Mako so much cause of his personality in the first couple of seasons, he seemed selfish to me for going after Asami & Korra. What justifies Mako being a better person now?I find it really hard for them to get together again.Would you be content if they found different people instead?I just feel like Korra needs someone more supportive and not so mad.He gets mad over a lot of things even when Korra has more problems than him.¯\_(o_o;)_/¯

idk it’s hard for me to pick out exactly why i love makorra but here’s a start

  • my two ultimate faves of the series. it’s like a reeses cup of otp
  • i’ve had my fair share of barely-there and reaching ships so it’s fun to have a pairing supported by canon
  • opposing elements, wildly different upbringings, impulsiveness vs. voice of reason… opposite in many ways but ultimately complement each other and make a great team
  • their relationship is not perfect but it’s way more interesting to watch than a constant honeymoon phase (the 3 year timeskip REALLY fucked things up so i’m excited to see that brought up again in book 4)
  • they care about each other and love each other even if they’re not romantically involved
  • while not necessary to complete their character arcs, endgame makorra is a great way to show the overarching theme of balance. both mako and korra had issues with balancing their role/job and their relationship during book 2 and there were communication and dependency issues all around. BUT if they both find balance in their own lives first, then and only then will they be ready to be in a relationship again and not have it consume their lives

as for mako being a better person…. a lot of people are still hung up on book 1 stuff but there has been a lot of development for most of the characters since then. the love triangle is o v e r. the writers are over it, the characters are over it and loose ends were tied in book 3. personally i didn’t mind the book 1 triangle. was it perfect? no. but i think it created good conflict that was relevant to characterization, particularly mako’s (re: conflict avoidance).

and lastly, no, i wouldn’t be satisfied if they ended up with other people (plus 6 episodes left….where is the time). i think i could handle a 100% ship ambiguous ending to the series but i doubt that will happen. there’s subtle ways to show a pairing is endgame without it being the focus of the finale and it’s definitely something i think the writers can pull off.
