Do you guys ever just think about how Korra was a bending prodigy and how she learned to bend 3 elements when she was just a small child, where most Avatars don’t even learn they’re the Avatar until they’re 16?
Do you ever think about how even though she was an amazing bender, she had gone 17 years of her life without EVER airbending?
And then she got ALL OF HER BENDING taken away. But she unlocked her airbending despite this.
Why? BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO SAVE MAKO.
