JDS: Before I leave, please allow me to offer a small observation: Korra (the character) broke convention. She was rough around the edges, she was stubborn, and she rubbed some people the wrong way. She was also at times reckless and overly confident, and made little to no apologies for her bombastic behavior. Right or wrong, for better or worse, Korra marched to the beat of her own drummer - and for these reasons, she at times had a hard time finding her place in the world. People didn’t really know what to make of her. Some feared her outspoken behavior and thought she should do more to fit in. As time passed, Korra evolved. She grew as a person and developed a deeper understanding of tolerance and compassion along the way. Eventually she began to rely on those around her for help and came to understand her own shortcomings, which helped her form into a more well-rounded Avatar. She became comfortable with who she was and how she was perceived by others. In the end, the things that turned so many off to her were the very things that would distinguish her from those who came before. I say this because I feel Korra (the production) has followed a very similar path. It has survived a uniquely perilous journey as far as cartoons go and never did quite fit in with the things that came before it. And I truly believe that in the end, much like Korra the character, the show will be celebrated for the chances it took and the things it did differently.

Hey guys💛 so I just want to apologize for the first version of this. Her skin came out a lot paler than it looked when I was coloring it on photoshop and I don’t know why. I had no intention of white washing her.

Your back pressed against the wall of pillows behind you, you stared at your hands as you passed the artifact from one palm to the other through the gaps between your fingers. You weren’t sure why it was such a big deal to the Federation, to the man on whose behalf you performed the robbery, to the fanged, stone-knuckled creatures you stole it from. It didn’t look to be any more special than the average pocket watch it resembled— it was the size of your palm and was made of an iron-like material. Said metal of the round artifact felt rusted and worn from years of neglect and corrosion courtesy of the bi-monthly acid rains that fell upon the industry-oriented, environmentally-unconscious, dingy-brown-skied wasteland of a planet.
You stuck the fingernail of your thumb into the opening along the circumference, careful not to pry it open with fear for the subsequent result. You thought there must be a reason it was so sought after— the Federation wouldn’t send the flagship of the fleet for something unimportant or ineffectual. Hell, you wouldn’t have been beat so mercilessly had the artifact been as ordinary as its appearance.
In order to curb the results of your paranoia, you were actively ignoring any sounds around you. The beeping of the biobed made you anxious and the sounds outside the thin metal door were less than pleasant with an apparent food poisoning epidemic going around the Enterprise— you had no desire to listen to the high-ranking officers you were supposed to admire vomit up everything they’d eaten for the last week, especially when your stomach was already sensitive.
You heard the series of knocks, though, and instantly dropped the artifact into your lap. You then covered yourself with layers of white made up of a white blanket, white sheet, and white comforter— nothing could be seen through that much stark white fabric. You cleared your throat. Your pulse was now too quick and the beeping of the biobed let you know so. “Come in.”
The door slid open with a swish and a smile adorned the face of the man waiting on the other side. It wasn’t the brightest smile, nor was it the biggest— yet it touched his crystalline blue eyes a little and caused the skin beside them to wrinkle faintly. However, because his eyebrows were raised only a fraction of an inch and his posture stayed tense, it didn’t help the spike in your heartbeat. “Cadet.”
It’s mini and tyler’s stream. Okay this literally took me from 12-to 5 in the morning just to find all these. And i just want to say tyler seems more like himself with mini just saying. At 1:34, that’s more friendship goals to me because he’s okay with telling mini personal things and that makes me happy. (And also i’m sorry for the repeats, i’m tired so i didn’t bother to check.) And i also didn’t put those two other videos with this because they kept failing so i had no choice, i really wanted you guys to see this :).
Yoongi in 2015: I hope you learn to not skip meals during the day, that you learn that your existence is never lacking and your music, talents, faith in your members and fans will not go unnoticed. I’m sure this year has been demanding, emotionally and physically, but you’ve showed how caring, ruthless, indifferent and wonderful you continue to grow this year. I hope next year will be even better and you’ll learn to take care of yourself, Yoongi. ♡
