So, my wife and I are doing our yearly Love Wins Korrasami cosplay (i.e, I wear a pride flag like a toga or cape around my Korra cosplay) at DragonCon 2017 on Friday. We run into a friend of ours and do catch up when this pair of cosplayers step up to ask his friend a question, and I recognize them as Taako and Kraavitz cosplayers.
I squeal with delight and compliment them both, especially digging the raven feathers Kraavitz has woven into her jacket. Kraavitz mentions that its their first anniversary as she and her girlfriend started dating last year. I take her hand in mine, pull her close and say, “It’s our fifth year. Ain’t love awesome?”
She nodded and we both grinned.
Alas, no pictures (too many feels).
But Korra in a pride flag with Asami telling Kravitz with Taako how great it is to be in love is probably the gayest thing in a while, so take that to the queer bank with all the love dollars.
BK: During Aang and Zuko’s heyday, the ability to bend lightning was an incredibly rare skill usually reserved for the inner circles of Fire Nation royalty and high-ranking military officers. Now, in the thick of the Avatar world’s own Industrial Age, we see that this skill is, while not widespread, common enough that it is practiced by blue-collar workers changing up massive batteries in the city’s power plants. This kind of work is incredibly taxing on a person’s chi reserves; that’s why the plant bosses tend to get desperate, strapping young men like Mako to sign up for the grueling task.
