It’s interesting to check the Appa tag, and even now, there’s still a lot of people who ask “how are there more sky bison in Korra?”
Yes you’re VERY clever for asking this you clever person you. You’re the ONLY person who has noticed that there are more sky bison and has also thought to ask about it.
IT’S CALLED GOOGLE YOU SHOULD USE IT.
“During San Diego Comic-Con , it was revealed that Avatar Aang had discovered a whole new herd of sky bison. The new subspecies has a few differences; for example: old bison had four transversal stripes plus the last one that lies at the end of the tail, whereas the new species has more stripes that are thinner. The new bison also have brown fur on their ears instead of white.” source
No Amon your name isn’t Noatok. It’s Noabutt.
Because you’re a total butt and a terrible plot twist.
Am I the only one who thinks Korra’s bending is horribly under-developed?
Airbending notwithstanding, shouldn’t Korra have learned how to metalbend, create/bend lightning, and yes EVEN BLOODBEND. I’m sure Katara would have struggled with the ethics of teaching bloodbending, but I think the avatar needs to know every facet of bending in order to be a better avatar, and you can’t fight bloodbending if you don’t know how it works.
It just looks sloppy (like the rest of the bending in the series, Lin Bei Fong & Tenzin excepted of course.)
It’s interesting how Mako gave Korra the side eye and threw a “must be nice” at her when she sheepishly mentions that she’s never needed money & been taken care of her whole life. (for her protection, mind you)
But then he doesn’t bat an eye when taking Hiroshi Sato’s sponsorship money, and living at the Sato mansion and taking full advantage of it.
Just a thing that I noticed.
I don’t see why everyone is freaking out about who Amon is…
…since everyone should know Amon is really Appa in disguise.
You see he just wanted some cabbage, and things got really, really out of hand.
My new favorite headcanon for LinBo is that Lin is reinstated, but she’s back on the beat and Bolin joins the force and is her partner.
BEST BUDDY COP MOVIE EVER.
(and he would help her loosen up and she would teach him sweet metalbending moves and oh god it would be the greatest)

The fuck you lookin’ at?!
YOU ARE A TERRIBLE BOYFRIEND MAKO.
Anonymous asked: Re: Your Makorra post. Lets not forget, why in the hell would fandom want Korra to hook up with a guy that treated his current girlfriend the way he has? Being unfaithful, lying through omission, positively jumping all over her right in front of Asami? That's a pretty shitty track record as far as being a boyfriend goes. But its okay, Asami can be collateral damage, Bolin can watch his brother be a hypocrite, as long as Mako gets his TRU WUV, right?
I was so busy being concerned about Korra not being at her maximum level of awesomeness that I completely forgot about Mako being a total asshole! Way to be Mako! And what’s with Bolin not being all over her? I mean really if you want someone to sweep you off your feet in a protective manner, Bolin is clearly the better option!
Why I don’t like Makorra
- Obvious ship is obvious: I think one of the great things about Kataang was the subtlety involved in its development. And when there was less subtlety involved (say that time Aang kissed Katara on Ember Island) the show wanted nothing to do with it, and addressed it through Katara’s reaction. Makorra is hitting us over the head, and when it’s not pushed on us by secondary characters (“Did you know Korra likes Mako?”) it’s being shoved in our faces in a ridiculous and over-the-top way (“Give her some room!”)
- Girl-on-girl animosity: While Korra and Asami are not BFFs, Asami is kind of her first female friend. And yet instead of either one of them addressing this (which is admittedly awkward) they both ignore it/let it fester. And it becomes this underlying anger/jealousy on Asami’s part which doesn’t leave much room for her character development. Frankly as a female Ava-fan, I don’t watch this show for weak character development, one of the joys of ATLA was how interesting and complex the characters were; in TLOK they all feel a little one-dimensional.
- Basic romance is an easy shortcut: Speaking of lack of character development, can we talk about how easy it is to write a hetero romance fairly effectively? Writing a running, romantic storyline is an easy way to keep people invested in a show. But it’s also uncomplication and frankly, boring
- But ladies love romance: Korra is a pretty groundbreaking character, from her muscles and abilities, to her gender, and her skin color, all while being the lead of a show. This is all pretty amazing, but it loses its significance if the characterization isn’t well done, and I don’t think it is. Sure teenagers fall in love all the time, and I’m not saying Korra should deny all worldly pleasures, but don’t let that be as far as she develops. Don’t let her be just another girl who falls in love with a guy, beause it’s heartbreakingly reductive and does a disservice not just to the amazing character Korra can be but also to the fandom.
NO I DON’T SHIP MAKORRA
AND I NEVER WILL.
BECAUSE FUCK YOU THAT’S WHY.
