I’ll love you for a thousand more
Headcanon: During this scene, somewhere inside Korra’s Avatar memories, Wan was going crazy.
Concilliabule - A secret meeting of people who are hatching a plot.
"Korra, I’m so glad to hear that you’re agreeing with me on this," Tarrlok said, a sauve smile plastered onto his lips.
"I only want to take down Amon," Korra retorted. "And you’re only a means to an end, don’t forget that, Councilman."
"Of course." Tarrlok muttered, pushing open the door to a secret compartment in the City Hall.
"I’m glad we drew up this truce," Korra went on, seemingly not noticing Tarrlok’s irritation. "If we work together, we stand a better chance of disabling Amon."
"I’ll have you know that I was the first to propose us working together in the first place," Tarrlok grunted. "Or have you forgotten, Avatar?"
Korra’s eyes flashed dangerously.
"We don’t have any more time for idle chatter,” she said, all business. She sat down at the table, beckoning Tarrlok to follow suit. “Your task force has done a good job tracking down Amon - does he have any weaknesses we can exploit?”
"I don’t know, Avatar. I think the best way to remove him from power would be to lure him into a false sense of security within the city…"
"And then we can track his movements, slip into one of his gatherings, and spring a trap!" Korra added, her eyes glowing with excitement.
Tarrlok found himself smiling at her.
"I like the way you think, Avatar Korra."
Look guys it’s my OTP.
Hang on now, why are people hating on Korra after the finale? I’m talking about the character, not the show itself because god knows there was still plenty of fucked up stuff there. But Korra herself? She was the best she’s ever been. I actually sincerely LIKED her, and it’s been a while since I could say that. She learned! She grew! She dealt with the fact that she has been letting her identity as the Avatar define her worth and learned the value of herself as just Korra! She made decisions herself that broke with past traditions because she had actually thought about it and felt it was right! She realized she was in an unhealthy relationship and ended it! She was the hero of her own story!
There were plenty of problems in the last few episodes, but Korra was fantastic. I don’t get why she’s still getting bashed after all that triumph.
Hear to the freakin’ hear. I spent most of Book 1 being disappointed with Korra, and most of Book 2 being disappointed with her circumstances. The show as a whole has been on an upswing from “Beginnings” on out. and her character growth is a significant part of that.
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HOW TENZIN IS FEELING RIGHT NOW
HE DIDN’T WANT JINORA TO GO IN THE FIRST PLACE AND NOW THERE’S A CHANCE HIS FIRST BORN CHILD ISN’T GOING TO RETURN
I just hit 3k followers recently, and I’d just like to say thanks so much to all who’ve supported me and liking my artwork~♥ ya’ll are super rad! (❁´◡`❁)
I took a shot at semi-realism, so here’s a Korra/Raava thing~ hope you guys like it!
"Are you all right, Korra?" Tenzin’s voice said.
Korra shook her head, trying to ignore the tears pooling in her eyes. Regret flooded her entire body. She sighed, and the motion felt as if she’d had the wind knocked out of her.
"I killed him," she said, her voice sounding tiny. She pulled her legs up to her chest, burying her face into them. "I killed him and it’s all my fault." Her voice was muffled.
"Korra, don’t blame yourself for this…" Tenzin tried to comfort, but Korra only turned away from him. With a sigh, Tenzin got to his feet. The Avatar heard his footsteps receding into the distance. She raised her head from her knees, staring at the bloodred sky of evening.
With a shudder, she remembered seeing the bodies swept ashore by the waves. They’d been barely recognisable. The first man that she’d come across - his coat was blue, she’d noted dimly - seemingly had no face, because he’d borne the brunt of the explosion.
Korra knew who they were. They were Tarrlok, the (former) councilman of Republic City, and his brother Amon (Noatak), the man she’d exposed as the leader of the Equalist revolution.
This is my fault.
The thought rang through her head like a bell as she fell to the ground next to the man in the blue coat, reaching out to place her hands on his charred shoulders.
Tears blurred her vision. Her mind cast up to her Tarrlok bloodbending her, Tarrlok imprisoning her in a box, as if she was some little plaything of his, to take out and fondle per his choosing, realising the warped esteem and self-loathing inherent in his nature, knowing that he was hurting… and she? She’d never cared.
His actions, at times, had reminded her of those of a lover, but she’d shrugged them off as her mind playing tricks on her. Mako is better for me, anyway, she kept telling herself, even though we fight a lot.
And now, here she was, faced with the knowledge that Tarrlok had condemned himself. He’d had no hope. He’d had nothing.
Korra covered her eyes, weeping.
I killed him.
The sentence rolled through her like a juggernaut of pain… but it was a pain worse than the stings of physical injury, because this pain brimmed with remorse. It hurt like fire on her bones, but Korra accepted it. She should pay some amount of the price for the crime of falling to save a man who had only needed love.
Korra’s showing off again =u=
I love moni’s art <3
First of all, where is she staying while in Republic City? By herself at Tenzin’s place? At Mako’s place? In Asami’s mansion? (I’m guessing Tenzin’s house. It’s a children’s show; we can’t show Makorra shacking up.)
Now moving on to where everyone thinks she is. I’m guessing that Iroh II thinks Korra is headed to the Fire Nation. Maybe Mako thinks this as well because he hasn’t seen her around Republic City for a few days. Bolin knows of the breakup and assumes Korra is avoiding Mako and him by association (or he’s become so wrapped up in his ego that he hasn’t even noticed Korra’s not around). Asami doesn’t see Korra too regularly and assumes Korra has been doing Avatar stuff.
These all seem like plausible explanations, yet I am unsatisfied. This just makes me feel like the Korra Krew is not a cohesive unit (this is the second time a member has disappeared and no one shows concern). I know they all have a lot going on, but Korra’s literally lost and no one has noticed yet. How am I supposed to believe any of these people are Korra’s best friends?
And what’s going on with Naga? Is Bolin still taking care of her? Does Mako think Korra would leave Naga behind?
I dunno, it’s these little details that make it harder for me to enjoy the show.
