do you ever want to take a fictional character and hold them and hiss at the world “no you don’t understand this character DON’T TOUCH THEM.”
Saw this on a forum regarding Amon’s back story:
Guys feel free to use this as your new fanon.
Amon was indeed a water bender, but more specifically he was a healer, a prodigy of one. Time and time again he healed the devastation wrought by other benders, but he could only do so much, his healing could only go so far.
It was when [someone very close to him] was mortally injured (by a firebender) that he snapped. He did all he could to heal them but it was futile. He then realised that all this time he had been trying to heal the symptoms, and that what he needed to do was to heal the disease at its source.
That would have been better than a story literally designed to tug at heartstrings thrown into an info dump thirty minutes before the end of the season.
Ok. Am I done? I hope so. I’m ready to Get On With Things.
I’m sorry the first thing my mind went to after seeing that comment from that forum was twisting the plot around so that Korra (or someone like her????) knew the brothers as they were growing up and her element was firebending and she got into a fight with Tarrlok and burnt his face off and then years later Avatar Korra appears and has to confront her past incarnation’s sins when she sees Tarrlok’s burnt face and Amon leading the Equalist movement out for justice (and blood?)
korra, why are you wearing your parka underwater? srsly, clothes are whack. oh well… whatever floats… your boat… or doesn’t OH GOD WAT
YAY BOAT JOKES.
(I thought I reblogged this, but I suppose I was wrong: and you are seriously my favorite artist for this pairing, by the way. Your sketch work is always so light and easy and natural and I love looking at it and aslknasdkasjdiefwvkl;klmsd.)
Underwater kissing is my favorite.
Relevant! (Hey Mercy look at this lol XD)
Hey writers, way to unintentionally write real Unresolved Sexual Tension between Korra and Tarrlok in episode 8 better than what Korra and Mako had in the entire series.
Actually, it’s one of my favourites too!
I see earthquakes and lightning
I see bad times today
(Disclaimer: First of all, I have to apologize for my English. It’s probably not good enough to write a lengthy analysis (I should’ve called it an essay, probably) like this. And I didn’t rewatch LoK to write it, just re-read the transcripts, so I’m probably missing something. But the dynamic between them is just so interesting that I couldn’t resist).
(Everything written in that post is just my interpretation. Contains a few theories/headcanons of my own. More about Korra in that part :).
(And also, this).
At the Air Temple
Later that (or the next) day, Tarrlok visits Air Temple Island. It’s just about time to try to convince Korra to work with him against Amon, especially since it became personal to her. Meanwhile, Tenzin is saying a prayer.
Tenzin: We are grateful for this delicious food, for happiness, for compassion, and…
And, right after he says “compassion”…
Whoa, intriguing analysis.
Very thoughtful about both characters and your commentary on Tarrlok was fascinating, since you admit that he’s not the best of men but he tries (such as with Korra and the invitation to the Task Force incident which only ended badly for him) and that he takes the decent route first before resorting to underhanded measures to get what he wants.
Wants Korra and Asami to be good friends so badly okay.
This is gorgeous. <3
I always longed for this moment to happen in the show but then everything disappointed me. They better get some girl-girl bonding time in season two because i need it in my heart so badly since I feel starved for quality girl/girl friendships in real life. ;____;
