I’m probably not the first person to do this.
I am Korrasami shipper and this is one of the reasons why.
Look at that face. She’s already lost her mother and her father, she’s had her heart broken by Mako and had to save her company from total bankruptcy. This is a woman who went through hell. But now she’s looking at her best friend, dying. And there’s nothing she can do about it. She doesn’t wanna lose someone else she loves again.
Yes, everyone looks saddened by whats happening to Korra but Asami looks broken and helpless. Even Mako looks more well put together than her. And then when Korra is recovering, Asami is the one who’s there pushing her wheelchair and telling her she’s there if she needs to talk or anything.
I’m not a Korrasami shipper because they’re two beautiful and strong women who look good together. I’m a Korrasami shipper because this, right here, is the look you have when you’re about to lose someone you love very deeply. And romantic or non romantic, Korra and Asami are perfect for each other.
For the record, I’m a girl who dates girls. I’m used to a distinct lack of representation in popular media, especially for main characters. When it comes to “shipping” for most of the shows and movies that I watch, it’s certainly fun to route for a same-sex hookup between two characters, but it usually stays just a thought-experiment or wishful thinking.
Back in S1 of Korra, I never really paid any mind to “Korrasami” for just that reason. It seemed firmly in the “crack-shipping” category, and there were officially zero signs that it could ever be more than that. I assumed that if Bryan and Mike wanted have LGBT representation in Korra, it would be through Bumi or Kya, or even some later-introduced secondary character (if at all).
Then. This. Season. Happened. Whether their relationship remains strictly platonic or not doesn’t really concern me. What’s clear is that they have a very deep, intimate relationship, one that is just as meaningful and intense as any romantic relationship. It has been so delightful this year to have watched it be developed and come into its own. There’s mutual respect, love, and trust between them, and their significance in each other’s lives are such that the most poignant and emotionally substantial character moment for Korra this entire season came in a scene between the two. So for me, this “ship,” which started out as nothing more than a wild fantasy in the minds of a few, has become un-tethered and is firmly flying high.
Who wants season 4 already?
One thing I absolutely love about Avatar the last Airbender and Legend of Korra is that they have really proved themselves worthy of some serious cred for going outside of stereotypes and showing us developed characters who are more than their gender, physicality, background, appearance etc.
The Great Unanswered Question:
What the hell happens to every country on the planet that isn’t the US in YA dystopias
OH MY GOD THE TAG
Few time ago I published some artworks of which world I imagine they’ll be in Kingdom Hearts III (And those ones which I wish they’ll be) and someone asked me if I would have done the same thing with Tangled or Brave (by disney pixar) So I answered yes and there it is. Some artwork inspired by Tangled. Hopeling you guys appreciate them ^^
I feel like talking about this because it cracks me up.
That guard right there is Nash, who, as far as I know, stole a uniform and was also spying in the Highland camp at the same time as Riou and Jowy.
He gets stuck guarding the provisions and then these two show up.
So, Nash probably thinks Riou and Jowy are in the army, while they certainly think the same of him. Spies spying on spies. The Highland Army was chock-full of spies and they had absolutely no idea, at least not until Rowd recognizes them.
Which means poor Jillia had her tent invaded by spies seeking shelter twice in one night.

Btw, Kageyama realised what he actually said later, and promptly missed a whole night of sleep…
