We live in a society where girls are taught they’re suppose to grow up and look like Asami - classy, lady like, elegant, etc. but then you have Korra who is the exact opposite from that. Like me.
If Korra wore modern clothing she’d probably be in sweats and a tank top everyday. But that doesn’t make her any less of a woman than Asami. My greatest fear about being bisexual is that if I choose a girl to be my life long partner, she will probably be a girly girl like Asami, which would automatically give me the title of “butch” in today’s world, and I don’t want that.
I love being a girl. I love feeling girly and feeling beautiful. I don’t identify as a “butch” or “dyke”, I identify as a bisexual female. But I’m not at all girly so people see me as a butch or a dyke (and I’ve been called that multiple times).
But Korra, she’s just like me. She doesn’t wear make up, she doesn’t have a lot of friends, she has a muscular built, she’s not very girly… Yet people still sees her as a woman or girl.
If she ended up with Asami, they wouldn’t see it as a “fem and butch” relationship. They would see it as two females who are together romantically. And that’s basically all I want if I ever get a girlfriend.
And if Korra ends up with Mako, everyone will congratulate him on getting a beautiful girlfriend even if she is muscular and non lady like. No one will think “why is that dyke dating a dude?” And again, that’s basically all I want if I ever get a boyfriend.
Korra isn’t just a character to me. She’s a woman I look up to and strive to be.
Korra ending sorta symbolises the death of my childhood I’m 16 now but I was 8 when I started watching ATLA and now I’m having to say goodbye to the universe I pretended to be part of when I would water bend in the bath or air bend on a windy day it was so magical even to pretend and now I’ll be left with 7 books to represent those 8 years of my life that were made much more enjoyable with Avatar in it
Thank you Bryke
Couple of skecthes while waiting for the 4th Book.^^ I’m honestly too pumped about it to draw anything from it, yet.uwo
But I did get some baby Zuzu (I’ll call her that for now because I don’t want to get any more attached to Honora incase she has a different name) and smiling Korra because I need both badly…
I don’t care whether it’s canon or not, Bumi and Zuko’s daughter so had a little thing at their youth when they were between 10 and 20 in my mind.
And I also freaking love Prince Wu from the promo.
That’s what you get for being hot Asami!
