Lost three followers because of my explanation of Mako’s uncalled for actions but I could really care less. Honestly, I don’t ship Mako with anyone anymore. Everyone can get someone better, especially Korra. In conclusion: I am disappointed with Mako’s character and LoK is too much drama right now. fuck it.
I’m not saying that Asami isn’t at fault but in all honesty I’m more mad at Mako than Asami. Mako could have prevented all of that from escalating if he just told Asami that he couldn’t because he just broke up with Korra. Asami should have been stronger and had a mindset of “I can get someone better than the guy who cheated on me” and understand that Mako just broke up with Korra. If Mako had said something then Asami wouldn’t have initiated more than what’s necessary. If he said he just broke up with someone and that he still cares for Korra, I would like to think that Asami would understand and remain as friends but Mako didn’t; instead he continued it - made it progress. Idk It kinda hit something personal and Korra deserved better than be replaced in just a week.
For me, the actions that both Mako and Asami seem off character, judging by what we’ve seen of them so far. Especially Mako. It’s only my opinion, but I think it’s not the characters fault this time but maybe the writers. What do you think?
It is off but that’s the thing, the writers create the character’s development. They create how the characters interact with each other and how they mature or handle situations. The writers are showing a part of Mako and Asami that we (as viewers) didn’t think would be possible - but it is and I think it’s just disappointing. His character wasn’t that bad for the first part of Book 2 but as it progressed, it just didn’t make sense why they would make Asami and Mako get together again. What were they trying to accomplish? I guess I liked them more in book one I suppose…I mean Book 2 is great but the love triangle and all that is unnecessary.
((I’m not even sure about that anymore. A part of me doesn’t want to play as Mako anymore because what he’s doing right now hit something personal with me and it isn’t okay. He said he loved Korra, so why is he just replacing her after a week of breaking up? He doesn’t have the decency to wait for a couple of months before dating someone to show respect and that’s fucked up - I would never do that to a girl and I cannot justify someone’s action when they do something as fucked up as that. Mako showed no respect to Korra’s feelings and that is uncalled for; it is immature and I thought Mako knew better but apparently he doesn’t. How can I write about someone and rp as someone when I can’t justify their actions? Quite honestly, if I want to save some respect for Mako - it’d be better if I stopped roleplaying for a while.
I don’t think I’ll leave tumblr simply because I’ve met wonderful people here and I enjoy editing Legend of Korra but as for roleplaying, I don’t know how I can - I just…Mako’s character development disappoints me right now and he’s being a little shit. I dont know if what I’m saying even makes sense anymore))
I’m just disappointed with Mako’s character now. At first I figured, sure give the guy a break since he’s a teenager - teenagers makes mistakes. What he’s doing now is just beyond my comprehension. Not only does he go back out with the girl that he cheated on but he doesn’t have the decency to wait at least a couple of months prior to dating someone else. Waiting a couple of months would show some respect to his old relationship with Korra but he doesn’t even regard that and just goes back out with Asami after a week. I thought I could play Mako because I can justify his actions but this time, I just cant and I’m sorry. I’m not sure how I’ll play Mako anymore because I am disappointed. It’s just fucked up - simple.
As for Asami, I’m not really blaming her but I would have wanted her to find someone else other than Mako - anyone other than the guy who cheated on her. Going back out with the person that cheated on you makes no sense to me. I thought she would be a stronger character but Book 2 destroyed that image of Asami. I’m just…
As much as I love Legend of Korra, my feelings for Book 2 is completely different and I don’t know anymore.
He looked at his brother incredulously, disbelieving and shocked at the young earth bender’s confession. It made no sense to him. Why would his brother do that when they both know how hard it was to live in the streets? They grew up worrying about their survival, whether they’d have a shelter or food, so why? Why now when they finally have a stable life style? Mako was disappointed, not at his brother - no, never his brother. As a big brother, Mako should have noticed, he should have known. The fire bender should have seen the way Bolin’s cheeks sunk in as the weeks passed by, he should have realized that he hardly ever touched his food; he should have been a better brother.
As disheartened as he was, Mako nevertheless gave a small smile before touching his shoulder and sighing. “I’m glad you told me this and I’m not sure why you’re doing this to yourself,” he reassured calmly, “but this is not healthy for you, Bo - you have to stop.”
He wasn’t sure whether directly telling his brother to stop was a smart way to go, but he couldn’t find any other path other than being straightforward. “I’m not forcing you to suddenly eat how you used to, but we’ll get you healthy again - little by little.”
That I promise you.
A few human Raava concept sketches for the Beginnings AU with Kyonz!
Shortly after Raava begins traveling with Wan, she adopts a human form to better understand the way of the humans. Her initial appearance is older, but she de-ages as she grows weaker from Vaatu’s increasing power.
I did it Mako, I saved the company!
To me, this was the saddest moment in this episode.
Asami was born without bending powers.
Her mother was killed by firebenders.
Her father decided to become an Equalist to avenge her mother, and she had to fight him and put him in jail.
She dated a Firebender, until he broke up with her by cheating on the Avatar.
She’s still friends with both that Firebender and the Avatar.She is around 17 years old like Korra, But she has no one in her life anymore, was thrusted into managing a company, got screwed over by her partner Varrick, and ended up in the middle of a war she never wanted to be a part of.
And through it all, she hasn’t shown a sign of turning dark.
She is single-handedly the most selfless character in the entire series.If Asami becomes a villain or tragic fallen hero in the next season, it would be completely justified, because she was -no, she is- treated like garbage.
