Looking back at some old pictures…Mom, why did you let me wear some of those outfits in public?! Jordan’s with a skort (remember those??). I know I loved those shoes but come on now.
Anonymous asked: how are you feeling about darkling/alina's future in the next book?
I think it’s going to be painful. I feel like on one hand, Alina and Darkling are kind of meant for each other, but on the other hand the Darkling is set up for a tragic ending. I can see Leigh going either way.
korraman asked: might as well explain a little bit further... I can't even blame Mako for telling Raiko. He had to, and that's okay. But why did his ONLY resort be to just break things off with her? I guess I just didn't get why he had to do that.
Yeah, he definitely made the right choice in telling Raiko. (Korra, there’a s reason Varrick is having YOU get the Fire Nation and not doing it himself.)
This is another example of why I wish Bryke would expand on the thought process behind what the characters do sometimes. We don’t know WHY Mako thought breaking up was what had to happen. Was he just angry and it burst out of him? Or did he just not want to be with her anymore? There’s so many alternatives and we can only speculate.
I assumed it was said more out of a heated impulse, but you’d think Mako would have—after calming down and gaining some clarity—gone after Korra and apologized. A lot of the romance behavior this season didn’t add up.
korraman asked: just a little curious about your opinion on how Korra is more responsible for their break up as such... I agree she blew up at him and she shouldn't have, but isn't it hard being neutral when her family and her entire tribe could be wiped out? As for her pushing Tenzin and her father away, wasn't it mainly because they were hiding things from her and kept her locked up for thirteen years with no say in the matter? Plus, Mako kinda bailed out when things got tough. I dunno... Your thoughts?
It would definitely be tough for Korra to be neutral. I actually don’t blame her for struggling with that. What bothered me was how she thought Mako (and anyone who disagreed with anything she had to say) was against her. Or how Mako was trying to tell her that there was a firebender at the scene, she wanted nothing of it. It is asking a bit to be 100% neutral. It’s not asking much to at least look at evidence that is brought to you by someone you love and someone who is trying to help you. She wouldn’t consider anyone’s opinion but her own, and only those who agreed with her.
I also agreed with her frustration with Tenzin and Tonraq. It was understandable, but I think she overreacted a little. I’d have to go back and re-watch, but from what I remember, her anger was more geared toward people making choices about her life without consulting her. (Granted, when she was a child, she probably didn’t need consulted as much. :P But as she grew up, she definitely should have been consulted. The issue here is…how would she have reacted? Would she have just done things her way? Would she have compromised? I don’t know.)
I find Korra more responsible for what escalated to the break up—I find Mako more responsible for letting it go so easily. Both of them really gave up so easily, and that surprises me. I don’t know if that’s in character or Bryke just wanting to drag out their relationship. :/
