I won’t let you close enough to hurt me, No, I won’t rescue you to just desert me.
Korra cosplayers at Expo 2012 (x)
The Asami cosplayer is perfect.
If I’m remembering correctly, he actually singed his hair/eyebrows due to some malfunction. Still looks awesome!
All of the awards!
Dude, what was the point of Mako and Asami even being together in the first place? Why couldn’t she have been introduced as an independent character outside of a relationship? Seriously, their relationship had no point except to provide forced drama for a really boring and irritating love triangle.
Seriously though. Instead of spending 85% of her screentime making kissy faces and then sad faces at Mako they could have explored her relationship with her father and what it was like to join a group of benders in a fight against an anti-bender revolution.
I mean, to be fair, the relationship between Asami and Mako was important to the plot to a certain extent, but I agree that there was definitely too much screen time for it considering how short the series was.
i would like to take a moment to revel in glory of my queen, asami sato.
mako in season 2
The Finale was AMAZEBALLS IN NINE THOUSAND WAYS
But oh god the romance is so awkward I’M GONNA DIE
“Mmm, this is the best tasting street gruel I’ve ever had! Seriously!”
Alright, now that all my Makorra shipper feelings are out of the way, I want to get to what is really important to me in these clips.
The brothers and by extension the living conditions of the people underground.
Now most of you, might look at this part and say “Oh Bolin you’re so precious.” “Oh Bolin, you’re so funny!”
No. This…this I believe that this is the least comical thing he’s said since episode four. Do any of you remember where the fabulous bending brothers were before they were fabulous? Right where Gommu is:
On the streets.
In fact I think that this year is the first year which they were not on the streets, if my assumption is correct then this scene is not unfamiliar to them in the least bit. I would be so impressed with Bryke if it was the bro’s who led the krew down here because that is where they used to live. I would even applaud them for this because it would be the only consistency the brothers have. Of course because I say this it probably wont happen and Gommu probably finds them shortly after episode 10’s ending and will be turned into a ”wtf GOMMU WHERE’D YOU COME FROM LOL” comedy scene…but wouldn’t it be nice?
Now lets look back at this quote. This is Bolin being polite of course, but there is such a layer of depth underneath it. They lived on the streets for most of their lives, meaning they probably had to eat food like this day in and day out with maybe some stale bread on good days. This isn’t just Bolin cracking a joke, this is him telling a bit of their story. He is being sincere. He continues to eat this while Asami throws it up because he knows.
He knows how little food there is to spare in the real world, and he would never in a million years pass it up. Mako probably taught him if he wanted to survive then that was what they had to eat so he did. That’s just how their life was. Heck even Pabu knows better, because he was used to it too!
I understand Asami had a cushy life with fancy chefs and in no way is this lifestyle wrong. But that sort of attitude is not a luxury Bolin or Mako can afford they never could. So of course they are going to continue eating, they knew what it was the second they sat down. They knew what they had to do to survive then and just because they lived a better life for a year doesn’t mean they threw their survival skills to the wind, they just adapted, and now they’re adapting back.
I really hope this is what Bryke had in mind when writing this down, and that I’m not looking too much into this. Because this little scene, though small and perhaps insignificant to shipping is important to me and all bromotional fans out there.
Long live the bro’s development and lifestyle.
Long live the bromotions.
OH MY GOD
Sorry, guys. I wish I had something more interesting to post. Some days I’m just a guy who is behind on his work. Nothing clever to say, nothing interesting to report. Well, I’m behind on my work everyday, but anyway… Digging through the archives, I found this rough I did for Asami in her gown for the gala in episode 104.
Yes: She has a similar look to that of Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Yes: I think Lust is an awesome character and character design.
No: I didn’t base Asami’s design on Lust, as I didn’t watch that series until a full year after I did Asami’s design. I know this because I didn’t get a Netflix account until last year, and I designed Asami two years ago. But if it were, I would gladly own up to it. I’m not only behind on my work, but also my TV viewing.
Yes: Asami’s design was my idea of a Hollywood Golden Age actress in the Avatar world. Her hair was inspired by Rita Hayworth, not Lust.
Yes: I did
stealborrow Lust’s lipstick color for Asami. That much is true.
Yes: I’ve been meaning to order that figurine of Lust as a desk buddy.
Another cosplay option? Maybe?
If only I had time to actually make something. D:
Mako, don’t blame Bolin because you weren’t man enough to tell her yourself. D:<
