Sozin's Comet vs. Harmonic Convergence Parallel.

"My mission will always be to use Raava’s light spirit to guide the world toward peace and balance. Harmonic convergence has caused a shift in the planet’s energy. I can feel it. Things will never be the same again. We are entering a new age."
I love how Raava bears Korra up to re-bond at the end of the Harmonic Convergence, because it’s such a different scene that Wan’s initial bonding.
Wan reached out and touched the portal with Raava inside of him as a last-minute act of desperation, because it was the only way he could think of to save Raava’s dying light.
With Korra, though. the bond is made between equals — Raava is no longer small enough to fit in a teacup and barely able to move on her own strength, but a being of great power, and they bond not through passive possession but through physical union.
Plus, I like to think that holding Korra close within the coils of her tail is Raava’s way of embracing someone. =D Raava cares for Korra a lot and still wants to be bonded forever, even ten thousand years after she bonded with Wan.
I’ve been waiting for this gifset!
IS NOBODY GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW LIN MOTHERFUCKING BEIFONG JUMPED OFF A GODDAMN AIRPLANE WHILE THE PRESIDENT OF REPUBLIC CITY CLUTCHED ONTO HER FOR DEAR LIFE
it’s Spider-Lin and Maraiko Jane Watson.
For example, this is the best quality I could get.
I have to be able to do better than that, right? I just can’t figure out the settings to do it.

"Jinora was the real hero."
Okay, kids, I love Jinora above all the other characters, but it’s not a contest between who saved the world this time around. Jinora helped. Korra was the main body of it (quite literally, in fact), but Jinora was that link that helped to protect her from Vaatunalaq’s corrupting power. Jinora was the “pure” aspect—but her light was only available because of Korra’s prior actions. Jinora was the symbol of all Korra’s past deeds coming back to aid her, just like the phoenix-dragon saving Korra a few episodes prior was symbolic of that.
Korra didn’t HAVE to save Jinora before, remember. She chose to. And that was a weakness. The fandom branded it a mistake in many regards, and it was, really, a mistake…but from this mistake came the key to victory. Because Korra chose to open the other portal and save Jinora’s soul, Jinora was able to obtain the power to stop Vaatunalaq and rescue Korra. Then Korra was able to save everything. Thereby proving ONCE AGAIN that just because you make a mistake doesn’t mean that you’re not going to find a bright spot later. Doing the right thing may not show itself as the best choice at the time, but it can often come back to help you later.
Jinora’s spiritual connections allowed her to be Korra’s guide into the Spirit World, but it also left her vulnerable to becoming a pawn. However, because of that vulnerability, she was able to position herself in such a way that she could help Korra out. It’s really tight writing, but goshdarnit, it works. Jinora and Korra saved the world together.
But Korra is still the hero and the protagonist, and the one who had the most influence on the developments of the finale. And that’s why this time around it works—this is why the show is called The Legend of Korra. She couldn’t do it alone, but it was because she worked so hard to protect everyone and made so many allies that she was able to do it.
Ok so am I the only one who noticed that because Bumi took the water tribe guards uniform they are EXACTLY dressed as the Gaang?
OW MY HEART
Everybody’s posting videos of scenes from the Legend of Korra finale with Attack on Titan music, so I figured I’d be a rebel and go out of my way to find something vastly more appropriate.
