Hi there, I'm Rachel. I'm 22. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and math and I'm hella nerdy. I'm probably the biggest Avatar fan you will ever meet. I blog about my life, Avatar, Dragonlance, books, Jewish things, vegetarian things, and super cute animals (especially bunnies!) I love making new friends, so please message me if you want to talk! ^_^

I haven’t seen anyone comment on this yet…did anyone notice this brief clip?

Someone is walking up a volcano, yes, but it looks like this person is also carrying someone on their back:

The quality isn’t high enough on the video to tell for sure, but I’m not sure what to make of this. My first thought during this scene jumped to the place where Avatar Roku died, but I’m not sure how it’s connected. Thoughts?

So there’s something from the trailer that I’m trying to figure out, and that’s if Korra actually does actually heal completely. I mean she certainly appears to be up and walking but like part of me is wondering how many of those scenes could be taking place in the Spirit World. Like, people can walk between the two worlds, right? So could she like, project herself from the wheelchair into the Spirit World and then come back through? Idk, just a random thought.

OMFG so that last gif post made me realize something: if Korra is going into the swamp, then we have the potential for visions of the past/the Gaang in other words I AM NOT READY aglkfadgja

avatarparallels:

Aang: Time is an illusion…so, it’s…someone I will meet?

Korra: I can’t believe it…Toph?

Also:

TOPH?!?!?!?!??!?!???!!!!

makos-lightningrod:

I can’t even fathom the idea of the ultimate fight between Korra and her biggest adversary - herself.

korraspirit:

Zuko and his daughter!

It’s Honora!
