Remembrance: To be or not to be anti-Mako by SandraLVV
Remembrance: To be or not to be anti-Mako
Ok, people. I know I said I wasn't gonna do this kind of posts, but I needed to take this out of my head.
So, today we watched Legend of Korra Book 4 Episode 8 called 'Remembrance'. We all know each cartoon has an episode full of flashbacks when the series comes near the end and this was ours.
Sorry to Makorrians, but this cartoon was supposed to be KORRAS JOURNEY to become the best Avatar she could be... but half episode was about Mako's failed personal relationships.
I've said a lot of times that I don't hate him, but he needed more character development... I wasn't liking him as much as I wanted. And this episode just came to rub in my face all the things he did that annoyed me.
First he says: "All that changed when I met Korra" but the scene is him passing by her side witthout even looking at her. Wu says that was rude and Mako answers "You know what's rude... interrupting". That's rude, Mako.
Then his telling Wu when he met Asami, Wu is like "You should work on your introductions." and Mako is like "When you have charm like mine, you don't need introductions." What the ACTUAL fuck!
At some point we hear him say: "Hangin out with Asami made things with Korra complicated." What's that suppose to mean? They go out, they kiss... but for Mako that's not dating...  or maybe it was... he doesn't know... interesting... maybe they deleted the scene when Mako says Asami 'Whe should be friends with benefits'... although I'm sure Asami wouldn't agree to that.
Oh, and the next scene when Asami confronts Mako about his feelings for Korra, and he's like "Turns out she was right." ... surprise, suprise. Guess what, Mako? Apparently you're always wrong.
At this point I love Mako's cousin... his telling what most of us where thinking back in the days.
Last part was decent.. he says: "I helped Korra defeat Zaheer, and we did it as friends. She showed me the importance of putting other before myself." and "She continues to inspire me." Positive words... but I still have my doubts about he learning to put others before himself... well, he's protecting Wu, so, that's a step.
Now we are 10 minutes into the episode, practically half of it, talking about about the love triangle. I believe that ironically reflects the truth about the series... half of it was the love triangle and that was the worst part of it.
...
Then we have Korra remembering her fights, thinking that the world doesn't need her, and then comes Asami telling her all the good things she have done and Tenzin talking about how there'll always be an enemy but that she have to learn from them, and that she has grown up so much as a person and as the Avatar.
(Korrasami shipper personal commentary: Did you noticed how Korra says to Asami "You're so sweet." and not "That's sweet." or "How sweet of you.")
Time count: 4 minutes! Are you kidding me! Mako took more than double time just to talk about how he messed up his romantic relationships with Korra and Asami? Preposterous!
...
Then we have Varrick re-writing Bolin's story... funny stuff... that Giant Spirit Bolin cracked me up!
...
So, Bryke has, I think, 4 or 5 episodes to make me change my mind about Mako being just a fool with a pretty face... Oh, and remember when he said he knew how to fly an aircraft because he had dated Asami? How idiotic!

Korrasami Copycat Time (SLVV) by SandraLVV
Korrasami Copycat Time (SLVV)

Copycat Time! Because I'm so nervous about the reunion that I can't make up my mind on what to draw next. So, I just took a bunch of pics from the #girl_love tag on Tumblr and some other places and... "korrasami'd" them. (Yeah, now is a verb... like google. XD)

I take no credit for any of this sketches, though. And I thank the original artist even when I don't know who they are. :S

Korrasami 'Thank you gift - The High Seas by Swani
OMG! This took forever! More than a week looking for a background I could use, plus two whole weeks watching references for outfits and stuff (my respects to costume designers) and almost a week and a half to make the sketch, lineart, color, shadow and details… BUT I DID IT!

THIS is a gift for swani-writes.tumblr.com, based on her Korrasami story ‘The High Seas’. Thanks for all the amazing stories you share with us. And a special mention for Jess, whom I had in mind during the process of making this fantart. Get better, girl. <3

_______________________________________________________


Perseorra and Medusami

  Asami was used to solitude, surrounded by the statues of lost-name heroes so called champions who had tried to slay her. None rival, none deliverer. Sometimes she even wished for one of them to succeed, to finally bring peace to her life of loneliness... but it was just so fun to watch them try.

  Asami’s bifurcated tongue nipped out and caught a scent. It was like no other before... a touch of sweat, a touch of ocean breeze and salt, a touch of sand and mud... and a touch of blood. A warrior, no doubt, someone here to claim her head, she was sure, but yet different. Anyhow, she could use some entertainment tonight.

  She followed the scent just to find the unusual source.

“A woman?” she muttered to herself from behind a column, far away from the girl’s sight.

  The warrior looked unlike previous ones. Not just her gender, but every one of the slayers that had come here were clearly afraid of what they could find. And with all reason, no one has ever leaved. But this girl, this... enemy, looked strong and confident, even mighty. This was going to be a nice statue to watch on those long lonely nights.

  She smiled to herself.

“What brings you here, oh great hero.” Asami talked to the air, letting her voice to echo through the temple.

  The warrior turned all around, not sure of where the voice came from. She was disconcerted... of all the monsters she have defeated before none of them had had such a sweet voice.

“I’m here to claim your head, you monster!” The woman shout, brandishing her blade.

“Monster?” Asami inquire, leaving out a soft and melodic giggle. “I’m not the one looking for things to kill.”

  The sword woman was sure taken aback by the sudden realization. But she was a hero and this was her job.

“Tell me your name, champion, so I could carve it in your grave.”

“I’m Korra, daughter of Tonraq, leader of the southern lands! I’m the protector of people and guardian of peace!”

  Asami couldn’t help but to laugh.

“You don’t fool me, guardian of peace. You’re here for glory, glory that only slaughtering me will give you.”

  Korra turned around again, hearing the voice getting closer and closer. It was dark, and the torches nearby gave her only a couple of feet of clear view.

“Come here, monster, so I can show you glory.” Korra teased.

“I have a name, you know. Well, I used to have one... when I was mortal, like you.”

“What?”

“You think all us ‘monsters’ just pop out the ground? No. I was once the priestess of this temple, but when I refused to surrender my body to the god I served... he turned me into this.”

  Korra saw a shadow moving through the pillars. It looked like a snake, a big one.

“You’re lying.”

“Why would I?” Asami said amused. “You’re not leaving this place alive anyway.”

  Something moved behind Korra, making her turn again.

“Then who are you?” Korra asked to the empty halls. “What’s your name?”

“My name... is Asami. I was the daughter of the richest man on these lands. It was expected from me to serve our god. But when he tried to take me I fought back... and this was the price I paid.”

  Suddenly a female figure walked in front of Korra, although ‘walk’ wasn’t the correct word to describe it. From hips up Korra was sure she had never laid eyes on such a beautiful woman, loose long raven hair, full red lips, perfectly shaped breast... but from hips down the woman had the body of a huge snake that slid smoothly over the ground.

  Korra noticed the creature’s eyes were closed.

“But you killed all those people.” Korra said still in a defensive stand.

“Do you think I looked for that to happen? Do you think I enjoyed it?”

“Then why?”

“At first I couldn’t helped it. I was cursed with eyes that can turn living things into stone.” Asami moved through the pillars, making Korra’s sight to follow her. She approached to one of the worn out statues and continued. “I wanted them to help me... but as soon as my eyes locked on theirs...”

  Asami touched the old rock and it crumbled.

“And the heroes?”

“They came here to kill me! What did you expected me to do?!”

  Korra chuckled softly.

“What’s so funny?”

“You’re a fighter, just like me.” Korra pointed, sheathing her sword.

  Asami identified the sound of the blade being putting back on its scabbard. She turned to face Korra, her eyes still closed.

“You’re not going to try and kill me?”

“Well, all of this makes things a little different. To me looks like you’re the lady in distress. I’m the hero, so I’m supposed to help you.”

“You are a very strange hero, Korra.” Asami said with a smile. “How do you know I’m not lying?”

“I wasn’t supposed to leave this place alive, remember?”

  Both women laughed. The scene was as bizarre as it could get. Korra thought she was going to find a heartless beast and Asami thought a brainless warrior was after her... life sure takes many twist and turns.

“Um... Korra, can I ask you something?”

“Sure.”

“Do you have something to cover my eyes, like a belt or a piece of fabric? It’s becoming really hard for me not to look at you... and I really don’t want to kill you.”

“I wouldn’t want that either.” Korra replied, content. “Here.”

  Korra ripped up one of her sleeves and handed it to Asami. Their skins brushed for a second and Asami felt her cheeks blush a little. She put the blindfold over her eyes.

“You’re... cold.” Korra stated.

“I know. I’m sorry.” Asami answered, embarrassed.

“Don’t be.” Korra felt silent for a moment. “Can I... touch you?” Korra noticed how Asami’s body tensed. “I’m not going to hurt you.”

“I know... it’s just... It’s been so long since...”

  Asami jumped a little when she felt Korra’s hand taking hers. A firm, warm, rough but gentle hand caressed her forearm, up to her shoulder, giving her goose bumps while it kept traveling over her clavicle and to her jaw. She couldn’t help to breathe deeper and heavier at the sensation.

  Korra placed her hand on Asami’s cheek making her leave out a soft sigh. She noticed a little wet mark on the fabric over the creature’s eyes.

  ‘Creature’ became such a rude term for her to use now... she felt so guilty to have called her ‘monster’.

“Korra.” Asami murmured when she felt warm fingers brushing her lips.

“I wish I could have met you before.” Korra declare, still caressing that cold, marbled skin.

“Before I became a monster?” Asami said with a trembling voice.

“Before you lose hope.”

  Asami couldn’t help to fall apart.

  Korra caught her, letting the woman cry over her chest.

“I’m sorry I failed you, Asami.” Korra said, tightening her embrace.

“Deliver me.”

“I can’t.”

“Korra... please... make this all end... please.”

  The great hero of the south felt a lump in her throat.

“If I did that, I’ll be the monster.”

“Please, Korra...”

“No. Don’t ask me to...”

“I’m begging you!”

“No!”

“You will...” Asami whispered before taking a deep breath, “...or you’ll perish.”

  The creature pushed the warrior away and granted such a powerful blow with her tail that Korra was sent flying away, hitting on one of the columns of the temple. She groaned in pain.

“Asami! Stop!”

  She barely dodged another strike, so strong that brought the pillar down, collapsing the ceiling in the area.

  With the dust and most of the torches out, darkness deepened. Korra instinctively wielded her sword.

“Don’t do this! Asami!”

“Asami is no more.” A cold lifeless voice confirmed. “And your story ends here.”

  A dark shadow changed directly to her. Korra shut her eyes and brandished her sword.

  Something hit the floor... then silence.

  Korra opened her eyes, slowly at first... but when she saw the headless body of the one she had wanted to save, the blade crash on the ground and the girl kneeled... defeated.

“I’m sorry... Asami... I’m sorry.”

  She couldn’t hold the tears back anymore. Her blurry sight hardly let her see, but even though, in the blackness around, she was able to see the other woman’s head... blindfold still in place.

  Korra drag herself near it, taking it softly and bringing it closer to her chest. The expression on it was almost peaceful.

“Forgive me.” The so-called-hero pleaded. “I... I promise you...”

  The woman took the blindfold off, revealing a pair of stunning jade eyes. Korra smiled softly at the irony and understood... the beauty of this girl’s eyes was enough to bring down any enemy, entire armies could have surrender to them... even the whole empire.

“I promise you’ll never be alone again.”

   Those eyes glowed like the green, fresh grass of the Elysian Fields. And on its depths, Korra saw a vivacious, young, gorgeous woman... loose long raven hair, full red lips, perfectly shaped breast, lovely jade eyes and a pair of long, toned legs... running toward her with a bright wide smile.

  Asami bounce onto the strong woman’s arms, enjoying the power, the heat. And when she finally fixed eyes with her champion, she could see the clear blue skies in them, quiet and gentle, but passionate and intense, like the ocean itself.

  Without hesitation, the two woman looked for eternity in each other's lips. And with that first and final kiss, they draw into nothingness.


_______________________________THE END.
Ancient Greek Mythical Korrasami AU (SLVV)
Ok, this story started in my head as a comedy, more because of the "Medusami" name that cracks me up every time I read it... but it suddenly turned into something else. I believe I, as Korra, am fighting with the dark part of myself. Call it sadness or depression, whatever it was, it almost forced me to write this. Sorry if it was too intense for you, sorry if you expected something better and I disappointed you. But I'm not sorry to have writen this.

On a side note I just wanted to emphasize how much the legend of Medusa touches me and of course how much I like greek mythology. ;)

Korrasami - ...Is called LOVE (SLVV)
Hi, people!
I just noticed that my sketches had become quite better that before and they take less time to make. :boogie:
So, that means that I might be posting (if my creativity allows it) more and more Korrasami! Which is perfect because we're running out of time with this being the last book!  (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

And I've been working on something for over a week but this last few days I haven't have free time to get it done. But I hope it doesn't take much. Maybe a month? There's a lot to do.

You're forgetting how much in sync they were in the car chase, and how Korra held Asami by the waist when jumping off the train.
This episode was, quite simply, spectacular. :icon34nipahplz:

Even if it was just Bryke pandering to his Korrasami shipping audience and it won't amount to anything canon I still loved it!

Just watched the last episode. You know, I realllly love Avatar, it's a great series and LOK is amazing. But there is one thing which frustrates me a bit. And I wanna talk with someone, and you are a great Avatar Fan, too.
I just watched all episodes of LOA and there is one fact. Aang true fight is to reach his power and there ar... maybe two poeple who are a bit mightier than the avatar. Okay, let's say one.
But in LOK there are soooooo many peple which are "much" mightier than the Avatar. I don't wanna flame, and I know it's important for the story, but as I said, it kinda frustrates me. I mean; Amon was so freakin' imba, that it was kinda unfair. Yeah,we talkes about, that Korra went trough a lot and it makes her stronger, but it seeems only a bt out of ideas to make a new giant enemy with more power than the Avatra. Okay, the last fight; there was a reason why she didn't win.

As I said, don't wanted to flame, just want to leave the words from my heart :XD:

I felt the same way this morning after watching the episode. I believe Bryke is making that on purpose (making Korra look like she's not that mighty).  But when you think about it Aang wasn't the most powerful either, not without the Avatar state and the four-elements-bending advantage. Yes, he was an airbending master at a young age, but so was Jinora, so no Avatar benefit there. I believe not only Ozai and Azula but even Toph was a greater bender than Aang (they fought in the earthbending arena, but that was a show, no real encounter). And Aang had all the team to support him.
   In LOK, the alternative bending styles were a main tool for Bryke to show how much powerful people have become. In book one we saw Lighting as a common resourse for electricity, not as a special technique for the prodigies. Metalbending can be achived by many with a little practice (Bolin says 1 in a 100 but Suyin says he's wrong). Some waterbenders didn't need the full moon to bloodbend. And there's Jinora's astral projection, Zaheer's flying ability, Ghazan and Bolin's lavabending... the world filled up with amazingly skilled people. Even Korra admited it "I'm getting my butt kicked by losers all over the Earth Kingdom" that wasn't just because of the poison. Korra IS NOT the most skilled bender (and Aang wasn't either)... but she's the Avatar, she has a unique resourse... The Avatar State.
   Korra lost the fight against Kuvira because of her own ghost. As a mere bender, Kuvira is better than Korra, no doubt. I believe the main point here is that "The Avatar" is simply a human like anyone else. But right now, Korra's worst enemy is herself and she can't expect to win a war if she doesn't conquest herself first. Also, I think the idea of she needing the help of others is an amazing subplot... it gets clear that you can't wait for the Avatar to keep the balance by her own... is up to everybody and concerns each and every one of them.
   Korra needs help, just like Aang did. Nobody can do everything by itself.
   The real question that 
truly haunts me here is: what does being the Avatar really means?
