What are they doing now?

Apparently, moving LoK entirely online so that they can air more Spengbab.

…wat

like…their target demographic is still kinda young kids

most of them won’t go online to watch a show

…I do not understand this

They didn’t promote it for crap.  So the ratings, predictably, tanked.

I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist…but it all seems a bit too convenient.  By which I mean “if it were any fishier, it would swim.”

I really LOVE your blog, everything makes so much sense & logic, & I just get all excited when I see your icon on my dash. <'3 I'm not much of a "hater" with any of the ships. Except Bolin x Eska (& Ginger), but anyway.. I'm not so much "OMG Makkorra is disgusting" as I am a "OMG Bolin *squeeze-hugs him*" after ep 5. I can't get over that even now, & I just keep coming up with more ideas for my AU that replaces all Makkorra stuff with Borra goodness. <'3

Thanks.  :D

And while Makorra never piqued my interest, I don’t think I started actively disliking it until either “The Spirit of Competition” or “The Aftermath,” both of which indicated to me that he brought out a less-than-pleasant side of her and didn’t particularly respect her.  And I wasn’t outright disgusted with it until “Out of the Past,” which is when it started walking all over Asami’s heart when her world was already collapsing around her ears.  (The same episode also soured me on Masami.  In fact, it made me stop ‘shipping Mako altogether).

Borra, however?  Lemme give an anecdote:  Some years ago, I met a guy.  There was an immediate spark on his end, but not on mine.  He accepted that, and we just started hanging out and talking writing and pop culture and so on.

And a few months later?  It was like some switch flicked, and I fell hard for him.  We’re married now.

That’s the sort of potential I see Borra having.  It’d have to be handled very well (especially this late in the game), and I don’t want Opal to get stepped on.  But even so.

Nickelodeon? You are a bad joke.

This is your own damned fault for not promoting Book 3 worth a damn.  I hope you’re aware of that, although I’m sure you’re in denial.

And if you try to twist this fiasco into some nonsense about how brown girls don’t sell shows (as I’ve been suspecting for some time that you might)?  I swear I’ll storm your damned studio.

What flower do you think goes well with Opal personality and color scheme?

lorienmizar:

I know it sounds super random, but I’m doing a drawing and I can’t figure out what will work for her

I know I made a couple of suggestions, but lemme go into it in a bit more detail:

Matilija poppies might seem like an odd choice, seeing as they’re rather a large and showy flower.  But they’ve got delicate frilly petals that flutter in the breeze, a yellow (for airbending) center, and a subtle sweet scent (I gathered from Bolin’s rhapsodizing that Opal canonically wears perfume and/or uses scented soap).

Certain hellebores have neatly-shaped little blossoms the approximate color of Opal’s big green eyes.

Jasmine and honeysuckles have delicate, sweetly-scented flowers (one of my Opal headcanons is that the aforementioned scented soap is jasmine).

I also liked the suggestion of lilies-of-the-valley (or, alternately, snowdrops).

…also, if they actually had the lousy judgment to cancel it, I would be forced to do this.  (Well, except the part where the Steam ‘Ship already scuttled itself.)

Oh, hell, there’s yet another Avatwihard threatening suicide if the rudderless Steam ‘Ship is not refloated.  And this one’s being overt about it rather than just saying that it will kill her.

Y’all know that shit is really not cute, right?  It’s manipulative, and it’s reductive.  Cut it out.

This rumor about episodes being pulled…well, there seems to be evidence against it being the case.

Good.  Because that would be the second time that Nick dropped the ball with this book.  Just saying.

  Reblog if u think the legend of Korra deserves better!!
zaofu:

is this post even real

You heard it here first:  If it turns out that the Red Lotus are not actually trying to kill Korra (for example, if it&#8217;s the concept of the Avatar that they want to tear down), they will officially be anti-villains.  After all, they almost sunk the rudderless Steam &#8216;Ship before it could happen.
And are we not going to talk about how fickle Mako is in regards to the alleged love of his life, or what?

Toph /would/ be a shit mother

I think one reason why people gradually lost hype over Legend of Korra is the way it breaks the illusion of the heroic glory after season 1

Sequels are so tricky because well, usually people don’t want to know what comes after the ending, unless it’s the happy stuff. Korra reveals flaws with characters and the world that reflect our reality. It makes people uncomfortable.

But frankly, I love it.
Season 3 is the best thus far.

Personally, I think Toph’s parenting fails make sense.  She’d have quite a few stressors on her, and is probably trying to avoid the example set by her own parents.

Aang’s (and by extension, Katara’s for apparently not calling him on his crap despite her previously established willingness to do so)?  Not so much.

And yeah, Book 3 is the best thus far.
