Asami and Korra-  ”Bad Girls” by M.I.A.

It’s completed! A video for the full song. Season-wide spoilers, tons of Asami and Korra badassery. About a month’s work went into this (because I updated it almost every time a new episode came out and then was like rearrange rearrange), so… yep. I can’t do fancy stuff, but I think it ended up fitting together pretty well.

I really hope these two and their friendship develop a lot more next season.

sigh they didn’t it was sad

voting for an AU where Korra came to Republic City when she’s about 13 or 14 and she meets Asami first and they become awesome friends bonding over probending and they meet Bolin and Mako when they’re runnin’ numbers and making bets for the Triple Threats and ahhh
just think of how cute they would be uvu

Oh man! *_*

waitformethistime asked: Apparently there's a new LoK book 3 commercial that aired in Norway. What are you hoping will happen?

ohhhhh boy. There are a lot of things. I’m hoping Lin will actually get character development outside her relationship with Tenzin. I’m hoping Lin and Korra’s realationship will actually develop. I’m hoping Asami will actually get focus and development and important scenes that have nothing to do with love triangles and drama with mako. I’m hoping SHE WILL ACTUALLY CATCH A FUCKING BREAK TOO and experience some degree of happiness. I’m hoping her relationship with Korra will develop and they can get through all their baggage and become supportive friends.

I hope how utterly shitty Mako was to Asami and Korra, ESPECIALLY Asami will be acknowledged (and Korra will realize how much she contributed to that in the first season and feel bad), but I’m hoping Mako’s actual presence will be really fucking minimal. I want Asami to be allowed to deal with the pain of all the loss she’s suffered.

I want complex and supportive female relationships everywhere.

No more Nice Guy tm plots for Bolin. No more sexual assault played for laughs or abuse played for laughs. No more “irrational terrifying girlfriend” stereotypes characters.

Actual presence of Moms. Can we learn more about Asami’s mom? Can the show actually give Pema and Korra’s mom a character arc/backstrory.

Can we actually see the Fire Lord? Can the Earth Queen really play an important role like Bryke indicated? Can female leaders get some spotlight?

No more focus on power struggles between men. No more Korra being jerked around by powerful male authorities and learning she shouldn’t have gone with her instincts and trusted the one that gave her freedom. No more brothers, no more fathers, no more evil waterbending dudes.

A plot that makes sense and doesn’t rely on unexplained deus ex machina.

Let Korra continue to develop as a character and let the majority of the season actually focus on this.

LET BRYKE KEEP THEIR FREAKIN’ PROMISE OF NO MORE ROMANCE. BECAUSE THEY ARE FUCKIN’ TERRIBLE AT IT.

Basically, I have a lot of wants. i highly doubt even a third of them will be fulfilled.

why are all characters with the name mako/to all have dark hair and are really nice and supportive and consider the feelings of their friends all the timeimage

and then there’s this asshole

Good question; she belongs on this list.

As for the anime characters, I recognize Makoto Kino (AKA Sailor Jupiter) and Makoto Tachibana from Free! (and of course the bad idea, although he’s not an anime character), but not the other two.

last two are Ryuko’s friend from Kill la Kill and the main character of Dangan Ronpa.

i hate kill la kill but both these characters are still better than lok mako.

I THINK BRYKE JUST NEEDS TO ADMIT THEY WANT THE SHOW TO BE ABOUT MAKO AT THIS POINT JFC

airyairyquitecontrary:

adventuresofcomicbookgirl:

driving that fuckin’ love triangle into the ground jeeesus

it’s either about the ~irrational women~ Mako has to deal with and now Asami gets to be a clueless damsel Mako must save

and now they’re ruining Bolin too which is great. Since Bolin has a point about Mako being an ass to him, they have to make Bolin conceited and irrational AND APPARENTLY WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE HE’S TOO DUMB TO KNOW WHAT ACTING IS OR WHAT CONSENT IS DESPITE HAVING NEVER DISPLAYED THAT BULLSHIT BEFORE

and like i’m supposed to sympathize w/ mako when he reacts to being rightly called on his bullshit by assaulting bolin i mean. 

this show is a trainwreck why am i watching i don’t know 

My God, I’m glad I’m not.

What the hell are they doing with Bolin? Remember the whole ‘Perfect Man Bolin’ meme from season one because he was so incredibly respectful and considerate and adorable and just a wonderful person with no bullshit about him in any way shape or form?

What is behind these writing decisions? Some kind of head injury?

i think they realized Bolin was a billion times more likeable than Mako and they’re trying to fix that. Have Bolin randomly suddenly make a complete transformation into an asshole to make Mako look better

EXCEPT IT JUST MEANS LITERALLY EVERYONE IS UNLIKEABLE NOW!

EVERYONE!

even Asami is just so wildly ooc i’m in awe

IT’S JUST SO WEIRD

like there’s no way Bryke didn’t hear the criticism the first season got

the main criticism being

-the mako-asami-korra triangle was bullshit

-mako was unlikeable and never got called on his bullshit

-bolin was nothing but a joke

-asami kept having terrible things happen to her and that was literally her character she never got a break

-Korra’s journey wasn’t focused on anough

-nobody seemed like friends

SO WHAT DO THEY DECIDE

-MORE MAKO-ASAMI-KORRA LOVE TRIANGLE SHIT

-MORE MAKO BEING AN ASS YET BEING IN THE ~RIGHT~

-MORE TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPENING TO ASAMI LET’S SEE IF WE CAN COMPLETELY BREAK HER TO THE POINT NOTHING BUT A MAN CAN BAIL HER OUT

- WHO IS KORRA IS THIS EVEN HER SHOW OOPS SHE’S AMNESIAC NOW

-EVERYTHING BOLIN DOES IS A JOKE ESPECIALLY BEING ABUSED AND THEN RANDOMLY FORGETTING ABOUT CONSENT

-EVERYONE IN THIS SHOW IS FIGHTING AND HATES EACH OTHER

jfc

i think they’re doing this to spite the people who dared be critical of the show

because that’s the think you want to do. drive away your fans.

No But Really, Where Is LoK Even Going With All This?

x9dguyx:

Can we just talk about how nearly every character featured in today’s episode had a ridiculous change in character at one point or another? It seemed like one giant Ember Island episode gone wrong.

Asami: Highly intelligent and independent character is suddenly unable to make any decision for herself and is literally just guided through the whole damn episode until she suddenly decides it’d be cool to kiss her ex-boyfriend who just broke up with her good friend? What

Bolin: Highly compassionate character shown to be nothing more than a young guy looking for friendship is seen…
-Rejecting is only living family member in his time of need
-Making sexual advances on a coworker against her clear disapproval
-Disrespecting an entire culture by making a mockery of it
What

Lin: Extremely dedicated police chief shown to be willing to do anything to seek justice rejects the biggest lead Mako has on who is committing these thefts because he’s “a beat cop” and the two officer jerks say he’s wrong? What

Korra: Well she lost her whole damn memory, ‘nuff said there.

And last but certainly least offensively changed,
Varrick: I mean we all saw this “plot twist” coming, but wow. His entire character just gained a depth that I’m hoping I’ll like down the road but that I’m not quite sure I like now.

All in all though, everyone was a mess.
