I really wanted to draw korra after the last episodes of book 2

Sorry I haven’t updated in the past few weeks. Life has been quite busy so I haven’t had time to sketch anything. I promise to update more often once everything settles down, but I’m not sure when that’s going to be. D:
On the other hand, I now have 639 followers! As thanks, here’s Korra wearing a Northern Water tribe dress. It was inspired by Princess Yue’s outfit when I rewatched A:tLA’s Book 1 season finale the other day. I’m not sure who’s holding her hand to be honest, but I guess my not-so-secret shipping preferences might be showing itself. Oops!
did somebody say Avatar Princess Korra
I recently listened to some guy reviewing ATLA, which was … okayish, but I found myself getting progressively more annoyed as he talked about Azula. He looooved Iroh’s “she’s crazy and needs to go down” and went on a tangent during “The Beach” about how her preoccupation with her mother couldn’t explain much if anything about her development because she was evil even as a small child, obviously she’s just an inherently awful crazy person for no reason.
kind of fun to see my old essay crossing my dash again!
Book 3 buddies (in black & white because my new phone does not like to take photos of screens).
Wow, does this look like it might be an actual conversation happening between my two favorite characters? Or at least a little punching?
Okay, so: this is just going to be Princess Korra on her way to Republic City for the first time, because I’ve been letting a ton of prompts pile up while I worked out the nature of this AU with you and I kind of feel bad about that. If you send another ask, though, I’ll write up the next piece once my ask box isn’t quite so stuffed. ;)
AVATAR PRINCESS KORRA NOW EXISTS IN THE WORLD
and I really loved it! the dynamic with Korra and her cousins, as protégés of one another’s fathers and just family—they’re still definitely themselves, but the friendly relationship makes good sense. And even with just the preparing to go to RC, we get all these little snippets of the changed universe.
and the cliffhanger ending, lolololol
thank you so much!
Korra is probably the most scrutinized character in The Legend of Korra (apart from the fan-favorite Mako) and it’s expected since she’s the main protagonist. As a successor to Aang legacy in both the Avatar universe and the fandom itself there’s a lot of things expected of her. Thus, her characterization and decisions in these past two seasons spurned a variety of reactions from the audience, both positive and negative.
This is an interesting meta essay, and worth reading. (Plus, it quotes my meta as an authority, which doesn’t hurt my opinion of it! ;) )
I’d like to point out in advance that most of the things I feel are worth posting are “but”s or “and”s rather than things I fully agree with… feel free to assume that if I don’t say anything about something, there’s no disagreement here. ^_^;
There’s some great commentary here, though I don’t have much to say—I agree about everything except water!
I’ve been meaning to respond to this one for a while now; I’ve always liked the idea of Korra taking Aang’s place in the war against the Fire Nation, and this is the most interesting (and best written) treatment I’ve found of that theme.
eeeee when I saw this, I gave a little shriek of happiness, heh. Thank you! :) :)
Of course, a lot of that interest has to do with elements that don’t appear in this first chapter—the Yakone-and-family angle, in particular—but there’s still enough here to keep the reader interested. ^_^
So, on to the fic!
I am not actually a friendly reminder blog for every fandom I’m in, I whisper to myself
hey hey mrs reynolds says that mr darcy actually raised wickham, not just paid for his education, RAISED HIM, AT HIS OWN EXPENSE, mr darcy treated wickham like his son, and darcy and wickham both agree he was the favourite so it was even better than that, like a favoured son, and wickham repaid him by seducing his daughter :), oh hey princess fíriel was given to arnor in a political match and then had her claim usurped by her husband, and then rejected anyway and oh yeah then their kingdom got utterly destroyed and her husband disappeared and her son lost his crown, and we have no idea what happened to her ;), did you remember that there is no point in anakin skywalker’s life in which he does not have a master?, the period in which he was railroaded into an ascetic monastic order was the most liberated time of his life, did i miss something, oh yeah, the only person who offers an unqualified apology to korra is a suicidally depressed torture victim turned corrupt politician, lucrezia borgia survives most of the people she cares about, …and is dead by forty
I mean I can go on but
some days I just feel the need to spread the bad news again :) :)
