Legend of Korra fan art!
I started this about 2 years ago and it’s finally finished!

To Anghraine: a fic for your birthday. ^_^ It’s a little late, and I’m not going to be able to finish the whole thing tonight (my plan ended up going from “write the scene where they run away” to “write their entire childhood,” whoops!), but I hope you can at least enjoy this much for now.
It’s also a really experimental style, but it seems to make sense for a piece like this.
(I’m using your name for the Bloodbending Bros.’ — and, in this story, Korra’s — mother, by the way. I hope you don’t mind. ;) I’m also going to leave both Korra’s discovery of her bending and Yakone’s realization that his children are benders at similar ages as in canon… you’ll see how that could work when you read it)
Ikkin, thank you! Heh, of course I don’t mind about Sura—I always feel a bit jarred when people give her a different name, lol.
[Back in January, I had a plan to be into “Child of Power” and Chapter 4 of this fic by now… but at least I finished this chapter before the end of your birthday.
…Though even that, to be honest, wouldn’t have worked if you didn’t live on the West Coast. :P]
Hehehehe, thank you! As soon as I got your ask, I was like “WAIT IS SHE….??” So it was a very nice present to come home to :)
Anyway, this chapter puts into motion the real action of the story—Korra meeting Noatak and Tarrlok (which is, quite frankly, the only way I could ever find an Amorra-esque scenario palatable, let alone as interesting as you’ve made it here).
Thanks! I have written other ones, but this is the only one I’m particularly comfortable with, lol—I don’t have to tiptoe around a gajillion issues.
Even aside from that, it’s impressive how many things are going on here at once—I always like a fic that can keep this many balls in the air at once… but I’ll get to that. ^_^
And especially thank you for that, because this one really does take quite a lot of thought and effort to try and work it all together, and I try to make it seem natural, but—it’s nice to have the effort appreciated, heh.
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!
