The Makorra(ish) version of a set of fics I wrote, because, idk, that’s really where it kept going. Not a lot of changes in this one, even.
..don’t even ask..
I have no idea why I wanted to draw Korra with her hair down and why I actually wanted to draw something sweet with them..hmm
probably the most appropriate explanation for this- ‘that’s why’don’t blame me, I am just tired.
mako and bolin page 1
“Mako and Bolin’s mother came from the Fire Nation, and their father hailed from the Earth Kingdom”
here’s your validation
yessss. I always pictured it that way and that’s just - really cool! There’s some fanart with Fire Nation!mother and Earth Kingdom!father deep in my likes, somewhere. I’ll have to see if I can find it.
I was hunting down a post of mine and stumbled across actual tags of mine on an actual post:
also there should be something about noatak’s fake story being MAKO’s story, all straightforward with innocent victims and an evil firebender TM, while noatak’s actual story is creepy and kind of sordid and complicated, mako is a tragic damsel, noatak pretends to himself that he’s a knight in shining armour but he’s actually a victim-predator, soulmates?
A quick LoK reminder: Korra kissing Mako is not Mako’s fault whether he “should have expected it” or not. Thank you.
You don’t even have to like Mako to acknowledge that, whoa, one person kissing/touching/anythinging another person against that person’s expressly stated wishes is not their fault.
gokotta - (n) lit. “dawn picnic to hear the first birdsong”; the act of rising early in the morning to go outside to appreciate nature
mako studies traditional firebending forms from korra. (fem!makorra, T)
Mako demands they train at dawn, when the sun spills into the Republic City streets only bare hours after the city has finally gone to sleep. It’s when she feels the best—habit, perhaps, after years of waking and moving, of early-morning work shifts, of poor draws for the probending gym; or maybe it’s instinct that’s fuelled the habit instead, prickles on her freshly-woken mind and twitches in her fingertips that light with a snap. Korra moans, but Mako knows to ignore her until she’s fallen asleep during morning meditation, her head slumped just close enough to Mako’s side that Mako can just feel her breath against her hand.
The breath is what Mako first learned to control when she struggled with her firebending in the beginning. That steady and long breathing makes for more tighter range and better blasts is only intuitive; now, up so close and so often with another firebender, Mako learns to exploit weaknesses in breath, in predicting patterns and movements by a swelling chest. Korra teaches her this, her movements slowed with Mako’s hand pressed between her shoulderblades to feel the rise and fall of her lungs with the contraction of her muscles. Within the week, Mako can taste fire on her tongue with every breath, anticipate the snap and burst of Korra’s own firebending when they spar by the Air Temples.
(They study breath at night, too—this time not slow and controlled but heavy, hot, sparks trailing along their skin. Mako fumbles her hands over Korra’s breasts, and Korra hisses that her hands are hot, burying her own in Mako’s choppily-cut hair and pulling her down closer to open, sloppy kisses in the uneven rhythm of her pants.)
I would definitely have thrown in a few more X Neutrals in there :)
…yeah, why aren’t there any X-Neutrals? o_0 That’s a really weird way of going about it. xD;
Korra characters don’t really fit very well into D&D alignments, anyway. Korra’s definitely aligned with good but has little interest in many of the moral requirements, for one thing. Mako is disciplined, but not particularly lawful (though he might become more lawful in Book 2 due to being a cop). Lin is a stickler for the law until it conflicts with her desire to protect the city, and then goes vigilante; she’s not neutral so much as she’s all-in one way or the other depending. Tarrlok being Lawful is just kind of odd — he acts within the system but doesn’t seem all that interested in law for its own ends — and he’s somewhere between Neutral and Evil on the other end but doesn’t really work all that well in either category. I don’t even know what to do with Amon… Neutral Evil, maybe…? He certainly doesn’t seem lawful.
Well, I think the original alignment system was intended to account for that kind of ambiguity rather than being completely absolute - it’s totally possible to have, say, a Chaotic Evil character in a D&D game who is aligned with (i.e. associated with, on the team of) the “good” side, or a Lawful Good character who’s torn between the demands of whatever system they adhere to and their conscience, or someone who switches alignments over time, etc etc. It’s kind of a spectrum anyway. I’ve always liked it better than, say, Hogwarts Sorting or whatnot because it’s more, idk, negotiable.
Personally, I’d probably go:
rule 63 makorra
Like pretty much every other thing I write, this is spinning a bit out of control. Sooo, I accidentally lied yesterday; I didn’t get anywhere near where I meant to and it’s still pre-Korrlok. It’s still coming, though, even if it’s knocking out my other prompts. >_<
