i asked this but i have no idea why it’s on anon

I was about 85% sure it was you, since my Masami shipping is mostly a lonely thing in my LOK group, lol. and it’s your fault, anyway :P

ALSO JUST…. …. asami going to the police station and pulling mako into a closet. wow

:D :D :D :D :D

somebody should make that happen

*hint*

masami for that otp thing

ahh my dark horse ship :D

who wakes the other one with kisses: they both do, but Mako most often because 1) he wakes up first and 2) Mako

who cooks for whom: Mako for Asami. She doesn’t know how to cook, and I think he likes to have things he can do for her.

who is the morning person/night person: Mako is a very early morning person, but he can stay up late too—he’s used to keeping odd hours. I think Asami’s more of a night person. Lots of hanging out fiddling with machines in the middle of the night and stuff.

who is the more romantic one: they both are pretty romantic. Asami’s less reserved, I think. Slightly.

who is the top when it comes to sex: lol Asami (ok, they switch it up, but… in aggregate :D)

who would lead in ballroom dancing: it’s easier for Asami to, but they’re both kind of conventional in some ways, so she just whispers instructions to him and discreetly guides him.

who is the more cuddly one: Asami…? they’re both pretty cuddly. haha, that’s most of my answers—they’re really very similar.

who is the one to most likely pick which movie they watch: Asami, though she tries to choose things they’d both like. 

who is the one who would pay for dates: Asami, canon :D

who is the one who would initiate a quickie when working: Asami, haha. Mako is a one-track-mind workaholic.

Overall I’m bothered by the enthusiasm I’m running across for any idea that Mako is responding to Asami’s advances out of something other than returned affection and mutual desire for companionship.

Asami is rich, so I get that people aren’t too inclined to feel bad for her; but a big part of her character since Book 1 is that she is very, very alone. She apparently had no other place to go aside from Air Temple Island once she lost her home (never mind that that was probably out of narrative convenience more than anything). Her mother is dead, she has no siblings, and her last known encounter with her father had him turning on her violently. And of course, she has no significant other.

She says almost exactly as much herself in The Sting. She’s thrown herself into running Future Industries because it’s all she has left of her family - she feels so alone that she is turning to a company for a sense of connection.

And this is the character that people want to be treated to a show of romantic affection from an old boyfriend only if that affection will later be withdrawn and revealed to be largely insincere. Guh.

"converted me to a mako fan" the heart soars on wings of joy

loooooool

it’s not even “arrrrgh your bullshit is frustrating but strangely endearing” but “you are generally making admirable life choices despite the total lack of validation from anyone around you or the fandom FOUR FOR YOU MAKO”

*climbs onto the roof*

MAKO DID NOT CHEAT ON KORRA. MAKO DID NOT GO BEHIND KORRA’S BACK. MAKO DID NOT OWE KORRA A MOURNING PERIOD. ASAMI DID NOT BETRAY KORRA. ASAMI DID NOT VIOLATE THE TERMS OF THEIR FRIENDSHIP. ASAMI HITTING ON A SINGLE GUY SHE LIKES AND FINDS ATTRACTIVE IS NOT MORALLY WRONG. BREAKING UP WITH ONE PERSON AND THEN KISSING A DIFFERENT ONE IS NOT A LOVE TRIANGLE.

*gets off*

Blame anghraine for commenting on my offhand post and encouraging me.

Also please enjoy the terrible gif of Asami putting the moves on Mako’s scarf.

I gladly accept all responsibility ;)

You know what I loved about Asami and Mako this episode?

It was all Asami

She kissed him.  It was her hand on his chest; her hand on his shoulder.  She planned their date.

Asami knows what she wants, and she gets it.

If only she were as good at preventing piracy as she is at getting boys.
