Don’t know about others but I’m just very swayed by the finale of Korra’s book 3. It was desperately epic, very bittersweet and immensily beautiful to watch. I’m so proud of what this show has become and what Korra the character has become. That last frame, where Korra despite her being under a lot of emotional and physical turmoil is obviously happy for the flourishing of the things for which she sacrificed herself.. that last frame tells volumes about this story, and I’m so happy because of how mature and raw the story is. I couldn’t wish for a better continuation of ATLA. I think that more than anything, the creators and everyone involved have done justice to what ATLA was, and even though these two are different shows it’s proved (not only in this finale, but other number of times) that The Legend of Korra is undoubtedly able to make us feel what ATLA did: passion.
here’s a maniac laugh for when korra beats those red lotus arses for good
if tenzin dies
he will never give Jinora her master tattoos
Hoping all the Red Lotus die a fucking miserable death
take a moment to realize you have never seen your face in person, just reflections and pictures
some scientists agree that if you saw a clone of yourself, you wouldn’t recognise it as you, because our idea of what we look like is so different from what we actually look like
This gave me anxiety
well you tell that to sarah manning
like as much as i want for rachel to “redeem” (i use the term loosely bc thats not really what i mean but bear me!!!11) herself next season sort of like helena did this season, and then join clone club waltzing like a pro, i really want to see even more of her playing with dyad and then how her dynamics within the corporation ties up with HER intentions. bc up till now we havent been told what are her intentions, we’ve just seen glimpses of it. for instance, why was she so invested in the research for making other clones? was she purely completing the dyad agenda? or does she have personal reasons for wanting the answers from duncan. i think a lot of what she does has to do with the way she was brought up and that maybe she wants a child - and given that she now knows she can’t by design, which certainly crashed her hopes to an extent - so that she can raise them in a way that feels righteous. and that could mean not committing to same errors both duncan and dyad did when they raised her. like, i dont know to what extent being raised self-aware and the loss of mother and father traumatized rachel, but from what we got from season 2, it did traumatize her a lot. and because we know she has a superiority complex and she craves for control (which is constantly robbed from her, to some extents), i could def see her wanting to incorporate the parent figure just to be in control of the situation. if this child were a clone it could even make more sense in the scenario where she both a) has control over the situation and b) wants to fix mistakes made in her upbringing.
of course this is taking things to extremes but i see it as an interesting path to explore within the character.
or we could have clone club party and rachel stepping in waltzing like a pro, no objection.
