Well, from what we see in the show, spirit energy in large concentrations can tear open holes in the spirit world. And we know that distances in the spirit world don't necessarily correspond to distances in the physical world.

Auroras are not "water that interacts with fire." They're plasma in the upper atmosphere. A case could be made that aurora bending could be a speciality bending of fire or air. Rainbow bending would have to be a speciality bending of water since there isn't really light bending in the series.

>>36880653
The closest Western equivalent to Avatar-like spirits is faeries. It's never really explained where they come from, in Avatar or pagan myth, other than they exist. If explained at all, it's more of a cosmological origin myth, like "god did it," "it's always been there," or "an energy source created by all living things that binds the galaxy together." It's one of those fundamental truths/mysteries you are just expected to accept rather than break open to understand. "He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom."

The best two points I can say for S3 is Asami being the one to guard Korra's body while she was in the spirit world in Zhao Fu, which is a direct call back to Katara doing the same thing at the North Pole, and the ending scene with Asami being with her and offering to talk or anything.

As for S4 we got the fact that Korra only wrote to Asami, Mako calling the two out on this fact and asking what was going on between them, as well as the last minute or so of the finale.

Nah, go back and rewatch it. They were dropping hints all damn season, with increasing intensity (peaking at the point where we transition directly from a series of flashbacks about Mako's love life to one of the women he dated calling the other "so sweet").

Don't get me wrong, for the longest time I was pretty well on board the "They're probably just friends" train, but sooner or later I realized that if Asami had a cock there'd be no question that they were setting up a romance. What'd be an unreasonable conclusion in reality is fair game in a story, which is a thing that has things like narrative framing and foreshadowing and shit.

Dude, this is a cartoon show about a bunch of teenagers going on adventures. You can't print a coming-of-age story in modern media, of any kind, without dating being a part of it. Certainly not on cable TV.

Nobody flipped their shit when Korra started dating Mako (or, if they did, it was for different reasons entirely). It would've been equally cool to have Korra not start dating again, don't get me wrong, but either way it's a step out of the "Which boy will she end up with" mold that any sane viewer expected from Day 1.

Yeah, this is ultimately the problem with that ending. It's not about having character romance, it's not about homosexuality- it's simply that it's tacked on and that's bad for a number of reasons.

Throwing a romantic reveal at the very end with no real lead up - and no, two characters writing letters to each other and talking therapeutically over their various experiences with no signs of physical attraction does not count as a romantic lead-up - is bad writing- and for what? Buzz? Political correctness? A need to fill some expected romance quota?

And not only is it forced, it's not as much of a favor to the gay community as the writers probably intended either. Throwing in a sudden lesbian reveal at the very end of a series isn't much better than when JK Rowling suddenly decided to declare Dumbledore as gay despite his sexuality having never been important and the story being long over. It wasn't an organic development of the character and as such Dumbledore didn't so much become a character who was gay as much as a character defined by being gay. In a similar way Korrasami actually undercuts the characters as three-dimensional individuals. It's both using homosexuality - and by extent all the shit people with non-standard sexual orientations have been through - as a shallow way to add drama to a character and using poor characterization to as a quick and lazy way to show some sort of solidarity with the gay community like they're babies needing to be thrown a bottle.

> it's a step out of the "Which boy will she end up with"

By stepping it up to 'which person will she end up with' which isn't much better. Which is another criticism I have of the ending, it severely undercuts the core themes of LoK and Korra's development as an individual.

The major theme of LoK ended up being - and I think for this reason the show ended up being a lot better and more interesting than a lot of naysayers gave it credit for - was how the inevitability of change affects the world, even one with fantastic elements, and how people are forced to deal with it- in this case, how Korra must come to grips with her place as the Avatar in a world where, much like our own in the early 20th century, divisions between class (represented in this by benders versus non-benders), industry versus spirituality and tradition versus social evolution bring into question the place that a figure representing such ancient institutions and ideals now has. And having Korra find a sort of balance by opening up a new spirit portal in the middle of the world's core metropolis then retreat into it while the world rebuilds on an industrial level until when and if she might be needed again is a solid way to bring a close to this story. Having Asami travel with her certainly isn't a problem either as she's gone through her own journeys and shitstorms and it makes sense that she would want to seek a respite as well. But as soon as they throw in the suggestion of (unearned) romantic feelings betweens the two the scene suddenly becomes about a romance that has no real place in the story and overshadows the meaning of everything that's happening there both for the characters themselves and for the entire story of this incarnation of the Avatar.

Interesting idea. I'm wondering if you could use such a portal to not only easily travel between the spirit and material worlds but also to expedite travel in the latter via travel in the former. Does the spirit world effectively mirror the material one in size and relative locations - would traveling between the northern and southern portal be as long of a journey in the spirit world as the material one - or can you exploit it's supernatural properties to shorten the trip somehow like in the Warp? I actually don't know how the Warp works, that's just what I assume.

Aang's era was a Far East version of early Renaissance where opportunism overcomes the ancient lore and society isn't taken as existence itself but shaped and directed by political movements on a global scale.

Korra's era is an early industrialized age. Technology and industry have become powerful, mass media and propaganda are central elements. Urbanification has set in and a non agrarian worker class leads to consumerism.

The next iteration should be a semblance of the Atomic Age. Spirit Vines could be at the core of Megawatt reactors and doomsday bombs. Giant mecha is already established, and how the technology can harm the connection to the Spirit World. So the scenario should start with the permanent standoff between two desperate super powers fighting proxy wars while establishing layers and layers of confidentiality and morally dubious projects exploring control, espionage, and warfare without any restriction.

Implied to some degree to our modern sensibilities, but show the same stuff to someone living 50 years ago (or 50 years in the future), and they'll actually be shocked that you think that two people of the same gender who are good friends would have sexual feelings towards each other.

I think you misunderstood me, my criticism in the part you quoted has nothing to do with negative feelings towards homosexuality or belief in some sort of conspiracy to push homosexuality (I did suggest the possibility that the ending was done out of showing some sort of political correctness or solidarity with the gay community but I didn't mean to imply that there this represented some sort of subversive agenda or anything but a well-meaning attempt to display equality; furthermore, I was only suggesting such a mindset by the writers as one possibility for why they threw in something so, imo, unnecessary and undercutting to the rest of the ending and the series as a whole) but rather somewhat of the opposite. I feel that the way they just threw out the implication of Korrasami, for whatever reason they included it, could actually be considered somewhat insulting towards real-life homosexuals as they didn't put the groundwork down of integrating that trait with the overall characters organically - say, exploring how being homosexual might affect the character in both in how the world views them and how they in turn respond to the word - but rather just made them gay for [insert reason] and made being gay look like something two-dimensional that defines a character rather than just one of many facets that makes them a complex and multi-layered human being like any other.

In any case, it's a moot point. It's a canon fact that they use blasting jelly as their primary explosive in Last Airbender, and I recall that there are in fact high-yield modern plastic-type explosives available (used by both Varrick and the Red Lotus).

Gunpowder seems outmoded, and I would also imagine that guns would have to be made of platinum, or else they would be too unreliable. Even the tiniest bending on a gun would render it extremely dangerous to the user.

No, they're really not. We saw very little of any sort of relationship develop further between them between when they both made the final decision to cut ties with Mako's dick and came to terms with the fact that they'd both been on it at one point and that it didn't have to stand in the way of their friendship and when they're suddenly looking into each others eyes in a pretty clearly romantic fashion at the series' end. The fact that Asami was the only member of Team Avatar Korra really wrote too means little when the other two members consist of an emotional retard and an actual (albeit lovable) retard and them talking about their boy problems is more easily explained by their shared experience with the same (emotionally retarded) boy than a sudden joint realization that maybe the dick isn't for them. They're very much depicted as close friends from the point that they come to terms with the weird Mako situation to the point when they're very abruptly implied to be much more.

>>36899136
>>36899255
>>36899387

really hit it on the head. Affection, especially between women, shouldn't automatically equate to romantic feelings. That's certainly not to say there's any reason to think the -aren't- gay either - I'd argue Asami very much could be although I think Korra is bisexual at most - but a character having sexual orientation of any kind is not a reason in itself to throw in a relationship. As I've said earlier, I think the romantic implication for Korra, regardless of who they were for, very much undercut the rest of the final scene which was otherwise a fitting end to the LoK story. The whole theme of the show has very much been Korra's journey to find her place as the Avatar in a brave new world and having her suddenly falling into a romantic relationship at the end per some unspoken quota of modern storytelling is thematically inappropriate.

To be fair, the reproductive drive is pretty significant as we'd go extinct without it. As a result, most people want sex on one level or another. Sexual attraction can happen with any individual facing someone of the desired gender or look. Emotional closeness just makes feelings of intimacy stronger.

That being said, there are cases when authors need to completely rewrite the characters in order to accommodate the fantasy to the point it's better to create an entirely new work. Even if there is sexual attraction, it's still up to the characters to act on it. Or not.

It's not that sexual attraction between two people, especially in their reproductive prime, is horribly unlikely, it's that the over abundance of single mutually attracted young adults is tiresome and unrealistic.

Most of the time if you took two young adults it wouldn't result in a romance, because one of them probably already has a partner. Or one of them wouldn't be attracted to the other.

Nickolodean, first and foremost, is a children's network.

That might be why they cut the budget on LoK, because it was moving further and further away from the original Avatar's "kids on adventures!" story and deeper and deeper into "teens being angsty and complaining all the time" territory.

And, now that Avatar is firmly designated as a Red Bar subject, the only place you'd likely see it on television might be Adult Swim, though there's probably some cross-network clause that prevents them from doing that.

Poor writing was the first nail, diminished viewership was the second, targeting the wrong demographic was the third. With three nails in place, they decided they really had nothing to lose, and hammered the last nail in place themselves.

Maybe if the romance had been displayed earlier on than the very last second it would have escaped what >>36900519 notes. Where the final scene and consummation of the series is more about Korra's journey as the Avatar than "AND THEN THEY SCISSORED".

1) Korrasami is blown way out of proportion. They hold hands, that's it. It's not even a particularly romantic handhold, it's a "we're changing dimensions let's hold on to each other" handhold. Have you never held your bro's hand? Jesus hand contact =/= lesbians. Is there like some official statement I missed declaring them gay? In any case if they were to properly develop as a couple next season it'd be fine, but they're certainly not together now, and nothing implies they are.

2) Spirit tech is the single stupidest thing in the Avatarverse now. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the thing that kills the show.

Well, it's slightly less dumb than the absurd amounts of platinum around. And platinum isn't even a very strong metal. It works best as an alloy, mixed with OTHER METAL. The idea that you could build a robot out of it is full retard.

Though, for a lesbian, she was really chasing after Mako's cock.

I actually have a hard time seeing Korra even as a bisexual, because when she first saw Asami (who is basically designed to be fucked), she didn't even consider chasing that, but she wanted Mako to bend her since day one.

Likeliest scenario is that she winds up being one of those "college lesbians," who fucks Asami's brains out for a while, but then realizes that all she ever wanted was dick.

Asami, of course was basically the same, lusting after Makock and not even giving Korra a second glance. So, after they go through their college lesbian phase, they'll wind up going through a number of mindless sex-oriented relationships where they try to get the largest dick stuffed inside of them, and after getting their pussies wide and loose, they'll each find some guy with money and end up having him support the kid that's probably not his.

I've actually been planning to write something based on this.

In the era after Korra, her successor, Avatar Xun, who is a Kyoshi Warrior, finds herself forced to deal with the return of Sozin's comet. Specifically, the fact that the United Republic Space Agency is launching a mission to capture Sozin's Comet and place it in a stable orbit around the world.

Their spaceship uses spirit rays as its engines; the crew consists of firebenders, who can use Azula-style rocketbending to do EVA work, and Earth/Metalbenders, who are critical to setting up the temporary base on the comet. Avatar Xun, by virtue of being the only person in the world who can do both, gets on the mission, and has to deal with the question; is it right for humans to meddle in something as important as the spiritual nature of Sozin's comet, and the setup of the solar system itself.

Basically, what we've got is another "Dumbledore is Gay" scenario.

There's more than enough room to say "they're not gay" if you look at the series alone, but the author makes an "out-of-series" reveal, which ultimately doesn't even match the character.

Dumbledore being gay isn't even wholly accurate, since asexual seems to fit the bill better. Confused as a teen, but ultimately devoid of any sexual interests as he got older (which is odd considering how often he talked about the power of love).

If anything, Dumbledore being gay as a teen is some way of insinuating that being gay is evil and leads to terrible things, since his feelings for what's-his-face lead him to ignore all the evil what's-his-face was doing.

In any case, for two girls, who've basically been straight for four seasons, to simultaneously develop "romantic" feelings in the last few minutes of the show without any distinguished build-up, is basically laughably bad writing. In fact, the LGBT crowd should feel insulted, because we've got girls who weren't "born-that-way" suddenly flipping switches like sexuality is really just a convenient choice to make.

What we've got is half-assed agenda pushing, with the grand statement of "Look, gay people can be great characters, just as long as no one knows that they're gay and it's ultimately ambiguous so we can avoid any real backlash until after all is said and done."

At best, we've got a friendship growing. Not even really all that great of a friendship, really.

But still, it's the kind of thing where if the writers had said "it's open to interpretation" or even "they're just going to have sex once and wind up realizing they've made a horrible mistake and end up growing distantly apart from each other" or simply "they're not gay, what's wrong with you?", any one of those responses could have worked, that's how ambiguous it is.

And the implied romance has even less to do with the "story" than Dumbledore's fling. Dumbledore's fling resulted in the death of his sister or whatever, while Korra and Asami deciding that boys are icky at the last second of the show could be cut without any real loss, and in fact would make a considerable bit more sense than the contrary.

It's basically like a gay suckerpunch.

You're set up like "oh, look, these two girls are the best of friends! How nice!", but then out of nowhere "WHAM, THESE GIRLS GOT THE BRAIN DAMAGE."

It's basically a cheap shot by the writers after the fight is already over. If you want them to be gay, you should do that in the show, not as a "yeah, we never really said it, but we're going to say it" when it's past the point where it matters.

Next on the news, any two people who share a common understanding with each other and take pleasure in each other's company are now romantically involved!

Which still isn't saying it.
There's a steep divide between "friends" and "lovers", and holding hands isn't really crossing it.

Thanks to it being a kid's show, the series ended without any real confirmation, to such a degree that in the future, someone will be able to watch the series and say "What a beautiful friendship" without thinking any further.

They could have simply smiled at each other for a few seconds longer than necessary, and that would have been enough of a "visual reference" to basically end the series with "HA HA, THEY WERE DIKES ALL ALONG!"

Get the right music, maybe add a pink glow to the screen, and you've got more than enough visual imagery to say "THEYSA GONNA FUCK."

It's as straight-forward as it comes in regards to what the writers were intending, but there's still way more than enough wiggle room to say "Well, when my kids ask, I can just say they're good friends."

So much wiggle room, it's actually harder to say "they're going to sex each other" instead of "they don't even want to kiss each other, how gay can they be?"

See what makes me sad is that they would just go ahead and spoil the season like that. It's an ambiguous enough ending we could go into the next season and get invested in a budding romance and how it turns out.

>I think you're just projecting where an agenda is concerned, but yes it is poor writing.

It's not agenda pushing, but half-assed agenda pushing.

One actively tries to change minds, while the other is so non-offensive that it actually ends up being offensive.

No one (sane) is going to watch the Legend of Korra and say "Look at that strong, proud lesbian role model! This show really helps break down barriers, and really tries to show both the struggles and triumphs of a gay character without throwing sexuality excessively into our faces!"

They're going to say "Well, I guess the show could have been worse. It really didn't live up to my initial expectations, and the writing took a steep dive as early as half-way through the first season. Still, it managed to pull through in a way, and I guess I'm glad I watched it all the way to the last-THEY'RE GONNA WHAT?! Really? I mean, I guess Korra was a butch as butch can get without testicles and she's got really nice abs, and Asami is basically a dolled-up lipstick-wearing sex fantasy who's somehow managed to stay in the show despite not really mattering past the first half of the second season, but really? Did the two writers do this just so there would be more yuri porn of the two to jack off too? Not that I'm complaining about that, that's just- They're saying what on tumblr? Something about equality or something? I get it, you're going for the "white-Straight-male-apologist" route, but after tackling race, cuture-focus, gender-roles, economic disparity, and now sexual-orientation, your next series is going to need to have a girl fucking a goat while two men rape a baby in order to keep this ball rolling."

>> No.36926789

>>36926434

We're at the point tech-wise where sufficiently souped up nonbenders can have bullshit powers too, and with Asami's main focus being her technical knowledge you'd think she'd cash in on this.

Maybe going full Iron Man would be pushing it, bu tI don't see why she couldn't have some sort of combat armor and maybe some electric whips or dart guns.
