This rant articulated a lot of the problem's Korra's shipping has had, imo, and how it has stunted character development.

>> No. 104320
Holy hell, this sums up exactly what has bothered me about that episode/the shipping so far.
>> No. 104322

And a nice rebuttal to that http://zephyr16.tumblr.com/post/24938935953/beware-of-fangirls-disclaimer-last-weeks-episode-was

There's a ton of jumping to conclusions going on. Just go with the flow and let the story play out before damning the writing. On top of all that just remember the main cast are all dumb hormonal teenagers.
>> No. 104323
I don't get how people think Mako's getting a free pass for his actions towards Korra this last episode, because the way Asami was reacting seemed pretty condemnatory and close to calling him out to me.

>> No. 104326
And if she calls him out on it, then obviously there have been consequences. However, with the way Makorra seems to be getting set up, it seems like the fallout at the end would be minimal for Mako and Korra. Asami calls Mako out on liking Korra, he admits to it, and the breakup leads to Mako getting together with Korra. Mako and Korra get their endgame pairing, end up happy happy lovey-dovey, and Asami just sorta fades into the background to be forgotten. If Makorra happening and Masami ending is handled poorly, he could end up getting a free pass for breaking her heart, while she falls into irrelevance.

I'll be honest, my Borra bias probably plays a non-trivial role in determining how I feel about the Makorra elements of the last episode, so you should obviously take what I say with a grain of salt. And I really think that at the end of the day, we'll all be satisfied with how the season ends. It's just that some elements of the plot look like they could lead to less-than-satisfying conclusions.

and chooses Mako?
>> No. 104332
No no, I'm with you here and I try to keep my head out of the shipping issue altogether.
But I too don't see how this love triangle can be salvaged in a satisfying manner.

I just don't see Asami and Korra fighting over the prize. It doesn't suit the characters to engage in a senseless catfight.

But Mako can't just choose one of them either, can he? He's not the protagonist. The hero wins the love-interest, not the other way around. And Korra gave up on that. Also:
>Hey, I'm free now. Let's hook up immediately!
>Yay, I have no self-respect whatsoever!

If he stays with Asami however, what was all the ship teasing for? It makes Mako look bad and it makes Korra look weak for accepting him leading her on.

Maybe the whole relationship thingamajob could have worked if it was spread out over more or longer episodes. So that the characters have a chance to develop instead of changing their minds every 5 seconds.

And finally, Mako could have done with some better characterization. He's incredulous as the "prize". Apart from having good looks, he's done nothing much to prove himself as a desirable partner. He's a trophy husband. And that makes the entire issue look so damn shallow.
>> No. 104333

Who said we had to have an endgame ship?

Wouldn't be totally possible that Asami and Mako DO break up and Korra and Mako dont instantly get together? At this rate I'm pretty sure they will in the ENDendgame but as for this season I could definitely see things breaking down into that awkward state of non-relationship.

Really I'm just hoping the most that when all of this is through Asami doesnt have hard feelings towards Korra. Because PLEASE can we not do that thing...
>> No. 104334
That's probably the best course of action. If there's any at all.
They'ed need another season at least to sell me on Mako and Korra as a couple.

And still I can't shake the feeling, that leaving Asami at such a difficult juncture in her life, would also be douchebaggery.
She's going to be the one doing the break-up. Calling it now.

And there you go. LoK isn't good with that star-crossed lovers/passionate romance thing.

One relationship will uneventfully sputter out so that another one can lazily drag itself in. That's not even teen drama. That's just stuff happening.
>> No. 104337
That is one terrible rebuttal with some terrible relationship advice and terrible fanfiction ideas.

The original rant posted here >>104312
had some really nice analysis, though. It's not about shipping; it's about making the character development feel organic and writing the characters in a way that makes sense.
>> No. 104342
>Why didn’t Mako visibly, openly realize that he was being a cheating jackass

Liked the rest of the rant though, mostly because it aknowledges the strenght of other LOK relationships instead of going off retarded tangents like "why Korra's bending sucks where's the Avatar state herp derp".
>> No. 104343
>"why Korra's bending sucks where's the Avatar state herp derp".
Those are legitimate questions which, if not answered by her doing airbending and the avatar state during the finale will go unanswered and have made this entire 12 episode run a complete and total waste of time for everyone involved.
>> No. 104345
Go back to /co/, seriously.
>> No. 104349
On the whole shipping tease stuff can I just point something out?

Aang falls for katara the first girl he meets constantly snubbed off/ignored/friend zoned till the finale. Korra falls for mako ok not the first but first guy she showed interest in. did no one see the whole formula recycle coming besides me? you all act so surprised when it was pretty obvious from the start. hell all my other predictions failed (I was so sure yakone had something to do with amon) but this one was way to obvious even in introducing Asami they kept flashing mako's hiddin/secret? feelings for korra at you.

Let's start placing bets right now, if Korra goes into the Avatar State, who do you think would bring her out of it? The obvious favorite is Mako, but I feel like Bolin isn't terribly far behind for that one. (Although then again, I like the idea of it being Lin, showing she's come to care about the new avatar after all this time.)

I'd LOVE for it to be Bolin, and I think he's the better choice of the brothers even if it's just played off as friends. It could have some really adorable callbacks to the scene where they met. Tenzin's another option, and I think he could work really well for that scene, too.
>> No. 104498

It won't be; where do you think we are?
Mako will step in, elbowing aside Tenzin and an elderly woman bystander to get to Korra. He'll pull her out, say he loves her, and kiss her passionately as Asami stands there watching all this. Insert awkward Bolin-hitting-on-a-single-Asami line which she ignored with a chuckle and credits roll.

Especially if other characters try and fail to pull her out of the Avatar State before Naga pads up to her and licks her face and Korra just peaces the fuck out.

I don't care about shippers. Shipper go to hell. Pandering to them is the fucking stupidest thing this series has done. I don't care if they lead to ratings; making this into Twilight by design instead of by idiotic fan interpretation was the worst decision they've ever made; worse than pro-bending. Worse than Aang being allowed to never have to make a moral decision once in his entire life.

According to the artist it's meant to be younger versions when Tenzin and Lin were together, about him slipping out of her grasp.

For whatever reason a lot of people ignore what Tenzin said about how he and Lin were already falling apart by the time Pema said anything and just assume that Pema swooped in and destroyed a perfect loving relationship.

i'm gonna start shipping Lin and Thano for awhile now because they are both without bending mojo. you can just imagine them meeting at an "Amon Victim Support Group". she's all defensive and wont admit she's hurt and doesn't want anyone's pity. he's a former dick with a new found heart of gold. they'll support each other through their ordeal. i know there is an age difference, but that just makes it kinkier

then one night in bed Lin will suggest that they don't have to be victims and they can still make a difference. they can be an inspiration to others. they'll just need a symbol
