I want to talk about how much I love this scene.
When a hero cries in fiction, it’s often because of some specific awful event- because they’ve lost a loved one, for example, or because they’re in intense physical pain. The crying serves the purpose of showing how terrible the event is, or how the tough hero is actually “sensitive” or “has inner depth” or something.
Here, Korra is crying because she feels upset and overwhelmed, and because crying is a natural response to those feelings. That’s it. The crying is not a big deal in and of itself, and there was no one specific thing that made her cry. It’s just how she’s feeling in general.
In real life, sometimes people just cry, like Korra’s doing here. And it’s not shameful, it’s not a big deal… it’s ordinary.
And then her friends-without making a big deal of her tears, or teasing her for them- come to try to comfort her, which is also nice.

SoLDN: Why is this soo cute XD
okay I lied this is the last one for tonight
okashii13 requested Korra (Koro?) with a sister on each arm ;)
Get in Touch with Your Feelings, Mako! (by bolininthedeep)
Korra: Just admit it loverbooooooy! You can’t resist meeeeeeh!
Oh my god. Mako’s screech. Korra. EVERYTHING. *so fucking dead*
My stomach. Seriously hurts from laughing.
I could’ve sworn she was going to say “Get in touch with your feelings BITCH.” in the end.
IT’S SO PERF.
oh. My. GLOB. -DEAD-
I think I just lost the ability to function ._.
The “Yes, Ma’am.” just kills me <3
Born from an angry comment I saw about how Asami and Mako were going to end up together because it’s the cliche “rich girl-poor guy Aladdin scenario”.
Korra, Mako and Bolin as street rats. Asami as a princess. Guess who I ship?
Playing in the Republic city tour thing on Nick.com and learning all sort of tidbits, along with stuff I already knew.
And suddenly I start thinking about the fact that Aang died pretty young in part because he used up his long Avatar life in the iceberg (;;_;;). And that Kyoshi, the longest lived Avatar, lived to be 230. But generally the Avatar is expected to live a long time unless something kills them.
If this happens with Korra.
Like, if she lives to be like 150.
That would take her to like, the future.
Relative to us.
Because obviously this is a different world with an alternate history.
But it clearly sort of parallels our own.
And the first series was like the mid-1800s.
And now this series is like the 1910s-1920s.
Which means that 150 years in the future would be
like the 2070s.
Which is the future.
So that last one was mostly fantasy with some steampunk elements.
This one is a more full blown steampunk with deeply incorporated fantasy laws.
The next Avatar.
Could be a full blown fantasy SciFi with all the same Asian culture and stuff just brought into the future.
And we’d get these three really different shows.
All in the same universe.
All with the same excellent writing and characterizations and such.
I am in favor of this.
Sorry, everyone. We aren’t going to premiere the episodes online tomorrow, or on TV on April 14 anymore. Now that I’ve seen this piece of fan art, we are scrapping everything and redoing Book 1 of Korra in this style. It should be ready to air in two years or so.
This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. Though cold and snowy, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. THANK YOU, KAMINARAI!
EDIT: Wow… Lighten up, guys! I was trying to convey in a playful way how much I like this art. Would you rather I wrote dry stuff like, “I am Bryan Konietzko, and I like this art”? Maybe I should mirror this blog with a really dry version. Anyway, some of you are missing the important point: THIS ART RULES! BE HAPPY!
I thought you were very funny and your point was well made.
ALSO LOOK AT THAT ADORABLE ART.
