Love my little man!
After this finale, I think I figured out what the thematic endgame of the series is — Korra’s going to teach the world to keep balance whether the Avatar is around or not.
As awful as Korra’s current situation is, I feel like it’s going to be something that she will end up learning from. And, if you consider her hallucinations — which suggest that obsolescence is her greatest fear — and the way those fears will inevitably interact with her extended convalescence (since she’ll have to watch as other people take over the job that should have been hers… or, worse, as a situation she could have handled with ease turns toxic without her around), it’s easy to see how the major takeaway could be that the Avatar can’t be the only force for balance anymore.
It’s easy to imagine that this will be Korra’s legend — she’ll be the Avatar who taught the world to take care of itself without an Avatar. And, considering what happened to the world due to Roku’s inaction and Aang’s hibernation, it’ll probably be the best legacy she could possibly leave.
In my time working for the state government, my job sent me to 46 cities in 11 years. I lived in villages with 8 people, rural farming communities, college towns… I was sent to every corner of Indiana and then I came here and I realized that this whole time, I was just wandering around everywhere, just looking for you. The things that you have done for me, to help me, support me, surprise me, to make me happy, go above and beyond what any person deserves. You’re all I need.
in memory of such fine 2012 memes such as “egg”, “scalene triangle”, and the early “rev up those friers”
for me the biggest unsolved mystery of the world is whether or not My Immortal was a trollfic or a legitimate fanfiction that someone sat down and wrote.
