 So. Seems to me that somebody (should they remember me at all) would do a wonderful service to the world, or at the very least, the internet, if they came over and explained to me whether I should bother with Legend of Korra's second book, or not. 

I mean, I've only read a thing or two about it, and it feels like it would be a major waste of my time BUT. I do love Korra. And the whole thing is soooo pretty. And the music!!!!!!!

Maybe I should just watch it without actually paying attention to the developing action, just look at Korra's face(s), listen to the pretty music and bask in the art design...

This post was totally gonna be about how Aang cannot have been a neglectful parent. Just no. He's Aang! He lost everything once, he wouldn't let his family slide. Especially not a family he built with his forever girl. 

And where was Katara during all this abandonment? Probably in the same place she was while the Yakone trial was happening, but that's neither here nor there (lies. It's totally both here and there and everywhere). The point is: this is KATARA. On what planet would she have allowed Aang to get away with playing favorites with their kids? (hahahahaha hahahaha hahahaha shuddup you naysayers, I wanna believe they grew up and became adults and any and all mothering was reduced to the bare minimum, which means that there would be no getting away with shit. Except it seems I'm getting my hopes entirely too far up?). it just feels like Bryke's determined to assassinate every. single. one. of their characters. 

But srsly. I haven't seen any ep yet, so this whole rant is an entirely derivative product of all the rants I've come across since the season premiere. 

I'm thinking I will watch at least the episodes that have aired so far, both bc of aforementioned aesthetic reasons, and to see if any of these complaints hold any water. 

Needless to say, my Zutarian heart is gladder than ever that Bryke never, ever touched my darling pairing in any sort of serious capacity...

And today, on things what are good:

1. Lust, Caution. It had been recommended to me with flying colors, and I knew what the story was about and how it ended, but still. Punch. To. The. Gut. Beautifully done and acted and it features Wang Lee Hom's face. You should all go watch it. 

As long as you're over eighteen, okay? because I never ignored raitings. 

2. Fixing It. Which is pretty much the story of how I'm now maybepossiblytoacertainextentandonlyinfics/fanart shipping Makorra. Shuddup. It's very well done and, as the author says, proves how the ship could have been something really fantastic with only a few little tweaks here and there. Minimum tweaks, even. Just slight inklings of character growth and we'd have been there

This was brought to you by my conflicted feelings over Mako's general existence... ::facepalm::

Also, these are neat too:
Her Consort by Aimsaru (Korra/Mako, R)
let the butterflies cry by Nautica Dawn (Korra/Asami, Asami/Korra/Mako, R)
The Cave by masksarehot (Amon/Korra. But not like that. I mean, yes like that, but it's not creepy, nor does it have all the inherent power dynamics I would expect such a pairing to have, it's about how they have the same goals but go about achieving them in completely different directions and how they negotiate these differences, while being completely hot for each other. Bonus points for Amon's third IC being his total bff, and utterly HBIC. Oh, and Amon's not Tarrlok's brother and there is a scar on his face and going any further would be hugely spoilery. R) 

Apparently I just really want Korra to get laid. Btw, I am NOT shipping Amorra. I just really dig that fic. Because it's a good fic. 

On things what aren't so good: I still have a headache. Which meas I was only able to bag two-and-a-half hours of sleep, which explains the fic-reading, movie-watching spree. It will also explain all the jokes I'll be missing today. 

Hmmm, I'm sitting here considering the possibility of making a Zuko/Katara rec list. In case anyone on here would like to read it. By which I mean, in case PIPER would like to read it. These lands are deserted these days.

Apparently the Hunger Games are all the rage these days and stuff, but WHO'S WITH ME ON THE KORRA TRAIN? WHO?

And, in case you wanted to know, one of my neighbors is cooking something that smells suspiciously like minestrone soup and I kindawanttogoaskforabowlofit. Because I looooooove minestrone soup.

Know what else I love? KORRA. (and Katara, and Zuko and Suki and Sokka and Toph and Mai and and and... but you already knew about those, I'm just going through some kind of FEELS ATTACK because KORRA).

I need me some Korra icons.
