philostofhere asked: SPOILER**(but I figure you've seen it all) So what'd you think of Zaheer "letting go" and becoming air and flying??

I think the words that I literally said aloud were “this bitch can FLY?”

But I think it was an incredibly awesome addition to the little repertoire of cool shit airbending can do! I am a little concerned though about what that says if someone like that — someone willing to use any means to achieve their ends — can reach the ultimate level of detachment/spiritual wholeness. I think his willingness to kill other human beings “for the sake of the world” plus his ability to FLY kind of destroys Aang’s whole arc of holding true to his airbending belief system… If Aang, perfect wouldn’t-hurt-a-fly-but-maybe-a-giant-bee angel baby, can’t achieve that, why is it that possibly well-meaning but seriously misled Zaheer can? It does make me wonder though if detachment is the only way of achieving it, and it doesn’t have anything to do with actual spiritual purity. And it makes me wonder how the general airbender population actually viewed guru Laghima. His teachings obviously hold some weight, but using Aang as reference to airbending culture, his ideas seem pretty radical in comparison, especially when you consider how appalled Aang was by the idea of detaching himself from Katara. Complete detachment doesn’t seem like an intrinsic air nomad spiritual goal when you think about it.

Now I’m babbling so I’ll summarize with my earlier “this bitch can FLY?”

not that disabled Korra wouldn’t be awesome, but why is it that everybody jumped to the conclusion that her wheelchair usage was permanent? Plenty of people utilize wheelchairs temporarily when they are injured and they never specified why she was using it. I think that’s all that’s going on, I don’t think Korra is going to be magically “healed” like people are assuming? I think she just… recovers?

Anyone else wondering why they played up Kuvira like we were supposed to know who she was?
hmmm???

She’s been around before and no one really paid attention to her but she’s voiced by Zelda Williams, who is Robin Williams’ daughter.

Ooooohhh

yeah but they played that little tingle sound like she was a bad guy.

book 4 villain maybe?

wait how is the finale out yet it’s barely friday???? HELP

YALL CAN GOO FUCK YOURSELS

WHAT THE FUC WAS THAT 

ok help me out here i thought we were gonna get 2 episodes every week? or is that null and void with the whole digital thing? if so does that mean it’s going to take way longer for the season to roll out? or is episode 9 online somewhere and i just can’t find it?? or were we only supposed to get one episode today the whole time so that they’d still have an even number of episodes to premiere in twos til the finale? if so why am i seeing photos of korra in a straight jacket and muzzle everywhere??? did they preview an extra episode at comiccon a week early?????? help im so confuse?????

what if in a couple episodes the krew is in a bind and the only solution somehow is airbending and korra isn’t there and it’s just bo and mako and asami and somehow asami manages some totally brilliant non-bender solution and saves the day

and then later back at air temple they’re like sitting around drinking tea and asami sips hers and is like OW SHIT and burns her tongue so she like casually creates a tiny stream of air and cools off her tea

and everyone is like !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"ASAMI WTF YOU CAN AIRBEND"

"yeah ive had it since everyone got it"

..

"i never needed it before and i don’t need it now

…but it does come in handy to cool off hot tea”

early 2012 lok fandom was the best because there was no fighting and  literally all everyone talked about was how hot korra is

i love that korra became a baby again not just because like she felt helpless and scared and defenseless and that reflected that but

but like that was the PERFECT mental state for her to be in to learn what she learned

Grown-up korra would have seen those monsters and been like “NOPE I’MA BEND YOUR FACE INTO NEXT WEEK”

But baby Korra was able to be like “no but wait they can be my friends” and she accomplished her goal

Like all that development will carry into her continued adult life but she was NOT vulnerable enough to learn it as an adult

she HAD to become 5 again for that to happen

and i LOVE IT
