// just because a character is a nonbender and doesn’t fight doesn’t make them useless
fighting isn’t the only redeeming character trait
bending isn’t the only redeeming character trait
a character isn’t less just because they’re a nonbender
a character isn’t less because they choose not to fight
drop that fucking misconception right at the fucking door
OOC: Wait. Seriously? Is this actually an issue?
*Points to Pema, a loving and devoted wife and mother*
*Points to Senna, mother of the Avatar*
*Points to Varrick and (possibly) Zhu Li, both non-benders who don’t fight that we’ve seen so far*
*Yin, Bolin’s grandmother*
*The Earth Queen*
Do I really need to go on? These characters are all wonderful, unique, well-written characters that bring something different to the table (even if there is one character here I don’t really like… The Earth Queen was clearly meant to be disliked, and she’s still a well-written and fun character)
And one of my posts has over 500 notes? YOU GUYS ARE TOO KIND TO ME. I shall have to do something. BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT YET.
OOC: Thank you! I’m sorry I made you cry. I felt the finale was very powerful, and the characterization of Korra leading up to this moment was too amazing not to speak about. I’m really looking forward to Book 4 and seeing what happens to her next.
okay these “Suyin is evil” theories are getting into some pretty desperate and… weird territory now
let’s all take a deep breath, accept that the theories were wrong and Su isn’t some kind of Red Lotus spy, and focus on the more important issues.
who is Kuvira and why was she introduced at the last minute? What does it mean??????????
OOC: I fully admit my theory was wrong. Suyin is far too entrenched in good guy territory to be bad/part of the Red Lotus.
Also, while the focus on Kuvira is highly suspect, I feel like it might be a coin toss on whether she’s a Red Lotus spy.
On the one hand, it seems like the most logical and (obvious) conclusion. The focus on her, the fact that we don’t have a villain for Book 4 yet, the fact that there are way too many good guys already. Plus, we already kind of have some foreshadowing in that direction.
"The guards… It had to be one of them." - Korra… Avatar instinct???
But on the other hand, it seems TOO obvious. And there’s the fact that Kuvira saved Chief Tonraq. Wouldn’t it have been easier to let the world leader die and make with the crocodile tears act? “I’m so, so sorry I couldn’t save him.”
So, things seem uncertain for the moment.
