Title: my words will be your light
Summary: It’s a good hurt. /AU, He promised that he’d find her again, and Mako always keeps his promises.
Pairing/Characters: Makorra, Mako, Korra, Bolin, Asami
Notes: For Dicey. I wrote a thing that’s longer…
This is phenomenal. I love the fire and water.
WOW THIS TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO COMPLETE
Print for AX 2012 and Otakon 2012. Kind of made like a true blue poster instead of just a print, so I guess a motivational poster for Avatar/Korra.
All of the poses and compositions, though some of it is a purely aesthetic choice, try to correspond to the character of their element. Let me ramble about them for a moment if I may, humdidum.
The Yin is rising over the Moon, just as Korra is rising to her responsibilities as the current Avatar. Yin is the dark and feminine portion of the mutual Yin and Yang. Her right hand brings up water, while her left holds it steady.
The Badgermole is centered and grounded, just as Hung gar, with it’s steady horse stances and strong forms, grounds it’s practitioners just as Earth does for the bender.
The Sky Bison is protective, circular, just as Bāguà quăn invokes circular, deflective motion in it’s forms, so too does Tenzin turning from the viewer in a show of deflection against the opposing, offensive force of the Dragon.
The Dragon is in turn wild and spread out, recalling the external nature of Northern Shaolin, with it’s powerful spikes of energy in it’s attacks and forms.
I absolutely love all of the thought and detail that has gone into this, in regards to both the image itself and the planning/symbolism behind it. Gorgeous!
best thing i’ve reblogged.
Hahahaha ever since Saturday the Korra finale seems to make me angrier and angrier. As a storyteller and as a fan of solid storytelling, it is an atrocious mess! I stand by the creators are amazing directors, amazing concept artists, amazing producers, but wow are they terrible…
seriously korra even for you that plan was pretty sloppy
Oh god seriously did Korra expect him to be like “AWWW MAN YA GOT ME OH JEEZ SORRY GUYS”
korra honey I know you’re impulsive and reckless but I was seriously clawing my face off during this scene
if you haven’t watched avatar the last airbender, you’ve been living a very sad life
but you can still fix it
True hero of the revolution, tbh.
HOLY CRAP, this is BEAUTIFUL. His facial expression, his posture, the colors, the EVERYTHING.
Ugh, Liu, why are you so perfect?
