just… God bless Renée O’Connor
what a beautiful angel
Let me get this straight…
It’s okay for kids to see suicide.
It’s okay for kids to see murder.
It’s okay for kids to see a woman with combustion powers blow her fucking head off…
But we still have yet to see a gay character in the Avatar universe. I want Korrasami, and a lot of us do. Frankly, I have my doubts. But that doesn’t negate that this season with Korra and Asami getting closer is the most realistic relationship any one has ever had in TLoK, and I am praying to the spirits that they do something about it. Mako as a boyfriend was a joke, and it wasn’t a good message at all to impressionable youngsters. They made up for it in this season, and I hope they do something more with it next season. They need to at least continue a strong female bond in some way.
This is character development. This is the start of something more than good looks and a forced romance. This is progress. Don’t let us down Bryke. For the love of God, don’t.
