So when I was watching the finale during the part when Korra storms of all upset that she lost her bending I was literally screaming for her to go to Tahno cause you know, he’d know a thing or two about loosing your bending. (and that this conversation could happen), but then I realized she was at the south pole and that would be sort of impossible. Oh well, another bullet point in the list of ‘Missed Tahnopportunities’
Noatak and Korra parallels.
So alike, yet so different.
In spite being so opposite, in spite having totally different values and in spite being arch enemies, there’s a stark similarity in Noatak and Korra’s stories, because what made her love and rely on bending, made him hate and fear it.
Both grew up as prodigies, constantly training from childhood. Both of them under authority figures that considered them their tools, their bending abilities the highest valued aspect of their persona. There were high expectations and little freedom. They both eventually end up running away, attempting to escaping the prison, yet they cannot flee their destiny, the path their past have brought them on.
Korra is the Avatar, to whom bending is the most important, is the epitome of her identity. Noatak became Amon, to whom bending was the cause of all evil, the thing he made his life ambition to rid the world of.
They meet, they clash, in an inevitable showdown of opposite born of similarity. They take what is most important to the other, their cover, their confidence, their story. They take the other’s identity.
A/N: This is the really overdue prize-fic for kanames-harisen for being my 100th follower. I’m a bit out of practice, but I hope you’ll still like it enough to enjoy it!
Her prompt was:
Awesome!!! Ok, I know you’ve written some Tahnorra, so maybe something that takes place in book 2. Like maybe, Tahno becomes the Fire Ferrets’ replacement waterbender? If not, I’m totally good with some fluffy, glasses!kakasaku.
This was originally supposed to be something else, but I never really liked the idea until it got replaced by this kind of “knife-fight” idea. Originally, this was supposed be light and funny, but nope. Have fun with gritty angst, with some UST instead.
TW: violence, blood.
Somewhere between the water whip that lashed her side and the equally devastating blow she landed across his cheek, Korra knew she was being unfair.
I just watched the first two episodes of Avatar: The Legend of Korra and I’m totally dorking out!!!
Asami likes you as you are Korra, you don’t need to be taller ;D
and I know sometimes it’s hard to tell, but I really do like Mako.
There is no such thing as too much.
PLUS SHE LOOKS SO FUCKING EXCITED AND CUTE.
I couldn’t resist after making this gif (x)

I found these sketches when I was going through some really old files…. this is for you Korra followers…. prayer circle that Tahno shows up again…
