mako i fucking stg
I know a lot of people focus on Mako’s face during the break up, but look at Korra.
Guys she starts crying, right there and is finishing crying when we see her on the boat.
It’s sad because despite Korra being pissed off—so pissed she literally kicks Makos’ desk across the room in front of his coworkers—she doesn’t want their relationship to be over. And I don’t think Mako does either, which is why it’s hard to watch because you know they love each other and want to be together.
But Korra constantly dismissed Mako, lashed out at him repeatedly over things that weren’t his fault, got furious with him over things he couldn’t control….I mean, Mako has been very, very patient and understanding and supportive. Her behavior this season—while understandable at times—can only push a person so far before they snap.
And really…Mako was right in the things he said to Korra. More so than usual, she’s hell bent on “it’s my way or the highway” and isn’t open to listening to ideas that she doesn’t believe in.
Mako’s the only person trying to figure out exactly what’s going on without automatically blaming the North for everything. Korra is set on blaming the North, so much that she’s ignoring blatant evidence that it could be someone else—even when someone she loves and trusts comes to her with that information.
We’ve seen Korra alienate Tenzin, her dad, and now Mako. Part of this is due to the overwhelming stress and situations she has on her shoulders, but another part is her personality and irrational behavior and stubbornness. I’m looking forward to seeing her grow, and seeing her and Mako’s relationship rekindle.
And rekindle it will. :D
so are people like back on board with makorra again for the most part? because i got off that ship around the end of season 1 and then season 2 made me ship it again and now since season 2 started i’m back at s1 ep 3 levels of shipping again thanks to the way they’ve been writing mako
"It’s hard … being the Avatar…"
"It’s harder being the Avatar’s boyfriend!"
but seriously, that picture of asami and mako went from 200 notes to 1k+ as I blinked
Just wanted to point out something I noticed upon rewatching this episode. When the two of them wake up, their eyes go in totally different places. Both Mako and Korra are shocked, but if you notice, Mako’s eyes go straight to her arms rather than her eyes- he is more freaked out by the fact that Korra’s arm is basically a projectile missile that could launch him and his face into space more than the fact that she was sleeping on his shoulder. In effect, he is more freaked out that sheis freaking out than he is by the situation. He is otherwise totally in control. Korra, the crazy girl who happens to be the avatar and likes touching his arm all the time slept on his shoulder? No big. As long as she doesn’t punch him in the face.
Korra, on the other hand, looks right at his eyes because she cannot believe what the fuck is going on. Being such a physical person, her immediate response is to react aggressively but then she realizes it’s that handsome firebender boy that drives her crazy and she’s like “wait. wtf. wait wtf wtf wtf wait did I just sleep on his shoulder?! aaaaaaaah”. She is totally out of her element and flustered and since she’s not exactly the thinking type, almost attacks him and then jumps back because OMGIT’SMAKO. Almost no control whatsoever.
