Is anyone else slowly wilting away at the thought of not having an episode tomorrow? I don't know why but this break seems about a million times longer and harder to get through than the one between episodes two and three, ugh.

Oh, right, this is a rec post. Here's a Makorra fic I liked a lot - "The Stars, They Shine" by Makorrian on Tumblr. There's some light smut and it's a bit on the cheesy side, but the writing is quite good. Basically Korra goes into a coma after a raid goes badly, and Mako and the rest of her friends and family are trying to bring her out of it. Give it a look!

idk, I feel oddly fine with it. I'm writing a lot though and I feel like this is a good time for a break.

Title: Action over Words

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8149989/1/Action_over_Words

One perfect family, a displaced Chief of Police, a gaggle of orphans, and the Avatar. They were a mess. Lin muses over breakfast at Air Temple Island. Set after ep 7. Slight Makorra.

Hey you know that shot in the trailers of Korra shooting fire that hasn't happened yet? On Bill Rinaldi there are pictures of the storyboard for that scene, and you can see who she's fighting against. Although I can't tell what's going on, maybe you can?

So that just happened. Tahno and the Cabbage Merchant at the beach now needs to happen.

I can't blame them for getting so worked up about dumb fan requests and complaints after the Zutarian shitshow last time around.

OT: Do you guys think Tahno is from the Foggy Swamp Tribe (because they're the only light-skinned waterbenders in ATLA) or do you think he has a bit of Fire Nation/Earth Kingdom blood in him?

Sorry, it just popped into my head after the Tahno/Tahnorra fanart triggered all my feels.

idk for sure but I think it's the latter

this made me smile :')


As some of you may know, Korra has been the number one show with teen audiences in the U.S. for some of these first seven episodes. As previously mentioned, I don’t put too much stock in ratings, but this is mind-blowing to me. How is a Saturday morning “cartoon” beating out prime time network shows like American Idol, Glee, The Voice, and Family Guy with teen audiences? We’re all surprised, honored, and baffled. My guess is that the 12-year-olds who were growing up on Avatar are now 16-year-olds, and Korra has sort of aged up right along with them. Whatever the reason, thanks!

That made me smile, too. And not to get super analytical about this, but I think the power of fandom (and subsequent word of mouth) can't be underestimated. I didn't watch ATLA when it aired, but I was involved in HP fandom at the time and I definitely heard about it through the grapevine. In fact, I got into ATLA in the first place because one of my favorite HP podcasts devoted an episode to it and it piqued my interest. I know we're a small portion of the fanbase overall, but we're kind of a mini hivemind in that we all tend to like the same things, so when something as quality as ATLA comes around we're going to spread the word, and do so passionately and with lots of gifs because that's how we operate. Maybe it works similarly offline, too.

I wonder if they're just as baffled at the number of twentysomething fans LOK has? It seems like most of us in this comm are in the 18-25 range.

there is not enough non-incest m/m slash in the LoK fandom imo. I approve wholeheartedly

Waterbender Mako! I might do some more later like firebender Bolin!

Nice! It's funny, in a lot of ways Mako has more of waterbender's temperament. He and Katara would get along swimmingly, I think.

Can anyone list the names of the supporting characters in LoK, especially the teens, like Tahno's friends? For example, Tahno's friends. I'm working on an AU fic where I'm going to need the names of non-main characters. thanks!

His teammates' are named Ming and Chaozu. I think his fangirls have official names, too, but I forget what they were. :/
