There's a vampire AU prompt on the kinkmeme.
I will not write a vampire AU I will not write a vampire AU I will not wri—fuck. How do y’all feel about vampire AUs?
asktastytahno reblogged your post: daughter-of-water reblogged your post My problem… Okay, I know this is about a television show with fictional characters and hypotheticals. But holy crap, this struck me hard. Tahno essentially had a part of his identity taken away. Just because it was a part which he was proud of the point of arrogance doesn’t mean it’s okay to take such a thing away...
daughter-of-water reblogged your post My problem with the whole nonbender theory was always the fact we weren’t actually allowed to see him work through not having his bending and learn the lesson that he was more than just that—that bending was not the end all be all. It’s the same lesson Korra was denied learning since Aang just gave it back to her right away. Under the circumstances there is...
Shocking, isn't it?: Thoughts on Mako →
nikolaitesla: And there’s something else I realised. Mako truly dated Asami from The Voice in the Night to The Aftermath, and in The Aftermath, he even tells Korra to get away from Asami. However, in the very next episode, we begin to see the winds of Makorra, with the infamous warm smile in the back-seat…. You know, it actually did kind of cross my mind, and it would be interesting and...
I wish Tahno wasn't drawn so ugly so often.
ryand-r: I mean I seriously think the animators tried to make him as ugly as possible at times. But it didn’t work because DAT VOICE. Still though, it would be nice to have more screenshots of him being cute. Wait…was he in some episodes that I didn’t see? D: Because everything I saw, I liked.

You can take a bender’s bending, but the bond they have with their element is unbreakable. [[MORE]] - 1. A grizzled old man walked through the empty lot at night. When he came to a chain link fence, he drew bolt cutters from under his coat and made a door. Across another lot, to the generators. An alarm sounded, but he didn’t move any faster. By the time anyone reached him, he’d be...
: The Chinese Zodiac and Tahno/Tahorra. →
aiffe: So, after reading this post, which talks about what Chinese zodiac signs various LoK characters are in canon (using an educated guess for Asami) I kinda wanted to run the numbers on Tahno. Tahno isn’t given an age, so I had to guess for him too, but I feel pretty confident that he’s… (Tumblr is being a bag of dicks about quoting my self-reblogs properly again, but this is...
The Chinese Zodiac and Tahno/Tahorra.
So, after reading this post, which talks about what Chinese zodiac signs various LoK characters are in canon (using an educated guess for Asami) I kinda wanted to run the numbers on Tahno. Tahno isn’t given an age, so I had to guess for him too, but I feel pretty confident that he’s a Monkey. This would make him 22. (The other post’s guess on Asami being a Pig would make her 19,...

FIC: A Fine Line, LoK, Korra/Tahno, 14/?
Start at part 1. Also, taking this moment to remind everyone that this was all plotted in the week after episode 5 aired. Bits and pieces that have been written later have later canon assimilated into it, but for the most part, this is all a plot from when we didn’t know shit about anything. And just in case it isn’t clear, I really do adore Asami. (Writing her in Korra’s POV...

captaingrossaint: eatmyroflcopter replied to your post: Listen guys The fandom only likes him because he’s semi cute. See, I know people think he’s sexy, but I can’t understand it. D: I mean…how do people find that attractive? NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE HEY THANKS 4 THE HOT PIX.

formerequalistsonem: Who cares if Amon was lighter than he was when he was a kid? Where does that sound familiar? Hama was just as dark as any other water tribesman, but when she met the Gaang in the fire nation she was light skinned like them. Stop assuming you know how skin tone works in the avatar world,… Oh my GOD how is this fandom so blockheaded and racist. Look, I’ve...
Spelling of Noatak's name
I looked it up, Noatak is an Inuit name meaning “river that provides food for the people.”
Things that happened that I was happy about: 1) ASAMI. ASAMI BEING A BAMF WHOSE MORALS/DADDY ISSUES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHETHER HER BOYFRIEND LIKES HER. Class act, all the way. 2) TARRLOK. OH MY FUCKING GOD I ALWAYS KNEW HE WAS A WOOBIE. I ALWAYS LOVED YOU BB. 3) KORRA AIRBENDING. FUCKING FINALLY. 4) KORRA IN THE AVATAR STATE. YES YES YES. 5) KORRA GIVING PEOPLE’S BENDING BACK. I so...
With the finale coming in a few hours, some of my biggest hopes/fears: I really hope Amon is actually burned. And I mean like, the more horrifically the better. This is just me being shallow, of course. I was going to draw a picture of how he might look if he were horribly disfigured, but I’m pretty sure what I had in mind wouldn’t be shown in a Y7 cartoon (though you never know?...

Preamble: I do not hate Mako, Asami, or anyone else. Okay, I mentioned this in a previous post, and promised I’d explain it in more detail. I like Mako, but don’t really feel he belongs on the team. This is why. In Aang’s team, the danger was intense, but everyone had good reasons to take that risk. Katara wanted to end the war that had been ravaging her people for a hundred...

matsurihakari: We love ATLA and LoK and wouldn’t change anything about it!!! This isn’t entirely true…I would add more Tahno. A lot more Tahno. But I really don’t agree with the comments about how LoK is poorly written. I’m eating popcorn here, waiting to see if fandom can come up with anything better. (And if they do, I mean, good for them.) If people really hate the...
An appeal to taggers
It’s bugging me that I can’t browse art/fic involving Korra, the character, separately from all art/fic involving Korra, the series. The Korra tag is more or less a general show tag, so Korra needs her own tag, and since she doesn’t have a last name, I propose: #avatar korra Can people tag their art/fic/meta specifically involving the character of Korra with this? :D Shipping,...

FIC: A Fine Line, LoK, Korra/Tahno, 13/?
Start at part 1. [[MORE]] - The rope bridge seemed different by night. It was only a thick rope tied to trees on either side, with two thinner ropes making handholds at waist height, and a few lines lacing between them and the foot-rope. Korra had crossed it confidently before, not even worried that it was slightly slick with green slime, but now in the dark, with the sound of the river loud in...

brightredroseblessedinconcrete: Let’s see… he took the bending from Lightning Bolt Zolt, a dangerous criminal on the streets of republic city. He took it from Tahno, the cheating Pro Bender with no moral grounds. He took it from Tarlok, the corrupt bender politician responsible for the kidnapping of Avatar Korra. And during all those moments we found ourselves cheering that man on. His idea of...
