Yeah, I’m looking for more ideas again. Anything korrasexual. Because I love her, proudly saying.
Help me out?

Before the championship tournament in EP 6, Tahno once again tries his hand at making move on Korra. Despite her obvious hate, Korra can’t help but feel a little flushed by Tahno’s comments.
“Still barkin’ up lover boy’s tree?”
I’m heading into the Arena when I hear Tahno’s slick voice behind me. It only feels like snakes in my ear. I shudder, and not because of the cold wind outside.
The sun’s already set and the nightly chill is setting in. Our championship match isn’t for another half an hour. Why the hell is Tahno here so early? I ask myself. But then again, he probably wanted the home court advantage like I did. There’s something about being early before a match that pumps up your adrenaline. Still, I wanted to be alone.
“What are you talking about now Tahno?” I sigh, “Look- just leave me alone and save it for the match.” I am so ready to turn around and beat the crap out of him. But Tahno keeps close behind me, ignoring the obvious hate in my voice.
He chuckles deeply, “You know exactly who I’m talking about. Come on, open up Avatar. Why don’t we get to know each other before I start givin’ you those private lessons.” He steps in front of me, stopping me short from the big doorway. His fair-skinned face in mine. Those glassy blue eyes are smug with arrogance. He even vaguely smelled of some masculine cologne. Who is this guy. Perfume before a match? Seriously?
“Get over yourself.” I push past him but he falls in step with me again. Something about Tahno just makes my blood boil. His icy stare. His porcelain skin. His white sneer of a smile. He drives me crazy.
“What’s the rush, Korra? Eager to see that chump of a firebender? Honestly, a rookie like him- you’re only wasting your time.” I could practically feel the cold radiating from his body. Like all of the sun in me being over-cast by his clouds of ice. I’m not scared of him, but I don’t like this feeling.
We reach the door to the Fire Ferrets’ loading dock. I whip around and poke a hard finger onto his chest, “Hey- Mako is a GREAT athlete and a better guy than you’ll ever be!”
Another damn smirk on his face, “Please. His offense is weak. And he has to rely on you to defend his left flank because his pussy-ass is right handed. I don’t know about you, but that’s definitely not what it takes to beat a champ- to beat someone like me. Besides, that streetrat doesn’t even know he’s got right in front of him.” Then I watch Tahno’s unabashed eyes travel down my body, biting his pink lip erotically. He looks back at me and slowly winks before turning back down the hallway. Boy, did I want to slap that pompous fool. Flames escape my clenched fists but a different kind of heat rose to my cheeks.
Before I storm into the room, I hear him call over his shoulder, “Maybe once I win this thing, you could swing by my place and I’ll personally show how a real man kisses.”
Despite my own will, the thought flashes in my head. Our two silhouettes pinned against each other in the dark. His lips icy but his breath warm and steamy. Creamy white hands brushing over the dark curves of my skin. I shudder once more, trying to shake all the Tahno off me.
The match begins a bit later and I watch as he steps onto the pro-bending court.
I crack my knuckles, “I can’t wait to knock his stupid hair off his stupid head.”
So here’s the final part.
After parting ways, Korra finally forces herself to let go of Mako in order to access the Avatar State. Now, Mako returns to the Krew and faces Korra after breaking her heart. With her reaction being a fist full of fire, Mako quickly realizes that this wasn’t going to be easy. Catch up with partONE & partTWO.
Breathe. That’s all I gotta do. Relax. We’re about to attack the Equalists. And Amon. He will go down. Tomorrow night, we strike hard, and we do it fast. The Chi Blockers are quick, but we’re quicker. It all ends here. No big deal.
Airbending practice just ended and Tenzin leaves me to myself. He sees how nervous I am and calls the kids inside to give me some room out here in the pavilion. The sun is about to set now. I sit here crossed-legged and watch the slight changes of the colors that paint the sky.
They’re not wrong about that “calm before the storm” expression. It’s always in that moment where things become final. Like the whole “there’s no turning back now” kind of thing. Not that I want to. I mean, I’ve been preparing to do something like this my entire life. Sure, I didn’t know what exactly I might be doing as I was growing up- but I know now that I’m meant for this. To restore balance to the world.
Everything turns over in my head. All that could happen if I fail. There’s just too much to be worried about. Too much at stake. I could lose my bending. I really can’t imagine my life without it. It makes me who I am. I don’t know if I can do this.
I am too lost in my thoughts to hear anyone come up behind me. I almost jump a foot in the air when I hear a voice.
“So I hear you’re an airbender now.”
The hair on my arms stand straight up. It… it can’t be
I turn to see Mako standing just a few feet away. He looks almost the same since I last saw him. Only now he looks more.. tired. He aged a bit. It’s been four months since he left me sobbing in this very spot.
I scramble to get up, “M-M…Mako”
And in unison, we both slam into each others arms. I can’t believe this. The only thing running through my mind was, he’s here. He came back.. He came back.
As his arms wrap around my waist tightly, he buries his head into my shoulder and mumbles into my shirt, “I missed you.. so much”
Tears threaten to spill when I repeat his words in my head with a smile. He missed me, he missed me, he… missed me.
Then my face falls. He… missed.. me….
Suddenly, I push him away with all my might. “Yo- you.. missed me?”
Mako just stares back, “K-Korra, is something wrong-“
I can’t believe this right now. “Are you serious, Mako? HA! ‘Is something wrong?’ What the FUCK do you think?!?!?! Mister I’m-too-cool-for-this-shit-I’m-so-in-love-with-Asami.”
I don’t know where all this rage in coming from, but it’s in full force now, “YOU LEFT ME SCREAMING YOUR NAME, MAKO. I SAT HERE. SOBBING IN THE RAIN FOR YOU TO COME BACK. AND YOU HAVE THE FUCKING AUDACITY TO COME HERE- MONTHS AFTER RIPPING MY GODDAMN HEART OUT- TO TELL ME THAT YOU FUCKING ‘MISSED ME’ ?!?!” My fists begin heating up fast. Pretty soon, there’s going to be some fire balls being thrown around here.
Mako’s face becomes more agitated with each word that comes from my mouth, “K-Korra, listen to me. I had to do it-“
“LISTEN TO YOU?! WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE A WORD YOU SAY?? I HAVE TO FACE AMON TOMORROW, I CAN’T AFFORD TO HAVE YOU TARE ME DOWN AGAIN,” I swallow hard, “Not like last time..”
With a cry of fury, I blast fire at the guy who broke my heart. I follow up with two more jabs and a roundhouse kick. Mako dodges the fire balls quickly and counters with his own. I cross my arms defensively and wave the fire away. He throws more flames at me, coming up in different angles. But I keep running straight toward him. Mako kicks out, emitting a large blast. At the split second, I fall and slide on my knees to avoid the inferno. Closer now, I come back up and pull my fist back for another punch but the bastard catches it right as I swing. I react faster than he anticipated and knee him hard in the ribs. He lets go and clutches his side with a grunt. I take his moment in pain as an opportunity to turn on one foot and swing my other leg around 360 degrees, just to connect the heel to his cheekbone. The momentum forces him backwards a few feet and he sprawls out on the ground.
As he tries to push himself up, the pain in Mako’s eyes become apparent. He is at a loss for words, “..Korra- please. You need to listen to me. It’s why I came back now. To tell you that I had to do it. I-.. trust me, I- I didn’t want to.. Korra, please just listen-“
How can he mess with my head now, of all times. I shake my head and turn to leave, “I don’t need this right now Mako.”
“Korra- Just wait.”
I stop and swivel back, “No, trust me- I’ve waited long enough. You don’t understand what you’ve put me through. I know we’re still young but I’ve never felt this way about someone. I thought we were together on this. And then, to have you leave… I just couldn’t-.. I couldn’t……” I turn back and resume walking away from him.
“You know, they say that if you really love someone- you have to let them go,” he pauses, “Leaving you was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.”
That stop me in my tracks.
He goes on, “Korra, you’re one of the most genuine people that I’ve come across in my life. And I know that being the Avatar isn’t easy for you. I watched you struggle and it killed me that there was nothing I could do to help you.”
I stand there with my back to him, still listening.
“That day-.. that morning, Tenzin came in to talk to me after breakfast. He told me that things were starting to get very dangerous. That Amon is getting stronger. He was afraid that if the situation came and you needed to, you wouldn’t be able to access the Avatar State. You were somehow too grounded, too attached to the earth. When I asked him what was keeping you down, he said it’s because of me.”
I am too confused to even realize Mako had been walking toward me. I am surprised as he takes my hand. I try to pull away but he continues, “I have never despised myself more than I did that day. But I cared about you. Just like you, I would do anything for the people that I love. I couldn’t just sit there and watch you wrestle with yourself. I had to do something.”
I wait as he struggles with his words. He brings my hand up to caress his cheek. His skin is soft, but his face is twisted in pain and his eyes are shut, “I replay that moment everyday, torturing myself with that look you gave me when I told you that I didn’t love you.”
His voice is beginning to tremble, “When I said those things, I didn’t just break your heart. I broke mine too.”
I couldn’t speak. What is going on? For so long I’ve told myself repeatedly that Mako would never come back. That he would never love me. And most of all, say these things. This isn’t supposed to happen. Mako is dead to me. Who is this man in front of me?
I’m not sure of what to say. There is only silence.
Everything is backwards now. I had buried Mako deep in my head so I wouldn’t think of him. I was okay with things. I accepted Mako’s choice. I let him go. But now he’s back and saying things I never thought he’d say. He’s clawing his way out of the dark shadows in my mind. He’s healing up every wound that he left bleeding that day. It changes everything.
He looks at me now. His ember eyes are soaked in pain as he clutches my hand- pressing it to his cheek, “I came here, looking for a way to make things right. But I already knew it’d be a lost cause. Once I found out that you accessed into the Avatar State, I knew it was too late. You’ve already let me go.”
I meet his eyes for a moment and bring my other hand up to cup his face. His shifts his hands to grasp my forearms. We stand there for a moment, so close I can almost feel his heart beat just across from mine.
In that moment, I forgave him.
I only whisper, “You have made things right. All this time, I thought I drove you away.” Tears spill from my eyes, “But you’re here. And I understand now.”
Then Mako pulls me into a kiss before I could react. I hadn’t expected this, but I kiss him back with all that I have. His soft lips mold into mine. My arms lock around his neck as he wraps his own around my waist, pulling me in tighter. Our lips aren’t moving but this kiss is saying everything that wasn’t said before. I can feel him pouring his soul into me as I give him mine.
We slowly pull away at the same time. I bury my face in his strong chest as he kisses the top of my head.
And as we stood there, in each other’s arms, I can feel for the first time- the possibility that everything could be okay.
Is it weird that I like to read/write angst more than anything else?
I just find it so much more relatable. Probably because I’m still in the process of getting over someone who’s been in my life for a awhile now. But angst filled fanfiction- I don’t know- it’s just more emotionally charged to me than confessions of love or tender embraces. Not everyone may know what it’s like to be in love, but at least we all know what pain is like.
Am I supposed to like getting my heart ripped out?
Reposting old stuff
This is a continuation of partONE.
After the cold confrontation with Mako, Korra finds herself empty. Scenes reappear in her mind and the pain comes right back up. Tenzin convices her it’s time to let go and embrace the Avatar State. Drabble?
Empty. Everything is empty. Always has been since he left. I guess it’s been like what, two months?
I lay in bed wanting nothing. Naga is still snoring. I don’t think anyone is up yet. But the sun has just come up- so that will probably change soon. Amon is still out there. The Chi Blockers continue to reek havoc on the streets of Republic City. About a week since Mako and Asami left, Bolin and I have tried to go out on our own- trying to save other benders, but there were too many close calls. So we decided it was best to wait. Tenzin talked to Councilmen Tarlok and the both of us have been back on the Task Force. I roll my eyes, just thinking about it. Fucking Tarlok.
I sit up and make my way to the wash room. As I saunter over, I look in the mirror. I look tired. But I know that people say “tired” to avoid saying “fucking ugly.” Which is true. My eyes are no long as blue as they used to be. They’re more grey. And they’re lined with red. I guess I was crying in my sleep again.
Scenes of the last time I saw Mako flood in.
“I know what I said before, how I was confused and all, but now I know. I’ve realized that Asami- she’s the one. The only woman I love”
“You’ve done enough, and I don’t want to have anything to do you”
“THAT’S ENOUGH KORRA”
“You’re just embarrassing yourself. I already told you, I don’t love you.”
I shut my eyes and grasp the sink for support. I let my head hang. This whole time, I’ve been fooling myself. How could I believe that something existed between Mako and I. A guy like him would never look at a girl like me. I’m stubborn and aggressive. I’m irrational and I care too much. Mako was just the opposite. He’s level headed and cautious. He even raised Bolin, who turned out to be a great guy. Asami is perfect for Mako. She has everything that I don’t. She’s not lucky either, she deserves someone like Mako. They’re the ones who were meant for each other. Not me.
It was never me.
Tenzin knocks on my door, “Korra, are you ready to try again today? I hope you’ve slept well.”
The Avatar State. I’d say it’s even more challenging than airbending. And if I can’t even bend a puff of air- then what makes Tenzin think I can master the Avatar State. I sigh and wash the sleep off my face.
I meet Tenzin in the pavilion in the middle of the island. He’s already meditating when I arrive. When I sit down in front of him, he looks at me, “Okay, I want you to breathe. We’re going to try this again.”
I scratch my head irritatedly, “You know, Tenzin, we’ve been doing this for weeks now. I’m starting to think it’ll never work. The Avatar State just hates me.”
“It does not hate you. It can’t hate you,” he replies, “And you know exactly why you are unable to.” My teacher gives me a small sad look.
I look away, “Pffffft, I really don’t think Mako’s the problem.”
“He is, Korra.”
“No he’s not!!”
Tenzin takes my chin and forces me to face him. He sighs, “You need to let go.”
I stare at him hard for a long time. But my eyes begin to tear.
“THAT’S ENOUGH KORRA.” Mako barks, “LET IT GO.”
My voice is shaky, barely coming out in a whisper, “Ho-.. How could he do that to me?”
Tenzin only looks back at me and says nothing, for which I am thankful for. There’s really nothing to say. Mako is gone. He’s better off dead to me. It feels even worse to know that he wouldn’t even want to see me, that he chose to leave.
It’s silent for a few moments. The breeze picks up and rustles to trees around us. The morning sun is still pretty low. The island is barely beginning to wake. I can hear the kitchens sizzling away for breakfast; people are slowing getting up for work. Peaceful.
I look out to the right of us. I can see the sea expanding out to the horizon. The view shifts and settles on Republic City. From here, it too seems peaceful. The silver buildings take on a low glow from the early sun. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it’s the safest place in the world.
But it’s not. It will never be safe. Amon is still out there. The Chi Blockers are still out there. What worries me the most, is that that’s where all the innocent people are. That’s where Mako is.
I won’t leave them.. like he did.
I cross my legs and put my fists together. I close my eyes. Breathe in. Breathe out.
“Let your mind go blank, Korra.” says Tenzin, “Relax… And let go”
But it’s a different kind of empty. It’s full. I can feel it now. The energy surrounds me in a ball of light. Suddenly, I’m no longer with Tenzin. I’m somewhere else, but I can’t place it. There’s just light.
Then I hear Tenzin. “She got in,” he whispers, “She did it.”
When I open my eyes, I can’t see him. But I know he’s there. I know where everything is. I can see it all without having to actually see. The elements are calling to me. The ocean’s waves become alive. The ground beneath me begins to hum. The heat from the sun seeps through my skin and into my my blood. A smile creeps on my face. I stand up a raise my hands slowly. From a slight breeze, the air shifts. Now the wind picks up and quickly encircles in a loose tornado.
But before I can relish the moment, the energy ball around me becomes hard to maintain. Exhaustion starts from my toes and reaches its way up. The wind dies down and the waves calm down. I didn’t even know I was levitating until I set myself back down. Before I could slump to the ground, Tenzin stands up to catch me.
His face has never been more lit up, “You did it.”
I reach up and embrace him in a hug, “Yeah, I guess I did.”
Tenzin helps me back to the compound for some breakfast. He tells me of all his plans for my airbending practices.
I don’t hear my teacher, though. There was only one thing on my mind.
I did it. I really did it. I must really love Mako, because I let him go.
Reposting old stuff
So I found this around the LOK tags and it pretty much inspired me. I hope I’m not butchering the intent of this person’s art.
After the Krew get away from Hiroshi’s bunker, Mako and Asami decide to leave Korra and Bolin. Korra confronts Mako and tries to change his mind. ANGST FOR ALL.
“There you are!!” Korra calls out as she comes running up from behind me.
Great, she found me. I don’t want to see her. Not now.
“Mako, I’ve been looking all over for you! Come on, it’s almost dinner. And look, it’s about to rain!!” She takes my arm and attempts to drag me back to the compound. But I hold back.
“Korra wait, I’m leavi- I’m leaving our little ‘team’.”
She snorts, “Heh, oh Mako. You know, you really need to leave the jokes to Bolin. It’s just not your kind of thing-“
“Asami is leaving too. She’s coming with me.”
Korra looks up at me, listening.
I clear my throat, “We’ve decided that it-.. it’s for the best. I want to wait until things around here cool down.. We found a place just outside of town.. and…..”
I watch as she turns her head in disbelief.
“Look, right now- the city is getting dangerous. I need to look out for Asami. She just lost everything and I can’t afford to lose her too because of that. I know what I said before, how I was confused about us and all, but now I know.” I take a deep breath, “I’ve realized that Asami- she’s the one. The only woman I love.”
Korra stares at me, her brilliant blue eyes gape at me as much as her pink mouth does.
I go on, “And I can’t stand to watch her go through all of this, when she already has her own crap to deal with. You’ve done enough, and I don’t want to have anything to do you or any of this.”
I keep my cold composure and begin to turn away. But she breaks from her trance and tugs my arm back, “Hey! Now wait just a minute, Mako. Stop- just wait!”
I look back at her as her voice slowly rises to a shout, “Cut the crap, Mako. I know you’re lying. You are lying, aren’t you? I mean, you can’t just leave!!”
“No. You stop! You’re a liar!! Quit saying all this bullshit. You’re not just going to take off. I know you can’t just leave Bolin. What about him, huh?!”
“Bolin is big and strong. He’s grown up now. Besides, he has you-“
Korra’s eyes begin to fill. Her voice is wavering. I can tell she’s panicking. “Yeah- but,” she swallows hard, “You have me too! We’re all in this together. You said so yourself.“
I sigh, “I know what I said-“
“Okay look. Aside from your feelings for Asami, you and I-” Korra’s tears are on the brink of spilling, “I- I know you and I have something. I don’t know what it is- but it’s there. And I know you can feel it too.”
“Korra, that kiss was ages ago-“
She breaks down right then and there. She grabs onto me and pulls me closer, tears streaming down. “You can’t do this!! You can’t do this to me Mako!! You can’t just leave me. I mean, I need you too-”
“THAT’S ENOUGH KORRA,” I bark at her, “LET IT GO.”
My words ring across the courtyard. We were so caught up in the moment that I hadn’t even noticed the rain that’s pouring down around us.
With all the ice I could muster, I spit out, “You’re just embarrassing yourself. I already told you, I don’t love you.”
At first, her eyes are frightened. But then they change, pleading. Tears mix with the rain and drench her. “You’re lying,” she whispers.
“We leave in the morning,” I say as I turn away.
She calls me a liar and curses at me, but I choose not to hear it. She demands that I come back, but I choose not to listen to her. As I walk back to the compound and out of this rain, I choose to ignore her anguished cries, matching the thunder outside.
I think back to earlier this morning.
I’m the last to finish Pema’s morning porridge as Tezin enters the room, “Mako, may I have a word with you?”
“Not again. What did Bolin break this time?”
He gives me a half-hearted smile, “No, no. It isn’t that,” he doesn’t look at me as he talks, “It’s Korra.”
I straighten up from my seat and listen.
“As you know, Amon is gaining strength everyday. His power is still unknown to us. I fear that soon the situation will require Korra to enter the Avatar State.”
“Well what’s wrong with that?”
“What do you mean?”
“Korra will never be able to gain complete control over the Avatar State because her chakras are not all aligned. She is too grounded to the earth. And without her, we can’t win this war.”
“So let’s realign her. What’s the problem here? What is it she’s attached to?”
“It’s you, Mako.”
“I-.. I don’t understand.”
“I believe you do,” Tenzin looks at me, “And I’m afraid there’s only one thing to do here.”
The silence in the room has never been so loud.
“You’re not suggesting that I-… that I..”
Tenzin only looks away, “I don’t like it either.”
Clouds settled in outside, making the room dark and cold.
“But a broken heart may be what saves the world.”
Broken hearts. As I come back to my senses, I walk back down to my bedroom and sit on the bare mattress. My suitcases are piled in the center of my room. I let my face fall into my hands.
Damnit, Korra. Of course it’s a lie, you idiot. Holy crap, I can’t believe you believed me so easily. You’re right. You’re so right about it all. There is something between you and I..
Rage boils through my veins.
I know what I said- but I had to do it, Korra. You have to believe me. I don’t want to be the reason why you can’t do what was meant for you. You’re meant to save lives, Korra. I can’t-.. I can’t just sit here. I won’t be an obstacle. I want you to succeed. In everything that you do.
Even if it means breaking your heart.
She’s still out there in the rain, her screams pang against the window like droplets. I shut my eyes.
And breaking mine.
Has anyone ever taken the time to really appreciate the concept of bending, and more importantly- benders? Sure, you could say it’s just another superpower that we all wish we had. But I’m not so sure it’s that far of a stretch from the rest of us non-benders. You’ve seen how fit and buff the atla and lok characters are. [Uncle Iroh has muscle too, shut up] IT ACTUALLY ISN’T AS EASY AS WE ASSUME IT IS. I mean can you just imagine the effort it takes to pull solid rock from its natural state and actually project it 20 feet away like you would a dodgeball. What about the concentration to keep water in its place as you’re moving it around. It’s water. I mean I can’t even cup it in my hands without it dripping everywhere. And fire- YOU’RE ACTUALLY USING YOUR BRAIN TO COMBUST THE AIR AROUND YOUR LIMBS SO THAT BURNS EVERYTHING BUT YOURSELF. And air is fucking trippy too. If you watch- airbenders are only controlling a small current of air. It’s not just simple wind we’re talking about here. How in hell do you do that without disturbing the air around it. Sound moves like air. You can’t just speak in a crowd and have only one person hear across the room. And don’t even get me started on the subdisciplines either. Lightning, shit man. Benders have way more talent than we give them credit for. They have to work hard to attain that kind of skill. They train and exercise like the rest of us. Imagine- all it takes is only a few mutations in our biology. I mean like, bending is fucking awesome. Bryke is the epitome of genius.
I’ve been inactive in the fandom for quite some time. I need to get back. I’m open for prompt suggestions.
What ship is your guilty pleasure?
