  3. Bending per season

    I noticed Korra has been using a lot of earth and airbending in the first episodes of book 3, and it sort of got me thinking that she seems to have had different preferences in which element to use most, in each season. The element she primarily uses may speak a bit of her emotional state of mind.

    She used a lot of firebending in book 1, and it suits her. Fire is the element of power, and it’s strong and direct, even if it’s lacking in defensive moves. It rather fits her personality, as she’s brash and rather a hothead in book 1, and let’s be honest; firebending is a pretty cool way to show off a little.

    Yeah, like that

    If she wasn’t stereotypes as a waterbender for her probending team (and water is used somewhat like firebending in pro-bending anyway, as there are severe limits on it) she’d have been using firebending primarily, except for a bit of earthbending here and there while chasing the equalists through town. In fairness, there has been a decent amount of waterbending outside of probending too, but most of the time actually for the purposes of transportation.

    Book 2 had a lot of waterbending (attacks) instead, and significantly less firebending. Air and earthbending pop up every so often, but never really more than one or two moves per fight. Water is the element of change and emotion, the push and pull attempting to find balance, and book 2 (especially the first half) is very much stressful and confusing for Korra, as she tries to balance the material and spiritual worlds, the Northern water tribe and the southern, and her uncle as a teacher with her old mentors, Tonraq and Tenzin. Besides water, she still uses a fair amount of fire attacks, which are direct and agressive. When she was taunted by Unalaq in the prison hall, she flung a blast of fire at him.

    Also, there’s an awful lot of snow, so why not use it?

    The finale of book 2 uses all the elements fairly evenly (with some emphasis on water, ‘cause snow and stuff), reflecting the avatar cycle, and the avatar vs avatar battle. You could also interpret it as Korra finding a measure of balance in herself at this point.

    Now, in book 3, I have noticed Korra has used earth and airbending almost to the exclusion of fire and water (both used only once, attempting to remove the vines). This might speak volumes of the fact she is gaining a better grip on herself as a person. Earthbending is the element of substance, patience and endurance. Airbending is the elemental of freedom, peace, the detachment from worldly problems, and spiritual enlightenment. Opposite to fire and water, these elements are the least emotionally tied. Both are thematically appropriate as well, because the book takes place in the earth kingdom, and Korra has finally mastered air while searching for new airbenders.

    This rocks.

    This is a neat breakdown of Korra’s preferred element by season.

    I wonder if the OP would be interested in seeing Iruka’s detailed breakdown of every element used in Book 1, though.  ;)

    Part: 1/2

    Yoo Jae-myung, animation director of The Legend of Korra, discusses Nickelodeons initial hesitancy to accept Mike and Bryans proposal of the show… and Korra.

    “The sequel focuses on the incarnation of the new Avatar, Korra, as she tries to save a city called the Republic City.”

    “So, Korra is a young girl , not a boy. Heroes and protagonists are usually men.”

    “That actually became a problem.

    Nickelodeon was reluctant to produce this animated series at first because the protagonist was a girl.

    I guess you could say that Americans are more conservative than Koreans.

    The production was suspended just because the protagonist was a girl.

    To compare this situation to a movie production, it’s as if the lead actor has already been cast, but the production agency decides to stop the filming because they don’t approve of the actor.”

    Part 2: (x)

    Full interview: (x)

    You know what?

    Flip it.

    I’m blaming this. This is why we can’t have nice things. This is why we don’t get the episodes. This is why we don’t get commercials or proper advertising or merchandise. This is still prevalent, they’re still bitter about this, and their utter incompetence and ineptitude when it comes to marketing and promotion could not have POSSIBLY been the genuine reasons for this show’s troubles in the ratings, so it must have been because she’s a girl, so you see “we were right”. That’s all.

    This viewpoint will continue until I have a better explanation from the studios. I don’t care if the episodes are on their website when I post this message and jump over to the site, my stance will remain the same. I want an explanation. If you’re not going to give me the product I want to invest in, I want an explanation as to why I can’t have it.

    So I never posted my finished Garnet cosplay. Sowwy~ I get so excited during cons, I never really take formal pictures.

    Holy shit for a minute I thought this was some kind of Garnet statue.

    This is super well done!

    good cue to unfollow someone: if they say things like “tumblr gets so offended by everything” “im waiting for someone to get offended by this” *making fun of tagging triggers*

  10. avatarskorra:

    I’m laughing so hard because “Catch a brand new episode you can’t see online or anywhere else” has literally been their catchphrase in all the promos this season what are they gonna say now like “Hey kids we were just messin with you log on to nick.com to see a brand new Korra that you can’t see on your TV or anywhere else!”

  14. Please stop using “people of color” to refer to a very specific group!

    wretchedoftheearth:

    Use the fucking specific ethnicity or race. “People of color” is not a new, “politically correct” term for “colored people” (I often see people use “people of color” in place of “Black”) but rather a collective phrase of solidarity. “People of color” is not necessarily interchangeable with “Black people” or “Asian people” or any specific group.

    "Women of color" haven’t been twerking for years, Black women have. “Women of color” aren’t stereotyped as welfare mothers, Black women are. “Men of color” are not targeted by the stop-and-frisk program, Black and Latino men are. “People of color” are not targeted at the airport for “random searches”, people who appear to be Arab or South Asian (or otherwise have markers people associate with “terrorists”) are. I could go on. 

    Sometimes the phrases are interchangeable, like “people of color experience racism” or “women of color are fetishized”, but often they aren’t. When they aren’t, just use the group name! People of color all experience racism but often in different ways.
