and your eyes cross and suddenly
The irony of it all never ceases to amaze me
One of the struggles that The Legend of Korra’s protagonist, Korra (duh), faces is living up to the title of “Avatar” and the high expectations that naturally accompany it. This is especially tough given how she’s the Avatar coming after Aang who stopped Fire Lord Ozai’s tyranny and made a good impression on the world. Hell, she was raised from age four on nothing but this and trust me, that’s no healthy childhood.
So it astounds me to see fans do things like complain how LoK is “not ATLA” or “doesn’t live up to it’s predecessor” and the like. They’re basically mirroring the struggles Korra the character always faces.
Isn’t that just amazing?
You’re right, it’s a little heartbreaking to see people hating on Korra for the very same reasons she’s insecure in herself. I do think the fan reaction to Korra will probably improve when the series ends, though. When we can see her whole arc and character growth and how things tie together. I LOVED Book 3 of LOK, I thought it was better than any of ATLA’s books, but I’m largely reserving judgement on the series as a whole until I see how it ends. At the moment, people are comparing an unfinished LOK to a finished ATLA and that isn’t really fair. There’s a whole Book we’re yet to see, and it’s the last and most important one of all.
These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.
i’m sad this had to be explained. but hopeful that people like chescaleigh have the patience to explain it.
out of all the things was hoping for in book 4 i did not expect one of them to be old men in longjohns
I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I know I need to advance the main quest, but instead I faff about doing side quests because the main quest is intimidating and I don’t feel like I’ve leveled up enough to be able to handle it.
I agree, anon
I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.
You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.
Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.
A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.
On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.
So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.
As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.
Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.
First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.
Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.
You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.
I had no idea :(
I literally just saw this one the news but they werent too big on explaining why people are protesting, just talking about how big the protests were and stuff..
