Southern Watertribe sleepover with young Kirima, Kilaq and Korra!
LOOK AT HER FACE.
SHE LOOKS LIKE HER MAMA :)
heheh that hair does makes her look like Senna xD
Also, I really want to see her hair down now…
Am I the only person that saw parallels between Korra meeting Aang in the finale (and FINALLY entering the Avatar State) and Aang entering the hall with the Avatar statues in 3.03 (The Southern Air Temple), stating who Roku is, and shortly after going into the Avatar State? Because, and I’m going out on a bit of a limb here, they’re both for the first time “meeting” the previous Avatar for the first time, going into the Avatar State, and then really starting their journey from there.
As Aang said, “When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change.” Aang is at his lowest point in his life thus far: it’s finally hit him that he really was gone for a hundred years, that his mentor — and closest thing he has to a father — is gone, and (he believes that) it is all his fault and could have been prevented if he hadn’t run away, if he had just accepted that he was the Avatar, if if if.
Korra is also at the lowest point in her life: She can’t firebend, earthbend, or waterbend, and although she can airbend, it’s the only form of bending that didn’t come naturally to her and just didn’t feel right. The greatest healer in the world has said that there’s nothing she can do fix Korra’s bending, or rather lack thereof, and every single feeling of inadequacy and not being good enough is hitting her at the same time. She’s back home in the South Pole, and she believes that she’s going to stay there for the rest of her life because there’s no need for her in Republic City. She believes that everything in her life is going to crap right now because she’s not a fully realized Avatar, and she never will be.
Here’s the only part where they differ, and just a teensy bit: Korra was sent into the Avatar State by the person she needed most, while Aang was brought out of it but the person he needed most. Korra, more than anything else, needed a mentor, someone who wasn’t just Mr. Spiritual like Tenzin, but an Avatar, someone who had done it all before; she needed Aang. Similarly, Aang needed to connect with someone who believed in him, someone who could grow and learn with him and allow him to be his own kind of Avatar; he needed Katara. And although they didn’t know it, they just happened to have the right person right beside them, every step of the way.
I don’t think I’m ready for this…wah!
