I'd say some serious PTSD and some physical stress from the posion and fight to her body. But not not permanently crippled.
Asami likely been watching her freak like that for the last couple of weeks, hope she has some insight into that. Maybe that will be the bit with her father, flashbacks to when her mother was killed and his reactions.
Well, as dumb as the "spoilers" sound I guess you could consider Bolin and Asami's paisho game to be some sort of personal bonding time that shippers could draw from, even if it's kinda minor and not quite flirting either.
>>118036 >I've actually had the thought that Asami might be someone who worships the Avatar. What even.
>>118040 eh they'll put down something probably. Leave it open so either can go for it. VA interviews sounds like she remains single at the end.
But hey why not, nothing to lose at this stage in the game for Nick at least. It's going to be online and some show is going to do it sooner than later.
Heck I'd thought the ship was just a fun idea but then this last season and that preview. They are at least playing to it. If it does I could see this going with at least Asami showing she has feelings for Korra and the Korra leaving it open.
>>118063 Things have been getting aggressive and mean in the shipping stuff lately. Another Korrasami site got hacked and possible just a few more that are just fans and don't produce anything. I'm really wondering what is with all the aggression.
>>118064 Well the Korrassami folks aren't too innocent either, they've thrown around quite their share of hate and fanaticism too. They aren't straight up victims or anything like they like to pretend they are. While I feel bad for the Korrassami shippers who aren't completely rabid or delusional, there's blame to go all around on both sides.
>>118064 >I'm really wondering what is with all the aggression. It's the last book so it's the last time either ship will have a chance at being canon, so tensions are high. Makorrans are obviously hoping for Makorra, and I think most Korrasami people are just hoping Korra doesn't end up with anyone.
>>118080 I'm more concerned that despite having 3 seasons and a few steps in the right direction Asami still remains a mostly blank slate who could've easily been replaced with just about anyone else in 75% of her scenes. Good for shippers because it allows them to self-insert or do literally anything when it comes to fanfic and fanon, but as someone who doesn't care about it either way it makes her a weak character.
>>118082 Maybe this is her season, Asami basically is the show in that she was rewritten and then they've worked out find a spot for her beyond the original plans. Time Skip should be interesting and maybe we'll see what Asami does in that period..
Its been noted that Gunnerkrigg Court has a similar problem in that Paz really has no reason to be there in this current arc save she's Kats girlfriend, and Asami falls into a similar bit. Asami is there because she's Korras friend and is close to her. She supports Korra but not the overall story. But hey maybe both of those will surprise and this will be their time to shine.
(M) Interviewer: "Now, you mentioned the fans and, when you have something like this, that has such a passionate fan-base, obviously, it becomes kind of overwhelming at a certain point; everyone has their opinion. I’m really curious what you guys think about the whole ‘love story’ thing -" (F) Interviewer: "Korrasami." *laughs* (M) Interviewer: "When you go online, it’s soo funny because there’re tumblrs devoted to all these potential, or romantic, pairings you’ve done, and then there’re people going ‘I don’t want any romance on this’.
MD: "Yeah; I don’t know why kids want this." BK: "You can’t make…there is no. Way. To make everybody happy."
(M) Interviewer: “Yeah.” (F) Interviewer: "I feel like Korrasami’s the way." *laughs*
BK: "It is ‘A’ way, it is a great way." MD: "It’s a valid way if you enjoy that…" BK: "It’s a good way; but there is no way to satisfy everyone and, at the end of the day, you just have to tell the story that you want to tell, and put it out there. If you start second-guessing, like ‘Well, I better see how many tumblr pages are dedicated to this ship.’ And then ‘Well, but wait, there’s fewer of these but they’re a little better quality.’ Like, if that’s how you’re gonna write and create, you’re gonna make a crappy show; so we just tell the story that Mike and I, and the writers, feel we like; and, sometimes people will like it, sometimes they don’t. Everyone in this room probably has a different opinion.” MD: "And then; then, then, then, then…and then there’re still people who want Mako and Korra to get back together, so,” *grins suspiciously* "you know."
(M) Interviewer: "And there’s fan-fic for all of it.” (F) Interviewer: "A Bolin curve-ball, maybe." *skipping some un-related commentary* (F) Interviewer: "This is the question, though: There’s this one shot in the trailer…when Korra’s in the avatar state, and somebody walks by, and she just disappears. There has been this idea throughout the series as to whether she is relevant or needed: ‘Is the avatar even needed anymore?’, and I’m wondering if that is kinda the big thing that is gonna play out in this season as maybe some voices rise up once again to be like ‘Not really…we don’t need you, we need equanimity?’"
MD: "I mean, I will actually, I’d say, a lot of it is more Korras’ internal voice telling her that. It’s kind of her journey of figuring out ‘What is my role? Am I really needed?’ There’s not as…" BK: "There’s some of that." MD: "Yeah, there’s some of that, coming from other people; but it has a lot to do with her own psyche, and those negative voices we all have in our heads telling us we’re ‘not good enough’ or we’re ‘not needed,’ or whatever and so…" BK: "That we did the wrong ship…" *laughing* BK: "It keeps me up at night!"
Yea, knew that going in. Just wish Mako wasn't do depressingly bland. And that he gets Rewarded for fucking up with them. That last part is what really grinds me.
>>118120 Eh, I don't really have that much issue with Mako anymore. I actually thought Asami was the blander one. Mako is an interesting concept executed poorly, whereas Asami hasn't had any real chances to fuck up but she hasn't really shined either. Just the basic glove and airship stuff, and maybe ~feels~ because she's a nice girl. Not a whole lotta risk, and Varrick already stole most of her potential.
Yea, as noted it was a lot of that she was rewrite to be part of the team instead of a turncoat, it was just a hope that all this nasty trash reasons of why such a thing couldn't be would finally be dealt a blow and we could all move on. But I guess it'll be some other cartoon with nothing to lose to pull that trigger.
>>118131 Probably, its just some peoples opposition to such a thing with the argument "they are a small group why should we give them anything." Puts me a little on edge because I expect better of people in the 21st Century.
Yea yea I'm a knob about this. Everyone that is an old timer here has a quirk. An interesting note. Linda Ellerbee is having a Special on the 7th. 'Nick News' Anchor Linda Ellerbee Hosts Nickelodeon Special On Gay Kids
Are you seriously trying to take this as "proof" Korra/Asami is or was going to be a thing? I didn't want to say anything but it looks like a bunch of people already beat me to it. So just stop. You're starting to sound like a Zutaran with your level of delusion.
