This is what living in a heteronormative society does to you: despite wanting it, despite looking for clues, I spent the last three or four minutes of the last episode thinking "They're not going to do it. That looks like...but no, they're not going to do it." Even after it ended, the better half turned to me and said "Was that what I thought it was?"

And...the *real* final scene, the one you were waiting for, created by a fan here. For a little closure.

I saw a comment somewhere last night that ran something like this: Avatar was a better series, but Korra captured your heart. I agree that Korra was uneven (were the writers talking about their own experiences when they said that all of life is a bumpy ride?) and that there was something very engaging about Korra, even when it was rushed or dull or painfully off.

Anyways. I may have some more coherent thoughts later on, but for now I wanted to share my joy.

In other news, there's still grading to be done, but I took the night off last night and slept in this morning, and I'm finally feeling a bit more like myself again. I can't work the way I used to--I'm quicker to get tired, less productive, irritable and cranky all the time. I'm just now getting some gifts for family and friends and starting to make our new year's card and catching up with [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts and some of the entries at Snupin Santa and [livejournal.com profile] holmestice. Thank goodness [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas runs a little later in the month, when life isn't quite so hectic.

Hope you're all doing well as 2014 draws to a close!

Oh man, despite it being only just barely there, I admit I still burst into tears during that last minute. I watched both TLA and LoK with fairly critical adult eyes, but one thing I've never doubted was that if I had been in the target age range for either of those shows, they would have radically shifted my sense of where I stood in the world.

Ha, yeah, I'm definitely in one of the demographics where the show ended up landing, but this is also one of those few pieces of children's and YA media (along with Terry Pratchett's Tiffany Aching series) that I wish I could somehow transport back in time and share with my eleven-year-old self.

I for one look forward to all the fic about Korra and Asami exploring the spirit world together. Both in the euphemistic sense and the literal. But mostly the euphemistic.

And gosh, am I ever glad it's the weekend. This last week has been rough. I hope your Saturday was a relaxing one too.

I didn't get around to watching it until today, and I forgot to put korra in my tumblr blacklist and I saw a couple things briefly that made me hope, but I was like, it could just be tumblr making manips! But then no, that really happened! I really wish they'd given us an actual kiss, but I will accept the handholding because they're so darling.

Well, remember, Korra's 16 when the show starts, and the first two seasons are probably at least a year, and then she's gone for 3 years, so she's got to be 19 or 20, and I can't imagine Asami is younger. She's the CEO of Future Industries! So she's probably 20 or 21.

I'm just so happy about it. I cried through quite a bit of the finale, but they were happy tears at the end.
