What if..? xD I don’t even know what to say about it…

Korra Week Day 1: Alone
There’s been a lot of talk lately about how Korra has PTSD and how alone she must feel but then I remembered that no one is ever really alone. There are those watching over you even though you may not see them.
also i originally wasn’t gonna do a korra week thing but it literally just happened that i finished this today and it fit the theme so yay me
Here are the intro slides I made for our SDCC Korra panelists. I had a very narrow slice of time in which to make them, but had a ton of fun in doing so.
Korra book 3 finale.
I think I forgot how to breathe a few times. Studio Mir did some absolutely awesome, gorgeous work. Thank you whole Korra crew!!!
I like this GIF as the sequel to my last post. I also love how buff Korra looks in that incredible animation. THAT is how she is supposed to look in every shot.
Thank you, Johane! I would also like to give a huge thanks to the Korra crews at Nick in Burbank, and in Seoul at Studio Mir and Studio Reve for a stellar season and finale. And thank you to the fans! Thanks for sticking with this show after the bumpy ride in Book 2, and the hide-and-seek network shenanigans this summer. Keep cursing the Bryke for making you feel the feels and smell the real poop. We’ll be back with Book 4 as soon as possible. Hopefully it won’t be released only on smartwatches or some other inane platform.
P.S. My umbrella term “in Burbank” failed to cover all the amazing crew members in greater LA, particularly Jeremy Zuckerman and his epic score, Benjamin Wynn for his sound design maelstrom, Aran Tanchum and Vinny Quisetti for their top-notch foley work, all of our martial arts consultants, and many others in our post production process around town. It takes a village!

"I want you to know that I’m here for you, if you ever want to talk, or - anything.”
This was painful. Like, really sad. And the consequences will be interesting. I knew Korra would have some sort of major event occur in her life that would cause her to become debilitated and incapable of performing her duties, so this was definitely in line with that, but it was still hard to watch. Also, instead of the death of someone close to her, which is what I thought would happen, we get something that physically debilitates her—which in some ways, is almost better, as it removes her power and agency in a much more real, visceral way. And for Korra, someone to whom power and energy and choice means everything, being stuck in a wheelchair is a pretty horrifying thing. I’m really interested to see where this goes, and how Korra learns her final lessons: Learning how to look to others for help, and learning to get back up again even when hope is nothing but a bitter memory.
has anyone posted this yet because this is pure gold
Thank you, Matilda.
oh so cheesy

At the very end, do you think that Rose was dreaming or do you think that she died and went to heaven? I personally prefer the latter.
I firmly believe she died and this is why: Moments before Jack dies, he tells Rose that she is going to go on, live a long fulfilling life and “die old in her bed” — James Cameron is foreshadowing the entire meaning of the ending right there (I know it’s all too perfect that she dies exactly like Jack predicted but this is a movie after all). If James Cameron didn’t want Rose to reunite with Jack in the final scene, he could have simply ended the movie right after we’ve seen the antique picture of her riding on the horse with the roller coasters in the background, hinting to the fact that she kept her promise and did all those things she promised to do with Jack (live her life to the fullest, etc) and finally let the credits roll. Instead we are shown a reunion — what was the purpose of that if not to show the audience that Rose’s life was finally complete and her soul went right back where it truly belonged? In her heaven with the man who changed her life and she can finally pick up where she left off with him. (Plus if you pay attention to the passengers visible in that scene, all apart from Rose are the ones who perished on the night of the sinking which can be indicative for Rose reuniting in ‘heaven’ with all the lost souls of the Titanic). With this reunion, the story comes to a full close and in a somewhat bittersweet way, Jack and Rose finally have a happy ending where social barriers don’t matter. Where they can love each other in front of everyone without shame and death cannot divide them any longer.
Also, another thing that leads to believe she died: the movie ends with the camera panning over the glass dome which turns into a bright white light. You know how they say when you die you see a bright light at the end of the tunnel? Well I feel like that was James Cameron’s way of telling us that Rose saw the bright light and she passed over to the other side.
I'm a special lover sometimes, but you only touch a ghost. I'm a sycophantic courtier with an elegant repose.
