#okay #when i first saw this scene i has my eyes closed because bloodbending always makes me chringe #but watching this back i felt like i was about to cry #just the look of sheer terror on his face kills me #he’s so scared for himself and for korra#you can hear it in the way he’s trying to reassure her (as well as himself) that everything is going to be alright #mako doesn’t seem like the type to run from anything #but he runs like hell because he’s scared shitless #bending is all mako has to him #it doesn’t only make him who he is #it’s also his how he makes his living and how he protects the ones he cares about #without that he’s nothing#everything he worked for is on the verge of being ripped out from under him #so he thinks he can get away #and the look on his face when he realizes that they can’t escape breaks my heart #how anyone can hate this boy after the finale is beyond me #maybe that’s just my character bias showing
“You were named after an incredible man, my little Iroh. He was known as the Dragon of the West, once a general to the Fire Nation’s army, a member of the Order of the White Lotus, and owner of the Jasmine Dragon tea shop in Ba Sing Se. I wasn’t around when he was most of those things, but during the time I did know him, I’ll always remember him as my grandfather and an extremely loving man always ready with a cup of tea, advice, stories, and many corny jokes.”
In honor of Mako Iwamatsu 10 December, 1933 - 21 July, 2006
the third doodle for today…?
woops, Borra’d. Honestly, this is all I want. My babies to be happy. No shipping dramas and love triangles, just happiness and flying to the sunset.
also this is how I figure out if I ship anyone-draw them so cute that there will no be another alternative but ‘ship’.
