I don’t understand why some of the people in the legend of korra fandom seem to be okay with cheating?
I mean I see comments like ‘YEAH I’M GLAD KORRA KISSED MAKO’ um
Mako was dating Asami. He cheated on his girlfriend with someone who, face it, doesn’t really know him. Asami doesn’t really know Mako either but the scarf deal, I mean, as far as I remember, not even Korra knows the meaning behind it. So, I mean, Mako and Asami have developed further and more then Mako and Korra.
The only really bonding they had was searching for Bolin.
But their “Relationship” started because, ‘OH HE’S HOT WHO IS HE I LIKE HIM’ and Mako was a flat out jerk to her until they did that search and Mako realized Korra was cool, but cool enough to date? Then Asami came in and fkjgnzdkfjn they didn’t even be friends first, there is no real ground. It’s just ‘hey you’re hot I like you’ oh and after only knowing him for like what a month or two she goes ‘I LOVE YOU WE’RE MADE FOR EACH OTHER’. That’s usually the signal that ‘OH SHIT SHE’S CRAZY. RUN. RUN FAST.’
Asami smacked Mako with her bike and was like ‘omg omg i’m so sorry let me make it up to you’ and then they started dating. I don’t think she was like ‘HERE I HAVE MONEY DATE ME’. She probably asked him first, probably before loaning him the money he needed because she didn’t want it to be like ‘oh you owe me’.
But she’s a powerful person, or was, and she oogled Mako from the side because she watched probending. She could have used her abilities as a Sato to meet Mako much earlier than she did. But she probably didn’t want to stoop that low. So she’s not that bad of a person, knownig that she could have done that but didn’t. If she wanted to meet him, she wanted it to be a normal meeting, not because her daddy is rich and she has special connections.
It just feels like, Asami/Mako is more real than Mako/Korra. There’s more of a stable ground.
But seeing Mako cheat on Asami? Goddamn, he’s not someone you really want to trust. He’s got two girls he doesn’t even know that well (by now they’re close, yeah, but in the beginning they weren’t) fighting for him and he cheats on one with the other because he can’t pick?
I mean, if you can’t pick, you don’t date either and you decide before you hurt someone.
So now Asami is forced with dealing with her dad betraying her and now her boyfriend too?
So yeah, I feel bad for Asami in that area but I’m still irked by the cheating and I don’t think Mako is the best guy ever, just because he’s hot. He was just.. he kissed Korra back and idk, I don’t think he’s the best guy ever, even for Korra. I don’t really think he deserves to be with anyone because I personally, don’t think I could ever trust Mako. He isn’t really proving himself as trustworthy, I mean, he was okay with hurting his brother too and shoving the blame on Korra. He knows how his brother feels and, despite having a girlfriend, isn’t that when you push away and go ‘no no I can’t do this, this isn’t right’ blahblahblah.
I mean he cares so much for Bolin, so why would he do that and hurt him and fkgnzflkjgfzn idk. Asami is more trustworthy than Mako, honestly. He might be a good guy, but he doesn’t sound like he’s a good guy to date.
THIS YES TO ALL OF THIS
