THE UNCERTAINTY OF CHANGE: A CLOSER LOOK AT THE ‘LEGEND OF KORRA’ BOOK 3 FINALE
By Juliet Kahn
I re-watched “Sozin’s Comet” last night, in the wake of The Legend of Korra’s third season finale. It was still wonderful, still grand and gorgeous and heavy with emotion. But it felt different this time. It felt…funnier.
And really, it is. Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s four-episode finale starts with a beach party. Sokka cracks jokes as he scrambles across a crumbling airship. The last spoken line is a blind joke. It is clear to me, in a way that it wasn’t when I first watched it, that these characters are young teens. Young teens dealing with genocidal dictatorships, Orwellian city-states and the general mayhem of war, absolutely, but their age lends the whole affair a constant, underlying levity. The adults that exist are kept at arm’s length from the action—present, but unmistakably marked as “grown-ups,” and thus distant. Youth, and all its connotations of hope and humor, are the engine of the show.
Legend of Korra, in contrast, is downright grim. The central team all falls between 17 and 20 years old, and 50-somethings like Lin and Tenzin are as present in the story as they are. Their relationships feel less timid, less blushy. Characters like Mako have solid careers and murky pasts involving gang membership. Azula was a terrifying and tragic villain, but baddies like Zaheer (and Amon, and Unalaq) wield philosophical weight alongside their grinning evil.

hisame-retsu gave me quite a bit of freedom when drawing her demon character, Hal. I had a drawing and a small snippet and the ability to extrapolate, so I gave her a crazy demon look, because I think all demons probably have crazy days, no matter how good they are, haha. 
Enjoy the sketch, and next up will be the colored character illustrations!

That recent Shakarian sketch is so beautiful I have come back to it like 5 times today just to stare. I'm writing a longfic right now which includes Shakarian and this is so incredibly helpful as inspo. You are rad, your art is rad, good job at life, etc.

AAH. AHH. WOW. That is literally one of the best things someone can tell me, is that my art inspires them. so THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am so glad that sketch could make you feel inspired to keep writing. I have so many issues with it (mostly their hands are too small) but I at least liked it enough to post it during my lull time so yes. Aaaaahhhh I love inspiring people. <3

*continues on incoherently* MANY THANKS.

Working a lot of hours at work plus wanting to do a billion other things at once means I&#8217;ve been sorely under-productive. Take this for compensation.

Decided to go with a Female Dalish Elf Rogue. Not sure yet if I should specialize in archery or dual-wielding, but I’m leaning towards archery. Plus I already have awesome dexterity which means I can hit EVERYTHING.

Also Temlen’s an idiot and I’m sick. This game is off to a great start.
