This is a great comment! Exactly how I see it! They're like Yin & Yang - different yet they complete each other and need each other to be whole =)
Sorry in advance for the long post but it feels good to talk freely with a person with such great understanding.

I especially love how you wrote "They will always be next to each other" - they treat each other as equals, it's a mutual give and take in their relationship. They understand each other without words, watch out for each other and know when the other one needs to be alone or needs comfort. If there are problems they don't bitterly argue back and forth just to "win". They talk their problems through like any healthy couple.

I absolutely have no problem if people don't ship it - it's totally fine but I'll never understand those who outright hate their bond or even say it's abusive (I mean wtf?). They share such a healthy relationship which is rooted in a deep friendship, unconditional support, respect, reliance and deep compassion. It's one of the most beautiful bonds I've ever seen in media. Asami has shown to be able to be the partner of an avatar: she waited patiently for 3 years, her love for Korra never faltered and except for snapping at her on impulse in one scene she never held it against her. This only shows that in the future when Korra might be away for weeks or months it won't affect their relationship: Asami knows fully well what she's getting herself into and she wouldn't have it any other way. Aang, Roku and the others were away a lot too because of their duties but they had patient, supportive partners who waited for them and especially Aang showed that even though you're the Avatar that doesn't mean you can't have a family and life long partner - it just has to be the right partner and that's what I see in Asami: she's the right partner for Korra just as Katara, Ummi, Ta Min and the others were for their husbands and wives.

No matter how many "reasons" I read that they'll break up - I can't see it.

"They will break up because Asami has too much work!" - we were shown countless times that Asami would (and has) drop/ped everything to be with Korra and help her. It's not like she's the only one in her company and without her it breaks down. Actually as a CEO you have certain freedoms you don't have as a normal employee + you have many trusted, competent people who can handle things for a while just fine (and people do know telephones exist in the Avatarverse, no?).

"Korra can't be herself around Asami!" - What the flying fuck?! She let herself be vulnerable towards Asami and she's at ease and can laugh with her. When she's around Asami she's actually more herself than with most others. They both are.

"Their relationship is abusive!" - again what the holy mother of?! What's abusive here?! Asami was there for her without taking advantage of Korra's vulnerability and pushing her feelings onto her. She never did anything abusive or predatory - it's the contrary. She supported Korra with vehicles, knowledge and most importantly with just herself, being on Korra's side, giving physical and emotional support when she felt that Korra needed it. She's a rock for Korra to lean on and Korra knows she can rely on Asami and vice versa. Korra never asked Asami for money, vehicles or whatever - Asami gave it all freely because she wanted to so I can also see nothing abusive from Korra's side. Things were fucked up for Korra - PTSD is hard to deal with and many seem to underestimate how severe it is (I've read comments saying that Korra acted weak and taking too long...). A friend of mine suffers from it (he was a soldier in afghanistan) so I can relate to the time Korra needed alone to heal. It's not something you overcome in weeks - it takes years, many people never recover from it, they learn to live with it just as my friend. It has been over 5 years and he still has problems with it, he has nightmares and it affects his daily life, he's in therapy a lot and has to take medicine which helps him. Korra opening up to Asami about her biggest weakness in her letter speaks volumes: Korra hates to be vulnerable yet she let Asami in and only her at that point going so far to let her take care of her during those 2 weeks before she left for the south pole. Yes Korra wasn't there for support when Asami needed it because her father was in jail - then again Asami didn't want to burden Korra with that so she hasn't said anything about it in her letter (she's so damn strong - no matter what life throws at her, Asami always has her head up but even she breaks at some point) and just as Korra got back Kuvira attacked but she did provide support as soon as they were alone and actually had time to deal with it. Korra looked utterly heartbroken when Asami teared up and finally allowed herself to break down a little (also showing Korra her vulnerability) because she's only human and tell me what you want: Korra saying "just the two of us" was also her way of saying "I know you suffer from loosing your dad so let's get away from everything together, I will be there for you for as long as you need to heal". And we can only assume but I'm dead sure they talked about it and Korra provided a shoulder to cry on and that she then showed Asami places to make her happy. Actually Korra suggesting the vacation was what made Asami smile again and that's beautiful.

And her apologizing to Asami for being gone so long was her way of showing understanding why Asami snapped at her during reunion: it wasn't about Korra questioning her, it was about how much it hurt Asami that Korra was gone for such a long time and that yes, Korra understood why: because Asami was in love with her. Asami saying there's nothing to apologize for only shows her understanding of how severe PTSD is and that she can't blame Korra because she wasn't gone because she wanted to hurt Asami's feelings or because they didn't matter to her. It was hard for Korra too to be so broken, then to be all alone, to suffer from her inner demon and to be separated from the people she loves. It only shows their strong bond and deep understanding of each others feelings and motives.

"Asami only likes her as the Avatar!" - I don't even really have words for this. She took care of Korra more than once - of KORRA not the AVATAR Korra. She helps her with personal problems, said "I like Korra" not "I like the Avatar". For her Korra always comes first. It doesn't matter to Asami in the first place that Korra is the Avatar - she loves her as a person and yes - being the avatar is a part of Korra, a huge part and she knows that and can handle that quite well but saying she only likes her for the avatar is bs.

There are more but those are the most common ones I stumbled upon and I aways facepalm when I read them. Like seriously: have they even watched the show?! Do they know how relationships work?!


Thanks a lot for this great comment, it was truly a joy reading it! :heart: (and sorry again for the long rant :lmao: )

No problem. It is also a joy to read your comment.

Just one more thing, one of the strangest and in my opinion the most pathetic argument I hear is the claim that their friendship was forced.
It looks as if these people didn't watch Book 1 and 2, because Korra and Asami were good friends all the time, even in spite of a love triangle with Mako.
If someone claims that their friendship in Book 3 is forced, he should watch episode 7 of Book 1, where Korra and Asami became good friendafter which is quite evident that Korra gave up to be with Mako, Korra even openly encouraged Mako to comfort Asami (I got the impression that Korra cares more about Asami's feelings than Mako), after discovering that her father is Equalist.

In episode 8 in Book 1 is seen that  Asami supports Korra and she is ready to give her support and comfort 
no matter what:
Korra:"How am I suppose to save this city when I can’t even learn airbending? I’m the worst Avatar ever! I just feel … alone."
Asami:"No, that’s nonsense! You’re amazing!"

This kind of mutual support continued through the Book 1 and 2, and therefore their close friendship in Book 3 was not forced, they simply become closer friends because between them was no longer stood  Mako and their family problems and family heritage that they have to solve, without all that their friendship is naturally developed into something more.

This is great! We need more images like these where Korra and Asami are totally badass together. The most powerful couple in the world.
I also love the combined symbols of the Water Tribe and Future Industries.
I love how Korra likes to wear blue, while Asami likes to wear red.

You know, when Azula said this to some poor guy:"Together, you and I will be the strongest couple in the entire world! We will dominate the Earth!" 

Well,... Korra and Asami are literally become the strongest couple in the entire  world! They will dominate the Earth! :) (Smile)

IMHO jayyl captured her the way she is in the series. Korra is slightly muscular, doesn't wear make up and has short hair - doesn't make her any less feminine in my eyes. I don't get all this "Korra is too manly" talk. She's a different type of woman than Asami and personally I find nothing wrong with that.
