Wow, some of the bigger ATLA/LOK sites/forums really hate Korrasami. Like you can't even post some funny Korrasami fanart without someone going off on how "lazy" the ship was, or that it was "forced".  Yet they don't say that about Zhurrick which was admitted to be a last minute writing decision by Mike and Bryan.

Some of you may know the one I'm referring to. *coughs*

Like, it happened. It's canon. It's what the creators wanted. LET IT GOOOOOOO

I hate that there are places I frequent where I feel guilty for having a now-canon OTP.

One site came to mind before I finished reading your post... LOL! Are they still at it, even months later? -_-

I guess they still find the facts so hard to accept. Most of us could see this happening since Book 3, it's that we just didn't expect it to happen for real because of Nickelodeon's BS. Not everyone has to like it (of course), but Korrasami did happen. I don't see where it was "forced", even without the Yuri goggles... LOL!

That's one reason why I don't bother reading all their posts.

If I were to really, really, really watch LOK, it would be because of Korrasami. Yeah I suck. ._.;

It's just I like the art of it. ^^;

One thing really annoyed me here. A few days ago, I read an article where either Mike or Bryan stated one of the big reasons they decided on Korrasami was because of lack of representation of same-sex couple in kids' shows. Really? You guys just couldn't do it because you thought it was good storytelling? It had to be a statement as well?

Internet Rule 5: It doesn't matter what you do or why you do it, nobody will ever be happy about it.

That quote could just as easily be them considering the fact that it wasn't an avenue they had considered before and questioning why, then deciding that from a storytelling perspective it would be beneficial to have the only to two people in the Krew with actual healthy chemistry, interpersonal skills, and a stable supportive dynamic be the two who end up together. An awareness of the limited amount of representation of a group in media doesn't poison whatever those made aware then touch, it just opens their eyes to further story opportunities that they previously might not have thought to explore.

Plus, deciding you want your show to give a bit of hope to kids and teenagers who rarely ever see themselves represented in media is certainly not something I would admonish. Hell, they even said the day after the finale went online that what they offered probably wasn't good enough. (Considering Nick's weird censorship laws where you can show a person get murdered via asphyxiation but sexuality is in need of being downplayed, one wonders why it might have turned out that way.)

Honestly, with the setup from the first three seasons, the only place Korra's romantic status should have been able to go to was with Asami or no one, because ending up with Bolin would undercut his character development and ending up with Mako would undo both his and Korra's. Could they have gone with no one? ... Sure, I guess. But what's the harm in the alternative?

Not saying it poisons it, I'm just saying it's unnecessary for it to be a statement. It would be like saying they brought Katara and Aang together to show that interracial relationship exist rather than simply because they had good chemistry.

With the Legend of Korra comic coming out soon, it's once again time for tall the Makorra shippers to come out of the woodwork and bemoan about Korra and Asami dating.
In response to someone saying it was poorly developed, here's what I had to say:

Poorly developed if you weren't paying attention. Throughout season three I was like "DANG Korra and Asami are getting prettyu close. I mean Wow this is borderline flirting, oh my gosh."
And everyone else was like "Nah, you're just seeing what you want to see. She's totally going to be with Mako by the end of the show."

Then Season Four rolls around and BLAM it's not just borderline flirting anymore. It's straight up flirting. And the tension is real, so real that even Mako, who's dense AF, notices and asks "What's up with you two?" to pained stares and awkward blushes. Every time Asami compliments Korra in season four, Korra blushes.

Even the way the last episode ends, and i mean like the last ten minutes, you could tell something was up. First Mako appears in her path, and the two resolve the issues that they've had, and Korra places the past behind her. Then Tenzin appears, the teacher, someone who has seen her grow and over come trials and tribulations. Korra comes to terms with everythign she has learned, and how much she has grown. Then Tenzin is ushered off screen.

Then Asami is left, and typically at the end of the show you save the most important relationship for the end. Asami isn't just her friend she's the hope and promise of something new. She's Korra's future, which Korra takes by the hand and goes off on a new Journey with.

No there wasn't a kiss, that's because the finale would have been pulled off the air in several of the countries it was being aired in. But there was so much in the subtext if you just paid attention.

It's okay, we have the poppin' bottles post to remember if they really do come out of the woodwork. XD

And while I do think Korrasami could have used more screen-time--especially in regards to more shippy screen-time--I do feel it was the only pairing for them that made sense. And a rockin' one to boot! The blush is what got me feeling that the ship was more than fanon, personally, and I'm really glad they went with it in the end. Korra and Asami really work well together and I've always liked that about them.
