What If...
« on: January 18, 2013, 06:34:20 AM »
Just a thread to discuss different ways situations could have happened in Korra.

Decided to make this a thread after this convo Alpha and I had. What if when Mako went on Airbender Island and Korra freaked out and she earthbent Ikki and Jinora into the air and they were non-benders/didn't use their airbending to float back down. Korra would have freaking killed two children out of embarrassment. And Mako would have been like "Korra, you just murdered two children." and so she killed Mako too.

So essentially a serial killer AU where Korra kills people out of social awkwardness. Idek. xD

So what are your "what-ifs"?

What if Asami's moped collision with Mako caused the satomobile/bus in front of them to swerve INTO Mako instead of away from him and cause a fatality?
Would the scene have panned out similarly - dramatic hair whip, taking off helmet and bribing a Metalbender with bedroom eyes and an invitation to Kwong's Quisine if the whole ordeal was swept under the rug?

Amon had been in league with Koh, or was Koh himself in human form, deriving his debending from an evil spirit in retribution to Korra for past Avatar transgressions in her previous reincarnations as a water bender (Kuruk) and there was a Koh/Korra confrontation?

What if Korra stopped to think just how oppressive benders like Tarrlok really could be and took time to work on the divide?
ATLA keeps: Kataang hug from The Serpent's Pass, Sokka's DoBS WT armor, Katara's water skins, Appa, Azula's lightning.

LoK keeps: Asami's electric glove, Bolin's seaweed noodles, Korra's hat trick in the pro-bending tournament, Lin Beifong's police uniform, the waterfall behind Tarrlok's desk.

You just earned yourself a yuan.

What if Bolin was treated with respect and dignity by the narrative?
So did you.

Lemme try my hand: what if Asami, rather than Mako, had gone with Korra to confront Amon?  (Yeah, I know; Asami had to go call out Daddy and all that.  Roll with it.)
I keep:  Lin Beifong's resolve, Asami Sato's integrity, and Bolin's endearing inability to lie.

What if Noatak and Tarrlok were in league with each other from the beginning and attempted to take control of Republic City from both sides, top and bottom, just for the express purpose of having it collapse?

What if we had gotten 2-3 lead in episides of Aang and Katara at their prime of life, in love as young then older adults, Aang as a fully realized Avatar, raising their family, building the city, seeing the older Gaang, watched Tenzin and Pema fall in love, watched Aang age and pass gracefully and be honored by the statue being built, seen the city decay in crime and the rise of the Equalists, watched a much older Katara discover and train little Korra, and THEN "Welcome to Republic City" was Episode 4 (of 16)

What if Korra and Asami actually were good friends in the series?

What if Asami had knocked over Bolin with her moped instead of Mako?

I'd be a happier human being if they did that. As of now I'm having WAY too much of a hard time letting the Gaang go.

I second this! Honestly, though, if that had been the case, I'd have died long before Korra ended. XDDD

I.....don't like this. At all.

This is supposed to be Korra's story, so we should start with Korra's story. It'd be nice to have 2-3 episodes IN THE MIDDLE of Korra's story, but in the beginning?

TLOK may be a continuation of ATLA, hence flashbacks, but it's its own series. More flashbacks and references to ATLA would be nice, but entire episodes? No. Entire episodes should focus on the new characters, not the old. This is the Legend of Korra, after all. don't get mad i'm just saying...

How about: what if Mako and Bolin got their own flashback episode? That was something I was hoping for in S1.
