Phew, I was worried you guys would be really upset at them "lover's tiff"'ing the whole way through. Carry on, then.

Still neutral on ships involving Korra. I swear, I have never taken this long to plant my flag on a ship for a show/story ever...
The best posts I ever made were the ones I didn't make.

I do that all the time when I'm neutral about a ship. I kinda just end up multi-shipping when I'm not all that into the main canon ship.

I liked how supportive he was of her but I believe he should've offered his own opinion anyway. All the little moments I liked too.

A most welcome thread to have for a great ship that has now gotten greater. Thanks for making this one divs! *yuan of appreciation to you!*

TKC without a Makorra thread would be like an ATLA forum without a Kataang thread! XDDDD

I think everyone has mostly covered all the moments already but I just have to note I love their characteristic greeting spin, Mako's admission that he's not as good as he should be at being the Avatar's boyfriend.  I was a little surprised at the tension, but loved how they shared, worked through it, and forgave each other.

That awesome hand hold (that Korra initiates), and especially the cute cotton candy feeding scene.   You could see any couple at a carnival enjoying the same thing.

Not only would Tonraq and Senna have met Mako during Endgame and that terrible time that brought all the families together, they would have had to seen their affection. Heck, Tonraq actually teases Mako for a moment. That shows their familiarity.

For anyone who is a Makorra writer on this thread, and there are a number of us posting here, I feel completely justified in the way we've been writing the development of their loving relationship in fan fics on this and other web sites. We now see our fanon as canon. :)

I agree! And also, I love Korra's new nickname for Mako. I thought it was cute! XD

I don't ship them as hard as I did when LOK first came out, but they are a pretty adorable couple. I found it really sweet when she held his hand and when they hugged in the premiere. :3

a quick note about these threads:

they are going to stay in this board so you guys can discuss shipping moments after the episodes air without spoiling the rest of the board

after the 24 hour wait-time you guys can take your discussions into the shipping threads on the main boards :3

As an InuKag shipper, I'm pretty used to that kind of thing. XD


Anyways, I'm definitely still on-board this ship. :) Can't say I particularly loved the cotton candy scene--I dunno, just seems a little awkward to watch imho, regardless of which characters are doing such. I did love the face Korra made, though. XD And that one spin-hug later on! That was cute, too. ^^

Some things you see with your eyes. Others, you see with your heart. <3

Yeah, I wouldn't have guessed they'd be the type to feed each other cotton candy, but that scene was cuter than I thought it would be. ^^' And I love the little exchange towards the end! :D

Making Mako a total dork is really making it easier to like the guy. It's like they knew he was somewhat problematic, and instead of trying to fix the problem by making him perfect, they made him secretly a doof, and it was quite effective. Kudos to the writers on board who helped with that. He's already far more likable. Mainly because while he can be cocky, they address it as a trait and even poke fun a little at him for it. These traits are not inherently bad in a character, it's just in how one executes them. He really messed up before, but for the most part he's trying his hardest to be the best boyfriend he can be to Korra, and he's not being presented as this perfect guy. He's being presented as a guy with a couple of problems but he's really just trying his best, and I hope they keep this positive inertia going. Because he's been given this great quality that I was genuinely worried about before. I was afraid that their personalities would clash too often, and while there is some tension going on here, he's not the one blowing up, it's Korra. He's always trying to ease the tension and keep things grounded. This was a pleasant surprise. If anything, I expected the opposite. But no, it seems that over these six months Mako has really developed into the level-headed guy. He isn't snippy, he isn't crass, he's genuinely concerned and trying to keep Korra calm.

I really genuinely like this. He knows he isn't perfect, he knows he can't do it all, some of his decisions are still questionable, but he's trying his hardest while at the same time making no excuses for himself. This is good. More of this.

Yeah I quite like what they're doing with Mako. Makes Makorra a little more likable than it had been, at least to me and some others I'm sure. I think being in a relationship with Korra has maybe taught him to be a little more level-headed and supportive since he's dating someone who has a whole lot of pressure and expectations put on her.

I agree. I did find Mako a lot more likable  in these two episodes before.
