Bashers are lame and should get off the internet. Who the heck spends their time to complain about what other people like?..... it's just sad.

I mean, everyone should just like w/e they like.. of course discussion is great, as otherwise the world would be pretty boring, but bashing?... srsly.. no. =/

SO LET'S FILL THIS TOPIC WITH SOME POSITIVE STUFF NOAW!

Like my favorite Makorra video!

This is not mine XD I'm just sharing the awesome-ness of the video.

That's an awesome video! @_@

And I agree. Anyone who spends that much time and energy arguing over a pair of fictional characters is foolish. Debates are one thing, but bashing and arguing is something else. XD

It seems that bashers don't really have any support for their arguments, but they still hate on the ship anyway.  ~sigh~What can you do?  Makorra is awesome and that video is proof!

I dunno. I haven't really paid attention to what they've said, because I tend to ignore them, but it is!

Not gonna bash..but i woulda liked Makorra a whole lot better if they portrayed it a little better. Not with as much..intensity. Just ease into it..ya know? Like Kataang. But hey...theres room for improvement in season 2 for me to like it...i guess. *shrugs*

I gotta agree. I like Makorra, but the way it was developed made it hard to really enjoy. At least for me.

I think everyone just adjusts to it differently.

agreed, Night. To be honest, whenever people say, "It's not like Kataang!" I'm going to have to say, "Well, good!" Mako and Korra are NOTHING like Aang and Katara. And I mean that in the best way possible. Aang and Katara's was a storybook romance. Mako and Korra's, although completely different, is just as compelling. At least to me. Their journey from hating each other's guts, to accepting each other as friends and teammates, to falling in love, is something I really liked. <3

I dunno, I love this ship, yet I can't see what I do. It was rushed, poorly executed, and doesn't really make that much sense.

But yet... OMG MAKORRA SPAZZES *twitch*

This is exactly it! I love how you put this, divs! This is pretty much what I've been thinking.

The comparisons to other ships are kind of annoying. No ship in either of these fandoms is Kataang 2.0 or Zutara 2.0. They're all their own characters with their own personalities and they're different. They might have similarities, but that doesn't make any LoK ship or character a version 2.0 of another.

I'll just say that for me personally, Kataang has nothing to do with it. Kataang is only an example of a ship that was developed well. I'm a veteran shipper and a romance writer and I just found Makorra to not be executed in a way that will appeal and make sense to many fans. I feel like the ship had a lot of potential that was wasted.

I never wanted the ship to be Kataang 2.0 or Zutara 2.0. I just wanted a good ship.

I don't think it has anything to do with a lot of people, but for a while, I remember there being a lot of comparisons between Makorra and Zutara and Kataang and such. I don't believe it happened on KF or here, but on other places in the internet (probably tumblr, but I can't remember ^^') but it just kind of bothered me, because as many similarities as there might me between characters/ships in the two series, they're not a newer version. ^^'

I remember that too and it bugged the crap out of me. And it was definitely mostly on tumblr.

I was the person that kept trying to stop people from comparing them to other characters, because you're often disappointed if they aren't anything like that character. Like people thinking Bolin was the Sokka 2.0.

Yeah, it just kind of bothered me is all. I mean, I love Sokka and Bolin to pieces but, as similar as they might be, Bolin isn't a Sokka 2.0 and Makorra isn't a 2.0 of anything. But, to each his own, I guess. If people want to look at it that way, it's fine as long as there aren't any squabbles about it. ^^'

Oh geez..i said like kataang. :l whyd i say that..lol

I only meant i wish it wasnt rushed..i wanted it evenly paced like kataang was.
It just felt too much like two teenagers (well techniquely one in my eyes) that rushed too much into sexual attraction and not as much of the 'getting to know eachother' part. I can agree though..The Revelation was a sweet and positive way Bryke brought them together to work as a team and the relationship actually didnt look too shabby for me to actually ship it. Then episode 5 came. After all the mumbo jumbo with the Spirit of Competition the ship kinda didnt appeal as much to me anymore. It seemed too forced and hurting peoples feelings (whether they realize it or not) isnt a quality in a ship that interests me.

Im sorry everyone..i hope im not upsetting anyone. Just voicing my opinion. :/
Ill leave now.

I've said this before, but I think a reason there wasn't development hardly at all was because there was no time to have any development. If there was more time, I'm sure there would be more. Which is where we will actually get development come season two. I think we will see a lot happen between them.
