a guy i know was dating this girl called kate and on their two year anniversary they like went for a picnic and it was super cute and romantic but his friends thought itd be funny to prank him by hiring a skywriter to write ‘will you marry me kate?’ in the sky and so they did and she saw it and he thought it’d be too awkward to say it actually wasnt for her so he didnt say anything and now theyre married and he still hasnt told her
talking about physicality as it relates to personality is one of my favorite things ever so here’s something I noticed:
Mako adopts this emotionless blank look on his face whenever he’s put on the spot by someone in a position of power over him and i’m pretty sure this is intentional on the part of the animators - he’s the focus of both of these scenes, so any choices they made with respect to his expressions have to have been deliberate.
but pulpoooo what does it meeeean
It subverts the power dynamic - their power over him is lessened if they can’t figure what he’s thinking, or how he’s reacting to them. The easiest way for him to do that is to neutralize any emotion in his facial expressions and body language.
But he messed up with Raiko. He maintained this blank slate composure until Raiko asked him directly what Korra’s plan was - he glanced to the left, out of guilt and conflicting loyalties, and the damage was done. Immediately recovering his composure didn’t help Mako, because Raiko saw him faltering and threw in that last bit about having sworn an oath to uphold the law. Hammer to nail.
ooohhh son your emotions got the better of you and it hurts, don’t it heheheh i love this episode

there’s been a lot of anger and resentment towards Mako in the Korra fandom lately so I figure I’d draw some Mako selfcest
because clearly he’s the only person who can handle his bullshit
I WONDER HOW KORRA AND ASAMI WOULD REACT TO THIS THO………..
Are we having an impromptu mako appreciation day because I demand a say
Bolin is a sweet, good-natured, enthusiastic, bold, and optimistic young man who puts others at ease and makes them feel good about themselves; he reacts with charm and friendliness rather than anger and fear; he is playful and inventive and compassionate, even when he is clearly in a worse-off position; in short Bolin is a cheerful young man who is so without bitterness and so full of a genuine joie de vivre that you’d never guess he’d been homeless and orphaned since the tender age of 6.
Because Mako took care of him.
forget mama!mako, forget mermako, forget mashion, forget super!angsty!mako
the only mako i care about is super!dweeby!dork!mako
ppl who admit mako’s struggled to simply survive his entire life to get where he is then complain about him “getting the girl/job/whatever” “too easily”
i really like republic city hustle ok
