Fandumb (Original Webcomic): Fandumb #27: The Presequel Seprequel Sequel by Neodusk

A bit tardy for last week's Korra comic. And look at this--it's not even remotely funny. I wanted to try doing something a bit different this time, just on a whim. I promise I'll try to be funny again for the next one. This is based on a scene from Book 3 Episode 11, "The Ultimatum".

EDIT: Yeah, so, just in case anyone was wondering, the comic isn't really supposed to be funny (at least, that wasn't its main goal). My aim was more sentimental. But, uh, I guess if you did find it hilarious, more power to you. So long as you enjoyed it.

Please comment and enjoy.

KORRA FINALE SPOILERS. DO NOT LOOK AT OR CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW UNLESS YOU'VE FINISHED WATCHING THE LAST EPISODE OF BOOK 4 (or simply don't care).

TURN AWAY IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED IT.

SERIOUSLY.

I MEAN IT.

OKAY, FINE, DON'T BLAME ME IF SOMETHING IS SPOILED.

To those of you who chose to interpret the ending differently or saw it as ambiguous, the Word of God(s) has come to say "This is what it was, is, and forever shall be."

But I think the majority of us were on the same page with what that final scene meant and how wonderful (and validating to many people's lives) it was. And for us I say: THREE CHEERS!

UPDATE:

Because of a couple comments I've seen around (the web, my comics, this journal) that seem to take some issue with the ending, saying they either just didn't like the political agenda to it or they don't like Korrasami or they'd prefer it be left open to interpretation, I'm just gonna leave my two cents here:

I don't think it was a mistake for them to give Korra that ending. And I don't think the creators confirming them as a couple was a mistake. I really, really don't. Whether it pleased everyone (whether people were for Korrasami or Makorra or Bomakorzin what have you), this was confirmation that was needed. Because what they did, the ending they chose, doesn't simply operate on the level of entertainment or character development or even theme. It held much, much greater value than that.

It was a socially, politically driven move that, while maybe it soured a few people's enjoyment of the last few moments, gave indescribable joy and privilege to many others. Not just Korrasami shippers, but people far more numerous and diverse. A close friend of mine (who is gay) found the ending to this show incredibly validating. It's just not something you often see in mass media (and especially not depicted as seriously as a straight romance or without being overly sexualized. And ESPECIALLY not in a family show). I've seen other similar remarks around the web, as well.

You don't even have to be a Korrasami supporter to see the wonder in that ending. I've seen plenty of people saying they didn't anticipate them as a couple or didn't even like Korrasami, but knew what that ending meant, and why it was wonderful. Or even how it was a nice ending to the show in and of itself.

I can see why people would be upset with the creators slapping that ending on there and then following up with that confirmation, but I think I have to say, you just gotta take one for the team. Maybe you're even gay or bi (or one of the many other sexualities in this world) and didn't find it very good. You can't please everyone. Even the ending of ATLA showed us that (there are still people saying Aang should've killed Ozai). But it wouldn't have meant nearly as much to the people the ending was in service to if the creators had left it ambiguous.

This may sound like an overstatement, but I really think what they did was bigger than you or me or even than the whole fanbase of Korrasami shippers out there. For people who take issue with them having a political/social agenda with their show, I don't know what to say. I think that's just part of the Avatar universe. It's always been a part of it, even from the Last Airbender. If they didn't concretize what was going on in that final scene, it would've been like Avatar ending with it as ambiguous whether or not Aang killed Ozai. No. They made a statement that they felt needed to be made. And, however slightly, I think the world will be better for it.


Like the creators said, it's all about equality and balance to them. And I think it'd be an understatement to say that this world, the one we live in, is a bit out of balance. Ending it with a confirmed same sex couple is their way of tipping it juuuuuust a little bit in the right direction. If you want to argue about whether it made a good ending as a story, that's another thing altogether. And it's a complaint I find totally valid. But this is just one of those cases where I think we need to understand what they did, why they did it, and, if not support it, then at least not condemn them.

As Tenzin said to Korra in the first episode of Book 3: "Your responsibility is to bring balance to the entire world, and that means no matter what you do, some people are not going to be happy about it...On the other hand, some people will be very happy."

I think we should be happy for those people. Peace out.

Favorite series. Comic, manga, TV, film, game, or otherwise. You can give more than one.

Only on an incredibly surface level. And not in comic form. Except this one time at a con.

I really liked the comic about How Book 3 Changed Korra. it makes so much sense. I cut Korra some slack when I first saw her, but most people just hated her then. now I just tell people to see that comic you made to help make more sense to why we shouldn't hate on her so much. :D

anyway, keep up the good work man! :)

Thanks. I'd actually like to revisit some of the things I talked about in that comic someday, because after going through some responses, I think I need to rethink and revise some of the points I made. Still, I'm glad you found it useful.
