“Mmm, this is the best tasting street gruel I’ve ever had! Seriously!”
Alright, now that all my Makorra shipper feelings are out of the way, I want to get to what is really important to me in these clips.
The brothers and by extension the living conditions of the people underground.
Now most of you, might look at this part and say “Oh Bolin you’re so precious.” “Oh Bolin, you’re so funny!”
No. This…this I believe that this is the least comical thing he’s said since episode four. Do any of you remember where the fabulous bending brothers were before they were fabulous? Right where Gommu is:
On the streets.
In fact I think that this year is the first year which they were not on the streets, if my assumption is correct then this scene is not unfamiliar to them in the least bit. I would be so impressed with Bryke if it was the bro’s who led the krew down here because that is where they used to live. I would even applaud them for this because it would be the only consistency the brothers have. Of course because I say this it probably wont happen and Gommu probably finds them shortly after episode 10’s ending and will be turned into a ”wtf GOMMU WHERE’D YOU COME FROM LOL” comedy scene…but wouldn’t it be nice?
Now lets look back at this quote. This is Bolin being polite of course, but there is such a layer of depth underneath it. They lived on the streets for most of their lives, meaning they probably had to eat food like this day in and day out with maybe some stale bread on good days. This isn’t just Bolin cracking a joke, this is him telling a bit of their story. He is being sincere. He continues to eat this while Asami throws it up because he knows.
He knows how little food there is to spare in the real world, and he would never in a million years pass it up. Mako probably taught him if he wanted to survive then that was what they had to eat so he did. That’s just how their life was. Heck even Pabu knows better, because he was used to it too!
I understand Asami had a cushy life with fancy chefs and in no way is this lifestyle wrong. But that sort of attitude is not a luxury Bolin or Mako can afford they never could. So of course they are going to continue eating, they knew what it was the second they sat down. They knew what they had to do to survive then and just because they lived a better life for a year doesn’t mean they threw their survival skills to the wind, they just adapted, and now they’re adapting back.
I really hope this is what Bryke had in mind when writing this down, and that I’m not looking too much into this. Because this little scene, though small and perhaps insignificant to shipping is important to me and all bromotional fans out there.
Long live the bro’s development and lifestyle.
Long live the bromotions.
More Bolin and with colours!
Get in my bed
THOSE. MUSCLES. UNF.
“Bolin seriously needs to become a much more developed character. It seems he’s getting less I mean even the Airbender kids (ep 10) and Tahno (ep 7) displayed more character development than him! I LOVE Bolin, but I’d like to see him as more than just an earthbending joke-machine.”
Yes please thank you. Like, why did he barely say ANYTHING in yesterday’s episode? I was so bummed.
This is a must post for every Korra Saturday.
Tagging the new episode posts as ‘LOK spoilers’ again!
“…Your hair looks real pretty like that, by the way.”
“Didn’t I just tell you to stop talking?”
GUESS I DIDN’T NEED THOSE FEELINGS.
Finished! Parody lyrics are all thanks to the incredibly talented Noleen. The
not so incrediblesinging was done by me. This song was a tough one to sing with the rhythms and just a lot of other things I’m not going to go into.
But then again I’m not a man with swag running through his veins like Lou Bega. So I guess I can let it slide haha. Hope you enjoy it still!
Feel free to give these lyrics a shot too! :D
Mambo No. 5 [Avatar Fandom Style]
one two three four five
Everybody in the cabbage car come on let’s ride
To the noodle shop around the corner
The girls say they want cactus juice
But I really don’t wanna
Get quenched up like I did last week
Though the chaos that commenced was a real nice treat
Mix in Tahno, Mako, Asami and Korra
A bit of Bolin if you’re looking for something sweeter
Gotta hand it to the fandom, oh my lord
To me shipping is just like a sport
If it’s pleasing to the eyes
Then it’s all good to me
Ship it, please bring in the artists
A little bit of Makorra in my life,
A little bit of Masami on the side.
A little bit of Pemzin’s all I need,
A little bit of Linzin’s all I see.
A little bit of Howrra in the sun,
A little bit of Borra can’t go wrong.
A bit of Bolinora everyone,
A bit of Makorralin makes life so fun!
