Man this was hard to watch.
The poison was effectively designed to torture Korra into using the Avatar State to save herself, and she knew it. And so she fought with every fiber of her being to resist that torture, even knowing that the best she could hope for was to die without entering the Avatar State.
In that last image, she looks so, so exhausted… but she’s still fighting, refusing to give in to her body’s desire to protect itself or Raava’s desire to protect her. If she has to die, she wants to die on her terms.
It’s a really heavy scene, and the animation pulls no punches. I feel terrible that she had to go through that. =(
so here’s what happened,
apparently someone had hacked and deleted her accounts. so yes we are kyhu-less for the time being
but don’t freak out. she’ll be back on here as soon as she can and I’ll keep you all updated on whats happening
spread this news around! thank you!
