There’s a subtle underlying trend in Book 3’s finale that seems to get overlooked due to the fact that so many people other than Korra are responsible for the victory over the Red Lotus — almost everything that happens is at least an indirect result of Korra’s actions.

Think about Korra’s necessary allies for a moment: Mako, Bolin, and Asami; Tonraq; Lin, Suyin, and the Metal Clan; Kai; Jinora and the airbenders.  Every single one of them is someone who Korra helped grow into the sort of person who could do what needed to be done to achieve victory.  Team Avatar might have the weakest ties, but even there, Korra helped Mako rediscover his inner stability (lightning), Bolin discover his confidence (lavabending), and Asami grow from an acquaintance into a close confidant.

The other characters grew in even more obvious ways. 

Tonraq learned to trust Korra, and he proved vital on Laghima’s Peak because he was able to fight alongside her as an equal.

Lin and Su’s reconciliation — which probably wouldn’t have happened if Korra hadn’t pushed the issue, and definitely wouldn’t have happened if Opal wasn’t an airbender — allowed them to work together to take down P’li.

Korra’s own relationship with Su meant that she had a whole bunch of Metal Clan allies, one of whom ended up saving Tonraq’s life.

Kai went from a selfish thief to someone completely willing to throw away his own life to allow the airbenders to escape because of Korra’s offer of unearned trust, and his attempted sacrifice put him in a position to lead the rest of her allies to where they needed to go to help her.

Jinora’s growth was largely dependent on her relationship with Korra in Book 2, and she wouldn’t have even been around had Korra not done everything in her power to save her from Unalaq.

The majority of the airbenders were people who Korra had freed from the Earth Queen’s captivity.  Even Opal was freed from her fear of disappointing her mother by leaving due to the effects of Korra’s visit to the Metal Clan.

In other words, the Book 3 finale is one giant exploration of the idea Iroh introduced in A New Spiritual Age — “Sometimes the best way to solve your own problems is to help someone else.”  (This would make an interesting gifset, actually)  Korra might not have been able to defeat the Red Lotus on her own, but the good that she did for others ended up being the key to the Red Lotus’ defeat.

Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”

"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.

After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.

[…]

She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.

You should read this Rolling Stones piece on Queer kids getting kicked out by their religious parents. And remember it.  (via fuckyeahdiomedes)

"Tragically, every step forward for the gay-rights movement creates a false hope of acceptance for certain youth, and therefore a swelling of the homeless-youth population.

"The summer that marriage equality passed in New York, we saw the number of homeless kids looking for shelter go up 40 percent," says Carl Siciliano, founder of the Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to homeless LGBT youth."

"One of the most interesting things about Elizabeth Turner was her Kiss of Death. Throughout the trilogy, all of the men she locked lips with has died - including Sao Feng in At World’s End, and (if you want to be petty about it) her father, Weatherby Swann. Usually they would die moments after kissing her for the first time. This excludes Will Turner who has kissed her several times before and beat the odds every time. However, even he succumbed to her kiss and died as well minutes after the two were hastily married by Barbossa.

This is most likely a just coincidence and not something that was intentional, but years later it’s still fun to point out to friends and watch a dawn of realization hit their face when they realize that Pirate Queen Elizabeth may have also been the Grim Reaper.”

I feel like this entire scene had really good moments. They were small and unnoticeable if you were paying attention to the whole arc of the episode rather than the small moments. We’ve been doing commentaries all day of the small moments and I really wanted to touch base on this one. We’ve seen so much interaction between these two from their intimate talk before going off to fight, their father-daughter fighting tag team, and then him watching her battle Zaheer. What pains me to think about is how much I think Tonraq thinks he’s let down Korra as well. Whether she’s the Avatar or not, she’s still his child. She’s still his one and only pride and joy. He’s almost lost her on several life-threatening occasions but all those times before have never beat her down so far. And now, I would imagine that he wants to be there for her. It kills me to think about his scene with her when he was trying to wake her up. And when she does, he tells her he’s never going to let her go again. What Tonraq must be thinking is that he’s let her down. And she probably thinks she’s let him down after he’s told her how proud he is.
I love this part because he comes over to her and kneels in front of her, telling her how beautiful she is. We can see that she’s got the bags under her eyes - that she’s suffering from her poisoning, from depressing, or from nightmares. Whatever the case, she is his shining little girl no matter what. And in the frame before this, she doesn’t have that inkling of a smile on her face. But here…she has a smile. They both do. And for a moment, they look at each other and have this incredibly endearing relationship that kills me.
I imagine that when she thinks about home, she thinks about him most especially (not that I don’t give Senna credit as well, I just wish her relationship with Korra was more intimate than what is shown).

This scene had me in tears.
