Ask the goat (or feed it carrots).
Don’t jump ship, whatever you do.
We may have to get out our life preservers, swim, cling to the wreckage of our ship, build a submarine, etc., but DON’T JUMP SHIP.
More conversation under the cut. Feel free to read.
Okay. I digress. Borra means a lot to me. It was my first actual OTP (besides Kataang way after the show ended), and they’re just so damn cute together. It was… well, it was like perfection.
And then we met Mako.
*cue ominous music*
Ha, I’m not that pissed about meeting Mako, I’m FUCKING BATSHIT FURIOUS about his apparent display of mixed feelings.
If you don’t like a girl, then don’t go out with her in the first place. If you have a girlfriend, don’t kiss your pretty friend back when she tries to make out with you. If your brother runs off crying because you kissed his uber-crush, don’t say “I told you so”.
Borra shippers, you understand these above things, right? And I can’t really blame some of you for jumping ship - these are some of our darkest hours, guys; especially with Makorra looming over us, and the threat of pair the spares lurking in the background.
But guys, please - don’t jump ship when we need you the most. We need every single man (and woman) on board this ship right now, just to show that we’re still alive and afloat. I know that it seems sorta futile to jump back on Borra, but we need all hands on deck now, especially with Makorra most likely being canon for season 1.
And, get this - we still have a chance of being canon.
Bryke is unpredictable when it comes to this stuff. For all we know, season 2 could end up with Borra as the victor. Mako and Korra may realize that they have little in common, therefore realizing that they need to do some mulling over their relationship (which, I might add, is mostly built around lust).
Don’t give up, guys. I remember a few weeks ago, where we were one big, happy family. Let’s make sure that we’re that way FOREVER, okay guys?
So, guys, are you gonna stay on S.S. Borra with me?
