The Legend of Korra just became LEGENDARY…

For those of you who loved Avatar: The Last Airbender (the animated series, NOT THE CRAPPY MOVIE) it was a bit hard to shift gears for The Legend of Korra – same world, same setting but moved almost a hundred years into the future and a whole new set of characters, different conflicts and a whole new twist on things…

… and the finale proved this series just moved beyond just a sequel into legendary territory.

First, the mandatory spoiler alert – do NOT read further if you haven’t seen the finale or am interested in not being spoiled for the series.

Okay. Enough. Let’s start with the final image, courtesy of a faboo article on Vanity Fair: How a NIckelodeon Cartoon became one of the Most Powerful, Subversive Shows of 2014.

Yeah. This.

Yes. This.

Two women of color, strong tough believable and vulnerable women together.

It is a wonderful time to be alive and be able to see something like this. As a white straight woman I celebrate the fact that this is happening, has happened and hopefully will continue to keep on happening to keep the true love stories going.

And, for the record, I’d totally switch teams to be with either two of them.
