How a minute can
last a lifetime"

Full moon at Ember Island
Together as one,
mind, body, and soul"

Cause you're all I want,
You're all I need,
You're everything,

The Legend of Korra

Smoke And Mirrors is an elaborated Korrasami-ending of "The Last Stand". While I love the fact that Korrasami is canon, I was a bit confused as to how it happened, their "getting together" being portrayed way too subtle, especially when compared to the Kataang-ending Avatar: The Last Airbender knew. As such, I did what I did with A Minute and rewrote the ending of the finale to put more emphasis on the budding relation while staying as close to what happened in the series as possible. The chapters will alternate between Korra and Asami's point of view.

Plot Edit

Falling in love is amazing, most people can agree to that. People also often say that "it is better to have loved and lost, then to have never loved at all". But what if you fell in love with your best friend? If it works out, it can be the best thing that ever happened to you. But what if it doesn't? How do you know it is worth the risk to potentially break your friendship?

Trivia Edit

  • The name of this fanon, Smoke and Mirrors is an album of the American rockband Lifehouse. All chapter titles are songs from that album, with the exception of "Hanging By A Moment". Each song more or less accompanies the atmosphere of that particular chapter.

  • If someone has any good ideas/suggestions for cover art for the fanon overall and the separate chapters, feel free to let me know!
  • This story was August 2016's featured fanon article thanks to Bomochu's nomination.
