  • Title says it all. If you were in charge of the first two books of LOK, what would you have done differently?

    • I will debut that alien invasion and the dinosaurs within.

    • For the first book, I would have had Korra have to do some intellectual maneuvering in order to expose Amon rather than pretty much charging blindly into the fray. I'd also tweak Amon's character in the last half so that he doesn't simply call in the troops and invade, but rather rise to power through entirely legitimate means, then subsequently beefing up non-bender security in order to "contain the bending threat". This way Korra can't simply go in and beat him up to win, otherwise she would alienate a lot more people than she could afford to. Granted, Amon would still get kicked to the curb, but it would be after Korra and Co. had cleverly revealed his nature to the world instead of sheer luck exposing him.

      The second book I would basically make into two. The first would focus on the brewing tensions between North and South, with neither side necessarily being in the right in Korra's eyes. Nations get involved, Korra's diplomatic skills are put to the test, and a villain (Varric) is revealed to have orchestrated a lot of (but not all) the tensions to sell his and Asami's war machines. End scene involves Unalaq conversing with Vaatu (now simply a spirit of chaos rather than chaos and evil), talking about how the Avatar world is about to change forever.

      The second of the two arcs derived from book 2 would go more into the spiritual aspects, and is where the most edits are so bear with me. Unalaq would ask Korra to open the spirit portals in order to bring better balance to the world and hopefully prevent the previous international conflict. The southern portal is opened, but on the way to the north, Unalaq is discovered to be consorting with dark spirits, and Korra and Co. bail. Tenzin and Korra try to uncover why the spirits are acting the way they are and how Unalaq could be involved, but at some point Korra gets attacked by the spirit kraken like before. Cue Beginnings 1 & 2, except Vaatu isn't innately evil. He's more of an extreme devotee of "survival of the fittest", despising human civilization, believing it only to be a crutch for the weak and an encumbrance to the strong. He believes all the world, including humanity, should stay wild, always fighting with other creatures and spirits with their bare hands to achieve eventual perfection. Raava is also not necessarily good, as she is simply a spirit of order. At times she can exude something approximating righteousness, but other times she seems a bit authoritarian and iron fisted. Korra learns that Vaatu intends to return humanity to a very savage state, and races off to gather her forces to stop him. Since this is no longer necessarily a political issue, the other nations, namely the URN, rally to Korra's side and lay siege to Unalaq's spiritual stronghold in the North Pole. Battle ensues, and Unalaq ends up with most of the Krew at his mercy, and forces Korra to open the other portal. Korra opens the other portal, but then turns on Unalaq the second his attention is diverted. Unalaq gets KO'd, Korra rushes to close the portals, but finds that its too late. Vaatu is released, and nature/spirits begin to rapidly encroach into human settlements including Republic City. Vaatu and Unalaq become the Dark Avatar and Vaatu quickly overwhelms his host (who's last words were "this wasn't part of the deal!), and lays into Korra. Korra tries fighting him off in the Avatar State, but finds herself slowly being infected by UnaVaatu while grappling with him, destroying the past lives. Raava and Korra have a pep talk, achieve true unity against UnaVaatu's simple overwhelming of his host, and end up pacifying the chimaeric being. Cue Korra leaving the portals open and all that jazz for the next book.

    • hi long time lurker on this site but seeing this i decided to finally sign up.

      i would have done book 1 mostly the same with some changes similar to what the air nomad critic^^^^ suggested. but i would have changed book 2 a lot more.

      i would have started similarly haveing unlaq come down to the south for the glacial spirits festival but i would have had everyone come down a bit earlier. i would have had a flashback explaining why unalaq was the way he was. he could have been young a prodigy with spirits similar to Jinora but he get's lost in the spirit world and avatar Aang comes to save him. after seeing the wonders of the spirit world and meeting the spirit vatu who told (false) stories of a world before the avatar one where spirits and humans lived togethor Unalaq decides that is up to him to unite both worlds.


      maybe a few flashabacks showing the relationship between tonraq and unalaq after it was revealed korra was the avatar. so Unalak uses his story to convice Korra to help him and genuinly hopes to get her to open the portals not wanting power for himself. after his treachory is revealed and korra has opened the 1st portal he tries to explain how he did what he did to his brother for the right reasons. so a civil war starts this time korra and co stay to help before after a episode or 2 of raids against northern forces Tonraq comes to the conclusion that they cant win without help. and so team avatar go to republic city. so then everything happens like it did with a few glimpses of what's happening in the south maybe a battle between desna eska and tonraq. then eventually korra gets eaten by the whale and finds out about Ravva.


      Korra then goes to the find Tenzin, after a brief spiritual journey they head to republic city to get the rest of team avatar, raiko agrees to send 1 ship under Bumi in return for bolin saveing him. so then we get a look at Unalaq realiseing that he has no choice but to fuse with Vaatu if he is to achive his dream. so they then fight their way through the blockade and fight Unalaqs forces. Unalaq fuses with Vaatu and vaaatu begins to overwhelm him. then everything pretty much ends the same.

    • Well, I would make Raiko more responsible and willing to help Korra for Book 2. I don't have any objections for Book 1.

        Loading editor
    • I would first even out the episode (13 each), and I would keep the same events, but I would swap it around a bit to build up quicker and develop and conclude more smoother:

      Book 1: Air Episode 1: More time spent with Korra learning a little from Tenzin at the Southern compound, then he has to leave, which prompts her to accompany him, due to her convincing him it's best. But Tenzin inquires her that Republic City cannot know she's the Avatar yet.

      Episode 2: Arrives in Republic City, and Tenzin has to go straight to the meeting. Explores republic city and runs into Mako and Bolin (who are not probenders, but still thieves), get caught in the middle of a fight with a triad. All get arrested, meet Lin (know very little at this point), Tenzin bails them all (Korra persuading him to let the other two off as they figured out she's the Avatar and could tell other people.) Silhouette Amon who knows the Avatar is in the City.

      Episode 3: They form a probending team to repay Tenzin for bail, and because they worked well together. Korra stresses at both training exercises because she cannot move through the doors (Tenzin), and because she cannot properly dodge attacks (Mako and Bolin). She gest stressed at both trainings until she talks with Pema. She tells her about adapting with what you know, which then leads to Korra using airbending movements as a form of dodging which applies to both situation. Korra gets a flashback preview of Aang when she makes contact with Tenzin.

      Episode 4: The team (named the Fire Ferrets) try to sign up, but cannot as they have no money to pay for the competition (an amateurs competition in which the winners play the reigning champions for the prize money). Korra takes a day off, and finds Naga snuck aboard a ship in the harbour and reunites (she couldn't ride on Oogi with Korra). Mako gets a job, but then runs into Asami (the whole dinner thing happens, won't go into detail) Bolin tries to get money (same thing happens). Mako arrives late from dinner, but changes the question when Bolin doesn't return. They track him down to Pabu. (same thing happens to the end.)

      Episode 5: Mako takes Korra and Bolin to meet Asami and her father Hiroshi. He agrees to sponsor the team. Korra is confused how Mako managed to arrange it, but Mako doesn't say anything. They meet Tarrlok (who doesn't reveal he's a waterbender, and appears as a Equalist sympathiser), but he already works out that Korra is the Avatar, but promises not to make the knowledge public. He instead berates her in private for not doing her duty and tells her she should look up her own history (She also gest a flashback preview of Yakone from Tarrlok). Korra argues, but actually takes his advice. She goes to Aang Memorial island, but is ambushed by Amon (same thing happens).

      Episode 6: The tournament starts; they start out ok, but realise they need to get better despite winning. Asami and Mako embrace in front of Korra, which makes her jealous. (same thing happens w/ Bolin and Korra, the whole episode that happens). The team make up after being at their throats and make it further.

      Episode 7: The Equalists start a protest which led to a fight that is being cleaned up by the police as Korra goes by. She meets Lin again, and then realises she's Toph's daughter. Lin doesn't want anything to don with Korra. Korra gets a brief flashback of Toph from Lin. The Fire Ferrets win another game and are in the finals. They stay to watch the current champions, The White Falls Wolfbats play, but are shocked as they win almost immediately, whoich prompts them to train even harder. Another riot breaks out, Korra tries to help out, but the police arrive and they take care of it. Amon leaves a message on the radio saying he will change the world forever.

      Episode 8: Korra begins to suspect Tarrlok as both he and Amon know she's the Avatar and goes to confront him. Tarrlok inadvertidly reveals that he is a waterbender, and later a bloodbender and Kidnaps Korra. (same thing happens after that, except Tarrlok is just immobilised and kidnapped by Amon).

      Episode 9: Amon says he'll strike the finals, which the council try to cancel, but Korra attempts to protest, but Lin ultimately convinces them that she'll cover the stadium with guards. Korra realises the tension between Tenzion and Lin (same thing). The finals arrive, and the FF realise the WB are cheaters (same thing happens, but simultaneously, the council members are being captured one-by-one as punishment for not applying to his demands.) The WB eventually win, but the Amon springs his trap and Tenzin is captured. Amon bloodbends the WB after a few seconds of combat, then publicly bloodbends the four council members, taking Tenzin with him.

      Episode 10: Lin assigns the police on full alert, but stations herself on air temple island to protect Tenzin's family. Cabbage Corp is belived to be supplying the equalist (same thing happens), but Korra finds clues that lead her to presume Hiroshi to be the supplier. She goes to Lin, who thinks she is right (ambush happens, same outcome minus Tenzin). Tenzin meanwhile is in a cage with the other council members (but the only one still with bending), Raiko (the URN representative and nonbender) is helped to escape by Tenzin, in which he calls back the United Forces armies from patrol.

      Episode 11: With Lin's police career suspended, she and the white lotus remain on air temple island, while the Equalists finally strike the city. General Iroh arrives, but the new biplanes destroy the fleet. He is saved by Korra and is brought to the island. Amon then declares that he has control and proceeds to attack air temple island (same outcome minus Tenzin) Lin is captured, bloodbent. Tenzin's family eventually captured. Korra and remaining allies driven underground.

      Episode 12: Iroh makes plans to take out the major points so that the second division can safely reach the harbour and free the city. (Same plans happen w/ Iroh, Bolin and Asami). Korra and Mako travel to the naval blockade, where they confront the Lieutenant. After a lengthily battle, Korra reveals to him she's the Avatar, and cuts down the chain in the harbour. They then travel to Amon's meeting place, and reach Tarrlok, he explains their back stories and they set out to find Amon. Commander Bumi arrives with threat averted.

      Episode 13: With the remainder of the United Forces back, Raiko orders an immeadiate assault on the major strongholds. Korra and Mako arrive to see Amon about to bloodbend Tenzin's family. Korra interrupts and reveals to the crowd she is the Avatar and reveals Amon as a bender (which again he rebukes.) The place is assaulted and Amon escapes. Tenzin rescues his family, and sees Rohan for the first time. The equalists make a final stand, just as the commanders go after Amon, but Amon strikes and decides to end them permanently. Korra in avertedly triggers the Avatar States and she and Mako chase Amon. (lieutenant is killed when he discovers Amons bending). Amon takes Korra bending, and threatens Mako, which unlocks Korra's airbending. Amon is revealed a fraud and escapes. (same things occur, except Korra doesn't get her bending back). Korra then publicly announces she is the Avatar, in which the message reaches Unalaq, who says the time has finally come.

      Book 2: Spirits Episode 1: Raiko is now the elected president of the URN, and Korra is the publicly known Avatar, only capable of airbending. Lin works a cop without her bending and many people still have to adjust without their bending. The southern festival arrives so she and her allies go to the Southern Tribe. They meet Unalaq (who is more of an ally than a deliberate villain) and same things occur in the episode.

      Episode 2: Korra agrees to open the southern portal, hears about her father and uncles falling out, and who kept her in the compound. (same old stuff.) Unalaq has an attempted assassination, and he blames Tonraq and several important southern water tribesmen. Korra breaks them out and they declare civil war. Korra and krew go back to republic city with Varrik.

      Episode 3: Korra goes to Raiko, he won't help. Goes to Iroh, but Raiko orders no. Iroh mentions that she could always get support from his mother and grandfather in the Fire Nation. Tenzin travels with his siblings (same events happen per episode). The southern cultural centre is blown up and Korra and Mako have a falling out on who's responsible. Bolin is in the movers with Varrik

      Episode 4: Korra tries to get some support, but no one takes her seriously because she can only bend one element. Korra talks with her past lives to see what she should do; but only finds that she can only really communicate with Aang, who says that she should try and talk to both sides, but Korra says it's too late. Aang says that she should try and find another way than the easy way. Korra then takes Iroh's advise and tries to see Zuko, but (same thing happens and she winds up on an island.)

      Episode 5: Korra wakes up in the company of sages of all cultures (water, earth and fire.) She is then put through the test to see how far she is willing to go, which in the end proves that she will do only what is necessary whenever necessary. Mako further investigates, but soon starts moving in closer on Varrik. 1st mover goes public. Unalaq then goes into the spirit world via the portal and tries to break Vaatu.

      Episode 6: Korra wakes up inflicted with pain (due to Vaatu attempting to break out), and is placed in the spiritual pool. She relives Wan's life.(same events).

      Episode 7: (part 2 on Wan's life concludes.) Korra remerges knoing what to do. She travels off, now re-equipped with her bending as she relearnt it with Wan's training and the spirit water's influence bleeding into her. She goes to catch up to Tenzin.

      Episode 8: Mako attempts to set a trap, but is stitched up and eventually arrested. Varrik saves Asami's company, at the price of control. Bolin becomes a star. Korra catches up with Tenzin's family to tell him what she knows. Unalaq converses with Vaatu about their plans.

      Episode 9: Korra and Tenzin agree that not opening the second portal will prevent Vaatu from being released. However, Jinora ends up finding a way into the spirit world. Korra goes in to chase her (same happens, which leads to Korra opening the second portal.)

      Episode 10: Korra returns revealing that they need to act now, and go back to Republic City. Raiko is attacked during premiere of third pat, Varrik captures and Mako released. They plan to assault Unalaq.

      Episode 11: (same events occur with the attack on the Southern Portal. Ending with them entering the portal)

      Episode 12: (same events occur, except:) Unalaq reveals that the world has been out of balance for too long and that Vaatu will help give him the power to put right what Wan didn't, however Vaatu double crosses him and takes contirl of his body. Unalaq resisits, but Vaatu manages to merge them both. The Dark Avatar is created (but appearing fully as UnaVaatu with Vaatu in control.) Korra loses to Vaatu who kills Raava and her connection to the Avatar Cycle, then goes to attack Republic City.

      Episode 13: Vaatu attacks Republic City despite the efforts of the United Forces. Lin gets her bending back from Harmonic Convergence, and uses it to save the presidents life from the falling airship. Spirit vines grip the city. Korra is restored and climbs into the spirit tree where Tenzin tells her about all the strife in every past life and how it has led to this. Using the natural sprit energies of the Tree, Korra's body becomes entirely spiritual energy and she follows after Vaatu. (same events occur) Korra beats Vaatu and purifies him, Unalaq disappears wth him saying "Thank you." (same events follow.) Up on a mountain, Zaheer discovers that he can airbend, and smiles while reciting Laghima's poem.

    • Using the basis of the two books and not going on a very radical departure, I'd agree with most of TANC version but I'd play more on what was going on within book 2 and some of the themes that it failed to pull off effectively. I'd focus on Aang in book 2 in three different ways to the major characters: as the previous Avatar for Korra, as a father to Tenzin, and as a spiritual teacher to Unalaq. The idea is that each part changes our previous perception of Aang and the shift from Unalaq to a plain villain to someone more in the middle, or at least complex.

      There would be a play on Korra's mentalty towards the beginning of the book. Having her very self-confident and restless after the victory in book 1, I'd make it the sole reason why she fails (utterly) during anything between the water tribes. Maybe even an undercurrent that she personally blames herself for anyone injured or killed during the fighting. It would also work towards the idea that she has no real idea of the world outside of RC nor the intricacies of governments, deplomacy, or tact.

      I'd definitely change the Raava/Vaatu relationship to the basic yin and yang, rather than the radical shift presented in book 2. I'd also change up Beginnings and introduce the idea that Wan finds some way to have a temporary balance between the two forces. That solution would also play a part in the creation of the Avatar and the primarly idea of balance (the prefered point between two opposing forces). On a side note to that, Korra would have an increased interaction with Wan.

      I'd also focus on more side effects for the actions of the other characters. If Asami still goes with Varrik because she needed the money, I'd have her pay for it before the end. Something like almost breaking with the rest of the Team or seeing the result of her selling weapons.

    • Book 1? Not much different. Maybe do a bit more character work on Mako and Bolin. Maybe provide some backstory on Amon between when he ran away from home and we first see him in the series.

      Book 2? Develop Unalaq into something more than a one-dimensional villain who does evil for evil's sake, include more Lin, find something to do with Asami, and split it into two books, one focusing on the Civil War and the second focusing on the conflict with Unalaq, Vaatu and the Dark Spirits. "Beginnings" is a made-for-TV movie that airs between the two.

        Loading editor
    • All books would be longer (16-20 episodes).  More character development; less bitter, petty drama unless there were to be repercussions for it.  In fact, if it was between having a discrete and self-contained arc for each book and there being believable repercussions, I'd go with the latter.

      I'd try to work the unfortunate implications out of the Equalist arc, such as by actually addressing the (canonical) marginalization of nonbenders.

      If Mako were to be anyone's love interest at all, I'd actually attempt to make him lovable or interesting.  Tribute character or no, I wouldn't pamper him.  (Korra, in particular, would definitely not be getting undermined or invalidated on his behalf.)

      Bolin and Asami wouldn't get undeservedly slapped around by the narrative to such a degree, or sidelined for flimsy reasons.

      More character development overall.

      Mothers would be relevant.

      Much as I liked the "Beginnings" arc, I think I'd retool it to some degree.  (And I like the idea of it being a separate made-for-TV movie.)

      ...hell, come to think of it, there are probably things that I'd re-work about Book 3.  I'm going to say "Zaheer wouldn't have survived the finale, and Jinora would have saved Kai's butt more often than the reverse" and leave it at that.

    • If I was in charge, I will add the Alien Invasion in the story. Then, do the Time Travel that send Korra and her friends back into the time before the first Humans will evolved.

        Loading editor
    • Ok so for the first book it is well known that Asami would have been an equalist spy and I personally love this idea. It could have really made her a more indepth character than she already is and would have added a more tense dynamic and would have probably drawn away from the stupid love triangle. 

      I think that in book 2 Bolin and Asami's storylines were poor. I don't know what I'd get them to do but I'm sure I could figure something out.

      But tbh I haven't got much to complain and change.

        Loading editor
    • If I were in charge to run the first two episodes differently, I'd give each Book more episodes, to start. I want to know more about the characters outside of battle mode, and outside of solving-the-mystery, saving-the-day mode. Having fun, but also character development. Not everything Aang and Katara and Sokka and Toph did was relevant directly to helping Aang master all four elements, and I appreciated that so much. Having some extra bits and pieces in between would have given the Krew time to be teased out, I think, so we wouldn't run into the problem of Korra's deus-ex-machina airbending powers, and the like.

      Then, I would give Asami more relevance to the situation. At first, she sort of started off as just the third girl to complete Mako and Korra's "Archie-Betty-and-Veronica" love-triangle. It wasn't necessarily a bad thing to play out, but the way they did it was ham-handed, and it made Asami look useless, and Mako look like a jerk (an error which has caused Mako's reputation to still sort of suffer among fans until this day).

      And Bolin. I like him very much, but he was dreadfully underused in the first two books. I mean, if anybody was supposed to get creative and show-off-y using their powers (aside from Korra), I think it'd be him. We already saw that he likes appreciation and adoration (from his time in the movers), so I'd give him more lines, and make his out-of-arena bending way less controlled and refined. More dynamic. Not super-duper-powerful like Toph, and not even so unrefined and unrestrained like Korra, but definitely more creative and attention-grabbing.

      And among the fluff episodes (of which ATLA, I think we'll all agree, had just the right amount), Book 2: Spirits should have featured at least one possession. Not a cutesy quick little glimpse like with "Beginnings", but if they wanted to introduce dark spirits, SHOW just how dark they are. Not only would it increase the reason why humans would not necessarily be happy to have the spirits in their world, but it'd make Unalaq appear that much more malevolent, when it's revealed that he's behind it all.

      And among the spirits they run into, I'd bring up some old folks the Gaang has already encountered. I was so happy to see Wan Shi Tong show up again, in Spirits (even though he was sort of crankier than usual). And I would have loved to see not only Hei Bai, but also Koh the Face Stealer, and Princess Yue. Perhaps the Painted Lady, the Blue Spirit (if Zuko's costume was based on an actual Avatar-World spirit) or even one from the comics. Since it was titled Spirits, I was sort of expecting a buttload of familiar ones to pop up, so while not incredibly necessary to the overall plot of Unalaq's plot, that was a letdown.

    • I would probably keep things in book one, for the most part, the same. Except to make the rules of bending, blodd bending that is, I would make it only possible at night without the full moon but no one would be able to do it during the day.

      Book two, I would've screen tested that season first so I could get the questions that we ask today that didn't really clarify some things. I would then go back and make sure to adjust and answer those questions within the season. But I know I would have changed how book 2 ended. No Jinora light and no cosmic energy for Korra

    • Too many older spirits might have been confusing to people who didn't see the original series. Although LoK is something of a continuation of the first series, it can (and should) be seen as it's own series. But, yes, there should have been more spirits in the book.

    • Apparently, she was from a joke comic that's not considered canon.  Alongside a cookiebender.

      Oh, well.  Still, liking the "fewer Red Lotus deaths" thing.  Personally, I'd have had Zaheer, if anyone, die—or get Fogged—and have the fates of the other three left ambiguous (albeit with the implication that with Zaheer out of the picture, they wouldn't be bouncing back any time soon, if ever).

    • Book 1

      1. When Korra was in the metal box, I would have had her consider Metal bending her way out.

      2. I would have Bolin act serious in in predicaments

      3. I would have had Korra cummnictae with Raava at least once in book 3

      4. I would have made Unalaq more powerful, or at least make him look more powerful. Its implied in their fight that the two Avatars are eqaully matched, depsite Unalaq only having water bending IMO, the idea of him being able to go toe-to-toe with Korra, a fully realised Avatar bugs me. I would have made his water bending more poweful and destructive and would have given him the ability to shoot energy beams.

      5. If I knew that there would be a Book 2, I would have Korra connect with Aang, like she does and use the AS. But, I would have had her stuggling to eneter the AS in book 2 and learning how to activate it.

    • I would at least have made Book 1 longer to properly address the possibility of a non-bending avatar after Amon severed Korra's bending. At the end she would have eventually found a way to get her bending back (or not).

    • I really don't think this question can be properly addressed at this time, because of things like this:

      1. When Korra was in the metal box, I would have had her consider Metal bending her way out.

      If Korra had learned Metalbending there, then it would have changed the plot in Book 3. We don't really know, some of these complaints may be addressed further on.

      There's also a difference between what I would do at the time, what I would change in hindsight, & what I would do if I were an executive. The answer to the latter is "probably nothing, because nobody likes a meddling executive."

    • They should do about the robots trying to take over the world and destroy all life forms. Because the robots see all life forms are have emotions that can lead them to do many terrible things.

      That would be mean Korra need to learn the metalbending so she can defeat them. And of course, the robots can use all primary bendings. Different by the colors of them.

      Red bends Fire, Blue bends  Water, Green bends Earth, Orange bends Air.

    • I've done something like this before  but here goes:

      The first thing I'd do is make the show longer, like the same length of episodes per season as ATLA. The mini-series format is the reason for rushed stories, lack of character development, and all the other things the first two seasons got criticised for.

      Story wise:

      1. "welcome to Republic City"  

      Roughly the same but we get to see Kya at the South Pole as Korra's co waterbending teacher alongside Katara and a bit of teasing about the way she beat up Tenzin like in Book 2. When Korra gets to Republic City, she meets Bolin, who is raising money with Pabu to help pay for groceries. They stike up a friendship and Bolin gets a crush on her without finding out exactly who is. She later fights the Triads like normal but also runs into some Equalist chi-blockers as well. They warn her to stay out of their affairs and that her time is almost over. The rest goes as usual.

      2. "Leaf in the wind"

      Also roughly the same except Bolin and Korra know each other already and we see what happened to Hasook in a quick scene at the end where Chi-blockers take him to Amon, who says he will be the first to witness "the revealation." We then cut to silhouttes of Amon doing something without revealing exactly what.

      3. "Revealation" 

      Once again, roughly the same except no Makorra hints and more Bolin/Korra hints. We also get closure on Hasook.

      4. "Voice in the night"

      This version gives us more insight into WHY Korra's afraid and how much she feels her bending defines her and her Avatar Status. Tenzin helps her realize there is more to her. We also get more Bolin/Korra hints and more focus on the taskforce instead of the Masami date. Also, Young Adult Katara appears in Korra's visions.

      5. "insert title here"

      Korra decides to learn more martial arts in order to lessen her dependence on her bending. She meets Asami at the dojo and a friendship forms. It turns out later that the Dojo is used to train Equalist and the sensei is the Lieuteanant. Korra is able to use her new skills to beat the Equalists in the end, reaffirming her confidence in herself and learning a bit more about life from a non-bender's perspective. The episode ends with Asami revealing she's rich and offers to sponsor the Fire Ferrets.

      6. "insert title here"

      Korra has improved in her air bending exercises, but still lacks the patience and discipline needed to actually bend air. She laments about the need for progress, leading to an argument about traditions and the old fashioned things. Later, she and her friends meet Hiroshi Sato, Asami's father, and learn about some of his latest gear. Among these inventions are special devices meant to replicate the four bending arts, including air. Korra decides to steal the later in a moment of poor judgement and cheats in her training, earning undeserved praise from Tenzin and feeling guilty. Equalists later take Hiroshi's other weapons for their own and Korra is forced to be patient enough to air bend on her own for the first time. She later apoligises for the deception and recounciles with Tenzin, who punishes her, but also expresses pride in her slow and steady advancement. In the end, it's shown that Hiroshi is in league with the Equalists and made the weapons for them, while hinting at the development of the shock gloves and mecha tank. 

      7.  "Spirit of Competition"

      This gets heavy retooling. Korra doesn't worry about Mako at all but Pema does give her a story that inspres her not to let Bolin get away. Mako also approves of Bolin and Korra but warms him to keep their relationship outside the ring.Korra asks Bolin out, they do all the stuff from the real episode, and have a great time. Korra gets jealous of one of Bo's fangirls however and retaliates by flirting with a male fam This causes a rift between the two as they attempt to outdo one another on a series of dates with their admiriers. Their teamwork in the ring suffers as a result, and they almost lose the semi-finals. They recouncil in the end, win the match, and agree to remain friends until the finals end. We also get a scene of Amon reading about their victory and deciding to strike at the Arena.

      8. "And the Winner is..."

      Basically the same except the Wolfbats don't get recongnised as cheaters by the crowd until Amon exposes them and Tahno doesn't get equalised.  We also see Korra use air bending in the final battle.

      9. "the aftermath"

      Basically the same except Tahno apoligises for the trouble he caused and vows to get Amon himself before leaving. There's also no talk of jealousy from Mako and we instead focus on korra and Asami's friendship, which is strained by Korra's accusaions until the end.

      10. "Turf War" part 1

      Sort of like "when Extremes meet" at the start. We get tarrlok making plans to reform his task force, firing Lin, and insulting Korra about her slow progress with air bending but along with this and her visions, the Avatar State also comes up in her talk with Tenzin, who explains that she can't use it unless properly connected with all her past lives. The visions are, as usual, Aang's way of trying to reach her. Team Avatar II is later formed but trouble brews when the surviving Triad Members band together to take down Amon and prove the superiority of their bending. Tahno joins them to avenge the fallen wolf bats and it becomes a three way war between the Triads, Amon, and Team Avatar.

      11. "Turf War" part 2

      Things heat up as Tarrlok's task force enters the mix. Amon takes advantidge of the lack of unity between everyone and manages to perform a mass equalisation, taking many prisoners. Tahno is spared a second time and agrees to join Team Avatar even as Tarrlok warns them to stay out of his way.

      12. "Search for Answers"

      Korra decides that finding out Amon's secrets is the only way to win against him so she uses a rare celestial event to enter the Spirit World for the first time, intending to seek out the ones who gave Amon his power to ask that they revoke it or tell how to reverse it. She meets Koh, who reveals that Amon is lying but say no no more, implying the past has the answer.

      13. "Out of the Past" part 1

      Korra goes searching for answers to the mystery of Yakone while battling against Tarrlok's oppressive task force and the Equalists. Meanwhile her visions grow steadily stronger. Team Avatar is eventually arrested  and Tarrlok unveils his blood bending to take Korra prisoner.

      14. "Out of the Past" Part 2

      This is basically the same but Korra actually meets Aang, we see Young Adult Katara, Suki, Zuko, and a young Lin an Tenzin. Yakone also leads a crime syndicate of "unique" benders implied to be part of something bigger. Team Avatar  I beats them, Yakone has his bending removed, and everything else proceeds as in canon except that Aang mentions chakras to korra before fading away.    

      More to come...

    • Spirits can seemingly disrupt machines so robot world domination doesn't look good.

    • Agree.

    • Book 1: Eliminate love square and have Borra and Asako remain through the season, have more episodes, have an episode devoted entirely to Amon and the Lieutenant, have Korra lose her Bending when she escapes from Amon in the wilderness (and subsequently gain Airbending in the finale like on the show), have Amon take power towards the end of the season (and instead of bombing the city, have him and the Equalists round up and detain Benders in Republic City), have Bumi and the rest of the United Forces slip into the city and start some espionage, have Mako and Bolin deputized into the Police Force to help combat the Equalists, and ultimately have Amon lose power much like he does in the show.

      Book 2: Korra still only has Airbending (and won't get it back until she re-merges with Raava), she and Bolin will have amicably broken up (I actually don't mind Boeska that much), Unalaq will have an episode devoted to his backstory (which will actually give him a motivation) showing that his takeover of the SWT and wanting to kill Korra is a result of him being envious of his brother and that wanting to become the Dark Avatar and ushering in an era of chaos is another way to one-up Tonraq, Raiko will initially decline to militarily aid the SWT but then change his mind once he's been made aware of the danger of Unalaq, Raava will be a spirit of order and peace (not necessarily 'good', and she might come across as authoritarian or controlling), Vaatu will be a spirit of chaos and disorder (not necessarily 'evil'), UnaVaatu will NOT BECOME A GIANT MONSTER JUST FOR KICKS (instead, he'll merely stay his normal size and his eyes will glow in a darker version of the Avatar State), Korra will re-merge with Raava and fight him with her newly-restored four elements Bending, Jinora will NOT SUDDENLY APPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE AND MAGICALLY SOLVE EVERYTHING, and Korra will imprison UnaVaatu back in the Tree of Time.

      Book 3: The only thing I would really change about this season would be to make an episode devoted to the origins of the Red Lotus (how they were recruited, how they all met, and maybe even how they developed their unique Bending capabilities). Oh, and we would also find out who Su's dad is (This one can take place in Book 4; just so long as we find out).

      Book 4: Have an episode devoted to Kuvira and one for Baatar Jr, and most importantly: have Kuvira be taken by the Spirits to the Fog of Lost Souls just like Zhao (she messed with powers that she shouldn't have, just like he did, so she should have to experience the same kind of punishment).

      Books 3 and 4 were VERY well done, IMO. It's just Books 1 and 2 that need this kind of overhaul.

        Loading editor
    • I'd have shown more flashbacks in Book One, seen more action by the adult Team Avatar. 

      Book Two, I would have had more development for Desna and Eska, more interaction with Raava, seen more about Wan Shi's motivationand an actual punishment for what he did in helping Unalaq 

        Loading editor
    • If I were in charge, seasons would not be mini-series format. There would  also be no love triangles whatsoever and though I don't mind Korrasami, Borra would be endgame from Book 1 onwards. The Equalists would be made more sympathetic and less one dimensional with the Lieutenant and Hiroshi getting focus episodes that explore their motivations and have them slowly but surely start to doubt Amon.Tahno would be built up during the pro bending subarc that would be introduced thanks to more eps and his cheating would be well hidden up until Amon reveals it. He would however keep his bending thanks to Korra and reform, joining Team Avatar.    I would introduce Kya and Bumi earlier and have the later showcase bad-ass non-bending warrior skills. I would also incorperate Young Adult Katara, Adult Suki, and young versions of their kids into flashbacks, as well as Lin and maybe foreshadow Su a bit. The biggest change I would make is with the Yakone family. Hint that Yakone is part of something bigger, give him a connection to Hama, and imply his abilities are more than just talent. Give him a gang of equally powerful thugs that require all of Team Avatar I to beat. Make one  of his gang the woman who was his wife in canon, give her a name and a personality. Make Tarrlok more sympathetic and the one who ran away while Noatak embraced his parents' philosophy, using "equality" as a platform for his goals. Tarrlok becomes an ally around the time his past is revealed. Finally, I would have Korra unlock her air bending earlier in the season, sometime before the finale and after an episode or two, lose her other elements as in cannon. She would fight with only air bending ronly right up until the end of the season, which plays out much the same with Aang appearing and restoring her. other elements as well as the Avatar state.

      Book 2 gets even more  of an overhaul and it follows the plot of Book 3. We substitue Harmonic Convergence with a similar cosmic event that serves as a prelude to the real thing that not only gives air bending but instills other abilities like giving Jinora spiritual capabilities and gives Bolin lava bending. The later is kept secret until near the finale. We also get to see more of the Red Lotus organization as a whole fight Team Avatar and more depth on Zaheer and his cohears. Other tidbts would include Zuko being bad-ass and genuinely playing a big role,.Aang mentoring Korra, a brief flashback of the Red Lotus trying to kidnap Korra that incorpates Katara into the fighting, The council being turned into President Raiko's cabinet with new members Hiroshi and the Leutenant, Pema being made an air bender, and the revealation that Yakon and Amon had Red Lotus ties. We also make Su-yin a member who struggles with the devotion to her ideals and her genuine desire to recouncil with Lin. Verrick is in there too somewhere and it's made clear he and Zhu Li have feelings for one another. The season ends with a non crippled Korra leading Team Avatar in aiding the White Lotus in wiping out the remainig Red Lotus cells.

      Book 3 would have continue the Red Lotus storyline while showng us the Fire Nation and introducing Fire Lord Izumi, her husband, her daughter, and giving Iroh II more depth. We also bring in the WT civil war from canon and have both Katara and Senna kick ass. We also see Aang advise Korra some more and a future incarnation of the Kyoshi warriors lead by Suki and Sokka's daughter. The main villain is Xai Bau, who is secretly Hundun fro the video game and hints that he serves the darkest of all spirits.

      Book 4 is a revamped Book 2 that has Korra suddenly lose the Avatar State and being able to communicate with her past lives.Dark Spirits also begin to attack everywhere. She goes to see Unalaq, opens the portal, but ends up trapped in the Spirit World. She goes through trials, meets Iroh I, Lu Ten, Azula, Sokka, etc. and learns the story of Wan. This woukd be heavily revamped with energy bending, Oma and Shu, etc. We would also see Koh in place of Wan Shi tong. Korra eventually frees her past lives and they join her army of allies, consisting of her family, all her allies, the first Team Avatar, even spirits like Iroh I and a few old villains. The past Avatars recombine with Korra to activate the Avatar State and destroy Vaatu. A new era begins and years later, an aged Bolin tells the next Avatar of his wife the legend.

      Series end.

    • First season- lessened the love triangle or square between team Avatar 2.0, focused alot more on Amon and the Equalist movement, replaced the mecha tanks with something else eniterly (guns, repeating crossbows) or just put in more hints to thier development throughout the first season (mechanical arms used to help manufacture cars, diving suits, etc), higher emphasis on airplanes dominating the battlefield. Korra not getting her bending back at the end of the season. 

      Second season- a longer lasting impact of the Anti Bending Revolution all they did was elect a non bending president out of the blue. We saw little to none of the valid complaints and issues between benders and non benders being solved. Unulaq was a discount Ozai. They could have given him a much more valid reason to send troops to the south like instead of them being there to maintain order, have them be there to help protect against further spirit attacks then slowly transition into an occupation force. I agree with the above comments on expanding this particular season into 2 seasons.

    • I would have made Book 1 longer and fleshed out the story and setting more. I'd probably add in a few more characters and prolonged the mystery behind the Equalist Movement and explained Amon a little bit more.

      Book 2, I would have made the Avatar more consistent with what was established in ATLA, probably removing Raava and changing around Beginnings alot. I still think introducing the first Avatar would have been interesting, Raava and Vaatu might have been part of it, but not actually as part of the Avatar itself. I'd have shed more light on energybending and probably just handled the civilization at that point quite differently, with out the divisions by different element lionturtles, with everyone energybending. I also probably wouldn't have handled the two worlds as they did, more like they are different planes of the same space. Aside from basically all the Raava and Vaatu stuff, I kind of liked what was happening in the modern time during book 2, Mako's sluething/Varrick conspiracy, Air Nomad family vacation, and Bolin's mover/propaganda career, the Civil War wasn't even all that bad in the beginning.

    • If I had to incorperate Raava and Vaatu at all, I would have made them the creators of the Avatar. Two spirits who represent order and chaos, yet want things kept in balance. They give Wan all four elements and made him learn from the moon and the bending animals.

    • Honestly I would have taken out the love triangle and would have given Asami's character more of an arc. It would have been interesting if she was an equalist and Korra and friends convinced her to join their team later on. I also wouldn't have made Mako and Korra get together right away. I would have spread their romance out over all four seasons for better buildup because they work really well as friends and teammates. Even though they were friends before dating, I would have rather seen their romance build up a bit more.

Speaking of which, I would make sure to give Bumi and Kya real issues like a further exploration of how they felt growing up instead of stupid things like imaginary cannibals and a fear of commitment.

      In some ways, I wouldn't mind. There aren't enough Space Operas, & you can do some cool stuff with bending in space.

      That said, there are many, many, many, many ways for that to go wrong.

I know I already said this but I also would've expanded some roles for the adult women of the show whose name wasn't Beifong. Give Senna an actual personality and some fighting skills, make Pema more than just "stressed out mom who gives advice."

I mean, it's good to explore team dynamics.  If anyone has seen Age Of Ultron, it's a good example of how a team, the Avengers, start ending up in inter-team conflict due to a crisis, and this will be the root of the plot in Captain America: Civil War. The reason why I'd include a plot where Team Avatar splits into two would draw from the disagreement over dealing with the crisis in the Water Tribe.

      But there already is a crisis that's causing emotional conflict.  The Crisis is the Water Tribe Civil War. The conflict is the manner of dealing with the situation, and the problem is that Korra won't listen to others.  As a result, I feel this should be expanded a little so that the issue then becomes that Mako can't stand by a leader who won't listen to others' points.

    • Well, if you can go for six months without any sort of development in a relationship and revert back to the state you were pre-series, it makes sense that the role you're going to play is antagonistic. Not that I like it, no. Also, how is it a two-way split if Mako leaves? That's a three-to-one system, which actually seems to be the general reaction of Team Avatar to Mako in this season...

      Generally, I agree with the Captain. This series needs a second draft. In fact, that's something to ask next time Bryke make a public appearance: "What would you have done differently if you had known for a fact that Korra was going to be four seasons long at the very beginning?"

      By two way, I mean expand the inter-team conflict a little, to the point where Korra's leadership of team Avatar has been put to question because Korra cannot see past her emotion, and won't take advice from others. So basically, dial down whatever problems Mako and Bolin are having, and make it so that even Bolin disagrees with the way Korra leads her team, and then there are two team Avatars, one with Mako and Bolin, another where Asami is the only one left loyal to Korra. Then later on, Team Avatar reassembles, an realizes that their differences are what make them stronger.

    • Ah. The alternative, of course, is to split Mako and Bolin up as well (seriously, Bolin had no idea how much of a jerk he was being, did he?), have Mako go with Asami (because I actually was interested in their interactions, though not so much that they got back together that quickly), and have Korra and Bolin be stuck trying to bounce off one another. Because, in all honesty, what reason does Asami have to be loyal to Korra? She can't even claim she saved her life, because it was Bolin who did that, at the airfield (unless I missed something). Previous relations that leave you to have some nostalgia for to the point of kissing them upon hearing they're single again? Mako. But Korra did point out that her dad was an Equalist...and kiss her boyfriend...and invite her, alongside the boys, to live on Air Temple Island for a while...what kind of real interaction did they have besides talking about Satomobiles before Book 3?

        Loading editor
    • What reason would Asami have to stay loyal to Korra? Does there have to be a reason? Why can't it be for the reason that Asami trusts the results and still believes in Korra. From book 1 episode 8, she believed in Korra, and always had since that moment. Asami doesn't care much about playing by the book. In book 2, she was willing to go with a whatever Korra wanted. Mako on the other hand does. Why do you think I said "dial down whatever conflict Mako and Bolin have?" Bolin is Mako's brother, that's why Bolin would join Mako's team. It's not just interactions at play here, it's the style of leadership matters too. Korra is more freestyle, whereas Mako plays by the rules. Given that Asami went against her father, I'd say she'd prefer Korra's style of leadership.

      As to leadership styles...look, just because Asami rebelled against her father, it doesn't necessarily mean that she's a rebel in her style of thinking. From what personality and interaction she was actually given (and compared to Korra it really wasn't much), she seems much more...well, methodical in her methods, preferring to internalize knowledge beforehand (or actually design the course herself). That's not improv as much as it's good planning, something that Mako seems better at. Bolin, on the other hand, seems better at quick and light improvisation, similar to his Bending style. I mean, look at those two playing Pai Sho and tell me that Asami doesn't prefer devious and complex plots over fast-paced freestyle play. Also, "going with what Korra wants" is another poor example of independence; it points more to a passivity of will, the idea of playing by the book in a sense, because in effect you've got somebody doing your thinking for you. And given how some of Korra's other ideas have played out, I'm not sure that her track record is compatible with that of a multimillion-yuan CEO who designs advanced machinery as a pastime. Forget blind loyalty without any cause whatsoever, Asami, and use a bit of that common sense and ingenuity that you and your family are famous for!

      To be honest with you, I agree; as much as they on occasion will disagree, Bolin is Mako's brother, and even when he was a jerk he still tried to be caring (while failing miserably, but the feeling's still there, hidden under that ridiculous costume). I just don't think Asami would default to Korra without some sort of reason. And yes, it is a personal philosophy of mine that every action has some kind of reason behind it; it might not be a good reason, by exterior standards, but if the person in question believes it to be good enough, then that's fine. But I cannot see the one member of the group who without fail has a commitment to her company–who's actually said as much–doing something without calculating it thoroughly first.

But I cannot see the one member of the group who without fail has a commitment to her company–who's actually said as much–doing something without calculating it thoroughly first.

      As Asami may have a commitment to her company, she has time for almost everything, even adventures. Keep in mind this is fiction, wherein characters with these kinds of jobs have time for everything. Just because they're CEOs doesn't mean they have to act like one. Who says they can't like "people persons"? It wouldn't be that Asami is blindly following Korra, and it isn't that she's a rebel in her style of thinking, but it would be that she's on board with wanting to help Korra to the point that she believes in Korra. She ALWAYS has believed in Korra, starting from Book 1, ep 8. It would be more along the lines of her writing her own books, just as Korra wants to. Keep in mind that in Team Avatar, everyone's a soldier and general (I don't mean that in the literal sense), but where Mako comes from, there's a chain of command, and you have to play by the book.

      Now that I think about it, if a "Team Breakup" plot was used in Book 2, Bolin and Varrick (even though he back stabbed them) would stay with Korra, while Asami would side with Mako, because that's very much what happened. However, if that plot was used for Book 3, then Asami would go with Korra, while Bolin would go with Mako. However, I think if the team breakup plot was used for book 3, then there should be more members of Team Avatar to make said plot make sense. What should have been done was to add three or so additional members to team avatar over the course of mid Book 2 to early Book 3.

    • ...have you actually watched that episode recently? As in, within the last month? Even reading the transcript would do it to get the memory flowing. And in Book 1, Episode 8, there was really nothing that Asami showed that had any relation to a deep trust Korra. Well, eight syllables: "No, that's nonsense! You're amazing!" Said to a moping Korra who wasn't able to pick up Airbending within weeks when she'd spent four years at a time training for the other elements, and sandwiched in between the equal reactions of Mako and Bolin. And if support is what you're looking for, then I'd say she was outsupported by the Bending Brothers as well. Respect is one thing; belief in a girl you really don't know much about besides her fighting abilities is not really something to be properly conveyed in a one-shot sentence. And following somebody who wants to write their own story while wanting to write your own and having the necessary materials to do so? Again, respect an equal, don't believe in a leader, not when you're just as equally one in your own field.

      Chain of command? Soldier and general? Are we talking about the old Team Avatar or the new Team Avatar? For that matter, Asami's world has a chain of command as well; she just happens to be born at the top, while Mako and Bolin were stuck near the bottom.

      Hmm. That could work, but you'd need a reason for them to split. Also, who would you recommend?

      Hmm. That could work, but you'd need a reason for them to split. Also, who would you recommend?

      In Korra's Team Avatar, everyone's a soldier and general. That's another way of saying the way everyone operates is a free-for-all. Korra is a strong believer in that. Keep in mind Mako is a police officer, and he strongly believes in the chain of command. Also, you're misinterpreting my statement about writing your own books. It's another way of you want to play by your own book and not play by the book.

      Also keep in mind, Korra isn't just any girl you don't know, she's the AVATAR, and people will believe in her, some will do so until they're not impressed enough.  You're talking about DEEP trust, but NO, I'm talking about a different kind of trust that is at play here, as well as the idea of believing in someone.  You're focused on just the small things, the idea that there is no deep trust between Korra and Asami, but that's besides the point. There are other factors at play in the big picture. Why can't it be that Asami just simply believes in Korra because, well she believes in her.  You don't have to know someone that well to believe in them, they just have to give you something to believe in. Korra's the Avatar, every avatar has given something for people to believe in, so all bets are off until an avatar fails to impress.  The only trust Asami would have is not in Korra fighting abilities, but Korra's judgement as well as results, and Asami has never argued with results.  

      As for new members, I'd say members to add would be Opal, Kai, and a teenage non-bending White Lotus agent assigned to accompany the Avatar and be her sidekick.  So, if there was a reason for Team Avatar to split in two, I'd say that reason would be that Korra has been taking too much risk, leading recklessly and keeping her team in the dark during a world crisis. The reason for the split becomes that Mako does not agree with the way Korra leads the team and the risks she's bringing to them.  That is very much how Korra operates and leads her team, no rules, no structure per se, and it's a free for all. So as a result, Mako quits Team Avatar and takes Bolin and Opal with him. Kai, Asami, and the White Lotus agent would stay with Korra. 

      However, I'd say the team breakup plot works better in Book 2, so maybe add a new member (let's say the white lotus agent I proposed), and have him quit with Mako and Asami, while Bolin stays with Korra.

    • ...okay, but he wasn't a police officer to begin with. He was as much a random player as anybody else on the team. "Hustle or get hustled", anyone? More to the point, you could just as easily say that Korra and Asami are privileged enough to be independent thanks to the relatively strict care they've been given, whereas Mako, who's lived through the darker side of independence, actually recognizes some relative use of the system of authority. True, Korra's been stopping great big dangers to world security, but what about those triads? It's not like she can do everything, Avatar or no, and there are always going to be others "lower" than her who have to do their jobs to protect the order they like, and can't just step in and create their own.

      Dearie dear. There's a major difference between merely being the Avatar and actually doing anything. Just like there's a difference between being the Earth King and actually doing something to help the Earth Kingdom. And while I realize that many folk would not be aware of that, I'm fairly certain Asami would be. A simple faith in the Avatar? Korra has pointed out, again and again, that she wants to be the Avatar, not just the Avatar. She wants to be something totally unlike anything the world's ever seen, while not knowing at all what that is. In effect, her personality has nothing except her wish to be the Avatar when Asami meets her. And I'm fairly certain that if anyone tried accusing Asami Sato of blind faith in an icon, they'd be bruised and electrocuted before they could say "aargh". Mind you, we don't know much about her, but I'm fairly certain somebody would be expecting better results than losing one's Bending while trying to take down one guy while you and the younger brother of your ex-boyfriend take down a whole runway and your father.

      Maybe 16 or 17. I mean there are SHIELD agents who are probably around that age. Maybe the new Team Avatar Member could be an agent slightly older than Korra.

      But like Korra, there could be other heroes who fight evil and don't play by the rules. As for the triads, sure, Korra probably fights them offscreen when there are no world threats. Believing that one should help the helpless, of course she'd never let triads get away with their crimes. Keep in mind though, once Mako is in Team Avatar, there is no structure under Korra--it's a free-for-all. In the Police Force, there is a structure and chain of command that exists. Mako seems to prefer structure to prevent Korra from making reckless decisions. As a matter of fact, there were good results that Korra accomplished that Asami noted--giving the non benders a voice. But look, there's nothing wrong with believing in someone as long as they give you something to believe in. Sure, Kuvira gave Bolin something to believe in. It turned out to be a lie, but at least Bolin found something to believe in, you can't fault him for that, so I wouldn't fault Asami for believing in Korra even if there is no tangible reason apart from simple faith in that person. It just is what it is, there shouldn't be justification for that. I think it's stupid and tedious for one to ask another to justify their faith in this person--I say let em have it until they're not impressed. It's not wrong to have Korra be the Avatar, have people have faith in her, Korra does something, then have people either lose faith or continue to believe in her. So, not once has Asami argued with results Korra has produced, because they always turn out well.

      Not once has Asami complained about Korra's methods, so no, I wouldn't see anything wrong with Asami staying on Korra's side if Mako quits Team Avatar. They're both portrayed as independent, so yes, Korra's freestyle leadership would work for Asami. For the team breakup plot, I picture a dialogue like this:

      Mako: I won't leave my team, not in the hands of Korra. Korra's recklessness and risk taking has put many of us in danger. I can't stand by a commander who won't stand by or listen to her companions. Who's coming with me?

      Bolin: Well, Mako does have a point about wanting to keep us safe. I know I wanna be safe, so I'm with Mako.

      Asami: You guys wanna play by the book? Fine, but Korra and I write our own books.

      White Lotus agent: Well, I promised to stand by the Avatar, so I shall. I know it's not how things are done at the White Lotus, but for once, I'd like to live by my own rules.

      Yes, I would see Bolin joining Mako because Bolin does value safety, and would want to live by Mako's structure.

      And which one is more horrible in him? Can you answer this?

    • I think I'd have done more with the Equalist movement.

      It never made sense to me that it completely died with Amon--it was born of normal humans feeling oppressed, and that resentment doesn't just go away because the leader dies and a normal is elected President. I'd see Republic City continuing to deal with fallout from that.

      Moving into book 2, the temper tanrums Korra seemed to throw in the first few episodes seemed at odds with the growth she displayed in book one. I'd figure out a means of remedying that, without downplaying the emotional distress of the Northern Tribe's occupation of the South.

      Lastly, I'd have drawn out each season--no less than 20 episodes per book.

    • In a very roundabout way, you answer the question indirectly, so, you imply that he is an unnatural monster, hence, by definition, a kaiju. He's also big enough to be considered a daikaiju in his cosmic energy form. He had many similarities to Godzilla and that genre.

      But, since you ask my opinion on what's worse about him, I'd say the creature that he is now is more horrible than his behavior as a man, because this body enables him to destroy everything much more easily and completely than he could as a man (which he already had a knack for in the first place).

      Not quite, because technically, the Fire Nation won the war. The Earth Military was defeated and was in no position to launch a counter-offencive against the FN. One could argue that it was indeed the Fire Lord who brought about the peace.

      The Earth Kingdom knew this, and thus had to tread lightly. Do you think the Avatar himself convinced the Earth Kingdom to give up land for the URN? I think some FN muscle got the work done.

    • You mean the old children's book character? Cool.

      Anyway, here's a few more ideas for improving LOK.

      1. In book 3, I would add a few more rogue airbenders besides Zaheer. Maybe they're more Red Lotus members, genuinely loyal to the Earth Queen, or both. Maybe we can even introduce an air bender Triad that formed during the three year time skip.

      But yeah, more rogue airbenders would be interesting.

        Loading editor
    • If I had been calling the shots - whether for LoK in general or just Books 1 and 2 - the first thing is more episodes - about 20 episodes, same as ATLA. There are a few general changes that I would have wanted to have made overall, but this isn't the topic for them.

      For Books 1 and 2 specifically...There's really only one major beef I had with the first two Books of LoK, other than how annoying Bolin got in Book 2, which I allow because I justify it as him letting his fame due to Varrick's "mover" success going to his head.

      My main, major problem is Korra getting her bending back at the end of Book 1. It's done too quickly, too easily. It just sort of happens, and while in and of itself it works, it is lazy writing IMO. 

      What I would do instead is extend that into a short arc of its own, with Korra struggling with the consequences of the loss of Earth/Fire/Water Bending while at the same time learning Air Bending and attempting to increase/develop her spiritual connection and connection to past lives. And only once she succeeds at this is she able - in a similar way to the series - regain her bending. I haven't thought too much about the specifics as of yet.

      The other thing I would change perhaps a little is how...petulant she sounded at times in early B-2, which seemed a step backwards from how she was at the end of B-1. That and the Book 2 pairing ping-pong with Korra, Mako, and Asami.

    • And only once she succeeds at this is she able - in a similar way to the series - regain her bending. I haven't thought too much about the specifics as of yet.

      I just want to point out, while everyone says they wanted this, when it happens in the game, it's 1 of the most common complaints.

        Loading editor
    • I liked working on getting the bending back in the game, I thought it was cool to sort of pass a test to require the powers, earning them, a little bit of a sense of ownership of it. I would have liked that even expanded a little bit or more choices in what order or how they developed. But it was totally lazy/contrived writing from a story perspective.

      I happen to agree with--I think it was Bryan--it would be pointless to see her learn the elements again, we'd just be watching a repeat of what Aang did. Maybe like an "Avatar & the Fire Lord" style montage. Tops.

    • Yeah, I know I said I hadn't thought much about the specifics, but having Korra actually go through and re-learn the elements was definitely not what I had in mind. Idea hadn't even occurred to me, TBH. But like I said, I hadn't considered the specifics much as of yet.

      I mean, I like doing quests to get powers. Like in old school World of Warcraft (if you're familiar with any of that) I really enjoyed for instance doing the Shaman quests to craft and infuse your totems with the elemental spirits. Or the Druid quests to learn from the animal spirits for shapeshifting.

      But, I don't think it makes much sense in Korra's case and that is something I thought could be a problem if they tried that in LoK (learning all the elements similar to Aang's journey).

    • It didn't seem like much of a quest. It also seemed like the game was meant to be played with all of the styles available. I could elaborate on your wall, but I'm not sure how interested you are to hear me drone on about game mechanics.

      As far as the show itself goes, I'm gathering that nobody else wants to see The Avatar Learns the Elements Mark II either, but that they just didn't like how quickly it was resolved.

      To that end, I suppose I would just extend the scene out, really drive home the whole "lowest point" thing.

      To that end, I suppose I would just extend the scene out, really drive home the whole "lowest point" thing.

      I agree, it does feel like the game was designed to be played with all four elements the whole time.

      At the same time, I personally enjoyed the somewhat arbitrary restriction, then reaquiring an element in a special scenario (earthbending being my favorite). If there could have been a better story reasoning, with a more developed quest for it, even better, for my tastes.

      But, it doesn't make sense from a story standpoint, really, and I could see most people just wanting all four elements the entire time, they're the Avatar afterall. So, really, neither here nor there. Just my opinion.

      I might enjoy "learning the elements mark II", but they'd have to be creative about it and make it different enough to warrant telling the story. Not doing it was probably a better choice and establishes that this is a different story. Though, I felt it a bit contrived the "I AM THE AVATAR!!!" though, still funny itself and in that it's basically establishing "yes, she's definitely the Avatar, yes, she's trained up (in three elements anyways), let's move on with the story we want to tell."

        Loading editor
    • Again, "Avatar learns the elements MkII" is NOT what I was alluding to - I agree, that would be both repetitive and boring. No, what I had in mind would be an expansion on the spiritual angle of being the Avatar - something Korra is terrible at. Basically, the ultimate outcome is the same as it was in LoK Bk1, but instead of simply happening basically on its own, Korra has to work for it, to struggle to overcome her inability to connect on a spiritual level. And only once she's able to achieve that is she able to connect and speak with Aang, who restores her bending. I would make that the first part of Book 2, and segue thence into the Spirit Portals/Water Tribe Civil War arc

      Book 1:

When they are tracked down, Korra does another face off with Amon but due to the Avatar state, wins but spares him. Korra's allies question why she spared Amon but Katara walks up to Amon.

      Katara tells Amon and Tarlokk about Zuko, of how he had an abusive/ruthless father (Ozai), much like Yakone, and that she greatly apologizes for the actions of one bender in particular. Tarlokk and Noahtok agree it was the fault of their Father, not benders and apologize for their behavior. Tarlokk has his bending restored, then Katara insists on teaching them to be healers to help fix the damage they've caused

      0 Deaths in Book one


      Book 2:

      -I created an fan fiction a while ago of Kya being married to explain her bethroral necklace and having one son (Kyee), who was able to bend water vapour, however seperated from Tenzin's part of the family due to their cultures conflicting.

      I'd have Kya leaving Kyee at Air Temple island during her vacation with Tenzin + Children + Bumi, then have him cause havoc among the acolytes, such as eating fish

      -After Mako is falsely arrested, Opal randomly shows up at the police station. (She doesn't have airbending at this point)

      She joyfully walks up to the front desk to Lin, hugs her, and explains how she wanted to meet her Aunt so much. Lin shows no emotion the entire time. Opal frowns and explains how Lin never visits her and her Mom deeply misses her.

      An police officer asks if Opal is related to Lin in anyway, then Lin gets up and denies having any relationship to Opal, to which Opal replies she may have the wrong person. Lin demands Opal to leave, to which Bolin notices. He acts charming and offers to escort her out, to which Lin simply demands anything to get rid of Opal.

      Bolin goes on some friendly walk with Opal and becomes pratically intoxicated on how nice she is until he gains sense and realizes she left. Bolin looks around in distress and it starts raining, then shows Opal trying to talk on an radio in an public building.

      The scene switches to Zao Fu at night in the rain and an radio tuning sound plays.

      It shows Suyin's back calling on the radio, talking to Opal. "Its been 30 years... how is Lin?". Opal tears up and says shes going home. Suyin hangs up and the camera pans back to Suyins back, showing she is face palming and says to herself "what have I done...". (Never actually shows Suyin's face)

      This is to add some foreshadowing towards Book 3. For the rest of the book Bolin does not have any romances with Eska nor Ginger and talks to Mako frequently about this "Opal". Mako asks about her then Bolin realizes he never asked where shes from or anything else about her. Mako critizes him for this

    • Well, when we saw Shadowbending in the Comics, it was manifested, so it could touch things. Which seems unlogical to me, since darkness is not composed of matter (unless we go into dark matter and stuff).

      However, you know, how the Avatars kinda also learned to controll the ether, which is the fifth element of the four-element-teachings? I thought about it: What about the absence of the ether? In that comic it was called shadowbending, but when avatars bend the energy of life (ether) and therefore the essence of being, there must be an opposite. You could say, it's Voidbending.

      If forced to connect it to another element, I'd either go for earth (because earth is the element of matter, matter results in gravity and gravity results in dark matter, dark energy and black holes) or for a subtype of energybending, like the lightningbending is a type of firebending.

      However, I mainly want it in the show because that girl in the comic was a goth and I like gothy things (hence my profile picture) and I want a freaking goth nation to rise from the unknown.

Vaatu uses his powers to turn humans into dar spirit extensions of himself. Here's how it would go--Vaatu tests out his power on Asami, then she briefly falls under Vaatu's control, and while her friends are fighting Vaatu and Unalaq, Katara and Kya have to find a way to cure her. Why her? Because I think there needs to be a better excuse to keep Asami out of battle, as opposed to sidelining her for no reason. In Republic city Unavaatu creates more Vaatu copies in humans, which affect every victim they touch. Once Katara and Kya find a way to cure Asami, she regains her willpower, but still uses her connection to Vaatu to tell all extensions of Vaatu to leave their victims and return to Vaatu.

At first Asami thinks of Mako as a womanizing ladies-man but begins to learn the real Mako and there be a Bosami kiss overall I can't entirely think of what I want to change aside from Masami

      in book two lets start with seeing Senna showcase her bending skills by showing her heal injured rebels, Zhu li be as awesome as we know she is, Korra be less of an ass, Unalaq be a almost decent human being who cares about humanity in some form but I'd make him a more abusive father by having him beat Desna and Eska for "failing" to get Korra I would have Raiko have a radio conference with Unalaq and the south and see that he has prisoners, meet Izumi and her hot daughter but Korra still crashes her boat and beginings is left alone, Mako at least makes an excuse instead of just flat out lying but at least dumps Asami (again) we get to see Suki. I could list much more but I don't think I have the time or energy to.

      I like the sound of that. Would you give her any changes to her physical appearance too?

      Yes, Asami adopts Vaatu's color scheme when assimilated.

    • If I was in charge of the first two LoK books, the first book would have two additional episodes which include the return of the Air Acolytes to Air Nomad Island and the rebuilding of the Republic City social structure.

      The second book will include the closing of the Northern Spirit Portal but keeping the Southern Portal open and Korra defeating the Dark Avatar before things escalate into dangerous waters.

    • Like nickelodeon in charge, or bryke in charge?

      If Nickelodeon; give permission to have Korrasami earlier,. And have full seasons, and not cut the budget.

      if Bryke, make Lin not an idiot, make Mako not a two timing hoe, make Let Asami be relavant, we know she can fight. And have a fight between Zhu Li and Asami. Make Unalaq less obviously evil right off the bat.

      Edit: and have Suki appear in a flashback, since she's the only team avatar character who doesn't get shown or talked about.

      Edit 2: Also have the white lotus not come out of hiding to stop them from turning into ineffectual idiots.

    • Have a more spiritual theme to seasons 3 and 4, maybe part way through season 3 a spirit with a name like Yama. This spirit explains to Korra that due to the spiritual influence of the avatar, they're these echoes of the previous avatars, and if Korra can get to them, she can reclaim their power and memories for the avatar state. We could get great insights to some of the epic deads of previous avatars, and maybe see Suki somewhere along the line - maybe she is membered as the greatest of the Kyoshi island warriors and Korra has to defeat her granddaughter to reclaim Kyoshi's power, without Bending. Also Toph would be her guide, so that would be awesome.

      Going by LoK as it stands, I probably would have had Kyoshi warriors in two spots. The first would have been helping out Zuko when he went to the WT to try and prevent Zaheer from freeing P'li. You'd only need like two Kyoshi warriors trying to protect him. The other spot is accompanying Izumi.

      With Sokka or Suki, even some throw away line of dialogue would have been fine.

      For the first book, I would have had Korra have to do some intellectual maneuvering in order to expose Amon rather than pretty much charging blindly into the fray. I'd also tweak Amon's character in the last half so that he doesn't simply call in the troops and invade, but rather rise to power through entirely legitimate means, then subsequently beefing up non-bender security in order to "contain the bending threat". This way Korra can't simply go in and beat him up to win, otherwise she would alienate a lot more people than she could afford to. Granted, Amon would still get kicked to the curb, but it would be after Korra and Co. had cleverly revealed his nature to the world instead of sheer luck exposing him.

      The second book I would basically make into two. The first would focus on the brewing tensions between North and South, with neither side necessarily being in the right in Korra's eyes. Nations get involved, Korra's diplomatic skills are put to the test, and a villain (Varric) is revealed to have orchestrated a lot of (but not all) the tensions to sell his and Asami's war machines. End scene involves Unalaq conversing with Vaatu (now simply a spirit of chaos rather than chaos and evil), talking about how the Avatar world is about to change forever.

      The second of the two arcs derived from book 2 would go more into the spiritual aspects, and is where the most edits are so bear with me. Unalaq would ask Korra to open the spirit portals in order to bring better balance to the world and hopefully prevent the previous international conflict. The southern portal is opened, but on the way to the north, Unalaq is discovered to be consorting with dark spirits, and Korra and Co. bail. Tenzin and Korra try to uncover why the spirits are acting the way they are and how Unalaq could be involved, but at some point Korra gets attacked by the spirit kraken like before. Cue Beginnings 1 & 2, except Vaatu isn't innately evil. He's more of an extreme devotee of "survival of the fittest", despising human civilization, believing it only to be a crutch for the weak and an encumbrance to the strong. He believes all the world, including humanity, should stay wild, always fighting with other creatures and spirits with their bare hands to achieve eventual perfection. Raava is also not necessarily good, as she is simply a spirit of order. At times she can exude something approximating righteousness, but other times she seems a bit authoritarian and iron fisted. Korra learns that Vaatu intends to return humanity to a very savage state, and races off to gather her forces to stop him. Since this is no longer necessarily a political issue, the other nations, namely the URN, rally to Korra's side and lay siege to Unalaq's spiritual stronghold in the North Pole. Battle ensues, and Unalaq ends up with most of the Krew at his mercy, and forces Korra to open the other portal. Korra opens the other portal, but then turns on Unalaq the second his attention is diverted. Unalaq gets KO'd, Korra rushes to close the portals, but finds that its too late. Vaatu is released, and nature/spirits begin to rapidly encroach into human settlements including Republic City. Vaatu and Unalaq become the Dark Avatar and Vaatu quickly overwhelms his host (who's last words were "this wasn't part of the deal!), and lays into Korra. Korra tries fighting him off in the Avatar State, but finds herself slowly being infected by UnaVaatu while grappling with him, destroying the past lives. Raava and Korra have a pep talk, achieve true unity against UnaVaatu's simple overwhelming of his host, and end up pacifying the chimaeric being. Cue Korra leaving the portals open and all that jazz for the next book.

      I like this.

      Plus, I want Jinora to be an official part of Team Avatar; with all her book smarts, she could do law research with Mako (whom knows the practical side of those things) & possibly Lin since she's the top cop, while Korra, Bolin & Asami handle other stuff. That way Jinora becoming Korra's Spiritual Guide later on wouldn't feel slightly out of nowhere like it does in canon, especially if she used her connection to Spirits to help Team Avatar find out the truth about Amon which would allow them to plan a way to expose him.

      What would I have done differently?

      Book 1:

      -No Makorra

      -Extended it.

      How? Would of had Tarlokk not commit suicide and he and Amon escape. After Korra regains her bending abilities she contacts Raava into tracking down Amon and Tarlokk. When they are tracked down, Korra does another face off with Amon but due to the Avatar state, wins but spares him. Korra's allies question why she spared Amon but Katara walks up to Amon.

      Katara tells Amon and Tarlokk about Zuko, of how he had an abusive/ruthless father (Ozai), much like Yakone, and that she greatly apologizes for the actions of one bender in particular. Tarlokk and Noahtok agree it was the fault of their Father, not benders and apologize for their behavior. Tarlokk has his bending restored, then Katara insists on teaching them to be healers to help fix the damage they've caused

      0 Deaths in Book one


      Book 2:

      -I created an fan fiction a while ago of Kya being married to explain her bethroral necklace and having one son (Kyee), who was able to bend water vapour, however seperated from Tenzin's part of the family due to their cultures conflicting.

      I'd have Kya leaving Kyee at Air Temple island during her vacation with Tenzin + Children + Bumi, then have him cause havoc among the acolytes, such as eating fish

      -After Mako is falsely arrested, Opal randomly shows up at the police station. (She doesn't have airbending at this point)

      She joyfully walks up to the front desk to Lin, hugs her, and explains how she wanted to meet her Aunt so much. Lin shows no emotion the entire time. Opal frowns and explains how Lin never visits her and her Mom deeply misses her.

      An police officer asks if Opal is related to Lin in anyway, then Lin gets up and denies having any relationship to Opal, to which Opal replies she may have the wrong person. Lin demands Opal to leave, to which Bolin notices. He acts charming and offers to escort her out, to which Lin simply demands anything to get rid of Opal.

      Bolin goes on some friendly walk with Opal and becomes pratically intoxicated on how nice she is until he gains sense and realizes she left. Bolin looks around in distress and it starts raining, then shows Opal trying to talk on an radio in an public building.

      The scene switches to Zao Fu at night in the rain and an radio tuning sound plays.

      It shows Suyin's back calling on the radio, talking to Opal. "Its been 30 years... how is Lin?". Opal tears up and says shes going home. Suyin hangs up and the camera pans back to Suyins back, showing she is face palming and says to herself "what have I done...". (Never actually shows Suyin's face)

      This is to add some foreshadowing towards Book 3. For the rest of the book Bolin does not have any romances with Eska nor Ginger and talks to Mako frequently about this "Opal". Mako asks about her then Bolin realizes he never asked where shes from or anything else about her. Mako critizes him for this

      All of this is awesome too! :D

    • The biggest irony of this sudden deluge of right wing propaganda is that you already did see bending privilege & bender oppression of nonbenders. The Council outright passed a law targeting nonbenders, & then power was selectively shut off to a primarily nonbending district (during winter) so the police could round people up to support a bogus "New law already stopping Equalists!" narrative.

      A more accurate analogy would be nonbenders pointing out that many problems still persist & being called something disparaging like "Bending Justice Warriors," written off with various rationalizations including:

      1. It was just Tarrlok, & Tarrlok is gone now, so all of the problems are solved. Disregard that Tarrlok couldn't have done what he did without the compliance of most of the Council, the police, & the power company serving the Dragon Flats, at bare minimum.

      2. Amon was a terrorist, therefore their arguments are all invalid, & maybe Tarrlok was even right the whole time.

      3. Sure, Tarrlok was wrong in the past, but that's different, now nonbenders have gone too far & need to be stopped to save society, & this is totally different from what Tarrlok said.

      Oh, & like I've said before, Mike & Bryan would be what many would consider "SJWs." Something they were practically accused of when they confirmed Korrasami. Though at least those people actually saw the very obvious political implications of the story, something I can't always say for this fandom.
