"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams
Korra Week 2014 ► Day 1: Alone
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Ch. 34, The Forest Again excerpt
During the finale, after Tonraq, Lin, Su and the metal clan soldiers leave Korra, she sort of jumps right into action to go give herself up to the Red Lotus. But in that small moment of her being left alone at the bottom of the mountain, I thought of this HP text comparison. I think a part of Korra went into this surrender believing she wasn’t going to come out alive. So for the “alone” prompt of Korra week, I imagined her head running through similar thoughts as to Harry’s before he also gave himself up for something he wanted to protect.
I know this isn’t the fanciest editing, but I didn’t feel like drawing it all, and I just wanted to get the concept out there before it got too late in the evening. I don’t have the actual book with me, so I apologize if the text excerpts aren’t exactly correct.
i may or may not have watched the finale 50 times
Korra Week - Alone
"I thought if I really tried I might be able to contact my past Avatars, someone who knows something to help me, but I can’t. They’re gone and I’m all alone."
Korra Week: Day 1 → Alone
"I just feel…alone."
Holy water cannot help you now
Thousand armies couldn’t keep me out
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done (♫)

"Let’s bend again soon, ok Korra?"
I could only see this after processing season 3’s finale.
