An Evening Proposal by Kianara-Titan

Seriously, the first thing out of my mouth when this popped up in my inbox was as follows: "OH MY GOD." I think my favorite element of ...

Wrath and Ruin by xcgirl08
Wrath and Ruin
I don’t think the fandom ever really settled on the matter of Thranduil’s face, but for the moment we’ll hold that it’s severe scarring he normally keeps concealed behind a sort of glamour: a glamour, of course, that drops from time to time.

("...the sweeter the kiss.")

Another Tauriel/Thranduil piece I've been working on, because I've apparently lost whatever tenuous control I had on my life. Also rebloggable here.

Two-Step

Thranduil doesn’t dance: well, not often, and when he does it’s with great reluctance. Or at someone else’s insistence. And if he danced back in the First Age, his skills are probably a bit rusty by now. Tauriel's being a good sport about it. 

HERE’S TO NEW BEGINNINGS, THOUGH.

She Walks In Beauty by xcgirl08
She Walks In Beauty

In other news, I seem to have walked out of “The Battle of the Five Armies” several days ago shipping Thranduil and Tauriel. Does it make a terrible amount of sense? Probably not. But there was a very interesting tension there and hey, I'm all about tension. And impossible things that will never happen. 

Also rebloggable here.

(She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.)

Pure Starlight

Supplementary material for “The Battle of Five Armies” indicates that the necklace of white gems Thranduil is so very interested in possessing was, in fact, once owned by (and originally made for) his late wife. 

Well, that knocked around inside my brain for a while, and this was the result. Sorry if the necklace is off-model!

SPOILERS FOR 'LEGEND OF KORRA: AND THE WINNER IS...'

ALSO KNOWN AS 'THE LEGEND OF KORRA: IT TOOK ME THREE DAYS TO TYPE THIS THING BECAUSE I LOST MY ABILITY TO FORM COHERENT SENTENCES SHORTLY AFTER WATCHING THE EPISODE.'

AND WHY ARE YOU EVEN SUBSCRIBED TO ME IF YOU ARE NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW

SPOILERS

....Alright, I'll just give my thoughts about Chief Lin Bei Fong the Iron Lady first, because we really got to see her abilities showcased here. No, seriously. She was the best part about this episode, and this episode was my favorite thus far.

It's amazing how far the art of metalbending has come since Toph invented the discipline: the kind of precision and control Lin used with those steel cords during her fight on the roof, coupled with the insane acrobatics (did Tenzin or Aang teach her some of that high-flying fancy-dancer footwork, perhaps?), was pretty much mindblowing. Will we ever get to see her do any traditional earthbending? Will we get to see her animate the giant metal statue of Toph that stands in front of the police station, and then go smashing through the city while sitting on its shoulders? Will we ever learn who her father is? Will we ever find out what kind of jay-walking/improper parallel parking/wearing white after Labor Day-type of charges she tried to have Pema arrested for?

MOAR. GIVE ME MOAR.

I'm also looking forward to more team-ups between Korra and Lin. Finding out that Aang and Lin were close ("I can't believe your sweet-tempered father was reincarnated into that girl!") just sort of quietly breaks my heart. And as much as I love Pema, the Toph/Aang shipper in me has to mourn a bit over the lost chance of seeing Lin and Tenzin together as a couple: but they wanted different things, and we'll hopefully get to see them mend up what was likely once a very powerful friendship and camaraderie.

Speaking of friendship and camaraderie, it was great to see our three fabulous Fire Ferrets working together so smoothly in this episode. (Who saw those three little cosplayers cheering in the stands? I do believe Mike and Bryan have created accurate representations of us.)

...But Mako. Bolin. Guys.

Please promise me that you'll eventually start backing Korra up in these fights, alright? She is strong, she is confident, and she might not even need the back-up at all, but that doesn't change the fact that you should try. Because you are the Avatar's friends, and that is what the Avatar's friends are supposed to do: no matter how outnumbered they are, or how much the enemy's skills outweigh their own. You might not realize it quite yet, but being as cut off from the Spirit World as Korra is means that she has been fighting alone all her life.

Get it? Got it? Good.  

Asami put in a brief (and briefly ominous) appearance here, but I just wanted to put in my two cents about her amidst all the speculation:

I really, truly, fervently hope she doesn't turn out to be an Equalist. Or, a willing Equalist: maybe her father is funding Amon and supplying him with his technology, and she has been made an unwilling pawn in the whole game.

But to see yet another occurrence of the tired "You should mistrust beautiful confident feminine women because they are out to steal your man and take advantage of you and stab you in the back", especially in a show whose storytelling I so love and admire, would be an almost crushing disappointment. Asami's character can be treated better than that. And I want to see what she can do in a motorcycle chase.

Not much else to say in shipping-related news, as this episode kept everything subdued, but something about Korra's comment "I'M GOING TO KNOCK TAHNO'S STUPID HAIR OFF OF HIS STUPID HEAD" seemed oddly timed....Like, he hadn't done anything particularly obnoxious towards her, specifically, just then: all he'd done was enter with that hubub/flashiness/rigamarole and outglitz Pabu's adorable circus tricks in front of the entire stadium.
