Having rewatched the Legend of Korra final recently, the thing that probably bothers me most is the constant complaint that the Korrasami relationship and in turn, ending shouldn’t have happened because it was rushed. Not because the relationship wasn’t rushed—it certainly was, especially when compared to relationships in The Last Air Bender—but because so much of the show was rushed, including many heterosexual relationships, and yet this relationship seems to be the only thing that catches fire for the show wide issue.
You know what I really want in Kingdom Hearts 3?
I want the girls looking out for each other.
I want the first words on a restored Namine’s lips to be of Xion. Of the girl who had been forced into a terribly unfair decision, and faced it with such strength and goodness. I don’t want her shy and thankful and docile, as always. I want her determined and unwavering as she restores the memories of the girl who didn’t deserve to be forgotten. I want her coming back furious, raging against the unfairness of it all.
We have seen what’s on the road. We’ve seen the drug hazed, beautiful rot that followed a generation of lost boys, straight out of Peter Pan, as they searched a postwar concealer-soaked country for an example–or even just an explanation–of masculinity and what it means to be a man. We’ve seen this trauma, but it would be foolish and a tad bit pig-headed to think that the trauma of the lost boys was the only one out there. Minor Characters is not only important, but it’s essential, because it shows us the generation of lost girls. The girls under glass and in the bell jar.
My wife is having nightmares again,
Curled up tightly at my side,
as each passing car highlights another ghost
She tells me about them when I wake.
With Wittenberg University getting a second Starbucks location inside Thomas library, it’s set in stone that Springfield will have at least four of the coffee shops in town by this time next year. While this news may be exciting to fans of the company—especially to those college students who couldn’t get their Starbucks fix while away at school—it could mean death for small, local shops in the area.
To be a sheltered child
With carpet feet
And temper mild
To look out the glass
the barrier between here and there
And wherever, is beyond that turn.
