Watching season 3, Korra and Asami’s beautiful, organically-developed relationship struck a cord with me. More than any other relationship I’ve seen in media. Just seeing them together made me happy, and it brought me to explore the fandom, which in turn, brought me to your blog.
You’ve done a wonderful job posting and reblogging wonderful Korrasami stuff, as well as touching on the LGBTQ issues that Korrasami’s even implied existence brings to the fore. The support and openness warmed my heart and encouraged me to keep checking back here.
The finale crystallized something for me. Asami, caring for Korra at her weakest, kneeling there and holding her hand and promising to be there, to be anything Korra needed. I realized how much this fictional relationship speaks to me, and I realized why. I love their relationship. I envy it. It’s exactly the sort of relationship I’d wish for.
I’m a guy. I like girls. For most of my life, I assumed that was the whole equation.
Korrasami, and its fandom, and your blog, helped me realize that I’m trans. It’s helping me come to terms with it. So personally, thank you so much for providing such a warm, supportive environment over an ostensibly silly thing a bunch of us obsess over.
And next time anyone tries to even imply that representation isn’t important, that we shouldn’t try to project things into the show that they find objectionable…
A budding, entirely subtextual relationship on a cartoon led me to a personal epiphany about my own sexuality. Dozens of flags in my past seem obvious looking back, but I breezed right past them, because nothing I’d come across gave me reason to challenge my preconceptions. Korrasami did that. This fandom and your blog did that. Maybe it sounds ridiculous, but life, as a whole, generally is.
So, thank you again, thank you so much and pass that on to the whole community if you can. And know that I’m with you all, praying to the gods of culture and storytelling that this ship makes it safely to harbor.— an amazing, inspiring, heartwarming message from a user who wishes to remain anonymous (via gayfandomblog)
