But I find it odd that we barely know the characters yet, and people are already shipping.
Pleh wrote:Of course, what reason could Mako have to not initiate a relationship? Well, the real reason is because he's a coward. It's not a bad thing, it's just a sign of Mako's age and maturity. All men are either cowards or jerks when it comes to their feelings (especially towards women) and the mark of a true man is their capacity to overcome their overwhelming fear or pride, whichever they tend to have more trouble controlling. However, he won't realize this until much later in the show. The reason he tells himself that he won't pursue her is because he knows his brother Bolin is smitten with her and he doesn't want to break his brother's heart by stealing Korra from him. He's decided to let Bolin pursue her and so he tries to let his feelings for Korra go, but the process of doing this brings a maturity to Mako which starts to counter his natural cowardice, making him more into a man. Inevitably, Korra begins falling in love with Mako, and Mako, in trying to do away with his love by ridding himself of puppy-love feelings, winds up making room in his heart for a deeper kind of love which begins to grow. Bolin becomes jealous and there's a point at which it becomes painfully clear to all three what's happening, even if they don't understand or want it to happen. At some point, Bolin and Mako have to fight it out, because men don't understand their feelings very well and beating on each other is a primal, instinctive way men express their emotions with each other. Until they fight, the wounds that form in the brotherhood will not be able to heal, but after they bruise each other enough, they'll remember their love for each other and come to an understanding. Bolin will realize that he is being selfish and that Korra and Mako have a sincere love that Bolin only wishes to have and he'll step aside. By confronting Bolin, Mako will have overcome his fear of breaking his brother's heart and finally have the courage to express his love for Korra to her. Normally there is a complication at this point in the story, but there is currently insufficient data on the plot and the characters to determine what kind of complication should arise at this point. But I would hope that there WOULD be a complication, because after Mako decides to love Korra with all his heart, then he will have to pay the price for loving her, which is usually the price of fighting to win her love either by saving her from a villain, or pursuing her love despite her rejecting him, or sometimes that's when tragedy strikes and the girl is lost for whatever reason. Whatever the price he has to pay, after fighting his brother for her, he will have to pay that dowry and it will change who he is forever. That is character development, though, and so I fear that Bryke won't make Mako do anything to mature into the kind of man he needs to be in order to love Korra. Characters don't develop in Avatar. But that's how the story SHOULD go.
