still not over korra finale when all the previous avatars disappear no no no no no NO NO N ONO
think about that title, particularly the use of the word “legend.” I think before this finale, there wasn’t anything particularly legendary about Korra. Sure, she was the avatar and everything, but what made her separate from Aang in terms of legendariness? nothing yet.
However, now that she has re-merged with Raava, and has reset the avatar cycle, she is the NEW first avatar. She will be the one that future avatars will look back on for guidance. And just like Wan, she will be remembered as an ancient hero from the past. She has made herself into a legend.
