“Take that off, you look ridiculous.”
STILL UPSET ABOUT HOW THIS EPISODE THROWS OFF MY SWAMPBENDING TAHNO FANFICTION
“Korra, stop it,” His normally suave voice has taken on an aggravated tone, and he’s shooting a dark glare at the wide grin on the Avatar’s face. “Take that off; you look ridiculous.”
Her grin gets wider as she senses the irritation in his voice. Her dark hand pats the lily pad on her head, and she winks at him. “No wonder you’re so pale; you must have never gotten any sun with this thing on your head!”
“I don’t care what your Sifu Katara told you; we don’t actually wear them as hats.” Tahno growls, flicking his bangs out of his face to brood some more. “You’re going to offend my mother so much…Why did I think this was a good idea?”
“Because you love me.” Korra says, her expression so happy and comfortable—as much as Tahno doesn’t want to admit it—that he melts a little on the inside.
“Eh, the feeling comes and goes.” Finding the opportunity to gain some ground, he smirks at her and casts his glance at the lily pads floating around them.
As he suspects, Korra lets the lily pad drop and smacks his arm. The smile has slid off her face and he has to admit that he feels slightly guilty.
It’s not guilt that makes him pick up the discarded lily pad and plop it on his own head, but it is love when she laughs and kisses him on the cheek.
His eyes protected from the shade provided by the vegetation on his head, he let his mind wander. This kinds of affection, this love, was not something familiar to Tahno. He had only dared to venture down that road once, and came out with his heart shattered. It was a hurt he never knew of. And since then, he’s transcended that pain to the countless girls he began to meet as his Probending status escalated.
Nights alone, whispering sweet nothings into a helpless dame’s ear became a routine. It was all so he could get one thing. And once he got it, he left long before the victim of the nights trapeze woke up only to have their heart meet a similar fate. He couldn’t bare to witness that happening, to see him cause someone else’s view on love become skewed and distorted.
So he lied to himself. He told himself that he would love the girl for that night. Tahno would be believable enough so that when he left, it was with a clear conscious.
That changed when she came into the picture. Everything changed. He was grateful for it though. Even now, with the the lily pad dripping water onto his face, looking up into Korra’s eyes, he was glad she was willing to break down more. Only to build him back up, and to actually love him.
stfu you two do you know what you’re doing to my feelings
