I mostly talk to people and reblog craploads of things. I sometimes write fic or make gifs/graphics. I comment extensively in my tags, and I am prone to headcanon about anything and everything.
I adore worldbuilding, families, and jerkbenders. Commentary and character analyses are my true loves.
Oh no, I saw something on tumblr about Mako imagining his father when he sees the scarf and it made me so sad hence this.
I think Mako would’ve worked hard to be honest even while they were on the streets. But when you’re a street kid, you may want to be good, but it’s not always possible. You gotta survive, even if it means doing things your parents told you to never do. So when they finally get desperate and have to resort to stealing, Mako leaves the scarf at their hideout/home/whatever ));;
The only headcanon I have for book 2 is that Eska’s makeup is actually tattooed onto her face.

D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t
Ahahaha, this is a good question. For some reason I cannot ship Dick/Babs. It is one of the most popular DC ships ever, and I can’t ship it. I mean, granted I’m not exactly extremely well-versed in the Batfamily lore, but I’ve read and know enough for me to form opinions. For some reason they just don’t click with me. I’m also very, very fond of Dick/Kory, which is likely a huge bias in that, but even in universes like YJ where Kory doesn’t exist I can’t bring myself to ship Dick/Babs.
G - Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it
My first OTP was Pokeshipping! Classic OTP, still adorable.
S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon
I’m not sure if this headcanon wants me to link to one or just pull one out of my brain right now, but I will just go with the latter.
Personal headcanon: Mako is really particular on the presentation of his cooking. It’s a demonstration of his love, so he likes it to look nice. Also, because he’s going to put time and effort into it, he would want it to be the very best that it can be, and that includes having things similar things chopped with clean, smooth strokes into uniform sizes. And he tries to keep wastes to a bare minimum, if he wastes anything at all. Giblets can be boiled, bones and peels used for stock, ears and feet will be fried. (You get two headcanons for the price of one. Cooking headcanons are particularly fun.)
X - 3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms
Ichigo and Rukia from Bleach, Van and Hitomi from Escaflowne, Neville and Luna from Harry Potter
When Aang’s life was already ending, Aang told Tenzin, “Tenzin, my son, remember everything I have taught you and pass it on to your children and to the Air Acolytes. And in my next lifetime, pass on the teachings back to me.”
headcanon mako hates verbal apologies because he hated saying, “sorry, Bo, no food tonight” he avoids them like the plague because having to say them out loud means he has nothing tangible to give and boys can’t be raised on apologies alone DID I WIN

Bolin liked those little firecrackers that could be carried in his pockets.
Bolin liked a lot of things, actually. Little rice balls that could be carried in his pockets, candies, little rubber bouncing balls, jacks, playing cards…anything that he could secret away and hide in his clenched chubby fists. He would beam up at whoever he’d taken it from- or gotten to buy it for him, or had just asked him if he’d seen it- with a big-cheeked grin, all proud of himself and innocence and charming all at once.
He liked all these things, and so Mako bartered. He bartered a lot of his little things. His favorite pair of shoes- not the sturdiest, but the shiniest, the fancy ones that were a little too big but still looked like they fit- for a nice holiday dinner with plenty of treats for Bolin. His winter coat for a winter bed for Pabu. He haggled about the prices for those rice balls and jacks and playing cards so that he wouldn’t one day find Bolin’s clenched chubby fists in the wrong pockets.
Mako liked things too, but he liked Bolin’s charming and innocent and proud smile more, and so he compromised. So he worked. So he bartered. And he didn’t say a word.
|lariren-shadow: Mako and Bolin watching their kids and telling them stories.|
Not gonna lie, my independent headcanoning has brought me to thinking of this before. Bolin is the kind of storyteller dad who adds in the dramatics, who changes his voice with different speakers, who lets his voice leak into his actions and just rile up any sort of audience. His kids would gasp and shriek and become so invested in his stories. Mako is the kind of storyteller dad who would cuddle up with his child(ren) in bed and tell them a story, including some of the grittier or sadder details, while stroking their hair. You can bet that some of his personal feelings come through tangentially, but the child(ren) don’t mind. They would listen with occasional interjections but mostly with rapt attention.
|pinkaffinity: OBVIOUSLY I'M GONNA ASK YOU FOR MAKORRA BABY. LIKE OF COURSE. WHO ELSE BUT THOSE TWO ASSHOLES.|
Muahahaha, this is where I come in and push an OC all up in your bee’s knees. And it’s an OC baby. You have been warned.
Okay, so personal headcanon has it that Mako and Korra only have one biological child, so I’ll only do this one to keep this short. I do have headcanons for all three of their kids, including their adopted babies. This is one that I blatantly and lovingly ripped parts off from you. <3
