like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
The fandom response to this “we care about all the characters… except Tahno” comment is getting on my last fucking nerve. On the 1 hand we have people going, “LOLOLOL who cares about Tahno anyway??” with the implication that those of us who do care about him are idiots for still feeling that way. On the other hand we have Tahno fans going on about how Bryke have personally insulted them & they’re so victimized as Tahno fans.
I’m done. I’m gonna post the last chap of Korra & the Wolfbats tonight & then I think it’s time to stay away from tumblr for a few days.

I have finished writing the last chapter of Korra & the Wolfbats. It just needs to be typed & edited.
I have to say… these are my favorite screenshots from the show.
