yes, we fangirl over our co-captain Di (aka korrashorts) on the SS Borra.
(left to right: di, raye, coco, and me in the back)
drew this because of all the love she’s been getting and giving of late c: a little taste of the SS Borra mini-comics to come!
WE LOVE YOU DI. YOU’RE SO FLIPPIN CUTE
AND SEXY also sorry if you’re not in it, there was too little room. dont worry though, you’ll get your moment to shine later.
some people are really mean to Makorra fans, and that is totally not cool.
but then some makorra fans turn around and go, “yo, makorra is the best thing ever! what is your problem, haterz?! they’re perfect for each other! look at the way he swung her around! that’s love!”
and i’m just like “….whut.”
ANYWAYS TAG YOUR SHIT ACCORDINGLY. don’t act like its not annoying when you’re cruising your OTPs tag and see someone dissin’ on it and stirring the shitstorm. don’t play into it! let the Makorra fandom gloat and enjoy the moment.
‘cause you know, it won’t last anyway. BORRA FTW!
PFFFBT sorry. i love you Makorra fans. but no, really. keep that shit outta the tags.
ATTENTION ALL S.S. BORRA CREWMATES:
THIS IS YOUR NEW CO-CAPTAIN SPEAKING. I just want to say what an amazing ride it’s been with all of you. We’ve cruised through some very rough seas, and that’s not an understatement. For some of you, spirits are low. But keep your chins up! We’ve made it this far—and I, for one, am not giving up on this ship. We’ve seen what this ship can do. We’ve seen the glorious potential. We’ve been there for all the feels, the rolling waves of fabulous fanart, the impossibly gorgeous gif weather—and the party’s not stopping anytime soon.
Until next season, which I can with confidence I’m looking forward to, we’ll be docking on the paradisal Borra Borra Islands. There, you can grab a friend and take a walk through the Borra Caves, or sit out under the night sky and go constellation searching for the official Borra star. Everyone on board lives in the lap of luxury. Gourmet seaweed noodles, homemade cupcakes, pool parties, makeovers, and dancing all night long! Sit back, relax, and enjoy. Trust me, I know we’re gonna have so much fun together.
We’re the ship that sticks together and laughs together. So keep on keeping on.
And if you’re still feeling a little under the weather, I’ve got a handy-dandy link right here, that will take you to an archive of Borra things, all courtesy of our amazing fellow crewmates.
And one more thing.
THIS HAS BEEN YOUR CO-CAPTAIN SPEAKING. *salutes*
And lastly, the official S.S. Borra roster: Add yourself to the list, if you’re still on board the smartest, funniest, toughest, buffest, talentedest, incrediblest ship in the world.
Don’t have a rank? Doesn’t matter, MAKE ONE.♥♥♥

I am sufficiently flustered. I receive so much love in my inbox that all I can do is hold my face and screech. Most of the time I struggle to think of what to say back (social anxiety I guess), how to let you guys know how much it all truly means to me. I’m constantly blown away that anyone reads my fics or mini-comics or rambling text posts, or takes the time to reblog/like my art. I really, really appreciate it. Thank you, you guys make my face hurt from smiling so goddamn much.
I’ll be posting some concept work soon while I figure out this future!Borra comic. It’s really going to be one hell of an undertaking (50+pages, perhaps) so I’ve got a lot of work cut out for me before I start posting “issues”.
In case you missed an earlier post about it, it’s going to take place five years into the future. Bolin has been enrolled into the police academy for over a year, nearing graduation and entry into the ranks. Lin will be present at times, having been reinstated as Chief a few years before. Korra and Mako dated for almost a year before they moved in together, but three months later they had a rough break-up and have since parted ways. Korra delves into her political work and is often traveling, but she always visits when she comes home. After the break-up Mako focuses on probending and gains international celebrity status, doing very well for himself. Asami uses her networking skills and local fame to her advantage in politics and activism, and is now the youngest member of the Republic City council, representing non-benders in meetings and during lawmaking.
I do have some, um, headcanon-y questions for you guys. If you’d like to respond or see something in the comic, you can reply to this post, send me an ask, reblog this with your thoughts, etc etc. We can also trade e-mails if you’d prefer.
What do you think learning metalbending is like? We see a bit of it with Toph in the comics, but I wonder what sticks. I’m going to have to research police academies to see what it’s like and consists of, so if you have had experience with or knowledge of that kind of environment, let me know.
I’m also curious of where to put/what to do with the rest of the characters, like Iroh, Jinora, Ikki, etc. They’re not necessarily going to be in the comic, but they might be mentioned? Idk if you have ideas lets collaborate.
While this isn’t really going to be… focused on it or especially graphic, they are adults and some scenes may be nsfw. I don’t normally post stuff like that (I even have a disclaimer on my page) so I just wanted to let you guys know…. that. Um.
One last thing, since I don’t want to clog up dashes or be a nuisance- what’s the best way, do you think, to make big regular posts like this? I’m thinking of using a cap as a “header” for each chapter and putting the rest under the cut. That way I can work big without worrying about formatting for a dash (500x700 is sooo smallll). Of course, I’ll make a master post (probably the first chapter) and add navigation later, but. Yeah. I always feel a little scared of putting art under cuts for some reason? I don’t know but I’ll stop rambling.
I love you guys. I love this fandom too much to let go off-season, you’re kinda stuck with me. (Especially the SS Borra- resident chef speaking here, dishin’ up the feelsss) WHICH REMINDS ME. I keep seeing these silly people saying silly things like that Borra is a submarine now??! sigh guys, it just isn’t true. Our ship never sank, either. The SS Borra is a magical castle in the sky where Bolin and Korra get married and eat clouds with spoons and use stars as ice cubes in their moonlight punch forever and ever.

ANYWAY. What do you think?
Don’t jump ship, whatever you do.
We may have to get out our life preservers, swim, cling to the wreckage of our ship, build a submarine, etc., but DON’T JUMP SHIP.
More conversation under the cut. Feel free to read.
i love the Borra fandom ssoooooo muuucchhh ♥♥♥♥♥ i wanna bearhug you all
