So, since Valentines Day was yesterday, I figured we should honour our fave couple with just why we love them so much. SO in honour of the 14th, here's 14 things we LOVE ABOUT BORRA!
1. The way Bolin looks at Korra.[link]
Like, the way he just looks on at her like she truly is the most amazing girl he's ever met and he's just in awe.
2. The way he's not intimidated by how powerful she is.[link]
When she saved him from Amon, he made her a little cupcake and brought her a flower? And thanked her? And didn't go all "Oh whatever, I'm a big strong dude I didn't need to be saved by a girl, whatevs"
3. The way they laugh together.[link]
Seriously, they had SO much fun on their little date. It was incredible. They each think the other is hilarious and obviously love to be in each other's company!
4. The way Bolin offered to take out Tarrlok for her.
"Who is this Tarrlok guy, is he bothering you?" Oh Bolin. Tarrlok is bothering ME!! SAVE ME BOLIN!
5. She's beautiful, he's GORGEOUS![link]
Seriously though. True stuff.
6. The way Bolin handled himself when he saw Mako and Korra kissing.
He's cool because he knows they gonna be together someday. And even if that possibility didn't exist, he still wants Korra in his life, and wants to be best friends with her. Even though it hurt, he won't give up Korra for anything.
7. The way Bolin accepts Korra no matter what she is or wants to be.
He may have been a little confused when Korra told him she was a waterbender and an earthbender, but he was still pretty cool with it. He was all, hey wherever your heart lies, that's cool girl. You go with that. He's practically "Hey Girl Ryan Gosling"
8. Bolin has never treated Korra badly, right from the beginning!
Unlike a certain brother of his, who has been kinda straight up douchey to Korra throughout the season.
9. Bolin does everything he can to try to cheer her up![link]
When she's having trouble with Tarrlok, when she loses her bending, Bolin is there for her any time.
10. They aren't the "New Zutara"
Though I'm not sure I fully support the theory that the creators just threw in Makorra to please the Zutara fans, there is something really special and unique about Bolin and Korra, that just isn't there with Mako and Korra.
11. Pabu and Naga are pretty much best friends, maybe more.[link]
And if you've ever seen One Hundred and One Dalmatians, your pet liking your significant other's pet is pretty gosh darn important.
12. Bolin only focuses on one girl, and that's Korra.[link]
Even when he knew that Korra liked Mako, and that he could go after another girl, maybe Asami, he doesn't. Because he knows that Korra is special and that she's worth waiting for.
13. Bolin and Korra are putting a really solid friendship foundation down that is key to a sturdy relationship.
As opposed to Makorra, which is diving in pretty fast. It doesn't seem like a relationship that speedy will last. It does sometimes, but it's rare.
14. They just look so dang good together.[link]
So what do you guys think? Do you have your own reasons? Canon, non-canon, feel free to share them!
