Go To

Due to this being a story set in the Avatar universe that features loads and loads of characters, there is bound to be loads of ship tease.

I thought they loved me. All these years... I kept thinking about looking for you. I couldn't ever forget one little thing you told me back then. You... you made me not afraid of the world. They made it sound so horrible. I always liked yours better; and you were right..." (Korra shifting her head on Asami's shoulder, her arms finally unfolding and circling Asami's waist) "I always worried about you waiting in the snow for me and me never arriving and I wanted to say sorry for that.
