Kaaay, this is highly experimental and I’m not sure I even like it. But I wanted to use color to represent their heritages, elements and bonds all at once.

  • Mako and Bolin are both dominated by the colors native to their elements but “reflect” each other’s colors as mixed-race brothers.
  • Korra as the avatar has the colors of all four nations in her. I kinda wish I’d blended more blue in in a clever manner, but whatever. I’m just goofing.
  • Then for Asami, being from Republic City and of confirmed Fire Nation heritage I have her bleeding into Mako’s red very heavily, but I wanted a little bit of green in her too under the headcanon that she’s had fire/earth mixing somewhere in her line. Purple has always been her chosen color for me—even though her color scheme in the show also leans more towards red—because it is a color not claimed by any element in particular.
  • The placement of the colors reflects their contact mostly, also intended to show how they’re all bonded in some way
  • The red string of fate is used in its more correct romantic implications throughout fanart—I decided to use it in a more liberal sense, reflecting that all kinds of bonds can tie people together

How Korra and Mako are holding hands like a couple would, and Korra and Bolin are linking elbows like friends would.

Yes. :) Furthermore, Korra’s hand is over Mako’s heart while Asami’s rests on his head, indicating his conflict in the triangle. Korra and Asami do not touch but are still connected by the string, which sources from Mako’s scarf, by the way, as a symbol of family. It is also left open ended because their family isn’t necessarily finished.

Finally the configuration of the pose was strategic. Korra leans on Mako’s advice, who leans on Asami’s kindness, who confides in Bolin, who looks up to Korra. But naturally these aren’t exclusive. Bolin depends on Mako’s skills and savvy, who needs Bolin’s optimism, for example. And so, their boxed or circular configuration means that they really are all depending on each other equally—including themselves.
