“Bolin was really sick that night…
Dad asked a neighbor to look after him as we went to buy the medicine that Bolin needed
While we were coming back home a Fire bender came
He demanded everything we had, but dad refused to give, because the only thing we had at that moment was Bolin’s medicine
So the Fire Bender killed both right in front of me
I was 8…”
for more batmako stuff:
This is the definition of a joke blown outta proportion.
I just wanted to draw something so I could joke that the ship would be called Bollin but then I accidentally started to think it was cute and I just love drawing older Bolin and um.
‘if you were a year younger I would go to jail’
Holy mackeral those older Bolin sketches and all this shipping
Dear Tumblr, stop giving me so many new pairings at the same time! I can’t handle so many new emotions at the same time!
For you I’d wait… ‘Til Kingdom Come
Until my day… my day is done (x)
Woah! Bolinora. It’s been a while since I’ve seen you on my dash :0
You know, it’d be cute if Jinora ended up crushing on him at some point.
Mako’s garnered her attention by virtue of being the tall, dreamy stuff of romantic sagas, yes, but then Bolin would do things like tell her ridiculous Uncle-Sokka style jokes, play with her siblings, openly admire her for her intelligence and fighting skills, and quite likely impress her with his odd, light-footed, overall freer style of earthbending himself.
Bolin would find the crush amusing and precocious, and tell Jinora (in the most gentlemanly, gentlest way possible) that she’ll get bored of him after a while anyway and would be much better off sticking to people her own age. Okay? Okay.
(Jinora, of course, will make no such promises.)
…Give it time, I think. He’ll come into his own, and she’ll come into her maturity, and there are only six years between them anyway.
*surreptitiously adds to the tracked tags list*
You realize that this would mean that Bolin would be dating Aang’s grand…daught…errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…..
“Bizarre romance for Bolin.”
….Aang would approve: mostly because Bolin reminds him of, well, himself, and has read How to Be a Man from cover to cover several times.
(RULE #23: MAKING A GIRL FEEL HAPPY AND GOOD ABOUT HERSELF IS THE MANLIEST THING YOU CAN DO. EVER.)
And they probably wouldn’t.
But then again, I’d finally get my Earth and Air pairing. Bisons and Badgermoles. Substance and Freedom. Changing directions when met with resistance and digging in to face it head-on. Other stuff… I was being jocoserious before, but now that I’ve let myself entertain the idea a little longer….
So Mako and Korra are fire and water, and Bolin and Jinora are earth and air.
Actually, that’s not the right picture for this situation…
#EMBRACE THE GLORY THAT IS BOLINORA# IT ALLOWS HIM TO BE A COMPLETE LADIES’ MAN FOR THE ENTIRE SERIES #WITHOUT MAKING HIM SEEM LIKE A JERK OR A CHEAT #AND JINORA CAN HAVE A COMPLETE CRUSH ON HIM# AND HE CAN GET HER TO HAVE FUN FOR A CHANGE INSTEAD OF BEING SERIOUS# AND MAYBE HELP HER DEAL WITH THE TRAUMA# AND SHE CAN SHOW OFF FOR HIM WHEN SHE GETS HER TATTOOS #AND SHE CAN TWEAK THAT LITTLE STRAND OF HAIR WITH AIRBLASTS EVERY NOW AND THEN# AND BOLIN WILL ALWAYS ASK HER SISTER QUESTIONS# AND JINORA WILL ONE DAY SHOVE IKKI OUT OF THE ROOM BEFORE IKKI REVEALS THIS CRUSH# AND THEN BOLIN WILL BE ALL CONFUSED BECAUSE IKKI WAS JUST ABOUT TO EXPLAIN HOW GREAT UNCLE SOKKA FOUND HIS SPACE SWORD AGAIN# AND JINORA WILL FIND THE BOOK FOR HIM# AND THEN BOLIN WILL REVEAL THAT HE CAN’T READ WELL BECAUSE THEY WERE ORPHANS AND HE NEVER HAD A PROPER EDUCATION #SO SHE’LL TEACH HIM TO READ AND THEN HE’LL BUY COLORFUL PICTURE BOOKS #AND SHE’LL BE LEERY OF THEM BECAUSE THEY’RE TOO CHILDISH# BUT SHE’LL READ THEM TO HIM ANYWAY# OH HECK SHE DID THAT ON THE ISLAND ALREADY# YOU CANNOT UNDO THIS HEADCANON #WHAT IS HAPPENING?
…The universe needs art for this immediately and I shall make it so. Sleep is for those of weaker constitution and resolve anyway.
Not sure how many of you bore witness to this post and the notes that followed, but the conclusion I came to (very late) last night was that this pairing actually has some pretty amusing potential, if it starts with Jinora developing a precocious crush on Bolin and then building a friendship from there: they’re about 18 and 24 here, respectively.
Also, there should be more art focusing on that stubborn trademark forelock curl of Bolin’s. Because of, well, reasons.
