i. It wasn't right, it wasn't right, it wasn't right! Korra feels like her whole world is crashing down in front of her, as Mako introduces Asami. The sound of her heart breaking over the rushing waves of reasons, excuses, I saw him first! screams in her mind like so many futile efforts. She walks away from the two, allowing herself to be distracted, as she focuses on something else, anything else but the fact that the guy she likes is currently taken and she didn't even know.
ii. Korra is a reasonable person. She doesn't like to hate people needlessly, and so she tries to look for any excuse to hate Asami (she ran him over with her moped, she almost killed him! rings in her mind, but Mako has never seemed better, or happier). She tries to think of her as a spoiled little princess, a daddy's girl, lacks for nothing but want, yet even that does not hold water, as she is a nice and pleasant person to be around. Perhaps, had they met under different circumstances (had she not stolen Mako right under her nose) they would have been friends. But she does not want to be chummy with the girl who caused her heart to break, and then later shatter, and as their relationship grew stronger, cleaved it in two.
iii. It wasn't like they were an obnoxious couple, but they were so much in love, it was sickening. The jealousy of seeing them together runs through Korra like a vice, filling the cracks in her heart with undiluted envy. All she wants to do is hate, hate, hate, forget and hate and hate and forget and hate until there is no hate left within her and all she can do is turn away because every time she makes him laugh it is like someone is cutting her with a knife.
iv. She tries to pretend that she doesn't care that they are together. That it doesn't bother her. But Korra knows that she can lie to everyone around her, but she cannot lie to herself. Mako promised her nothing, he owes her nothing, and he is free to be with whoever he pleases. Still, reason has never been her strongest side, and she resists the overwhelming desire to crush them both and send them to oblivion.
v. Over time, the sharp pain recedes to a dull ache. Korra bides her time and waits. Perhaps Mako and Asami will live happily ever after, but perhaps not. And perhaps she may find someone who is just as good, if not better than her fellow probending teammate.
This was partially based off of a real experience. When I watched the episode, it really struck a chord with me, so I felt like I had to write this out. Anyway, just some Makorra angst. I really don't know what to think now. I actually like Asami a lot, she seems like a really nice person, and if it had been someone else she was crushing on, I honestly wouldn't have cared, and would've probably supported the pairing. But gosh, I really love Makorra like no tomorrow, so I'm in such a bind right now, because I actually kind of like Masami too! Uggghhhh! If there was ever a threesome to be shipped, it would be here!
Well, anyway, I guess we couldn't have expected Bryke to hand us Makorra so easily. I'm just really hoping that Korra won't have her heart broken by the end of the series.
