I just don’t want the plot to drag Korra back to him. Or Asami. They both deserve
each otherbetter. They all deserve better.
Though the thought of him hooking up with a dashing firebender does have appeal…I’m picturing a girl who takes one look at his fighting style and just bursts into laughter, a girl who he spies firebending and is just like “WHOA. I can DO that?” as she makes ribbons and dragons and rocket boots. A street performer, maybe…
It’s not that Mako is unshippable. I just think I’d like him to go with someone a little less serious.
