When I very first started writing UE, it wasn’t supposed to be political. Asami’s beliefs were to establish that she wasn’t a bigot. When it did turn political, I was faced with a problem: Korra had a position of extreme privilege and I spent a lot of time trying to balance her Avatar-ness with a need to avoid a white savior complex equivalent. At one point, I begged the beta to let me write a Masami version so I could at least explore the different forms of privilege.
Might be time to dust that version off.

Every time I get a comment about Asami being irredeemable in UE, I wince. Because one of the points is that no one is irredeemable. Real, sincere contrition is all that’s required. There’s a reason I picked Shady Shin to take her place on Team Avatar. Even Amon is redeemable, and I spelled out what his redemption would look like. The only difference is he won’t say “sorry” and mean it.

Would you guys be violently upset if I ended UE at Tarrlok’s defeat/Asami’s heel-face turn?

ein freund im “flow” schickte mir heute folgendes
" Das Leben spielt sich genausosehr in seinen Übergängen ab wie in seinen miteinander verbundenen Gliedern; tatsächlich scheint es dort oftmals mit mehr Nachdruck zu verlaufen, so als ob unsere Spurts und Ausfälle nach vorne die eigentliche Feuerlinie des Gefechts wären, gleich einer dünnen Flammenlinie, die sich durch das trockene Herbstfeld frißt, das der Bauer abbrennt. Auf dieser Linie leben wir sowohl vorausblickend als auch zurückblickend. Sie 'besteht' aus der Vergangenheit, insoweit sie ausdrücklich als die Fortführung der Vergangenheit erscheint; sie 'besteht' aus der Zukunft, insoweit die Zukunft ebenjene fortgeführt haben wird, sobald sie eintritt" (54-55)
"Wir leben auf der Spitze eines sich vorwärts bewegenden Wellenkammes, und unser Gefühl für die festgelegte Richtung beim Voranstürzen ist alles, was wir von unserem künftigen Weg erfassen." (45)
Aus: William James: "Pragmatismus und radikaler Empirismus"

What do you think would happen if Mr. (Hiroshi) Sato died instead of Ms. (Yasuko) Sato? How would this effect the Avatar Universe?
It’s pretty much impossible to say because we literally know nothing about Yasuko. We like to pin these very feminine ideals on her like “loving and caring” and assume she wouldn’t have let her hatred get the better of her like Hiroshi did. We don’t know if she was genius-smart like Hiroshi and Asami. We don’t know if she might have been manipulated into joining the Equalists like Hiroshi. We don’t know if she was even business-capable and if she’d have been able to take over Future Industries. For all we know, Yasuko and Asami could’ve been bought out and left to live comfortably with Asami eventually working for Varrick or something. (She’d still have her brain if nothing else.) 
We really have no idea how this could have affected everything else.... *but* there is an excellent fic that explores one possibility- Asami becomes an Equalist.

It’s exhausting to write too, You need lighter moments for pacing. Of course, if you’re me, the fluff just makes readers feel worse.
hahahaha you’re doing it right in my book then. lol

I love AO3, but it is currently sleeping outside right now after throwing up on the carpet and regurgitating the long comment I wrote. Bad AO3. Now I have to wait until after work before rewriting it.
