can we all just thank 0fficermako for their perfection ok
excuses. Sokka pretty much had to raise himself and Katara as well as be leader of an entire tribe and he knew it wasn’t right to cheat, he tells a flirting Ty Lee that he’s involved with Suki and shuts her down when she starts showing romantic interest in him. tired of people excusing his cheated and shifting the blame to Bolin for telling Asami she was cheated on, which should have been Mako’s to tell and apologize for.
Even if he was not raised properly, he was equipped with enough knowledge to know right from wrong. He felt guilty, he knew he would get in trouble, and yet he did not do the right thing. Everyone is allowed to make mistakes, but people need to recognize the mistakes and not excuse them. |:
Even if you like a character, you can’t excuse the mistakes they made. jfc.
- Katara raised Sokka, and they had an entire community of mothers to back them up
- Sokka was ‘involved’ with Suki when he kissed Yue yet you didn’t throw a fit about that (Why? OH MAYBE BECAUSE HE WAS CONFUSED. It’s entirely possible for a guy to be conflicted from his heart and from his mind, like Mako was).
- Mako didn’t shift blame on Bolin, he was just a bit surprised that Asami knew and questioned where she got the information from
it’s fine if you don’t like Mako, just don’t think his life was so easy that he had time to think about romance in his life. He went for Asami because his mind told him it was the logical thing to do (and he is used to listening to his mind), but he fell for Korra because his heart made him. He isn’t used to listening to his heart. I mean, you try becoming a parent at age 8 after watching your parents be murdered right in front of you and losing everything you love
yeah not easy
Dear fandom, I’m sorry Mako didn’t turn out to be the perfect guy you wanted him to be, because animated characters are supposed to be the perfect men we lack in RL. Well sorry to burst your bubbles, but he’s a realistic representation of a TEENAGE BOY. Everyone makes mistakes, nobody is perfect, and in the end he made amends for those mistakes. That’s all that matters.
This without even bringing up the fact that he NEVER cheated on Asami. It’s not like he went and fucked Korra behind her back, or entered a relationship with her. SHE kissed him and, in a human moment (because FUCK he was in love with her from the beginning but he had no FUCKING clue how to go about it), he kissed her back. I will never see how this classifies as CHEATING on someone.
and this too
