I shipped Makorra hard in Book 1, and played on the idea of Irosami as well. Book 2 broke my heart because Makorra broke up, and it seems like Masami’s back in the horizon.
I look at all of these with a bit of humor though. Hey, I lived without Jo and Laurie (Little Women) not ending up together.
I blame Mako for everything though, hehe. He’s a teenage boy, and in my experience many (but not all) teenage boys would rather not have conflict when it comes to relationships. I don’t doubt that Mako loves Korra, however it seems that he can’t deal with the things that come along with her being the Avatar.
In that vein, he gravitates towards Asami because though she’s got her own problems, it’s something he believes he can easily solve. It’s not supernatural. In Mako’s mind, that is probably the lesser of two evils.
At least, that’s what I think. Hnggrrrr… While I’m not against Irorra, I don’t like Masami. Maybe because I don’t like Asami much. Hah.
Oh well. Only the writers can tell what’ll happen to these pairings.
