As we won’t have Korra for a long, long time, I’ve decided to come up with something that might be fun, or not. Please use this challenge to deal with your Tahorra feels for at least 30 days. After this, we can think about something else. This ship is huge and magical, so we might stumble upon some new fresh cookies once in a while, right?
Day 01: Your first reaction to Tahorra
"That makes so much sense. Why didn't I think of that?"
Day 02: When and how did you start shipping it?
Just about then. Hard.
Day 04: A song that fits Tahorra
Buffy Sainte-Marie, Cripple Creek
Day 05: Favorite Tahorra fanart
This thing here. Also, this.
Day 06: Favorite Tahorra fanfiction
Most of what's on Toe-to-Toe already. 1,000 Yuans does hit a lot of guilty-pleasure/yeah-that-works headcanon moments for me, though.
Day 07: Favorite Tahorra video
None so far- I'd love to see some.
Day 08: Favorite Tahorra headcanon
That he's got some old-school Water-Tribe tattoos under his clothes. Also, that he totally ends up her wife. Her snarky, stylish, vicious, cunning wife who can navigate her through high (and low) society with aplomb.
Day 09: Favorite Tahno moment on the show
Losing his shit in the arena.
Day 10: Favorite Korra moment on the show
The thing with Naga- she's not impressed with his attitude, and she's not about to be gulled into fouling their chances in the tournament.
Day 11: Something you think that could’ve happened involving Tahno and Korra on the show
Oh, lots- Naga dragging him in to rescue Korra from the cabin in the mountains, Korra hauling his mopey butt to Air-Temple Island to dry out after he loses his high lifestyle from the pro-bending, him being totally unimpressed with her country-girl ways and giving her a lesson on some of what the city has to offer. Him joining up and using Equalist zap-gloves ("Really, honey? One-handed gloves are sooo tacky...")
Day 12: What do you like the most about the ship?
That they challenge each other. That they're both needful of change and capable of it. And they're one of the few antagonistic ships that I can really see just chilling out and helping each other as well as making hella-frontpage scenes.
Day 13: What do you like the least about the ship?
That it'll never happen for realz.
Day 14: A random line from a Tahorra fanfiction
Day 15: A color that fits Tahno and Korra
Day 16: Another ship (from any series) that resembles Tahorra
Day 17: Favorite Tahno line on the show
"You gotta get'im for me."
Day 18: Favorite Korra line on the show
"You wanna go toe to toe with me, pretty boy?"
Day 19: Waterbender Tahno or non-bender Tahno?
Both. Non-bender for a while, but once the cure's been invented, he'll probably take it up after he's settled his affairs. Possibly after a while of avoiding it because he's afraid of losing *what makes him him* all over again. It's not going to bring back the championship, the stardom, the place in the world he had before- but damnit, it's his and he can get that good again.
Day 20: List every Tahorra-related fanwork you’ve produced so far (fanfiction, fanart, music videos, etc.)
Zilch. Need to remedy that soon.
Day 21: Favorite Tahorra graphic
Day 22: Favorite Tahorra fanwork genre (drama, smut, fluffy, etc.)
Day 23: Favorite Tahno/Korra/Tahorra blogs
Day 24: A prompt for a possible Tahorra fanfiction
Tahno is descended from the Foggy Swamp tribe. After the arena attack, the whole clan shows up to support him. "Uh-vatar, you gotta save me from my relatives!"
Day 25: A Tahorra moment that you would like to see in a fanart
Korra looking pimpin' and Tahno playing it up for the cameras, hanging off her like a gold-digger with his sugar-mama.
Day 26: In a scale from 1 to 10, how hard do you ship Tahorra?
Um... I like it better than the canon ship, but would accept it as about a level five or six crack-pairing if I could stand how Mako was written the last six episodes.
Day 27: A friend of yours that ships Tahorra
Day 28: Your reaction whenever Tahno shows up on the screen
"You look so glorious when you've been kicked in the teeth."
Day 29: Write a Tahorra drabble
Day 30: Your Tahorra-related hopes for Book 2
That it will exist? Given that I'm going to be blithely re-imagining canon as I go already, let's say that after Korra went on her vision-quest and came back with the first hints of how to cure being de-bended, she kicks Tahno's ass out of the dumps and has him take her home to the Foggy Swamp to study up on the closest thing to bloodbenders she can get. Tahno is horrified to realize she gets along better with his relatives than he does.
