CANON GIRLFRIENDS I'M SO HAPPY
"he wouldn't fair well with a cactus" -my math teacher
Hi everyone, so as the title suggests I want to talk about something really important to me. Warning! LOK spoilers below

On December 19, the series finale for The Legend of Korra was released. Before I had the chance to watch it, I went on tumblr which was a bad idea as I was spoiled for the ending. I saw the ending with Korra and Asami and I was glad that they ended up together, then I keep scrolling thru my dash trying to avoid more spoilers. However, nothing could have every prepared me for actually watching the final scene of LOK. As they were talking and it was made evident that they were romantically involved, I began to tear up. By the final shots of the pair reaching the spirit portal, I was fully on weeping: tears running down my cheeks, bloodshot eyes, and the weird gasping noises. I was confused as to why I was crying so hard. Even though it was the ending to the Avatar series, one of the most influential media series on my life, I didn't expect to cry that hard. Then it hit me: I saw myself in that screen. In this "children's show" I saw queer ladies, just like me and it made me so incredibly happy. Finally, there was representation of people like me in the media that was (and still is) so important to me. Out there, there is some girl, probably much younger than me, who watched this finale and realized that what she is feeling is ok and that her feelings are real and valid. For someone who feels alienated and thrown out and possibly even threatened because of their sexuality, this is critical. I just was and still am so incredibly elated that Korra and Asami's relationship was included in the finale. At the time I began to become a fan of their relationship (season 1), it would have been considered a "crackship", seeing as they were fighting over a guy. But to see this relationship grow from the sexist trope of girls fighting over a guy to lovers was incredibly validating.
I apologize if I am ranting but I just felt the need to express some sort of feeling over this because it is probably one of the most important moments in so called "children's" media, for me at least.
